Always a Welcome Visitor-Preached Two Able Sermons to Large Audiences. On Sunday morning in the absence of the pastor, Dr. J. W. Wolling, the. pulpit of Central Methodist church, was occupied by Dr. W. W. Daniel, the gifted and cultured president of Columbia college. It was a great pleasure to the con gregation as well as to a laTge num ber of friends in the city to have Dr. Daniel preach on this occasion, and the church auditorium at both ser vices was filled. Dr. Daniel is one of the best preachers in the South Carolina con ference of the present day. He has unusually gracious pulpit manners, and his soft, melodious voice is dis tinctly heard .all through the congre gation. At both services Dr. Daniel received the undivided attention of his listeners. His sermon on Sunday morning was an able discourse on the promul gation of the gospel. He said that many arguments 'had been based on the question, "When will the end of time be?'' Dr. Daniel showed that Christ had said that time was only being prolonged in order that the gos pel might be pre-ached to all nations. He showed how men were retarding the plans of God that their own sel ish purposes might be accomplished, but that in the cou-rse of time this did not amount to anything lasting and that only those who cooperated with he plans of the Lord would abide. At the evening service Dr. Daniel's theme was "Fidelity to Truth." The basis of his remarks being that the 1uty of every man is to live up to he light that has been shown him, nd that he will be judged only ac :ording as he has been shown, but to he fullest.extent of the light as giv ?n. Dr. Daniel was at one time pastor )f Central Met-hodit church of this ity, and his numerous friends are delighted with the rise he has so ontinuously made and rejoice with iim-that the Lord's work continues to prosper in his hands. Dr. Daniel S an alumnus of Newberry college. W. C. T. U. CONTEST. Will Be Held at Central Methodist' Church on Friday Evening-The Program. The W. C. T.

The Baraca Classes of Clinton and NewberryL-Newberry Enter tains Clinton.

Some months ago a -contest was en tered by the two classes for the ban ner which would be given to the class showing the greatest increase in membership, average -attendance, and collection within a stated time. The contest proved to be a most enthus iastic one and a fine spirit of rivalry was shown which has naturally result ed in much good to both classes. In the end, the class in this city showed the greatest increase along the lines indicated, and on the day for present ing the banner to the Newberry class a large delegation came over from Clinton, and a banquet was given by the -class here.

At the close of this delightful pro gram the members of the Baraca. class then invited their guests and friends to go with them to the old court house and here the reception was continued until about 11:30. Delicious refreshments had been prepared by the Ladies Aid society and the banquet spread was -all that the most fastidious could expect, and the good ladies had arranged every t-hing so prettily and daintily that it added much to the pleasure and en joyment of everyone.

Preaches Three Strong Sermons in Second Baptist Church-Ser vices in Great Demand. Rev. C. V. Hidden. pastor of Bush River and Mount Zion churehes paid his promised visit to Newberry on Sunday, preaching three times at the Second Baptist church, Rev. J. F. McGill pastor. In the morning his sermon topic was "Jesus of Naza reth passes by,'"being based upon the healing of the blind beggar Barti maeas out on the highway beyondl Jerieho. Following the sermon he made an appeal for converts and eight persons raised their hands for prayers. In the afternoon his subject was "The Business Side of the Temper ance Question." and the speaker spoke long and earnestly upon what is evidently a favorite topie with him. He explained to his hearers the at titude the business world is taking in the crowding of the saloon and drinking men to the wall, and made the bold prediction that inten years from today the drinking man will be unable to obtain skilled employment, and that in twenty years the drunk ards of the country will be in a class by themselves, as clearly defined as the criminal, the pauper and -the in sane today. He paid a high tribute to the Southland for its mighty strid es in temperance legislation, told of the deep sentiment that is being aroused everywhere against the sa loon. and paid his tribute to the rum sellers and whiskey dealers in scath ing denunciation. He held that re spectability is not a factor in the sa loon business, that the liquor dealer cannot conduct his business decently, and maintained that the man who sells liquor is not a good fellow but a very bad fellow, the wickedest man in the community, in fact, because he not only ruins men, steaIs clothing 1 and food from helpless women and i children, but also robs God and heav- 1 en of clean, white souls. Following his appeal thirty persons signed the pledge. At night he held his farewell ser vice in Newberry for the. present, preaching upon the topie "It is I: Be. not Afraid," the story of Jesus walking on the sea This sermon like all the talks throughout the day, was replete in word painting and illustrations. but is picture of a storm at sea, used to precede the storm on the Galilean seay was particularly enjoyed. Two persons requested prayers at the close of the service. A profound impression was made on the people f Newberry by this short visit of Dr. C. W. Hidden. It is to be hoped that :he can come to us again in the near future. Dr. Hidden left on the noon train onday for UJnion, where he is to onduct revival services uip to and in luding Friday night. On Saturday be~ will speak on temperance at .the pinic at the Wadsworth school house nd on Sunday forenoon will preaeh to his people at Bush River; subject, "We have an Advocate." 'Some idea of th~e demand that is being created for Dr. Hidden's ser-i ices may be gleaned from the state rent that he has but twelve days free to September first. Plans are also] einz arranged th-at, if successfuly2 arried out, will take him on 'an even-, elistic tour of the world, starting in1 London in April next. Zoar High School Commencement. The steady progress of Zoar High school, aSluda county, may be noted by the yearly improvements in com mencement exercises. The exercises: of t'bis year were pronounced the best on record. Prof. Dorn has fin ished 'his eighth term here, and has brought through many difficulties by the cooperation of the people of thati etion. from a small winter school a splendid high school, known throughout the greater part of the, State. The crowning feature of thea commencement was the able sermon delivered by Rev. J. H. Harms, presi dent of Newberry college. A large crwd heard Rev. Harms and all were1 loud in their praises of his excellent and inspiring sermon. A Card of Thanks. Out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaketh and the speech is truth; the truth at all times is a1 thing of beauty; but in no instance have I ever known it to be more beautiful than when it is used to ex press the gratitude that I feel to Dr.1 Dominick of Prosperity, for .bis great hearted course in his treatment of my wife, who was sa severely burned a few weeks back, kind, tender and true, he. with the knowledge of his profession second to noe-has estab lished himself in my mind and those of a host of others-as a man among men and one after God 'a own heart.

C.. after an illness of three weeks from typhoid fever, occurred the death of Miss Carrie Young, aged 18 years, and the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Young, of the Pomaria section. This was Miss Young's first year at Mont Amoena although she was a junior in that institution, and she took high rank in her classes, having won the medal in mathematic for the elosing year.

She was a member of a large family connec bion in the Pomaria section, and other aortions of the State, and '-nr death is a peculiarly zad o,e. It seems a sail dispensation of prov dence that took away a life so young and T-zht and promising. and yet that li ',s now been transplanted into a bette world above, where the 3rave young spirit will never grow DId, and the sweet memory of her eld so dear by those she has left will always be that of one who was oung and fair and as the years come and go one by one the loved ones #ho now mourn fher dep9rture will ret her in ti' l'and of eternal rightness and all sorrow and sighing vill flee away. The commeneement exercises of Wfont Am mlena were to begin on Sn ay but mving to the death of this roung lady they were abandoned, and one of the exercises were had exeept :he acealaureate serman.
