TELL OF CONVENTION.
Talks at Lutheran Church on Sunday
Morning by Laymen's Movement
At the Lutheran Church of the Re
deemer on Sunday morning, there
were several interesting talks by gen
tlemen who had' attended the big. lay
men's convention recently held in
Salisbury. This movement, which has
in recent years taken on large pro
portions, is one by men in th"2 church,
in all vocations of life, for the evange
lization of the world. It is a move
ment which is being carried forward
on business principles. The Churcn
of the Redeemer is represented on the
executive committee by Dr. George B.
Cromer, chairman, and by Dr. 0. B.
The talks at the church on Sunday
morning were made by Dr. John B.:
Setzler, Dr. W. G. Houseal, Mr. J. B.
Hunter -and Dr. George B. Cromer,
and were followed by lessons by the
Rev. Mr. Fulenwider, taken from the
recently issued missionary map,
which was exhibited. In the talks,
made by the delegates to the conven
tion, there was a gratifying note of
pride in the great success of the con
vention and of the movement.
. It was brought out during the
course of the addresses that the
Church of the Redeemer has contri
buted more largely to this movement
than any other congregation in the
United Synod of the South, and that
South Carolina has contributed about
half of the amount which has been
necessary to carry it on, though there
are four other States in the synod-1
Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia and
The addresses were interesting and
instructive. The convemnicn was un

PROF. TATE TO VISIT \EWB IRRY.
Supervisor of Rural Schools Will Give
Three Days to Newberry County
and Attend Association.
The County Teachers' association,
which meets regularly on the second
Saturday in each month, and which
had decid.xd to hold the next regular
meeting at Prosperity, will be post
poned until the last Saturday in
larch, the 30th. This postponement
has been made by the officers of the
association, at the suggestion of the
county superintendent of education,
in ord"r that Prof. W. K. Tate, super
visor of the elementary rural schools,
may be present at the meeting.
Mr. Tate is to give three days to
Newberry county, beginning on Wed
n-esday, March 27, and these will be
devoted to visiting the rural schools.
In his letter to the county superin
tendent he says:
"I have entered on my calendar the
remainder of the week beginning
Wednesday, March 27, for a visit to
Newberry county. We can visit
schools together for three days and on
Saturday, if you 'wish, you can call a
meeting of teachers or trustees, or
both for Newberry. I shall have a
lantern and pictures with me to make
suggestions to fit the case described
by Mr. Hand."
The county superintendent of edu
cation says, in speaking of this change
in the meeting and Prof. Tate's visit:
"I am anxious to have Mr. Tate visit
as many of the rural schools as pos
sible in the different sections of the
county. Prof. Tate is prepared to give
illustrated lectures on his visits, and
will also take photographs of the
schools visited, and if the weather
conditions are favorable, I hope to
arrange so that four ar five may be
visited each day. A program and
itinerary will be announced in ample
time, and I hope that at each school
we may have present patrons, as- well
as trustees, and I am sure they will
enjoy Prof. Tate's visit. We will close
with the meeting at Prosperity, and
I want as many trustees as possible
present. The meeting will be held at
10.30 o'clock, in the Prosperity high
school building, and Prof. Tate's lec
ture wiil well be worth your time and
"Mr. Tate is full of energy, and is
enthusiastically interested, and very
much in earnest in his work for the
betterment of the rural schools; sc
much so that he has turned .down
several offers of increased pay which
have come to him since,he has been in
"Just what itinerary will be adopt
ed these three day' in this county
will be, announced through the pa
prs in time so that everybody in the
community may meet him at th~
school visited and lose but little time.
We will endeavor to adhere strictly to
the schedule agreed upon."

The county superintenldent of edu

in order to talk over school conditio".3
and make suggestions as to the bet
terment of those conditions. He will
be present at Long Lane, Miss Ethel

POST J BANQUETS.
Newberry T. P. A.s Had President J.
C. Lanham as Their Guest of
Honor on Friday Night.
Having as its guest of honor, State
President .. C. Lanham, of Summer
ton, Post .J, T. A. P., on Friday night I
tendered a banquet to its members at
the Newberry hotel, and it is needless
to say that the occasion was one of
the .most enjoyable in the history of
the local post. Mr. Chas. P. Pelham,
proprietor of thea Newberry, and up
to a few years ago one of the State's (
most popular and best known travel
ing men, exerted every effort to give (
these knights of the grip the "best in 4
stock," and right well did he succeed.
The banquet was served in five 1
Post J. is the baby post of South
Carolina, and while it is probably the
smallest, State President Lanham says
that "it makes up in quality what it
lacks in quantity." This was Mr. Lan
ham's first appointment since he was
elected State president.
At the conclusion of the feast, and
while the members were enjoying
their cigars, Mr. E. M. Evans, local
president, called upon President Lan
ham for a talk, to which he responded
in a most interesting half hour's
speech. His remarks were chiefly in
reference to the mileage question,
which has been the bone of contention
for several, years. He was gratified
that the present legislature passed
the mileage bill for which the State
organization has been contending. He .
hoped that no member of the T. P. A.
would be "fool enough to purchase the
'penny scrip'", which is contemplated
by the railrgads. "They are trying to
hand us a lemon," said the State
president. Mr. Lanham stated that
the traveling men are not fighting the
railroads, but on the other hand they
are the "ambassadors to the rail
roads." He was glad that the gover
nor had allowed the bill to pass, and
stated that Governor Blease's remarks
to the effect that a "flat two-cent rate
would be much more acceptable" were
Mr. Lanham made many friends in
Newberry during his short stay here,
and it is the hope of the local post
that he will come often. He left Friday
morning for Greenwood, where' he will
pay his official visit to the post in that
