Thursday, April 24th, was a red-letter 1
day in the history of the ancient, but
enterprising village of Kilmarnock
(named after Kilmarnock in Scotland,
or Lord Kilmarnock, one of the rebelli
ous nobility bch-aded by Queen Beas).
The crowd that assembled to witness
the laying of the corner-stone of the
Kilmarnock Southern Methodist church
Vraa the largest seen there since the
laying of the corner stone of the Ma
senic Hall twelve years ago. Visitors
from all the lower counties in the
Northern Neck began to arrive early
in the day, and some came from the
Southsidc of the Rappahannock river.
In the forenoon an excellent address
was delivered by the Rev. E. F. Garner,
of Irvington. on the function of the
Christian church in a civil community.
After a sumptuous dinner, which was
served in the town hall by the women
of the community, the Masons of Lan
castcr Union Lodge and visiting
brethren, about seventy strong, marched
in procession from their hall to the site
of the church on the eastern outskirts
of the viliage, where a great concourse.
of people had assembled to witness the
ceremoy of laying the corner-stone.
At the request of the master of the
lodge. Right Worshipful Philip K. Bau
man, grand senior deacon of the Grand
Ix)dge of Virginia, was present to pre
side, and direct the work. J. B. Cralle
acted as chief marshal.
At the conclusion of the Masonic
eoremony. T. J. Downing presented
the Hon. J. Boyd Sears, of Mathews,
ea the orator of the occasion. His ad?
dress was chaste and eloquent.
Th<- Kilmarnock church is about com
pleted. aml is one of the prettiest
buildings of the kind in this region.
The Kberal contributions fell short but
$40 of the debt. and this was covcred
by cheeK from Capt. Gco. P. Squires.
The work of building was bogun several
years ago under the pastorate of the
Rev. Porter Hardy, now located at
CepeiBle. and has heea carried to suc
J completion by his snecessor,
Rev. W. L. Waro.

On the 5th of April, as the morning's
sun rays were kissing the first spring
buils. little Elmo Lee, infant daughter
of Kenner C. and Minnie E. Rice,
scemed to listen to the Angel's calling,
"come with us" and her spirit went up
higher where the little ones are gather
ing home. Born on the 19th of January,
the birthday of our beloved Robert E.
Lee, she was named for him. Given
only a few months to be loved by two
fond parents who looked in the new
home next to see the blight of death.
Two hearts were sad by their darling's
depth but the will of the Heavenly
Father is best and we must listen when
He sayeth unto us, "be still, and know
that I am God."

While wcrthink the teardrops atart,
But the memory of our loved one
Still is f reah within our hearta.
How little we thought, dear brother.

Dearest mother. thou has lef t me.

But I hope to meet my loved one
On that brigrht and happy shore.
A precious one from us has srone.
A voice we loved ia still.il.
A place ia vacant in our home
Which never can be tilled.
God in his wisdom has recalled
The hoon His love had griven.
And thoug-h the body nluml>ers here.

Lonely the days and aad the hours.

But oh! a briarhtcr home tban oura,
In Heaven ia now her own.
