about a '"short and sweet'' talk which I

e A Visit to Whitmire.
The following- is by the Rev. J. W. i
Wolling, D. D., in the Southern
d In obedience to an invitation of
e our.pastor, I hastened down from
e the breezy height of the Land of the
. Sky to preach at Whitmire. I reach
r- ed there to find the pastor devoid of a
,d wife as Mrs. Speer had for a month
been absent on a visit to relatives,
and though expected had not arrived. i
So- with the pastor at this time in such1
t. a '.'fra.me of mind'" I aeeepted the
- kind invitation to the large and comn
e fortable homne of Mr. Morrow, where I
s found a generous hospitality. How
te ever, my stay at this home was brief
as I- was soon sought by my kinsman,
Mr. William Coleman, the son of the
s. most. noble and generous lawman of
our South Carolina Methodism, Col.
Rebt. C. Coleman. His wife also was
a Coleman brought up on the banks
of the beautiful Freneh Broad just
a few miles from Asheville.
Whitmire has greatly grown since
I was there twelve years ago. A lag'e
cotton mill has increased the popula
tion and 3added greatly to the busi
ness movement. A new church, larg
er and better, has replaced the old
one, and a very nice parsonage is p'ow
fully paid for, and in good condition.1
Whitmire has grown but the sur
rounding country, which in other days.
had a prosperoius and cultured popu
lation. is now almost abandoned. The
farms are now turned over to the col
ored people who as renters, occupy the
territory. Very soon, as it now seems.
some of the churches in -the rural
parts must be abandoned.
Sunday. the 7th of Juily, was a
summer day such .as would do honor
to Central Africa or the Amazon val
i- e. Still the friends of Whitmire did
e not fail to -come. At(the miorng hour
h there assembled a fine congregation
n1 an'd T sm-oke to them about some n

the :Ilose of the services I met a rium
fber of. friends of my former visit.
