ftynopftiN of a .Sermon Delivered
Kev. M. W. Itrabhnm.
Greenwood, S. 0., March 27,18
Editor Press and Banner:
Your correspondent had the pleasure
terday of attending preaching at Jit. L
non church near New Market. The sere
a synopsis of which is given below, wai
llvered to a large and appreciative audit
by Rev. M. M. Brabhiim, pastor.
His text was the first four verses of
fourth chapter of Proverbs:
"1. Hear ye children the instruction of
ther and attend to know understanding.
"2. For I give you good doctrine, forsake
my law.
For I was my father's sou, tender
only beloved in the sight of my mother.
"J. He taught me also, aud said unto
let thine heart retain my words, keep
commandments, and live."
He said, it is no small matter to assume
responsibility of parentage. In the pr<
training of children It Is of vast Import*
that there should be co-operation on the ]
;>f the parents. As a rule, mothers are n
zareful aud more faithful than fathers in
proper training of their children. This 1;
doubt due to the fact that the mother Is
reason of circumstances, more closely a
slated with her children than the fathe
ind for this reason Is In a better posltlo
ippreclate the responsibility of their pre
education.
Many good business men often fall bert
Lbelr wives do not co-oporate with then:
Lhey should. The wife, in her extra vagal
jften spends faster than the husband
make, thereby bringing him toan early ba
uptcy.
Sometimes a failure In life is due to the 1
sand's extravagance and bad managemen
To guarantee success in life there shouli
i hearty co-operation on the part of botb 1
jand and wile.
Partnts should teach their children to i
3are not only lor huh nre dui ror etern
The father and mother are responsible
:heir existeuce and for this reason, if foi
Mher, should feel It their most sacred dut;
iducate and protect the interest of their c
Iren whom God in ills divine wisdom i
goodness has seen fit to give them. Home
ents try to shift the responsibility of tri
ng their children on the teachers and S
lay School Superintendent. Parents, t
inn only aid you, but the responsibilitj
raining your children rests on you y<
ielves. Parents tiro required to teach tl
children becau.se ot the absolute ignoranc
he child who must depend upon others
nformatlon and protection. The child is
lolutely irresponsible for this Ignorance i
lependence. Another reason why pare
hould properly train their children is t
IjQir own children will exert an lnflue
iver other people's children. Your child i
nine are going to exert an influence overc
Iren yet unborn. The greatest talent t
Tod has given us is wrapped up In our c
Iren They are our children only for the tl
leing, but belong to God. The tendency
luman nature Is evil.
With rare exceptions, there can be no gi
baracter formed unless good impressions
arly made. The child, in Us fallen nati
viII not stop where it lias fallen if good In
inces are not early brought to bear upon
tut will fall to the very depths of degra
ion. We must begin to teacn our chlldrec
line and to teach them good doctrlr.e? m
each them by example as well as by prec<
We should use no unclean language. Wo
Ike the winds are physically transient
norally permanent. A mau has as mi
Ight to throw mud in my face as he has
ise Indecent language In my presence. I
, disgrace to use unclean words. Boys (
;lrls never use language that you would
shamed to repeat in the presence of y
nother. Be honest. It is a grand thing tc
n honest bov or girl. Some people tram
heir property to avoid paying their tie
,od still live in extravagance, we should
;ind towards God's creatures, both man i
irute.
There Is a tendency on the part of mat
ie cruel, especially to dumb animals. I hi
een men abusing their poor old mules v
lave no vice to remonstrate. A cruel mar
n abomination In the sight of God. Parei
each your children to be kind even to du
irutes. Teach them in the proper way, t
he proper way Is to Christ. Teach them t
bey must be born again?that they must
ept Christ as their Saviour. To teach th(
These things must be In their own heartR.
About the time gold was discovered in C
Drnla, a gentlemen who had. after year's
or, accumulated a considerable amount
old dust which he had secured In a t
laced around bis body, wason a burning \

be vessel would sink, a little girl looked
erly inio his face and asked if he cot

Won't you save me?" He at once saved i

Children, it Is your duty to obey your

There Is no youne man but seen plenty
lowers scattered along his path way ihroi
Ife. There are plenty of pitfalls along 1
,'uj. You may think father is Ignorant. I
>e knows some things you don't know.
Undutllui children are a grief to their
ents. Parents love their children- Til
re many parents living disappointed beca
>f undutllui children.
Children, your fathers and mothers ol
nany prayers for you. God save these yoi
oys and girls, 'lo disappoint parents Is
isoUey God. Boys and girl?, if you are (
bedient to your parents you will have a hi
line in life. You cannot have an easy c

Columbia Register,
tbe Washington, D. C., March 31.?The following
communication has been sent by the
a in- South Carolina delegation to President Cleveland:
not To Mr. President: You are aware of the
unfortunate factional division In the deraoand
cratlc party In South Carolina. It did not
arise by reason of any national issue, but
me, was the result of an effort looking to the reray
formation of the local government ol that
State. The factions are known as "reform"
the and "antl-reforiu."
iper xhe undersigned members of congress reince
present what Is known in South Carolina as
part the relorm element in local politics. We
jore have made every effort consonant with the
the dlcnity of the positions we hold In lairness
'no and Justice to equitably alvlde the patronage
.by or our State in a delegation meeting, butfallsso
ej on account of the minority refusing to cor
is, operate with us lu a proposition in Hue with
n to a custom that has prevailed lmmemorlabiy
>Per in congress.
[ It is now your province to settle tins matluse
ter according to what to you seems good and
1 as proper. At a meeting of the undersigned we
ace> unanimously agreed to recommend Hun.
w*11 Sampson Pope, ol Newberry county, S. C., for
the position of marshali; Hon. I. H. McCxlla,
of Abbeville county, S. C., lor collector ol Inbus
terual revenue; Hon. Joseph H. fcarle for
' United Stutes district attorney; and Hon. A.
* be M. Youmans, of Hampon county, S. C., for
au8* collector at the port of Beaufort.
All of these names belong to our (action,
Pre" except the Hon. J. H. Karle, who was the
ity- nominee for governor of the other faction
",r against Governor B. R Tillman iu 1S90. Hitr
00 attitude toward our faction since that time
y J.? has been that of a conservative in the stricl
sense of the word, and he occupies the pecuand
liar and striking position of standing bePa"
tween the two factious, enjoying the conflaln"
dence and respect of both. We concede this
un" position to him. because we know that his ap
>,0y pointment would give universal satisfaction
' ?* and pleasure to both factions. We honestly
5ur" believe that we are entitled to three-fifths of
Jelr this patronage on account of the numercal
e o1 strength of our faction, it being 60,000 out of
'?r the 00,000 white democratic voters of the
ab: State.
anu We iiope that you will regard this as our
!.n , appeal for the recognition of the democrats
"Hl whom we have the honor to represent In our
nci* State. With the hope that this unfortunate
*"}* division may be satisfactorily adjusted, we
I?'1" beg leave to subscribe ourselves very respectP?,
lully your obdlent servants.
