W. M. ?? MEETING,
Eleyenth Annual Convention
Held at Clark's Hill Last
Week. Meeting a Great
! It was a pleasure indeed to the
women who weie privileged to ?t^
Hend the W. M. U. at Clark's Hill.
Some thought, the distance* too
?great and did not attempt the trip !
! but could they have realized what,
[a treat was in store for them, trivia?'
hindrances would have vanished
and they like as would have been j:
on the way in the early morn. Thei
roads were so good that the tripit
was easily and quickly made. When j
we wer? in a few miles of the place;
you could begin to hear exclama^
tions o f surprise at the beautiful j
scenery on every hand. As we drove j
up, strains of the sweetest music i
reached our ears, a real orchestra, j
it seemed they must have. As first!
impressions are lasting we areal-'
ways glad for them to be pleasant, j
and so on this occasion, as ween-?
tered, the church was so attractive '
with pot plants, snow white covers!
over everything and all that could
have been done for the comfort and'
convenience of the meeting and^i
strains of that inspiring music?
reaching our ears, how could wfj?,
have felt other than that we wert?i
glad to bi there? That feeling itifA
creased with each hour of our sta$||
At the piano was Miss Kathrine^
[Adams, Miss Luke of Augusta wittit?
the violin and Mr. Hugh Adams df
Clark's Hill whh the cornet. These
young people did not play a few
times and leave us but let it be said
to their credit that they were there!
before the services began and stayed
until the close of each one. The
choir of about 15 splendid voices j
was just as faithful, and if the;
judges for the "Harvest Jubilee.
Queen" had been there they wouffi .'
not have gone any farther but couijte
easi?y -have closed their eyes att?':^m
lected a queen. It might have been
either a Miss or a Mrs. At ll
o'clock the 11th annual meeting of
the Wi M. U. of the Edgefield as
sociation was called to order by
that most faithful and efficient su
perintendent, Mrs. J. L. Muns of
Edgetield. It was regretted that our
faithful secretary, Mrs. T. P. Lyon,
was absent. Miss Sallie Minis was
asked to act as secretary which she
gracefully dtd and with much
ability. Devotions were conducted
hy Mrs. John Grims of Red Oak
Grove. Words of welcome were
most graciously extended by Mrs.
S. T. Adams of Clark's Hill and al
so by Rev. P. B. Lanham as pastor
of the church. If we had felt wel
come on entering we felt thrice wel
come after these most cordial greet
ings. This was responded to Mrs.
W. R. Swearingen, president of the
Berea society. The regular program
was then taken up and we listened
to a message from our state presi
dent, Mrs. J. H. Chapman, given
by Mrs. Charlie Strom.
Mrs. Mims' address and report of
the past year's work was enjoyed
and spoke encouragement to all.
This report tells us that we have 20
woman's mission societies, 5 Y. W.
A's, 2 G. A'.. 1 R. A. and 10 Sun
beam bands and up to this time they
have raised $918.15. For the or
phanage boxes $25, aged ministers
$8.50, Christian education $27,
home benevolences $295.50 and for
the hospital $3.42 in cash and two
boxes of linen were reported sent
there ,also $30 was given to fur
nish a room at Seivern academy.
As there are yet two months before
the slate works close we think that
we may yet reach our apportion
ment which was $1,550. ll societies
reported mission study classes held,
153 subscriptions to missionary
magazines, 16 societies reported
personal work done, ll report hav
ing held 12 regular meetings with a
definite program and 2 egg bands
was reported. This report I am sure
is encouraging to all and I think we
have oause to be grateful that we
accomplished so much.
At the last meeting at Bethany
the association was divided into
three divisions with a president'over
each. There were Mrs. P. B. Tal-,
bert of the 1st division, Mrs. J. T
Littlejohn of the 2nd and Mrs. G.
M. Sexton of the 3rd. This year
each president made a report from
her division and those from her di
vision stood at the front that all

your home, your mother, your wife,
your children, your father, your
brother, your sister, your neighbor

are at the place where the big way
and the narrow way separates,
narrow is the path and straight is
the way that leads from earth to
heaven. The first start and the
post is Jesus on the cross. It says
I am the way and I am the light of

man can vote for whiskey and feel
that he has taken this right road.

so you can go any way you wish to
go, it will carry 3 ou straight but
you can't carry it crooked. It
don't go by the bar room, the ball
room and I don't think you will find

room that you probably will find
them ihere. All roads will lead to
torment but this straight way. All
others lead to hell, but when you
get there you won't be able to find
one road that 3011 can get away
from it. Not one road to get out
on, so keep on the right road.
Mothers are teaching their littie
children as they sit around the fire
side, as they climb around on their

boys to their breast to hate whiskey
more and love it less, while the

Glorious Revival Meeting.

Mr. Editor: We have just closed
a very glorious meeting of the
Parksville Baptist church, having
an addition of 2C by confession, and
it was a very impressive sight to see
these young men and young ladies
go through the ordinance of bap
tism, acknowledging their Master
and stepping out on the right side.
We feel that, we are very fortunate
in being blessed with such a conse
crated pastor, Rev. Joh o F. War
ren, who, with the assistance of
Rev. Williams, of Augusta did
some faithful and plain preaching
during our protracted meeting.
Misses Nona and Caddie Rob
ertson of Augusta who spent a part
of their summer holidays at the
home of their kinsman, Mr. and
Mrs. H. M. Robertson, returned to
their home yesterday.
Prof. and Mrs. Lide came itt one
day last week and will keep house
while teaching here. School will
will open Monday Sept. 13th.
We all certainly feel well repaid
for going out to hear Hon. Joseph
G. Camp make his prohibition lec
ture which was convincing and we
believe Parksville will go unani
mously for prohibition.
