Religious Meeting at Plckens.
The Rov. N. J. Holmes, of Green
ville, Preaching to the People
with Gratifying Results ? A
Methodist Revival to follow.
PlOKENS, 8. 0.| Feb. 7.-?The Rev.
N. J. Holmes, of Greenville has
been conducting a meeting here
for sixteen days and nights in the
Presbyterian church, during which
lime at times the weather was so
unsettled that it seemed impossi
ble to proceed at all, but still some
would go to each service and from
time to time much interest was
manifested. Mr. Holmes had the
co-operation of all pastors in town
and of all private members who
rendered valuable service in song
and prayer. The preaching was all
good and very much to tho point
and nearly every phazoof sin and
all of its grovelling appetites were
handled in order and still not a
fingle expression of "slang" es
caped the lips of tho preacher.
It is consoling to an' Intelligent
congregation iu these days of vice
and immorality to know that
thero are men who can preach on
all subjects without the use of
The congregations were good in
the main, but specially so toward
the close and every one seemed to
be porry when the meeting broke.
Mr. Holmes' preaching will be re
membered by all for years to come
and many will doubtless date their
first religious determinations back
to the January meeting in Pick
As some of the results there were
ten accessions to tho Presbyterian
church and three to the Methodist
church. Dr. Rtley, the pastor bap
tized and received all the candi
dates into the church at the close
of the meeting, each one having
passed the approval of the session

Tli3 Teachers' As?ociation of

city on Saturday, 15th inet.
Teachers who would attend a
sammer school will nottTy the Com
missioner at"hn early date by card ;
so that the Board can make ar
rangement* about it, Whether we
have a summer sohool depends up
on the number of teachers that
wish to attend. Tenohera who are
in need of a sahool register, can

Essentials to Successful Teach
There is no avocation or profes
sion'to which men are called in this
life that involves greater responsi
bility than that of teaching. The
truth of this s.atement is evident
when we rOcognizo the fact I hat
teachers are a great factor in j
moulding the thought and senti
ment of those wjao in a few years
are to hold the most important of
fices and positions in church and
state. Tlnro is n ) end to a teacher'*?
influence. Every day that In la
bors in tho schoolroom he leaves a
lasting impress upon the young
minds with whom lie comes in con
tact. Realizing, then, tho groat re
sponsibility which ho has to carry,
a teacher should strive with nil hip
mightjto fulfill his duties conscien
There arc many difficulties with
which a teacher hos to contend ; the
first and most formidable of which
is self. Ho must make u careful
study of his own disposition and
lind out where his defects as a leach
or lie. If he bai a quick temper he
must learn to o ercome (hat ; if he
is impatient he must learn ti ovor ?
oome that, und in whatever point
he finds himself weak, ho muststrive
to grow .strong.
We must learn to control our
-elves before we can control others.
With these preliminary remarks,
(et U3 pass on to the consideration
of the essentials to successful tench
ing. In the first plac\ a teacher
should be possessed of n considera
ble degree of firmness. If you ece
a man who i-< not de? .-rmined in his
purpose and who leis himself be
influenced by (ho opinions of every
ono you may at once sot him down
at a man who will not do to teach.
It)von children admire firmness in
any ono, and on tho contrary have
not much respeot for a man who
suffers himself infiuen ed by what
evory ono says.
Along with firmness should he
mentioned executive ability, for
firmness and executive ability, go
hand in hand. One may bo safe in
making the assertion that a man's
tsuoce?s in lifo depends largely upon
his ability to influence and control
other?. This is true in any avoca
tion in life, but especially in teach
In order to ?11 successful work
in the "ohool-room, a teacher must
enf< tm order an i good behavior on
the pat t of the pupil?. It is impossi
ble to teach or study in a room
where Ihere is noise and confusion.
Another quality which a teacher
?should have is aptness to tench. It
makes no difference how intellectual
one maybe if he ha- not the ability
to impart knowledge he is eadly
deficient, though this deficiency in
many oases may be remedied by
experienc?. Truths have to be pros
sntad to young minds in stich a
way as t.> bo grasped readily and
retained. Some have not the ability
to present ideas in this simple and
attractive style, and those of this
class will li id it hard to hold the
attention of the pupil-i which is very
necessary for the proper advance
ment of I he child.
There is qjie other thing that is
nece-sary for successful teaching
and that if, the teach?r mu-t bo
It is impossible to teach or ex-'
plain something to a child which
you do not understand yourself.
The necessity of being competent is
?< o plain to need Further emphasis.
Bolides ihc oaaential qualities'al
ready mentioned, viz., firmness and
executive ability, aptness to teach,
and competency, there are several
others which might bn mentioned,
but wo will only men'ion ono other,
Love. A teachor must have some
loVo in his heart for his pupils,
otherwise hi* teaching will lack that
softening and refining influence
which it (h ?uld have. If the teacher
loves his pupils he may bo sure that
it will bo reciprocated, and it is only
whan thte feeling eloos exist that
teaching is a success in tho fullest |
eensc of the term.
