BACHMAN CHAPEL LETTER.
A Visit To Newberry and The Lutheran
Matters Of Interest.
Slighs, December 17.-Last Sun
day morning it was my privilege,
in company with Mr. L I. Epting,
to visit the home of our friend, Dr.
0. B. Mayer, of Newberry, and
thence to worship with the Luther
ans of the Church of the Redeemer.
The Rev. W. L. Seabrook, the pas
tor of the congregation,preached one
of his usual good sermons. Rev.
Mr. Seabrook is one of our ablest
theologians. He never lacks for
words and we have a right to be
lieve that he is devoted to and ab
solutely eoncentrating his energies
upon the performance of the work
he has in hand. This is the first
time I have worshipped with his
congregation since the erection of
their new church. When I last
worshipped with them their old
church stood beyond Col. E. H.
Aull's residence. It was a very or
dinary building. The contrast be
tween the old building and the new
is great. To speak in brief, I am
willing to say that I have found the
model church. The interior is sim
ply magnificent. A prettier aInd bet
ter arranged church throughout it
would be hard to find.
On the right of the pulpit stands
the large pipe organ,-standing not
only as an ornament, for it fills the
whole church with such melodies
as captivate the hearts of all within
its walls. Miss Susie Summer,
the accomplished daughter of Mr.
C. I. Summer, is the organist. She
is a master of the instrument and
it is a treat for a lover of nu-;ic to
go to the Church of the Redeemer.
This congregation has just finish
ed building a beautiful parsonage,
which stands about fifty yards east
of the church. This makes the
church equipment complete at a
cost of a little more thai twenty
thousand dollars. Where is there
another congregation within the
bounds of the South Carolina Luth
eran Synod that his manifested
such an interest in church work and
that has made such improvements
as this congregation has made in
the past ten years? This church
stands as a monument to Luther
anism in Newherry county. I was
pleased to meet many of my friends
who came to me in the church an-1
gave me the hand of friendship and
showed me that they were glad to
have me with them. This, together
with the good sermon, made me
feel that it was good to be there.
After service I returned with Mr.
Epting to the home of D)r. Mayer
and there spent a few more p)leasant
hours. I love to visit homes where
there is such hospitality as there is
at P . Mayer's. It is a home of
sm Thine, where happiness, peace,
lov e and devotion are found. Dr.
Mayer is not only a man with a
broach mind, but he is a man with a
big heart. Newberry has a right
to feel proud of such a man.
Mrs. H-. R. Epps has returned
from a nmonth's visit to her dlaugh
'.er, Mrs. S. A. Rikard.
It is with regret that it is an
ouncedi that Mr. J. W. Richardson
id Mrs. Caroline Cook are ill.
A wave of matrimony struck the

CONSTABLE PERRY'S PART.
Much Of The Credit For The Caoture Of
The Big Babb Distillery Due to
The following account of the part
taken by Constable T. B. Perry, of
Newberry, in the capture of the big
John Q. Babb distillery in Green
ville county, with 2,600 gallons of
liquor, is taken from the report in
the Greenville Mountaineer of the
prelimnary, as a result of which
Babb was sent up to the higher
It was a plain and simple piece of
detective work, the credit of which
is due to J. E. Lightfoot, of Orange
burg, and T. B. Perry, of New% ber
ry, of the dispensary force, who
were sent here for the purpose of
gaining the necessary information
as to the illegal sale of liquor at a
government distillery, which is not
an easy thing to accomplish when
the storekeeper and gauger is con
nivimg at the illicit traffic, as was the
case in this instance.
Mr. Lightfoot is employed as a
detective and Mr. Perry is one of
the constabulary force. They came
here to remain during carnival week
and were ordered to report to Chief
Hall, from whom they received in
structions and went to work in get
ting at the true inwardness of oper
ations at thelBa b)l distillerv. Thanks
giving day was chosen as the time
for introducing themselves upon the
scene of action, and under th le guise
of being connected with the carnival,
assuming the names of Jones and
Horton, they found easy access to
the confidence of Babb, who sold
them two quarts of whikey for a
dollar, and threw in the drinks be
sides. Goldsmith, the colored store
keeper and gauger, was present
when they offered to buy liquor,
and Babb said there was no need of
concealment so far as Goldsmith
was concerned, as it was all right
with him. On Friday, Nov. 27th,
the officers went back and bought
liquor in the (lay time at the distil
lery and at night at the Babb resi
deice, where lie price was still 5o
cents per quart.
These purchases opened the way
for the raid of Chief Hall and his
associates on November 30th.
A Card of Thanks.
Editor Herald and News: Please
allow me the privilege of returning
mly sincere thanks to my many
friends who were kind to me during
the last illness of my wife. I know
of no words which can express to
them the gratitude of my heart for
their untiring kindness. While my
heart is filled with grief and sorrow,
yet I bow in humble submission to
the will of H-im who d1Ot11 all
things well. May God bless each
and every one of you for every deedl
of kindness thai you showed us, is
the sincere prayer of,
M. L. Kinard.
