The loot Washing.
The annual meeting of the Primitive
Baptists' was held at tiieir church live
miles west of the city last Sunday, The
day was an ideal one, the roads were
in perfect order aud nearly every body
within a radius of ten miles from the
church was there. The ceremony of foot
washing is one of the rites of thatehurch
and it is observed annually on the first
Sunday in May. It is a very solemn and
interesting ceremony aud its observers
liud authority for it in Holy Writ. This
church has a very simple ritual and its
members are not so demonstrative as
may lie found in other denominations.
But they are very zealous and are as
strong in their faith as any baud of Chris
tians can lie. It is one of two denomina
tions which observes this ceremony. The
Second Adventists, we believe, istheoth
er.
The services last Sunday were contin
ued ah day. The congregation was im
mense. The church building could not
hold them all and many were compelled
to remain outsideseated under the shade
of the trees or in the vehicles, of which
there werea great many- Many of the at
tendants carried their dinner which they
ate fa groups. The services were con
ducted lit Rev. S, F. Cuyce, of Martin,
Tenn., who delivered a plain, practical
sermon. The singing was led by Mr. J.
Ii. Dyer and was joined in by almost the
entire congregation. At 4 o’ clock the
services were concluded and the people
were dismissed. All left with pleasant
impressions of the occasion and the ser
vices in which they had engaged.

this great exposition is us near in a state
of completeness as any of its predeces
sors ever w, re at so early a time in their
progress. Most of the exhibits are in
place and those that are not are being
rapidly installed. A very large crowd
at ended the opening ceremonies, which
were conducted with great eclat. The
