FOR THEn HERALD
MISS 31AGGIE AT GLENNS.
DEAR HERALD-After an absene
of three weeks we again find oui
selves within the sacred precincts o
home. 'Ve seldom seek respit
from the countless cares with whic
life work burdens us, but long wear,
weeks of anxious - watching by th
sick bed had rendered us tired, s
tired, and naturally our thought
turned to beautiful health-givin;
Glenns. So one bright Septein
ber morning we bade the old hom
good bye, and after a rapid transi
found ourselves at this waterin;
plVe pf well earned, far-famed ce]
ebrity. We reached it just as th
sunset was resting in benedictioi
on.its glorious trees and the larg
hotel situated on a beautiful -mi
nence, spread out its white wing:
in the dusky eveiiing like
dove of peace, bidding us weicom
to its hospitable portals. We wen
tired, oh, so tired, and entering th,
pleasant room awaiting us, laid
weary headton the window, watche<
the' nightfall softly gather, and th
myriad of fair lights gleam out ii
the deepening darkness. I-ow oftei
in life do we find words too smal
to express the needs of the huma1
heart, and in this instance, I fee
nlost fully their poverty and inad
equacy to describe'charming Glenn'
and its lovely surroundings
The spring with its . sparklin=
water, which has brought health anc
gladness to so many hearts; th
spring which like unto the balm o
Gilead is for the healing of mani
nations; the lovely walks, the gran<
majestic trees, made vocal with th
sweet songs of countless fores
birds; the grey suntinted hills
the delicate ferns, found deep dowi
in dark ravines, and nestled mi<
moss covered rocks, all filled ou
heart with a pleasure so intensel!
sweet as to be inexpressible. The]
when the S.abbatic stillness. tok
that the day of rest had come, thi
hallowed day of all the seven, w<
gathered in the chapel (built by thu
present proprietors) and worshippet
God in. all the beauty of holi
ness. Again in the solemn still
ness of shadowy eve, gallan
men and fair maidens gatheret
in the spacious parlors an<
sang the songs of Zion, like untu
the sweet singers of Israel, an<
methought as the rich voices rosi
and swelled, waking the echoes o
night, I wonder, ah I wonder, i
they will all meet an unbrokei
baud
Just beyond where the streets arc all golde:
Awaiting the-weary feet,
Where the ang'el's glad hallelujahs
Way-worn pilgrins greet.
Tradition. gives us the followin;
legend of Glenn Springs, whici
will be read with interest by man:
throughout our sunny land who hav,
drunk of its healing waters, an<(
lingered near the shade of'its ma
jestic oaks. -
Tradition says that in 1764, ove
a century ago, when the wild dee
and other denizens of the fores
were plentiful in the district o
Spartanburg, old hunters observeu
trails converging from all points a
the compass to a certain marsh;
cove at the base of a hill, where th
celebrated spring is now situated
To this mearsh these wild animal
were in the habit, during the spin;
and snmmer of resorting to drin]
the water that ran from it, an'
many an antlered buck lost his life
in caring for his health. The cal
tle too belonging, to the early sei
ters had the same proclivity, an,
when missing were sought and it
variably found near what was the
known as the Ponder marsh. Sul
sequently the spring was discovere
and the people began to imitate th
cattle in drinking the water, whos
curative powers they soon learne
to value, finding it efficacious i
manifold ways, and a soverign ren
edy for all -eruptive diseases. S
Glenns obtained more than loci
notoriety and for long years he
been transmitted a valuable hei:
loom from one to another until:
has reached the present gentli
manly proprietors, Messrs. Simpso
& Simpson, who by their genih
manners, high-bre~d courtesy, an
and thoughtful consideration f<
their gnests, at once combine tLi
comforts of home with the coa
veniences of a hotel. During the re
cent season more than eleven
_ hundred guests have registerd on
their book, while more than twelve
hundred have frequented the spring
for the benefit of its wonderful
water. May every successive year
bring them increasing and deserv.
ed prosperity. The grounds are
being beautifully laid out and
sown in grass, so that the grass
mats will appear as if a Musul
man had spread a carpet green,
whereon for angels feet to tread in
prayer. and the daisies and vio
lets, these jewels of the floral world,
will vie with each other to make the
spot one of peculiar lovliness. Far
adown in the evergreen glades and
forests dense, the Virginia creeper
clasps in her tenacious embrace the
rugged trees, while graceful ivy and
flowering clematis clamber in wild
profusion. Ah, an earthly Eden, a
perfect Arcadia is beautiful Glenns.
'Tis seldom in the journey of life
that you meet with so pleasant a
party as we found there. Some of
the brightest ornaments that gild
Southern society, genius, wit and
beauty, each held sway and the
hours flew by on golden wings.
f And I wonder, au 1 wonder. when
we shall meet again; ah shall we
hail in mid ocean but to steer far
apart on life's vast sea ?
For two brief weeks we lingered
in this beautiful section of country
exploring fern gemmed ravines,
climbing grey hills, gathering peb
bles from the bed of purling streams,
chestnuts from high towering trees
and wild flowers from the dew-lined
valleys.
But all too quickly the days
sped by. The last ramble was
1 taken, the last song sung, the last
words spoken to the many pleasant
friends' who had crept into our
heart of hearts, and we stood alone
by the dear old spring with its
saline waters, wondering if ever
we should stand there again, know
ing so well what a world of change
it is. But the leaves whispered
1 softly in the golden gloaming. the
brook rippled on over its rocky bed,
and a thousand voices of night
seemed to echo I wonder, al I won
der.
Then soft winds swept the zephyr'r harp
One glitterin; star Isee,
1 As nightfall wra;iled her shadows dark
Over beautiful G.lenns. and mue.

HIRAM'S VISIT.
'-Going to git married, be you,
Hiram ?"
Hiram Honeydew colored at the
abrupt question. )ut he answered.
-truthfully :
"I don't see '.'i>at else I kin do,
Aut Peggy. Si: te Susan.is bent
on a-marryin' the . chool-teacha.. an'
a-goin' off to th.e Black Hills or
som'eres away cut of all creation.
An' here's all the fall work a-comin
on-that medder hay to stack, an'
corn to cut, pumkins to gether an'
rall them windfr.lis an' Siberian
crabs to make up in cider fur the
apple-buttur, an-' no help to be got
fur love or money. An' it stands
1to reason 1 can t tend the farm and
cook the vittles. too. So I thought
soon as thrashin' was over-you've
promised to stay till then, Aunt
Peggy-an' then I thought I'd go
round son'eres nigh about Clover
SCreek, where some of our kinfolks
llive, an' stay a week or so,-an' git
--a-a-somebody - that can house
keep an' the like-do the milkin'
e an' churnin', 'tend to puttin' up
r fruit, makin' appk-butter, take keer
I of the chickens o'n' ducks, an' do
f the cookin' an' cleanin'. Sister
I Susan was a powerful good house
f keeper, an' she couldn't be beat
ra-cookin', either. If I could find a
m good sort of a wo;.an that 'ud cook
. ekal to -Susan, 1 wouldn't mind
s a-marryin' her."
;"Humuph ! So you expect to git a
i wife an' a geod one, too, in a week
i or two, hey?~ You're a gumip, Hi
, ram Honeyd aw, an' nothin' else.
- Besides, you ou:ght to git a wifei
-you could heer ur, as well as a
good housekee cper. Housekeepin'
-an' cook~in.' ain't everything, I tell
1 you. There's s chx a thing as affek
Sshin between man and wife."
i But Hiram scouted at this idea.
e "One woman is the same as
e another to me," he returned, loftily.
"I want a housekeeper, an' that's
a why I'm a-goin' to marry at all."
<-")Val then, Hiram, if you're
brumd an' determined to go an'
I hunt up a wife that a-way, mebbe I
s kin help you a little. I knowed
-the folks about Clover Creek like a
t book when yer Uncle Eli was alive,
- an' we lived on the old-Honeydew
a farm. An' thar was Mahala Nut
ter. She married Job Perky, an'
they bought a farm on Clover Hill,
r tother side the creck. There wan't
e nobody could beat Mahala a house
- w pi' hm days, an' most likely
her darter, Marthy Jane, hes tuck
after her. They are sort o' kin
folks c' 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 conp'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, he would bring her home
with him as Mrs. Honeydew in a
week's time. if she was willing.
And no doubt she wouid be, for
IIiram was quite a good.looking
man, with pleasant brown eyes,
curly brown hair, and a thick,
brown moustache.
Moreover he was "well-tc-do,"
and almost any of the girls in his
own neighborhood would have
jumped at the chance of presiding
over 'is broad acres and pictures
que cottage farm-house, half buried
in sugar-maples and tall Lollard
poplar-trees.
But to Hiram, as to most others,
distance lent enchantment to the
view, and he was "bound 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-up 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 assenteil 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'ji.
a-lookin' 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, an' 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' minmd
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 had been turned for
pasturage after the meadow hay was
cut.
"Oh, 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,
and goodness knows what else,
and-Oh !"
She started back, with a little
scream, for seated on the fence.
under the shadow of a crimson
leaf:ed sassifras-tree, sait 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 heart beat faster than corn
mon.
But Hty 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 ' ome, lazily
chewing their euds. a-.d switching
their tils1 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 may 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 goot as her.
I-don't-know-"
le ended by building a castle in
t'e 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 f
looking harder than ever, and her 2
sharp features seemed sharper still
as she bounced wrathfully into the t
kitchen where Hitty sat slicing a T
bowl of yellow Crawford peaches
for supper.
"You kin pack up you duds and i
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 Honeydew-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!"
"But I don't know where to
go!"
Iitty'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 !" said Hiram
Honeydew stepped - suddenly into t
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't 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 cold 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 off again.
"An' so you didn't marry Ma
hala's darter, after all !" cried
Aunt Peggy, who was waitinig to 4
receive them.3
-'No-no !" stammered Hiram. Hit
ty kin learn to keep house, -I1
reckin-"
"Learn?" cried Hitty. "Why, I
did all the .,housekeeping at Auntf
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 PnoyxsIoNs.-Every
man has his favorite story, and the<
Hon. Roswell P. Flower, of Newi
York, tells the following :
"One day an old negro, clad in t
rags, and carrying a burden on his
head, ambled into' the executiveJ
chamber, and dropped his load on t
the floor. Stepping toward the gov
ernor, he said:
"Em you de gubner, sah?"
Being answered in the affirmative, I
he said :
"If dat am a fac' I'se glad tert
meet yer. Yer see I libs way upi
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 hiar to
get some ob emsa.
"MIave you heard any bad news?"
asked a minister's wife of her hus
band, as he entered the 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 next1
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?"
"Shoeln' snow, mum."

Lssisted in the dedication also-by

ng 30 received by him during the
'ear.
The communion was the largest
ver witnessed at St. Luke's, about
00 surrounding the Lord's table.

lition of the congregation ;
SKETC1 OQ ST, LUKE'S CHURCH.
In the year 1827, three years af
er the organization of the S: C.
iynod. Rev. J. D. Scheck was ap
ointed a missionary and ordered
9 visit vacant congregations and
rganize new ones. In June of
hat year he visited the neighbor.
ood of the Bedenbaughs And Boo
ers and was so, much encouraged
hat he organizeq a congregation
q a log church, built as a union
ouse of worship about a mile
;outheast of where St. Luke's now
tands. After the. organization of
he church, Rev. John G. Schwartz
ras called as pastor of the new
ociety, and in 1828 the first St.
.uke's was built on the spot where
he graveyard now stands. The
ouse soon proved to be too small
or the growing congregation, and
t was enlarged by the addition of
rings on the sides. The rapid in
rease of the congregation soon de
nanded a still larger house, and on
lertthe ncey
V. Berley, that portion of the con
regation residing in the North
astern end of the charge purchased
he church and removed- it into
heir midst, and were organized into
separate congregation called Col
>ny church, which has grown into a
trong congregation.
The members of St. Luke's in
he meantime erected a large and
ommodious house of worship which
ias stood till the present. - It hat
een remodeled and beautified, and
s this day rededicated to the scr
ice of that God whose mercy and
oodness we, with grateful hearts,
cknowledge.
The church has been served by
.4 pastors, viz,, Revs. J. D. Scheck,
r. G. Schwartz, J. Moser, .G. W.
-larter, Herman Aull, W. Berly,
r. C. H-ope, J. B. Anthony, J. P.
dlargart, T. S. Boinest, J. A. Sligh,
r. L. Smithdeal, J. Hawkins, H. S.
~Vingard, and J, D. Bowles.
-Four. of the pasters were twice
:alled to serve the chufrch, viz., J.
dfoser, W. Berley, T. S. Boinest
and J. Hawkiins, who is the present
>astor.
Since the organization St. Luke's
ias furnished,. twelve of her sons
or the gospel ministry, viz., Elijah
simore. Elijah Hawkins, P. W.
iawkins, S. R. Sheppard, Levi.
3edenbaugh, S.,W. Bedenbaugh, J.
lawkins, J. D. Boozer, C. P. Boo
er, Z. W.: Bedenbaugh, L. P. Haw
:ins and Benjamin Boozer. J. D.
~oozer labored in the ministry but
short time, and then turned his
~ttention to the practice of medi
ine. Benjamin Boozer was reared
n St. Luke's church, but feeling
imself called- to the gospel minis
ry, and despairing of all hope of
ecuring the proper training in the
lutheran church, he nited with
he Methodist church and labored
rith success in the ministry until
ast year, when he was called to
'est, respected and lamented by his
>rethren.
Of the others, six have gone to
heir reward. Elijah Elmore died
n Georgia. Elijalt Hawkins in Vir
~inia, P. W. Hawkins in -West
['ennessee, L. Bedenbaugh in Geor
ia, S. R. Sheppard in Mississippi,
Lnd S. W. Bedenbaugh in Florida.
-While St. Luke's has thus given
ier sons to the church, pad her
nembers have scattered themselves
uto various parts of our c6untry,
Lud her own graveyards have grad
ially filled with her departed, she
s strcnger and more vigorous to
laLy than at any former period of
erei bistory. In blessing others she
ias blessed herself. And to.day
ye join in this feast of dedication,
with a membership of over 300,
ith possibilities of future useful
iess that can scarcely be estimated.
Uet us then, while we rededicate
>ur beautiful temple to the worship
>f Almighty God, reconsecrste our
ielves to His service, that we may,
ndeed, enjoy not only this occa
non, but the 'continued smiles of
