Fortun ately the day was cloudy, and the sun did not get in its usually hot countenance. Not until we had made half thejnurney did we see even a rugged child peeping through the door. Everyone seemed like all na ture to be taking a Sunday morning snot'Ze. We carefully gazed on the crops to see what we could of the prospects. Everything is late, but most of the corn seems to have, been planted since the last heavy rain and was up and looking fine. The cotton looked small and weakly, though clean and mostly scraped and chopped out. So much for the "crops". As we hove in sight of the church and cem etery we found a large crowd which had been decorating the graves in the old Williams cemetery, which we first passed by in 1865. Ic has grown to be a large city of the dead. It is kept in good shape, and flowers were upon almost if not every grave.

The Elements of a Living Sunday School, was discussed by Rev. 0. G. Perkins and J. W. Pur viance. . At noon a most elaborate dinner was spread and the crowd of at least 800 were fed with the usual basket fuls left over. After noon L. H. Brisco discussed the amount of interest to be put in a Sunday School, which should exceed that of our secular business. Tem perance as it relates to the Sunday School, was presented by Mrs. Maud Bell in an able paper. J. W. Purvi anpe, J. L. Littlefield and Rev. Perkins made short speeches on the subject of temperance. Bill Perkins made rather humorous and critical speech on the general condition of young men and young ladies. After bust ness matters were attended to, in eluding report of Sunday Schools, Adamsviile was selected as the place of next meeting. . At 3:30 we "geared up" and struck a pace for home, arriving on sched ule time at 7:30. Thus an arduous day was pliasShtly spent, with the hope that along someone's pathway a bud of hope or a flower of pleasure may have been strewn.
