Interesting Session in
Gathering in the City by the Sea.
, Generous Welcome and Bountiful
Gratifying Progress In Denomina
tional Work During the Year.
Special to The Mountaineer*.
Bound for the " city by tho sea" a
portion of tho mountain delegation
left Oreenvlllo on Tuesday morning.
For their accommodation there bad
been provided by the Southern railway
a special coach wbloh started out with
quite a number of delegates and visitors
to tht, meeting of tho State Conven
tion of BautietB.
Witfh the progross of tho trip con
" tftunt accessions of visitors and dele
gates were mado so that by tho time
Columbia was reachod the " Baptist
couch " was well filled. If tho dcsirod
end could have been attained by auy
euoh action there would havo been
forwarded to the clerk of tho weather
an unanimously signed petition that
ho should favor us with more baliny
weather than fell to our lot on that
day. The rain of Monday had ceased,
'tis true, but tho thick snow-liko
clouds, and tho Ice-covered ground,
supplemented by the chilling blasts
of Boreas, In no degree wore conductvo
'to bodily comforts. In the course of
the day tho clouds brought to ub first
sleet, and then Jupitor Pluvius added
his steady shower of chilly rain, con
tinuing Into the night and the day
following. It was somewhat anomalous,
as tho train moved on, to eee on tho
first of December, fields of cotton from
which the harvest proper had beon
gleaned, but which woro greon with n
second growth of foliage and bedecked
with blooms. But thus it was all
along the line.
The weathor, or some other cause,
retarded progress and when* Columbia
was reached wo woro almost one hour
behind time. The Charleston train,
however, was In waiting, and with our
forces more than doubled wo , loft
Columbia, having as company for near
ly the whole way a heavy rain. Char
leston was reachod an hour bohind
tho schedule time, and as speedily as
possible the delegates and visitors
Bought comfort in tho homes to which
they bad boon assigned.
?TueBday night was 'tho timo lixod
for tho introductory sermon before
tho Ministers' Conforenco, but tho do
lay in the arrival of delegates and tho
bad weather gave an audlenco of so
small a size that that service was dis
pensed with. Dospito Wednesday
morning's downpour of rain, a fairly
? attended and interesting mooting of
the Conference was hold. Rov. J. B.
Parrott wan elected oohatrman and
Rev. J. A. Brown secretary of tho meet
ing. A paper was presented by Rov.
J. W. Perry, of Hartsville, on tho
> " Fatherhood of God," In which the
subject was ably treated under the
three heads of the natural, the ethical
and the spiritual fatherhood of God.
Following this came an exceedingly
J thoughtful and well-prepared paper by
\ Rev. C. P. ErvIn, of Bamberg, on the
' question of tho justice of tho policy of
the State in giving free tuition in its
institutions of higher learning. The
negative of the question was strikingly
sustained In tho paper and its views
were supported in tho discussion which
followed and which was participated
in by Rev. C. 0. Brown, Rev. C. S.
Gardner, R. B. Watson, Rev. I. W.
Wingo, Prof. F. W. Boatwiight, of
Richmond College, and others. The
remarks of Senator Watson*were some
what c^asujrjjrj8ln|frejteJatlon to those
RHU yXtfctfneartfT^ to the
" effect that three-fourths of the students
of Clemson College were up fit to bo
there by reason of non-preparation ;
that the Influences at that Institution
were not good, and profanity was
practiced by about the aboVO named
proportion of tho Btudents. T894&UCD
money he thought, was spent on Clem
son, and under the guise of assistants,
tutors and otherwise it had more pro
fessors than it was entitled to by fuw.
The one item of "incidentals" amount
ed to moro than wau necessary to run
one of the large denominational in
stitutions. Tho State had spont
?1,500,000on " higher education," and
yettnero aro 15.000 white men who could
not read the names on thoir ballots.
The session of the Conforenco closed
on Wednesday afternoon with an ox
baustlve papo?* by Rov. H. C. Buck

the Holy Spirit."
THE) UAPTIST STATE CONVENTION.
The session of the Convention proper
began on Wednesday night with the
Ereaching of tho introductory sermon

1-4. After the sermon delegates were
enrolled and the organization complet

son, of Bonnettsvilio, as president,
vice Rev. R. W.Sanders, who declined
re-election. Rev. G. T. Grosham wuu re

Thursday morning's session was
opened with addresses Of welcome to
the body by Dr. D. M. Ramsey, on be
half of the Baptists of the city, and
Mayor J. A. Smyth, on behalf of the
city. At tho call of the president Dr.
C. Manly mado rosponso to these ad
dresses. Invitations to the body to
visit tho Charleston Museum, tho
office of tho News and Courier and to
go upon an oxoursion around tho rmrbor
on Saturday afternoon were tendered
Tho body now settled down ',o busi
ness, and the loading interest of the
denomination, tho State Mission Board
presonted through Dr. T. M. Bailey its
annual report. Tho report of the
n treasurer showed that $?,024.47 hud
_. had been rocolved and $11,147.73 ex
gended during the year, and that the
k>ard was still burdenod with a debt
Rar. J.|L. Yass, as superintendent,
presented tho fifth annual report of
the Connie Maxwell Orphanage show
ing among other things that thero wore
now one nundred children in that in
stitution, and that about $8,000 bad been
received, in cash and donations, for
their maintenance. This report was
referred to a spcotal committee.
in connection witn tnis work came
the repo t of the president of tho board
of truste f declining to recommend
the present superintendent for ro
election, and requesting that this mat
ter and the revision of the rules for
management of the Orphanago bo re
ferred to speoial committees, one of
which oommlttoes was nominated.
The report el lotted an animated dis
cussion, after which the whole matter
was referred to a special committee,
composed of one member from each
association, Rev. ?. 8. Gardner being
chosen by the Greonvlllo delegation as
A pleasant talk followed In tho in
t-tvsta of' tho American Baptist Pub
lication Society by Dr. R. G. Seymour,
its representative, in which ho spoke
of the Society's new buildings, the
publishing' work, done by It, Its Gospel
; nr* work by Rev. A. J. Diaz, and its i
jf jneral missionary work tn disti but
log literature. A very suggestive
statement As to the great work to be
doue waa mad.e fotho effect that there
were in our country 13.000,000 of young
people and children who were outside
of church or religious inttieneee.
'The report un the Relief Fund for
uged minister!* showed that the inter*
est in that work was growing, and
that twenty-two beneficiaries wero
now being aided by that board. The
report of tho board of ministerial edu
cation showed that twenty-four stu
dents bad received aid. Heretofore
tbls board has been providing for the
support of students for the ministry at
both tho Seminary at Loulsvlllo and
the Furman University. But it was
decided to so ohango matters as to
commit to this board the oaro of the
University students only, and give to
the ropresentativ s of tho Seminary
tho opportunity to solicit direct con
tributions for its Students' Fund on
the floor of the Convention. A very
gratifying result of tbls ohango of
method was soon when, at a later
stage of the proceedings, Dr. Kerfoot,
of the Seminary, presented Its claims
and received pledges for its Students'
Fund, umounting to somewhat more
Tho session of- Thursday night was
devoted to tho interests of tho Sunday
School and of the foreign Mission
work. The report of the committee
on the first subject was presented by
its chairman, Rov. O. L. Martin, and
was followed by a presentation of the
claims of the Sundav School Board of
tho Southern Baptist Convention, at
Nushviile. bv Dr. J. M. Frost, its sec
Rov. C. P. Ervin, of Bamberg, whom
by the grace of tho board of trustoes
of Furman University wo must hence
forth address as D. D., presented tho
report of tho committoo on Foreign
Missions. Tho gift* of South Carolina
Baptists to this cause were pointed
out as boing about one-third only of
what had boon hopod for from them.
Rov. U. li. Mosoloy spoko on tho sub
ject, and was followed by Rov. R. J.
Willingham, D. U., secretary of tho
Fcroign Mission Board of tho South
ern Baptist Convention. In connec
tion with tho Bubjcot the report of
tho ooutral committee of tho Woman's
Mission Society was presented and dis
cussed. Tho body by a rising vote
adopted u resolution to try to raise
$12,000 during tho convention year to
carry on tho foreign mission work and
to pay oil tho debt of the board. Before
tho vote could be announced ono of tlio
delegates began to sing, " Draw mo
nearer, blessed Lord," in which ho
was heartily seconded by tho largo au
dience, whilo standing.
Tho session of Friday was character
ize^ by the report of tho trustees of
Furman University and tho Greonvillo
Femalo College, and the attendant
discussion. After referring to the loss
tho board hud sustained in the death
of Rov. J. A. W. Thomas, who bad
been connected with the board for
many years, tbo attendance at tho
University was stated to bo 165, and
that at the Female College 158, no in
crease in both instances over the at
tendance of tho previous year. Whilo
in tho equipment of tho college a debt
of $3,600 hud been incurred, the inter
est on the debt had been regularly
paid, and 81,000 of tho principal was
expected to bo paid by Juuc, 1307. Tho
pressing domaud for additional dormi
tory facilities at tho college was
strongly emphasized. Tho gratifying
succebs attending tho work of tlie fi
nancial agent, Rev. It. N. Pratt, whs
noted, and tho importance of raising
tho proponed $40,000 for tho endow
ment of tho University was urged.

board bad confered tho decree of U.U.
upon Rev. C. P. Ervin, of Bamberg

Rev. C. S. Gardner, of Greenville.
Dr. Riloy, Rov. R. N. Pratt, Judge
Uudson, and Prof. F. W. Boatwright,
president of Richmond College, spoko
to tho repoit. President Boatwright
said that, if any ouo wished to know
why he was here, he * ?.. . reply, bo
cause he was at Richn >nd College
with Ur. Ramsey, because ho wanted to
hear Ur. Gardner preach, and because
ho wanted to become acquainted with
tho editors of tho Baptist Courier,
which was so prominent a factor in
furthoring tho interests of tho Univer
sity and tho College. Why Baptists
should be educated was urged on tho
ground that they aro tho only people
that do not havo bridles put on thoin,
and as they aro thus turned loose they
ought to learn how to go rightly. The
increased power of tho trained mind
by reason of tho enlarged field given
it by means of the press, whoreby tho
words of tho orator reach many more

Rov. H. R. Moseley referred to his
a'ork in connection with tho building
I of an alumni hah and the difficulty of
enlisting the ol ttudenta in that
work. Ho explained this seeming in
difference as partly duo lo tno fact
that there was an unintentional non
recognition of tho old students in the
appointment of trustoesand professors.
He, therefore, introduced a resolution,
which was after roference to a com
mittee passed by tho convention, pro
viding for such changes in tho charter
of the institutitn as to allow tho elec
tion of tho trustees in groups of five,
the whole number to bo elected tho
first year, but five to hold oflico for
five years, another five for four years,

On November 23, 185G, tho Citadel
Square Baptist Church was organized,
and in commemoration of tho fortieth
anniversary of tho church it had been
decided to hold some special services
during tho session of tho convention.
Tho evening of Friday was partially
de voted to initiatory-exorcises connect
ed with this celobration. Rev. B. L.
Whitman,D.D., president of tho Colum
bian College, Washington, D. C, had
been requested to make an address on
the occasion, and it was tho general
sentiment of those who heard him that
it would have been difficult Indeed for
a better selection to liavo been made.
Splendid In phys"quo, imposing in ap
pearance, iluontoi speech, profound in
thought, Dr. Whitman charmed his
hearers as he spoke of "Our Posses
sions In the Bible." The throo points
made in treating tho subject were
that the Bible was tho divine word of
revelation for illuminating lifo and for
tho interpretation of nature ; that it is
the divine power for salvation, and
that it Is tho divine oword for conquest
Dr. Kerfoot, of tho Theological Sem
inary at .Louisville, followed this ad
dress witli a strong plea for contribu
tions in aid of the Students' Fund of
that institution and obtained as before
said over $1,000. In connection with
this evoning's service, Dr. Kerfoot

appropriately received tho gavel on
tho part of the convention.
Tho roport of tho board of Mlniste
ria' Education claimed attention on
Saturday morning and over $210 were
contributed for that object. A com
mittco was appointed to confer with
the trustees of the Yorkvlllo High
School as to what Is best to be done
with rnforonco to that property. The

A deep Interest mingled with much
anxioty had b?*on felt as to what the
omnibus committee on the Connie Max

report was* made on Saturday morning
and ?vas unanimously adopted, and
oliuohed by singing "Praise God, from
whom all blessings How." The report

exonerated Superintendent J. L. Vass,
and recommended his re-election to
that position until July, 1807, wttu tho
new board ol trustees will cleet for
themselves a superintendent. It so
changes the rules of the Orphanage
that tbo fifteen trustees shall be elected
on the rotation method, five for three
years, five for two, and the other five
for ono year, and upon this method
trustees were named for the institu
tion. Other changes in the by-laws
were also made.
In response to a request from the
Anti-Saloon League, two delegates
from this body wero appointed to the
convention of the league, which Is to
be held. In Washington, D. C, on De

The committee on hospitality bad
provided for a free excursion to the
delegates and visitors. Saturday after
noon was devoted to that Interesting
feature of the convention's stay in
Charleston, and about 2 o'clock a large
party left Accommodation wharf on
tho steamboat Planter. The weather
was line, a bounteous lunch had been
provided and the trip embraced a visit
to historic old Fort Sumter, the jetties
and a jaunt up Ashley river. To many
of the delegates from the uppor coun
ties tho whole excursion was a com
plete novelty, the scenery along the
river something unique, and altogethor
the trip to Charleston's big mill-pond
was a charming episode. And, then,
too, on tho way back a number of them

them went thence to visit tho historic

in the State.
During tho session of tho convention
many of the delegates visited the
museum connected with tho Charles
ton Colloge, and the fine specimens of
tho many curious, interesting anln.als
and other things to be found there were
full of charm and Instruction. But
there, is euch a thing as weariness of
the flesh, and then, too, Baptists some
how got mighty homesick at those
gatherings of the denomination. This
was perhaps the reason why at Satur
day night's session there, was compara
tively so small an attendance. State
Mi8sionB occupied the time, and was
discussed by Rov. O. L Martin and
(well, wo might as woll accustom our
our tonguo to uso the title) Dr. C. S.
Gardner. An InteroBtlug feature of
tho occasion was a sensible timely
talk by Rev. E. R. Roberts, colored,
who is working in connection with tho
Stato Mission Board. Hq stated that
it was tho desire of tho common-sensed
negro to remain among tho white peo
ple of tho South, to whose influence
tho negro owod much alroady and on
whose help and friendly guidance Mb
future good so largely deponded. To
tho suggestion of tho News and Courier
that tho uogroos migrate in a body to
Africa, bo would roply in tho language
of scripture, "1 would rather bo a door
keeper in tho houBO of tho Lord, than
to dwoll in tho tenta of wickedness."
Tho negro, ho said, did not want to
leave and as they were here with us,
ho besought for thorn our continued
interest and help to make them hotter

$100, was takon to ho f n building a

talk on "Religion in tho family."
Memorial services wero held on Sun
day afternoon in connection with tho
report of tho committee on obituaries.
During the conventional year thirteen
heralds of tho cross passed from this
lower sphere of work to their heavenly
home. Remarks bearing on the report
were made by Rov. I. W. Wingo and
Dr. J. W. Perry.
On Sunday night the convention
closed its session to moot next year

STARTING A BALKY HORSE.
Ttio Animal Thinks of Only One
Thing; at a Time.
A skinny, ill-fed, discontented and
anarchistic horso had como to the con
clusion that it had baulod Its load far
enough and that It would defy tho
overbearing master and go no further.
The result was a blockade of tho street,
caused by a balky horso. As Is usual
In such casod a crowd gathorcd lo dis
cuss t ho situation. Every ono took a
hand at trying to lead the horse, but it
pl&tlted Its fore feet firmly and refused
to bo budged. Various suggestions
wero offered to assist Its locomotion,
but few of them wore trlod. Tho com
edian of tho crowd offered the time
worn suggestion that a tire bo built
under it, but it fell Hat and no one oven
In tho crowd was a well-dressed man
in a silk hat and a natty overcoat. He
had observed In silence all the ways
and means for moving tho obstinato
horso. At length ho stepped forward
and said :
"Let mo try. Who's got a pieco of
string?'' A smaii boy went into his
pockets and produced the desired arti
cle, a good, stout length of packing
twine. "Now get mo a short stick and
we'll soon got this horso out of tho
way," said tho man. Tho small boy
also produced a stick. The crowd gazed
stupidly and wondorlngly at tho pre
parations, although those whoso sug
gestions had heon rejected smiled sa
The man in tho silk hat had tied ono
end of the string to tho stick and then
began to wind the other end around tho
horse's ear. Tbe horse hung bis head
and looked obstinato. As tho string
began to tighten tho horso woko up and
tried to jerk his head away. The fur
ther the string was wound the uneaslor
the horso grow. After tho last wind
hud been takon tho stick was thrust
through tho brow band of tho bridle.
The horso wriggled his oar vigorously,
shook Iiis head Impatiently, then his
eyo grow wild and bo began to move.
His will was beginning to woakon.
Suddenly ho stnrted off wagging "his
oar briskly and tho crowd cheered;
"That's tho way wo used to start
balky horses and mules when I was
freighting down in Mexico a good many
years ago. A horso can only think of
ono thing at a time and the string on
his ear takes his attention away from
his balk. It's very simple."?Kansas
A Good Road is a Money Saver.?
Tho best argument for roa'd improve
ment is tho argument of economy. A
good road is a monoy-savor. Move

of movoment Is reduued. Multiply the
cost of moving a loaded wagon on a bad
road by tho number of wagons so movod
in the United States and tho result will
appear in tbo torins of billions of dol
lars. Were every country road in tho
land as smooth as the best roads, there
can bo no doubt that the saving in the
cost of locomotion would amount to a
vast Burn of money each year. The ag

BKOURTARY OLN10Y ON CUBA. \
An Extraordinary Keport by 11 to
Secretary of Stale.
For the fl At time W ithin tho memory
Of old officiaU, tho Secretary of Stute
has made a regular report to the Pre
sident for transmission to Congress,
like the reports of other officials of the
Cabinet. This report was laid before
Congress as an appendix to the Pre
sident's message. It treats of many
details of American relations during
the past year with fbreigh govern
ments that either were not touched
upon at all in the message or were
more briefly treated.
Under the head of Spain, Secretary
Olney has muoh to say in reference to
Cuba, and in his report he sets out in
groat detail the history of the, growth
of tho rebellion, the present evil state
of affairs on the island and other facts
upon whloh the President bases bis
broad statements and conclusions. No
reference is made to a report from
Consul Geueral Leo, but the Secretary
intimates that his information comes
principally from the United States
Consuls, so must bo regarded as con
fidential as to its source. The Secre
tary's estimate of the present situation
is disclosed la a paragraph made after
a preliminary statement of the destruc
tion of tho Industrial resources of Cuba,
"From 'whatever point of view
we regard the matter it is impos
sible not to discern that a ?t?te of
things exists at our doors alike dan
gerous to good relations, destructive
of legitimate commerce, fatal te the
internal resources of Cuba and most
vexatious and trying because entail
ing upon this government excessive
burdens in its domestic administra
tion and In Its outward relations.
This situation cannot indefinitely con
tinue without growing still worse, and
the time may not be far distant when
the United States must seriously con
sider whether its rights and interests
as woll as its International duties, iu
view of its peculiar relations to the
island, do not call- for some deolded
change In the policy hitherto pur
' To begin with, the Secretary makes
it plain that the present insurrection
is far more formidable than tho famous
" ten years Insurrection," which began
at Yara In 18(38. He says that, start
ing in tho samo portion of tho island,
it very oarly took proportions boyond
its predecessor and tboro was assumed
an aggressive phase. Passing tho de
fensive linos of trochus, traversing tho
island from North to South, formidable
bodies of tho revolutionary forces oarly
in tho year established themsehes in
the rich sugar planting districts of
Santa Clara, Cionfugos and Mantazas.
made hostile forays almost in sight of
Habana itsolf, and, advancing West
ward, effected a lodgment in tho fertile
tobacco holds of Pinar del Rio, which
has so far resisted all efforts of the
Spanish forces to overcome. Tho
Secretary says that while, no prominent
Beaport has been attacked by tho in
surgents, a largo part of tho 2,200
miles of soacoast is practically in their
hands, and from its rugged and wild
character Is peculiarly fitted for guer
rilla warfare and affords oasy means of
receiving clandestine supplies of men
Bearing upon tho question of recog
nition of tho insurgents, probably soon
to como before Congress in some shape,
Secretary Olnoy says :
"So far as our information shows,
there is not only no effectivo local gov
ernment by tho insurgents in tho ter
ritories they overrun, but there Is not
even a tangible protenco to establish
administration anywhere. Their or
ganization, confined to tho shifting exi
gencies of the military operations of
the hour, is nomadic, without definite
centres and lacking the most elemen
tary foaturosof municipal government.

Tho Secrotary Illustrates his point
as to tho irresponsibility of tho insur
gents by citing thoir destruction of
American piuuiations and oppression
of American planters who grind cane,
which ho characterizes as acts of
anarchy. On the other hand, he showj
that in the capital cities and seaports
and all parts of the islr.nd with which
tho Unitod, States or its citizens main
tain legitimate normal intercourse tho
Spanish power is supremo, though
often exorcised in a vexatious und
arbitrary way, calling for just remon
strance, and most of tho functions of
government proceed as in Mmo of
peace. Recurring tp his comparison
of this, insurrection with thoso that
have' preceded it, Secrotary Olnoy
makes this significant statement :
"From every accessible indication
it is clear that the present rebellion is
on a far more formidalo scale as to
numbers, intelligence and representa
tive features than any of the preced
ing revolts of this century ; that tho
corresponding effort of Spain for Its
repression has been enormously aug
mented ; and that despite tho constant
influx of fresh armies and material of
war from the metropolis, tho rebellion,
after nearly two years of successful
resistance, appears to-day to ho in a
condition to indefinitely prolong tho
contest on its present line ."
Ho also compliments the tactical
skill displayed by tho leaders of the
Insurrection. "The insurgent armies,"
eays the Secretary, " fairly represent
tho Intelligent aspirations of a largo
proportion of tho peoplo of tho whole
island ; and it is shown that they pur
pose to wage this contest on theso bet
ter grounds of vantage to tho end, and
to make tho prosont struggle a su
preme test of the capacity of tho Cuban
peoplo to win for thomsolves and their
children the heritage of solf-govern
Tho Secretary speaks of the appall
ing phases of tho struggle, such as
ofton appear In contests among the
Latin races of tho Western hemisp
here ; of tho excess and forceful and
arbitrary acts of tbo military ; of the
ravaging of private property, tho
violation of principles of civilized war

this great question is the perplexing
thought that one ago* the mind of the
Christian patriot of to-day. It Is a
moral question and therefore addresses
Itself with tromondous forco to tho
ministry and lay membership of the
Church of Christ.
Alas, we have boon relax, our mem

came bundemon and rented warehouses
to the traffickers in human bouIb.
Without our aid tho State would have
been powerless to pass tho law that
resolved herself into a great barkeopor
and her Agricultural Hall into a State
liquor saloon. Our resolutions at our
conferences, associations and presby
teries defining tho enormity of tbo
evil of the liquor traffio and the propor
attitude of the Cburah has fallen short
of the remedy. They have ouly shown
our inconsistency in failing to ubo our
pulpits, our discipline and our organi
zations solidly against the liquor devil.
If, therefore, as a churcb or as a
citizen simply, wo would repudiate tho
dishonor brought upon us by the State
of which we are citizens, there must
bo an open and declared hostility to
the liquor traffio that means a war of
extermination, at least so far as selling
it for beverage purposes is concerned.
This declaration must go boyond
mere words, resolutions and such like.
Tho church must organizo on lines of
opposition or ubo her present organi
zation and discipline, and work ac
tively against this demon that proves
tho greatest hindranco.' Otherwise
she will .by her silence and inactivity

Gospel especially, do they extend tho

The committee will be charged with
a great burden involving many duties.
They will certainly need tho encour

BILL ABl* N1IOWS HIS AOB,
Graiulcliiltlrcn Bcmlml llini That
Ho Is Growing Old?Ho Don't Ad
I'm fond of children?good children,
and I likosnow, an occasional mild-tem
pered snow, but when they both come
together tho rackot Is appulling. Hore
aro three little grandchildren in tho
house, and ono of thom with a birthday
to celobrato. Thoir grandma wouldu't
lot thom go outdoors and bo wo turn?d
them looso in tho backroom. For
awhile they played very discreetly, but
by and by began to tako moro liberties
and got to jumping elf tho center table
and tho bed and playing circus and rld
ir.g around on tho tricycle and scream
ing like wildcats, and the old dog
joined in tho procession and barked.
Ever and anon tho youngest ono would
get almoat killed and my wife would
hurry In to bo at tho funeral of the hoy.
Sometimes they would send a commit
tee to hog mo for snow and 1 would
have to go out and get a pan full. TIicl
they played hido and seek and it took
both rooms for that and my wlfo had to
help thom find now places. Will they
never got tired and Bettlo down. No,
Yesterday while It was raining my
wife found a three-cornorcd holo In a
window pano in tho uppor sush and sho
began to Bhiver so I thought sho was
going to havo a chill; eo 1 took tho
stopladdor and went outside to patch
the glass. I found a three-corm rod
pleco that covered It nicely and while
I was driving the taeks to faston it the
old ladder careened to ono side and I
fell a wholo quadrant of a circle onto a
fdlo of flower pots. But, liko a cat, I
It on my feet and tried it again. Next,
I went out to food tho old cow, for my
wlfo said sho waB lowing liko bIio was
hungry. I tad to cross some planks that
were covered with ice and before I was
conscious of either ago or infirmity i
was down flat on my back with nervous
prostration. Before I got up I looked
toward tho house to boo if anybody was
looking, but there was no one. The
back of my co.it told on me and thoy
said they wished thoy bad seen me. 1
am too venerable to be bumped about
In theso ungraceful attitudes, but my
fomale folks make sport of me just like
the Philistines did of Samson. I walk
ed down town yesterday to tho post
ofitce and the rude boys snowballed mo
with malice aforethought. "Lookout,
old man," was all tho warning I got. 1 1
don't believe old ago is respected like
It usod to bo. I don't believe tho boys
havo aa much manners. The legisla
ture Is trying to Ox up a reformatory
for young criminals, and that is all
right, but tho parents of the rising
generation should start a little ono in
each family and then tho big ono
wouldent be needed. The main thing
now in raising a boy 1b to havo him
graduate as a good football kicker. So
much Importance Is attached to tho
development of arms and legs that I
think athlotics should havo a place In
tbo curriculum of tho colleges and
when the report of the boy's standing
is sent, to his parents it should contain
his jumping and running and pitching
and kicking record, and this record
should havo weight in fixing the hon
ors. While tbey are developing mus
cle it would bo a good idea to have a
rail-splitting and a cotton picking at
tachment iu which tho farmers' sons
could compote bo as to be ready for
business when tho old man calls them
homo. The up prehension is that great
excellence in kicking a ball will not
moot with proper rewards in after lifo.
If wo slum id have a war and the enemy
should kick balls at us we ought by all
means to bo ready fo** thorn, but as Gen
eral Sanford remarked, "Thoy won't
come at us that way."
Samson wasavory notable athlete and
slew a lion and outran 300 foxes, but wo
havo no lions and foxes are scarce. I've
boon wondering what wo can do with
these athletes when thoy graduate
with all thoir muscular honors and set
tle down among their unpretending
fellow citizens. Bob Fitzsimmous and
Tom Sbarkoy and Peter Jackeon and a
fow others, have monopolized all tho
business in their lino. 1 had a vory
strong darkey once who could get un
der a loaded wagon and hump it out of
a mudhole when the team stalled, but
we have good roads now and don't need
theso strong men.
But raaybo wo old mon are a littlo
jealous over our fading laurels. I was
talking to Oommissiono- Trammoll
about this ball kicking business and ho
said with somo emphasis:
"It ought to bo stopped ; it is a non
sensical business and is dangerous. Tho
colleges have gouo crazy."
But ho brightened up when ho bogan
to toll of his own youthful sportB and
how ho could outrun and out-wrestle
any boy at school.
And Georgo Adair is disgusted, too,
but delights to tell bow far he could
knock tho old-fashioned town ball and
how ho used to get his ankles bruised
and blackonod playing shinny and how
many marbles ho won at sweepstakes.
"I played fair," he said, "always toed
the mark, but there was Jim Jon
kins, who always fudged and cheat
ed, and ho is fudging and cheating
yet. As the schoolboy is so is the
And I bragged some, too, for I was
tho boss at somo things. So maybe we
old men had better take a back seat
and saw wood. Nevertheless, I'm
bound to say the boys have run this
thing in tho ground. BILL ARP.

that Bill Perry had drowned himself.
Mr. Perry was a great sufferer from

Mr. Perry then left tho office and wont
to tbo oreek, on tho track of the rull
road, but on reaching the trestlo turn
ed and came back In tho direction of
town, but soon returted to tho creek.
A school boy saw him walking hur
riedly on tho trestle with his hat off.
On reaching tho middle of tho struc
ture over tho channel of tho creok, he
climbed down carefully to some plunks
nailed about 10 feet from tho top and
jumped off into tho swollen waters
bolow. Tho hoy who saw him gave
tho alarm und a man on tiic public
road ran down tho creok to render
help. Ha succeeded in getting bolow
Mr. Perry, who by this time ? had
passed the public road down tho ereek.
When ho saw Perry he was holding
his head above wator with one hand
grasping a bush and bad his hut in
tho other. Tho man called to him to
hold on and he would help him. Mr.
Perry turned ills head, looked at him
for u moment, turned loose the bush
and sank for the lust time. Parties
with boats and hooks have been drag
ging for tho body all day but up to S:."50
p. m. tho sourch was unsuccessful.
His hat was found 200 yards bolow
whore he was seon to Biuk. Tho creek
was full and tho water ssvift.
Mr. Perry was 46 years of age. Ho
was a cadet at the King's Mountain
Millitary Institute just after tho wur.
Several years ago ho hold the office of
county auditor and was elected clerk
of tho court four years ago. He made
a model clork. Ho was generous and
kindliearted to a fault and was held
in high esteem by all who knew him.
He leaves u wife hut no children.
