To Our Friends.
As a little kick or push will
often send a large stone rolling
and crashing down a hill, so in
time of trouble and misfortune a
kind act or word spoken will el-
evate the depressed and down-
cast spirit and troubled feelings
of those meeting with misfor-
tune. My family and self de-
sire to offer our heart-felt thanks
to the Eldorado people who
helped and offered all the assis-
tance that it was possible to ren-
der under the circumstances and
personally I want to say that I
did not know the Eldorado peo-
ple would prove so kind and
good by actual test.

A DISASTROUS HAIL STORM

Eldorado. Ok la.
There ia but one thing that can keep us from making
a good grain crop this year, and that is destruction by
hail. We have had but very little hail for the pa$t two
years, but the chances are that we will have plenty of
it this year. You cannot afford to run the risk of the
destruction of your entire crop in a few minutes by
HAIL when you can INSURE in A RELIABLE HAIL IN-
SURANCE COMPANY for 66c per acre. Come in at once
and let me insure your growing crop against hail.
$1600 to the sedtion is all that my company will accept.

"Just Like Percy."
At the Auditorium last Friday
night some of the students of
the High School presented a
three-act drama entitled "Just
Like Percy" to a full house.
Each character had his or her
part well committed, and there
was not a single hitch in the en-
Mrs. Lanham had the prepar-
ation of the play in hand, and
her ability as a trainer is well
known. The characters were
selected for their peculiar adap-
j tation to the parts played, and
i they did not let a moment drag
throughout the entire perfor-
L A quartet by boys of the high
school was given a decided en-
core by the audience. These
boys have b®en under the direc-
tion of Mrs W. G. Lewis, and to
her is due in a lanre measure the
success of this number.
The young people will pre-
sent the play at Olustee
tonight, and may soon visit other
neighboring towns. The pro-
ceeds realized from putting on
the play will be used in further-
ing the interests of the oratori-
cal and athletic association.

Spelling is one subject in which
I find that the graded schools of
the towns and cities have little
or no advantage over the rural
schools. In fact some of our
best spellers are found in the
country schools. I earnestly
hope that the rural teachers will
take interest in this work, and
hope to have a large number of
contestants in each division.

A BANK ACCOUNT
There is scarcely any busi-
ness which can get along
without a bank account. To
sav nothing of the prestige it
affords, its convenience and
tmancial aid and accommodation are invaluable to the indi-
vidual or a growing concern. Let us explain to you in detail
other advantages of opening an account-with us.
