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 rules. 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 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. “HENRY MILLS.” 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. JAS. C. GILLESPIE. 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 there. 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 Prospec tchurch. A large number of friends and relatives were present to view for the last time •the remains and show their respect to the depart ed one. Her body was laid to rest in the ceme tery at that church. The bereaved ones have our heartfelt sympathy. May she rest undisturbed until the Resurrection of (he saints. A PHILATHEA. DEATH OF MISS EMMA BAILEY, ITEMS FRO.M BIG LICK.

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 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.
