Miss Rosenswikev Teacher of
Branson School Writes of
Trip to - Washington
Dear friends and pupils: As some,
if not all of you, know I was teach
er of the Morgan school near Cleora,
during: the .past sesi?n.
It is situated in one of the nicest
communities in the county. Every
one is so hospitable, loving and
sympathetic, and this makes one
feel at home while being there. I
am writing from experience as I
have been with them, and words
cannot express my gratitude to the
I loved my pupils as I do my
brothers and sisters, because all
seemed to think thc same by me,
and everyone tried todo their duty
* to theraseves, and towards me as a
As school has closed, vacation
. time has'-come, now some- of you
. will say, she should tell us how she
is spending her vacation: As a few
of you know, I attended the South
ern Baptist Convention, which met
in .Baltimore, May 11th to 14th.
While there I attended the Wo
man's Missionary Union, * Auxiliary
to the Souther n Baptist Convention,
which was in session at the same
time, but attending the convention
First let me tell you of Balti
more. It ranks as the 5th city in the
United States, and is the centre of
Roman Catholic doctrine, so you
who are. Baptists will realize the
situation and know how important
it was to have the Southern Baptist
Convention meet in this place.
On the 12th, a vessel of German
immigrants landed in Baltimore.
The convention was invited to the
pier the next day to see it unload,
and of course great numbers went.
. Just think of 1,400 immigrants
coming to our shore, to learn our
language, habits and customs, and
if we do not put a good model for
them to follow they will be lost.
Another thing is they come here to
learn of Christ and worship God as
-they wish; in their own land they
worship idols and hear so little of
the gospel that it does not, do them
very much good._
Every one seemed very , happy in
deed to be on laud again, as tboy
were oh water for 14 days.. They
sang many songs in their language,
and made music on violins and ac
As you all_ know, their baggage
has to be inspected as soon as they
land, and every one seemed so anx
. ions that it should be done as quick
ly as possible.
After watching this for some
time, we were allowed to go through
the vessel. It was a very large one,
being 220 feet long, and five stories
high. It will accommodate 3,000
passengers, besides officers and
The most interesting part of all
was going into the wireless tele
graph office, it being on the top or
fifth floor. Now, I think seeing this
is worth going to the convention.
. Next I took in part of the city in
one of the "Sight seeing, automo1
biles," going around Washington's
monument, in Baltimore, which was
erected by the ladies of Maryland,
and ie 164 feet high, then throu. ia
the business part of the city. We
passed th^ Court House, City Hall,
Baltimore Bargain House, Custom
House, Wholesale Market House,
then by the famous John Hopkins
Hospital, it being the largest hospi
tal in the state. Next of importance
was Druid Hill Park, which is a
very pretty place, then by St Luke's
Hospital. Now we are near the old
est house in Baltimore which is a
very ancient building, the Mount
Royal Pumping station, which
pumps water for the city. Not last
but the most beautiful place in the
city, the Eutaw Place Park, noted
for its scenery, walks and fountains,
which are clear as any crystal; not
least but last the Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad station, which faces
the Convention Hall, and the Mary
Doubtless some of your read eri
win want to know something of the
convention by this time. On Sundaj
morning - Baptist ministers from
every state preached in many of tht
churches in Baltimore. I b/-ard th
beloved and honored Dr. tieo. W.
Truitt, of Texas, who spoke with
great power to his large audience,
and Sunday night we went to hea?
Dr. E. C. Dargan, of Georgia.
During the convention w*e heard
fine addresses by Drs. Shakespear*
and Myers of London, which wen
very much enjoyed by all.

and also some foreigners who hav?

Eighteenth Anniversary of the
Founding of Connie Maxwell
The eighteenth anniversary of the
opening of Connie Maxwell Or
phanage, says the Greenwood In
dex", was observed with appropriate
exercises at the orphanage last Sun
day, May 22. There were addresses
by members of the board of trus
tees Sunday 'morning and in the
afternoon a sermon by the Rev. W.
E. Thayer of Laurens.
Here are some interesting facts
about the growth of the orphanage
compiled by Superintendent A. T.
Jamison^ whose tenth anniversary
as superintendent was observed on
that day also.
. "During recent days my mind
has been lilied with memories. Ten
years ago today my eyes first saw
Connie Maxwell Orphanage. The
picture is very distinct in my mind,
for first impressions are indelible.
The barn stood in the centre of the
grounds, on the spot now occupied
by the Maxwell building. The
shade trees were numerous, but
very small, and therefore the &]>
pearance was one of bareness.
There were no sidewalks. Boys
and girls lived in most of the dor
mitories and were equally divided,
except that girls only lived in
Durst Home and boys only at Smith
Home. Not a table in the institu
tion was supplied with linen. There
were three teachers in the school
and not a child from the Orphan
age had ever entered college. Two
hundred and thirty-three children
had been cared for up to that date,
including those that had been placed
in horner by adoption and other
wise. Most of the children were
small, but they were a healthy look
ing lot. Eight only of the tiny
tots that I found that day do I see
on our school roll today, and they
have grown "some'1 in the mean-,
time: Annie Galloway, Leta
White, Epton Sprouse, Elise Elli
son, Lena, Padgett, Bessie Smith,
Den Altman and Furman Galloway
"Some contrasts between that day
and this are notable. There were
than seven permanent buildings on
tlie--placative horned the chapel and _
are now seventeen buildings, nine
of them being homes for children.
There Were then 125 children
against 230 at present; there was
then a total population of 104,
against 254 today.
uWe were at that time spending
annually about ?7,000, against $25,
000 at present. The orphanage
then owned 5C acres of land in its
own title, while it now owns 627
acres in one tract, not counting a
large tract in another portion of tho
State now being offered for sale.
The total valuation of material
assets at that time was *34,000. It
is now at least $150,000. The Or
phanage then placed children in
family homes, lt is now an. edu
cational institution for orphan *
"The addition.5 of one kind and
another may be simply mentioned
and passed without explanation, or
emphasis, namely, a printing press
and outfit, and a monthly magazine,
a library building and more than
1000 books; three grades to the
school course, a central school
building; an office building; a laun
dry and a cannery; several cottage
homes; barns; a system of water
works; the Maxwell farm and all
"As to the changes, they have
been numerous. The increase in
cost of-support per capita is remark
able. The price paid for flour then
was ?4 a barrel. A stub'on an old
check book shows that one lot of
tlo'ur was bought just before I came
at the price of ?3.40 a barrel. Fer
tilizer cost $15 a ton, lumber 75c
per hundred feet, brick ?3.25 per
1000. Our laboring man, Nathan,
was paid $8 a month, and John
$7.50 a month. The provision ac
count the first year was ?2,500
It was a surprise and a gratifica
tion, however, to find upon recent
comparative calculations that when
allowance is made for the increase
in cost of living, and also
? or the increased number of in
mates, the per capita of our sup
port has not materially increased.
And this notwithstanding the fact
that the work is more liberal in
every respect. The principal reason
for this lies in the fact that the
farms and gardens have yielded so
Lest one should imagine that I
im silly enough to take credit for
these changes and improvements
luiing the decade I wish to go on
ecord as disclaiming any such
?'olly. The work has almost taken

Second Division Met With An
tioch. Large Attendance,
Two Able Sermons..
It was my pleasure to attend the
union meeting at Antioch on Sun
day. For eighteen years I was a
resident of that section of on** coun
ty, and I can say without hesitation
that no truer or more hospitable
people live anywhere. My only re
gret is that I can not visit them
more frequently as nothing would
give me more pleasure. I met many
of ray kinsmen,, and many of my
true friends and hundreds of ac
quaintances. There was a moment
of pain and sorrow amidst the hap
py ones to me as I looked over the
congregation. The faces of two no
ble Christians were missing. One
whose friendship I esteemed it an
honor to claim, the other a near
relative whom I loved as a sister.
I allude to Mrs. Art Brimson and
Mrs. Abney Mims. Yes, I missed
the warm grasp of the hand and the
hearty welcome that they always
extended. They were a power in the
church and in their respective com
munities and though they have
crossed over the River of Life* their,
deeds of kindness and words of
cheer will ever live and in years to
come. As I look back over my life I
shall associate among the happiest
moments of that life the eighteen
years as co-laborer with them at
Upon our arrival we found Prof.
Mellichamp addressing the Sunday
school. Prof. Mellichamp in an ex
ceedingly able manner emphasized
the importance bf attending the
Sunday school by boys and girls as
the foundation was laid upon which
to build true men and, women and
consecrated workers in the church.
Fallowing Prof. Mellichamp Prof.
Courtney spoke on "Benefit derived
from study lessons" Mr. Courtney
speaks well, and had an attentive
congregation. After Mr. Courtney
came Mr. J. D. Hughey, moderator
of the union. In well chosen words
Mr. Hughey spoke of the influence
of family prayer in the homes. The
time having arrived for the serra-gi,
Rev. P. B. Lanham delivered' a
most excellent and practical ser
mon, basing "his remarks. ? upon the
Text,God Icrf?^?^cT?einTfm giver?' '
The services over, the congrega
tion repaired to the grove where a
magnificent dinner was served. An
hour intermission having been spent
in social intercourse, the crowd re
entered the church and listened to a
discourse by Rev. Littlejohn, pas
tor of the church who is held in
highest esteem by the people of the

the meeting adjourned to meet at

.LT. Minis, Mrs. M. D. Lyon, Mrs.

some whose names we can't recall.

The nvnister had just been giv
ing the class a lesson on the Prodi
gal Son. At the finish, to test what
attention had been paid to his
preaching he asked:
"Who was sorry that the Prodi
gal had returned?"
The most forward youngster in
the class breathlesslv answered :
"The fatted calf!"

A Very Profitabl? Ses?on~of the
Union Meeting of the
First Division at
While the attendance upon the
union meeting at Berea was not
very large on Saturday, owing to
the fact that farmers are very busy
at this season, the topics were very
ably discussed and the day was
profitably spent by those whose
good fortune it was to be able to at
tend. Morning and afternoon ses
sions were held, 'dinner being serv
ed at church.
It was the writer's privilege, to
attend the union meeting on Sun
day. Instead of regular Sunday
school exercises iii the morning, the
.time was consumed- by an address
upon the lesson by Dr. C. E. Burts.
The missionary sermon was
preached by Rev. J. E. Johnstone,
pastor of Mountain Creek church,
his text being- "Ye are cursed with!
a curse: for ye have robbed me, even
this whole nation." The speaker
pointed out a number of ways in
which men rob God, and with much
earnestness urged upon his hearers
to fie true, Faithful, loyal. The
splendid sermon " was well received,
falling as seed upon good ground.
At the close of the discourse, a col
lection was taken for state mis

using more fertilizer for the small ,
crops, that is the grain crops, corn
and so forth. I have noted a gen
