SUDDEN DEATH OF
MRS. H. H. EVANS
Mrs. Sarah Ellen Hunter, beloved
wife of Mr. Herbert H. Evans, died
suddenly at her home early Sunday
night. As she was apparently in her
usual health Sunday morning anu only
complaining of not feeling very
well Sunday afternoon, her sudden
death was a great shock to the family
who loved her so fondly and to the
many friends throughout the community.
She had gone to the bath room
and after the lapse of some time, the
family fearing something wrong, her
husband went to call her. Receiving
no answer he went into the room
through the window and was horrortied
to find her dead on the floor in
i corner near the bathtub. It was
thought she had been dead about a
half hour. i
Mrs. Evans was a native of Laur-I
?ns county. She was 61 years old;
and had been married 46 years. Her|
marriage was a happy one, full of |
romance and young love. She was in
:he truest sense an ideal home worn- j
in. She lived for her home and fam-i
ly. hardly ever going out from the;
)lace which to her was indeed "home,;
>weet home." But death has taken;
ier away, and the husband and chil-;
iren are left desolate. Besides her
grieving husband she is survived by
he following sorrowing children:
Hiss Luriine Evans of Newberry,
Hr. Rex Evans of Detroit, Mich., j
tirs. Wm. Brooker of Columbia, Mrs. j
f. N. Stone of Nashville, Tenn., Mrs.'
f. L. Townsend of New York, Mr.
Yazier Evans, Miss Mildred Evans,
^oscoe, James and Beverly Evans of
his city. In all the large family'
here had been but one death, that J
>f little Maude in her infancy. Mrs.
Cvans leaves two brothers and one
lister, Messrs. Wash and Lee Hunter,
tnd Mrs. Rhett Copeland, all of Lau-'

FORMALLY DIVIDES I
Diocese of Upper South Carolina is j
Name Given New Section
The State, 11th. j
The diocese of Upper South Caro- j
lina was born yesterday at Trinity j
church, Columbia, and a right lusty j
infant it is, too, with bright promise j
of a great future. Bishop W. A. ['
Guerry of the diocese of South Caro- j i
lina relinquished his custody of this <
part of the old diocese with much re-!
luctance after 15 years of service and ;
made a touching farewell before her
turned the diocese over to its newjl
bishop, the Rt. Rev. K. G. Finlay, 1). !|
D., in which he offered his hearty co-i.
operation and assistance.
The new bishop then took the chair ^
and was presented with an old gavel)(

A. R. Mitchell, D. D., of Greenville.j
Bishop Finlay. in his response, paid!
high tribute to Bishop Guerry and i
spoke encouragingly of the future.
Gift to Bishop Guerry !
As a token of appreciation and i
love, Bishop Guerry was presented j
with a handsome six piece silver ser- j
vice by the Rev. W. H. H. Pendleton j
in behalf of the people of the new)
diocese. On this silver was inscribed:!
"To the Rt. Rev. and Mrs. W. A. j
Guerry from the people of the dio-i
cese of Upper South Carolina." The I
donors included the children and ne- j
groes of the diocese.
Bishop Finlay made his address to j
the convention last night at Trinity j
church. It was a strong address, j
sounding: a note of encouragement;
for the future, making an inventory j
of the present resources of the J
church and telling ^something of the j
things the church is,trying to accom-j
plish at the present time. !
''We have organized a .new division j
in the army of the~]jVince of Peace/' I
said the new bishop. "We stand facing
the unknown ^ire.. We are not
drifted with prophetic vision, yet some
things are sure. We know that the

Finlay said that in the 22 "
counties constituting the diocese of (
Upper South Carolina there is a white I
population of -513,841 and a negro
population of 394,387.. In this terri- .
tory there are 46 white and 14 negro
churches. The money raised in this
field for the period oi 1021 was, for
self support, $173,54$.26; for church
Bishop Finlay made a strong plea
fnr hrnthprhood. showinc: how the
thought of brotherhood breaks down
the petty boundaries that hem in.
"We must learn to think in world
terms," he said.
During the afternoon session the
Rev. T. P. Xoe, superintendent of the
Church Home orphanage at York, explained
the proposition made by Maj.
and Mrs. W. B. Moore regarding the
erection of a $10,000 cottage at the
orphanage, provided the dioceses buy
an adjoining property including 128
acres, and a ten room cottage valued
at S20,000. The Rev. Mr. Noe explained
that the purchase of this
property would increase the housing
facilities of the orphanage by 20 per
cent. The trustees of the institution
have approved this propositi >n. Christie

A committee composed of the treas- j
urer of the diocese, J. P. Thomas, R.

Christie Benet was appointed to se-!

Great interest is centered in the
