Lost evening thoro was a grand ro
coptlon given in honor of Boyd's Mod
ern Mlnistrels by tho different orders
of our city. Grand, becauso it roprc
sontod Odd Follows, Masons, K. of P.,
Elks and Forrostors, each vlolng with
tho other from tho fact that there is
in the company 8 Masons, 14 Ola Fol
lows, and as many K. of P., Elks and
Foresters as thoro Is of most of tho
other secret societies, and on tho wholo
it seems as if thoro wus a grand union
among thorn, so much so that they will
always bo romombered here as a com
pany of one grand brotherhood, and
ono organization on tho road which
presents not only grand ontortain
monts, but probably contains more
members connoctod with tho many dif
ferent soolotles than any other. As to
their rolatlvo merit, wo would say that
tho company was a strong ono from
start to finish?aud the long gusts of
laughter could demonstrate one fact
only; they camo to plouso and succeed
ed, and our best wishes go with them
to our sister cities.?Phila. Enquirer.

On Friday while a car of cotton seed
was being unleaded at tho Greonvillo
& Laurons depot hero a mysterious
find was made. It was tho loft oar of
a human bolng. From tho long black
hair growing upon Its lobo it belongs
to a whlto person, whether man or wo
man Is a subject of conjecture. Tho
size, indicates that It is tho car of a
woman, but it is argued that no woman
allows tho hair about her oars to grow
so long. Cortainly no negro has long
blackball* growing upon his oars.
This member was apparently clipped
from somebody's head by a man who
know his business. It was cut cloanly
and clearly. It ovidontly grew on
somebody's head. From its appear
anco it grow on the head of a white
man or woman. Tho question is, how
did it como to bo severed from tho head
to which It originally belonged. People
in this country do not cut off" tho cars
of other people without remarkablo
provocation. Therefore it is fair to
Bupposo that thoro is a tragic history
connected with this oar, whether It bo
longod to man or woman.
Tho car In which It was found was
shipped by Cralg Bros, from Ora, Lau
rons county. Maybe somebody In that
county can toll us why tho oar was
severed from tho hoad to which it be
longed and how it camo to bo an unex
pected part of a load of cotton seed.
It camo from somobody's hoad boyond
doubt. Whether that somebody was
alive or doad, whlto or black, male or
female is a matter of speculation. The
solution of tho mystery Is betwoon bore
and Ora. Doctors who have soon tho
member bollovo it camo from tho hoad
of a whlto man and was cut away by a
skilled hand.?Greonvillo News.

W. T. McEr.HOY,
The Bouth Carolina Conference of
the M. E Church, South, as previously
announced convened in this city in an
nual boeslon on Wednesday last at 9:30
A. M. in the ample Court Room of tho
County Court House. Tho attendance
was very full, composed of tho minis
tern of the Church, lay dologatOs and
tho Bishop. Uishop Keonor,. tho senior
Bishop of tho Southern Church, held
tho gavol and presided over tho del lb
orations of tho body. It is useless to
say and we could not omphasl/.o kuWo
iontly that the body was composed of
delegates of great power and contained
many men of unusual strongth and
ubllity. Wo rogrot that our space Is
inadequate to give to our readors moro
than a skeleton or baro abstract of the
procoedlnge,~whlch woro varied and of
oxceodlng Interest to the lay roador or
ordinary spectator. Again, wo can
only mention by the way how vory
greatly our people of all denominations
and shades enjoyed tho social features
attondlng the presence of the repre
sentatives of this great branch of tho
church of the Master in our llttlo city.
Tho occasion will constitute an epoch
in Lau rens and wowillllvo tohopo that
in years to cOmo and that not too long,
wo may have this ? groat honor and
Bishop Keenor lives in New OrloanB,
and is now advanced in years; but Is
well preserved, vigorous In Intellect,
presides with grace and dignity and is
full of power and brightness and is a
personality that cannot bo forgotton.
Bishop Wallace Duncan, ono of tho
junior Bishops of our own Stato, of
whom wo may woll bo proud for his
many gracos and accomplishments,
was present during the sossion and oc
cupied a seat with tho Presiding
Bishop. Ho was here as tho chairman
of tho Board of Trustees of WoiTord
Collogo, tho leading literary Institution
in tho Stato under tho supervision of
the Conforonco." Rov. Char los B. Smith
was elected Financial Agent of this
Institution an important position form
erly hold by his distinguished brother,
A. Coke Smith, now of Norfolk, Vn.
Conference was addressed by tho Pres
ident of Randolph Macon College, Dr.
W. W. Smith, of Virginia, upon the
educational work and interests of tho
church, South, and whilo full of statis
tical information, his address was so
eloquently and gracefully delivered us
t? dollght and captivate tho great
Rov. J. Walter Daniel, a native- tft
Laurens, 'delivered In tho Methodist
church, tho address boforo tho Histor
ical Society, which met with great ap
plause, and did tho spoaker much
honor. Tho fact that wo could claim
him as to tho manor born, added to tho
zest which tho homo portion of tho
largo audience took in tho occasion.
Dr. J. D. Barboo, of Nashville, Ten
nessee, was a prominent figure of the
occasion, and delivered addresses, not
ably in tho Presbyterian church upon
tho subjoct of church oxtonslon.
Ono of tho beautiful incidonts oc
curred on Wodnesday, when Bishop
Duncan exhibited a handsome gavel
presented to him by Conforonco four
years ago. It represents ''Exohnnge
of two worlds" consists of an exquisite
contro polished ivory piece, pierced by
tho handlo of wood, tho ivory pieco in
tho form of a biblo, at either ond a sli
ver globo of about ono Inch in diame
ter; each separate part inlaid with
gold with distinctive und appropriate
inscriptions, "Rule In tho foar of God;"
"Tho world is my parish," understood
to bo from Wosloy; "Heaven is my aim
to roach," also probably from Wesloy.
Tho bundle, composed of wood, was
obtained in London from a table used
by John Wesloy. Hero there was
pleasant badinugo when Bishop
Keener hold up a plain uuornamontod
gavol, which lie explained had boon
wielded by his distinguished predeces
sors, Pierce, McTeer and others groat
in tho church in times past. With
much pleasantry ho said Bishop Dun
can's was too fine and didn't havo much
"Methodism" in It.
Ono of tho delightful features of the
occasion, to our own pooplo was, as it
woro, tho bringing back to us in ro
union many sons of Laurens, and from
all parts of our county, who in yoars
gono by and later, havo given their
livos to tho service Of the Master, their
zeal and their best devotion, loavlng
bohlnd their natlvo hills and stroams
and Holds and tho pleasant faces of pa
rents, sisters and friends; Again, it
was, a dolight to greet those, who,
though not born among us, had dwolt
and labored hero, had ondearod thom
solves by sharing our joys and sorrows,
and thus had made themselves and
theirs of our homes und hoarts.
Tho churches in tho city and sovoral
In the country wore filled by visiting
ministers on Sabbath last. Bishop
Keonor preached at 11 A. M. In tho
beautiful Presbyterian Church to a
packed audience from 1st verso, St.
John, 21at chapter; Tho power of God
In Nature. It was a masterly discussion
of tho toxt and greatly onjoyod. After
tho sermon a olass of twonty-ono men
ordained to the offico of Deacon, tho
B^hop administering tho ceremony
with laying on of hands. An orphan
