Presbyterhan C1hurches Show Member.
sitip Vain. Best Year's lieport.
Columbia, Aug. 7.'-'Presbyterians
particularly, and other denominations
generally, will be interested in the
fact that this state stands foutrth in
membership it the Southern Presby
terian church in the 15 states compiris
ing that organization and is outranked
by North Carolina, Virginia and Texas.
Probably no synod is better organized.
This and other interesting facts are
available in the minutes of the nicet
ing of the general assombly held re
cently in St. oi)s.
In South Carolina there are 32,911
members, a gain of 7,688 in ten years;
just about 30 per cent. There were
received into the church oil profes
sion of faith last year 1,401 persons
or about five to every 100 members.
The Sunday school enrollment was
26,555 or 80 to each 100 members, tle
largest ever reported.
The receipts for benevolent causes
amotunted to $456,781 or about $11.87
per caita. This Is well above the
average of the church as a whole.
Thie total gifts to all causes amount
ed to I1,0-49,183 or $31.8-1 per capita,
the largest amount ever contributed.
In 1911 they gave to all causes only
$12.11 per member.
The report shows that the year
just closed was the best the church
ever had. The m em bership increased
20,5-11 in the entie So outhlse rn i'res
byterian chtreh, iaking the total
now :397,0Wx. There were six per
sons received into the( chturch on pro
fession s of faith for every 11111dred
iinijber's of the ctlirelh, or a total of
2-1,3G9. Th- Sunday schlool; sho.-ved
