It was a great pleasure to the con

Daniel preach on this occasion, and

Dr. Daniel is one of the best
preachers in the South Carolina con
ference of the present day. He has
unusually gracious pulpit manners,
and his soft, melodious voice is dis
tinctly heard .all through the congre

received the undivided attention of
His sermon on Sunday morning
was an able discourse on the promul
gation of the gospel. He said that
many arguments 'had been based on
the question, "When will the end of
time be?'' Dr. Daniel showed that
Christ had said that time was only
being prolonged in order that the gos
pel might be pre-ached to all nations.
He showed how men were retarding
the plans of God that their own sel
ish purposes might be accomplished,
but that in the cou-rse of time this did
not amount to anything lasting and
that only those who cooperated with
he plans of the Lord would abide.
At the evening service Dr. Daniel's
theme was "Fidelity to Truth." The
basis of his remarks being that the
1uty of every man is to live up to
he light that has been shown him,
nd that he will be judged only ac
:ording as he has been shown, but to
he fullest.extent of the light as giv

The Baraca Classes of Clinton and
One of the most enjoyable ocea
sions held in Newberry in some time
was the banquet given by the Baraca
class of the First Baptist chu-rch, of
this city, on Friday evening, in honor
of the visiting friends from Clinton,
and in celebration of the winning of
the banner by the Newberry class in
the contest with the Baraca class of
Some months ago a -contest was en
tered by the two classes for the ban
ner which would be given to the class
showing the greatest increase in
membership, average -attendance, and
collection within a stated time. The
contest proved to be a most enthus
iastic one and a fine spirit of rivalry
was shown which has naturally result
ed in much good to both classes. In
the end, the class in this city showed
the greatest increase along the lines
indicated, and on the day for present
ing the banner to the Newberry class
a large delegation came over from
Clinton, and a banquet was given by
the -class here.
At 8:30 o'clock the two classes and
other interested friends gathered at
the first Baptist chureh and a recep
tion was held there until 9:30, dur
ing which time the following music

At the close of this delightful pro
gram the members of the Baraca.
class then invited their guests and
friends to go with them to the old
court house and here the reception
was continued until about 11:30.
Delicious refreshments had been
prepared by the Ladies Aid society
and the banquet spread was -all that
the most fastidious could expect, and
the good ladies had arranged every
t-hing so prettily and daintily that it
added much to the pleasure and en
joyment of everyone.

DR. HIDDEN IN NEWBERRY.
Preaches Three Strong Sermons in
Second Baptist Church-Ser
vices in Great Demand.
Rev. C. V. Hidden. pastor of Bush
River and Mount Zion churehes paid
his promised visit to Newberry on
Sunday, preaching three times at the
Second Baptist church, Rev. J. F.
McGill pastor. In the morning his
sermon topic was "Jesus of Naza
reth passes by,'"being based upon the
healing of the blind beggar Barti
maeas out on the highway beyondl
Following the sermon he made an
appeal for converts and eight persons
raised their hands for prayers.
In the afternoon his subject was
"The Business Side of the Temper
ance Question." and the speaker
spoke long and earnestly upon what
is evidently a favorite topie with him.
He explained to his hearers the at
titude the business world is taking
in the crowding of the saloon and
drinking men to the wall, and made
the bold prediction that inten years
from today the drinking man will be
unable to obtain skilled employment,
and that in twenty years the drunk
ards of the country will be in a class
by themselves, as clearly defined as
the criminal, the pauper and -the in
sane today. He paid a high tribute
to the Southland for its mighty strid
es in temperance legislation, told of
the deep sentiment that is being
aroused everywhere against the sa
loon. and paid his tribute to the rum
sellers and whiskey dealers in scath
ing denunciation. He held that re
spectability is not a factor in the sa
loon business, that the liquor dealer
cannot conduct his business decently,
and maintained that the man who
sells liquor is not a good fellow but
a very bad fellow, the wickedest man
in the community, in fact, because he
not only ruins men, steaIs clothing 1
and food from helpless women and i
children, but also robs God and heav- 1
en of clean, white souls.
Following his appeal thirty persons
signed the pledge.
At night he held his farewell ser
vice in Newberry for the. present,
preaching upon the topie "It is I:
Be. not Afraid," the story of Jesus
walking on the sea
This sermon like all the talks
throughout the day, was replete in
word painting and illustrations. but
is picture of a storm at sea, used to
precede the storm on the Galilean seay
was particularly enjoyed.
Two persons requested prayers at
the close of the service. A profound
impression was made on the people
f Newberry by this short visit of
Dr. C. W. Hidden. It is to be hoped
that :he can come to us again in the
Dr. Hidden left on the noon train
onday for UJnion, where he is to
onduct revival services uip to and in
luding Friday night. On Saturday
be~ will speak on temperance at .the
pinic at the Wadsworth school house
nd on Sunday forenoon will preaeh
to his people at Bush River; subject,
"We have an Advocate."
'Some idea of th~e demand that is
being created for Dr. Hidden's ser-i
ices may be gleaned from the state
rent that he has but twelve days free
to September first. Plans are also]
einz arranged th-at, if successfuly2
arried out, will take him on 'an even-,
elistic tour of the world, starting in1
London in April next.
Zoar High School Commencement.
The steady progress of Zoar High
school, aSluda county, may be noted
by the yearly improvements in com
mencement exercises. The exercises:
of t'bis year were pronounced the
best on record. Prof. Dorn has fin
ished 'his eighth term here, and has
brought through many difficulties by
the cooperation of the people of thati
etion. from a small winter school
a splendid high school, known
throughout the greater part of the,
State. The crowning feature of thea
commencement was the able sermon
delivered by Rev. J. H. Harms, presi
dent of Newberry college. A large
crwd heard Rev. Harms and all were1
loud in their praises of his excellent
and inspiring sermon.
A Card of Thanks.
Out of the fullness of the heart the
mouth speaketh and the speech is
truth; the truth at all times is a1
thing of beauty; but in no instance
have I ever known it to be more
beautiful than when it is used to ex
press the gratitude that I feel to Dr.1
Dominick of Prosperity, for .bis great
hearted course in his treatment of
my wife, who was sa severely burned
a few weeks back, kind, tender and
true, he. with the knowledge of his
profession second to noe-has estab
lished himself in my mind and those
of a host of others-as a man among
men and one after God 'a own heart.
