FEELING THE HALTER "1MIAW.
The Greenwood Journal ls wrought
up ovtor the fact that it is said that
Columbia is against Governor Man
ning. Our neighbor should remem
ber the saying
"No criminal ever felt tho halter
With good opinion of the law."
Colombia, along with other cities
accustomed to doing as they please
ls feeling the "halter draw" Just now
In Governor Manning's strict enforce
ment ot tho law. Doubtless there arr
many in Charleston who arc Indulging
in bittor invective against Govcrnot
Manning, Just aa there are many in
other cities' who feel tho same way
about it. %vr
The editorial comment of thc
Greenwood Journal follows:
News has reacher Greenwood that
all Columbia is against Governor
Manning. No oouot thia ls in part
true, and it is a compliment to him
rather than to his discredit. We ex
pect that the blind igers and the
lawless element of Columbia as well
-aa the officers who do not care to do
their duty are against him. All thc
people who want a wide open town
along with the gamblers nnd cut
throats are nut at all admirers of a
man like Manning. But there arc
any number ot people in Columbia
who are standing right by him. and
rejoicing that the day lias arrived
when South Carolina is so fortunate
as to have a governor who is not
'satisfied with tho mere promise of
enforcing the law, but who tells the
mayor and pollce force in Columbia
"What I want and what J must have
ia the enforcement of the law, and
when one department falls to do thu
T Bhall call on another. Gentlemen
the laws mrfst be enforced. I shall
not be satisfied with mere statements
that they ?re enforced when I know
that there ts vlolaion of tho laws."
Wo should not be surprised to
hear that Charleston was against the
governor also. No doubt the mayor
of that city who wanta a govern
ment all unto himself does not ad
mire a roan of Mr. Manning's candor
and honesty of purposes. But thora
aro people In Charleston as in Co
lumbia who do admire him.
Anr* we have some people, oven in
Greenwood, who aro not in love with
a man tike Manning. They could
not bo expected to be. How can the
lawless like the man who wants to
make them behave themselves? It ts
a, compliment to Mr. Manning, and
as for that to any other man, to have
people dlsliko him. We ourself glory
in tho standing that we have with
some people. It makos us rejoice that
wc are worthy of such consideration
at their hands.

Scripture Lesson- Samuel 16:4-13.
Golden text-1 Stfmuel 16:7.
Lesson? From the Lesson.
Some places are made famous Ly
the characters they produce. The
scenes of our present lesson were en
acted at Bethlehem, the home of
Jesse thc father of David. Jesse's
family belonged to the tribe of Judah
and were direct descendents of Boaz
and Ruth. Many precious and pathetic
memories arc connected with Bethle
hem. Here was the scene of Jacob's
great sorrow, the death of his belov
ed Rachel, whose grave is still mark
ed by a little white-domed mosque on
the Old Jerusalem Road. To this vi
lage Ruth came from far off Moab's
Mountains and here she blenmed in
the fields of Doaz, not only gather
ing sheaves, but winning her way to
the heart of her kinsman who after
ward became her husband. David was
the great-grandson of Ruth and it
was his name, that made Bethlehem
famous. A greater one than David,
however, was born here.
"O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee ile!
Above thy deep and dreamless Bicep
Tho silent atara go by;
Yet In thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting light;
The hopes and fears of all thc yearB
Are met In thee tonight."
Obedience is tho test of high and
holy character. "And Samuel did that
which thc Lord spake." Samuel had
been rejected because of his disobedi
ence. Por a time even after his re
jection, he was permitted to act In the
capacity of king and God bad already
selected another and commanded
Samuel to anoint the Divinely select
ed successor of Saul. This was not
a pleasant task that God assigned to
Samuel. To discharge it meant the
incurring of the hostility of Saul. To
obey God's commands is not always
pleasant or popular, but it ls tho only
safe course. Obedience had been the
guiding star of Samuel's life; it was
too late to deviate i.?\>m lt now.
"I'll go where you want me to go,
Over mountain, or plain, or sea;
I'll say what you want me to say, dear
I'll be what you want me to be."
Heart power ls the Divine measure
ment of manhood. Tho Lord looketh
on the heart." Even the prophet was
ready to accept Eliab, with striking
countenance and stately stature, as
the Lord's anontcd; but he measured
by the wrong standard. Great spiri
tual and moral tasks must be commit
ted to iden of great heart-power.
Greece measured the head, and Romo
measured the body; but God measures
the heart. Jn purity Mt* the secret of
"My strength ls as tho strength of
Because my heart is pure."
It ls the heart that makes possible
tho great spiritual visions. ''Blessed
are the pure In heart for they shall
seo God." Evil clouds the vision, but
purity clarifies it. To Sir Galahad,
tho spotless Knight ot King Arthur's
Round Table, alone wps given the
vision ot the Holy Grail. The Divine
calls usually come to Ute busy man.
"Behold, ho keepeth the sheep." Gid
eon's call to deliver Israel came
while he threshed wheat. It was
while the shepherds watched their
flocks by night, all seated o. the
ground, that thc angel ot the Lord
carno down and glory shone around.
The first disciples were called from
their nets and boats to follow thc
Christ and become fishers of men.
Matthew waa at the receipt of custom
when discovered by the Christ and
called to greeter service.
Our own capacities and aptitudes
must bo supplemented by the endue
in ont of the Spirit nf God. "And the
ftpfrlt of the Lord came upon David
from Out day." Standin? on tho
banks of the Jordan and under the
Mun heaven, tho Master experienced
til? Baptism of Power by the descent
of the Spirit: He said to Ute Dire!*
plea, "Ye shall recelvo power, the
Hoi.- Spirit coming upon you, and ye
shall he my V:,r,sa8es, both in Jeru
salem, In Judea, and In Samaria, and
unto the uttermost part* ot the earth."

MISSIONARY WORK IN FRANCE
The Council baa maintained two
deaconesses in the Houma Mission
this year. Houma is the center of the
richest country of the United States
the "Sugar Bowl ot America," it is
called. Only four hundred square
miles of this land ls under cultiva
tion, while one hundred and forty
nine thousand people get their .tving
there. It is, perhaps, the most dense
ly settled rural section within the
United States. In all the Protestant
Churches combined there are not
more than one hundred thousand
white Protestants, leaving ninety
nine thousand people as much un
evangelised aa any other section con
trolled by Romanism.
The mission &t Houma was opened
clx years ago, when Rev, C. V. Brelt
haupt and bia wife were sent there
by the Louisana Conference. One con
gregation had been organized at La
Fourche Parish, with some fifty ad
herents or probationers, a short time
before he went there. Now there are
nine congregations or communities,
to which this pastor, two deaconesses,
one assistant French pastor, one lo
cal, preacher, and five exhortera min
uter. These French - workers have
been converted and gotten to work In
thtje six years.
Miss Iles, our first deaconess there*
has had charge of the country work
this year, while Miss Kate Walker
has worked i?. the town of Houma.
There are r ighty miles of ibis rich,
densely populated section along Ter
rebonne Bayou, where one never-gets
beyond the eight ot houses or people,

these French people hive bought
