'The speaker told “how so many o the modern churches are trying t« function without the Holy Ghost," am of the need for the religious enthus iasm h« said so characteristic of thi "old-fashioned Methodist.” "The church that is trying to gel along without the Holy Ghost Is doom ed to failure." said the preacher. "/ preacher cannot preach without thi Holy Ghost, neither is God’s word re vealed to any man without him.” The preacher declared that “entin sanctification, one of the five car dinal doctrines of the Methodis Churh. is ignored by so many of thi churches today- and this accounts foi the absence of vital religious expen ence and the religious enthusiasm which made the people of a genera ticn ago shout with joy.

Pou, of this district, is of the opinion that the new agricultural credit banks will prove a great help in providing relief to the farmers. In a statement sent to the Daily Dispatch for release, Mr. Pou said: "The creation of the Agricultural Credit Corporations should supply a ireat need to the farmers of the na- Mon. The time merchant has well oigh disappeared. These new corpora lons. recommended by President Hoover and authorized by act of con fess. are Intended to take the place of the corporations, banks and time meb ~hants who. In the old days, were en ?aged In the business of financing the farmer. The only question is whether our fahmera, as a rule, can qualify to receive help from these new govern mental agencies. While no policy has been announced my belief is that the policy to be put in force by these new governmental agencies will be as li beral as the rules of ordinary busi ness safety will permit. I believe the benefit which will accrue to our people engaged in agriculture from the es abllshment of these corporations may vell-nigh be universal In its scope."

WILSON NEGRO IS BARBECUE EXPERT On a recent visit to Wilson, it was my good fortune to be invited to a picnic barbecue dinner and more es pecially to make the acquaintance of on© Huley Williams, whom the Wilson folks style the “Barbecue King” or ‘‘the chef.” He is Indeed an Interest ing character. With my usual inquis itiveness. I would interview him the while he cooked the 60 pound pig on the wire grate in the pit in the back yard of a member of the “B. B. Q.” club. Huley is a genuine old time “uncle” of pre-war (Civil War, I mean) days, but entirely "up to now" on his sp**cialty. He is a home-owner nas a 107 acre farm but barbecuing is his avocation. He is 87 years old and has been roasting pigs, chickens, and hogs for many years. Since he was 15 years old at his farm he takes private orders for individuals and for clubs as well. Down there barbecue Is the main dish at out door feasts. Huicy told me he had cooked 2000 or more pigs and chickens and he glories in his work and has become an art.si in his line. Seeing him .«» action and getting in acton wtti the twenty five or more friends on our street in eat ing, the finished product at noon call ed to mind Charles Lamb's Roast Pig of literary fame. His seasonings of vinegar, pepper and the smoke from the hickory and oak coals made a loathsome picnic luncheon of the ten der pig. This is a little tribute of Huley’s skill, from “Among my Sou venirs.” NETTIE A. DEANS.
