OUR BAPTIST CHURCH.
Never in the history of tho exis
tence of tho church was the Baptist
church at Jackson in a more prosper
ous condition than at present.
Indeed, should tho town of Jack
son congratulate nerself in the pos
session of such a man of God ns Ilev.
C. T. Willingham, the present pas
tor of Jackson Baptist Church. No
one, after hearing him preach could
doubt for one moment that he is lin
ed with Christian courage and e soul
burning for the upbuilding of God’s
earthly kingdom, and the salvation
of the people. His aubjoct Sunday
last was “Taking the City for God.
Among other things he said : “ Before
the city can lie taken tho church
must get. right with God.” “Much
purging” said he “is needful before
tho church can be of power for God.
Men in the church” ho proclaimed
'who will not do and live as a pro
fessed follower of Christ should live,
should he turned out of the fold. It
might decrease our numbers, but it
would increase our power for God.’
Ho said, “my brother it might change
your wav of'doing business to get
right with God but your loss iu dol
lars would be guined in making cer
tain your right and title to mansions
in the ky.”
In short ho preached a heart search
ing sermon. H called upon each one

of the hour, ;.! mo with God, nek the

Putts free rural delivery. I have
tried to find out at the Post Office and
among the carriers, and all I have
been able to learn is that he tried
vei'y hard to change route No. 3 so as
to go by the front, of his plantation
instead of some half mile distance
away from it. The inspector refused
to put the additional distance on the

anxious to know it. and will do my
part in giving out the information
to the public, because such informa
tion will be startling in the extrsnae,
aud the public should know it.
The man who deserves real credit,
as I learn on inquiring, for working
up the rural system in Butts is I£.
C. Cawthon. He worked to get the
first, route established, when the peo
ple along the route were advising him
to give up the work and let it go.
Bob Thomas worked up route No, 2
T. O. Woodward worked up No. 3
Belah Wilson and Erastus Gilmore
worked up No. 4, and J. C. Flynt and
Jno Phinizee No. 5. John and Tom
Ball and others secured No. 0. and
7 and 8 were laid out and routed by
one Higbee, a gorernment agent.

Proffossor W. P. Thomas has given
the Board of Trustees notice that he
will not be an applicant for re-elec
tion. What does this mean? It
means that he is to leave Jackson.
The patrons of the school will not
understand this great loss to our
school till it is too late. However we
knew when tho school board was
slated at the last election, it was
studiously selected with a view of
disposing of Mr. Thomas. Everybody
will admit that the school is in a
more prosuerous condition than ever,
even in its entire history. No one
will hesitate, for a moment;, to ac
knowledge that in Mi. Thomas the
the town has a clean, polished and
Christian gentleman. He is absolute
ly minus of a single bad habit.
To be is Methodist, it is, with some
people who live in Alaska, an un
pa dutiable sin. Mr. Thomas is very
active in his church work, and he is
a Methodist, coming from a long an
cestry of Methodist and herein iics
his sin so thinks Tom and Jerry. * * *
Gagged th® Raboit.
A sportsman on the lluntsham es
late, North Devon, hail a rabbit
brought to him by his spaniel, which
had caught it under a hedge. The rab
bit could walk only very feebly,
though all its limbs were found to b>*
sound. In Us mouth, however, was a
thick twig about three inches long,
which had become wedged in behind
the teeth in the rabbit's rush from
sonic threatened danger. The animal
was unable to extract the twig with
its paws and was being gradually
starved to death when it was found by
the dog.—London. Standard.
