The members of the Caldwell
Fishing Club met in the court
house Tuesday morning and de-
cided to order o lot of bream for
their big lake out in the sand
hills. The dum has been com-
pleted for about a year and the
water now covers about four
acres of ground, but when the
pond Í9 tilled up after a few big
rains, when they come, it is es-
timnted that the water will cover
about thirty acres. When full
the depth of the lake will bo fif-
teen or twenty feet in the deep-
est places. It is feed by never
failing sand hill springs and will

Sunday School Picnic
The members/of the Junior
Epworth League of the Metho-
dist church and some invited
guests, making about forty in
all, bad a picnic in Banty Hart-
graves' pasture Saturday, aid
all had an enjoyable time till the
rain came. Most of the crowd
went in wagons and floats, and
the horses were turned loose to
graze out there. When the rain
was seen approaching and the
crowd began getting ready to re-
turn, it was discovered that
three of the horses had escaped
arid returned to town. This
necessitated a wait till the horses
could be sent for and brought
back. Hy this time the rain
was coming dowsi in torrents
and in the lauguage of one of
the attendants, "the crowd got
as wet as fish." Except for the
rain, the affair was a very pleas-
Km broideries—a tremendous
assortment at Fagans.
