GOOD REViVAL MEETING.
Last week it was my goodl fortune'
to have with me in my protracted
meetingat Keowee church, in Abbe.
ville county, Rev. Ben G. Field, of
Greenville, who will be rememberedl
by our readers as a Pickens county
boy. Bro. Field has been preaching
only a few years, and to hear him
preach seems little short of a nmodern
miracle. He is a unionizer, logician
and orator, all in one. In fact, he is
a great 'preacher, and if the Lord
shall spare his life for many years
he wvill doubtless stand in the ranks,
of our leading preachers. The truth
is. he is entitled to be' there nowv.
For eight days the great crowvds
came to hear this gifted young
preacher, and you could hear the
poeple on every side remark that
he wvas one of the best preachers
they had ever heard. We wvere for
tunate in having P'rofs. R. M. Bold'
ings and .J. II. Riggins, both of
PicI ens to do the singing and they
charmed the p~eople wvith their gospel
songs The spirit of the Lord wvas
present and the church was greatly
revived. This Pickens out~it captur
ed the Abbeville people.
