THE PALATKA NEWS, PALATKA, FLA. PAGE NO. FIVE. A r T PASTORS Receive Their Annual As signments to Pastorates. In the administration of the affairs of the Methodist Episcopal church, South, possibly no event has a great er interest among the members than the annual appointments of the itin erant ministry of the church. The session which closed in Tampa on Monday was the 72d in the his tory of Florida Methodism. Like its predecessors the reports showed a steady growth of the denomination in this State; the financial reports of the nrcsidiner elders showed nlsn that all the conferences claims had been met. The session throughout was mo:;t profitable both socially and spiritual ly, and the conference was so well pleased with the administration of Bishop Morrison, that it by unani mous vote asked for his presidency next year. There have been many changes in the pastorates this year, and a num ber of strong men have been trans ferred to Florida from other confer ences. These transfers from other conferences are: W. A. Cooper, L. M. Broyles, I. T. Cameron, R. Ira Bar nett, W. B. Duncan, Jr., J. J. Jones, H. A. Spencer, Geo. E. Summers, B. D. Bourn, W. R. Evans. Transferred from this conference: T. E. Weaver, to South Carolina; W. E. Thompson, to Virginia; W. A. lietts, to South Carolina, and J. W, Bridges, to South Carolina. W. !. Allen, a former Putnam county young man who has made hi mark in the ministry, and who has neen serving the past year or two as an evangelist, was announced as on the supernumerary list. Rev. W. M.

When the English courts of the thir teenth century desired to make li kuowu that a man bad been murdered they had to take into account the eon fusion of languages in England. lie cause every Englishman did not use the same word for "kill" it was neees snry to rake the languages of Europe for synonyms in order that every wight In Albion, whatever his ediicn lion or ancestry, might find at tensi one word which he understood And lawyers today retain all these Norman nn.l Saxon synonyms.
