This is a Shame !
The Camden Cemetery is need
ing repairs. Stock roam at will
over the grass and beautiful flower
beds, and commit desecration to
the one and destruction to the other.
We deem it unnecessary to urge
early repairs, or a new fence if
needs be, as there is not a family
in or around Camden that docs not
have near relatives or dear friends
buried there. We should remem
ber kindly our departed ones, and
keep their last resting places as
sacred spots, to be made beautiful
as our own dear homes.
Mr. A. C. Mcllae has a balance
on hand that was raised some time
ago, and we solicit the calling of a
public meeting to decide what is
best to be done about putting the
cemetery in good condition, and in
what vay to raise the money, if the
amount now on hand is not suffi

It wits reported to us Wt week
that there was to have been " foot-

last Sunday. Flat Woods is one
of the strongest Methodist congre

Methodists do not observe foot
washing service, instead, last Sun
day was observed by the Flat
Woods congregation as " children's
day." The church was handsomely
decorated, a large crowd in attend
ence, and everything passed off in
an enjoyable way. Dinner was
served on the grounds.
Upon authority of Judg6 Scruggs
and Assessor McAuley, we pub

fact that in the larger counties of
