FOR 'in HERALD
MISS MAG*-'IEAT GLENNS. t
DEAR HER ALD-After s.a absence
of three weeks we again find our- I
selves within the sacred precincts of. I
home. ,We seldom seek respite
from the countless cares with which
life work burdens us, but long weary
weeks of anxious - watching by the .
sick bed had rendered us tired, so j
tired, and naturally our thoughts e
turned to beautiful health-giving C
Glenns. So one bright Septem
ber morning we bade the old home C
good bye, and after a rapid transit
found ourselves at this watering
pl4pe of well earned, far-famed cel
ebrity. We reached it just as the
sunset- was resting in benediction t
on its glorious trees and the large
hotel situated on a beautiful cmi- f
nence, spread out its white wings
in the dusky evening like a
dove of peace, bidding us welcome s
to its hospitable portals. We were
tired, ph, so tired, and entering the 1
pleasant- room awaiting us, laid a 1
weary headon the window, watched s
the' nightfall softly gather, and the
myriad of fair lights gleam out in
the deepening darkness. How often s
in life do we find words too sinall (
to express the needs of the human
heart, and in this .instance, I feel a
most fully their poverty and inad
equacy to describecharming Glenn's
and its lovely surroundings.
The -spring with its sparkling
water, which has.brought health and t
gladness to so many hearts; the
spring which like unto the balm of
Gilead is for the healing of many
nations; the lovely walks, the grand
majestic trees, made vocal with the P
sweet songs of countless forest
birds; the grey suntinted hills,
the delicate ferns, found deep down
in dark ravines, and nestled mid
moss covered rocks, all filled our
heart with a pleasure so intensely
sweet as to be inexpressible. Then
when the Sabbatic stillness- told
that the day of rest had comae, the
allowed day of all the seven~, we
gathered in the. chapel (built by the
present proprietors) and worshipped
God in. all the beauty of holit
ness. Again in the solemn still
ness of shadowy eve, gallant
men and fair maidens gathered C
in the spacious -parlors and ~
sang the songs of Zion, like unto ~
the sweet singers of Israel, and
methought as the rich voices rose C
and swelled, waking the echoes of C
night. I wonder, ah I wonder, if
they will all meet an unbrokenC
band
Just beyond where the streets arc all golden
Awaiting the-weary feet,
Where the angcel's glad hallelujahs (2
Wayworn pilgrims greet.
Tradition gives us the following r
legend of Glenn Springs, which I
will be read with interest by many r
throughout our sunny land who have (
drunk of its healing waters, and 1
lingered near the shade of its ma- -i
jestic oaks. I
Tradition says that in 1764, ove'r e
a century ago," when 'the wild deer f
and1 other denizens of the forest c
were plentiful in the district of t
Spartanburg, old hunters observed f
trails converging from all points of I
the compass to a certain marshy
cove at the base of a hill, where the g
celebrated spring is no0W situated.
To this marsh these wild animals
were in the habit, during the spri.ig
and summer of resorting to drink
the water that ran from it, and<
many an antlered buck lost his life,
in caring for his health. The cat-]
tle too belonging, to the early set
ters had the same proclivity, and
when missing were sought and in
variably found near what was then
known as the Ponder marsh. Sub
sequently the spring was discovered
and the people began to imitate the
cattle in drinking the water, whose
curative powers they soon learned
to value, finding it efficacious in
manifold ways, and a soverign rem
edy for all -eruptive diseases. So 1
Glenns obtained more than localJ
notoriety and for long years has
been transmitted a valuable heir- 1
loom from one to another until it
has reached the present gentle
manly proprietors, Messrs. Simpson
& Simpson, who by their genial
manners, high-bred courtesy, and
and thoughtful consideration for
their gnests, at once combine the
morts of home with the eon
eniences of a hotel. During the re
ent season more than eleven
undred guests have registerd on
heir book, while more than twelve
undred have frequented the spring
:r the benefit of its wonderful
rater. May every successive year
ring them increasing and deserv
d prosperity. The grounds are
eing beautifully laid out and
own in grass, so that the grass
iats will appear as if a Musul
ian had spread a carpet green,
rhereon for angels feet to tread in
rayer, and the daisies and vio
:ts, these jewels of the floral world,
rill vie with each other to make the
pot one of peculiar lovliness. Far
down in the evergreen glades and
:rests dense, the Virginia creeper
asps in her tenacious embrace the
ggged trees, while graceful ivy and
owering clematis clamber in wild
rofusion. Ah, an earthly Eden, a
erfect Arcadia is beautiful Glenns.
'is seldom in the journey of life
bat you meet with so pleasant a
arty as we found there. Some of
e brightest ornaments that gild
outhern society, genius, wit and
eauty, each held sway and the
ours flew by on golden wings.
Lnd I wonder, a 1 wonder, when
re shall meet again; ah shall we
ail in mid ocean but to steer far
part on life's vast sea ?
For two brief weeks we lingered
i this beautiful section of country
ploring fern gemmed ravines,
limbing grey hills, gathering peb
les from the bed of purling streams,
hestnuts from high towering trees
nd wild flowers from the dew-lined
alleys.
But all too quickly the days
ped by. The last ramble was
aken, the last song sung. the last
ro;ds spoken to the many pleasant
riends who had crept into our
eart of hearts, and we stood alone
y the dear old spring with its
aline waters, wondering if ever
re should stand there again, know
2g so well what a world of change
is. But the leaves whispered
ftly in the golden gloaming. the
rook rippled on over its rocky bed,
nd a thousand voices of night
eemed to echo I wonder, ah I won
er.
Then soft win,ls swept the zephyr': harp
One glitterin.; star I see,
s nightfall wra;ped her shadows dark
Over beautiful Glenns. and me.

HIRM'S VISIT.
-0
'-Going to git married, be you,
iram ?"
Hiram Honeydew colored at the
brupt question, but he answered.
~uthfully :
"I don't see .. 'at else I kin do,
unt Peggy. Si: ter Susan-is bent
n a-marryin' the .chool-teachcr an'
-gon' off to the Black Hills or
m' eres away out of all creation.
L' here's all the fall work a-comin'
n-that medder hay to stack, an'
orn to cut, pumkins to gether an'
11 them windfr.ils an' Siberian
rabs to make up in cider fur the
pplebuttur, an-' no help to be got
ar love or money. An' it stands
reason 1 can't t-md the farm and
ook the vittles, too. So I thought
oon as thrashin1 was over-you've
romised to stay till then, Aunt
eggy-an' then I thought I'd go
ond som'eres nigh about Clover
~reek, where some of our kinfolks
ve, an' stay a week or so, an' git
a-somebody - that can house
:eep an' the like-do the milkin'
n' churnin', 'tend to puttin' up
ruit, makin' appk-butter, take keer
f the chickens an' duc~ks, an' do
he cookin' an' cleanin'. Sister
usan was a powerful good house
:eeper, an' she couldn't be beat
.-cookin', either. If I could find a
;ood sort of a woiman that 'ud cook
kal to' Susan, i wouldn't mind
.-marryn' her."
"Humphi! So you expect to git a
fe an' a gcod one, too, in a week
ir two, hey?' You're a gump, Hi.
am Honeyd ew, an' nothin' else.
esides, you ought to git a wife
rou could h eer fur, as well as a
;ood housekeceper. Housekeepin'
m' coolgin' ain't everything, I tell
rou. There's sech a thing as affeck
;hin between man and wife."
But Hiram scouted at this idea.
"One woman is the same as
mother to me," he' returned, loftily.
'I want a housekeeper, an' that's
yhy I'm a-goin' to marry at all."
"Val then, Hiram, if you're
ound an' determined to go an'
mint up a wife thv1t a-way, mebbelI
rn help you a little. I knowed
,he folks about Clover Creek like a
>ook when yer Uncle Eli was alive,
m' we lived on the old'-Honeydeni
Tar. An' thar was Mahala Nut
er. She married Job Perky, an
hey bought a farm on Clover Hill,
'other side the creek. There wan't
iobody could beat Mahala a house
meepn' them days, an' most likelv
her darter, Marthy Jane, hes tuck
after her. They are sort o' kin
folks o' yourn, too. Mahaly was
yer Uncle Eli's own cousin. An'
ef you like, I'll write 'em a few
lines, an' tell 'em you're a-comin'
an' sort o' perpare 'em, fur nobody
likes to hey comp'ny onexpected."
And so it was settled, much to
Hiram's .relief, and he whetted his
scythe and went out to mow a feed
of green clover for his horses with
a lighter heart than he had had for
a week.
For he had made up his mind
that if Martha Jane Perky was as
good a housekeeper as Aunt Peggy
said, lie would bring her home
with him as Mrs. Honeydew in a
week's time. if she was willing.
And no doubt she would be, for
Hiram was quite a goodlooking
man, with pleasant brown eyes,
curly brown hair, and a thick,
brown moustache.
Moreover he was "well-to-do,"
and almost any of the girls in his
own neighborhood would have
jumped at the chauce of presiding
over is broad acres a4d pictures
que cottage farm-house, half buried
in sugar-maples and tall Lollard
poplar-trees.
But to Hiram, as to most otfiers,
distance lent enchantment to the
view, and he was "hound and de
.termined," as Aunt Peggy had said,
to seek his fate in some of the wide
old farm-houses dotting the fertile
borders of Clover Creek.
"He'll be a mighty good ketch
fur you an' no'mistake, Marthy
Jane," commented Mrs. Perky,
when Aunt Peggy's letter had been
duly received and read. "A mighty
good ketch an' you must do your
best to ketch him. 'Tain't often a
gal has sech a chance throwed at
her head, and if you have .got a
mite o' pluck about you, you won't
let them stuck-np Briggses git
ahead of you. Delilah Briggs
would give her-ears to git ahead of
you, I'll bet a button !"
To which bit of logic Martha
Jane assente<l, with a toss of her
head, and the assurance that Delilah
Briggs, nor no one else, wasn't a
goin' to git ahead of her.
Consequently; when farmer Per
ky drove his'gray team to the gate,
with Hiram Honeydew on the seat
beside him, the necessary prepara
tions had already been made
floors scoured, baking done, and
a substantial country dinner, with a
dessert of apple-dumplings and
sweet-cream sauce, ready to be
served.
While Martha Jane, in a pink
plaid frock, with fluted- ruffles,
stood waiting to welcome the ex
pected guest.
"She's mortal humly," thought
Hiram, as he sat smoking, -after
dinner, on the porch, and- mentally
reviewing Martha Jane's narrow
forehead, hard black eyes and high
colored cheeks. "But, then, I ain't
adlookin' out fur beauty, an' if she
suits me other ways, I reckin 'taint't
no great matter how she looks. A girl
with them kind of eyes an' a mahog
any colored skin kin do the chores
an make butter, tan' sech, as good
as if she had blue eyes an' goldf
lookin' hair, like that girl they call
Hitty, that brought in the dumplin's
an' passed round the dip fur 'em
at 'dinner to-day. She's the hired
girl, I reckin. 'T any rate I ain't
got time to hunt round much, an''I
reckin Marthy Jane won' mind
changin' her name to Honeydew
afore long, an' I've got to hurry
up I ain't got no time to waste
a-courtin'. I reckin if nothin' hap
pens we kin be married in a week,
an' git back home. I don't like to
stay here a-settin' round doin' noth
in', with all the fall work a-gittin'
behind at the farm."
"Oh, dear?"
Down through the long grass
and crimson, clover-beds, under
scrubby haws and tall persimmon
trees, went Hitty Mavis, a deep
caped sunbonnet shading her violet
eyes and tangled yellow curls.
She was after t.he cows standing
knee-deep in the tall aftermath,
where they hed been turned for
pasturage after the meadow hay was
cut.
"Ohi, dear !" sighed Hitty again,
"I'm so tired. and here's the cows
to drive home, milking to do, sponge
to set for the baking to-morrow,
ahd goodness knows what else,
and-Oh !"
She started back, with a little
scream, for seated on the fence.
under the shaddw of a crimson
leafed sassi.fras-tree, sat Hiram
Honydew, cooly watching her.
Hitty's cheeks -turned from pink
to scarlet as- she met the admiring
glances of his frank, brown eyes,
and her fBeart beat faster than com
mon.
But Hitty was a sensible girl, so
she said, "Good evening, Mr.
Honeydew !" quite coolly, and be
gan driving home the cows.
So they walked together through
the velvety aftermath, -dotted with
scarlet butterfly-weed, and crimson
petaled "nigger-heads," the lowing
cows filing slowly home, lazily
chewing their cuds, and switching
their tails at the flies.
Hiram let down the bars, and
turned the cows into the yard,
while Hitty brought out the milk
pails from under a bunch of burdock
leaves, where she had left them.
And somehow, in spite of the
milking and setting the sponge,
and doing up the chores, Hitty's.
heart beat more lightly than it had
for ray a day.
And instead' of one week Hiram
Honeydew stayed two, but still
Martha Jane had not been invited
to change her name.
"She's a mighty good house
keeper," thought Hiram, medita
tively. "If little Hitty could only
cook an' housekeep as good as her.
I-don't-know- "
lie ended by building a castle in
the air, wherein Hitty Mavis, with
her violet eyes, and "goldy" col
ored hair, was the chief figure.
"Hitty Mavis !"
Martha Jane's hard; black eyes
looking harder than ever, and her
sharp features seemed sharper still
as she bounced wrathfully into the
kitchen where Hitty sat slicing a
bowl of yellow Crawford peaches
f'or supper.
"You kin pack up you duds and
go ! You a-settin' up to ketch a
beau, as if Hiram Honeydew would
look at you."
"I-Martha Jane, what on earth
do you mean?"
Hitty's eyes expanded, and the
pink in her -cheeks deepened to a
glowing scarlet.
"You know well enough what I
mean !" sneered Martha. "You
needn't to look so innercent, like
butter wouldn't melt in your mouth,
an' you a-strainin' every nerve to
ketch Hiram Hon'eydew-a-cajolin'
him. to help you milk, an' drive up
the cows, an' the like. It's jest
like your owdacious doin's, an' you
kin pack up an' leave-right away,
too!"
">,at T don't know where to
go!"
Hitty's heart beat like a fright
ened robin's at the thought of be
ing driven friendless into the
world, but Martha Jane was im
placable.
"It's nothin' to me where you
go, so you leave here," she-sniffed,
as she flounced angrily away.
"Go with me, Hitty I" said Hiram
Honeydew stcpped - suddenly into
the little kitchen. "Go with me,
Hitty, and be my wife."
Hitty's cheeks grew redder than
before, but she did not draw away
from his offered embrace.
"Not gone yet?,' cried a shrill
voice, as the door was jerked vic:
iously open. "Didn" I tell you to
pack up-.Oh, Mr. Hopeydew, you
here? Come and have tea-we're
a-waitin' fur you."
"Excuse me !" was the celd re
ply. "I shall just have time to
take my wite-that is to be-over
to the parsonage. Will you come
to the wedding?"
But, with a scornful sniff and
toss of her head, Martha Jane
flounced of|f again.
"An' so you didn't marry Mg
hala's darter, after all !" cried
Aunt Peggy, who was waitinig to
receive them.
"No-no !" stammered Hiram. Hit
ty kin learn to keep house, -I
reckin-"
"Learn?" cried Hitty. "Why, I
did all the housekeeping at Aunt
Mahala's. She is my aunt, though
they wouldn't let me call her so.
Marthy Jane never did a lick of
work in her life."
And so Hiram Honeydew got a
wife and a housekeeper all in one,
after all.
COLORED PROYISIONs.-Every
man has his favorite story, and the
Hon. Roswell P. Flower, of New
York, tells the following:
"One day an old negro, clad in
rags, and carrying a burden on his
head, ambled into' the executive
ch..mber, and dropped his load on
the floor. Stepping toward the gov
ernor, he said:
"Em you de gubner, sah?"
Being answered in the affirmative,
he said :
"If d at am a fac' I'se glad ter
meet yar. Yer see I libs way up
dar in de back ob de country, and
is a poor man, sah. I h'ar .dar is
some pervishuns in de cons'tution
fer de culled man, and I am bar to
get some ob em sah."
"H ave you heard any bad news?"
asked a minister's wife of her hus
band, as lie entered thie house, look
ing a little despondent. "Yes," the
good man replied, "I have; the
marriage of young Smith and the
Begley girl is put off until next
year."
A Kansas woman was upbraiding
her husband when a cyclone hove
in sight, and, with a sigh of relief,
the unhappy man ran out into its
path and was safely blown into the
next county.
"Dear lady, please help an unfor
tunate man. I ain't had no work
at my trade since last winter.'
"Poor man ! What is your trade?"
"Sovelln' snow, nm."
iu itous.
HIGH DAY AT ST. LUKE'S.
Sunday, Oct. 14th, was a high
day at St. Luke's in Newberry
county, S. C. The beautiful church
was solemnly dedicated to the ser
vice of the triune God, Father, Son
and Holy Ghost in the presence of,
perhaps, 500 persons. The dedica
tion sermon was preached by Rev.
J. A. Sligh, and the pastor was
assisted in the dedication also-by
Prof. H. Dysingcr, who preadhed
in the afternoon. The two sermons
by Rev. Sligh and that by Profes
sor Dysinger .were excellent and
gave general satisfaction.
Ten . members were received into
full fellowshi'p by the pastor,- mak
ing 30 received by him during the
year.
The communion was the largest
ever witnessed at St. Luke's, about
300 surrounding the Lord's table.
There was general rejoicing, and
the feast of dedication was kept
with glad hearts.
The pastor read the following
paper which shows in brief the con
dition of the congregation;
SKETCHi Q ST. LUKE'S CHURCH.

ter the organization of the S. C.
Synod, Rev. J. D. Scheck was ap
pointed a missionary and ordered
te visit vacant congregations and
organize new ones. In June of
that year he visited the neighbor
hood of the Bedenbaughe and Boo
zers and was s" much encouraged
that he organizet a congregation
in a log church, built as a union
house of worship about a mile
Sontheast of where St. Luke's now
stands. After the. trganization of
the chnrch, Rev. John G. Schwartz
was called as pastor of the new
society, and in 1828 the first St.
Luke's .was built on the spot where
the graveyard now stand. The
house soon. proved to be too small
for the growing congregation, and
it was enlarged by the addition of
wings on the sides. The rapid in
crease of the congregation soon de
manded a still larger house, and .n
W. Berley, that portion of-he eon
gregation residing in the North
eastern end of the charge purchased
the churchE and - zemoved it int6
their midst, and were organized into
a separate congregation called Col
ony church, which has grown into a
strong congregation.
The members of St. Luke's in
the meantime erected a large and
commodious house of worship which
has stood ,till the present. ' It has
been remodeled and. beautified, and
is this day rededicated to the scr
vice of that God whose mercy and
goodness we, with grateful hearts,
acknowledge.
The church has been served by
14 pastors, viz,, Revs. J. D. Scheck,
J. G. Schwartz, J. Moser, G. W.
Harter, Herman Aull, W.~ Berly,
J. C. Hope, J. B. Anthony, J- P.
Margart, T. S. Boinest, J. A. Sligh,
J. L. Smithdeal, J. Hawkins, H. S.
Wingard, and J, D. Bowles. -
-Four of the pasters were twie
called to serve the chutrch, viL, J.
Moser, W, Berley, T. S. Boinest
and J. Hawklins, who is the present
pastor.
Since the organization St. Luke's
has furnished,4 twelve of her sons
for the gospel ministry, viz., Elijah
Elmore. Elijah Hawkins, P. W.
Hawkins, S. R. Sheppard, Levi.
Bedenbaugh, S.-W. Bedenbaugh, J.
Hawkijis, J. D. Boozer, C. P. Boo
zer, Z. W. Bedenbaugh, L. P. Haw
kins and Benjamin Boozer. J. D.
Boozer labored in the ministry bat
a short time, and then turned his
attention to the ptactice of medi
cine. Benjamin Boozer was reared
in St. Luke's church, but feeling
himself called. to the gospel minis
try, and despairing of all hope of
securing the proper training in the
Lutheran church,- he united with
the Methodist church and labored
with success in the ministry until
last year, when he was called to
rest, respected and lamented by his
brethren.
Of the- others, six have gone to
their reward. Elijah Elmore died
in Georgia, Elijalb Hawkins in Vir
ginia, P. W. Hawkins in -West
Tennessee, L. Bedanbaugh in Geor
gia, S. R. Sheppard in Mississipipi,
and S. W. Bedenbaugh in Florida.
- While St. L'uke's has thus given
her sons to the church, pnd her
members have scattered themselves
into various parts of our country,
and her own graveyards have grad
ually filled with her departed, she
is strcnger and more vigorous to
day than at any former period of
her history. In blessing others she
has blessed herself. And to.day
Iwe join in this feast of dedication,
with a membership of over 300,
with possibilities of fiture useful
ness- that can scarcely be estimated.
Let us then, while we rededicate
our beautiful temple to the worship
of Alnighty God, reconsecrate our
selves to His service, that we may,
indeed, enjoy not only this oca
sion, but the 'continued smiles of
our kind heavenly Father,.and be a
still greater blessing to the world.
