The congregations overtaxed the bouse many times, and I believe one result of the meeting will be laying the plans for a new building which will lik ly be built in the center of the town, and will be kept open every day. 24 were received into the fellowship of the church. I have never preached to more appreciative people, and I feel I am stronger and a better man because of the eight days at Union City. We were greatly pleased on Friday night at the coming of 50 members of Central Baptist Church of Martin. Tbey were given a very cordial welcome, and the Union City saints decided there and then to have a big delegation some night at the Martin-meeting which commences October 15th. The singing at Uniou City was un usually good under the efficient 'leader ship of Dr. J. D. Carlton and his estim able wife, who, is an accomplished pianist. The prospects there strikes me as be ing very bright, as they seem willing to give the right sort of co-operation to their spiritual and enthusiastic pastor, Une of tne most pleasant experiences there was speaking to about 800 pupils in four different public schools. Ben Cox in Weakly County Press, v In Memory of R. T. Maupin. Mr. Editor: I was requested long ago to write something about this good citizen and great soldier, but have seen nothing; hence this scrib ble. I am now in my 84th year, al most blind, and my hand is shaky. About 83 or 84 years ago, God gave to this country, and to this people, R. T. (Bob) Maupin to serve it in its highest and best interest, and af ter he had proven himself faithful and true, he, died. He was a good citizen,' he was a good neighbor, he was a good soldier He was a hero. He was a man. But now he is sleep ing in the arms of his mother, and the turf is smooth above him. The rain will moisten its roots and sum mon back the perishing life of its green bladed grass, and the crushed flower will lift its head again, smil ing unto heaven. His form is now before me, with no trace of death in its fine lineaments, and there i3 faint crimson on his faded old face. I can feel the last grip of his hand, and hear his last "Goodbye, Tom," dis tinctly, like a living, breathing thing, even when I know he is with the dead and the damp earth hides him, I would not think of him otherwise. His image lives within my memory as ha seemed before he rested nobly, with weariness and trials' of life, smiling on while poison mingled with his springs of life, and wearing a calm brow, while in his heart anguish was resting like a hand of fire, until at last the agony of thought grew un bearable and the sufferer died. Let him rest; let him sleep; and oh, may the clods lie lightly on him. T. R. INMAN, get my prices on painting ar rubber tiring. RED SPOT PRODUCTS.
