Home again and happy. Children
and grandchildren met me at the de
pot and escorted me home, where a
bountiful supper was awaiting, and I
asked the same old blessing that I have
been asking for fifty years, only it was
with unusual gratitude, for I had been
in peril3 of wind and water and escaped.

and now I could rest. I left New Al
bany at midnight, reached Birming.
ham at daylighi, only live minutes late,
and had five minutes' time to buy a
ticket for Pell City, and from there I
was to board the East and West for
home. How happy I was. But alas
for human hopes. flow soon they can
vanish into aespair. There were about
a hundred big, black, greasy negvo
preachers ahead of me at the ticket
office. Their Baptist convention had
-been broken up, and they were going
home on tha southbound train, and had
an hour to go on, but they would not
let -me advance an inch. I hurried
back to the gatekeeper and begged
- him to let me in, for my train was wait
ing, and I pointed to the crowd of ne
-groes and told him it was impossIble
for me to get a ticket. He said he was
*sorry, but he had his orders. I hurried
back to make one more elfort, but a
big square shouldered preacher, with
a back as broad as a barn door, had
*dropped a dime on the loor and half a
dozen were down hunting for it. I
hailed the ticket man, but he never
-heard or heeded me. Frantic, I rushe d
-back to the iron gates, and saw my
train slipping off like a snake in the
-grass, and that oflicial autotnation
would not let me pass. "'Gainst or
ders," he said.
Blackstone says there is a remedy
for every wrong, but there were no
railroads in his day, or he wouldn't
have written those lines. I had no
remedy, and there Is none. Whvo could
I do ? No train for P oil City for twelve
hours, and none from Peoll City for my
* home for twenty-four hours. I was so
tired and so disappointed that [sat
down to ruminate on my valIse. I was
*weak and sad and pitiful, for there is
no disappointment so distressing to me
as being left by a train when going
home. Just then a drummer, God
bless him ! came up and sp)oke to me,
and said, "My friend, [ am pretty
much in the same lix you are, but we

I rose to my fedt: I saw how it was
and that I would lose only one hour in
getting home. In my heart I revived,
and like David whispered, " Bless the
*Lord, 0 my soul." We got our tickets,
and in four hours were inXhattanooga,
where I telegraphed my wife, " Hold

A similar agreement is required of
ill employes of the .ielton mills, of
which Capt. SItIVtI is also the prsI
lent-the only di forence being that
the children are required to attend the
p tIiblie school at ielton," whleh is
said to be a graded and excellent one.
Capt. Smiyth's progressi veness in
these matters is emulated by Mr.
L' wis W. Parker, president of the
Victor cotton miIill at Greers and the

suburbs of Greenville. ThIs latter mill
is one of the linest in the State, but is
not yet in operation. Its- village and
