What the Colored Folks Sing at
Their Qaaaterly Gatherings.
The Wilmington, Del., Every Evening
describee an interesting negro revival,
recently held near that place. It reads,
n part, as follows:
At the conclusion of the afternoon ser
vices the graveyard ww» t_be scene of on
enthusiastic revival, and resounded with
the shouts and songs of scores of the
brethern and sisters who participated.
Two circles of penitents were formed in
different parts of the grounds, and the
preparations for the exhilarating exer
cises began. Coats, dusters, vests and
hats were doffed, neckties
were transferred to pockets,
and paper collar’s opened. One, more
enthusiastic and demonstrative than the
rest, took a position in the center, and
the exercises began with a solemn weird
sort of chant. The center figure would
sing a couplet, and the heavy chorus
came in on the refrain. The singer*
gradually warmed up to the highest
pitch of enthusiasm, and grew complete
ly absorbed in the work of rendering
the selections at the top of their voices
The excitement increased, the singers
beat the time with vigorous claps of their
hands and swayed their bodies and
heads in unison with the melody. A
hymn which they lingered over longest
11 once I get inside the door
You’ll never find me here n» more.
This was sung with a refrain, the sing
ers jumping into the air after each verse,
and for a moment their voices were
hushed until they could catch breath
again. Continuing in the same meas
ure with another hymn, they wrought
much excitement from its chorus, which
When I am dead and gone
I don’t want no one ter grieve after me.
A strange hymn with which all the
dingers seemed to be acquainted,had for
a chorus: “Another ran:
Dead sea beat np high,
But children of *Jod ;ass through dry,
What’s the matter now.
Don't you wish you were there,
Angels fl/ing through tne air,
Wnat’s the matter now.
Snatches of hyms such as quoted were
sung for more than an hour to the same
tune, varrving in earnestness and pitch
as the singers could*recover their breath
after the violent exercise of clapping,
jumping and swaying their bodies, re
sembling not a little an Indian war
dance. As they grew exhausted in a
measure, they were spurred up by a
minister in charge of each circle and the
singers dropping out after their
exhaustion was complete, but their
places were filled up by fresh
and vigorous penitents without inter
ruption. At long intervals one of the
penitents would express a de:-ire to
pray, and seemingly worn out, the oth
ers would bow in the dust and the
speaker would chant in solemn measure
part of a hymn that he had been sing
ing. Rising, the shout would begin
again with increased enthusiasm.
The revival is described as being pe
culiar to the southern negro, but it has
been greatly modified and is leasboister
ous than the big quarterly revivals ol
slavery days.
Services of a similar nature were kept
up, with occasional intervals for rest, un
til late *t night. The big quarters will
continue through the present week.
The attendance will be considerably less
than yesterday, as nearly all the visit
ors returned.to their homes last even
During one of the shouts a big, fat fe
male rushed into the tent and jerked a
small negro out of the ring in a hurry.
Planting one hand on his shoulder and
gesticulating wildly with the other she
argued as follows: “Now, Mose: what’s
mattah wid you, nigger? You’s breaking
yourself all up for work next week when
you knows you’s got to pay for dat shirt
an dis jersey. Now, don’t you shout no
mo’; hyar me?” Mose heard her.
Another negro woman became excited,
and grabbing a brother by the hand,
said: “Brown, I’se got bizness wid the
Lord.” “Dat’s right, sister,” said Brown.
“Brown, you live in Deleware an I libe
in Pennsylvanny?” You’s right, sister,”
“Ef you dies in Delaware jess report at
headquarters up dar and ask hab Lize
Jonsonarriv, an ef I ain’t daryet dell em
to watch out for me.”
Brown promised ner he would, intro
duced her to another brother and made
his exit.
Shortly after the train arrivals, while
two of the brethren were escorting an
immense sister up French street, she
suddenly threw up her arms and sank
to the ground in a fit. At this neither
of the brothers showed the least sign of
agitation, aud several seconds had
elapsed before one of them drew a cigar
from his pocket and said, “Pete, you
pick ’er up while I lite this cigar," and
Pete struggled with her while the smok
er prepared to burn the weed.
One of the female arrivals was dressed
in a blue catnbrick duster, pink jersey,
yellow skirt and a flaming red sash.
Her escort wore a full evening dress
suit under a linen dnster, and a black
slouch hat. They wore objects of admi
ration from the time they loft the train
until they turned the corner of Front
and Fourth streets.
A disgusted and truly good brother

Fashionable Tournaments.
Tournaments are still fashionable in
Baltimore, Howard, and Carroll coun
ties, Maryland. There was one that was
brilliant in Woodstock, Howard county,
on Saturday last. It was under the au
spices of the Woodstock College. Early
in the morning red-sashed marshals ana
decorated knights rode at high speed up
and down the streets, and multitudes
began to arrive in the trains from the
near-by towns. Later in the day a pro
fession moved to an elevated plateau
half a mile out of town, whare a .flag was
flying. Three arcs, from which the
brings were suspended, stood about thirty
Sfeet apart and were painted red, white
were ranged in parallel rows facing each
Other. arul tile inic.rvßr.ing Sptlee was
the tilling ground. In the carriages
were young ladies dressed in white and
Mother liubbards. The knights were
tastefully dressed in black and white cor
duroy, and most of them wore rtd sashes.
Some had fancy rosettes, and some wore
no decoration. The riding was begun at
noon. Dr. Keene of Ellieott City deliv
ered the charge. It is for woman’s
smiies/' he said, in conclusion, ‘ ‘that
you are here, Sir Knights. Spur,then the
panting sales of your steeds, and re
member that your bravest will crown
the fairest.” The course was one hun
dred yards, the rings were an inch and
a quarter in diameter, and the time to

rest of the afternoon j spent in danc
Bill Nye’s Experience with Horn-
From the Detroit Free Press.
I have made a small collection of wild
western things during the past seven
years, and have put them together, hop
ing some day when I get feeble to travel
with the aggregation and erect a large
monument of kopecks for my executors,
administrators, and assigns forever,
Last fail I desired to add to my rare col
lection a large hornet’s nest. I had an
embalmed tarantula and her porclain
lined nest and I desired to add to these
tne gray and airy home of the hornet.
1 procured one of the large size after
cold weather and hung it in the cabin
by a string. I forgot about it until this
spring. When warm weather came
something reminded me of it. I think
it was a hornet. He jogged my memory
in some way and called my attention to
it. Memory is not located where I
thougtit it was. It seemed as though
wherever he touched me he awakened
a memory—a warm memory, with a red
place all around it.
Then time hornets came and began
to rake up old personalities. I remem
ber that one of them lit on my upper
lin. He thought it was a rosebud.
When he went away it looked like a
gladiola bulb. I wraped a wet sheet
around it to take out the warmth and
reduce the swelling so that I could go
through the folding doors and tell my
wife about it. Hornets lit all over me
and walked around on my person. I
did not dare to scrape them off because
they are so sensitive. You have to be
very guarded in your conduct toward a
I remember once while I was watching
the busy little hornet gathering honey
and June bugs from the bosom of a rose,
years ago, I stirred him up with a club,
more as a practical joke than anything
else, and be came and lit in my sunny
hair—that was when I wore mv own
hair—and he walked around through
my gleaming tresses quite a while, mak
ing tracks as large as a watermelon all
over my head. If he hadn’t run out of
tracks my head would have looked like
a load of summer squashes. I remember
I had to thump my head against the
smoke house in order to smash hiui,
and I had to comb him out afterward
with a fine comb and wear a waste
paper basbet two weeks for a hat. Much
has been said of the hornet, but he has
an odd, quaint way, after all, that is
forever new.

Th© Peculiar Old Mystery!
It was one of the peculiarities of the old-fashioned Doctors that they
never would tell patients what they were prescribing for them. They said
it would do the patients no good to know, and that it would only be grati
fying a foolish curiosity. In order to keep patients from knowing, they
would write the prescriptions in dog-Latin, so that most patients could not
read them. All that sort of thing is now over. Th “.patient wants to know what
he takes. He is weak, and wants to be strong, or he is dyspeptic, and
wants to digest well. Or he has a troublesome liver which he wants to
put to rights. So he takes Brown’s lrcn Bitters about which there is no
mystery at all. This is the best preparation of iron in the world, in com
bination with gentle yet efficient tonics. It gives strength. It builds up
enfeebled systems. It enriches impoverished blood. It removes feminine 1
weaknesses. It casts out debility. It is what you want, and your druggist!
