Liberty Domocratto Clumbs.

uiounity conIvenlIti to be hal at Pickoe
zenishipj amionig thiemiselv'es.
The thoroiiglness of the work is
evidenced inl that, a. six grade pupil
sitecessftilly passed the Ciounty Board
of Examiners iln Febrimry, and wfatS
awarded a certiticate to teach. The
course of study comprises nine
grades. If the work done inl the re
maining three grades is as thorough
ats it is througig the sixth grade, and
there is abindantt reason to believe
it is, thero is no reason why this
school shouil not be the pride of the
colored people of the towni and
county. Such of them 1as have child
ren to school would do well to put
thei inl school here instead of sell(]
ing them aIviy where the cost Is
iich more an(d perhaps the training
not as thorough.
Easley is oiliig to tle front and
that at lin exceedingly rapid pac.

nation, energy ,and united efforts of

'his school was organized to satisfy
the demand for better literary ad
vantages, and to give greater oppor
tuniliies at tle least possible cost.
Ill short, we m3ay say 1hat the clief
anu, or end, of this school is to pre
pare its students for more complete
living. Supported and iphield, in
every way, by tiht citizens of the
town, as it hal1s been, it halls beel

This section is settledi miotly by
thiote whto were born and reared in
the community. One church, known
as Oriftn churoh, orgaised about
1855, and rebuilt about, the yea r j880,
is the place where these people have
their membership chiefly. The natne
wasq given It from Sargent Grifin, it
is said, who deeded teland upon
whuich the building stands. He, along
Iwith Jacob Courtney, David Hunt and
- others, were original trustees, flev,

From the time the town of liekem
was founded until the 16th day ol
May, 1891, it Wias without a iBaptisi
church. Whilo there were a fewv
Baptists in the towt during these
years they were not suiiciently
strong numerically nor financially tu
undertake such a movement.. On the
4t-h (lay of April the first step was
taken whein brethren B. Holder, J. F.
1)argan and C. E. Robinson met with
brother J. At. Stewart in his office
and held the first meeting to diseiss
the advisability of organizing a
church. After this, meetings were
held frequently and with additionai
strength, and although few in num
bers they were fully committed to
the work and determined by the help
of God to suceed.
On the 16th day of May, 1891, those
who had agreed to. take part inl tle
new organization had secured letters
of dismission from their respective
churches, and by previous arrange
ment, met iln the Presbyterinn churchd
and were dlly constitutedl and or
ganized into a Baptist church. The
council consisted of Rev. T. M1. liailey,
D. D., moderator; Rev. J. M. Stewaurt,
secretary, and Revs. W. R. Singleton,
.J. T. Lewis, Charles Man)y, 1). D.,
a.nd '1. F. Nelson. Declaration of
faith and practice and a church cove
nant. were read and adopted.
After the organization and from
timtle to time Committees were apl
pointed to secure a lot and to raise
funds for bu'ilding a house of wor
slip. Several lots were offered but
the members -werc not able to buy%
and build and by unaniiouis agree
lietit tecepeted tile lot. oifered by
Bro. J. NI. Stewart., where the build
ing niowV stands, which vas a gene
rous gift. The little band for 11ontls
striuggled and toiled and begged and
piaye(l, nild two years from ile day
of organization had seclred funds
suftlicient to buihld i holise, t louight lot
coIljlet.ed, and from then unl' til now
it has been a. struggle to complete
the building, but, today, under the
giidalice of the Holy Spirit and the
blessings of Almighty God, we see
our efforts crovned with success.
The first. pastor we lad was Bro.
L. T. Weldon. who caie to us in ,Iia n
uary, 1892, and served un1itil Decemi
ber, 1893. The first, year of the exis
tenee of tle church it was supplied
by Brethren J. K. 'Iendenhall. T. M.
Bailey, W. It. Singleton, It. llolder, .1.
M. Stewart. and J. T. Lewis.
iro. R. W. Seymour Succeeded lro.
Weldon and vas pastor for tle first
three llolIthls in 1894, when he died.
R3ev. T. .I. llooke was theen called to
the eare of the ehiurch 11d ie serv('d
uiitil )eceiber, 1895, wheni lev. J. V.
Vermillion wias called and he served
until September, 1896, after which
time the ehnreh was (ollllittedci to
the (tcare of )r. A. J. S. Thoitas, ad
hais been under his waitichful mlilsir - V
ever since. The clurel congat ulates
itself and counts itself fortunate in
baving such shi Cphierds as th ese
brethren, for under their wise and
consecrated leadership Ithe ebhur cl
hits steadily increased in ii nubers,
benevolence and spirituamnlity.
e desire to enll attention to the
work of the iadies during the trials
ad struggles encouintered (1 ri ig
t he work we had undertaken. Tlhiey
stood )' to en(Colulage lland help, andI
with their offerings did much to help
in tle great work which was dear. to
them; and l ike some good Chr istitan
ladies of old( "'labored with us in
bu ilding a house for thme Lor'd."
We wish agin to express (our3
thanks to the P'resbyterians for the
use of their house whlile we were
homeless, and to all thei brethr eni
and friends who have aided us in
building our1 house of worship.
