Reunion Proved to bo Most Pleasant j
Occasion-81th Milestone.
There is probably no happier per
son in Oconee county to-day than
^.Grandma" Morgan, of Welcome,
who on last Saturday, May 20th, cel
ebrated a birthday reunion at the
heme of Mr. and Mrs. Will Huskamp.
This has been an annual custom with
(?landina Morgan for a number of I
years, and tho reunion last week was
probably tho most enjoyable of thom
nil. Although il marked her s Uli
h'rlhday, Grandma Morgan was still'
in the best of health and spirits, andi
1.- already planning for many more
such r?unions in tho years to come.
?Carly in the morning Grandma j
D r?rg i s sons ?ind daughters, grand- ;
cl lldren and good friends and neigh
bors began arriving lo ?lo her honor,
mid when 'lie sur lind climbed high
in tho heavons ii lung picul; table
was erected in the cool green shade
of two large oaks In the back yard,
.Mid was soon groaiiit p under the
weight of cakes and pies, sand
wiches and pickles, fried chicken and
other things that gladden the hearts
of young and old. After prayer by
Rev. J. T. Carey, of Clemson College,
everybody fell to tho feast.
It was a day of thanksgiving on
Ihe pari of all present. As pointed
otp. by Rev. Carey, in n touching and
inspiring talk, it ls through God's
grout love and merry that Grandma
Morgan was enjoying the blessing of
a long and frnUful lifo. Our span ot*
years on ibis earth is short al thc
most, and doubly blessed are those
who 4o good while in tho light of
day, for when the night comes our
work is done.
Kev. Carey pleaded for more peo
pie in this world Uko Grandma Mor
gan, and that 111 our hurried and
careless life of modern times wo stop
now and then to demonstrate our
love and devotion to our mothers
and grandmothers, whose lives have
been like candles in dark places, and
whose presence among us is a witness
of God's love.
Grandma Morgan was thankful,
she said, that her years had been so
lengthened that she could continuo
to servo her Saviour and to do as
much work in this life as sho could.
She intended to keep on "sowing and
reaping" until her golden sun sinks
in the west. And she could watch its
sinking with steady eyes and with
out fear in her heart, but rather with
a great Joy at tho coming peaceful

Powerful Charge to Fedora! Groud
Jury-Enforcement of Law.
(Anderson Mail.)
Co-operation of the Christian peo
j pie of the nation in assisting officers
and the courts to enforce tho laws,
was the koy-note of a very powerful
charge delivered by Federal Judge
ll. II. Watkins in Federal Court this
morning. Judge Watkins* charge
was as much to the general public as
it was to the grand jury.
"Mr. Foreman and gentlemen," ho
began, "I wish to briefly instruct you
as to the indictments which will be
shortly handed you before I go into
ny general charge. Many of these
indictments, you will find, charge
violation of the national prohibition
Judge Watkins then explained tho
form of the indictment, the various
counts, etc., and touched on other
indictments banded out at the same
limo, telling tho jurors their duties,
. nd informing them as lo how to ar
rive at a decision as to what to write
eu the bill, following his specific
charge, he said:
"It is proper at this time, I think,
to say a lew words of the general
purpose of the court, and of the prob
lems confronting it. At the close of
tho World War the newspapers were
Ulled with discussion of whether or
not tho Christian religion had proved
itself to be a failure or a success, mid
litany of those opposed to Christian
religion, and some weak adherents
to the religion of Jesus Christ, either
openly charged that Christianity had
failed or doubted its success. One
reason for this discussion was tho
terrible catyclasm brought about by
tho war. Tho brutality and Ininti
inanity of the struggle belwoen the
Christinn nations furnished a power-'
tul argument to those who opposi .1
Christianity. ?
"Now we hear the same discus
sen. Aro we progressing in the en
forcement of Hu; national prohibi
tion laws? Will the law become a
failure or a sttccoss?
"I stated to a party of Christian
gentlemen the other night that I
would answer that question if they
would answer one for me. My quos-j
tion is. Where do Christian people'
stand? Are they solidly behind tho'
law? Are they openly violating it,
or winking at its violation?'
"Ono of the troubles with the law
is that there is a disposition on tho
part of the public to shove off the
responsibility to some one else, to
let the officers do it all. People
blame the courts and juries for non
en forcement of the law. There is
something the matter I admit that
"I lie awake sometimes at night
trying to ligure tho answer to our
present condition. There is some-;
thing alarming, something sinister |
which should arouse our men to a
realization of the conditions which
are rapidly growing among us.
"I recall a plea I made to the
grand*jury recently to stand by the
law because it was a law-a law of
tho nation. Disregard for tho ono
law makes all laws less safe, and the
defiance of law openly permitted cre
ates tho gravest danger.
"I thought I saw some of the con
ditions that were approaching be
cause of the indifference of the peo
ple, but I did not really have any
idea of what was coming.
"Consider conditions in Russia, in
Ireland, where neighbor is ready and
anxious to fly at his neighbor's
throat, where no man nor woman ls
safe. And theso very conditions
threaten us boro In America. Last
year when armed forces approached
ouch other in West Virginia, it
ought to have awakened us to theso
conditions, but it did not; lt was
too far off.
"These sporadic outbreaks that
wo read of daily in tho papers do
not worry us, nor do they awaken
us, but it is getting closer to us
every day. Just across the river at
Columbus, Ca., whero a mayor and
a commission form of government
bas been elected, the mayor and tho
chief commissioner of the town have
been threatened and thc mayor's
home blown up.
"No violation of tho law should go
unpunished. The only euro for tho
present disregard for tho law is the
punishment of those who violate tho
laws. Open violation of law should
be crushed even to annihilation. Tho
man who stands and says, 'To hell
with the law,' should be utterly an
"I figure that we are coming out
of these conditions--but at. what a
"Somo say that the trouble starts
with tho law, There may bo a groat
de.tl of truth in liiftt, because I kno\V
tho laws are not perfect. Rot as
start right, thon, and pick ibo right
sort of men lo send down to Colum
I bia and to Washington and make tho
i right kind of laws.
"Tho next is that the laws are not
enforced. I beliovo that most Judges
aro doing their best, but if they
should fail to do their duty they cer
tainly should ho roasted for it.
.Some say tho fault is with the
juries. That ls not so in my court. I
pay tribute hore to as line a body ol'
men as ever considered a question
those men who liavo served ou ibo
Juries up lo now in my court.
"Some say that tho otlieers aro
to blame. ! will say this: One cor
rupt olllcor can do moro harm than
one hundred - even a thousand-cit
izens could do.
"A thoughtful man has said that
one of tho biggest troubles is idle
talk. There aro two kinds of criti
cism-helpful criticism and criticism
Just to bo criticising.
"We bavo temporized with law
violators long enough. It is tittle to
show the violators that wo moan bus
iness. Every decent man should be
for tho enforcement of law on the
ono side-and those on tho other
side, i'd rather not characterise."
.lodge Regretted Presentment.
Judge Watkins spoke of tho recent
pi cseu t ment of an Anderson county
gr.ind jury, in which he was request
ed to send no moro prisoners to the
Anderson jail. Ho said that he re
gretted this because tho true facts
in tho case were likely to bo misun
derstood and cause a question to bo
ncked as to whether or not the judge
of the Federal Court was doing right.
"If this court, contributes anything
to the pubuildlng of right in the
country, it is in Anderson county
whore this good is done." Ho spoke
furtbor of the war of 1S1 2, during
which the indifference of some of the
border line residents of tho country
refused to allow Gen. Hampton the
privilege of putting his prisoners In
their Jails, and spoke of the indif
ference of those people.
"I ask the co-operation of the peo
ple of Anderson in enforcing tho
law," tho judge said. "It is a big
task, and is worthy of the effort- of
us all."

Macon, May 21.-Jim Denson, tho
negro youth who escaped from a mob
yesterday, prayed unusually long in
the Bibb county jail to-night before
he threw himself upon his bunk for
his first night's sleep this week. He
prayed for the members of the mob
that broke into the Jail at Irwinton,
Ga., early Tuesday, dragged him out
and attempted to lynch him, and he
prayed for his ultimate release, re
asserting his innocence.
Denson is under sentence to hang
on Juno 1G for an alleged attack on
an aged white woman three years'
Believing Denson's escape from tho
mob was an a< t of Providence, there
are numerous white people of this

of the negro to lifo imprisonment, lt.

Denson was captured this morn

"I heard them say they would
shoot mo just out of town. The knot
in the rope around my neck was
choking mo, and I roached up ono
hand in tho dark and felt tue slip

thirty miles an hour, an' I say to
myself, 'Jim, jump, or be kilt.' T
jumped, feet first, flam-flooey, just
Uko that. I hit the ground on my
feet and then on my head and then
I must have flopped over four times
and rolled into the ditch.
"When I got out of tho ditch sev
eral shots were fired at mo. I Just
crawled, but they kept on firing. I
got up again and ran. I was bare
footed and my clothes wore torn off
of me, and the gravel cut my feet."

Tho negro had this one tied to him

fighting off a third when tho posse

"Health is the greatest thing in the

I could hardly go at all.
"I was just no account for work. I
