Times and Democrat prbse voting con
test The lady who'does the most
successful work In getting new sub
scribers or Inducing old oneB to renew J
?will win tha Piano. Now at the'
start every lady has the same oppor
tunity to win it.
So with the Sewing Machines. If
you miss the Piano you may win the
Sewing Machine that is to be given
s.way in your district. But evan this Is
?ot all. Should you fail to win eith
er the Piano or the Sewing Machine,
there is still another chance to win
a handsome Dinner Set.
The way to win is easy. But the
first best hint for success is to start
-today, right now, this very minute.

gard, while bad luck and failure
house with that class. Hit while the

sparks fly. So work with a will if
you want to win a prize.
If you do not thoroughly under
stand the rules of the contest write
or call at The Times and Democrat
and they will be explained to you.
As we have said before the only way
to secure votes Is get new tubscrlb
ers for The Times and Democrat or
get old ones to renew. We give

The large circulation it has shows
thai: The Times and Democrat is the
most popular newspaper in Orange
burg County. It is not hard to get
people to subscribe for it, or get
those who now take it renew their
subscription. That is the testimony
of those who tried it, and ic will be
yours If you give it a trial.
Do not forget your friends; you
have many and there is a possibility
that you might forget some of them
until it is too late. It is an excellent
plan to make a list o! all you think
might help you and when a fresh
name occurs to you jot It down on
this list so that no opportunity may
Get right after prospective sub
scribers before they make promises
to some one else. Do not think you
fan exhaust the possibilities in an af
ternoon or In a month. The field is
a large one and you will find that
the last tyeek of the contest will still
hold out many opportunities. So
. work to the last day.
!?t not accept uo a final answer it
the negative, "I am a subscriber."
Present subscribers are our best
friends and yours to. Have them
give you renewal orders to begin at
the time expiration of their present
oubscription even though it be a year
or two hence. Our patrons will con

restricted In your work to any partlc
nlar district. You may secure sub
scriptions and coupons wherever you
choose and can. Any of the prizes
are worth your best efforts. You can
do some very effective work right at
the beginning and the success of your
first month's work will urge you to
greater efforts later. So get to work
at once, and keep everlastingly at it
until the end of ^he contest, and suc
cess is very apt to crown your ef
forts. Your friends will be glad to
help you on to success.
Death of an Editor.
Mr. Henry Arthur Whitman, age
6!>, librarian of the supreme court
and editor of the Farmers' Union
Sun, died in Columbia on Saturday
at his home, of chronic heart dis
ease. He held the degrees of bach
elor of arts and master of arts from
the University of Georgia, bachelor
of divinity from the Southern Baptist
Theological Seminary and Master of
Arts from. Harvard. He leaves his
wife, formerly Miss McCants of Co
lumbia, and one daughter, Zaida,
?wife of Mrs. Herman Spahr, United
States consul at Breslau, Germany.
Mr. Whitman at one time was editor
of the Columbia Record.
Fine Fire Brick Soil.
The St. Matthews correspondent of
The State says: "0. F. Murph, a
tbrify farmer of thin place, exhibited
on the streets today specimens of a
fire brick which he just recently had
made from a soil which he has discov
ered on his plantation near here.
The soil is of a very bright yellow
and works into a perfect brick. This
brick is such as I? used in facing
furnaces an I fireplaces as a guard
against destruction from heat. Mr.
Murph has about 12 acres of this
soil. Ho will look into the matter
of utilizing this valuable property."
Made a Close Guess.
It will be remembered that some
time ago Willi im Houseal published
in the papers some weather forecasts
and among them that on or about the
14th of November that our first kill
fing frost might be looked for. He
came in one of it. Our first frost of
the abr e kind came on the 13th.
That is much better guessing than
eome other weather forecasters do.
Fall of Sleet and Snow.
There was a slight fall of sleet and
snow on Tuesday night throughout
this section. It seems to have been
heavier over in the Fork section than
in this city. This ic the first fall of
snow or sleet that has taken place in
Shis section this winter.
Woman's Foreign Missionary Socie
ties of the City Held Meeting.
An inform:, call -was made early
in November that the officers of the
Foreign Missionary Societies of all
the churches in our city meet and
formulate a plan to hold a jubilee
meeting. We met at the Baptist par
sonage, and Mrs. Davis was requestea
to act as chairman of the meeting.
After appointing committees, It was
decided that Wednesday, November
22nd, be observed as the jubilee.
With the aid of an able corps of as
sistants our chairman prepared a fine
At the preliminary meeting It was
decided that wo request the pastors
of the several churches to begin our
jubilee by preaching a sermon touch
ing on Missions on the Sunday be
fore the 22nd of November.
Wednesday afternoon, a fairly rep
resentative audience assembled at St.
Paul's Methodist church. Mrs. Davis
called the meeting to order, and in a
few well-choaon words told us of the
purpose and aim of our coming to
gether. It is a momentous time, a
time of rejoicing and a time of re
sponsibility to each one before her.
Mrs. Davis requested the ladies to
respond to the call, and asked that a
few brief voluntary prayers be of
fered In thanksgiving. Several pray
ers were made in response to the
request. The chairman then read a
very able paper, tracing the begin
ning of the Foreign Mission move
ment down to the present day. After
which the devotional exercises were
led by Mrs. A. S. Jennings of St.
Paul's Methodist church. Suitable
hymns were rendered by a well-se
lected choir of ladies from each
church, during tha further exercises.
IMrs. W. L. Gla;:e read a fine paper
on the life and work of Mrs. T. C.
Doremus, of New York. Mrs. Do
remus was an untiring worker, In
every good work of her day. Her
prayer was that she could know that
a Foreign Mission Society could be
founded by women, for women, under
the guidance of women, and in the
good providence of God her prayer
was answered. The first organized
Board of Missions, was chartered, un
der her supervision and the meeting
to organize was held in her home.
Mrs. Doremus led in all good work,
first a good wife, a good mother, a
notable Christian woman.
In years of feebleness, in the year
1860, she lived to see the full fruition
of her prayers, In the establishment
of the united Board of Foreign Mis
sions, and today we celebrate the
fiftieth anniversa-.- of that birth. Af
ter the reading, ft choir of little girls
trained by Mrs. McLees of the Pres
byterian church and Mrs. Holmes of
the Episcopal church, sang beautiful
ly "The Son of God Goes Forts, to
War." iMiss Baskerville of Presby
terian church gave us a well-pre
pared article on the opportunity of
the young people. She said we had
long been praying for open doors.
-oors wc?2 tung wide open and
now the prayer should be for open
pocket books to enter the many doors
that are awaiting our coming. ?
Mcs. McLees sang a beautiful and
appropriate number, after which Miss
Barnes, editor Young Christian
Worker, was introduced. In her own
Inimitable manner her address was
filled with facts and figures going to
show what had been done in fifty
years .by women for women in for
eign lands. Her forceful words will
linger long in the memony and hearts
of those assembled. Wo were lead
in prayer by Mrs. Davis and as wo
wended our way homeward we felt
that it was good to have been there.
THE REV. S. D. BAILEY.
The Greatly Beloved Methodist Pas
tor at BranchviUe.
The Branchvllle Journal says:
"Rev. S. D. Bailey, pastor of the
Branchvllle Circuit, leaves Tuesday
next for Bennettsville, S. C, where
he will attend the annual meeting of
the South Carolina conference. Mr.
Bailey will be gone about a week.
Mr. Bailey has served as pastor of
the four churches of the Branchvllle
charge for the past year.
"Since making his home here he
has won the love and respect of not
only the memberB of his churches but
of every citizen of this section of
every creed. He Is a fearless preach
er, a kind and considerate pastor
and a staunch friend. His Influence
for good is felt throughout this com
munity and all hope that the con
ference will i send him back to
BranchviUe to serve the full time
the rules of his church allow, which
is four years.
"However while here Mrs. Bailey
has been unwell a great deal and it
is feared that the low country does
not agree with hor. For this reason
!*? may be that Mr. Bailey may bej
placed In another field. But if he
and his admirablo wife are trans-J
ferred the regret here will be earnest
and general, and it is still hoped
that they may find it possible to re
turn for at least another year."

SHOULD BE OBSERVED
SOME THOUGHTS ON THE GREAT
Reasons Why We All Should Remem
ber Thanksgiving Day and Re
Thankful to God.
Of all our national holidays none Is
more universally or more joyously
celebrated than that of Thanksgiving
Day. Though of New England origin
and for many years confined almost
exclusively to that section, it 'has
slowly but surely extended itself all
over our great country.
* * ?
The first recorded instance of any
thing in the nature of thanksgiving
in the history of our country is the
fallowing entry in f.n old Bible be
longing to one of the first pilgrims:
"Sonne born to Sus;inna White, De
cember 19th, 1620, at six o'clock
morning. Next day we meet for
prayer and thanksgiving."
* ? *
This, however, is not genera'.lv ac
cepted as the first observer of that na
ture, since it hardly partook of the
character of a general thanksgiving.
But fifteen months after the pilgrims
sailed from Holkad they held a har
vest festival which lasted a week.
This is generally spoken of as the
first Thanksgiving in New England,
but it was not a day set apart by any
* ? *
It is fortunate the world cannot
discern the hidden things of the
heart. There we can store our grief
to ponder over it in our leisure and
give to the world only the smile a
beneficent Providence may impart to
our souls and that will strengthen us
to sing a hymn of Thanksgiving.
While sorrow may reign within, yet
may peace and hope and confiding
trust surround every reader of this
column. Heaven bless you ail this
Thanksgiving Day of 1911.
* ? *
With cheery and appreciatire spir
it, let us celebrate the national holi
day. Let us enjoy it to the full,
from turkey and cranberry sauce to
the good-natured discussion of the
lively municipal contest that is ap
proaching. And with all our table
bounty and good cheer in tho domes
tic circle, let us not forget that the
occasion is peculiarly-one for bright
ening the lives of others loss fortu
nate than ourselves?a day for the
practical but unostentatious bestow
al of charity.
* * *
Thanksgiving Day is the one day
in the year when the nation turns to
heaven in thanks for its preservation.
The life of the nation Is the principal
consideration: not only in life, but
its health, and its preservation In that
condition in which it was established
by the fathers of the country. Men
can. thanK ?o? for their accuraula
tioas or supplicate him to lighten
their burdens, but that Is not the pur
pose of a national thanksgiving. The
nation itself, the political structure1
which was framed and handed down I
?it ia the preservation of this for
which the people are to be thankful
* ? *
The Thanksgiving of a nation is an
act of grace truly impressive in Its
significance. For bountiful crops and
heavy exports, for high wages and in
creasing values, it is well to be thank
ful In so far as these things minis
ter to the life- of the spirit, the mak
ings of manhood, the enriching of the
average experiences. But for tho
enlargement of our ideals, tho rais
ing of the standard of public duty, the
increasing care for the weak and im
mature, the recognition of responsi
bilities higher than the mere piling
up of individual fortunes and a gov
ernment surplus?for these things wo
may well give thanks.
* * *
Thanksgiving Day is peculiarly an
American custom, though there are
some writers who claim that it is not
possible to determine the date of the
first observance. John A. Goodwin,
in his historical review, "The Pilgrim
Republic," is positive, however, that
the first celebration occurred in the
fall of 1621, thia being followed in
1 623 by the first Thanksgiving pro
clamation, by thu governor of Mas
sachusetts. In 1(530 there arrived at
Plymouth 14 vessels, bringing with
them 880 colonists, making tho num
ber nearly 1,200 instead of a mere
300. On July 8, 1630, another
Thanksgiving was held in acknowl
edgement for this accession to the
ranKs of the colonists.
Shooting in Calhoun Connty.
Tho St. Matthews correspondent of
Tho News and Courier says: "An
other score was made on the long roll
of negro shooting scrapes in this
county late Sunday afternoon. Dan
llagood, living on tho farm of Mr.
Jake T. Culclasure, was shot in the
thigh by Dan Walker, of tho same
neigborhood. Mr. Culcla9uro 'phon

Sunday night with tho hope that eith
er the ball or the secret of the shoot

Berkeley Treasurer to Resign.
General regret is being expressed
in Berkeley County over the fact that
Mr. Arthur S. Guyton, who has filled
most acceptably tho position of coun
ty treasurer, has decided to resign his
office somo time during the coming

record for himself as treasurer and
his resignation will be widely re

CALHOUN COUNTY CHAIN GANG.
Negroes Pay Fines and Escape Work
on tho Highways.
The St. Matthews correspondent of
The News and Courier says since the
adjournment of the Criminal Court
there Friday afternoon, thoughtful
citizens have had fresh food for
thought over the eventual outcome
of the chain gang experiment for
Calhoun County. Those who favor
the system most and recognize its
convincing merit as a road builder
are the ones whe ponder the situa
tion with the greatest perplexity. It
has accomplished marvels during its
existence. To speak truly, It does
practically all the road work of tho
county. It Is expensive, but it Is
money well spent.
But the problem Is, "What of its
future?" Or what could take its
place There has been a mild carni
val of crime in this county for some
months among the negr?e?. So much
so that the Calhoun Advance, in a
recent issue, besought the colored
ministers to thunder against existing
conditions from their pulpits. From
these ill winds the chain gang author
ities naturally expecte*. a prosperity
wave in their direction. But "Un
cle" Jess Zeigler, Calhoun's excellent
supervisor, left town late Friday af
ternoon, a sadder and wiser man.
There were sixteen convictions in
the five days' Court, all of whom,
Bave two, were colored. Only five of
these ever landed at the gang, -vhich
was sadly in need'of replenishment.
The fines imposed?net large as a
rule?were promptly paid, with few
exceptions. Many of these culprits
were strongly backed by white people
and a few are said to be out on
bonded appeals until they can scrape
up the cash.
There is a loud and lamentable
wall over existing labor conditions in
this county, but it can be easily seen
by careful observers that labor se
cured under such circumstances in
tensifies, rather than mitigates, pres
ent troubles. In the meantime the
future fate of Calhoun County's chain
gang will be watched with Increasing
Death of Mrs. R. H. Sweeney.
The News and Courier says the
many friends throughout tho State
and in Charleston will bo grieved to
learn of the death of Mrs. Robt. H.
Sweeney, which occurred Thursday
evening, November 23, after a very
short illness of ten days, at the home
of her daughter, Mrs. Jos. L. Stop
pelbein, South Orange, N. J. Mrs.
Sweeny was a Miss Friendly, of Char
leston, wife of Col. R. H. Sweeny,
(former editor of the Summervlllo
Times.) They made their home in
Summerville for many years. Mrs.
Sweeney has visited Orangeburg, and
had friends here who will regret to I
hear of her death. She was a most
estimable Christian woman.
Reward for the Bandit.
So far there has been no clue to
the robbery of the Atlantic Coast
Lino mail train near Columbia, but
the railroad men speak with assur
ance when they say that the man is
sure to he caught. Postofiice Inspec

teresting stories as Mr. Byrnes tells
if he would limber up his tongue and

government for the apprehension of
the robber, and ho will be in the tolls
Boy Knocked Down by Auto.
Monday afternoon a young lad by
