Fer Oiled Streets.
Numeroue comments were heard all
over the city yesterday on tho fact
that the dust along tbe business
streets of the city is so very heavy.
The business houses are unable to
protect their goods and people living
along Main street have to keep their
windows closed to prevent the dust
from covering every piece of clothing
in tho house. It is the common opin
ion, voiced on every side, that tho
crater wages Is inadequate and '.hers
Is a general demand that the streets
be oiled, until th?y csa bo paved. It

Is. a, secondary consideration when it

THE LESSON FOB !
PREPARED BY DR. Z. T. C(
Luke IC: 14. 15, 10-31.
The Pharisees, who were very covet
'?us. took much offense at Christ's doc
trine of wealth. We saw that our Sa
viour taught that money was a trust
from (Jod and that as Uta stewards,
men should use lt to make friends for
Christ and do no by using it for the
henefit of men. if this doctrine was
practically carried out, much less
money would bc spent in personal a"
grandizement and more in all those
ways Which are for the saving, better
ment and development of humanity.
There would be lisa profita coining io
the rich and larger wages to the la
borers. Perhaps the landlord's house
would not bc so lino, and perhaps the
laborer's hoes? would be better.
It was a doctrine like thia which the
Pharisees ?corned. What they bf
Mi-ved in waa wealth used for personal
cuse, rower and gio' '. Of" course,
arong With tuen ease went the run ot
the laborer or slaves who made the
wealth and the misery of those whj
CLUld get Ito work or who w ?rv um.Ide
to work. But the Pharisees did not
care for these. He looked on the con
dition as a proof that they were suf
fering from the displeasures of a
righteous Cod, and he looked on tho
display of thc rieb. man aa a signal
proof of God's favor upon him. It
wag to this state of mind that Christ
spoke in Hie parable ol' Divis and La
ania . ll contains the most terrifflc
utterance that wau ever spoken
against godless wealth.
The parable ia too familiar to need
recounting. Two scenes are given, au
earthly and an eternal. In the earth
ly scene there are brought together
great wealth and luxury on the ono
side and the most abject poverty on !
the other. According to the popular
conception of tbat time this rich man
had every I;1, v",. that hr. "as tan '
favorite of heaven and thc poverty o?
thc poor man gave proof to all that1
God himself was against him. But in l
the eternal scene thera was a change! I
Thc poor man had angels to- carry him
even to Abraham's bosom. That is,
they carried him to the great feast in
Paradise and placed bim on tba seat _
or couch of honor at Abraham's side.'
And the rich man who has enjoyed
such luxury on earth lifted up bis
eyes in hell, being in great torment'.
He plead that Lazarus be sent to oase
his misery somewhat, but he was told
tbat his days of ease were over, in the
world he had; enjoyed plenty, whll ;
Lazarus had his.'hardships, but that
now things were' being evened up;
besides they were separated by an Im
passable gulf-, and neither could como
to thc other. The rich man.seoing
the hopelessness of, his owp situation,
turned h|s thoughts to hi J brothers,
bis rich, brothers, who were living,
With, whom the cas?' was not yet hope
less, but who vperc^livlng in. the error
that .bad Rp htlridiul' hito: ?mi? ht* now
picada ?Lli??^ahS?^'tfli send Lazarus
to them tn. wA*a.?q$m. But he waa
told that if thesfe "brothers were not
warned and instructed' sufficiently by
Moses* laws they ereu?d nbt be con
vinced hy one from thc eternal world.
1. The parable must not bc pressed
too far. lt is only ta figure of speech.
It !? not a hietory^ lt lu not a kodak
view of the other world. It was made,
not seen: and mada.to teach some les
sons. The detalloowere shaped so as,
to teach those lessons mest powerful
ly. For instance, the seeming close
ness of the saved and the lost to each
other in this parable and the conversa.
Hon of Abraham and Dives, were not
Intended to teach. I think, that such
ils actually the case.in the other world,
and that such conversations take
place. These details were arranged
so as to make powerful things Abra
ham said to Dives; and again because.
Dives spoke pityingly of his brothers
is no Indication that lie was getting
batter ir. heart rjr* ? ?"??ta ?H?IWL
while come to where God could take
him out or Hades. But tbat touch
was added in order to bring out the
fact that hui brothers already . had
enough of that hopeless case if they
would hear Moses.fri I
2. The parable)! teaches not what
doss happen, hutu what can happen, ,
that ls so far as tho rich and the poor
arc concerned. It does not mean for
us to understand that every rich per
son has his fate, and that every poor,
miserable person.: at death, ls carried
to Paradise. The. Pharisees thought
that every rich man, because he was
rich, had evidenoe<of acceptance with i
God; and that groat poverty itself was
th ? frown or God. Itt answer to this,
our Saviour, pictures to himself Ute
two classes that stand before God and ,
he draws the picture with tts two j
ttC?il?o lu both WOtius BO mS to brl?g
out the reality In contrast to apnear -
ancj. The world) ls the appearance. ,
The scene in the other world shows
the reality of how the two ran ?land
before God. Now how thia or that rich
or poor man do e stand before God ,
is another Question. Many a rich
man goes to beaven when he dies. Ab
raham waa an immensely rich man, ' i
and we see from.Anis parable that he i
was In Paradise. ; M But riches do not
commend a man . ta God and are not ?
necessarily a sign of God's smile. |
Poor men can bur lost and it is to be
feared that some are lost.
a. The parable- teaches what God !
now tn thia pressait wor?d. thinks of
the godless rich and the pious poor, \
And if God thinks tht?s of them now,
and here. God does nov want men to'j
think otherwise of them. No man i
who toadies to tito rich or despises the
poor thinks God's-thoughts after him." ]
All leglslstsr** who. want to resister n
God's will In goad tm will work to !
im prov .i the Condition ot the poor and , i
also, (ir not, why not?) he will legis
late as to make luxury a shame.
.?. The PEr?b??t brisks, cut sonic i
things that CbHei certainly believed ' i
about Eternity and Gie other world. I
These for Instance. (1. Aneen come :
for those who are his and bear them ?
(AT 17, IUI4.
)DY IN HAITI ST COURIER
to their home; (2) Men immediately
after death enter into joy or Borrow;
lhere is no Hleep until the resurrection
(3) That the wicked KO into unbear
able punishment ; (4) That there is
change for the bett ;r possible for
those who are lost; (5) That life and
and this life alone is the time for
repentance; (6) That Cod has done
all that ia necessary here and now to
lead men to repentance and If men re
ject Moses, and now, Christ, his cross,
his gospel and his church, it is not
possible to arouse them; they would
not repent if the dead arose and told
them .,, do so; and (7) There ia no
such place as Pergatory.
.">. Our Soviour recognizes in th?sa
parable? the principles of compensa
tion. Eternity will even up the in
equalities of time. This principle has,
been sneer ed at, but it can stand more
than sneers so long as it cnn point to
6. There lu certainly that In this
parable that warns men against rest
ing in luxury anU wealth. Such a
state has th-? power of deceiving a
man so completely that thc gospel it
self cannot get any sense in his heart.
7. Charities become fixed and in
eternity this fixity of character is un
changeable. No man will ever cross
over the gulf between him and they
other, whether that other be above

Col. Cannon Waa Representing a

In Magistrate's Court
It was Jos. C. Sullivan und not

Laurens bar and one of the best known
citizens of the county and State was

Joseph G. Sullivan, son of Thomas
J. Sullivan, and a prominent young
farmer of;the Tumbling Shoals section.
Mr. Cannon was shot five times, four

Thc tragedy grew out of a case
brought in the magistrate's court by
Mii:s Maude Sharp, teacher of the Mt.
Bethel hchool in Sullivan township,
against Humbert Sullivan, aged 18,
a pupil of Miss Sharp and a brother
of Joseph G. Sullivan, the slayer of
Humbert Sullivan waa charged with

today before Magistrate Hellaras of
Dials township. W. R. FJchey, Sr..
of the Laurens har > represented tbe
A number of witnesses for both
sides, testified, including a sister of tho .
defendant, \fter ascertaining that Miss
Sullivan vas. a' sister of the-defend
ant. Mr. Cannon, ls said to haye asked
helvto "come down." Exception was
taken to thia by opposing 'counsel and
Mr.- Cannon disclaimed any intention
of reflecting on whatever ehe might
have testified to. Thus the Incident
Mr. Cannon made the opening and
closing arguments ami is said.to have
excoriated the conduct of the young
defendant In no uncertain terms.
When the jury flied'out of the.de
pot omce, where the trial was held,
Mr. Csnnon stepped out into the de
pot yard. He was approached hy a
patron of the school who complained
that the attorney had ia his,speeches
reflected on the character of his son,
om of the principal witnesses for the
defense. Cannon ls said to have re
plied that he sought only to bring
out the trath .and had no apologies
to make, whereupon Mr.. Wood, the
patron, turned away, saying he want
ed an apology or. trouble.
At this instant, it appears. Joseph,
G. Sullivan took up the toKtusv and
told Mr. Cannon that he had disgraced '
bis brother and the Sullivan family,
and ' '.hat Mr. Cannon made certain
derogatory statements '.'bowing they.
were Hep. Mr. Cannon resented thia
and struck Sullivan on the head with
