VOL. 76. EDGEFIELD, S. C., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2,1911 , NO. 26
S. S. CONVENTION.
Profitable Session of the Edge
field Sunday School Conven
tion Held at Stevens
Mr. Editor: On Wednesday
morning in company with our gen
ial sheriff, we betook ourselves td
the historical old church of Stevens
Creek to be present at the Edgefield
Baptist Sunday School convention.
En route to this great convention,
our mind would involuntarily re
vert to that day many years ago,
when we, as a mere boy, started to
old Horn's Creek church to attend
the first organization of this great
body of Sunday school workers.
Many are the sad reminiscences that
occupy ?ur mind as we contemplate
the great number of men and wo
men who were present and took
part in this first meeting of the con
vention, the most of whom have al
ready passed1 'over the river. " The
only one remaining now who took a
prominent part in the organization
that we can call to mind, is that old
and venerable soldier of the cross,
Rev. J. P. Mealing, who if we mis
take not, was the first president of
thc? convention. Many at that time
had great fears as to the advisabil
ity of attempting to form a separate
organization from the association
for the furtherance of the Sunday
school work, claiming that accord
ing to Benjamin Franklin "lt was
better to let the little kittens pass
through the same hole in the. door
that the old cat went in at."
Brother Mealing was at that time
a very enthusiastic advocate of the
convention, and has ever remained
a strong supporter of this great
work. We remember how a few
years ago at a meeting of the con
vention at Parksville some of the
youDger heads thought it best to
abandon this work. Bro. y ealing
arose, and after reviewing the strug
gles that he and other veterans kui
made to maintain thia, to his mind
the most important organization for
the furttierr.r.ce of the-?atidayschool
cause, pleaded earnestly that the
Sunday school convention should
be perpetuated. It is needless to
say that we have all seen the wis
dom of his position Bro. Mealing
is not able to attend these meetings
now, owing to the infirmity of age
but we feel assured that, as we as
semble from year to year, his
faithful heart rises in prayer to God
for the success of th? convention;
but enough of these reminiscences
and back to the convention.
We arrived on the grounds at an
early hour, and were soon shaking
hands with friends from every di
rection. In a short time the^great
stream o? vehicles that began to
pour in from every direction con
vinced us that people had not for
gotten the time immemorial adage:
"If you want to have a good time,
and be well entertained, go to Stev
ens Creek." Promptly at the hour
appointed, the convention was call
ed to order by the president, Bro.
W. D. Holland. Devotional exer
cises were conducted by Bro. R. T.
The first order of business being
the election of officers for the en
suing year, the present officers, Bro.
W. D. HoHand, president, and Bro.
W. E. Lott, secretary, were elected.
The welcome address was made
by Bro. J.P. Mathews and m ?ond
ed to by Bro. C. M. Mellichamp.
We were all made to feel that we
were welcome, and Bro. Mellichamp
expressed \ery beautifully our ap
preciation of this heafty welcome.
Next came the report of the Field
Secretary. This being rather a new
feature of the work, there Jias not
been made that progress that is to
be desired; still it is to be hoped
that in the future this may be made
an important factor in the conven
There was only ene of the speak
ers on the first query present-Bro.
P. H. Bussey, Jr. Subject: "The
future men and women, what are
they to bei"' What we missed in
numbers was amply repaid in the
able manner in which the speaker
discussed the subject. We were
made to feel proud and
our heart arose in gratitude to God
for giving us this young preacher,
who so forcibly and eloquently pic
tured the great possibilities of the
men of the future. He proved con
clusively that it rested on the par
ents and teachers to determine
what the men abd women of the fu
ture would be. After listening to
others on the subject, the dinner
hour having arrived we adjourned
to the long table in the grove where
we Were well fed by the good peo
ple of the community. We will
not say that the table groaned un
der its weight of good things, but
we might say that there was eon .
groaning done in the afternoon on
account of some of us not giving
heed to the injunction "Be ye tem
perate in all things."
The great congregation re-assem
bbd in the hol?se in the afternoon
and resumed the discussion of the
different subjects, and were well and
profitably entertained, by speakers.
Thursday morning in company
with our better half, we returned to
the convention and let us say right
here that it was our good fortune
to secure that better half from the
hills of Stevens Creek, and if that
community ever produced anything
better than that stolen from them
b3T this scribe, we have failed to see
it. The crowd was much larger on
the. second day than on the first. A
gloom of sadness swept over the
convention at the beginning of the
services when Bro. "Wilkins made a
public announcement of the tragic
death of noble Cook Burkhalter.
He spoke tenderly and feelingly of
the dear sisters and asked that a
special prayer be made in their be
half. Bro. P. H. Bussey, Jr. was
called on to lead in this prayer.
We missed the presence of our
good brother, J. T. Littlejohn, who
was called away to preach the fune
ral of this dear young man. Bro.
Wilkins made some fine talks, and
added much to the convention. We
are under obligations to brother P.
H. Bussey for bringing brother
Wishart into our midst. He made
.ome earne8tappeals to theconvention
He is a graduate from the Seminary.
He stated to the convention that
the Lord had called him to be a
missionary to China, he had pre
pared himself for that work but had
been turned down by the board be
cilise there was no money to send
him. Brother Wilkins' appeal in
his behalf was touching. "When
we look around and behold the fine
crops that are being made and think
of the prosperous condition of the
countiy, we feel that the money
ought to be raised to send that young
man where his heart is yearning to
go-to preach the gospel to the

Meeting at Berea.
The annual protracted meeting at
Berea will begin next Sunday, the
services being conducted by the
pastor, Rev. P. 1?. Bialock. Two
services will be held Sunday, din
ner being served on the grounds,
and it will tften be determined just
how far into the week the series of
services will be prolonged. The con
gregations of Berea have steadily
grown during the past few years,
and it is expected that the attend
ance will be very large next Sun
day. It is probable, as is customary
on these annual occasions; that
Edgefield will be well represented
at Berea. The people of our town
always enjoy meeting and ming

Report of Union Meeting. Beau
tiful Tribute to Cook Burk
halter. Sympathy For
The union meeting of the 3rd di
vision of the Edgefield association
convened with the Parksville Bap
tist church 3'esterday, and day be
fore, according to appointment. The
churches were all represented by
full delegations, who made favora
ble reports from their several
churches. After the enrollment of
delegates, the queries were interest
ingly discussed. The first query
discussed was: "if the!church is a
failure, who is responsible, the
church or the pastor?" This was
opened by Mr. Geo. Doolittle, who
made his maiden speech, and it was
a good one. Mr. J. M. Bussey, E.
G. Morgan, P. H. Bussey, Jr., and
o there made interesting talks, deny
ing that thc church is ever a fail
ure, but admitted that the church
was not doing what it might, and
the responsibility for dereliction is
upon both members and pastor.
"How will true religion manifest
itself" was well discussed by L. G.
Bell, E. G. Morgan and others,
showing that Christian people by
chaste conversation, and well order
ed lives, will live their religion. A
Christian should be, at least, a good
citizen, respecting the laws of God
"Should Christians get their mail
on Sunday" was well discussed bj
H. E. Bunch, Hon. T. G. Talbert
and others. The consensus of opin
ion seemed to be, that they should
not, and each one advocated that
steps should be taken to stop mail
delivery on the Sabbath, not only
for the sake of those who get mail,
but for the sake of those who are
emnloved bv the erovemment an
"Why do church members do
wrong?" was discussed by P. H.
Bussey, Jr., and Mr. E. G. Morgan.
Weakness of the flesh, and the
presence of evil, being the main
cause. The next meeting goes to
Red Oak Grove.
Sunday moming the exercise of
the Sunday school was in the hands
of superintendent J. M. Bussey. In
teresting talks were made by breth
ren E. G. Morgan, J. C. Harvley,
J. G. McKie and others. At 11:30
the missionary sermon was preach
ed by the Rev. P. H. Bussey, Jr.,
and it was a fine effort. Mr. Bussey
is a consecrated young man, and
withal is a young preacher of great
promise. The congregation was so
large, that an overflow service was
held in the grove, at which the Rev.
Earl Freeman preached a very ap
propriate missionary sermon. The
collection, ?14.27 was given to
The afternoon was devoted to the
B. Y. P. U. work. Clark's Hill,
Modoc, Plum Branch and Parks
ville were represented by delegates
from their unions. Instructive ad
dresses were made on B. Y. P. U.
work by Rev. Earl Freeman, Rev.
P. H. Bussey and Mr. W. H. Nix
on. These exercises closed a most
profitable meeting. And I should
not forget to mention the fact, that
the music was good, due to the help,
and efforts of our young people to
whom we pull our hat. This is the
first of our general meetings, at
which we have had the new pastor
of Plum Branch, the Rev. Earl
Freeman. Mr. Freeman made a fine
impression on account of his
thoughtful addrespes, and helpful
advice. This division, is fortunate
in having Mr. Freeman located in
our midst so soon after the depart
ure of Rev. Luther White.
Since my last letter, a gloom, a
sadness has been cast upon our com
munity, yes, I might say, not seen
or felt since the death of the la
mented L. F. Dorn, cansed by the
untimely death of Mr. C. C. Burk
halter. We can hardly realize that
big hearted, generous, Cook Burk
halter has gone the way of all the
earth, because of the suddenness of
his taking off. Oh, how blanched
were the faces of his friends, how
moist their eyes, how faithful their
prayers for this unfortunate young
man, when they found him mortally
wounded, but all human help fail
ed, and Cook's spirit took its flight
to God who gave it. In the death
of Cook Burkhalter the writer has
lost one of the best friends he ever
had, one who would have risked his
life for him, and the memory of
such friendship amid the fickleness
of what is often termed friendship
is indellibly written upon the tablet
of memory with which I could not
be induced to part for any earthly
consideration. Noble, manly fellow,
peace to thy ashes!
AMiushed atmosphere of grief and
awe was noticed on the faces of the
citizens of Augusta, when it was
known that Cook was dead, as well
as upon the hundreds of his friends
who came from great distances to
pay their last respects at his burial.
Such a throng! Whoever saw such
a gathering at historic old Reho
both church? With bowed heads
the Woodmen of the World of
which he was a faithful member,
laid his body to rest beside that of
his honored father until the morn
ing of the resurrection, on last Fri
9 This gathering, those flowers, the
tender words of his pastor, all at
test the esteem in which Cook
Burckhalter was held by the people
who have known him since, in early
life, at the death of his father the
responsibilities of the home, the
care of devoted sisters fell upon
him. How nobly did he meet them,
and how beautiful his devotion to
his consecrated sisters, and little
Oh, God bless us, and help us to
bear this affliction, those of us his
friends, who loved Cook, but es
pecially his afflicted family, and
more particularly his devoted sis
ters. We know Lord, that these
sisters trust Thee, and that thy
grace is able io sustain them. Give
them we pray Thee a double por
tion of thy grace we beg for Christ's
sake, amen. More Anon.
A Thought of Home.
Many beautiful things have been
written about "home," both in prose
and in poetry; much about the loca
tion, the comforts, the luxuries of
external surroundings and even
more has been written about the
sentiment and environment that
should hallow this sacred location
like home"; "home is the dearest
spot on e??.rth";"home is the sweetest
word in the English language," etc.
Just now, much is being said and
written about "the improvement
and beauty of the rural homes;" all
of which is well and we wish to
lend our aid in this direction. It
might be helpful to many to get a
just conception of what can be
made of home.
While the word "home" has
stood for the same thing in our
language since time began, yet as
the human race develops and the re
sources of this terrestrial ball con
tinuesjto unfold under the skillful
hands and inventive minds of man,
the word takes on new meaning
and receives additional possibilities.
Home has long been a central loca
tion-forming the starting point,
from which he might plan many ex
cursions, in search of new and
broader fields, new ideas, pleasures
Men have made good use of their
local abodes-adorned them and
surrounded them with many com
forts, while they have spent more
or less of their time within their
sacred walls. Not long since, the
idea came to us with tremendous
force that all our modern inven
tions, if rightly used, would bring
the world into our homes-instead
of our having to "travel abroad to
see the world" as we have been ac
customed to doing. Rapid transpor
tation brings the goods of every
clime to our very door, or with
equal facility transports our pro
duce to profitable markets.
There is no excuse for the far
mers of to-day, loitering around

and when the close of day calla up

to his home, enjoy his meal, his ,
bath, his paper, his books, commu

subjects of interest or with those
in town on matters of business. He ,
can gather his children .around his
hearthstone, to listen to something
read of more than passing moment,
or he can bring forth his phono- ;
graph and hear the best songs or ?
recitals of the day. Thus his body
and his mind can both have all the ,
needed healthful, stimulative em
ployment, while he still remains at
home. W? can hardly couceive of
how much the homestead will res
pond to one's constant and intelli
gent care. Nor have we any illus
trations in the past to indicate what

Fears the Crops Have Been In
correctly Reported. Union
Meeting. Fertilizer Fac
tory for Trenton.
Mr. Editor, we have noticed the
reports of prospect for a bumper
crop of cotton from every county in
the state and also the report that
the 8tate would make enough corn.
We do not like to come out and dis
pute what another man says but we
are afraid that these reports are
far fetched. The cotton crop in
many places is only a "prospect"
as we call it It will be necessary
for the weather conditions to be
very favorable for a very large crop
of cotton to be made and it is the
general report that the corn crop as
a whole is short. *
The union meeting was held with
the Ebenezer church on Saturday
and Sunday. The services were
well attended and an interesting
program was carried out.
Our community was saddened on
Saturday when the death of Mr.
Tom Smith was announced. Mr.
Smith came here from what is now
Saluda county several years ago.
He was a man who made friends
of all he came in contact with. He
always stood for what was right and
his name was a synonym of all
that goes to make up the qualities
of a Christian citizen. If we were
asked to express his life in one sen
tence we . would say, *'He was a
man." The whole community and
his church will miss him and his
name will always be remembered by
the exemplary life that he lived.
We are sorry to note that Mr. W.
M. Leppard has been confined to
his room for the past week, bat he
has improved enough to be np now.

There is now on foot plans to pat

Enough of the stock has already
been subscribed to insure success.
Work on the plant will begin in
the very near future.
Death of Mr. Smith.
It is doubted if any funeral at
Harmony has ever before been so
largely attended as was that of Mr.
Thomas G. Smith which was held
last Sunday afternoon. A great
throng of people from Harmony,
Trenton, Philippi Johnston and
Edgefield gathered to pay a last
tribute to this good man who pass
ed away at his home Saturday af
ternoon. The funeral was con
ducted by Rev. E. H. Beckham, as
sisted by Rev. T. P. Burgess.
While not so widely known as
some others who aspire to promi
nence and public preferment, yet
Edgefield county never had within
her borders a more upright, more
honorable or a traer citizen than
Thomas G. Smith. View his life
from whatever standpoint you may,
measure it by whatever standard
you choose and in no sense will he
be found wanting. He chose to
spend his life on the farm serving
his church and his God quietly,
yet zealously and faithfully, rather
than seek the applause of men by
entering public life. Mr. Smith
was a man of good judgment, eon
sequently succeeded with his life
work in a measure that was far
above the average of men.
Mr. Smith was not only an offi
cer but one of the pillars of Har
mony church, where, next to his
home and fireside, he will be miss
ed most. He was also a life-long
Sunday school worker. One of the
most beautiful of the many floral
tributes was from his Sunday school
class. In his death the ranks of
he Confederate veterans have again
