Transcript of Article


The program of last meeting consisted of essays on making money at home. Miss Lizzie Coles gave quite an instructive talk on the subject.

One of the most enjoyable Leap Year Parties of the season was given at Vandeville Hall, March 4, 1892. Promptly at 8 p. m. Mr. F. B. Jones' carriages arrived at the hall. At the sound of the bugles the ladies entered the carriages and were driven to the homes of their gentleman friends. At 9: 30 the gentlemen, with their fair escorts returned to the ball. The couples were as follows: Messrs. R. F. Brown, W. Irving, William T. Kenny, William Edmunds, H. H. Ferrall, J. Thomas, P. Stott, C. Just, P. Fleming, T. Poindexter, John Coles, T. G. Wyatt, John Bullock, A. F. Angel, Edward Anderson, C. H. Brown, Misses Rosa Coles, Ellen Taylor, Mary Buckner, Lizzie Martin, Isetta Fleming, Josephine Jackson, Amelia Parker, Maggie Martin, Fannie V. West, H. Wyatt, Mrs. Emma Reeves, Miss A. D. Browne, Jennie Martin. An excellent time was enjoyed by all until the "wee small hours."

Mr. Miller's daughter died very suddenly after two days illness. Her funeral took place from Mt. Zion Baptist Church.

Mr. Blakey passed away last week.

Look out for an account of another Leap Year Reception next week.
