Already has it been prophesied that the life of Union Parish Teachers’ Association will be short. The teachers of the parish must not let this prophecy become true. Let us make the people of the parish feel that there are at least a few teachers who are determined that this work shall be a success.

The people can do much to help us in this work.

Would you like for the Association to meet in your neighborhood? At the last meeting o f the association few people seemed to know what the teachers were there for. Everyone should be glad to have the association meet at their school and should be present to lend their encouragement.

The next meeting will be in Farmerville on August 20, 1904. Everybody come.
