Eternity was in every doctrir
every exhortation, every hope ai
every point of faith he inspired. I
referred at some length to the M<
siahship of Christ. The Bishop sa
the tendency of the times is
temporalize, to mundane Christ
to flatter Him instead of worshi
ping Him-to patronize Him rath
than .obey Him." He deprecated tl
tendency 'to change the gospel
suit the conditions. The Bishop sa:
long centuries lie out before u
civilization is yet crude, but /:
spite of the changes that will con
God's word will stand. "Tea(
them whatsoever I have cominan
ed you." The scientists may fir
out more about water,, more aboi
the wind, more about the electric
forces and other forces of natur
but there is no more to learn aboi
God. He likened the "latter da
fermentated ecclesiastic" who got
about trying to discover a new faitl
to a mosquity that disturbs the tire
farmer at night.
He said the people have a diffei
ent way of coming to Harmony t<
day from what his father had 4
years ago,but while they go now i
automobiles they yet have the sam
hope, the same faith and the earn
plan of salvation. Our fathei

sinner and eternal life for the saint
Bishop Eilgo spoke at som
length of the efforts to bring aboa
peace in Europe, but said they wer
all selfish, being inspired by deair
to realize a better price for cot toi
Or for bonds and stocks on Wal
Street. People are interested ii

larger corn yields that are beinf
made but by the way the Glen soi
boys will appear at the Judgmen
Bar. Wofford college should not bi

said that sometime one asks if th(
church opposes dancing or card
playing, as if the church coule
make laws. The business of the
church is -to proclaim already-en
acted laws. The preacher is not a
legislator but an embassador with a
commission, In speaking of service,
Bishop Eilgo said: "The man who
serves the world the best is the man
who hungers for heaven most."
Occasionally Bishop Eilgo would
grow less serious and with some de
siree of irony and ridicule refer tb
some of the latter-day fallacies and
methods 'in dealing with religious
matters, occasionally giving the
ministry a thrust by way of pleas
In concluding, the Bishop refer
red to the pleasure that it gave him
to attend the church that was serv
ed by his father 40 years and more
ago. He said Harmony was the
churoh in which he first kneeled at
the "mourners' bench" as an eight
year-old boy, and it was in this
county, at Moore's Chapel, that his
father was licensed to preaoh.
Moore's Chapel was later sold to
the colored people and is now used
by them, being located some dis
tance to the rear of "Cedar Grove,"
Mrs. Elizabeth Nicholson's home.

At the conclusion of the dedica
tory sermon, the officers of the
church, Messrs. G. M. Smith, B.
R. ?Smitb, Bettis Bouknight, Joe
Bouknight, Walter Smith, L. G.
Watson, S. B. Marsh, J. S. Smith
and E. N. Smith, came forward and
formally presented the new build
ing to the conference to be dedicated
to the service of God, the solemn
words being uttered by Mr. G. M.
Smith. The building was received
by Presiding Elder Kilgo and the
dedicatory prayer was offered by
Bishop Kilgo. With this beautiful
and impressive scene the exercises
Just before adjournment, Mr.
Ervin Smith arose and extended
a very cordial invitation to all
visitors to partake of the dinner
that had been provided. Soon after
adjournment the large throng gath
ered about the long table under the
oaks and partook of the very gener
ous hospitality of the good people
of Harmony. One rarely ever sees
such a feast as that served at Har
mony Sunday. In addition to the
basket dinner which wau beautifully
served in practically unlimited quan
tity, barbecued meats and hash were
also provided. Nowhere else in the
wide, wide world will one find hos
pitality more lavishly bestowed than
by the people of the Harmony com
In planning for Sunday, it was
the original desire and purpose of
the committee to have an afternoon
service, but failing to secure a
speaker for the afternoon the con
gregation did not re-assemble after
dinner. Two hours or more were
very pleasantly spent in social inter
course in the grove.
We were impressed with the
thoughtfulness of the committee on
arrangements. A rest room was pro

patrons that the new enterprise
I have launched in Greenwood is not
to change the policy or plans of THE
CORNER STORE. We hope to
make it, if possible, even a better
store than in the past. Your wants
will be looked after in my absence
by those in charge with pains-taking
care, and we hope to continue this
business on the same mutually pleas

vided in the school building near
by where the ladies, especially
mothers with little babes, could re
pair and relax after the strenuous
hours of the forenoon. Notwith
standing the close proximity sf the
well to the church, the committee
had several barrels of water
placed near the table where all
CQuld slake their thirst. Nothing
waa left undone that would con
tribute in any manner to the com
fort and pleasure of those who as
sembled for the dedicatory service.
Such thoughtfulness is characteris
tic of the Harmony people. They
are kind, generous and thoughtful
as individuals and as a community.

Sunday night Bishop Kilgo
preached to a large congregation
in the Baptist church, the occasion
being 'the regular monthly union
service. His sermon was well re
ceived and at the conclusion of the
service a large number of persons
went up to greet the Bishop.
