"My Country 'Tie of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty." Piedmont Associa tion Met With Enon Piedmont Itijptist associationf met with the chureh at l<:non August 1st. Introductory sern)n was preached by lRev. T. E. Durham. Bro. Durham gives promise of a good preacher and a useful man. Rev. D. V. lliott, the moderator, called the meeting to order, and as sisted the clerk, H. Dean Singleton, in reorganizing the body. Mr. Iliott was the first moderator forty years ago when the association was organized. The organization was effected by the election of Rev. .1. L. Willis of the Six Mile Academy as moderator. H. D. Singleton was re-elected clerk and L. L. Smith assistant clerk and treasurer. Both these brethren have served the association for several years, and very efficiently. lIro. Willis will make a splendid presiding oflicer. Rev J. Dean Crain made a great speech on the work among the soldiers at Camp Sevier. lie is a speaker of great power. While he was speaking we thought of an avalanch coming down a mountain side sweeping every thing before it. Certainly it was one ;f the greatest speeches we have ever heard. If Bro. Crain could make that 4 speech before all the associations in the state surely it would not be hard to get money to support the work. Rev. W. NI. Whitesides of Charles ton told of the needs in that great city. Rev. J. Furman Moore told in agraphit way how he had worked among the soldiers at Camp Sevier and had let many of them to Christ. it was s great day. The church at Enon had arranged; logtable under the I a re eu t re near the church, and 1)ni h:t table wa: an abundance .f the very best to ":ti I;! and tde ladies of the chusrch aora i t0 aill. It was an ideal 1,.: , 1'r at big dinner, and the big dinner was surely there. I don't think I ever saw a much dinner left after so many people rains that Thursday threatened; howev er six churches were rep~resented and although a mere handful was present no one regretted that they had braved the wveasther and comie. r The subject of Sunday Schools and Periodicals were discussed without an~ reports and the clerk requested to gel the reports, together with any othert that had not been presented, and hav< them printed ia the minutes; also the churches that had not got their letter in. This, with the Woman's Work, consumed the forenoon. Dinner was served in the house, a so cial hour was taken, and the afternoor was given to Education, including Min Academy on all of which there were Disussonby W. M. Whitesides, J. L. ilisS.J. Leopard, 1I. D. Single ton and J. D. Crain, who was the prin cipal spaeand in his characteristic style, we saw the needs of our Christian schools in, perhaps, a greater way than ever before.

Be yours to lift it high. If ye break faith with us who dief * We shall not sleep, tho poppies blow In Flanders' Fields. THE ANSWER (By J. A.
