THURSRAY, MAY 6. 1921.
Some Baptist Figures
By request the following figures
were compiled and read in Oconee
church by the undersigned, not for the
purpose of exploiting the Baptist of
Jackson count}', but to show just how
little attention the teaching part of our
church work is receiving.
The total population of our county,
last year, was 24,654 souls. Taking
two whites for each colored person, as
has, heretofore, been about what the
census showed, we have 16,436 white
people. Of this number there are 4,-
283 who belong to the Baptist church
es. The Baptist Sunday school rolls
show that we have 2560 pupils in the
schools. The average attendance upon
these schools is 1551. Now taking into
consideration that at least one-fourth
of this enrollment are non-members —
small children and a few older persons
—we have only 1920 Baptist members
in Baptist Sunday schools. And, of
the average attendance, only 964 Bap
tist attend Baptist Sunday schools reg
Jackson county seems to be the “cor
nering place” for the Associations. Of
the above aptists, the members are di
vided among 26 churches, 18 in the Sa
repta association, 6 in the Mulberry, 1
in the Chattahoochee and 1 in the Enon.
Brethren, this is being published hop
ing that it will be an eye-opener to our
people. We have been playing Sunday
school long enough. Let’s get busy.

The Fordson plows, harrows, drills as much ground
in the same time as from four to six horses. ( Many far
mers say it does the work of eight horses.)
The Fordson does for the farmer just what machine
power does for the manufacturer-it enables him to
manufacturei ,his products at less cost. And that is
what the farmer wants to do; grow his crops more
cheaply and make his margin of profit greater. And
the Fordson will help him do it.
Let us prove this to you by a demonstration on your
own farm. Just phone us or drop us a card.
