Sunday. My 14, Vsll was a nicinura ll day at I lie First Baptist Church of Ilickinaii. The xcaHiou was the cele bration of the lifticth u nui versa ry of the ordination of the pastor. Dr. A. S. l'ettie. Half a century of coutinuoiiH devotion to any legitimate busiuexH or lrofcMt.ion Ik -oiiiinciiatle but fiftv years an an active minister of the gOH- Iei ix an attainment seldom reached and Is far greater than a similar period Kpent in macular affairs. Surrounded by many beautiful flow ers. Dr. l'ettie nreacliel at litli tim morning and evening services. His morning KubJiH-t was, "What is Your Life?" and that of the evenintr turvlf Tle Swond Coming of Christ." On both oecasion)) he handled his subject well and showed that although his hair Is silvery white, his brilliant mind and memory are still in their youth. Not withstanding the fact that Dr. Pettie has lK-en au ordained minister for tifty years, lie is yet not as old as some of our ministers for he began at the age of seventeen and was ordained three years later. Several visitors from the Mayfleld church where Dr. l'ettie was pastor for seventeen years, were present and one of them, Mr. J. C. Grant, read a mes cage of c-ongratulation sent by that church. Many other letters from his former pastorates and one from C. M. Thompson, Corresponding Secretary of the Mission Board were also read. The choir and congregation rendered songs sung In the long ago. At the close; of the serinon, the doors opened and two little children, Margaret Jo Mitchell and James Allen Mitchell en tered carrying a basket of flowers which they presented to Dr. Tettie as a token of appreciation from the Ladies Aid SKiety. He was also the recipient of many useful gifts. The church at Hickman thoroughly appreciates Dr. l'ettie and his faithful wife and we feel that they are the right people in the right place. It Is the hope of the membership that when twenty- five years more have passed, it will be their privilege and pleasure to cele- rate the 75th anniversary or. Dr. ret- tie's ordination.
