READY TO BEGIN.
Prelimnary Plans Received for Oak
land Cotton Mill-Expect to Let
The preliminary plans for the Oak
land cotton mill have been received
by the management and the final
touches will be in the hands of the
management by the latter part of next
week or the first of the week follow
ing. The nrchitpts have been ex
ceedingly carc.*al in the drawing of
these plans and have gone over them
so that there can be no misunder
stand on the part of the contractors
and the effort is made to have the Oak
land one of the best and most modern
constructed cotton mills in the coun
try. As soon. as the plans are receiv
ed several contracting firms are ready
to make estimates and it is hoped by
the management to have the contract
let and work commenced within the
next three or four weeks and it is un
derstood that the building can be
completed and ready for the machin
ery within four or five months.
It seems probable, thierefore, that
within the next six months, at least,
the Oakland will be turning out cloth.
It has been decided that the mill will
be equipped to make the finest cloth
that can be produced from the cotton
grown in this section.

Church of the Redeemer.
(Rev. Edw. Fulenwider, Pastor).
Nothing preventing the following
pogram of divine services will be ob
served at the Lutheran Church of the
Redeemer next Sunday:
11 a. m. there will be an "Old Folk's
Service." .The pastor will preach a
special sermon on the subject. "Com
pensations of Old Age." Text, Psalm
71:18, "Now also when I am old and
greyheaded, 0 God, forsake me not;
until I have shewed thy strength into
this generation, and thy power to
every one that is to come." An old
man is like an old tree. He
is the product of the storms and
the zephyrs, the sunlight and the
frost of the years. We should not
forget to respect, comfort, and cheer
those who are growing old. For such
a man wearing his gray hair as a halo
o1 righteousness is a witness of the
innumerable mercies of God. So the
Psalmist prays that he may be spared
to give his testimony to the genera
tions that shall follow him. In this
sermon an attempt will be made to
say something that will encourage,
comfort, and cheer those who have
reached the shady side of life, and
also help those who are rapidly ap
proaching the same period.
8 p. m. there will be the first of a
series of Sunday night evangelical
revival services. The sermons will
be short and practical. The pastor
will remain in the church a while af
ter each service to talk with any who
are interested in the salvation of their
souls. The subject of the first sermon
in the series will be, "The Most Stu
pendous Utterance Ever Recorded in
Human Language." The sole pur
pose of these services will be to help
those who are trying to live Chris
tian lives in this world of sin, and
encourage those who have not done so
to enlist in the army of Jesus and
march forward under His banner to
help save the world. We are in the
day. The opportunities are ours. We
must all realize our individual re
sponsibility. The singing at the night
services led by the young men of the
college and the young people of
the congregation is inspiring.
The public is cordially invited to
all the services.
