BARNESVILLE, GEORGIA, THURSDAY, MARCH 26. 1925
Pinta Lodge. No. 88, A. F. & A.
M., most heartily welcomes to our
little city the Georgia Federated
Music Clubs. We rejoice at your
coming because you are the means
of enlightening humanity in one of
the noblest of sciences—music—that
science that gives the natural world
communion with the . spiritual, a
science that is especially dwelt upon
in the teachings of this ancient fi-a
ternity which came to dwell in the
lives of Barnesville men in the year
1849 through the influence of such
noble men as J. S. Willis, M. G.
Howard, Frances Reviere. S. C.
Campbell, J. W. Elder, D. W. Allen,
L. W. Morrison, who secured a
charter for our local iouge under the
above name October 31, 1849, and
they and their successors have en
deavored to be useful in bringing to
light the secrets of a happy, pros
perous and contented community.
We feel that your coming will lend
renewed courage in reaching that
high goal. %

HAD BAD FALL
Mrs. Iverson Middlebrooks, an
aged and beloved woman, had the
misfortune to fall at the home of her
sob, Mr. J. T. MiddlebrookV, last
Friday, from which she sustained se
rious injuries, which will probably
confine her to her bed for quite a
while. She had just recovered suf
ficiently from a recent illness to be
up and around the house, being, of
course, very weak. While walking
across a room a cat ran in front of
her, tripping her up, when she fell
heavily upon the floor, breaking her
right hip, her shoulder and her collar
bone, all injuries more or less serious
to one of her age.
Drs. J. A. Corry and C. H. Willis
were promptly called and have been
devoted in their service, as have all
her loved ones and neighbors.
It is the sincere hope of every
body that she will rapidly improve
and regain her health.
Judge John F. Redding, who has
been ill for the past week, is much
improved, which is exceedingly grati
fying to his hundreds of friends in
Barnesville and throughout this sec
tion of Georgia. He was stricken
suddenly and unexpectedly early last
week and his loved ones and friends
at first were apprehensive as to hi3
condition but he has steadily im
proved and everybody is now hoping
to see him out again in a 3hort time.
Judge Redding holds the universal
respect and love of the people of the
community and since they heard of
his illness have been very so
licitous for his recovery.

From the November, 1922, Issue of
The Musical Monitor, New
Third Vice President orf Georgia Fed
eration of Music Clubs, Mrs.
C. M. Dunn, Barnesville,
Mrs. C. M. Dunn of Barnesville,
Georgia, is among the live women
who are really helping to make
America musical. She was elected
president of The Three Arts club at
its organization in April, 1922, and
tljis office she still hplds. In 1922
and 1923 she organized a Junior and
a Juvenile Three Arts club and in
1924 the Gordon Glee club in the
school where she is director of mu
sic and teacher of pianoforte and
organ. She studied pianoforte with
F. F. Lincoln and pipe organ with
Henry M. Dunham at the New Eng
land Conservatory, Boston, Mass.
Barnesville has only 3,500 inhabi
tants but must be very much alive
for it also has a Music Study club
at the A. & M. College. All these
clubs are federated with the Georgia
Federation of Music clubs and the
National Federation of Music clubs.
The Georgia Federation of Music
clubs showed its appreciation of Mrs.
Dunn’s work by making her third

LITTLE MOTHERS’ LEAGUES;
GIRLS SHOULD JOIN
The State Board of Health has been
very much interested in the organiza
tion of Little Mothers’ Leagues, be
lieving that this is a good work, and
worthy of everyone's hearty support.
The Parent-Teacher Associations and
the Home Demonstration Agents of
the Agriculture College have been of
great assistance, in this work. Many
classes have already been held In va
rious parts of the State, and we sin
cerely hope that our county will see
to It that our school girls are given
this very beneficial Instruction.
The lessons are prepared and fur
nished by the State Board of Health.
The classes are Instructed by the
teacher In the school, and when the
lessons have been finished and the
class, if of sufficient size, the State
furnishes a nurse to examine the chil
dren and to give demonstrations In
how to dress the baby, how to give
It a bath, how to prepare its food, the
signs of illness, etc. To succeessful
children she gives a beautiful printed
certificate under the signature of Dr.
Abercrombie, Commissioner of Health,
countersigned by the nurse, also a
“Little Mothers’ League” pin having
the great Seal of Georgia in its cen
ter, a very serviceable and artistic
piece of jewelry.
The information given is very prac
tical. and will be serviceable through
out the child’s life. There Is nothing
In the lessons to which anyone can
object, but all praise has been given
them. The State Board of Health will <
be glad to send the lessons to any
school that Is interested and will take
up with them the necessary details
of the completion of the course.
Another matter along this line in
which the State Board of Health is
interested Is the la.truction of moth
ers about their babies: they call them
’’Mothers’ Classes.” The Parent-Teach
er Associations, Women’ll Clubs or the
mothers themselves can organize
these. Any one interested should write
to Division of Maternity and Infancy,
