Mrs. Rhoda Davis, who lived with her widowed daughter near Lockhart, died a few days ago after a brief illness.

Mr. B. F. Post and several members of his family are now suffering with roseola at Lillie.

Last Sunday morning Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Farrar, on waking, found their baby child, about three months old, dead. It had been puny all its life, and only weighed about four pounds at birth.

Mr. W. G. Brown has his residence up and will probably move into it soon.

School opened at Union Grove, in Cornie Fork, last week with a large attendance for a country school.

Rumor says that Mr. Silverthorn, of Upland, Ark., has purchased an interest in the planner at Lillie.

A negro house near Mr. Joe Denton’s (dwelling and smoke house) caught fire one night last week and a considerable amount of meat and lard and the contents of the dwelling were consumed.
