The Porseculiou of Democrats. ;
To illustrate the short-sightedness ?>rj
man, when ho attempts to look into!
the future, it is only necessary to refer J
"the rert'.ier to the fact of the recent (
change in the* public sentiment of:
South Carolina, which has been so un
expected ly h-ought about by the Re-j'
'^tiblieali Court now sitting in Charles-'
ton for the purpose of persecuting
Democrats because of their poli'ieal
faith. One month ago the slgnsof a
division in the Democratic party were
plainly to be seen, and citizen" in various-parts
of the Stale were already
preparing for the inaiururation of a
"campaign upon broader and better
principles,and one which would inevitably
purify the ballot box in South
Carolina. The Republicans at Washington
seeing and kmwing the pros-'
poet of this continued improvement
of our local affairs, ond realizing the
fact that without makin? war on some
of the Southern States that tlu-ir power
in the North would wane, they besought
themselves to set in motion j
^Binne device by which they might be,
" continued in po'wer. In their councils
the-great success which followed
their former onslaughts on the South,
was remembered, and tlrcy on this ac-j
"count, determined to persecute the
Democrats of this State, and by false ^
-swearing, and a malicious perversion
'of facts, to convict our citizens by]
packed juries. That the juries,
were packed, and were drawn for the.
Wicked and malicious purpose of con- J
victingour people for political reasons,;
we presume no one?not even the;
Court itself?will deny. The result 1
lias been, to solidify and unify the.
Democratic party in South Carolina,:
as it has not been since 1S7G. The pro- j
ceedings as published in the Xctosand^
Courier, of the Republican Court now j
attemntinir to convict Democrats of;
infamous crimes which they did not'
"commit, is enough to awaken nil the]
latent hatred of everything pertaining!
to the Republican patty, or their nd- [
ministration of the laws. Hon. Samuel
W. Melton, a son of South Carolina,
formerly respected for his high char-i
'atter, his natural endowments, and!
his legal attainments, in the hope that |
he may succeed the Judge who is soon i
to vacate his seat in the Republican'
^Court,appears as prosecutor,and there!
*Vlefaw?es his mother, while trying to'
'convict his former friends and neighbors
before packed juries. The iniq-i
uity of the proceeding stinks to heaven
and no true Carolinian can fail to
' despise a son who would desert her at!
this hour of her peril. The Political
Court now sitting in Charleston, and
before which the Hon. Samuel W.
-Melton is pouring out his vials of
wrath upon unfortunate Carolinians,
whatever the eftVct abroad, will makej
"us fight our political foes, more with
the intention of beating them down,
llian with any regard for the means'
employed. Every man in South Car-;
olina claiming the least intelligence
knows the Charleston Republican
Court was sent here to inaugurate the
campaign of 18S2, and every man possessing
any degree of common .sense'
knows that thecoaviclion of our people
will not remedy the alleged evils
-of which complaint is made. The use)
of bayonets anywhere is not pn)iular|
at the North, and hence the Court is
used for the dirty purpose of attempting
to break up the Democratic party.
Before these trials were commenced
a division in our ranks was imminent
?a division, too, which augured well
for South Carolina?a division which
"would purify the ballot-box?a division
which would make our criminal
Courts the protector as well as the
punisherof the weaker citizen?a division
which would enforce the law
for crimes against the person?a division
which would create that-healthy
public sentiment which would punish
a white man for assault upon the person,
yea, even for killing a negro.
The Democratic party of South Car-j
x)lina has instituted many wise and!
much needed reforms, and hasenacledj
many of the best laws on tlie Statute I
toooks, while the usefulness of the!
schools hai been greatly increased, and!
the taxes have been reduced to onehalf.
but it must be admitted that the
Courts and juries do not enforce the
criminal laws. No white man in this]
icounlry, since 1S76, has IkkI any renv;
cause to fear conviction for the killing!
of his neighbor, and althougb-Giirexchanges,-almost
daily jornlsh the details
of the most urutai murders, yet i
we very .sgidotu hoar of any whole-1
To remedy all the evils of which we;
?" 4?ive spoken is certainly a consummation
devoutly wished, and the
'remedy can come only when the people
of South Carolina are left free from
.Radical interposition, and can with
safety divide among tltemselves, and
;go before the Voters, where a fair expression
of their will can be had.
The Press and Banner says: "We
fciave no right to use the Legislature!
to reward political ends or to head off!
'our political adversaries. Let us act
so fairly and lwiiorably with all classes|
x>f our people that the Democratic
party may gain a lirm hold on the
-hearts of our people. No political
party can live by partisan legislation.
The eternal principles of right must
not be forgotten if we would perpeualel
good an honest government in South ]
Carolina. While there maybe good |
-and urgent reason for calling an extra |
session of the Legislature, yet we
should be sorry indeed if Governor
Hagood should announce that an extra'
session of that body was called in
order that the Democratic party may
gain two representatives in Congress."
The proposition of our contemporary i
is eminently correct, but its applica-j
lion is erroneous. A new apportionment
is not partisan legislation. It is]
merely removing a Radical gerry-j
mnnder, by which it is Imped to steal j
Congressmen in several districts.
After the proceedings in the United]
States Court, does the I'rcxtt ana tsan ncj,
belies we should give the Radicals
The above paragraph we take from
'the Winnsboro yews and Ilerul.il No ; j
Ave do not belive the Ryd'cals should j
take any advantage of us in any par-.
ttenlar. The fact is, after the .packing'
'of the Juries, and tlie political bias of
the Court, we are not sure that they
'deserve more than half a chance. Let j
us re-district or do anything else that j
will secure Democratic rule. The con-!
<cluct 'of th-e Court in Charleston is
merely apolitical machine with Re-,
publican juries to convict such Democrats
as tl>e 'Radicals may indicate.)
Congress would Leas just if it were to.
enact a law forbidding Democrats to j
'sit on juries? prohFbithig them from:
electing any of the membersof that;
party to ottice. For malignity, injustice,
and disgraceful conduct in general,
the Court now setting in Charleston
surpasses any drum head couit
martial ever lveld.

Slsewhere in the Pnrsn and Banner
it will be seen that General R. II.
Hemphill has been announced as aj
candidate for the Senate at the next
election. The General is "well known j
to our people as a politician, lawyer
and editor. As an editor he is out- j
spoken as a lawyer he is faithful to his
'clients, and as a politician his oratory;
-and his eloquence is effective, and
while a member of the Wallace House
aud the Legislature of 1878-'70 he was'
mcUrv, zealous and useful.
Next Monday has liceu set apart as I
the day on which the County Demo-,
era!in Club is lo he re-organized, and i
as that time approaches our people;
seem to he njore and more awakened j
to the importance of the work, which |
they must u<\ and the great necessity |
of choosing wise and discreet officers!
has been impressed upon many. Politically
speaking, our people appear to
recognize the fitfet that we are on llie
eve of a crisis, and that a proper choice
of a wise and conservative leader.
Around whom all the people may
rally, is of the utmost importance.
Much of this feeling is due to the
faithful and full reports as published
in the XaCi anl ('ottrirr of the pro
ceedings ot the iCo|>ni>lica:i ^'ourtj
which is tow sitting in Charleston for j
the trial of Democrats charged with j
participation in the election of ISSt).

Democrats, and to intensify their j
hatred to our political oppressors at;
Washington, than all the Democratic I
speeches which could hav* been de-j
livered in the State between new and i
the first of November. The faint cry
by white men which hud been rahs'ed
against the Democratic party in dif-J
ferent parts of the State will be hushed j
and any further opposition to the De-j
mocracy in South Carolina will be* re-1
garded as open warfare on the party,
and the participators will be treated j
with no more consideration than is
due to public enemies or to office-seeking
Democratic deserters to the Radical
Seeing this condition of affairs eve
are firmly of the opinion that the best
councils of our people will prevail,
and that the best and most satisfactory
leader will be chosen for Abbeville
county. The county chairmanship
is emphatically an office not to be
sought for personal advantage in the
campaign, but it is one which should
be accepted only tonne puouc goo?i, i
and for the purpose of teaming the!
whole people. If the President of the j
Club should actually be the best man
in the county, while suspected of belonging
to any ring of office-grabbers
he can serve us less 'effectively than j
could a worse man whose conduct
would not be doubted. If any considerable
nuniberof our people believe
that one of the candidates would use
the olfire, more for his own advantage,
than for public good, he should not be
elected. While saying this, we
are free to say, as we said last

the past horrid stories have been
told of packed conventions, and corrupt
bargains between office seekers in
the matter of speculating in the votes

we would warn our delegates against

Let us start right. To do tins it will
require on the part of delegates to the

GUITEAU AT TRATER.
One Colored Preacher His Onlj Spiritual
Consoler?His Kealtli Good. '
Washington*, April 15.-?In coftsnltation
with General Croker, the warden of}
the jail, as to tin* actions ami condition of
Guiteuu, he said that a remarkable change
bad of late eome over the conduct of his
prisoner; that he had now etui rely given!
up hope as to any favorable action of the
Court in Ikihc, but still believed that
President Arthur would look favorably
upon his case and pardon liitn. A day or
two ago Guiteau said to him, "I would',
rather hang on the 30th < f June than be i
imprisoned for life."
"lias any minister called to see Qui- |
te.ni to oiler him spiritual consolation?"
asked a correspondent. j
"One only, and he ? colored preacher. :
He came in otto day in company with an- 1
other colored man, and asked me if he ,
could see Guiteau, and said ho was a
preacher. I said, 'Certainly,' and took
him to the cell and said, 'Here, (Juitean, 1
is a colored minister come to see '
you.' Guiteau looked pleased, and the (
preacher was ushered into thetJVecell and
said, 'Mr. (Juiteau, I have 'come to pray,
with you.' lie then kneeled, andlJui-;
tean, without saving a word, knelt by his 1
side. The colored man, for ten minutes,;,
offered up a most pathcthic pravor for
|i;iruun iiuu itiuri-y n>r niti wrtwaini
sin at Ills side. At its conclusion Guiteau'
heartily said 'Amen,' and thanked tl?o| (
"And no white ministers of any de-:
nomination have called ?"
"Not one, and I am the more surprised j
at this because it had been loudly herald- ,
ed i'roni pulpits that when Guiteau was
scntonced the world would see the Christian
ministry flocking to offer him spiritual
"Does Guiteau ever pray ?"
"Yes, at least he says I asked him
the other day if he prayed, and he said :
'Yes. every iriglit.' But I don't hero you,
Guiteau. *1 don't pray aloud, he responded."
"How is his health?" .
"Well, he is a pood deal better than he '
has been. lie will weigh now about 141
pounds. IIis moustache has grown out
since lie was shaved for the plaster fist
and he looks decidedly bettor."
"Is ho allowed any but prison fare."
No, nor never has had any other during
his confinement in jail. A great'
many stories have been published about
hi1? sumptuous fare, but they are all false,
and he has never had onfy the prison
"Will Guiteau die game?"
"I think he will. I do not think there
is any sentimental clap trap about him,
and my own impressions from daily observation,
are that he knows he has got
to hang. While hcstill clings to tho hope j
of Executive clemency when talking of
it, deep down in his heart I am satisfied
he.feels that there is no hope."
I "Does he ever speak of his deed in tones
| "Never. I have never heard him utter
: a syllable of remorse or repentence for
! the* deed in the many conversations II
| ha\'4 had with him."
"Have you made any arrangements for
I the execution ?" ;
"iNo, nut yet. more win ne uiuuie usual
number allowed by the law, which in
ithe District limits them f<> what is called

of course, among that jury will be a limited

Col. Stribling's Experiment With Ensilage
Mr. Editor: In answer to the request
of "Several Farmers," in year last issue,
in regard to my experience with ensilage,
I am glad to say that the ensilage has given
entire satisfaction to rue, and thatl expect
to continue making my forage and
I storing it in very much tho "same way as
|lust year, except that I will sow every
other row in peas at the saiYie time I plant
mv corn fodder, and will cut and mix the
pea vines in with the corn fodder. The
pea vines will enrich the feed, and will
make the corn pack closer in the pit.
, The peas growing on the land also leaves
I roots and otherwise improves tho land.
| The objections to making 'enwlage out of
I pea-vines entirely are, the Vines art; not
only very expensive to handle, but they
are extremely hard to run through the
I cutting machine. By mixing the vines
j and corn together in the machine the corn
i will assist in pulling the vines through
I the cutter.
[ The only patent objection I have noticed
| in tho extensive use :>f ensilaga North is,
: that it conies in wnen they are busy with
j their other crops; but this is no objection
| with Vis, as we can plant our crop of forage
so that it will come in when our other
crops are out of our way. Say we plant
; so as to fill the silo first of September.
1 ? ? -- :l
I ji commenced 10 leeu <ji? mc
120th of November, and fed it continually
and almost exclusively until the 7th of
! April, at which time it gave out, and I am
j sure my stock could have done about as
well without any dry forage as they did
J with the little they got. At first some of
I the stock eat it well-, but some did not un|
til it was mixed with bran or meal. After
a few days of coaxing in this way all
my stock?mules, cows, calvcs,"and
horse?eat it as well as one could wish.
One of the greatest advantages I can see
in the ensilagiVig of crops 1s. that ono is
sure of all tho forage lie grows. There is
no risk in getting sonic of it?perhaps
half?spoiled by rain ; nor is there waste
in feeding, (half of the dry corn stalks are
wasted in feeding.)
In conclusion, it is best to say that the
ensilage process is not one by which
something ran be made from nothing. It
is simply a sure and simple way of preserving
all the forage one can grow. It
does away with tho necessity of any farmor
bu.vinsr forage, as any one who can dig
a hole in the ground can make a silo, and^
anyone who can cut corn fodder, or otjjGr
| green crops, into particles one-half or an
j inch in length, can fill the sU<?. For description

which to fill it, Ac., At1.', I refer to article

Plain and Pointed.
Tho editor of the Greenville News
thinks for himself and never hesitates to
"speak out in meetin," caring nothing,
apparently, as to who is offended. Tins is
his last on the Richland election cases:
"The people of South Carolina have
good right to hate District Attorney Melton.
He would not have been blameable
or justly despised if he had prosecuted
vigorously, for he is a prosecutingofHcer,
and bad a prima facie case. We have a
right to complain however, because he
overstepped the requirements of his duty,
and deliberately sought to secure n jury
that he knew would not render a fair verdict.
He was sworn to see that offenders
were brought to justice. He was
not s"worn to violate justice and the
spiiitofthe law by packing the jury
with men who he was perfectly sure
would convict despite any evidence or
pleading. The fact that the men on trial
were his own neighbors and friends adds
another count to the indictment the people
will draw against him. He has not only
dealt unfairly in the performance of his
duties, but has done so against men he
professed friendsnip for and whoso high
character he knew. Whether ho served
such officious zeal for hire or Irate is equally
bad, and -merits the unqualified coYidemnation
of every fair man.
"V\ e regret that our fellow citizens in
Columbia should have talked of burning
Mr. Melton in efftgy. That is not a manly
or Anglo-Saxon way of dtriug business,
especially when the individual whose
counterfeit it is proposed to incinerate is
present every day, and can bo made to
feel the disgust of his fellows every hour,
without tiie violation 01 imy mw\
"In this connection, we regard the treatment
of Mr. Dallas Sanders as unfortunate
and unwise. lie is a stranger sent
here to a disagreeable duty, auu, as far
as we can see, has done it like a gentleman.
Mr. Haskell's attack on Mm was
unnecessary and ungraceful, and can only
result in harm if it has any result at all.
Abuse of the attorney on the other side is
recognized as the last resort in a desporate
case. As a stranger, a lawyer and a
gentleman, Mr, Sanders was entitled to
consideration and courtesy, and ho was
made the object of a bitter personal attack.
This savors too much of knock
down argument!and methods to be-cither
pleasant or creditable."
Tlic Columbia Canal What it Illustrates.
The Columbia Canal furnishes a1
striking illustration of one of the|
chief causes that operates to prevent i

brought to a successful completion, |
than it receives a staggering blow from |
from the very persons who should be j
its foremost friends. The most exhor-j

to the apparent wUims of Nature, which j

contentment, would have had to keep onej
eye on duty whilst the otjier slept? And
even theoM bull-frog perched upon his little,
tussock, as lie warbled forth his notes of:
praise and thanksgiving, would have had to
liavc kept his eais well open to catch the;
stca'thy footfalls of the Hoy. as (with stone In j
band) he crept softly up behind a neighboring <
log. And who can believe, (if a stone could I
have been found) that old Jack would not have j
been moping about the grounds with but one i
eye ? The pig wl'tli his legs done up in splints i
would have been hobbling around on crutches.1
Willie the Boy would prove an expert In all
of the above particulars, it wou'd be In the
character of a Ratnsy Sniffle (see Georgia
Scenes) that he would appear most at home.
For him to originate a difllculty between the
patriarchs of the herd or of the flock would
attbrd genuine p-leasure; and from some place
of safety to witness thetn test the hardness of
their hedds would furnish hi in intlnitedelight.
But the crowning argument, and the last I
shall offer, that
THE HOY WAS THE LAST OF ALL THINGS
is that the apple was left to ripen
before it was pulled. Had t:ierc been a
boy present, that apple would have dlsappersd
before it lalrly turned. Of course, the Boy
would have ass-erted his own lntrtfcency, and
saddled noti on me monkey. wno is second
only to tbo Boy in his pranks. So wo may
safely conclude that the Boy was not In the
garden. Hui after every tiling else had been
made and the entire machinery put into full
operation, then the hoy made his appearance.
From tlrnt timetintil N'mih entered the Ark
we have the most uhmitjiakirbte evidences of
his presence. That
HE WAS NOT ADMITTED INTO THE ARK,
wo feel assured ; fur while the Ark was
amply sufficient to hold all of the beasts both
clean and unclean ; yet if the Boy had been
crowded in, loriy-eijiht hours would not have
passed before each a silr would have hecn
created among the animals, that while the
Boy clinging in salety to a raltcrubqye,enjoying
the uenera! confusion below, old Noah
would have been seriously considering
whether 1t would bo better for him t>> he
drowned outside or devoured alive inside.
Then what became of the Hoy ? lie wi.s evidently
not drowned nor devoured by the
beasts in the ark ; for as noon as the dry land
appeals, the Boy appears also. It would be
hard to makea railroad conductor of the present
day believe that if Noah had searched
I the nooks and coriurs outside the ark. he
would not have discovered the Boy llxed up
for a free ride. From the Hood through all of
the succeeding generations, up to the present
time, the Boy has given the fullest evidence
of his presence. \V e have now concluded the
! history of the boy's origin.
In treating ul his habits and peculiarities,
THE SUDJECT NATUIIALLY DIVIDES ITSELF
INTO TIIKEE DISTINCT l'EHIODS
which we will consider separately. The
first period is the time which elapses
between the aces of twelve and six
teen year*; ihe second, between sixteen and
eighteen ; and (he third period Is from eighteen
until he developed .Into u man, which
ordinarily tnlfcs place Between* the ages of
twenty-one aird twenty-live, depending entirely
upon the amount of common sense
which he has at his command. We wllj-jfifte i
the average boy as we ton re in collect with!
him In our every day Intercourse, leaving
enough of margin on the on<rfiand for thovc
whoare better, and on th^uUfer for th se who
arc worse. ,?
Ths first tiling ;/e notice as characteristic
of the RoyjcTHE
IJS-'Els hat. which though not an old
one has tlie gri ater i art of tho crow'n
torn out and with oulv a few detached
pieces of the l?rlm left. This dilapidated
(state of tilings was brought about by
a recent effort on the part of the Coy to teach
his friend Fido to fetch and carry. He only
taught him to carry, however. Rut If there is
any mi'e thing more characteristic or him in
this stage of his existent* than another, It Is
his pants and the manner in which he
wears them. Kach le:: is rolled up just high
enough not to hide the Iiitkc patches of new
cloth of dlflerentcolors which adorn theknets.
And as his pants ate entirely destitute of buttons,
they are held together at tfce top by a
skewer manufactured out of a slx-penwv
nail, to which Is also attached the front end
of one suspender. The othersuspender serves
to hold the tongue of his wagon in its pace.
Now let him face about a liltleaml you M ill
see that the other end of the former suspender
Is fastened to another skewer similar to
the one mentioned above. We will also find .
two more patches, if any thine, larger than1
those In front. But without stopping to locate
them, we will pass to the contents of his
pockets, which as curiosities are only second
to the Boy himself. Upon examination, the
first thing discovered Is a whirligig made of
the bottom of an okl blacking box. Then
coines his sllnger made of a piece of leather
with strings attached to each e'nd ; after that
a ham e-M ring which his father has been inquiring
about for the last three days. This
latter constitutes his whip thong, though lie
never uses it about the house for reasons best
known to himself. Then come whlp-lashes
and old shoe-strings without number, toward ;
the bottom,an old knife-blade; and last, but;
not least In his estimation, are several nails.
some sharp and others n little flattened at the
end. With these Ire picks out his walnut und
hickory-fiit goodies. In the other pocket are
a set of new trap-triggers, Ills quills for blowing,
and half n dozen old dry ribs from the I
carcass of a dead horse. These last he calls
his bones and prizes them very highly. IT we
will prosecute our examination a little further.
we will be sin e to find the nail Humped
off of a roe of r>ne foot and n stone bruise on
the heel of the othet. There Is nothing
which n boy dislikesmore than washing lilsi
lace In the morning, unless It tie washing his
feet at night. If any one doubts the existence

would be substituted broken Minis,

this stage of the Hoy's existence he makes his

he takes hokl of and approni lutes to himself

made him a vague shadow of himself.
The District Attorney made his plaint. Mr.
Sanders now'avers that he has been "villltied
anil abused." It suits him to say so. In this
latitude it Is not the habit to make a boast of
such things, or to whine about them. We
know that there was a general disposition
here to make much of Mr. Sanders, and It
\vas expected of hlin that he would do his
whole duty. Like the District Attorney he
exceeds his duty. Mr. Panders was not avowedly
sent heietopack Juries, and contrivc the
conviction of innocent Democrats.
Mr. Sanders thinks that It would be better
to treat "this great Government, and Its representatives
with a more ceiierous nnnd, and
"not to iniuse Into the minds of the people of
"South Carolina a hatred of the General Government."
The Government Is respected,
but Mr. Sanders Is not the Government. The
people can despise pettiness and meanness
without haling Ihe Government. Ilcaven
forefend that Mr. Sanders should. In any
scnse.be regarded as anything more than a
small Incident of a great oacaslon.
The white people of South Carolina are neither
treacherous nor deceitful. Appropriations
for the Charleston Jetties and for the
public schools are asked for. because It Is to
the interest of the country at iar^e as well as
of Charleston that the entrance to the harbor
be improved, and the means ol educating the
to petition Congress that we have to that Inir
trial which Mr. Sanders denies to our people.
There is no Inconsistency In exercising the
one right and demanding the other, although
Mr.Sanders Insists that we mustdlslike the
Government, beciu?o we do not like hhn.
It docs not follow. Had Mr. Sanders behaved
In "an orderly, time-honored manner," and
conducted the prosceutlons"ln the customary
"way In which cases have been tried for over
"two hundred years," no word of criticism
would huve been breathed. What causes him
to be ccn.-ured Is th" Inexpugnable fact that,
he violated propriety and tailored the law, In
bis frantic endeavor to earn the thank* of his
Well! well! there are flies on every wheel.

Withdrawal of the Baptist
Chnrc'i from the American Bible
fNw York ,S"un.]
A meeting has been called for next Thrrsday
evening at the Culvary Baptist Church
"to consider the dutv of Bible work without
entangling alliance*." The necessity of the
movement is stated to he the action of the
American Bible Society in refusing co-operation
with Baptists except on humiliatingconditions.
The Uev. It. S. McArlhur, pastor of Calvary
Chuicb, explained yesterday that up to 1*35,
tiie Baptist Church cordially co-npcratcd with
the Bible Society, but niter that time, owinc
to 'he refusal of the society to circulate translations
of Ihe IJlbie Into foreign languages
made by Bsiptlst scholars, the support of that
church was large alienated. The result wiyj
elgu Bible Society,and later on, the American
Bible Union. It wits the laiter so? lely that
led In Ihe movement lor a revision of Ihe
English translation of Ihe .Scrip!ures. The
vcrMon known as the Bible Society, whose
high scholarly character is now added was
the result- About thiee years ago a conference
of eminent Baptist minisieisand laymen
was held at the Fifth Avenue Hotel to
rc-cstnb'dNh cordial rdailons between the
'hureli and Ihe American Blb'e Society. The
understanding then was that ihe policy of Ihe
society would bd more liberal.and that it
would not object to using its funds to supply
Baptist mlssfonarlcs with the translations required
by them which translated the<3reck
work "baptize,' "Immerse."
Recently the society has returned to Its old
policy, and hence the present movement. Its
outcome will probably l>e that the llihie work
of the Baptist Church will be carried on
through the Baptist Board of Publication at
Philadelphia, and In foreign lands through
the American Missionary Union at Huston.
It. Is more Hum likely that the English version
adopted will he the present revised version,
with the mites of the American revisers
Incorporated In the text. This does not translate
the Greek verb 'baptize'' ''immerse," but
"baptize In water."

This gentleman, the Greenback speaker,

pleased with him. In fact we became extremely
