John S Bowden has moved near Mountain View, at which place he will teach the winter term of school.

The Center Valley school opened Monday with Prof W S Grimstead as teacher. This is the Prof's third term there, and a successful term is assured for he always gives satisfaction.

Ashmore & Loyd, our enterprising merchants, have by courteous and honest dealings built up a good trade here.

Probably next to gravestones for children, homemade stones touch me the most.

And when you combine the two. . .

Imagine the emotions running through you as you select the rock on which you will carve a name.
