A friend who attended Rev. Sam Jones' birthday celebration October 16 h writes as follows about tbe Evangelist and his home: 'Sam Jones has a beautiful home, surrounded by every comfort. There is no effort at useless display, but all is elegant in its very simplicity. I have heard Sam Jones criticised be cause of this very home, but I suppose be has long ago become used to tbe voice of tbe calumniator. He can do no more nor lets than make bis fami ly comfortable, and for every dollar he has expended on that home in uar- tersville be has worked and toiled many and many months. 1 here may be those who have enmity toward Sam Jones, but he knows no enemies. '1 was struck witbsometmngaoout Sam Jones' home which is typical of bis life. When he built bis present home he had the old home, which was a one-story frame building, raised and tbe new portion bunt under it. itie old homestead is there, but it is ele vated and made beautiful by the new part, which is a handsome foundation So it is with the life of. the owner. The old Sam Jones has been lifted up with a new man andahrm founda tion. tbe "maker and builder of which is God." While the entire new structure is beautiful to behold, yet the old Sam Jones is still there with the humor and tbe boyishness and the love for all mankind. "What struck me more forcibly than anything else at that gathering was tbe utter simplicity of Sim Jones's home life. With his family and bis friends he was like a haDDy boy, and as I watched him I tbougbt: Beneath this quiet, meek, sweet-tempered nature there lies the power to move and sway tbe multitudes, as beneath tbe placid stream tbe swirt and strong current bears ail oeiure it to the ocean."

Friday night on the train from Sal isbury to Greensboro was a man who said he was a drummer. He was very mouthy, telling how he managed to sell so many goods, to wit: by carrying around with him a few three cent cigars and a pint of mean corn whiskey by which he said he could fool any Southern buyer, as they bad but little sense. He talked loudly and many in the car heard him. Finally be said tbe preachers all drank and he had often had them drink with him from a bot tle when out of sight of their congre gations. Sitting a few seats behind the drum mer was evangelist Lee, who could not stand such an imputation, so be proceeded to make a few remarks, the gist of which was that tbe man was slandering the people of the South and in short was telling i falsehood. The drummer said were it not for Mr. Lee's clerical robes he would wipe up the ground with btm. Mr. Lee told the man not to consider his cleri cal coat as he could protect himself. Of course the man did not avail himself of tbe offer, but Capt. R. B. Glenn, of Winston, who was standing by, full of Indignation, remarked that he was no preacher, but a lawyer, and he wanted to repeat that what he (tbe drummer) had said about the people of this part of tbe country and especially tbe ministers, was a downright false hood and if he wanted to take It up for blm to pitch In, there being no cierlcal robes in the way. Of course tbe sneak did nothing but sneak away into the next car. No one on tbe train knew tbe man's name. Tbe fellow said be was a Southern mau, but a lady on tbe train from Fayetteville told him that he did not talk like a Southern man. Capt. Glenn says all of the ladies as well as tbe drummers were insulted and highly indignant and he thinks that if there had been no ladies on tbe train the traveling men would have given tbe chap a genteel thrashing. rue man came up to Winston next morning but Capt. Glenn was unable to find out bis name. The merchants should learn such men a lesson by refusing to buy goods rrom tnem. Capt. Glenn commends Evangelist Lee's action. "He raised himself one hundred percent, in my estimation," said the OaDtain S. S. FIELD SECRETARY. Executive Committee Unable to Em ploy One Resolutions Adopted. The members of the State Sunday Scbool executive committee, who were in session Friday afternoon passed a resolution which will be submitted to tbe other members of the commit tee -T B Fuller, H N Snow, J n Southgate, of Durham, N B Brough ton, of Raleigh, and F S Blair, of Guilford College, for their approval.
