ess those versed in Presbyterianism
know without being told what the day
was. The leader was Mrs. R. D.
INance of Cross Hill, arrived early as
all regulated leaders should, being on
hapd to greet delegates and guests
who came from Cross 11111, Rocky
Springs, Thornwell, Laurens, Clinton,
Owings, New Harmony and Sandy
A clear sky plus the attractive
highways made it possible foi a good
ly number to respond to Old Field's
invitation. The nlargest number I be
lieve it was agreed, since the Insti
tute was organized.
At. the opening hour, 10 A. M., the
churc-1 was Comfortably filled ready to
hear the welcoming address by Dr.
Kennedy (A. It. 1.), who extended
same in iaie of town, church and
i)cople. ills remiarks were well clo.,
en and aItly put.
Fortunate indeed was the Institute
in having as itis guest and one of its
speakers Miss McCain, of China who
delightedl her hearers with a talk that
came fron the heart of a laborer In
the vineyard to those who by their
lrayers and gifts could make China's
harvest larger and quicker. .Miss
McCain's curlos were of intense in
terest but took second place to her
charming personality. No one coula
see her 'without being impressed with
the God love and sunshine in her
heart. Ilor talk alone would have
made it worth while being "among
those present". But Old Field always
gives full and running-over measure.
Just 'before the noon hour, Dr. ilk
iW. Richardson, also of China, gave a
masterly address, showing that coun
try's needs and hopes not only rested
heavy on his heart but were in reach
of an early Christianity if missionary
and churches at home stood shoulder
to shoulder for Christ. After living
fourteen or more years among this

of China's unrest and of the sureness

IMrs. Geo. Wright was to bring a
message from Montreat at the after
noon session, but owing to ilIness,
sent Aliss Irby to take her place. Mrs.
Wright might have done a well but
no better than her substitute, who
gave her impression of Montreat, an
impress be it said that featured
rest, recreation and uplift.
The devotional hour just before
closing was Jn ipost capable hands.
Mrs. Ross Lynn of Thornwell, gave a
wlVl -prepare'd talk adding interest
thereto by pressing some of heri hear'
ers into ser'vice.
'Deing election year, the nominating
committee nominated as follows:
'Leaderi, Mrs. Oscar llunter; Assistant
Loader, Mrs. Geo. 31. Wright; Secre
tary and Treasurer, Miss Lizzie Craig.
Tlhe retiring leader, Mrs. Nanice,
leaves the affali's of the Institute in

As no0 invItation was received for
