All that I lave said In the address to which you listenid, 1 believe to be the aim of this school, and herefore it gives me unusuai pleasure 10 ue lere. I have left my home and come bun- , Ireds of miles, for the purpose of testllylng ny appreciation of the magniflceut work vhich has been accomplished In this commu>lty by my friends. Rev. and Mrs. Williams. I have known them lor years. They were ' >oib members oi my church, 1 bad the )leasure of uniting them in the bonds of natrimony atid when tbey left Washington 2lty for the Mouth, it was with the deepest nterestthat 1 followed tbem ; and I fell sure . rom my knowledge of botn of them, that, ) vberever, in the providence of God their lot ihould be cast, they twould make themselves eltasH power tor good. And my expecta- ' ions have not been disappointed. I have Lept myself thoroughly informed In reference to the work that they have been doing l n this community, and I have been more han pleased. If any two persons ever entered 1 ho South with an earnest desire and purpose j o do good, to do with their might whatever 1 t was possible (or them to do, tobleSBand ' ilevate our people, I believe they did. And believe more; I believe that during these 1 welve years tbal they have been in the 1 .vork, tbey have never lost sight for a mo- 1 ment of that as the crowning desire of their ' Ives. From what I know of them I do not lesltate to say, that I do not believe to-day, nat you can And anywhere In the Souta 1 imong tue hundreds ol men and women who ; ire laboring for the elevatlou of ' >ur people, two workers who are 1 nore thoroughly in earnest, and more con- ' iclentiouBiy devoted to t he great work of developing In our people, all the elements that 1 to to makeup a true manhood and woman- 1 lood. This to them it has been a work ol * ove. Into it they have put their whole ' leart, soul, mind, and strength,. And lam liore than pleased to know that their ear- 1 lest, conscientious, paiustaking, and self de- ' tying labors are appreciated by you; that ! hey ;occupy a warm place lu your hearts. I am also grateful to know that the work as 1 jarried on by them, has not only won your ' rsteem, but also the respect and sympathy, md earnest co-operation of the large and lu- ' luential class ol whiles who make up this 1 ;omm unity. In the Good Book, we are told to prove all hlngs, to hold fast that which is good, and I ' im glad that you are following this scrip- I .urai injunction.

I believe this new start, which you are now taking, is out the beginning of a still greater future. God moves in a mysterious way. Wecannot always understand His providences, but 1 initf we may ue sure ui, n v?c luuimn uui way unto Him, and trust In Him, He will always bring us out Into a larger place. And this is what I believe He Is now doing In your case. Tbls new and beautiful build- 1 Ing, and the promising outlook that is now opening up to you. clearly indicate the divine call to you both to still greater usefulness, and to a broader and more comprehen- 1 slve work for the elevation of our people. In the prosecution of this work. 1 bid you 1 Godspeed. You have my warmest sympathies and best wishes. You cannot fail if you only keep your laces to the light, and put your trust in God. .The following lines, written by some poet unknown to me, may be helpful to you in the arduous task which is betore you, aud with it I close : There's a ringing glorious measure In the march of life, ray brothers ; If we listen we may hear it all day long. With an undertone ol triumph No discordance wholly smothers. And this Is the cheerful burden ol the song: "Forward," Keep the column moving, Perfect n-st shall be our guerdon When our missions are fulfilled, our labors dune. Duty's path lies plain belore us.

Eugenia Miller Robertson and Mr. James D. Chalmers Die Nay .10, 1804. All this year our people have been notably blei-sed wlih good health, and the absence of death from among our adult people has been remarked by many. Until last Wednesday night death had claimed only two victims from among our number?two little children. During the year few hearts had been bruised, and few homes had been filled witb mourning. Joy and happiness ruled in nearly every home, and there were not many places in which tbe shadow of trloom appeared. But on last Wednesday night tbe Great Enemy claimed twootour people as his owntwo of our homes were turned into homes of mourning, and two of our families now grieve the departure of loved ones. The auditorium of the High School on that night was s sceneof light and beauty. Hoary age, strong manhood, charmlne womanhood, and sweet childhood had assembled together to witness the closing exeiclses of the academic year. Prompted by all the better emotions that move the heart, and enjoying those generous feelings that go to unite us as one, and to give us that touch of nature which makes all the world akin, each and every one was enjoying the pleasures of the evening. While representatives oi the whole town were there, and In the mldsl of those delight fa I scenes, news was received of the death of Mrs. Eugenia Robertson, wlte of Col. J. T. Robertson, and intelligence of the sad event <oon passed from one to another of the audisnce. Two young ladies were seen lo leave the ball, but no one thought anything of it. In About an hour afterward the death of Mr. JameH D. Chalmers was announced to some ane at the door, and the news soon spread throughout the audience. Professor Bailey announced that two deaths had occurred since the exercises had been sommenced. In consequence of that fact. ?nd In respect to the memory of the deceased [.here would be no further exercises this evening. Dr. J. Lowrie Wilson would dismiss the audience with the benediction. And thus it was that those whose hearts were gay ami happy were saddened by events that had sent sorrow to the homes of others. Mrs. Robertson was past middle life. She leaves three daughters and two sons. She was a keeper at home, and consecrated her life and her energies to the welfare and happiness of those who were near and dear to her. She was th? central sun around which revolved all else In that household, and, wheth sr In gladness or lu sorrow, all hearts and all ?yes turned to her. It was she who could best satisfy the cravings of the hungering heart, and it. whs she who could best minister to Its wants and desires. She was the husband's solace and comfort, and she was the lover and the guardian of trusting childhood. .She was the confessor to whom all Imparted their troubles and confided their loves, and from her all sought a strength and a power where weakness wtas felt or a comfort wus needed. Her whole heart was bound up in her children. While *he looked hopelully and confidingly to her blessed saviour, and while she reared not the Judgment that is to come, yet she reluctantly took her departure tor Hitspirit land. She felt that iter lile-work was not yet finished, and she desired to live anil to tarry yet awhile in this vail of tears, that she mlrrhr with Jind fpnrlprnpf-w wprvA hnr children and bless hei- husband with those sweet attentions which might revivn ttie sinking heart and implant, new life and new hope in the mind of him who now in deepest sorrow struggles against loss and bereavement. In the evening of Thursday at six o'clock, the funeral service was held In the Episcopal church, and as the sun sank behind the distant hills she was consigned to her last resting place. A great concourse of sorrowing people filled the Episcopal church, and as a tribute of respect followed the remains to the cemetery, where she now sleeps the sleep that knows no waking. Mr. Chalmers had been an Invalid for many years, and although he had often been at death's door, yet he had as often recovered from these severe attacks. Very few. if any, of his friends doubted that lie would again rally,and linger yetawhile with us. For this reason, his death was unexpected. Mr. Chalmers came from Newberry to Abbeville before the war and established the marble business. In the fifties lie married Miss Chris. Ramey, and to them were born several childien, only two of whom survive. Owing to his feeble health lie was unable to enter the field and undergo the hardshlpRof tlie soldier's life, but he served his country faithfully anil efficiently as an enrolling officer, and as such discharged the delicate duties conscientiously, and without oppressing anybody, and whether as soldier or citizen? in health or in sickness?he was always the hieh-toned gentleman to whom all accorded the true nobility of character. After the war he resumed his marble business in connection witli the furniture business. For nearly forty years Mr. Chalmers held a good position in the commercial world, and during all that time, and under varying circumstances, lie held the respect.and good-will of his fellowmau. Until his health was seriously impaired he was uniformly successful in business. Because of III health he had been confined to his homo for a long time?seldom coming down town in the last, two years. While he was not blessed with good health, yet he lived to see bis son and hisdnughter reach the years of maturity, and while ttieir attention and the devotion of a dutiful wife was beautiful In theyearsof hlsallliction.yei they bad something of a recompense In lib presence, his love, and his safe counsels. H* was a good citizen, and he leaves many slucere friends. The funeral service of the Methodist, ritual was read in the Methodist church, and hit body was buried at Upper Long Cane ceme tery, beside those relatives who hud gone be tore. The church was filled to overflowing, with friends and mourners. Among thosi who came from a distance to the funeral wa> Ins old and ever faithful friend. Col. .1. K Lea veil, of Newberry.

C., Ma>' 28, J891. The young folks of the Harrelfionvllle nel^h borhood met l?Rt Friday evening at the res ldence of Mr. W. A. HarreUon and organized a literary society. N. O. Pyles briefly stated the object of the meeting as follows: Ladles and Gentlemen: We have assembled dere this evening foi the purpose of organizing a Litetary Society It is an old adage that in union there It strength. Our object In organizing this so ciety is to unite our forces that we may mut ualiyaidand stimulate each other to make greater exertions to improve our education. 1 mean to use.lhe word education in its broad est sense. Not merely as it applies to u knowledge of books alone, but as it relates tc intellectual, moral, social and phyoicui condition. i God in his infinite wisdom has endowed u> with minds which are susceptible of improve' ment almost beyond limit. Around us, beneath us, above us are nature's work teaching us lessons. If we will but learn?lessons that will better lit us lor our earthly pllrimage and better prepare us for that eternal home where there is no night, no sorrow. It has been aptly said that men areas their inclinations and speak as they are taught. This, It seems, is to a certain extent true, but not wholly so. As we understand it men are largely creatures of circumstances. In other words, they are what circumstances make them. One's character is shaped to a greater or less extent by surrounding Influences. Take for Instance two boys of similar constitutions and Intellects and surround them with opposite influences. Educate one under the influence of an ungodly home, the bar room, the gambling den and other infamous dent and train up the other under the influence o) a pious mother, the church and the college and you will have two men of opposite characters?the one will be an outcast?an enemy to all that is good, while the other will be an ornament to society, ever found laboring In the highest Interest of humanity. I can see no reason why we cannot make this society which we are about to organize a source of interest and profit to each individual member. We can flnd about us many things of interest to engage our attention, Our failure or success will depend ou out Individual Interest andeftotts. We want uc drones In our midst?we want all workers. To succeed we need the combined assistance and influence of every young man and young woman in this community. You are young and active and the country needs your services and sympathy. In helping others you will help yourselves. But sow good seed In good soil and you will, in du* season, reap a rich and pleDtllul harvest. Op portunltles for doing good are abundant, then let us be up and doing, 'ere it is loo late. Lei each of us erect to himself a monument oi honor, which the ravgaes of time will noi crumble. Let us leave behind us an influence tor good which shall'be wafted on to eternity At the conclusion of the above remarks, the following constitution was read and unanimously adopted : CONSTITUTION. PitK/OiBLE?Whereas experience has shown ihm. knuwlede can be more readllv acooired ny combination of efl'ort than singly, we whose mimes are hereunto annexed, have agreed to form an association to he known a> 'l'he Harrelson Literary Society, P.

A j neig continuance of bitterness and revilings can-1 u:nj not give you any further advantage. Then hl"u rise above passion and prejudice and, while petll you hold to your opinion, allow those of your and ' neighbors ot different views to do likewise. f I To the Conservatlcs we would say; If you are right you should of all men desire the al- favo i laying of passion and the rule of pure reason.
