*t cf the Woman's Missionary Union
Auxiliary to the Laurens Baptist asso
eiation held a very pleasant and pro
fliable meeting here at the Baptist
chutreh Sattrday. The attendance was
good, ropresentatives coming from
Mtadden, alt. Pleasant, Clinton, Betha
bara, and other places and the inter
esting program was rendered with
prompt dispatch. We were permitted
to mingle with the delegates only at
the noon hour when they were partak
ing of a dellcious dinner in the warm
sunshine. Among them we found Aunt
Kate, the sparkling writer of the Ad
vertiser, who Is the gentle, affable
president of the in ion. Also, we were
glad to meet M rs. Emma Gaines,
widow of the late Rev. W. A. Gaines,
at one tlimea f tencher and pastor in
this county. Mrs. (ines makes her
home at Memphis now, with her (augh
ter. She is visiting her sister, Mrs. 11.
W. Brown and was a visitor at, this
meeting. A number of others we were
glad to see whose names might be
mentioned if time would permit and
who are active in the great mission
ary cause, and aided much the interest
and profit of this meeting.
A few days ago Mrs. W. B. Fuller
had at her dinner table four genera
tions of her family, herself, a daugh
ier, a granddaughter, and two great
grandchildren. Only a few persons
can enjdy such privileges.
The commit tees appoi nted for the
inrpose continued the Y. M. C. A.
work during the week and we are able
to report $521 raised here for that
fund ip to this time.
All of our sick are improving now
except .\r. 13. A. W\harltn, whose con
