Another Installment oi Interesting
Camp Ground Reminiscences for
the Intelligencer.
And How It Nearly Caused a Blot on
One Eventtul Sunday in tko
Camp Ground'a lon? Ago.
MOUNDSVILLE, August 27.?In the
narrative of past events, soma Incidents
and people who figured In the meetings
of the past are forgotten. Many ro?
member Jim Lytle, who for a number
of years figured as an officer and gat?
keeper, and when canvas tents were In
vogue here, he and his father-in-law,
Henry Bone, who were In the awning
business at Martin's Ferry* Ohio, made
. .and set them up here on the ground.
Father Bone was always a prominent
figure In the revival services, and his
\j experience as related by him was alS
ways- full of Interest, and none were
. listened to more attentively. The "love
v feast" (a term for a meeting that Is
thoroughly understood by Methodists)
on Sunday morning, were usually large ;
4 ly attended, and you would find the
. '.'old fathers.and mothers" In Israel out
In force. It was their meeting, and
the younger generation looked on with
wonder, and manifested interest at
their stories of battles and victories
they had witnessed since their enlistment
In the "Lord's army."
Their love feasts were frequently continued
in to the time for nreachlnc ser
vice at 10:30 a. m., and when they were
closed It was in a halo of glory, with
shouts In the camp. An effort ivas
made at each love feast to have those
who took part In the service in the
relating of their experience to coflne it
to the now, just what their spiritual
status was at the present. The leaders
of the meeting found great difficulty
in keeping many within the limit.
Rev. Franklin Ball, on one of these
occuslons, after a good sister had spoken
several minutes, kindly requested
her to be brief. "Just tell us how it
Is with you now. Are you saved now?"
She replied, "Thank you. Brother Ball.
I will when I come to It. I came
twelve miles to tell my experience, and
I'm going to tell It." Tell It she did,
consuming about tlfteen minutes of
It was upon a similar occasion when
Rev. Frank Lynch, who Insisted several
llmn? thnt- tho ncrorl altttni* nhnntr) lv.
brief, and kept suggesting that It wa3
the now that they desired to know of
"Just.now." "Just now" she came back
with the statement that she was reaching
that point In her experience. After
talking about ten minutes she sat
down, when Rev. Mr. Lynch, In loud
'tones, began singing "Hallelujah. 'Ti?
Done," and he practically sang It as a
; solo, for almo3t the entire audience was
engaged In a suppressed titter, some of
them leaving the audldtorium to Indulge
In a good, hearty laugh. Frank,
of course, meant no disrespect, while
there-can be no doubt the sentiment of
the song found an echo in the minds
of many.
' Father Hendricks, of Benwood, one
of the old timers, and a grand old man
Jn every respect, on one occasion said In
his praying, "O, Lord God, we mean
business here to-night. We have been
ia/.y. *>ow wi* are narnesseu up unu
ready for work," It needed but one
prayer from him to call forth th.?
hearty amens and arouse thy enthusiasm
of the brethren. He, more than
once said that It made no difference to
him where heaven was. Some said it
was here, there and yonder. He was
not trying to go?he was going to go.
With others of the pioneers here, ho
has been ferried over, and ha^ received
the victor's crown. In referring to the
old fathers and mothers of the camp
'ground, I find It very much In evidence
'that their walk, actions and conversutlon
made deep impressions upon thos?
who were the boys and girls of thi
past, but who are the mvn and women
on the ground to-day, with one accord
they all ref .r to them as men and wo'
men of the deepest piety, and honest
tollers and workers in the vineyard.
Many here to-day ascribe their being In
the church to the* influence, kind words
of bntreaty and prayers of these old
people. The command that "ye walk
circumspectly" was evidently followed
by them.
The first meeting after the fence had
been erected many amusing incidents
occurred, and those who had charge of
the gates met many conditions which
' taxed their patience. _ The Gospel had
b*en free, the poor had the Gospel
' preached to them, and now, after ?o
many years, people were to pay to ko
to meeting. The man of thousands,
with the man of humbler walks of-life,
were placed on the same level, and ns
thoy came to the gate and the admittance
fee waB demanded, then there
wits room for argument. The equity
of the-condition was challenged and the
gate-keeper was put on the defensive.
In many Instances they came out viators,
for they hud possession. No pay,
no get In. On the llrst Sunday there
came to the gate an elderly man, riding
a fine horse, and when his entrance to
the grounds was checked, and ton cents
demanded, then lie gavo vent to
thn thoughts of his mind ua'they rapidly
formed. "I would sooner pay five
dollars to the association, than to give
this ten cents for admission* Ten cents
to go to meeting! Keeping out the
poor sinner. No right to place a fence
around the old camp ground. Ichabod
had been written over the fence," nnd
a tirade of abuse that flowed at tho
rate of about one hundred words to the
minute. All this lime the lane was
blocked with wagons, buggies nnd
etc., and their occupants loudly yellud,
i "Pay your ten cent#, or. get out of tho
way." Many offers to pay the way
were made. The Kate-keeper finally
; ordered him to ride out of the way, no
that others who would pay could get In.
After an absence of about half nn hour
,,ho returned, poJd liln ten cent* and
entered the grounds. I am informed he
was a wealthy farmer of this county, a
.member of the Methodist church. Probably
he went up the lane and took the
matter up with the Lord. . I am convinced
that if entrance to the grounds
had.been free, and a collection (which
Is Methodistic) had been taken up, you
wuuiu navy luuuu tins muii usieep, or
he would have remained out of the
sanctuary until the collection had been
taicen up.'
Another Instance was when an old
road wagon that had seen better days
came up to the gate. The father, I
suppose. Inquired the cost of admission.
The Information was given, the age of
free admission being stated. Then he
had to call mother's memory to the rescue,
to state the ages. She began at
the eldest,. winding up at the youngest
Reuben, Eliza, Ben, Emmallne,
Hannah, and she named them all, fifteen
hopefuls, but the whole load got
In for ninety cents, as there was three
sets of twins In the younger crowd. Not
a word of complaint came from this
man, who, from the appearance of the
team and the dress of his family, was
li man who was In very moderate circumstances.
He was not a member of
the church, but his wife was. and may
be she was known only by him. The
woods on the ground were in the early
days a sight on Sundays. Vehicles of
all kinds, horses of the same. At th?
noon hour a watermelon (In the early
days this fruit grew* plentifully near
here) would be secured, and then with
table spread on the ground all would
gather around, and then the consummation
of the meal would occur. The
situation can be seen to-day on Sundays,
but only about one-third of the
number. This decrease Is probably due
(#-. Ikn I nt rrknn t/in
cents paid the footing. Now twentylive
cents Is demanded. My country
friend, with his load of fifteen, would
now be taxed two dollars and twentyfive
cents, and the wealthy farmer Is
home rubbing the eagle off the quarter,
and perhaps grumbling because he
can't get a free Gospel.
One Sunday In the early seventies
there was present on the ground many
who bore the external evidence of Intoxication.
It was very evident that
the liquor was being sold on the ground.
There happened to be dwelling on the
ground a gentleman who was connected
with the revenue department in
Wheeling, and he started out to locate
the vender of liquors. It did not take
him long to tree the animal. Up In
the road was a wagon load of fine large
melons, that were being sold at an exorbitant
price, and It was noticed that
none were being sold to boys. These
facts aroused the suspicion of the government
official, and purchasing one, he
took it to his tent and proceeded to
carVe it. "When cut in two there fell
on the table a quart bottle of the genuine
old stuff. The end of the melons
had been plugged and enough of the
meat extracted to admit of a quart
bottle. It Is needless to say that the
load of melons was taken from tho
ground, and so far as I am aware, the
act has not been repeated since. J. C.
Is Fast Approaching and There is Remarkable
Interest Shown Already.
The Lighting Test Will he Held
Next Week.
But thirteen days?then the twentieth
annual West Virginia state fair
and exposition, and to say that the big
show this year is being awaited with
an Interest approached before no
fair of the past Is the mere statement
of a fact. The night sessions are largely
responsible for this added Interest,
and It Is believed that the experiment
of night sessions at the 1900 fair will
make It impossible for the management
to order their discontinuance. These
night sessions will not only prove especially
attractive to the city people
who have not the opportunity to attend
the fair during the day, but the novel
character of the attractions and exhibits
that will make up the night programme
will &1po draw heavily from
the visiting crowd, and that all will be
pleased with the night show Is well assured.
Lawrence Reymann left yesterday for
Youngstown. Columbus and Ravenna,
to attend the ffllrs at those cities, In
the Interest of the live stock department
of the West Virginia fair. He
expects to bag: many entries at the
three Ohio fairs.
The public test of the electric lighting
arrangements at the fair grounds
cannot be pulled oft this week, as the
contractors have been unexpectedly delayed
In their work. The test will likely
occur early next week. The Wheeling
Railway Company Is now laying a
power cable down South Ponn street,
from which the fair association will get
the power needed for Its electric lighting.
The new slate roof for the grand
stand Is nearly completed, and Contrac.
tor Schenerleln promises that It will be
finished this week.
The stage for the German vlllnge Is
now being put up. Th'e list of attractions
for the German Vlllnge will be
announced In a day or two?It's a
corker, and no mistake.
In Machinery hall 200 dog kennels for
the dog show nre being put In tills
week. This will be one of the most attractive
features of the fair.
Tho Grocers' Meeting-.
The meeting of the local retail grocers'
association, held last evening, was j
tho largest held this summer, due to the
fact that arrangements are being made
for the fourth annual state convention,
to be held at Charleston on Tuesday and
Wednesday of next week. A large attendance
of delegates from nil over the
state Is expected. W. E. Godfrey, of
the "Ohio Merchant," of Cleveland, O.,
who Js also secretary of the National
Association of Retail Grocers, will bo
present at the Charleston meeting. Governor
Atkinson and Mayor Floyd, of
Charleston, will muke addresses of welcome.
Following are the delegates of
the local association, who will leave1

|| ..POLITICS,, 1
The First district Democratic congressional.^convention
Is to be held In
Sistersvllb'tbis mornlnff. A few delegates
had renewed the Tyler county
metropolis last night, but the larger
number will go down this morning on
the Ohio River's 8 o'clock train, when
the Ohio county crowd goes In a body.
Fltty delegates v.'eve choBen to represent
this county at the late Democratic
county primary, but of these It Is not
likely that more than one-half yrill go.
There, Is but one avowed candidate
for the nomination, Hon. "Andy" Edmiston,
of "Weston, who, according to a
well known Ohio county leader, "wants
that nomination for all he Is worth." It
Is likely that he will be gratified in his
desire, though it Is possible that at
least two other names will be presented
for the consideration of the convention,
Messrs. T. M. Jackaon, of Clarksburg,
and W. W. Brannon, of Weston.
Throughout the district there is a
general desire to have ex-Congressman
John O. Pendleton, of this county, take
the nomination, but "John ." having
the faculty of distinguishing "good
things" from things that are not good,
says "nay" in no uncertain voice. Howard
and Arnett, too, could likely secure
the nomination if they wanted it?but
they don't. In fact, the whole Democratic
outfit sees the handwriting on
the wall, and It doesn't spell, "Democratic
Success in the First Congressional
District of West Virginia," this
year at least.
And as for Edmlnston?well, he's
good enough, for the slaughter.
Knives are Glistening:.
There is intense harmony among the
LJemocrais over in lioimont county.
Several members of the county central
committee have resigned because, they
say, the traitors to party harmony are
In the saddle. Bcllairc Democrats seem
to have been treated badly, and they
will not dance to the music as set by
the present manipulators. How far
salve may heal these wounds remains
to be seen, but the knives are glistening
now, and woe is in store for some
of the present powers that be.
The Rougli Rider Regiment.
The young Republicans (and the old
ones, too,) of Ohio county should remember
that there will be a meeting
on Thursday evening, at I. O. O. F.
hall, corner of Twelfth and Chapllne
streets, for the purpose of organizing a
Roosevelt Rough Rider Regiment. Here
is an opportunity for the marchers of
past campaigns to get In line for a
showing this year that will eclipse any?
thing scon here In any other presidential
campaign, and it Is hoped that the
rosentutive of the several districts of
the county.
Changes of Delegates.
The Republican county committee
met last night nnd canvassed the primary
returns. In Washington district,
Edward Fox is the ninth delegate, instead
of there being a tie between Davis
and Och. The former had 141 votes
and the two last named 13G each.
In Mndlson district, George Schenck
was credited with 27 votes nt the hose
house precinct, when he really received
127, thus giving him a total of 20G votes,
Instead of 10G. Ho becomes a delegate
to the convention, while Mr. W. 11.
Illgglns is counted out.
Otherwise, the returns as given yesterday
morning are correct.
In a few days wo will have a ftill lino
of the new noap records for "talking
machines. These records are a great
improvement over tho wax ones, being
louder and morn distinct. They alr.o
are much easier to make your own records

, BERLIN, August 27.?Thousands of
copies oV the sermon recently preached
by Emperor William on the yacht Hohenzollern
have been published for dlsi
trlbutlon among the German sailors and
soldiers In China.

eleventh verse of the seventeenth chapter
of Exodus, "And It came to pas3,

' rael prevailed, and when ho let It down
Amalelc prevailed."
After reviewing the text, the report
of the1 sermon as printed In the Kreuz
Zeltung quotes the emperor as foli
"A hot and bloody struggle has be,
gun. Mnny of our brothers stanil already
yonder under fire, many rfre on
their way to the enemy's coasts, and
you have seen them, the thousands who
at the call, 'Volunteers to the fore!
' Who .will be the guardian of the eui'
plre?' now assemble to enter the fight
| with flying colors. But you, 'who remained
behind at home, who are bound
, by other sacred duties, say, do you no;
hear God's call which He makes to you,
and which says to you, 'Go up on the
! mountains; raise up thy hands to tho
heavens.' The prayers of the just can
do ,inuch, If it Is In earnest.
Battle-Picture of our Day.
"Thus let It be. Yonder, far away,
the hosts oJ fighters; here at home tho
hosts of praying men. May this bo tho
holy battle picture also of our days.
May this peaceful morning hour remind
us?may it remind us or the sacreu uu~
ty of Intercession. Certainly It Is an
v enthusiastic moment when a ship with
the young men on board weighed anchor.
Did you not see the warriors'
eyes ash? Did you not hear their
many voiced hurrahs? But when the
native shores vanish, when one enters
the glowing heat of the Red sea or the
heavy waters of the ocean, how easily
brightness and enthusiasm grow
weak! Certainly it Is a sublime moment
when, after a long voyage, in the
distance the straight lines of the German
forts can be seen, and the black,
white and red flags of the Germany colony
become visible, and comrades in
arms stand on the shore waiting to
give a hearty reception. But the long
marches in a burning sun, the long
nights of bivouac in the rain! How easily
gaiety and strength vanish! Certainly
it is a legend for a moment when
at the drum's beat to the charge ami
the bugles are blown to advance, when
a command is given, 'Forward at the
Roar of the Guns.
"But, then, when amid the roar of r
the guns and the Hashing of the shells,
comrades fall to the right and to the
left, and hostile batteries still refuse
to yield?how easily the bravest heart c
then begins to tremble.
"Christians, in order that our broth- r
er* over yonder may remain gay even 2
in the greatest distress and faithful in
the most painful duty, courageous in
the greatest danger, they want something
more than ammunition and sharp
weapons, more also than youthful courage
and liery enthusiasm. They want
a blessing from above, vital power from
above, otherwise they cannot win nn:l
remain victorious. And the heavenly
world only opens to prayer. Woe to us
if we are idle whilst they are carrying
on a hard and bloody piece of work,
woe to us if we only look on curiously
at the great sight whilst they wrestle
In a death struggle. This would b3
Cain's spirit, with the cruel words,
'Am I My Brother's Keeper?' This
would be faithlessness towards our
brave brothers who are staking their
lives. We will mobilize not only bat- ,
talions of warriors, but also a holy
force of praying men. How much then; e
is to ask for our brothers going Into J
the field. They are to be the strong I
arm which punishes assassins. 5
Tlio Mailed Fist. *
"They are to be the mailed first which i
strikes in amongst them. They are to c
stand up with the sword In their hand:; '
for our most sacred possessions. So t
we will accompany them with our pray- \
er, out 011 to the heaving waves, on
their marches, into the roar of the battle
and into the pyaceCulucss of the lios- j
pitals; we will pray to God that they n
may stand at their posts like men,
that, they may fight their battles courageously
and heroically, that they may t
bear their wounds bravely and calmly; r
that God may give those who die under I
fire a blessed end, and the reward of
faithfulness ? In short, that He may *
make the warriors heroes and the he- J,
roes victors, and then bring them home 2
to the land of their fathera with the
laurels round their puggarees, and the. *

Yesterday afternoon about 2:30 !
