PICKENS S. C
A girl descended the steps of a groa
gray church. In her hand she held i
violin case; a roll of music lay foldet
within her arm. She pausedl upon tht
lower step to reulasp the fastening o:
her long black cloak. The hood whicl
was attached fell from her head ant
disclosed a fair face with beautifu
dark blue eyes. The falling hood (is"
arranged her hair, which hung in curl
ing red-ol waves about her face.
She stretched forth I white hand and
gathered ip tho music and violin case.
As she reached the street she ab
ruptly met the gaze of a stranger; for
an1 instant they looked into each other's
eyes. She saw i man wit h at frank,
pleasant face, and dark, pointed beard.
'lie must he an artist,'' she thought,

When he reached his cinh the ,it,i

fromt It. John's church in sweet, glad
melody, "lie Has IRisen." Tt'e Jarge
church was filed with worshipers, who
orame attired in rich com es,nm in

" grey light fell through the loft staiuet
windows upon the head of the rector
who read the words, " For if we hav<
been planted together in the likeness
of Ilia death, we shall be able also in
the likeness of His resurrection." The
choir sang a glad, triumphant chorus;
then a girl arose and her slender finl
gers drew a bow softly across the
strings of a violin. A young ian

t the organ loft, and beheld the slentier
I ligure clad in black; her ruddy golden
hair curled about her brow; upon her
f breast, was pinned a white lily.
Softly the violin mourned Christ's
sufferings in the gardenl, the betrayal,
the doom, the death, the universal sor
row; thon came the pure expectant,
note of hope.
People turned wit,h breathless inter
est toward the organ loft and saw it
gentle, youthful face bonding slightly
upward. A clear sunbeam breaking
from beneath the grey clouds and
rising city mists quivered through the
stained mulhloned windows, full upon
the girl's golden head, tinged the
petals of the lily upon her bosomn, then
bhu-tr into at Hood of sunshine from
chaneel to organ loft. The clear, vic
torious music arose, " Ile llas lIisen."
The congregat ion arose in all the
pervading love and renewed happiness,
whiih seeued to descend fromt heaven
to earth. The music rang in sweet
h:irloy, then died inl Ia triumphant
note of joy and love.

Riml i ig.
The Columbia correspontlent of thi
News and Courier makes the followinl
observations on a matter of interest t(
all farmers in South Carolina :
There has been a great <teal in th(
newspapers recently about the " Bee
Trust " and how it has raised the pric(
of beef o the market. The light ha
had its good and its bad results so fai
as this State . is concerned. It 1lim
raised the price, to the consumer, of tih
meat he has had to buy, but, on ti
other hanl, it has emnphasiz<ed the op
portunities for stock raising in this sec
tion. It has opened up a market foi
South Carolina cattle and, while tht
price of hotno-raised beef has had tc
go up with the price of Western meat
it has put money into the pockets 01
those who had forethought and weni
into the market and bought beef foi
Northern and Western markets.
In previous lights that the '' heel
Ti tist " has had the Southern markets
have been ignored. No one thought
there was beef enough here to supply
an1y domand 0r to amotant,11 to anyt31hm g,
lyWhen the recent raise was enforced
the retailers in the North and East
tigired on how they could get meat to
supply the demand and not have to
buy it all from the iembers of the or.
ganiz.ation, which had raised their
prices. ''hey sett agents through the
South and it was not long before they
found a great man1y tuore cattle than
they suspected in South Carolina, that
were waitlng to go to the slaughter
pen. ''hose who had bought the cattle
andl put them up in pens found a suid.
deti demand, and where they had been
sellin,_, to local dealers for three or three
and a half cents gross, they found it
just 'As easy to sell for a cent more on
evcdy pound, and then those who knew
the conditions went to work to gather
ing up cattle and getting them near'

than t0ti head of cattle were shipped
from \Winnshoro within the last few
