*T. OLIVE NEWS *
Mt. Olive, Dec. I l.-Dr. C. C. Brown t
said in a sermon once that there are
four personalities in each one of us:
1. The person the world knows.
2. The one our intimate friends
know. f
. The one we ourselves know. C
I. The one God knows. 9
Our notion is that the person in outr
make i) which the world knows is not a
apt to (1o us nuch harm since he is the %
one who receives most of the criti
V
cism and inuch of the abuse. We are
not likely to be lead astray by criti- s
cism. The one our friends know is a t
more or loss dangerous -haracter, be

fluirnced by w rong' advie . (,ilr frierids

and the most daigeious of 'll is tI
t0o 'we 0urselves know. There is but
little reality about him lie is all

himself, never criticves, and seldom
conitisses. The one God knows Is a
reality. lie is without cover or hiding
place, yet difilcult to be seen. Only
God's magnifying glass will enlable us
to see him, so little is he. -Ile may
be great, he may be worthless, only
God knows.
According to the daily newspapers
an old time slavery negro, .lollie Wil
iams, died in Columbia last Friday.
She must have beeii over a hundred
years old as it was said she remem
bered iafayette's visit to Columbia in
1S25; and aided in decorating the hall
in which the great Frenchman wa4 to
speak. These old time darkies, like
the old Confederate soldiers, are
rapidly .passing away. Two years ago
when we came to this place, there
lived on the hill just across a deep
ravine an aged colored couple, 'Jom
and Charity Sullivan. In their young
days oack in the fifties and sixties they
were slaves. Tom could tell many lit
tle incidents that occurred over on
Todd's Quarter where he was reared,.
for he belonged to the late Samuel
Todd, of Laturens. IlEarly this year
these old people moved to Waterloo
where in a few weeks Tom died and in
a very few months 'was followed by
Charity. Very few of these old time
colored servants are found among the
lawless class and seldom have they
tried to lead their race astray. No
doubt there are a few White peoople
still living today who canl remember
many kind wordsl I and pleasing dleedls
of "Black Mlammy," and~ how soothing
were the 01ld time lullabies as she sat
and1( rocked them to sleep. .\any of
the children of those days, it Is said,
would ir at her stayi at homtie .w ith Autil
lbuida than go) visit inig w ithi their own|
Iiarenits. We\. wonder~ somietimes,
whet her t hest faitl oldi1 1( servan ts
