T)r. Steele's eloquent talfr nt the
First Methodist Church last Runday
evening was more of a lecture than
a sermon, though a happv combina
tion of both ; and the dellht with
which it was received by the audi

well conducted and well selected
series of lectures could be made to

Columbia is wofully lacking In
literary entertainments; or for that
matter in any character of entertain

is a sad commentary, when yon come
to think of it seriously, that In thU
old town, where we have had famous
schools for half a century or more,
and where we have had a hundred
years to build for ourselves Just those
things we most desire, that we find
ourselves entirely without any liter
ary society, any debating club, any
thing to encourage the love of liter
ature or to feed the natural fondness
for literary pursuits.
And the more you think of it, the
more serious it becomes. Are we
not, as a matter of fact, derelict in
our public duty to the youne? Ought
we to allow them to grow up with
out the benefit of the moral and liter
ary training to be derived from good
lectures, when we can so easily pro-
cure for them this most pleasant and

THE CONGRESSIONAL HACK
From the returns received from
the primaries held last Saturday, it
appears that Col. Cox carried the
Bourke Cochran, the great Tam
many orator, once said of Grover
Cleveland, that he was the most
popular man in the country every
day in the year, except on election
day. And it occurs to us that just
the reverse of this may be sid of
Col. Cox In this Cmgressional dis
trict. Pending the campaign he is
the most abused, most censured,
most unpopular man in the district,
to hear his opponents tell it; but he
has a way of rifting the. cloud and
basking in the sunshine of the
peoples' favor at the very opportune
time of plection day.
However, the result of the recent
primary 6hows more an element of
weakness among the other candi
dates, than of strength for Col. Cox.
For the facts are that there are in
round numbers about eighteen thou
sand Democratic voters in this Con
gressional district, and less than ten
thousand of them voted. Practical
ly half of them refusing to vote.
Col. Cox, the nominee, received
only about one-third of the vote cast,
and less than a fifth of the real
strength of the party.
While that is the fault of the
voters for not going to the polls, still
it gives rise to complaint and dis
satisfaction in the Democratic
ranks, and encouragement to the
enemy, and should be avoided in the
future by adopting the Mississippi
plan. In their primaries there,
where there are several candidates
running they require two primaries;
what is called a general primary
first, the two leading candidates in
this, to run the race over just be
tween the two, no new entries being
This district ought to adopt that
pian two years hence. But for this
year, if the canvassing board de
cides that the race has been fairly
made and won by Col. Cox, he is en
titled to and should have the sup
port of the party.
The ladies of the Army Comfort
Circle will have a meeting this even
ing for the transaction of important
business, at which we are requested
to urge all the members to be pres
ent. Unless their plans are all
changed again, the First Tennessee

Manila. Whatever is to done
therefore for "Co. B." must be done
promptly. If any special arrange
ments are to be made for special
care of the sick ; If any patriotism is
to be shown at hon.e for the patriot
ism of those far away ; if any retnin-
der is to be sent them that though
out of sight still to memory dear,
now is the time to do it

the candidate of the Democrats of

the counties of Lewis, Perry and

Ir. Steele's Sermon.
Dr. S. A. Steele preached three
powerful sermons at the First Meth
odist Church last Sunday; in the
morning, afternoon and evening. To
attempt a synopsis now would do a
gloss injustice to the speaker, and
but mar the pleasant recollections
of those delightful hours. No
thoughtful adult person who heard
his morning sermon on the "Cruci
fixion," will ever live long enough
to forget the graphic picture he gave
of that sublime tragedy, the human
agonv of the divine Savior, His God
like forgiveness in the moment of
torture, His loving care of His
mother in the very article of death,
and the awful darkness that covered
the earth when the Son of God cried
it is finished," and yielded up the
ghost. It was a picture sublime in
its heights, horrible 111 its depths,
dazzling in its colorings, graphic in
its description, splendia in Its de
livery, magnificent in its entirety.
His evening discourse, coming so
quickly upon the heels of the morn
ing sermon, sounded like a resur
rection song; the crucified Christ
living in the "Pioneers of Method
ism." Some poet should hear that
story told In the beauty of dic
tion and matchless eloquence with
which Dr. Steele clothes it and im
mortalize himself in verse, it is a
subject we will not attempt. It
must have aroused to its fullest the
pride of ancestry in every Methodist
heart, and should have awakened ;n
the heart of every hearer a deep de
sire to emulate the brave, unselfish,
self-sacrificing example of these
Dr. Steele has made for himself a
royal welcome here whenever for
tune may favor us witli another
visit from him.

will be held in the First Presby

morning. It is expected that all the

night, at 7:30 o'clock. The session
