The Good Samaritans.
The State Grand Lodge, No. 4, of
the Independent Order of Good Sa
maritans and Daughters of Samaria in
America, met in the city of Beaufort In
1917. It was at that Grand Lodge ses
sion that they voted to purchase in
Columbia that valuable piece of prop
erty on the south side of Washington
street, which was built and owned
formerly by Tom Jackson, the black
smith. The price paid for this valu
able property was $17,500, and it was
handled by the L. A. Hawkins real
The writer visited Mr. Hawkins' of
fice on Washington street a few days
ago and he showed me the bond and
mortgage, the same being duly satis
fied in the clerk of court's office at
the court house. The Good Samari
tans wiped out this debt in three
years, and they deserve to be congrat
ulated for their magnificent achieve
ment. The grand officers who led the
Order on to victory are. Mr. T. W.
Brown, Worthy Grand Chief; Mr. D.
S. Green is the Grand Secretary, and
Mr. A. Hyman Treasurer.
The building is a substantial brick
building with three stores on the
ground floor, and eleven rooms up
stairs. I understand that the owners
of the property contemplate remodel
ing the building later and putting on
another story. It now has a rental
value of $180.00 per month, and the
Hawkins Agency has the building in
charge, and collects the rent. At
present the headquarters of the Order
is in Charleston, but when the build
ing is remodeled, their general offices
may be returned to Columbia.
On the invitation of the authorities
of Benedict college the Interdenomina
tional Ministers' ?nionheld a session
last Tuesday in the library building.
Rev. D. F. Thompson, the president,
presided, and Rev. J. F. ?reen read
the minutes. President B. W. Valen
tine, of Benedict, in a few remarks,
welcomed the union to the college,
and asked them to come any time they
could make it convenient. The pas
tors of the city who constitute the
union were there in full force. Mr. A.
Charles L. Arbouin, presidnet of the
Union of Benedict College, composed
of theological students, also spoke
words of welcome to the city union,
rhe Dean of the Theological Depart
ment, too, made us welcome. His
name is the Rev. Mr. C. B. Antisdel.
The preacher for the day was the
Rev. H. M. Moore, D. D., the .pastor
of Second Calvary Baptist Church.
His text was : "For I am not ashamed
of the gospel of Christ, for it is the
power of God unto salvation to every
one that believe?l.,, '
The preacher also dwelt upon the
preceding verse at length. The ser
mon was able, instructive and spirit
ual. Dr. Moore is one of the brightest
jewels Benedict has sent out. He is
an honor to his alma mater. There is
a bright future before him.
Benedict has just closed the exer
cises of her week of prayer. Dr.
Moore conducted them, preaching tc
the faculty and students twice a day.
Several students made a decision to
become disciples of - the Master, and
to follow Him.
The Theological Department.
The writer remembers very wel)
when this department had only one
' eacher, and just a handful of sta
dents, who were preparing themselves
for the ministry, but on Tuesday I was
amazed at what I saw. That large
room in the library and the hall way
were packed with young ministers. 11
does seem to me that the handful has
become a large company. There an
more or less 50 or 60 theological stu
dents in Benedict. The crowd was sc
great until they had to* bring in extn
seats. The faculty has increased front
one prof?ssor to four. They are: Rev
T. G. Brownson, Rev. C. B. Antisdel
Rev. D. F. Thompson and Rev. R,
Lee. The last named gentleman has
been connected with this department
for several years, and its rapid growti
to its prsent large proportions is due
more to Dr. R. F. Lee than to anj
other one person. He spends his va
cations advertising this departmen
and in persuading young men who an
looking toward the ministry to com<
to Benedict and study, and they hav<
come in larger number than ever
They are doing a great work.

Dunbar?In sad but loving memory of
' my devoted husband, Rev. A. P. Dun
bar, who departed into eternal rest
February 8, 1916, five years ago.
The month of February again is here,
It was a bitter <pain, a^ shock severe,
The saddest to me of all the year;
To part with one I loved, so dear.
Oh! the memory of that night,
As I stood with breaking heart;
Seeing the one I loved so dearly,
Pierced by death's most cruel dart.
Long, dreary months you tore in pain,
To seek for ease was all in vain;
But God, who knoweth all things best,
Eased your pain and gave you rest.
