NrtWNAN, FRIDAY, OCT. 1.
Locals Brought Forward.
Rev. C. O’N. Martindale, a prom
inent Presbyterian preacher of Biovvns-
vilie, has been called to till the pulpit
of the West Nashville Presbyterian
church. Mr. Martindale has been the
pastor of the Brownsville church for
the past two years, and formerly had
charges in Courtland, Ala., Tuskegee,
Ala., and Newnan, Ga., all of which
were crowned with success. Not only
has Mr. Martindale accepted the call
of the church, but during his stay here
will occupy the chair of religious peda
gogy', sociology and missions in the
Presbyterian Training School. He also
holds the position of superintendent
of the Teachers’ Training State Sun
day-School Association. He is a grad
uate of the University of South Caro
lina, Princeton Seminary, and Moody’s
Bible Institute in Chicago. The new
pastor was accompanied by his wife and
only son, Girardeau. They are with
Mr. and Mrs. Claude Bills, of Alabama
avenue, for the present. Mr. Martin
dale will begin his pastoral work at
once, and it is hoped that great good
may result.—Nashville (Tenn.) Ban
The opening’ of the Woman’s Ex
change was a decided success. It was
held on last Friday afternoon from 3
to 5, at the home of Mrs. Roy Merrell,
on West Washington street, and was
attended by quite a number of ladies.
Miss Bennetta Orr received the guests,
and Misses Nina Askew and Erma
Treadaway served punch throughout
the afternoon. The house was beauti
fully decorated with potted plants and
cut flowers, and the embroideries and
fancy articles were artistically ar
ranged for display. The Woman’s Ex
change fills a long-felt need in Newnan
—that of putting before the public the
work of the women. It gives an oppor
tunity to those who do fancy work and
fancy cooking tor dipsosing of their
wares, and gives those who cannot do
such, an opportunity of obtaining
them. To be found on the counters of
the Woman’s Exchange are hand-em
broidered articles of all kinds, hand
made garments and drawn-work.
Cakes, fancy candies, Irish potato
chips, beaten biscuits and rosettes fur
nished on short notice. Dressing dolls,
making baby clothes, hemstitching and
feather-stitching, are given special at
tention. For further information call

the most modern and neatest store-house
in the city. He expects to have it
ready for occupancy by Dec. 1.
An Enjoyable Occasion.
On Sturday last Mr. Cliff Beavers
and wife entertained the families of
Messrs. Bert Grimes, Charlie Worth
am, Claude Beavers. Bird Beavers, Joe
Beavers, Ofha Beavers and John Hais-
ten, at a fish-fry. The morning was
spent in talking of the happy days of
childhood, and recalling memories of
the father and mother who reared their
children and passed away at that place.
At the noon hour dinner was spread in
the beautiful grove, the table being
laden with everything that the appe
tite could desire. After all had eaten,
and could eat no more, the grove rang
with shouts, " Give us another fish-
fry. ’ ’
We were well entertained in the af
ternoon with music and social chat;
but. alas! the time to part came on
apace, and we reluctantly sought our
several homes. May we live to meet
often at these family reunions, and
then gather at the last great reunion
where parting is no more. A Guest.
Card of Thanks.
As it is impossible for us to express
personally our thanks to the friends
who ministered so willingly and kindly
to us during the illness and upon the
death of our dear little girl, we take
this method of doing so. We thank you
most sincerely. Never was more kind
ness and thoughtfulness shown anyone
than has been shown us by both friends
and relatives. May God bless and
crown your every effort. Sincerely,
Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Smith.
