o’clock. There were twenty-seven of

tendance and to say that they had a
good time does not at all express the
full idea of the pleasures that they en
joyed. Miss Lucille was assisted by
Misses Pauline Topp and Nelle McLean,
who first served delicious pineapple lem
onade and then afterwards in the after
noon pleasure plainly showed that they
had taken lessons and fully understood
their part. Mrs. Francis assisted by
Misses Florence Wylie, Katv and Clara
Topp, had prepared a nice feast of deli
cious ices and cakes. which were served
on tables arranged under the shade of
the trees on the lawn. The chattering
and vivacious little ones paid it tli? com
pliment of eagerly devouring it and
telling Mrs Francis how fine it was and
how pleasant the occasion had lieen.
All in attendance were delighted and
went away with most pleasant impres
sions of tlie occasion.

This distinguished minister of the j
Cumberland Presbyterian church has1
severed his connection with the pastor
ate at Verona and has removed with
his family, of wife and daughter, to
Sheffield, Ala., where he has accepted a
call. His leaving occasions deep re
grets in the hearts of all who Know
him. not only members of his church,
but those of all denominations and all
classes of the community.
Mr. McShan has been an active minis
ter in Lee county for twenty-five years
and has been eminently successful in his
lotty vocation. He has attained a wide
popularity and has gained a splendid
reputation for piety, devotion and zeal
in the good work of his life. He is a
jinn of learning, gifted as a pulpit ora
tor, sympathetic in nature, firm in con
victions, liberal and broad in his views,
kindly in disposition and of magnetic
personality. These qualities combined
have made him a power in his denomi
nation which hits been felt nil over the
state throughout the length and breadth
of which he is Known as one of its lend
ing factors. In his leaving the church
sustains a loss which it cannot easily
replace. The community deplores it be
cause of the loss to the social life which .
it sustains through his own removal as !
well as that of his beloved wife and
talented and popular daughter who go
with him. May their pathway he
strewn with flowers. We heartily com- I
mend them to their new friends and in
voke for them the highest consideration
from all who meet them.
