The seventh annual meet ing of the Burke County Sun day School Association was held at Linville church on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. There was a good attendance, both of delegates and others, and the good peo ple of that section, as is al ways the case with them, en tertained the visitors in royal style. At the dinner hour a long table in the grove near the church was laden with everything nice to eat and no one went away hungry. It was our pleasure to at tend on Thursday and hear the excellent speeches on Sunday school work by Mes srs. W. F. Hallyburton, John and Jake Patton, H. O. Houk Revs. Thorn well Jacobs and John A. Williams. The singing was also good. The convention song Let a Lit tle Sunshine In was par ticularly well rendered. Mr. I. T. Avery, who takes a great deal of interest in Sunday schools and to whose efforts is largely due the suc cess of the county Sunday school association, was re elected president of the or ganization, as well as were all of the other officers of last year. Another interesting" feature of Thursday's exercises was the thanksgiving service at 3 p. m. It reminded oneofan old-fashion Methodist love feast. We believe the county Sun day school association is doing a great amount of good and it should have the hearty sup port of all the people. The next meeting of the associa tion will be held at Erwin's Chapel, two and a half miles north of Morganton. Papa "What is Willie cry ing about?"
