The new year is here, and the sound of maul and ax can be heard. There is plenty of work for the farmer to do yet. There is not much changes in our neighborhood. Mr.Ralph Odom has moved near Farmerville and there are a few marriages.
Mr. Pearson Ramsey has moved to the “Old Pearson place.”
Miss Ella Hughes attended the marriage of her niece, Miss Ada Carmichael to Mr. Hamp Lewis, Wednesday near Bernice.
Prof. B. M. Mathew’s singing school will close Wednesday,. He has 24 pupils enrolled.
Miss Jossie Hughes has been on the sick list but is up now.
There was an all day singing at Zion Hill Sunday. There was a large crowd and plenty of dinner and every one reported a nice time. The visiting guests were Misses Honor Odom and Fannie Chandler and Messrs Ollie Clark and Willie Covington of Farmerville, Messrs Tom and Rose Furgereon and Roy Lewis of Bernice.
Mr. William Pearson and wife have a bouncing boy.
From the way a certain young man is making regular visits to Mr. Hughes he must mean business.
Hog killing has been the fad since Xmas and Mrs. James Compton has made one-hundred pound of sausage. The new year has found plenty of “hog and hominy.”
