Sacred Cantata Postponed.
The sacred cantata which was to
have been given on the night of De
ember 22, in Central Methodist
church, in which Dr. and Mrs. Thom
as and other talented singers were to
take part, has necessarily been post
nd ntil after Christmas.
Woman's Foreign Missionary Society
of Central Church Oldest Wo
man's Society in South.
On Wednesdzi.y evenIii::. ni ('entral
Methodist ebure'hel, the thirtleth n
ver1rV of the Wonlai' 1i'sionary
so(iet.v was celebrated.
There was a small but al)precia-tive
audience present and 'the service was
entered into with much enthusiasm.
There was a full choir present, with
the eveeption of the organist, an]
the singing was good. Mrs. Frank
Davenport presided at the piano, in
the absence of Mrs. Burr Martin.
The address of the evening was
made by Mrs. J. W. Humbert, who
in her enthusiastic manner gave an
interesting account of the organiza
tion of this wonderful movement
among the women of the South, and
presented much valuable data. She
said that tile Woman's Foreign Mis
sionary society, of the Methodist
Episcopal church, South, was preemin
ently the leader of all women's socie
ties in the Southland. *As is rec)g
nized now. there are more of these or
ganizations and societies than can
well be supported, .yet Wednesday
night was only the thirtieth birthday
of the first one. Mrs. Humbert told
of this first organization, how that
after the officers had been elected the
women could not speak until the men
had retired. She also read the roll
of the members of this first society,
and many of the name were familiar
to those present on Wednesday night;
and many are now numbered among
the sainted dead, the very calling of
their names bringing uppreciouI mem
ories. Thirty years is a long tir i, and
as Dr. Wolling remarked in his short
talk. "it mows down a generation."
Besides being the first woman's or
ganization in the State, it perhaps
has done more from a financial stand
point than any 6ther. Thousands
of dollars have passed through the
hands of the treasurer, and many
missionaries in many fields have
been supported by them. T:uly in the
great "reckoning up"' the women
will not be found wanting, for they
have done much in carrying the "red
stained banner of the eross" unto
the uttermost.parts of the earth.
It should not be a mnatter of indif
ference to the citizens of this city
that Newbery has the distinction of
being the birthp'lace of the first wo
man's society in the State; and the
women of this organization should
not be unmindful that they have as a
heritage the honor of being not only
members of the first organization
in t!he State, but also of being the old
est, yea the leader of all women's so
eieties in the South.
Death of Mrs. Mary Bishop Smithi.
Mrs. Mary Bishop Smith, wife of
Mr. W. E. Smith, died on Tuesday,
December, 15, at the home of her
father, in this city, after a long per
iod of intense suffering.
Mrs. Smith was the daughter of
Mr. Clinton W. and Mrs. Christian
Meredith Bishop. She was born in
Newberry a little over thirty-two
years ago. Until her marriage she
lived in this city, where she was lov
ed and esteemed by those wvho knew
On September 16. 1895, she was
married to Mr. W. E. Smith. For a
few years they resided in Orange
burg, and then removed to Columbia,
which has been their home since.
Mrs. ~Smith has been seriously ill
for several weeks, and often during
this time her life was despaired of,
but for a long time she held on with
suh strong determination and brave
endeavor that death was warded off
for a little while.
Besides her husband, Mrs. Smith1
leaves two little children, the oldest
a lttle girl about nine or ten years
old, and a littQe boy about six years
old. An infant preceded the mother
to rest some few weeks ago. The
children will be taken to the home of
their uncle, Mr. George W. Bishop,
who lives in Columbia, and will there
make their home for the present.
Much sympathy is felt for the
heart bro'ken husband, the little moth
erless children, the father, arnd the
other relatives of Mrs. Smith. She
lived a beautiful life, and has gone
to her eternal reward trusting con
fidently in her Savior.
The funeral exercises were: held at
Central Methodist church yesterday
afternoon at 3.30 o'clock, the services
conducted by Dr. Wolling, who is a
relative of Mrs. Smith 's family. The
body was buried at Rosemont ceme
Silver Street Lutheran Church.
The Sunday school of the Silver
Street Lutheran con.:regation will
meet next Sundar afternoon at 2..30
o'clock. At 3.30 there will be ser

The initial presentation was made
under the direction of B. -C. Whitney
who still stands sponsor for it and
the statement that it is credited with
excelling in perfectness of sciene
equipment, electric novelties and rich
ness of costumes and production pre
viously made by this well-known pro
ducer of musical plays will mean a
great deal more to those who are fa

Like all the other Whitney produe
tions the ensembles, dances, and ehor
us evolutions have been devised by
Gus Sohlike whose cleverness in his
particular line has won for him the
name of the "Wizard." Dr. Sohlke
