Easter Services at Methodist Church.
Regular or special services were held in
all the churches in town last Sunday. The
special services at the Methodist Church
were enjoyed by a large congregation
The altar was decorated with beautiful
flowers, one plant, a Chinese azalia, being
wonderfully beautiful. It was placed there
by Miss Sue Steele, who owns the
plant, and, though a small one, it had 25
lovely pink blossoms on it.
The music for the occasion was hastily
gotten up, but was of such a character as
to win the approval of members and visitor
to the church. An anthem, "The Lord is
Risen Indeed" was rendered by a quartette
accompanied by the organ and violin.
Mi\ W. O. Whitman played the violin in
his excellent style. An appropriate opening
hymn was sung; and after prayer and
reading of scriptures Miss Edith Whitman
sang tin offertory. "Ye Bells of Faster
Day," with violin obligato. Miss Edith
has an excellent high soprana voice and
rendered her song nicely.
Rev. I. P. Martin, the pastor, preached
a splendid sermon from 2nd Timothy 1.10:
"Who hath abolished death and brought
life and immortality to light through the
gospel." The subject was treated in a
new way to us, and the preacher drew a.
marked distinction between mere existence
and life. At the conclusion of the sermon
the choir sang another anthem "Up From
the Giave lie Arose,"with great spirit and
smoothness. The eervices were of a de?
lightful character and were heartily en?
joyed by the large congregation in atten
Easter At The Episcopal Chnrch.

mon at 11 a. m., childrens service with
holy baptism at 3. 30 p. m., at which ser?
vice 8 children and 2 adults were baptised
and evensong with sermon at 7.30 p.m.
All these services were well attended by
large congregations. The chancel of the
church had been tastefully decorated with
evergreens, flowers and handsome potted
plants, giving the building a very preTty
and festive appearance. The choir was
reinforced with the kind assistance of
j members of other churches, with the result
that the music was a great success through?
out and very much enjoyed by all present.
The choir was composed of Miss Sallie
Surface, Mrs. A. F. Hargrave, Messis A.
D. W. Walton, Shell Surface, E. L.
Greever and M. J. Hankins. Mrs Walton
presided at the organ, Mr. Will Henry

Enjoyable features. The rector, the Rev.
W. 1). Ruckner,preached two eloquent and
suitable sermons on the subject of the
resurrection, which were listened to with
wrapt attention. Altogether, we con
gratuHte the membera of this church on
the successful manner in which they cele?
brated this festival.

An Evening With Longfellow.

the life and poems of the American poet
and singing from his poems.
Such meetings are very instructive and
pleasant to the young people who engage
At the conclusion of the literary exercises
elegant refreshments were served by Miss
Nellie Hufford, the hostess.
A Complete Mill.
A few days ago the writer was at Cedar
Bluff, and was shown through the Clinch
Valley Roller Mills by Mr. W. J. Higgin?
botham, one of the proprietors. We had
been told the mills were good but had no
idea they were so excellent. Every new
piece of machinery or appliance that is
now found in modern, complete milling
establishments can be seen in the mills at
Cedar Blu?'. As to the power. It is run
by water, which turns a fifty horse-power
turbine wheel, and additional power can
be added if necessary.
The machinery consists of a Monitor
I Separator, manufactured by the Henley
I Manufacturing Co., of Selver Creek, N.
I Y., three Gorton Purifying Flour Dress
! ers, a Prince Dust Collector, three stands
of Norish Rolls, three Gorton Dusters, one
Whitmore Purifier, one flour packer, 15
elevators for carrying stock to any part
of the mill, and innumerable smaller
machines and appliances. All of the
machinery is of the highest quality, and
the result is the manufacture of live grades
of Hour by the linn that stand almost unri?
valed in the markets. We mentioned the
"Invincible'' a fancy patent brand and
the "Free Silver", "Pride of the Valley''
and" Rising Sun." All of these brands
are highly praised by those who have used
them. The mills are also thoroughly
equipped with burrs for grinding meal and
chop. The capacity of the establishment
is 50 barrels of flour and 200 bushels of
corn a day. Mr. J. H. Kirby, a member
of the firm, is in charge of the mechanical
part of the mills and knows all about it, as
he put in the machinery. He evidently,
understands bis buisness. The output of
the mills is readily sold, and the only
serious trouble the proprietors have
is securing grain. They have to send to
other counties and states for the most they
they use. Our farmers are making a seri?
ous mistake in not raising more wheat and
corn. Too much money is sent out of the
county for grain

Unfortunate Fatal Accident,
On the 12th inst. Mr. Ceorge Blanken

IDAY, APRIL 22, I
MINISTER HARRY SMYTHE RESIGNS,
Resignation Accepted With Promptness
That Astonishes the Gentleman.
Washington, D. C, April 20.?Hon.
Harry M. Smythe, of Virginia, minister
to Uati, and charge d'affaires at San
Domingo, who returned recently on a
sixty-day leave of absence, has resigned;
and though bis leave not half expired, bis
resignation has been accepted by the
Secretary of State. There is something
strange about this proceeding. Nothing
could be learned regarding it at the State
Department, and as Mr. Smythe is still in
the mountains of Not th Carolina, in the
vicinity of Asheville, where be went to re?
cuperate, it may be some time before the
true inwardness of Mr.Smythe's resignation
will become known. There is evidently
some mystery about it, and from the
reticence of the State Department officials
?the absolute refusal to give any reasons
fur Mr. Smylhe's sudden resignation?it is
believed that tin re is some diplomacy of
an important nature involved.
No appointment has yet been made of
a successor to Mr. Smythe,ami itiahardly

WAR HAS ACTUALLY BEGUN
Fighting Behveen Greeks and Turks Cum

After many preliminary conflicts between
irregular Creek bands and Turkish troops,
that had been occuring for several weeks,
on Sunday regular battles were fought at
different places on the border between
Greek ami Turkish territory. There was
fighting ail day at Milouna Pass, and it is
reported that the losses of Greeks and
Turks at that place will amount to twenty
The < "reek fleet bombarded the Turkish
fort Prevessa. Reports are conflicting as
to the results of the battles on land and
sea. Roth the Greeks and Turks are
lighting stubbornly; but with such heavy
odds against them the Greeks cannot
be successful if they are not aided by
some other Christian nation.
A few more days will tell whether the
war will be brief or prolonged.
