Dr. Thayer Delivers Helpful
The Baptist congregation, in
spite of very inclement weather
both morning and evening, enjoyed
very edifying and instructive ser
mons from Rev. J. H. Thayer, pas
tor of the Ridge Spring Baptist
church. Dr. Thayer had visited
Edgefield on a former occasion on
invitation of the woman's mission
society, and has also assisted Rev.
P. P. Blalock in two revival meet
ings at Berea, and the people were
pleased at the announcement of his
coming at this time, and regretted
the inauspicious weather conditions.
Called to Beaufort.
Rev. W. T. Hundley has been
called to the pastorate of the Bap
tist church and has : accepted. We
felt sure that this would be the out
. come of the supply arrangement en
tered int? the first of the year. Peo
ple who hear Hundley fall in love
with him. After writing this note
we received a card from Brother
Hundley which speaks for itself:
' "Things go well with me in Beau
fort by the sea. On the 29th of
February, the church extended to
me a unanimous oall to the pastor

the regular work again. Am the
pastor of a generous, whole-souled
people. Our $2,500 pipe organ will

Sad Death of Little Augustus
The many friends of Mr. and
Mrs. Augustus Merrimon will sym
pathize with them deeply in the
loss of their only child Augustus
Merriman, at their home in Sumter.
Mrs. A. S. Tompkins went over to
Sumter last week to see the little
grandson, and add her sympathy
and counsel to that of the parents
in the illness of the child, but there
was no power in human hands, and
God in his own wis lora, did not
stay the hand of Death, so that
sorrow too deep for words, now
reigns in that erstwhile happy home.
It seems but a very short period
sinee these bereaved parents were
happy and care free young people
tn our school, without responsibility,
and it is sad, but no doubt neces
sary, in the Divine economy, for
these things to be. After all, we are
but children in our Father's keep
