sum of $5.75 each for drunkenness,
Capt. Jas. H. Hammond, commanding
the company, said 'today that
Lyles and Pennington, privates, would
immediately be given dishonorable dis
charges from the service. The de
fendant Eberhardt is not a member
of the company. Capt. Hammond said
the ground on which the men were to
be discharged from the company was
"conduct unbecoming a sodier."
Capt. Hammond said that Penning
ton had been sleeping in the armory,

about a week, and on Tuesday night,
following the 98th annual barbecue

Dr. W. W. Orr's meeting, of nearly
three week4' continuance, closed last
night Of all the excellent men who~
haves conducted special meetings in
this town perhaps no one has given
it a -greater moral and spiritual uplitt
than has Dr.\Orr.
He is no 'novice in the work. He
has beenu a minister 34 years, -but he
.has not been in the evangelistic work
-. so long. The good doctor was not a
-stranger when he came, having. held
meetings in the town and county 21
years ago. He is an unremitting
worker. Indeed his friends are only
afraid, that he will overtax his
strength and suffer nervous prostra

While here he held two services
daily (except Saturday) and, occasion-,
ally, three. On a Sunday afternoon he
lectured at the Methodist church to
the Sunday school superintendents
and teachers of the town. This l,ec
ture was replete with good sense and
suggestion. On a Saturday night he
preached to the mill operatives in the
pavilion at Willowbrook park.
Dr. Orr has crossed the continuent
twice since Christmas; and has aver
aged 52 sermons a month. He has en
gagements for 18 months ahead. He
is one of those stalwart, courageous,
unselfish, and loving men that you
meet but once in a score of years.
Most of the services were held in
the opera house which has more seat
ing capacity than the churches of thel
town. All denominations participated
in them and shared the benefits. He
studiously avoided wounding denomi
national feeling; but he. did not fail
to denounce sin in high places and
low. He does not hesitate to call a
spade a spade.
He is an A. R. Presbyterian, but if
you were ignorant of his church rela
tion, after hearing him you would
likely conclude that he was a Method
ist. #e a live preacher. All of the
series of services were impressive,
but it occurred to the writer that the
lecture to men exclusiyely on a Sun
day afternoon, was the most fruitful
of good. He has taken pains to in
form himself about matters discussed
and some of the disclosures made
were startling. I hope he will repeat
this lecture in every town and city
that he.visits. It is bound to do good.
In one sermon he paid his respects
to higher criticism. Coming down
with his open palm upon the Bible he
declared that he accepted thne whole
Book, including the story oi "lonah
and the whale. To this, I think alost
of his audience gave -, sental aen.
The old time religloan is good enough,
Dr. Orr was once pastor in Texas
for several years and is persnaily
acquainted with the Rev. Abe Mulkey,
a consecreated and zealous local
preachor of that State. Perhaps the
doctor's .opinion of Mr. Mulkey is an
ndex to his own character and work.
Said he, "Abe Mulkey would not know*
theology if he were- to meet it in the
road; but he has wrought more good
than any four pastors in the great
State of Texas. Learning Is a good
thing, eloquence Is a good thing, like
wise family prestige, but in Zhe last
analysis dioing good is the only thing
The doctor despisee hypocrisy and
shams. Speaking of post-mortem flor
al tributes he said, "I sometimes feel
like kicking the flowers off a new
made grave, because those who placed
them there did not have grace enough
to warn- and encourage the dead while
He is thankful that be is a South

Western towns and cities,' baseball is
a Sunday recreation. Upon the South
devolves the reponsibility of maintain
ing the Christian Sabbath, and the
purity of church . doctrine. Will \she
measure up to her responsibility?~
It has- not yet been determined
what the visible results of the meeting
are, but the town has derived great1
benefit from the labors of this faithful~
man. No doubt about this.
