The members of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, South, and es
pecially those who met with the
children at rehearsals, have exhib

the preparation for the children's
day exercises this year, and a very
pleasant and profitable time was
had at the church last Sunday.
The handsome new church was
tastefully decorated with beautiful
flowers and potted plants, and the
day was all that could ihave been
desired to make the occasion a suc
cess. The children who took u part in
the exercises seemed to realize that
it was in every essential their day,
and from the least little tot up did
their parts creditably and nobly.
The exercises consisted of songs,
recitations and interesting and ap
propriate addresses. The offering
was good, much larger than usual.
A large and attentive audience en
tirely filled the church (from the
beginning of the program until the
final benediction, and all liare pro
nounced it one of the best services
of the kind they ever attended.
While no plan for lighting the
town have fully matured, we are
authorized to say that Camden wil
have electric lights.
Several plans are being consid

ment for getting a larger dynamo

probably be concluded within the
next few days.
In the event the city council does
not take favorable action, private
enterprise is ready, to put in the
plant. Anyway, the town is going
to liave eleetric lights.
