It is interesting at this time to com
pare the recent utterances of President
Roosevelt and Senator Iloar on the
negro question as it affects the South.
Both are of the North and the Republi
can party. one the President of the
United States and the other represent
ing Massachussetts in the UInited States
Senate, and one of the recognized lead
ers of that. body.
President Roosevelt, in a letter to
llon. (lark Howell, editor of the At
lanta Constitution. discussing the mat
ter of his appointment of negroes to
otlice in the South says:
In making appointments 1 have
sought to con ider the feelinjr of the
peonle of each locality so 1ar as 1
conud consistently do so' without sacri
ticing princitmle. 'T'he nrime tests I
have applied have been t ,Ise of char

Cob. Tfillmnan has bteen refused bail,
we believe right and justly. Ibis attor..

further att'mpt to secure bail will be
made. Th'le ease will n'ow go betore a

the rounds to the effect that Tfillman
should not be shown more cons5idlerationi

of carrying the matteir too far. TPrue,
he should not be shown more consitder
ation; nor shotld he be given less.

had a very excellent sermon preached
by our pastor. Rev. .1. .1. Long, from
Daniel 5:27. lie gave sin an overhand
ed lick with a sledge, putting it right
where it belongs. 'There's are many call
ed but few chosen.' sayet.h the word of
God. We believe that RIev. Mr. LAng Is
one among the few whom God has
1:alled to spread his gospel, and we are
proud to say that he has commenced a
good work among us. We hope and
t rust that Color.; congregation will
have a little more than Sunday preach
ing only twice a month at least this
year. if you think that we are as good
as we ought to be, dear brother, just
let us alone. If not, stir us about. Rev.
ir. 1.ong was with us a night at our
home not long since, and we were glad
to have him with us. lie is a goc I pas

plish much goodk in this respect. Come

An Interesting Letter From an Iix-New
berrian, Now a Resident of Texas.
The Days of "No More."
My thoughts turn back to days that
are no more and voices call to me that
I knew of old.
"0, sad No Morel 0, sweet No More!
0, strange No More!"
I hunger for Newberry and long for
the sound of her vanished voices, for I
have a mellow feeling for the land and
the people.
At midnight I heard a loud voice
calling for Pierce Lake. I took no no
tice. Next morning I found it wag
.lack l-nlow, who had fallen into a cat.
tie guard, near my house. Jack was a
kindly. good natured fellow. 'Tis said
that "Auld Nick enters into a fellow
when he opens his soul with whiskey";
but Jack was not of that sort. But,
''le was lively, he was" mellow,
And a bibulous old fellow.'
He was an ardent admirer of his
neighbor, that excellent citizen, Col.
.lno. P. Neel, and when in his cups,
after many laudatoiy speeches, would
wind up with (speaking of Governor's
review of :3th Reg nent) the remark,
''The governor reined his beost around
and said ('ol. Neel was the finest officer
on the field." According to Jack's
idea, to attempt a higher compliment,
would be like trying to add a new color
to the rainbow.
In the days of ' No More" the young
sters crowded around the brick hotel to
see the stage coach arrive. The Co
luilbia coach is due; one Jones, a stout,
red compl'cted man, is driver: as he
reac hes the hill at E. Y. McMorr;s' he
:Io: rishes his whip, gives a blast on his
:gie. in grand style dashes down the
stree:. wi,h a rattle and roar of wheels

think him a grand man, and each one
.i:xios to be a stage driver. Ask

and( Mrs. Thos. II. Pope, each possessed
of high intellectual gifts, returning
from church, Mm's. Pope commended
Grimes' sermon. Mr. Pope said lie
wvould readl it to her when they reached
home. It was one of Blurder's village
see'mons. Granville was wise, andl
many others would do well by follow
ing his examp)le.
Diagonally across the street was the
residence of that pure man, Chancellor
Caidwell, and his excellent wife and
family. I lovingly remember their
talented son, H1. H1. Caldwell, who was
making a fie reputation as a poe.
Amiable, intellectual, refined, he has
crossed to the other shore, and with
his warm friend and comianion, Col.
Geo. S. Jameg, is enjoying the bright
niess of the Redeemer.
)own the red hill we go, passing by
a beautiful grove oi the left where
Mrs. Vashti McCracken and her sons,
Tom and Jaek, lived.
At the edge of town (a virg'n forest,
as I first remember) was a dwelling
built and occupied by John Hlolman.
lie was a useful and energetic man.
Here also lived Maj. J. B. F. McMor
ris and his lovely wife, Amelia (Pratt).
A fterwards that adl-round, good and
righteous man, )r. W. W. McMorris
and his excellent family, lived there.
Mrs. MeMorris was a remarkably in
telligent. lady, and was the sister of
those energetic and progressive men,
Jim P. Joseph and Wilson Caldwell and
the mothcr of my good friend, J. C. S.
Brown. I never knew a man of more
intelligence, sound judgment, and real
worth, than Jos. Caldwell. Crossing
the creek and ascending the hill we see
on the left liolman's overshot mill.
The water at. first unkindly refused to
run up hill, but, liolman afterwards
controlled it.
Once. -1 little chap. I was going up
that hill. At the top on the left, was a
stump. I imagined it was a lion or a
bear. I could see its head wagging and
its tail lashing. Like Pat. I thought it
"better to be a coward five minutes
than dead all the time. " I didn't "whis
tle to keep my courage up." but like
the little darkey, "1)en I pick up my
foot and nebber stop run 'till I be at
the creek."
On the hit her side of the Black Jack
was a beautiful grove, and here I)aniel
Blaker, in 1S:1, held a protracted meet
ing. lie was the grandest of all Evan
"le stood the messenger of truth.'
"Hlis theme divine salvation alone
through the Son of God." What a
beautiful thing is this religion. With
burning love, tiaming zeal, tender con
pa'sionl and a ut"elting heat t, he urged
all to accept Christ as their personal
friend and Sauiour, and many accepted.
On Sanaav. full of ire and pathos, he
preached in the Baptist church and
hed the vast congregation in silent awe
ami prayerful attention. S+nce writing
the foregoin. I have obtaii ed a copy of
his '.:e and labirs. He visited New
be.r.te sec : i :me in 1S54. In a

He as -i a. :'. voung converts and
"-,1,.:a-: s t eree: him in the lecture

Chancelor Jonnson wi an elder, he
wa= vireid in. When he beheld the
seerhs heat t melted; he attempted
cr.cte to) speak. and did say someC touch
ing things. but his feelings overcame
him and he wept aloud. One of his sous
Silasm was present. The Chancellor
are him one hundred dollars for Aus
in College, (Tcxas). An incident:
While with eloquence and zeal he was
~xhorting, the pe'nt up em-otions of the
iudience burst forth audibly. lie raised
iis hand and said: '"The Lord is in his
loly Temple: Let all the earth keep
silence before him." 'Tis naid 20,000
.vere converted under his preaching.
[n Brownwood, Texas, there is a Pres
>yterian college named Daniel Baker
n two blocks of my youngest daught
3r (Mrs. Carrie McCartney's) home.
This time i'll pass the Black Jack
and on to the gum spring wvher'e Win.
Welch built, an(d which was afterwards
occtpied by his brother Williams. They
were from North Carolina, and full of
energy, pluck andl excellent judlgment.
William was a restless, good man,
whose memory is dear to me, for he
was wondirously kind to me. Williams
was a kindly, manly man, of a gene
rotus, imp)ulsive nature, They must
have Lakent for their gulide the motto
Phil Schopert hadl over his carpenter's
sho0p, "'By indulstry we thrive."' I dlon't
know that Phil followed it closely, for
there wvas a golden thread of great fun
andl practical joking running through
him. The appleartance of Williams is
dlistinctly phot.ogral.1 t' on my mindl;
he always appIroachedl me with his head
a little awry, and( a1 kindly smile on his
face. Ilis wvife was a Glaisgowv, t.he
sister of ,Irs. Isaac Kellar', and was a
lovely ladly. The Glasgows were a
large, intelligent, influential, religious
family. They were Scotch Irish.
