KNEW GOD J

CHILDLIKE FAITH? OF MOTH
ER OF ?>MILY IN DIS
TRt> ' TATED BY A
Some Families in Poverty Need
Food, Some Nourishment For
Sick But AU Need Cloth
"I knew God has sent yo? here."
It was with Giese- words that the
mother of a family In distress, who
tho day before Christmas Eve had di
vided between them tiie last morsel
of food in the homo, greeted a Chris
tian woman of this city when she en
tered the home of poverty last Thurs
day with nourishment for the sick and
hungry, clothing for the- cold and rag
ged and a few delicacies for those of
the family who lie wasting away of
In telling yesterday of the simple
faith of this poor woman and her ear
nest conviction that God had sent
her to that house of deso?a .ion, this
Christian lady spoke feelingly of the
happiness which pervaded other pov
erty stricken homes when some little
necessity, like that of food, clothing
or fuel, was carried there as a result
of contributions made to this cause
through The Intelligencer. But this
happiness can not last long, she stat
ed, for the relief given these people
is only temporary and already some
of them are facing actual want again.
Need Old Clothing.
With the exception of one family,
the six or seven reported In distress
several days ago have food enough to
la Kt them for a lew days longer. But
practically every family mentioned
some days ago cs being in distress is
in need of clothing.
The major portion of the money
turned over to Thc intelligencer for
this work was expended for fuel and
food for tho poor families. As these
wants have been supplied, the good
women who aro looking after the com
fort of the people are now turning
their attention to clothing those-who
aro without sufficient covering for
their bodies. The cast off clothing of
men, women and children of the city
will bo glady received by the commit
tee, and contributions of that naturo
may be left at Tho Intelligencer office,
nothing Var These.
There ls one . family of six. where
food ls needed; immediately. One
member of the family, a girl, is ex
tremely low with pellagra, while a
?ocond member of tho family ls also
ill. Such articles as flour, coffee, su
gar, shortening, meat. etc.. will be
very acceptable. Person wishing to
contribute groceries or monoy with
which to purchase them for this fam
ily, may leave their contributions at
Tho Intelligencer office.
The committee ima under its care
a little airl of some 10 years of age,
who ls In need of shoes and a cloak of
Borne description. Tho little chap has
bad to go through Gio severe weather
to school without covering for her
(eet and without a coat or any other
protection of a heavy nature for her
body. Anything Giat would be suit

There aro two little boys, aged 9
ind 10, who are without shoes and
sufficient clothing. Any articles of
this nature may be left at this office

Young Bridegroom Who Wea
Jailed Monday Waa Freed
Heads that wear crowns are not the
only ones that lay uneasy through
out Monday night, it tho word of a
young bridegroom of less tban 24
hours and that of a father-in-law
whose wrath bad caused the husband
of his daughter to languish in jail all
night is to be taken at its face value*.
Ere the murky day was 10 hours old
yesterday, A. T. Th om a son. esteem
ed resident of the Anderson Cotton
Mills village and an employee of the
Brogon Mills,, and the man who had
had young Anderson Snearm?n put in
Jail as a result of ?Uer eloping
with the former's i -old daugh
ter Monday, came uj to./n and went
to talk things oMjr with his son-in
law, who had spent the night in Jail.
After a long talk about matters, the
father-in-law decided that he would
have the warrant against his son-in
law, which charged him with false
swearing as to the bride's age, with
drawn. The father-in-law then went
before the magistrate and ' paid the
costs of thc action, after which the
bridegroom was allowed to return to
The father of the young bride testi
fied that he had not spent a peaceful
night, and that the bridegroom d/1
not rest calmly ls attested by officials
of the Jail. From the former's con
versation, one would gather that the
young bride made_thlneB lively about
thc home Monday night. Far into the
night lt is reported, tho mother-in
law, who had been much perturbed
over her daughter's clopinent, gave In
and immediately began to beseech the
father to have mercy upon the young
husband ot their young daughter r.sd i

DRIVER R. C. CAMPBELL HAD
Five Malee Were Hitched to
Wagon When It Capsized a*
R. C. Campbell, the 19-year-old driv
er of one of the Standard lil com
pany's large wagons, had a narrow
escape from serious Injuries, if not
death, early yesterday morning when
his wagon turned over near Sandy
Mr. Campbell left Anderson for
Pendleton about dawn, driving Ave
mules to a wagon load of oil which
was to hc ve been delivered to cus
tomers at Pendleton. Shortly after 6
o'clock, as he was driving over a long,
Bteep hill near1 Sandy Springs the
mules stalled. It was while Mr. Camp
bell was endeavoring to get started
agsln that a wind storm swept down
on the wagon.
The force of the wind caused the
heavily 'loaded wagon to slide off the
middle of the road toward the ditch
on the slide.
As the wagon turned into the the
ditch Mr. Campbell waa hurled vio
lently to the ground, his shoulder
striking first and being painfully but
not seriously injured.
No sooner had Mr. Campbell struck
the ground than he leaped up and
cut the carnees from the mules, in
order that they might be freed from
the wreck. Tho mules got out of the
tangle without sustaining injurier,
of any consequence.
Mr. Campbell carried his five mules
to a nearby farm house where he
placed them in a stable for the day.
He then went to the raliway sta
tion and came back to Anderson on
one of the early morning trains, for
the purpose qf making arrangements
for getting tbe wagon and other ma
terial out of the ditch yesterday af
