The Vrcdenburgli Mooting Closes- A New
Industry Eighty-two Cases of La Grippe.
Sr.xi < A, s. C.. April 11.-Sunday night
closed a two weeks' series of meetings
conducted at tho Presbyterian church hy
Mr. d.s. Vrodonburgh, of Springfield,
111. As Hov. Mr. Handler said, the
denominations wore a unit during
i he meetings, working harmoniously
throughout, Sunday's services at tho
Methodist and baptist churches were
called in. their pastors and congregations
worshiping nt the Presbyterian church.
H it is possible to discriminate, Mr.
Vrcdciihlll'gh's Sunday morning sermon
was perhaps the most beautiful ol' the
seiies. Ile chose as his context, as he
was pleased to term it, that favorite
Psalm, the twe y-third. Added to his
ever ready llow f language, there was a
magnetic oloq u nce, ami tho discourse
teemed with ii lapherie allusions.
At night the church was crowded, and
it wa* with diOiculty that all who came
were seated, 'the sorvico was impres
sive; much regtet was felt that, with it,
the meeting must ?dose. Considerable
ii.Iciest was manifested, and many who
had never bcforo made any religious pro
fessions confessed Christ. lt was de
cided thal a jubileo service should tie
held Monday night.
Monday night came, and with it an
eager assemblage at the church, There
wore songs and prayers, Pasnlm reading
and talks. Appropriate talks were made
by Kev. I). \V, tlioU, pastor of tho bap
tist church; Kev. c. I?, Clarkson, of the
Methodist church : Kev. \V. S. Untidier,
of the Presbyterian church; Hov. C.
Waidlaw. ami a number of laymen.
Then Mr. Vrodenburgb went into tho
pulpit and delivered Iiis '1 lilli message.
Ile urged his hearers to he bible Chris
tians, leaving willi them a couplet:
"Have a time and a place to pray,
And read the Hilde every day."
The glorious things of the Hilde were
mentioned, and. said the speaker. "I
pity the man or woman who has never
had a vision: not a vision outside Cod's
word, hut one found between thc lids of
this ldessed hook." Thc vision for thc
sinner ls Christ and Nicodemus, .lohn iii:
the vision for the saint is Stephen lilied
with the Holy (?host, Acts vii:.V?. Mr.
Vredellbill'gh's nest point was thal
temptation should ho avoided, and this
w as emphatically urged. Then rang the
words of tho speaker, "Do something."
Ile thought it no wonder that many
Christians complain of hoing chilly, lt
is due lo inac tivity, and Christian SCI
\ leo w mild w II rm I hem up.
His talk ended, he stepped from thc
pulpit, asked the pastors of the town to
stand beside him. and the whole congre
gation was requested lo walk up and
shake hands with the four (.odly men.
Thus ended I he service.
Mr. Vrcdenburgli has made a wonder
ful impression for good upon thc people.
His afternoon services were particularly
inst rmi i vc. Their primary object was
to teach, and this obj cc I was success
I'll 11,1 accomplished. If those who hoard
him failed to learn more ol' the Hilde or
ti. mark their Hildes on reaching home,
(if they did Hot have them at the
chm eh), theirs, ami liol his. is t he I da mc.

Hartley, Sr., who patronized the Oreen

"Tho most important point in the bound

vil nco ill the price above that ol' the

Mr. F. M, bogers also wrote from

Koundlap hale is a Codseml to the farm

Mr. J. I). Keily, Centreville, Miss.,

vantage to the farmers is that Koundlap
cotton brings such a good price thal the
buyers of square cotton have been forced
to put their price up. 'fhus all the

Mr. P. 1!. Hall, a merchant and planter
