FROM THE SCHOOLS
About School Libi
Rolls for the
Thirty or thjjpfy-fivi new books
have been added to tfe school li-
braries du/mg the/past week,
most of which liay£ gone to the
grade lib ftiries^ Another order
will be made up in the future for
both high school and grade lib-
raries. The building up of a good
school library is a slow and ex-
pensive undertaking but we are
gradually doing that thing in the
school. Practically all of the high
school books ordered during the
> past two and a half years have
been ,for school room use and are
helps in the school room tasks.
The school appreciates the help of
the people of the - community who
have made it possible to add a
large number of books during the
past two years, since all money
expended for library and labora-
tory equipment during the pres-
ent administration of the school
lias been raised without calling
on the School Board for school
In this connection the school
wishes to acknowledge the receipt
of a two tray cabinet and cards
for cataloguing the books of the
library, given by Mr. M. D.
Wolverton. The superintendent
and teachers are now engaged in
the task of arranging a card for
each book on which will be typed
the name of the book, the name
of the author, the name of the
publisher and the price of each
book. This will enable the school
to keep an alphabetical list of all
authors whose books are in the
library, thus making it possible
to determine what books are in
he school and prevent duplica-
i in ordering, books for differ-
deSire,v also! to acknowdelge
gift of five Texas highway
presented to the school by
)er and Eagan. These maps
satisfy a great need, in the
des especially, as we did not
iv an individual map of Texas.

AN EARLY MORNING
A love , romance dating from
school days culminated in the
ringing of wedding bells last
Sunday morning at eight o’clock
when Miss Mary Lillian- Young
and Mr. Richard R. Murrell were
united in marriage at the home
of the bride’s father, Mr. J. A.
Young. Rev. R. D. Murrell, father
of the groom, performed the im-
pressive ceremony which joined
two loving and trusting hearts
into one destiny.
On account of the death of the
Grandmother of the bride, Mrs.
M. C. Deal, one week ago, the
wedding was a quiet one, but-
entered. Rev. Murrell lead the
way to the altar, just in front
of the great open fire place, and
the popular young couple were
soon made man and wife. They
left immediately in a car for
Pine Bluff, Arkansas, where they
will make their future home.
The bride wore a pretty gray
coat suit with trimmings of
black and with gloves and hat
en suit, and she never looked
more lovely than upon this truly
important occasion. She is the
oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
J. A. Young and has lived sev-
eral years in Megargel, where she
has endeared herself to all with
whom she has come in contact,
and is most deservedly popular.
She finished her educational
course at Clarendon College.

Mr. Murrell is to be congratula-
ted upon securing his life wish
in wedding the school girl sweet-
heart, who was,.,his first and only
choice. He is an enterprising
young business man of Pine Bluff
where he is known as an upright
gentleman of highest integrity
and sterling worth.
A long, happy life, a smoothe
and useful path through the
vista of years, is the wish of their

J. F. ISHAM OF WEST
FORK, DIES SUDDENLY
J. F. Isham of Westfork died
suddenly at his home January 3,
1923. He fell dead near the lots.
He had been in bad health for
some time, his trouble having been
pronounced a leakage of the heart
and he was never left by him-
self very long at a time. His
daughter, having misses him that
morning, went to look for him
and found him prostrate on the
ground. She managed to drag
him to the house.
Medical aid was immediately
summoned, but to no purpose, the
spirit already having departed to
make its home with the Heavenly
Host, where sickness and death
The funeral services were held
in the -Methodist church at Olney,
the pastor, Rev. Council, conduct-
ing the service. He was assisted
by Rev. Perry Harmonson, a Bap-
tist minister of Westfork, who had
been a neighbor and friend to the
deceased for a number of years.
The body was lovingly laid to
rest in the Olney cemetery.
Mr. Isham leaves a wife and
four children: Pearl, Ethel, Ar-
mour and Ernest, all being mar-
ried except Miss Pearl. The En-
terprise extends its sjunpathy to
the bereaved family.
