The following program of divine ~rvices has been arranged for next uinday at the Lutheran church of the edeemer: 11 a. m.-The regular morning ser [ce with a special sermon by the pas >r on the subject, "The Chief Citiz 18: What They Can do to Make or~ lar Their City." Text, Luke 19:47: And He taught daily in the temple.; ut the chief priests and the scribes ad the chief of the people sought to estroy Him." The text is taken from ae gospel selected by the church for ie day. It is a gospel with a live, p-to-date message. Jerusalem was .iined by her "chief people," and any of our cities today are suffering reat evils brought on by their "chief tizens." Some things will be said iat, no doubt, the citizens of New erry should hear and think about. re have the power of making our ty or ruining it. There will be good, .usic at this service.

A fine orchestra is needed in a ty the size of Newberry, and New erry has the material to make a plendid orchestra if the members ill only stick to the organizatiox -nd ersevere in their practice with pat ~nce and determination. The forma on of the club as it stands promises s much. The West End concert band has emonstrated that such an organiza on can be a success here. In a letter to County Chair;an ~ominick Rev. Coke D. Mann, candi ate for congress, announces that he -ill speak in Newberry on Saturday HAPPY FAXILY REUNION. The Lesters of No. 9 Township HaTe A Pleasant Home Gathering of Family and Friends. On Friday, July 22, there was an interesting gathering at the home of. Mr. J. M. Lester, known to his' friends as "Jud," the occasion being t,he home coming of his brother Thompson Lester from Spartanburg after an absence of three years; and this was a reunion of his mother's family. Aunt Hannah is one of the most loved and honored names in the St. Lukes section of county. She has liv ed more than half a century on this same homeland where her children assembled Friday. Though her years now number 82,1 she is wonderfully fresh in mind and! active in body. Her bright, cheerful face bears the stamp of years of pa tient, loving service to those who needed her care; and there was an unusual beam of happiness about itl this day as she looked out upon her children, and their children, for there were four generations present and her guests numbered forty-six. The following were present: Mr. and Mrs. Marcus Lester with their little family of five, Willie, Mc., Bonnie, Hattie Bell, Violet and Mar cus Herman. Mr. Thompson Lester and his two daughters, merry-eyed Jennie and Sue. Mrs. Abbie Dominick, the only daughter, with her two daughters, Misses Estelle and Ailey, charming girls, and her sons Esmond and Has kell. Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Dominick, their little family of five open the fourth gen4ration. Barney, Bertha, George, Mary, Guy. Then Mrs. Elbert Hunter and their four, little Betsy, Elbert Hayne, Sam uel Young, Walter Lester. Mr. and Mrs. James Lester com pleted the family group. The other guests were: Mrs. Lizzie Hunter and her sons and daughters, these being connected by close ties of long friendship and marriage. Mr. Thompson Hunter, Mrs. McLeod, of Lexington; Mrs. Robertson, of New berry; Miss Dolly Davis and Miss Fannie Minick. One of the most attractive features of the day was the picnic dinner which was spread under the shading' branches of two towering pines. Their carpet of brown needles seem ed all ready for the occasion, and made an ideal banqueting place. When the well filled baskets were opened there was a feast indeed of all the good things good housekeepers can devise for such occasions, and keen appetites did justice to their preparations. After dinner the useful little kodac was used to preserve souvenirs of this happy reunion, and afforded much amusement. And most interesting were the tw old family Bibles, shown to the Writ er by our hostess. It is with pride that she notes the long line of ancestors whose names date back into days before the Amer ican Revolution. Mrs. Hannah L.ea ter was the daughter of Thompson Young and aPtsy Hawkins; the quaintness of the latter name ss gests Quaker blood, and so there was. Her great-grandfather, James Young, came from old Ireland, and at his death in 1802 was the first person buried in the old cemetery at Pros nerity. Many interesting incidents of famn fly *:fe and history were related. Thus sped the hours of the day until the slanting rays of the evening sun re minded all that 'twas time to say the usual good-byes. But it was with re luctance that the guests separated, and there were many sincere expres sions of pleasure and appreciation for the opportunity afforded to treasure up such dear recollections. An Honored Guest. BLEASE'S EUREKAS. They Again Demonstrated Their Abil ity When They Cradled Prosper ity to a Serious Tune.

Portland, Me., July 26.--President - Taft today put himself on record as subscribing absolutely to the prin ciple that a president of the United States should not talk politics. He landed at Rocklaiid this morning to] make the last speech of his cruise. Maine is seething with politics. The elections are to be held September ' 12. Rockland is the home of ex-Gov William T. Cobb, who is a candidate for the United States senate to suc ceed Senater Hale. Mr. Taft spoke to a large crowd from an automobile in which he had taken a ride about the city and suburbs. He "drifted" closer to a political deliverance than at any other t during the trip. The harbor at Rock land, the big granite breakwater and 4 the ships behind it, hiad brought ship subsidy to the president's mind. Can't Keep Off It. "They suggest to me," he said, "the importance of our coastwise shipping. They also suggest the importance of improving our foreign shipping. All . of which brings me so near to politics so that I merely suggest it and leave it with you." The president paused a moment and said: "But traveling as I am, as presi dent of the United States, I have no right to be other than president of the whole people and to stand only on theI platform of patriotisin, love of coun- I try and prosperity for all." The pesidents sentiments drew :heers from the crowd. He said good-bye and was whirled away. What's He Going For? In view of the speaking trip which s scheduled in Ohio and other Middle Nestern States this fall, his state nent of how a chief magistrate of he nation should eschew politics was raught with particular interest. Mr. Taft visited the limestone quar -ies and watched the preparations for he manufacture of cement. He sug rested in his speech that if the peo )le of Rockland hurried up they night get in on some of the big ce nent contracts for the Panama canal. "That great work," he added, "will >e completed on or before January , 1915. It will double the efficiency )f our navy and change the course >f trade to our benefit." From Rockland the Mayflower drop )ed down to Casco bay this afternoon knd was cruising this evening off this :ity. The president's ankle was vastly mproved today and his limp was iar4ly noticeable.
