RESOLUTIONS OF S. S. BAPTIST
Whereas the omnipotent in his
divine will has seen fit to remove
from our midst and the many cares of
life. Sister Mary A. Merry.
Therefore, we the members of
Spruce Street Choir herewith express
our profound sorrow, for the loss
our church has sustained by her
She was regarded as one of the
pioneer Baptist women of Tennessee.
It was at her home the first money
was raised to purchas a church
building and from that on she has
ever been ready to lend a hand in
the work for the Master.
She was a faithful, untiring work
er in the vineyard for Christ. It
might well be said, her hope was
built on nothing less than Jesus'
blood and righteousness.
Resolved, that we emulate the
Christian example of our dear, de
parted sister and bow in humble
submission to Him who doeth all
things for the best.
Resolved further that we most sin
cerely condole with the family in
this the sorest of all afflictions and

"WHICH OXE SHALL I MARRY"
"Which One Shall I Marry?" Is a
new Idea in the drama written origin
ally in one act from it, prospered
in the variety houses of this country
and Europe because of its originality.
Its author, Ralph T. Kettering, has
done that which most playwrights
have sought to perform created a new
and original idea. The story ot the
play begins in allegorical form. The
oung girl around whom the story re
volves Is discovered at the crossroads
of life", where the mysterious charac
ter of 'Advice' comes to her to point
to a successful future. She is sought
in marriage by a rich man and a poor
man. The former offers her every
thing that money can buy, while the
other can offer her love only. It is
then that she propounds the question
Which One Shall I Marry?" The
scene then changes to the back yard
of her home, where the story begins.
At the end of this scene she prays
upon bended knees that she may be
hown her future life with both men,
No sooner said than she is transport
ed to the 'gray forest of doubt' and
there she is lost. It is the rich man
who meets her and take her to his
home. As the wife of the rich man she
is discontented and commits suicide
