Lindley, Farm Agent has spent sev

considerable interest among the far

spent considerable time with Mr. Lin
dley while working on this project.
The cheese industry in North Caro
lina is growing but will make more
progress in the future.
In Penrose we have a good farm
ers co-op. cheese factory, a good mak
cr and good management. This can
be had in any section of the country,
but we have natural surroundings
and conditions here in Western North
Carolina that no other section of the
country can have. That is, good
cold, pure running spring water and
cool nights in the warmest weather.
This nffords the producer the oppor
tunity to produce an excellent qual
ity of milk. With this, the cheese
maker can be held responsible for ar
excellent quality of cheese.
The writer has talked with cheese
buyers and cheese lovers from the
far south states and he finds that
they don’t even know that cheese if
being made in North Carolina. The
consumers say that the best and a-
bont the only cheese that can be pur
chased in the South which one car

and it seHs ahout 10c per pound a-
bovc ether brands. We will admit
that New York makes good cheese,
but no better than what is being made
in North Carolina. The trouble is
this. North Carolina has not been en
gaged in the cheese industry but a
short time. The output is so small
that only a few of the North Caro
linians know that as good cheese, and
I believe more uniform cheese as can
be made any place is being made in
What we need is more dairy cows
and more milk. To accomplish this

I am lingering still with the old
campmeeting, because of the deep in
terest our fathers felt in it. It was
deemed a kind of pillar in the reli
gious world—there many a new life
began, the return of the backslider
ind the confirmation of the faithful.

one of these gatherings joyously

of her brother, Lu, (L. S. Gash)
Such messages of conversion, recla-
iTiation and wonderful individual or

vvent out in every direction from

clusively devotional and the partici-
oants were of one mind and in ac
In the old. form, the camp-meet-
’ngs are gone but the influences they
put in motion are still floating down
the current of time. During the war |
and the immediate 'years following j
the institution was dormant, not |
dead. Like the Lost Cause is yielded
to outside reverses but smoldered
under mental depressions and social
restraint. From the days of the He^
brew Passover and the Grecian Olym
pics men have deirded periodic re-|
unions. There still remained in the
southern heart a yearning for the'
u'ed to-bc. Now and then as the re-^
adjustment -of southern conditions |
began to take root accounts were
seen in the newspapers of informal
conferances being held with the view'
of reconstructing or rather reinsta-|
ting old industrial and business en
terprises. Soon the religiously in-j
dined began to talk and write of the
practicability of resussitating the old
regime. But one effort to renew
Davidson River camp-meeting was
made. The ranks of the old support
ers were so depleted and the sur
roundings so changed as to discour
age further efforts. In fact, the in
vasion of the decreasing ranks of the
old workers by a conftantly increas
ing new element “that knew not
Joseph” as to make the old methods
unworkable. Isolation is unpleasant
and indicates jrestlesness and looks
around for ways o^ escape. Small
improvised conferences looking to
this end ensued. ’ The joy of fellow
ship and co-working gave momentum
to the original scheme as to7 expand
iato the present day assemblies.
There is nothing more tangible in
southern reconstruction than the
transformation of the old camp-meet
ing into the summer meeting^s of t»-
day — the camp-meeting amplified
and modernized. Thus, Davidson
River unpretentious with circumscri
bed support and influence is embrac
ed in junaluska with boundless re
sources, Boiling Spring in Ridgecrest
and Weaverville in Montreat. In
stead of rough canopies we have im
posing auditoriums, elegant bunga
lows take the place of pole-tents and
commodious hosteries the place of
brush awning mess-nalls.
The photograph of the old camp-
meeting compared with its picture
of present day development reminds
one of the picture of a boy compared
with that of his manhood — the boy
ish lineaments are faintly discemable
in his enlarged self. So it is with
the dear old camp-meeting; it can
scarcely recognize itself in its man
hood attainments of to-day.
In its first picture are the outlines
of a simple folk, attentive to a simple
gospel presented in a simple way.
Nothing is thought of in these sum
mer meetings but devotion and evan
gelism. Nothing is done that does
not contribute to this eijd. The ob
ject is soul-saving only. Service is
regarded as a spontaneous outcome
of saving grace. Success in present
ing the truth varies according to the
personal gnd individuality of the min
istry, other things being 6qual.
Church organization was a'so simple,
conforming to respective denomina
tional usage only; yet without legal
or eccleseastical form, w^ithout State,
county or church fuiids charity is
dispensed in kind needed. Orphans
are placed in homes that they may
feel the warmth of family ties. The
sick man's crop is planted, plowed,
hoed or harvested as the season may
require. The sick are tenderly wat
ched, stimulated with herb teas cr
soothed with bark poultices. Hos
pitality is unalloyed; to charge a
stranger for a night’s lodging borders
on nigardliness. In a word, service
is not considered mandatory nor ren
dered from a sense of duty. It is
an outflow of renewed grace within.
The enlarged picture of Christian
effott 5s it has developed through the
last eight or ten decades is before us
in its actuality. It is seen as it is
to day. The copy from which it
came has faded out of view. Only
the janu3 eyes of' an—octogenerian
can see both. Many of the prom
inent lineaments of the former are
dimly traceable in the latter, he
l^nks, and that the sole relance on
the power of the spirit and word to
save and control is waning. In the
material world the word is, forward;
but in the religious it seems the time
is come to stop, look, listen, back to
the word. The task to be done and
done by this^generation is immeasur
able. When the eye of our faith
scans the field and takes in its stup
endousness the mind is overawed and
covers with the feeling: Impossible,
And so it is. Nothing short of the
sword of Jehovah and of Gideon will
produce a flight. Take the sword of
the spirit which is the word of God
and all things become possible, easy.

A very interesting entertainment
was given at the Auditorium Satur
day night, consisting of “Living
Pictures,” posed by members of the
faculty and students. A large pic-
ture-frame was erected and the “fi
gures” sat behind it. Well-known
characters were presented ; viz,
George and Martha Washington,
Queen Victoria,. John Bull, Unch
Srtin, Kaiser Wilfielm, Lincoln, and
ipharlie Chaplin representing real
characters; and “Gold-du^ Twins,”
“Old Dutch Cleanser,” “Aunt Jfemi-
nia,” “Fiberlord,” Cream of Wheat,”
“Red Devil Lye,” well-known pos
ters; and “Mother Machree”, song
bjft Miss Pike, figure posed by Miss
Julia Trowbridge and finale “Statue
of Liberty,” posed by Miss Baber.
The pictures were lighted by our
moving picture machine, and were
a great success. Two readings w^ere
interspersed, one by Miss Letha

boy scrambling to his feet and hurry

while he was back again and droi>-
ping on his knees, took up the prayer
where he had left off. “If I should

white gowned form was tucked away
in bed, the grandmother asked the
boy why he had so rudely run away
in the midst of his prayer. You
surely did not think or you would
not have done it.
“But I did think, grandmother,
and that is why I had to stop. You
see I’d upset Teddy’s menagere and
stood all his wooden soldiers on their
heads, just to see how he’d tear a-
round in the morning. But if I
should die 'fore I wake—^why I did

So I had to go down and fix them all
right before I could finish my pray
