only to that of the great Hilly Sun

called the "Hilly Sunday of the
South." Mr. Ilrown Is comparatively
a young man who Is blessed with
one of those ultra-strong and pleas-
ant personalities that enables him to
sway people en masse. The natural
ability of tho man turned Into good

he Is engaged makes him a wonder-
ful power for good and he will do
this community good lots of good.
