Pirkle, Sunshine In The Home, Power In The Life. , The Singing at New Harmony. The class was called to order ! by Bro. Alfred Roper after our Sunday school which was at tended by a very large crowd and it seemed to arouse and stimulate the people for the singing which was to follow. After a short recess the sing ing class was called to order by Bro. Roper who led a few pieces and was followed by J. D. Ledbetter, S. C. Smallwood, Arthur Fowler, and other good singers. The singing in the morning was in the new books and was pronounced by many especially some of the visitors to be about the best they had heard in quite a while. After an intermission of one and one half hour given for dinner, which there was plenty of it spread around and was enjoyed by all. The class was again call ed to order by Bro. Roper who led a few pieces folowed by sev eral other good leaders, some of whom were Messrs Julius Hen drix, James Smithwick, John Drummond, W. V. Smallwood, John Tillison, Fred Aarons, Tommy Green, Davis Lafayette Nix, Roscoe Lathem and prob- ably a few othrs whose names we did not get. The afternoon singing was mostly in the Old Christian Harmony and was greatly enjoyed by all. The old er people staid it carried them back to their childhood days and made them feel young a gain, and the younger ones to ger a glimps of the wood Md times as'e past and 'Wne.'

You are worse than a slack er if you are trying to influence people against our government. “The wages of sin is death.” What will your wages be when God calls you to account for your deeds done in this world? Rev. James H. Couch filled his regular appointment at Mid way last Sunday. Mrs. S. L. Bales is visiting in Atlanta for several days. Mr. Odous Hammond has purchased a Ford. Miss Ira James of Marietta is on an extended visit with friends and relatives here. Do you really believe that the United States is not a Chris tian nation? If I believed that it was not then I would say that there is not a Christian nation in the world. Do you believe that Jesus a rose from the dead? If you do not then you are of all men most miserable. Mrs. Etta Hardin has been quite sick for the past week but we are glad to say that she is better. Rev. L. IT. Burgess has been 7>n the sick list for several days but is some beter. I am in favor of anew law that will give the jury the right to name the sentence on a crim inal. I believe that the jury would come nearer dealing out justice than a judge. When we began to criticise our rulers before our chilib-un we are sowing the seed of an archy and no one can tell how far the harvest will extend in to the future. We should try to teach our loved ones a great re spect for authority for if we do not respect authority then our government will fail. Are you a Wilson kicker? If you are you should get off by your self for a few days and re view the great things that have come up before him to decide. Go over them carefully and then after you have done that if you think he should be crit icised get out your pen and pa per and pen and write to him, and tell him wherein he has er red and I am sure that he will thank you for your interest in our government and your effort to correct him. If it was not for the fact that I am a great coward and have a wife and baby I would like to be in France with Gen. Per shing to help pay France for the help she gave us. Of course Mr. H. L. Wills is happy and is smiling a great broad smile for he has anew daughter born about two weeks ago, mother and child are dong well. Mr. F. C. Baker and family spent the second Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Stone Paw. ’ All Day Singing. There will be an all-day sing ing at Haw Creek the first Sun day in July.

Dorsey Nal ley is expected to be with him. Let everybody come and hear the young preacher. Well, we don’t know who will have to go to the war, but some body will have to go. The writer heard Rev. i aulk ner preach at Chamblee last Sunday, lie is a fine preacher and he told the fathers and mo thers, also the entire church, not to let any of the young men leave without doing their best to get them to thinking about their souls. He told the young ! men the main Ihijrtg was for them to prepare to meet their God in peace. Hill Billy. HOPEWELL. This is very cool weather for 1 the month of June.
