Mr. Bryan came to Columbia from
Atlanta. where he delivered a lec

in Augusta by a legislative committee.

3:30 o'clock on Friday morning in the
private car of Mr. A. W. Anderson,
the general superintendent of the C.
& W. C. railway. Augusta was
reached at 7 o'clock on Friday morn
Mr. Bryan was standing on the
platform of the union depot in Au
gusta when approached by the com
mittee. He was taken to the car and
introduced to the members of the
party. The car was attached to an
outgoing train and the trip for Co

place in the hearts of the people of
this State. at least. was evidenced
along the route from Augusta to Co

At Leesville the train was met by
several hundred people, including a
long line of the young lady students
of the Leesville college. The young
ladies gave three hearty cheers for
Bryan and waved Confederate flags.
Mr. Bryan. addressing the young lad
ies, said that if he ever turned his at
tention to music he would know where
to find good voices. When he return
ed to the car, he remarked to those
inside that the waving of Confederate
flags was not attended by the same
amount o fdanger as it once was.
At m.ny of the points along the

Magnetic Man Personally.
Mr. Bryan is as charming in private
conversation as in his public oratory.
He is an entertaining conversationa.l
ist and a man of the strongest per
sonal magnetism. He is a man of
great force of character and intense
ly earnest and one can not stay in his
presence for an hour without being
impressed with his unmistakable sin
cerity. He may be wrong in his views
and his advocacy of those views as
the leader of the democratic party
may have worked an incalculable
harm upon the pirty, but the writer.
who was in his company for three
hours and who heard his address of
*more than an hour and a half im
mediately after, believes that he is
earnest and honest and sincere, with
an abiding faith in the final triumph
of right and justice and truth. He is
a man of prepossessing appearance
and of magnificent physique. He is a
clean man, even to the extent of be
ing a gre-u temperance worker and
of ;'utting in.to pri'tice in his owni
life what he preaches to others along
this line. Wearing "the white flower
of a blameless life" he impressed those
on the car with him during the -three
hours' ride from Augusta to Colum

sincerely and honestly carrying into
the discussion of national policies and
politics the same high ideals that he

'Mr. Bryan engaged in an animated
conversation with the members of the
party. The discussion first turned
upon the Russo-Japanese war and
then drifted into national polities.
Mr. Bryan was asked his opinion as
to the strength of William R. Hearst.
Mr. Bryan refused to commit himself
very far, but stated that of all those
who had been mentioned for the dem

Small Farms Are Best.
It is small farms that make a coun
try, not extensive ones. We once liv
ed in a rural neighborhood in Grimes
county. embracing about twenty small
farms. There were a neat neighbor
hood church and a prosperous, well at
tended school. At the little village
on the creek the neighbors would as
semble on Saturdays, do their trading
and brag about their crops and horses
and cattle and hogs. It was a real
pleasure to be one of the number.
The village and the surrounding coun
try were prosperous and happy and
all worked together for the public
good. This co-ndition lasted for many
years. until a Mississippian came and
purchased one of the best farms.
But the farm was too small, and the
proprietor was rich. He bought two
more farms from brothers, and the
next year he bought others, until .he
-o)wned 13,ooo acres of fine land and
had nearly all of it in cultivation. The
school was broken up. Only mission
aries used the church, an.d the village
was almost depopulated and business
was left undone, for the proprietor of
the 13,ooo acre farm purchased less of
goods and wares than any one of the
farmers he had bought out. A hap
py and prosperous neighborhood was
broken up. and where it had been was
a green sea of cotton and corn. It
was desolation compared with condi
tions before the blight came in and
spoiled the pleasant picture.--Farm
Difference in Time.
As the scene of the Russian-Japan
ese wvar is on the other side of the
world, there is a big "difference o1'
time"' to be taken into the account in
considering the dispatches, and some
information on the subject, contrib
uted to the Hartford Courant by a
learned correspondent may be useful
elsewhere than in Connecticut. "Port
Arthur." he writes. "is west of the
conventional 'date-line,' so that time
comes from that place to us. The dis
tance is. approximately, 195 degrees
of longitude, or thirteen h'ours time.
Therefore, to chanige Pott Arthur
.time to ours, subtract thirteen hours,
no matter if the process takes you
back to the previous day to Port Ar
thur date. To change our time to
that of Port Arthur, add thirteen
hours, no matter it it takes you for

ford date. For example-noon at
Port Arthur, February 12, is II p.
m. February 11 at Hartford. If the
torpedo attack, recently reported, be
gan at 11 p. m. at Port Arthur, the
time was 1o a. m. of the same date.
If you are reading at 8 a. m. the
time at Port Arthur is 9 p. m. of the
