The Baracaa Class of the First Bap
tist church had its second annual ban
quet at the Coweta Cafe Tuesday night
at 8 o’clock. A few minutes after 8
fifty men had reported "ready” to do
yeoman service at the festive board,
and it was a jolly company. Everybody
was in a smiling, expectant and recep
tive attitude - especially towards
“Bre’r Turkey.” that was to be later
the cynosure of all eyeH. The cafe was
tastefully decorated with evergreens
and paper hunting. Its welcome was
very cheery and homelike.
The first thing on the programme
was the Baraca, or old time, camp
meeting hand-shaking. Fifty men
formed themselves into a circle. Then
Mr. Henderson, the teacher of the
class, broke the circle and began to
shake hands, singly, with every man
to his right, followed by the first man
to his right, etc., until he and every
man had made a complete circle and
returned to his original place. It was a
sight pleasing to see--fifty men laugh
ingly, cheeringly, jollily shaking
hands, all at the same time. You
would have thought the occasion was a
picnic, and that everybody had turned
politician and was making "fair weath
er” with evrey member of the family.
The effect was electrical. It put all at
ease and destroyed the last vestige of
Incidentally the question was pro
pounded. immediately after the hand
shaking, how many times had each
man shaken and been shaken if there
were exactly fifty men in the circle?
Can the reader say?
After the handshaking the caterer
announced that the turkey was ready to
be offered upon the altar of good cheer
and good will among men. Drs. Cates
and Lee stood among the tables and
ushered all to their seats. Grace was
pronounced by our pastor, Rev. J. F.
Singleton, after which Perry’s orches
tra discoursed strains of sweetest mu
sic, all the while savory viands being
served by courses. “The Mocking
Bird,” as a violin solo, was heartily
After the inner man had been regaled
came the flow of wit and good cheer,
and feast for the soul. Justice cannot
be done the occasion by trying to re
produce in cold type the warmth and
enthusiasm that exhaled from the
hearts of those who responded to calls
from the master of ceremonies. Rev.
Mr. Singleton was ca led upon first,
and he spoke of the meaning, of the
Christmas Bpirit, the Christ spirit.
Then the master of ceremonies said he
would call upon a man of few words,
also of few inches, but every inch a
man—Dr. John R. Cates. Dr. Cates is
assistant teacher of the class, and just
ly loved by every member for his ster
ling worth and genial disposition.
The next call was upon a leader in
three senses- by the right of being a
Duke ; by the right of his honored name,
Lee; and by the right of having been
selected as chairman of the committee
of arrangements—Dr. Duke Lee. The
thanks of the class were formally and
heartily extended to Dr. Lee for the
magnificent banquet he had planned
and executed to the smallest detail,
like a general would marshal his forces.
Dr. Lee reminded the class that we
had enrolled 215 men since our organi
zation a year ago last September, and
that we needed a new stake to reach—
a new slogan to cry. Happily, Bro.
Singleton suggested, ”300 men for
1910.” It was unanimously adopted,
and the boys pledged their earnest en
deavors to make our enrollment 300
men before the next year should close.
The next call was for a gentleman
who is a man in more senses than one
—Mr. LeRoy Mann—who knows how
to man-age, when it comes to the pre
paration of a banquet. Mr. Mann as
sisted Dr. Lee on the committee of ar
Mr. I. N. Orr, sr., responded to a
call as a man interested in everything
for the betterment of mankind, and one
friendly to young men. Mr. Orr spoke
from a heart of love, and his words
were an inspiration to all who heard
him. He received hearty and prolonged
Mr. E. R. Barrett responded to a call
as the “Doorkeeper” in the Lord’s
house. David said: “I had rather be
a doorkeeper in the house of the Lord
than to dwell in the tents of the wicked
forever. ’ ’
The president of the class was next
called upon, as being a hustler for the
welfare of the class and a trusted man
of affairs ai the Central railroad
station—a man who carries the “Cars
well” and sees that, they arrive at their
proper destination—Mr. W. S. Carswell
A man was then called upon who re
joices in the success of the Baraca
movement because it vitally affects for
good the institution over which he pre
sides, and because lte is a young man
himself—Prof. W. L. Strieker. Prof.
Strieker made a telling speech, full of
aot quotations from classic sources.
He said he had seen and felt the
(luence of the Baraca Class on many of
the young men who are students in his
Next the king’s jester was called
udoii to speak in behalf of the absent
members of the Philathea Class, of
which he is assistant teacher—Mr. I.
N. Orr. jr. Mr. Orr facetiously re
marked that he knew he would be asked
to speak at this banquet, and accord
ingly bad prepared a fitting speech :
but that, upon request, he had given
his speech to his father, who had only
a few minutes ago so nobly acquitted
himself. He complimented his father
on his eloquent delivery. Mr. Orr
promised to assist, by his kindly offices,
everv single Baracaite to launch ills
barque unin thy untried sea of matri
mony. (Prolonged applause.)
Mr. Mays, a student of the Southern
School of Telegraphy, responded on
j behalf of the boys of the school. He
j said he was proud of his membership
in the Baraca Class: that the class
brought much joy and happiness into
the lives of the young men, who are
