OUR TEACHERS MEET.
During the present week there
-convenes in Columbia the South
Camlina teachers' association.
We consider it worthy of note not
aline as a meeting of public in
terest but also as evidence of the
awakened attention paid to the
cause of education at the present
time. The day of the "old field
school" has long since passed
and the typical "rural school" of
a decade'or more ago has in turn
become almost obsolete. The
science of pedagogy has revo
lutionized the methods of teach
ing school and no longer is the;
graduate of a college necessarily
considered to possess all of the
qualifications for conducting a
school unless in addition to mere
academie knowledge he has also
added a special course in peda- 1
gogical instruction. At the pres
ent convention of teachers all
phases of school work will be ex
pounded by experts and it is dif
'ficult to conceive how any teacher
can, atteid these lectures without
gaining a better understanding
of-their profession and being en
lightened upon the practical
working points of a successful
si,hool. We trust that there will I
be a full attendance and that
those teachers unable to be pres
ent will by means of printed ad
dresses and other published pro
.eeedings keep in touch with the
-16e 'the association i.Ll bene
~,'id all success.
The punitive expedition into
Mexio, hichat hiswriting is
daily expected, may possibly lead:
to further complications with
that much troubled republic.
Carranza demands r ecipr oceal
rightsshould the United States
cross the borders of his country
in pursuit of Villa. While this
claim may sound only reasonable
to those who are seeking to pick
flaws in the course of the admin
istration yet one vital point should
be clearly emphasized. If the
government of Mexico were able
to give satisfaction to the Ameri
can government for outrages
such as that s ommitted by Villa
no expedition, punitive or other
wise, would be necessary. Fur
thermore the United States is
able to give satisfaction to the
Southern republic in a similar
case. Therefore the claim of re
ciprocal rights is not as reason
able as it sounds. The only sat
isfaction that America can secure
shall be obtained by pursuit of
Villa but we emphatically oppose
the concession of r e e i p r o e a U
From present indications Mr.
Cooper will receive little support
from the newspapers of the:
State. Especially is the daily:
press laboring overtime to chrys
talize public sentiment in oppo
sition to him or any other one
who may enter the race against V
Governor Manning, on the see
ond term endorsement plea. :
From our point of view Mr.
Cooper or any other Democrat
has a legitimate right to ene
the race for Governor, as much1
right as he had two years ago
and as-much as he will have two
years hence. Mr. Manning like
wise enjoys the privilege of ask-'
ing for a third term if he should'
so desire. The Governor's office
is a two year term and so long as
that is the case all Democrats
have a right to enter the race,
every two years and then let the
people be the judges as to whom
they will have to serve them.
The matter is one in their hands.
We do r.ot claim to be ani
nsurance expert but it strikes
is that the Communication in to-,
lav's~News and Herald, signed
A. B. C., is well worth the con
3ideration of property holders.
E'he fight that the insurancei
!ompanies are now waging will!
aventually do good, while. it may
nconvenience a considerable
number of people for the
time being. There is no
doubt but that the people who
take and carry insurance have
had to pay too much to the mid
dIe men before the money finally
reached the company for whom
it was intended and to go into
the assets of that particular com
pany. Fairfield now has a regu
larly .organized. and well con
ducted mutual fire insurance
company. This could broaden
out and take care of ever-- coun-.
try risk in the county, and on
the same basis could a local or
state company be organized for
the purpose of carrying the
town risks. We also agiee with
A. B. C., that a public meeting.
should be held and the matter
discussed from which some feasi
ble plan might be the outcome.
ORCANIZE HOIRRE COMPANIES
Correspondent Writes of In
surance and Insurance
We notice a recent law passed
by our lawmakers regulating in
surance companies and breaking
up the Southeastern tariff asso
ciation which I think a good law.
in a great many respects. The
insurance companies seem to be;
trying to retaliate because they
can't dictate legislation by with
drawing from the state. Now if
it takes- forty-five per cent of the
annual premium co pay the 'ex
penses of writing fire insurance:
and still they make money-why
can't every community, town and
city, organize a fire insurance
company. Certainly Athe prem
iums paid in every city or town
would cover any average loss
that would ocen M
munity. We'_ive plenty of men in
our ownw-ommunity as able and
as gKGd business men as they.
ar, and if they can make money
it of writing fire insurance.so
an we. Why . cant we get 'to
-ether and discuss the advis
ability of organizing a local fire
insurance company and keep our
noney at home we send abroad.
We all know the community and
risks to be taken, and the values
to govern the amount ot insur-:
nce to be granted. I see no:
eason why an insurance com
pany managed by the right men:
t the head of such an organiza.
ion could not make good money.:
Cant we get together and discuss:
this matter from every stand
ooint. One idea of one man:
brings out another from some
where else, so we may do our*
~ommunity good besides benefit

Royal Ambassadors Meet
The Royal Ambassaeors of the ie

interesting and instructive Home
Missionary program at the Bap- a
tist church Wednesday evening,p
the study being "The Indians"
The church was appropriately i
decorated with Indian tents, camp si
fire, pictures of .Indians and s
pines.~ Some of the ambassadors,,
Elliott Holley and James Smith,
were dressed in Indian cortumes.
The readings a n d dialogues
brought out the religious condi
tion and needs of the Indians.
Pastor Prier sang two -Indian
songs in their language. Miss
Jaunita Dunn and .Willie Hood
sang a song also. The program
was impressively carried out, and
reflected credit on Mrs. Bruce,
the leader of the chapter. It de
served a much larger congrega
tion than attended.
Resolutions of Respect
Whereas, our Heavenly Father
has taken Theodore Bye, a con
sistent member of the Bethel Ep
worth League, from otir midst,
and from the duties and suffer
ings of this life to dwell in His
presence in the mansions on
high: while we are bowed down
with sorrow and sadly miss him
from his accustomed place in the
League, yet, we thank God for
his life and influence among us,
and bow in humble submission
to His will, knowing He is too
wise to err and too good to be
ankind, therefore be it resolved:
First, that a page of our Ep
worth League record book be in
scribed to his memory;
Second, that we, as an Ep
worth League, tender the deep
ly afilicted family our sincerest
sympathy, and pray that they;
may receive the consolation which
our blessed Father alone can
That a copy of these resolu
tions be sent to the family and
to the county paper.
