A feeling of une:siness for a
he safety of American Mission- n
ries in China is everywhere li
nanifested. The uprising and s
pread of the rebt, cause has ,
,reated no little anxiety for the r
ioble men and womeil who e
iave laid their lives on the alter s
>f sacrifice for I he good of
reathern China.
There are quite a number ini
Mhina from South Carolina, and
bherevolution, therefore. is of I
more than usual concern to us.
From the Columbia Record we
take the names of some of the
missionaries of the Methodist
and Presbyterians from this
State as follows:
Among the Columbians now
in China is Mrs. Fletcher S.
Brockman. a daughter of Mr. I
W. A. Clark. His dau-hter's
husband is the general secretary
f the International Young
Men's Christian association, and
is in charge of the territory ly
ing between Hong Hong and
Korea. His headquarters are
at Shanghai, at which place. 1
Mr. and Mrs. Brockman now
are, according to a letter receiv
ed by Mr. Clark from his
daughter recently.
Rev. J. 0. Reavis, pastor of

years Dr. Reavis served with Dr. c

ecently been succeeded in this
position by -Dr. Edward W.

orrespondence with Dr. Chester a
md is an intimate friend of the c

nation received by Dr. Reavis,
)r. Chester cabled on October
10th to Rev. S. 1. Woodbridge,
Lt Shanghai, inquiring concern- I
ng the safety ""of our mission- e
uries in the present disturbed t
,ondition of the empire. He re
yeived the following cable from
