All the Sabbath-school missiona

Rev. Dr Holley and his good
people made our sojourn in Macon
among his people like one in the
family. While there we were the|
guest of Dr. E. E. Green and
family. His is a model home.
Prayer is offered morning and
evening, and everything else moves]
; without friction' in that home of
; the old school; even the dog is
educated. Dr. Green’s son and
our schoolmate. Dr. Charles Green,
has an excellent practice. Mrs.
Green and little Mamie make home
sweet, while Cornelius, a young
man of refinement and of a very
few words, collects for his father.
■: It is always a great pleasure fo
Dr. Green, Sr., and me to meet;
for as an old man his mind runs
back to the early 70’s when he was
quite a young man from Lincoln
University, teaching school in and
about Clinton, S. C., and when 1
was a boy wearing my first ma
ma’s made breeches. We often
went back to those old days and
found joy we could not express.

Friday night and Saturday at Fort
Valley High School with Prof,

portunity of seeing their work in
the class rooms. They have well]
fitted teachers and their work is
neat and thorough. Suffice it to
say that we couldn’t expect things
to be otherwise about there when
Prof. Hunt is at the head.
•The babies Prof, and Mrs. Hunt
carried from Biddle a few years;
ago to Fort Valley are two large
girls and a large boy attending]
school; but Prof, and Mrs. Hunt
present the same faces, cherry

we always called Prof. Hunt one'

from him any of his essential dig
