Rev. W. T. Renfro, former presiding elder of the Jackson- ville district, and later Metho dist pastor at Nacogdoches, died at Greenville Tuesday afternoon. Details of his death are lacking, but the end ap- pears to have come very sud- denly and unexpectedly. It is reported that he had suffered previous heart attacks, and on one occasion remarked to his wife that he thought his time had come. He had been trans- ferred out of this Conference, and had been serving the Kava- naugh Methodist Church in Greenville for the past year. Mayor T. E. Acker, Presi- dent E. M. Stanton of Lon Mor- ris and perhaps other friends have gone to Greenville to at- tend the funeral. Bro. Renfro, who was known here by the familiar name of "Bill," was one of the best- loved citizens of Jacksonville during his residence here, and there are many friends to offer their sincere sympathy to the bereaved family. — Jackson- ville Progress. mm mil Literary Society Entertained The Wfaittier Literary Society gave a pa...

New York.—The morals of college |£lrla and boys do not suffer from mem- Ibershlp In sororities or fraternities, despite the head-wagglngs of unfriend- ly critics. Such is the conclusion of Bita 8. Halle, who has Just completed a sur- vey of the Greek-letter societies from .coast to coast. The verdict is based observation of thousands of stu- dents, on talks with officials of the lnterfraternlty conference and the Pan-Hellenic association, and on the reports of college authorities whose duty It Is to watch over the moral life of undergraduates. Admitting that there are evils in the jifraternlty system, and that some of those evils are grave, Mrs. Halle de- clares in a report of her survey pub- lished in Good Housekeeping that she [has "failed to find any evidence that there is any real difference between iifraternlty and nonfraternity moral standards except as such differences are found everywhere between the g...

SECOND: This is not a sale of hold-over or out-of-date merchandise, but Everything offered is this season's goods bought and placed in our stock within the last few months.
