Tradition tells us that Major Har
rison was the British officer spoken
of, that he was a brave man and was
also a suitor for the hand of Miss
Mary Witherspoon, hence could not
bear his successful rival. Captain
Conyers, spoken of in words of praise,
and that, as was the fashion in those
good old fighting days between ri
vals, there was an understanding be
tween the British major and the Par
tisan captain of cavalry, that when
they met in battle the rivalry should
end with the life of one of them. That
meeting took place, according to
Sims' History of South Carolina, (pp.
210 and 211) at Taw-caw, where Mar
ion placed an ambush for Col. Wat
son. The first ambush was under the
command of Horry, who had orders
to give the enemy only two shots and
then retire; as ammunition was very
scarce the second was of cavalry
under Captain Conyers. Horry re
treated after delivering two effective
fires, pursued by the British cavalry
under Major Harrison. The latter
encountered Conyers at the head of
the American horse. Here the two
rivals recognizing each other, deter
mined to end their feud by personal
combat. They fought with swords
in the presenice of their troops, and
Conyers slew his gallant rival.
Taw-caw is in Clarendon county,
and the scene of this tragedy was on
Mr. William G. Frierson's plantation.

Trhere has been a number of newspaper
~xpressionis of disapproval of the adminf-I

It is remarkable that those who have
raised a cry against him have not found
texpedient to specify his errors or mis
Specific complaint has been manitestly
voided which is certainly significant.
That he has made mistakes is but natural,
but that his opposers have not been wi'~
ig to call attention to any wrong tact or
2istake upon which to ground their comu
plaint, is rather suggestive of the fact that
thev are conscious of the unreasonableness
and weaknuess of their position.
The source and cbaracter of tihe expres
sions of disapproval are rather suggestive
that his methods have not pleased a num

nluence would be contributed towards
the srying out of partisan plans and in

as their superintendent before, some

School., others from the Sammy
Swamp Sunday School Brother
Briggs has done a noble work among
the children in the past; and we are
all so rejoiced to have him among us
again. He promised us. that lie
would ask his Pastor, Rev. Connors,
of Summerton, to preach the first
sermon in our new church: and we
hope that it will be in the near fu
ture, for we certainly, will esteem it
as quite a privilege to have Brother
Connors visit us. Speaking of Brot
her Briggs' work among the children,
recalls an incident that happened a
few years ago. The children of a
school were requested to meet one
afternoon, to be organized into a
childrens' society; the pastor of the
church was alsoaskedto be present,
and assist in the organization. when
the day arrived many bright little
boys and girls were present, anxious
to join, and find out what they could
do for their Saviour. At the last mo
ment, came a message from the pas
tor, saying, it would be impossible
for him to be present.
What was to be done' It looked
as if the meeting would be a failure,
and some of the children had come
several miles to join: when some one
whispered. ".Send for Mr. Briggs.
That whisper was like an inspiration,
for all there knew, that lie had never
failed the children yet. He came,
organized them into a society known
as rhe Orphans Friends," and the
children did good work for Connie
Maxwell Orphanage; and in many
houses to day you will find pictures I
of the Orphanage, sent to these child-!
ren by Brother Vass although the
work was done exclusively by the
children, Brother Briggs never missed
a single meeting.
After the election of the Superin
tendent, the school was then organ
ized and 46 menbers enrolled, We
had another meeting last Sunday 10
new menbers joined, making a total
menbership of 56.
A beautiful tribute was paid to the
memory of Brother John Umphries
who was the superintendent there
years ago. We were glad to have his
daughter Mrs. McLeod, with us at
our tirst meeting; we also have grand
children, and great grandchildren of
Brother Umphries enrolled as mem
bers. The hour of meeting has been
changed from four, to five o'clock.
We hope soon to organize the church,
anti call a pastor. Our doors are op
en, all are invited to come, they will
receive a cordial welcome. We also
ask for the prayers of christian peo
p~le, that we may have a blessing and
thereby enabled to do a good work
for our Master's kingdom. Remem
