homo. This address was heartily re
sponded to by Rev. Joseph T. Dondv,
of Delmont, formerly of Richland,
who in most touching and eloquent
terms gave numerous reasons why
tho visitors wore glad to be present.
His omotlonal remarks wore emana
tive of a true Christian heart calling
to remembrance tho many loved ones
who had gone to their reward, and
concluding his response with Ibo
beautiful and touching poem. "Tho
City of the Dead," the words of
which aro so expressive and so im
pressive we quote them in full:
Tho City <>f tho Dead.
There is a beautiful city, laid out ill
walks and squares,
And tho (lowers in rich profusion per

'Tis there tho willow wreath and the
violets lift their hoads.

Capt. S. K. Dendy, ot Walhalh
was next called on for a talk. Hi
remarks wore brief, but reminisces
and interesting. Mr. Dendy gave
descriptive account of how tho fir;
old log church was built-how th
men of the community, his lathe
James H. Dendy, inclusive, cut dow
the forest trees, hewed thom int
logs. Utting them together and thu
building the lirst church at Rici
land. The building was about 60 li
.10 feet, and stood northeast of tl:
present church. The pulpit stood i
tho north end, just beneath a sma
window. Tho window and door shu
lers were batten and hung on woodt
hinges. Capt. Dendy was douhtle
tho only person present who had a
tended the dedication of the first lc
church and also tho dedication of tl
second frame building, which ls t!

church was used, and was baptist
within its walls.
Capt. Dendy's talk was follow
by a short discourse by lames
Armstrong, whose delight on bel"
present on this impressive and hapi
occasion was loo great for expiv
sion. His remarks were aiief. b

of his address through The Courier.1
Mr. Jaynes is an able and eloquent
speaker and was reared within less
than a quarter of a mile from the
Richland church, and we are not
willing lo be deprived the pleasure
which his address would have afford
ed. (A brief resume of this address
will be found elsewhero tn this issue
of The Courier.)
The services of tho day were con
cluded with a sermon at 6 p. m. by
Rev. .los. T. Dendy, and thus ended
a day which goes down Into the an
nals of Richland as a day of dedica- .
lion and blessing-a day of foasling
and rejoicing, and a day of Chris
tian unity and thanksgiving.
Before closing we wish to mention
that from Richland vicinity have gone
out seven candidates for the minis
try, all of whom aro actively engaged
in ministerial work. Their names aro
as follows. Rev. Joseph T. Dendy, j
