that up to this time this season he has
weighed 650 bales of cotton, while
last season for the same time he had
weighed 2,300 bales. This gives some
idea of the curtailed yield.
The heaviest damage done thus

twenty-three acres he will pick only

Sermon to Butler Council?.
Sunday morning Rev. G. W. [ M.
Taylor preached a very earnest jand
inspiring sermon to the members' of
Butler Council, Junior Order Unijbed
American Mechanics. There were
about thirty-five members present
and the closest attention was giyen
throughout the discourse to their fel
low member who spoke from the pul
pit. After welcoming this body of
men to his church in a very cordial
manner, Mr. Taylor announced, that
his text would be found in/Matt.
16:18: 'Thou art Peter and yfpon this
rock I will build my church." Peter
means "rock" but there is no con
nection between the name^ of this dis
ciple and the great foundation upon
which Christ established his church.
Mr. Taylor stated that it is folly for
any sect to claim that Peter holds the
keys to heaven and that no one can
gain admission except as he shall
open the door. He said there is noth
ing in scripture to assure us that
God's Kingdom is founded upon any
Christ and his disciples were alone
at the time this incident occurred and
He asked some very searching ques
tions. After asking what men in gen
eral thought of him, Christ put this
direct and very searching question
to His disciples, " But whom say ye
that I am," and Peter answered,
'Thou art the Christ, the Son of the
living God." Mr. Taylor said we find
in this answer that which will enable
one to make good in the moral and
spiritual world, and if. he does not
make good in that he will fail in all
else. When any. other standard is ac
cepted pitfalls and downfalls inevi
tably come in the life of every man.
Men who are building only on ma
terial foundations will fail utterly. It
matters not what may be one's in
tellectual endowments, if wanting in
spiritual life, he will come to naught.
Mr. Taylor emphasized the fact that
a mere ritual will not sustain a fra
ternal order, but that which has been
inspired in the hearts of its members
will give our country the highest type
Mr. Taylor emphasized the great
ness of Peter. Made great by his im
plicit faith as indicated by his reply,
"the Son of the living God." He said
marvelous influence, happiness and
power accompanies such a confes
sion. A willingness to confess Christ
and make a clean breast will make
any man great. He said that it is al
together essential that we have faith
in Christ and build our lives upon His
teachings. When we once possess
Him it is the greatest possession that
can be gained.
Mr. Taylor's excellent sermon was
very effectively delivered and those
whose good fortune it was to be pres
ent were inspired by it to live upon
a higher, nobler plane.
U. D. C. Meets With Mrs. P. P.
The October meeting of the U. D.
C., with Mrs. P. P. Blalock, Jr., was
a very enjoyable one. Mrs. J. W.
Wright, president, was in the chair.
The business session dispensed with
a number of items, after which came
the election of officers. The president,
Mrs. Wright, vice-president, Mrs. Bet
tsi Cantelou, corresponding secretary,
Miss Sophie Minis, recording secre
tary, Miss Sophia Dobson, treasurer,
Mrs. R. A. Marsh and recorder of
crosses, Mrs. S. B. Nicholson, were
unanimously re-elected, their efficien
cy and loyalty as officers being voiced
in the moves made for their election
Two new officers, Mrs. J. H. Cante
lou, assistant historian, and Mrs P.
P. Blalock, Jr., registrar, add great
ly to the splendid roster.
In recognition of the loyal service
to the chapter rendered by Mrs. A. A.
Woodson, whom the daughters have
made historian for life, it was unani
mously carried to pay all the histo
rian's dues hereafter out of chapter
funds. Great appreciation of Mrs.
Woodson's untiring efforts for the
cause she loves so well, through the
chapter she long has faithfully moth
ered, was expressed by the members.
Mrs. Wright called a meeting of
the officers and several other mem
bers to be held at Mrs. A. E. Pad
gett's Thursday of next week.
Committees are to be named who
are to aid the president in her en
thusiastic plans to make the winter's
work valuable. A special program
committee, to work with the assist
ant historiann, Mrs. J. H. Cantelou,
will insure good historical work. .
Delegates to the State Convention
in Batesburg were elected as fol
lows: Mrs. B. B. Jones, Mrs. A. E.
Padgett; alternates, Mrs. Helen Nich
olson, Mrs. R. A. Marsh and Mrs. P.
After the business session was
completed Mrs. P. M. Feltham read
the splendid paper which had been
prepared by Mr. Francis B, Simkins,
and is one of the most valuable his
torical papers ever possessed by the
.chapter, replete with true data, glean
ed by this brilliant young scholar of
whom Edgefield is justly proud. It
was decided to publish this article in
both the county papers, giving to our
people at large, an opportunity to
j enjoy the masterly discourse.
Mrs. A. R. Nicholson assisted with
the serving of a chicken salad course,
which concluded the most profitable
and enjoyable meeting.
