The Review further says:
"Scores of citizens shook the hands
of Governor Blease while here, and
[wished him success, telling him they
admired him for standing like a stone

little chats the people had with Mr.

"Bleas-e has more admirers in High

Governor Ble:ise at Summerton.
Former Governor Blease delivered
an address at Summerton on Thursday
night, the Hth instant. He was
heard by a crowd variously estimated
at from 800 to 1,200 people. His address
was along political lines, the
former go-vernor expressing his well
( x known views. There was no personality
in the address, nor wras the name
of any political opponent or official
even mentioned. He criticised the general
assembly for the creation of useJess
offices, and for the waste of the
oeoDle's tax money. His address was
r effective, and was often punctuated
Tt was a very enjoyable occasion, and
even some of those who did not agree
with the former governor in his politica1
views spoke highly of the address
as a whole, pronouncing it one of the
(best ever delivered in Summerton.

The South Carolina synod has just

here was scarcely time for meals. A

body would bp hard to find than that

P. E. Monroe, starred the sessions

As ,is usual, things were done
verv hurriedly the last day. Many del-1
egates desired to catch the night train
for their homes, and synod ad.iourned
just about in time for them to do so
The next convention will be held in
St. John's church. Walhalla. This will
be in the fall of 1916, but the exact
date is left with the officers of .-ynod.

Summerland college and synod's debt
Synod was apportioner $2,500 annually
on current expenses for Newberry
college. An agent will be put in the
field to raise $25,000 to enlarge the
dormitory of Summerland college. This
is the first ti ne this latter institution
as asked anything of the church at
VATze. Svnod's debt is a problem with
which the body has wrestled for many
years. It has finally grown to $10,000
in round numbers. This is not a large
amount, but it has been growing, and
synod resolved to wipe out the whole
'thing as soon as possible. To this end
congregation will be asked to

work will demand the attention of this

went home seemingly determined to j
wipe out this debt, that synod may

All the old treasurers were re-electod,
Mr. A. H. Kohn, the faitthful treasurer
of synod's general funds, being
among the number.
Some new pastorates were formed. I

the church at Silverstreet and Mayer

be constituted a pastorate. After
liscussion, the matter was referred to
:he executive committee of home missions
and the officers of Newberry conference,

the other day and I think it has a
point that the editor who undertook
to throw off on the cub reporter did
not grasp, and a good point it is too
Read and then see if you do not agree
A news item in the Utica Press says:
"It is thought that the bullet was a
:tray one, but had it struck Mrs. Ahles, i
it would have wounded her as badly
is though it has been aimed at her."
3y George, the reasoning power of
johie cub reporters is absolutely marvelous.?New
are many bullets and they are
stray ones, too, that do damage just
as much as if they were aimed at the
victims. And they strike and hit and j

11 Li 1 L C4.ll kUV/ "*v* vy - ? j
they are not aimed at the victim. Many j
i stray bullet of words has done much j
more damage than if it had been aimed j
at some particular -victim. It's the
stray bullets that we want to avoid
if we can, but the trouble is we never
know when, they are coming nor from
which direction they come. The point
I want to make is that we should not
send the stray bullets forth whether
they be leaden or the other kind.
This rt-mindi me that 'some time ago
.he editor handed ine the following
clipping and said that a friend of
mine had &sked him to give it to me.
Xow, wh>', I wonder.
Why Is It!
Why is it. it is often asked, that
people in small towns can find no better
business than prying into other
ntople's business, and then exaggerating
tiie iruth in regard to the same.
People who pretend to be Christians,
"ho attend church regularly, who, in I
he sight of their neighbors are gei\
erous and cnaritaDie, yei wuo, wuuum

will so scandalize one as to ruin
his or her reputation for life. While
they would not steal from them worldgood's,
yet they rob him or her of
what is more precious than gold?a
good reputation. Why can't peopie
- /^U?in+in nifxr fVlof tllPV I

preach and "do unto others as thev
would have them do tanto them?"?Sel. I
Well, this is a case of sending some
stray bullets into space, and sometimes
they are not aimed at any particular
person, but they do the damage just
the same as if they had been aimed.
Now I am going to give you some wise
sayings?not mine, for I never pretend
to be wise, but some I have read?
and they will answer the paragraph
quoted in a way, or at least make one
think before he does wnat tnis quotation
says some of the amen (Christians
are charged with doing. And if you
can make them think they will be more
careful of what they say and what they
do. The point is to make people think..
We don't think half enough. If we
thought more many of us would be
silent more often. If we should stop
to think how foolish many of the
things we say sound we would keep
silent. If we stopped long enough to
think and to realize that many of the
bullets we send out in words can no:
be recalled and that they will do deadly
injury whether we aim them at any
particular object or not we would very
frequently not send them forth on
their death dealing mission. Listen to
some of these:
"What you keep by you, you may
change and mend; but words once
spoken can never be recalled."
That is worth remembering. Here
"A good word is an easy obligation,
"but not to speak ill requires only our
silence, which costs us nothing."
How about thac? Don't you thing it
fine? Here's another.
"Vituperation, abuse and villification
are as worthless as they are cheap,
and fortunately most harmful to those
who deal in them."
_4>nd that's true, so don't be worried
if there are people who want to attend i
to your business for you. And people
who pretend to be Christians. You!
know what the Great Teacher said j
about the Pharisee. It is as true to- J
dav as it was when He spoke it.!
'Then hore i? a good one.
"The people who build up communities

If you need some money put the cot!

I money at 6 per cent. It seems to me
that it would be a pleasant diversion

We have never known anything below
8 per cent in this country and I believe
if I had a little cotton I would
just borrow a little money at that rate

I it does look like the Southern farmer

did you ever see the banks so anxious

advertise in the newspapers that the/
want to let you have it. It would seem
to me that the farmer would never
again let himself get in the position
where he would have to be a suppliant
at the hands of the people who
sell money. He need not unless he j
just wants to. He made this crop very
cheap and he has more to eat for man
and beast than he has had in many
years, and when he remembers how the
situation was last year he-should keep
what he has and put himself even in
