Letter from Mississippi Asking Aboul

C( the following letter which is eli
Dear Sir:-In conjunction withl
the historian of the archives of the
states of Mississippi an(d Alabama.
I am trying to write up the life of
of Judge Obediah Jones, who in
early manhood was in South Car
olina, and we have traced him to
Newherry county. The captain in
Marshall's brigade in 1863 say
they camped in a woodslot tw
miles from Yewberry court liousc
and at a spring in this woodsl' .
looked up and saw\ on a sugar tree
the name. Obediah Jones. with the
d .nate t whiCh he has forgonu.t
andl he was surprised and gave an
exclamation. An old man stanl
ing there observed it ana sa!(i.
"what do you know of him ?"' and
from th4t conversation many cour
tesies were shown the company.
The owner of this lot was Tohn
Hare, an old man. We wish to lo
cate the son and daughter of this
John Hare. The daughter was mar
ried, the son lost one limb in the
army of Virginia. Ve wish to get
the address of any of their descend
ants or the address of anybody in
Newberry county. who might have
heard or known anything of this
Obediah Jones. He was a lawyer
and in partnership with Judge
Knight in the years between 1795
and i8oo; he moved to Oglethorpe
county, Georgia: he held many
prominent positions and was wor
thy the government preserving his
picture in the library of congress.
Anv little research about that pe
riod may disclose something of in
Is there a record of a man in that
county by the name of Judge
I would like the address of some
of his descendants. I hope on ac

The Place of Bibical Criticism.
Biblical criticism. which is now
the bogy to so many; when properly
defined, is simply a thorough study
of the Bible, unbiased investiga
tion into its facts. That study will.
and should, go on without fear or
favor. Only very timid or very ig
norant souls will get frightened
about it, and imagine that dire dis
aster impendls because there has to
be an alteration in some purely hu
man dogmas to which they have be
come accustomed. They wvill yet
see, we trust, that the gains from
the movement are going to be very
far greater than the losses: that we
are to have as the result a very
much stronger and better book than
before; more human and hence
more divine, more natural and
hence more supernatural. A return
on the part of the great body of ed
ucated men who have lpassedl
through our higher institutions of
learning to the 0old methods andl
way of looking at the Bible is abso
lutely imfpossile. One might as
well ask themr to go back to Ptol
emaic system of astronomy. They
are extremelv unwise who attemp t
to force out of the church this body
of educated young men. This at
tempt must be resisted. There is
room in the church for both parties
if they will but consent to live and
let live. think and.let think. Why
not? Let neither try to oust the
other. Christ. we believe. wvill de
fend the one attacked, as in the case
of Mary and Martha.

ing operated by B. F. Neely and
Morgan. We can be found at
Charley Cannon's old stand, near
