to sleep in Concord Presbyterian Cem

of beautiful spring flowers, in the
presence of a large number of rela
tives, friends and former pupils. For
some time he had been in declining
health, but seemed as well as usual
on the morning of the 27th. When
called to dinner he was not in his
accustomed chair on the porch neith
er in his room, when search was be
gun, he was found lying dead at the
foot of the steps where he had b-en
seen sitting a short while before.
Though the De,ath Angel cam: smL
denly and unexpectedly we feel s'
that he was p-)epared to go. He had
expressed the wish to die sud:en l::
and be spared pr2longed sulerb1
and God granted his desire.
Had he lIved until May 7th, he
would have been 79 years of age.
Over forty of these years had bee:
spent in teaching the youth of the
land. MIany who read these lines all
over the State will say, "I went to
school to him". "I never began to
to learn until he taught me how."
With a splendid knowledge of Greek,
Latin and mathematics he was a
teacher of the old type. Educated at
the South Caolina College, he de
termined to be a doctor, but his
health failed and he had to come
home the first year at Charleston. The
war between the states soon began
and he volunteered for service in

later transferred to the cavalry, 4th
Regiment, CompaDrny V"'" under Capt.
A. Barber. Here he served faith-ful

turned to help build up the broken
fortunes of home and State.
Being of a modest, retiring nature,
he never married. Since quitting thc
teaching pr.:fession he made his home
with his niece, Ars. W. 1. Harvey.

a loving and beloved daughter.
The f-orty-six counties in South
Carolina are in an "Attendance Con
test" for the approaching State Sun
dzy School Convention at Winthrcp
College, Rock Hill, June 8- 9-10, and
the President of each County Sunday
School Association has been appoint
ed as the Director of the Attendance
Contest campaign in that county, as
sisted by the County Secretary and
the District presidents, of whom
there are 219 in the State.
The contest is on a proportionate -
basis, it is said, the number of reg
* istered delegates from each county
being multiplied by the railroad dis-.
tance of the county seat from the
Convention, so as to make it fair for
all counties, both those near-by and
those at a distance. There are no
restrictions as to attendance. The
convention. .it is said, is a popular
meeting and not a strictly delegated
body. Consequently, everyone who
wishes to do so is invited to attend.
All who attend and register are ac
cepted as delegates; only those who
do register count in attendance con
test. A beautiful banner will be pub..
licly presented to the county having
the largest registered attendance in
portion to the distance traveled.
The Committee appointed to have
charge of working up the attendance
from Fairfield County is as follows:
Rev. G. C. Gibson, Winnsbor; Miss
Nan Neil, Winnsboro; J. B. Fra..
zer, Blairs; B. H. Yarborough, Jen
kinsvile; J. E. Bruce, Winnsboro; A.
T. Moore, Ridgeway.

School Association especially i'nvites
you to attend and take part in the ap

Rock Hill, June 8-9-10.
The success of the Sunday School
work in the church, in the community
and in our State, depends upon our
pastors. We have therefore tried to
prepare such a program for this con
vention as will be of interest to the
pastors and of help to the superin
tendents and teachers, as they co
operate with their pastors in the
work of the Sunday School.
We trust you will do three things:
(1) Come to the Convention your-.
(2) See that it is announced at

report to the Southern Baptist Con

Feeling the need of conserving'the
spiritual interests of the people as
well as the financial aspect o the

ional organizations, all the 27,000 10
:al Baptist churches in the South in a
arger evangelistic effort during the
iext twelve months, the aim being to
nduce as many individual members of
e churches as possible to win at least
ne soul to Christ during the new year.
Reports to the convention showed that
here were 173495 persons received
nto the local Baptist churches by bap
lsm during the past year, and a much1
arger number will be sought during
