I/A I HENS, S. C, NOVEMBER 80, 1910
Assembled in the city of Laurens
arc the representatives of the Bap
tist denomination in South Carolina?
foregathered liere for the first time
in the history of the Stnte convention
for the ninetieth annual session. Ap
proximately throe hundred ministers
and laymen, representing more than
one thousand Baptist churches and
ono hundred and thirty thousand
members, are here to render reports
of the past year's work and to dis
cuss plans and means of carrying
"forward the kingdom of their Lord"
in the great State of South Carolina
during the next twelve months.
The Stale convention of South Caro
lina Baptists was organized in the
city of Columbia in 1821. Its purpose
v. i for the "further unifying of the
Baptist churches In the State for
closer co-operatton in the great work
of missions an deducatlon." From the
very first the Haptist organization in
terested Itself in State mission work
and in 1SGG the convention named a
committee which constituted the first
State Mission Hoard. and down
through all these years the efforts of
this official board have been directed
Hi carrying out the original motto:
"South Carolina for Christ." and Its
purpose: "A Haptist Church in Every
Locality in the state." Home and for*
I ign missions also engage the hearty
support of this organization, over
Blxty thousand dollars having been
contributed for these objects during
tht conventional year of 1900. Doubt
less it has been much larger this year.
The State convention is directly in
terested in Furmnn university, the
Southern Haptist Theological Seminary
at Louisville and the Greenville Fe
male college. Other schools and col
legts in the State, however, receive
supiKirt and encouragement from the
Baptists, though not under the super
vision of the convention.
In all the departments of church
work, fostered by the Baptist denom
ination of the State, this convention
year has been wonderfully blessed.
There has been a great ingathering of
men for the Cause, and now at the
close of another twelve months the
church and association.-!) representa
tives meet for association and mutual
help?to get inspiration for bettei
work and larger things.
Laurens is now regarded as one
of the Baptist stronghol Is of the State
The great assemblage of. Baptists,
Coming as they do from evory nook I
and coi ner of the commonwealth, have \
been most cordially welcomed to this j
fair city, and The Advertiser, In this j
connection, desires to bespeak for our
guests a pleasant stay among us. and j
to add that you are heartily welcome
to our homes, stores and offices. May I
the convention now In session no
down in the history or the organiza
tion as the very best yet held in the '
four score years of its existence.

MAKE IT BIGGER.
The great Bticcess of the Corn Sh w,
which was held in the court houst
bejc Friday, should prove as an Incen- '
ti\? to do even more and better things
next year. 'he fair was a success
in every particular and the young men
deserve a great deal of credit for the
line showing lhat they made.
However, though the fair was a j
success, the people of Laurens county
should not be content with only a corn
show. Nearly every other live ami
progressive county In the State had
a big county fair this fall and In ;
nearly every Instance they were snc
CCSofui. Numbers of them invested ,
Paige sums of money in grounds, build
IngS and premiums and, from the '
newspaper reports, all of them paid
expenses. NOW, there is no reason
why Laurens county should not get ]
in line with the other progressive
counties and have an even better ex-1
hlbltlon next year. It 1? not neees. '
nary the first year to have buildings, J
race tracks, carnivals and the like, I
but let the farmers of Lauren? coun- i
ty bring in their prize farm produce,
prize stock, cattle and poultry of;
which she might well boast of, and j
lot us have a nice. Instructive, con
genial and up-to-date exhibition of
thp county's resources. It will be
easy to do if the people will begin
to prepare at once.
Numbers of the prominent people of
the county have already voiced this
name sentiment and promised to co
operate In making a fine exhibition.
To have a successful exhibition of
tliis kind it is not uecessury to have
an expensive race track and carnival
company. It Is true that these fea
curos of the county fairs help pay ex
penses when a large outlay has been
made, but the kind of exhibition, that
wo would want to make would not
require a large expenditure of money.
! Doubtless the merchant? of the cltj
I would he glad to offer such premiums
1 as would be needed for the adverttse
! ment that WOUld be in It. And be
i sides, as Supt. Pitts said at the (Urn
! Show, the prizes are not wdiat should
he most valued in these contests, but
it Is the lessons learned ami the |n
: splratlon received that prove most
! beneficial in affairs of this kind.
Therefore, we would urge that some
j steps be taken to have a larger and
better exposition of the county'.- re
sources bore next fall. To have a suc
cessful exhibition will require imme
diate action, so that the farmers will
j be able to prepare Preparations for
' agricultural exhibits have to be be
gun early in the year so that lands
may be gotten in good condition,
stock being gotten In good shape and
a variety of products pranted.
It Is unnecessary to recount the
great benefits to be derived from such
exhibitions. The great awakening. In
agricultural matters, that has taken
hold of the people of the State is di
rectly traceable to the agricultural
and educational gatherings that have
proved so popular In late years. There
is no question of the benefits to be
derived. The only question is. "Will
I we take advantage of our opportuni
As there are numbers of men in
i the county who have had considera
I ble experience in such matters, we
i open the columns of this paper to
j them and let them make any BUgges
j tions that they might how an organ
I Ization might be perfected or plans
made to have a larger and better
show next year.
We would like to hear a ready re
j sponse to this, for Daurens county
i should no longer be In the rear guard,
i when the rest of the State is making
stich rapid strides in the agricultural
and educational uplifl of their people.
THE SPIRIT OF IT.
"I am going to farming." This was
the declaration of one of the ninety
seven Daurens county farmer boys
who wero exhibitors Friday in the
Hoys' Corn Club contest as he was
leaving the court house with his ex
hibit, at the conclusion of the day's
exercises. He carried in one hand ]
a newly purchased piece of an im- |
proved turn-plow, a strikingly im
pressive indication of that boy's spir
it and purpose. Although he failed
to receive a prize of any kind In the
contest be showed no disappointment
over the result. "I am going to farm
ing." Jerry Moore, the Florence youth
who is the accredited champion corn
grower of the Stale today, has a
strong rival in this Daurens boy in
bis modestly avowed hope of "doing
better next time."

NEW RAILROAD COMMISSIONER.
Although our good Governor Ansel
was a little slow In making his selec
tion of the new railroad commissioner,
to succeed the late Mr. J. M. Sullivan. !
he made a very wise choice when he j
did act. Governor Ansel was con- :
fronted with quite a problem in mak
ing a selection from so large a num
ber of men. among them being very
competent as well as Influential men .
of affairs in South Carolina, there be- :
Ing two very estimable men from this
county, ami doubtless he acted very
wisely in taking his choice from the
ranks of those w ho had not applied ;
for the job.
Mr. Richards has been prominent Hi !
the affairs of his county and the State
for years and he goes into the office
well equipped to fulfill its duties.
