A Day's Outing at West New
I had my usual weekly treat to-day
when I \yent to the First Baptist
Church and heard Dr. Austen Ken
nedy De Blois, the pastor preach on
the? subject of "Christian Fellow
ship." This was a Sunday at which
the Lord's supper was to take place,
He invited people of whatever name
or denomination to remain and com
mune. He said that the church of
Christ was a church of inclusion, not
of exclusion. The churches of to-day
are nearer together than they have
been since the time of St. Paul, but
we are not yet so near together as
we should be, as denominations. An
other of his statements was, that we
must have faith interpreted, not in
terms of intellect, but in terms of
Whenever Dr. De Blois leaves the
city for a trip he tells the congrega
tion all of his delightful experiences
when he returns, so I feel at liberty
to write you some of the wonderful
things I see and hear.
After the church service Ruth
Tompkins, her room-mate and I went
out to West Newton to spend the day
with Mrs. Marshall, Ruth's cousin.
We found a most delightful, home
like reception. After dinner we went
to see some of the sights of the sur
rounding New England country. The
wide lawns arid scattered buildings
seemed like Edgefield. There were in
numerable little picturesque houses
like the prints in magazines that live
Dnly on paper, never on grounds, in
There were hundreds of people
skating on the frozen Charles River.
They were swinging around curves
md losing their balance and catching
it again, and whizzing along over the
glassy surface with incredible ease.
We visited a very interesting
bridge, called the Echo Bridge, aptly
named, for standing by one of the
massive arches and calling across to
the other side, the most uncanny and
fantastic echoes came back like a per
son shouting from the top of the
precipice over the river. From the top
of the high bridge the view was beau
tiful. An old silk mill about one hun
dred years old was situated on the
edge of the river. Silk is now made
there from wood instead of silk.
A Baptist Theological seminary
was another one of the sights of par
ticular interest to me. This was in
Newton Center. Newton seems to be
attached to every town's name in
that part of New England.
We came through the country from
West Newton to Boston late in the
afternoon. From' Prospect Hill we
had an excellent bird's eye view of
the city of Boston. We were so far
above and away from the city that
the great mass of buildings looked
like a huge mosaic of dim yellow and
red and gray. The Harvard Studium
and the Cambridge Bridge, lit with
rows of lights, stood out in the pic
ture. We came down from the heights
into the great seething street of cars
and hurrying people, there to stay
until some other Sunday should beck
on us away from the maddening
crowds of people of which we are but
an inconceivably small part.
Rev. Frank Weaver Gives
Warring and a Tribute to
Please let me have space in your
valuable paper to say a few words a
bout the condition of this country.
We are going through ? great calam
ity, wars on the one hand and pesti
lence on the other. Believe me , this
is the finger of God, writing on the
wall. Let us all draw near unto Him
and hear what He is saying to the
people of long, long time ago.
When the serpent was biting the
people in the wilderness, there was
a remedy, "Look and live." The same
stands good to-day. Jesus said unto
Nicodemus, "As Moses lifted up the
serpent in the wilderness, even so
must the Son of Man be lifted up."
Let us all lift Him up. If each man
will lift Him up in his family, the
world will be saved. Jesus said "If he
be lifted up he will draw all men un
to Himself." Remember Noah preach
ed twenty years and saved only his
family. Let every man try the same
thing, save his family, and the world
will be saved.
"Blessed are the pure in heart, for
they shall see God." "Look and live."
Now, I want to say to the boys as
they return from the battle fields
and from camps. Have respect for
everybody you meet at home and a
broad and stay on the farm. If a man
wants friends, he must show himself
Mr. Editor, please give me space
to speak of one of the greatest men
who ever lived in Edgefield. The rea
son why I say this, I have lived here
and around here for nearly fifty
years and more. I have noticed men
as they walked along the line of life
to see if the town was much better by
their presence or worse, and this man
has been a great and shining light in
this town. The man that I have refer
ence to is the Honorable B. E. Nich
olson. He was a man who was kind to
everybody, regardless of color. He
mastered his profession so well that
he drew men to him by scores. You
could rely on what he said. If the
world was full of such men as he,
race prejudice would be wiped out
and peace would reign throughout
this country. "Blessed are the peace
makers, for they shall be called the
children of God."
He was a man that served with the
people and for the people. Edgefield
county has lost one of its brightest
stars, not only Edgefield, but South
May the good Lord bless his lone
ly family along a life's journey. As
we look over his past life, we can say
as did one of old, "Well done thou
good and faithful servant." Sleep on
and take thy rest. "Mark the perfect
man, and behold the upright, for the
end of that man is peace."
Rev. F. A. Weaver.
