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.

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 homes. 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.. Winston-Salem, and of Mr, C. O. Boyies. proprietor of the lioyles Mercantile Company, King, N. and also of Mr. Ernest Boyies. proprietor of Mountain View Stock Farm. W P.
