who made a very interesting talk to
the scouts and told them that their
success in life as well as in scout
work was limited only by their ef-
forts. The following advancements

D. C. McEver, Willis Moses, J. M.

These courts of honor will be held
each month and it is hoped that the
parents and citizens will have as much
interest and enthusiasm as the boys
showed Saturday evening.
The boys wish to thank Key Bros.

Thogmartin for the use of their dis-
play windows and all the others who
offered their windows, and the or-

On Thursday of the past week a
most interesting meeting of the P-T-A
was held in the grammar school audi-
torium. The third lesson of the char-
acter training course was given by

of character training in the child.

6:30 o’clock at the home of Alonzo
Mitchell where the family was mak-

born July 28, 1866 in California and
thirty-four years ago came to Lam-
pasas to reside. He was married
December 23, 1900, to Miss Minnie
Holman and they continued to reside
here until fifteen years ago when they
moved to Brownwood. The family re-
turned here in February of this year
and Mr. Buckland has been confined
to his bed since that time.
Mr. Buckland operated a machine
shop while in Lampasas and had many
friends throughout this section who
regret to learn of his passing away.
He was a member of the Christian
church and for some time served as
a member of the official board of the

Mesdames A. D. McLean, Monroe
Maj-es and Charles Stokes were joint
hostesses with Mrs. Authur Perry Fri-
day evening featuring a miscellane-
ous shower for Miss Lucile Flem-
ming. Miss Fleipming is to become the
bride of Clarence Lockhart on May
28. Mrs. Perry presented the guests
to the receiving line which was com-
posed of Mesdames A. D. McLean,
J. J. Mason of San Antonio; Miss
Lucile Flemming, Mrs. Beulah Lock-
hart, Mrs. Chas E. Stokes and Mrs.
Miss Cora Barber invited each to
register in the dainty bride’s book
which was in the form of a heart with
two hearts painted on the cover, with
a padlock on which was the inscrip-
tion “Lockhart.” This was presided
over by Miss Katherine Mason, niece
of the honoree. Misses Lucile Harrell
and Alice Casbeer assisted with the
disposal of wi’aps. When the guests
were seated pencils and leaflets were
passed by Mrs. H. J. Abney with the
request to write a tried and true
recipe. These were later assembled
into book form and presented to the
guest of honor. The program which
followed was greatly enjoyed. First
on the program was a solo by Miss
Beatrice Casbeer accompanied by Miss
Olene Casbeer. She very graciously
responded to an encore. Next came
Clementine Abney in pianologue with
Mrs. C. C. Abney at the piano. Then
sored by Miss Bessie Page, won the church Tuesday afternoon with the

ponding secretary, Mrs. C. H. Faires;
treasurer, Mrs. E. J. Noyes.
With such a splendid corps of of-
ficers our work for the coming year
should certainly go forward.
The program which followed was
instructive, interesting and enjoyable.
“Individual education of the child” by
Mrs. C. E. Stokes, was splendid. So
many times the child that is thought
to be stupid and a misfit is merely
the misguided and undirected child
needing an understanding guidance.
Other points brought out were also
beneficial. “By the waters of Minne-
tonka” by Thurlow Lieurance was
beautifully rendered by Mrs. W. H.
Moses. Mrs. Moses gave a brief com-
mentary on Indian music that was
very interesting and helped in our
appreciation of the Indian music.
Mrs. Gertrude Vaden gave “Humane
Education.” This was splendid and
many good thoughts were brought out
in educating the child along this line.
During the social hour that follow-
ed Mesdames H. J. Abney, N. B. Tay-
lor, C. C. Abney and W. E. Martin
served punch and cake to the thirty
many difficulties as to health, etc.,

rainfall of Monday night will be of
untold benefit to the ranges and grain
crop. There was considerable wind
here during the night but no damages
those people, and the people were ap-
preciative in the main. Mrs. Bryan
Casbeer talked on the American ne-
gro and brought some very interest-
ing facts about the development of
the negro in the last 70 yeai’s, show-
ing their ability to manage business
and how they have entered the pro-
fessional fields despite the difficul-
ties of being shut out of so many
places of learning. And we venture
to say that they have made the great-
est advancement of any people of the
world in the same length of time.
The meeting closed with the Lord’s
prayer in concert. We extend our
sympathy to all of our sick absentees.
