but corn to be seen on both sides, and

Thc Sunday School Convention. I \
Friday morning of last week *
the first session of the Baptist Sun- I
day school convention of the Edge- '
field Association convened in the 1
Edgefield Baptist church. About I
50 delegates were, enrolled from the 1
various Sunday schools. 1
Parksville furnished the Pres- :
?dent, secretary, and wit of the
convention, L. V. Dorn, II. W. Do
bey, and J. C. Morgan. The first
i morning and afternoon session was
taken up with tiie discussion of
queries selected by the committee
on arrangement of programqj^.
The first speech on this programme
was made by A. S. Tompkins on
"what are the qualifications nec
esi-ary for otlicers of a Sunday
school, and how ascertained."
This query was treated, as Bro.
ij lu lock said, "in a very exhaus
tive manner," that is, he said "in
reference <o points." A number
of queries for discussion were
handed in by brethren present,
nearly all of which were the means
of drawing from delegates soiid
information, and interesting and
instructive talks. Bro. Pinekney
Blalock added a great deal to the
music of the choir by his cornet,
which he manipulates with much
Friday evening Rev. J. L. Ouzta
preached on? of his inimitable
sermons. The text was "And I.

Saturday was also spent, in the
dis ussion of topics, which were
helpful to Sunday-school workers.
Among the speakers were Hon. W.
J. Talbert, Rev. J. P. Mealing, Rev.
J, L. Ouzts Rev. John Lake, Rev.
L. R. Gwaltney,J. C. Morgan, etc.
Rev. J. P. Mealing was appointed
to deliver Lhe sermon, for Saturday
evening, but on account of the
weather, there was no service, much
to the regret of that portion of our
town who attended the convention,
Sunday morning was the time
appointed for the Sunday School
Muss Meeting, after which services
the regular morning sermon was
preached by Rev. J. L. Ouzts. The
I.ouse was crowded on this occasion
and >h" people were much edified
ami d 'lighted hythe unusually elo
quent discourse which they heard.
We hop?.1 that Edgofield will hear
many more of Bro. Ouzts's sermons.

MR. EDITOR: Owing to the mo

ng ali subjects o'er and o'er again,
! have concluded to tnmgressthe

Would that all men could laugh
tow and then, and when ? sa}' all
nen 1 do not mean man as in con
rad ist i notion to woman, but both.
Most men are so burdened with
he cares of life, and so heartsick,
it th? demolition of splendid "Air
[Just 1 ..s" which their own fertile
imaginations alone could erect that
[bey scarcely ever lind time for a
good hearty laugh. Their moments
if genuine enjoyment on earth are
few. As for me, 1 shall iiHver hes
itate to do a (hing that will tend
to produce smiles upon the human
face rather than tears. I would
feel that I bad lived a useful and
noble life, if, when overtaken by
gray hairs, i could glance back
ward and in my mind's eye see
multitudes laughing and enjoying
a. few moments -even on this lug
ged pathway-over something I

Dry since old age looks backwards
ivhile youth looks forwards. Says
Mr. Davis in his great. Psychology :
'Love is a complex feeling con
sisting of three elements-desire,
emotion, and sentiment." Then
ie goes on and explains that "sen
: i ment is the rational element in
his noble feeling which subdued
Antony and inspired Shakepeare."
Washington Irving realized what
:he word love meant when he said :
'My observations of human na
ture have convinced me that how
ever the surface of the character
may be chilled and frozen by the
:ares of the world or cultivated
into mere smiles by the arts of SO
?ien-, still there are dorroant fires
lurking.io the depths of the cold
est bosom, which, when once en
; in died, become impetuous, and
ire sometimes desolating in their
?fleets." They seemed to have
their desolating effect upon Ir
king himself for the young lady of
lis choice died just before the time
for the consummation of their be
troth ment, and Irving wandered
aver 1 he world a celibate the re
mainder of his life. It is said
that he visi:ed the shrine of her
interment when he was an old
man and completely broke down
under a ilood of tears.
In this age of machination, Ido
not believe we ever have many
cases of true love. Especially is
this the case in states where di
vorces can be secured. In this
state where a man is expected to
live with his wife all his life, and
she with him, they seem tobe a
little more particular, but even
here the most of our love is policy
love. If a young man wants to
have a good time with the girls and
get married easy, he must turn out
to be a "Jim Dandv Dude." A
young man who works on the farm
with sunburnt hands is not in the
liglic except when a war conies on.
As a rule young women are poor
judges of true manhood, and they
often wake up to this truth after
their destiny is fixed. They see
only the surface when they should
probe to the heart and find out the
characteristics of a man.
That love of which poets write
and minstrels sing seems tobe a
lost faculty, if ] may PO term it,
in this age. Science seems tobe
taking the place of poetry and co
quetry the place of true ;ove. It
is seldom that ont; ever hears a
love song any more, but in its
stead you hear the complicated
medley which no one but a fine
musician can enjoy. The art of
human ingenuity may flourish for
awhile, but if art conflicts with
nature the art must give way, for
the hand that formed the human
personality can never be surpassed.
Ves, the poet's song of love will
live forever, because it is the out
pouring of human passion. Sci
ence may cause the mind to lose
its original simplicity, but science
can never efface from the human
soul its power to Jove. This power
to love is the soul's greatest pre
rogative. The bliss of heaven con
sists ?li the free exercise of this
sentiment of the soul.
Since I have been old enough lo
know anything of this question, 1
have taken an interest in tho con

love. Ayouth in love must always

been niv observation. I have, a
few times in my life, boen made
the confident of those afflicted
with that malady of the soul, and
I find that no greater opportunity
can he afforded to study human
nature in all of its aspects.
Finally, this word love may be
abused and laughed at, but, if it
held a more honorable place in the
hearts of men and women, peace
and happiness would linger about
the firesides of our homes, children

CUTTING DOWN A BEE-TREE
A Bloody Fight Result?.
To (he Adnertitter :
Mr. Willie Yarborough and John
nie Coleman decided a few days
ago that this community was too
quiet, so thinking it necessary to
revive it they had a bee tree, rob
bing. Thev went down on the
cre'rk and selected one of the lar
gest trees that, could be found in
the swamp, measuring3 feet in di
ameter. Tiny then went around
and invited all the neighbors both
young and old, to assist them iii
cutting the tree, and in getting
Willie and Johnnie went up to
Mr. John B. Duffie's and asked
him to bring some bread, and when
night came on, it was fun to see
Mr. Duffie walk up with a piece of
bakers bread under each arm and
a bee bonnet on. For fear of not
having enough bread Mr. Duffie
brought a 25 lb. sack of Hour and
plenty of cooking utensils, and to
cap the climax he also brought a
negro woman Lo do the cooking.
As the tree wa* on Mr. H. For
rest's place, he received a written
invitation to bring agall?n bucket]
to get som?i honey for his wife, but
being a little greedy, he brought a
five gallon can, with about 25 bis
cuits and 2 lbs. of butter to eat
the honey with.
Mr. Rube McCarty, the great
trader of this section, being late,
had to run his mules very fast to
get there in time. Considering the
fact that Mr. McCarty was a shrewd
trader John and Willie coaxed him
to climb the tree-and stop the hole,
by giving him a goct. While in
the top of the tree, a limb broke
and he fell to the ground a dis
tance of 53 feet 6? inches. So you
see what a goat can do for Rube.
Rube also brought three dozen eggs
to trade for honey.
Mr. Andrew Coleman and Tom
Havird brought a bee gum apiece
to get the bees, as they both want
ted them. They fell om about it
nud it ended in a bloody
Tho father of Willie, Mr. Frank
Yarborough, being very tired, fell
asleep and a limb fell on him and
injured him seriously. When the
tree fell, nothing could be seen of
Willie and John. They ran off
shooting pistols and linging bells.
These boys were pursued by the
mob all night, but they were too
glib on the heels to be caught.
