stand firmly for the high standard of

the goal to be sought? Who is the
ideal woman in the eyes of the majority
of the young women of today?
Is she not the girl that has fine
clothes, plenty of money to spend,
and a good easy time? The lighthearted,
flippant, novel-reading, chew- j
ing gum girl, not only has many admir- j
ers but many followers. To dress j
well, have money, talk well, and have
an easy time are all right in their
place, but they are not all of life, they
are not the ideals towards which you
should aspire. At best they are poor |
commendations. We call your atten- j
tion tonight to some things higher,
and nobler, and better, and these are i
your best recommendations.
"(1). Be a true Christian,
k ? - .
I "The heignt or ever gin s ajnuiuon
\ should be to be a follower of Jesus of
Nazareth. He has made you what you
are. A Christian not simply for your
own sakes, but for the sake of the
world. You have the power tp make
Christian men. What a fine thin? for!
. any woman when the Christian world j
can point to her and say, as Paul said
of Phoebe?"Our Sister."
"(2). Be a worker in the church.
"Paul said of Phoebe, ""Who helps in !
the work of the church at Cenchrea." !
"You can do nothing finer, and cer- :
tainly nothing that will so commend |
you to the world, as to be a helper in i
-the work of the Christian church.;
There are young ladies in Newberry!
tonight who would not think of teach- I
ing a Sunday school class, or attendin
z a. missionary society, or going out
in the name of the church to comfort!
and help those in need, this would be j
demanding too much of their time, j
Yet, what better thing could they do?;
Let me warn you. There are women |
today who grew up careless and indifferent
about the work of the church,
they have become wives and mothers.!

"(3). Be an angel of mercy.
"Paul said of Phoebe, "A succourer j
of many, and of myself also." It is j
probable that she was a deaconess, j
? one that went about doing good, help-1
ing where help was needed. What a
fine recommendation! Who would not
covet it? After all this is wThat counts
for greatness. Who are those women
whose names live today? Not the so- I
ciety girl who spends the precious mo- j
ments of her life in frivolity and idlei
ness. Not those women of great j
wealth who must seek excitement and
pleasure in buying and selling hus-!
bands. But such names as Phoebe, the j
deaconss of Cenchrea; Florence
Nightingale, the angel of mercy in the
f!ri,mftan war: Frances F. Willsrd the
great temperance leader; Clara Bar- j
ton, the founder of the Red Cross society,
that has ministered to thousands
of wounded and dying soldiers on the
great battlefields of the world, and
hundreds of other names that cannot
be mentioned tonight.
"II. Paul's call upon the Christians
of Rome to receive and assist Phoebe.
"Here is a splendid message for this j
vast audience here tonight. Nothing
is so inspiring as a band of young people,
and I take it tonight that most
* people want to see them do well, and
succeed in life, for they must soon
shoulder the burdens that you are carrying.
But, men and women, you who
are already out in life and in life's
battles, I would call upon you to remember
that you have much to do
with their success or failure. They
may have the greatest virtus, highest
ideals, and finest ambitions, and, yet,
, you may cause them to fail.
* "P*.ul said to the Christians at
Rome, "I commend our sister Phoebe
to your care." They could make her j
journey a success or failure. More:
than you are inclined to think the j
vounsr neonlf. that launch out into life !
are in your "care," and the attitude
you take towards them will mean
"Paul said, "Give her a welcome?
? one worthy of Christ's people." What
fcind of a welcome are you giving vcrr
young people? Some are receiving
ihem as Christians should, but many
are giving them a welcome to things
not best for true manhood and womanhood.
There are men and women ;
in Newberry tonight who, instead of 1
setting a good example to the young,
are leading such lives and wielding ]
Inflnonno T V> o f ? !) ] tli/im
OUVll iiiiiuviivv. IJLACH "in AC7?,v* cnv;ii
astray. Paul said "as becometh the ]
people of Christ." Are we welcoming
our young people, and treating them \
as becometh the people of Christ? Or j
are we acting toward them like heath- ]
"Paul called upon the Christians at j *
Rome to aid Phoebe in whatever bus- |
iness she would need their assistance, j"
Iii6tead of trying to pull our young i
people down and hold them back, we, j,
with kind Christian spirit and gener- j
osity, should try to help, and encour-! j
age them in their efforts to do some- ! i
thing in life.
"Not many years ago I heard a
prayer that impressed me greatly. A (
prominent physician in a prominent *
communitf had died, and great crowds !
had gathered in the church to pay!
a last tribute of Christian 'love and respect
to his memory. The minister j
said, "Oh, God, we thank thee for the
+ VI 1 AM/} flVOYMnTfl '
l/C-cl U H JL UI Vliuouaii liiC <ilIU CAauiyit I
of our departed brother. We thank
Thee for these dear little children of j
his, may they grow up and follow the !
example set by their godly father, and | *
may the world be kind to them that'(
they may succeed in life in the things j"
that are best". Then he said, "Wei*
pray Thee Heavenly Father, that no ! *
man or woman may ever be base |
enough to set a stumbling block in j
their pathway to keep them out of the ;"
kingdom of God where the spirit of
their father has gone." And to this
audience tonight, in behalf of these j
young people, my prayer to Almighty !
God is that no man or woman may j
ever be base enough to set an example |
that will keep them from -the highest I
and best in life, and thus from enter- ,
ing in through the pearly "gates into
the City of Gold." "

? TRINITY EXHIBITION. <S>
? By J. H. Chappell. <S> j
V V V vvvvvvvvvv V V ? - .
"The Nation" gathered togather on
tfay 22, 1912, to see the beautiful exercises
of the closing of the Trinity
>chool. It was an ideal night?no
;loud to hinder the moon from shediing
its beautiful silvery rays over the
'Nation." Indeed that, I think, is quite
in appropriate name, for you never
;aw so many children in all your life.
Trinity is noted for producing good
lingers, and they seemed at their best
)n this occasion.
The exercises commenced with a j
lialogue beautifully rendered by Pitts '
Schroder, Bernice Stilwell, Walter |
^dams, Norman Martin, Madison Dav-;
inport and Evelyn Stilwell. Next was \
'America," sung by school, and they J
iid full justice to young America in j
endering the same.
"A Little Boy's Lecture," by Virgil
Stilwell, was indeed good.
I think Col. E. H. Aull was introluced
next, and he made one of those I
eloquent speeches which comes so i
>asv to the colonel, that I am begin- j
ling to think that he is hard^ to beat
ls a stump speaker. His address was 1
veil received, and from what you
:ou!d hear whispering around the 1
grounds they are well pleased with
lim as superintendent of education. I
leard several say that he had given
he country schools fine attention.
"Arthur's Bravery" was next, and
" ~ Til-? /VM O V\ A! /I
ltJ, IliU&l UU V O, put U1I CC UU1U JLU^V/
in-til the ghost came, and Arthur left.
"Sunshine or Shower" came next,
ind was real good.
"What is a Gentleman"?Dialogue !
>y Wilfred Martin, Geo. W. Hendrix.
?arl Schroeder, and Frank Adams'
vould make a gentleman in the truest |
;ense of the word. "Whipping John- j
lie," by Xancy Stilwell and Herbert;
longshore, was indeed good. "Reverie
n Ohiirnh." a recitation bv Mariorie
Hartin, was next. "What They Will
)o," by Virgil Stihvell and Summer
longshore was a nice dialogue.
"The Dolly Show," dialogue by!
3auline Stilwell, Julia Adams, Hattie ,
davenport, Hazel Davenport, Elsie:
^itts, Evelyn Stilwell, Cora Lee Hen- j
Irix, Madison Davenport and Kenneth
tfartin, was quite good. "Little Pitch- I
:r," dialogue by Earl Schroeder,
Gladys Stilwell, Emma Longshore, t
tfarjorie Martin, was also quite inter- j
"Come, Come, Come," song by the j
:r?hrw~il woo "inst snlcmdiri. "T_.itt.lp I
Jatch," boy tableau, was next. Then
:ame "A Slight Misunderstanding," a
lialogue which was very strongly preented
by Effie Bishop and Geo. W.
lendrix. You know all the Bishops are
rood speakers, and so was George
lendrix. I was sitting beside Mr.
iishop, when his beautiful daughter j
;eemed to be at her best, and when I j1
tiquired who she was, the old gentle- I
nan said, "That's my daughter." I '

"Mamma's Little Market Woman,"
recitation by Elsie Pitts, was also
:ood. "Single Life" was next well (
endered. "A Little Girl's Lecture to '
Iother" was a recitation by Mattie j'
pp "Rishon. who showed Quite a de
;ree of oratory, which characterizes j
he Bishops. "Parliamentary Law" j I
ras quite a success. The "Invitation," s
ialcgue by Mattie Lee Bishop and <
Cenneth Martin, wras good. 'Mischie'ous
Mattie" was splendidly rendered
?y Effie Bishop, Nancy Stilwell, Marorie

HYDE ELECTROCUTED JULY 5.
Wish to be Fir>t Electric Chair Vic-1
tim Granted by Court.
Anderson, June 1.?Samuel X. Hyde, i
the wife murderer, convicted here a i
year ago, was resentenced today, by j*
Judge Prince, to die by electrocution f
July 5. Hyde came into the court i
room smiling and joking with the de- ^
puties and at no time during the ?
morning aia ne snow me sugniest i
worry, even when Judge Prince read f
to him the fatal sentence. He had ex- f
pressed the desire to he the first to die k
by electrocution in the State and made !
this request to the judge, who inform- ^
ed him that the apparatus would not
be completely installed until the latter
part of the month and might not
be in good working order and he knew
that he would not want them experimenting
with his body and perhaps
making a bungling job of it.
Hyde replied that he had no objec- j
uon 10 uiem cAjjtriiiiiciiuug wiui nis j
body, and expressed the opinion that j
it was as good for that purpose as any j
other, therefore Judge Prince granted i
his request and set July 5 as the day
