Cass Station.

We need rain.

Felton Jones, of Cartersville, was at Cass Saturday.

Prof. Marshall is making arrangements to open the public term of school at Wofford’s Academy, Monday, June 20th.

Mrs. V. L. Ray, of Cedartown, is visiting Mrs. Dobbins.

Mrs. G. A. Veach, of Adairsville, is down on a visit to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Dobbins.

Mr. Dick Milam was visiting in this vicinity Sunday evening.

We had prayer meeting Sunday night at the M. E. Church.  This is a step in the right direction.  There will be meeting every Sunday night hereafter.

The Hargis family had a picnic and family reunion at the Hargis homestead (the home of R. R. Hargis) one-half mile from Cass, on Saturday, May 28.  Although it was a family reunion, Captain Hargis invited some of his friends and neighbors to enjoy the affair with them.  There was quite a large number present, and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves immensely.  Capt. Hargis said they had met for the purpose of having a reunion of the family and celebrating their father’s birthday.  He wanted all to enjoy themselves and have a nice time.  This is always the way with Mr. Hargis.  He closed his little speech by saying “eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you may die.”  It was a grand affair, and all were in high spirits.  Capt. Dave Wyly and lady, of Atlanta, and “Nabor” Freeman and lady, of Cartersville, were present.

Harry Hargis spent Sunday in Atlanta.
