Greenville, June 6.-I am al tho
Baptist State Convention, which
met in the Springfield Baptist
ehureh on Wednesday, lt is com
posed of a ("me body of men. Tho
program was too full to give satis
faction. S/%^i>!" the visitors. I
among thenif ^pid' by given but a
few minutes to speak I?) the Con
vention. Dividing my time he
tween the Convention and Till?
SOUTHERN INDICATOR subscribers,
I have been more than ordinarily
busy. As the Kev. Mr. Watkins,
the Secretary of the Convention,
says, he will forward to us for pub
lication a full account of the pro
ceedings of the Convention, I shall
omit a detailed statement of what
transpired. All the old officers
were re-elected. This is said to he
.one of the best sessions in the his
tory of the Convention. It was
also one of the best attended. The
Springfield Baptist church is a
handsome, modern brick structure,
capable of seating comfortably
about 750 people. lt bioko 1.
Thursday and Friday night-, as
though 1,000 persons were packed
Woman is becoming o,uilc a fae
tor in the I ?aptist Convention, more
so than in any of the other religious
bodies, except the Presbyterians.
( >ne can easily observe thal the
Baptists are making rapid strides
along the path Af education. The
number of scholarly as well as elo
quent men is on the increase. Dr,
Goodwin, our h<#st, appears to be
doing a splendid work in Green
^ort1?iis ent?ta inmctrt of the
^^Ponvention seem to give genera
satisfaction. The' night of inj
arrival 1 was entertained at the
home of Mr. and/Mrs. IV li. Mar
tin and had as my companions OH*
Columbia Dr. Goodwin and Deacon
Goode, of Second Calvary. Wi
talked one another lo sleep. The
next morning my long-time friends
Mr. and Mrs. "Phil" Parker, whom
I had known for 37 years, and tc
whose home 1 had been assigned,
took charge of me till 1 left. Mr.
and Mrs. Martin are excellent peo
ple, and entertained us in fine style.
Tm: Sot'TiiKRN* INDICATOR has been
going to their home regularly for
some time. No one in Greenville
can entertain better than Mr. and
Mrs. Parker and Miss Parker
Thirty-seven years ago the last of
this month, immediately after my
graduation from the South Carolina
University, with no definite plan for
my future. I went to Greenville to
find something to do. I found a
country summer school and a home
in a Baptist family among whom ?
lound life-long friends. Two years
later I became the principal of the
Greenville public school. I made il
a graded school. 1 look it willi 160
pupils. Ten years later, when I
left Greenville lo become pastor of
(h.- Silver Hill M. li. .lunch and
later principal of the Spartanburg
public school also. I U\fi two
schools, of the larger of which I
was principal, and. I ilhiik. over '?00
pupils. I wanl to speak ol four of
ibo teachers Mun of whom had
been my pupils also) whom I had
with inc there Mrs. Georgia
?ohnson, Mrs. Mamie Poole'
LMI'S. Kalie Fair-Goodwin
kalima Johnson, I knew
?cn v. hen die was ( '.em -
slie wa- one of the
-I ipi I- in I ?reenville
.oimty and one of the mosl modest
md ladylike. She has raised a
family of boys and girls. I wo of
whom, Dr. ('harlie ?obnson and
Miss lau ile lohn-.?h. have mure
i han a Slate-wide reputation. Mrs.
Mamie Poole-Sloan is ibo daughter
of Kev. Gabriel Poole. Ihe founder
and) firs! pastor of the Springfield
Itaplisl church, ll is no (lattery lo
say that she was one of the quietest
gentlest and most pinn- women I
had ever had the pleasure of being
associated with. Mrs. Sloan mill
migs in the church choir and
kalie Fair was the recognized
leader in social, educational and re
ligious malters in Greenville. I
h oc mel Inn few women like ber
anywhere. She was a horn leader.
11er uncle, win > wa- alsi > her
adopted falber, was in good circum
stances and spared nothing to give
Miss Kalie and hi- eldest daughter,
Mi-s M vi a. a ginni education and j
to lit them for social position. 1

Ix uno or what Katie said and did in i
thc Sunday School or in thc literary ?
socict\ usually went. Twice mar- i
ried, and now a widow with four 1
children, every one a credit to her,
having had to drink deep from thc
cup of sorrow, ami yet with grace !
and submission, and faith in God.
She is al hei post in thc same school
where I found her and where 1 left
her when 1 moved lo Sparlanburg.
Miss Kinma johnson is in a class
by herself. She was never fond of
male society. She loved music and
j loved her books She loved little
children, and is one of the best pri
man teachers in thc State. Kora
! time she was an inmate of my home.
I She was always a devout Christian.
She is still leaching where 1 left
her. She is in feeble health, and
I learn, has an assistant, receives
half pay, and is al liberty to stay at
Inane whenever she feels unable or
indisposed to come to school. If
? she were a while teacher the school
j authorities would retire her with an
allowance sufficient to give ber a
reasonably comfortable support.
11er salary has never been large and
I doubt seriously if she has saved
anything worth mentioning.
During my principalship in
Greenville a revival broke out in
the school, and scores of the pupils
were converted. Mrs. Georgie
lohnson was the only unconverted
teacher amone; us. She. too, got
under conviction at the school. The
three other teachers whom I have
named and one other. Miss Annie
Arnold, and myself, converted the
school into a meeting house, and
got around her and the other
mourners amone; thc larger schol
ars, and sang and prayed with
them. lt was hard work. My
? recollection is she because so sick
sin sick -that she had lo stay home
on a Friday and "got religion" on
Saturday. Sunday, when she came
to church we church folks ( W esley
M. li. church) had one of the big
gest shouts Greenville had ever
sein. Soon after that the brethren
told me I was called to preach. I
kicked like a Texas pony, but I
finally caved in. and I became a

some of the former pupils and pat
rons, and oUher ?*friends?*wht>rm I

Roosevelt, I have certainly had "a
Of-course. I had to go to see our
two Greenville correspondents. Mr.
lintier and Miss Glaseo w. Miss
Hattie is going to take a new start
in her efforts for Tin: INDICATOR,
and Mr. Butler will not be a whit
behind her. I find Tllfi SOUTHERN
INDICATOR very popular in Green
ville. Mr. Hut 1er and Miss (Mas
cow will make thc subscribers very
populous in Greenville.
This letter his been written under
difficulties I need not burden thc
readers with mentioning. 1 can
only say in the language of a young
colored gentleman of slavery days
who had gone to his young master
to have him write a love letter for
him. After the aforesaid young
boss had written about as much as
I have, he wearilv said, '"Well. Sam,
is that all?" Sam replied. "Well.

j Just the Thing for Teachers.
I The State Summer School, ad
vertisement of which appears in
another column of this paper will
be largely attended by teachers
from all portions of the state. The
State College at Orangeburg ?san
ideal place for this gathering of
teachers, being spendidly equip
ped for agricultural and vocation
al work, which will bo attractive
features of the courses outlined.
Some of the leading and most ex
perienced instructors of the state
have been invited to places on
the faculty and facilities for their
work have been provided for in
appropriations by the Legislature
and the Slater Fund. The State
Department of Education has
given its hearty endorsement to
this project, and several of the
county superintendents have sig
nified that they will not re-issue
certificates to teachers who do
not attend. The?e incentives
should largely increase the enroll
ment, and it is hoped that all
progressive teachers will make
1 arrangemeats to bc on hand when
the roll ts called on June 29th.
The school will last four weeks.
