been too common in the past.

' amp Meeting Notes.
MR. EDITon : ' The Camp meeinug
at T welve Mile, in this County, 'began
on jFriday night last.- The writer left
Easley, at a late hobur Satmrdty morn
lng, anid after a. di'lve of two and a
half hours .through. thie mud, drew up1
-at the Camp-ground .iust in time to gol
dinner with a god brother. At 2 oi.
clock the Presiding Elder called the
Quarterly Conference together to look
after the business and finances of the
Pickens Circuit. The preacher in
charge reported some sixty odd addi
tions to the Church during the last
Quarter and seven Sunday Schools in
operation on the Circult. There was
paid for the support of the preacher
for last quarter $159.50. Some of the
churches are behind with their assess
mients for their preacher's support, but
promised to pay out. before' the close
of the year, and doubtless will, as Rev.
Ellwell is popular with his people and
this closes his 4th year among us. Many
are sorry to give him up, knowing his
place will be hard to be supplied among
us. The preaching was goo(. On
Saturday night many came to the al
ter for prayer and the Church seemed
much revived. At an early hour Sun
day morning the people begani to pour
in horse-back, foot-back, in their wag
ons, buggies and carriages. Our little
towii was well represented, aid till
seemed to enjoy themselves. At elev
en o'clock Rev. Herbert preached ia
Missionary sermon to a large and at ten
tive congregation, after which there
was a collection taken up for Missions,
amounting to something over fifty dol
lars. In the afternoon there was
short talks made to the children and
young people by Revs. Wood, Guess
and Elwell, after which the large con
gregation began leavingfor their homes
The crowd was estimated to be the
largest ever assembled at 12 Mile.
The order was perfect, nothing to mar
the pleasantness of the occasion, which
speaks well for our people. we left
the ground feeling that it was pleasant
to go up 111and worship with the people
of Twelve Mijle, and hoping that we
might live long enongh to enjoy nIumy
such seasons.
Mr. Editors I wish you much success
in your new tield and hope that our
peole will patronlize youtr paper lih
erally. .W.
