Children, and" Church Attend
ance. -
Wh?n the writer was a boy it
was customary for the sous and
daughters to sit with fathers and
mothers when they attended
church. Not so now-a-days. The
children, if they attoud church at
all, sit where they please, behave
as tbfy please-and oftentimes
they please to talk and laugh du
ring service. When we atteud pub
lic worship in.the country church
es we see very few children sit
ting with their parents, as was
their wont some years ago. As to
atteuding churches in town, the
parents exeicise very jlittle or no
contiol over their childreu. We
call to mind, however, one notable
exception, which is indeed very
beautiful. One moLherJin Edgefield.
(whose husband is dead but whose
example still lives) who attends
church regularly ia allaya accom
panied by her three handsome,,
promising, manly sons. They go
with mother, sit with her, and re
turn to their home with her. Other
children and other parents would
do well to emulate this example.
If small girls and small boys are.
required lo ait under Ibo eyes
of father and mother, at all public
gatherings, when they develop
into young ladies and young mein
they will always deport themselves,
properly at eucb gathering.
Edjrefield Literary Ulah,
For several years a faithful few
of Edge?el?'s ?terateurs have
succeeded iu maintaining an or
ganization known as the Auf
Wietersehen club, meeting at regu
lar intervals tor their mutual de
lectation- and edification. While
much genuine pleasure bas been
deriv. diro'm this literary club by
those who composed itB member
ship, much lasting good has been
accomplished for the community
at large. The founding and main
Leuauce of the public library is
due solely to those faithfulladieS,
On Wednesday aitornoon last
the Auf Wiedersehen club met at
the home of Mrs. J. H. Tillman,
the president. Not only the mem
bers ol' the club but a goodly
number of other ladies, not for?
m^rly members, accepted t'.ie in
vitation tobe present. The follow
ing-officers were elected to. serve
for the ensuing year: Miss Linie
MioiB, president; Mrs. A. E. Pad
gett, vice-president.; Mrs. Susan
B, Hill, secretary ; Mrs, Beaure
gard Tim mons," treasurer ; Miss
Grace Tompkins, librarian. The
prc gramme committee is compos
Kd of Mrs. J. C. Sheppard, and
Mrs. J. H. Tillman. It was- sug
gested that the name of the -club
be changed, and after. some . dis
cussion pro and cou it was.ydeci.
ded tttat it be called io future
ltEdg/?fiel'd Literary Club/',: The
ehange was a very wise. one. The
new name appeals to the commiir
nity or town pride of our people
and .will probably arous'o the sym
pathy and co-operation of '.acgreat
er number.. Already more-* than
half a dozen new nameB have
been eurolled, aud fully a score or.
more of the young, middle-aged
and old ladies should join;
HE above picture pf the
man and fish is the trade
mark of Scott's Emulsion,
and is the synonym for
?trength and purity. It is sold
in almost all the civilized coun
tries of the globe.
If the cod fish became extinct
it would be a world-wide ?alan>
{ty, because the oil that ; comes
from its liver surpasses all other
fats in nourishing and life-giving
properties. Thirty years *?gq
the proprietors pf Scott's Emili*
pion' found a way of preparing
pod liver oil so that everyone eau
take it and get the full value of
the oil without the Qh^ectionable
taste. Scott's Emulsion is the
best thing in the world for weak,
backward children, thin, delicate
people, and ft!! conditions of
wasting and lost strength,

No other is so pleasant and safe
