IDF LDC MARTIN fUOSS Owned Emd oqperated by a citizen oaf this ccomnnmity. Many Were Present at Exercises Held at Old Building on Monday. The old Stone school Kolise at Macon, which has been restored as nearly as possible to the original by Henry Ford, was reopened Monday, September 28; at 10:30 a. m. The school house, when it fell into disuse as such, was purchased by W. P. Cotton, who built a brick store fronting it. It was used as a part of this store until purchased by Mr. Ford. The school house stands on land which formerly belonged to the John Pennington farm. The deed for the lot is still in existence, A stone tablet cut from a large boulder on the Pennington estate bears the inscription—Pennington School District 1, 1851. The black walnut furniture and woodwork came from old lumber found in the locality.* There are 24 double walnut desks with hinged lids. The first number on the program at the reopening of the school was the raising of the flag by Mrs. Ele- nore Pennington Cottonj the oldest living member of the Pennington family. She was assisted by Janette Morden, the youngest member of the family. After the flag raising, the pupils of the old Stone school house, were asked to take seats inside, where roll call was taken. About fifteen responded. Three old songs were sung, a. few remarks from Jerome./Travis, Toledo, and also ii"Oni Mr. Cameron of Dearborn, School was then ; dismissed and all repaired to'^the old Pennington home, where a bountiful luncheon was servea by an army of chefs sent by Henry Ford. Those from Saline who were present were- Mrs. May Morden and daughter. Miss Mary, Mr. and Mrs. W. M, .Fowler, Miss Julia Gordon, Mr. and Mrs. 3. ___' Cottfen and mother, Mrs. Elenore Cot&n, and Sites Brjggs. 1 '•_~~~ C H E C K! When you leave a Dixie station you're "ready to go."

IT IS ITS OWN BEST SALESMAN! CHRIS. VOLZ Five Point Place East Michigan Ave. Rural-Urban Dinner Given By Rotarians Judge Harding, Teeumseh, Spoke at Thursday Noon Meeting. Fourteen Guests Wer* Entertained By Members of the Local Organization. New York Central Railroad Purchases Michigan Central THE ECHO Dedicated to the Pupils <of -the Old Stone .School House, Macon. If I were a voice this is -what I would say: "Strange thinjgs iave ^happened .since yesterday. My -old frame tottered, was ready to -fall, iiittle strength .had I in -rafter or wall. All too well I .knew i was weak, ^and _\d— I .thought of my jpast as .a tale tthat is told— .A. .(dreamer .of dreams, a beggar, a seer— I bided my time on this spot so dear. That was yesterday. Today you can .see Tm sturdy and strong and ready to ibe Of service to man, through .many years -more. As itrue ±o .my .trust, :as in .days of yore. 'Though .years, many scor^, pass _vbt my head,, The dream will remain -of days Hong since jfled. I'M. see the dear .faces jeer in at ine door, • Hear voices and foot-falls resounding once more. The old rom takes life, -as a.lesson 3s droned. An apple escapes, which nobody owned. The squeaky slate pencil that worked with a -will, The uneasy scuffle of feet never still. A ^ly bite of apple, a stray wad of gum, The big boy Who dozed o'er a puz- ling sum. The copper-tipped boots, the pantalets berilled, The old thumb-worn booksj the copy a*nd quill, The spots on the wall, when ink flew apace, And paper wads stuck as they, too, found a place. I see through the years, as I ponder Once more The forest that lay with its shade at my door. Many wise pedagogues ruled over the school, They taught the three R's and the Golden Rule. Theirs the simple life—no ill-gotten fame— A duty well done was their only aim. So I'm standing,today twist the old and the new, The old dreams are mine, the new ones for you. I'll serve well the present nor turn from the past, As I look down the ages with purpose steadfast. And then, at the close of life's little day, The lessons all finished, the books put away, There'll come a clear call, with compassion replete, Tve set a new copy, rest here at my feet.'" —Mrs. B. D. Hammond, Detroit, Mich. Headquarters for Local Branch is To be Moved from Hillsdale To Jackson. Fourteen visitors attended the rural-urban dinner, given by the Rotarians last Thursday noon at> The Tavern. Among the guests from out of town were Judge William F. Harding, Teeumseh, George D. Wilcox, Lansing and "Bob" Curtiss of Detroit. Those from Saline and vicinity were: F. R. Clements, A. J, Lutz, C. D. Finkbeiner, William Austin, Austin S, Robison, Fred R. Braun and Fred Hertler. Judge Harding, who for sometime past has been engaged in the south, especially in the Vicinity of Mobile, Alabama, gave a very interesting talk on the methods by which the educational facilities of negro children are being improved. He stated that in many places at the present time schools for negro children are kept in session no longer than two months during the year. Such instances, however, are being improved through action taken by various religious organizations similar to the one in which he served. The average white man in the south believes that the negro child does not care to learn, according to Judge Harding, and is, too lazy or careless to attend his classes when he has the opportunity. This is.not the case, however, as statistics show that the colored children show an amount of intelligence equal to that ■of the whites and an aptitude for study that is truly astonishing. In several cases, when the colored population of certain southern school districts were asked to give financial aid to support their schools for an eight months' period, they did so, much "better than anticipated and no outside finances were needed for the operaHon of the institution. Adjustment on the New York Central railroads, due to the recent purchase of the Michigan Central, was in evidence at the local station Thursday when extra dispatcher's phones were installed. These phones are connected directly with the dispatcher's offices in Jackson and will be cut over probably October 1. This workas in connection with the recent announcement that headquarters for this division will be transferred from Hillsdale to Jackson. The Lansing division consists of Lansings Fort Wayne and Ypsilanti branches, which have had .superintendent's offices in Hillsdale. Headquarters now are being moved from Hillsdale to be cobined with the Michigan Central offices in Jackson. Due to this readjustment, J, B. Hartline, Who was agent here for a short time after the retirement of Frank Rose, and who has served four years at Bridgewater, has been transferred to Otsego where he expects to begin working this week. Frank Kessler of Ft. Wayne, Ind.., took charge of the Bridgewater station last week. All sales cash. No credit. Mercantile Company. Saline Highest prices paid for your pouh try and pigs.
