Wednesday, April 5.
Meetings at Horns Creek and
Sunday was a beautiful day for
the visit of the Baptist ministers who
came into the association in the in
terests of the 75 Million Campaign.
Perhaps rews will come in from all
the churches where the meetings
were held, but the writer had the
privilege of attending the churches at
Horn's Creek and Republican. ,
.Colonel S. B. Mays and Mr. Harris
came into Edgefield to meet Dr. C.
E. Burts at the station Sunday morn
ing and the trip was made first to
Horn's Creek; Here a very represen
tative congregation of men and wo
men gathered, Rev. P. B. Lanham
presiding and encouraging the enter
Dr. C. E. Burts made a splendid
address on the fundamentals which
he said were more important than
the 75Million, and were back of it
and necessary to its accomplishment.
He stressed the importance of sys
tematic giving in a detailed and
forceful way, acording to the New
Testament plan, and said that this
was the only way that our people
could now meet their obligations. He
gave concrete examples of how small
amounts given regularly would be
come great' sums in the aggregate,
one example being the originator of
the Esquimo Pie, who almost in a
night had become a millionaire, and
these pies cost but ten cents.
The matter of the church budget
was discussed and the church adopt
ed its use.
The ladies of Horn's Creek had
prepared a ranch which was served
on the tables and greatly enjoyed by
all who were fortunate enough to be
From Horn's Creek we were the
guests of Rev. P. B. Lanham and his
son Willie Lanham, stopping at Mr.
Lanham's home where we were join
ed by Mrs. P. B. Lanham and Mr. and
Mrs. Joe Lanham in their car.
Republican is one of the most prom
ising churches in the association in
the number of intelligent, high toned
men and,womenof the neighborhood
and the number of young people and
children. Dr. Burts has a fine mem
memory, as was exemplified by his
remark as he arose to speak at Re
publican, that he saw the church had
recently been remodelled and im
proved for which he expressed appre
ciation saying also that the church
was beautiful for situation. In vis
iting so many hundreds of churches
similar in construction and situation
it is marvellous that he could remem
ber such details. I
Mr. Lanham also presided here,
and Mr. John Atkinson was called on
to lead hi prayer.
. Dr. Burts had a good audience
from the standpoint of numbers, and
a very appreciative one. His address
was a differene one from that of the
morning. He was very sympathetic in
what he said, on account of the finan
cial conditions, but said he found
Edgefield county much better off than
he had expected. The success of his
.remarks was proven by the enthusi
asitic adoption of the budget or en
; Miss Lucile Miller acted as organ
ist and the choir was filled with
?right young people who sang' well.
Mr. Willie Lanham transported the
.party back to Edgefield after the
meeting, and he and Dr. Burts dis
cussed farming, chicken raising and
their European tour, especially the
Mediterranean Sea and the countries
on its shores. Dr. Burts returned to
Columbia Sunday night.
The roads from Republican were
very good all the way to Edgefield,
and the fine grain was remarked on
by Dr. Burts as we passed along.
