Storm Sufferers in Desperate Plight

“The storm that struck Quitman County last week destroyed sixteen houses just west of Darling on the Harper, Townsend, Butler, and Whitehead plantations.  The tenants living in these houses lost everything they possessed, and many of the people were injured.  They are in need of assistance; the Red Cross chapter and local Kings Daughters are soliciting help.  Up to this date, there has been contributed through the Red Cross chapter a little more than $100; some clothing has been sent in to the Kings Daughters to be distributed.”
