it was not so everywhere. He told of
some concrete instances-one where
a superintendent hadbeenemployed in
a community which had had trouble
with its school and where -the super
intendent had succeeded in bringing
the people together, but where the
only difference had later arisen be
tause the superintendent was , Bap
tist and the most of thepatronsofthe
iehool were Methodists; and of an
other instance where there was the
same state of facts except that the
superintendent was a Methodist and
imost of the patrons were Baptists.
But, said the speaker, there had
never been an evil that God had not
found an anidote for. He believed
there was an antiseptic for the evils
of which he had spoken. God's an
tisepties-the speaker said the hoped
he would be pardoned for the word,
but that he used it for want of a-bet
4er one-differed from human anti
septic in this particular; that the hu
man antiseptic stops -the diseases,
while God's antiseptic not only pre
vents the diseases, or stops them, but
recreates and renews that which has
been wasted by the diease.
The speaker said that he believed
God's antiseptic for that to which he
had called attention was human so
ciety. With all due reverence the
speaker said that he did not believe
that God could save humanity from
bis place on high, or even from his
presence in the soul he could not do
i until he took that spirit of his and
put it in the hunan body. The re
juvenative force for man's spiritual
and moral life was not Iy the spirit
released but by the spirit incarnate
the touch of human heart with human
heart, through human body with hu
Can you come into elose, intimate,
sincere, honest, earnest communion
with man or woman in the eviron
ment of the social function? The
speaker gave some concrete instances
showing xhat one could not. The go
ing to a reception and pumping the
hands of a dozen people in the line
of the receiving party, or the receiv
ing of some cake in one hand and a
cup of chocolate in the other, eith6i
of which would be inviting "were
'tother dear charmer away" were
among some of the personal exper
iences he mentioned.- The barriers of
convention were there, he said. So
ciety in Newberry was not unlike so
ciety in Spartanburg. Soeiety in
Newberry and Sportanburg was not
only divided and separated by the
barriers of .econventiality, but it
was separated into parallel and hori
zontal strata-the man at the bottom
who had to labor all .the time and who
had a wife who had to cook all the
time, and the man at the top who
stood at the top, not always because
of the element of manhood and merit,
but frequently because of sdme of
the accidents of fortune, which gave
a fortune to him or possibly to his
father. The speaker said that the
-mere presence of human beings was
not what was needed. He said that
.the loneliest he had ever been was in
New York,. on Broadway. What we
wanted was an antiseptic-something
to take us out o.f ourselves,~ to put
us in contact with our fellows, with
out these barriers of conventionality
which social life had built up. In
this connection the speaker said. that
he wanted to say to the ladies that
he believed .they were responsible for
*the .affectation which domonated the
social life of today.
God intended society as a pi'even
tive, as an antiseptic. Fraternalism
*could not do it all, but it could do a
,The speaker then took up the order
of Knights of Pythias, telling of how
it was founded by an unassuming
clerk in one of the government de
partments in Washington during the
latter days of the War Between the
States-not to help the North, not
to help the South, but for the. broth
erhood of man. This government
clerk and his associa.es met in a lit
tle room, and they were few in num
ber. It was great in its conception,
he said, and especially great on ae
count of the environment.
How was the fraternal order to
break down the barriers of the socie
ty of today~? There were two things,
said the speaker, which always
brought men closer together. One was
when a man stood with another,
whether it was loved one or frienud,
before an open grave-in the presence
of a great sorrow. The other was
where two men laughed together or
at themselves or at somebody else.
He gave concrete instances of where
employers and employees had been
brought together by the initiation
in the order of Knights of Pythias
where men in all walks of life had
been brought togethber as friends on
the common level of merit and man
The speaker then took up the ptu
poses of the order. He said tha- the
geatest danger con frontig so'-~.vt
today was in the number of young
en leaying~ the country ~oeking
went to different surroundings, with
out the moral safeguards thrown
around him in his home, and he want
ed contact with his fellows, and if
he couldn't get it in better homes he
was going to have it in othei places.
Grand Chancellor Rembert gave eon
crete ekamples of what the Knights
of Pythi* had been able to do for
young men of this kind for aford
ing them the right kind of compan
ionship. He told the mothers pres
ent that they could not do better by
their boys nor by their neighbors'
boys, when they go into another com
munity, or even in their own com
munity, than by urging them to join
some one of the better class of fra
Grand ' Chancellor Rembert spoke
without notes throughout. His and
ience would have been glad to have
heard ihim longer. Seldom have those
present heard an address more elo
quent, more forceful, more convine
ing, or showing deeper study of man
and of human activiti*s here and
Prof. Rembert on Sunday evening

ed an address more especially for the
young people.. The church was
crowded beyond its capacity, and
many who would have heard the dis
tinguished speaker were prevented
from doing so because of being un
able to find seating or standing rooni
in the church.
