District Conference. The G'okesbury District Conference for 18SS convened at Abbeville July 19, at 9 A. M., Bishop W. W. Duncan in the Chair. The opening sermon was preached by Rev. J. L. Stokes. All the financial, educational and spiritual interests of the church were carefully canvassed and, judging from I the reports, it would seem that Methodism within the bounds of the Cokes-1 bury Dist rict is on rising ground. Quite a full delegation of both) preachers and laymen were in attendance and the presiding Bishop gave all *"* 1 * Al diligence to awaKen wuniu tumu mr importance of close and thorough work in all the various departments of the church. Dr. A. Coke Smith, of Wo fiord College, Prof. Rembert, of Woft'ord Fitting School, and Col. Clinkscales, of Columbia Female College, were present aud represented these institutions as essential factors in the Christian civilization of our State and as of special interest to the Methodism of the State. It is to be hoped the members of the Conference went home more deeply impressed with the importance of Christian education, and with the determination to do all in their power to increase the zeal of the people in this all-important work. The day has come when the neglect of Christian education means to defraud the rising generations and restrict the possibilities and the blissful realizations of our offspring. Rev. W. D. Kirkland, editor of the Southern Christian Advocate, and Rev. T. H. Law, of the American Bible Society, were present, and presented the causes they represent. The preaching of the occasion was impressive and instructive, and^espe> cially that of the Bishop and Dr. Smith. The people of Abbeville, who are notorious for their hospitality and kindness, gave the Conference a handsome entertainment, and after all the business was transacted, and thanks returned, all took their departure, carrying with them pleasant recollections and, we trust, the inspiration of the occasion. Vote Intelligently. We are approaching the 4tli of August at which time we expect a crowd of candidates and citizens to visit our town, and we hope to enjoy the pleasure of meeting many with whom we are not at present acquainted. In behalf of the citizens of Lowndesville, we exteud to all a hearty welcome. We think it nothing but fair and proper, however, upon that occasion, to interrogate the candidates for the Legislature, as to how they stand upon certain political questions, and we doubt not but the candidates win rbe williug to unbosom themselves as to how they stand on these mooted questions. If any man is so narrow and straightened as to flinch at this point, then it is well enough for our people to know it, and that. he be left at home. Abbeville. County has already determined for herself the quesprohibition, and next January our County becomes diy by the voice . of the people, but we think it a duty we owe our sister counties, to ask the candidates of Abbeville county that should one or more of them petition to the Legislature for local option, how would they vote ? If any candidate objects to committing himself at this point, as citizens of a common country with mutual interests, we have a right to oppose his election, and it behooves us as lovers of our country to do so. This should be no matter of personal like or dislike or complimentary to kens of friendship, but it siiouiu ne with every citizen a matter of principle, upon which rests the most vital interest of our homes and liresides, aud of our religion and civilization. We hope our people will think of this matter, and seize their opportunity. Mr. J. M. Baker, junior editor of the Advertiser, was suddenly called away last week by telegram to Morgan ton, X. (J., to see his wife who is sick with fever. In a letter just received from Mr. Baker, he informs us that she was just iu the midst of the crisis when he wrote, with some symtoms favorable. We hope she is better ere this, and that she will scon be restored to health. The P. K. <fc W. C.

Guess she won't care? Forest nod Stream. A man who bad a scolding wife, being asked what he did for a living, replied that he "kept a hot-honse." j A Christian grieves over sin, because it displeases God, dishonors the Saviour aud grieves the Holy Ghost, As if you eou'd kill time without injuring eternity. The labor of the body frees us from pains of the mind. Great hearts alone understand how much glory there is in being good. Innocency towards God as well as man, is impentrable armor. There can be no Christianity where there is no charity. A sound discretion is not so much indicated by never making a mistake as by never repeating it. We arc never so ridiculous for the qualities we have, as for those we affect to have. If we did some little act of kindness every day, what a beautiful record our years would present. The great fault of penetration is not that of going to the end, but of passing it. When any calamity has been suf* Al- 5 * ? MAti-tAmKni'Ofl fereit, tne nrst uiiiig w ucicnicmusivu is how much has been escaped. One of the greatest causes of trouble in this world is the habit people have of talking faster than they think. Electricity always seeks the best conductor. * God uses those who are most in liannony with himself. One may live a conqueror, a king, a magistrate, but he must die a manJohn Wesley used to say: "Pass smoothly over the perversnessof those you have to do with, and go forward." Don't hunt happiness?do honest work and happiness will hunt yon. Pity sinners, and endeavor to reclaim them, rather than aggrevate or publish their crimes. Never forget that the Lord Jesus knows all you think of him, say about him aud do for him. We never graduate in religion: because the nearer weare to God, th'e more we see there is to be learned. Few things are necessary to make a wiseman happy. Nothing contents a fool, and this is why most men are miserable. Notwithstanding all thq mercy with the Lord, all the mercy that is offered in the promise, the Lord never prom ised a sinner his inercy to-morrow. If we would have God to hear what we say to him by prayer, we must be ready to say what he saith to us by his word. Oh that we could always think of God as we do of a friend, as of one who unfeignedly loves us, even more than we do ourselves. All deception in the course of life is, indeed, nothing else but a lie reduced to practice, and falsehood passing from words to things. j The greatest evils in life have had their rise from somewhat which was thought of too little importance to be attended to. The nearer the soul is to God the less its perturbations as the point nearest the centre of a circle is subject to the least motion. He went about doing good:'1?this is the pattern for every Christian. He is & counterfeit one, who dose not strive to imitate it. ?The legends tell That He, the Meek One, bowed His head to death, "Pi'pn nn an asnen cross. And from that fearful hour Aspens have quivered as with conscious dread Of that foul crime which bowed the meek Redeemer's head. Nothing wins love like unselfish thought fulness for others. He who thinks nothing of himself in his intercourse with his fellows, is surest to make his fellows think of hiiri with gratitude, when they are with him, "and when they are away from him. There is no way of winning a place in the hearts of all, like losing all thought of one's self or of one's claim on the love of any. R. M.

Buist Turnip Seed. ltuta Baga, Yellow Aberdeen, Yttllow Amber, Mammoth Red Top, White Norfork and Seven Top, at E. A. TEMPLETON. I Capital Advice.-Chas. Kingsley well said : "Never hart any one's selfrespect. Never trample on any soul, though it may belying in the veriest mire, for the last spark of self-respect is its only hope, its only chance; the last seed of a new and better life; the voice of God, which still whispers to it, 'You are not what you can be. You are still God's child, still an immortal soul. You may rise yet and conquer yet, and be a man yet, after the likeness of God who made you, and Christ who died for you.' Oh, why crush that voice in any heart? If you do, the poor creature is lost, and lies where he or she falls, and- never tries to rise again." The too-prevalent disregard of the spirit of obligations, and the readiness to press technical advantages in business, litigation, and legislation, are among the signs of the times that grieve good men. Let the pulpit, the press and the bench blister such sheltered rascality. A delicate and flexible demeanor is a prominent trait in polished life.? The hostility of the truly great is al ways marked by courteous generosity, while raelidocrity is perpetually envious toward original minds and magnanimous thoughts.
