? Hon. Ai D. Dantzler, one of on
leading farmers and at one time th
largest negro landowner in Orang
burg cou: ,tv, was in the city a. feW.
days ago aili reported a "most thrill
ing expcjfri?ic? which he and hi
son, Dr. Lemuel, had with his stoel
bull. Tjhe Bull, for some cause?
possibly best known to bullologyJ
suddenly became enraged and withjn
out notice undertook to put Mr?
Dantzler o*ut of commission. How
well the bull succeeded will be told;
further . ott. However, you'll re?'
member Mr. A. D. Dantzler as hav*
ing several times rah for Congress,
from the seventh Congressional
District and was defeated as manjfil
times as \\e ran, but not until af te?|
he had made.his contests. Now, iii'
this bull contest- Mr. . Dantzle?
seemed to have been wholly unpre-5
pared and as a result soon found?
himself on the ground, haying beet
knocked down by the infuriate*
animal, which proceeded to paw ant
gore Mr. Dantzler, whoj-was s?mph
acting in se?frdefens?, which con
sisted in lyuig^down, ; kicking arti
calling,for l^ip and ^umpftjg ^
from this you will see that Mr.
Dantzler was not the aggressor, but
was simply acting in self-defense,
because he did jump the fence,
leaving the situation with his son,
Dr. Lemuel, who has had no experi
ence in congressional contests and
eery little in fighting an enraged
bull. Thus Dr. Lemuel soon found
himself on the ground with the bull
in charge, having no respect what
ever for pharmaceutical ability.
The doctor is now compelled to call
upon his rescued father to return
Lhe kindness and the same is grant
ed, whereby father and son are
masters of the situation and except
for a few scratches and lacerated
:lothes they are Dantzlers just thc
same. Now, Esquire Moorer has
lerctoforc had chrage of Mr.
Dantzler's congressional contests,
md whether he has been consulted
ar rptained in this case is among
ny unknown quantities. However,
iftcr thc fight Mr. Dantzler held a
;hort consultation with his son, who
s a recent graduate of Meharry
Medical College, as. to what dispo
sition should bc made of "fighting
mil." Dr. Dantzler, who seems to
)e well versed in modern pharmacy,
described a dose.o? hot lead, but
o this the father disagreed, and
vith a more economic view fo* a
inal solution suggested that u? .

THE THEOLOGICAL SCHOOL
AT ALLEN UNIVERSITY.
The commencement program of
the Theological school at Allem I
University was an unique dem
onstration of the class of work
being done by the professors in
the department. The graduation
oration of Rev. Mercer L. Ram
sey, of Greenwood, was the es
sence of oratory, elocution, and
logic. Ths.t he held his audience
spell-bound on commencement
day is well said. He deserves
the degree|of B.D. which was con
ferred upon him. No department
in Allen is doing more excellent
work and reaches a greaten need
in the very life of the race and
church than the theoi'" ?rical
bert has had the deanship of Al
len University and his adminis
tration is one of constructive
work, Some able young men are
in the field representing the work
done in the department. Dr.
Rembert is assisted in this good
work by Prof. T. B. Nelson, who
has the chair of Hebrew and Di
dactic Theology. Bob Nelson is
a real good scholar, quiet and un
The support of the theological
department is growing. One
thousand dollars is given annual
