Interesting Facts Gathered During the Week by Our
Rev. H. S. Rees preached for the
people at Rock Spring church on Sat
urday and Sunday last, the church lit
mg now without a pastor He was ex
tended a unanimous call to serve the
church during I he remainder of the
year, which he accepted. 1 he meeting
days are the first Sunday and Saturday
before in each month. The next ap
pointment will lie the annual meeting
of the church, which will lie protracted
aevend days. Rock Springs was a place
of considerable note in the early days.
A boarding-school flourished here, and
it was here that the late M. I’. Kellogg
taught his first school in Coweta coun
ty. Here also Hon. Alexander H.
Stephens delivered a commencement
address more than fifty years ago, the
Great Commoner being then a member
of Congress. Some of the pillars of the
old academy building are yet. standing.
At that period Rock Springs was one
ot the wealthiest communities in this
section ; but times have changed, and
the once large plantations have been
cut up into small farms and are now
occupied by renters. It was at Rock
Springs that Dr. .1. H. Hall, of pre
cious memory, preached his last ser
mon, the occasion being the dedication
of the present Baptist house of wor
ship. The main supporters of this
church are M. D. Thurmond, B. A. J.
Smith, Paul Smith, and others whose
names are not, now recalled.
On our trip to Rock Springs we noted
that not more than one acre in twenty
was planted in corn, and much of the
cotton was overrun with grass. We
should not wonder at the high price of
corn and meat when we consider these
conditions. The all-cotton folly seems
to lie a species of madness, and spells
ruin for the Southern farmer.
A pleasant night was spent in the
home of Bro. M. 1). Thurmond, whose
accomplished daughters entertained us
with some delightful music.
As we passed the beautiful home of
the late Capt. J. H. Wynn we recalled
with feelings of mingled pleasure and
sadness the many enjoyable hours spent
under his hospitable roof. Nevermore
shall we hear his cheery greeting, hut
hope some day to join him in that
"house not made with hands,” and
dwell with him there forever.
The fish-hungry are “troubling the
waters” constantly these days, and fish
fries are frequent, both day and night.
