Mr. Tandy Williams, the popu lar porter of the Gresham hotel at Spartanburg made a flying trip to Columbia Tuesday.

Mr. Williams is an all-round good fellow and his many admirers were delight ed to have him for a few hours in the capital city. Down at the Union Baptist church a few nights ago, the members tendered a reception to Mrs. Lilla B. Hall, the charming, vivacious wife of the Rev. Dr.R, B Hall, the wide-awake and justly popular pastor of that church. Quite a crowd had as sembled. After remarks suited to the occasion, by Deacon Wil son and Mrs. Fields, Prof. John R. Wilson, formally presented Mrs. Hall to the waiting friends. It was the wife of their own es teemed pastor. Mrs. Hall was received and treated as such. The delicacies which caused the tables to groan were too numer ous to mention. In the short ad dress Mrs, Hall made, acknowl edging courtesies received she gave additional evidence of her superb, innate refinement and charming manners. She may well be regarded as a distinctive addition to Columbia's colored religious and social life.

Columbia has seldom had the pleasure of hearing a reader of the calibre o f Madam Dayse Booker, who gave a recital at Sidney Park church iast Wednes day evening. The four selec tions that the reader gave show ed her versatility and were as follows: The Blacksmith's Story, Dun bar's Encouragement, a selection depicting a little mischievous girl, and the dramatic poem of Itaiian life called the Confession al, The histrionic ability dis playeP by Madam Booker was markedly apparent in each selec tion. Perhaps her Negro dialect did not always ring true but any deficiency along this line was more than made up by the de lightfully humorous activity. In the "Confessional," the character Nina runs the gamut of the emotions, love, jealousy, j hatred, fear, revenge, contrition ! all of which the artist portrayed most convincingly. Mrs. Jeffers assisted by Miss Daisy Jackson and Dr. Henry Hardy of Spar tanburg rendered several musi cal numbers that received hearty applause. SPECIAL SERVICES AT WESLEY. Last Sunday was a memorable day fer Wesley's congregation and friends, because of the two interesting and unusual services that were held in the beautiful edifice on Gervais street. In the morning Rev. C. C. Scott, the pastor, preached a spe cial sermon, the theme of which was "Housebuilding and House keeping" based on the text "Set thine house in order, for thou shalt die and not live," II Kings 20-1. The sermon was repl?te with wholesome advice presented COLUMBIA'S LieENS :-: HARDY, 1006 WASHIN with the literary finish for which I the discour ses of Rev. Scott are ! noted, Prof. F H- Thomas had j charge of the music, which state- ! ment is sufficient to convince one I of the excellenc? of that part of j the-service. At night an unusually large congregation, consisting of rep- j resentatives of all denominations j was present. Among the minis ters taking part were Revs. W. D. King, J. H. Johnson*; A. P. Hill, I. Keitt and John Simmons o f Camden. Speaker M. L. Smith failed to appear, but in lieu of him, Mrs. Dayse Booker made the princiyal address. This lady has been heard so often in lectures and readings during the i past three weeks that it is really ! superfluous to speok in terms of j praise of her masterful discourse last Sunday night. It was the' topic of conversation in Columbia j next morning. The offering for: the day amounted to $34. A worn as to Rev. Scott. During | his incumbency as pastor of Wes ley M. E. church, the attendance has more than trebled, Perhaps this may be accounted for, in that this gentleman is so well ! knfiwn in this community partie- ! ularly to the Columbians of an | elder day and their descendants. Widely read, and broad in views, Rev. Scott has a mission to young men. Neqt Sunday will be a great day also. Rev. C. C. Jacobs field worker for the Board o f Sunday schools will preach at the ll oVock service in the morning and address the Sunday school in the afternoon. Rev. E. B. Burrows, D. D. District Supt. will preach at night. The pasror extends a cordial welcome to the public. Notice of Opening Books of Subscription of the South Carolina Union Bank.
