The South Carolina Synod.
The 69th annual convention of this
body was held in St. John's (Calk's
Road) church in Lexington County
It was well attended and the sessions
were harmonious and pleasant, and the
work in hand was attended to with
ease and dispatch. A detailed account
of the proceedings would not be in place
here, out a general outline will be
The following officers were elected
for the ensuing year: Rev. L. E. Busby,
president; Rev. C. P. Boozer, vice pres
ident; Rev. S. T. Hallman, secretary;
\Maj. P. E. Wisa, treasurer; Otto Tiede
man, Jr., treasurer Seminary Fund;
Rev. T. O. Keister, treasurer Children's
Missionary Society; Rev. C. P. Boozer,
treasurer Bachman Endowment Fund.
There was no great amount of busi
ness of special public interest. The
reports showed the work to be moving
As to the work in this county it was
decided to constitute a pastorate of St.
Paul's and Mt. Pilgrim, and this pas
torate will be served by Rev. J. A. h
Sligh. Tbe arrangements at Mt. Tabor c
remain as they were last year, and the n
congregation will continue to be served tc
by Rev. T.. O. Keister. Bachman sc
Chapel and Macedonia will be served r
by Rev. J. D. Bowles. The other con- sI
gregations in the county not regularly
in a pastorate were permitted to make w
their own arrangements. 0
In this connection it might be stated tt
that Rev. J. A. Sligh has served St. It
Paul's congregation continually for 28 t<
years, and we believe he is the only r
pastor now in the synod who has never it
been connected with any other synod. Si
He has been in the ministry for thirty to
The treasurer of the synod, Maj. P. E. k
Wise, enters upon his twenty-ninth E
year in succession as treasurer of synod. a
The report from Newberry College 5(
was very encouraging and gratifying to s
the synod. Heretofore the college has b,
annually esked the synod for an appro
priation, but this year President Hol
land said they could get along without
an appropriation, but that he must C
have $4,000 to make more room at the ni
college. Everything was full and
packed. There was pressing need for vi
another building. The appeal sent out h,
by him some time ago had brought in
about $800, and with the money given tt
let year by the synod there was about b:
$1,500 on hand. The other $2,5C0 he
felt sure could be raised. He had never el
asked the South Carolina Synod for te
anything and been disappointed and he
did not believe he would be this time. at
The question of a college agent and
secretary of missions was discussed in sc
this connection, but action on this ir
matter was postponed to next meeting. fi
It was decided to hold a college day d,
service in all the churches on which
the interests of the college will be pre- -r
sented and a collection taken for the w
purpose of putting up the needed build
ing. The work of the college and sem- p:
inary at Newberry is one of the most N
important of the synod.
The Executive Committee of missions
was re-elected, and also the present
board of trustees of Newberry College.
Sermons were preached during the
session by Revs. J. B. I<ox, J. H. Wyse,
Z. W. Bedenbaugh, A. G. Voigt, Ed
ward T. Horn and 0. B. Shearouse.
The next convention will be held in
October, 1894, at Mt. PIersant church a
in Barnwell County.
The people of Lexington entertained a
the synod in good style, and altogether a
it was a very pleasant and profitable

J. Caldwell, of New berry, is here look

Caldwell any definite information on 3
The Secretary stated that he had b
nothing to do with the foreign appoint

was conducted under the direction of ~

to appoint his successor all foreign ti

Mrs. Susannah Counta, wife of M-:. C
Geo. A. Counts, Sr., died at their home b)
in No. 9 Township, on Friday 20th, f<
aged 80 years and 7 months. She was nl
the daughter of Mr. Martin Singley, h
and had lived in wedlock with her h
husband for 60 years. He still survives C
her at the advanced age of 85 years. t3
She has five children still living-Mr. r<
Jacob C. Counts, Mr. A. M. Counts, 11
Mrs. Leander Long, Mrs. Leander 0
Shealy and Mrs. B. H. Miller. There 0
are 49 grandchildren, and 34 great- 5'
grandchildren. Mr. Luther Counts p
who died at Prosperity a few years ago
was also her son. t.
It is not often that two people are t<
permitted to journey through life to- n
gether as long as Mr. and Mrs. Counts. s<
Sixty years is a long time. el
One of her grandsons, Mr. Simpson c:

death of Mrs. Counts, little Ola Bell 0
had the distinguished honor of having ii
both her parents living, four of her V

similar case in this State. The Herald U

espassing on the bird law. There is a r
ad law, too, that. has been trespassed b
pon more so than the bird law. Yet b

Its excellence is due to its presenting

dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
and permanently curing constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession, because it acts on the Kid

ening them and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable substance.
