A num ber of the county’s best singers came and the songs of our country ! and of Zion were enjoyed by the great congregation. The spread at I noon could not be excelled. Several I of the oldest citizens declared it the ! nicest picnic they ever attended. Hurrah! for the glorious Fourth and the Oxford Camp Ground! Lawrenceburg, Term. Feb. 4, 1922. I My Dear Mrs. Colloway: Today I’m mailing yon check for $12.96 my tithe for first month of 1922. Kindly use an yway you may see fit in helping beautify and improve the dear old Camp Ground. Trusting this year may be the greatest on record, I am, Sincerely yours, MRS. A. J. LUMPKIN. The Camp Ground And The Ap proaching Camp Meeting. Quite a number of the friends and supporters of the Camp Ground 1 met Friday and quite a bit of work !—such as felling and removing from | the grounds some trees that had died during the year, cutting bushes and weeds, mowing off grounds, .burning trash, and putting the roads I adjacent in first class condition. Our building committee looked ! over repairs needed such as seats ,for the tabernacle and ladies pray er meeting pane, anu ouv m I for lumber to supply this need. This work will all be completed ere the I camp meeting which convenes the 1st ; Sunday in August. We are fortunate in having such 'a splendid team of Christian leaders to help this year in tne persons of Rev. W. M. McIntosh and his wife, both of Iuka, who are well known in ! Oxford. The works of these I true soldiers of the cross have been blessed of God in miraculous ways, and have increased in power through the years. Their latest meet ings being their best. Rev. Ed G. Phillips, associate worker with Bro. j McIntosh, w'ho comes to take charge ■ of singing, is also an evangelist of note, a strong preacher of the gospel, as well as a singer of the gospel. He cannot be excelled as a choir or ganizer and leader of song. He trains both young and old. and ev erybody sings where Bro. Phillips directs. Everybody in Oxford and surrounding communities will be eager to take part in this feature of the camp meeting. Now, listen! We have only a few more weeks in which to get ready. So let’s begin nowr to pray and plan and boast and do vour full part to ! make this the best year in the history of this dear old ‘ camping ground. | Don’t let anything of a secular na ture keep you from securing a tent [and taking your family and Iiniag up ,in this battle for more social ar.d rigt I eous living. Let’s honor God by 2-iving Him this ten days, out of the 365 he has blessed us with since fast we met on this sacred spot. W’e owe it to Him to turn aside from the toil's and frets »f life and set our hearts and minds for a season upon holv things that He may refresh our spirits and illuminate our lives and better prepare us for the great work he has for us to do. in. our homes and business and communities. W’e fee! sure that every tent will be filled. Don’t forget to come pre pared to stav 10 days. W’e move in Saturday and move out Monday w-eek. The meeting will cover two Sundays. Please, please you who love chil dren, make it possible for them to attend. It will mean more in their lives than fortunes of gold. . They will be taught to sing and an hour each afternoon will be Drovided un der capable leaders for their benefit an dpleasure. Our good friend Uncle Dick Duncan volunteered a dollar last week to pay for a day’s work and Mrs. Lumpkin one of our good friends who camped with us last year and gave us such substantial help sends a beautiful letter and check. Here’s the letter. I want you to enjoy it with me. So you see God is still encouraging this work—of KutMimv ci nliipp ■for his rhildrftn to n r do him honor. Many of our friends who donated last year to this cause have not been called upon becav/? we have not needed the funds unti!_ now. Our collectors will, however, give you an opportunity to make your promise good and we heartily thank you in advance and trust you’ll ioin us and share the good things in store for all who put themselves under the in fluence of the great Camp Meeting in August.

CAMP FIRE GIRLS ENJOY A WEEKS OUTING ———— On Tuesday the twenty-first a bunch of happy girls, members of the Campfires left for a week of camping on the banks of the beauti jfui Waterford lakes. Mrs. Christian land Miss Nef e DunI p, the able |chaperones, saw that no one was lost in the mob at the station and put all , the girls, chickens, cabbages, ukeleles, etc., on the train. Upon arriving at j YY aterford they were met by Mes | srs. Christian, J. B. Roach and Branham Hume, who had motored through and had begun to get camp in readiness. The mile and a half from town to the luke$ was covered quekly by the eager girls and soon,* in spite oi' the oppressive heat, the campers had ali gone to work mak ing beds, unpacking and ‘ draping" the mosquito bars. The first meal had already been prepared before leaving home, so just before dark huge quantities of sandwiches were consumed. The daily schedule made out for the next six days follows: 6:00—First vising call. 6:00-6:30—Swim. 6:30-7:00—Dressing and Exercise. 7:00—Breakfast. 7:45-8:00—Morning Prayer. 8:00-9:00—Cleaning up camp. 9:00-9:30—Instruction* 9:30-12—Recreation. 12-1—Dinner.' 1- 2—Rest hour.. 2- 4:30—Recreation. 4:30-6—Afternoon swim. 6- 7—Snipper. 7- 9:30—Evening dance or boating. 9:30-9:45—Evening prayers. 9:45-10—Undressing. 10:00—“Lights out.” 10:15—Absolute Quiet. Thursday was visitors’ day, when the presence of eight or ten Oxford friends added greatly to the girls’ enjoyment. Everyone was sorry that Mr. Christian was compelled to be away on that day. The weather was clear and fine during the whole week, with the ex ception of Sunday, when a high wind and a thunderstorm, threw the. camp into chaos. The tent ps were quickly put down, the cots folded and the bedding and clothing were placed out from under the leaks in the tents, so that everything was kept dry. Fortunately there was a shelter over the kitchen and fried chicken and other goodies were forthcoming at dinner time. On Monday it wasn't necessary to take down the tents, for the Scouts were to take possession upon the de parture of the Camp Fire Girls. On Monday at eleven a crew healthier, happier ami "browner t?fan had left town returned. SECRETARY.
