THE C11AMKKK OF COMMERCE.
From time to time there has be. n
some effort made to infuse new lifo
Into the Lnurons chamber of com
merco by Increasing the membership
of the organization and by tin: the
adoption of other methods and means
necessary to the life and success of
the institution. And while much has
been accomplished through the organ,
l/.atlon, it has lacked the general
hearty support of the citizens of Luu
reilB. It is a I.aureus institution and
Its pi per mnlutanancc Is as obliga
tory upon the business an 1 profession
al men of this city as a like organiza
tion that is supported in Columbia or
Spartnnburg and other towns in South
Carolina. A live, active board <?i
trade or < hatuher of commerce is ab
solutely essential to the best Interests
oi any town: no one. we suppose,
would undertake to refute this state
ui< lit. Tbl II why mil give your own
homo town a chance to show to tin
country larger results through the
Instrumentality of its olllclal eomtnor
c al bond?
it Is unnecessary to stale that then
; ny Indication of tho Lnurcns cham
ber of commerce collapsing or fall
in:. Into Inactivity, for ii is an estab
lished Institution ami its members an
faithful plodders and tollers. What
is desired and what should appeal to
those who have refrained from Join
lug hands with their fellows, Is n Inrg
e;\ more thoroughly represent at iv<
body of nil Interests affecting the clt.\
of Lnurons, "In union there i>
strength." Recently successful cam
paigns have boon made in other plac
es in the work of building up thi
membership of i hose common lal bodies
Now it is to be undertaken in Lnu
rons; Indeed the campaign is now on
ami it is conlldontly hoped that at tin
end of tili.-, month, or by the lime ol
the next mooting, something like sev
enty-live to one hundred new mem
bers will have been added lo the mem
bership roll. The monthly due.-, art
merely nominal, the Unto you shall

is no reason why every Lum ens.lovinj:

tho chamber of commerce.
President Alken and Secretary Mo
Ctien each have great demands or
their time, both are busy toilers: yel
they find time to devote much work
to tin; cause ami general welfare ol
this organization, Others we might
mention have provod their fidelity to
the city's interests, for they recognize
tho certain rewards that are ta accrue
to the town as a whole.
if not already a member, now is
the tlmo to come to the aid of tin

Tili: IIAKKOK LICHTS OF HOME
Somotimcs when human hopes are
crushed, when human plans fail and
human ambitions are crumbling we
see more dearly through a mist ol
tears, than we do in the sunshine ol
earthly prosperity. "(Jod is in his
Heaven and alls well with the world.'
An all-wise creator sits at the helm
ot events. The Hood tide of sorrow
may bring us noaror the harbor lights
of home. He who marks a sparrow's

see He can lead us--where we would
slip He holds our hand- where we sin
He has promised to forgive us and
when we cry, to hear us. If like little
children we trust him.

as his reason for declining to entei

thai In his opinion If ho could Increase

At the .annual meeting of the South
Carolina conference three years ago.
the Itov. C. \V. Crelghton, member ol
the conference and editor of the Chris
tian Appeal, published at Greenwood,
was ordered expelled because of cer
tain views and criticisms expressed'
in the columns of his paper, opinions
that were deemed antagonistic with
thoso held by the church. The de

the general conference of the Metho
