The annual meeting of the Edist district, United Daughters of the-Cor federacy, held at Williston on Tues day of last week was well represent ed by the Francis Marion Bamber chapter, of this city. Those attenc ing were: Mesdames G. F. Hair, C E. Bamberg, Harry Murphy, Robei Black, G. F. Bamberg, John Coone and B. W. Simmons. Good Fellowship Smoker. The good fellowship meeting of th Business Men's Bible class in Guild hall on Thursday night was attenc ed by some fifty members and friend of this growing and enthusiast: class. Over the coffee cups and cigar; the men discussed their work an made plans for larger things. Er thusiastic talks, straight to the poir were made by Messrs A. B. Utsey, . C. Guilds. A. W. Knight, H.

I Rhoad, chairman. Live suggestions were made t Sheriff Ray concerning practical cha ity work, and Mr. Ray was mac chairman of a committee to look a ter raising and dispensing funds f( that purpose. Possibly the most enthusiast thing of the evening was in decidin to extend a challenge to the men class of St. Paul's, Orangeburg, f( an attendance contest through tl' month of May. The St. Paul's churc has a membership more than twi< as large as that of the Trinity churc in Bamberg, and the town of Orang burg being much larger than Ban berg, numerically, it looks like tl odds are against the Business Men class in such a contest, but at pre ent the class in Bamberg outnumbe: that in Orangeburg by five or ten, ar if entnusiastic work counts, Orang burg will have to bestir herself 1 beat the Bamberg class. The cla calls for every man in Bamberg ar surrounding country, not identify with any other Bible class, to con to their support.

Kntertalnments Kaclt May. I I The Bamberg Chautauqua festival j is in full swing as we go to press. | 14 The attractions furnished by the bu- j reau are first class in every particu-j lar, and are voted the best things i 1_ that have been brought to Bamberg. >r The programme combines in delight-1 ful proportions the elements of fun. U instruction, and inspiration. The fun iy is of that delicious order that makes it you "happy around the heart," rather than the broad sort that makes! 5t the guffaw. So far each programme i 3f seems just a little better than the J ir one before it. Bamberg is to be n congratulated upon the entertainment furnished. All classes, all ages and re conditions enjoy these days of for-i _ I getfulness of care and thought of | Lg ~ higher things. No higher tribute could be paid such an entertainment ^ than that of a little eight-year-old who regretted that ten-months'-old ' baby sister was not there, for "she J would have laughed." ~ Athletic Events. 1 The athletic events of educational d day brought out a large and enthusiastic crowd to Rhoad's park.

Dr. ^ J. Walter Daniel, of Charleston, deto livered an address replete with wit ss and suggestive wisdom. He used ld the great war of Europe as the basis ^ of his suggestions as to preparedness ^ life He traced the cause of the war to the preparedness for war of Germany, and urged preparation not ie for destruction, but for construction. On Tuesday, Hon. A. F. Lever, member of congress and chairman t0 of the agricultural committee, deliv>y ered an address that showed firm s" grasp, clear insight, and high ideals as to the great practical problems IWSSKK SKKVI( K. Will Itegin on the B., K. AL- \V. S:in- j * day. May by A. ('. L. " Officials of the Bamberg. Ehrliardt and Walterboro railroad announced yesterday that beginning on Sunday, ( May 2nd. a passenger train service will be inaugurated between Bamberg and Green Pond. As yet the schedule has not been definitely arranged. Mr. Murchison, district passenger agent ! of the Atlantic Coast Line, is expected in the city from Charleston with- | in the next few days to go over the situation and arrange a schedule. The passenger service will be put on by the Atlantic Coast Line railway. which has leased the B., E. & W. The freight service will probably be changed in schedule at the same time the passenger service is started, but the schedule has not yet been announced. Trains will be operated from this place through to Green Pond where connections will be made for Charles- ' ton trains of the Coast Line. The passenger service will provide a great convenience to the people of the county, and will place the people of Ehrhardt and the lower section of ' the county in easy access to the ' county seat. Miss Blanche Hair Queen. i Tuesday the balloting closed for , the queen of the chautauqua festival, , and Miss Blanch Hair was declared , to be the queen, with Misses Gladjts | Free, Kate Rentz and Lalla Byrd as maids of honor. The votes stood as . follows: i .Miss Blanche Hair 9,796. , Miss Gladys Free 3.785. ( Miss Kate Rentz 3,721. ( Miss Lalla Byrd 2,391. . of our nationai life, with special ref- ' erence to rural conditions. 1 On Wednesday, Hon. B. D. Carter ! delivered an address direct and pointed as to general conditions in ' Bamberg and possible improvements. Misses Parrott and Richardson, of ' the State demonstration work in do mestic science, made addresses and gave practical demonstrations that 1 were received with appreciation by a 1 goodly audience. The Automobile Parade. By far the leading feature of the Chautauqua festival was the automo- , bile parade yesterday morning. The , large number of automobiles enter- , ed were gorgeously decorated, and ; the parade presented a magnificant j spectacle, doubtless the prettiest ever ] witnessed in Bamberg. In addition to the large number of automobiles ( in the parade, there were a number * of other vehicles, including a goat- ] team, a wheelbarrow, and numbers , of prettily decorated bicycles. The ] parade was led by the queen and her J escorts, beginning at the court house ( square and proceeding to the graded school, then across to Carlisle street, down to the Carlisle school, where Miss Blanch Hair was crowned queen, , accompanied by her maids of honor, . Misses Lalla Byrd, Kate Rentz and Gladys Free. The ladies cannot be commended too highly for their un- ' tiring efforts in getting up the pa- , rade, which brought large crowds to ^ the city, and much praise is due all ^ the members of the committees and . the various merchants and business , houses which contributed to the sue- ^ cess of the occasion. The prize for ( the best decorated machine, $5.00 .was awarded to LaVerne Thomas & . co., and the second prize was award- ( ed to Dr. H. F. Hoover's machine. Every Feature Good. < Every feature of the programme , was good. Some features were unusually fine. Bamberg will not soon forget the charming work of the La- . Dell concert company and the Stroll- ( ers quartette. Elsworth Plumstead's impersonations and Hal Merton's magic will tend to keep us in a good humor and make us forget our troub- , les long after they are gone. Dr. ( Frizzell's "Visions and Ideals," with his clear statement of problems and assurances of power to grapple with , them, will inspire us to noble things, and Dr. Sears has shown up the grumblers, quieted the kickers, and made us all feel like less epitaphy and more taffy for this life. Bamberg is to be congratulated upon the success of the entertainment, and thanks are due the ten men who brought the festival here. Death of Mr. R. J. Hightower. Mr. Riley J. Hightower died at his home five miles from the city on Tuesday, after a long illness. Mr. Hightower was stricken with paralysis about ten months ago, and never recovered rrom tne siroKe. ne iwrmerly conducted a meat market in Bamberg, and was well known and had a large number of friends in the city. The remains were interred yesterday. Mr. Hightower is survived by his widow and five children, who have the sympathy of a large circle of friends and acquaintances.

Thielen Theatre.?adv. / LKAUl'K CONKEIiKXCK. )f the Orangeburg District Held With Trinity Methodist Church. thi scl The seventh annual conference of' tr? Orangeburg district Epworth leagues WI onvened in Trinity .Methodist church.) ar this city, on Friday evening, the six-! >tr; teenth. and continued through Sun-i day evening, in some respects this, oo conference surpassed the preceding j ci( ones. A splendid delegation?the ; be best we have ever had?attended this jnj conference, there being between thir- ni; ty and forty persons in attendance) 0'< upon its sessions. Another fact pa worthy of note was that only a few nu who were on the programme were tr< absent. A number of visitors from at Orangeburg and Charleston districts, of respectively, were present. The lie presence of a number of ministers at was appreciated and helpful to the nif young people. Th The key-word of this assembly was re: "Soul-winning." From the first session on through to the close of the wi last we were conscious of the pres- ri\ ence and power of the Holy Spirit, an We needed this power and it was felt, ch In these meetings "first things" were rightly put first, and we received a great blessing because of this. Some ??- - ? i- ?v. k.ku ~1 ?a mr [oik, woo are m me waun ui aucuu- ? ing both State ana district confer- of ences, are of the opinion that this bu gathering of young people had all* 10 through it such a sweet spirit. Cer- an tain it is that some persons have t*11 ?aught a deeper vision of things than wc we had formerly; some have conn- so to see some of the results of person - tei al work and to crave more than any- ft. thing the real ability to successfully j va engage in service for the Kingdom's j lai growth.^ .More and more we have c'c tome to see and value the importance. wa and great blessing which results from i the personal touch. Inspiration andj^6 information and encouragement and n0 sweet fellowship come to us. It is a m? joy to meet with young people who have the Lord's work in their hearts. s J* V\ 1 After special music on Friday j avening. by the young ladies of the ?Apollo .Music club, and an address of! tai welcome by Prof. Swain Merchant, Sa president of the local league chap- j ap ter, Rev. S. W. Henry, of Barn- br well, district president of the league,; tic responded. His taiK was oaseu ou on prayer. Following this, a delightful j jm eception was tendered the delegates Pe ind local leaguers at Guild's hall.1 fU; The color scheme of yellow and shi ivhite was carried out in the refresh- evi uents of cream and cake. Junior th< eaguers served the refreshments and ; wi he punch. j nic Saturday morning?and at eachj session of the conference?devotion-; 0n il services were conducted by some minister or layman present. These leg ire planned in order to prepare us j C'a spiritually for what is to follow. De- ye; lighted were we to have Rev. H. j e(j Srady Hardin, of Denmark, to pre- /Xi face this day's meetings with a talk j Th in "Soul winning?the real busi-1 ? less of the league." His remarks wi were most appropriate, most convinc-i pe ing, most lasting. The points stress-1 0f =d were "Consecration, Preparation md Service." Rev. Achille Sassard,'up if Olar, addressed his hearers on j jn< 'The devotional meeting." The need ha for connecting our lives with the'S0; higher life was made plain by the 0f illustration of a street car motor to which is connected by means of a' Su pole to the electrical current. As the. al< :ar is of no service without it ap- wj propriates the electrical power wmcn | is ready for distribution; so is the da devotional meeting of no value un-j h< les6, through prayer and consecra- fic tion, it is connected with the spirit- re; aal power at hand. 1 ed An open conference on "How*" Mi "When," "What," "Why" of the de- Tf votional meeting came next, and was entered into by a number who were en present. of Dr. Watson B. Duncan, of Orange-' di; burg, brought us a message on "The a devotional meeting, the power house da of the league." This address was! Tl good. wi Reports of officers and delegates i of came at this juncture. Some very! fr< good things were gleaned from the a reports of the latter. Dr. E. O. Watson, in Rev. W. A. Beckham's place, gave us a helpful. nn impressive talk on "The personal an touch, the touch of power." There j is a vital need for us to realize the' Mi touch of one life with another, and a greater need for us to practically Mi and not theoretically put into earn- B1 est. faithful use the spiritual power which our father supplies earth's Df children with. Mi An interesting talk on "The junior league" was made by Miss Alma Black, who is now superintendent of \ Mi the junior league of this town. More j M: and more, church people are coming to see the place of the young life in j x< the church and to encourage ana a< teach and help the child to assume his proper place and function w in the church. When children see m; that you are counting on them they will seldom fail you. Their enthusiasm is marvelous to behold. Dr. Duncan told us something worthwhile on "The Knights of Ezelah." The presence of our State secre-jCc Change in Schedules. Commencing with last Sunday ere was a slight change in the j iiedules of two of the passenger j lins here.

A party of negroes had driven Orangeburg in the automobile, d while there it was discovered at something was wrong with the >rking parts, and one of the men t under the ma'chine with a lan- ! -n to fix the part. In working on the man opened the gasoline Ive, and some of it leaked on the itern, causing it to blaze up. His >thes were caught on fire, but he is not hurt. The fire completely stroyed the automobile. The fire partment was called out. but could t prevent the complete loss of the tchine. "The Man on the Box." in 5 reels, th Max Figman, Monday. Thielen eatre.?adv. y of the Epworth league, Miss Hie Bell Watt, of Columbia, was predated. From time to time she ought us information. At this tie she brought us some thoughts "Culture and fellowship." It is portant that we supply the young ople with wholesome amusement? n, if you please. The church ould be and is, if she will embrace ery golden opportunity, equal to ? task of furnishing her young life th enjoyment of the most lasting, )St beneficial kind. Rev. C." B. Burns, of Cope, spoke "The league and missions." Saturday evening we had the privlte of hearing Dr. S. J. Summers, of meron, who has, up until this past ar, been district president. He servin this capacity for quite a while, le susa bjiestchrdlutoaihrdluuaoin e subject assigned to him was this: [ringing men to Christ?how and ly." He related one or more exriences which came in the range his observation while a physician. A number of our speakers opened their hearts and related to us stance after instance of how God d used someone to speak to their uls or of how they had been led the Spirit to lead some other soul Christ. Dr. Watson followed Dr. mmers and told us something more ing this line on "The joy of soul nning." The eleven o'clock sermon on Suny was preached by Rev. S. W. mry on the text, "My grace is sufient for Thee." That night the solutions were read and we listento a sermon on "Power" by Rev. r. Frizell, of Washington, D. C.. lis text was taken from Acts 1:8. The music throughout the confer-] ce was good; the entertainment the delegates and visitors was coral, and the interest manifested by few of the Bamberg people on Friy and Saturday was appreciated. ie delegates and others went away th kind expressions of appreciation our town and of the joy coming 5m the delightful conference, now thing of the past.

The first Sunday in May is recognized everywhere and observed generally as mothers' day, and everyone is urged to attend church that day wearing a white carnation, the mother flower. Let every nian, woman and child in Bamberg pay this tribute to mother on that Sunday. If "mother" is still with you to ble6s you go to church with her; if you are away from "mother" and cannot go to church with her, go to church, and write a letter to the?for you? greatest woman that ever lived; if "mother" has gone "home" leaving * you longing for the "touch of her I vanished hand and the sound of her n gentle voice," go to church with J thoughts of her, and resolve to live " worthy of her. Go to church every Sunday; it will do you good and it will do others good. Go to church certainly on the first Sunday in May ?mother's day. Radishes by the Million. Messrs. J. W. Hill and William Hughes this and last week shipped a large quantity of radishes to the big markets. One day last week they snipped over me a., & w. rauroaa almost a solid carload to Cincinnati. The. car was loaded with radishes entirely. except a few crates of other truck. Tuesday they shipped abont 75 crates by express over the Southern from Bamberg. Most of the radishes were sold before shipping. They were packed in ice. It is stated that this is the first time radishes nave been planted for shipping on such a large scale, but the venture , promises good results. Messrs Hill and Hughes have four acres planted in radishes this year. A Progressive School. A very pleasing and interesting programme was rendered by the pupils of Hunter's Chapel school in their new home on the evening of April 9th. "The Old Village School" was successfully staged as a play while other features of the programme were the school songs and the instrumental music furnished by the Misses \Folk and brothers, of Clear Pond, assisted by local talent. The very pretty decorations added charm to the occasion. The accomplishments of the school year are noteworthy. During this time a modern school house has been built to meet the needs of the community. A large proportion of the cost was met by private subscription, which was supplemented by State aid. The building committee deserves especial mention for its !,-* f- 'it energetic and thorough work. Manifesting their own deep interest in the work, the school children, under their enthusiastic and efficient teachers, have raised during the year a total of more than eighty dollars. This sum was raised by cotton picking, a school entertainment and pinder shelling, and has been invested in better equipment of the building and of the work. In keeping with the enthusiasm of the work, an elegant piano has been placed in the school?largely by the efforts of the young men of the community and aided by the school children and p their friends. ,Not only in a material way has ^ progress been made, but in the actual school work advancement is j noteworthy. A literary society has been organized and has held regular meeting?. A oira ciuu nus utstsu luiujcu iu> the study and protection of the birds and much interest is shown by the pupils. An additional and stronger point of contact between the school and home is formed by the system of credits toward class records, givea ^ each pupil for work done at home such as house work, and chores fcr the boys. Parents attest the increased efficiency and usefulness of the children in the home as a result of this plan. Interest of the pupils in their school work has not flagged, die cipline has been excellent, and a sue- A; cessful year's work is the result Miss Lula A.
