LEGISLATURE TO HEAR OF IT
Former Governor Gillett of California
to Address South Carolina General
Assembly in Hope of Having State
Represented at Exposition.
Columbia.-The Panama-Pacific ex
pesition which is to be held in San
Francisco in 1915, made its appear
anUce in Columbia, through a special
commissioner, Willis J. Abbot, of
Washington, who has come to seek
the participation of South Carolina
in that affair. Former Gov. Gillett of
California and other representatives
of the exposition will be in Colum
hia in a few days and the legisluatuer
at Mr. Abbot's request, has passed
a joint resolution, iuviting these gen
tlemen to address the two houses in
"The San Francisco exposition, or
to use its proper title, the Panama
'acific International exposition, is one
the great expositions held by au
thority of the United States govern
rent," said Mr. Abbot. "The first
was the Centennia, in 1876, which
commemorated the gnd of our first 10f.
years of national existence. The
next was the Cohymbian fair at Chi
cago in 1S93, commemnorating the
4.0th anniversary of the discovery
of America. The Pan-American ex
position at Buffalo and the Charleston
and West Indian expositions came
next. Still another was the Lcuisiann
Purchase exposition, at St. Louis in
1504, which celebrated our acquistion
of the great Louisiana territory. The
great exposition a: San Francisco in
1915 will come at the very moment
of one of the historic events in our
national life, namely, the opening of
the Panama canal.
Severe Criticism of Railroad.
Camden.--At a meeting of the chaim
ber of commerce many things were
discussed, the most important being
the severe criticism that the North
western railway received from the
body. So strong was the denuncia
tion of the service rendered Camden
at scveral members urged that the
-hamtber ef commerce organize the
-erchants and withdraw their patron
,e from the roa 1. Several of the
riombers stated that as they were
tired of requesting the railroad com
t-ission and the authcrities of the
riaad to give Camden good service.
they would take the matt:r in hand
An Accident On Southern Road.

THE BOY JESUS IN THE TEMPLE.
T.ESSON TEXT-Lil' 2:21-.2.
GOLI:N Ti-XT-"1Iow is it that ye

MIMORY VE RSES-43, 47.
This lesson is the one solitary In
stance recorded in the strangely seal
ed thirty years of the Master's life.
lere is an illustration of w:hat is
Leart by the inspiration of election
-onny there thirgs that were of vital
and redempltive i-nportance in the life
of Jesus are recorded. John says,
.Many other signs truly did Jesus
wvhich are not written in this book:
I":t *Icsc are written, that ye might
believe that Jesus is the Christ, the
: of God; and that believing ye
r.-t have life through his na:c."
'or this re::scn, we s;hould value every
word that is witten.
The lesscu furnishesj a model in
cl::racter bu.'di:g for the youth.
.Je.:us is the exah::lo, and the nmo'ei
bay. Jesus vns a real boy. lie ate,
drank, played. grc-.v, ah:ed uesticus,
just as olher boys de.
Ills character, lihe all cther char
acter buildirg. was a growth: "le in
creased in v isdc. and s:a:ure. No
character is i :'ancers; it is the
wcrk of growth ad cf years, indeed,
of a lifetime. An ei'cle is formed drop
by drop. Character is formed by sin
gle vrds and acts. A mushroom may
gow in a night, but surely not the
charac:er of a man]. Just as words
and sentences are formed by meane
of the siugle letters of the alphabet,
:o words. thc:ght::. deeds, actions,
16:s. mctivcs-tlhese are the alphabet
frcn which we spexll character. Sow
a ti~o::ght, r.rd rc-:p a word; sow a
sverd, and reap an: act; sow an act,
ai.nd reap a habit; sow a habit, and
reap a character; 53-. a character, and
reap a destiny.
Christ's character was developed in
the home. Ile had a Christian home
tha g:-ca:cA. gii of God this side of
heaven. What ch-nce has many a
ehild today to bu-id charactcr in a
h~!-nc -hre t:e parents know not God,
r.ever reed the Bil e, rever pray, nev
er go to chtrch! L for no other rea
son, parents should bccome Christians
fir their children'r sake. If our chil
dren are lost, we p.:rents are to blame,
unless v:e have set before them the
example of a Christian life.
As a boy. Christ as obedient to his
paranLs. This waS a manly thing.
Parents are in the 'lc of God to the
hiki: G carr he rywhere, so
I e:=dei c:c:t. ' h f:ace:nmand
r.-......t.e second~ tabe i.: obedience
t parents, .n it isthe first co:n
mar.dment v - :: rom'ise. The apron
strings of t1:- inottaer may become the
reins of goveranment of the nation. We
must obey be:-ore we can ecmmand.
Tihcechaaater of Jesus vwas develop
ed in the cha:-ch also. His parents
vwcre' churehgovrs, and they bad cul
ti~ated that habit in the child. In
speiking of Jes:: as a churchgoer,
Lulne says :;at "as his -custom was,
1:e vwent into the synagogue." What
great thoughts must have come to the
m]iid oi Christ as heo visited the tem:
p~e What derntant rntentialities were
arouseca no he sat and listened to the
c:-:positio~n of God's vword! Humanly
speakirng. Chris:. ovwcd a great-deal in
th (d:-eiopmentt of h's character to
