Meeting of Second Division.
The churches of the second di
vision, through the Missionary so
cieties, Young Woman's auxiliaries
and Sunbeams, held a very encour
aging meeting at Rehoboth on Sun
The attendance was good, and
the ladies of Rehoboth had prepared
a magnificent, dinner.
It was a matter of regret that the
division president, Mrs. Julia Pres
cott, was detained on account of ill
ness in the family. Mrs. Prescott,
with her accustomed generosity, had
planned to convey some of the rep
resentatives from Red Hill and
others in her car, but when she
found that she could not attend se

Mrs. J. L. Miras conducted the
meeting in place of Mrs. Prescott,
and the programme was as follows:
The devotions were conducted by
Mrs. A. B. Young of the Red Hill
society, and the welcome was very
cordially given by Miss Lucile Uni
breath, leader of the Rehoboth Sun
beam society, and Mrs. Hammond
of the Red Hill society responded
A roll of societies was called, and
the reports were encouraging, all
societiea being hopeful that their
financial obligations will be met.
The division was highly honored
in having among them Rev. P. B.
Lanham, most of whose churches
were in the second division.
Mrs. Tillman and Rev. P. B.
Lanham made talks on Edisto Acad
A very comprehensive and inter
esting Suubeam talk was made by
Mrs. Tillman, very practical audi
One of the very best numbers on
the programme was Mrs. Whatley's
report of the Western Division In
stitute at Greenwood. Every one
expressed themselves as delighted
with this splendid account.
Miss E ramie Lanham, Y. W. A.
superintendent for Edgefield associa
tion, made a very inspiring appeal
for the cheater success of the work
in which she is so much interested.
After the dinuer hour, a very
pleasing feature of the programme
was a recitation by James Strom,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Strom.
Mrs. Young made a practical talk
on th9 Standard of Excellence, and
Misses Lucile and Annie May Cul
breath sang "0 Morning Laud" as a
The Sunbeams sang "Little Sow
ers Now Are We," accompanied by
their leader. Mrs. Culbreath.
The last number was a demon
stration, ''Excuses Conquered," led
by Mrs. Tillman.
Mrs. B. N. Talbert, president of
the first division, was a welcomed
visitor; aud, also, the Misses Wil
liams of Gilgal society, Dr. and
Mrs. Adams of Plum Branch and
All the ladies were pleased to see
our dear friend and co-worker, Mrs.

"Miss Minerva and WilliamGreen
Now there are coming to oar
town some very distinquished
First of all we know what a great
power, "Boy Scouts" have become
and how much use thev are in these
troublous times. The "Roy Scouts"
of North Augusta are corning over
Friday afternoon in Automobiles,
and they are coming because they
neel funds to carry on their work,
and primarily to make us laugh,
and they will do it too, if we are
in the Opera House Friday evening
from 8:30 to 10 o'clock.
Now turn about is fair play, so
if they come all the way from
North Augusta in automobiles to
make us laugh, we must be there to
make them laugh, for they will
laugh if we are there.
Half of the profits will go to the
I Edgefield W. C. T. U., so they will
also be smiling if you are there, and
everybody will be smiling.
Don't you want to go where
everybody is wreathed in smiles?
This is not all. The "Boy Scouts"
will bring Mis? Minerva and Will
iam Green Hill with them, and
there are no morp celebrated person
ages in these United States of
America than are these two.
Still another celebrity is Rev.
Hamlin Etberedge, pastor of the
North Augusta Methodist church
who is an Edgefield county boy, a
prophet who must not be without
honor in his own county.
Mr. Etberedge is widely travelled
and is leader cf the North Augusta
"Boy Scouts," and he has dramatiz
ed that wonderfully humorous book
"MIPS Minerva and William Green
Hill" and the play has been given a
number of times in their own town
and recently at Trenton and Johns
ston, where large audiences heard
Another coming celebrity, one of
the "Boy Scouts," an Ederefieid boy
and the son of Mr. Philip Markert
whom many Edgefield people know
and honor is Anton Markert, one of
the characters in this play.
Come out Friday night and en
courage the "Boy Scouts" of North
Augusta and the W. C. T. U., and
"laugh and grow fat."
