Wilmar news

Attention everybody! Next Sunday morning, Easter, a Cantata will be given at the Methodist Church at 11 o'clock. So wend your way after Sunday School to hear this lovely music and readings. As the pastor is to be at Rock Springs there will be no preaching service, anywhere in Wilmar, so far as we know now.

Mrs. Fred Blankinship of Warren visited her mother, Mrs. P.M. White and family Sunday and her three daughters returned home with her.

Mr. Leonard Bird and mother, Mrs. M.E. Bird, Mrs. C.L. Bird, Mrs. R.A. McClintock and Mrs. W.S. Anderson drove to Monticello Sunday and heard a splendid Palm Sunday sermon by the pastor, Rev. Harris at the Methodist Church, then had dinner in the lovely new home of Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Bird - enjoying their hospitality and a fine meal. Mrs. Wm. Bulloch of Dermott was also present.

Mr. and Mrs. Winifred Wilson of Dermott spent Sunday with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. Green and Earl.

Mrs. Clarence Harper and baby of Sheridan were guests of Mr. and Mrs. N. Green the past weekend.

Mrs. Ed Trantham is in the Dr. Price Clinic, having undergone an operation last week.

Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Wiscaver and little daughter of Gloster, Miss., were here last week preparing to move there, where Mr. Wiscaver has found employment with more remuneration.

Mr. Geo. Wilkinson spent the weekend at A. & M. College.

After an absence of about two weeks Wm. (or better known as Bill) Rash has returned to his work here with Pomeroy-McGowin Co.

At last the Methodist parsonage is being treated to some white paint. It will be a relief to have the old red stain covered, and we hope this will make a great improvement in the looks of the building.

Thursday afternoon one of Wilmar's oldest and most prominent Negro men was killed instantly as he was arriving home with a load of poles for making into stove wood. As the wagon crossed a ditch nearing the house, it seems a pole became dislocated and caught by an axle of the wagon, reversed and fell back across the neck causing death.
