Oak Dale School closed Thursday with Mrs. Fannie E. DALBY teacher. An excellent
program was rendered on the last day and a number of visitors were present. Our
teacher was a good one and the school was dismissed with sadness. The Ina school

but a good school preceded.
Tuesday, June 12th, was a day made memorable by a host of people, as this was Barnet
CLINTON'S 40th birthday. A congregation of about 250 people gathered at his home to
celebrate his birthday. Mr. Clinton was away form home at the time most of the crowd
arrived and when he came he was surprised to see such a large number although it greatly
pleased him. A table about 50 feet long was erected, while almost everything imaginable
was there to eat. After dinner there was instrumental music and also chin music.
In the afternoon a short talk was made by Rev. Davis CLINTON which was very pleasing
to the audience. People were present from Trenton, Benton, Sessor, Dareville, Fitzgerrell,
Bonnie, Mt. Vernon, St. Louis and all over the surrounding neighborhood. At a late hour
in the afternoon all departed for their homes wishing many more such happy occasions and
wishing Mr. CLINTON many other pleasant birthdays. Mr. CLINTON treated gentlemen to
excellent cigars. Mrs. Amanda CLINTON and Miss Emma FENTON, of Trenton, were present
at the birthday dinner and visited relatives at this place last week. Mrs. CLINTON is
a real old lady and the crowd was delighted to see her present. They returned to their
home Saturday morning.

At the noon hour we were advised that a lunch awaited our attention and we
were conducted to a cool, shady spot on the lawn and were introduced to a
table loaded down with all the good things that could be conjured up by the
mind of a good housewife, and amid the pleasant jests and inimitable wit of
Dave WRIGHT, we availed ourselves of the opportunity afforded us.
This is the first time since 1865, when John W. ADAMS came home from the
Civil War, that all of these brothers and sisters had been together and
the afternoon was spent in a pleasant visit, after which the guests all
departed to their respective homes.
This occasion will long be remembered by those present, especially the
