(Tn reply to "Can toe enter the promised land
heref" "The Kingdom of God is within you.")
Heaven is begun, if Love supremely reign
Within thy heart, and God's most Holy will
Doth every fibre of thy being fill.
Our Lord's command, "be perfect" were In vain
Might we not wisdom from above attain
As seeking this injunction to fulfil,
We learn to triumph over mortal ill,
While present, past and future are made plain.
'Tis thus God's kingdom dwells within the heart :
'Tis thus we reach the promised land below,
To learn that heaven and earth in harmony
Divine, of all creation are a part.
Thus too, we find that all things we shall know,
When, freed from error, truth doth make us free!

Ir. Ilersey Seventy .four Years' Young"
March 17, 1900.
Cicero says there are no days sweeter
than our birthdays, because the joy
that underlies them is the soul's intuition
of and longing for happiness, not only
during this brief life but also during the
unending life to which this leads. The
genial Autocrat of the Breakfast Table
used to love to speak of being so many
years young. These two thoughts of
the essential happiness and unimpaired
youthfulness of a, well ordered life found
a hearty expression in the celebration of
the birthday of Dr. Mersey at the Berk
shire last Saturday.
Not only did his fellow guests at the
Berkshire conspire in an expression of
their love for the Doctor, but all his
friends throughout the community
each year of his age and beyond these
were vases containing roses and smilax
which saluted him with their beauty and
fragrance. One large vase of Dowers
was received from .Judge and Mrs. Robin
son of Goldsboro. Hidden beneath the
mass of flowers lay a booklet which Dr.
Ilersey will probably cherish as among
the choice gifts of the day. It will be to
him a memo rub ilia of his friends in Pine
hurst, as it contained more than eighty
leaves bearing the names, in autograph,
of those who love and esteem him. In
most eases selections in quotations went
with the names, and now and then a
dainty sketch of some familiar bit of
Pinehurst nature, the long-needled pine,
pixy moss, a spray of laurel and so on.
In the evening Doctor and Mrs. Ilersey
received informally and the hours passed
delightfully in conversation and music,

A large number of our villagers gath
ered in the Village Hall last Monday and
passed a very pleasant evening with
whist and dancing. Whist occupied the
time from 8 to 9.30 and fifteen tables were
filled by the players. At the conclusion
of the games dancing was enjoyed, the
"insic being furnished by ilolly Inn
orchestra. During the evening refresh
ments consisting of fancy crackers, cake
and lemonade, were served. The affair
was in charge of a committee composed
of Messrs. F. II. MeAlpine, T. Barber, J.
W. McArdle and C. E. Kennedy, who

became willing co-conspirators in the
benevolent plot. For once at least St.
Patrick shared the honors of the day
here in Pinehurst with another.
It was decided to entrap the Doctor at
dinner, when the ilav was half gone, and
any suspicions on his part would be
allayed. Through Mr. Tufts' kindness
the Ilolly Inn orchestra played while
dinner was being served. As Doctor and
Mrs. Ilersey entered the dinning room to
the music of k4Hes a Jolly Good Fellow"
the guests enthusiastically greeted him,
rising and giving the Chautauqua salute.
Then Dr. Abercrombie briefly congratu
lated him in behalf of all his Pinehurst
friends. Though surprised, the Doctor
found a ready and effective antidote for
the dose that he was forced to take, and
very feelingly and wittily responded.
As he took his seat his eyes fell upon
a. profusion of flowers, as charmingly
arranged as if Flora herself had shaken
them from her bountiful lap. Disposed
in a semi-circle about his plate were
seventy-four carnation pinks one for
"the crowning glories of the feast of
life.' The music was by Miss Carpenter
and Miss Cummings.
k'Aul(l Lang Syne" and personal kind
wishes to the good physician brought the
d i v to a happy close.
The sequel to the above celebration
took place last Wednesday evening. The
Doctor and his estimable wife determined
to gather their legion of Pinehurst friends
about them once more, and issued invita
tions to a munical social to be held in the
Berkshire parlors, last Wednesday even
ing. The responses. were numerous, the
number being limited only by the room
available for the reception of their guests,
and the parlors were filled with a repre
sentative gathering of our villagers. In
addition to the guests at the Berkshire,
the Inn and the boarding houses and cot
tages sent large delegations, showing
that the popularity of Dr. and Mrs.
Ilersey is not confined to the limits of
the Berkshire, but embraces the whole
village as well.
The Ilolly Inn orchestra was in attend
ance and rendered exquisite music which
was fully appreciated by all present.
Miss H. E. Carpenter sang several solos
which were very happily chosen and
charmingly rendered, and called forth
a generous measure of applause.
At the conclusion of the musical pro
gram ice cream and cake were served,
after which a short time was spent In
pleasant social converse. The company
then repaired to the large dining hall
and enjoyed a season of dancing. The
party broke up at a late hour and the
guests returned to their homes well
pleased with the evening's entertainment.
Dr. Ilersey came here last season in
very poor physical condition but rapidly
regained his health and strength under
the influence of our grand healthful
climate. With returning strength his
interest in the health and happiness of
others increased, and long before the
season ended he had endeared himself to
his fellow guests by his successful efforts
in ministering to their bodily ills and
promoting pleasant social interests. The
return of the Doctor and his wife to
Pinehurst this season was hailed with
pleasure by their many friends here and
their popularity has steadily increased.
That they may live to spend many more
winters in our village is the wish of all.
Last Monday morning the boiler at the
lumber mill and crate factory of I. F.
Chandler, located near the trolley track
at Southern Pines, exploded and killed
one man and injured two others, one of
The cause of the explosion will never
be known for a certainty. A large
amount of steam was being used that
morning and the safety-valve popped off

steam, had over-weighted the safety
valve and thus caused the boiler to be
