Pleasant Hill Items
Everybody is busy picking cotton and gathering corn. The time of the year has come when the farmer can reap the benefits of his labor, and it is a great blessing when one realizes that the farmers are so fortunate this year in breaking the record with such fine crops. The writer knows just as well as anyone how to appreciate a good crop, as my occupation is- well, you needn’t guess, its farming.
The meeting closed at Pleasant Hill last Sunday night. Everyone was pleased with the success of the meeting and there is no doubt but what the preacher went home rejoicing as he had the pleasure of baptizing four young people. The baptizing took place near the Ramsey Betts crossing on Blue; the candidates for baptism were: Miss Myrtle McGrew, Miss Bell Hunter, Miss Minnie Signer, and Mr. Bud Damron. Three other candidates, from Pirtle, were baptized at the same location. Both churches were of the same denomination and it was a pleasure to meet together, though neither church knew it was the intention of the other to be there.
Last Saturday was picnic day at Armstrong. I am sure this picnic has not been surpassed by another picnic at that place. A large crowd of Pleasant Hill people attended. The most important event of the day seemed to be the socialists speaking, Rev. Barnes, J. W. S. Kennedy and M. C. Carter. These three took turns about speaking and the writer was informed that the speaking had been carried on that way both days of the picnic.
E. K. Freeman went to Caddo on a big bale of cotton last Monday.
I. W. Damron made a business trip to Caddo last Monday.
