The Toung Woman's Sewing Circle
needs no introduction to you. It has
been organized for several years and
has done good work. The past year
has been a very successful one, two
sales having been held, one In the
early summer and one in December.
Besides these bazars, two cake and
candy sales were conducted, and orders
for cakes, ialad dressing. et, hem hemstitching,
stitching, hemstitching, embroidering initials and
hand sewing were taken throughout
the year. Not a little charity work has
been done, too; such as outfitting a
family of five with sweaters, outing
flannel and ginghams and supplying
quilts to those in need. But the so society
ciety society has had two special interests, the
orphanage and missions the proceeds
of the sales going to the orphanage
the free-will offerings to missions. The
orphanage management requested the
offering to be sent in July, so we sent
a box from the two societies and
church valued at $105 and $125 in cash
from the sewing circle. At the De December
cember December sale $125.07 was realized, but
as our apportionment was already more
than met for the orphanage, and we
wanted to share in the new church
building lot. we Invested $100 In its
purchase, leaving $25.07 in bank. After
much discussion and consultation with
the F. R. g; M. S., it was decided to
unite the two societies to study and
work for missions, while the sewing
society should add church aid to their
orphanage work. Accordingly they un undertook
dertook undertook to prepare and have clean the
church for the convention and aided In
securing homes for delegates. $231.80
was given to home, state and foreign
mission work, including $50 to the
Chipley Memorial building fund.
This month a small box has been
packed for the orphanage, of quilts,
coats and woolen things valued at $30.
You will see from the brief account
that the sewing circle gave $456.80 in
cash, besides the boxes that were sent
-a very creditable showing, and a
large part of the church's gifts, espe especially
cially especially when you consider that we have
not more than thirty active members.
Think how much work could be done if
we had say half the ladles In our

TWO XEGHO BOYS DROWNED
A pathetic tragedy occurred Satur Saturday
day Saturday at the northeast corner of the city,
although the sad details were not
known till yesterday afternoon.
Saturday morning two young sons of
Edward Hodges, a blacksmith at the
Ocala Iron Works, went to the water
hole two hundred yards northeast of
Mr. E. C. Smith's residence, to gather
some moss from the trees for the cows.
The boys were Edward and Curry, aged
about nine and' thirteen years, though
they seemed older, as they were well
grown for their years.
There Is a small boat in the water
hole and they went out in this to the
middle of the pond, where it is said to
be fifteen feet deep. The boat was
upset and the boys were thrown out
and must have sank Immediately. They
were not missed for some time and
search was not commenced for them
until near dusk, Saturday. The par parents

had been seen at the pond, and an in investigation

was resumed. Hooks were made and
attached to poles and quite a large
party worked all through the morning.
A skiff was borrowed from fire Chief
Hamp Chambers, which was hauled to
the pond and from this the men work-'
ed, while others waded in as far as
they could go and raked the edges. The
pond is not more than an acre In ex extent

The body of one boy was found about
1 o'clock and the other about three.
The county authorities having such
matters in charge went out and look looked

there was no use of putting the county
to the expense of a coroner's inquest,

were drowned accidentally.

a face and say "Smarty! You think
you're smart, don't you?" And no

seemed to fit the present case.
There was not a particle of doubt
that Elsie Wangness had deliberately

all loved Violet half to death and were
sitting up nights planning entertain

hotly, if she didn't have first right to

What was hardest to bear was
Elsie's sweet commiseration. Her

impossible for her to capture a hand handsome
