The Beautiful Snow.
We have rarely had in Laurens a
heavier snow fall than the visitation
of last Wednesday. Tho fall com
menced about 7 o'clock in tho morning
with sleet but in a little while the fall
camo to bo puro snow in great inch
flakes and by five in the evening the
storm had exhausted itself and was
over. A stiff Norther blew all the
day and out-door work and movomonts
woro substantially out of all ques
tion. Tho beautiful stuff measured
eleven or twelve inches on the level,
but duo to tho strong blow at every
turn and Irregula ity in the surface
thero was much drifting and in fact
tho foot paasongor was in eighteen in
ches of snow at almost every step. It
was a rare experience, with us so early
in tho winter season. It was followed
by bright, cold and clear weathor.?
The young folks improvised all manner
of sleigh, for one, two and four horse
and mule teams and took the road
bont on fun and made the most of it.
Our boya had best nurse their sleighs
and bolls, for there is an old saying
that a snow in the early winter Is apt
to bo followed by others- More than
that philosopher Hlx predicts a rough
winter. Tbo trains woro hours behind
for several days and some damage was
dono to telephone and tolegraph poles
and wires. Tbo storm largely ex
tended In the South. In many places
thero has been much destruction of
tlmbor, shade and fruit trees.

WcdncsJay morning last. Dr. Gardner,
of Greenville, preached the prelimin

Tho ministors's conference which
precedes tho organization of the con
vention was effected on Wednosday
morning. Rev. J. D. Parrott, of this
county, was ohoson as moderator of
this body. It was a high but deserved
compliment to a most zealous, earnest
and talented young Minister. The pro
ceedings aie of groat interest, but too
.elaborate for our space. The subject
of State aid to Stato Colleges and
schools was one of tho leading topics.
Ex-Judge J. B. Hudson, of Bonnotts

"Tho Rev. J. B. Parrott, of Laurens
County, is an ardent worker. Mr. Par

morning session, which no did to tho
perfect satisfaction of all concerned."
"Tho Rev. J. D. Pitts, of Laurens, is
enjoying the Convention, taking things

"An unusually Interesting member
of tho Convention is the Rev. H. R
Mosoly, now pastor of tho Rock Hill
Baptist Church. For sevon years ho
was a missionary in Mexico and his
zeal in this work boro decided fruits.
Mr. Mose'y left Mexico because of this
zeal, tho results of which were too nu
merous and apparent to suit his religi

man and will bo hoard from later in
this Convention and will continue to
be heard from when tho strong mon of

Rev. J. D. Pitts was assigned to

at Spring Street Methodist church at

On the 15th ultimo, at the residence
of Miss Patsy Griffin, near Waterloo,

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at
least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to cure In all
its stages, and that is Catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only
positive cure known to the medi
cal fraternity. Catarrh being a con
stitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh cure is taken internally,
acting directly upon tho blood and
mucous surfaces of tho system,
thereby destroying the foundation
of tho disease, and giving tho pa
tient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting nature
in doing its work. The proprietors
have so much faith in its curative
