WJNNSBORC, S. C.
Faiday. June 14 - - - 1901
The June session of the court
in this county has been a remark
able one in that there was nc
mistrial or acquittal.
The Negro Young Peoples'
Christian Congress which is to
meet next year is now figuring
on a place for the convention
which it is reckoned will be at
tended by 10,000 delegates. At
lanta, Washington, Chattanooga,
Memphis and St. Louis are bid
ding. It is too new a thing fox
Atlanta not to capture.
McLaurin has been called a
Repulican and Tillman has been
termed a Populist. The formei
has been called upon. to explain
wherein his views differ from
those held by the Republican
. rty. It is about time that the
-atter shoiald explain wherein his
views are not in accord with those
lAeld by the Populist party.
So far the number of names
necessary to secure a farmer's
institute for this county has not
been received. Surely t h e r e
should be fifteen farmers in this
county enough interested in this
matter as to send in their names.
These institutes can be of very
great service to the people of the
county, if they will but avail
themselues of them.
The Southern Industrial Con
vention is in session this week in
Philadelphia. Its object is to
bring about a closer relation be
tween the North and the South
in trade matters. Unfortunately
South Carolina has no represen
tative in this convention which
should mean so much for the de
velopment of the trade of this
section of the country.
commencements in South Caro
.lina are held between the second
and third Sundays of June. The
number of graduates this June
has been inuaually large. This
ga expeeted for the colleges are
i~ at beter goedition now than at
my3 tim~ is a god many years.
th present indications are that
the attendance another year will
be fine, It is a great credit to
the State that so much interest
is being manifested in the cause
There is great gratitude through
out the State that Dr. Carlisle
has conseted to act as president
of Wofford College for another
year. No man has exerted great
er influence for the cause of edu
cation in the Palmetto State than
this distinguished son of Winns
boro, or rather of South Carolina.
Already beyond seventy-six, xnear
ly fifty years of which he has
spent in the same place,. thouig
many inviting offrs were made
him to go elsewhere, he is still
the beloved president of Wofford
College. Wth. a]l l he things that
might be said in his behalf the
ngos) rjeigrkable is that Spartan
lpag-with all of its material pros
' riy has not yet grown large
eough to have a building that
will hold the audience that gath
ers when he is . announced for a
lecture. And what is more s ig
nificant still is that there is no
other man that can draw as 1- ry
'an audience in Spartauur as.
Apropos of what wa~s said in i
recent editorial in this paIper' n
regard to boarding s -hools, it wil:
be noted that WXofford Coll. ge
has decided to estab~lish anothei
fitting school in additioni to the
two she already has,~ The sig
nificance of thie. Ests,biishment of
this additional: sr]bool-, which will
be in the Pef4 lee section, is that
Wofford Colbge realizes that there
is a demad for additional board
ipg' schools in South Carolina.
Thi& demand we pointed out in
.the editorial referred to above,
and as a further evidence that
this is a growing movement, this
editor knows of another large
basding school that is being
ovganized. There is no mistake
about the fact that the demand
for good boarding schools is rap
idly increasing, and as the country
sobiools increase in efficiency, the
demanA for the baring cools
will be the greater, for the number
of those who will be advanced to
the point of being able to do
high grade preparatory work will
be greatly increased. The success h
that is now attending the board
ing schools that are in operation a
is a strong evidence that there is i
room for more such schools. Again v
we suggest that the business men
of Winnsboro open their eyes to c
this advance educational move- t
A Sensible Judge.
The court room is a place
where a good many amusing
things occur. The examination
of witnesses is often the occasion
of a good laugh ior the visitors to
the temple of justice. In many
instances the joke is on the wit
ness, but sometimes the table is
turned and the examiner is the
one who is hit. An instance of
the latter kind occurred in the
court room this week. On the
stand as a witness was a promi
nent farmer of the western sec
tion of the county, who is a little
deaf. The attorney asked him a
question, but reccived no answer.
The question was repeated, but
still there was no answer. The
examing attorney then threatened:
"I will appeal to the judge and
he will make you answer the ques
"That, he won't," was the reply
of the witness who was not too
deaf to catch the attorney's re
marks. "He's got too much
sense to ask any such fool ques
tion as that."
The sheriff's "Order in Court"
was not sufficient to restore quiet
in the court room.

favorable weather continues to

Tuesday evening at the Thes
>ian Hall the Luke school re
)eated an entertainment that it
1ad given in the country a few
iights before. Whether it was
he good things that had been
iaid about this entertainment, or
whether it was the interest the
Winnsboro people felt in the suc
:ess of this venture on the part
>f their visiting friends, there
was an unusually large turn out,
he size of which can best be de
ermined by the door receipts
Yhich amounted to about $50,
hough the admission price was
>nly 25 cents for adults and 10
ents for children. It might be
ruthfully added that had the
>eople of the town known what a
ich treat there was in store for
hem, the attendance would have
een much larger, though as it
vas it seemed that every family
n town was represented. From

Too Busy to Pray.
Jesus seems to have devoted
himself specially to prayer at
times when his life was unusually
full of work and excitement. His
was a very busy life; there were
nearly always "men coming and
going" about him. Many o us
in our day know [what this con
gestion of occupation is; we are
swept off our feet with our en
gagements, and can scarcely find
time to eat. W e make this a
reason for not praying; Jesus
made it a reason for praying. Is
there any doubt which i,, the
Many of the wisest have in this
respect done as Jesus did. When
Luther had a specially busy and
exciting day, lie allowed himself
longer time than usual for prayer
beforehand. A wise man once
said that he was too busy to be
in a hurry. He meant that, if he
allowed himself to become hur
ried, he could not do all that lie
had to do. There is nothing like
prayer for producing this calm
self-possession. When the dust
of business so fills your room
that it threatens to choke you,
sprinkle with the water of prayer,
and then you can cleanse it out
with comfort and expedition.
Rev. James Stalker.
Once, when Mark Twain was to
lecture in a small western town,
-aga greeted ,at the
statiokby .the sijniotor, who was
to be his Kan-~t durihs1fe
stay. On their way to the par
sonage, the minister asked if it
would be agreeable to Mark if he
opened tile lecciure with prayer,
as was the custom. Of course,
the humorist was delighted, and
accordingly, when they reached
the hall that evening, the min
ister left the lecturer sitting in the
corner of the platform, took the
centre of the stage himself and
proceeded to offer a prayer about
haf-an hour long, in the course
of which he gave his views on all
the current affairs of interest, and
concludling by saying: "And now,
O Lord, we have with us to-night
a man who is known throughout
all the world as the great Ameri
can humorist. Help us, 0 Lord
help us to understand what he is
about to say to us, and to be
amused by it; and, if possible,
grant that we may derive some
real benefit from his lecture."
