Marshville, May 5. Ttao Sunday
m'.iool rally held in the Marshville
Methodist church on Wednesday was
one of absorbing interest from start
to finish. No cut and dried program
had been prepared, but the pastor.
Rev. J. J. Edward, had gotten to
gether four Stella attraction in their
line and when the time caiuo turned
them loose with instruction to shine
right where they were. They shone!
First came Dr. C. C. Weaver of Cen
tral Methodist church of Monroe, with
his inevitable and inimitable strain
of humor. After Inviting .Mr. Woos
ley, the superintendent of Sunday
school work, to take a nap while he
siioke, he proceeded to give some
sound ideas as to what a Sunday
school needed to build it up. He
sounded the note which predominated
throughout the entire day progress.
Next Miss Womach. the assistant
of Sunday school work In the state,
told something of efficient organiza
tion of classes, the books for them to
study, music for the little fellows,
organization of the cradle roll, and
many little things which would make
the Sunday school more Interesting
to the children.
After these talks came the material
feature of the day dinner on the
grounds. It was a true to order Meth
odist dinner, with all the frills, be
ginning with fried chicken, stewed
thicken, baked chicken and winding
up with every conceivable order of
pie, custard, and cake. In some way
the viands rapidly vanished, and Rev.
Edwards allowed a half hour then
for social recreation, and for folks to
recover from any Indiscretions in
Puro of Sunday School.
When the meeting re-assembled
Rev. Charlie Wood, of Wadeaboro
Methodist cliurch wag Introduced and
made a talk upon "The Purpose of
the Sunday School." Mr. Wood likes
a JoKe as wen as any .weuiuuioi
preacher, and his thoughts were aptly
illustrated with humorous stories
which served two purposes drove his
points home and kept the congrega
tion awake and Interested. Among i
some of the good things he said were
these: "The Sunday school must And
a way to make religion a natural
thing." "Each generation must find
Cod for itself, and learn the language
of God for themselves. Faith Is a
thing you believe in enough to do
something about." And now comes a

Monroe. 11. F. I).. May 5. The J
Wesley Chapel high school closed a'
most successful term last week. The I
iweuiiem annual coimuenceiuent was
held, beginning Friday evening. April
Friday evening the declamation and
recitation .. contests were held, in
which six boys and six girls of the
;high school participated. Mr. Ed
ward Helms won the declaimer's med
al, his declamation being "Beyond the
Alps Lies Italy." Miss Katherine
Moore won the reciter's medal with
the recitation. "The Soul of the Vio
lin." Saturday morning, the class exer
cises were held, which were thorough
ly enjoyed by all present. The class
was the largest in several years, hav
ing ten members this year. The fol
lowing received diplomas: Martha
Louise Secrest, Mary Elsie Price.
Frank Houston Hawfield. Curtis
Price, Faye Eulalia Price, William
Carver House, Mary Jean Drasswell.
Julian Carr Price, Faye Purser and
Essie Mae Keziah.
Saturday afternon the medals were
awarded by Prof. R. L. Patrick and
diplomas delivered by Prof. Ray Fun
derburk, after which Dr. C. C. Weav
er of Monroe delivered a most help
ful and Inspiring address.
Saturday evenlug, a play, "The
Thread of Destiny," was given by the
high school. The play was rendered
with great success, under the splendid
directions of the assistant principal.
Miss Margaret Faulkner. The house
was full and overflowing and every
one enjoyed It very much.
Sunday afternoon. Rev. Braxton
Craig, preached the baccalaureate
sermon, which ended the commence
ment. The school regrets very much to
have Its principal. Prof. L. A. Price,
leave them this year. He has been
the head of the school for the past
four years, and during this time he
has had the respect and confidence ot
the students and the entire commu
nity. The school has progressed rap
Idly under his management. It was
quite a disappointment when he re
fused to accept the position for an
other year. We cheerfully recom
