Resigned After Many Years.
Nearly thirty year ago Rev. Joh:
D. Pitts took charge of the Bftptis
pastorate of the town of Laurent
Last Sunday morning lie resigned hi
charge. Members of the church tel
us that the resignation came as a sui
pr.ise to the congregation. Mr. Pitt
decided on this step after thouglitfi
nd prayerful deliberation. The rei
gnation is to take effect so soon a
rrangements can 'be made for hi
uccessor. As to the future plans c
Ir. Pitss wve are not advised.
Of the members of the congregatio:
.uring the first period of this devoi
ecd pastor's labors in this communit:
nly three survive, namely, Dr. J. A
arksdale and Mrs. Ann Garrett, o

Sabout fifateen or sixteen of th
nty.-three available for services, th
Sbeing scattered. The additions t
e have been nearly six hundred.
e1Tarly thirty years! For over
'rter of a century this faithful ma
Christian, this sympathetic frien
