could* do would ho for it to havo thc

with tho CouniKK in tho homo-indeed
tho Baptist would not harm our broth

Wo tako tho above paragraph from tho
columns of tho South Carolina Baptist
of last wcok. Wo deoply fool tho good

nm.de of us by tho editors of that livo
and progrossivo paper, but nt tho saino
timo wo fool that wo do not desorvo
credit fer thc growth of tho Baptist in
tho estimation of tho Baptists in Oconeo

can claim that credit. Their noblo Godly
