4 CROSS MILL NEWS ?

Cross Hill, Nov. 24. The saddest
news we have received for some time
was that Of the deatli of Mrs. Lou
Helle llendrlcks near Mt. Pleasant
last week. The husband and parents
have our deepest sympathy in their
sore bereavement. The funeral rites,
which were most pathetic, were con
ducted by Rev. J. A. Martin of this
place in the presence of a very large
concourse of relatives and friends.
The Union meeting of this Ith divi
sion of Laurons association will con
vene bore at the Baptist church next
Saturday and Sunday. The people of
Cross Hill hope for a full delegation
and good meeting.
Itov. Rills A. Fuller, a young Bap
tist minister of Mountville, filled the
appointment of Rev. J. T. Miller at
the Methodist church Sunday morn
ing. His text was "H the Son there
fore shall make you free, ye shall be
free Indeed." .lohn 8:36. From this
text the speaker deduced the theme,
"False liberty through man's efforts,"
Which subject he handled with force
and effect. Most of the -activities of
life, said 'he preacher, are efforts of
men to obtain freedom of soaie kind,
political, business, social, etc., but
true freedom comes only from Christ,

clearness as one unmistakable source
of spiritual bondage and consequently
