An accident which threw a
heavy pall of gloom over two
towns occurred at Paris Tuesday
afternoon. W. H. Stewart, of
Honey Grove, was driving his .

On account of the street car the
child could not see Mr. Stewart’s
car and Mr. Stewart could not
see the child in time to stop his
car. When he did see the child
Mr. Stewart applied the brakes
and the car skidded some dis-
tance. The child was caught be-
tween the fender and the wheel,
fell and was dragged a short dis-
tance. Mr. Stewart picked the
little boy and the boy’s mother
up and took them to the sani-
tarium, where the child was ex-
amined and treated. Examina-
tion showed that the child was
injured internally About seven
o’clock the little boy died.
After taking the little boy and
his mother to the sanitarium and
learning what he could of the
child’s injuries, Mr. Stewart
started to drive home, but when
he reached Gene Erwin’s, a mile
and a half from town, he was so

There has been a decided im-
provement in the condition of
the rural schools since he went
into office. Then thirty-five per
cent of the teachers of the coun-
ty held second grade county cer-
tificates. Now there are only
six teachers in the county who
hold such certificates. During
the past two years twenty-seven
new modern buildings have been
erected or old ones properly re-
paired to meet the requirements,
while five or more have issued
and bonds for building purposes.
There are now sixty bonded dis-
tricts in the county. The cur-

Beautiful Funeral Car.
Jones & Brumit’s new auto

Thursday evening. It was ship-

and was driven from there to
Honey Grove by Henry Ramsey
and Robert Brumit. The car is
a product of the Sayers & Sco-
ville factory, a firm that makes
more hearses than any concern
in the United States. The body
of the car is beautiful, with all
modern improvements and con-
veniences, and the engine is 70-
horse power. The cost of the

vent loss to them. He believes
that the teacher is worthy of his
hire, and that to secure the best
talent, prompt payment of his
salaries without discount is a
,matter of simple justice. He
the has given much attention to the
needs of the rural schools, and
teachers, trustees and patrons
alike agree that the schools are
in fine condition as a result of
his policy. He has never failed
to go when called and has ever
heeded the school.
In case the people should again
choose him for the place, he
promises that his watchword
shall be courtesy, efficiency and
promptness every moment of
the time he holds a commission
from the people of the county.
Courteous treatment for every
person having business with the
office will be the unwavering
policy of his administration. He
will do his best to serve impar-
tially the great cause of public
education in this county. His
past record is the best guarantee
of what his future one will be.
