It has been quite a while since “dots” were sent from this place; therefore please excuse the following:
Miss Aliba Post and Jewell Carroll left for Park, Texas, on the 23rd to spend Christmas with relatives and friends.
Dr. A. J. Thomas, who has been located at Spearsville for two years has gone to New Orleans.
Messrs. J. W. Nicklas, Dr. C. S. McDonald and wife, Hop Ward and wife, all of Wyatt, La., are among their old friends and relatives in and near Lillie.
On the night of the 24th, the school at Union Grove gave quite an entertaining concert under the superintendence of Miss Inez Buckley, their teacher. Quite a number of recitations and dialogues, interspersed with instrumental music, were rendered. All did quite well considering the fact that this school has not had a concert before in several years. Many of the pieces rendered attracted much attention and admiration. The arrangement of program, training of pupils, and the erecting and decorating of stage, etc., are evidences of tact and ability in their teacher. The exercises were closed by a nice song by the school. The Christmas tree was then undressed and its contents distributed to the delight of little folks and others. Miss Buckley deserves credit for the labor and patience exercised, and the school should be encouraged to persevere in their efforts to advance.
