' Yours for business,
At baptist Church—Members of
Churches Gather to Bid Brother
The Baptist church was crowded
to ovcrllowing Sunday night, when
all denominational lines were put
aside and the good people gathered
to hid farewell to Rev. DeWeese
and his estimable wife, who left
Monday for Louisville, Ky., where
Mr, DeWeese will enter the Theo
logical Seminary. Interesting talks
were made by laymen and pastors
of the city, and Mr. and Mrs. De-
Weese were moved to tears by the
many pretty tributes paid to their
exemplary lives while citizens of
Winder. When Brother DeWeese
got his voice under sufficient con
trol to speak he expressed his deep
appreciation of the great love feast
being held, and said it was much
more than he expected, and hoped
the vast congregation would par
don him if he appeared childish.
The speaker was above creeds,and
denominational lines, and in the
course of Ins remarks expressed the
beautiful thought “l love every one
who loves my Lord.'
It was a beautiful and soul-stir
ing service and one which will re
dound to great good, in W inder.
Let’s have more union meetings,
where the love of < iod and human
ity reigns supreme. At the con
clusion of the services the following
resolutions were adopted by the

Their stay with us for two years
and nine months, has been fraught
with great accomplishments, to say
nothing of the ‘‘Dread cast upon

of the city into a beautiful and
commodious brick edifice, located
in a very select residence section o!
our beautiful city, jtid on the same
lot we have a desirable pastoriuin,
and in addition to this, Brother
and Sister Do Wees have found
time to endear themselves to our
town's people in general, and have
succeeded in organizing a “Ladies'
Aid Society,” “Young People’s
Bildc Training Class," and “Chid

societies have accomplished great
and lasting good. Especially has
Sister DeWeese shown great Chris
