^ AMERICAN LEGION NOTES 4>j
r The Fourth National convention of
tie American Legion which met in
New Orleans, La:, October 16-20,
1922, was a great convention. The i
f \ outstanding feature of the conven-'
f tion was the careful and thorough,
I * preparations made to render service
| during the coming year. The re-!
k ports of the committees and national
L officers were thoughtful anl exhaus- j
f tive, and-laid the foundation for the
f constructive work to which the legioiy
has dedicated itself in the present
year In the future as in the past the
legion will make the welfare of the
disabled veteran- its first care and
"There are four outstanding -principles
upon which we, the American
* Legion, rest. They are hospitaliza*
tion, rehabilitakm, adjusted corapen
sation and Americanism. It is all
summed up in that one term, the Americanism
of the legion.
"By buddies, I accept the honor
you have conferred upon me. I give
you my hand. I am grateful.
"To the accomplishment of the.
f things we set out to do, I pledge to
you the best energies of my manhood
and my sacred honor/'

BROWN-EYED BABY LEFT
ON FAMILY'S PIAZZA
Swish of Woman's Skirt and Purr of
Motor Signalize Stork's Departure?Mrs.
Martin is Pleased i
Anderson, Oct.* 24.?Tucked securely
in a drummer's sample case, a
two months old baby girl, possessing
a glorious pair of brown eyes and a
shock of raven hair which causes a
mother's heart to surge with an ineffable
joy and contentment, last night
as the village curfew tolled the midnight
hour, adorned the front porch
of J. E. Martin, prominent farmer,
residing at High Point, some six
miles below Belton. The hurried
swish of a woman's dress, the rythmic
purring of a motor and the proverbial
stork, which had assumed the
form of a woman wearing a number
two size shoe, disappeared in the direction
of Belton. up the suburban
highway, deserted at such an hour of
the night. 1 !
In addition to the infant, the drummer's
case contained many pretty
baby clothes and a gallon bottle of
milk, obviously a suggestion as to the
tastes of the youngster. Mr. and Mrs.
Martin were roused by the noise of
the automobile and rushed to the
front door in time to see the car disappear
in the darkness. Mrs. Martin
is not in the Qeast perturbed by tne
unexpected visit of the youngster,
neither is_she at a loss as Jo t&e
course ?f%ction," on the contrary, she
seems greatly delighted and contends
that from how on \t will be her ve*y
Mr- Martin is a prominent farmer
of Anderson county and was formerly
chief of police of Belton.

DR. LYMAN ABBOTT
DIED ON SUNDAY
Was Editor-in-Chief of "The Outlook"
and Was Famous
New York, Oct. 23.?Dr. Lyman
Abbott, editor in chief of The Outlook
with which he had been associated
nearly 40 years, clergyman, lawyer,
author and successor to Henry
Ward Beecher as pastor of Plymouth
church, Brooklyn, died today. He
would have been 87 next December..
When the end came his four sons and
two daughters were at the bedside.
Dr. Abbott suffered a severe attack
of bronchitis at his country
home in Cornwall-on-the Hudson last
summer, from which he never fully
recovered. He returned to his city
home two weeks ago.
! The Rev. Lyman Abbott, D. D.y
was one of the most active leaders in
many avenues of religious and civic
thought in the United States. As
; preacher editor, author and theolo!
gian he exhibited a quality of character
which impressed itself on al^
[ who came in contact with him, a singular
poise and serenity of spirit.
In his early youth, after graduartion
from the university of the city
of New York, he studied law and was
admitted to the bar, and afterwards
practiced in partnership with his broi
thers, Benjamin V. and Austin Ab|
bott. Giving up the law for theology
he studied for the ministry of the
Congregational church, with his uncle,
S. C. Abbott, and was ordained
at Farmington, Me., in 1860. His
first charge was in Terre Haute, Ind.,
where he remained five years.
As editor of the Christian Union,
which was later known as The Outlook,
his' work, in association with

er, marked him as a man of great
promise and one who saw religion.
! jiot too narrowly conventionalized,
' but overlapping: and spiritualizing
1 many of the social and civil problems
of the time.
f\ After .the death of Mr/Be^L-her Dr.Abbott
became pastor of PlymouthL
church in BrocJklyp, where his pre.
decessor had earned fame as one of.
. the foremost pulpit orators in Amer/
ica. He was installed in Plymouth
. church January 16, 1890. and re.
mained in charge until 1899, when he
resigned. He published a life of
Henry Ward Beecher and a voltfme
j of his jsermons.
I In Dr. Abbott's work as editor of
; The Outlook, in which he was asso[
ciated in his long career with many'
> famous men, including Theodore
> Roosevelt, he sought to intern ret "the
! different orders of political organizai
tions from the Christian viewpoint.
l ! Those who were near him during
> this part of his life say that extraor;
dinary working power was one of his
' chief characteristics. Moderation and
sanity were the chief notes of his .
temperament and attitude. He com
manded attention by his transparent
j siccerity and by a gift of clear peri
