Jenks had a queer dream the other night.
He thought he savr a prize-fighters' ring, and
in the middle of it stood a doughty littler
champion who met and deliberately knocked

burly -looking fellows, as they advanced to
th- attack. Giants as they were in size, the
valiant pigmy proved more, than a match for
them-. Jt was all so- funny that Jenks woke

Prof. EUsha MitehiU.
A CEfAPTER OF HITHERTO CNWRITTEX
frit was the last week in June, 1857,
and abont the middle of the five months'
svssion of the school in central Swn
ri anoa, where I was tencliins, when the"

where onthe Black Mountain. He
had started on Saturday to cro-s the
mountain to Iiig Tom Wilson's on
fCaney river, in Yancey county, and
failing to return on the next Mondav,
as he was expected to do, his son and
daughter, who were witli him at Mr.
SteppX and were his assistants in tak
ing his survey of the motfutain's
height, fent immedi:itly to Nyilson's
to se if anything was wrong.! Find
ing th:it he had failed to leach that
placevthey atouce had the alarm
founded N that their father was lost.
13 v this time, thiee or four davs had
el:tpsed, and Professor Mitchell not
having returned, two or three hundred
men, from both sides of the great
mountain, hurried to the search.
The search went on several day,
and every day the news would come
down the river that the lost had not
been found. -1 had r not j yet gwne

already, and because I had been on a
trip to Mt. Mitchell only .six days be
fore. Prof. Mitchell disappeared. But
I went at last. I think it was on the
morning of the eighth day after the
disappe.-rance, that two of live citizens
of Swanauoa came to t lie school
: house w here I was teaching, and ak
; ed me if I would Jtdjourn my school
iand beconieone o? the fresh company
I to go to the mountains in search ot the
lost man. liiey liad been told that I
had been on nil sides of the Black
Mountain and'was ouite famiii ir with
erci-v face of its ru .Tired scenery, and
that they wished me to le d tlir com
pany on the -search. I consented to go.
jis they-dc-ired. and w; agreed to meet
at Alexander's at 2 p. "in., on that day,
with rations for three days. We met
-on time at the place appointed, and at
sundown we entered the inounUr.n
hwise, as it was called, where we found
a number of tired and - disheartened
men, who had bcen-again unsuccessful
in their search for the lost. Mr. Jesse
Stepp was there ami I soon iound that,
as lie' was so well acquainted with
every ridge, rimlefc and knob of the
: mountain,, he had at tir-t assumed the
i command of all the forces, and - had,
; with godll judgment, divided the men
"into squads, with -a leader . to each
squad, ttiid that the search had had
much !y.-tem and order. Mr. Stepp
t ren owned and lived at wnat is now
called the Patton house at the. foot of
niouiitain. Prof. Mitchell made
Sfeon's house his headou irters.

in the moss that had the appearance of
a humau track. He carefully remov

hurried down the hollow to a small
creek that ran down to our right.
Just before reaching the creek wecjnne

mo.;s with scrapes in the moss as

We then hurried down the creek, and

men to assemble that night at the
cabin near the high peak. He then
announced his determination to return
that night and inform the anxious,
tired crowd of men of our success.
Mr. Patton and I, though tired, de
termined at once to accompany Stepp
and Harris that night to the top of
the mountain. Mr. Stepp acted as
guid, and at two o'clock next morn
ing we reached Mitchell's peak, worn
out by our almost constant tramp over
the mountains for twenty-two hours.
Perhaps that was the first and also the
last time that four men ever made the
trip from the foot to the top ofvthe
highest mountain east of the Rockies,
with the sable mantle of night resting
01 its dark, balsam covering.
When we reached the cabin where
till the weary, anxious men were wait
ing, -and announced the fact that the
lost was found, and that he was then
lying at the bottom of a pool of clear
mountain water, there were many tears
brusned from manly cheeks, but all

MR. PEARSON MAKES OCT A STRONG CASE
FROM. THE BIBLE AOAIN3T T1IE DEYIL.
The clouds and the raiu made the
atmosphere in the Y. M. C. A, Hall a
little chilly yesterdav at XI o'clock,
but by uoon Kev. U. G. Pearst)n had
warmed it up considerably. The sub
ject of the li ble reading for the morn
ing wis --Sitan," and the Bible
picture 'of his character was brought
out very fully. Incidentally, Mr.
Pearson excoriated tat lei's and calumni
ators and made keen thrusts at church
bazuare, and at horse races, spirit ua
ism, etc. 1
The text for the reading was:
lievelatious xxii:9: "And the great
dragon was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan, which de
ceireth the whole vu)rl4; "he was cast
out into the earth, and his angels were
cast out with him.'"
In the B.bleSatan is held up as the
great enemy of God a up man. He is
hrst called a serpent; second, Satan,
wnicu means adversary; third devil,
which means evil one: and last the
Great Dragon, which means literally,
destruction. The Bible description o

is a grand climax, showing

From Gen. iii:4-19, it will be learne'd.
hat the same argument that would
disprove the personality, of Satan,
would disprove the personality of
Adam and Eve, and therefore our own
personality. From Job1 i:0-9, it will
be seen that the same argument that
would deny the personality of Satan
would deny the personality of Uod.
lo maintain that the devil is the
evil within man, said Mr. Pearson,
is non-sense uud blasphemy. Matthew,

lhe evangelist discussed the charac
teristics of the devil. In Genesis, iii:l,
he is called a serpent, to illustrate his
subtlety, That it is a characteristic

The devil resists God's servants, and
especially preachers. When the devil
gets behind a preacher who iS preach
ing for his own aggrandizement and
toplease everybody, he simply folds
his arras and says, "Go ahead you don't
do any harm." But when Satan gets
behind a preacher who is determined to
speak out, he begins to say:;- You

tions should not criticise -their pastors.

dirt as the rest of man kind, they are ;
subjected to the sume- temptations, and

As an illustration of the temptations
to-which preachers are sometimes sub
jected, Mr. Pearson related an incident
from his own experience. He Went to
a town to preach, and was enUrtaincd -by
a gentleman who w;ts.the President
of a fair at w hich horse-races were to
be held. The devil whisjjered to him
that, under the'eircumstaucesit would
te improper for him to condemn the .
horse-racesin his sermon. He deter
mined to give the races a blow "be

so; and after tha sermoii his hait
thanked him for what he had said.
Another work of the devil is the
counterfeiting of tbe work of God.
Some K?ople-siiy there is nothing in
spiritualism orl "seances;" but there
is something in them. They are of,
the devil. ' They are simply iittempU
to counterfeit God's work.
.Satan is a h'indererT- (Thessalouianv,
ii:18. ) The master work of Satan is to
steal the words of God out of one's
heart. People of fen hear the woijd of
God, it fatts on their hearts, it; is seed
in fallow ground. Uefore it is covered
up, the -devil comes along, and , by
means of some light and t rival conver
sation, some trashy reading, or the
like, blows the seed away."- This is the
devil's master work.-"
In conclusion, Bible verses were
read showing that th;; devil will not
forever curse the world,, for the
Lord Jesus will come hereafter, and
The morning service was closed with
prayer by Key. P. J. Caraway, and the

A Ptea for the Farmer.
Out of a population of 0,000,000,
says the Fanner and Dealer, there are
probably about 12,000,000 who earn
wages and live by work. Included iu
this .count is something over 0,000,000
engaged in agricultural pursuits, and it
appears that we have no other single
industry that emplovs and furnishes a
living for so many of our iieople. Ill
fact, this one industry feeds all the
peopL-, and no other industry cap live
without it. Here thon, we see that we'
have in this country more than 40,-
000,000 pooplejiving without" earning
any wages, and mo.-t of them lire di
rectly or indirectly off the earnings of
t hose w ho toil, and they, with all Ttlie
dealer and traders, etc., are dependent
on the success of the agriculturist and
the protection of th:i,Cmtfjst. .Then
it is proper for us to no Limine this
most important of all dJ industries,
and see what dang'ers Uneaten. Now,
what t lie farmer wants first is a -good
homJinarket forall his surplus products.
This cannot bt; assured vvWrt'e vye import
in one yearjiiore than 800,000,000 of
food and live stock, not indudiiigeofv
fee, tea, s agar andinolasses. Why
should we import into our couutiy
about $:i0.000,0(K) worth of vegetables,
being cabbage from Holland, potatoes
from Scotland, potatoes, beans and
peas from Canada? If the farming
interest is w hat we cjuim for it, then is
it proper foi us to import Sl,2X),000
worth of hay and $0,000,000 worth of
breadstuff s and 20,000,000 dozen eggs,
part'y from Denmark and Sweden?
Ve think it is bad policy. The farm
er needs to be cared for first, last and
all the time, in orler that other indus
tries may thrive with him and good
vages be paid to liiTnufacturing oper-:
fives as they go on turning our vast re-
sources from raw material rinto that
which ii necessary for our welfare and
safety in peace or war. Diversified
farming is our only hope aud safe
anchorage at this time, and iu it is thy
whole business. Let the diversified in- .
terest be built up from our own raw
material and means at hand, and tha
people who are engaged iu the work
will consume all the agriculturist pro-,
duces, the market wfil be at home, and
the nation will grow iu prosperity,
whi h U something that no nation has
vet done without diversified interest.
