CALLED TO AUGUSTA.
Rev. M. M. Kinard, D. D., Now of
Knoxville, Formerly of Columbia.
Rev. Dr. M. M. Kinard. wife and
daughter of Knoxville. Tenn.. who
have been on a visit to friends in this
city, leave this morning for their I
home. Dr. Kinard was pastor of
Ebenezer Lutheran church of this 1
city for sixteen and a half years.
He has been pastor of SE. Johns
Lu-he-an church, Knoxville, for 2 1-2 1
years and has now been unanimously
called to become pastor of Holy Trin
ity Lutheran church of Augusta, Ga.
Dr. Kinard has not yet .decided wheth- 1
er he will accept.-Columbia State. 1
Dr. Kinard is a native of Newberry
and an alumnus of Newberry college
and his friends in this county would t
be delighted to have him come to 1
August<a for he would be nearer to
Dr. Leavell at Presbyterian Church.
The services last Sunday at Ave- I
leigh Presbyterian church were en
joyable and were heartily appreciated. i
In the morning services the sacre
In The morning services the sacra- 1
brated. Rev. Dr. Leavell, of Houston,
Texas, delivered the sermon appro-,
priale to the occasion.
The attendance at both services was
large. The music was well rendered
and added greatly to the enjoyment of
Dr. Leavell is always greeted by ap
preciative hearers. His friends being
everybody- of Newberry, who are al
ways' glad to meet and greet him. He;x
is one of the foremost and distinguish
ed ministers of the Southern Presby- I
terian church. We can not do justice i
to the very strong and highry'in-ellec- t
ual sermon, which was based upon -
the text to be found in Luke* ioth
chapter *and 21st verse.
Babes and Philosophers.
The though-t of the sermon was de
rived directly from the text. The rea
son why Christ :hanked God that the j
mysteries of redemption were reveal- 3
ed to the unsophisticated rather than
to the learned and clever, was .the I
' theme discussed. .. 7
Although the world has always.
lookedl upon the/intellect as the- most t
worthy possessio:: of man, and al- j
though the inteS3ect has set the stan
dard in almost all the higher realms 5
of life, the Master than-ked God that
The realities of religion were revealed *I
rather to the :nlearn~ed and unsophis4 a
ticated-to b:.bes. Strange but true- a
The reason was said to be:
Ist. Because the intellect does nor
control life-that the heart and con
science controls-and, - therefore, the j
*appeal of christianity is to 'the heart i
- and conscience-for christianity is a
life, even more than it is a philosophy. ,
2nd. Because while other religions e
are an ap-peal to t'he age, or nation, or i
class, chr.isitanity is an appeal to all i
ages and all mern. It aspires to be an y
universal religion and must conse- 3
quently appeal to what js universal in
man. Ihtellect, brain, are not uni- a
versal, but heart and conscience are.i
Men are not called tro account for -~
not having brains, but are called to ac
count .for the manner in which they
use their'heart an.d conscience.
Had christianity made its appeal i
primarily or chiefl.v to the intellect it
would have limited its consequences to
the few; but by appealing to the heart t
and conscience it extends its bene
fits to all mankind.

-Columbia, September 30.-By to-i
night every cigar s-tore, fruit store, I
end candy store in the city was noti
-fied to close up tomorrow, in accor-<
dance with a resolution passed by 'i
the Police Commissioners. Today the
police were busy giving the notices<
and so far no protest has been heard.
One of the most prominent of those
affected, however, said -that were it
not for the trouble, he would cer
tainly test' the discriminating order.
He said that he would demand that
-the police arrest every street car em
ployee, the employees of the news
.papers and keepers of restaurants on
the ground that they were violating
the same law under which he was
compelled to close up and he believed
that the courts would sustain his
point that they had no right to dis
criminate. This matter may come up
yet, but it is doubtful, as it would only
