Man Who Talked.
Kov. Dr. J. J. Lafferty. or Richmond. !
kept a [large audieilOO in an almost con- j
staut roar of laughter last night for two
hours and ton minutes at Greene Me?
Tho audience was not only one of the
largest, but also one ot the most intelli
t gent and refined that has even- as
j sCmblod in Koanoke to hear any man.
and everybody seemed delighted,
j Not more than half a dozen had gone .
out when tho doctor closed his lecture of
; two hours and ten minutes' length. Tin:
i TIMES hoard many remarks that they ;
' would have listened to eagerly.
Dr. Lafferty was introduced by Rev.
J. II. Iloyd, pastor of tho church.
lie is a man slightly over the average j
statue, like his portrait, but some hand?
somer. Iiis iron gray locks and raus-'
tache make him resemble /.ob Vance, of ;
North Carolina, when ho was younger, j
He also resembles the great Senator in j
his wit and humor and remarkable con- |
trol over an audience, and his manner
of speaking. He has a broad, good- j
j natured face, and a line forehead.
I He would at ouce bp taken as more
I than ordinary man anywhere, and the '
i audience who heard him last night I
t doubtless bear out the assertion of a j
Sputhern journal, that he is the equal ,
of any humorist living or dead.
Kam Jones excels him in wit.
The argument of the lecture was that
what is, is better than what has been,
and the humor was in tho description of
scenes and the relating of incidents
fifty, seventy-live and one hundred years
ago, and contrasting thorn with the
things of to-day.
"I stand up for the people of 1880,"
said Dr. Lafferty.
They are better fed and clothed more
intelligently,and better Christians than
any people who have lived before them.
I know that it is in mens mind's, as in
mythology, that the golden age is in the
past. Wo are like a caravan in it desert
i that looks back with such lenger yearn
1 ing to the springs and grass of the oasis
' tliat is left in the trail. It is distance
. that lends enchantment to tho scene
