BROOKS.
Rev. Frank Dunn, of Griffin, delivered a very interesting temperence lecture to a full house at the Christian church Monday night.
Mr. Bud Kenady, of near Griffin, died very suddenly Sunday afternoon, and was buried at Digby Tuesday morning. We did not learn any of the particulars.
The farmers through this section are very busy picking cotton and saving hay. Both crops are seriously cut off on account of the drought.
There is considerable sickness through this section at present. Mr. G. W. Rivers and Emory Cobb have been confined to their beds for several days with fever and Mr. Bob Harwell and wife are having chills and fever. We hope they may all be up soon.
Rev. Dameron, of Griffin, filled his appointment at the Baptist church Sunday morning and at night and baptised those who joined the church at the protracted meeting at Morgan's Mill Sunday afternoon at 3:30.
Dr. H. F. McManus and family returned home Sunday after a two weeks stay with relatives in Charlotte, N.C. He says with all the other good things, they killed for him the fatted calf.
Sheriff Brown was in our midst a short while Saturday.
Mrs. J. G. Posey and grandaughter, Florence Stephens, spent two days last week in Bremen, Ga., visiting her daughter, Mrs. W. F. Matthews.
Mr. B. H. Scott made a business trip to Fayetteville Monday.
What has become of "Primus"? We haven't heard from him since blackberries and watermelons got ripe.
