Under the above caption tho News,
of Groouvlllo, presents a very inter
esting article concerning James Law
rence Alexander, who is a native of
Oconee, and who is pleasantly known
by many of our people. Mr. Alexan
der was horn In the upper portion of
Oconee, but has resided lu other sec
lions of tho South for many yoars,
luiving gone tb Greenville a few years
ago to make his permanent homo.
The News article follows:
J. Ii. Alexander.
Walhalla and Oconee county wore
too small for James Lawrence Alex
ander, who was boru there April 29,
1SC9, and since that time he has
conducted hotels In'some of. tho larg
est and livest cities, both North and
South, making hundreds of friends
and forming an acquaintance among
traveling men aud tourists which
virtually belis the globe.
Mr. Alexander was born on a farm
in Oconee county, and his love of
people - probably stronger among
rural folk than their city-dwelling
brothers-has grown Instead of di
minished with the passing of tho
years. After attending the various
schools about his home, young Alex
ander was sent to Judson College at
Henderson ville, hut completed his
collegiate courso at Adger College,
which then was a nourishing insti
tution at Walhalla.
In tlie spring of ? S S 7, after finish
ing school, young Alexander went to
Asheville and was employed in tho
steward's department of tho Battery
Park Hotel, which became one of tho
best known resorts of Dixieland.
While he* left there to engage in tho
hotel business for himself, ho return
ed on several occasions, and in all
was connected with this hotel for a
period of 22 years. Mr. Alexander's
connection with the hotel dates back
before the institution was opened for
visitors, as lt was scarcely completed
when ho first began working there.
He also operated tho Toxaway Hotel
at the famous Lako Toxaway In
Wertern North Carolina. During that
time tho fame of Lako Toxaway and
its hotels spread far and wide, anil
visitors came there from all parts
of the United States. In 1907 Mr.
Alexander left Toxaway to return to
Asheville, where he leased the Bat
tery Park Hotel a's an .nll-the-year
While operating tho Battery Park
Hotel Mr. Alexander entertained Jo
sephus Daniels, former secretary of
the Navy, and William Jennings
Bryan, tho famous .Nebraska orator,
The occasion was a game dinner, thc
various articles being collected very
largely from the lulls and mountains
ol' Western North Carolina.The game
features of tho dinner consisted ol
oysters, boiled venison, quail or
toast, wild turkey and black bear
The black bears wore captured on
Balsam mountain and were consid
ered to be ono of the greatest deli
cacies on tho menu. Tho wild tur
keys from Western North Caroline
also won a place In tho hearts ol
those privileged to partake of th ll
rare dish, and thc distinguished vis
?tors and others present never forgo
tiio bounteous game repast, gatherec
largely from the hills about Ashe
Previous to the entrance of Amer
ica into tho World War, a struggh
in which several of his sons respond
ed to tho call for men. Mr. Alexan
der conducted" the Washington Hote
In St. Louis. For a time after leav
ing St. Louis he was in Virginia
coming to Greenville in 1919 to con
duct Hie Ottarny Hotel.
In December of last year, who
tho South Carolina Hotel Keekers
Association was reorganized, Mr. A
exander was chosen president. H
had previously served as presider
pf the Asheville Hotel Keepers, Ai
sociation, a position which fitted hil
for the honor bestowed by tho Soul
Carolina hotel men.
During his residence in North Cai
ollna ho was a member of the sta
of Locke Craig, then Governor of tb
Old North Stale. Boing a colonel o
Governor Craig's staff ho acquired
t'tlo by which many traveling mc
and others know him to-day.
Mr. Alexander was married Jiu
1S, 1894, to Miss Florence Mason, <
Brooklyn, N. Y., and they have s
children. When tho United Stat
was in tho war with Germany, i
many of their sons as were o
enough to don tho uniforms of kita
responded to tho call.
Mr. Alexander ls a member of tl
Baptist church, tho Knights of P
thins, tho Elks, and has started <
the road to Masonry.

TUE REID. SIMMONS WEDDING.
Toronto of Ilrlde Well Known In Onr
County and State.
The following item, clipped from
tho Bessemer, Ala., correspondence
of tho Birmingham Age-Herald, will
foo of interest to many in Oconeo and
Smith Carolina. The bride's parents
are former Oconeo pooplo, who have
a host of friends in our county:
The wedding of Miss Carolyn Reid,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Hold,
and Carl Simmons was beautifully
solemnized Wednesday night at 8.30
o'clock at the homo of tho brido on
Arlington avenue, Bessemer.
Tho interior of tho home for the
occasion was adorned with luxur
iant ferns and with a profusion of
yellow daisies and with the shasta
daisies, the pretty color motif of yel
low and white being carried out in
the decorations, refreshments and
other details of the wedding.
Preceding the ceremony Mrs. Ma
con Williams sang "Tho Sunshine of
Your Smile." To the strains of Men
delssohn's Wedding March, played by j
Mrs. Owen Williams, the couple en-j
tered the living room, where, before i
an improvised altnr of ferns and
flowers, the impressive ring core-1
mony was performed by Dr. J .A. !
Bryan, of Birmingham, a life-long,
friend of tho family.
Tho young b?ido, who is one of
Bessemer's sweetest young girls, was
never moro beautiful than on tho oe-'
OL'sion of her wedding. She was j
gowned in a blue crepe faille, em- ?
broldered in beads, with which she
wore a black picture hat and carrlod
a bride's bouquet of pink Killarney
roses and valley lilies.
Following the ceremony an infor
mal reception was held, the guests
including relatives and close friends ;
of tho families. Punch was served
to tho guests by Miss Gage Morton
and Miss Fannie Morton from a table j
banked with yellow daisies and as-j
paragus ferns. Ices and cakes andi
mints were served in the dining '
room, where quantities of yellow and
white daisies and ferns afforded at
tractive decorations, the table bear
ing for a center-piece a silver basket
filled with gol tien blossoms. Tho ;
mints and ices were in yellow and |
the cakes beautifully embossed in
tho colors of the wedding. Serving1
in the dining room were a bevy of
young women, including Mrs. J. B,

Tho Old Man Has Gotten There.
(Anderson Mail, 21st.(
Tho old gray haired veteran, G.
W. Sherman, who came through An
derson on his way to Richmond,
walking from his home in Goggins
villo, Ga., arrived there on Sunday,
three days before tho reunion was
to begin. He said that ho had calcu
lated that lt would take him longer
this time than it did before, and ho
had given himself thirty days to
make it in, but he made it in a little
less, and had three days to rest in.
Mr. Sheramn is S3 years old, has
long, white hair that hangs down to
his shoulders, but walks with a brisk
and spry step, and would not allow
any ono to pick him up in an auto
mobile, as ho said that he wanted to
walk every foot of the way.

The great George Whitefield was i
once asked why ho preached so often j
on tho necessity'
of the now birth.;
IBs short nnd sutil-1
clent reply was,';
"Boca uso you;
must bo born!
again." The text!
that at the very!
threshold of the j
new life of faith
In christ, the
soul stands in
need of a distinct
Ufo culled a new
birth. We enter this life by birth;
our entrance upon eternal lifo must
be precoded also by a birth. Sin has
effaced In man both the moral and
Bplrltuul Imago of God. The now birth]
restores both. This ls the uniform
testimony of Scripture. The host that!
eau be said of tho old nature, declared!
to be dead in trespasses and sin (Eph.i
2:1), ls that lt retained, in spite of tho*
fall, a eupaclty to receive new life,
from God and respond to Elis known
Tho parable of tho sower aptly il-!
lustr?tes this. Therein four kinds ofl
soil ure represented. Bi three cases
tho soil ls Inhospitable. In ono case
only is the sall good. But even here lt
does not germinate tho seed nor create
Ufo within lt. It only receives lt, for
which lt has tho capacity and fur
nishes a hospitable environment In
which lt may develop and grow. The
Interpretation of the parable as gen
erally given treats of the soil as the
human heurt, and of tho seed as the
Word ol' God. It ls thereforo the plant
ing of tho Living Word In the heart,
(which has tho capacity to receive lt
and furnish a hospitable environment
for Its development) that results In
the reproduction of tho moral and
spiritual Image of God. This recep
tion of the Living Word Into a heart
ls d?duite, and moro or less clearly,
marked In the oxperlonco of tho Indi
vidual, being accompanied often by as
positivo a crisis as whoa a child bi
born Into tho world
In Ills tulle with Nicodemus (John
8:5), Christ gives us tho one lnstru
mont, the Living Word, and the one
active agent, the Holy Spirit, In effect
lng the wonderful transformation
culled the now hirth. These divino
elements of conversion nix' expressed
in other connections, ns for Instance,
'.That Ho might sanctify nnd cleanse
lt with tho washing of water by tho
Word" (Eph. 5:20); "Peing born not I
of corruptible seed, but of Incorrupt
ible, by the Word of God, which liveth
and abldcth forever" (I Peter 1:23);
and "According to His mercy Ho,
saved us, by the wnshlng of regener
ation and the renewing of the Holy
Ghost" (Titus 3:5).
Whenever, therefore, tho Spirit ls
mentioned In connection with water |
lt signifies the Spirit of God operating
In and through the Word. To be born,
therefore, of water and of Spirit, ls
tho New Testament way of saying
that tho Divine Spirit ls the activo
agent, and the Divine Word ls the ef
fective Instrument In the new birth of
of the soul. "It ls tho Spirit that
qulckeneth ; tho flesh proflteth noth
ing; the words I speak unto you they
aro spirit, and they aro lifo" (John
"Hero then from hendqunrters we
have a statement that Ills Words aro
very spirit and life; that Ills Word
and Spirit aro Instrument and agent
In the Immense work of creating a
new nature for the believer." "In tho
now birth, then, the Word of God ls
the seed ; the human heurt ls the soil ;
God by Ills Spirit opens tho heart to
receive the seed ; the hearer believes,
tho Spirit quickens the Implanted
seed Into lifo In the receptive heart;
tho new divino nature springs up out
of tho Implanted Word ; tho believer
is born again, created anow, made
olive, passed out of death Into Ufo."
A remarkable brick, taken from tho
ancient wall of Babylon, bears tho In
scription of one of Its mighty kings.
In tho center of the Inscription ls tho
footprint of n dog. It wns the custom
to imprint the royal mark upon bricks
used for public works. While this par
tlculnr brick waa lying In Its plnstlo
or soft state, drying In the sun, a
vagrant dog evidently trod upon lt.
Tho king's Inscription ls entirely Il
legible, while the footprint of the dog
ls perfectly distinct. So sin lins ef
faced the Imngo of God, lenvlng be
hind Its own unmistakable mark. Tho
divine method of recovering what waa
lost In sin ls a new creation based on
on act of faith In the finished work of
Christ (II Cor. 5:17.)
Christ the Intermediary.
Seeing then that wo havo a grent
high priest, that ls passed Into tho
heavens,, Jesus tho Son of God, let us
hold fust our profession. For we hnvo
