Murphy, as hostess of this very de
iirtiitfni nri instmctlve occasion.
From seven until eight o'clock was
spent In transacting the regular busl-
nessof the Club ana listening to a
paper vupon Buenos Ayres, prepared
for this program by Mrs. Yeoman and
read by Mrs. Hlbben. After which
the guests Including the Good Men
Fridays and invited friends assembled
In cheerful array to listen to a talk by
Mr. Ernest F,aber, recently returned
from a sojourn In South America.
Happily the night was clear and
starlit, the pavements dry and enabled
a goodly number to be present.
The Club study for this year Is South
Amerlcatand It was through the kind
ness and efforts of our hostess that
Mr. Faber was Induced to address the
Club upon South America in general
and more particular upon the subject,
"Why Is Argentina the most advanced
of South American Republics ?"
. Mr. Faber humorously prefaced his
talk by his reference to an old Spanish
proverb which says, "A woman's will
Is God's will." He said he had never
before so fully realized the truth ex
pressed in this proverb as he had since
lip liari linnwn Miss MurDllV. "She SO
willed that I should speak to you and
when a woman wills she wills. Here

great pleasure to myself."
A eood maD of Argentina was ar
ranged In full view and Mr. Faber also
had a. fine collection of views and prints
of scenes and objects of Interest in the
country, which were passed about as
he described them. Mr. Faber speaks
several different languages and has
Just enough of the foreign accent to
make his speech attractive.
His unintentional humor provoked
many outbursts of laughter and his
fine presentation of this sister country
maintained the deepest interest and
elicited the hearty applause of his
He presented in a clear and compre
hensive manner the situation of the
ctuntry, the interests and the life
there. It is impossible to enter into a
detailed account of this description but
it was gratifying as well as surprising
to hear that besides being the largest
city next to New York in the two
Americas, Buenos Ayres with its mil
lion and a half of people is the cleanest
city, morally, and a fine of 3100 and
imprisonment is imposed upon anyone
who Insults a woman upon the streets.
In other respects It is the Paris of

pleasing talk Mr. Faber informally

not planned as a celebration of its

The big tabernacle was dedicated
Sunday morning and has been packed
at every meeting. So great is the
interest and so large the crowds that
it is believed that it will be necessary
to enlarge the tabernacle to accommo
date those desiring to attend.
At each meeting Evangelist Wilhlte
is adding to his reputation as a power
ful and forceful preacher. Prof. Shaul,
the leader of the music, arrived Tues
day and is indeed a real leader. It is
indeed Inspirational to hear the chorus
of over 200 and the orchestra of 15
pieces leading the great audiences in
the soul stirring hymns.
At every meeting a number are
coming forward and confessing Christ.
Including Tuesday evening 82 men and
women had taken this important step.
Rev. JWilhlte places the number who
will be converted at this meeting at
not less than 500 and confidenily ex
pects it to go far beyond that figure
and in his prediction he is confirmed
by all who are taking an active part
In the work.
The Interest in the meetings is not
confined to Hillsboro, but has spread
throughout the county and every night
hundreds from miles around drive in
to hear the noted evangelist.
Arrangements have been made with
the Traction Company to run a special
car, leaving here at 10.20 on Wednes
day and Sunday nights for the accom
modation of those along Its line who
wish to attend. It will run as far
west as Fayettevllle. If the passen
gers are sufficient to warrant it the
company will run this car every night,
until the meetings close.
The subjects of the sermons for the
balance of the week and including
Sunday follow :
Tuursday "Ten Reasons for Believ
ing the Bible to be the Word of God."
Friday "Self Verified Truths."
Saturday "Tho Problem of Life and
Sunday morriing "The Resurrec

The first sermon preached by Rev.
Wilhlte in Hillsboro was on "Religion
in the Home" and on account of many
requests he will repeat it Sunday
Evangelist Wilhlte says these meet
ing are absolutely non-denomlnatlonal
and urges all Chistian people to join
in the work of bringing souls to
Christ ; that nothing will be done by
him to In anyway Influence any of the
converts in making their choice of the
church they will join and that the
church that will derive the most
benefit will be the one whose mem

report was a summary of the work
done by the Association during the
past year and it showed that It was
always up and doing In every matter
for the betterment of Hillsboro. Mr.
Free called attention to the fact that
the main purpose of the organization
was not to secure new industries for
Hillsboro, but to help in everyway to
build up the town. He spoke of the
work that was done for the flood suf
ferers, the securing of better train
service for Hillsboro, the holding of
the Fall Exposition, the "better farm
ing train" and the social side of the
Association as evidenced by last years
. The first speaker called upon by
President Free was J. Ed. Shannon.
Mr.-Shannon spoke on the "Inter-dependence
of Town and Country." He
plainly showed the necessity to the
people of the town of the people of the
country and vice versa and that a
spirit of good will and mutual help-
fulness should exist. Mr. Shannon

the rich; next the beginning of the
public school system with the log

and until now we had the great instl
tutional schools. The evolution of
the school system and its causes was
plainly outlined. He spoke of the
assistance that the women of Hillsboio
had been to him and his co-workers in
the developing of the schools of the
town and said that he hoped to inter
est the men in this work. He spoke
briefly of the domestic science course

BAR PAYS TRIBUTE
To Memoryof Judge Steele at
The members of the Highland
County Bar met at the Court Room
Thursday morning at 10 o'clock to
hear the report of the committee ap
pointed to draft a memorial on the
Newby presided at tlie meeting.
Hjn. George L. Garrett, chairman
of the committee, read the resolutions
which were a just tribute to the high
character, ability and true worth of
Judge Steele as a man and a lawyer.
The other members of the committee
were O. N. Sams and EI. P. Morrow.
Following the reading of the memo
rial talks were made by Judge J.
Frank Wilson, O. N. Saras, I. McD.
Smith. L. R. Duckwall, H-P. Morrow,
O. F. Ilorst, Judge J. B. Worley, Col.
D. Q. Morrow and Judge Newby. Mr.
Garrett also read letters from Hon. R.
T. Hough, of Washington, D. C, and
he had often known Judge Steele to
refuse to take a case because he did
not consider It meritorious and had
never known him to turn a client
away because he could not pay a fee
if he considered he had a good case.
Judge Newby stated that Judge
Steele' In his presentation of the facts
and law In a case always impressed
you that his object was to assist the
court or the court and jury to arrive
at a correct decision ; that he had
nsver attempted to garble either the
facts or the law ; that several tlmt s
Judge Steele had come to him after
the argument of legal questions and
stated that he was not certain that
the position he had taken in the ar
gument was correct and requested
Judge Newby to give it careful con
slderation before giving his- decision.
H. P. Morrow at the conclusion of
hts remarks read an address that
Judge Steele made In 1880 at the
j meeting of the bar at which a memo-
rial on the death of Judge Albert
Matthews was adopted. As Mr. Mor
row well said the remarks of Judge
Steele on Judge Matthews might well
be applied as descriptive of Judge
Steele. These remarks follow :
"I was no aware that these very
appropriate services would be held
this morning, or I should have taken
pleasure In preparing myself to speak
"I do not feel that I am called upon
by duty or by my conscience to make
any remarks upon this occasion, yet I
look upon It as a sort of melancholy
pleasure to add my testimony to the
worth and character of Judge Mat
thews and Harness Qulnn. With
Judge Matthews I have been associa
ted at the Bar for twenty years, while
1 knew Mr. Qulnn as a bright, educa
ted gentleman, with whom It was al
ways a pleasure to meet. It was my
privilege to know Judge Matthews
well and Intimately, and while it has
been said here that he was not a
great man, let me ask, what is great-
nest? Is it that the world should be

be great is to be modest, generous,
just, of clean hands, a pure heart,

with prudence governing Impulses,
and wisdom guiding his every step,
true to his family, his iriends. and
true to his chosen
profession and to
himself, then I say that in accord
ance with that standard Judge Mat
thews was great.
"Tho singular love he had for the
memoers of the Bar was really beauti
