My Impression
and the Beai
By Mrs. J.
On May 17th a -party of men and
Women left the good old town of Lau
Iens to attend the Southern Baptist
convention which met in Jackson
ville, Including dates May 17-22. Wo
left here at 9 a. m. and mado the trip
In eleven hours, arriving there at a
p. Im., and found, numbers of autoino
Jbiles at the station, having the words
-"Hop in Baptists" printed on the
windshield. The stores -and all the
(places of business had the same slo
gan printed on their windows and in
driving around the parks and even the
lakes, you would see a large placard
"'Qop in 'Baptists". The inen held
their services in the Billy 'Sunday
tabernacle, 'while the women met In
the big 'auditorium of the armory
which would seat over 3,000 people
and was comforta-bly filled at every
service. After the first service of our
meeting in the armory we stopped by
'tho trbernacle and found that build
Ing crowded to the limit, ana a.s we
looked on that mass of more than
6,000 people we realized what a host
of Baptists there are in our Southlaild.
llere I was reminded of one of Dr.
Ferguison's witty remairks rwshen he
said "The Baptists of Laurens were
like IEnglish rgarrows, in that they
were about to take the tOvn."
- The magnltudo of the work was
shown at tle evening service On
T'hursday 1.41hen '18 new missionaries
were presented to the con vention and
will go out to different countries this
summer; amon-g this number were two

J. D. Watts, who will go to Palestin.

of the city, while the green folinge of

the white caps of the Atlantic through
