never has an individuial coic to Spar

into the heartstrings of everyone as
Mr. Sunday has. It -as as if a great
calamity had befallen the city toniglit,
so evi(ellt was the feeling of grief and
sorrow Onl every side.
Singing "Traveling Home" the more
than 8,000 persons were reluetant to
leave the tabernacle tonight as Mr.
Sunday, at the conclusion of his ser

morrow," stepped from the platform
to his dressing room. Previous to that
he had lead the choir in the singing
of the final song and in his accus

to this cheery parting, but tonight as
hundreds realized that the evangelist
was soon to leave Spartanburg, possi

Men and women who had stood in line
for hours to obtain the privilege of

perhaps only time, stood breathless as
he concluded his sermon. It was a few

Week in the (tolln Mairket.
New Orleans, Feb. 12.-Low prices
this week in the cotton market were
madc on the opening session, while the
highest prices were made on the clos
ing session. From the lowest to the
highest, taking the whole list into con
sideration, there was a rise of 24 to 91
points. Gains were moderate, but well
sustained. At the highest the active
positions iwere 64 to 109 points over
the close of the preceding week,
whilc at the lowest they were 10 to
39 over. Closing prices showed net
gains of 72 to 104: points. March
traded up to 16.97 and closed at 16.93.
In the spot department prices gained
50 points on middling, which closed
at 16.75 cents a pound against 12.75
on the close of the same week last
A better feeling in the spot depart
ment, more demand and smaller offer
ing helped contract values consider
ably. On top of this were the unfav
