Medal Contest at Johnston.
Edgetield was represented at
Johnston on Simd iv night at the
medal contests by Dozier Tompkins,
Corrie Cheatham, Julian Mime and
William Jones in the cold medal
song contest and by Mitchell Wells
in the declamation contest for the
silver medal. Mrs, J. L. Mims, Mrs.
Mamie N. Tillman and Miss Patti
Major accompanied the boys and
swirls to Johnston.
In the song contest, Dozier Tomp
kins received very houorable men
tion and Mitchell Wells won the
medal for oratory over some yery
Billy Sunday a Great Evangelist.
Occasionally a critic will rise to
make derogatory remarks concern
ing the great evangelist, Billy Sun
day, and his work. For several
years wre have read much of the
work of this servant of God as he
has labored here and there over the
country and have always been im
pressed in his favor. Not until
Saturday afternoon laat have we had
an opportunity to make a first-hand
estimate of this great preacher.
The writer sat for more than an
hour in the large tabernacle in Wash
ington, where he was .just
closing an eight weeks' campaign
and heard every, syllable that he ut
tered. Our opinion of Billy Sun
day is still favorable. Of course,
he says and does things in his own
way. But if he didn't he would not
be Billy Sunday. It requires dif
ferent types of preachers and teach
ers to reach and save different types
of men. Just as the Lord chose the
impulsive and impetuous Peter along
with John, the Apostle of love in
the days of his person:.' ministry,
so be to-day needs men of widely
different manners and employing al
together different methods to reach
men. We believe the Lord has
called Billy Sunday to be a laborer
in his vineyard just as surely as he
called the fisherman, the collector
of customs or 'the tent maker of
"Bible times," as we frequently re
fer to the early period of Christian
activities. Be very slow to place
your finite stamp of disapproval
upon a man whose labors bear the
stamp of approval of the Infinite.
Marion A. Wright at Harmony.
Many friends at Johnston, Tren
ton and Edgetield and other points
in our county will be delighted to
hear that Marion A. Wright will
deliver a lecture at Harmony church
at S o'clock on the evening of the

Marion Wright is now a student
in law at the University of South
Carolina and is on the extension
work of the university. It has been
a number of .years since he was a
boy in Edgetield county. When we
knew him then he iwas winning all
the prizes in the county in the W.
C. T. U. essay contests, and later
at the University he was winning rn
in all the oratorical contests.
Now, after a long absence he is
I coming back to his own, and the
subject of his address will be "By
Products of the War."
Everybody is invited to attend
this occasion at Harmony on the
25th, and we are sure many will be
anxious to go.
