Visitor Enunciates Small Tjwi l»«na.

•Mr * tk (. a mg» that was visiting
i Mr. Frown, of the Record force Hu's
week, while events were being discuss
j ed since he visited in Goldston and
Ciler Ciyt some several years ago.
We listened with rapt attention be
cause all that was said had a signific
ance that is all too true an 1 the sen
tences were as faithful to facts as
phrases can make it.
i “Take donation parties, for in
stance,” said the visitor, “everybody
is always there especially those who
have an abundance of unprofitable
goods to give. Those who may not be
long to the sect, clan, elite or the ag
gregation it happens to be, will also
go because they think the folks of the
town are just grand people, and no
! body has notified anyone to stay at
! Mr. Brown remarked that once he
. knew an old lady to take five pounds
of boiled rice to a pounding of a
preacher. She boiled the rice, she said,
jto enlarge her symptoms of charity
and also to make her gift look more
formidable and prominent.
“No one seems to know,” said the
visitor, “just why they go to these
putting out, anonuncement, debuts, so
i cials or donation events and he was
reminded of old Col. Buuchgrass, a
Southern statesman who was once sent
to Congress and on his arrival in
Washington he was asked who sent
him there. Well, he said, I have been
here long enough to see how the laws
are made and get a few details and
when I left home I surely believed
! that my constituents sent me, but
j since I have learned as much as I have
1 durned if I don’t believe the devil sent
! “The intentions of all of them are
good,” said Charley Brown, “but the
result is doubtful.”
“Yes,” said the visitor, “It reminds
me of a Woman’s Club up in Raleigh
wuere l have oeen living to long, they
sent motto cards to the different mem
bers of the senate at Washington ’to
ther year and on which were inscrib
ed such legends as ‘Will you enjoy the
horcors of hell as much as you have
enjoyed the fleshpots of monopoly? 1
‘Where do you expect to spend eter
nity?’ It did them a whole lot of
good in sending but the benefit was
all on their side. The senators didn’t
notice the evcellent job of printing
and designing on. the cards.
There was a long silence. “Did you
ever notice,” said Charley Brown,
“that when a lot of people get to
gether and try to be a whole lot bet-
; ter than they feel, a painful silence
. swoops down on them occasionally.”
“Yes/' said the visitor, “just like a
! buzzard swooping down to enjoy the
dead silence and environment sur
• rounding the resting place of a dead
l calf out behind the clump of cedar
► trees on a sold December day.”
r i “Well,” said Mr. Brown, “this an
, nouncing an engagement of a young
lady steen weeks before the marriage
| at some party specially designed to
• meet the occasion with monogram
> cards, a rose bud, a petal from a pea
• blossom or some folded enigma that
| has to be explained to be understood,
'what is your opinion as to that?”
“Reminds me of when Mrs. Doug
■ lams anonunced the engagement of
Rebecca Folsom,” said the visitor,
• “She was engaged to marry Ebenezer
( Longfellow and all thought it a shame
! as Eb was an old widower. One old
lady, however, replied that a woma.i
’ had only two chances, they must eith
\ er marry a widower or marry a bache-
I lor—a man who had never been mar
[ ried or ore ,who had. Then one of those
. painful silences you spoke about fell
upon the parlor.”
“Same thing in regard to these
newly-weds,” continued the visitor.
“It is painful to endure the necessary
evils following a wedding of socially
I I inclined folks. They must call all the
town together occasionally and have it
! clearly known that they are really
J married and shefw them that every
' body is in accord with their decision
and the happy event is wholesomely
’Stoo bad that times change ,'ut men
i and principles never.
j IN MEMORY OF GRANDMOTHER.
| Dear grandmother from us has
gone to be with us no more here, in
I this old world. O, how we miss her
dear face; there is no one that can
! fill her place. It seems that life is not
to me just what it ought to be since
I God has taken grandma away.
Her greatest desire was to be true
to her God and to help somebody I
along life’s pathway. She longed to
see her grand children become noble
men and women, and if I could only
i live to be the man she would have had
; me to be, I woul feel that life would
be worth while.
j Iso often think of the happy mo
; ments she and I have spent together,
i and how she told me of God and His
! love for me. Now her dear room has
! no charms for me, because she is;
! not there to speak a kind word or j
; give me a sweet smile or tell me
| good night. Long years will not cause
i me to forget her sweet face. I still j
count as purest and best of all the
i women I have ever, my grand mother. !
Her purity was as a flaming fire. I j
can still feel the smoothing touch
of her loving hand. The whole world is
j in need of grand mothers like her. Ev- ,
I ery noble impulse of life awakens in
me at the thought of her. I can find
no words that would express the ap- j
preciation of such a friend. I hope |
some day to meet her in a happier,
. Her grandson, _
