Mr. Editor: As you were not able
to attend, and knowing your inter
est in the S. C. C. I., we feel con
strained to wTfte you of two profita
ble meetings we have attended there,
within the last few days. On Friday
afternoon the elocution class of
Miss Lillie Mae*Bailey gave a reci
tal, which was much enjoyed by all.
The girls acquitted themselves well,
and did credit to their faithful teach
er. A chorus, by a crowd of lovely
girls, with Mrs. Bailey and Mrs.
Entzminger at the piano, was beau
On Saturday night, Dr. Burts ad
dressed the boys of the F. L. S. He
Tras introduced by Mr. Johnston,
president of the sociaty. His tribute
to Dr. Burts was fine, and no doubt
voiced the sentiments of all present.
We wish all the boys could have
heard Dr. Burts' address. His theme
was j "Luck" and he proved that
there is no such thing as luck, but
it is pluck, that boys must have to
succeed in life.
Misses Blanche Landrum, Nell
Jones and Annie Cantelou rendered
beautiful inusic for the occasion.
We think we "Buncornbites" are
blessed in living so near the col
lege,, wh?re w?. can * have advantage
of its entertainments. Col. Bailey
has done, and is doing a great deal
for Edgefield in keeping up the
school, and having such noble Chris
tian men and women for teachers.
Eternity alone will reveal the. good
he has done.
I can't tell yon how rejoiced we
all are at your recovery. Do hope
you will soon be strong again, a nd
able to resume your work, for
next to the'Baptist Courier, there is
no paper like the dear old Adverti
ser. It ought to bein every home.
Right here let me say as a, friend,
that you, too, are doing a good work,

The reception at Dr. Burts home
en Friday afternoon was announced
from the pulpit at the Baptist
church on Suuday morning, and all
the congregation cordially invited.
This occasion should be made a
memorable one, and will be the
more so if every member of the con
gregation is present, and brings a
substantial offering for the pipe or
gan fund. The afternoon and even
ing will be delightful in a social
way, and music and refreshments
will add pleasure to the occasion.
Let every member of the congrega
tion lend their presence somewhere
from four to ten to this unique re
ception and carry a happy greeting
to Dr. and Mrs. Burts, and the
friends they meet there, as well asa
gift for the organ fund.
I wish to thank the public for'
their efforts of service in behalf of
my destructive fire, and wish to
add that I do intend to be in opera
tion again soon, and by support of
my creditors that are due me ac

will greatly help me and by this act
enable rae to help them.

Delightful Valentine Party.
On Friday evening at the hom
of Mrs. Mary J. Norris, the young
er set of Edgefielci were entertained
by Miss Helen Tillman, at a most
pleasant and unique valentine party.
The decorations were white and red.
Hundreds of hearts hung in grace
ful festoons and unique designs in
the hall, reception rooms and din
ing room. A postoffice which re
ceived nothing but valentines was
placed in the hall, and each one re
ceived and gave a valentine. Con
tests and other amusements helped
to while away the delightful season.
Fruit punch and a salad course and
sweets were abundantly served.
Sham Battle on the 22nd.
The Rifle company here is plan
ning to have a sham battle on Feb
ruary 22nd-Washington's birthday.
All members who cafe to partici
pate in this battle, should attend the
meetings every Tuesday and Thurs
day nights prior to the 22nd.
Dr. Burts Accepts.
The daily papers announce that
Dr. C. E. Burts accepts the call to
the first church of Columbia. We
rejoice in his decision, though we
sympathize keenly with Edgefield.
Dr. Burts is eminently fitted for the,
large responsibilities of this impor
tant pastorate. In bodyv and mind
and heart he has been shaped for j
such a task. And it is a great task J
that he is called to. There is not an
other pastorate in the ntate more im
Columbia is the second city of the
state in size and almost the first in
commercial importance. It is the
center of our political life and the
seat of the state university. The First
?Baptist church because of its loca
tion and the Uong contin?ed influ
ence of great pastorsj is in closest)
touch with the whole life of the |
capital and has a responsibility sec
ond to none in the state.
But just at this time because of |
the new life coming into our mis
sion work in the capital, Columbia j
is alive with the possibilities of a |
great Baptist campaign. The state
mission board has seen the new day
and has tully realized its own large
responsibilities in this field and has
alp o been unusually fortunate \n se
curing the services pf missionaries
who do things.
The coming of Dr. Burts to this
field of unusual responsibilities and
possibilities is not an ordinary pas-'|
toral change. It has significance for
the whole state. And we voice the
general feeling of satisfaction when
we say that the great charge has
been placed in worthy hands. Above
all else Dr. Burts is a true man
with a genuine loving heart in his J
breast. Men love him and; trust him
and lean on" him. He takes a larg?
interest in public questions and will
be a tower of strength for all legis
lation that makes for righteousness.
We have not in our midst a de
nominational leader more trusted.
All the boards want him. He is fra
ternal, siggressive, wise; and thc
noble workers of Columbia will be
greatly strengthened by his coming.
