The Newberry College has had a
very prosperous session so far this year.
The enrollment and average attend
ance has been larger than for many
At the last session of the South Caro
lina Lutheran Syno'd, action was taken
looking to the putting of a financial
agent in the field. Rev. J. A. Sligh
was elected as such agent. The object
was to increase the endowment an1 to
raise money ($5,0'0) to build two
houses on the college campus for the
professors. Mr. Sligh declined the
agency. Some time ago President
Holland addressed a circular letter to
the churches in the State with a view
to raising money for these houses with
out the agent.
The Cbarles:ou Conference, or the
Lutherans in Charleston, have p'edged
the money for one of these houses, and
we suppose it will be built at an early
There is little doubt that money for
the erection of the other house will be
forthcoming. The Newberry College
does not make much noise about itswork
but in a quiet way is doing a grand
work for the education or the young
men of the State.
We feel a deep interest in this insti
tution and are glad to note this evi
dence of appreciation on the rart of
the Lutheran church in its work.
A Good Cause.
The Ladies Society of the Presb,yterian
church, has arranged for a series of
entertainments, to assist in raising
imoney for church purposes.
These entertainments will consist of
vocal and instrumental music, readings,
It is intended also to make these oc
casions social re-unions, and therefore
the regular programme will be of such
a length as will allow ample time for
conversation and social intercourse
among those who attend.
The first of the series of entertain
ments will take place at the residence
of Mrs. Fannie Baxter, on Friday, Jan
uary 31st. at 7: 30 p. In. Admission

cordially invited to attend.
Those who have hacking coughs, or
colds, or croup, etc., can secure quick
relief and speedy recovery by using
Pelham's Pectoral Syrup. This famous
medicine costs only 25c. a bottle, but is
worth its weight in gold. It has not
been tried for the Grip or Influenza,

Golden Wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob
On the 1(th inst., Mr. Jacob Wicker
arid wife, Elizabeth, of Newberry
County, S. C., celebrated the 50th anni
versary of their marriage. The com
pany present was composed of children
and grand-children, with other rela
tives, and the near neighbors. The
living children, six; grand-children
nineteen, all present. Three children,
and three grand-children dead. For
the accommodation of all present a
sumptuous dinner was spread on a long
table in the yard. At the hour of 12,
just before the announcement for dini
ner, the guests all assembled in the
house and gave us the beautiful song.
"Nearer my God to Thee," with Mrs.
Rutherfordi, the untiring organist, at
the organ. A fter the singing. Rev. W.
A. Julian, their p)astor-, with tne aged
couple seated together pronounced the
Beloved friends, aged husband and
wife, father and mother in the Lord.
As your pastor, it affords me great
pleasure to address you on this fes
tive occasion, at a period however tbe
solemnity of which is second to none
save that which brought you together
as husband and wife in the days of your
youth. A repetition of that joyful
occasion in ri per years serves thbe pres
ent as prima facie evidence of an undis
turbed union for a half century. Fifty
years have elapsed since you made the
marriage vow. In all of these years this
vow has been a remiinder of your duty
to each other. In consummation of your
matrimonial engagement, the home of
your birth, with father and mother,
wvere forsaken in a measure. When your
lots were cast with strangers. It was a
venture. It was a leap in the dark, but
the wheel of fortune has cast the die in
your favor, and the union to each one
of you has been a sweet and happy
communion. The introduction of your
matrimonial life wvas the launching of
your little mate b,oat upon time's great
ocean. Since that day, you have had
high sea, and low sea. rough andl smooth
sailing, sunshine and clouds, storm and
calmn, wet and dry, cold and heat.
Your little boat is now well nigh the
shore, a few miore days of faithful row
ing and the voyage will end. You may
anchor at the diamronid shore, but you
cannot tarry long, you must hurry on
to meet the grand assize,-to attend the
marriage supper of the Lamh. Not the
goldlen period alone, lit emblem of pure
character and life, but an occasion
when each and every guest will be
furnished with a pure spotless wedding
garment, washed in the blood of the
Lamb, made white as snowv. Not rings
andl pins, but crowns of thie purest gold
will then and there be given thee.
With diamonds bright, and gems of
the richest hue will grace thy brow.
Let me reinud you (one time more of
that solemn marriage vow. Did you
not p'romiise to live together after God's
ordinance in the holy state of miatri
mony, to love, comfort, and honoreach
other, to keep you each the other only
unto death; then hand in hand, you
were joined together as husband and
wife, dismissedn to the world with but
little of this world's goods to begini your
marriage life, but with character pure
as gold, you have lived to bring up
obedienit children who honor you in
declining years. And now may your
last days be the brightest and the most
peaceful days of all your life. May the
God of all grace perpetuate the happy
union aind preserve you in the true
faith unto eternal life, amen.
