Editor News: I hare been a subscriber to your paper ever since its first Issue, I think in 1887. The personals do nob interest me like they once did, because most of them are strangers to me now. News items from my old home county (Russell,) as well as most parts of Adair, interest me because I am familiar with the locality and most of the family names, but mvost of the individuals mentioned are strangers to me, from the fact my home has been in this county over fifteen years. But often mention is made and communications printed in your paper from parties who are as familiar to me almost as -- my own family. I am glad that Bro. Z. T. Williams through your columns is keeping us posted as to his travels in Texas. His Christian life has been worth a great deal to me. From the Montpelier correspondent I notice that W. C. Grider and wife are spending the winter with their two children in the West Jim Bayard and Ella. In 1888 their home was mine for seven months. Their family was an interesting one to me and their home a pleasant one. Laura and I were raised in adjoining homes, and I can only think of W. C. Grider and wife as Willis and Laura. When their first baby was born, my father, Wm. "Vaughan, was asked to suggest a name for the boy. My had had a slight stroke a few years before. She was b6rn May 25, 1867, died Feb., 2, 1917, age 49 years, 8 months, 7 days. She was united in marriage'tb J. W. McKinney 'in 1882, there was born to this union two children. He died 1887 leaving her still in the-wa- r of Christ striving to win eternal life. In 1888 she was united in mar rj age to Solomon Stotts, living togather until the end came Besides her husband stfe leaves two children, two brothers, and many relatives and friends to mourrKjheir loss. She pro cessed faith in Christ about 20 years ago and joined the M. E. Church, living a devoted christian until the end came, and then said she' was trusting in the Lord Aunt Lizzie was loved by all who knew her and will be missed by the entire neighborhood It was a sad scene as the husband and children watched the mother leave home never to return. She was carried to the family burying ground and laid to reast by her former husband, after funeral services by Rev. J. E. Stotts.

Gilbert, a series of questions on the Heading Circle work of the present school year with the request that I give all the teachers who desire it a test on these questions. These questions are based on three of the five reading circle books for this school year "Carney's Country Life and the Country School," "Leiper's Language Work in the Elementary Schools" and "Community Civics" by Field and Nearing. If teacher in Adair county has studied these books anddesires to be examined on them, such teacher will please report to me at once and a tijne will be set for the test. Supt. Gilbert is desirious that this may be done as a "step toward organizing and standardizing the work of the Teachers' Reading Circle Course. According to his instructions those who do this work and pass a satisfactory test will be given credit on their salary schedules. This means higher wages for those who do this work and lower wages for those who do not. I regret that Adair county teachers seem to take so little interest in the Eeading Circle work. One white teacher and two colored ones bought copies of McMurray's Handbook for Teachers and Field and hearing's Community Civics from my office this school year. The Eeading Circle work will help any teacher who studies it diligently. It is worth while. It will increase the teachers chances of promotion.
