rds. In. my little study of con
r ions in America, the negro is
tout as much at home here as he
uld be anywhere else. Seeing that
are at home, we should try to do
nothing which would make the
'rid better to live in, and embrace
comfort and conveniences of life.
We know that the future progress

cools, teachers and preachers de

Prayer for Rain.
.\bout thirt-t,) ;:ears ago (I
have h;ul a tih of "Sun'lay School
lime's" subscrihers for this period of
time), you publish- d on your first
page the enclosed poem, "Who
l'rayed Last Night?''" Since then
dluriling tim s of drouth I have sev
'ral tine's asked the local papers to
print it. And in every case when
h! poem was p i-inteI, coining out on
,turday, copous rain has com on
r before Monay. The same thing
s been true when printed in vil
ige papers elsewhieet'.
I believe the poen has stimulated
'hristians to' pray for rain, rather
than to complain of the d routh. I
further be'lieve that thousands of
communities would have the same
good results if your subscribers would
--ut out the copy, which I hope you
will publish, and when rain is great
ly needed ask the local paper to
print it.--A New York Subscriber.
It is a pleasure to comply with
this request of a member of the
"Sunday School Times" family, and
the verse is republished here."

DROWNED IN RIVER WHILE
1. V. Bagwell, 20, Drowned While
Seining at Middleton Shoals.
1. V. Bagwell, about 20 years oi,
was (rowned Wednesday night about
7:30 o'clock at Middleton's Shoals on
the Savannah river while seining in
the river there with a party of about
ten other men.
It was learned this morning that
Mr. Bagwell was carrying one end of
the net when he suddenly stepped
into a deep pot-hole. He was seen
to rise from the water only once
after he first went under. Other
members of the party were unable to
rescue him because of the swiftness
of the water and because of the
treacherous nature of the shoals.
They immediately went down the
river below the shoals hoping that
they might get him from the water
as he came down the river, and with
the hope of being able to bring about
resuscitation provided they were able
to locate him further down the river.
li e was never located however, aend
the search for his body has continued
from Wednesday nlight up to 1 :00
o'clock today without success. Sher

A marriage of interest to the
many friends of the contracting
parties was that of Mr. Joseph T.
Chastain, of Pickens, to Miss Minnie
Swayngham, of the same place,
which took place at the residence of
the officiating officer, J. Alonzo
Brown, on last Wednesday, the 27th
inst. The groom is well known
around Pickens and the upper part
of the county and is a prominent
farmer. This is his second marriage.
All descendants of James and
Agnes Drake, who were among the
first settlers of Abbeville county, are
requested to meet in reunion at Old
