Distinguished Divine and Educator Honors
Laurens, His Native Town, With a
Brief but Pleasant Visit.
Dr. J. C. Kilgo preached at the First
Methodist Church Sunday evening.
His discourse was a masterly effort,

Methodists of North Carolina. As an
evidence of their esteem for him the
board of trustees have recently granted

yet fully determined upon the nature of
this trip, but it will probably be to Eu
rope for the purpose of studying school
systems there. He is now visiting his
old friends in this section.
Dr. Kilgo was all but elected a bishop
by the Methodist General Conference
the past spring, receiving a flattering
vote for the oflice. He was chosen to
