Our boys were very grateful to Mrs. R.D. Bowser for her most helpful talk which she gave them last Sunday, 4 p.m. As usual
the boys were out in full.
The Men's Meeting Sunday was good and the men were ready to speak for Christ. How many of us hesitate to say a word for the
one who has bought us by his precious blood.
Our fifth anniversary was celebrated at the Second Baptist Church, last Sunday, 7:15 p.m. A short song service was conducted
by brother R.J. Bass. Then the programme for the occasion was rendered. Invocation by Rev. J.E. Jones, D.D. Singing by
the congregation. Reading of the scriptures by Sec'y W.A. Hunton. Prayer by Rev. W.W. Browne, President of the True Reformer's
In brief and pointed way our President R.T. Hill spoke of the year's work then followed the report of the General Secretary,
S.C. Burrell. There were ten youths transferred from the Junior Department to the Association. This shows that the work
is having the desired effect. The president of the Junior Department, Mr. Frank Bolling, read an excellent paper; Mrs. George
W. Lewis, President of the Ladies Auxiliary, proved by her remarks that she understands what the Ladies Auxiliary is to the
young men. We feel by her remarks that much good will come to the work. Rev. W.W. Browne was very much impressed by the
work done among the boys, so much so as to bring him to his feet and cause him to endorse the work by an encouraging speech
and his means. Rev. L.B. Goodall, D.D., who delivered the special address, was so crowded for time that it was impossible
for him do himself justice, nevertheless our brother showed to us that he came to us with his heart full of good things from
the Lord. We hope to have him come again soon. Richmond lives everything that is good. On the account of the lateness of
the hour, Secretary W.A. Hunton did not speak. This we regretted very much. We wish to thank the church, choir, the public
and friends for their help.
