Saturday, the 28th inst., Rev. Mr.
Frazier and Rev. M. A. Williams or
ganized a Presbyterian church hero.
They have twenty-two or twenty-three
members. Messrs. Goodchild and
Grubbe, Sr., were elected Elders, and
Messrs. McCall, Goodchild and Walk

Sabbath, at which time Rev. Mr. Fra

Again the undersigned is coreced
by a sense of his high duty as a chron

of our friends, who were young and

Miss Josie Nail were united in your

They are sadly
missed in our social circle. They have
gone to Linkville to reside. We ten
der our congratulations and hope that
their “union may prove a blessing to
them and many others.”

Messrs. Ro! ph, Prentice, Eubanks

Such reports as this could often be
made. They are not brown stone edi
fices, but substantial cottage homes,
each in a “green garden spot.” Our
Ashland fathers seem to have the true
American ideas of home and education.
They regard the comfort, beauty and
attractiveness of their dwellings as
objects worthy of their most assiduous
care ; and make the thorough, practi
cal education of their children their
continuous endeavor. P ilot R ock .
