r r 4rs < < t- tr f Jn > VOLUMF Xl 1 COLUMBIA 100kev Tally at Breeding the meeting there were twentyodd conversions and the majority of these were received into the Church of Christ er Methodist Church at Breeding Bro Pace and Bro Tarter also assissted in rhe meeting Brother Pace rendering ome fine music Bro Tally has now gone to other fields but 1am sure the people of Breeding and the surrounding country will never forget him The oldand young alike have learned to love this good man who worked so hard for them for ten days He has been a friend to all saint and sinner alike and they all realize it and appreciate it Though they may not have said so in so many words their faces have shown it He leas made the people feel that it is real ¬ ly worth while tp live right even if there was to be no hereafter that it pays to be good even in this world but vo one who has looked into his honest face and heard his earnest words can doubt that there is a hereafter though they may not understand or realize just what it means to be a Christian yet they do know that he through some power unknown to them has learned the great truth Ihave thought while he was withus and since he has gone that even the Christian people do not realize the sac ¬ rifice he is making when he leaves his family and goes out to do the great work he is doing No doubt there are ether positions which he is qualified to hold that would not require so much physical exertion and pay a great deal more in dollars and cents than he is MOW receiving and yet he leaves his wife and children and goes out to do this great work for humanity How many of us would do the same thing How many of us would leave eur home even for a short time to engage in some work for the betterment ef the human race How few of us alas do even in our homes and in our ewn neighborhod the little things we could and should do from a worldly standpoint to make others happy Yet he devotes his whole time to this work Can we not then even though we are rot Christians do something to make thers happy Surely such a life is an inspiration to any one Personaly I owe Bro Tally a debt I can never repay and I wish to say to all who may read this If you ever have an opportunity to hear him preach by all meahs2 listen to him he will tell you something worth while and will tell it in a plain sensible manner and you cannot fail to be benefitted by it Even from an educational standpoint kis sermons are interesting but when we realize that the words we hear are coming from an honest heart it means more than mere historical facts It means that Bro Tally is interested in you and in me and is preaching for us and has the interests of the human family at heart As his blessings have rested upon the peoplein and around Breeding so may Gods blessings rest upon him and his family is the wish of A Sinner r Darkies Visit the Store kept by John Frazer and Press Williams is Shot THE WOUNDS WILL NOT PROVE re trialThere New Livery v Mr

not a doubt but several dar ¬ kies and perhaps some white persons are bootlegging whisky about this town and they ought to be caught It is said that several trips to New Hope are made weekly by parties who go for no other purpose but to bring in whisky They convey it in suit cases and it does look like with proper diligence they could be apprehendedIt is further said that white young men of this town go and deal with the vendors The best evidence that this last statement is a fact is that several of them have been seen on the streets in a drunken condition There is a law agaist public drunken ness and the town Marshal should ar restevery man he Sin that condi ¬ tion and take him before the County Judge who will require the offender to give an account of himself and where he gets his liquor t J i 1 li II Currie the pastor goodones according to the estimate placed upon them by the writer who had the pleasure of hearing all of the evening discourses with the exception of one The Speaker invariably went down into the depths of his subjects andextracted therefrom truths in a forcible and fearless manner I have always admired a minister of the Gos pel who preaches the truth regardless of fear or favor but everyone knows that there are preachers who will de- ¬ liver sugar coated sermons especially adapted to certain members of their congregations if they be present and as Rev Currie put it upon one occasion they have to be smoothed the right way all the time or they will get mad and pout Rev Currie is especially interested in the salvation of the little ones he preached a special sermon to them and he would gather them together at a great many of the services and have them sing songs and the little voices in sweet accord were beautiful and in ¬ spiring to the older people The song service was one of the attractive feat- ¬ ures of the meeting Misses Ina Hulse and Jennye McFarland presided at the organ alternately and it was through their efforts that the choir loft was fill ed with excellent singers at almost every service Fred McLean I I DinnerI 1 25 Base Ball Mr Jnof ft Thomas manager of Base Ball for the Chautauqua has been in commumcation with
