Miss Mamie Addison.
On last Thursday night at half

daughter of J. L. Addison, deceased,
and Mrs. Virginia Addison, left
her earthly tabernacle of clay, and
with the dear ones who have gone
before, is enjoying that rest which
remaiueth to the people of God.
Mamie Addison had given her
heart to the Savior in her child
hood, and was a member of the
Baptist Church. She was active
in Christian work, and in death as
in life testified to the loving kind
ness and tender mercies of her
Redeemer, when she said to those
gathered about her bedside, '"Tis
so sweet to trust in Jesus." She
was the solace, guide, and coun
sellor of her devoted mother, to
whom all the community extend
their heartfelt sympathy. The
Sunday-school class of boys whom
she had endeavored to lead in the
paths of righteousness, followed
her remains to her last resting
place. Her services will be greatly
missed in the Woman's Missionary
Society of the Baptist Church,
where she held an office of trust.
"Weep not that her toils are over,
Weep not that her race is run,
God grant we may rest as calmly,
When our work', like hers, is done."

Dots From Antioch.
MR. EDITOR : Crops in this sec
tion have been gathered and the
farmers are devoting their time to
sowing oats, building houses, and
other things that claim their atten
tion at this season of the year.
Speaking of crops reminds roe
of an amusing incident that oc
curred not long ago. One of the
leading firms of Edgefield advanc
ed supplies to deacon Brunson of
this community this year to raise
his crop. The deacon is a very
pious old darkey, always attends
conference on Saturday and preach
ing on Sunday, grass or no grass,
meat or no n.eat. When the dea
con's notes were due he did not
show that promptitude which
characterized him in his church
affairs, so Messrs.-sent a very
smooth talking young man down
to remind the old brother of his
short comings. The young man
asked to be directed to the resi..
dence of the deacon. Having i
rived thereat the young collect
stated the object of bis visit ai
requested the deacon to show hi
his crjp. A smile at once play
upon his cheeks and he led t
collector to a partially cover

corner lay about 150 lbs. seed cc

shucked corn, a few feet away w
a half peck of peas, and in o
corner lay a huge pumpkin. T
old man stood with both hands
his pockets trying to explain wh
he thought was in each pile, ai
why there was not more. Tl
youngman caught on to the do
to steady himself, indeed I thoug
he was going to faint. Havii

The Public School System of
South Carolina--A Little Learn
ing Not a Dangerons Thing.
MR. EDITOR . In my last article
to your paper I made it my pur
pose to prove that the Public
School System in South Carolina
was not so poor as ooe Mr. "Van
Star" had represented in a former
article. I only stated plain facts,
truths that can not be denied for
history is not a works of fiction,
bul of things real. IQ a second
article Mr. "Vau Star" comes out,
not condemning what I said as he
may have thought, but with an
entire new subject, that South Car
olina should have a better system
of education. We do not claim to
have discussed anything of that
kind, but we were defending tho
system as it now is, as not being
such a very poor syHtem.
I did not deny thc? fact that
South Carolina should have a bet
ter system, 1 agree with that, but
I do say South Carolina is not
alone in this need and therefore
my statement holds good that the
system in South Carolina is as
good ae auy of the Southern States
and even :hat of New England
All should have a bettem system'
Teunesee itself could have a bet
ter system, "that immortal Ed
ucational State." All the United
States of America could have a
better System, and that System in
my humble opinion should be
Compulsory Education for in these
days of "hard times" a mau with
out au education is a splendid
slave, and he must and does de
pend on the educated for intelli
gence and for everything.
But surely it is not a youth, a
son of the Grand Old Palmetto
State who can stand oft*', in auoth
er State, and with a critical eye
paint to the Educational System
of South Carolina with the finger
Again I point him to history
where he can see that South Caro
lina has always stood ahead of any
of her sister states in educating
the young, and if she has beeu so
from the foundation, is she not
much more, capable now than ever?
She is not one of thoee states with
out progress. She really has a
good thing once and awhile. Our
ancestors ''even at the remote
date" of 1712, knew a good thing
when they saw it, and we, who are
true sons of South Carolina of
this day "in the year of our Lord
1894" are better qualified to
know a good thing when wa get it
than they were.
Mr. "Van Star" knows less about
the System of Education in South
Carolina than I thought he did.
He says the public schools run
only two months. Can he sup
port that assertion. Where I am
teaching in the town of White
Rock, Lexington Co. S. C., the
public term is never less than 3i
months and this year, the term of
1894-95, will run a few days over
four months, -and at the end of
each month the teachers are paid
according to a salary agreed upou
by teachers and trustees of the
Now who would blame the school
system because a child did not ad
vance rapidly? Doe* not that de
pend upon the teacher? It is neg
ligence in any community, ou the
part of the trustees, if they do not
select, with care, the very best,
teacher. How the poor depend
entirely on the public term for ed
ucating their children ! And "Van
Star" says abolish it because of
the little benefit received, and he
also says "many do not get started
before the time is out, and be
cause of the inability to continue,
and the student is compelled to
stop school." If they receive a
little beuefit from the public school
is not that better than no benefit!
That is the only way in which
thousands feel able to educate
their children. Shall we be told
for the thousandth time that "a
little learning is a dangerous
thing,' that the smattering of
knowledge one gets in the public
school is woree than ignorance?
Pray tell us, Mr. Wise man, how
many persons there are in the
community, even among the edu
cated, who have a really, not a
relatively, profound knowledge of
any subject. We are never too old
to learn and if we can get only "a
little" benefit from the public
school may it not be of great ser
vice to help us to get a little more
knowledge. Again, if a little
knowledge, even that of the "eier
nal baker" is to be shunned as
dangerous, how is one ever to ac
quire a great deal? It. seems to me
that if a little knowledge is dan
gerous no knowledge is more dan
gerous still. And, if to get to "ba
ker" is Jangerous, not to get toit
is more dangerous still. Thece are'
two kinds of Education; there is
the Education of Harvard and
Yale, and there is the education of
the public school ; and the latter
kind is quite as valuable as the
former. Then stop a valuable
thing! No let it go on and on and
ou world without end.

This plan of insurance has been

There is no change in the plan of

to the size of the county and the
