Saturday afternoon, a eevere hail
etorm visited the section about mid
way between Edgefield and Har
mony. Farmers residing in the
section extending two or three miles
southward from the county home
suffered more or lees serious damage.
The hail-stricken section is approxi
mately one mile in width. In some
p'aces both corn and cotton we/e

the loss being similar to that which
was experienced by the farmers in
the Cleora section Beveral years ago.

to be distressing, it being now too
late to replant. Those who have
thus suffered have the profound

; Speech in the Union Meet

Query: How can we raise the
standard of our church fellowship?
FirsT, let us decide what church
fellowship is: brotherhood, compan
ionship, brotherly love, and good
and kindly^ feeling for another.
Next, the way to raise this to a
higher standard is to cultivate it
according to the word of God. To
cultivate fellowship with God we
must come unto him and be born
again, for. whosoever believeth in
Him shall not perish but have ever
lasting life. So then that we are
born again of water and of the
spirit we have fellowship with God.
SecoDdj cultivate fellowship with
Christ. So then that we have been
made whole by Christ, itt us sin no
moi?tb?twe may have power to
lead' others to Christ/ All men
should honor the Son even as they
honor the Father. He that honor
eth not the Son honoretb not the
Father who hath sent Him. He
that hath the Son hath' life and he
that bath not the Son of God hath
not life. And this is the confidence
that we have in Him that if we ask
anything according to His will,
He heareth us, and if we know that
He hears us whatsoever we ask we
know that we have the petition de
sired of Him.
Third, cultivate fellowship with
oneanother. John 15:10: This is
my commandment that, ye love one
another as I have loved you. Let
love of the brethren continue.1 Fin
ally beal] like minded, compassion
ate, loving as bTetbren,tender heart
ed, humblt .minded, dot rendering
evil for evil or reviling for reviling
but contrariwise blessing^ for here
unto were ye called, that ye might
inherit a blessing. Then also I
would say that we cultivate the
spirit of forbearance and forgive
ness towards the brethren,practical
to one another and be less critical.
