T' PICKENS SFNTI Entered April 28, 1903 at Piokens 8. 0., as second cla matter, under act of Cougroa o VOLXXXV _PICKENS SOUTH CAROLINA,, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 100 IDIOSYNCRACIES OF AN ISHMAELITE It is about as difficult for ani average mat) to manaige an auto mobile as for him to handle a wife. When the stork visits a home it generally leaves a howling remind er behind. The average church member of this day and time acts as if there wasno sin and not much of heaven or hell. Some of them, though, use the church ai a cloak and seem, by tlheir actions, at least, that they have got a reserve seat ticket that will admit them to a front seat at the (treat White Throne, no matter how they live or what they do here'on this earth. We get heart-sick at the lying, cheating, hypocrical church mem ber. He is lying to his conscience, cheating his soul and practicing hypocrisy with God. They use religion as a cloak-make a Sun day suit of it and put it on to go to church in, the balance of the time it willIbe found lying behind the bed room door, and sometimes it can be found covering a jug of liquor from the preacher, under the excuse that "the old woman is puny and I have to keep a little for to make bitters for her." The old hypocrite, he slips out of the bed overy morining and takes a swig out of the jug before the "old Wom11an1" is awake, and when Sun (lay comes ho hies off to get it fill ed again, for tho "old womar's" bitters" must be on hand. Again, there are church mem bers-not Christian church mem bore, but fellows who simply have their-names on the church book, who talk abnut h)w good they are and how honest, and they p)ay all their debts, and you will find that they have paid off the lins and mnortgages over them while the blacksmith, printer. -doctor ai-d any other sucker who has been kind enough to extend credit to them on "their face" is done to a turn and the poor preacher "gets it where the chicken got the axe" when it comes time to collect hi" salary. Yet they are honest when they are made to be so. The preachor, poor man, he has to do the best he can; be labors all the year and at the end of the year he accepts anot her call, poorer thai when he began the new year's work , and why, simply because he has been handicapped, a muzzle has been put on his mouth, he canl not p~reakch as he should for fear of offeinding some "good *member" who helps to pay his salary, and because of certain utterances some One else retfuses to pay, the out 4 come generally being that the mem bers get mad at him at the end of the year to keep from paying. This is regular dishwater preaching.. Hammer the truths into the peo, ple, 0, ye preachers, and look above, you will be fed and clothed How mnai.y times does your Bible 4 tell you of the "faithful few" being fed and clothed. What doas it say about the discilples going to preach without script in their purse or sandals upon their feet? Have you lost the faith of your forbeare? Sociiety has a heap to do with things as they are; and speaking of this "sassiety,"~ how abougt Nani P~ittters'il, the chorus girl, wh< broke with her husband and took up with another mian, alierating his aiffect.ions from his own wife and children andl then killed him biecause he tried to return to his own vine and fig tree and be true to his own fireside. She stood 4 trial, and after a time was acquit ted, went on tile stage, and "'sass iety" full all over iself to get ini the > ald haeadedc row" to see the siglits of her on the Vaudeville atage, and now Nan, the emlemii cured of Lami Back After 15 years of XufferInag.
