The News to route 1 was tor peuoed week before last. This is four times our route has fail ed to get its papers this year. I would have been glad to be at the meeting but circum stances forbade my going but I hope to be there next time. Mrs. Bessie Martin is quite sick at this writing. We hope she will soon be well again. Mr. and Mrs. Mila Singleton of Gainesville were guests of the latters brother, Mr. L. M James, the second Sunday in this month. Do you fall out with your neighbor or preacher because he favors the prosecution of the war? You would think it mean of them iftliey were to get of fended at you for thinking it all wrong. About two per cent of the people go to all day singings fo rthe purpose of singing and about five per cent go for the purpose of hearing, and the oth er 93 per cent go for various reasons. Rev. E. M. Stanton, who was on the Alpharetta work nine years ago, will conduct a tent meeting at Midway beginning the stl< Sunday in July and con tinuing perhaps ten days or two weeks. I’d like to know what the ed itor of the Constitution would kick if Hoke Smih and Tom Hardwick were dead. He ap pears to like Hardwick because he did, and Smith because he didn’t.. The gentlemen who run the soft drink stands at Cumming deserve the thanks of all good citizens for keeping their doors closed at the singing. That old idea that it is an ac commodation to the people to have a chance o buy something to quench their thirst is simply a snare of the devil to lead us into temptation. Mr. Geo. W. Ezzard went to Rome last week with his neph ew, John Louis Brannon who was here on a visit. He will go from there to Dalton for a vis it with his son, Prof. Henry Ez zard. -Card of Thanks.
