educational rally day at WINGATE
And the Reunion of Old Students of the Wingate
o’clock. Mr. Clyde Bivens was introduced. He
made a very interesting talk on “Some Impres-
Wingate School.” The impreslions
which Mr. Bivens had before and after reaching
Wingate are as follows:
1. The Wingate school was a place where one
had to work.
2. That the Wingate school was a good one.
3. That,,the Wingate school had very strict
4.. That there was a peculiar religious atmos
phere in the Wingate school and village.
5. That it was an honor to lead a clean life in
the W ingate school.
Mr. Bivens said “The school life at Wingate
was ideal and that a square deal was given to
both teacher and student.”
Following Mr. Bivens, Mr. Ray Funderburk o?
Monroe, was introduced. His subject was, “Some
facts regarding the students who have gone out
from the Wingate school.” Mr. Funderburk
handled his subject well and in a most interest
ing manner. He told of the Wingate students
who were following every vocation in life and
were making good at their various pests of duty.
What Mr. Funderbhrk said about the Wingate
students was worth a great deal both to them
and to the school. In closing, he declared that
the^Wingate school so far had made good.
Prof. B. Y. Tyner was then presented to say
what ever he felt on his heart to utter. His talk
was indeed a timely one and very much in order
and every one seemed glad to hear his message.
It IS the opinion of many that this was a good
day for Wingate and that it will mean much to
the school and the people at large who are inter
ested in Christian education.
DEATH OF MRS. NANCY ANDREWS.
LETTER FROM BRO. HENRY MILLS.
One of my coveted privileges now is to be per
mitted to visit old Bro. Henry Mills, of Norwood,
occasionally. He is nearing his ninety-sixth
birthday. It was my piivilege to call on him re
cently, and while I was with his he dictated a
message to his brethren and friends as follows:
My dear Brethren and Friends: I was taken
sick the sixth of last February with lagrippe and
it was such a violent attack that I did not recol
lect anything for nearly two weeks after I was
taken. After I commenced mending the disease
took my feet and they bled a good long while at
the center of my heels. I am a .good deal bet
ter now, my general health is good and I do not
suffer any pain, but I have not walked a step
since I was taken sick. I am just about paralizad
in my legs and feet.
“If I live till October 20, I will be 9G years old.
I professed religion August 8, 1843, and was ban-
tized September 10, 1843. I have trusted the
Lord for these 72 years and have been trying
that long to do something towards the support
of His church, and He is dearer to me now th..in
evei before, 1 am not afraid to lie down and
sleep and I am not afraid to die.
“I cannot be here much longer and I would be
glad to see my friends and brethren and pass a
few words with them.
As many of the readers of The Baptist Messen
ger readers know, Bro. Mills was one of the
founders of the Norwood church and is a pioneer
Baptist of the good old type. Now in the evening
of his life, with an eye of faith looks forward
with joy in his heart to the glorious home of the
redeemed beyond this world. His long life of
faith is testimony to the sovereign grace of God.

We had a delightful trip to Taxahaw, S. C., on
the fourth Sunday in July. Prof. H. J. Langs
ton, J. J. Perry, and John Watson accompanied
us. We had a fine congregation to preach to
Mrs. Nancy Andrews, daughter of J. C. Rus
sell, was twice married. In 1903 she was married
to Charles E. Morris, and to this union there were
born two children, one boy and one girl. Several
years after his death she was married to Fred
Andrews, and to this union there was born one
girl. She is survived by a husband, father, three
children, four brothers, two sisters, and a host
of relatives and friends.
Sister Andrews was 33 years, 4 months and 2
days old and had suffered about 18 months with
that dreaded disease, consumption. Everything
was done for her that money and attention could
give, but the Death Angel called her home July
25, where she will be free from pain and suffer
ing. She was a devoted wife and mother and a
kind neighbor, and to know her was to love her.
She professed faith in Christ when about twelve
years old and joined the Baptist church continu
ing steadfast in the faith, and living a consecrat
ed Christian life. She was a member of West Al
bemarle Baptist church at the time of her death
and had been for many years. When she had
the opportunity of attending church services she
was faithful in the work haying taught a Sun
day school class for many years. She belonged
to the choir, and possessing a melodious voice
she used it for the glory of God. Her life was not
in vain, for her to live was Christ and to die was
gain. Just a few hours before death, she bade
her loved one good-bye,' telling them to continue
steadfast in the great work and said she would
soon be with her mother. She died singing the
praises of God.
Funeral services were conducted by her pastor.
Rev. C. J. Black, the day following her death at

relatives were present to view for the last time

ed one. Her body was laid to rest in the ceme

heartfelt sympathy. May she rest undisturbed
until the Resurrection of (he saints.

On July 8, the Death Angel visited the home of
J. W. Bailey and carried his daughter, Emma, ro
her eternal home. She was 22 years of age. She
had only been sick four weeks. The family had
moved from Albemarle to Troy early in the
spring and her death was a shock to the mem
bers of the West Albemarle Baptist Philathea
Class where she had been a faithful member.
About a week before her death she sent a re
quest asking for the prayers of her Class, which
was received with interest. She had been a mem
ber of Wadeville Baptist church for some time,
and becoming dissatisfied with her life caused
her to realize the things she was lacking at this
critical moment. She began to.seek and found
peace. She left a bright testimony of her hope
and eternal happiness in the home beyond. She
leaves a father, one brother, two sisters, and a
host of relatives and friends to mourn for her.
May the richest blessings of God rest upon the
bereaved ones and keep them until they meet the
departed ones. Her remains were laid to rest in
the Wadeville cemetery to await the Resurrec
tion morning. A MEMBER.
