working by the citizens, he offered

not represented, but those that
were, we are sure, found inspiration
to continue the good work which
they had begun.
This division meeting is a new
idea, but bids fair to be a great aid
in promoting the work.

society is division president, and
has been a very enthusiastic ltade
of these societies.

entering into the heritage of their
forefathers of old Edgefield who
were among the best and saintliest,
associated with the Gwaltney ?nd
Sams families of sainted memory.
The young ladies who took part
in the Y. W. A. exercises spoke so
distinctly that every one could hear
and enjoy the representation of the
various missionaries on the home
and foreign field.
