Hinton has been having a
monster three-days oelobraticn
olosing with today that has prov-

restaurants are overworked to
feed the people and tho very
haylofts are ocoupiod with cots
and pallets. Just west of tho
business portion is a clear spaoo
about as large aa i oity blook.
This spaco is oooupied by rows of
stands with streets between and
ending with a big merry-go-round
and a dance platform.
Hinton has a band that plays
very oreditablo also. It met the
trains bringing a pleasing notice
of the oelebration to the inoomers

happy analogy oompared him-

tended mention was an agricul-
tural bxhibit. The pavilion was

No care you have my work to spoil.
You drive me to despair the very

mont of hor institute but a'cc
for the interest she has shown in
tho schools of this oounty. We
fully reoognizo that we haye a
oounty superintendent seoond to
none in Ih territory. Her en-
thusiasm is shown by tho iaot
that she paid personal visits to
oaoh and oyery distriot schoohin
this county offering advice and
onoouragement to every teacher.
Her wide acquaintance and
and sympathy with the teaoherB
as well as her broad experienoe
and effioienoy makes hor almost
indispbnaible to the teachers of
this oounty. Wo join in hoping
sh may oontinue at the head of
tho eduoational system of Caddo
oounty where she may carry in-
to completion the work Bhe has
so well begun.
We believe it would bo a mis-
take to change superintendents
and hence most heartily recoom-
mend her reelection irrespective
of party affiliations.
