Splendid Rally Day Trenton.
Trenton has- bean preparing for
several weeks for the reoeption of
Rev. and Mrs. John Lake on whioh
ocoasion a missionary rally day was
to be'enjoyed. The weaiher was en
tirely propitious, and a number
of guests from other churohes and
mission societies were present to
participate in this happy meeting
and greeting time. Those gmeats who
arrived in time for the Sunday
school hour enjoyed pleasant con
verse with friends during the inter
im between the two meetings, and
saw the Trenton Sunday school
workers doing their allotted tasks.
Mr. T. P. Salter presided over the
Sunday school, and Messrs. Wm.
?. Holland and Jerome H. Court
ney had charge of adult class?e in
the main auditorium of the church.
Other classes were instructed in
other parts of the church in rooms
assigned to the various classes.
As the time came for the hour of
regular servioe, the church began
to fill,, and the people of all denomi
nations soon arrived to lend their
presence and enthusiasm to the aus
picie U3 meeting. Many of them,
most of them, had known Mr. Lake
since bis childhood and all of them
wanted to know Mrs. Lake.
Miss Helen Salter is the efficient
organist of the church and accom
panied Trenton's sweet singer. Miss
Roseva Harrison in the vocal solos,
'Til go where you want me to go,''
and "Nailed to the oross," the for
mer sung by request at the after
noon servioe. Miss Harrison's sing
ing was not only enjoyed on ac
count of her sweet tones and train
ed voice, but for her sincerity and
earnestness as she sang. The ohoir
of the church was assisted by the
ohoirs of the various Trenton
Rev. Graves L. Knight pastor
of the church was present to do the
honors of the occasion which he per
formed as some one remarked, in a
most "knightly" manner introduc
ing the speakers, and making the
visitors feel the kindlineis of Tren
ton's abundant hospitality.
Rev. John Lake was first present
ed, and related in his thrilling way
some scenes of the recent Chinese
revolution through which he and
Mrs. Lake had passed, and many
other interesting facts and events
of China and the Chinese. While
the audience listened, some thought
how. true must have been Mr.
Knight's statement in his introduc
tion of Mr. Lake, that no one knew
just how many other sickles had
been pat to work on the great har
vest field of the world by this con
secrated reaper. At the close of the
meeting, a collection was taken for
the work of Foreign missions in the
field of Mrs. Lake and Mrs. Snuggs.
Roland Snuggs, Edgefield's adopt
ed sou, reoited that masterpiece of
his selection, "Is it nothing to you?*'
It has become a trite saying that
Trenton is noted for her good oooks,
but if makes no difference it must
be repeated. The dinner on this oc
casion was. ideal. Out under the
shade of the trees a table was laden
with chicken in abundance, all
temptingly prepared, cooked by
nome process which made it unnec
essary even to chew. The lemon
pies and icc tea and salad and cake
were of the most approved style and
everybody participated with exceed
ing relish. The hour of the day
were filled with material for strength
food for body, mind and soul.
After the recess all the missiona
ries present, and it was a sweet re
union-sang in Chinese, and Ro
land and Faith Snuggs recited the
23rd Psalm, or said they reoited
it, but the American audience
thought they were singing, so
rhythmic were their Chinese intona
Mrs. Lake has been unable to
talk in her impressive way as many
times to the friends in Edgefield a"
they wanted her to, on aooount of
the frailty of her health, but this
time she was enabled to do so, and
engaged the most earnest and con
centrated, attention of the men, wo
men and children in the audiunce.
It was indeed beautiful to hear and
see her out of the deep interest and
enthusiasm of her heart relate many
men and startling conditions and
incidents of ola and new China.
Mrs. Snuggs who has been in
Edgefield for several mouths, at in
tervals, made an interesting talk,
and description of the kindergarten
work which she bad undertaken in
China and some pathetic bul hope
ful incidents in that connection.
Edgefield association has been in
terested from the beginning in this
endeavor of Mrs. Snuggs for the
little people of China.
Altogether the music, the ad
dresses, th? fraternel feeling of all
the churches, who were represented
by Kev. Mr. Shaunonhouse and
Rev. E. C. Bailey, and their churoh
es, the hospitality and the cordiali
ty in word aud deed, made this one
of tho pleasantest occasions of the
jaar. F. M.
