We are having the warmest and driest fall that has been known for a long time if ever. Some of the wells that have been producing plenty of water during the past are now dry and the people have to haul water from some of their more fortunate neighbors.

Miss Hattie White, of Sparrows Point, has had the misfortune to be badly burned on one of her arms; Miss Clemmie Jarvis, her sister, has gone up to be with her during her suffering; she is now said to be improving.

Our Achilles school enrollment is still increasing. It is now 268. Botetourt pupils are still coming in.

Misses Mamie, Geraldine and Bernice Rowe spent Thanksgiving squirrel hunting.

We are sorry to report the absence of one of our teachers, Mrs. W.D. Pointer, on account of illness.

We are glad to have Miss Esther Blake back with us, after some weeks of absence.
