The Herald and -News last Tuesday
-published a notice of the death of Dr.
S. S. Rahn, who died at Jacksonville,
Fla. Dr. Rahn was for several years
professor in Newberry college and has
nany friends in Newberry.
The following sketch of his life is
taken from the Jacksonville, Florida,
"Members of the St. John's Luther
a congregation were shocked and
grieved yesterday when they received
,he news that their pastor, S. S. Rahn,
passed into the great beyond. He
been in fairly good health until
day morning when he became ill;
rs were called and were with
throughout the day trying to re
e him of acute indigestion, but all
in vain; at 8:15 o'clock Saturday
ening he passed away. His surviv
g children, Mr. Joseph A. Rahn, of
olumbia, S. C., and Miss Alice Rahn,
of this city, have the sympathy of the
ongregation and the entire commu
"Rev. S. S. Rahn was born near Eb
-enezer, Effingham county, Georgia,
February 14,' 1845, a descendant of the
,old Salzburger families who settled on
the Savannah river about five genera
tions ago. Until the War Between the
States broke out he .lived with his par
*ents on a farm, but upon the decalara
ction of hositilities, enlisted as a pri
Tate in Company I, Fifth Georgia cav
alry, serving with honor until the end
of the war. He was a member in good
standing of R. E. Lee camp, No. 58,
Florida division, United Confederate
-veterans, and a member of the Royal
.Arcanum, Rahn council, No. 1218,
'Wytheville, Va. . .,
'After the war he entered Newber
ry college and graduated and then en
tered the Lutheran seminary and was
ordained into the ministry in Novem-!
ber, 1874. He has served his church
-and God continually, preaching the
'Gospel and teaching in schools and
-colleges. He was professor in New
'berry college and the North Carolina
-college for a numbe~r of years. These
colleges conferred upon him the de
grees of Ph. D and D. D.
"Dr. Rahn served as miissionary at
many stations and was pastor of many
-Lutheran churches in the Southern
'States. His life work was one of
Christian charity, aiding the poor fin-i
ancially and spiritually, consoling the
'bereaved ones. and lifting up souls to
the Giver of all. He was married
three times, his last wife, after a long
illness, died here six years ago. He
-was cal-led to the St. John's Lutheran
congregation of this city in February,
1897, as pastor and has served them
with great satisfaction. Among his
- many adversities in~ recent years was
the great conflagration of 1901, when
h e practically lost all of his worldly
goods, but he met it all like a Chris
-.?fUndefnils ministry tnle congrega
(tion rebuilt a splendid church and
parsonage and grew from a small flock
to a large representative body. From
this congregation the beraved ones
have full Christian sympathy and love,
*"The body will lie in state in the
auditorium of the church on Monday
from 12 to 5 o'clock, at which liour
funeral services will be held, Rev. J.
W. Graybill, of the First Presbyterian
"Moulton & Kyle have prepared the
body to be shipped to Columbia, S. C.,
to be interred by the side of his wife.
The pall-bearers will be meinbers Of!
the church council."
Governor Praises Methods Employed
at Florence to Reform Wayward
Youths of State.
Columbia, July 6.-Governor Blease
said today that 'his visit this week to
the State reformatory, at Florence,
the estabiishment of which he as State
senator opposed, had quite converted
him to the reformatory idea as there
exemplifiedi, and it would be his pleas
ure to recommend liberal support of
that institution by the general assem
bly. "The place is clean, sanitary and
-pleasant," said the governor; "there is
no fiubdub about its administration,
and I was struck with the home-like
atmosphere prevailing. I believe Su
perintenent Emmons and his family
are devoted to theid young charges,
(with whom he appears to have just
the relation he ought to have."
Governor Blease said he opposed the
measure proposing to create the refor
matory because it originally provided
for the care of white and colored boys
in the same institution. For that rea
son he held up the project for two ses
sions, until the measure was amended
so as to provide for white boys only.
Would Introduce Other Trades.
"At presnt facilities are at hand for
the teaching of no trade other than
farming," said the governor. "I shall
favor the making of proper provision
or the instruction of the boys in one
or two good, plain trades, such as car
pentry, painting, shoemaking and the
like. I hope to see the reformatory
built up. It is a valuable asset."
There is one thing about the refor
matory that is puzzling the governor
somewhat. He is constantly in receipt
of petitions that he release boys regu
larly committed to the institution. The
law appears to make no provision for
release of an inmate except upon the:
order of the board of directors or on.
a writ of habeas corpus from the Chief
Justice or one of the circuit judges.
The governor is of the opinion that
this law is defective, but his advice to
petitioners is that they employ coun-.
sel to presnt their cases.
Should Appeal to Directors.
Where boys have been voluntarily
committed by parents or guardians,
appeal should be made to the directors
of the reformatory. The governor
can not well consider petitions for the
release of any inmates except such as
have been committed by a court upon
conviction of crime.
Another matter in reference to the
reformatory which governor has un
der consideration is the composition of
the board of directors. He does not
intimate that he has any desire or in
tention to make any changes, but he
wishes to ascertain just who are the
directors. The records at the State
house are not at all clear on this point.
Governor Blease has asked Mr. W. R.
Barringer, 6f Florence, whom he un
derstands to be secretary- treasurer of
the board, to furnish him with a list
of the directors.
MEETING AT ZOAR SCHOOL.
Saluda District Proud of Sacrifices
Made for Good School-Ad
Saluda, July 6.-All business was
suspended here on the Fourth, for the
holiday and the exodus almost depop
ulated the town. A large number went
over to Summerland to the Batesburg
Leesville annual gathering, while a
still larger number attended the Zoar!
barbecue, now for some years an event
looked forward to with pleasure.
The gathering at the last named
place was a large one, and the patrons
of the Zoar High school had planned
to use it as an educational rally day.
An introductory talk was made by'
the Rev. J. A. Carson, county superin
tendent of education. He was follow
ed by B. W. Crouch, who discussed in
a very plain and pointed way some of
the practical problems just now con
fronting those interested in maintain-I
ing the local school, and especially of
keeping it up to the high standard- of
excellence of the past few years.
The treat of the day, pe-haps, was
the eoquent and inspiring address of
Prof. Clinkscales, of Wofford college.
The speaker was at his best, and his
talk was characteristic of the nman
simple, earnest ,eloquent and enlioen
ed with a sense of humor throughout
An excellent barbecue and picnic
dinner was served on the grounds. The
Zoar school is the pride of the peopleI
of that community. The building is
one of the nrost e'mple and best fitted
up schools in the county. At consider
'able sacrifice have some of the patrons!
made the school what it is. Tuesday's
work will, perhaps, tide them over
what appeared to be a cr-isis, and the
good work of the last ten years, in
stead of being thindered, will likely go!
forward with increased impetus.
