and none shall go away discontented or

that is to say, he knew the ancestors o
most of them, and did their offspring
no:, continue the custom of the fore,
fathers, it would indeed be regarded
sacrilege by the remaining of the oldex
ones, it would make their wrinkled
faces burn with shame; but they need
have no concern along this line, like
father like son, the traditions of the
fathers are revered by the younger
generation. It was the good fortune
of the writer to spend one year of the
happiest days of his younger life
among those people. and, he verily
believes that in this association there
was inculcated in him many of the
principles and sentiments which today
abide with them, and which they hold
to and cherish. It was therefore, of
especial interest to him that he went
with the party to manifest the regard
of this county for that wonderful man
who has consecrated his life for the
uolift of his fellowman.
The party left Manning in six auto.
mobiles at an early hour, six o'clock,
and toured through Clarendon, Sumter
Lee and Darlington counties, arriving
at Oats about 10:30 in time fdr the
moruing service. We were received
with open arms by Mr. McLendon, his
appreciation of this splendid demon
stration touched him deeply, and it
was appreciated by the large assem
b'age who were present to worship.
Rev. "Reub:n" Humphreys the pastor
expressed the feeling of his people for
this visit, and it seernzd to ui that even
the little children realized the wean
ing of twenty nine men travelling over
sixty miles to hear a man preach; as
one little girl expressed it to the
writer "You all must like Mr. Mac.'
That little girl struck the key note,
and'in those few words interpreted
the real meaning of itwenty seven :cLa
from Manning, and one lady aud gen
leman from Pinewood travellin
through hot sun and clouds of dust for
sixty miles to attend a religious service.
Yes, we "like Mr. Mac." Why?
Because, he came amongst us with his
soul burning with the fervor of his
earnestness. He came to bring a mes
sage of love. He came as few men can
come, to speak plain and without leav
ing scars of irritit-on. He unsheathed
his sword and proceeded to strike with
out respect to individuals. He smote
where the smotitng'was needed; where
men were shackled with pride or ig
norance, he released then from their
fetters and set them free. He is a MAN,
and that is why he won the hearts of
this people, and if God spares his life
he will win the hearts of many thous
We attended two services at the tent,
and at each there was a large congre
gation, to each, he preached powerful
semons. His descriptive powers are
inexhaustable, his comparison% are
a onderful, and his vocabulary of
phrases, some of them seemingly un
conventional leave these sound ringing
in the ear for time to come. One of
the features of the mor-ning meeting.
was up:>n the arrival of the visitors,his
feeling remarks, and his requiring
them to stand up that his people may
see the people who tbus honored him.
He preache:d a magnificient sermon, it
was tear fetching and heart consoling
it was as impressive a sermon as we
have ever listened at, and was worth
the trip to hear.
When this service was over, then it
was the visiso's became the vict ims of
a ush, everybody wanted us to go to
dinier with them, whic~h of course was
impossible; so we agreed to bU- divided
up in parts, and thus let as many of tbe
party be the recipients of the hospital
itv of these kind people as possible.
Te writer with Messrs. R. H. Davis,
F. L. Wolf, T. H. Timmons went to
the home of .i r. Henry Josey and there
we enjoyed his hospitality such as only
the descendant of the old stock could dia
pense as his foirebears would have done.
At this home we met an aged friend
whom we knew in the years gzone by,
she no longet is that vivacious and
sprightly soul who was the life of the
community 38 years ago, but sihe is
bent with aae and her bait- is crowned
with the frosts of 75 winters, when she
took our band and told uis she rememn
bered when we used to visit her home,
together with the boys and girns of the
community, we almost felt like embrac
ing the geod old soul, as a token of our
appreciation of the days she alluded to,
and the remarkable memory she dts
played. She now lives with her daugh
ter Mrs. Henry Josey and enjoys their
loving kindness, and the romping uf
her grand, and gr-eat-grandchild-en.
May her days continue to be blessed
and long, and her mind be as clear as
when we saw her Sunday. All of our
party enjoyed every moment of our
stay in tnis nome,-it was really home.
'1be after-noon service was also large
l attended, and the peopyle heard an
other splendid deliverance. Tney
heard the scripture defined in language
that he who runs may i-ead. There
were two features to this meeting both
of which were unexpected. One was,
M. McLeardon anirunced that persons
in the atudience repeat a verse of scrip
tnt-e and lhe would tell them where
they can tind it in the bible. The con
gregation for several minutes fired _at
him the verses, and without hesitation
he would give them the chapter and
verse, and sometimes a person would
get his ver-se a little mixed and the
reacher would repeat it for him or
oe. always following with where the
paiicular verse can be found.
Then he aunounced that, for- the bene
it of the visitors, lie had asked the col
ored people~ to sing, and their were in
that congregation a large numnbet- o
negroes, their singing was beautiful,
such ful sweet voic-s, such time and
such r-hymth is se:domn heard. These
voces seemed to add an additional fer
vor to the words, and as the swayin~a
rhinth went thtroug h that congrega
tion ever-ybody moved in unison with
it.. No wonder "niggers shout-"
CThe people wanted us to stay ove:
for the night service, and pr-otnised un
more sur-prises in the way of singing
but the distance was great and wye al
ha- to tget back home, so amid the ur
ent invitations to return we hoarde(
our cat-s and wended out- way to Harts

It Was Hot Staff.
The mock campaign meeting which
took place last Thursday evening in
the school house for the benefit of the
Civic League was quite a success, and
those who participated in it surely aid
give a good imitation of the modern
campaign meetings. Many of the
"skits" would have fitted the stunts of
the famous Gridiron Club that has its
banquets in Washington, where ridi
cule is permitted to run amuck, and
those who are the victims of its shafts
must "grin and bear it," or in tbe
languageof another, "they cant help
On the occasion referred -to there
were some mighty skin-chafing cracks
made, "many'a truth spoken in jest"
was the rule rather than the exception.
and while those who were the objects
of attack took their punishment good
naturedly we have no doubt that some
of them felt like Latimer's goat w ben
stung by a bee as he was jumping the
fence. It was really an evening of fun
for the audience, and some of the
speeches were remarkably surprisingi,
aong the numbers most favorably
commeited on was the speech of Mr.
13 P. Fulton, whose delivery was su
perb, and his humor real .dignified and
oriinal.. All of them aid well, acid
nowithtanding that Capt. W. C. Dav
is' chauffeur was wearing Mr. Wide
man' clothes, and 'Videman could not
deny it., he did splendid for a newly
married man. The presiding offiher
Mr. W. M. Plowden, performed his
arduous duty with great dignity until
the s campaigners trained their' guns
upon him, then he forgor, everything
and awaited the final outcome and its
consequences-"~a guilty c.oncience
Captain Davis' excoriation of his law

principle, when argument is lacking,

What S. Oliver O'Bryan did for the
crew was a plenty, some of his hits

of his opponents, and brought forth
Herman Bradham got off some pretty
good jokes, and male an eloquent pre
sentation of nothing which is cr'arac
teristic of the average stump speaker.
Mr. H. I. Ellerbe remin~ded us of the
sour and disappointed candidate who is
facing an antagonistic audience, and he
r~ealizes that his voters are few and far
Charlie Wells who gave a history of
his past life, of course leaving out parts
of it, made a fine appeal for votes and
if he keeps it up we have no doubt that
he will some day be a winner.
It is no exaggeration to say that each
and every one of the acto'rs in this
unique performance greatly entertain
ed their hearers, much more so than
the average campaign speakers.
