  • Sam W. Small will speak on prohibition at the Page theater April 21 at 7:30 p.m. Admission free.
    Dr. Small is a man of exceptional attainments. He was born in Knoxville, Tenn., in the city founded by his family forbears; graduated with high honors from Emory and Henry college in Virginia, and after admission to the bar in Tennessee became private secretary to ex-President Andrew Johnson and followed that statesman's political fortunes to the United States senate. He is a trained journalist, many years editor of leading southern newspapers, principally with the noted Atlanta Constitution. He is the author of several books.
    By appointment of President Hayes he served as secretary of the American commission in Paris in 1878, and as a delegate from this country to the international literary congress of that year. He has served in many notable national conventions of political, commercial and reformatory character. While in the United States army in Cuba in 1899 he was military supervisor of public instruction, engaging in the reorganization of the public schools of the island.
    In 1885 Mr. Small, then a prominent editor and public official, was converted through the preaching of Rev. Sam Jones, the great Georgia evangelist, and joined with him in the holding evangelistic services in the greater cities of the United States and Canada. Those were the most famous and successful religious meetings ever held in this or any other country. Dr. Small has led campaigns resulting in the closing of more than 10,000 drink shops, and is recognized in all quarters of the nation as one of the foremost apostles of prohibition.
