THE WINNSBORO PUBLIC
Winnsboro has always prided itself
on being a center of culture and re
finerent. Nothing shows up a com
munity so much as the books that it
reads. Is it possible that Winnsboro
is not a reading public! The Winns
boro Public Library is about to fall
through for lack of funds. Not a
dozen people have become subscribers.
The subscription which is only three
dollars a year need not be paid all
at once. If you wish it may be paid
in monthly installments, of twenty
five cents. ,You can join for four
months by paying a dollar. We feel
sure that it is only because the pub
lics attention has not been called to
it that they have not become members
before. Come out and join the library.

MEETING AT BAPTIST CHURCH.
During the past ten days, ending
Wednesday night oI. this week Rev.
F. A. Lamoreax, pastor-evangelist,
has been assisting the pastor, Rev.
John Bomar, in a series of evange
In spite of the very inclement
weather, the services have been well
The messages of Rev. Mr. Lamor
aux have been unique for evangelis
tic services. At least they have been
different from the usual evangelistic
effort. Throughout the entire ten
days Mr. Lamoraux has been facing
fearlessly and courageously the
questions of sin and salvation. He
has asked no one to accept his word
for the authority of the messages
which he brought, but rather he has
freely and earnestly relied upon the
Bible to teach the truth which he de
clared. He has been true to the New
Testament through'out in bringing
the revelations regarding sin and the
plan of salvation. The services have
been intensely interesting and we
venture to say that those who follow
ed him through the ten days know
what sin is, what it does, the remedy
for sin, how obtained, and what that
remedy does for a man who accepts
it. He left his hearers in possession
of some valuable and unmistakable
knowledge about life here and here
after. His work was that kind which
shall continue to bear fruit in lives
of individuals and in the church. In
tensely spiritual himself, he has led
others into the same hallowed pres
ence of God, and left them with a
sweet benediction upon their lives.
A wedding of much interest to a
wide circle of friends throughout the
state was solemnized on Wednesday
