The Vermont Distinction.
From The Hickory Record.
If you examine the records you
will be surprised to know (at least
we were) that Vermont is the on
ly state in the union which has gone
Republican consistently since 1388.
Pennsylvania has the nearest rec
ord, with an independent deflection
in. 1912. That year of 1912 broke
many records. On the other hand
there are nine states which have
gone Democratic consistently since
1888. Alabama, Arkansas, Florida,
Georgia, North Carolina, South
Carolina, Texas. Louisiana, Missis
sippi and Virginia.
Rev. R. M. Hoyle, Aged And Belov
ed Minister Preaches Great
Sermon On Oct. 21.
; Editor Star:
Sunday, October 21, was a red
letter day for Polkville Methodist
church. The occasion was a dedi
catory service, the weather ideal,
the audience was large, apprecia
tive and orderly; and the lions of
the occasion were Rev. R. M. Hoyli,
affectionately known as “Rob
Hoyle” by his hosts of admirers of
all denominations; and his militant
running mate, Rev. J. A. Cook. Both
have passed the allotted age of
three score and ten; both are re
tired on the superanuated list; and
both exemplify the martial type of
a vanished age In which stern old
Peter Cartwright of the Methodist
Boanerges order, and Drury Dob
bins of the Baptist church. Both of
these militant Sons of Thunder who
graced the occasion of yesterday
were large men in every sense of the
word. Both were self-made, both
picked their course by the stars and
were renowed as fearless, original
thinkers; and Cook is also renown
ed as a formulator, organizer and
( builder of churches.
The dedication sermon was deliv
' ered by Doctor Hoyle; and with his
martial old time fire, which re
minded his auditors of the war cry
of Jehovah. While verging on
eighty, and while his voice is some
what shattered and his rugged
frame gives token of decay; his
zeal and mentality have not been

While Rev. R. M. Hoyle has no col

confer the D. D ; for he can out
preach nine-tenths of the ministers
who have a string of letters after
their names like the tail of a comet.
Rev. J. A. Cook deserves the title
of Hiram King of Tyre—or else that
of the Widow’s Son celebrated as
an ornate designer by history and
tradition. He gave a succinct his
tory of building of the original Polk
ville framed church edifice, erected
under pastorate of Rev. J. A. Cook
in 1893. A quarterly conference was
appointed for Polkville church, when
the site was in the forest. But the
building was erected in time for
conference, and the contractor was
paid $140. His assistants were
paid 73 cents a day; and eggs sold
for five cents, corn 40 cents, lard
six and a fourth cents; the pastor’s
salary was $650 a year.
The present building is a monu
ment to labors, energy and persev
eranve of the late Rev. A. T. Cor
dell, who served two years as pas
tor; while the parsonage, a modern,
tasty and spacious home was due
the executive of Rev. A. M. Avett.
Besides tne foregoing exercises, a
dinner was spread upon the ground
which was a triumph of culinary
skill and which was paid an ex
pensive compliment by sojourners
from Shelby. Kings Mountain, El
lenboro; Joe Martin of latter place
proving a true gastronomic genius.
Another feature was the vocal
and instrumental contest of tuneful
Levites. Prominent among the cru
saders for vocal harmony was seen
the fallen mantle of Maj. Oliver D.
Price decorating his son, S. O Price
of Lattimore, with his redoubtable
sextet of buzzers, Capt. A. M. Lat
timore of same place true evangel
of melody in the stirring strains of
Isaac Watts, and lydfSs of seraphic
sweetness as emanations from brain
of Charles Wesley; and Prank, Wal
ter, Clem Lee were numbered among
the prophets; and Misses Poteat
and Inez Whisnant featured as dul
cea song birds and with cunning
skill evoked melody from keys of a
piano. By means of moral suasion,
threat of heroic measures, a con
stable, and a club; the sad-eyed,
rough-necked fiddler of the occa
sion was restrained; and made to
swear he would never again dese
crate this place by his presence—a
vow he means to sedulously keep.
