^The guests were served to fruit
punch and wafers before being seat-
ed. Mrs. Linville then called them
to order and made a happy welcome
speech. Miss Thoma played a piano
S°Henry Hunter, representing the
school board, told the teachers they
would be glad to co-operate with
them, and tried to tell them not to
be hard on the children, “for just
look at the parents,” he added.
Mrs. W. S. White, in behalf of the
Club Ladies of the city, gave a cor-
dial welcome, stating that they were
ready to help and assist in every way.
Mrs. R. L. Reid sang “Hours of
Memory’’ after which Rev. D®
in behalf of the ministers of Elk City
made a talk. He could not find the
word welcome in the Bible, but he
did find where it said be hospitable,
—or “love the stranger.” and he
knew Elk City people would do that,
and one thing was sure, they had
churches in Elk City “to fit everf-
0DMrs. Gibbs sang a solo and Miss
Hera Jane Robinson played a piano
S°Then the fun began. Mrs. Reid
and Prof. Steele showed the crowd
how they could get acquainted with
that “Howdedo” song that Mr.
1 Twichell taught while here at the
Community Institute. This was fine
Then they played the rabbit and dog
game, and it was fun to see Supt
Richards, L. D. Young, R. L. Reid,
Frank Snoddy, the members of the
school board, Mayor Sam Brown and
others as they ran to hunt a pen.
The game ended just as Mayor Brown
became scared and gave an unearthly
yell when a couple of healthy rabbit*
popped into his pen. Everbody
laughed during this game and L. D.
Young said he believd everyone would
live an extra ten years because of it.
This is only a beginning of the
good times to bo held in the school
house auditorium the coming year.
This is a splendid way for the parents
and teachers to get together.
It would be hard to find a better
looking and more willing crowd of
teachers and having twenty-six of
them it shows that Elk City is to he
congratulated in their selection. We
bespeak a successful Bchool year.
A FINS SALE
Jim O’Donnell says the sale at
I Mrs. L. P. Hale’s Tuesday seemed
like old times. There was a big
crowd and everything sold well. The
sale amounted to about $1,800.00 and
all was caeh except $60.00 One
I span of mules brought $860.00;
I yearling mule sold for $78.00; _
cow fer $86.00 and hogs sold high.
The farm machinery brought an un-
1 usually good price. It pays to have
I good live stock on a farm if you
1 want a good sale.

A BEAUTIFUL DEATH
Ack Davis received word last week
of the death of hs neice, Vera Davis,
of Emerson, Iowa.
Later, a letter received from his
father, R. L. Davis, formerly of Elk
City, told of her death. He said:;
“She died so happy, calling all the
family to her bedside and kissed each
one good by and asked them to meet
her in Heaven. Then she aeked her
father to read a chapter in the Bible.
When he was through, she led in
repeating the Lord’s Prayer, then she
prayed and in her prayer she asked
the Dear Lord to bless each one in
her home, and then said, “not just
in our home Dear Lord, but bless the
Then she said, “Oh’ what a big
light’’ and reached out both her arms
as far as she could and said, “Oh it
is Jesus coming for me." It was
wonderful for a child of her age.
