February 22, 1907

  • Rev. S. Thompson, B. Th., is occasionally in the city.  Hardly a week passes but that he is in Nashville on various official duties.  He is a minister of good reputation and is always ready to assist in some good work for our people.
  • Mr. Wm. A. Ewing, who is at present residing in Muncie, Ind., is in Nashville on a visit to his brother,  Mr. Paul Ewing, of Stevens street.  His many friends will possibly be glad to know that he is in town, as he lived in Nashville some years ago.
  • Mrs. Fannie M. Lauler, of Martin, Tenn., continues to write encouragingly of the standard maintained by the Globe as a newsy journal.
  •  Some very excellent photographs of Miss Aurelia Mildred Ford have been received in Nashville.  Miss Ford is from Little Rock, Ark., and it will be remembered spent an excellent summer in Nashville last year.  She was indeed the recipient of much social attention.
  • Mr. John Moore, of 1213 Thirteenth avenue, South, contemplates making an extended trip during the summer months.  Just what points will be visited is not yet known, but it will appear in the columns of the Globe later.

  • Little Willie Brooks, son of Mr. and Mrs. Brooks, of 504 Fourteenth avenue North, who has been ill for the past three or four weeks is slowly improving.
