He was rushed to Central police station, where Drs. H. R. Stanford and D. W. Goldstein, of the hospital staff, administered temporary assis tance and sent him to the City hospital. He was weak from the loss of blood, but not fatally in jured. Renshaw claims that he provoked no assault and at first did not know he was cut, be lieving the negro to have struck him. The above was taken from the Scimitar, June 10th. The young man assaulted was Glenn Renshaw, who residss five miles Southwest of Verona and belongs to one of the best fami lies in the county. He is a quiet, orderly/ young man and his friends greatly deplore the fact that he was assaulted and that the negro will no doubt go un punished. Young Renshaw passed through Tupelo yesterday afternoon en route home. It is believed that he will not experience serious trouble, although Sadly wounded. Meeting At Baptist Church ihe meeting conducted tne past two weeks by Rev. Hunt of St. Louis, at the Baptist Church was duly appreciated by all Chris tian people and the attendance was large, although at times, the weather was very unfavorable. Mr. Hunt is a man of deep learning and is gifted in tte fac ulty of presenting facts in a di rect and logical way. His ser mons were full of divine teach ings and furnished good thought for his hearers. He was ably assisted by Mrs Hunt in the singing, who had a sweet contral to voice of much melody and vol ume. The choir of the church al so furnished splendid music at each service. Mr. Hunt is now engaged in a meeting at Winona. As Ycu Like It Club.

Cemetery Association. The Cemetery Association met at three o,clock May 26, at the home of Mrs. Clayton. After the reading of the minutes the following reports were submitted and approved. Fi nance Committee, Mrs. W. P. Long chairman reported total receipts, $92.69, disbursements, $52.50, balance on hand $40.19. Since the last meeting collec tions to the amount of 52.oo have been made on lots and at the present meet ing various^ members of the finance committee turned oyer to the treasur er 26 00 from membership feis. Mrs. Btairof the Correspondence Committee reported six letters written four replies received, Mrs. Pledge twenty-six letters six replies, Mrs. Ciayton five letters two replies, Miss Emma Edmonds tan letters, replies to these were sent to to President or City Board. The Committee on Plan of Work had not had a meeting and made no formal report, but Mrs. Clayton of that com mittee made some valuable suggestions along the line of their work. The President Mrs. J. W. Hoyle that the work on the driveway had not yet been done. Mrs. Pledge was appointed to ask the Mayor for the use of the town hands to give the cemetery a genera^ cleaning. Mrs/Hoyle was empowered to draft rules governing the care and use of the cemetery. These rules, of course, look to the beautifying of the cemetery and to the best interest of all in any way connected with it. They are to be submitted^ to the Association and if approved to be submitted to the City Board for their approval. Mrs. Hoyle introduced the resolutions which follow, they were unanimously adopted by the association. In view of the fact that some of the officers of Glenwood Cemetery Asso ciation have made a careful inspection of some of the most recently establish ed cemeteries in some of of our cities, and a study of the rules and regulations pertaining to same, prominent among which is the Forest Hill Cemetery of Menrmhis. which wa3 planned and laid out by a celebrated landscape gardner. and where everything possible has been done to prevent the converting of this cemetery into a marble yard; but on the other hand to cause It to assume the beautiful park appearance, and in the absence of rules and regulations for Glenwood Cemetery, therefore be it resolved. 1st That we earnestly request li i _ _’ 4. i __a. . e ail lot unutio in uo n pai t vi uui cemetery, to put no obscure curbing, fence or enclosure of any kind around their lots, as they are a detriment to a proper care of lots, but to have the lots sodded in grass in order that they may be kept mowed. 2nd That if f.owers are desired, that the graves be sodded also and flowers be cultivated only across the top of the graves, as all others are in the way of moving and p.’oper care of lots. 3rd That all lot owners in the old part of the cemetery, who place enclos ures around lots, be requested to let them run with the ground, instead of raising high walls. 4th We recommend to all lot owners in any part of the cemetery to place in future only one monument in center of lot, and only a headstone at each grave Foot ^qnes are only a detriment to the lot. we would ssy to that the heavy markers, recently placed in our cem etery, similar to those on the Thompson lot and others, are not allowed in the park-lawn cemeteries. These resolutions being adopted, there being no further business the associa tion adjourned. A Letter From Miss Johnson. Dear Tupelo Friends: Now that peaches are beginning to ripen I want to tell you something of this wonderful fruit region. All schools in Tifton have closed and for two weeks I have been in Perry, sixty miles below. Perry is in the heart of this fruit belt that is said to be the greatest peach growing section in the world. Eight miles from here are the Miami Orchards of 80,000 trees. Ten miles in another direction are the Hale Orchards of 24,000 acres. I did not learn the number of trees. There are a few thousand pear trees in these orchards. The land is divided into mile squares by roads,so wagons can haul the peach es to the packing houses. In each or chard is a regular little village, a store school and church. Yes, and a hotel which is used only during the packing We were shown over the packing house which was a curiosity to me. There is a mill close by where timber I for crates and baskets is sawed. Boy3 make crates and ladies and girls make baskets. The Hales employ 1000 hands during the busiest season. A few early days in July last year, they shipped twenty car loads a day. Think of it! I got these statements at first hand and know they are reliable. Am the guest of Mr. Smith, a very prosperous plant er and one of my earliest Georgia friends. In company with him and his wife in a surrey behind his splendid match horses we have traveled over one hundred miles through magnificent farming lands and through this won derful fruit belt. It has been the most fascinating outing I have had in many a day. Now Mr. Typo, I want to say to you please don’t get the figures wrong. In a former letter j ou had me say that Tifton’s population is 2000, whereas it is 4000 and the liveliest town for its size I ever saw. Before closing I want to tell Arthur Berkley that if he will come to see me when I return to Tifton will take him out in an automobile every day, There are 200 private cars there and they fly around almost as plentiful as buggies. Tifton has two auto firms that do a fine business. The maidunes are tnadu in Atlanta, Georgia product you see. But to go back to peaches, how I do wish all of you could come with me the peach season. It is from May to November but the peaches of the three summer months are the best. I ex pect toba in North Ga. during July and August and the peaches will be ripe there then.
