Will ask for a little space in the grand old Picayune, to tell of a childrens day service at Bethel, last Sunday. It was a success from start to finish. It was con ducted by Bro. Jno. D. Coopwood. Bro, Coopwood was the right man at the right place, and he deserv es great praise for the success of the day. We had a very large con gregation it is supposed there was over 400 people there. _ It was thought by some that there'would not be dinner enough to feed the crowd. But we are proud to say there was a fine dinner and plen ty of it. Yes enough to feed the crowd twice. The__3inging was good, the speeches by the boys and girls was very entertaining. There is some boys and girls around Bethel that will be heard from some day. We had a nice lecture at 11, a. m. by Eld W. H. Harris on Missions, after which a collection was taken for the American Baptist Publication Society, also a collection was tak en in the afternoon for the Bap tist Orphans Home at Montecello Ark., both collections was good.

In stylish, substan tial vehicles we have always been the leaders, turning out more jobs than any concern this side of Little Rock. We have been particularly careful in buying this last car of vehicels, and we believe when it comes to a Buggy, our judg ment is worth something. Our vehicles are made by well known, well advertised builders, and there is. not a job in our stock, but what has the name-plate of a reputable manufacturer on the rear end of the body. Beware of the Buggy that the manufacturer will not put his name on. We are proud to show our Buggies and appreciate a call from any one. PRESCOTT HDW. CO. (In the big building) dollars.

Saw Editor Picayune:— Some have wanted to know why I have not said something about the success of the picnic. Well I thought you knew it was a collassal success. You all ought to know this though, it seemed that everybody was there and the cook. Well did you ever see so much that was good to eat? Did you ever see so many pretty women, so many good looking men? An optimistic smile seemed to be on everybody. I want to thank all who contri buted to the success of this grand social gathering in which new acquaintances was made, new friends were created and all made better by getting together in social contact. And I want to pity those who would not help to defray the expenses of this noted gathering the result of which means so much for Pres cott. The writer has been out about forty dollars for this pic nic, some have genei great benefit did nothing-. In | this connection I will say we will I get the bridge then listen at ■ some of these hide bound pess imistic Vamires say, “we killed a bear" yes we will get the bridge and better roads which means much to Prescott and community. W as nt that a dick-nailing speech that S. Q. Severe made for good roads and public impro vement? That speech ought to make him governor and will, I hope. Several have asked about the saw mill. The mill is doing well it was in debt at the start and I have managed to keep it in debt. It had nothing at the start and has held its own pretty well. I think there ought to be money in the saw mill business if it ever was, as there has never been much come out of it, it ought to : be in there yet sure. Weli I am going after it and perhaps I can tell you more about it in some future letter. I know I am get ting in bad company or it used to.be so considered. It has not been long since a saw mill man was Hardly respectable. White folks would not speak to him and no one would sell him any thing or believe anything he would say. I can remember this well, cant you? It used to be that merchants would sell him at any price, if he sold him at all and collected nothing he was not much surprised. It is undif erent now though, since the re publicans put tariff on lumber and the trusts on it. Lumber has made a white man out of the mill man. It has paid off 1 's ac count put him in good society, educated hischildern, sends him to summer watering places, has made a good citizen out of him and we poor merchants have been running him down to get his account. It has taken lying and misrepresentation out of him and made a good church rm«mber with some exceptions. It did not do this for the writer. I guess my church had not heard of the great progress the saw mill man has made or they would not have fired me so bodaciously and uncerimoniously from their ranks for ficticious betting. Well this lumber business might have been the real cause, they perhaps have not heard what strides for reform the saw mill man has made. I should not be surprised if this did not help to do it, you know some baptist are not very well posted except in the Bible. There was no other charge against me, and they said so, and because I would not tell a lie and say I was sorry they fired my camp. Well I must get out of this saw mill business anyway. J. M. MILBURN.
