. Owing to the very excellent and
artistic manner in which he has
built the new Lynch store, Mr. W.
S. G. Heath should be permitted to
emblazon his name rather conspic
uously on the front as architect
and builder. This piece of handi
work is certainly a credit to him,
and MT. Lynch is also entitled to
the grateful consideration of the
people for erecting such a modern
and expensive store. He could
have erected an old shack of fifty
years ago in design and construc
tion, but he elected not to do so.

Meeting of Association.
A very successful session of the
Edenfield Baptist Association was
held with the Parksville Baptist
church last Wednesday and Thurs
day. The attendance was good
throughout both days and more in
terest was manifested than usual.
Every church sent its annual letter
and all of the churches, except Har
dy's, were represented by delegates.
The officers elected for the ensu
ing year were Mr. Orlando Shep
pard,moderator; MrJ H Courtney,
clerk, and Col. S. B. Mays, treas
urer. The reports from the churches
reflected improvement and advance
ment along all lines. The subscrip
tions to the 75-Million Campaign
are being regularly met. The re
ports of the standing committees
were up to the average and were
discussed in a helpful manner. The
Parksville people entertained in
good old Edgefield style, throwing
their homes open to delegates and
visitors and serving a bountiful
feast at tho dinner hour at the
church both days. In some respects
the meeting last week was one of
the best yet had. The association
will meet next year with Bold

We desire to express our sincere
appreciation to our friends and
neighbors for their kindness and
sympathy shown us during the ill
ness and death of our dear father,
C. M. Williams.
We thank each of you for your
Camp Branch News.
It seems as though it has been some
length of time since there has been
any news from dear old Camp Branch,
so I will try to write a few lines to
let the people know we are not all
dead yet but almost forgotten.
We have a little cotton the Boll
Weevil has left to open and some have
gathered a small quantity already;
and there has been a great deal of
fodder pulling around here.
The death of Mr. Cris Williams
from Cleora was very sad indeed. It
seems so hard to give him up but we
know he has paid a debt we all owe
and we feel sure he has reached a
better land. He will be greatly missed
by all as he was so well thought of a_
mong his many friends.

than it did last year to gin cotton. The

it was very necessary that we have another
