About the funniest thing that wc have seen
In any paper for a long time was the Newe
and Courier's interviews with the visiting
brethren of the press, while in the olty seeing
the big show. Tbese Interviews, taken to
gether with some of tbe resolutions wblob
were adopted by tbe Press Association, were
distinguished more for their good humor and
their good intentions than for anything else,
Tbe "surprise" of the brethren at tbe excellence
of tbe show gave tbe best proof of tb<
wisdom of inviting them down to the city
that tbe soales mlgbt be removed from theli
eyes. Tbe various speeches of introduction ol
the different members were good. Without
tbese eulogistic or explanatory Introductions
A/tho oHIlrtril ftf fhlB fitflfft mlffht DOfiSl
bly have died unknown to fame and glory.
The resolutions In reference to the excel
lenceof the show was In good taste and was
Bat those resolutions which thanked different
people and different organizations lor
being civil to the gentlemen of the press ap
proaohed very near to the ludlcrons. It Is no
unusual thing for as oonrtly people as tho6e
of Charleston, to be polite and olvll to gentlemen
who come within their gates. If Roose<
velt and his Cabinet should visit Charleston
does anybody for a moment suppose that
they would assemble, and solemnly adopt
reaolatlons of thanks to the hotel people foi
being civil to them, and pnt in solemn
form their obligation to the Chief of polloe fo:
not allowing his polloemen to pot them in the
gnard house ? Would it not be ludicrous foi
Roosevelt to assemble his Cabinet to make
known that they were thankful for a fifty
cents ticket to the show to wblob their hostf
bad invited them ? If he bad done bo, an en
grossed oopy, without publication, would
have been sufficient, it occurs to us tbat the
city council, or the committee on guests oi
publicity might, with more propriety, have
have passed resolutions of satisfaction for the
presenoe of the receptive minds, which were
now enlightened, but which formerly held sc
poor an opinion of the great show.
Evldenoe of the good feeling which prevail
ed was the most appropriate and most plea*
lng feature of the affair, although no notice
was taken of those who offered drinks and
cigars to the members of the press.
- We have been accustomed to seeing fault
finding, and In the press so muoh bltternesE
of expressson toward each other, and toward*
anybody else who aspired to honorable things
that we oould hardly believe oar eyes as w<
read the Interviews. Harmony and good feel
log prevailed throughout, with never a word
to wound anybody's feelings. As a matter o
fact, we would love to eee a continuance o
these friendly or fraternal feelings among th<
Many of the names of those who attended
were strangers to ua In person. 8ome of tbeli
newspapers are received at this office, bu
others are not. In running over the namei
we were Impressed with the fact that tb<
membership of the Association has changed
very mnch of late years. Very few names o
the old members were seen In the list. Ai
, one time the Press and Banner felt that tb<
meeting of the Press Association was the
great occasion of the year, but of late years w<
have not met with the brethren In thes<
meetings wblefa are always pleasant and
Tbe Florida Editor's Card.
Some one has sent to this office a marked
oopy of The State, containing the oard of Mr
J. E. Smith, the Montlcello, Florida, editor
who has bad some agents in Abbeville doing
business for him. As we understand, foui
ciuue ui M tnuu, wcic ujuuc u>i mi uiui .?Abbeville.
Mlu Lon Va?s, a most excellent young
lady or this city, said yesterday tbat sbc
made op a club for Mr. Smith's paper lc
August. About tbe fourth of September, she
sent him 925 and twenty-five names of sub
scribera for his papers, and undertook then tc
enter upon the proffered agency at $20 e
month. 8he wrote letters during the month
of September to tbe number of 165.
8he says tbat she has repeatedly made
effort to get tbe promised premium, she be'
lng allowed choice betweeo a watch and a
bicycle, cbose to take tbe watch, which she
' bad not received at noon yesterday.
She further says that for tbe month'B work
during September. In sending letters or writ_
. log for Mr. Smith sbe has received not one
Mr. George Whltesays that he sent a club
of 25 subscriber and ?23. He received hie
premium. He worked some, but afterward
quit. He could get nothing for what he did
as agent, though be did get the premium 101
There were, we believe, two other clubs
made up at Abbeville.
As Mr. Smith protests his honesty and the
legitimacy of hie business, as a matter ol
Justice to their employer, bis agents hereabout
should testify as to their satisfaction
with bis method of doing business.
This newspaper does not characterize Mr.
Smith's way of doing business. We have
only attempted to show the facts connected
with bis newspaper agency in this section.
We have no doubt that Mr. Smith has a good
reputation at home, but *e believe that bis
sobeme for hiring agents at $20 a month Is not
on business principles. If he is very rlcb
and desires to distribute benefactions be can,
bowever, be of good service to many deserving
people hereabout, and elsewhere.
It has been sa!d on the streets that Mr
8mlth is a son of Bill Arp. If this is true, he
comes of good stock. He was born right.
Ononfil With I'ruwpr.
The Big Indian Show In Charleston wae
formally opened with prayer on the first o
the month. It was not until about the flf
teenth of the month, that the horseraclng
division of that big show was opened. 81x
dispensaries have also been opened. Tbc
Idea of opening shows, horse races, and dispensaries
with prayer seems to be an Innovation.
It was enoagh to jar the average oltlzeo
when the Legislature opened Itself dally by
prayer. . Bat now the good work Is extending.
It seems hardly fair that the Charleston
shows, the Charleston races and the Charleston
dispensaries should be opened with prayer
when we can't have a little cock-fight at
Donalds, or Calhoun's Falls, without even
benefit of clergy, unless somebody protests
against the sport. As this may be the last
opportunity that some of the members of the
Legislature may have, It might be well for
tbem to offer a bill to authorize the Governor
to appoint dispensary unapiains in toe diner
ent counties, whose doty It shall be to attend
any cock-fight that may take place In theli
own bailiwick. (
Greater Than BleL.aarln.
The Barnwell People has discovered three
men In this State who are greater than Mc
Lanrln, namely: Gen. K. R. Hemphill, Hon
W. H. Parker and Judge W. C. Benet. As w<
claim Judge Benet to be an Abbeville man, II
woald Beem that the men of this olty rank
high. The four men named are great Indeed
Messrs. Parker and Benet, we believe, favoi
the principles for whlgh McLaurln stand*
while Oen Hemphill takes a different view o
the matter, and supports Tillman.

I Death of Mrs. O. Y. Bonner.
' A. R. Presbyterian.
Mrs. O. Y. Bonner died Sabbath morning at
two o'clock at the home of her father Dr. J.
D Neel, near Troy.
She 'had not been quite so well all the
week. Not until Friday did Bhe slop coming
down stairs from her room. Saturday mornI
log she seemed better and brighter than for
some weeks. She asked for alt the notices
about Mrs. Hunter and for a book given by a
friend, and spent the morning reading and
talking to her sisters. She was not eo well in
tbe afternoon and lay down about four o'clock
I suffering greatly with shortness of breath.
8be tola tbe family tbat she bad to sutler
many days yet. Later In tbe afternoon she
, asked tbat her husband be told that she was
, not so well, and also tbat be be told to remain
and preacb on Sabbath and come down
r on Monday. Sbe grew worse and at two
i o'olock passed away. Mr. Bonner was apprehensive
and left Due West Sabbatb morning
early and at eleven o'olock near Cedar Sprlug

Sabbatb morning a message, sent tbe night
' before about one o'olock, said she was dying,
and It was not known here that she was dead

ABOUT THE OLD BOY.
Prevalent Notions Are Generally at
The following Bible study by Rev.
J. B. Mack, of Fort Mill and published
in the Charlotte Observer recently, is
What is the greatest hindrance to
the triumph of Christianity ?
Tf ia nr>f ihu horrnnma llftf t.hfi
dance; nor the gambling saloon; nor
any of those lesser evils which some I
saintly souls delight to denounce.
It is the neglect of the Bible, the
failure to regard the Word of God as
the only sword of the Holy Spirit, the
adulteration of Scripture truths with
the notions of men. Both the church
and the clergy are prone to teach the
traditions of the tradition* of the elders,
or the relics of Paganism and
Popery, or the half trtfths of their own
denominations, as eternal verities,
and as the voice of God.
As an example of such erroneous
and injurious teachings, nee the common
idea of pulpit aud pew in regard
to Sal an.
If you ask, "Where is Satan's home
and what is his personal appeaiauce?"
at least nine out of ten will reply,"'His
home is in hell, and he is dark and repulsive
in his personal appearance."
Yet the Bible teaches us that both of
1 these answers are untrue :
1. Hell is not the home of Satan.
Yea more; it never bas been ; and the
Bible asserts that more than one thousand
veur? must pass by before Saton's
feet cau cross the threshold of bell.
To deny this is to deny the testimony
of the Holy Ghost as re-peatedly given
in God's word.
Six timed since Adam's day, in the
Old Testament |is Satan seen. Where
is he found, and in whose comany ?
In the third chapter of Genesis he is
seen in Eden, the garden of God;and
in company with Eve, a pure and holy
In the xxii chapter of I Kings he is
seen in heaven, iu compaoy with angels,
and is permitted, by the Lord to
descend to earth on. a message of deceit.
In the xxi chapter of 1 Chronicles
he is seen in the holy city of Jerusalem,
and in company with David, the
king's representative of God on earth.
In the first aud second chapters of
Job be is twice seen in heaven, and
both times with the holy angels, aud
also conversing with God.
In the third chapter of Zachariah he
is again seen in the presence of Jehovah,
and there to resist that One who
is the priestly representative of God
Not one iota of the Old Testament
has the slightest intimation that Sa
* i ;
can uas yei ever ueeu iu iuc uciguumhood
of Hell. Precisely the opposite is
true, for he Is always seen In heaven or
or on the earth.
Does the New Testament give the
slightest hint that Satan has as yet
ever been even one moment in hell?
In the third chapter of Matthew he
is seen with Jesus Christ in three places
: in the wilderness, on a mountain
and on a temple in Jerusalem. Next
he is seen near Christ and with Peter,
the leader of the agostles. Next he is
near, or in the room where Christ and
his diciples are celebrating the Passover,
and he is dealing with judas,
the treasurer and only official of the
chosen twelve. Next he is seen in the
great revival, where Auanias was
prominent. Then time and again was
he with Paul, so that in 1 Thessalonians
ii, 18, it is writteu, "Wherefore
we would have come unto you, even I, ,
Paul, once and- again ; but Satan hindered
us." . 1
Neither in the Old Testament, nor
in the New Testam ent is there one jot
or tittle of evidence to prove that Sa- ,
tan has as yet even seen a single
gleam of the lurid fires of hell, or even ,
un-ioHnno nartinlp nf thft fimnkfi there
of. To say that hell has been, or is
now, his home, is to discount and
deny the testimony of the Holy Ghost.
2. How does Satan appear? Is it
with a human lace and dark face,
wreathed with sardonic grins? Jsit
with scale-like flesh, with oat-like
wings, with sharp horns and cloven
feet and forked tail? Such is his appearance
as constantly told in prose
and poetry and picture. Our children
are shown such pictures jn the nursery,
and our youth read them in the thrilling
words of Dante, Milton and John
Buuyan, Being thus trained up in
the way they should not go, when
they are old they do not depart from
But how differently does God's Word
speak. The Holy Ghost, through Paul,
testifies that he appears as "an angel of
light;" and by Ezekiel that he is "a
perfect beauty." Hb is called "the
anointed cherub"?not an ordinary
angel, but one exalted above his-fellows,
being anointed like kings and
priests. His moral character is hideous
for he is a liar and murderer; but
his mental Dower is immense, and his |
personal appearance attractive and
'ITius the ideaa current among us
concerning Satan came not from tbe
Bible. They came originally from
Paganism which prevailed in Babylon,
the city built by Nimrod, the son of
Cush, and the grandson of Ham. As
he seems to have journeyed eastward
to reach Babylon, lie may have carried
this idea of a "black devil" (this zernebogus"
as he was called), with him
Will have a f i
3,1 Banjoes, i
?es before buying elsei
from Africa. At any rate the dark
hue of the Cushite is on it, and the fetid
odor of the Negro is in it.
Let us accept the testimony of the Bible
on this subject, and realize who
Satan is; whence he came; what is his
mission ; where he dwells and whither
he will at last go. Then wil) we begin
clearly to behold the glory of his great
conqueror and counterpart, Jesus Christ
For as the shadows iu a picture bring
out more clearly and fully the lights
'hereof, and thus render that picture
more perfect; so the real character, history
and doom of Satan will reveal
morecleaily and fully the divine radiance
of our King and prove the infininite
and eternal greatness of his salvation.

Take six to ten onions, according to

spider over a hot fire; then add about
the same quantity of rye meal and vinegar
enough to make a thick paste.
In the meanwhile stir thoroughly, letting
it simmer five or ten minutes.
Then put in a cotton bag large enough
to cover the lungs and apply to the
chest as hot as the patient can bear.
When this gets cool apply another,
