Prof. W. L. Gilbert opened school at this place last Monday with 33 pupils.

Considering the inclemency of the weather

we think 33 is a good opening. Mr Arthur Stinchcomb and wife

have moved from their former home in Shakerag to the place where Mr Berry  lived near Fayetteville. We are glad to have

them as neighbors again.


The Adams Comedy Company, a traveling troop, headed by Capt. C. L. Adams, of the Texas Rangers, CSA, aged
