Longview Farm’s annual stock review, Miss White has long earned her highest individual grade and became a member of the High School squad that won the trophy for the following year.
• A new flag was raised on the lawn of the court, almost completely broken by the wind. This time without a ceremony, the janitor simply hung it on the rope and hoisted it.

When the remains of the first flag were removed by the ropes and released, it was cut into souvenirs by the court’s special patriotic custom.

In this part of the work, a handful of people are busy working, and the buildings are rapidly showing a beautiful appearance.
