Various articles and items from the front page of The Review, High Point, N.C., December 22, 1911
The Review announced last week
that it would receive contributions to the “Empty Stocking Fund,” the names of
the contributors to be published in The
Review and amount turned over to Miss Clara Cox for disposition. The idea
is to see that those little boys and girls who would perhaps not receive any
toys, get something to make them happy.
Miss Cox knows of several cases and if there are any others who want to
contribute the editor or Miss Cox will receive it and proper acknowledgement made
in next paper. We regret a larger amount was not handed in but we are sure it
was overlooked by those that would like to have contributed but just forgot.
The list to date as follows:
The Review, $2
D.H. Milton, $1
Mrs. Jesse R. Harrison, $1
Leonard-Beavans-Stamey Co., $1
Miss Etta Ireland, 50 cents
Moffitt Furnishing Co., $1
Mr. J.C. Kellum, a former resident of this place, died last week.

A local concern, the Pittsburg Plate Glass Company has the contract for the
plate glass windows for the new postoffice. It is expected every thing will be
in readiness to open the new postoffice to the public by the latter part of February,
if not before.
Dr. and Mrs. Tyree went to Oxford this week to attend the funeral services

Saturday night two negroes became engaged in a quarrel along the railroad in
the eastern part of the city with the result that one of the combatants was
struck in the head with an axe which plowed its way several inches across the
noggin of one. Their troubles were told the Recorder Monday and a continuance
of a few days was granted.
Another Robbery at the Same Place
Saturday night the British Woolen Mills was entered for the second time
within less than two months and as before several suits of clothes were taken.
The thiefs were particular this time and took only what “fitted” their form,
leaving odd coats and pants in some instances. There was no bars or other
safeguards against the windows and it was easy sailing.
A Nice Sign
Wrightenberry-Morrison Co., has placed an electric sign, a large boot, in
front of their place of business. It attracts the attention of all who pass by.
Other merchants would do well to also get up an electric sign for their places
of business. Most all kinds of advertising pays.
Entertainments at the Churches
Monday night at the M.E. church a cantata entitled “Jolly times with Old
Santa Claus.” Exercises begin at 7:30.
The same night at the M.P. church beginning at 7 p.m. an interesting
entertainment will be held in which Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will take part.
First Baptist church a cantata entitled “the Greatest day of the year,” will
be given this Friday night.
The First Presbyterian church will hold their entertainment on Monday night.
A large number of special prizes will be awarded and the exercises altogether
will be quite interesting.
This Friday night at the Friends church a Christmas Tableau illustrating the
yuletide events in foreign lands.
This Saturday night at South Main street M.E. Church “Our First Christmas”
will be an interesting cantata.
Pastor Resigns Sunday
Sunday at South Main Street M.E. church Rev. G.E. Eaves tendered his
resignation as pastor. Mr. Eaves will travel for the present. Later he says his
intention is to be an evangelist, secure a tent and preach the Word of God here
and there. His successor has not been named yet.
Extension of Car Line
Work will soon begin on the extension of the car line from the corner of
Main and Commerce streets to Hamilton and out Green street to a point beyond
the silk mill. A large force of hands will be employed as the company has only
four months in which to complete the work. Already the rails for another mile
of track is here and the poles have been ordered.
This move forward by the Public Service Company looks good to High Point.
