A number of lady delegates from this city attended the District convention of the Missionary society at Madison on Friday last. Those in attendance pronounced it one of the most interesting and socially delightful meet that the society has ever held. One very attractive and very pleasant feature of the occasion was the elegant dinner served that was prepared by the best housekeepers of Madison and surround country. This much enjoyed repast was served by a bevy of lovely girls under the special direction of two of Madison’s premium housekeepers, Mesdames Mrs. W. S. Russell, and James Cain. The tables were exquisitely set in dainty embroideries and vases of the favorite Autumn blossoms, Golden Rod and Black-eyed Susan's and fresh greens and other attractive accessories, making an indelible impression never to be effaced.
The next meeting will be in Huntsville, and we are sure it will prove as great a success as the one just closed.
There arrived a handsome little man at the home of Dr. and Mrs. M. R. Moorman, on Friday afternoon, in the person of a fine son, whose name we would like very much to announce, but, as yet, the proud parents have not found one suitable.
The friends of Mr. Henry Pollard did not know why, at first, his smile seemed so much broader than usual, on Thursday last, Sept. 28th 1911, but found soon, there was excellent reason, when told of the arrival the day before, of the handsome little son of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil W. Lovill. For now he is a grandpa, and never was a prouder one seen. We congratulate both parents and grandparents.
