I'onie to a Mav day In the latter part
of the Civil War. My father had
gone over to the pump station as he
joiiietlmes did early one morning.
When he returned, he was dejivted
and emotional, even his voice sounded
earful, and he related to the family
of how a young soldier, who was
impressions! Never! it lingers yet
in my mind, that fair face that tried
to hide its suffering by smiling. My
sisters and cousin fed him a part of
the berrieg and cream. He talked
with difficulty, and expressed a great
desire to have his parents come. He
lived only a few days but the parents
did come. I think If I remember right
that they were compelled to travel
by freight a part of the way in order
to reach their boy as early as possi
ble. .Being war times, conditions were
bad for travel. I can't remember If
he lived to see them, or not, but I
remember attending his funeral, in
our little country church, and a Bap
tist minister came up from Flint Hill
and conducted the service. These
parents were deeply grieved, and bent
with sorrow, both were cultured In
appearance and sweet faced. The
whole community turned out and
gave them their sympathy. The body
was placed in a small cemetery across
the railway from the church. In a
lonesome field. In after years the
father had frected to his memory a
small white slub, with bis name, reg

His Mmlly seemed to never tire of
showing their appreciation to the
pump man's family, and sent at one
time a gold medal he had won in

were sent to be placed on his grave,

Commenting 011 the I'nion county
ministers' appeal for the exercise of
censorship over the moving pic
tures, the Lancaster News fcays;
"Over in I'nion county, N. c. ao
ooriiiiig to The Monroe Journal, the
ministerial association, composed of
twenty-one ministers are urging the
exercise of a, censorship over the mov
ing picture theaters, but their plan
is to urge the patrons to refuse to
Attend when "sex" pictures are beins
shown. This Is all right, ns far as it
goes. liut. how is anyone to know
when such picture are to be shown.
and what about the pictures that are
shown every day which contain only
perhaps a few feet or film which is
objectionable, and how about the dif
ference of opinion as to what is and
what is not objectionable!
"The views of this paper on the
question of censoring moving pic
tures is well known. We have never
favored state censorship or any other
censorship so wholly impracticable.
tint we have stated on seveial occa
sions that, let alone, the producer
or moving pictures are going to kill
their own industry.
"A long time ago nearly everybody
kept liquor in their homes and served
it to guests with no more concern
than they now serve salad at the ta
ble. Some men, however, made hogs
of themselves; allowed liquor to get
the best of them, to make fools of
them. They went home and murder
ed their wives and children. That
Is what brought prohibition to us.
"The same applies to moving pic
tures. There are many, it cannot be
said with any degree of truthfulness
that the number is neglible, who like
to see the "sex" pictures, the sugges
tive scenes in what are otherwise
good, clean pictures. A large num
ber of people, likewise, would like to
have the bar-room, the brass rail and
mahogany counter, back again.
"The statement of some moving
picture theater managers that they
try to give the people what they
want, should be taken at its real
worth, which is nothing. The bar
room man, or the Infamous and
vicious bootlegger, may say the same
thing. If the people didn't want
blind-tiger liquor, they wouldn't pay
tor it. . - --- ---:.
"But when a tiran wants something
that even he, himself, will admit is
not good lor him, should he have it!
"There are some Southern towns
which have established boards of
censorship. We don't believe these
will ever avail anything and they
are wholly Impossible In the bring
ing about of the results desired. The
better way Is for the producers to
clean up their own screens; this they
have promised to do, it let alone, but
it is doubtful if they will. However,
the place to censor moving pictures Is
at the source, at the place and at
the time of production. A moving
picture, censored locally, may render
the whole picture impossible of show
ing, while if censored in the making,
only that part which is objectionable
would be omitted.

Your correspondent Is pleased to
learn that efforts are being made to
organize a county Grange. From per
sonal observation, while in the North
ern states, 1 became thoroughly con
vinced that no organization was doing
as much for the farmer as the Grange.
The appealing feature of the Grange
is that not only men but women and
boyg are- eligible for membership in
it, and their meetings afford social
recreation which Is sadly lacking in
the rural communities at this time.
Therefore, the local Grange move
ment has this correspondent's tin
qualified endorsement.

The essential features of the story,
which la one of great dramatic force,
have been retained while the anti
hypocrisy philosophy of the author
necessarily has been subordinated to
the general theme.

covers them parading under a mask
of hypocrisy and invites the common
people to attend his church. Eldon
Parr, a vestryman, unscrupulous and

man whom he has ruined. There is
a pretty love romance between the
Rector and Parr's daughter which
ends happily. The leading roles are
played by William P. Carleton and
