OF INTEREST IN THE
THE FLIGHT OF THE ARROW
The life of man
Is an arrow’s flight,
Out of darkness
And out of the light
Into darkness again.
Perhaps to pleasure,
Perhaps to pain!
There must be something,
Above, or below;
A mighty Eow,
A hand that tires not,
A sleepless eye
That sees the arrows
Fly, and fly;
One who knows
Why we live—and die.
—R. H. Stoddard.
These two words are among
the gems of our language; spoken
or written they are sweet and
full of meaning. What, then, is
the reason for so many people
forgetting to use them on occa
sions when they would be valua
ble? Whenever any one has done
a kindness, however small, when
we have received a gift of any
kind, whether large or small,
when a friend has shown us cour
tesy of any kind, then certainly
it should be acknowledged by us.
Possibly presents have been
sent on some joyful occasion;
flowers have been ordered for us,
to mark jov or sympathy, or
books have been ordered to be
sent to us to help in whiling away
3, tedious journey. If no acknowl
edgment has been received from
us when the bill came in, what
are our friends to do?
“Thank you” should be said or
written in return for each and
every kindness and the neglect
of such trifling courtesy goes far
toward marring our characters.
The Pyerian club will meet at
their club room Friday afternoon
at 4 o’clock and all members are
urged to be present.
Mrs. Willis Morrison will be
the charming hostess to the
Young Mothers club Thursday af
ternoon of next week.
An interesting affair of the
week and one which was a de
lightful treat to the fortunate
guests present, was the studio
recital given by the pupils of Miss
Viola Slaughter at her home on
Third street, Thursday evening
at 8 o’clock. The well chosen se
lections so beautifully mastered
and rendered displayed thorough
training and the remarkable skill
of both teacher and pupil.

Mrs. Settle Hostess To Rook
Among the lovely social affairs
of the week was on Wednesday
afternoon, when Mrs. Morrison
Settle entertained the Rook club
at her attractive bungalow, on j

Ida Hendrick, Mrs. J. M. Currie
and Miss Fannie Gibson were
hostesses to the Larkin D. Wat
son chapter, U. D. C., at an en
joyable meeting at the home of
Mrs. Mallet, on Thursday after
noon. Bowls of sweet peas and
vases of red and white roses were
seen in the decorations of the
living room and hall and the ices
and cakes served continued the
pretty color idea of red and white.
The program for the afternoon
began with the chapter song,
“America,” followed by the
Lord’s Prayer in concert, after
which came the business discus
sion. This being the last meet
ing of the year until September,
many important questions were
discussed and settled.
The piano selection by Miss
Birdinette Manley, a duet by
Mesdames Crum and Ham and
Miss Nettie Rae Pittman’s read
ing delighted the guests, while
the unique and entertaining con
test, suggested in a reading by
Mrs. Jack Currie, proved a charm

A New Machine At The
Jackson National Bank
This machine is really a wonderful
set of steel brains which we are put
ting to work in our accounting de
With it we can handle our figure
work faster than ever before and at
the same time be sure that every item
in our books is RIGHT.
Helps Us Give You Better Service
By the machine method, every de
positor’s account is kept in balance
ALL THE TIME and there are no
mistakes such as are unavoidable
with other ways of handling figures.
The time saving made possible by
the machine gives us an opportunity
to improve the service to our custom
ers in all departments of the bank.

“Vacation season is creeping near,

Will have packed his trunk and gone

We wish to elect our new officers,
And bid the teachers ‘Good-bye.’

The time is the tenth at half past three,
The object is very, very important,
The refreshments are—come and see.

In consequence almost every
one of the eighty members of the
association were present on this
interesting, delightful and im-
portant occasion. A fall report
of the year’s work, which will be
seen elsewhere in these columns,
was given by Miss Bessie Wal
drop, and the organization should
feel justly proud of the part it
has taken in the general uplift of
the school. Under the able di
rection of Mrs. O’Kelley, with
the assistance of the other com
petent officers, the association has
added much to the educational
and material welfare of the stu
dents, and with the co-operation
of the parents in genera! they
hope to put forth renewed efforts
for the coming year, for which
