Dear Readers of The Times.
Guess you are wondering what has become of us. We are still here, but have neglected writing
for some time. A joint program was rendered by the school Friday afternoon, which was enjoyed
by all present. Several attended church at this place yesterday, regardless of the bad weather.
Tom Nelson, from Chicago, is visiting his father in this community. Work began this morning on
the new highway from Spring Hill Church to Prentiss County.

Hey! Valley, how about a ball game some Friday afternoon; both boys and girls
Miss Esther Wynn, who is teaching at Barnes Chapel, spent the week-end with homefolks. Colfus
Tennison seems to be very proud of his new Chevrolet. Mrs. Maggie Haney and children have
moved to Corinth. We are sorry to lose them, but hope they will like their new home. Miss Leo
Tucker spent the week-end with her grandparents. As news is scarce we will “hop” along.
Health is very good at this writing. Some fine cases of blues, not serious and very common in our
part of the world. Quite a number attended the musical entertainment given by our neighbour,
West Ham. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Oliver Milford and wife were visiting relatives
in Iuka Saturday. Mrs. Ella Pannell and two little sons, Curtis and Cloyce, are visiting homefolks
at Hamburg, Tenn., this week. Just a word to the readers of this splendid paper. Let’s talk with
our neighbours and friends and get those in our part to subscribe so they may enjoy our county
news, and also know about all the good things that happen each week around us. Wishing for the
editor and readers of this good paper much happiness, and may we do more in the year that is
before us to do the Lord’s will than we have done in the past. BIG BOY.
