Do you ask why there was no room in Mt. Zion Baptist Church of Charlottesville last Sunday for visitors? It was because we had just put in a baptistry and for the first time in the history of the church, we had the pleasure of baptizing nude our own "vine and fig tree." 15 soldiers of the cross put on Christ by baptism last Sunday morning.

Why is it that Rev. Hardy walks so proudly? Because Mrs. Bettie Ragland put a three dollar hat on his head last week.

Have you called on the pastor of the Mt. Zion Church since his congregation gave him that fine tea set? Yes, and I saw those fine slippers those ladies gave him too.

What is that Mrs. Harriett Scott is talking about? She is getting ready for that lost rib of brother Hardy's. Well, let us all help, for he is a hard worker and deserves all we do.

"A Nobody."
