STUART ROBINSON SCHOOL The Christmas season at Stuart Robinson was a very happy one indeed. Our friends nearby and in distant places remebered us with many acceptable gifts and words of cherry greeting, for all of which we are truly grateful. One of the happiest gatherings of the week took place in the manse at Blackey on Christmas Day when Rev, and Mrs. H. L. Cockerham invited to dine with them those of us who did not go home for the vacation. The gracious hospitality of this home is known far and wide and it was indeed a joy to be there. One of Mrs. Cocker-ham- 's incomparable dinners was served at the noon hour, covers tuing laid for fourteen people. The piece de re sistance, an enormous turkey, was pro vided by Mr. and Mrs. W, D. Lewis and this was supplemented by nume rous other things delightful enough to Editor Mountain Eagle, tempt the appetite of an epicure.
