Pleasant Hour at Colliers.
The editor of The Advertiser
spent an exceedingly pleasant hour
Sunday afternoon with the good
people of Colliers, having accepted
an invitation to address the Peace
Haven Sunday school. In spile of
the chilly afternoon, there was a
representative attendance, each class
being taught by a capable teacher.
Mr. T. M. Adams is the popular
and very worthy superintendent.
The men's class is taught by Mr.
Murphy Miller and the women's
class by Dr J. N. Crafton. All of
the other classes have faithful teach
The singing of the Peace Haven
Sunday school is fine. Miss Ellie
Mathis presides at the organ and
Mr. Tom Adams, with his strong
voice, makes a good leader. There
is no choir set apart for the singing,
the entire school constituting the
choir, which is the ideal way.
The Peace Haven Sunday school
is wielding a very helpful influence
in Colliers, and long may it live,
perpetuating the memory of the la
mented Dr. McKie who founded it.
Grateful For General Response.
As county chairman of the war
fund to be raised for the welfare of
our boys in the training camps, the
editor of The Advertiser wrote more
th3n 50 letters to citizens in different
parts of the county, inviting and
urging them to attend the meeting
which was held in the court house
Monday. With but few exceptions,
all of these men-true, patriotic
men that they are-either attended or
wrote us personal letters giving the
reason for their absence and express
ing interest in the very worthy
cause. For this very general re
sponse to our appeal we are pro
foundly grateful. . The following
letter from a good citizen of the
west side shows the fine spirit mani
