Transcript of Article

The Baptist Sunday School association met at First Baptist Church, July 26. A large number of delegates from different Sunday Schools throughout the country were present. And noble speeches were made on subjects of vast importance, concerning Sunday Schools and Teachers. Two elegant essays were rendered by Misses Flannagan and Alexander.

The PLANET was adopted as their leading organ in the state. After all business had been attended to, the Association adjourned to meet with Mt. Sinai Sunday School Saturday before the third Sunday in September. J. S. Sammens is their distinguished President of whom the Association may well feel proud to have such a distinguished leader. He with the other officers have pledged to do all in their power to make this Association what it should be. T.E. Wheeler is Secretary, and W.A. Kenny, Corresponding Secretary.

Mr. R. Kelser, President of the Piedmont Industrial and Land Improvement Company, has returned from his trip through Tide Water Va., where he has been lecturing for the Good Samaritan Lodges of which he is Grand Chief.

The Literary met at Miss Lizzie Howard's Friday night and a joyful time was the result. The paper read by Mr. Maury and criticized by Miss Alexander was full of interesting facts. A stump speech was by made by B. Bullock.

Mr. Lewis Wayland made a flying visit home to his wife, from Weyers CoveMonday, where he has been spending the summer. He went back yesterday.
