Mrs. Gist Gee Visits Manning.
Always on the "qui vive" to increase
interest and zeal for the Master's cause,
our beloved president, Mrs. G. P. Wat
son, had quite a treat for us last Fri
day afternoon at the meeting of our
After the usual devotional exercises
and musical program, Mrs. Joe Sprott,
in a very singular manner, relatea the
"romance of little Claibel," which we
at once recognized as that of our own
Mrs Gist Gee, of West Soochow,
China. Mrs. Gee then came forward
and made a most, interesting talk.
It is always a pleasure to come in
contact with Christain workers direct
from the foreign field, but it is doubly
so when one whom we all know and
love comes among us and gives these
touching heart to heart talks. It brings
the foreign world in so much closer
touch with us and makes us feel as if
it were really our neighbor indeed.
In her own sweet and quiet way,
Mrs. Gee told us some of her every day
experiences. She also gave us a clearer
view of the temptations and snares
with which the now free women of
China is having to contend. The re
sponsibility of leading them in paths <
righteousness and pointing them to a
power who is able to help them, rests
with our women missionaries, and in
cidentally on the Christian women of
the home land. She pleads with the
hristians to uphold our workers with
or means and prayers, thus obeying
the last great command.
We all thoroughly enjoyed having
irs. Gee with us and feel sure that her
essage will remain with us long after
he has again recrossed the pacific to

Wmie Bethane Mast !'ay Death Penalty.
"In the case of the State vs Willie
Bethune I have decided not to inter
fere with the sentence of the Court,"
said Governor .Manning Saturday
morning. Bethune was under sentence
f electrocution Saturday and the Goy.
fixed two weeks from that day, October
6. as the date for his electroct~tion.
The Governor has given much time
ad attention to the case and gone in
to every phase of it. Attorneys for
the condemned were before the Gover
nor Saturday morning at 8 o'clock.
The Governor, after earnest* and care
ful consideration of every detail,
reached the conclusion that he could
ot interfere with the sentence of the
of the Court and fixed October 16 as
the date for the electrocution..
This brings to an end a case which
has dragged its way through every
ourt, even to the Supreme Court of
the United States. The negro has
bees before the State Courts on more
than one occasion, and every court pro
edure has been exhausted in appeals
on his behaif. The board of pardons
and the Gevernor have now passed on
the case, and in two weeks Bethune
will expiate with his lifelfor the mur
der of which he stands convicted.
Bethune was convicted of the killing
of G. Ben Mims, a white man of Clar
endon County, at the summer term of
Court in 1909 and sentenced to be hang
ed. An appeal to the Supreme Court
conrmed this sentence. He was sub
sequently tried to determine his sanity
a jury pronouncing him sane. Tbis
verdict wias also affirmed by the Su
prene Court of the State. He was sen
tenced to be hanged two or three times
and then to electrocution when this
method oi punishment was substituted.
An appeal to the -United States Su
preme Court on the alleged ground
that the law of electrocution was an ex
post facto law resulted in that high
tribunal upholding the dath sentence
and he was again sentenced to electro

years of age.
The Mmang District Sunday School Conyen
tion a Success.
The Sunday School Convention of
the A. M. E. church Manninig District
was held in Friendship A. Mi. E. church
Silver, S. C., September 23-26. It was
a comple success. In spite of the cry
of hard time the convention raised
more than three hundred dollars for
Christian education. One among the
most noble deeds of the convention
was. it gave a scholarship to a poor
worthy girl. She was over anxious to
go to school but had not the means,
many applicants applied for the schol
arship, but Rev. F. D. Timmons, the
-pastor of tbe young lady, Stella Billops
convinced the convention of tbe worthy
iess of his applicant, thus she was
awarded the scholarship. Many in
spiring sermons were preached by the
ministers or the convention. Some
tvery splendid papers were read.
Among them was a paper on temper
Sance. The ministers spoke in the
highest terms of the victory achieved
by the prohibitionist for bringing
about Ttate-wide prohibition in South
Carolina. They pledged to stand by
those in authority in enforcing the law
against the unlawful sale of alcoholic
