On Sunday Next.
A spiritual and intellectual
feast is in store for the people of
this vicinity on Sunday next. It
marks the beginning of the annual
commencement of the South Car
olina Co-Educational Justitute.
In the forenoon, begiuning prompt
ly at ll- o'clock, the Rev. John
Bass Shelton, who ranks among
the most prominent ministers in
the Baptist denomination in South
Carolina, and pastor of the First
Baptist church of Chester, will
preach the baccalaureate sermon.
In the afternoon at 5 o'clock there
will be a mass meeting in the
college auditorium of all of the
Sunday schools of tbe town. Short
addresses will be made by leading
representatives of the several de
nominations. "In the evening at
the usual hour for services. Rev.
A. S. Thomas, rector of the Epis
copal church at Darlington, and
one of the ablest young ministers
in the state, will deliver the annual
sermon befare the college Y. M.

honor graduate of the Citadel, class
1892, hence the gray uniforms of
our collegs boys will be an inspira
tion to him causing his mind to

he was one of "the boys in gray.''
Successful Union Meeting.
'Ihe coming together of the
members of tho seyeral churches
of a given section"at stated times,
such as the quarterly confereuces
of the Methodist church and the
union meetings of the] Baptist
church, proves very helpful to ihe
cause, especially when these occa
sions aie entered into with zest and
spirit by those in attendance. The
union meeting which met with our
Baptist church on Saturday and
Sundav 1 ast was probably the most
interesting and profitable one that
has ever been held within the
bounds of the Edgefield associa
tion. Every one of the eight
churches in the division was re
presented .by earnest, consecrated
Christian workers, who made .ex
cellent and very encouraging re
ports of the work, along all lines,
in their respective churches. Good
congregations, flourishing Sunday
schools and increased contribu
tions for missions and works of
benevolence were reported.
On Saturday the queries that
had boen prepared were ably dis
cussed aud all who were in atten
dance were greatly benefitted by
the uew ideas advanced and by
the experiences of others. AB
previously announced, the ledies
spread a bounteous repast of tempt
ing viands on a long table under
the shady oaks near the church,
where the delegates and others re
galed themselves at the dinner
hour on Saturday.
On Sunday morning Rey. P. P.
Bialock addressed the Sunday
school, aud Rev. G. H. Burton, in
bis earnest, and impressive man
ner, preached the missionary ser
mon, which was the very essence
of Gospel truth.
Our people were greatly delight
ed that the attendance from the
country churches was so lar^e and
only regret that it was not even
larger. Let all of the ohurcheB
send fulJ delegations to the next
union which will be held at
Stevens Creek ohurch in July.
