E O's. met with Mis Maggie Gibbons at her pleasant country home This proved to be one of the most delightful meetings in the history of the society. After the regular business followed tb5 literary program, in charge of Miss Bristow. American humorists was the topic and a very enjoyable one it proved to be. Supper was then served, which was even more enjoyable than the feast ot mind which had preceded. The house was profusely dec orated with autumn leaves twenty one different kinds, which were numbered and all invited to write the name of each on a card bearing the same numbers. Two only proved equal to the occasion, Mrs. Patton and Mrs. McFar land. They claimed to have been raised in the country and named every one. Mrs, Patton drew the long straw and the prize. One sister asserted with confidence that a certain num ber was black haw. This was believed by several of the younger members who will not have such confidence in her hereafter, when the leaves were found to be those from an apple tree. But even learned ladies could not be expected to know with only half an hour's study, such rare specimens as plum, hazel, elm. etc. 'L iioSf.-' who answered to roll call were Mesdames Read. Pat ton, Brown, Rutledge, Proctor. Johnson, Scott, Owen, McFar land. Hallock and Noland and Misses Gentry Ely, Evans, Bristow. Balliet, i Brown, Wine and Gibbons. The drive home by moonlight proved a fitting finale to this I Swing open the gates of glory today, happy evening, where all were! And listen to catch what Jesus doth In Me morlnm.

Funeral services were held in the First Baptist meeting nouse uct. .!. Her pastor I. W. Read assisted by Rev. B. F. Hixson conducted the services. A larce number of lir frinHc were present to attest their love for her. Her life was a testimony to the religion she professed. It could be fittingly said of her as Jesus said of an other woman: - She hath done what she could." She did it in her home, among her friends, in helping the needy, in honoring God. She realized that life is doing. Her influence will never die. ould. No She hath done what she more for her Will be the endurance of doubt or fear. She has passed beyond all toil indeare Into the heavenly mansion so fair. Her deeds have a life Free from all cavl strife: Her acts were guided by love She lived in the light above. n many.
