FOR FORTY-SIX YEARS.
-jey. J. A. Sligh Has Served One Con
gregation-Will Retire on Account
. of i Health.
On next Sunday will be held at St.
Pauls Lutheran church in No. 10 town
ship, a most interesting, and, in,soime
respects, a sad service, but, in others
and larger res'pects it should and will
be an occasion of rejoicing. It is not
given to many ministers the privi
lege of serving successfully and con
tinuously and consecutivelY the same
-congregation for forty-six years.
On the second Sunday of November,
1865, the Rev. Dr. J. A. Sligh preached
-his first sermon as pastor in St.
Paul's Lutheran church, and, at the
-same time, became its pastor, so this
congregation was his first church and
he has continuously served it, hold
ing the esteem and respect of all the
people during all these years. On ac
count of failing health and advancing
-years, Dr. Sligh decided sometime ago
to retire from~the active pastorate of
the church and will do so on next
Sunday *when appropriate services
will be held.

Miss- Summer's whole heart and
mind seemed to be aroused on mis
sions. She spoke for one hour, in
which she held the close attention of
the congregation. She quoted from
the Bible and applied it to our every
day life, and showed that our careless
ness in the cause of missions was
largely from selfishness. She said it
was not how much we give, but how
much we keep for self.
Miss Summer has the faculty of
reaching the people and getting up
an interest. She is a forcible speak
Miss Summer expects to go out at
some future time as a missionary of
the Lutheran church. If the Luther

the address is that it was one of the
finest that we have ever heard. We
bespeak a very bright future for Miss

You know I enjoy reading Frank
3tanton in the Atlanta Constitution. I
iope I am not infringing when I copy
rom him. A lot of it Is worth pass
ng on. I believe it will do you good
o read some of what he says. In fact
might, say that I believe it would
ielp you to read all of It. But of course
[can give you only now and then some
hings that appeal to me. I read
Pvha+ he has to say whenever I have
he )pportunity. Listen so some of
3rother Dickey's philosophy:
Ef you rise high people will say you
hink yo'se'f above 'em, an' ef you
ftay whar you is dey'll say you is too
azy ter flop yo' wings an' rise.
De lesson of Life is work-no mat
er how you look at it. Even w'en
rou goes ter heaven you'll find work
;vaitin' fer you dar. You'll have ter
>lay a harp an' take yo' turn in sing
W'en de harricane blows yo' enemy's
touse sky-,high, dat's a jed-gment sent
) him fer his wickedness, but w'en
t hits yo' own house it's a mighty
trange dispensation of Providence!
Then here .is another bit of philoso
phy which is said to be not a fable:
One man prayed Providence to send
iim his daily bread. The other man
matched the lark in the early-rising
>usiness, and kept plow and hoe busy
n the broad fields. Of course, you know
he' man who -finally invited his friends
to a banquet, and left his book at the
bank to be balanced?
I was thinking the other day that I
remembered in 'the long ago that
bhere was in the town of Newberry an
)rganization called the civic associa
ion, and I was wondering if it died a
aaural death or if it met violent death.
such organizations have accomplished
i great deal in some communities and
: have wondered why one- would not
hrive in Newberry. It seems to me
n looking around this good old town
:hat there is fertile soil here for one
%o thrive in. What do you think of it?
'hey. are generally kept up 'by the
lear women and with mighty little en
~ouragement. from the men. In fact,
:he men are so busy making money
Lnd getting rich that they have very
ittle time to devote to the finer side
)f our natures. I wonder sometimes
what they are going to do when they
et over yonder where there will be no
)uying of cotton futures and no spe
~ulating in land and no charging of
surious interest and no .grinding
lown of the poor that their coffers
nay be filled.
Talking about the work of the good
omen I see that there are some ad
~-ocates of woman suffrage and some
eople who were not heretofore advo
ates seem to be leaning tihat way. I
lon't know what the women of this
;ection think about it, but I do know
f there are many advocates they are
ecent converts. I read the other day
n article on "Anglo-Saxon Woman
ood," I think it was in the Greenville
ews, but that does not matter. I
'ant you to read it. It is a little long
or my column, but .I think it is worth
reserving and an it expresses my
iews I want it to go in my column.
Heres a beautiful sentiment on
vomarood, found in the Augusta
:hAonicle. It isn't original, but it is
;omething that is particularly worthy
f emulation, right at this time among
kn,glo-Saxn people-particularly and
sspecially among a greater part of
.he Ar sican .geople. It comes from
, file of 1861, and caught the eye by
,hance. Read it; it might start a new
ie of thought among the sentiments
nd ideas which surround us of today:
"'Behold thy mother!' is a strain
hat has never died on the air-that.
hhildhcod, and youth, and age, in all
Thristian lands, have consciously or
nconsciously repeated-that still
loats in all languages around the
;lobe; blending with praises and pray
rs rising on hallelujahs and hosan
as, or', seaking the silent heart, has
oIT' threpgh its arteries with- gen
:liieya n quir-kaned its. blood
to a warmer flow. in those retunrf
visions of humanity, which fill the
pages of the New Testament, the idea
of womanhood has its rightful honor.
Meek and EbmLssive, true and patient
and pure, womanhood here shares the
glory of a new creation-a glory of
her own, derived from the Prince off
Peace. The pecullar virtues belonging
to her nature are just the virtues that
advancing society must necessarily
cherish and practice. Never were they
more needed than now; and, therefore,
the most significant sign of Providen
tial interposition in our day is this
wonderful evoking of womanly worth;
its sudden appearance like a lovely aP
parition in the arena of literature and
life; and its earnest summons to man
ly feeling to reciprocate its claims and
accept its ,precious offices. Here is
the merciful provision to unsensualize
our civilization, to check our cold and
barren worldliness, to heighten the
fading beauty of daily existence, and
to bring back, in something better
than poetic raptures, the lost imagin
ings of domestic 1blessedness."
In the light of things that' have
transpired in this country of ours of
late, there is reason to wonder if me
of today are inspired by and look up
to the beauties of womanhood-Anglo
Saxon Womanhood-as did the men of
that day when the quotation was pen
.ned-or has the world changed.
Let us hope that the world has not,
changed, but if it has that It will soon
come back to its rightful moorings
and recognize the dignity and the
grandeur of Anglo-Saxon Womanhood.
There is nothing so sweet, so pure, so
elevating, so inspiring, so helpful as
the love of a pure good woman. And
there is- nothing so lasting and- so
abiding. Thg inan .vho -does not knQw

man's love has not lived. Read the,:,
following beautiful lines from the Bal
A Woman's Heart.
A woman's beart.is.a savings.bank
Where the love you deposit lies,
Qathering interest day by day
From the sunshine of the skies.
There isn't a safer place, my lad,
To bury the treasure you'd keep
Than down in its beautiful vhults of -
Where the tenderest blossoms sleep,
A ,woman's heart is the place to -hide
Whatever you'd treasure 'best;
For she'll give it back as the years
*In alove that's more than rest.
A woman's heart is a storage v&ult,
Where nothing breaks in to steal,
Except the honor you fail to pay
And the love you forget to feel,
A love yo'u have placed there once re
And you may forget, but she
Will give it back, if you want it so,'
And smile as she niands the key.
Smile, but never forget, my lad,
That a smile is the saddest thing
When it's over the ashes of some
And the heart is a broken wing.
A woman's heart is a fortress strong,
Where your foes may never come,
With prancing steeds and the gleam
ing sword '
And the rat-tat of the drum.
For that which you treasure she will
And loud as the guns may roll,
She'll stand in the breech to the very
And then she will fight with her soul.
A woman's heart-I would rather
My all unto that, I know
-For love in the keeping of such a
Will grow as the blossoms grow.
Please pardon me for giving you
these.. quotations, but some people I.

to get something good now and then.
