Co-Operative Temperance and
Missionary ' Meeting. "Hen
Peck Club" Met. Greek
Once a year a co-operative meet
ing of the Baptist missionary society
and the W. C. T. IT. is held and to
it all interested are invited. The re
cent meeting was held last Monday
afternoon in the Baptist church and
there were present r?presentatives
from all the missionary societies in
town. Mrs. T. R.Denny as presi
dent of the W. C. T. U., who will
soon go to make her home elsewhere
was asked to conduct the meeting,
and she arranged a most interesting
program. After piano selections by
Miss Antoinette Denny, the script
ure lesson was read, followed by
prayer by Mrs. L. C. Latimer,presi
dent of Baptist missionary society.
Mrs. M. T. Turner who is super
intendent of co-operative work of
W. M. S., and W. C. T. U. gave
some interesting thoughts of good
derived by these meetings. Mrs. E.
O. Eidson of the Methodist church
read a tract, "What co-operative
?work has done." vocal duet, "A
song of victory" Miss Laurie Hoyt,
Master Thomas Hhyt. A recitation
by Miss Mary Reynolds was much
enjoyed. Mrs. E. R. Mobley read a
striking poem, "Did you?" Leaflet,
"Plans for preparedness,"Mrs. W.
J. Hatcher. The constitution for
national prohibition was read and
adopted. A delightful feature was
the music by Mrs. L. A. Cooper
and Miss Margaret Cooper on
piano and violin. Mrs. A. P. Lott
made an effective talk on "The
friend of the poor and needy," and
told many interesting facts that en
listed the sympathy of her hearers,
among which was of the Sunday
school for the colored people which
she organized on their farm. The
meeting closed with a few remarks
>^?rom the president, Mrs. Latimer,
" and was dismissed with a feeling
prayer by Mrs. J. L. Smith of the
Methodist church. These two or
ganizations can so well work hand
in hand ami the meetings are always
good and productive ones.

Oh! what a glorious rain wo had
Sunday afternoon. Two splendid

ginned Saturday afternoon as we
went into town and equally as many
as we came on home. What little
there is will soon be out and in the
factor's/hands, then after the farm
er has sold all he has the price will
shoot up higher than for many
years we suspect. The crop has
been injured very much from this
