A Poor Man. .
Once upon a time not many moons
ago, an Edgefield merchant became in
volved in his business matters and
finally broke, kicked the financial
bucket, so to speak. In talking to S im
Taylor of tba catastrophe, this mer
chant remarked to him incidentally.
"Sam 1 am broke, I haven't anything
left IIOW but my conscience." Sam
made no audible response but fell over
backwards into the Dispensary cellar
and when he struck the bottom com
menced to cry as though his heart
would break. ''What is the matter
Sam" some one asked. "Oh said Sam,
I am crying for that poor man; he is
too poor lo live, he says he has lost ev
erything but his conscience and that
puts him in a worse lix tuan the widow
spoken of in ancient times who had
nothing in the world she could call her
own, except one single, solitary di
vorced chicken mite," and Sam still
weeps, on the sly, when he ttl i II ks of
the poor man who had lost everything
hut his conscience,

people, the delightful services. We do
not see why Bro. Bussey should not

?Mr. Di: n o vant Xii rows a Little
Salton Mr. Fuller's Coat Tail.
MR. EDITOR: I observ? that Mr?
R. J. Fuller of Batesburg has been
for some weeks giving his views on
the best management of the dif
ferent grades in school teaching.
It seems as if Mr. Fuller is having
all the "fun" to himself ; hence let
me otter a suggestion or two.
People will differ in opinion,
and it is necessary that it should
be so. because variety is the life
of society. 1 beg to suggest that
no fourth render ever be used in
school. Why not take up the
study of history in its stead, and
thereby kill two birds with one
stone? After the pupil bas read
throu??h the third reader he or she
is supposed to be able to read very
well, and then the teacher needs
to begin storing the pupil's mind
with knowledge, while, at the same
time, learning to read is going on.
Do not use a text book which
would be so difficult to read as to
deprive the pupil of the proper ap
preciation of the subject treated,
and I feel safe in saying he would
learn to read faster, appreciate
more, and have his mind develop
ed to a higher degree. Time is the
most valuable property one can
possess in this short lile, and we
must take this into consideration
in our schools where it is more pre
cious than anywhere else.
Again, I beg to differ from Mr.
Fuller on the subject of teaching
language. My observation has
been that the best way to learn
any art is through its correlative
science. Some may say, "learn
your art by practice, or learn io do
by doing." But how much could
a man learn in a lifetime, if he had
to do over and ever everything he
learned? Now the use of our lan
guage is an art, and English gram
mar is its correlative science;
therefore the conclusion is, that
the best way to leam the ari of
using our language is lb rough the
study of English grammar. I have
not S..C11 Tarbell's Language Les

about the same way as some 1 have

dead lift to the memory and clog
the child's mind with a quantity
of indigestible menial food. Give
the child mental indigestion, and
you do for the mind what physical
indigestion does for the body. The
child eau not memorize enough
correct English sentences to serve
his purpose. If Mr. Tarbell intro
duces, in a mild form, the subject
of grammar, and gives the child
some reason why he should use
one expression instead of another,
the work may serv J the purpose,
but if no reason is given the mem
ory is overtaxed, and the child be
comes disgusted. I agree with Mr.
Fuller that the memory is one of
the first faculties to develop-and
a good memory is desirable-but
the reason, that faculty of the hu
man mind which differentiates it
from all oth< r creation, should
n- ver be subordinated to the mem
ory. As early as possible the child
should be taught the reason of
things, and then be interrogated
concerning the faith that is in
Finally, I ?lo not believe stand
ard literature should be taught as
early as Mr. Fuller suggested.
What good does Mr. Fuller hope
for the child to get from this Blady
in the fourth grade? What end
does lie hope to attain? Does he
mean for the child to?r*?ad it mere
ly for an historical enjoyment? If
so, why not use any simple story,
whether it be in standard litera
ture, a newspaper, or anything
else? To stud}' standard literature
successfully require? more accom
plishments then one might think
of at first thought; certainly more
than the child has at the age and
mental development, that Mr. Ful
ler would have him begin.
I have been under the in pres
sion that one studied the works of
a literary author for I he purpose
nf absorbing to some degree his
style and enjoying the dexterity
with which he u-es our language.
We must try to put ourselves in
the same state of mind with the
author and see things a*: he saw
tin-in. We must be able to define
the words he uses and see tn? rela
tion between the words. What does
?,he child in the fourth grade com-!
prehend about style when the
wisest man in the land cannot
define it. At least one must know
English grammar and have some
knowledge of rhetoric before he
eau get much more from literatu-e
than a mere historical story.

Straightforward and from the
Shoulder as Usual.
To THE VoTKits OK EDOEFIELD :
Numerous friends in different por
tions of the County have nominated
me for the constitutional Convention,
without any agency of mine. In de
ference to their kind wishes I write
to sav thal, while I am nota candidate,
and have not electioneered for the of
fice, and shall not lie able to canvass
for it, if the people of Edgelield think
proper to elect me, 1 will cheerfully
serve them to the best of my ability.
As many people seem very much
alarmed about white supremacy, 1
will remark that it is uot in the slight
est danger, because every decent white
man favors it. 1 will also observe that
a larger homestead exemption for the
family, and a constitutional school
tax to educate the children of tbe fam
ily; as well as smaller counties and
much more township home rule, to
gether with a county court to try mis
demeanors should be provided for in
the Constitution. But as I cannot
now enumerate all the important fea
tures which, in my judgment,ought to
be embodied in fhe fundamental law,
1 will merely add that at various times
during the last forty years the people
of Edgetield have intrusted me with
many high commissions and are fa
miliar with my record asa public ser
vant, and my character as a man. I
hope they have not lost confidence in
my capacity or integrity to represent
the best interests of the State as 1 see
