Sorry, but The Indicator will not
visit many this year that it did VIBU
last year. But we are glad to say'
that many new ones are being entered
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 bas
any panter 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 1B j
asked in person to 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

and every other item that went into
the publishing of these publications
were so much in excess to the returns
from advertising and subscriptions. I
The Indicator will not be suspended, |
but hereafter will pay strict attention

thoughtful enough to pay up their dues

The Good Samaritan Hospital.
Among the many prosperous busi

Samaritan Hospita!? and Training
School for Nur8es*comes in for special
No one can fully appreciate the real
good work this hospital is doing but
one who visits this institution and in
spects lt. 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 Bkill ob
tainable and the best hospital accom
modations including the tender careB
of the kind nursoB. It can be said to
the credit of this hospital that it bas
more registered nurses throughout the
State than any other hospital in the
State and that her nurseB meet the
examination tests with success.
This hospital stands as a monument
of the great accomplishments of Mrs.
L. J. Rhodes, thc 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
Baptist?, 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 nrranged to suit nn?i we
have not tb> slightest idea that they
cannot be BO arranged.

?ind reliable men among its only pat
ronage to manage this theatre and op
?rate any and all of Its machinery, and
t'rom among its patronage should come
such. Unlike the druggist, the grocer,
ur clothier, the owner of a theatre ex
clusively .for colored is at the mercy
of the colored and in which case he
must give due recognition or suffer im
parable loss. Though this condition is
being strongly discussed and actions
vlanned among those whose word
stands for something, we would ad
vise that no actions be taken until
a representative committee waits on
the owner of this theatre and allow a
fair chance to grant due considera
tlon. And if he is unwilling, then,
and not until then is the time to act.
The ministers of Columbia compos
ing this committee would, we are sure,
?et a favorable report to make, for
certainly the owner and manager are
considerate men and know what it
would mean if all colored papers, min

denomination must accept with shame.
Just fifty-eight years have passed
(since the iron heel of oppression has
been lifted and our forefathers, went

I has been the upward progress of our
people, too numerous indeed, to men

J bpiatrouis over our educational ad

[institution of permanent duration. This
institution has grown to be a world
power, and is still increasing in favor
with Ood and man. Today the church
is doing vastly more permanent and)
lasting good than all the other insti

fact is, all other institutions aiming

[ owe to the church their exhalted ideas.
The questions of vast Importance
j 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 |

Shall we forget them?
One year ago, February 3d, my dear
siBter, Mrs. Julia A. Kenner, of Ridge
Springs, passed into that great be
yond, where ipains and sufferings are
felt no more. Even though the
months are gliding into years, her
presence is sorely missed, and we
yearn constantly tor 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 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.
