To say that work Day on July the 1st, was a great success—does not half express it. Seeing only, would be believing in this case. Drive down and look over the grounds, ’twill make your heart swell with pride and admiration to note the wonderful change, and most especially so, could you but know with what beautiful co-operation and with what willing hands and spirits the work was wrought. A half dozen and more communities were represented, of t!V very best our county or any other county affords, Men, Women, %oung neople and Children. Methodists Baptist, Presbyterians, etc. All gath ered for a common interest for a com mon good and the glory of a common Lord and mark you, the reflex in fluence for community spirit and community uplift and happiness that will be bound to result from such wholesome co-operation. Reader if you have not already done so, and want the biggest blessing c.f your lifetime, cast your lot with us by sending in a donation or giving * us a days work or procuring a tent and moving out with your family for the g’eat meeting we are having-'the 2nd Sunday in August, or better still, •io all three of these things and I’ll grant you, vcu will have to ’ gthen the chords, and strengthen tl e takes of your heart or iust be an old fash ioned human being and let your cup run over, because the returns you’ll receive will be so great you cannot retain them. Listen friends! we found it would be very’ necessary to recover the tabernacle, men of good judgement looked it over and concluded it was the only sane and economical thing to do. We had expected to get off with some minor repairs, but instead this work, and at a very conservative figure, will cost us $260.00 more than half of the $500.00 asked for, but it must be done, and the motto of the building committee has been from the outset “Work well done.” Our friends are doing the work just as reasonable as practicaple and with a guarantee behind it. In fact a great deal of the work we expected to let out by con tract has been taken over by the freinds of the Camp Ground and will be done gratis. Just as soon as our former friends have a breathing spell from their crops we are meeting again to repair tents etc. and then for the final touch, when everything will be put in “Com pany dress” for the reception of friends and the grand celebration of the fiftieth Aniversary of this con secrated encampment. You are jn vited. Are you comming? We are pleased to state that our friends here and there, are still roll ing to our repair fund. We have on our books in cash and subscriptions $394.26. You see we lack $105.74 having the five hundred, but we will need more than this friends, so come on with your donations. Lets every body have a part in preparing this spot and leaving it as a memorial to the rising generation of our faith fulness to our Heavenly Father and as a sign that we have conquered thru His blessed son our Savior, and lets convenant together to pray that our efforts in rebuilding this blessed place may be rewarded in the salvat ion and reclamation of many souls who may be drifting upon a sea of worldliness such as is wrecking and Viim/lroHc 3 M 1 dis rupting our communities by the poisonous influence upon society and those who are coming after us.
