Newspaper Page Text
The press is a eat educator,
editors are very e cient teachers,
whose large schools, conducted
on the non-resident system, give
no vacation. (In a parenthesis,
let the wish be recorded, that the
editors of dailies would give and
take one day in the week.) When
newspapers kindly open the way
for their colaborers to give brief
reports, such opportunities should
be freely met. Ths best work of
colleges canr.ot be displayed at
an exhibition, or in the columns
of a paper. When Col. P. M.
Butler started for Mexico, with
his fme Palmetto Regiment, he
said, a good soldier should make
few boasts or promises. It is so
in the educational campaign.
There are many unknown quanti
ties in the problems which teach
ers meet. There are many dang
ers and possibilities of failure be
tween the sowing and the reap
ing. Occasionally a few dates
and figures may be given.
Wofford College began in 1854,
and its exercises have never been
suspended, except in the usual
vacation. For four years (1861
65) a classical school was con
ducted for boys, when the young
men were on duty elsewhere.
The college has sent out more
than five hundred graduates, and
in addition, perhaps, three times
as many alumni, who have taken
partial courses. One-tenth of the
graduates have died. On the
register for this session there are
enrolled one hundred and seventy
nine in college and fifty-seven in
the flitting school on the campus.
Nine young ladies are taking the
Some readers may not have
considered the great educational
changes in oar State that have
taken place within the memory
of men now living. A remarkable
man lives in this city, whose di
ploma is dated "S. C. College,
1837." At that date there was
enly one other college in the
State, Charleston College. Per.
haps two hundred students may
have been a gpod average of at
tendance on both. To-day there
may be twelve hundred young
men in the different stages of a
college course in the State. While
the white population has doubled,
the niumber of white young men
icolles has increased about
many high schools in the cities
for girls, and Dr. Elias Marks was
in the midst of his successful ca
reer at the "Collegiate Institute"
near Columbia. There was no
female college in the State. Now
there may be .fifteen hundred
' and young ladies taking
' her courses of study in female
colleges. Then there were no
schools for the colored race. This
peculiar people, on whom so
much of the burden of society
rests, to whom we are indebted
for such essential services, had
only that education which comes
from regular enforced labor, the
steady rontine of farm life, daily
associatioh with more intelligent
persons and oral instruction, given
in homes, pnd Sunday Schools.
Now, badgs the graded schools
in towns; there are several insti
tutions of higher grade, and they
are filled with students.
To all these must be added the
momentous change, (with all thie
varied results to follow it,) from
the free school for the poor to
the publie' school for all classes.
At the date alluded to there
was no daily in the State except
Whan the two great parties in
our country met, a few months
ago, to select standard-bearers
they took four college men. In
the senate at Washington more1
than one-half have had some col
lege training. From our State,
delegation five out of nine passed
through college courses. Yet
this small faction, for some rea- 1
son or other, does yield more
than its mathematical share of,
officials and leading men. A col
lege president is quoted as say- I
ing that a college education is an
absolute guarantee against pov
erty and distress. It seems that,
being a college officer is not a
guarantee against unwise state
ments. In the last few years it
has frequently been asserted that
in Germany, there are not a few
educated ien, with academic
titles, who are scarcely able to
make a living. With us to-day
the man who boasts of his di
ploma. or expects it to bringr himi
honor, or bread even, will find he I
has made a serious mistake, and
so, too, will he who, a college
education being within his reach,
refuses it lazily, saying: "I can
get along without as well as with '
it." "The high peaks may be
rarer iow than they were a gene-a
r.ation or two ago, but the table- I1
land of society generully is
higher." Does this give a reason
why those coming forward in life
to-day may be carelpss about
their preparation? 6ther things
being at all equal the trained
minds must have some advantage
in the competitions and collisions
of life. Colleges may furnish a
very good but not the only way
to mental training. The crisis,
the pressure, the stern necessities
of common life may draw out,
strengthen and direct the powers
and energies that lead to success.
Every young person is not caRed
to go to college. All who go or
are sent are not called to stay
through the course. On one
hand a year in college has often
given a life-long impulse and di
rection to the student's character.
On the other hand, if by labor
saving help and night-paths, it
could be, that all the scholarships,
the book knowledge, usually
gained in a four years' course,
could be hurled into the mind
in one year, it would not follow
that the full effects of a ripe col
lege course have been gained.
And yet the collegessnow at
work in this small State may be
expected to send into the differ
ent walks of life some currents
of good influence. Education, as
the word is sometimes used, is
no security against viee or worth
lessness. The - gigantic crimes
that shake society to its centre
are not the work of men who can
not read or write. They are
chiefly the work of selfish, un
principled, educated men. The
higher their type of educatioif, the
wider is their sphere of evil in
fluence. Some one has said it -is
one thing to decline and parse
the noun virtue, but it is a very
different thing to practice virLtde.
There is a knowledge for lack of
which people and nations perish.
There is also a knowledge which
only hastens their perishing. The
president of a great uniyersity
has a motto, "Character and i
scholarship, but character above I
scholarship." Rightly under.
stood this is true. In some cases,
in many cases, character may in
some degree make up for want of
scholarship. In no case cnnI
scholarship make up for the want

There is a disease prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep
tive. Many sudden deaths are caused by
it-heart disease, pneumonia, heart failure
or apoplexy are often the result of kidney
disease. If kidney trouble is allowed to ad
vance. the kidney-poisoned blood will attack
the vital organs, or the kidneys themserves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Then the richness of the blood-the albumen
