Monroe Gazette, December 31, 1891

Aitch, Dec. 28

Christmas seemed to be a very dull day about our little hamlet. Everything was quiet and undisturbed; not a sound could be heard that sounded anything like Christmas. The hunters began to desert in the morning, retiring to the different peaks hoping to witness a fox chase; but from some cause, not starting any fox, they returned in the evening, badly disappointed. All the enjoyments had during the day was a little game of baseball in the afternoon. As Christmas comes but once a year it should be the liveliest day of the year.

Misses Amanda Crum, Maggie Penn, Alice Ullom, Albertine Crum, Emma Edgar, Lillie Crum and Mr. S. D. Crum, all of Antioch, visited our school last Monday.
