CROSS HILL NOTES.
The Baptist church at this place
observed the fifth Sunday In Sep
tember as their annual missionary
day for tho children. There was
singing, recitations and some ad
dresses. There seems to be quite a
spirit of missionary enterprise in
this church, owing largely to the
zeal and energy of their efficient
Superintendent, Mr. T. N. Parks.?
On this occasion the children ac
quitted themselves in a degree that
wan not only pleasing but very sur
prising, and it would be almost Im
possible to say which excelled
where all did so well but we can
not refrain from mentioning the
performance of Willie Mag Hill
who performed on the organ, also
Charley Hill who recited beauti
fully and also Allie Belle Cook who
seems to possess real genius as an
elocutionist, but wo must restrain
our pen, for to mention all who de
serve praise would prolong this cor
respondence to too groat a length.
Tho first Sunday In October was
the centennial of. Bethabara Bap
tist church. Mr. J. C. Riser read
the centennial essay, which gave a
completejnnd interesting history of
this long established church, a few
items from this history may inter
est some of your readers. The
church was organized by John
Waller Hchackleford and David
Lily in 1"95. The church building
has stood on the present site for
75 years, beforo that time the
building wan a milo or so west of
the present location. Rev. Henry
Hitt was pastor of this church from
1800 to 1820 and from him has de
scended a large number of tho
na no and among them several min
isters, a great grand son of tho
above named, being now a Baptist
minister. The church was organ
ized with forty members and death
and removal have carried off a
great number, but .still the church
now numbers ninety members.?
The Rev. B. F. Corley preached the
Centennial sermon. Taken alto
gether the day was an exceeding
interesting one and will bo long re
Mr. Enoch M. PInson had the
great misfortune to lose a bright
and interesting little boy, on the
10th inst. The little follow was
playing about the fire in the house,
his mother being at work in an
other room, when his clothing
caught fire and in spite of the ef
forts of the mother the child was
ko badly burned as to cause death
in a few hours.
Our township is well represented
at the various State institutions of
learning. Carroll D. Nance is at
the Citadel Academy, J. J. Mc
Swain and B. R. Wells are at the
South Carolina College, Misses Ber
tie Turner, Bessie Riser and
Irene Teague are at Rock Hill.?
This we think is a good showing
for Cross Hill.
We are glad to see John R. Mc
Gowan at home on a visit. He met
with a serious accident n few
weeks since, while at work In the
shops of the Southern Railway in
Columbia which accident caused
the loss of one eye. He is now at
his mothers recruiting from the
accident. We hope he will soon bo
restored to health and strength.
The great decline in the price of
cotton has caused a stagnation in
Dr. E. W. Pinson and Miss So
phie Abbey were married at the
home of the bride's mother in
Edgefleld county on the 22nd Inst.
Rev. S. D. Vaughan officiated and
tied the silken knot togethor which
binds two hearts as one. We ex
tend our congratulations to the
happy couple and wish them abun
dant happiness. Tho Dr. brought
his fair brido home on the 24th.
There will be a meeting of the
township and all others who may
wish to join with us, at this place
on the 19th of November next to

From these Rose-loaf

there is no more delightful or

some White Rose that wc are
proud of. It comes in bulk at
50 cents an ounce?in glass

100 and $1.25. We of course
have all the other leading ex

you buy for quality or quantity,
