Transcript of Article


The Albemarle Sunday School Association had a call meeting with the Union Ridge Baptist Sunday School on the 21st and 22nd inst. This Association is destined to be a great power in organizing and assisting feeble Sunday Schools, and in disseminating Baptist literature and doctrine. There was quite a large delegation present, and a handsome contribution realized, thus evincing the appreciation of the schools composing the organization. Rev. Scott of First Baptist Sunday School was appointed to preach a special Sermon [sic] in the morning, but failed to be there on account of urgent matters but made up for it in the afternoon. He preached an eloquent sermon, and all who heard it were pleased with it. After an old fashion hand-shaking the Association adjourned to meet with the First Baptist Sunday School Saturday July 26, 1890.

Monday after next, besides being court day, is pay day of the Piedmont Industrial and Land Improvement Company. Every share holder come to the front and rally as you did before. Bring your friend and let them see what you are doing.
