Wednesday, May 27, 1903.
The Election of Prluclpal of the
Muob baa been Raid, and a dlverity of opin- ,
lou has been expressed, in reference to the re
cent election of Principal of tbe Abbeville 1
Tbe trustees of tbe school no doabt acted j
conscientiously in tbe election of tbe prlncl* y
pal, and tbey were no doubt more tban Justl- j
fled in afterward declining to acoept Mr. Gilliam's
No fault can properly be foand witb tbe action
of tbe trustees until it can be sbown tbat
a better man tban Mr. Gilliam bad presented
himself tor tbe plaoe. If no such man ap- ;
plied for tbe position, there can certainly be
no Joat oenaore of tbe board, bat in tbelr actios
tbey deserve tbe well done of tbe people.
Tbe presumption of good faith Is In tbelr
favor. If, however, a better man tban Mr.
Ullilam did apply, atill no fault oonld be
found with tbe trustees If such faot was not
made apparent to them.
Mr. Qllliam Is a stranger amongst us, and
must stand or fall upon bis own merits. He
has no kindred to boost blm, and he has no
political influenoe to belp blm. Tbe trustees,
therefore, bad nothing to consider, except bis
Mr. Uilllam Is a gentleman to whom, as
snoh, we have beard not the slightest objectlon.
But we have beard of'objeotlon to tbe
school management from those who may
have become kickers. ?
We have In former times thought that tbe
trustees did not properly sustain tbe teacher
In the conduct of the school, but we are informed
that at tbe reoent meeting of tbe trustees,
a resolution was unanimously adopted^
pledging tbe unqualified sopport of tbe true* j
tees to tbe teacher In tbe management of tbe t
school for tbe coming year. This being true, [
any oanse of friction may be easily removed. ,
Because of tbe gentleness of bis nature, Mr. *
Qllliam may have been too lenient, but If be J
will In the fatare dismiss obstreperous eobol- |
ars the school will be as orderly as oould be
desired, and Abbeville's good school would
be her greatest pride.
The publlo school Is maintained at public
expense, and the usefulness of the teacher,
and the good results of the school, should not
be Impaired or Injured, because of anybody's
bad boy, or anybody's son who may fall to
observe the rules of the school, and who,
when reprimanded, may choose to be Impudent
to the teacher. Those oblldren wbo
have not been taught to behave at home
-1 should not be allowed to disturb the school
wbere their presence and tbelr evil Influence
may injure better behaved scholars, and detract
from the usefulness of the school. The
better children deserve protection from asso- ,
elation with those who misbehave.
Tbe trustees should not only endorse the
teaober, but they should require him todlsmlss
Impudent or unruly oblldren; and the
teaober should require idle children to learn
It the teacher will require from the children
a proper respect, or will expel unruly <
oblldren, tbe whole town will respeot and up- ]
hold a good school. But what shall be said of (
teachers and trustees that permit lnsubordl
nation on tbe part of oblldren and allow
tbemaelyee to be subjected to lnanlt from tbe
oblldren, or the parents of such children?
Let tbe trustees sustain tbe teacher In enforcing
order and decorum, even to tbe ex* 5
tent, If necessary, of sbuttlng tbe doors of tbe
Tbe school Is a place where deoorum, gentle- *
manly conduct and good manners are to be ]
taught and observed.
If obstreperous boys should appear In their
daises, and If they should be too old or too
big to be whipped, tbey have arrived at exactly
tbe right age to be dismissed from tbe
Personally, this editor does not believe tbat
teachers sbould whip children. When oblldren
are disposed to be disturbers of tbe
scbool tbey should be Bent home. The certain
dismissal would have a more deterrent
? effect tb&n the use of the rod.
Last wttkwe published a very Interesting
article on the snbject of ' Foreign Missions,"
to wbloh Mr. Roche makes a forceful reply
iui? weoi. \
We are not going to get mixed up In a *
question as to tbe merits or demerits of the ?
Catholic religion. However, tbe Idea of oon- s
verting a Catbollo to tbe Proteatant faltb or 8
Inducing a Jew to embraoe tbe Christian
religion, reminds us of a question that was
dlacusaed at a debating aoclety, namely: "Is
It right to oheat a lawyer?" After bearing
able argument on both aides, tbe preaidlng
officer decided that "It is right; bat you
can't do It." It Is In like manner perfectly
rlgbt to convert the Catbollo and the Jew to
our way of thinking, "But yon can't do It." (
We have seen tbe statement that since tbe
days of Abraham, Isaao,and Jacob, no Pollsb
Jew baa ever gone back on bis rellgloua '
laltb. Theae people to this day obsorve tbe J
old ceremonials and are as loyal to their faith
as tbey were tbousands of years ago. A
Catbollo Is about aa liable to be atruok by
lightning as be Is to embraoe tbe Proteatant
form of religions belief. And, nnllke being
strnck by lightning, one experience at obange
of religion la not very effective. As far aa
our information goec we are led to think It a
bard Job to Interfere with tbe religion of a
Jew or a Catbollo.
But, If''Foreign Missions" In Mexico means
tbe conversion of those who are living In
ignoranoe of our 8avlour, then tbe work may
rccult In great good. We favor Missions In
Mexico, rather than In other lands. Mexico
It onr neighbor, and, she like the. lamb that
muddled tbe stream and Insulted tbe wolf,
Mexico may muddy tbe stream for Uncle
Ham. Hundreds of millions of American
dollars are now exploiting Mexico. And
Americans are likely to be found In oom.
pany with tbelr money. In tbe ooursr of
time tbe American Eagle will swoop down
on Mexico. It will then be repaid for expenses
of Foreign Missions in that land.

Grief for things past that caunot be
remedied, and care for things to come
that caunot be prevented, may easily
hurt, can never benefit me. I will,
therefore, commit myself to God in

God gives us always strength and
sense enough for what He wants us to

oureelves, it is our own fault. And
we may always be sure, whatever we
are doing, that we caunot be pleasiug
Him if we are not happy ourselves.
Religion is the art of living, and
nothing else?living with hands, with

, that is religion ; nothing more than
that is possible.
