THE SUNDAY SCIIOOL PC NI
According to ippointmitent last
Sttiirday was the day for the
Methodist Sunday School Pi'e Nic,
It was given at the rnith spring
at the foot of MaIldin's Moun
lain, two andi a half miles West of
Easley. It wits a gala (lay to the
anxious hearts of Easley, and to
others who had the pleasure of at
t-ending the pie Ie.X
About the hour of' 9:30 o'clock,
A. M., the streets of our very pros
perous little town were alive with
people and handsome turnouts,
who were preparing to go to that
memorable scene of action. Lovely
onvey aniices, filled with still love
lier fair forms made real pictures.
most beautiful to the eye. and
touching to the heart. In fact, our
pleatsalt little village will chl
lenge comparison with anly other
of its size. for t rue female beauty.
The eye of the visitor is attracted
by this beauty, ill consequeice of
which We would not be left A lone
iml our opi)o ion.
The attendance at the pie nic
was good. The members general
ly. of the t wo Sundav Schools in
this place turnedl out well, rech

self* more or less. Of course the
Young man whew impulsive heart

ting charms of the flair forms. felt
more pleasure in the pic nic than
his brother. who is u)aceountably
insusceptible to the bewitching
eyes of' Eve's dtear ida ughters.
The day was spent in severaIl
ways. ;win in mumblle peg, five
huindired, ( we (lont mean that thle
fellow asked her five hiundlre:l t imes
to say yes or no) steal partners,
and~ last,but not least, /ete a /e/e,
were all idulgedl in, The good
ladt(ies had prepared nice baskets
for the occasion anid a delectable
dinner was served . Shortly after
this severial startedl for home, andl
many of the young folks 'rmained1
for awhile longer, but by 4.30
o'clock the groundl was cleared.
The Celebration On Sunday af
ternoon at 3.30 o'clock followed
t he pic nic. It has beenl a long
ime sinice ai large congregation
hlad enljoyed the same kind of an
OCcasion. In fact we don't~ know
that Easley ever befor'e enjoyed
more, the services growing out of
Sundlay School work. Nearly the
whole town felt an interest in the
v.ccasi on, and1( accordingly turnedl
oult. Many were' inl fr'omf the counl
try. The School was addressed

knew what to expect fm t he gen

entertained the large an( appreci
ative congregation most. pleasant

the personal remembrance an1d like

Prof. Woodwar4l who was a
stranger in our midlOt will be so1
no more. Ile blessed our people
with a most extrao'dinarily fine

of the occasion.

Last week the Morris(n t:i ri ff I

was t a ken, a ii t wa s d e fet id i t ( by
a simall mjoritv. t he vote St and
in . 154 to 159. It. is thought that
othe success f the dem1cra tic par
ty in t he next presidentirlI elect -
iOn, is impairedI by the defeat of
the hill. It is a (ulestion, the con
sideration of which, will not cease
until its advocates are absolutelv
whipp(l out. If a new hill is not
int rodIuceed this se~ssion, the same
onle or another will be brought up
at the next sitting of C'ongress.
- eheartily edrethe fol -
lowing, taken from the "Greenville
Daily News," and think the timne
has comec when we should know
whom we sendl( to represenlt us in
our Legislature and Congress:
"T'Ihe peo~ple' of this anld ev~ery other
('ounlty ought to require of t he men
who wantd to represent t hem in G.on.

Make them spe'ak omt. We want mfen
with detlinite' aims ani~ political prlinci
plesIt s bttr to vote for a mantI we
think hasa wrong vie' ws than for a dough

or is afraid to express themvu. 'I'he man
Iwho wlill1 hide or chan ge his priniplijes
to seenlre his election will do [ he same
thing to secnre some other advaunge

the caniidattes talk' an'd make them
talk plainly and may what they expect
