that all who cared to within the

BITS OF BY-PLAY.
Our representative was in the town
of Frcdonia u few days ago and in
conversation with .I.K Wyatt learned
that ho has raised this year 80 acres
of tobacco. Taking itito consideration
the prices ruling, Mr. Wyatt a
should do well this year barring accidents.
Making inquiry of a neighbor
as to Mr. Wyatts whereabouts
we were informed that he was in the
tobacco patch wormiug, suckcring
and cutting all at the same time.
It is not often that all theso operations
are carried on in the same field a
and in the same day.

and came over to the depot.

don't propose to keep him any longer

mule was about as bad as mules ever
get to be and made inquiry to that
"Oh its not that" said Mr. Hicc.
"Tho trouble with that mule is he is
too gentle." "You can't fool me on

thoy arc no account. That mule is
too gentle for mo."
While Mr. Hice was speaking a
colored man passed.
"How much do you weigh now

'4,780 pounds" replied John, "I
fell off 113 pounds since dinner."

Wo note with more than passing
iatorcst that a certain Mr. Benjamin
Heed, of Kvansvillc, lad., broke two
of his mothers ribs tho other day
while embracing her.
The reason for the notation and
the amount of interest manifested is
caused mainly by the fact that it was
his mother. If it had been his Cook
would have escaped notice.
Apropos ot the Picturo Show which
gave an exhibition of "The Passion
l'lay" in the Opera House the first
of September it is very interesting
to read in the program that Christ on
the mount of transfiguration was seen
talking to "Moses and Eliza." We
further read that the picture was
"taken at Amberagain, Switzerland.
Christ was seen talking to Moses
and Elias and the play represented is
given every 10 years at
gan, a village in Bavaria -If miles
southwest oi .Munich.
In the year W'.VA the inhabitants of
this placo sueccedod in escaping from
plague which devastated tho surrounding
country. In gratitude for
this they made a vow to perform this
"Passion l'lay" once in every 10
years. The staging consists of ;.0

Obo Young tells us of u spollbiudcr
who once arose in the court house in
Marionaud began his address as follows:
"Ladies and ucntlcmcn, fellow
citizens and countrymen. After due
consideration, deliberation and meditation,
I am forced to the conclusion
that large cities have more inhabitants
than small townb."
The excitement due to this sally
did not subside for quite a while.
Obo Young and Mr. Hob Woods
went fishing last week. Quite a
crowd gathered in front of Orme's
drug store where the fishing expedition
was being reproduced in debate.
Mr. Woods had the floor, or rather
the sidewalk, and details were detailed
with startling accuracy. Finally
Obay secured the rostrum and
his relation of the capture of a trout
about this long, (full arm
together with the long 20
minute struggle up the bank and
back again and Mr. Trouts final
produced no little excitement.
His auditors nodded assent. Every
word was accepted as the gospel
truth. Not one doubted or said nay.
Flushed with success and rising to
the occasion Mr. Young said: "Gentlemen
I tell you what is tho fact.
The catfish we caught yesterday were
the most vigorous and longest lived
fish I ever .seon. I cleaned one of
thorn and then cut his head off. I
guess it must have been half an hour
after, Ma, she poured hot water over
it, you know you have to pour hot
water on them to skin them and
would you believe it, that fish jumped
out of the pau. i'cs, sir-e-e they
were tho most sprightly fish I over
The excitement died suddenly and
Will Clark whistled softly and started
for his office. The crowd faded away
talking vigorously to Mr. Woods.
mi l i
inc last anyone ncara was a voice
pitched rather high "Well, I know
ii did jump out of the pan."
A few nights ago the picture show
put on a prize fight between "Bat.
tling Nelson" and the colored pugilist
Joe Gans. Hand bills wero struck
aud everybody in town knew exactly
the program. A certain good deacon
which we name Number One went co
prayer meeting, but the prize fight
taking place in the Opera House was
on his mind.
A certain good Deacon Number
Two went to prayer meeting in
church, but the prize fight in
the Opera House was on his mind.
Alter mo prayer meeting was over
Deacon Number One passed by the
other church and observed Deacon
Number Two m attendance resolved
to take in the prize fight for he slyly
observed to himself there won't be
any church members there.
Deacon Number Two made the
same observation to himself and went
to the show. When the lights were
turned up consternation reigned.
The picture show placed on
for a few uights "The Passion
Play" or the life of Christ illustrated.
Kaoh night the house was full.
Among the prominent faces seen on
the first night were noted that of the
red gauntlet men, our fellow citizen
Mr. J. Cameron Wallace. Mr.
Wallace was in the company of a
Methodist and having read the hand
bills on the street he folt that he was
authority on Pa&sion Plays in general
and this one in particular.
As each scone prosouted itself on
tho canvass Mr. Wallace explained
to his benightod Methodist brother
the hidden meaning. Be it

The large choir heartily cooperated
with their leaders and their
inspiring music added much interest
to tho services. The spirit oi God
rested in power up the services and
many shouts as in the days of yore
went up from that sacred altar.
Christians from other communities
and churches heartily co-operated in
the work. There were scvontccn or
more professions of faith and thirteen
united with the church. The Pastor,
Hev. A. J. Thomas, did the preaching,
and through all the meeting ho
was ever present and alert to render
his service in every time of need.
Rev. J. F. Price did the preaching
the last week, and it seemed like old
times to have him with us preaching
tho same old gospel. To God be all

by Revs. Elgin and Oakley of
Marion, also singers Kobt. and Chas.

interest taken was excellent.
