Like all business concerns, last week

it was ours to use our "carving knife"

for the year's work that lies before
Sorry, but The Indicator will not
visit many this year that it did visit
last year. But we are glad to Bay
that many new ones are being entered
on our list to take their places.
We solicit the co-operation of each
of our subscribers thiB year more earn
estly than ever. No better friend has
any payer than the one who will pay
promptly for the same and encourage
others to do likewise. And no worse
enemy has a paper than the one who
will receive a paper year in and year
out and never pay for it unless he is
asked in person to do so when he hap
pens to Bee 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
the publishing of these publications
were so much in excess to the returnp
from advertising and subscriptions.
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, be 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 ls doing but
one who visits this institution and in
spects it. Hundreds of patients from
all parts of the State 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 cares
of the kind nurses. It can be said to
the credit of thin hospital that it has
more registered nurses throughout the
State than any other hospital in the
State and that her nurses meet the
examination tests with success.
This hospital stands as a monument
of the great accomplishments of Mrs.
L. J. Rhodes, the owner. Not only
Mrs. Rhodes but 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 ault and we
have not lbv slightest idea thal they
cannot be so arranged.
THE ROYAL THEATRE.
From all reports afloat in the city,
something is radically wrong with the
ownership and,, inanagement of The
Royal Theatre, ,also the Lincoln,

The information comes to us that

ay such must not and will not be up

rate any and all of Us machinery, and

parents through hard toil and the most

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 bas
been lifted and our forefathers weat
forth with songs of praise. Marvelous
has been the upward progress of our
people, too numerous indeed, to men- ]
tion here. We proudly boaBt In swell

bpistroufi over our educatlonail ad

in&titution of permanent duration. This
institution has 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 is, all other institutions aiming
?.t the uplift and bettering of humanity
owe- to the church their exhalted ideas.
The questions of vast importance
are, who were the prime promoters of
these organizations? What were the
circumstances under which. this and
that church were erected? These are
facts essential to the history of any
denomination. How many Baptist
churches in the State can furnish such
data from their church records.
The shame is these men who wrought |
so nobly have about been forgotten.

these young pastors to boast of their
present accomplishments. Wc arc but

DR. N. A. JENKINS,
Alter practicing lor twelve yearaf/to* have found the field of medi
cine HO broad that it is necessary to limit our practice along certain
lines in order to do the best work. While we do a very limited
amount ef general practice, we are trying to' confine our work
almost entirely to office practice. We have made a specialty of
Female Diseases, Diseases of the Throat, Removal of Tonsils and
Adenoids, Stomach Trouble, Disease of the Chest and Joints, Re
moval of Ingrowing Nails and New Growths, and all kinda of office work.
We find that it these ailments are corrected before they go too long, it
will save many patients from hospital op?rations.

These men have doubtless done a
work that could hardly be accomplish
ed by us and to their sainted memory
we owe our all as a denomination.
Shall we forget them?
One year ago, February 3d, my dear
sister, Mrs. Julia A. Kenner, of Ridge
Springs, passed into that great be
yond, where pains and Bufferings are
felt no more. Even though the
months are gliding into years, her
presence is sorely misBed, 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 sister, 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 ber thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in the grave below ;
Thou no more wilt join our number,
Thou no more our Bongs 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.
