A musical was enjoyed at the Acie PORTER's home Sunday night. Musicians were Sylvester LUTE and Paul WALLS of Corning and Henry BROWN, White.

Several from this community attended the Sunday school rally at Corning Baptist Church, Sunday evening and enjoyed the sermon conducted by Elder WILLIAMS. We congratulate Corning Baptists on their new church building and especially died we enjoy the new pipe organ, played by Mr. BUTLER.
