With a char acteristic firmness he adhered to bis party when to a republican down here was anything but pleasant and safe, and now that happier times have come no one begrudges him the honors and profit of his fidelity.

One day in the Spring of each year is set apart by ti.e people of Soulc Chapel for the purpose of decorating tbegrave in Senile Chapel Cemetery. Religions services are held, a basket dinner is provided and the day is occasion of a reunion of those who h;,ve relatives and friends buried in this historic sK.t So far as we know the people of that neighborhood are pioneers in this movement, and their example might well be followed in every community where there is a common burying ground The dreariest and saddest spot on earth is a neglect ed grave yard This year the tenth of this month was appointed memorial day, and the writer was present according tj his us ual custom. Religious services were conducted by Rev. Mr, Zwingle, of Rmoksvillc. Mr. Zwingle's sermon was altogether worthy of the day, and I am sure nil who beard it must have been fired with the desire to reach out and strive after the high ideal so force fully held up before them. The committee appointed to attend to the chief business of the day had discharged their duties in a manner which left nothing to be desired. The grounds had been beautifully cleaned, all the shrubbery tastefully trimmed, j and every grave was decorated. It was a goodly sight, and we like to think up on these evidences of loving remem brance of the dead. All of our citi zens should feel grateful to the people of Soule Chapel for their care of this cemetery. All of us mint needs feel an interest in this spot where so many men and women prominent in the his tory of our county have been laid to rest. Any attempt to call names would be invidious, and time and space forbid my offering a complete list. But I must not neglect to mention the dinner. If not the leading feature of the day.it proved quite an important one. The undersigned has been eating dinners at Sonic Chapel for more years than he cares to count, and he has nev er partaken of one which was not of the very best. So when he tells you that both as to quality and quantity this dinner was altogether what one might expect of Soulc Chapel, you will under standlthat he pays a high compliment to the dinner. I believe several such crowds as were present could have been fed, without exhausting the bountiful re past provided by these generous peo ple. A day among such hospitable people is certainly a day to be enjoyed, and I am sure every visitor present will agree with me in saying that this day was one long to be remembered with pleasure, After a short intermission the asso ciation was called together and the committee made its report showing that all expenses had been met and a nice cash balance remained on band. The que'tion of having a well bored has been agitated'and the committee was in structed to look further into the matter, and report upon its feasibility at the next annual meeting. This matter is a very important one, and every one con nected with the association, Should be willing to contribute liberally to it. Manv who have loved ones buried there live at a distance and do not have the trouble connected with repairs, e'eaning up and all the things necessary to keep this place in the manner it is, would doubt'ess be glad of the opportunity of showing to the people of the neighbor hood their appreciation of tbeis work of love, by contributing to this worthy object, if the opportunity were given them. I am loth to quit mvjsubject, as I am always loth to bid adieu to my friends there on these occasions. To me this is a sacred and hallowed spot. Manv of the dearest friends of, my life repose within its silent precincts, and the pco- pie are my people, for among them my life from youth to manhood was spent They have ever honored me above my deserts, and I can only hope that I have to some extent met their expectations From the earliest settlement, of th neighborhood, this church wfls a part of the BrooVcsvillc circuit, but now belongs to the Crawford circuit. This chance was thought 'necessary by the authori ties of the M. P.. Church South, in the readjustment of the churches, so as to elevate Brooksville toa station. Thi writer as well as the people there de plores the severing of ties that reach so far in the past, not because the minis ters sent there are not nmong the very best men in the conference, but be cause of the hallowed ties that bound us together, and 'vie feel that some other arrangement might have been made. This article would be incomplete if I failed to mention the efforts of my long time friend Rev. Mr. Babb, to make every one have a good time. The meet ing again of this man. of God and his good wife was one of the most 'pleasant episodes of the occasion. Such gen erosity and hospitalitycannot be sur passed, and the writer expects as long as he is in the flesh and able to attend. never to miss one of these reunions. Walter Phicb, uu The Fishermen The luck tho of fishermen this week has not been very good. Several par ties have been to the Carpenter Lake. Dr. Maughs Brown and J.
