Mr. Editor :?A. largo body of
Ministers will meet in Conference at
this place on ?Vcdriesdny next
Decemocr 15th. The citizens gener
ally have shown gtcnt willingness to
lid in entertaining the delegates, and
wheu they could do so, we be live have
opened their doors for this purpose.
I suppose at least forty or fifty
Ministers, connected with the differ
cut committies, will be. here on Satur
day, by day or night train. We re
gret the necessity that lions so many
to reach here by *'ie Columbia mid
night train, but it is wholly unavoid
able. The delegate.) Would be forced
to lie over in Columbia nnd pay a
hotel bill and oniunibus fare and leave
home twenty-four hours earlier to
make this place by the day (rain on
Saturday. The .same difficulty will
confront them Tuesday 14th. The
great majority of the delegates there
fore will arrive ben? by night train on
Sat unlay and Tue-dav next. This
notice is due the friends who oiler us
assistance in their entertainment. All
that we would suggest, is. that those
families looking for company put
themselves to as little trouble as poss
ible, by simply keeping a lamp burn
ing so that t he delegates may he shown
their room without undue disturbance
to the household.

Dr. J. Mile-; 11 unter has made a
specialty of the treatment of Cancers,
Tumors, Cbronic, 1 "leers, Scrofula,
Female Diseases*, Szpbilis, Dropsy,
Liver Diseases? Skin Disease, and all
other Chronic affections, and his suc
cess in this line of practice has been
a most wonderful event in the His
tory of modern medical practice. His
treatment of cancers and tumors, is
somewhat eccentric as iticy arc re
moved and cured without Iho use of
the knife, without the loss of blond,
and with but little pain to Hie patient.
Having given his undivided attention
to these special diseases and having a
daily practice of large exent, it. is
reasonable to suppose that ho is bet
ter informed as to the proper mode of
treatment necessary for a perfect cure,
than most of the medical professors
ordinarally. Wc know of several in
stances in this immcdiact section of
the country where be hits effected per
manent cures of cancers and
diseases peculiar to females, and
the large number of certificates in his
possession speak for themselves
praise for the Doctor.
From tho increased practice in this
Stato, l?r. Hunter has opened an office
at Marion So. Ca., and nil! bo there
every Friday and Saturday, and at
Suniter every Monday, Tuesday and
