Dear Leaguers: Our lpague confer
ence is nearly upon us. Everything
- points to the greatest gathering of
young people ever held in our State.
The eyes of all leaguers are now be
- ing turned toward Newberry. Wo
have worked hard to get up an inter
esting, helpful program and we be
lieye we have succeeded as never be
fore as our program will show-every
ieeparement will be discussed by able
sima~kers there. We will have a tree
"oie discussion on each department,
so W.e can bring out the very best
*plan 'ait ideas in each department.
*We want to make this a very spiritual
- -as well as a very practical confer
-en.ce and to that end we have been
ey~ careful in selecting every
- peaker on our program, and we now
ask that every leaguer pray very
earnestly for God's blessing upon
each speaker and upon every dele-l
gate. We are looking for a very large
delegation and hope every league will
.see that they have two delegates at
* -tis conference. We are so anxious
to bave delegates from charges that
3ha.ve no leagues, and we earnestly ask
-our pastors who have no leagues to
vtry and send us some delegates. They
will be a great help to your work
- nother year. We can not get along
without "our pastors." Dear breth
~.ren, won't you make a special effort
to be at our conference. We need
:your .sympathy and guidance. No
'ure man 'bilp tus like our pastor. Let
us have at least 50 of our preachers
at our conference and I can assure
you that your presence will be a great
blessing to 'the conference. We are
trying to arrange for special cars to
be attached to the morning trains on
.June 16. So look out for the notice
in our Advocate column next week
:about these "special cars," and try
and make your arrangements to come
on these cars. We want every dele
gate to be there on the opening night
-and stay through Sunday. We don't
-want any delegate to this league con
ference to leave on Sunday, if you
can't stay through Sunday, leave on
Saturday as we want no Epworth
leagu1ers leaving Newberry on Sun

from your president and the Newbe
ry leaguers. Great times await us

Twenty Years of the Epworth Leag
in South Carolina.
(By Rev. W. C. Kirkland.)
The request has been made for
brief historical sketch of the leag
in South Carolina. The general cc
ference of 1890 organized the E
worth league as a department of o
church work. That was 20 years al
Over 20 years, therefore, have cc
ered five quadrenniums.
During the first quardrennium t
league was left under the supervisi
of the Sunday school board. Beg
ning with 1890 there can be found
the minutes of our annual conf,
ences P report for each year on t
Epworth league. These reports i
veal in a large measure the attitu
of the conference toward the leag
and its estimate of leagi'e work. T
first report strongly endorses t
league and recommends the organij
tion of district work and emphasis
the importance of the literary depa
ment. But the league moved slo7
during these four years. At the clc
there were only 19 with 698 membe

I have no knowledge of the conf!
ence held in Columbia, but the one

S. A. Steel, the first general sec:
tary, was present and ma'e sevel
heart stirring addresses.
The conference at Orangeburg a
one of the largest and most enthi
iastic ever yet held. There was th
a fine league at Orangeburg, and t
young people came from all sectio
of the State, about 130 strong. Bish
Duncan was present and contribut
greatly to its success. Miss Victori
Keller, of the local league, was one
the happy league workers at that cc
ference. She fell on sleep soon afte
ward, and on her grave the violb
were planted so as to form an E
worth league badge.
For the next flve years Dr. E.
Watson was the president. And Sti
cessul conferences were held

Marion. The number of leagues r;
around 100, and the number
league members was well above

so well attended as at Orangebu:

ie Conferences have been held at
ot Bamberg, Darlington and St. George.
n- Rev. John C. Roper was president of
ir two, and Prof. Salley of one. And the,
te iext one i on the schedule for NeN%
2d berry, and Mr. Howard, a Georgia
it. cracker, will be the president. All of
I's these 20 years past have been filled
im with much good as a result of the
:e. league. Often the discouragements
is! have been many, and the criticisms
rk great, but still the work has gone
ad quietly on. There can be no exact
p- statement of what it has accomplish
ed as the most of its moneys and con
tributions have gone through the est
lished channels of church work, but
e no one would dare to say that it has
been in vain. The Epworth orphange,
the conference collections, the
a preacher's pantry, but most of all the
ue cause of missions have been the reci
n- pients of blessings from the Epworth
|p- league. In addition to those already
ur: mentioned I must speak of two oth
o. ers who were good friends of the
v- league. The late Dr. J. Thomas Pate
attended several 'conferences, and
was always ready to write or to
he speak in its behalf. So also Dr. A. B.
on Cooke, at one time a professor in
n- Wofford college, now thte United
in States consul in Greece.
Charity and Help.
e- Dear Fellow Leaguers: What are
de you going to do about the orphanage?
ue Early in the Conference. year I tried
he to bring it by letter before your dis
he trict secretaries, and through them
:a- present it to you. Have you thought
es seriously of this side of the second
rt deDartment work?
ly It is useless for me to try to tell
se you of the wonderful institution we
rs. call the Epworth Orphanage. Its
Id work and value to the State is a rec
L. ognized fact. The fact for the league
re to realize is that it is missing a priv
at ilege if it fails to co-operate in this
work of caring for children. What
ever is given the orphanage, whether
rk time, thoughts or means is invested
te in a child life and will bring f#rth
ye fruit for the Master. Each leag)pe
e should have. some part In this work
of and I ask you to individually and
er collectively consider prayerfully the
of matter and thus pome to Newberry
)r. prepared to give a definite expression
'or of your league's stand.,
sh The foundation of league progress
tc is spiritual growth. Any department
lo- that 'can add to the devotional char
nd actor of Its members has achieved
tre success. It Is through the cottage
sprayer meeting that the greatest
70 spiritual stimulus of the loving help
ic- department comes. I beg you, dear
t- workers, -to try this. Let a few of
of your members go quietly to the
of homes of those who can not attend
ter church services and hold an intimate
iat prayer meeting. If our leaguers
ut would occasionally have these heart
at to heart talks among themselves
at much pleasure and profit would ac
of crue to them.
of And now, leaguers, please, please,
k bring some tried plan, good sugges
tion, or sucessful method to the con
-ference. Let us make the open dis
cussion of the loving help departpient
rCome prepared to give and to gain.
Yours very sincerely and earnestly,
