His place at the Commercial Bank here is being filled by Warren A. Woods, Jr. The new mail schedule between Woodville and Centreville went into effect on Monday morning and is proving a great Convenience to the patrons of the WoodviIle postoffice. Besides the new schedule, we are authorized to say that the mails will still be carried on both of the trains leaving this town each morning, this information having been furnished to Postmaster Wood dring the week :, The pecan crop of this county is very promising indeed, although in many places the trees have been af- fected by some disease that is de- stroying a large percentage of the nutm This, however, is confined to only a few varieties of the paper. shell pecans. These nuts are begin. ning to make their appearance on the market and will soon be coming in in great quantities. Mr. and Mr Sam P. Johnson, of Ferriday, La., passed through Wood. rifle Sunday morning on their way to the western part of the county on a short visit. Mr. Johnson, who is manager of several large plantation in Concordi parish, La., reported to this writer that he had tried the plan of poisoning boll weevils this season with very satlsactory result and would advise the cotton farmers to adopt it in the future. Union services were held at the court house in this town on Sunday evening at 7:45 o'clock with sermon by Mr. Lawder, pastor of the Wood. rills Christian church, and a large audience in attendance. It has been decided to hold the union merrier each_SSunday evening at the court house in this town instead of at one of the churches, as has been the custom in the past. The plan of having the several ministers conduct the service on stated Sundays is to be continued. Miss Gertrude Howwrd, superin- tendent of the Trinity Episcopal Sunday School in Natchez, and prom- inent in educational work in that town, was here Sunday " the in- vitation of Rev. D. E. Holt and de- livered a lecture in St. Paurs Epis- copal church at the 11 o'clock ser- vice on that morning on the organi- zation of Sunday Schools. Her ad- dress was most unusually interesting and instructive and necessaxily greatly enjoyed. We are indeed sorry to learn of the sudden death of the nine-month old son of Mr. and Mrs. MiUa'd D. Nettles, Of Cold Springs, which occurred at the home Of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Owens in this town on Satur- day afternoon at 3:45 o'clock. The remains of the little boy were in- terred in the family burial ground at Hopewell church on Sunday af- ternoon at 3 o'clock, the services be- ing conducted by Mr. Lawder, pastor of the Woodville Christian church Our sincere sympathy is extended to the bereaved parents in the death of their loved one. Mr. and Mrs. Green Morris and four of their children, of Catahouis parish, La., and his sister, Mrs. Ver- non MacCammon, of Arkansas City, Ark., arrived here during the week on a visit to relatives and friends in this county and were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. W. V. Morris. Mr. Morris and Mrs. KseOammon are children ef the late Mr. and Mrs. Mabry Morris, and are former res- ident of this county, but this is their first visit "back home" fo Preimre to fall several years past.
