lr. Ilnwthorne't Lecture.
That the people of Columbia ap
preciated the efforts of the ladies of
the First Baptist church in securing
a lecture from Dr. J. B, Hawthorne,
of Nashville, was exemplified by
the large audience who assembled
to hear this famous orator at the
Baptist church last Tuesday even
ing. The theme of his lecture was
"The Great Orators of the World
and to say that his hearers were
thoroughly pleased and entertained
by the superb manner in which the
subject was handled, would but
poorly express the sentiment of
those in attendance.
Dr. Hawthorne began his lecture
by alluding to the superiority of
oratory over all the other arts.
He had listened to the grandest and
sweetest strains of music, that seem
ed of almost heavenly origin; he
had feasted his vision upon the most
magnificent works of man and na
ture until, in his' imagination, he
had been transported to a higher
realm. But he had rather listen to
the magic words of a true master of
oratory for one hour than to enjoy
the influence of all these Begin
ning with Demonsthenes and com
ing down the ages of time to the
present ceutury, he. recalled the
names of those men, who, by their
inspired words of eloquence, had
swayed populaces and influenced
nations. He spoke at length upon
the powers of such orators as,
Henry, Clay, Web-ter, Yancey,
Hill, Orady and other illustrious
men. Bur the climax of his dis
course was reached, perhaps, in his
eloquent tributes to the last three;
and it was at thU point that his au
dience wab imbued with a true sense
of the wonderful oratorical powers
of the speaker. Ho could not, he
said, speak at length about a man
until his character had been finish
ed. But, If he were to name over
the greatest living orators of the
wor d, he co'ild not fail to mention
the names of William Jennings
Bryan, John B. Gordon and Robert
L. Taylor. Dr. Hawthorne closed
his address with some eloquent re
marks on the essentials of true ora
tory. The ladles who had the enteitain
nient in charge should be highly
commended on the excellent ar
rangements for the occasion. And
the uuselflghness of members of this
church, who, by agreemeut, occu
pied the outside pews, reserving the
inner ones for their guests, Is worthy
of special mention. The pulpit was
prettily decorated in potted plants.
A 8 ad Stort,
A cup of unalloyed tin, fashioned
from a mustard can, and hung to
view at the Century Club, tells a
most plaintive tale. On last Friday
night the Century Club's brag whist
team, composed of Messrs. A. B
Rains, R. O. Sparrow, Meade Frier-
son and L. B. Hughes went to
Nashville for the avowed purpose of
humiliating the: Nashville Whist
Team and bringing home with them
new glory and an elegant! trophy a
nue silver cup. liut, alasl alas!
Out of 83 points Columbia s team
scored only 7, and the Nashville op
pone tits took the silver cup in tri
umph. Some sympathetic friend,
however, hung up a consolation
prize a lovely tin cup In the Cen
tury Club. Columbia's team with
their characteristic modesty are
very reticent about the matter, but
a friend has immortalized them In
the following verses:
All of us know of the "Wise Men of
(Jot ha in
Who went to sea in t bowl,"
But of the four wise men of our city,
The tale remains to be told
These four wise ones in their wisdom,
Wishing at whist to win fame,
Sallied forth to a neighboring town
lo indulge in a mighty game
The tale is a sad one indeed,
To von. in v friend, and to me
For though not exactly "sailing,''
These solons were truly "at sea."
The first began to get rattled,
The second most rattled he,
Then the third and the fourth began
To rattle the rattleree.
These men with their greedy visions
ui a oeantiiui stiver cup,
Made but a dismal failure,
And only got "done up"
There's many a slip 'twixt the cup and
So runs the old decree,
But indeed there s Jems a terrible slip
'Twixt 7 and 33.
An enjoyable German was danced
in the parlors of the Century Club
last Monday evening. The follow
ing were in attendance: Miss Min
nie Towler, Eugene Long: Miss
Miua McLemore, Henry Evans;

two terms he held here, was affirm
