A Pleasant and Profitable Day at
Trinity-Recitations by the
The editor had the pleasure of at
tending rally day at Trinity in No.
6 on Sunday and mingling with the
good people of this section. The
Methodist church in the south has
set aside one Sunday in the year to
be known as Rally Day for foreign
missions. This was the day observed
at Trinity on Sunday.
Rev. T. E. Beard is the pastor of
Next Sunday the day will be ob
served at Lebanon and the Sunday
following at New Chapel.
A morning and evening service was
held at Trinity on Sunday. At the
morning session an interesting pro
gram was rendered by the children
and a strong and eloquent address de
livered on missions by Dr. George
After an intermission of an hour
for dinner Mr. H. M. Henry made a
fine talk showing the necessity and
the dut- to engage in foreign mission
work. He was followed by Pastor
Beard who said he had been in the
ministry for twenty-three years and
had ne-er failed to carry up to con
ference the assessment of his charge
for this cause, and that the Newberry
circuit would not fail him. It de
\veloped that one of the churches had
raised the amount and had a surplus
and that the others would be ready
by conference with the small balances
yet to be raised. It was a good show-!
ing. The following is the program
by the children which was most hap
pily rendered by all. the children

and instructive manner. Miss Eula

This is a good section of Newberry
county. The farmers have all made
good crops, both of corn and cotton.
The corn crop has been very good
and most of the farmers have al
ready sold more cotton than they
made last year and have some little
on nand vet. The church is a nice
country church, located in a beauti
ful grove. The crowd was large
and more young people than one
usually sees in the same size con
gregation and we feel sure the young
men outnumbered the girls. This
community used to be known as the
"Nation." just why we do not know.
No. 6 is a good township, with good~
lands and good people. The exten
sion of rural delivery has done much
to develop this section of the county
as it does for all sections through
whiciA it goes. Nearly every family
takes one or more papers and they
keep posted and every body seems
a goo(l work this year on the New
herry circuit. At the rally da it
Lebanon next Sunday. Dr. Crr)IC
will speak again in the morning.
