OUR FRIEND IS NOT DEAD;
HE IS BEGINNING LIFE.
There is no death! The stars go down
to t'Ue upon some fairer shore,
And, bright in Heaven's jeweled
They shine forevermore.
These words of the poet have
brought great consolation to many
grief-torn souls since the lines were
written, but we had never fully
grasped the sweetness of the thought
nor the beauty of the words until we
stood beside the bier of our good
fri. : d. Dr. Chalmers D. Chapman,
la: Friday. There we could really
uiu ?rstand the meaning of the
\w. is: "There is no death." There
W!'.s nothing about the associations
of the day to suggest death. There
was peace apparent, and joy suggest
ed in the surroundings, and love
manifest in everything about the
place. ,\ star had gone down, to rise
upoi. a fairer shore; bright in
heaven's jeweled crown to shine for
Dr. Chapman had not even stopped
preaching, for the greatest sermon of
his life was that transmitted to the
people who came and stood by the
body as it lay in state from 12 to 2
o'clock, down there at St. Philips ?
his place of service and sermons.
Little children who had often been
blessed by the presence and kind
word; of their friend, came to see
him that day. One girl, leading a
group, seemed to express the
thoughts of all when she said as she
looked upon him in his peaceful
sleep: "Isn't he beautiful?''
Men and women in all walks of life
came, to see him, and men gathered
in groups and spoke of the fact that
no one in all the thirty-five years of
Dr. Chapman's life here had ever
been heard to say one unkind word
about this saint.
The colored people came, and look
ed upon the face of their friend, and
thanked God for the influence of the
Tu otfer sympathy to Dr. Chap:
mar.1.- only daughter, or to her hus
band who was in every sense of the
word a real son, would be to simply
follow an age-old custom, for cus
tom- sake. Sincerity prompts a dif
ferent message, and urges one to join
with this daughter and son in a spirit
of thanksgiving for the life of that
great man ? a life that was, indeed, a
benediction upon the community and
all the people therein.
Dr. Chapman is not dead. Saints
do not die. There is no death. The
stars go down to rise upon some
fairer shore, and bright in Heaven's
jeweled crown, they ; iiine forever
FINEST CIVILIZATION EVER
KNOWN IS NOW IN THE MAKING
When a woman goes down into the
valley of the shadow of death to bring
a new life into the world, those who
love her best are concerned lor the
moment only. by the intense suffering
that she endures, and think but little
at the time about the great miracle
that has been performed, nor do they
at the moment give much thought to
the future of the new life that has
The world is suffering the pains
and pangs of the birth of a New
Civilization ? a creature that is to be
so much liner and greater than any
we've ever known that the present
suffering will soon be forgotten in the
joy of the New Age. A short time
ago the world bowed and kow-towed
at the foot of the throne upon which
sat the king and queen in all their
royal splendor. Emperors and Czars
were all-powerful in their absolute
monarchies. Here in America we had
enthroned Wealth as the King, and
the masses here were called upon to
pay the same homage to this absolute
monarch aa the masses in the several
countries of the Old World were ex
pected to pay to the royal ruler in
those nations' and countries. I
But the old order dieth, and a New
Civilization is struggling for its first
breath, wrapped in its swaddling
clothes, crying lustily in an effort to
attract the attention of those about
Spain, Poland, Italy and other na
tions have dethroned royal rulers, and
dictatorships are established as the
first step from royal throne to rule'
by tho masses. Russia is struggling <
from its days of the Czar to the new ^
order, and is making great headway. .
India sends one little half-fed, un- ]
clothed man to London,and the Brit
ish Empire trembles as his soft-fallen,
"^are-footed steps announce his arriv- (
?il in the presence of the once power
ul, mighty king and queen. Ger
many and other European countries
?.re casting aside the royal rule for
adoption of plans and principles em
inating from the people. South
Vmerican countries have, within the
jast few years, unseated the old rul
-i's and uprooted the old way. It is
world-wide in its scope, this struggle
or demolishment of dynasty and the
ostablishment of democracy.
Here in the United States the
changes that have been wrought dur
ing the past decade are even more
wonderful than in any other country
on earth. We have been living in
che greatest revolution that the world .
has ever krjown. We have changed
our god, and now are showing a will- ,
ingness to serve humanity rather than !
the human who happened to possess ;
che wealth. Time was, a short time I
ago, when bankers and mill owners
und big merchants were about all that \
?minted for anything in this country j
of ours. No thought was given to ^
the working man or the farmer. Just ;
so our "leaders" had good business, i
and were faring finely, everything j
was o. k.
Not so, now, thank God. The at- ;
tention of the nation is now directed j
to the welfare of the human being. |
The concern of the leaders is now di- ?
rected toward mankind instead of j
money. It used to be, just a few short
years ago, that the working man and '
the farmer were about the only people
who were made to suffer. During
those days the working man or farm- 1
or who said anything about the mat- j
ter was classed as a bolshevist or
a knocker or sorehead. Then came 1
the time when the small business man,
the lawyer, the doctor, the teacher i
were brought into the agony room,
and these added their cries of dis- j
.?onient to that of the worker and
farmer. The mighty voice was heard
? from pulpit, platform, press and
.he school room.
Today the man of great wealth is
looked upon with scorn, suspicion
and hatred, instead of being wor
shipped as was the case a short time
Today the cry of a hungry child
is heard above the clanking coins of
the rich man.
Today the voices of great men are
raised in criticism of concentrated
wealth in a manner much more harsh
than was ever employed by the soap
box street-corner orator of the past.
Today the daily newspapers are
speaking for the common man and
masses in a manner and in terms
much more blunt than the bravest of
"labor papers'' dare to use a decade
Today the revolution is on, more
than half way in its great course, and
Tomorrow ? there is to be a civil
ization established in this little old
world of ours that will be so much
finer than anything ever known be
fore that the suffering, the agony, |
endured in its making will be forgot- I
ten, much as the mother forgets her
pangs when the precious child of her
dreams becomes a reality, held close
ly and fondly to her bosom.
Chalmers Durand Chapman
0 Friend, you made the world seem
And love was kinder, faith more true,
The road less hard, the final goal
Surer, because of you.
You loved the right, forgave the
Had use for laughter, balm for tears.
Your selfless service, brave and
Robbed life of half its fears.
Where shall we go when lights burn
And sorrows fall not bringing you?
The way the shadows come and go
You always knew!
Will you forget in that great Peace,
Immortal Love enfolding you,
Our need, where sorrows never
And friends are few?
Be still, 0 heart! love cannot die! [i
Look up! No longer sadly weep.
See high upon the Hills of Horn* j
He shepherds still the sheep.

On November 11th, at his home in ]
Brevard, there was brought to its
earthly close, a life of singular <
beauty and usefulness. Brevard's ;
most beloved resident, Rev. Chalmers t
Durand chapman, passed on that i
day, into "God's Other Room," after j
an illness of three days. (
For thirty-five years, Mr. Chapman
had made his home in Brevard, s
Twenty years was he the Rector of j
St. Philip's Episcopal church, and aft- a
er his retirement from active service,
he was, for fifteen years longer, a I
spiritual guide, a counselor, and t
friend beloved, not only to his for- e
mer congregation, but to all Transyl- c
vania county. ; 1
For fifty-eight years, Mr. Chap- 1
man was a minister of Christ ? fifty- 1
;ight years of such abundant, fruit
ful service as can be given only by 4
sne whose life is centered in God. 1
The character of Mr. Chapman can
3e best described by saying that he
ivas like his Master. Like him in
loving, like Him in serving, like Him
in compassion for the sorrowing, the
ignorant and the sinful ones. He and
his Master were alike, too, in the
sveryday, human side of life. Alike
in the simplicity of their lives, and
in gentle, human friendliness, alike
in the serene, yet gladsome outlook
upon life; in the delight in the lone
liness of nature; and strikingly alike
in their love for little children. No
one has ever so entered into the
heart of Brevard's childhood, as did
"The dead who die in the Lord
rest from their labors, and their
works do follow them."
Ah! Yes. The weary ones re
freshed, the struggling ones encour
aged, the lives enriched by his ex
ample and teaching ? all these will
follow him. The seed he has sown
for the Lord of the Harvest, will still
"Increase, and bring forth, some
thirty, some sixty, and some an hun
"What though he standeth at no
Yet in white raiment, on the golden
Where love is perfect, and no step
He serveth as a priest for evermore."
? Mary C. Jenkins.

(Waynesville Mountaineer) I
As business men have known for
years, there is not enough buisenss in
Waynesville ,t? support two news
papers, the kind that people deserve.
Last week after Mr. Hale purchased
The Haywood News, some of the j
leading business men of the city |
brought together the lessees of The
Mountaineer and Mr. Hale. They put
it up to the two parties that if we
had any consideration for the future
of this community that we would
work out some arrangement whereby
there would be only one paper in the
field. This was done. The News
ceased publication in order to make
The entire personnel of this news
paper. your only news medium, both
in Waynesville and the majority of
the county, asks that you help us .
make your paper better. No change
in policies will be made. No change
in prices will be made because of
lack of competition. All news will be
presented in an unbiased manner.
We expect to give you the news and
give it to you on time. We ask that
you help us in every way to make
this paper even better.
As the town grows this paper will
grow\ It is our desire that some day,
and that not very far off, we will be
in a position to give to the people of
this section a paper several times a
week instead of once a week.
