SOUTH CAROLINA PRESBYTERY.
Meets in the Aveleigh Presbyterian
Church-Great Success of Dav
The Presbytery of South Carolina,
one of the six presbyteries, compos
ing the synod of the Presbyterian
church in South Carolina, began its
annual session in the Aveleigh Pres
byterian church this city, on Tuesday
night. The other presbyteries of the
synod are Bethel, Charleston, Har
mony, Pee Dee and Enoree. There
are about sixty ministers in the
South Carolina Presbytery, and many
laymen, representing various churches
are in attendance.
The annual sermon was delivered
by the Rev. J. C. Shive. The organi
zation was effected by the choice of
Rev. J. J. Harrell as moderator, Rev.
S. L. Wilson as regular clerk and Rev.
J. E. James as temporary clerk.
On Wednesday morning, much of
the session was- occupied with routine
work, hearing reports from the va
rious congregations, the reportiig of
calls extended during the year, that
they might be ratified by the presby
The deepest interest was aroused
by the report from Davidson college.
This is the institution of the church
in the Carolinas and Florida. The
president reported the current year as
the most successful in the history of
the institution, not alone because of
the enrollment, two hundred and sev
enty-five students as over against
two hundred and twenty-eight last
year, but because of a spiritual work
that has scarcely been parallelled in
any college history. In common with
all the denominations the Presbyte
rian church has felt the decline of in
terest on the part of its young men in
looking forward to the ministry as a
life work. Several years ago the
synods and presbyteries of the south
began making these conditions the
subject of special prayer. The re
sults have been seen in Davidson col
lege. In 1902-1903 there were in the
institution 34 candidates for the min
istry; in 1903-1904, 44; in 1904-1905,
At the opening of the session of
1905-1906, a deep religious interest
began to pervade the institution,
rowing in intensity throughout the
year, until.-at this time more than one
hird of the whole student body is se
iously considering the -claims of the
inistry. Twenty-five students dur
ng the year have decided the matter
favorably, and others will likely take
he same step. The number of candi
lates for the 'ministry now in college
s eighty, and twenty of them are en
olled in the Student Volunteer Move

hey should be called.
The . subject of Foreign Missions
~vas discussed under the direction of
ev. J. C. Shive. The principal ad
fresses were those of Rev. A. R.
Woodson, who spoke interestingly

MRS. LAURA MEHRTENS.
No Finer Pianist Has Ever Visited
Though the audience that gathered
on Tuesday evening in the opera house
to hear the piano recital of Mrs.
Laura Mehrtens, given under the aus
pices of the ladies of the Baptist
church-of thiis city, was not lar-ge, it
was appreciative. It is to be .reret
ted that more of our people could not
hear this gifted musician. 'Mrs.
Mehrtens is not merely a performer
on the piano, she has the musical gift.

from which loved ones had' gone to

pray for absent ones in danger, the
rattling of the musketry of which
they dreamed, and then the joy of
