TABLE ROOK PICNIC.
Good Crowd----A Good Time
And an Ideal Day and
Plenty to Eat.
J, H. WHARTON TALKS.
Those Present Spent an Enjoyable Day
at an Ideal Place, and Hope
to Spend many more
Last. Thursday was an ideal day
and one long remembered by all
who spent it under the shadow of
Ta ble Rock.
As per announcements pubhl81
ed, betweon three and four hun
dred persons gathered Thursday at.
Table Roclr for a picnic outing.
Nature, in all her beauty and
lovoliness lent a charm to the oc.
clision, and all present speak in
high praises of tho picnic.
The dinner was spread on the
grouba under four majestic oaks,
which have grown and thrived,
and have withstood the chilling
blasts of 120 winters, they having
been brought when Mere Sapllings,
from near ''the pool" and set out
by James Keith.
Several of the crowd ascended
to the top of the- rock and viewed
the landscape over. This is one of
the finest scenic points in the Ap
palachian chain, but we who live
in sight and under the shadow of
the rock fail to appreciate the ma
j'-sty and grandour of God's hand
Aside from dinner the most im
portant event of the day was the
spech of Col. J. H. Wharton of
Vaterloo, S. C., member of the
Railroad Commission, who, after
passing his compliments on the
nice intelligent crowd, pretty ba
bios, beautiful women, magnificent
scenery, fine lands and good crops,
spoke in part as follows, his sub
ject hing "common sense," which
he L.indled in a common sense
way : Among other things that is
not common sense is our way and
style of living; it is not common
sons to live too fast, to try to
crowd too much into one day,
either of work or of pleasure; the
keeping up with and putting on so
much htyle is all nonsemtse, it Is
not comminoni siense. It is not at
all according to the law of God
and natnie to take our b~oys and
girls and force thiemi like hot house
plants, to becom e men and women
before their time, before the na
tural law of deovelopment has had
time to bring thenm to maturity;

avoid the evils and pitfalls that
beset us, and among the great evils
of the human, race are the smoking

Paidl bila reepo cts to the calling
of farming; was a farmer himself;
if the farmers would use comlmonl
seniso, wh ile they were spoken of
as the backbone of the country, if
they would only use their common
sense, they wonuld in reality anad
of a truth be th< backbone of the
c in ty; nothing can live with its
backbone broken, hence they
sh ould stamd shoulder to shoulder
for the good of the country so that
it could live and prosp~er. The far
mer01 has himself to blame foi having
his calling looked (down on; he
must btuld uip hiis own self respect,
and the respect of his calling; why
should his calling be less respected
than that of any other professionl.
It takes good hard common sense
to make a euccessful farmer, whilo
a diploma fronm some third-rate
