First Sermon Sunday Morning.
The Advertiser has been inform
ed that Rev. J. R. Walker, Rev.
L. D. Gillespie's successor, will ar
rive Thursday and will preach his
first sermon in the Methodist
church Sunday morning. Rev. Mr.
Walker is held in very high esteem
in the South Carolina conference,
having for the past three years serv
ed the Second Methodist church of
Greenville as pastor. A very cor
dial welcome awaits him from the
people here of every faith and or
der." We trust that, like the other
ministers of the town, Rev. Mr.
Walker will be the pastor of the
The poorest girls in the world
are those who have never been
taught to work. Independent pa
rents have petted them:, they have
been taught to despise labor, and
depend upon others for a living and
are perfectly helpless. If misfortune
comes upon their friends, as it of
ten does, their case is hopeless. The
most forlorn and miserable women
on earth belong to this class, lt be
longs to parents to protect their
daughters from this deplorable con
dition. They do them a great wrong
if they neglect it. Every daughter
should be taught to earn her own
living. The rich as well as the poor
require this training. The wheel of
fortune rolls swiftly around-the
rich are very likely to become poor,
and the poor rich. Still to labor is
no disadvantage to the rich and is
indispensable to the poor. Well-to
do parents must educate their
daughters to work; no reform is
more imperative than this.-Seleot

Death of Mr. W. M. Vann.
Death has no sting to such a man
as Mr. Vann. His life-daily walk
and conversation-was a constant
and persistent effort to follow in
the footsteps of the Saviour whom
he served. Gentle, modest, reserved
and retiring in manner he doubtless
was not as widely known or as ful
ly appreciated as he should have
been. The county had no truer, no
nobler, no more exemplary citizen
than he. In the home, in the com
munity, and in his church, Mr.
Vann's death has left a vacancy
that can not be filled.
This good man is survived by his
devoted wife who before her mar
riage was Miss Ida Day. ,
