For the past week great congrega
tions have been held spell bound by
the grand oratory and earnest and
forceful arguments of Rev. L. A.
Cooper the evangelist. Those whose
good fortune it is to hear him come
away impressed with the man's won
derful ability for reaching the mind
and heart, not only with his forceful
argument but with the melody of his
singing. He is doing a good work and
it is not confined to the Baptist denom

and creeds are attending and all feel
the good this servant of God is doing.
'Tis a pity that men who are moral
scabs can fool people into believing
what they say, yet it is a sad truth that
they can. We know of an instance
where a man, whose character is as
black as midnight, has, for political ef
fect, spread the most slanderous re
ports,but did it in such a nasty,coward
ly manner that he cannot be held ac
countable. This man would, to further
a purpose, swear to a lie, or do any
thing low and mean. He obtained the
listening ear of some, and his viperous
sting made its mark, to the extent of a
loss of a number of votes in Tuesday's
The first primary is over and the list
of candidates has been cut down which
makes the choice easier to make. Our
advice to the voters is to drive away
the slimy human snakes that are worm
ing their way around the country seek
ing to persuade voters for some one who
is paying them for their services. It
is a safe rule to judge a man by, when
you see a fellow riding over the coun
try whispering slanders you can put
him down as a scoundrel in the pay of
some other scoundrel. If a man comes
totou with a tale about a candidate
whom you have known all your life,ask
him the cause of his new-born slander.
o gentleman will voluntarily ride
about the country couveying damaging
reports, is another safe rule to guide
your judgment, and whenever a man is
found riding about the country with a
damaging report on a candidate, set
your dogs upon him, if you are not
afraid he will ruin the dogs.
We are frequently asked our opinion
about the price of cotton this season,
and of course, we cannot tell any more
about it than any other observer of
such things, but we will hazard the
opinion that cotton will bring as much
or more this year as it did last. Texas
is reported to be having a very large
cotton yield, but the South Atlantic
States will be short. The general crop
will not excel that of last year, and the
emand for raw material by the manu
facturers will be greater. The reason
is clear: The manufacturers on account
of the long hold out against high prices
let their stocks run low, and at the
same time kept their mills running.
The consequence is they have less
raw m at eri al, and if cotton
is not ma rke t ed too fast it will
find the manufacturers going out to
look for the cotton and in such a case
they will pay full price for it. .We are
onvinced that the - cotton situation
rests upon the good judgment of the
farmer and his local merchants, and
with a mutual confidence in each other
we see no reason for any misgivings
about the price.
To the voters of Clarendon: I desire
to gratefully acknowledge my sincere
appreciation of the handsome vote I re
eived in the election yesterday, and
to saythat in entering upon the sec
ond race I will do so upon the same
high plane which characterized my
conduct in the first. I have not in any
way attempted to gain votes by appeal
ing to prejudices, or by misrepresent
ing any one, neither have I made a
combination with other candidates,and
above all else I have no man employed
to go about the county slandering 1ny
opponents. I wish to warn the people
against men who have political grudges
to pay, or men who go about the coun
ty telling any and all kinds of dirty
lies which they think will drive a vote
from me. The first man that reaches
your community with a damaging re
port about me, matters not who he is,
whether he be a former office holder
or what not, force him to come to my
'face with his filthy -tongue and I can
give convincing proof of the fellow's
I am seeking an honor, and I would
scorn to have the office if I had to re
sort to low methods to obtain it. The
people of Clarendon should know why
certain parties are fighting me. I will
remind them of the fights I made a
gainst the cotton seed oil trust, and
this should cause them to recogazize one
one of the reasons for the amiosity of
certain people. If you send me to the
senate I will be your servant and not
the tool of any man or set of men. I
will make every effort to be a senator
that you can feel proud of.
Now on the liquor question. If I go
to the senate .it will not be, as some of
my enemies are trying to make people
believe, to vote to kill the dispensary.
No such is not the case, my position is
to try and give the people themselves
a chance to vote whether they want
the dispensary or not. If the legisla
ture will not give the people a chance
to vote on this question, then the dis
pensary, of course, stands as it is, but
if the people are allowed to vote, the
majority must rule. Again thanking
you for your votes I am

That and~ Ridleule Were His Weaum
ons of Offense and Defense.
Wit and ridicule were Lincoln's
weapons of off'ense and defense, and
he probably laughed more jury cases
out of court than any other man who
practiced at the bar.
"I once heard Mr. Lincoln defend a
man In Bloomington against a charge
of passing counterfeIt money," Vice
President stevenson told the writer.
"There was a pretty clear case against
the accused, but when the chief wit
ness for the people took the stand he
stated that his name was 3. Parker
Green, and Lincoln reverted to this
the moment he rose to cross examine.
'Why 3. Parker Green? What did the
. stand for? John? Well, why didn't
the witness call himself John P. Green?
That was his name, wasn't it? Well,
what was the reason he did not wish
to be known by his right name? Did J.
Parker Green have anything to con
ceal, and, if not, why did 3. Parker
Green part his name in that way?'
And so on. Of course the whole exam
ination was farcical," Mr. Stevenson
said, "but there was something Irre
sistibly funny in the varying tones and
infections of Mr. Lincoln's voice as he
rang the changes upon the man's
name, and at the recess the very boys
in the street took It up as a slogan and
shouted 'J. Parker Green!' all over the
town.. Moreover, there was something
in Lincoln's ray ogIntoninig his ques
tions which made me suspicious of the
witness, and to this day I have never
been able to rid my mind of the absurd
ImpressIon that there was something
not quite right about 3. Parker Green.
It was all nonsense, of course; but the
jury must have been afrected as I was,
for Green was discredited and the de
fendant went free."--Frederick Trevor

THE GNU IS A PUZZLE.
It Seem. to Be a Cros. Between the
Horse, Cow and Deer.
Did you ever hear of a hornedhorse?
It is called the gnu and is a native of
South Africa. The gnu is a puzzle.
We have called It a horse, but It ls
more like a cow. It really seems to be
a cross between the horse, the cow and
the deer. It has the head and horns
of a cow, the tail, the mane and with
ers qf the horse and the legs of a deer.
Altoether the gnu Is one of the most
singular creatures on earth.
The gnu Inhabits the hilly districts
of South Africa, roaming all over the
country In vast herds. As far as trav
elers have yet penetrated it is found,
and It is fortunate that it Is so, for the
flesh of the gnu forms excellent food.
They are, however, extremely wild,
and, being very quick In their move
ments, are difficult to shoot Upon the
first alarm the whole herd scamper
away in single nie, following a leader.
When seen from a distance they look
like a troop of horses.
Their speed Is 'very great, and when
first disturbed they do not exert It, but
kick out their heeis and begin butting
at anything that comes in their way,
exhibiting the greatest fury. Unless
hard pressed they seldom show fight,
but when brought to bay they will de
fend themselves desperately. They
