Off for the Corn Show.
A Ropers-Colliers j arty of pro
gressive farmers, consisting of D.
E. Lanham, E. H. Mathis, C. T.
Mathis, J. L. Miller, H. W. McKie
and Ernest Miller, left yesterday to
spend two days at tho corn exposi
tion. With the possible exception
of Mr. .1. L. Miller, none of these
trentlemen have ever visited Colum
bia before. If it served no oilier
purpose, a corn 6how is a good
thiner to pull people out of the rut
in which they have been moving for
nigh on to 100 years-such old men
as Henry McKie and Ernest. Miller.
One thing is certain, no visitors to
the exposition will receive great
er benefit than these six in
S.C.C. I. News.
J. C. Applewhite presided over
the Sunday night meeting of ohe
Y. M. C. A. The scripture leBson
which he read was from Matthew
5th chapter. Mr. Themas Lanham
once of Edgefield county, but how
in charge of county Y. M. C.
A. work near Cleveland, Ohio, ad
dressed our society: His subject
which he fitly and ably discussed
was, "Our purpose in life." Mr.
Lanham gripped his audience with
the earnest and consecrated talk
he made. His text was found in
Phil. 3:13 and he gave us three
rules that a Christian should fol
low: 1st, study God's word, 2nd,
talk to him in prayer and 3rd, help
others. The association greatly ap
preciated this fine address. Capt.
Taylor is trying to secure another
attractive speaker for our next
The la9t talk that Dr. J. F. Vines
of Anderson gave us was a week
ago last Tuesday. At the chapel
exercises he especially urged us to
come to Christ and be saved.
On Friday morning over a dozen
cadets and all the college girls
marched down to the station to see
Dr. Vines depart. A hand shake all
around was all the time he had be
fore the train pulled out bearing
the beloved preacher, dearer now
than ever before to over fifty newly
saved young people.
Friday night tour C. I. boarding
girls were baptized into the fellow
ship of the Baptist church. Misses
?Sallie Mims, Myra Morrb, Clara
Sauls and Leila Bandy were the
ones that received the sacred ordi
nance. A most remarkable fact
about the girls is that there is not
a single girl boarding in thebuild
ing that is not now a follower of
Jesus Christ. 1
Sunday morning was a joyous ,
times, Pm sure, for Dr. Jeffries for
he buried six cadets in baptism that
morning. Cadets A S Kilgore, VV
K M erndon, L P Elam, H T Joye,
G S Leslie and C T Burnett. The .
special prayers of the Edgefield
Baptist church must surely now be, ?
for these new members that they
may grow in grace and usefulness. '
Mr. and Mrs. A. Ham Brant '
from Ruf?in, S. C., arrived at the
college Thursday to see their son
and left Saturday.
John Kandy from Aiken and his j
little brother were at the college
The following cadets are on i
leave: Private Atkinson to Colliert*j"'
lieutenant D B Woodward to Ai
ken, corporal Foster to Greenville, (
private Partlow to Augusta. Cadet
captains Horton and Croxton were ,
away Monday in Columbia to attend |,
the corn show.
Through some mistake the full I
roll of the newly elected ofiieers of ;
the Pierian Literary .Society wa9 \
not published last week. I omitted <
that of censor. Cadet J. C. Apple- ?
white wis elected to that office. t
In the recent competitive drill
heid here recently between the two 1
companies, Co. B. was successful, *
capturing both medals. Private .
Reese won the recruit medal and '
1st sergeant Kilgore, the old boys. ?
The Pierian Literary Society held :
another interesting debate which
was resolved: 'That the steamboat
has done more for civilization than 1
the locomotive." The debate was
won by the affirmative. Special men
tion must be made of the reader.
His piece was comical but well
read- The installation of the new
ofiieers took place at tim meeting.
The vice president made a splendid
inaugural speech. On account of the
absence of the president no speech
was made by him but we will ex
pect one next meeting.
It is understood that this year
the school will go ou an encamp
ment to Greenwood in April. The
cadets will march about half way
to Greenwood where the citizens of
that town will send automobiles to
convey us to that city. The return
trip will be made by the train. All
together five days will be consumed
in the encampment.
The Fiddian Literary Society for
girls also met Monday afternoon. A
full attendance with the exception
of one member, witnessed a very
interesting debate which was won
by the affirmative, resolved that
"women should be given the right
to vote. Good points were brought
out bv both sides and the meeting
was cn jo ved by all present.
