At tihe residence df Mr. 3. A. Berry

o'clock 'by Rev. S. H. Zimmerman,
Miss Louise Berr-y was united in 'holy
wedlock to Mr. Jacob Wessinger of
In The River.
Last Sunday tehe editor of the Stand
ard had a very thrilling 'experience in
h cool waters of Saluda river. Af
ter a few hours of business on Satur
day at 'Newberry I 'went to Prosperity
and spent the night very pleasantly
art the home of Mr. R. M. Jay. I start
ed home, 'having wi.th me a few pack
ages gotten at Newberry on Saturday.
In going into the flat at Kemp
son's ferry we did not notice that the
ferryman Ihad fa-iled to chain it, and
when 'he said "Come on" and took
'hold of the mule's bridle to help her
get in the flat I tried to comply. When
the mule got her fore feet on the flat~
the boat left the bank and before 1
knew it the mule and buggy 'were in
the turbid waters of .the Salu-da; and
by the ferryman's help I had jumped
from the buggy to the flat.
To make a long story shor.t, I 'had
to practically undress and jump inito
the river to do what I could to save
the mule and save my floating bun
dles, if poss-ible.
After considerable struggle by your
humble servant and tihe mule both
escaped drowning, but we came out
with a badly injured buggy and har
ness saved; a nice new hat and a
Waterman's Ideal founitain pen lost,
as well as eighteen copies of the New
Testament and iother valualbles-all
consigned to the ever-flowing waters,
and a siege of shivers and wet clothes
and a bareheaded drive home that we
yet feel tihe agues of. All the books
and other matters 'that we saved from
the buggy were injured, and after
such col~d swimming and paddling we
thank 'the Lord for deliverance-the
ferryan swore he couldn't swim a
This is another and a .strong argu

Newberry by building a bridge or se
curing a ferryman who can swim.
