advocated the use of a cotton
covering for bales of cotton in

ground that it would not only be

it would be a means of consuming

Fite Third Annual Session of the
Woman's Missionary Union
Held at Bold Spring.
The third anuual meeting of the
Woman's Missionary TJnioD cou
yened at Bold Springs Wednes
day, August 28th. The two previ
DUS meetings of this body have
been held in May^ but for various
reasons it has been decided to
have the meeting nearer the time
of the Edgefield association
About fifty delegatos, and a num
ber of visitors were present, repre
seuting nineteen societies, circles
and bauds. There are now thirty
societies in the Edgefield associa
tion and every one has coatribu
ted to missions during the yea?
The devotional exercises for the
morning and afternoon session
were conducted by Mrs. L. F
Dorn, of Parksville, and Mrs. J
T. Littlejohn of Red Hill. The
address of welcome was made by
Mrs. P. P. Rush, of Bold Springs

delegates by Miss Jena ie Patti
The annual report of the Su
perin tendent, recommended the
raising of one thousand . dollars
during the coming year for mis
sions, that being not a great
amount larger than was contribu
ted this year, more tban eight
hundred dollars having been
raised for missions. The societies
hope to contribute next year $500
to Foreign missions, enough for
the support of a missionary, $250
to State missions for the support
of Misa Bramfield besides paying
the apportioned amount for Home
missions and the other objects
v\hich Our denomination fosters
Miss Gertrude Bramfield, State
missionary, of the women of
the Edgefield association, was
present. and also Miss H. H.
Wright, associated with Mis6
Bramfield in the work in Horse
Creek Valley. Both of these mis
sionaries who are well known and
loved by the women of Edgefield
association, made interesting
and practical talks on the mission
study classes, the school at El
Paso Texas to be built by the
Sunbeam Societies of the South,
chapel at Yingtak China, the
Training school now being es
tablished by the Woman's Mis
sionary Union at Louisville, Ky.,
and other subjects of interest.

S An 6xc<?, ,^>per on "The
value of a 'oman's Mission So
ciety to the loSal church" was
prepared and read by Mrs. F. P
Rush. Mrs. Rush h?.s been the
leading spirit in the Womau's
work at Bold Springs, and her
paper was a resume of years of
experience in this direction.
A paper on "Why should a
Woman's Mission Society be
specially interested in missions"
was read in her own forceful way
by Mrs. W; E. Lott cf Edgefi;

It is said that "the proof of the
pudding is in tho eating." It is
just as true that the most practi
cal, tangible evidence of hospi
tality is to be seen at the dinner
hour. When the recess hour ar
rived at Bold Spring in truth a
feast ot good things was laid out
before the delegates and visitors.
On being asked by a lady who did
not attend, if the delegates enjoy
sd this repast? A good delegate
replied "Ol we had a magnificent
dinner." The social hour enjoy
ad at this time, was shared also
by all the brethren of Bold Spring.
Having excluded them from the
feast of soul prepared for this oe
basion, it was thought but due
them to receive a cordial invita
tion at the meal hour.
While the ladies' meeting was
in session, the'brethren conducted
another in the Behool nearby, with
Rev. J. E. Johnston in charge.
At 2 o'clock the meeting was
called to order, and a paper writ
ten by Mrs. M. B. Clinkecales, of
Due West, on "Consecration" was
read by Miss Jennie Pattison. It
was much regretted that Mrs.
Clinkscale8 could not be present.
James Taylor, a student of the
S. C. C. I. and a son of Rev. J. J.
Taylor of Brazil, who was boru in
that country and lived there till
be came to our institution a year
ago, was present, and spoke to the
nnion about the work in Brazil,
and sang in Portuguese the hymn,
"Standup, Stand up for Jesus."
This portion of the program was
specially enjoyed, and at the re
quest of tha brethren, tb.6y were
admitted tc the church.

Prevalen cy of Iv i ?In ey Disease
Most'people do not realize the alarm
ing increase and remarkable prevalency
of kidney disease.
jorders are the
' diseases that prc
vail, they are
almost the last
patient and phy
sicians, who con
m?h.doctoring the effects, while the oriy
iiuil disease undermines the system.
What To Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilnier's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy,
fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder
and every* part of the urinary passage.
It corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant ne
cessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up man}
times during the night. The mild and
the extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root
is soon realized. It stands the highest
for its wonderful cures of the most dis
tressing cases. If you need a medicine
you should "have the best. Sold by drug
gists in fifty-cent and one-dollar sizes.
