Mr. William Bailey, one of Greenwood's retired merchants, lias everything Arranged lu his handsomely furnlnhed residence with a view to comfort and convenience. A mend gives an antidote for hard times. It Is this: Raise more com, more hogs, and more of everything consumed on the farm, and be Buro to raise less cotton. To illustrate, betellBOfa farmer who seems to have very little energy, takes the world easy, works when it bulls him, and quits work when he leels like it, grows only one or two bales of cotton a year, but raises plenty of everything usually needed on a farm. The result is he has corn, fodder, meat and other things to sell every year and is out of debt, while his more lnduBlrlous neighbor who plantt all cotton, works bard early and late, is gutting deeper In debt every year. Upwards of two hundred pupils are in attendance at the Greenwood Graded School. A pnbllc road has been opeued up from Cole's mill to the Ray place on the Greenwood and Abbeville road.

Ordination and Confirmation Service* in Trinity Church, Abbeville ?Service* in Elberton, Ga. i A large congregation witnessed on Sunday | morulng iftHt the ordination of the Rev. Robt. A. Lee to the Dlaconate of tbe Episcopal church. He Is a recent graduate of tbe Theological Seminary at Swanee, where be took a high stand and will enter upon bis ministry at Yorkvllle, with the promise of a very useful career. The services of the Ordination, were of the most Impressive character, conducted as they were, with the Imposing ritual and sublime liturgy of the Episcopal chnrch. The white vestments of the Bishop and Priests,i the solemn words of tbe service, and the sweet music of the choir made the occasion one of nnuHual interest. Besides the Rigbt Kev. Bishop Ell loon Capers, assistant Bishop of the Diocese.'.there were present the Kev. John D. McCollough, D. D., Rev. Theodore D. Foroher, Rev. W. G. Holmes and Rev. Edward McCrady. The sermon was preached by Rev.Dr. McCollough, upon tbe Dulles and Responsibilities of the Christian Ministry, and was an able exposition of the subject, and was delivered In an earnest and Impressive manner. The Morning Prayers were read by Mr. Holmes and the Lessons by Mr. Porcher. The Ordination services followed the sermon, and afterwards the Holy Communion was administered. Miss Ellse Whltner presided at the organ with her accustomed skill, and the choir consisting of Mrs. DuPre, Mr. Willie MoGowan, Prof. Bailey aud Mr. Edwin Parker rendered the TeDeum And other chants and the hymns, In charming style. The afternoon services wer? rendered peculiarly attractive by the Confirmation of an unusually large class, by the Bishop. The evening prayers were read by Mr. Lee and tbe Lessons by Mr. Holmes, and tbe sermon whs preached by the Bishop, setting forth in his usual earnest and eloqnent style, tbe Christian graces, and earnest hopes which form tbe character of the true dlsoiple. Among those confirmed were Miss Mary Lisles, Miss Willie and Miss Florlde Colhoon and Mr. A. W. Smith, the two Messrs. DuPre, Dr. Game and Messrs, Cobb, Lisles. Perrln and Robertson. The words of Confirmation on these occasions, uttered by tbe Bishop, have always seemed to us, especially touching and Impressive, invoking as they do the Divine blessing on tbe head of tbe young disciples, and dismissing them with the choicest benedictions. This ilarge class are the first fruit* of tbe ministry of the Rev. Edward McCrady, the Rector of Trinity cnurch, and they attest bis earnest work and successful ministry. We trust, tbese are but the earnest of many other true disciples yet to be added to tbe chnrcb. Before the close of the servloes here, the. Rev. 0. T. Porcher, went over by the afternnnri trutn tn u?vu ?.?m i~ uiuvi wu, ua., auu ueiu services before oue of the largest congregations ever assembled In tbe place. There 1b here a fine opening-for successful work, and the establishment of a thriving Episcopal ohurcb. ?; *i BRIEF'S FROM BRADLEY. Political alm?Marriage? Personals and Preachers. Bradley, S. C., Oct. 2,1894. Now that the political spasm is over, we have time, and we hope you have space, to note more pleasant and peaceful theme#. Permit me to say, however, before dismissing tbe poltlcal situation, that the conservative people of both factions here are In a decided majority, and they are pleased that the regular nominees are to have no Democratio opposition at the coming general election. Tbe marriage of Mr. Robert M. Cameron, of Chicago. III., to Miss Lizzie E. Manly, of tnla vicinity, on the evening of tbe 30th, nit., was witnessed by a goouly ^number of the friends of the pretty and popular bride. Capt.

Mr. Cameron Is a first class telegraph operator from the big city of Chicago, and will take his lovely bride tnere there to live. May peace, prosperity andliapplneas be theirs, Is the wisn of all.

Ponnlfi fin nnt oliuaua folro noin X vupiv vtv uww Mi IT O KMHV ^WIU enough when instructing children in religious matters to see that they understand what is taught; consequently a child will often get entirely mistaken ideas in regard to important things, and very queer ones, too, sometimes, as the following true incidents will show. A little girl had been taught that when good people died their bodies were buried in the ground, but their souls were taken to heaven ; and not knowing that one's soul is one's self, imagined that the souls in heaven were little round things about the size of a watch crystal, and the color of a white porcelain button, ranged in rows on shelves like the plates in her mother's pautry. A Sunday school teacher in talking 4-sa hnr / ? 1 quo nf little orirla licrw? thn nrnrn dogma, and probably all that she said showed equal wisdom, for one child, struck by the word as a pretty sounding one and one she had never heard before, and getting no idea of its meaning from the connection in which it was used, thought it must mean a little dog. Henry, about twelve years old, was converted and was leading aconsistent Christian life, when one night his father heard him sobbing in bed, and went to him to see what was the trouble. He found him in great distress, fearing that he was not a Christian aud the reason he gave was that he was quite sure he should get very tired of doing nothing but sing through all eternity; and he thought, since he felt in that way, it must be that he was not a Christian. A little time spent in the endeavor to liud out what ideas the children have and in making things clear to them, Will 11UL LK? 1USU Make it plain. Our chief mission in life may be the bringing forward of one who shall transcend us in every way. If so, let U9 rejoice in performing our mission. Jesus may be nearer us to-day than we have supposed. Our eyes and ears should be open for perceiving his nearness. "He: 'I shall never marry (until I meet a woman who is my direct opposite.' " "She (encouragingly): 'Well, Mr. Duller, there are plenty of bright, intelligent girls right in this neighborhood.' "
