of that justly popular attraction
annpuhces an entire new produc
tion, keeping only the title and
that clever comedian, Salem Tutt
Whitney and his able companion
in the production of continuous
laughs, Homer Tutt, and of
course, a chorus of dark-skinned
beauties in keeping with the well
established policy of having the
niftiest chorus of any musical
show en tour. The scenic pro
duction is new and more elabo
rate than ever, fhe costumes are
superb creations of a master
mind, and the story is built to
display the best abilities of the
army of entertainers with that
show. ! The music is by T. L.
CorwelJ, whose work is well

more firmly established than

Down at the Union Baptist
church a few nights ago, the
members tendered a reception to
Mrs. Lilla B. Hall, the charming,
vivacious wife of the Rev. Dr.R,
B Hall, the wide-awake and
justly popular pastor of that
church. Quite a crowd had as
sembled. After remarks suited
to thc occasion, by Deacon Wil
son and Mrs. Fields, Prof. John
R. Wilson, formally presented
Mrs. Hall to the waiting friends.
It was the wife of their own es
teemed pastor. Mrs. Hall was
received and treated as such.
The delicacies which caused the
tables to groan were too numer
ous to mention. In the short ad
dress Mrs, Hall made, acknowl
edging courtesies received she
gave additional evidence of her
superb, innate refinement and
charming manners. She may
well be regarded as a distinctive
addition to Columbia's colored
religious and social life.

The season of Lent has cast a
gloom over social affairs, but
still there were a few small en
tertainments both this week and
last. Miss Jackson of Asheville,
and Mrs. Robert Jeffers, who

on Friday evening. Mrs. Vin
cent serbed an elaborate buffet

Mrs. Jeffers, Miss Sylvia Pryor
and Miss Daisy Jackson and
Messrs. Monroe Lindsey and E.

MADAM BOOKER READS
AT SIDNEY PARK.
Columbia has seldom had the
pleasure of hearing a reader of
the calibre o f Madam Day se
Booker, who gave a recital at
Sidney Park church iast Wednes
day evening. The four selec
tions that the reader gave show
ed her versatility and were as
The Blacksmith's Story, Dun
bar's Encouragement, a selection
depicting a little mischievous
girl, and the dramatic poem of.
Itaiian life called the Confession
al, The histrionic ability dis
playeP by Madam Booker was
markedly apparent in each selec
tion. Perhaps her Negro dialect
did not always ring true but any
deficiency along this line was
more than made up by the de
lightfully humorous activity.
In the "Confessional," the
character Nina runs the gamut
of the emotions, love, jealousy,
hatred, fear, revenge, contrition
all of which the artist portrayed
most convincingly. Mrs. Jeffers
assisted by Miss Daisy Jackson
and Dr. Henry Hardy of Spar
tan burg rendered several musi
cal numbers that received hearty
SPECIAL SERVICES AT
Last Sunday was a memorable
day for Wesley's congregation
and friends, because of the two
interesting and unusual services,
that were held in the beautiful
edifice on Gervais street.
In the morning Rev. C. C.
Scott, the pastor, preached a spe
cial sermon, the theme of which
was "Housebuilding and House
keeping" based on the text "Set
thine house in order, for thou
shalt die and not live," II Kings
20-1. The sermon was replete
with wholesome advice presente*
with the literary finish for which
the discourses of Rev, Scott are
noted. Prof. F II- Thomas had
charge of the music, which state
ment is sufficient to convince one
of the excellence of that part of
At night an unusually large
congregation, consisting of rep
resentatives of all denominations
was present. Among the minis
ters taking part were Revs. VV.
D. King, J. M. Johnson* A. P.
Hill, I. Keitt and John Simmons
o f C amden. Speaker M. L.
Smith failed to appear, hut in
lieu of him, ?Mrs, Dayse Hooker
made the princiyal address. rl his
lady has been heard so often in
lectures and readings during the
past three weeks that.it is really
superfluous to speok in terms of
praise of her masterful discourse
last Sunday night. It was the
topic of conversation in Columbia
next morning. The offering for
the day amounted to $?M. A
worn as to Rev. Scott. During
his incumbency as pastor of Wes
ley M. E. church, the attendance
has more than trebled. Perhaps
this may be accounted for, in
that this gentleman is so well
knfiwn in this community partic
ularly to the Columb-'ans of an
elder day and their descendants.
Widely read, and broad in views,

Neqt Sunday will be a great
day also. Rev. C. C. Jacobs

Burn That Letter"
Prof. J. D- Baldwin departed from this world a few
weeks ago and by his death his friends feel a great loss,
but we feel our loss is his gain.
His place is vacant in his home
Which never can be filled,
His smiling face we see no more
Until we meet on the golden shore.
We know thou art peacefully sleeping,
Abel, sleep and take thy rest.
We loved thee dear,
But Jesus loved the best.
Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in thy grave so low,
Thou no more will join our number,
Thou no more our sorrow know.
Dearest friend you have left us here
Thy loss we deeply feel,
But 'tis God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet you
When our work on earth is done.
Then in heaven with joy to greet you,
And with Jesus forever dwell.
