Our readers must pardon us when in
the exuberance of our spirits, after
several esteemed contemporaries have
said nice things : about us we over
step the bounds of maiden modesty and
transfer what they say to these columns.
We hnd occasion just now to make this
semi-apology, and at the same time con
fess to feeling blushes innumerable
mount our damaged cheek as we set
forth to quote what our good brother
McDiarmid,of the liumbertOn Robeson
ian says of us in his last issue. If we
may venture to hope to be pardoned yet
another time we will remark that he
says that "The Charlotte Observer
is certainly one of the best daily papers
that comes to our office. It is very ably
edited and well printed."
The returns are coming in from our
recent, work on the South and Air-Line
roads, and while we are at it we will go
on and quote from our partial friend of
the Abbeville Press ana ' Banner, who
has already in the past said more of us,
we fear, than we deserve : :
The Charlotte Observer, .North
Carolina's best daily, now comes to
Abbeville -on -the-same day that it is

inS to his many friends in North Caro-

institution1 over ; which he presides:
'The Arkansas Industrial University
was never m so prosperous a condition
as at the present time. Over three hun

and the number is constantly increasing.
under the able management or tne
president, Gen. Hill, the institution
seems to have acquired new energy with
corresponding power for good in the

will be asked for an appropriation for

Rev. Robert Lathan, a beautifully
Krinted volume of eighty-eight pages,

Enquirer office, entitled a "History of
Hopewell Church, together with .Bio
graphical Sketches of the Pastors."
This church, located in Chester county,
S C, is among the earliest founded in
the Southern section of the United
States, and its history is full of general
as well as local interest A glance at
the book convinces us that the author
has been at great pains to procure all
the facts connected with the struggles
of the pioneers of the church in the
Carolinas. ' while the stvle is graceful
and entertaining. The last half of the
volume is devoted to biographical
sketches of the four pastors, Bev. John

Warren lenniken and Rev. Robert

congregation in the order named. .
