When the subject of the speaker Is "I"
there certainly can be no objection to its use
and as the speeches had considerable reference
to the speakers themselves there Is nc
objection to Its use In this instance.

A Subscriber for Fifty-Five Tears.
S C" Mr.
Lewis Gillespie seeds us word, that be
saw tbe first copy of tbe Abbeville Ban'
ner printed. That was lu' tbe sprlog oi
1844. Tbe press was a hand press. The first
copy was given to him, and he has been a
subscriber ever since, and today has in Me
possession a greater number of copies of the
paper than any other citizen of tbe county.
This editor will try to induce him to part
with the files for the earlier years of the exist
ence of the paper. Mr. Gillespie Is a good clt>
lzen, and has now reached bis eighty-fourth
f year. We will place his name first on tbe
"Honor Roll," and he need pay no more sub'

Christians In all Lands Celebraie
the Resurrection of Onr Saviour.
" Last Sunday was Easter, and several of our
churches were beautifully decorated. Devout
congregations assembled at the services,
which were intended to commemorate the
day. "This sacred festival has been termed
the queen of festivals; it has been observed
. from the very beginning, and celebrated In
every part of the Christian world with great
solemnity and devotion."
Rev. Dr. Daniels preached from the first
eight verses of the twentieth chaptor ot St.
John, and gave a most entertaining discourse
on a subject which has been so often the
toploof pulpit utterance. He referred to the
opposition which existed in some sections to
the decoration of the bouses of worship, on
occasions like this, as being foolish, and as
the most nonsensical that bad attracted the
attention of men. Our Saviour was curled
in a garden, wbloh no doubt abounded in
flowers and presented the choicest scenes in
the living green that ever appeared to the
human eye. Flowers were the choicest and
most perfect handiwork in the great designs
of the Supreme Architect. If, therefore, our
Saviour was burled amid the living green,
and if beautiful flowers made fragant the per
iumea air, wny uuoaia uoi we, nis numoie
children, decorate temples and bouses
erected and dedicated to the worship of tbe
Lord our Ood? Our Saviour likened himself
to tbe lily of tbe valley and tbe rose of
Sharon. Then why should we not bring tbe
purest and best of earth's creation to comxnemorate
his resurrection ?
The preacher remarked upon tbe character
of Mary Magdelene. She had been a bad woman,
and bad sinued grievously. She bad offended
against tbe moral law and bad shocked
tbe sensibilities of her sisters. For this
reason sbe was shunned by otber women.
But she bad repented and althougb she had
beoome a devout follower of our Lord, yet tbe
odor or her sins lingered about her, and sbe
regarded not tbe conventionalities of polite
sooiety. Contrary to custom, sbe went out
alone. When it was yet dark, sbe went unto
tbe sepulchre, and saw that tbe stone bad
been removed from the sepulchre of our Saviour.
Sbe did this in her zeal and in her
love for her Lord, while tbe more orthodox
and more circumspect of her sisters would
bave waited for tbe coming of tbe light ol
day. Discovering that our Saviour was not
In the tomb, sbe again disregarded tbe conventionality
by which her more circumspect
sisters would have been governed. Sbe ran
to ien me uews 10 atmon feter, and to tbe
other disciples, whom she knew that Jesus
In Imitation of bis act resisting the persecution
of another woman who bad grievously
sinned, and in keeping with tbo character 01
oar Saviour who came to save sinners, and
not*to call the righteous to repentance, be
spoke to Mary Magdelene. In speaking thus
to her, Instead of to bis disciples, who were
present, there may be a lesson.
The preacher said that there were not as
much circumstantial evidence to prove any
other important event in the career of our
8avlour, us there was In oonnectlon with bis
resurrection. Everything goes to prove the
historic fact, that Christ rose from the dead.
"And if Christ be not raised, your faith Is
vain ; ye are yet in your sins."
The music of tbe occasion charmed and delighted
all who beard it.
Miss Eva Klrby, of the Senior Class In Converse
College, bad been invited to oome home
and play tbe organ on that day, and tbe vo
cal and Instrumental music could not have
been better. By her talent and accomplishments
Miss Klrby baa won distinction in col
lege, where she Is bo much beloved by classmates
and teachers. Her friends in Abbeville
are much pleased at her high stand In ConTTOKJO
THE COTTON MILL.
Notwithstanding the Had Weather
Progress Has Been Made on the
The machinery of the Abbeville Cotton Mill
is constantly being brougtat to a blgber degree
of perfection in the performance of the
work, for which it was intended. The outpat
of the mill was larger last month than
for any previous montb, and the cost was reduced.
The indications are that tbe stock ol
the mill will rate as first class. Mr. Draper,
one of tbe largest stockholders In tbe mill,
and an expert in mill matters was in town
last week, and we learD that be said this mill
is inferior to no mill in tbe country.
The work of ascertaining tbe loss by the recent
Are goes on, and everything points to an
equitable settlement by tne Insurance people.
Tbe work of putting tbe sprinkler system
in tbe warehouse baa been finished about a
week before tbe Are. It was gratifying to
bear the Insurance people say that water system
saved the warehouse and tbe cotton from
total destruction. '
The work of putting in tbe eleotrlo wires
for lighting tbe mill goes on without interruption.
The additional boilers are In place, only
waiting for a single pleoe of pipe.
The work of erecting tbe new mill bouse
progresses as rapidly as possible under tbe
disadvantages incident to tbe inclement
weather. Tbe new mil) Is of tbe same dimensions
as tbe present mill bouse. Tbe window
and door frames are In tbe walls and one wall
has been built high enough for tbe reception
of the Jolstsjof the floor.
rreBiaeni Baney la in excellent spirits as to
tbe prospects of the mill. All the circumstances
point to a successful future. And
those who have stock will hold on to It, and
those who may have expected to buy It at a
sacrifice will be disappointed.

GLORIOUS EASTF.R MORN.

While earth for gladness sings;
nd as the lilies round the dear Lord's altar.
Lift cups with sweets abrlm,
j hearts whose trust In Christ can never falter
Lift up their love to Him.
today, oh earth, sing with the heavenly
That death hath lost Its sting,
''bile to our gladdened eyes unfolds before us
The miracle of Spring.
fter the winter of the grave, the glory
Of Heaven's sweet spring, and then !?
h faith, llftup thine eyes! Repeat the storyChrist
died, but llveth again !"
Joyous Easter-tlde gladdened our hearts
;aln In 1899 with a bright beautiful day, and
I nature seemed to rejoice with mankind In
ie glad refrain?
"The Lord Is risen Indeed ;
He lives to die no more."
As has been the custom of a long time the
eibodist church was beautifully decorated
i commemoration of this, earth's greatest
;ent. Beautiful garlands of cedar were arstlcally
arranged around the pulpit arch?
rer the choir, and about the doors, wblle fes.our
and wreaths of the same Intermingled
Ith flowers were gracefully entwined about
ie altar railing,. On the recess wall behind
ie pulpit was the grand and glorious lnscrlpon,
written In bright letters of gold, "He is
sen," wblle a mound of beautlfnl lilies llftI
their snowy heads in silent praise at the
i/v? /vf ft lr? t>/*a nrnao A f otrororoan a and flna?Prn
bleb BtooS out Id bold relief against tbe
bite background. Within and around tbe
lancel were arranged potted palms, azallas,
truce pines and otber rare and beautiful
awers and decorative plants, making up a
rlgbt, beautiful picture, reminding us of tbe
ively garden of tbe East from which our
3rd arose?even amidst the sweetest flowers
wheD God tbe Father, on thit glad Easter
orn was decoratlDg, not temples made with
inds, but all nature, with tbe bursting bud,
id unfolding flower. Then wby should noi
Is oreatures bring the choicest of flowers
ltb which to decorate His ehrtbly temples
i commemoration of that glad Easter morn.
Rev. J. W. Daniel's subject was od the res-rectlon,
taken from 8t. John, 20th chapter,
rst eighteen verses. A large aDd attentive
mgregatlon, including many visitors from
fferent parts of the county, were present
id listened with rapt attention to the Joyis
theme so naturally, graphically, and earsstly
set forth, proving beyond all doubt or
leculation that tbe body of our bles&ed Lord
id risen, as he said, and was not stolen away
r Roman soldiers.
A special song service of grand Easter muc
was prepared by tbe cbolrand rendered
ost charmingly. Miss Eva Klrby was comlmented
by being called from Spartanburg
