iWand I do not know which kind
of:14ck to look for.
Mr. T. E. McCullough and sister,
4Iss Mattie McCullough, of the
.iollolion section, spent last Friday
$ight with the family of Mr. J. P.
kinard. I regret that my friend
Eak took sick and had to return
home so soon.
Prof. J. J. Hipp spent last Satur
day night with Mr. J. K. Epps and
family. Mr. Hipp has an interest
ing singing class at Bachman Chapel.
He is a master of his profession.
Mr. Editor, I have some local
,legislation I want you to look after.
41 think if I can keep the bright side
tip I ai goiag to look after this ap
proaching legislature. It has been
a lie and cry for gracious knows
how long after the adjournment of
each legislature, "Nothing (one
again, as usual." Nearly every
man has some kind of a petticoat
law he wants enacted for his own
special benefit. One of my friends
who has had a sick wife to contend
with almost the entire year tells me
that he wants the legislature to en
act a law, not in behalf of woman
suffrage, but in behalf of man
"'suffer-age," giving a man the
privilege of having two wives, so
that when one gets sick lie 1will
have one left to attend to the do
mestic affairs as well as to wait on
hii. But how would it do to send
that fellow to Utah? I have other
similar laws which I will mention
later. Mr. Editor, I will delegate
Capt. Banks and yourself to look
after this matter.
* Through the kind invitation of
Mr. L. I. Epting, I went down to
St. Paul's last Sunday to hear the
sermon and lecture of the Rev, and
Mrs. E. C. Cronk, who are travel
ing in behalf of the Atlanta mission.
.1 was very much disappointed when
Sfound that Mrs. Cronk was uin
eble to be present. This was Rev.
r.r. Cronk's first appointment in
*e South Carolina Synod. I think
it the Lutheran workers of the
>rgia Synod have put the right
. to work at the right place, and
'is no further question now
hat the Lutherans are going to
a church in A tlanta in which
ay all take a just pride.
.Mr. Cronk preached quite
teresting sermon. The sub
as taken from a text which is
riate to any occasion: "'Ye
light of the world ;a city that
on a hill cannot be hid.''
:r 4; and also the 1 6th verse:
)ur light so shine before
tthey imay see' your good
nd glorify your l1'athecr
ini heaven."' Th is subject
every individual as; well
urch. But the speaker
erc it was a fatal wrong
:n to go on in their sins
:ebuke them for the sake
Christians shall let their
:by reproving imen of
the most eminent Christians smil
ing on sinful cranks! We shall
also let our light shine by our ex
amples. Not only our children,
but the whole future generation are
patterning after our examples. To
illustrate this he told the story of a
fNther and son who went into a
saloon. The son was asked what
he would have, and he replied, "I'll
take whatever pa takes." And so
the daughters will take whatever
their mothers take. After all we
are laying the foundation on which
the future generation will build. t
Let our acts be ever so sinful they 3
are our light, which is always a
guide to others.
After the sermon Rev. Mr. Cronk
made a short but explicit talk upon t
the work i i which h, is engaged, t
putting it in three divisions: First,
what he had; second, what lie had
not; third, what he must have.
The membership of the church
numbers 6o, and the enrolment in
a very short time will reach 75,
with a Lutheran constituency of
1,000. But those )eople will not
take the proper interest in church
work until the church building is
erected. A collection was taken
and the sum of $18.00 in cash with
a few dollars subscription was raised.
Old St. Paul's congregation will
always be found doing her full duty.
Rev. Mr. Cronk had two other
appointments to meet on Sunday,
one at St. Luke'sF in the evening
and one at Grace church at night.
As I returned home I stopped
and enjoye'd the hospitality of my
old friend, Mr. L. I Epting, and
family for a few hours. Mrs. Epting
is one among ouri noblest good wo
men. She never tires, in making
her guests feel welcome. Mr. Ed
itor, you missed a treat by not turn
ing up, and you caused .us to do
more than justice to our digester in
trying to masticate your part of
