B? REVIVAL ?LL"
BEGIN HERE SOON
UNDER AUSPICES OF ST.
ON LARGE SCALE
The Rev, Baxter McLendon Will
Bring Huge Tent.
Tho first announcement in regard
to tho great ru\$vul that ls being
planned for the near future by the of
ficers of the St. John's Methodist
church of this city, said thut the meet
ing will bc carried out on the biggest
scale that havo ever been urrangcd
In Anderson and that lt will last one
month. Rev. Bexter McLendon has
boen secured and he will come to An
derson and bring his huge tent, which
has a seating capacity of "2.Out).
Tho following letter from the St.
George Methodist church of Bennetts
vllle was received:
Three weeks ago Rev. Baxter Me
i.eildon, of Beiinet^viMr?, came- at our
invitation to St. George to conduct a
series of revival services under the
auspices of tho Methodist church. Thc
services were held under a spacious
tent owned by brother McLendon.
This tent had a rapacity for seating
2,000 persons and to the surprise and
gratification to overflowing with anx
ious worshippers. St. George had for
years been in a low spiritual condi
tion and there was a swiftly flowing
tide antagonistic to genuine religion.
From the ftrst service o ftho meeting
the evangellsts'e work began to count
and there were foregleams of a bright
er day for our own. Crowds Hocked
to the services, tho church was
thrilled with a new life, possibly six
teen hundred surrendered to Christ
and one hundred and forty-two joined
the different churches of the town and
community. There ls no doubt that
God usos this concencrated man in a
Prominently in all that he does is
the tact that B. F. McLendon is an
notated of God for tho work of an
evangelist. He has too, the courage
of hts convictions, hurling at sin the
denunciation of the Almighty In ex
plicit terms and with high courage
and a mighty persistence.
While Brother McLendon does not
claim to be. In the strict sense of th"
word, an educated man, and though
now and then he does violence to the
English grammar, still, in the main
his English ls good, and at timos ho
speaks it with a purity and an elo
quence that would do credit to a
college bred man. You ask, "Docs he
use vulgarity in his preaching? So
He ls as free from that as any evange
list I ever heard. He speaks plainly,
but there id no taint of vulgarity on
If you need a man who will lift your
community upon a higher plane of
spirituality, by all means get Bax
ter F. McLendon. He leaves me with
my lo vb and confidence.

Herbert Quick, editor of. Farm and
Fireside, the national farm paper
published at Springfield, 'Ohio, pub
lishes some good advjca .abp.ut in
vestments in the current Issue of that
publication. Following ls part of
what Mr. Quick has' to say:
"The safest protection against
losses from bad investments lies in
keeping in mind the fact timi, there
nre two elements In every investment
-interest and safety. Where the in
vestment ls perfectly safe the inter
est is low; that is, nothing is re
ceived by the investor except purk
in tc rest.
"Whore thc returns promised are
high they consist in two things
pure Interest and compensation for

among them arc possible lose of prin
cipal, possible delay in collection of
principal or interest, possible failure
of the business to livo and pay pro
"Securities bought and sold regu
larly on tho money marketa of the
world bear prices which buyers think
are fair when these things are con
" 'Schemes* are of a different .sort.
They have no price fixed in the mar
ket, and therefore tho investor has
no benefit derived fromjathe buying
and selling in tho world's markets.
"When he buys a government .bond,
a railway bond, a municipal bond, or
a public-utility bond, the market
price is the judgment of the Investors
of tho world as to its value. This
judgment of experts, backed by thc
experts' money, 1B worth a great deal
to the Investor.
"But the 'scheme' contract or bond
which offers big profits quickly
made has no price fixed by anion's
judgment. The buyer's, judgment ' ls
very often overcome by the ealjjk
man's talk. m?.
"The man who feels lncllnedj^to
part with his money on sun a
schemo ought to part with his money I
scheme ought to remember-that re

sent risk. If the returns promised
run up Into snch figures as 10, 20,
40, 80, or 100 rter cent, he should not
forget that the risk is very great, or

Mules Are Always ls Demand.
In the current Issue of Farm and
Fireside, the national foi m paper
published at Springfield, Ohio, Judge
W. R. Schooler, a successful stock
breeder and feeder in Southwestern
Missouri, writes an interesting arti
cle about tile mule. He shows the
real value of mules and the money
that there ls ito he made in them.
Judge Schooler has a thousand acre
farm and Is an expert on the breed
ing and care of mules. The following
brief extract taken from bis article
shows the value of mules:
"A good mule hould weight from
1.200 to 1,400 pounds, and mules of
this class will bring from 1400 to $600
a span. A great many of these ara
sold east along the Mississippi river,
while the smaller on ea weighing
around 1.000 pounds are shipped
South to be worked in the cotton
fields. One thing tn the mules favor
ls. that he will always bring ?uai he
is v"th. He ia like a hos In that
respect: there is always a market
waiting for him." '
RAISED FOR FIREMEN
FUND OF $100 GIVEN IN AP
PRECIATION OF GOOD
BANQUET OR PURSE
Boys Will bc Given Either a
Spread or the Money Divid
ed Among Them.
Over $100 In cash was raised by
ic"pular subscription by a special
committee consisting of Messrs. i
Charis Spearman, Ollie Burriss and
Porter A. Whaley for the benefit of
tin- lir<?men, who did sueh splendid
work at the big fire Tuesday night.
Tlie purpose of raising this money is
for either a banquet to be given the
Vrenient, or for a purse to be distri
buted among them.
This Idea originated Wednesday
morning wheu several business men
of the city came into thc rooms of
tho chamber of commerce and offer
ed a contribution of money for a
banquet to be given the local fire
department and the call men-. The
idea was considered an excellent ono,
and a special committee was appoint
ed to take charge of the matter.
The money required came in a very
short time. Almost every business
man of the city was more than ready
to do his part. Since the money lins
been raised lt ls now being consider
ed whether to have the banquet, as
proposed and invite the fire chiefs
of Greenville ^"?d Greenwood, or to
present tile money in the form of a
purse to tlie fire department to bo
divided equal?/ among the members.
A meeting wi'.: bo held soon and
this matter will be definitely decided.
