Ben Murray has some serious illness in his family: two cases of pneumonia and three of flu. It looks as if all my recover, but they are not yet out of danger.
The revival meeting has dragged thru two weeks with very little interest manifested. Weather is supposed to be the major obstacle; we give Clifton credit for staying with it under very unfavorable circumstances. This scribe would have quit about the third night.
The Sunday school that was to be organized last Sunday also was rained out, but it only takes about two drops of rain to rain out such meetings at Liberty. The Sunday School spirit is like the groundhog, it hibernated in the fall and will not come out until about the 2nd day of February, then it sees its shadow and goes back for another 40 days, so we cannot expect to have a good Sunday School until about April 10.
Lots of moving just now; people are swapping places, hoping to better themselves.
The political pot has begun to boil just a little. We are anticipating a great time this year shaking hands with the would-be servants of the deer peepul (sic). The voters will be in the limelight until the election, for without the run-off there will be a number of candidates for office. Let us enjoy it boys, for after election time you will get no further attention until next time. RUFE BOLTS
