REAPING THE HAREST
OF OATS HE HAD SOWN
Rev. A. R. Woodson Person Who Was
Connected in Scandal With
HUSBAND FOLLOWED HER
If a certain person, professing to
be a minister, had chosen as his text
a portion of James 5:17 and had
practiced what he preached, this
story would not have been written,
neither would the facts related here
in have occurred. But he did not,
hence the story.
All of the details, necessarily, can
not be given, but by application of
the imagination of the average person
the occurrence in detail can easily be
pictured. It is, too, a story that is
given only in the interest of public
It seems that a woman from some
other city came here Saturday and
registered at a local hotel. A pastor
of a church in the same city was here
also. Likewise the husband of the
woman and one of the deacons of the
church unknown to the two, were here,
suspicion having been aroused. Late
Saturday night the husband caught
the preacher in the room occupied by
his wife. When a pistol appeared,
the preacher ran down the hall, yell
ing "don't shoot!" Wearing only his
pajamas the parson fled down the hall
and secreted himself behind a chair
that had been placed in a corner and
awaited the coming of the expected
leaden missile, at the same time im
ploring "don't shoot."
By this time other guests had
caught the infuriated husband, who
evidently "was not on murder bent,"
nd urged calmness. He was persuad
'ed to go out and get a cup of coffee
and while he -was gone the parson
hurriedly donned his day-time attire
and left-where, it is not known. The
husband was counselled to return
home with his wife and this he de
cided to do.
Their names are on record, at least
the names that they gave, but for
fear they may have been assumed
and publication might cause embar
rassment to persons not intended,
they are not given herewith. h is
furthermore not believed that they
registered from their home address,
so the city is not given.
Complete verification has been made
regarding the participants in the dis
tressing affair in a local hotel on Sat
urday night, February 22, a general
account of which was given in the
Daily News of last Monday morning.
The names then given were not used
until it could be ascertained positively
that they were correct, the desire be
ing not to embarrass and innocent
The woman in the case was Mrs.
C. C. Bowman, of Carthage, while the
preacher mentioned was A. R. Wood
son, of Alleghany county. It is learned
that many innocent persons have been
connected by gossipers (luring the
past week and. in one small town, it
is learned, virtually every resident
was made a party in the affair by
gossip, the report being enlarged each
time it was repeatedl.
Mr. Bowman only recently removed
his family from Alleghany to Car
thage, suspecting bumething was
wrong. A letter from Woodson to
Mrs. Bowman, askingher to meet him
in Greensboro was found by the hus
band andl he followed her to this city,
wvith the result as stated previously.
The above articles are taken from
the Greensboro, N. C., Daily News of
February 24 and March 2. Rev. Wood
son is well remembered in Manning
as he was pastor of the local Presby
terian chur-sh for several years.
The last monthly meeting of the
Woman's Missionary Society of the
Methodist church was held at the
home of Mrs. J. II.- Rigby with
..twenty -seven members present. Our
4 meetings are growing larger each
time and each one is more interest
ing. Our subject for the afternoon
was, "Democracy andI Its True Mean
ing." Mrs. J. D. G;erald readl the
Bible lesson taken from 1st Cor.
12-12-26. Mrs. I~elms gave us a very
fine paper on "D~emocracy and Its
True Meaning" and Mrs. G. L~. Dick
son rcad an article from "The Voice"
which we all enjoyed. Two hymns
were sung and the song, "We've a
Story to Tell," rendered by M'.sa
Emily Geiger was much enjoyedl by
every one. A delegate was then
elected to attend the Missionary meet
ing at Bishopville. Mrs. G. L.
Dickson was elected delegate and Mrs.
J. D. Gerald was elected alternate.
The next meeting of our Society

n:w look just like they do in the
pictures only they are much higher
than they show up. There were 15
boys to come from our company,
somethimg over one hundred from the
regiment, ab.o about the same number
from the infantry regiients and
other regiments of the 81st. Division.
There are also several other divisions
senihg men on passes to this place,
so there are several thousand sol
diers around here and I don't run up
with any of the boys I know. The
hotel I stay at is ten miles from here
fart her up in the Alps a place called
U riage, one of the best summer re
sorts in France. We go by street car
from Grenoble to Uriage. We stay
in a large hotel, just as good as any
in the states. We get plenty to eat
and the best of accomodations. Uncle
Sam is footing our bills. There are
about fifteen more hotels at U riage,
also stores and other things that it
takes to make a good summer resort.
The weather here is pleasant, but not
as cold as you would suppose for
the time of the year. 'There is an
anewnt castle at Uriage which was
started im 908 A. I)., which is now a
thousand centuries oid and is as good
now as when it was built. Inside
there is furniture a century old. It
is a regular museum showing spears,
arrows and armor that was used long
years passed and gone. There are
some fine paintings of the great men
of France and many relis such as
money dating back to Caesar's time
different, birds, eagles, animals and
stones, many, many things that I
have neither time and space to men
tion now. The old castle alone was
worth the trip here, besides the great
lountains, tiiunels, Caves, waterfalls,
old forts and other things. I will
have to tell von all when I get back
to my dear old home. -l'he Y. M. C. A.
here has every convenience possible
for we boys in service. It is next to
the home to a soldier. Here we have
shows every night and somewhere to
go each day. We still have on our
uniforms but in every other way we
are civilians, no format ions to stand,
no bugler to wake you up in the morn
ings, or for the different calls you
have while on dutv. I am having a
grand time, and I would not take
anything for this trip and for the
experiences I am having while over
here. It has been six months since
J landed on foreign soil. I am wear
ing a gold service stripe on my left
arm for six months foreign service.
Will 'o in the Y and g(' ag iood sup
per cheat ), could go to the hotel and
get it free, but mv pais are now
waiting on we. Wishing the hest of
luck to you all with love.
