Almyra Gleanings – 30 Sep 1920: The many friends of Miss Maggie Gladney, who is teaching in Madison county, are glad to welcome her home for a three-week’s vacation.
We are glad to note that Mrs. J. L. Taylor, of Dunlap Orphanage, who has been on the sick list for several weeks, seems to be steadily improving. Mrs. Taylor’s sister, Mrs. Copeland, of Lebanon, Tenn., has been with her during her illness and has been a valuable helper at the Orphanage while here. She is accompanied by her little son. Talmage,. Mrs. Copeland was also here for a few days.
Miss Alice Beach, one of the efficient assistants at the Orphanage, who is in the Lucy Brinkley Hospital, in Memphis, was getting along nicely at the last account, after an operation for appendicitis.
The Almyra school closed last Friday for a six-week’s vacation in order that the children might assist in gathering the cotton crop.
The interior of the boys department at the Dunlap Orphanage has been much improved lately. The wood work is all newly painted. The lower part of the walls is a beautiful dark green and the upper part is a light shade of the same color, giving the room a very restful appearance. The pretty new bedsteads are all alike and look so much better than the old ones of several different designs. There is also a neat library table and a lovely dresser. This makes the boys’ surroundings very attractive now.
