11 a. m.-There will 'be the regular
orning service with a sermon by the
pastor on the subject: "Some Limita
tions of Prayer." Some times Chris
tians become perplexed because their
prayers are not answered as prayed.
any become discouraged, and hence
careless in prayer. Some interesting
and timely thoughts on the subject

simple and homely illustration of a
great and important truth. It is very
significant to note that this illustra
tion is used in two of the greatest

Runaway Horse, Sustaining Very
Leesville, May 24.-Yesterday after
noon, about 6 o'clock, a horse belong
ing to two fruit-tree agents from Ten
nessee ran away here. The horse
started running on the eastern edge
of town, and came through Main
street, hitched to a buggy. At H. i
Hendrix's store the horse turned
west, and made directly for a crowd
of children, who were playing in the
street, all unconscious of their dan
ger. Dr. L. A. Riser was sitting in
his buggy in front of the Hendrix ho
tel, out of danger, but seeing the d'an
ger of the children, he jumped in
front of the mad animal, in an at
tempt to turn it- out of its course.
He did this, but es the animal tuDned
the buggy went over and knocked the
young man down. He caught under
the buggy and was dragged several
yards. Finally the horse frroke loose
from the buggy, and - Dr. Riser was
able to get out with one kniee skinned,
his head bruised and his left arm
broken just above the wrist. There
was not another doctor in town at the
time-, but Drs. Gibson and Timmier
man came from Batesburg and set, the
fracture. The. patient is doing. well.,
No braver thing than Dr. Riser's
action has ever 'been seen in Leesville.
There were about ten children. all
small. on the grass in the par.k, and
the horse was running directly for
them. Dr. Riser was in no danger
where he was.. but ,he saw that some
of the children would be crushed un
less he saved them, and 'he did his
best, absolutely regardless of danger
to himself. Needless to say, the peo
ple whose children were saved by his
action will not soon forget him.
