Want Dr. Gwaltney Back.
After due deliberation the mem
bers of the Baptist church, in con
ference assembled, on Sunday
morning last without a dissenting
vote instructed the clerk of the
church to communicate with Dr.
L. R. Gwaltney and ascertain
whether or not he will entertain a
call to return to Edgefield after
his contract with Shorter college
shall have been complied with.
It is quite certain that the mem
bers of the Baptist church will
bring Dr. Gwaltney back to Edge
field if he can be induced to come.
He dearly loves the people of this
entire community and we hope
and believe that the relationship
so reluctantly severed will be restor
ed. Should God,in his providence,
open the way for h is return there
will be general rejoicing in Edge
A Small Fire.
No one expected the fire engine
to be called into active service so
soon after being installed. About
9 o'clock on Friday night last a
fire alarm was echoed and re-echo
ed along our streets. The home of
Eldred Green, near the trestle, was
found to be on fire. As soon ad the
alarm broke the stillness of the
uight nearly a dozen strong and
brave men made a dash for the
chemical engine which was housed
in front of Grice & Watson's sta
ble. Among the young men being
Joe Eve Mims. Walter Samuels,
Will Covar, Henry Watson, Wal
lace Tompkins, John Faulkner,
Hiram Lowe and others, who in
in the tvtinkling ol an eye were
makino for the scene of the fi:e
by leaps aud bounds drawiug the
"chemical" behind them.
When the fire laddies arrived,
after a run of nearly a mile, the
entire roof of the building was
ablaze, some of it falling in. The
hose was turned on and the flames
were mow- d dowu by the contents
of the engine wherever the fire
could be reached. It was burniug
between the ceiling and roof con
sequently it was fought under a
very great disadvantage.
The fire was almost entirely ex
tinguished but the supply of chem
ical in the engine became exhaus
ted and tho well on the premises
was only a hole in the ground
a well without water-consequent
ly the fire again made rapid head
way in spite of all effoits to"outen"
Two things have been conclu
sively shown by the fire. First,
that the engine will do all tba,t
has been claimed for it. The case
in point was a crucial test and it
did all that could be expected of it
auder the existing circumstances.
Second, the one thing needful now
is a set of trained men to manage
it properly so as to accomplish the
most good possible in the shortest
The council should at once call
for 10 or 12 volunteers whose duty
shall be to take charge of the en
gine and become skilled in its use.i
Let this yoluuteer fire compauyl
feel responsible for charging the!
engine and for its prompt appear-l
ance at a fire. Uulees some indi-1
vidual or setof individuals assumJ
the responsibility it will not bol
done. Delay in arranging these del
tails is dangerous ; a fire, very dis
astrous in its consequences, is lia
ble to break out any time, coming
as a thief in the night.
