We Ret? Oak Grove people do
not fully resolve to give up that our

Saturday last was very pleasantly

A platform and seats were arranged

ful hearing to all of the candidates
who spoke. The first presented
were Mr. Nicholson and Mr. Wells

by Mr. Evans, Mr. Walker and Mr.

furnished by the good people of
Trenton and vicinity. In addition
to the regular picnic menu, barbe
cue hash was nerved in great abun

refreshed hundreds of visitors. The
people of Trenton proved them
selves to be most charming hosts
and ?hostesses and their beautiful
hospitality was sincerely apprecia

have heard a great number of ex
pressions commending the Trenton
people for their lavish hospitality
on this occasion.
After dinner the candidates for

A Pleasant Night Spent at Ro
On the way to Hardys for the
Sunday meeting, Saturday night
was spent in the delis htful and
hospitable country home of Mr. D.
E. Lanham where the four daught
ers, Misses Emmie, Lila, Minnie
and Grace are the life and joy. Miss
Emmie has been teaching for sev
eral years and is the efficient super
intendent of the Young Woman's
Auxiliary of Edgetieid association.
She is making an effort now to build
a new school house at Ropers
A'\9i Lila has taught for severa,
years, for the past year and the
coming year in the eastern section
of our state, and Miss Minnie is one
of the most promising students of
Coker College, entering this com
ing session, her junior year. Miss
Grace is still tuo young to go away
to school, but is preparing: for the
Music and happiness and useful
service are all a part of this happy
home. Mr. Lanham is one of the
most honored citizens of our coun
ty aud deserves that all these
members of his household and his
sons in the homes adjoining should,
as they are doing, make the hori
zon bright in his tater years.
The home is an ideal one, com
fortable and convenient and with a
splendid view of theencircling hills,
and a car to transport the young
people when they desire to make au
exit from the home roof tree.
Ropers has a store under the di
rection of Mr. Robert Timmerman,
and the school is also located here.
The Presbyterians at one time had
a church here, and the building
still stands, furnished, but the con
gregation has scattered and remov
ed to other places, so that no eer
vices are held there at the present
time. This church was built du
ring the successful pastorate of Dr.
Morris while he was a resident of
Edgetieid. Mr. Lanham lives about
a mile and a half from Ropers
' . Splendid Day 'at Hardy's.
The annual revival meeting be
gan at Hardys church on Sunday
morning last when Rev. P. B. Lan
ham filled the pulpit and preached
from the text, "Deny yourself,
take up your cross and follow me."
The exposition of this scripture was
comforting, and encouraging to
Christians to re-consecrate them
selvas to the higher Christian life.
Mr. Lanham mentioned that 16
young men and women had
been baptized as a result of the
excellent meeting in which Rev. T.
H. Posey assisted.
At the conclusion of the sermon
the announcements for the afternoon
were made, and the recess for din
ner took place. This was very de
lightfully spent in conversation with
the friends whom we had not seen
in a long time, and in making new
and interesting acquaintances. The
afternoon session was given over to
the Womans Mission Society, Mr.
Lanham annouueingthe programme.
Mrs. J. L. Mims was called upon
and gave some facts as to the Wo
mans Work in the Edgefield asso
ciation from 1873 to the present
time, and in stressing the impor
tance of reaching the standard of
Excellence. Miss Beatrice Stevens
sang a solo, "Make me a channel
of Blessing," appropriately selected
for the subject of the afternoon.
"Missions in Europe" was the
theme of avery helpful talk by Mrs.
Mamie N. Tillman.
Following this, Miss Georgia
Reese, secretary of the society made
the 2nd annual report which was
Mr. J. L. Mims was called upon
to talk, and responded with some
encouraging facts concerning the
importance of the country church.
There were representatives at
Hardys from many sections of our
county, from North Augusta, and
the city of Augusta, including many
young people. So pleasant was the
occasion and so loath were we all
to leave, that the longdistance was
forgotten and we did not leave the

Sermon by Pastor in Morn

Sunday was a lovely dav and
there was a fine congregation at
Hardy's for the opening clay of the
protracted meeting. I do not know
when I have been so surprised or
delighted as when we walked np to
the front, there sat Mrs. J. L.
Minis, Mrs. Mamie Tillman, Misses
Florence Mims and Sallie Ham
mond. We speak of Miss Sallie be
cause she is one of our dear
friends. We were so glad to see ber,
but of course she was not with Mrs.
Mims' party. After dismissal we
also found Mr. Mims was there.
We are always glad to see these
splendid people among us and hear
their inspiring addresses. Each of
the three Mr. and Mrs. Minis and
Mrs. Tillman gave us a talk on
mission work, which we enjoyed so
much and hope they did not finP
the journey too long to risk coming
again soon and by all means we
hope to have them all with us next
August for the W. M. U. which
will meet with the Hardy's mission
ary society. We want them to re
member their promise to us, they
are to spend one night with us.
While we would be delighted to
have them longer we will not be
selfish, for there are others who
want them also.
Rev. P. B. Lanham spent Sunday
night with Mr. and Mrs. Harry
