—Though the departure of Rev.
B. E, Whittington from Perry
was without ceremony, his family
being on a visit to relatives at
Cordele, the good will of our peo
ple is none the less with him and
his wife and children. During
the year he was the faithful and
One of our Specialties
earnest pastor of Perry and Prov
idence Methodist churches, and
he earned by his devotion to dutyj
and genial companionship the
highest esteem of all the people
with whom he came in contact.
Our best wishes will be with, him
at his new home at Byron.
