Again on that marvelous face to look."
But they took ray hand and led me in,
And left me alone with my nearest kin?
Once again in that silent place,
My beautiful dead and I, face to face.

The Diamond Fields near Klmberly.
The seme at the bottom of the mine is
remarkable. Scattered over the irregular
surface are, perhaps, 2,000 Kaffirs, well
made men, stark naked, and black as
ebony. These men drill the blasting holes
under the orders of the white miners,
' work out the loosened ground with pick
and shovel, load and tip the tracks, take
up-andielay the tramways as the levels
alter, and do aU the hard work under
white overseers, who are directed by the
claim manager. To a stranger the scene
is weird aud uncanny. The noise of the
pumping engines, the resounding blows of
the heavy hammers on the steel drills, the
jarring noise of the iron trucks and their
tipping, aud the wild appearance and un
earthly shouts of the perspiring Kaffirs,
aU combine to make one cast a longing
glance upward, and hail with inward joy
the sound of the bell above, which pro
claim that,the day's work is done.
The ascending trucks now carry up the
white overseers and officials, while ^he
Kaffirs SAvarm like black ants up preci
pitous paths and hanging ladders, and in
a few minutes the mine is silent, and ap
parently deserted. Then the bell rings
again, g iving the signal to fire the blasts,
and solitary figures, white and black, are
seen ruubing about with tiny sparks, and
them making for the appointed shelter
places. A few minutes more and the
cannonade begins. The explosions shake
the soli I ground on which you stand. The
blue flies into the air or fails in masses.
Huge slices of dangerous "reef." or waU,
come down wiih thundering noise. Then
once more all is still The smoke clears
away, the dost settles, and again the ball
rings, r.nd the "night shift" of miners and
Kaffirs go warming down to their work.

o'clock, and the roar from the four mines

A Stranger Who Took the Cake.
The young people of a certain church
are constantly devising novel plans for
taeir c'aurch socials. A short time ago
they decided to have a tewing contest for
young men, and the competitor whose
workmanship was decided to be the best
was to receive a very nice cake of liberal
dimenidons, which the young ladies had
baked. When the contest took place,
among the dozen competitors was a
strangjr. When the work was examined
the young ladies were greatly chagrined
to learn that the unknown gentleman's
sewing was far superior to that of any of
the others. Of course they were com
pelled, but much against their ?will, to
award him the cake. The next day the
young ladies discovered that the winner
cf the cake was a tailor, and they were
maddest people who were ever connected
with a churcc. The simple mention of the
word ' tailor" now sends them into hyster

THE COLUMBIA SEMINARY.
The Assembly Recommends the Removal
of Dr. Woodrow.
Augusta, Ga., May 20.?The Gen

Church concluded its labors to-night
after nine day's session. The report of
the committee ot the Sabbath strongly
condemned the running of railroads and
the publishing and reading of newspapers
on Sunday; also the sending and receiv
ing of mall. The cpuestion of the Colum
bia Theological Seminary was finally
settled by the following resolution,
which was adopted by a vote of Go to 27:
"Resolved, That whereas the General
Assembly is convinced that Rev. James
Woodrow, D. D., one of the Professors
In the Columbia Theological Seminary,
holds views repugnant to the Word of
God and to our Confession of Faith, as
appears both by his address published
in the Southern Presbyterian Review of
July, 1884, and iu other publications,
and" by his statements made upon the
floor of this Assembly: therefore, this
General Assembly does hereby, in ac
cordance with its action yesterday in
regard to Its oversight of the theological
seminaries, earnestly recommend to the
Synods of South Carolina, GeSrgia,
Alabama and. South Georgia, and Flori
da, which direct and control said semi
nary, to dismiss said Rev. James Wood
row, D. D., as a professor in said semi
nary, and to appoint another in his place
and speedily to take such other steps as
in their judgment will be best adapted
to restore the seminaryXo the confidence
of the church."

been here on a little visit to some of his
friends, who desired him to become per

made a most favorable impression at
the white house when he called with
Senator Hampton, and was given to
understand that an important Federal
appointment would be offered him if he
would consider its acceptance. The
proposed appointment would have been
highly complimentary to Governor
Thompson personally, as well as to the
State of South Carolina, but he said
promptly that he was unwilling to re

THE MAY FLOWER.
What a Clever New England Editor Has
to Say About Her.
The following paragraph is clipped
from The Orangeburg, South Carolina,
Tdies and Democrat, of last week:
An indiscreet correspondent has stir
red up a hornet's nest by asking the
Hartford, Conn., ?Times "what became
of the Mayflower?" The Times in
gloriously dodges the question, and
pretends that it has no reliable infor
mation. But the truth of history must
be vindicated. Tho St. Louis Republi
can makes the point that the mer
chants of the New England-ports out
stripped all others in the slave trade
and almost monopolized the business.
There is good reason to believe that the
Mayflower, after dumping Puritanism
on Plymouth Rock, devoted the re
mainder of its existence to the slave
trade. If it didn't, let some Xew Eng
lander give us the true history ot the
vessel. Was the Puritan Mayflower a
slave ship or not? Will Brother Riggs,
of the Bristol, Conn., Press answer the
Now, Brother Sims, in the first place
the Mayflower didn't belong to the
Puritans, but was charted by them to
bring them across the big ditch and set
them down on Xew England soil, and
they were in no way responsible for
the use to which the littleboat was put
afterwards. It was employed to carry
them supplies and raiment twice, and
then the Puritan element dropped out
of it entirely.
In the second place, Brother Sims,
the Mayflower was English property,
and if ever employed in transporting
"niggers'' from Africa to American
soil it was so employed by its English
In the third place, Brother Sims, the
Mayflower was a slow old tub, requiring
65 days for its first voyage from Eng
land to Cape Cod. You can judge from
that how well adapted it was to run over
from the African coast with a hold full
of perspiring darkies.
? In the fourth place, Brother Sims,
the Mayflower was so weak and un
seaworthy when it brought over its
first Puritan cargo, that those on board,
when half seas over, seriously debated
whether to proceed or return. But
they sagely concluded , that as it was
just as far, one way as the other they
would waste no time in turning around.
In the fifth place, Brother Sims, if by
"slave trade"' is meant that with the
colonies on American soil, it is almost
a certainty that few blacks were land
ed on our shores during the probable
lifetime of the Mayflower, as the very
first were imported only the year be
fore the first band of Pilgrims landed
In the sixth place, Brother Sims, it
isn't of any more consequence whether
the Mayflower was engaged in the
slave trade than it is whether Noah's
ark was so employed. And indeel it is
a well authenticated fact that Xoah's
ark did bring Ham over the high seas,
and he is accredited with being the
smoked original of the whole negro
In the seventh place, Brother Sims,
this question was evidently raised to
cast opprobrium on the Pilgrim fathers,
as if they were so identified with the
Mayflower as to make them, their heirs
and assigns, responsible for the May
flower's after career. Xot much. It

X. L. Buckhalter, who lives io the

and the second growth is now all cheat,

well earned by the untiring devotion of

astonishing prosperity has provoked attacks
which are best repelled by a frank and full
exhibit of its greatly increasing line of
business. Up to Jury 1,1885, this shows a
gain of no less than Sin 214,580 over that;

upon which the association justly prides
itself. Tins reserve now amounts to ?425,

occur in excess of the American Fpperience

and to be apportioned among those who
