Previous to 178 1 the Chinese had

Many writers have stated that tho

ULVER JUBILEE IN HIS HONOR.

Tlie following extra?is from an nc

V. . (?wynn, of Greenville, will bo
ead with interest by many in Oco
lee, for rather Gwynn bas labored
n our section lu the past and ls re
jected und admired by all who have
lecome intimately acquainted with
lim. We quote from a lengthy arti
lle regarding the silver Jubileo:
"The'silver Jubilee of Kev. Father
^. K. (?wynn, pastor of St. Mary's
'.burch, was concluded with a de
Igbtful reception and entertainment
ast night at St. Mary's hall. In ad?
litlon to the visiting clergy and the

1 quarter of a conlury of service,

ichleveniont. In his speech, express
ng gratitude for the celebration,
[."atlier Gwynn said that, Just before
tho exercises began, tho pastor of tho
largest non-Catholic church In Green
ville had called upon him and offered
lils felicitations-"and that,' said Fa
ther Gwynn, 'was something that I
fippreclate very much.'
Fitting addresses were delivered
by Bishop Russell and by Father
Gwynn, who returned his thanks for
the splendid tribute given him. The
children of the parish, the congrega
tion, and the clergy of the diocese
presented purses to him, but, with
out knowing what they contained, be

of the Sacred Heart Academy for the
new building, saying that they de
served such recognition for the won
derful work they have done for edu
cation and religion here. The gift of
the children he would keep, said
Father Gwynn, for he felt that was
enough for him.
"The first part of the program was
a most appropriate Jubilee celebra
tion by the pupils of the Sacred
Heart Academy, who gave an uncom
monly clever entertainment, singing
songs in honor of Father Gwynn mid
voicing their good wishes for him.
\11 the participants were well trained
by the sisters of tho academy. The
boys, coming on tho stage whistling

"Mayor Ilarvley, who was to have
spoken on behalf of the citizens of
??reenville, was detained by illness,
but Mr. Love read a letter from him
In which the city's chief executive
laid that Father Gwynn holds a large
placo in the civic and religious life
of the community and is regarded
with high admiration by tho citizens
generally, irrespective of creed."
Father Gwynn made quite lengthy
remarkB, in which he spoke feelingly
of many things in a general way. In
concluding his remarks, he said:
"I have been made happy by all
the nice things said about me during
the jubilee, but that the ideal priest,
rather than myself, has been lauded.
Still, it is lovely to hear it. To have
tho affection of tho children, as man
ifested during the evening, Is a glor
ious compensation. The priesthood
has Its difficulties, but tho priest ls
:i thousnnd times compensated by tho
love of bis people, especially of tho
children. What I have '>een able to
iiccomplish in Greenv' .? has been

hope it will stimulate me to try to
