March 17, 188. )
tiss Estelle Todd. Secretary of the Busy bees,
N ewterry, s. '.. United states of America:
M1 lEAn L"rrLE FlREN:-I can
1not express to you and the society y-''u
represen t my gratitude for the kind re
miiembllrallce you have had of me and
liy work, aid for your nice letter.
e Siould you think otherwise, judging
o by my silence, I -ill give a reason.
i\ our letter was re:elved while I was in
the city of Mexico, whither I had gone
to atteinid the (Gene ral Assembly of Mis
ol .ions. When I came home, in the first
c part of tihe last mouth, I found a good
t deal of work to attend to-the mission
was to look after. I found the Rev.
t Iuiter, wife, and three little girls, and
it was iy privilege to assist theni ill
this their new sphere. They c:anlnot
e talk the Mexican language, and I went
out to hunt a home for them, and do
the talking; and, besides, my faunily
were making preparations to go to the
t'iited States to see our poor little girl,
>iwho is atllicted, and who has beei frott,
us almost two years, and under the care
of al oculist. In 1581 she had smliall
d pox here ill Tampico, and slice" then
5 she has been almost blind, and I am
afraid she will never beable to see well.
Mv wife and three little boys were en
1 barked on the English steamer "Tex
San" the first day of this iollth, and
although I have not heard from thein,
they must be to-day in dear old South
C'arolina, which is my native State,
ti although I was raised in North Caro
As soon as may family left I went to
Pauneo,wlhere I have a lission statiol,
and I spent som11e days up there, preaclh
iir there and in Vega de Otates, where
i- we have another congregation. I
preached six tinies in Paunco. \\e had
our communion, and one little Mexrean
girl just eleven years old, and whon'I
baptized two years ago, was received as
in a ineinibelr. 1er name is .1 ulia Perez.
1 She has read the New Testament
through half dozei times, and is a good
little girl. At Vega de Otates, I
- preached three times, attended to our
e comunion, baptized four young per
l sons-three young ladies and one young
f Imian, and a little girl about eight years
old. After I had been there ten days I
caie back to Tampico. My home was
- lonesome. M \Irs. Pressly was not there
. to give me the usual welcome that
awaits me on my return from my trips,
and the three little pairs of arms that
e were always ready to clasp around
r, papa's neck as I get to the head of the
v stairs were far from him. I am living
- all alone now, and take my meals at the
e hotel. Mr. and Mrs. Hunter live near
e our house, on the next block. They are
studying the Spanish language. I got
Lt thei a teacher, whom I had taught
English. Their two eldest little girls
one about ten years, and the other
a seven, are in the public school for girls,
,t and are learning the language also. It
is too bad to see one that can't under
stand anything they hear people say,
110r .speak a word to them. ''hey go to
e hear me preach; they can't find the
s Psalm when 1 give it out, can't under
:1 stand a word of the prayer, can't find
the ehapter I read, and dlon't under
Sstand a word I sayv. When my people
go up to themi, to speak to themi, they
c ani say, "Buenos dias,"' (Good-morn
ling),or "Buenos nloches,' (Good-night),
that is all. That is just the way I was
e wvhen I came to tis country ini 1879. 1
e explect you were a little baby then.
-N either I nor my wife,nor miy two little
girls could talk or understand oneC word
ill Spaish. But no0w we call talk
Spamish. I talk v'ery little English,
andl lmy oldest little boys, Bonner ier
t and( John Ebenezer, can talk both lan
guagles, the one as well as the other;
bu itt poor little Henry -Elliott, the
Iyoungest, just two years old, can't sp)eak
-a word of English. He wvill have to
.learn English whlen lhe gets home.
He speaks Spanlishl nicely'.
Anid you are the secretary of the
"Bs ee Society," numbering fifteen
mienibers, all under t w'elve years of age.
31ay the blessed .Jesus, who took young
children inl his arms, w1heni upon the
r earth, erowni you all and your cflbrts,
ewith his richest faivors. When I re

were surprised at the ehanige, but he
told them wvhat gav'e him joy. Hie had

prayer for tihe itefo rmationl, whom13
their mothers, whol~ had gathered to

Mr. James Lester has invented a ita
chine to "knock down cotton stocks."
We did not have time to see the machine
yesterday, but did see some of the
work. It breaks the stalk completely
near the ground and appears to crush
the stalks into many pieces, thus doing
away with a great nuisance and hin
derniore in cultivating cotton lands.
When we get a chance to examine this
machine, we will give the readers of
The Herald and News a minute de
scription of it and its workings.
Candidate H. F. Shealy of the New
berry TheolQgieal Seminary preached
an excellent sermon in Grace Church
on last Sunday after which Rev.
Marks received seven nienibers, by
confirmation and two by letter. The
Lord's Supper was then administered
to a large number of communicants,
by Rev. Marks assisted by Rev. Z. W.
Bedenbaugh. This closed the series
of meetings which had been begun a
week prior and in which Rev. Schaeffer
rendered valuable services. All honor

On last Friday night we were sur
prised and pained to learn of the sud
den death of our old friend and eon
rade in arms, Simeon D. Wheeler, who,
about 5 o'clock that evening (Friday)
while preparing potatoes for planting,
suddenly fell from his seat dead. He
was an old veteran in the truest sense.
HeI enlisted as a private in Co. "H" 3rd
South Carolina Regiment Vol. at the
outbreak of the late civil war, and a
truer, braver, unswer.ving soldier never
shouldered a miusket. I speak of what I
know. We were mnembilers of the same
CQnmpany. romn the beginning. I have
often marvelled at -his cool untlinching
courage unde.r the most galling fire, in
such great battles as the Seven days
ville, Frcdricksburg, Sharpsburg, Get
tysburg, Chickanmauga, etc. When can
non balls and shells wvere crashing and
thundering on every side, and grape
andeanister hissing on and tearing great
gaps in our ranks, and minnie balls
whizzing and dealing dleath on every
hand, and it seemned as if the fountains
of the i'nfernal regionis were bro: -loose
andlc' e nrades on either side weie fall

igdyn,yet undler these circumstan
ces 'Wheeler was always at his post, and
withI almnost superhumian coolness,
would load, take deliberate aim, fire
and load andl fire, and if perchance his
gun would get out of o,rder by continu
ouls and excessive firing, he would get
that of sonme (lead or woundl(ed conirade
andb continue to fight.
For his cool and daring bravery, to
gether with his nmany other excellent
qual ities, he was promol(ted to the hon
oralble and highly important position of
color-bearer oft the regimen t. With this
great trust, lie on all occasions displayed
the same untflinchiing courage, proudly
carrying the old1 paile perforated anid
lood-stained flag ini front of' the regi
nmen t, calling thne "'boys'' to follow himi.
That dear old1 -battle Ihig was never sul
lied in his hands. He carried it val
antly until the 18 Oct. 1863, when in
a little fight at Knoxville Tenn., he re
civedl a wound in the foot which ren
dered amnputation necessary. Thus end
.ed his nniitary career. Ini ca.imp, he
was a genial companion. On duty, he
was p)unctual and unswerving. At roll
call, lie was alwvays present. On long,
fatiguing-ngar.ches, he never straiggled.
Wheni rations ;mid cloth1ing were short,
