pleasure to attend the Saturday ses

division which was held at Stevens

in the division were represented and
made encouraging reports as to every
phase of the church life. Rev. H. B.
White, the pastor of the church,, was
the only minister present, Dr. Jones
being prevented from attending on ac

on account of a previous engagement
which he had made to assist in a
meeting at Kingstree. Mr. M. B.

Practically all of the topics arranged
for Saturday were discussed. Where
the appointed speakers were absent
other brethren present supplied their
places. Saturday's session was re
garded by all presentas a very profita
ble one. It certainly afforded much
genuine pleasure to the writer who al
ways enjoys attending services at
Stevens Creek and mingling with the
good people of that community. There
is scarely a tree or stone or foot of
ground about the churchyard that does
not suggest some sweet" and hallowed
association of our boyhood days.
The Stevens Creek congregation dis
pensed the whole-souled hospitality
that they have been accustomed to ex
tend to their guests through the years
of the past. The dinner, which was
bountiful and almost endless in a varie
ty, was ample for several hun
dred more than were present.
We were unable to attend the Sun
day services but have been informed
that two deacens, Mr. W. M. Ransom
and Mr. E. G. Lewis, were ordained,

The McDuffie literary society was
called to order by the president,
Friday.April 28. Quite a large num
ber were present and the program
was unusually interesting. The first
number was current events, Lucile
Reel. She had a splendid collection
of news topics and high school
tips. Cleora Thomas read a very
amusing selection which was fol
lowed by a recitatien by Annie Mae
Culbreath. She is very talented
along this line, and each member
enjoyed her reading to the utmost.
The next number on the program
was the debate. Resolved: "That
President Wilson is pursuing the
wrong policy toward Germany."
This was a universal cpiestion and
a very live one. The debaters were
affirmative, Emmie Broadwater,
Carroll Rainsford. Negative, Mar
garet May, Douglas Ti m merman.
All the papers were splendid and
showed that each person had stud
ied quite diligently "on the subject.
Brooke Jones, Pendleton Gaines
and Glover Tompkins were appoint
ed to act as judges and their decis
ion was rendered in favor of the
negative, rho following subject for
debate at the next meeting was
adopted: Resolved, "That President
Wilson is pursuing the wrong
course in sending soldiers into
Mexico to capture Villa." A vote j
was passed in favor of the McDuffie j
literary society having another dec
lamation and recitation contest at
the end of the year. After the re
port of the critic the society ad
journed -to meet Friday, May 12.
