to conduct a week's revival at

sistance to the pastor by helping
to advertise the meeting at great
expense also he put bath of his
cars at our disposal. I spent all
the week in the nice parsonage
of the past >r. Including my In
troductory sermon on my first;
visiti prerched seven sermons'
and the remit of my work was;
the addition of 60 persons to the'
church. One thing that appear-j
ed strange to a number of people
was the weather condition. For
four evenings it rained at 6
o'clock and it would clear so the
people could get to church.

everybody j can see now. You
could not see the comet nor its
tail without a glass.
Our meeting had the good will
of the white citizens and they
gave large space in Daily Item to
tell of the iwonderful work that
was being jwrought by the Holy

ments of his death. His funeral
was largely attended. The body

was full of inspiration seemingly
to all who attended. The sisters
seemed deeply concerned and
interested in the raising of funds
for the education of the young
people Well done Sisters may
other Associational Fields follow
your gooci example. Rev. G. W.
Cherry, that untiring and zealous
worker for his people on his way
through Dunbartonto the sister's
meeting was liberally donated by
the whites of this town, who as
serts that the esteem they hold
for this man of God prompted
them to give liberally. Rev.
Cherry stands high in the esti
mation of both white and black.
The sisters raised over $161 for
educational purposes. Let me
tell you Rev. Mabry with his
staff of united ministers is doing
a great work for our race. The
sisters of the Four Mile Field
have also organized a Sisters'
Auxiliary Union for t* d9^^^^

Mr, Abrams at once; for while Atlanta^ a very large city and can
easily accomodate the thousands who #11 attend this the greatest
annual Negro gathering in this counjfe, preparation has to be
made for their entertainment in keepi?? with the number expect

The Rev. Richard Carroll is
still suffering with high blood
pressure to a dangerous degree.
He has been spending the most
of the year among his special
friends of all denominations but
preaching very little, He has
just returned from a trip to Ben
nett8ville where he held services
for the Rev. J. J. Harrison at
Saw Mill Baptist Church on the
first Sunday. He states that
Rev. Mr. Harrison is very popu
lar with his big congregation at
Saw Mill. They are orderly and
On the same afternoon, Rev.
Carroll served the Level Green
Methodist Church, of which Mr.
Jonas Thomas is a trustee and
steward. He had great crowds
at both meetings.
Rev. Carroll was the guest for
nearly a week, of Mr. Jonas
Thomas in his home near Ben
nettsville. Mr. Thomas will be
in Columbia this week and spend
some time with Rev. Carroll and
therf they will leave for a trip in
the Piedmont section of the
State and may endup by taking
a trip te Battle Creek, Michif an.
They will spend some time on
the farm of Mrs. Carroll's broth
er Mr. A. L. McDaniel near
Laurens. They will be supplied
daily with Davis' spring water.

fine sermon both morning and
night last Sunday.
Prof. W. D. Prince of Morris
College worshipped with us Sun
day all day. He represented
Morris Coliege and its work at
the morning service. A liberal
after collection was given him
for the school. In the evening,
Prof. Prince addressed the B. Y.
P. U. at which time he surpassed
his morning* talk.
Dr. Moore will leave for Ashe
ville on his vacation next week.
Aside from many personal do
nations by members in apprecia
tion for his first year's service to
the church, the officers autho
rized the treasurer to give him a
check for $75.00 for expense
money while on his vacation with
the understanding that if that a
mountdid not meet his require
ments, he must notify the officers
at the instance of which more
money will be forth coming.
This mildly bespeaks the high
terms in which pastor Moore is
held by his members.
The church is in fine condition
from every angle and the mem
bers and friends are singing the
praises of pastor Moore for rais
ing more money in one year than
any pastor that preceeded him in
the same length of time.
A correction : A typegraphical
error appeared in our Anniver
sary mention last week which
made the amount of money rais
ed during the week $25.50. The
amount raised was $205.50 and
others who were hot able to make
their contributions are paying up.
