This gathering of people was in I
[•ommemoration of the(iutli birth- t
day of Mrs. Riley llovles. The \
Reverened Wilson preacheti at
(.Quaker Gap church that morning, t
and as usual. Mr. and Mrs. Boyies i
went out to hear him. Immedi
ately after prt:aching they started \
back home. Mrs. Boyies not i
knowing that the preacher and
the larger part of his congrega- :
lion would follow on to her home ;
later on. When Mr. and Mrs.
Boyies reached home, iheir :
children iroiii \\ nistetn-Salem. ;
King and other points were
th"i*e. Thi se were not unex-
pecteel to Mrs. Bo\ les, for she j
was looking for them. But
imagine her surprise when she ;
saw the preacher and the people
coining in throng?* from the ■
church. After tlk- people had (
gathered (about 1 Id in all > a long
table which some of the neighbors ■
had improvised in th_- yard
while Mrs. Boyies was away at ■
church, was spread with the
richest viands and ge>od ti.ingsof 1
the land, for which the Rev.
V. ilsor. was aske 1 to ..her tluiiiks.
In ids !iet.euiction ihe preach., r .
gavt'exjiression to many beaut i- ;
fill and impressive thoughts; and
all portook of the fe; to their
heart's content. After dinner .
was over it was suggested that
Mr. and Mrs. Boyies stand up .
together and all the people pass
around and shake hands with i
them as an expression of their
good wiil and de.dre that God
would continue his blessings upon ;
them. Then "God be with yon 'till
we meet again," was sung, after
which the crowd broke up into
small groups and conversed on
various subjects until the time
came to return to their respective
lie fore closing these remarks 1
wish to say that Mr. and Mrs.
lioyles raised a remarkable fam
iiv of children, of which it seems
they should feel proud. There are
!l children living. 5' boys and ~
girls, and 1 know of no
stouter and healthier family of
children anywhere. Mr. Boyies
is a plain practical man. and
thinks the people would be much
more healthy and strong if they
would return to plainer and
| simpler methods of living.
Doubtless the health and busi
ness acumen of his children are
due to his good, plain common
seine ideas of diet and living.
Mr. and Mrs. Boyies are the
parents of the Boyies Bros..
