The Anniversary of the Elliott
Hook and Ladder Company occurring
this year on Sunday was celebrated j
in the Baptist church by an eloquent
sermon from Kev. T. W. Mcllichamp
to a large and appreciative audience.
The services were eminently appro
priate and the discourse was one of |
the best ellbrts hoard on such occa
sions. The only circumstance lo
mar tho enjoyment of the occasion
was the absence, o*n account of the
death of his mother, of Rev. O. A.
Darby, who was appointed to assist
Mr. Mcllichamp in conducting the
exercises. The KHiolls completed the
colcbiation of their Anniversary at
their hall last night by a magnificent
supper and the usual toasts and
speech making. During the enjoy
ment of such hospitality and liberal
cheer, one can but wish that annivov
sartcs last always. Wc hope the Fl- j
liotts and their friends may enjoy
many similar occasions and live to
be a fixed and controlling institution
of our growing town.

last. The circumstances of her death
arc as strange as they arc sad?a lit- j
tic blister on the foot, caused by a

applied, brought on Ihe disease which j
proved so fatal lo life. Mrs. Sum
mers, in many respects was a model
woman, whose prominent traits ol i
character stamped themselves upon
