The Fall Meeting of Harmony Presbytery
Held at Midway Church,
Pursuant to adjournment the Presby
tery of Harmony convened at its fall
meeting on Wednesday the 7th inst.
at 12 in., at Midway church, Claren
don county, and was constituted by
the election of the Rev. S. L. Porter of
Summerton as Moderator and Mr. W.
J. DuRant as reading clerk. The Rev.
. E. Stephenson of May esville preach
ed the opening sermon. The atten
dance was composed of all the ministers
of the Presbytery except three detained
by sickness,and of twenty ruling elders.
The narratives on the state of religion
showed a healthful condition in grace,
progress and liberalhty. A conference
on Foreign Missions was held which
produced some enthusiasm and liberal
Ity in that line. A conference too was
held about the matter of local home
missions which brought to review our
needs in that direction and suggested.
methods of supplying them. The pas
toial relation hitherto existing be
tween the Rev. W. W. Sadler and the
group of churches consisting of Lynch
burg. Beulah and Lake City was resign

Steps were taken to install the Rev.
Mr. Holladay of Virginia as pastor of

Black river, a stream which seems to
be given over to Presbyterians. .The
people are prosperous, self-sustainig
and progressive. They live well and
have good schools. They need a rail
road, however, or some easier access to
their county seat.
They entertained the presbytery
with royal hospitality. The old custom
of furnishing dinner on the ground was
in vogue and the tables literally groan
ed under the weight and the variety of
good things served, in quantities not
only suflicient to satisfy~ the cravings of
the Presbytery to surfeiting, but also
of the crowds who are attracted to such
Midway church will always find the
Presbytery responsive to an invitation
to partake of their hospitality.

One of the events of the seasen was
the "Opening" at Jenkinson's depart
ment store last Wednesday evening.
The store was artistically arranged,and
the decorations were superb. The dis
play of dress goods and trimmings was
a credit to the management and the
clerks. There was a tremendous crowd
drawn hither by the Charleston band(?)
an aggreation of "Cha'ston niggers"
who had represented themselves as ac
complished musicians, and had secured
recommendations from some friends of
Mr. Jenkinson, but who turned out to be
worse than a nest of eggs deserted by a
hen that had set on them a whole sum
mer. The music was disappointing and
the singing of these "Cha'ston" fakes
was excruciating, not only to those who
visited the store, but to Mr. Jenkinson
himself, so much so that he gave them
their time and ducats before the con
tract was completed: no more "Cha's
ton nigger" for Jenkinson.
Every department in this immense
establishment was dressed in its best
attire, not excepting the ladies and
gentlemen who serve the trade. It is
diflicult to describe the scene on that
evening, but when we say the store
presented a scene of lovliness, we mear
that the opening was a great success, it
accomplished what Mr. Jenkinson de
sired-bringing out the multitude to
see what he das accomplished as a mer
The main attraction was in the milli
nery. presided over by ladies whose ex
perience make them adapted to know
just whether the"hat is on straight" or
if the colors suit "my complexion" and
"if the shape makes mue look bewitch
ing." These ladies are artists in shap
ing hats to make a beautiful look more
beautiful, and in taking out the sour
ness of an ugly woman's face, and act
ually when they get through with an
ugly woman, she can look square into
a n'an of real fresh-laid milk without
danger of curdling it. This depart
ment was filled all the evening with
well dressed ladies, with merry voices,
and the solemnest looking men we have
ever seen; the men enjoyed the beauty
of the hats, and the joyful promises to
buy about as much as a nervous cieat
ure enjoys having a tooth drawn by a
"painless" toothsmith. One man came
out of the millinery department with
suicide in his eye, a cigarette between
his fingers, and be did not stop until
he got right in front of the cornet play
er. He lighted the cigarette, and just
as the "Cha'ston coon" was about to
hurl him into eternity with a blast of
"Hiawatha" we rushed in and saved
the fellow by taking him out of the
side door into the fresh air,where there
was a chance to get a beer in case any
thing should happen. The poor fellow
as the fresh air hit him,gave a gasp and
asked us "did she decide to take it,"we
asked him what? He said,"that $15
hat which the lady with the continental
soldier's uniform was trying with no
mercy on me, to sell." I relieved him
by telling him the purchase was sub
ject to his approval, and he smiled one
of those leering smiles which men are
prone to, when saved from a desperate
act, and a state of uncertainty.
The occassion was enjoyed by those
who like to look at a well-arranged
store, where almost everything can be
ound, and where the proprietor and
his corps of assistants are anxioas to
