On Saturday, May 30, about
60 happy, jolly children and
young people, with the officers
and teachers of the Baptist Sun
day School boarded hay wagons
buggies, and surreys and hied
them away to the country for
what they are determined from
now on to be their annual out
ing. The particular point of
their destination was the beau
tiful grove and the spring
which flows out from under the
mountain at the foot of Pilot
Knob. A more ideal place
scarcely be found for a Sunday
School outing than Knob spring
Nature has devoted hundreds
and thousands of years tQ the
making of this ideal spot. Here
the giant oak towers, througn
whose leafy boughs the sum
mer's heat cannot penetrate.
4The spring is large enough to
supply a whole city, and its wa
ter is unsurpassed. Giant boul
ders, carved by the centuries,
lend majesty to the scene. Upon
one of these was spread the
bountiful repast prepared by the
ladies of the Baptist Church
and the young ladies of the Sun
day school. No better descrip
tion could be given perhaps,
, than to say, if there were those
present who were fond of any
particular menu above another,
they certainly had no cause to
complain, since in the dinner
served there were the makings
of a douzen courses, and each
picnicer had the privilege of
serving the courses (to himself)
to his own taste.
. Lemons, sugar, and ice were
taken to add an artificial touch
to the drink that nature fur
nished. The "artificial touch"
was the best that could be done,
however,- since the water of
Knob Spring can scarcely be
improved upon.
In the afternoon pictures of
the school were made, after
which sixty tired and happy
picnickers embarked upon the
. hay, wagons, etc. again for
Cookeville and their respective
It has been but a little over a
year since the Baptist Sunday
School was organized with twen
ty-flve enrolled. During the
year considerably above a hun
dred have been enrolled, and
the present attendance ranges
from fifty to seventy-five. In
spite of losses on account of the
guiding power and in his desire
to lead them and, use them here
in Cookeville.
A few of their valued mem
b rs will be away during the
summer vacation; but their
promise is given to be back &
gain at the opening of the city
and County high schools in
September. After their return
a series of class events and re
ceptions are planned and prom
ised on the part of the officers
of the school. These will
doubtless be looked forward to
with anticipations of pleasure
In the meantime the Cooke
villet Baptist Sunday School is
always glad to extend -a hearty
welcome to visitors, or receive
new members. Are you a regu
lar attendant at Sunday school?
If not would you not like to
join this happy, faithful band
of workers at the Baptist Sun
day School.
