A happy New Year to all the
reabars of the News and He'rald
Reducing the acreage of cottoi
and the raising of home supplie
is-the only solution of the cotto2
price problem that is now upon
the Southern people.
With the price of cottoi
continually going down it is i
very unlucky thing for the Soutl
that it produced about 13 milliox
bales of cotton this season.
The low price of cotton is go
ing to necessitate the farmers o
this section making the fulles
use of every opportunity to rais<
their supplies at home. Thei:
first opportunity in this directioi
is in the sowing of as much Iant
in oats during this month as t ie
Dr. J. D. Hunnicut, editor o
the Southern Culticator' diei a
his home in Atlanta a few day:
ago. He has frequently addres;sei
gatherings of farmers in this anc
neighboring states and has con
tributed valuable service in get
ting the people of the South t<
realize that their prosperity ii
in diversified farming.
It is to be hoped that th<
proper county officials and th
delegation in the general assem
bly will not be so engrossed wit]
other matters at this time as t<
fail to take the proper steps fo
carrying out the suggestion# tha
have been made by the gran<
jury for several successive term
in regard to the improvements of
the court house and the remova
of the jail.
Furman University is indeei
fortunte in having so true
friend as the venerable Dr. C. H
Judson, who, after fifty years o
the most faithful service in iti
behalf with many flattering calli
elsewhere, now gives it his beatuti
ful home, valved at $7,000, as
Christmas present, this in ad
dition to his gift of $21,000 las
With this issue we enter uipor
our fifth year as editor and pub
lisher of the News and Herald
We feel very grateful for th
support that has been given ut
by the people of the county as i
expressed in the great increa:Ie ii
the number of our subscribers
and a corresponding increase ir
the advertising and job depart
ments. We ..hall continue tc. use
our very best efforts to give thenm
a paper that will be a welcome
visitor into their homes. Our po
* litical faith is unchanged: "Fair
field county is out' politics."
The opening of the South Car
olina College a hundred years
ago was a very important eveni
in the history of the old Palmiettc
State, for then was set in motioi
tl, movement that has led to the
large part the State is taking ii
the education of its youth. How
well the founders planned and
how well the workers have work
ed is fully attested in the p roud
history of the college, which in
the hundred years ending has con
tributed so largely to the i.ntel
lectual and material developnent
of this commonwealth. While
grateful for its proud achieve
ments in the past, there is; the
larger occasion for gratituda for
the great work that it is doing to
day, when its student bodly i~
larger than at any time,in its his
.tory. It is but fitting tha~t its
first centennial should be ob
served in a way that is becoming
such a happy event; and for this
purpose the faculty and trustees
of the college have mapped out a
program of three days that wil]
be a suitable commemoration for
the time. But there is need for
a more permanent tribute, one
that will mark a new begi nning
for the historic institution. This
it is proposed to' make by con
verting the college into a univer
sity. The appropriation that will
be asked for dIis purpose is com
paratively very small; and cer
tainly so noderate a requeslt can
not be refused by the general as
sembly. With the enlargemnent
that would be made possible
through this assistance at this
time, the college would enter upon
the second century of its history
* with every prospect of a brighter
and more useful future. May it
have the enlarged success that its
glorious past would entitle it to!
A Timely Topic.
