To the South Carolina College, Whose
Centennai .- .11 be Celebratd
J: ary 8-10.
:(Written for the News and Herald.)
To the Editor of the News and
"Fairfield and the South Caro:
lina College," the subject on
which you have asked me to
write, is an inevitable association,
and has suggested itself to many
minds outside of Fairfield county;
the fact is conspicuous that Fair
field county has been peculiarly
identified with the South Caro
lina College, more than any other
county in the State, not even ex
cep Charleston, the home of
t. etstatesmen who founded the
college, or Richland, the home of
the college itself.
Probably the most distinguish
ed living graduate of the college
today is Dr. Jas. H. Carlisle, the
. venerable ex-President of Wof
ford College, a native of Fairfield,
' oo delights to meet young men
from the old county *nd to tell
them of the earlier days in Fair
Sfield. The most universally be
loved and generally useful pro
flssor in the South Carolina Col
lege in our generation was Prof.
R. Means Davis, whose life work
for education in the .State is
second to none. He was a loyal
son of Fairfield, in whose soil his
bdy now rests.
Before the war a large propor
tion of the students of South
Carolina College were prepared
at Mount Zion, Winnsboro, under
Jas. W. Hudson, who graduated
at the college, in 1823, from Dar
lington, and went to Winnsboro
to teach school. Under him Mt.
2ion became the leading academy
in the State, to which came young
men from almost every county to
pare for South Caro1ina Col
e. Thus when they entered
ithe college, they carried with
them something of the atmospbere
ad spirit of old Fairfield. Mr.
V.A.'Cltrk, President of the
liua National Bank in Co
mbils, went as a boy from James
ud to~Mount- Zion, an4 then
to South Carolina Coflege. Other
g entlemen of the elder generation
.in speaking of their acedemic
training link the names of Mount
Zion and South Carolina College,
Winasboro and Columbia.
An incidental result of Hud
n's iuuence was that Fairfield
ys began to join the Euphra
Literary Society (to which i
had belonged), whereas up to 1
atime the county had been in
e Clanisophic column.I
A leader in the legislation for
reopening of the college after
the war, in 1866 as a university,
and after radical rule in 1880-'02,
gas Judge Chas. H. Simonton,
~who, though born in Charleston,
boge a Fairfield name and was
pread of his Fairfield origin.

Stime when there was not at.
Jeast one Fairfield man on the
ioard of trustees. Prominent in
espoulsing and effecting the res
toration of the college was Col.'
Jas., H. Rion, himself a first hion-'
or graduate ielass of 1850). On
the board with him in the early
ghiswere Judge Sunonton and
CoL P. W. McMaster, the latter

lumbia. Later Gen. John Brat
ton was on the board, and now
kUr. Jas. Q. Davis is a member of
the board, as is the writer, who

'airfield man. Isaac L. Withers,

eBryde it was the policy of the

SThe Farmers Salvationi.
Thbe southern farmer's salvation
rests in being true to himself; and
to be true to himself he must
eonsider the casting of his crops
from a commercial point. Cotton
tis a money crop, but the profit is
an invisible and unknown quan
tity on an excessive crop pro
duced at the expense of high
p riued3 necessaries. The cost of
harvesting and perparinlg for
*market an excessiva crop reduces
the prices almost if not quite to
the cost of predetion. When
the farmer makes it a surplus
crop he will not only realize a
satisfactory profit but will in a
large measure control its price.
