The lS'.h annual cnnvenno.i of
the Cabarru3 County Sunday Schocl
Association met at Rocky River
church on Thursday, the loth. ,
The meeting was opened bv Sc:ip- ;8u ranees of the good moral and dis
ture reading by the paster in charge, ciplmary effer.s of such visits and
Rev. R V Lancaster, and prayer by such interest; m-; Tested toward
Mr. Jesse Earnhardt. ; these unfortunate cv.minals.
Rev. H A McCallough address-d' Mr. Jesse Earnhardt waa made a
the convention on the subject as-j committee to provide for the spirit
signed him: "How to make the conn ! ual interests of the chain gang for
vention of highest value to aU." j the ensuing year.
The speaker set forth the unity of j Election of of!icer3 was then en-w
the Sunday school cause, the benefits ! tered into and re.inlt.ed as follow?:

made a verv creditable speech of i No. 10, J H Lon; No. 11, R G
welcome which was responded to by
the secretary, Mr. J A Cline, m his
own pleasant way.
The roll of delagates was then
made up and the minutes of the last
meeting read and approved.
Reports of vice presidents from
the townships were then made fcr
Nos. 1, 2, 4 and 5, Nos. 3 and G fail
ing to report.
The president then invited infor
mal interchanges of vievs and ex
periences in the Sunda" school work,
but no one seemed ioided, or all
were too much bent on an essential
part of the program soon to come.
Secretary Cline then made bis re
port findiug some negligence or in
difference as to township organize j
tionQ in a few instanced, but as a
whole the Sunday school work was
making fair progress.
The mdispensible part wa3 next
taken up and all proceeded in a most
effectual way to respond to Mr. Mor
risoh'a speech of welcome by dis
posing of a poition only of the boun
ties so richly spread in that tnag
nificent grove. After the feast all
again repaired to the historic old
church when a prayer service was
rendered, after which the treas
urer's report was made showing G2
in the treasury.
"How to improve our township
work" was then treated by different
ones in 10 minute talks.
Mr. Jesse Earnhardt dwelt on the
idea of "More of the Spirit of the
Master;" President J R White,
"More township meeting;"" Mr. D B
Coltrane, "Better preparation for an
more effectual teaching."
Kev. A K Pool then rendered a
solo with most touching impressive
ness. The reports of township vice pres
idents was then reanmed. Nos. 7, 8
and 9 did not respond, however.
"Individual Faithfulness the Key
to True Success" wa3 then treated
by Rey. A K Pool. He suggested
that there ia more heroism in a
leader's getting ten to do the work
of ten than for the leader himself to
do that same work for them. The
address was instructive and enter
taining. Inquiries were then made of sers
vices rendered to the chain gang.
Key. A K Pool had held services
with them and was very much grat
ified with apparent efforts.
Mr. !C G Montgomery reported
that the Epworth League of the
Concord Central M. E. church under
tbe leadership of a young lady had
held meetings with them with very
encouraging e iTects
Mr. Jesse Earnhardt reported a
ni3,;Jo; that n-i held with them in
which several exnresed redolutions
Mr. H MoNamara expressed as-
Sides; No. 12, L D Duval.
It wa3 ordered that the executive
committee authorize some one to
visit townships 7, 8 and 9 to get
them to resume their connection
with the county association.
The executive committee appoint
ed by the president are Messrs. D B
Coltrane, Wi.son Winecoff and J D
Mr. L D Duvul was made delegate
to tbe State association with D B
Coltrane as alternate,
Nixt meeting is to be held at

These interesting services wre
frequently and suitably intersper3d
with music by the following choirs;
'ld Water and Mt. Hermon, Rocky
Rivtr, Bays Chapel, Patterson's
Mill, Zion, Gilwood and Long's.
The singing indicated much train
ing and enthusiasm and it is need
les to say formed no small part of
the day's enjoyment
Thus the day was pleasantly and
we hope proGtably spent and the
long-wished.for rain came just in
time to more than bedew many of

Speaking of Yellow-Jackets
Mr. John H Long says he has
been surveying for thirty years and
the most singular incident that has
happened to him, occured over in
Mecklenburg the other day. Messrs.
JMW Alexander, J L Stafford, S
S McWhirter and himself were di
yidinp the estate of the late John F
Morrison, and at a beginning, point
on the line was a nest of yellow
jackets, and along the line for a
distance of several hundred yards
there were four nests of yellow
jackets and several of wasps. Mr.
LoDg was stung in the left eye,
which caused him considerable
