Rev. J, F. Marshall ef McCor
mick, S. C. Tells Of His
Great Revival
Editor of The People's
Please allow me space in
your valuable paper to speak of
} ' our work, well, it has been quite
a while since I have worried
ypu. But I have had such good
meetings I thought I would tell
it abroad. We have just closed
our revival meetings at four
points. The Lord gave us great
success at each church. We be
gan with the Holy Spriug Bap^
tist church, the rain and high
water hindered us greatly at
this church. But we had a good
meeting, ten souls were .saved
and baptized, and fellowshipped
into the church. Rev. W., T.
Taylor of Sumter assisted me at
? this church. He left a lasting
impression upon the minds and
in the hearts of the members,
they said it was the best they j
have ever had. We left Holy
Spring and moved to Mt. Zion
Baptist church. At this church,
(Mt. Zion,) we had the best
meeting, that we have had in 15
years. Dr. Maloy of Greenville
came to us Monday after the 2nd
Sunday in August and preached
every day from Monday until
Friday afternoon, and he preach
ed with power from on high,
and took in one hundred includ
ing backsliders and all. I bap
v '*v -,'tiised sixty seven happy- souls,
and restored 31 to Zion Dr.
Mayloy is the shrewdest reviv
alist I have ever seen or have
had to help me. He charms
the sinners so that they can not
getaway, then he goes up to
them and put's them in his net.
They just cant get away from
him, if they sit and listen to him.
Dr Maloy is one of the best
preachers in the State, or any
where in the United States. He
did me great good at Mt. Zion,
My people were v?--ry much
pleased with Dr. Maloy, more
than they have been with any
one for many years, Dr. Maloy
enjoyed his visits among my
people. He said that it was tjie
bestcountry church he had ever
seen in all of his life. He left
out what he ought to have said,
instead of saying the best coun
try church. He ought to have
said it was the best he ever saw
anywhere, for I do not think
that he. has ever met a better
people anywhere. They are as
good a? any people, they behave
well, they obey orders, they pay
well, they feed well, they dress
w?ll, they are as good looking
people a? you have ever seen
anywhere, and they have their
own horses, mules and turnouts,
their fine carriges, rubber tire
buggies and they are up-to date.
Mt. Zion people or church, is an
intelligent church, they are an
up to date church, no preacher
need be afraid to take Mt. Zion,
at Epworth's, but please don't
bother it yet a while, I want to
. stay there a little while longer
as I have done so much work
there, I would like to enjoy it.
So let me alone, preachers, do
not bother me. I, by the grace of
God-have set out the trees, wait
let me eat some of the fruit cf
the beautiful trees of the vine
yard before you come, (Laugh
^erX'but its:true. We are pre
paring for the Association which
.will convene with the Mt. Zion
Baptist church, October 14,19C9.
We are preparing for a great
crowd, Lord help us to be ready
for them. We have had great
meetings at all of my churches, 10
added at .Holy Spring, one hun
dred at Mt. Zion, 10 at Bethany,
here, 34, at New Hone, so the
Lord has blessed us mightily
this year. 1 am proud of the
old Baptist church, she is mov
ing on slowly but surely and
holding every inch of her terri
tory, and possessing more and
more every year. Move on and
upward old church, and possess
the city, which is this world foi
Christ, then will come the wel
come voice of the great Captain
of our Salvation, and the great
head of the church, say come ye
blessed of my Father inherit
the Kingdom prepared for you
from the foundation ot the
world. God. bless the old Bap
tist church and keep her head
above the wave until He. Christ,
shall come. Amen.
Yours for humanity,

Of Interest tu The Farmers,
Washington, D. G., special^
The farmers of the United State!
are naturally very much iuteV'
ested in the census of agricufc
cure and farms that will be tak
On April 15, 1010, as one of the?k
subjects to be covered by the'^
Thirteenth Decennial Census.
Many are showing their inter
est by writing to the Census
Bureau for the purpose of mak
ing comments upon census in
formation regarding agriculture
as presented in the past. The
Director of the Census welcomes
all such suggestions and gives
them careful consideration, as
he is anxious to have the results
of the coming census correspond
as nearly as may be to the de
sires of the people most inter
ested. ? \
In addition to studying carer
fully these suggestions, tlie Di
rector has on his own initiative
requested certain professors of
economics and agriculture of
the more important universities
of the country, and other per
sons who have specialized in
agricultural matters, to come to
Washington for a short time for
the purpose of studying careful^
ly and criticising plans now un
der way. Especially is it desir
ed to obtain their opinion' reta
ti ve to the questions to be asked
and their form, as the results io
be obtained will sb largefy djt

CUIIH ^PTmt.sule experts,
are proving to be of great value,
and il is believed that in couse
quence of this preliminary study
more valuable and accurate data
will be obtained than could oth
erwise be secured. Alter these
special students and experts
have made their preliminary
studies, formal conferences are
held in the office in which the
whole matter of the character
of the schedules and the best
methods of ?ecuring.the informa
tion are thoroughly gone over.
The Department is also seek
ing to secure the advice and
cooperation, as far as possible,
of the officers and experts of the
Department of Agriculture of

This wonderful medicine soon
relieved and quickly cured his

his policy is the best for the Ne

It has undoubtedly been the
rule that "Negro meetings" have
