Christ Chapel, the little church building on the farm of Miss Amy Mullins, near Falls Mills, will be dedicated Sunday. Rev. W. S. Bullard, of Bluefield, will deliver the sermon. A basket dinner on the ground and a wedding will add to the interest of the day at the dedicatory services, Robert Perdue and Miss Eliza Dunford, both of the Falls Mills neighborhood, being the contracting parties. Christ Chapel, which is an imposing little church situated on a pretty knoll overlooking the old Mullins homestead, was erected by Miss Amy Mullins at her own expense. The pastor is now paid by her and she is superintendent of Sunday school conducted there. The establishing of this church edifice in a remote section is very much appreciated by the country people living in the neighborhood and Miss Mullins is loved by them for her philanthropic spirit in providing the new church.
