A color scheme of red made every thing bright and glowing and transmitted the effect to guests, whose wit and repartee kept at top notch during the entire even ing meal, making a joyous affair of the occasion. The beautiful crimson center-piece was made of rich verbena grown in the the porch boxes which have so transformed the appearance of the parsonage this spring. Crim son verbena marked the place cards, showing the skill with which Miss Margie Kate wields the artist's brush, the individual service of salted almond being in attractive containers which were also hand painted in red. After dinner cigars were serv ed to the gentlemen while the two lady guests were entertained with music in the sitting room. This is the second delightful social affair at the parsonage this month and shows the hearts of the pastor and his wife to be with their people in all phases of life. Mt. Hiermon Notes. July 24, 11)21. We have been having good rains of late and tile crop pros pects have improved wonderfully. There is prospects of a little cot ton being made, and that raises the spirits of everybody. The young folks have all re· turned from the summer school at Franulinton, and we don't hear anything out of them but teaching school. Base ball seems to be the nu· cleus around which everything revolves, All political and re ligious creeds, and social strains business and laborers meet and shout for their favorite teams, Butit's all in hte's game and I suppose it is all right. The school will soon have com* pleted its coorpse of teachers and the prospects bor the best term we have ever had is very bright. The Baptist people are rush* ing the completion of their new church so they will be able to hold their protracted meeting in it. Mirs. J.

The morning was extremely hot; to te dof the t orderly row seemed a "long, long trail" Indeed. But presently as she hummed and conscientiously pirked, a man came down the long trail with a basket. 9 "Good day for picking," he pleasant ly remarked. Nan nodded. She was not acquaint ed with the etiquette of the vine yard, but as the young man inter spersed soft whistled tunes with cas ual conversation, she fot-got about ett- 4 quette and answered him in good natured camaraderie. "My name is plain Bill Jones," he * told her; "easy to remember. I'm tiot ~ wvorking here regularly-Just filling in. And you-?" Nan turned down the brit of the garden hat to hide her confusion. "I'm just filling in, too," she said. "W\'here are you going to eat your lunch?" Bill Jones asked in the friend ly manner which was not in the least presumptttous. "I am going to eat mitne back in a shady spot near the fence. Aunt TiI ly fixed a generous packet of sand wiches for me, and doughnuts. Yol will have to have one of those. Aunt Tulle's doughnuts were made to be shared." "Thanks," said Nan; "I will," But the shrewd dark eyes read her subterfuge as she attempted to slip away. "You haven't brought lunch with you," accused Bill Jones. "Please stay and share mine." And some way er other the appeal lug "please" was impossible to re sist. Two soiled and weary pickers promptly made their way to a certain. shady place near the fence, and corn. muned as they ate their meal. "I think," said Nan at last in a small voice, "that I'll just work an hour more, then go. It does make one's back ache, doesn't it?" Bill Jones was at once sympathet ic. "Stop right where you are, if you feel that wa'," he advIsed. Nun went slowly and regretfully down the road to a woodsy spot where she had e ha er car; it seemed a pity to have to run away from the only really happy day of one's visit, just because convention made that sort of happiness forbidden. Whatever would the Wilkins and her own femily think of her enjoyment in such chance acquaintanceship? She gazed ruefully at her stained gingham dress. "Thought I'd get in and run the car out for you," a voice remarked. Bill Jones, In neat customary attire, sat in the seat. "Step in, Miss Nan Tuiley," he per. suaded. "Please do not deny the friendsbip I have worked so hard to win. I was sitting around the curve of the Wilkins' veranda this morning when you and Bob were talking.
