From Our Monthly.
In 1845, there were in Laurens county,
the following Churches, with total white
membership as follows:
Little River,. 16.
?.aureus .(.'. H.82.
Bethany; ...'./.. ..,.110.
Rooky Springs,. 04.
N. Harmony,. 28.
Iii all tbeso Afty years lacking two, we
have scarcely more than doubled, there
being now 1130 members in tho county.
Evory church in this list has either held
its own or gained in membership ex
copt one, and that is Bethany, which was
then the largest church in tho county
and with thooxception of tho Nazereth
and Fairvlow, the largest in the whole
Prosbytory covering seven counties. All
of these nine churches evidence the vi
tality of a Presbyterian Church. But
tbo fact that only 7 new churches have
boon organized does not speak well for
I heir fecundity.

To Editor of Advertiser:
As a member of tbo class so strongly
inveighed against by "S" in the last l3
suoof the Advertiser, it behooves mo
both to endeavor to produce somewhat
of adofense against the majority of the
charges made and yet to acknowledge
my conourreuco In some of his views,
and my thorough appreciation of tho
fact that through all he sooms to have
had the good of the community at heart.
That society is needed in Laurons is
an undeniable fact, and that she is wo
fully behind hor sister cities in that par
ticular is also indisputable, but whero
your contributor ol last week mado a
very sweeping statement was in saying
ing that tbe prime oauso of this stato of
thiugft was "selfishness."
Wo arc only to well awaro of tho fact
that our daughters are growing old bo
fore their time, and that our boys neod
to spend their leisure more profitably
than by bocoming accomplished loafers
but to all these things wo have bocome
The writer does not do us poor women
the slightest justice but what mas
culine mind ever will bo able to grasp
the fact that we are all Marthas, busy
with much sorvlng and, I may add, for
tho sake ol tbo comfort and happinoss
of tbo "Lords of Creation" iu nine oases
out of ten. Selfish wo mothers are not,
but busy, full of many oaros, wo un
Tho care for tho material well boiug of
our children is too engrossing to prevent
of our doing more for thorn. Wo worry
ourselves no little when wo have time to
think of those things, which is not often,
but we know not how to help tho mat
ter. Instinctively wo turn to another
to aid us on this line. Who should as
sume this duty if not the fathers? They
at least have their ovenings at their dis
posal with never a thought of what is to
bo bad for breakfast or tbo fear of the
servant's taking French leavo to spring
upon tbeir minds?but tbero is nothing
so pleasant as an arm chair and a cigar?
or courso that ends the mattor, ended It
in fact long years ago. So it appears to
your correspondent, Mr. Editor, that
selfishness might be charged, if anything
of discredit could be, to tho opposite sex,
without Baying one word against the
woman, the variety of whose occupa
tions would appoar incredible if enume
Still something ought to bo dope for
our young folks, for our girls and "S"
oan lay the "flattering unction to bis
soul" that his words have determined
ono woman, at least, to "bo up and do
ing" in somo wise even though she fail,
that it may bo no longor said that "the
need of aocloty in .Laurens" is duo to
tho non-self-sacrificing spirit of its wo

Muster and Servant Meet after
About 1854 Benjamin Allston, a
son of Gov. Allston, of S. C, was
graduated from West Point, and
commissioned as a Lieutenant in
the regular army. Gov, Allston
presented his son with a young
negro by the name of Theophllus,
as a body servant. In 1855, Lieut.
Allston was stationed with his
command at Salt Luke City. On
leaving Salt Lake, Theopilus, who
had found an attachment there,
was at his request, sold to a resl
Ident and left. After many vicissi
tudes of military and civil life, Lt.
Allston became a minister of the
Episcopal church, but never hoard
anything more of his old servant
until a night or two ago, and it
came about in this way. Somo
years ago a colored shoemaker, by
the name of Nolson Wright, went
to a gentleman, who had married
a relative of the A listens and told
him that he had boon an army ser
vant of Benjamin Allston and
miked him when; Mr, A listen was,
The gentleman did not know, but
soon ascertained that tho soldier
had become a priest, and so in
formed Nelson Wright, promising
him, at the same time that he
would. If tho opportunity ever oc
curred, bring him face to face, with
his former master. Tho opportu
nity was furnished by the meeting
of the Greenville Convocation at
this place and the coming to it of
tip) Bov. Ben)t? ii Allston, of
Union. 1 *
When Mr. Allston was told of
the presence in the communty of
his old servant, he wua astonished
beyond measure, said that his
right name was Theophllus, and
that he had not heard a breath of
him though often thinking of- him
and being Inquired of about him,
by the mother and other relatives

The Married Belle.
Nowhere does tho young married
woman i eign in greater supremacy
than in the social circles of our
own land. She has overcome the
shyness of girlhood, though in
many cases she is still young
enough to be in tho school-room.
Her manners have acquired a cer
tain roundness and her conversa
tion a grace and elcganco that
make her most attractive to men,
both old and young. Being herself
matrimonially disposed of, a man
has no compunction in paying her
attentions that would bo at once
misconstrued if given to her single
sister. He can dance with her as
often as ho likes, chat with her
freely, and tho world after their
second meeting does not announce
their engagement. Moreover tho
married woman understand i men
better the debutante. Tho latter,
expecting to receivo adoration, is
vexed and put out if she does not
obtain as much as she deems suffi
cient as tribute to her beauty.
Tho married woman, on the other
hand, has learned by experience
that men expect to be flattered as
well as women, and In a happy lit
tle way of her own appeals to a
man's vanity and does not for one
moment bore him. which is the se
cret of the entire mattor. There
is no placo so thoroughly delight
ful to visit as tho homo of a young
couple whoso tastes are congenial
and whose hospitable instincts wel
come within their gates friends of
husband and wife alike. A man is
proud of the wifo that is'popular
with his friends; that, however,
does not mean tho one who makes
eyes and flirts boldly with every
man that is introduced to her, but
tho ono who holds out a friendly
hand to the men friends who find
hor house plensanlor than thp club,
because presided over by a bright
woman who is not fussy if thoy
smoke in her parlor and who adds
to rather than dotracts from their
meetings. Sho it is whom they
will swear by, whom they regard |
in tho light of a sister, and who is

J. DOUGLAS PITTS,
Whose Fair Yonur. Life Closed Uerc on Earth
on the Morning; of June 30, 189?.
And we have parted, Douglas ; thou art
Gone in thine early bloom, meek suiter
Thy weary spirit breathed itself to sleep
So peacefully, it seemed a sin to weep
In those fond watchers who around thee
And felt even then that God was greatly
Like stars that struggle through the
clouds of night,
Thine eyes one moment caught a glo*
As if to thee in that dread hour 'twere
To know on earth what faith believes of
Then, like tired breezes didst thou sink
Nor one, one pang the awful change con
Death stole in softness o'er that noble
And touched each feature with a new
On check und brow unearthly beauty
And told that life's poor cares had
But could we see thee in that land
To which thy soul bath iled,
White-robed amid the shining band
Around the great white Throne to stand,
With golden harp and angel hand
And glory crowned bead,
We conld not mourn thine early doom,
Nor dream thee with the dead,
Faith lost in sight beyond the tomb
Would all our lonely way illume,
And o'er the grave's victorious gloom
Eternal radiance shed.
