..WINNSBORO, S. C.
Wednesday, Jan. I I, 1905
Whatever else Fairfield's dele
gation in the general assembly
may fail to do, let them not fail.
to provide some way for the nec
essary improvements for the court
house and the jail.
It is-now positively announced
that Charleston is to have a union
passenger depot. The city by
the sea is to be congratulated on
securing this long needed im
provement, which should be forth
coming as soon as the circum
stances will permit.
By a general reduction of the
cotton acreage, those who are
now holding their cotton .and
those who plant this year will be
enabled to get better prices than
at-present. There is- no possibil
ity of raising the price without
decreasing the supply.
Thursday, January 19, is Lee's
birthday. All the schools in ths
South should observe it, not by
turning their pupils out - for the
day, but by having exercises that
will be appropriate -to the occa
sion, so as to better acquaint
them with the life and the charac
ter of the South's great chieftain.
The new county that has been
made. from parts of Abbeville,
Greenwood and Edgefield coun
ties with McCormick as the coun
ty seat, is very fortunate in
selecting Calhoun a,s its name.
Other prospective new counties
should be governed by this ex
ample and select names that have
some historical significance.
There is a good deal of talk
about reducing the cotton acre
age. It remains to be seen what
wil be done in the matter. If the
acreage is reduced, those who
now have cotton and all who
plant cotton will be greatly bene
fited thereby. If it is not reduced,
those who are now. holding cotton
and those who raise cotton this
year will all have to sell it at very
With the high price of cotton a
year ago on account of the short
ness of the crop and with the
low price of cotton at present on
account of the large crop that is
being made the farmers jiave a
very. striking demonstration that
the price of cotton is affected in
some measure by the laws of
supply and demand. Another
long crop means still lower prices.
A short crop by decreasing the
acreage will mean higher prices.
While pleading for a fireproof
vault for making the recoras of
Fairfield county safe against loss
-by fire, we most heartly endorse
the effort that is being made by
Secretary of State Gantt to have
the historical records of South
Carolina properly arranged and
protected from loss by fire. These
records are invaluable and no
'7 expense should be spared to pre
serve them, for if lost they could
not be replaced in any way or at
The general assembly will find
itself face to face with compulsory
education. Following the well
defined precedent of most of the
leading foreign countries of the
world and nearly all the States of
this Union, the measure would
easily pass. There are none who
question that there is a very large
per cent. of illiteracy among the
whites of the State, nor are there
any blind to the fact that there
are many, many whites of school
age in the mills and on the farm,
in the town and in the county
who are not in school at all or
who are in so few months as to
make this schooling couant for but
little. Another fact, that is equal
ly apparent, though either from
prejudice or blindness it will not
be generally admitted, is that the
negroes in proportion to their
opportunities are giving more at
tention to the education of their
children than are the whites.
These facts argue forcibly for a
system that will bring about a
better condition of things. Long
er terms and better teachers can
not avail if the children are not
put to school. If parents fail in
putting their children to school,
then that same authority that
provides the funds for the school
.should enforce attendance upon
.it. Yes, there is need for a cosi
Spulsory education, so compulQory
that parents can not get out of
having their children at school.
If under a compulsory educa
-- tional system the negroes should
make more progress than, as so
many seem to think, the~ whites,
it would be no less to the credit
of the former and equally to the
discredit of the latter. This keep
ceep the negro ignorant is very
orcibly illustrated by. the. satis
ied condition of the editrr in the
lollowing story: An editor, before t.
being escorted to the regions of t
aternal bliss, was given an oppor- F
tunity by the escorting angel to E
visit the lower regions. During s
their stay in this region of the r
damned and the lost, as the story
goes, the two became separated.
and when the angel again came
upon the editor, heswas found sit- a
ting in front of a furnace, seven
times hot and bearing the in- a
scription, "Delinquent Subscri
bers." The editor, on being in- e
formed by his escort that they
would now proceed to the realms
of eternal joy and peace, replied,
"You may go on; I will stay here:
this is heaven enough for me.-"
Verily, there is nothing that con
tributes so much to making a hell
of this earth as illiteracy, the
seed-bed of sin and crime. .
THE ANDERSON-REOHR COMPANY
Next Lyceum Number Will be fiusical
All members of the Lyceum l
will have the opportunity of 1
hearing the above company here
on the thirteenth of this month.
This company is composed of t
artists only and each number for A
this special evening will be ren
dered by artists. The following t
is from the Minneapolis Journal:
"Ruth Anderson-Reohr chose
numbers that exacted the full
measure of a violinist's powers,
demanding a versatility in inter
pretation as well as assured mas
tery of technique, but the ease 4
with which she conquers all diffi
culties seemingly made them non
existing, and fully warranted her 4
choice. Her first number (1st
movement from 1st concerto, I
Vieuxtemps) was the severest test
of technique, and' was given an I
able and dignified rendering. I
Saint-Saen's Rondo Capricciosso <
was perhaps more pleasing, de- (
pending upon coloring and in- t
terpretation, in which the render- <
ing showed deep thought, with i
most artistic and finished results.
"Miss Wilma Anderson has an
exquisite touch as well as a pre
cision and delicacy of execution 1
which marked her at onee as an
artist, both in temperament and I
technique. The fuli measure of
her strength was reserved for the
concerto (2nd of Liszt)-she ren
dered delicately and exquisitely I
the delicate passages and bril- I
liantly and boldly the bravura
portions. Her tone is of beauti
ful quality and of variety of color.
Miss Anderson's art is not nar
row, for though she shows a.fine
poetic sense, she has plenty of
fire and spirit, and her.reading ofI
Chopin also deserves warm praise
for she grasped both the broad
and poetic style of the composer.
"D'Arlington Reohr has a tepor I
voice of beautiful quality, which I
he handles with perfect ease. He
displayed much sympathy in the <
aria 'Lend I.ie Thine Aid,' from
'Queen of Sheba,' and his drama
tic climaxes are immense. He I
shows ur mistakably the genruine]

Iowa no longer believes that
)ducation is merely a .pastime of
3tudents and a delight to scholars.
[t has a ten-million-dollar cash
vidence that learning is of value,
md that a college professor is a
irst-class investment. When a
rear ago the State hired a man at
ive thousand dollars a year to
each the farmers hew to raise
.orn there was a protest from all
wer the rural Eections. What,
each Iowa farmers how to raise
orn! Better tell your grand
nother how to knit socks or suck

state of the country, and though
he yield had been falling off in
ate years, it was not believed

cts of nature.

hat of last year by 125,000,000

ast winter and ,this spring in

should do. He got them to save

iould be planted, cultivated,

the interest in his labors that

ion have been published and the
