The Cedartown Standard
January 15, 1903


Thursday morning, just before dinner, our school was thrown into wild confushion by the announcement that the ceiling was a fire. The terra cptta piping had ignited the wooden pieces that supported it. Heroic measures and presence of mind saved the building from destruction. The school unanimously voted thanks to the young men pupils and the "bucket and ladder brigade" for their timely aid, and to Messrs. Burkhalter, Cameron, Cantrell and Cates, with their helper, Mr. Julius Wiley, in securing the piping from further danger.

The family of Mr. Austin moved to Etna last week.

Quite an acquisition has been added to our already prosperous school in the form of a literary society. It was suggestively named "The Flint Hill Literary Club," and pursuant to notice, elected: Mr. Jones Garrard, President; Miss Minnie Hogg, Vice President; Miss Bernice Reynolds, Secretary. It is the intention to hold semi-monthly meetings, and to encourage the reading of solid literature and writing of original essays, etc. and to stimulate the establishing of a school library.

The Cedartown Postoffice certainly did a rushing business during December, and Dr. W. A. Chapman, our genial Postmaster, and his popular assistants are feeling happy over the record. There were 525 money orders issued by the Cedartown office during December. The Atlanta office only issued 6,085 during the same period, making a much better showing for Cedartown in Proportion to size of the two cities.
