MY VISIT TO TIIE 4-H CLUB RALLY
(By M. L. Larkin)
Saturday, April 22nd, was set aside
and observed as 4-H Club Rally Day
throughout Lauderdale County with
the manv many 4-H Clubs that are
supervised by Mrs. C. T. Butler, county
demonstration agent. The meeting was
held at Wechsler High School and
those who availed themselves with the
opportunity of being present were very
well pleased with the wonderful work
that the different clubs are doing
throughout Lauderdale county.
The many articles, such as dresses,
pillow cases, quilts, spreads, table cov
ers, luncheon sets, shirts, parasols, pot
holders, little boys suit; all embrodiered
in beautiful bright colors, and numbers
and numbers of other things that I
hate not named, were on display. It
was quite interesting to learn that all
of these articles were made from sacks
Some of the things on display, such as
shirts, dresses and parasols were dyed
in bright colors and to my mind, it
would have taken a close observer ‘o
tell the different from this material
and the best grade of fast colored linene
This exhibit was one worthwhile.
The different demonstrations given
were very interesting—especially was
the demonstration on table setting in
teresting and helpful. The young lad
ies who gave this demonstraton on table
setting were well up on their job. After
they had finished this demonstration,
the table was very pretty. I do wish
everybody, especially ladies, could
have seen this particular demonstra
tion because of the fact, it is one thing
that is done daily. After all, it isn’t the
food that makes a table pretty, but the
arrangement of the dishes.
Mrs. Butler is doing a worthwhile
work in Lauderdale county and it cer
tainly has made an improvement on a
lot of homes.
The 4-H Clubs as a whole made good
reports, however, there were some
that had been organized longer than
others. The club leaders, presidents
and members are to be commended
highly for the wonderful work they are
doing.
This 4-H Club Rally was one to be
long remembered.
ST. JOHN BAPTIST CHURCH
All services for Sunday April 23rd
were well intended. The Sunday
school was opened at the regular hour
by the Asst. Supt., Bro Luther Nobles,
who expressed himself as being pleased
with his co-workers for being punc
tual. All teachers were present except
one. There were approximately one’
hundred and seventy-five present be
fore adjournment.
The topic was discussed by one of ou?
young brothers, Mr. Charlie Hill which
was really enjoyed. We feel proud to
have our young people come out before
us endeavoring to do work for the Mas
ter.
The 11:00 o’clock sermon was preach
ed by the pastor, Rev. D. Evans. The
sermon delivered by Rev. Evans was
well spoken. I am sure I voice each
ones sentiment when I say “Our Hearts
did burn as he preached the gospel
so forcibly. The choir sang exception-*
ally good for this service.
I feel that they were also inspired
by the sermon, and too, one of our old
choir members, Mr. J. B. Pettus assisted
in singing which added zeal to the choir.
The evening service was conducted
by the pastor and was equally as spiri
tual as that of the morning. The at
tendance was especially good. Each
pew being filled to its capacity. Quite a
number of vistors were present We
hope they will continue to visit our
services.

KEEPING OUR BALANCE
(By Mr. Ranee J. A. Cole)
A young butter maker said to me, I
make butter for my bread and I
study and teach music to keep my soul
I alive.
i I know what he meant. Work is God’s
i intended blessing for us although too
much of it kills our ideal aspiration,
i W’e need something in addition to our
work to assist us in getting our nose
off the grindstone.
After a couple of days I visited one
| of my old chums who was just out of
J school. He was making money, but
had stopped reading, and attending
I church. His motto was, “GET WHAT
YOU CAN, AND CAN WHAT YOU
GET" He was killing his soul by feed
I ing it upon gold.
There is no situation in life so humble
but that it may be attended with
the nobelest thoughts. The sun rises
and sunsets along the rim of a poor
man’s sky is just as gorgeous as those
which thrill the soul of the painters.
Your cottage may be banked in with
strow against the winter cold, but
God can be as real to you as those who
live in mansions.
After all culture is open to every
body, who will fight to keep his soul
alive. A dear woman now long gone,
alter I saw her standing at the West,
window of her kitchen watching the
sun go down, she forced her mind upon
the beauty of it.
Its just here that religion of Christ
is so valuable. If we have in the past'
made religion a thing too far apart from ;
our daily concerns we have lost the I
ricnes oi me compamonsmp ox oou m ,
our rights.
I turn again and again to the words
"Abide in me” and try to fathom the
possibilities of dejighty hope, health
and happiness which I have not yet
reached. It helps to keep my heart a
live.
Human service without monetary j
rewards will help one keep alive the
fires of tideness in his breast. A fi'ee
and sincere attempt to gladden the sad
den people about us will make life and
Christ more real in our daily lives.
NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST CHURCH
NEWS
The 10th Anniversary of the Rev. C.
J. Boykins pastorage at New Prospect
was a perfect success in every way.
The different pastors and their mem
bers helped to make it a success.
The Missionary Society sisters pre
sented him a cake, looked as though
it was a mountain covered with snow.
Oh! well, you may know it was a large
one. The pastor has invited the mem
bership down Thursday to help eat it,
since on that day it will be two week
old.
The Sunday School is on a boom with
rtew scholars every Sunday. Mrs. L. B
Williams decided to surprise the sup
erintendent with a shower. So she had
some one to call him out on April 1st
and she began to work on the shower;
well it was presented by the pastor and
my, there was plenty things to eat and
Handkerchiefs, you should have seen
the smiles and he is smiling yet.
Well, look out for the next big thing
which is the spring revival.

Pilgrim Methodist Episcopal Church,
five miles East of Meridian. The Sun
day School was good. A large number
of members was present. The 11:00 o’- ■
clock services were also irtteresting. |
At 7:30 the pastor, Rev. A. Nelson, ‘
had things his way. He preached a!
soul stirring, sermon. During his dis- I

filled with the Holy Ghost. The sermon
was very very good.
The captains, Messrs Jack Davis and
Willie Davis, came forward and lifted
their offering and when they had fini
shed, a total of fifty-two dollars and
some odd cents was raised. Mr. Jack
Davis happened to have been the win
ner, in that he raised $28.00 and some
cents and Mr. Willie Davis raised $24.00
and some odd cents. Both made very
good reports, when you consider the
existing conditions of the country.
VISTORS DAY AT ST. PAUL
The Methodist Brotherhood and other
organizations of the church cordially
invite their friends to spend the 5th

A special message will be delivered
