CONCORD, N. C, THURSDAY, AUGUST 8. 1895. SHE WAS PRAYING. ''Witches" Were Keen in Price Me morial Temple Ioor hy a Colored Woman Tuesday ; Wight Wliic ti Aroused Iler fenperstiMous.Belief. In Wednesday's daily we made mention of some one shouting iq the southern part of the city at an unusually late hour, disturbing the slumberers - and causing a general unrest, and it was not discovered un til late Wednesday night why th's shouting and praying was going on. A certain colored woman, who had b:en to a party, or a dance, was re turning to her home in Chapman town, and when opposite to Price Memorial Temple, she said, three r four large rabbits crossed' Spring street in front of her and got up into the church door, where thev sat upon there hind legs and whined at the woman, who became frightened at the funny capers of the innocent animals. The woman, it is ssid, has been playing in tough luck for some time, having been fcick and out of' em ployment, and the natural weakness of the colored dame in her super stitious imaginations worked upon h; r to sun. m ex c u e came so excited she lost control of herself, claiming that the rabbits were "witches," and that she had seen them before, and in different shapes. She says the witches were pure whit?, and that when she would strike at them with a stick or chunk a rock at them they would jump into the air and hiss at her. As a last resort, she fell upon her knees and asked for assistance from God and man. : Her prayer was heard, not only by Him to whom all should pray, but by nearly all the citizens in that portion of the city. When assist ance reached her the witches.J she said, rose up into air and vanished. She did not forget her Master, how ever. After prayer ehe begnn a little shout, and from bad to worsn it grw. She can't be convinced that she ia not doomed to some great ar.d terrible evil.
