MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR
SUNDAY SCHOOL QUESTIONS
The International Press Bible Ques
tion Club is affording the opportuni
ty and stimulus for everybody, eith
er at home or in classes, to study the
International Sunday School Lessons.
The Adult Bible Class Movement has
brought together thousands of men
who study the Bible in classes every
Sunday, but the I. P. B. Q. C. with its
"Suggestive Questions," lays out for
them a most fascinating lot of ques
tions to discuss and at the same time
affords the opportunity for the still
larger number, who do not attend Sun
day School, to profitably study the les
sons at home.
?We are glad to report that our ef
fort to enlist the masses in Bible s.tudy
is being appreciated by our best peo
ple; words of encouragement are be
ing,freely said in favor of the work
We have undertaken. Pastors, Sunday
School workers, and others, interest
ed in Bible study, are giving us much
encouragement. But this we expect
ed; we did not, however, expect our
"Suggestive Questions" would so in
terest non-churchgoers. This is an
agreeable surprise, and it is very en
couraging. From what we have learn
ed, we shall not be surprised if non
churchgoers capture some of the best
We ndvlse everybody to study these
questions right along, so as to be
ready to enter the contest with the
lesson for Sunday December tho 10th.

Gifted Laurens County Woman Scor
ing a Success in Western College.
The many friends of Miss Lillian
Putnam, who is a native of this coun
ty and who Is so pleasantly remem
bered by a large circle of frlevds, will
be glad to read What one of the papers
of Lexington, Mo., said about her at
the time of her first appearance In
public there. Miss Putnam, it will be
remembered, joined the faculty of
Lexington Femaie College this year.
Rev. C. Lewis Fowler, who is presi
dent, of this college, In looking arqund
for one to fill the professorship of
j Higher English, selected Miss Putnam
from his native state so as to be sure
of obtaining a teacher who was known
to be equal to every requirement. About
the reading which Miss Putnam gave,
the Lexington News had the follow
ing to say:
The auditorium at Lexington Col
lege was packed Monday evening when*
Miss Lillia Putnam, reader, and Miss
Ruth J. L. Robbins, pianist, gave Ten
nyson's touching romance, "Enoch Ar
Roth of these women are artists
in their line and they held their au
dience throughout the evening. Per
haps no more complimentary thing
could be said than that the response
of the audience was as heartily and
cheerfully given as it was possible for
It to be. '
Miss Putnam was good In the light
er parts and the heavier more pathet
ic parts alike. She shows that breadth
and llnlsh of training that makes a
reader eagerly heard.'
Ui answer to the applause at the
close of the program Miss Putnam
read, Tennyson's last poem and the one
he requested should be sung at his
funeral and should be appended to all
volumes of his poetry, "Crossing the

Timely advice given Mrs. C. Wil
loughby, of Marengo. Wls., (R. No. 1)
prevented a dreadful tragedy and sav
ed two lives. Doctors had said her
frightful cough was a "consumption"
coughs and could do little to help her.
After many remedies failed, her aunt
urged her to tnke Dr. King's New Dis
covery, "I have been using it for some
time," she wrote "and the awful courIi
has almost gone. It also saved my
little boy when taken with a severe
bronchial trouble." This matchless
medicine hns no equal for throat and

Resolutions of Respect.
Whereas* God In His infinite love
and wisdom has seen fit to remove
