Lodge, A. P. M., with Worshipful
Master T. C. Walton presiding, and
assisted by tho pastors ot' all tho
churches or the c;?v aud several pas
tors from churches from outside of tho
city. The ceremonies wore impressive
and instructive, full ot good cheer, en
couragement and congratulation, and
were witnessed and listened to by a
large gatheilng of interested citizens.
Many beautiful odes were suug by a
choir composed of ladies and men from
the choira of tho different denomina
tions Of the city. A number of short
addresses were made which sparkled
with words of love and encouragement j
and friendly interest. A spirit of gen-!
uino Christian gladness characterized
the ceremonies. As remarked in sub
stance by Rev. Afr. Murchison, it is tit
tins that, in this day of cotton mill
building and commercial enterprise
and success in Anderson, a church
should be built and dedicated to God.
And it is indeed gratifying to know
that spiritual development is keeping
8ace with indubtrial and commercial
evelopment in this rapidly growing
city. The program of these ceremonies,
as published last week, was carried out.
that Rev. J. D. Chapm a M anti

of the Long Branch Baptist Church,
were present and delivered short but
highly pleasing aud encouraging ad
dresses. In laying the Corner Stone
the historic lafayette trowel was
used. It is of sterling silver, with
ivory handle, and its history dates
back to 1825, when it was first used by
Lafayette in laying tho Corner Stone
of the monument erected to the Baron
' De Kalb, who was the friend and com
panion-in-arms of Lafayette. On the
I occasion of the laying of the Corner
Stones of the Masonic Temple and the
Confederate monument thiB trowel
was used. Many ribbons attached to
the handle of this trowel indicate tho
many similar occasions on which it has
been used. In the Corner Stone of
tho Central Presbyterian Church were
placed: Roll of officers and members of
the iii He i eut churches of the city, roll
