"at sea." However, in" due season

definite, using probably all the

The mild weather seems to be fa
vorable fi?r the propagation of po
litical germs. Already county poli
tics is being talked. Mr. Nadie
Cothran, the faithful court crier, is
being uryed to run for the office of
coroner, and it is probable that he
will be a'candidate.
While he has made no positive
announcement to that effect, yet the
impression prevails that Mr. W. G.
Ouzts will he a candidate for sher
iff in the campaign next summer.
He was in town Monday shasing
hands with his friends, being coi
dial ly greeted by those|rliere as we!
as friends who were here from
different parts of the county.
Dr. B. F. Jones left for Kentucky
M ona.-iv to purchase a lot of choice
mules and horses. By reason of bis]
technical training and experience as
a veterinarian. Dr. Jones is a splen
did judge of livestock, which will
enable him to buy to the best pos-]
sible advantage. His horses and
mules will arrive the latter part of
this week or early next week.
Dr. E. Pendleton Jones has come
into possession of a goose and,
judging from the way she makes |
the welkin ring early every morn
ing with her "qua." ''qua," she
must be a suffragette after the most
militant type. We are afraid this

Mr. L. Hunter of Oxford, N. C.,
spent a part of last week with Mr.

considerable experience in the past
in the mercantile business.

Laymen's Missionary Conven
The South Carolina Convention
of the Second National Missionary
campaign is to be held in Colum
bia, S. C., February 6,7, 8, 9, 1916\
Since the fir?t National campaign,
h*ild in 190^-1910, there have been
many significant cha ges through
out the universe. Just at this time
practically the entire world, in power
and in miaht, is engaged in devas
tating war. Nation after nation is
engaged in a death struggle, and
hate stalks abroad. As these words
are written, our United States of
America is the only world power at
peace with all nations; and, as a di
rect result of this situation, we are
facing, at home and abroad, the
greatest opportunities for service
ever presented to us. It is impor
tant that the laymen of our State
should assemble again to consider in
a practicably and comprehensive
way the general interests of the
Kingdom to face the special oppor
tunities confronting ns, and to plan
to meet and faithfully discharge Our
obligations to evangelize the world;
in short, to "Enlist for World Ser
The purpose is threefold: Inform
ation, inspiration and method.
The object of the convention is to
furnish information about the work
we should do, to strengthen our
convictions that we can do it, and
to present methods by which it can
Men who are in closest touch with
our missionary work at home and
abroad will bring first hand inform
ation from the field. Men who are
grappling with the policies of ad
ministration and methods will con
tribute their thoughts and experi
ences, business men of large means,
who have made large investments in
the extension of the kingdom, and
men on small salaries, but with a
high standard of stewardship, will
join in the discussion.
A provisional program will be an
nounced through the press and dis
tributed through the mails as soon
as practicable. No effor: will be
spared ?o secure the most effective
missionary speakers available.
Team "C," the designation-of the
group of speakers of the South Car
olina Conventioi-, will give special
attention to denominational confer
ences to be held in the afternoon of
each day. In these meetings will
be considered the main "objectives"
of the missionary plans of the dif
ferent denominations. These meet
ings are meant to afford opportu
nity for a definite presentation of
denominational purposes and of
plans for their realization.
The sessions will be held in the
auditorium of the Jefferson hotel,
with overflow accommodations pro
vided for in the Arsenal Hill Pres
byterian church and the main street
Methodist church, both of which
are within a block of the conven
The convention will open on Sun
day, February 6, 1916, at 3:00 p.
m., and will continue through Wed
nesday night. Every delegate should
be present at all the sessions, if pos
sible. While attendance at single
sessions is worth while, the^ cumu
lative effect of the program is lost
by irregular attendance.
The committee is planning defi
nitely for the registration of three
thousand men. No limitations are
made on the representation of de
nominations or of congregations,
every denomination and every con
gregation being entitled to as many
delegates as desire to attend.
The convention will be self-enter
taining, each delegate being expect
ed to provide for his own expenses.
Arrangements will be made so that
rooms may be reserved in advance
at the lowest possible rates. Dele
gates have the choice of hotels,
boarding houses and private homes
of persons willing to rent rooms
during the convention. When pre
ferred, rooms may be secured and
meals had at restaurants or hotels.
Visiting ministers and pastors will
be entertained in the homes of the
church people of Columbia and will
not be charged a registration fee.
The Virginia-Carolina Passenger
Association has granted a round
trip rate to the Convention of one
and a third fare plus twenty-five
cents. This is the same rate granted
to the Southern commercial Con
gress, and is the very best rate the
railroads grant to any convention.

A 1916 Thought.
If you think you are beaten you are,
If you think you dare not you don't,
If you'd like to win, but you think you
It's almost a cinch vou won't
If you think you'll lose you're lost,
tor out of the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will;
lt's all in the state of mind.
If you think you're outclassed you are;
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself be
You can ever win a prize,
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But soon or late the man who wins,
ls the one who thinks he can.
