Easter Egg Hunt.
-The large garden and lawn of Mrs.
Kate Butler was transformed into a
veritable Fairyland Monday after
noon, the occasion being the annual
Easter egg hunt arranged by the
Guild" of the Episcopal church. Near
ly one hundred children gathered
early in the afternoon, after impa
tiently waiting for the hour to arrive.
^Having attended previous egg hunts
given by the Guild, they knew what
pleasure was in store for them. More
than 300 eggs had been hidden about
the lawn and among this vast num
ber was a golden egg, the finder of
which would receive prize. Not only '
did the youngsters vie with each oth- :
*r as to which should find the great- '
?st number of eggs but each one was 1
doubly eager to locate the golden
egg. After much searching, William
Byrd, Jr., found the golden egg and
received the prize, a beautiful box of 1
candy. While the climax was now '
reached in the search for the eggs, 1
yet there was much fun in store for '
the rollicksome boys and girls as they '
engaged in various games and out- '
door sports. The occasion will be a
source of pleasant memories to all
who were present. The gate receipts
and the proceeds of the sale of ice
cream amounted to $18.10, $15.00 <
of which will be donated to the Ar- i
menian sufferers. ]

Rawl Granted Bail.
Chief Justice Gary yesterday
granted bail to L. K. Rawl, white
man charged with robbing stores at
Trenton and being connected with
robberies in Fairfield county. The
chief justice fixed at $5,000 as the
amount after a habeas corpus before
him in the afternoon.
In fixing bail for Rawl, who was
brought to the court room under
heavy guard, Chief Justice Gary
made it plain that crime in South
Carolina must be stopped, and that
one way to stop it was to keep crimi
nals in jail. He told attorneys for
Rawl that if the man before him was
not a South Carolinian he would have
fixed the bond at 810,000. Chief Jus
tice Gary sf.id the laws are too sacred
to be trampled upon and at this time
outsiders are invading the state to
break its laws.
In case Rawl is able to take ad
vantage of the bail it was indicated
yesterday that several additional war
rants; are awaiting him, including one
If Rawl furnishes bond in the sum
of $5,000 and is released he will be
at once arrested under other charges
and remanded to prison. Sheriff
Swearingen had forwarded just a few
days ago three additional warrants
for Rawl to Solicitor Cellison. It will
not be an easy matter for him to fur
nish he?vy bond in all of the cases
on record against him. If it were pos
sible under the law to hold him, he
should not be granted bail at all.
Such a villain and desperate charac
ter as he is alleged to be deserves a
permanent place behind prison bars.

Sunday School Notes.
One good thing about the modern
Sunday school is that it takes in
every age and class of people, from
the cradle roll to the old and sedate.
One of the most interesting class
es at the Edgefield Baptist Sunday
school is No. 2., composed of elderly
married women and widows, a class
of noble women ' who have passed
through the varied experiences of
life, dark and dreary days as well as
bright and sunny hours, when every
minute was jewelled with a joy.
To them all the Bible is the great
source of comfort. No place nor time
is so fitted for learning the Bible as
when assembled in the Sunday school
Another great time is in the House
of Worship, surrounded by the peace
ful influences of prayer and lulled
in a soothing composure by the peal
ing anthems of the melodious organ,

May, and the exquisitely mellifluous
mellody as rendered by MT. George
F. Mims and his beautiful and gifted
daughter, Miss Lois Mims and Mr.'

One Negro Dead, Another
Sunday afternoon about five
o'clock two negroes, Will Weaver
and George Barnes, became involved
in a difficulty at an Easter celebra
tion at a school house two miles
south of Edgefield. Weaver shot
Barnes and thinking the wound would
prove fatal fled through the woods
and was pursued by about half a doz
en of Barnes' friends. They overtook
him about half a mile away. Two pis
tol shots were heard and later the
dead body of Weaver was found in
the woods. Sheriff Swearingen began
at once to work on the case. An in
quest was held Monday by Judge J.
B. Tompkins and the verdict was to
the effect that Will Weaver died of a
wound inflicted by Abrahm Holmes,
Hamp McKie, Ernest Barnes, Claude
Jennings, Warren Barnes, Bryan
