Wildersville News

Our little town is on a boom. A. H. FRONABARGER has about completed his residence. RUSH & Co. are having their gin enlarged. The boys says they will gin 500 bales this season.

Our school, which was taught by PROF. JOE H. MCCALL, closed Friday. He taught a good school and we hope that should he continue to teach, we may secure his services again. It is said he will accept a position as salesman in the mammoth dry goods store of F. P. PARKER, Bargertown.

P. E. PARKER, cotton buyer, went to Lexington to buy the first bale of cotton.

First Bale of Cotton

The first bale of cotton was delivered yesterday by A. H. FRONABARGER of Wildersville and sold to E. M. WATSON for 12.5 cents per pound.
