ENDOWMENT CAMPAIGN ENDED.
Forty Eight Thousand Dollars Were
Subscribed In this Presbytery for
tho Joint Endowment Fund.
Columbia, S. C, May 13.?Tho Joint
Committee on Endowment at Its last
regular meeting considered the report
of the canvass in Enoreo Presbytery,
and It was found that almost $48,000
had been subscribed and that the
prospects of getting tho full $55,000
were hopeful. It Is all but certain that
$50,000 will be subscribed, and those
nearest the situation bolieve the whole
amount will be secured. Tho fact
that so many of tho churches In Eno
ree Presbytery are without pastors and
that the country roads have been so
difficult to travel have retarded tho
work not a little.
The Committee decided to make the
next canvass in Bethel Presbytery, and
to ask this largest of the Presbyteries
for $55,000. Arrangements for the van
v.'vss will be pushed as vigorously as
is wise, and it is hoped that the can
vass may be made early In June.
It is the desire of the Committee to
conduct the canvass in South Carolina
Presbytery before August, and then
to have the canvass In Harmony and
Charleston Presbyteries in time to
report to Synod, In Columbia this fall,
that the work has been completed.
NOTABLE ADDRESS BY
HILARY A. HERBERT
(Continued from First Pago.)
what every thoughtful Confederate
veteran will carry In mind till he
drops into his grave, the fidelity dur
ing the war of the slave to the women
and children of those, who were off
in the field fighting for their homes.
It was on that fact that President Lin
coln based his proclamation of eman
cipation. If the United States army
was to succeed it became a military
necessity to deprive the Confederacy
Of the help it was getting from its
slave population. The world was
astounded a( the story of this fidelity
of the slave; it told in terms that
could not be misunderstood, of the
kindly relations between the slaves
and his master."
In closing his address Col. Herbert
congratulated his fellow citizens up
on the happy relation which now exist.;
between the two sections. The north
honors the south for the courage and
fortitude it showed In the war while
the south reciprocates the feeling In
an equal degree. The war was the
result of misunderstandings that grew
out of conditions that could not be
settled in any other way. Now thai
the war Is over and the question set
tled the north and south are both
proud of the record which "the Ameri
can soldier" has made, and "we mean,
on both sides of the line, that our
children shall he worthy of it by main
taining inviolate that form of repre
tentative Republican government foi
the preservation of which so much
was sacrificed." "All the clouds that
once lowered over our homes are now
in the deep bosom (.: fh" oc< m burled
and History is now writing its final
verdict that while the north was
lighting for the constitution; as they
had come to look upon it in Inter
years, wo were lighting for tho con
stitution, as it was expounded by Jef
ferson, the author of the Declaration
of Independence, and by Madison, it
it is Impossible to do justice to
Col. Herbert's address in a summary
Which it is only possible to give a!
this time, but next week The Adver
User hopes to give the address in full.
After Col. Herbert was seated, the
school children sang a selection, nf
ter which the audience was dismiss
ed. A large number of ladies and
gentlemen went up to speak to Col.

In My Home
is a Macey JBook Cabinet
To set one of the new Macey Book Cabinet* in your Koma
is to set before your children an example of such good taste
that throughout all the days of their lives they will feel its
Macey Book Cabinets are the first sectional bookcases ever
built after the designs of the old masters. These old masters,
Sheraton. Chippendale, Robert Adam and Fra Junipero, wero
as great in Furniture as Shakespeare in Literature, as Mozart in
Music, as Michael Angelo in Painting.
The new Macey Book Cabinets are the only sectional book
cases that can be added to, both upward and sideways, and
still not look like sectional bookcases, but like heirlooms of
furniture. Can be taken from or rearranged without destroying
their beauty and style.
So artful is the cabinet work that dealers frequently have to
take them apart to convince customers that they are sectional.
Macey old master designs harmonize with any furniture you
now have, and are made in such variety of popular prices,
sizes, woods and finishes, that they fit any requirement of space
Macey Sectional Book Cabinets are built under the direction
of Mr. O. H. 1 . Wernicke, the father of sectional bookcases and
President of The Macey Company. Mr. Wernicke's name is
still used in the corporate title of a competing firm, with which
he has long since had no connection.
If you wish to give your home and your children the most
inspiring influence you ever gave them, you will go to a furniture
store and see these new M.xcy Book Cabinets before you forget it.
