Markham Column
March 26, 1920



Miss Etta Barber, who is attending the University, came home last Friday for a few days' visit to the home folks. She will return to Austin today--Tuesday.


There was quite a number of ladies from here who attended the Matagorda County Federation meeting at Palacios, Saturday.


Mrs. W. J. Luder and Mrs. B. J. Jones have been in San Marcos the past week visiting their daughters, who are in school here.


The building fever seems to have stuck Markham , as two residences are in course of construction at this one by Mr. Winston, and the other by Mr. G. W. Segrest, both of whom found it necessary, in order to secure a place of residence for their family. There has been no vacant houses in Markham for a long time, which also speaks well for the prosperity of the place.


The Missionary Society met last Wednesday with Mrs. C. C. Mason. The Voice Program was given, lead by Mrs. C. B. Fisher. Dainty refreshments of fruit salad with whipped cream, and cake, were served by the hostesses. Mrs. Mason and Mrs. Thompson, and each guest present was presented with a St. Patrick's favor by little Jaynice Mason. It is needless to say that the afternoon was enjoyed by all.


Mr. E. E. Fancher, who left here in January for San Antonio has returned to be with Mr. Sig Brown, in his mercantile business. His family will return later.


The Markham Mothers and Community Welfare Club will co-operate with the school here and have a community get-to-gether meeting Friday night at the school house. A program will be given by the school children, and refreshments served and we hope a general good time will be enjoyed by all.


Mesdames Pat and Frank Thompson, of Bay City , were visitors here Wednesday at the Women's Missionary meeting. We were glad, indeed, to have them present.
