) M. Duncan, the presiding elder

b sionary to the mountain section
, of Pickens county. He reached
3 PickOns last Friday and entered
immediately upon his work.
This matter of supplying a
Methodist preacher, working in
connection with the pastors of
Pickens and Norh Pickens cir
cuits, and thus giving weak
churches better service and sup
t plying unoccupied sections with
t pastoral service, was taken up
by the last district conference
a few weeks ago, and the work
will be supported by the "Lay
t man's Missionary Movement"
r of the district. As Mr. Stabler
f -cQes endorsed by the faculty of
a Wofford College and the presid
3 ing elder of the district, we trust
he may find easy access to the
homes of these good people, and
we shall expect to hear of good
. results from his work.
