The second class phenomena, which
"we may call :he automatic, consists j
of table tilting and turning with contact,
writing, drawing, through the
medium hand; convulsive movements
and involuntary dancing, intransment,
trance-speaking and persona
tion by the medium of deceased persons,
attributed to temporary possession,
seeing spirits, visions, and
hearing phantom voices. This class
bears affinity to some of the phenomena
of hypnotism and certain nervous

This modern fake, togther with
witch-craft and other abominable I

of public favor. Truth, that great

actuates the lives of many. Trulth,

eve and hand, but the hand of reason
and love was brought into play.
Her services were demanded, her keen
intellect was sought and her penetrating
eye was called for. She came, !
looked, investigated and found the
fraud ard scandal. With untiringj
and relentless energy she went to
work, framed laws, organized courts, I
impanelled juries, tried cases an^ con- .
. victed thousands of the perpetrators
of these frauds and scandals; thus we j
see and so exclaim, Oh, Thou Truth,!
what a power thou art.
. Th-pre is vet one thing more to '
which I desire to refer as illustrating, J
not only the fact that trifth is a ,
fthing of much pow?r but also it has
its triumphs. The war between the i
S:ates was on. Ruin and devastation j
were seen on every hand as the effects
of this bloody conflict.' Thousands
of the best and truest were shedding
Itheir lifes blood i^ vindication of,
their" country's honor. Prayers from
many sad and troubled hearts had as- J
cended heavenward expressing thej
"hope that hostilities would soon 1
cease and peace would reign supreme.
But the cloud of war remained low,
"heavy and dark. Lee and Grant were j
still plowing great furrows in the j
heart of the two sections or tne ai- j
Tided union, and fthe ground was
stained afresh with the blood of those
who freely sacrificed their all for
home, for country ' and for justice.) j
Much valuable property and many institutions
df learning suffered great- j
ly at the hand of the heartless and j
blood-thirsty generals on the Union
side. Our own college, my friends, j
lay in the pa>:!i of the great destroy- :
er. Vv'hile she was not completely annihilated,
still the property was badly
abused at the hand of the haters of
the South. What a .blow was brought;
upon our schools by the bloody con- j
flict. That which was so bright, en- j
couraging and promising soon vanish
ed away and hope ceased to cheer and j
inspire. Early in the spring of '61
Ithe college was closed, the students
having been summoned home because
of the excitement and confusion
of an approaching civil war. The
professors resigned with the burning
conviction, no doubt, that the
Queen of fortune would never smile
upon her again. At last the bloody
conflict was' brought to a close, tne
arms were stacked. Peace had been
declared and surviving Grays and
Blues returned home.
Many were lefit upon the battle-field
clasped in the cold arms of death
and with regard to them I wish to express
the sentiment of the poet, who

large number of Greenwood people
attended tthe last sad rites.
Gen. U. R. Brooks in today's State
paid the following beautiful tribute J
to Mrs. Tompkins. j
"At her lovely home near Ninety
Six, Mrs. D. H Tompkins died at y
a. m., June 9, 1913, in the 63rd year
of her age. She was the beautiful

marriage to the friend of my youth,
the Hon. D. H. Tompkins. She
leaves her devoted husband and five
loving children to mourn her loss?
