Services at Baptist Church. The Easter services at the Baptist Church, Sunday, was a .most interesting occasion. Rev. W. A. Jordan conducted the ex ercises and every one who was fortunate to hear him was high ly pleased and entertained. On this occasion the Oktibbeha Camp, U. C. V.. assembled and previous to marching into the church edifice, as prearranged, formed a group in front of the edifice and were photographed by Mr. C. F. Montgomery, pho tographer. By a custom for the past few years, this camp assem bles at one of the churches and hears a sermon specially pre pared for them. This idea was evolved by Comrade T. N. Shear er, now of Atlanta, Ga., which was eagerly acquiesced in and has by custom become a law and will be perpetuated and a beauti ful custom or law it is. Mr. Jordan touched upon the matter of the Confederate Monu ment that will be erected by the United Daughters of the Confed eracy, and the sight as we un derstood will be most eligible and pleasing to every one, that of the intersection of Washing ton and Main Streets. This is not exactly where some indicat ed it should be placed last year, but the Daughters have harmon ized the matter and we are of the opinion that their choice is the best and about the only desira ble location. We are not alone in our opinion and we glad it is unanimous. Let’s give all encouragement to the Daughters possible, they will appreciate it. On conclusion, Capt. L. D. Mc- Dowell moved that the poem composed by Mr. Joidan and dedicated to members of the Camp that the speaker be re quested to furnish a copy to be spread upon the minutes of the Camp in perpetuation for fu geuerations; and also a copy of his sermon. Elsewhere in this issue will be lound a copy of the poem which will be read with real interest; worthy of the head and heart of the auther and the occasion. -Longview Locals (By Blue Eyes) Mr. Jewitt Pugh was in town Monday.

Whose ranks are thinning fast; Your forms so dear to us this day Will soon be shadows past. Many hopes fell at the front, All those long years ago; And you their comrades are but wont So say I “soon shall go,” The honor’s ours to have you here, And worship God our King; And may no sadness cause a tear, But all in gladness sing. We know you fought for what was right, In that most cruel war; You walked by faith and not by sight— You scarcely show a scar. Lot us lift our hearts in praise And gratitude to God, That He has guarded all your ways In every path you trod. You lived thru all that civil strife, When brother fought ’gainst brother; But God has spared you a long life— And may you have another. You’ve lived to see your country’s glory, And every wrong made right; You’ve read it—’tis a charming story. In which we all delight. In war and peace y#u’ve done your part, In both you’ve honor won; And now with pride and swelling heart We view the race you’ve run, May wo the worthy children be Of true and noble sires; And may we cherish our liberty On all our alter fires. Now ’till we meet again farewell, — Should any be called away, May they answer “all is well.” As that sad word they say. In that fair land across the bar, To which our feet are trending, There’ll be no death, nor hate, nor war, But love and life unending! —W. A. JORDAN. Public Speaking. Hon. H H.

Convicts on Texas Roads. “Austin Texas, April 10.—Fol lowing the lead ot Colorado, Illi nois and other states, Texas will soon make a test of the use of convict labor on the public high ways without guards or shackles. If the experiment proves suc cessful it will mean the construc tion of hundreds of miles of good roads in the state at a minimum cost.” The News has been favoring the above plan or something sim ilar for our state convicts and to accomplish same sell the state convict farms, Parchman and Belmont. They are sources of strife and embezzlement and thefts. It will be done some day when we get more able rep resentatives in future legisla lures. We neea men in the legislature and not a lot of men seeking other positions. Mrs. J. B. Kennard who has been quite seriously indisposed for some time, we are glad to re port that it is believed by friends to be much improved and friends wish for her a speedy ' restora tion to good health.
