GiOOD DAY FOR COLLEGE.
Stirring Rally of Lutherans in Cal
houn County, at Old Mount Leb
St. Matthews, July 14.-Newberry
college was in the hands of its friends
at Mount Lebanon Lutheran church,
three miles below the thriving little
city of Cameron, today. This church
is the outgrowth of the old St. John,
"a German-Calvinistic church on the
Four-Hole," incorporated by the leg
islature in 1738, and long since ex
tinct. This Mount Lebanon section is
strongly Lutheran and is one of the
most prosperous sections of the State.
When the Rev. James A. B. Scherer, a
former president of Newberry college,
as straining every never to secure
$50,000 as a prerequisite to a gift from
Dr. Pearson of $25,000, this congrega
tion contributed over $4,000 of the
sum. Messrs. W. D. Hauck and David
Haigler, two prosperous farmers, and
Mrs. Ann Zimmerman, a generous
Christian woman, contributed $2,500
to the sum.
The church was full to the tloor and
the people seemed greatly interested
in the speeches for their institution,
which they love so well and patronize
so faithfully. The high class music
by the choir with Miss Carrie Haigler
at the organ, was one of the most en
tertaining features of the occasion.
The Rev. J. C. Oxner, the popular lo
cal pastor, acted as master of cere
monies in the absence of Mr. Jeff D.
Gates, the president of the College Re
union Association. The Rev. W. H.
Greever, D. D., of the Lutheran Pub
lication house, Columbia, made an ap
propriate introductory prayer.
Dr. T. H. Dreher, of St. Matthews,
was the first' speaker. He was proud
of the honor of being an alumnus of
Newberry college, and it was his con
stant aim to bring no reproach upon

tion; useless to force square pegs in
rou'd holes. In these days of graft
and corruption he pointed to the splen

and their records, unstained by the
disgraceful riotings of many educated
The Hon. Geo. B. Cromer was then
introduced. He was in fine trim and
made a most stirring appeal for one
hour, which made a fine impression.
He is a man of splendid presence, the
king bee in the Lutheran hive of South
Carolina laymen, and is immensely
popular in this section. He portray

going on in the Lutheran church from
small beginnings and numbers. There
