Sorry, but The Indicator will not I
visit many this year that it did visit]
last year. But we are glad to say i
that many new ones are being entered j
on our list to take their places.
We solicit the co-operation of each
of our subscribers this year more earn
estly than ever. No better friend has j
any paper than the one who will pay
promptly for the same and encourage j
others to do likewise. And no worse
enemy has a paper than the one who j
will receive a paper year in and year
out and never pay for it unless he is
asked in person lo do so when he hap
pens to see the editor or representa
tive, and sometime never.
Newspaper statistics show that 81
newspapers and magazines were forced
to suspend publication during 1920 be
cause during the high cost of material
and every other item that went into j
the publishing of thone publications
were so much in excess to the returns
fron] advertising and subscriptions. j
The Indicator will not be suspended,
but hereafter will pay strict attention
to subscription list and without notice
suspend the paper to delinquent sub
There are some who are honest and
thoughtful enough to pay up their dues
when due, to these, he they ever so
few. The Indicator will visit.
The Good Samaritan Hospital.
Among the many prosperous busi
ness institutions hereabouts The Good
Samaritan Hospital' and Training
School for Nurses comes in for special
No one can fully appreciate the real
good work this hospital is doing bul
one who visits this institution and In
spects lt. Hundreds of patients from
all parta of the Stale enter this in
stitution in the course of the year and
are relieved of their many and varied
afflictions, by the best medical skill ob
tainable and the best hospital accom
modations including the tender cures
of the kind nurses. It can bo said to
the credit of this hospital that lt has
more registered mines throughout the
State than any other hospital in the
State and that her nurses meet the
examination tests with success.
Thh; hospita] stands as ? monument
of the great accomplishments of Mrs.
L. J. Rhodes, the owner. Not only
Mrs. Rhodes hut the womanhood of
Columbia and South Carolina in gen
eral can point to this hospital with
pride and receive new inspiration.
Information comes to The Indica
tor that Mrs. Rhodes offers the Negro
Baptists of South Carolina this well
equipped and well established hospital.
In our mind the denomination would
not and could not go wrong on accept
ing this institution if the price and
terms can be arranged to suit and we
have not thiy slightest idea that they
cannot be so arranged.
THE ROYAL THEATRE.
From all reports afloat in tho city
something is radically wrong with thi

Royal Theatre, .also the Lincoln

The information comos to us that

?lite, and while this thoatra ls wholly gi

i unjustifiable. And in our judgment
is unjustifiable and should not be!
derated. And, like many others, wei
ty such must not and will not be up
sld. There are competent, honest |
nd reliable men among its only pat
mage to manage this theatre and op
rate any and ail of ita machinery, and

lusively -for colored is at the mercy1

icing strongly discussed and actions

ise that no actions be taken until]

SHALL WE FORGET THEM?
BY DR. H. M MOORE.
"The evil that men do lives arter]
them. The good is often interred with
Too often is this really true. Judg
ing from people's general action. When;
parents through hard toil and the most]
sacrificial struggle put their children!
through school thereby placing them'
in position to live honorably then these!
aanie children forget the loving con
sideration due their parents. They|
ought bear the mark of the world'
i:ondemnation. Ii. fact, any who have
ised their opportunity in contribut
ng to the bettering of one's condi
ion ought not bc lightly esteemed and :
lever forgotten. But how to the con
: Perhaps no set of men living or have
and will ever live to whom the world
owes a greater debt of gratitude for
real godly, unselfish, unpaid, earnest
service than to that class constituting
the ministry. To say-that he is easily
forgotten, especially by Baptist, is stat
ing a well known fact which our|
denomination must accept with shame.
Just fifty-eight years have passed
Since the iron heel of oppression has
been lifted and our forefathers went
forth with songs of praise. Marvelous
has been the upward progress of our
people, too numerous indeed, to men
lion here. We proudly boast in swell
I lng acclamations that often become
hiiistrous over our educationail ad
v;incement. Our church is the only
institution of permanent duration. Thia
institution haB grown to be a world
power, and is still increasing in favor
with God and man. Today the church
is doing vastly more permanent and
lasting good than all the other insti
tutions of the world. The undisputed
fact ls. all other institutions aiming
at the uplift and bettering of humanity
owe to the church their exhalted ideas.
The questions of vast importance
are, who were th~ prime promoters ol
these organizations? What were tht
circumstances under which thiB and
that church were erected? These arc
facts essential to the history of an)
denomination. How many Baptist
churches in the State can furnish sud:
data from their church records.
The shame is these men who wrought
so nobly have about been forgotten
j Among our denomination there are lest
than one Cozen of these pioneer paB
tors active who made it possible foi
these young pastors to boast of theil
present accomplishments. We are hui
reaping where they sowed and gather
lng where they strewed. Every yourie
pastor ought forget his anniversary
if need be, and gather the scattered in
fo.iiatlon of those grand good mei
who labored, often without money an<
without price and have annual meet

cine BO broad that it ia necessary to limit our practice along certain
lines in order to do the best work. While we do a very limited
amount ef general pracUce, we are trying to' confine our work
almost entirely to office practice. We hav.e made a specialty of
Female Diseases, Diseases of the Throat, Removal of Tonsils and
Adenoids, Stomach Trouble, Disease of the Chest and Joints. Re

will save many patients from hospital op?rations.

One year ago, February 3d, my dear
sister, Mrs. Julia. A. Kenner, of Ridge
Springs, passed into that great be
yond, where pains and sufferings are
felt no more. Even though the
months are gliding into years, her
presence is sorely missed, and we
yearn constantly for her, whose mem
ory still lingers with us. 'Tis hard to
think of her as gone forevermore, for
she was a loving slBter, wife, mother
and a consecrated Christian.
Sister, thou wast mild and lovely,
Gentle as the summer breeze;
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees.
Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in the grave below;
Thou no more wilt join our number,
Thou no more our songs shall
Yet again we hope to meet thee
When the day of life is fled;
Then in heaven with joy to greet thee
Where no farewell tears are shed.

Chester, S. C.
