how grateful they were to the
Southern Baptists for their sup

I wiLl now leave Baltimore just
b2fore the close of the convention,
' and spend some time in Washing
ton, our Capitol City. It is one ol
the prettiest cities in the United
States and which I think should b<
as it is oar captiol, and named in
honor of our first president.
While there we chanced to see
the street parade of Indians of the
"Wild West Show." I suppose al:
of you have learned something of
Indians, and many - wonder if all it
true that is written about them
They had bows, arrows, rifles,differ
ent kinds of instruments, beads, and
last the old-time carriage with sev
eral Indian women, their face*
painted and their heads adorned
We went through the Capitol in
o the Congress and Senate chamber,
both being in session. We 6aw our
vice president, Mr. Sherman.
After leaving here we went to
Mount Vernon, the home of Gen.
Washington, on the Potomac. Here
everything is supposed to be kept
just as it was during Gen- Washing
ton's life. His carriage which is a
very old vehicle is where Washing
ton left it. His tomb is of marble
on the spot which he selected.
One would enjoy spending a long
while at this nice place, going
through the dwelling house and
flower garden along the shaded
walks near the river, and also go
. As space is getting small and
perhaps the readers tired, I will
turn your thoughts again to Wash
We went first, to the Congres
sional Library, the finest in the
world, so again we should feel
proud of Washington.
Going through the City Park
and flower house you see a great
variety of flowers, plants, shrubs
and many kinds of fruits. Next to
the Bureau of Fisheries, almost
every kind of fish and shell are to
be seen here, a little farther on we
came to the Museum and Library.
Books, birds, animals, a;uns, can
nons and thc cannon balls are" found
Now comes the best place, if not
the prettiest, the Washington
monument, which is 550 feet high
going up within 50 feet of the top
either in an elevator or the stair
case. From here you get the pretti-v
est view of the city. Yon can se

I will mention some of the Gov
ernment. Buildings, which I c]id
not go through, as it : was after
closing hours: The United States
treasury, where all paper money is
made; the White House, the home
of our President; the Navy Build
ing, tlie Corcoran Art Gallery and
last ii not least the Post Office and
Smithsonian" Institute. So, you see
we had to turn our eyes to see some
thing else; whick was a large party
of Chinese, the real Chinese from
Just before leaving Washington
I will take the time to admire the
fine Union station, supposed to be
the finest in America, built of mar
ble and is beautifully lit up.
Leaving our Capital with all its
fine buildings, its shady groves, its
crystal fountains, I will describe
a part of the states we pass through
on our journey home.
The first place of importance is
Mana8sas, where the first and sec
ond battles of Manassas were fought,
also the Manassas Industrial School
is erected here. It is a city of three
or four thousand inhabitants. Next
we pass the battle grounds and
cemetery where the battle of Cul
pepper was fought. Here as at all
other Government property is the
United States flag.
The more we travel the more we
see, so we are now in sight of the
Blue Ridge mountains, and blue
they are, just as they are described
by their name.
I arrived at home the 19tb, very
glad to be in South Carolina again.

one and all a happy vacation, and
I am sure you will have it if you

Wells In India.
The questiou of wells in India is
complicated by the coexistence In each
community of two castes-the purer
Hindoos and Gonds ou the one hand,
the weavers on the other. No weaver
maj draw from the well uf the Hin
doos lest it be detiled, nor will the
Hindoo drink from the bands Or the
well of a weaver. Thus it becomes nec
essary either to dig two wells or to
depute a eartaiu number of the Hindoo
element to give water to their less ex
alted fellow villagers.
