Several additions to the church

expected that a number of others,
will unite with the church either by|e
profession of faith or by letter at an ;T
early date. An impressive baptismal 1 1
service for babies was held at the |]
Sunday morning hour of worship.
A special feature of the meetings
was the splendid response given the
pastor in his call at each service for
the numheir of chapters in the Bible
that had been read and for those who
had prayed since last meeting to

(gratifying, thereby evidencing the

to play gold on the local course dm-- }
ing the two weeks from April 15 to |

THE M'INTOSH SALE
Much interest is being taken in the
"Farewell Sale," now going on at the
Mclr.tosh Variety Store. Mr. J. B. S.
Mcintosh, owner of the popillar store,
is planning to relinquish active man
agement of the store, and devote his
time to hij desk work, which has
grown into an extensive business. Mr.
Mcintosh is recognized as one of the
outstanding merchants in his line
throughout the Southwest, and manu
facturers not only in America, but
in the Old Country as well, are very
fond of the Brevard merchant, and
it is said send him many very valuable
items which he can sell at prices away
under that asked for the same articks
in regular arts stores, even of New
York City. /
For some time Mr. Mcintosh has
suffered from an injury to his arm
and friends have urged him to i
take life more easily. At last he has
consented to heed their advice, and is
conducting the sale in order to get
his affairs in shape to turn over to
another for management.
People who have attended the sale
have been heard to express surprise
at being enabled to purchase goods
at the prices prevailing at Mcintosh's
during this sale.
WHO HELPED THEM
On behalf of the Woman's Bureau
we wish to thank all who helped to
make the Children's Bazaar a suc
cess either by work or donations.
The splendid spirit of cooperation
was most appreciated.
In this event, men, women and chil
dren all worked together for the good
of the community.
The sum of $352.16 was raised
from the Bazaar which will be spent
towards beautifying the Grammar
Grade and Primary School grounds.
With the sale of several more art
icles we hope to reach $400.00
