Great Meeting at Easley
The protracted meeting at Easley
conducted by Rev. Mr. Danner is
attracting large crowds and much in
terest is being manifested. Mr. Dan
ner is a born evarigelist. - The Lord
seems to have called him to that special
work. He is a bold, fearless preacher.
He believes in a heartfelt religion.
The meeting makes one think of an old
time Methodist camp meeting, before
people became too proud to kneel at the
altar and ask for the prayers of Chris
tians, and when people were not ashamed
to shout when the spirit of God moved
upon them with power. On last Sun
day afternoon 0. K. Mauldin, Esq., of
Greenville, a young lawyer who was
recently converted, made P great talk
to men and about forty men -ve their
hands to live a better life. lr. Mauldin
is a man of powerful intellect and if he
should decide to enter the ministry he
would doubtless be a great preacher
and accomplish much in the Master's
cause. May the Lord guide him. H.

custom of holding up little children te
look into the colln. It always exciteF
children and makes them nervous. A

be here Thursday, the 22d, coming here
from Greenville, where they speak on
Wednesday. The campaign opened In
Spartanburg Tuesday of this week. The
speaking will take place on the court
house lawn, as has been the custom

begin about 10 o'clock. The candidates
will arrange the order 'of speaking

to tell who will "start the ball rolling
and who will stop it."
The greatest interest centers in the
race for governor. Five candidates
have filed their pledge for this office
