ABNER 83 YEARS OLD SPENT FOUR YEARS IN THE WAR OF 60’s. Mr. J. W. Abner, who lives in Winder and who has always been a citizen of Jackson, Gwinnett, and Barrow counties, is now 83 ; years old and still quite active. Four years of his life were spent in the service of the South as a brave Confederate soldier, and 12 months of this time he was a pri soner of war at Fort Deleware, where he endured with thousands of other Confederate soldiers, the hardships imposed on them at this prison. They suffered much from the severe cold weather and for the lack of something nourishing to eat. Had it not been, he says, for making rings and other trinkets from bones that they sold to the federal soldiers, in exchange for things to eat, they would have had hardly enough to prevent starv ing. Mr. Abner was in Capt. Tim Thompson’s company, which went from Jefferson, and very few of those who enlisted with him are now living. The roll call of these old vet erans finds fewer of them every year, and we who have come on since that period, too often for get their sacrifices and their suf ferings and pass them almost un noticed.

One of the most impressive serv ices ever held at the Christian Church of Winder was that of last Sunday morning, when Rev. R. E. Moss, the minister of the church, ordained the recently elected of ficers in the presence of a large audience. After reading and briefly explaining the third chap ter of Paul’s first epistle to Timo thy as to the scriptural qualifica tions and duties of elders and deacons, the minister called to the pulpit Messrs. J. M. Jackson, S. P. Smith, L. M. Mayne and Claud Mayne, the elders of the church, to assist him. He then directed Messrs. A. G. Lamar and J. A. DeLay to stand side by side just in front of the pulpit, while Messrs. A. A. Thomas, W. L. Mayne, 11. E. Ilaynie and I. E. Jackson were in like manner di rected; thus in a sacred circle surrounding the edge of the pul pit the first two were ordained as elders and the last four as dea cons. The ordination ceremony was simple but solemn and im pressive, as the minister, with J. M. Jackson assisting, placed his hands upon the heads of Messrs. Lamar and DeLay and pronounc ed the words setting them apart as elders of the church. Then having the four elders upon the pulpit to place their hands upon the four deacons-eleet, the minis ter ordained them likewise. The entire congregation stood during the ceremony which concluded by all solemnly repeating in unison the “good confession,” that “Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God,” the creed of the church . During the invitation song, just before the benediction, young J. A. Ilaynie, the son of H. E. Ilaynie, came forward to confess his faith in Christ as his Savior. MADE CASHIER OF ATHENS BANK i Air.
