NOTICE!-The meeting indicated by
this program is an interdenominational i
meeting, and every worker in every
white Sunday school in Edgef?eld county
?3 urgently requested to attend. The
Edgefield County Sunday School Asso
ciation is auxiliary to the South Caro,
lina Sunday School Association, which
is a co-operative e flo rt on the part of
all denominations to improve Sunday
school conditions and Sunday school
workers. It advocates the latest and
best methods of Sunday school work,
and stands only for those interests that
are common to Sunday schools of all
denominations. The plans and methods
suggested by this association are prac
ticable for all Sunday schools, as they
do not touch on church doctrines. The
work is by way of suggestion, not by
authority; therefore, it helps many, it
hinders none. The object is helpful
and brotherly co-operation, not organic
union. The officers of the association
are leading [Christian business men of
all evangelical denominations.

Senator Tillman's Big Boy.
Editor Advertiser:-I attended
the commencement at Clemson Co?
lege last week. I was at Rock Hill
some time ago to see the Senator's
Bit: Gal. Well, I must say that the
girl and hoy are hard to beat. Sena
tor Tillman is the father of these
two institutions ot learning; hence I
call them his children.
If I could use tim pen of a ready
writer, I would write up Clemson
just as it now is. The faculty has
sent out a pen picture ot the college.
Clemson College is located in Ooo
nee county, at the foot-hills of the
Blue Ridge mountains, on the home
stead ol' John C. Calhoun, and later
of his son-in-law, Thos. G. Clemson.
It is 800 feet ahove sea level. At a
distance of twenty miles can be seen
range after range ol' mountains, the
home of the Highlands, Ceasar's
The college tract contains over
1,500 acres. Its inventoried prop
erty is 8l,3'27,728.57. There are
many stately buildings placed at el
evated points, forming a great ir
regular circle. Enclosed in this cir
cle is a beautiful grove ot' native
oaks and hickory trees, threaded by
smooth drive-walks. The whole
grove of thousands of native trees
are covered with green grasses,
which makes Clemson beautiful fur
After walking all over the grounds,
the agricultural department, the cat
tle and dairy farm, thc grape vine
yard and the greenhouse, where the
roses never fade, and where tho
dowers never oease to bloom, I
simply had to exclaim, with the
Queen of Sheba, "the half had never
been told about the glory,'aud beauty
of this wonderful" plant.
I looked in the faces of about 800
of as fine looking young men as you
will find in any college in the South.
Out of that number 118 graduated
with honor. Looking at that bunch
of tine looking, healthy young men
just entering upon the great sea of
time, I Raid, "My Country, 'Tis of
Thee I Sing."
Nature has done a great deal for
Clemson. I wish every South Car
olinian could come and see for them
selves. If I had a cow pen full of
boys I would send them to this col
lege to be trained for their life
I heard an old cracker say, while
there: "It takes too much money to
run this thing; and then there is no
Christian influence here." I said,
look at those church men before
your eyes. You 'don't know what
you are talking about.
I believe this is the healthiest
county in the State.
I said to a friend tho other day
that Senator Tillman was the father
of Clemson and Winthrop. Ile
said, "No, Thos. G. Clemson was
the father of Clemson College." No,
I said, yon cannot deny the fact.
This is Uncle Ben's Big Boy and
the Winthrop is his Big Pretty Gal.
While I know that he has done a
great deal far South Carolina sime
he has been in public office, but 1
look upon these two colleges as the
greatest achievement ol' his life.
I hope the old hero will live on and
on until he reaches a hundred years.
Now, if you fellows don't believe
what I have said about Uncle Ben's
Big Boy, ask .Mr. John .Mays and
his good wife and their three sons,
who were there several days. You
are oldige to take their testimony to
be the truth, and nothing but the
Clemson College is an honor to
the State and a blessing to Oconee
When you hear a fellow say, that
the State is giving too much money
to Clemson, you can put it down
that he is talking through his hat,
and using that as a vote catcher
with some people, and that lie has
more bones in his cranium than
J. Russell Wright.

About the middle of the after
noon we reached Gaston ia, the
North Carolina town, or, more
properly, city, that is noted for its
many cotton mills. From this pro
gressive place all faces were turned
to York -?2 miles away. On this par
ticular occasion we were the guest
of Mr. J. Al. Smith,one of thb lead

town in York county. His hand

Thursday night a reception was
tendered the visitors by the people
of York in thc room.' of tl.e White
Rose cl ul?. This occasion gave the
members of the press association an
opportunity to meet and mingle
with many others of the community
whom they lind not hitherto mel.
And a delightful occasion it was in
deed. Iced refreshments and deli
cious punch was served. And just
before the parting beautiful lasses
pinned sweet peas on each one pre
ent. Mere we saw tile social side ol
York, the occasion presenting a
scene of rare diann and beauty and
Friday morning the first business
session of the association was held,
j However, the Ililli meeting was
one in which business was not al
lowed to interfere with pleasure.
I President Banks made his carefully
J prepared report, showing that dur
ing the past year he has been con
stantly on the alert for those things
I that would in any way contribute to
the newspaper and publishing inter
ests in the state.
Several interesting papers were
read at both the Friday morning
an i afternoon sessions, among these
being; a paper on "Preparedness"
by Col. L. W. Cbeatbam which was
well received. Friday afternoon the
following officers were elected for
the ensuing year: President, Wil
liam Banks, editor of the Colum
bia Record; first vice-president, J.
L. Minis; second-vice-president, A.
B. Jordau, of the Dillon Herald;
secretary, Joe Sparks, of The State;
treasurer, Mr. Davies of the Barn

IA,H. Wannamaker of the News
and Courier and Miss Juanita Wy

' "The 1917 meeting will be held in
Beaufort. There were more than
half a dozen invitations but Beau
fort was selected on first ballot.
The piece de resistance of the
York meeting was the address of
Dr. Talcatt Williams, the dean of

of New York, Friday night. This
distinguished journalist also spoke
informally at several of the sessions,

day, a large number of York people
going aiso. A special train of six
coaches, one of them being a de
luxe observation car, was chartered
for the trip over the Carolina and
North Western railroad, The spe
cial train left York at S a. rn. and
arrived at Kdgemont, tiie terminus
of the road, about twelve. Here an
other feast was awaiting the merry
party. Notwithstanding the fact
that all appetites had been whetted
by the fatigue of the journey and
the bracing air, the hospitality of
our channing hosts was equal to the
occisi?n. Meats and sweetmeats
and iced Irin ks and Havana cigars
were dispensed in limitless quanti
ties, and what is l>nst of all every
thing was on this and every other
occasion so beautifully served and
all attentions were so graciously be

the mountain gorges a beautiful
harvest scene would greet the eye,
and maybe a little farther up a
mountain stream would be crossed
j or paralellcd for some miles with
cattle by the scores and scores graz

This constantly shifting scene pre
sented a panoramic picture that
would inspire a poet or artist to
produce a master-piece.
Karly in the afternoon the home

tha n the ascent of the forenoon.
Upon reaching Gastonia, the main
line of the Southern from Charlotte
to Atlanta, many of ?he party left
for their homes in Sparenburg,

Dr. Williams left us for New York.

Words are empty and meaning
less when we attempt to convey any
idea of the beautiful, all-abounding
hospitality of the people of York.
It was needless for them to present
souvenirs-beautiful vanity cases
for the ladies and appropriately en
graved enif links and real leather
.smoking cases for the men-though
highly appreciated was this charac
teristic thoughtfulness, for as the
years come and go our impressions
of historic York, made indelible by
the unceasing attentions and un
bounded hospitality of her cultured
people, will be undimmed. And the
members of the South Carolina
Press association who attended the^
meeting of Iii IG will always be pro
foundly grateful to them-more
grateful than they can ever express
or the York people will ever know.
Anniversary Will be June 23.
On June twenty-third, we celi
bratethe first anniversary of the or
ganization of our Civic League and
Cemetery Association. In that time
we have grown from a dozen wo
men, earnest in their desire for
civic betterment, to sixty-five co
workers. Mothers, wives, daughters
and sisters of the citizens of our
town, all giving their time and best
thought to tho cultivation of higher
As the home keepers of our commu
nity, we feel that we have au indi
vidual responsibility to aid our City
Fathers in the promotion of the
health of our town, in the promo

town, in the preservation and devel
opment of our landscapes, and in
the advanoemeut of our outdoor art.
Civic improvement spells better
business, better business spells more
new comers, more new comers,
spell the national growth of the
town. Surely we have a splendid
moral purpose, as the foundation of
our organization, and the Board of
Directors invites every home in
Edgetield to send a representative
into the Civic League. Our sixty
five members should be hundreds.
Mothers do you wish to do your
part in building a better and
healthier community life for your
boys and girls? Do you wish to aid
in the building of character through
procuring a cleaner, more moral
atmosphere? Do you wish to do
your part in encouraging more beau
tiful town surroundings? Opportu
nity is knocking at our doors. Let
us rise and throw off our lethargy.
VVe feel that our efforts of the past
year have not been in vain. We
have converted our City of the Dead
from a place of weeds, rubbish and
ugliness to one of extreme beauty.
We have had lectures, flower shows
and clean-up weeks, and have en
deavored in all of our undertakings
to cause our people, both young and
old to think along lines of civic
We wish to thank the people of
our community for their splendid

for their co-operation and recent

your continued support and sym

that our organization will become j
