At Episcopal Church.
Bishop C. K. Nelson has made
arrangements to supply a minister
for the Episcopal church in this
city on the 2nd ami 4th Sundays
in each month ami on each 5th
Sunday. Services this month will
lie conducted by Rev. Mr. Perry
of the Church of Incarnation in
Atlanta, and the first service will
occur next Sunday.
The future of the Episcopal
church here appears to I*e promis
ing. Much interest has been
aroused among the members and
others persons, chiefly through the
efforts of Mrs. C. R. Heidenberg
and other ladies of the church. It
seems probable that the work will
lie so much enlarged at an early
date as to justify the employment
of the services of a regular pastor
for each Sunday in every month.
