We did not reach the associ-i
ation until Saturday, and was,
sick during the time, but
from what we saw abd from
what was reported to us by
the efficient clerk, the ajssociy
ation was never treated to
better sermons and addre.-sesj
The sermons by Rev. E. P..

appreciated. \\ e wish we birffi*

I Mr..'?. B. Davis, Kl’tor Clipper,
Dear Sir: —Thisls an ideal Aji
gusl morning. has risen in
[all his glory and is low climbing to
ward his zenith, in|tbe meantime he
is sending forth his scorching rays
i upon the earth as he meant to
I swelter us in his Aeat but a gen
i tie, kindly breeze Comes to fan us and
! old Sol’s rays are (tempered. Our
thoughts naturally I turn homeward
and we thought to while away the time
in some pleasant'.-occupation, we
would write a few lines for the Clip
per. For recreating and quietude this
is an ideal place, (here one is not to
be disturbed ' with t/!ie ever busy hum
of the city.
On the contrary one can revel in
the beauties of nature. Beautiful
trees, shady woods, fields of blooming
cotton, and growing corn, fresh, sweet,
pure air to breathe and Lithia water to
to drink! These are the health giving
elements of this pleasant and accessi
ble summer resort. To keep the thing
from being to monotonous one may
run to the door about every half hour
and see the dummy as she goes steam
ing by, '‘niTjing passengers to and
from the spring. It also delights us
to hear the chu-cluh I chu-club I of the
gianp locomotives as they go whirling
o’er the rails, carrying their human
freight and other oom modi ties. We
hail the North bound trains with kt.
est delight because they bring
messages from loved ones at home!
Mrs. Beavers, our hostess, is a most
thorough-going si«d practical house
i keener. .We hawa got in frcm a
stroll through th? ■Jvpwds eud a visit
to a spring of cigar free stone wa
ter. Mrs. Beavers and 1 lingered
awhile to listen to the sweet musical '
sounds of the little babbling brook .
as the water trickled over the sands,
adown the rocks and through the
winding gorges as it wended its way;
on to join some larger stream. After |
stumbling over stones and busiies and j
losing our way, we finally arrived 1
at the house again with our appetite
increased fifty per cent.
We feel much benefitted from the
rest we are having. We hope when I
! we get back home we may look and |
| feel as we did in days of health.
We attended Divine services yester
day, Sunday, at, the Baptist church i
j of which Rev. McGuire is pastor. And
j we especially enjoyed the Sunday
i school. Deacon Lathran is the su
perintendent and is very earnest in
his work to uplift the young peo
ple. Rev. Goss preached a good ser
mon at eleven o’clock and the pastor
preached at night afterwliich the
Lord’s supper was administered.
Miss .1. G. Childs is here for a few
days before returning to her post of
