The best evidence of the pros
perity of this section is the in
creasing interest in education, as
is shown in the increased at
tendance upon all the colleges.
And this is the basis for hope for
still greater prosperity in. the
yours to come. Education and
prosperity go hand in hand.
A home with beautiful sur
roundings on the outside sug
geste' that there is happiness
within. Nothing counts f o r
mere in making the home beauti
ful than trees laden with rich
ripe fruit. Every passer-by
envies such a home and only
wishes that such were his good
fortune. With only -a i t t l e
trouble and expense every home
can have these lovely surround
ings that add to making t h e
home beautiful and to th.e hap
piness and healb of its owupants.
Now that the time for the settinag
out of fruit trees is so near at
hand, around every home there
should be making preparations
for having more fruit. The re
sults will more than justify the
efforts that it will require.
The first vessel bringing im
migrants directly to the South
will land at Charleston early in
November. This opening of the
Charleston port to European im
migration has been brougt about
through the persistent efforts of
Secretary Watson of the Depart
ment of Immigration and Com
merce. Every effort is being
put forth to find as desirable op
enings for these immigrants,
when they arrive, as possible.
Secretary Watson will be glad to
hear from any paities desiring to
try any of these immigrants in
any way at all. Such parties
should write him in Columbia,
stating how many immigrants
they want, for what service and
at what wages. Parties so writ
ing will be listed among those
desiring to employ these white
people and as far as possible
their wishes will be e->mpaied
Cotton is king. It takes its
~ place right to the very front of all
the agricultural products of the
world. There is no crop grown
that gives employment to more
people in its production and the
same is true of the number em
ployed in- converting the raw
S material into the manufactured
product. And Tet despite this
*place of royalty there is no crop
that is handled with more crude
ness in all its stages than this
leading staple of the South.
This is seen in the preparation of
the soil and in its cultivation.
But more especially is this true
of the mainer in which it is
bandied after being brought from
the field. It is piled away in
almost any old house and in any
kind of a way. In most instances
-it is hauled off to some gin and
the time consumed in getting it
ginned and placed on the market
is enormous. There is the team
and the hands for hauling it to
the gin, the wait at -the gin which
is often for hours at a time, the
hauling the cotton and the seed
back home, and then hauling
them again to market. This all
takes time and labor and cuts
big holes into the profits. Tc
the farmer who gins from 50 tc
100 bales these costs run up so
high, that he might well consider
the advisabiltiy of having his own1
gin. Then, too, there are nor
palatial roads for hauling this
royal crop to market over. And.
tbe time thus Iost adds greatly to
piling up the expenees anid takingc
s~till other slices out of the profits
There is need for sober thought
on the part of farmers along thes'
lines, especially in view of the
increasing labor problems, and
for business action that will bring
about more sane and sensible?
methods and means for handling
their greatest crop.

A Word to Parents.
The following editorial b y
Captain Charles Petty, the kind
and wise editor of the Carolina
Spartan, has wholesome counsel
for thoughtful consideration for
parents who have entered their
children in the city school.
Capt. Petty says:
"Next week the school children
will have the right of way on the
streets for an hour in the morn
ing and in the afternoon. While
they have the right of way they
are not entitled to a monopoly of
the sidewalks. Let the teachers
instruct them to keep on the
right and leave the left side for
those they meet. They will not
get this instruction at home, for]
parents and "grown ups" have I
not learned this lesson. But we]
leave the management of the]
school to the teachers and turn
our attention to the parents,c
many of whom think they havei
done their full duty when they
get their children ready for school..
Learning the A. B. C.'s and get- I
ting and reciting lessons is nots
the only aim of the school. It s
would be a poor affair if that was f
all. The most important lessons a
relate to character. Between the ~
years of 6 and 12 these virtues,
or the lack of them are established;
ruthfulness, kindness, neatness
in dress and person and good
behavior everywhere and on all o
ecasions. Parents. should un- S
erstand that they have constant f
mnd caroful work to perform in n
;raining their children. They v
~hould begin by setting a good y
~xample. The mother with a Ic
itter, grumbling, fault finding Ih
ongue, will be imitated by the fa
bidren. The pairents that are
lways censuring teachers ma;y y
~xpect their children to be- nuraly it
nd unmanageable. Frorm the it
irty, slovenly kept home, dirty i;
~bildren will go to the school.v

Good Roads and Rural flails.
It is announced that the govern
ment will look more carefully to
the enforcement of its rule re
garding the roads over which
rural free delivery is established.
The present requirement is:
"Roads traversed shall be kept
in good condition an unobstructed
by gates; there must not be any
unbridged creeks or streams not
fordable at any season of the
year." In many cases the resi
dents along proposed routs have
made improvements that enable
them to obtain rural delivery
service, but sometimes the efforts
to keep up the roads are relaxed.
but the government has decided
that unless the roads traveled by
the carriers are properly main
tained the service will be with
drawn: The Postoffice Depart
ment now calls on -the carriers
for reports on the road, and will
stop the serviee where the high
way in question are bad.
The 35,973 rural delivery car
riers now employed cover 863,363
miles daily, and it is unreasonable
to expect them to contend with
neglected roads, or to walk for
communities lacking the enter
prise to keep their common high
way in decent shape. Wherever
a route is discontinued the in
habitants themselves to. be te
blame for it, for if alive to their
own interests and duty to the
public they would give their roads
vigorous and constant attention.
The idea that a route onced au
thorized is necessarily permanent
is a mistake. Advice on the best
roads methods is supplied by the
Agriculture Department, and a
neighborhood that loses its rural
delivery must itself bear the
discredit for so- unpleasant and
humiliating an event.
A community torn by dissen
sions. rent asunder by strife and
contentior-the people ready
always to fly at each other's
throats on account of rivalry and
petty jealousies-can never hope
to succeed. The universal broth
erhood of man is constantly de
ferred and the end of time will
appear before this great desidera
tum can be brought about, unless
man shall be brought to the
realization of this, his dominant,
weakness. Let h i m inquire,
