who will never die with an enlargement I
of the heart.
The dedicatory services of the Sunday
School room at Grace Church were per
formed on last Sunday. The dedicatory I
services were preceded by several short J
talks, and some splendid music by the
school. The history of the school was
reviewed in a condensed form, showing
tat the school was organized twenty
two years ago, (1865) by Dr. McFall and
his wife, with three scholars, viz: Mamie J
Maffett, Corrie McFali and Billie Birge. B
Mrs. L. B. Maffett was the first teacher B
appointed. The books first used were e

is evident that these deluded negroes Kid

n stationed at Newberry, and it is sysi
isible that a man of our own tribe was epa
ind the scenes. At any rate these ben
