Kabletoicn Sunday School Picnic. Dear Free Press: For some years past the Kabletown Sunday School picnics have been the occasion of friendly re-unions, and Saturday, the 11th of September was no exception to the rule. The day being au spicious there was a large turnout—proba bly three hundred persons. It is a union Sunday School, numbering nearly seventy scholars, with Mr. Samunel Barr, superin tendent and Mr. C. H Kable, assistant. There was vocal music by the school. Revs. l>r. Hopkins and C. N. Campbell delivered eloquent addresses. At noon the ta bles fairly groaned beneath the weight of good things. The supply was equal to the demand. A glance hi the committee who stood in the circle and worked so faithfully and zealously all day was a sufficient guar antee that kindness and hospitality awaited all upon the ground. The writer cannot forego the pleasure of naming them: Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Kable Mr. and Mrs. John .1. Kable, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. McCormick, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Barr, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Weller, Mrs. Frank Yeates, Mrs. Ur. Brown, Mrs. B. Whittington, and Messrs. B. F. Yeates, B. F. Johnson and George Fottlk. At three o’clock a bountiful supply of cake and lemonade was served,and each scholar in addition thereto was given a bag of candies. The Church at this place, which is a free one, open to all denominations, needs re pairing badly and a new roof. The trustees, Messrs. T. F, Woodward, John A. W. Ware and Frank Yeates, held a meetimr last Sat urday in regard to the subject, and on Sun day morning, after preaching by Rev. Mr. Marshall, Mr. Woodward laid the matter before the congregation. In a short time j'd'J of the $100 required to commence the repairs was raised. It is to be hoped that member' of the various denominations whose ministers occupy this church will re spond liberally to the call for contributions. Methodists. Baptists, Presbyterians and E piscopalians— all worship there. Let all unite to put it in good and comfo/tabIe con dition at once. Kabletown. CHURCH XOTES. Rev. Ur. A. J. Huntington of Columbian University preached in the Presbyterian __c..u.t Rev. Win. Lee, of Virginia, preached in Zi«n Episcopal) Church on Sunday morn ing, and officiated in the evening services. Rev. J. H. Moore will preach in the P E. Church at Summit Point on Sunday. Sept. 26th, at 3:30, p. m. Mr. Jeff It. Taylor has been appointed lay reader for the Episcopal Church at Harper’s l'erry. It just looked as if the managers of the Morgan’s Grove Exhibition put badges on all the active men of the neighborhood to designate them as committeemen to extend a generous hospitality to visitors. Many of them had tents erected and the ladies of their households were present to serve ta bles. Col. Schley, Col. Ben. Harrison and Mr. Towner Schley met the needs of the writer; and to Mr. Licklider and son and daughters we are also under obligations for courtesies. The Spirit says: Miss Sallie Jones, a young daughter of Mr. Frauk Jones of this county, we understand, fainted from fright occasioned by a disturbance between some young men at Morgan’s Grove, last Friday afternoon, and lias since been lying at Col. Morgan’s residence in a critical condition, having but recently recovered from a seri ous illness. To the Public.
