On account- of feeling indis
is posed, Rev. P. F. Crawford had
e the ordinance of baptism admin
istered to 31 conjdidates last Sun
r day ftvening by Rev. J. E. Fos
ter at the pool in the Southern
5, part of Pickens. It was not outr
h privilege, along with lots of
1- others who went, to see the or
Le dinance administered, therefore,
a we can not discourse on the
1- sacredness and solemnity of this
y scene. There was a lot of bung
d ling work to contend with. First,
the pool was not roped off to
keep back the crowd, and sec
ond, the crowd of "funny"
d folks and "gazers" was the
mA largest ever down there, and
those who went for 'a pure,
christian motive were crowded
ve back so that they could not par
ie ticipate. Children, and those
r. of larger growth, were there
who know not what good breed
ing is, and at the request to get
be back from the pool, only crowded
h up the closer. Those on the
outer edge tried to behave, but
were forced up to the pool iby
le some of those in buggies who
were too indolent to get out or
too anxious to see,and thus used
this means to place themselves
in position to see. Lots of child
dren were present~ who were at
s5, the edge of the pool, who were
Ly crowding through the crowd to
es see, and were laughing and
to snickering. as the candidates
re were being immersed. One per
re son in particular, (and we think
ill he calls himself a gentleman) a
le young man, placed himself on
his knees and became a very in
ry terested spectator, laughing at
ns the candidates and using his
a eyes for all they wvere worth,
id especially at the candidates
of the female gender. . 'Tis
tie a pity that some. of those who
le saw his antics did not tip him
lie head-foremost over into the pool,
at or, better still, lead him to where
en he really belonged.

Cal- quite active for the past few

n, make into "bitters for the old

id of their boots, for the revenue

up- haunts and have been hot on'
