We have said much about the John
ston Chautauqua for several weeks,
and we will now make a last appeal
to The Advertiser's readers to at
tend the splendid entertainments
that Johnston will offer the people
throughout next week. Many per
sons will go to the cities to see at
tractions that are not a whit better
than Johnston v?ill offer for next
week, not only paying higher prices
in cities but paying railroad fare
and hotel bills also. Commencing
with Saturday of this week a new
and attractive programme has been
arranged for each succeeding day.
In addition to ordinary programmes
of vocal and instrumental music
there will be several celebrated
bands and orchestras. Lecturers,
readers, humorists, impersonators,
as well as persons possessing a vari
ty of talent are booked for the
week, some appearing one day and
others another day. Our people
can not afford to miss hearing these
specialists and very gifted artists
when the cost is so small. If you
don't own a conveyance, take the
train to .iohnston. The schedule is
now very conveniently arranged.
Let Edegetield be largely represent
ed at each entertainment.

''Rose Cottage" Writes of Son
day School Picnic. Sunday
School Convention at
Last Saturday there 'vas a Sunday
school picnic at Rehoboth. The diy
was beautiful and bright, and quite
a number gathered in the grove to
spend the day pleasantly together.
We all met in the church about
11:30 o'clock and had songs and
prayers and the reading of the
cripture, after which speeches
were made by Messrs. Cogburn,
Mellichamp, Fuller, Cantelou and
J. T. Littlejohn. The talks were
all on the line of Sunday school.
They were very helpful and inspir
ing. We all went to the grove again
where a dinner was spread as only
the people of Rehoboth can spread,
ice lemonade was served to all. The
ladies missionary society met in I he
church in the afternoon. While they
were in session the young people
had a good time talking and laugh
ing. The older men talked of the
crops and weather. We congratulate
superintendent J. D. Hughey on the
splendid arrangement for the day.
Rehoboth is one of the very best
communities in all the state. We
fell in love with Rehoboth people
about 18 years ago, and our love
grows stronger and stronger for
them as the years go by. Many
changes have taken place in these
years, many dear ones are gone, yet
their sons and daughters have risen
up to take their place, and the
work moves on.
The Sunday school convention of
the Edgefield association will con
vene with the Bold Spring church
Wednesday and Thursday before
the fourth Sunday in July. Let all
the Sunday schools in the associa
tion keep this in mind and see that
your Sunday school is represented.
Hold Spring is a great church, one
of the best in the association. Their
pastor is a great man, Rev. J. L'.
Johnston, we have known and loved
him-for near on to 30 years. So
with a great church and great pas
tor we ought to have a great Sun
day school convention. Let's make
it the best in the history.
