H. C. TILLMAN IIBADS PYTHIANS
Grund Ijodge lukins an Activo Cam
paign Agninwt Illiteracy.
Greenwood, Muy 25.-South Caro
lina Pythians brushed aside old-time
customs hore to-day and launched a
vigorous campaign against illiteracy
and for activity in community af
fairs when the Grand Lodge grasped
a roal vision of Pythianism. George
C. Cabell, Supreme Vico Chancello?*,
brought a wonderful mossago to tho
Knights, and enthusiasm knew no
bounds following tho oratorical dis
play by the distinguished visitor and
members of the Grand Lodge.
Henry 0. Tillman, of Greenwood,
was elected Grand Chancellor, and
he started a demonstrtaion during
the discussion of educational affairs
when he exclaimed, "Lay on, Mc Db ff,
and damned bo ho who ll rsl cries,
' I lold ! {{Dough ! ' "
C. I). Brown, Grand Keeper of Re
cords and Seal, brought members of
ibo lodge to iholr foot amid a thun
dering roar when he read a telegram
from President Harding. The chief
of thc nation is an ardent Pythian,
and he encouraged the Carolinians
with cheering words.
Ills brief message was as follows:
"Please extend lo the Grand Do
main of South Carolina my expres
sion of good will and fraterna) inter
est. Warren G. Harding."
Tho Grand Lodge created a coin
mission on Pythian service, and moro
activity in community affairs will he
the slogan of the latest movement
in Pythian circles. The commission
will survey the Held and otter such j
suggestions as will promote the In
terests of the order and L li o welfare
of the communities.
Made lOloquont Appeals.
W. II. Morton, Past Grand Chan-;
cellor, and an Instructor at Converse)
College, stood before the Grand j
Lodge of Pythians and related a lew j
details of illiteracy so prevalent in I
South Carolina. Alva M. dunkin, of'
Columbia, also took tho Moor and :
made an eloquent appeal for Pyth- |
ians to arise to the occasion and
light the foe. He said South Caro
lina stood in an outrageous position
in educational affairs, and he de
clared that Bolshevism caine from
benighted classes.
Sitting In tho assombly was Goo.
Cabell, a brilliant typo of Southern
chivalry. Ile heard the statements
about ignorance In the State, and ho
arose to his feet and delivered ono j
of the ablest addresses ever heard
by a body of Pythians. He said the
ordor should blaze tho trail in the
eiTort to wipo out illiteracy. He lold
tho delegates to go to their homes
and stand for the church and tho
school, these being the community's
best assets. He said that every lodgo
should have committees to urge law
makers to do things and not talk all
day long. Everybody loves a doer,
the Supreme Vice Chancellor said-?
and "damn a good-for-nothing fellow
in a community," he shouted. Mr.
Cabell urged Pythians to bo politi
cians in the best sense of thc word
and make the most of it. Real poli
ticians are long on promises and are
short on action, he declared, and he
appealed for talk plus action.
Henry C. Tillman, who was then
Just a few minutes from the chief
position in the order, joined in tho
demonstration for better school facil
ities, and offered a resolution to the
effect that the Grund Chancellor ap
point a committee of three to attend
tho Spartanburg Educational Con
vention in .Inly, The resolution was
adopted amid enthusiasm, and W. H.
Morton, A. G. Rein bert and W. F.
Robertson were appointed to repre
sent the Pythians.

Carolina Pythians are watching
over little Harriet Causey, who was
seriously and painfully injured by
swallowing concentrated lye. Three
oporatlons have boen performed in
an effort to restore the power lo
swallow. The Knights are sparing
neither time nor expense to bring tho
Kill to a healthy condition, and favor
able reports encouraged tho Grand
Lodge to-day. The little sufferer is
a patient at the Pryor Hospital nt
Chester,
Grand Chancellor Tillman in a
brief inaugural address asked for
co-operation and best endeavors. Ile
ur god I ho Pythians to catch the vis
ion and grasp opportunities lo up
lift communities in social, educa
tional and religious affairs.
Supreme Vice Chancellor Cabell
bade the Grand Lodge an affection
ate farewell. He declared that his
visit to South Carolina had given him
inspiration. He said hr was wonder
fully surprised at lin- type of men
who composed the Grand Lodgo, and
that if spared he would again visit

TEXT.-Judaa alBO know the place
John 18:2.
Keeping good company ls v.ell, but
lt cannot guarantee that one ls good. ;
Judas is with the |
other eleven I
apostles, and with
Jesus too. He :
knows the Oar- j
den of Ucthsem- J
une ns a place
where Jesus oft- :
en visits. He has
been there with
him, nevertheless j
be ls a betrayor. !
Like the foolish
virgins in the par- ;
able, he has had
enough of the oil of tho Holy Spirit's
Influence on his soul to make him ac
cept our Lord's company In such a
pince, but lie will not accept of eternal
life as a gift. Outwardly he bas
Joined the Apostles'Band, but, Inward- ,
ly he is a thief. Good company, but
a thief's heart !
His choosing to "Join" before ho I
had "received" may have cost him his |
soul. If he had humbly insisted upon j
not Joining until he had accepted our
Lord Jesus Christ as the one who
would fulfill all sacrificial types for
sinners, then he might have ranked
with John or Paul.
Ho know the place. Those trees
could talk to him. Ho could gather
messages from the footprints and
paths there. Tho very air was elo
quent, to him. Oh. there are records
which do not Ht Into music boxes or
conform to machinery. They are
heard at most unexpected times. As
If started by unseen hands, lu the
dark of tho night, they compel us to
listen, .lust aa some who read this
can hardly help thinking of the path
up to the old schoolhouse, where, In
the winter revival, they sang, "Como
yo sinners poor and needy," or of tho
old kitchen In tho old farmhouse
whero family prayers were conducted
once a dny. How often the Spirit of j
God whlspors, "Forget not all his ben
efits." But Judas had a sinful heart
and would not yield that to Jesus the
Bin-bearer. The place was outside the
man, the heart of sin was close with- i
In. Croon over tho place, he might, |
but like a soldier on guard, he would
light Jesus away from that citadel of
the heart. .
And why should Judas be one of
the twelve? To be sure, he ls later j
substituted by Matthias, but why was j
he ever admitted? "I have chosen ;
you twelve and one of you ls a devil," j
are the words so startling. And that 1
one the treasurer I Yes, for when God '
ls manifested fighting sin, he asks for
no favors or quarter. He fights lt j
on Its own ground and out la the
open. Tho apostles are In the thick
of the centuries-old conflict with hu- j
men sin. So far as the record states i
there could not have been much money i
for Judas to handle anyway. But he
can be allowed to add and subtract
nod have first-hand Information,
where, if there had been any trick
?ry advised, ho would have known :
about lt.
t
Now this ls the mon who sells Jesus
for a few cents moro than five dollars. I
Yes, but this ls thc man who through- .
out tho wholo known record novor
states that ho finds any traco of docep- |
tlon or trickery on Jesus' patt. This j
"son of perdition" on thc Inside, with
first-hand Information, this "devil"
cannot find a daw or a fleck In all the
' structure of Jesus' conduct. He ob
jects to Mary anointing him. but re
member, he nowhere culls him
"Lord"
Do we not see that today men and
women, wayward and guilty, will any
that they do uot critlcizo Jesus? Illa
enemies admit, bj tho ten thousand,
that they "find no fault In him." Yet
they refuse bim their henrts. How
could Josus Christ be such a true
teacher, leader of men and oxnmple
If bis repeated declaration of hi?
Savior-ship wero falso? How can a
mon properly appreciate his teaching
and his wonder works and at the same
moment rejoct his shod blood? You
odmlre him, but you do not receive
him ; boware lest, for a price, you soil
bim.
There Is another "ploce" mentioned
lu tho nccount. Judas went to "his
own place." Ho had heard of that
place from Jesus himself. "To bo
cast Into hell" had doubtless rung In
his ears more than once. No garden
with olive trees thero. No Jesus to
teach ono thero. The salo Judas made
and that placo aro closely associated.
If he will hear him tench and even
endorse bis greatnoss, but yet hnve
the heart to sell him, that ono place
ls his destiny. Soul, do not reject tho
Lord J?sus aa Saviour today, lest, to
morrow tho heart that so rejects
proves to bo tho heart that sells, and
you enter that-"place." Like a garden I
whose trees and flowers all speak of I
blesslvg, so is his grace today, but, j
If you reject that, I would that you
might realize that you turn toward
Judas* place. Judas had, as lt were,
. deed in hand to that placo when he
was right In tho company of Jesus.
He had fully realized lt, doubtless the
very possession of lt would have been
to him like fire.
