ZION BAPTIST CHURCH SUMTLR. ing on but my crowd ience was 1 tions and $15 UO was On Saturday, June 26, I start ed to Sum tor from Augusta, Ga., to conduct a week's revival at Mt. Zion Baptist Church. Rev. D. J. Johnson, is pastor of this large churc h. Dea.R. W. West berry, who is a member of my high Council rendered great as sistance to the pastor by helping to advertise the meeting at great expense also he put bath of his cars at our disposal. I spent all the week in the nice parsonage of the past >r. Including my In troductory sermon on my first; visiti prerched seven sermons' and the remit of my work was; the addition of 60 persons to the' church. One thing that appear-j ed strange to a number of people was the weather condition. For four evenings it rained at 6 o'clock and it would clear so the people could get to church. Sometime i ; is hard to get a full house i n the towns because so many different things are go ks the week advanced increased. The aud beral in its contribu jon Friday night over raised. This chtjrch is said to have a membership of at least 1,000 and the 60 that) gave me their hand greatly increased the number, There are only five other city churches ir the State that carry as large a congregation as this one and on y two carrying larger] ones. A i?eat many members of the ott er churches attended the meeting regularly and some, were eon verted that joined other ] churches. Several persons sent] valuable *i:fts to me. Rev. John is a friendly minister: andJsj _ ^?d^br h^ tntot?bew^ He is in line with all the work of j the State Convention. He in tends to do all he can for the1 $50,000 drive for Merris College. There w4s a great deal of ex citement all over the U. S. and some in Sum ter about the comet tail but a ?umber of people had heard whajt I had said in The Indicator that there was absolute ly no use of any fear and they be lieved whajt I said about it and everybody j can see now. You could not see the comet nor its tail without a glass. Our meeting had the good will of the white citizens and they gave large space in Daily Item to tell of the iwonderful work that was being jwrought by the Holy Spirit in Sujmter. Many of them had heard j me three years ago when the World's War was rag ing and they remembered clearly that I told f he exact time that it would end j a long time before it really did e nd. On my way home on the Coast Line a freight train wrecked in front of us therefore my train had to step half an hour-near Ellen ton. While there I went out to loo z around and two of the Deacons of Mt. Moriah Bap tist Churcl came and asked me to run a re rival for them because they thought I could do them a great deal of good. I told them alright, we will give the Devil a We had a fine meet was well attended. I good people a pastor last year year. They are intelli gent and nearly all of them own their own homes. In June preached at Welch Zion Baptist Church, Newberry County. The people had heard of me thro lgh Sister Violet Kin is one of my helpers, were converted and I -, to return soon. I spent the first night with Bro. Davenportj. This family owns 1,000 acrfes of land. Sunday' nightlwals with Sister Kinard. An inspection of the building and the grjeat work that is being done at Mbrris College will con vince any Jone of the necessity of the great j drive for funds that Dr. Earlei and the State Board has launched. Those prophets and astrone-. mers certainly excited many per sons about the destruction the comet woiild wrought But the readers of The Indicator knew what I said the Lord had revealed to me about it.

The Sisters' Auxilirry Union of the Storm Branch Association held its annual meeting with the Ned Branch Baptist Church, Sat urday 2nd. inst, Rev. G. W. Cherry, pastor. The meeting was full of inspiration seemingly to all who attended. The sisters seemed deeply concerned and interested in the raising of funds for the education of the young people Well done Sisters may other Associational Fields follow your gooci example. Rev. G. W. Cherry, that untiring and zealous worker for his people on his way through Dunbartonto the sister's meeting was liberally donated by the whites of this town, who as serts that the esteem they hold for this man of God prompted them to give liberally. Rev. Cherry stands high in the esti mation of both white and black. The sisters raised over $161 for educational purposes. Let me tell you Rev. Mabry with his staff of united ministers is doing a great work for our race. The sisters of the Four Mile Field have also organized a Sisters' Auxiliary Union for t* d9^^^^ the ministers will fall in line also the Storm Branch Field and vic tory is sure.

Rain fell in big showers day after day and corn in most parts is doing well. This shows chat man's extremity is God's opportunity. 1 Rev, Wm. Moody, pastor of St. Paul is running a successful re vival meeting at his church and added 18 souls. We are truely sorry to say that the nefarious habit of nighl riding is being practiced in our vicinity by both ! white and black. We hope that this bad practice will soon find its end in more legal and serieus reflections. Oh what, a som brous future one see when in al most every nook and crook, that is, in some parts, a blind tiger ii operated, I mean distilling liquor or trying to do so.

Prof. W. D. Prince of Morris College worshipped with us Sun day all day. He represented Morris Coliege and its work at the morning service. A liberal after collection was given him for the school. In the evening, Prof. Prince addressed the B. Y. P. U. at which time he surpassed his morning* talk. Dr. Moore will leave for Ashe ville on his vacation next week. Aside from many personal do nations by members in apprecia tion for his first year's service to the church, the officers autho rized the treasurer to give him a check for $75.00 for expense money while on his vacation with the understanding that if that a mountdid not meet his require ments, he must notify the officers at the instance of which more money will be forth coming. This mildly bespeaks the high terms in which pastor Moore is held by his members. The church is in fine condition from every angle and the mem bers and friends are singing the praises of pastor Moore for rais ing more money in one year than any pastor that preceeded him in the same length of time. A correction : A typegraphical error appeared in our Anniver sary mention last week which made the amount of money rais ed during the week $25.50. The amount raised was $205.50 and others who were hot able to make their contributions are paying up.
