NOTES OF GENERAL INTEREST.
Miss Beulah Lightfoot of Albemarle has been
quite sick recently, but we are glad to note that,
she is out again.
The meeting at Union Grove, Stanly county,
was a great success. Union Grove does things on
a grand scale all the +ime.
Our meeting at Bethel, Stanly county, was a
success. Many professions of religion were made
and Christians generally were stirred up.
A Baptist church will be organized at Porter on
Saturday before the fifth Sunday in August.
Let the brethren take warning and be on hand.
Rev. B. G. Whitley held a meeting of days at
Porter week before last which resulted in many
professions of religion and a general uplift of
Christian in that community.
Brother Snyder reports a fine meeting at
Mountain Springs last week. He received eight
for baptism. We like so much to hear of their
getting wet. Would not many a soul be happy
if they would get wet as the Lord has comtnanded
We understand that a Sunday school has been
organized at the McClure school house, in Stanly
county. Good. We do not know of a community
in the county that needs it more. It has many
good people in it but they have not the oppor
tunity of Sunday schools.
We have received this word from Bro. Jas. C.
Gillespie: “I received a message from my broth
er today to the effect that my father is very
low, entirely helpless and speechless. I may
have to go at any time. Pray for us.” Brother
Gillespie has our sympathy and prayers in his
hour of trouble.
There was a reunion and big birthday dinner
at Brother John H. Williams’ PT'iday, July 30.
We are sure they had a grand time. The editor
was invited but could not attend on account of a
meeting he was busily engaged in. We trust that
some one will give us a big write-up of it.
The editor aided Brother A. Marsh in a meet
ing of days at Union Grove crurch last week.
The meeting was a great one which resulted in
sixteen additions by baptism and two by letter.
This is a new church, two and one-half miles be
low Marshville. We were delighted with the hos
pitality of the community.
DEATH OF LITTLE ESTELLE MAULDEN.
On July 15, the spirit of little Rilla Estelle,
the eighteen months’ o]d child of Bro. and Sister
W. Jonah Maulden, went back to God who gave
it. Rilla was not a strong child and then about
a month ago she took whooping cough and that
was more than the frail little body could stand.
But the fond parents can take comfort in the
thought that the little life, which was scarcely
more than a bud, has opened up a precious flow
er in the paradise of God. May God’s spirit com
fort the bereaved ones. Funeral services were
conducted by the writer assisted by Bro. E. A.
Livingston, and interment was made in Norwood
cemetery. JAS. C. GILLESPIE.

Whereas Almighty God saw fit on May 14,
1915, to call Bro. G. W. Rogers home to. Heaven,

years, 10 months and 16 days, be it resolved.
First. That we thank God for the influence
he wielded over us as a co-worker in Christ.
Second. That as a friend and neighbor, he was
a helper which was appreciated, and his going
leaves us a burden from which he is now free.
Third. That the grace with which he bore his
great affliction, which came from God, was help

MR. CLARENCE HOPE.
The above is a cut of Mr. Clarence Hope, as
sistant Postmaster at North Charlotte, who has
recently been elected Superintendent of the North
Charlotte Baptist Sunday school. Mr. Hope is
young in years and in service, but he possesses
qualities, which consecrated- to the Master’s ser
vice, will make him a great pov.'er for good. He
is bright, energetic, and zealous in the work.
The people of North Charlotte place great con
fidence in him, and believe that their Sunday
school will greatly prosper under his leadership.
DEATH OF MRS. ESTHER STOKER.
Sister Esther Morris Stoker, daughter of Elder
D. P. Morris and wife of Bro. Willie Stoker, was
born December 29, 1884, and died July 15, 1915,
being 30 years 6 months and 16 days of age. This
was an unusually sad death because of the loved
ones, including an infant of only two months,
that were left behind. Sister Stoker was a good
woman, a .faithful wife and mother, a kind neigh
bor, and joining the church young her father say.s
fhe was good from childhood.
She was patient in her sufferings which had
been long drawn out. Her last effort to reghin
her health was in a hospital in Charlotte, but to
no avail. Her time had come, but she faced death
bravely. The grandparents of the child, Mr. and
Mrs. Stoker, have taken the infant to raise and
at last reports it was doing well.
The funeral services for sister Stoker took
place at Silver Springs and was attended by a
large number of friends and relatives. The ser
vices were conducted by Revs. Brooks and Gilles
pie. It is to he hoped that Bro. Stoker will be
able to keep all the larger children together but
he is too crushed by this grief to have his plans
very definite just yet. May the Lord sustain
him in this dark hour.—E. M. BROOKS.
