JOHNSTON LETTER.
(Continued from First Page.)
then called) was the grandmother
of Mrs. L. C. Latimer, the Pres. of |
the Johnston Missionary Society.
Mrs. Tillman also gave the Institute
report. The last one was held at
Denmark, and the one of next May f
will be held at Aiken. She urged all
to go, as it was so centrally located
for the Western Division. These!
institutes mean so much to the j
union, for they are a school where j
one can learn about the work and
how to prosecute it. Miss HeckV
message was read and all stood
while this was being received. Fol
lowing this several spoke of the life j
of Miss Heck and Mrs. Carpen-j
ter, who had attended the funeral
services told this, and of how beau
tiful this sainted woman looked to
her as she gazed upon her for the last j
time, clad in her Jubilate robe.
The associational policy was read
by Mrs. Etheredge. She gave as the
watchword, "Have faith in God,"
and the aim, "To investigate, en
large, develop." The monied aim:
$197C. Mission Study was to be]
more emphasized and wished all
to engage in personal service, and
the Standard of Excellence was to
be the ideal. Societies were to
meet the apportionments before giv
ing to other objects.
The Sunbeam hour during the |
afternoon was in charge of Mrs. W.
J. Hatcher, Asso. Supt, and this
was very interesting. The Bible
lesson was recited by all the little
Sunbeams who occupied the front,
and Mrs. Hatcher gave an impres
sive talk illustrated by a grapevine,
bearing fruit. The Supt's, health
has not permitted ber to give her
undivided time as heretofore inj
her work. The Johnston Band, of |
which she is leader, she stated, had
labored under many difficulties, and
for the first time in 12 years would
not get the banner. The Batesburgj
Band having exceeded it, appor
tionment would take the honors.
The Richland Springs Band had
done a beautiful work in paying the]
Hospital bill of a little Sunbeam.
Mrs. Hatcher stated that in 12 years
the Johnston Band had raised
$1221.13. The banner was pre
sented to the Batesburg band by
Mrs. Tillman, the white of the
banner, she stated was for purity,
the gold for light. "It is said that |
coming events cast their shadows
before them," but she thought it
should be "cast their lights before
them," for these coming women will
indeed be a light. 25 years from
now the present laborers will be,
perhaps ashamed to let these see
jnst how and what they did. How)
much it means to have them in
training now. The Sunbeams gave
in all $191.60. "The Pageant"
which was arranged by Mrs. Hatch-j
er, was impressive and greatly en
joyed. During the open conference
Mrs. Hatcher told that South Caro
lina stood first for having the great
est number of Societies attaining!
the standard of excellence. In gifts j
she ranks fourth. Texas, Virginia,
and Georgia leading- She is second
for gifts for thank offering and
churches. The Y. W. A. of South
Carolina stands fourth, and Georgia
leads in the Southern Baptist con
vention. The report on obituaries
was read by Mrs. P. N. Lott, while
the bodv stood. Seven members
had crossed over the River to rest
from their labors.
The evening session was given
over to the "Royal Ambassadors,"
and their State Leader, Mrs. Edwin
Carpenter, brought an inspiring
message. Their reports showed
good work and that their ranks]
were filled with real embassa
dors.
On Wednesday morning the first J
hour was given to the Y. W. A.
and every report of the 11 Y. W. j
A's. showed every auxiliary engag
ed in some work that will bear fruit.
If a banner had been offered Good
Hope Y. W. A. would have gotten
it, for the apportionment was ex
ceeded by half. The apportionment
for all was $127 and $137.38 was
given.
A very interesting feature was
the minyon study demonstration by
itcher. Just how a class
organized was shown and
^y excuses that are generally
jere all done away v/ith.
12 of the convention delegates took
part in this illustrative organiza
tion, and later a short lesson was
gone through with, and the climax
wis reached when a princess from
India (Mrs. Tillman) dressed in
costume came in and told of the
horrors of the lives of these i iris the
class was discussing. To any pres
ent, who did not know how to con
duct or organize a Mission Study
class, there will now be no further'
trouble.
Tho noon hour prayer was con
ducted by Mrs. Tillman, and a song |
message brought by Miss Nannie
Ounter.
The Edisto academy was to have
boen presented by Mrs. Cannada,
whose husband is Supt., but as she
was not present, Rev. Posey took
her place and made an earnesl
peal. He asked that the W. M
of the Ridge Association fur
thc large range for the kite
which will cost $100. A portio
this was immediately raised,
many of t?>e delegates stated
matter named be laid before t
societies, and no doubt the t
will soon be raised.
During the afternoon session,
ports of committees and electioi
officers occupied the time, Mrs
C. Latimer being chairman of n
inating committee. The officers ?
elected as follows:
Supt. Mrs Alvin Etheredge,
Inda.
Pres. Mks Chloe Nichols

pointed, and a beautiful praj
closed the meeting. At 3 o'cloi
there was an open meeting and I
Joseph G. Camp made one of 1
eloquent appeals for Prohibits
All who heard him were greal
impressed.
A word as to the hospitality
the good people of Ridge. Ea
delegate had the very best home
all, and cars were at their dispos
and enjoyable rides were had ov
this beautiful and fertile section.
Each day of the session temptii
lunches were served in the lari
cool open pavilion which the ladi
of the church have had erected

tion of this was a happy thoug
on the part of the ladies.

The monthly of the W. C. T. I
was held on Friday afternoon i
the home of Mrs James White wit
a good attendance, and upon th
arrival of each, the hostess pinne
a white bow on. The conventio
delegates each had remembered t
wear the white bow, for Mrs Weec
and her "white ribbon flopper" ha<
impressed them. The feature o
the meeting was the report fron
the State convention at Allendah
each delegate telling what most im
pressed her, and so a full accoun
was heard. The next meeting wil
be held with Mrs J A Dobey.
On Sunday morning at the Bap

The school auditorium was well
filled on Monday morning with in
terested friends and patrons wit
nessed the opeuing exercises of the
High School. The present prospect
is the most pleasing in the
history of the school, with
all its equipments, being added to
meet the Domestic Science Dept.,
and Moral Training:. Prof. Wil
liam F. Scott, the Supt., is doing
a splendid work here along educa
tional lines, and with him is an ex
cellent corps of teachers for the va
rious ll grades. Prof. Scott in his

elected to teach in the school at
Harmony.
Mr. Gary Satcher and Miss Anita
Bolton, of Augusta, 'spent Sunday
here in the home of Mr. W. W.
Satcher.
The condition of Mrs. Lizzie
Smyly is a source of sorrow to her
relatives and friends, and it is feared
that she will never be up from Iber
bed of sickness. She is now 82
years of ag i and during the sum
mer her health has rapidly failed.
We Must Both Make More and
Save More.
Now another word about the
thrift side of the question. We
have already pointed out that we in
the South cannot save as largely as
New England saves until we begin
to produce as largely as new Eng
land produces-and that means that
we must educate and train our peo
ple better. Governor Aycock of
North Carolina us^d to make this
clear in his educational campaign:
"When you buy manufactured
articles, you buy them from Massa
cbu83tt8, and you pay for labor
worth four dollars a day; but you
pay in the products of your own la
bor, which is worth fifty cents a
day. Now, what does this mean?
Why, that you must give eight days
of your labor for one day of that of
the man in Massachusetts. This is
because Massachusetts has thorough
ly educated and trained her peo
ple to Work, and North Carolina
has not."
This is in line with what The
Progressive Farmer has been preach
ing-that the farmer in the North
and West simply by better methods
of farming makes $500 more a year
than the Southern farmer (as shown
by official census figures) and it's
up to us to educate young and old
till we also get this extra $500 a
year.
But even with conditions as they
are there is absolutely no excuse for
having it true that in the one State
of Massachusetts there are five
times as many depositors in savings
banks as there are in twelve South
ern states combined. If we can't
save much, we can save little-and
it is the habit of saving that counts.
The chief religious duty in Massa
chusetts used to be to go to church
on Sunday morning; now it seems
to be to make a savings bank de
posit on Saturday night. Every
savings bank stays open Saturday
evening-the Amherst Savings
Bank, for example, has the sign:
"Banking hours 9 to 3; Saturday 9
a. m. to . Midnight"-and as soon
as a Massachusetts boy is old enough
to grow a conscience it begins to
trouble him on Sunday mornings if
he didn't put something in the
bank the night before.
One trouble with us in the South
isthat we .think too much about a
bank as being a place to get money
out of, instead of as a place to put
money in; and it would be better,
as Dr. Butler recently suggested, if
we said that it is * a rural banking
system" that we need rather than a
rural credit system-for it must
embody the deposit and saving fea
ture as well as the credit and bor
rowing feature.
Let every Southern farmer who
can possibly do so start a bank ac
count this fall, even if he has only
$5 to begin with.-Progressive
Farmer.
COLDS DO NOT LEAVE WILLINGLY
Because a cold is stubborn is no
reason why you should be. Instead
of "wearing" it out, get sure relief
by taking Dr. King's New Discov
ery. Dangerous bronchial and lung
ailments often follow a cold which
has been neglected at the beginning.
As your body faithfully battles
those cold germs, no better aid can
be given than the use of this reme
dy. Its merit has been tested by
old and young. Get a bottle to
day. 50c. and $1.00.-3.
