gold watch given by the board ol
stewards of churches. Rev. S. H.
Zimmerman presented the watch, in
a very touching way. Rev. Mr.

to be forgotten, but being to full of
feeling to give expession of his ap

respond in a few words.
On Sunday night the Rally day
services were held at Mollohon. This
service was one of the best we have
ever had the pleasure of witnessing.
The children recited their pieces nice
ly and deserve credit. The service
was conducted by one of the school
Master Ernest Merchant. The sing
ing was excellent; we do not boast,
but Mollohon has the best singing of
any church under its circumstances.
There were given mite boxes to raise
a collection and prizes offered for the
two best collections received. Miss
Sudie Bouknight and Miss Corie
Walker were awarded these prizes.
Rev. Graves presented them in a very
impressive talk. Miss Sudie receiving
the best and Miss Corrie the second.
The total collection secured was
$28.11. which is to be divided between
the east side and Baptist Sunday
School and Mollohon Methodist Sun
