Last Sunday was the hottest day of
the entire summer, and the heat was
sweltering. It wasso hot that it was
almost unbearable. Capt. Purdy, the

of reaching the hundred mark.j
About half past six In the evening it
commenced lightning in the north
with black clouds forming, and near
ten o'clock a strong bretze cainme up,
which cooled the atmosphere. To
wards morning it became very cool,
and at half past five the mercury reg
istered seventy-six, which was a big
difference from the evening before.
Some of our people thought sure that
we were going to get a storm, but it
only blustered and turned cool.

UISHOP SESBMSl S AT GRACE
Bishop D):vis S,.ssums, delivered two
beautiful sermons at Grace Church on
last Sunday morning and the follow
intrg eveling to large congregations.
At the mornling service were a great
emany from the co, intry. The Bishop
expressed his gratification for the op
portunity of visiting this community
again, and to note the various signs of
imnprovement in the church since his
last visit. He exprcssed himself as be
ing niuch pleaseP with the successful
work which the Rev. F. O. B. Boberg
had inaugurated and was carrying on.
the most gratifying feature of which
was the ihe!pin' hIlnd of the church

the event Mr. Bohertg should be re

THE REV. DICK.
A crowded Opera House awaiied
the rising of the curtain last Monday
night to see "The Rev. Dick" played
by the amateurs of Greenville. All
the reserved seats were taken before
Monday night, and by the time the
performance begau, not a:i empty seat
remained. Lake I'rovidence and coun
try turned out well to hear our neigh
bors up the river.
The cast of characters was well
suited to the character of the play,
and all brought out their parts in a
creditable manner. The play opened
at the Rectory, where the members of
the church were reheatsing an enter
tainment in Rev. Dick's honor. The
second act sees the arrival of The Rev.
Dick, who gets himself in trouble liy
having a young baby left on his hands.
In the third act Dick falls in love with
I)orothy Fairtax. Mrs. Sparwood, a
gay married flirt, pl)yedl by Mise Ida

The specialties we consider the best
part of the program.
Mr. Sidney Eckstone, as a sa:ndvich
chaser and dancer, was excellent. lie
possesses considerable talent. Mr.
Harry E. March in "Pliny" came up to
all expectations. Mr. March is' a
clever comedian and is perfectly at
home on the stage.

quite clever; nor can we fail to men

who, as a young coon, was all right.
Miss Ida C. Ward, the author of the
play, deserves credit for tile successful
rendition of it, being especially fort

arrangements to send a troup to Lake
Providence occasionally through the
coming season, which will be appre

Last Wednesday evening out on
Mrs. Murfee's place, a short dijtance
from town, one of the most horrible
catastrophes occurred that has hap
petted in our parish since the explo
sion of the saw mill boiler about fif.
teen years ago, near where the resi
dence of Mrs. Morfee is located, when ,
eight or ten men were killed. Lastl
Wednesday night Alex Porter and
wife went to church not far from their
cabin, leaving their four children in
the house, and about 9 o'clock the
building was seeu to be on fire. By
the time help arrived, it was too late
to save them, and the four children
perished in the burning building.
Their charred remains were gotten
out of the house before they were en
tirely burned up. Porter has no idea
bow ~h\be house caught on tire; when
himself and wife left there was no fire
about. There was no lock on the
door, and it is strange that none of
them did not get out. The oldesi was
a boy 11 years of age. It was a
horrible sight, and it should be a
