The Religious "Herald."
Messts. Editors,?We close today a gra?
cious revival meeting that has been going
on for three weeks. Our pastor, Bro. Wil?
lis L. JVayts, Las been doing all the
preaching, and closes seemingly as fresh
as when he commenced the meeting. Bro.
Wayts is a live, energetic, Godly man, and
a preacher of real ability. He does not
wait for things to "turn up," but goes
ahead and "turns things up." We all
love him and his cultured, consecrated
wife very much, and feel that we have one
of the best preachers and pastors and pas?
tor's wives in the State. We praise God
for sending these godly people to this
field, where they are so badly needed.
The results of the meetins are very sat
isfaclory, and are as follows: Twenty pre
fessions, nineteen addeJ by baptism,
two added by relation, and several restor?
ed. We have had in all thirty-two addi?
tions to our Tazewell church since Bro.
Wayts came, three months ago. This is
the best work ever dene in Tazewell for
the Baptist cause in the same length of
time since our church was organized, in
1SS9, and we are greatly encouraged.

everything I could hear of?consulting a
specialist in Baltimore, etc.; but could see
no improvement until, by advice of my
physician, 1 went to your Alum Springs.
I must confess I had no faith in it. But

one month I left so much improved as to
go home and take charge of my business
again. Now, after a period of nearly ten
years, I have felt no return, and feel Bure

Filipinos Imitate the American Wan
Cry and Then Beat a Hasty
A private letter from a bugler In Gen.
MacArthur's command In the Philip?
pines to his mother in Chicago relates
a laughable incident about the Filipino
method of warfare. The story of Col.
Funston's several advances, and his
wonderful command over men, seems
as well known there as In this country,
says the Chicago Inter Ocean.
When, shortly after the fall of Calum
plt, Gen. MacArthur sent a detachment
against some insurgents who had
thrown up breastworks on a shrub
covered hillock, the Americans crept
forward just before dawn, and while
a heavy rain was falling. With the first
gleam of daylight they rose to their
feet and ran forward silently until a
hurried, nervous discharge of musketry
told them they were discovered. Then
they yelled, and fired, and redoubled
Suddenly they heard the Filfffno
commander cry out, in fairly good Eng?
"Come on, boys?give it to 'em!" At
the same time abandoning the position,
and retreating at a dead run.
The bugler declares the "slogan" was
as effective in a Filipino camp as in an
American?only in quite a contrary
manner; "for they no sooner heard
those words?which our officers most
always employ?than the last beggar
of them hopped out of the intrench
mcnt, and skurried away."
"This," concludes the soldier, "is in
line with the general Asiatic habit of
doing everything 'backward.'"

Though only a frail creature she sud?
denly developed an abundance of en?
ergy and resolved to earn her means of
living by following the same occupa?
tion as her father. As a step towards
the purpose she addressed a letter to
the German emperor, asking to be al?
lowed to wear men's clothes, which
would enable her to overcome all diffi?
The emperor's answer was encourage
lng enough: "She would be granted
the privilege of donning male attire
conditionally upon the assent of the
burgomaster of the village."
The girl's hopes were high when she
went to see the village potentate to in?
form him of the emperor's reply. But
they were doomed to failure, for, alas!
the burgomaster did not see his way to
grant her urgent request.
"Be could not ehe his consent." ho
explained, "to such a shocking thing,
which would be most dangerous to the
morals of the community over which
he had the honor to preside."
