THE TEACHERS' INSTITUTE
As One ol' Our Negro Teachers
Mit. EDITOR : The Teachers' In
stitute for the white people is in
session at this place. There was
an unusually large attendance.
The teachers seemingly are very
much interested, not only the,
teachers but the community at
lerge, BO much so that all see and
know for a truth that the mode or
manner of which the Institute i?
managed by our efficient school
commissioner Mr. A. R. Nichol
son and our county board of edu
cation, certainly tends to be pro
ductive of much good. I had the
delightful pleasure on last even
ing of hearing Prof. Cromer, of the
State University, deliver a very in
teresting address on the intellec
tual and scientific progress of the
American people. He said we had
not a parallel in the annals of
history. He very forcibly impress
ed the teachers with this all im
portant "idea" or fact, that not
withstanding our progress, intel-1
lectually and scientifically, unless
founded upon ethical and reli
gious principles, with a strong re
gard for "personality" our mate
rial progress will ever tend down
Mr. Locke in his essay on the
human understanding has well
said:' "The personality of au in
telligent being extends itself be
yond present existence lo what is
past only by consciousness." Could
all of the American people see it
in this light, and fedi it so, our]
material progress would tend up
ward, and as the grey light of the]
dawning of the 20th century ap
pears in the eastern sky every one
of us-men of the north and men
of the south would be ready for
the coming day. The men of the
north doubtless have come nearest
to this much desired position
where the/ can realize the fact
that their material progress is
tending upward, but the men of
the south, heaven pardon their
blindness, there has been so much
smoke of powder and other things
that they could not always see
their way, honce we can but con
gratulate ourselves upon the pro
gress we have made in the direc
tion in question. Let us drop mere
mechanical devices in the solution
of many difficult and complicated
questions which will come before
us as educators of the youth of the
country, and adopt suitable meth
ods based upon principles that are
eternally right, and this dear old
south landor ours will become an
inheritance of which we shall all
be proud, and that we can hand
down to our posterity with much
grace and without stint.

omnibus tickets, and au earnest

Just as Thc Headlight is going
to press Hon. L, E. Farley states
that, after consulting the- county
chairman and other member of the
committee, they had decided to
permit candidates to have their
own ticke'ts printed, and that they
would be counted when voted.
We are glad of this, for our
readers are entirely satisfied with
the present plan of holding primary
elections, and would rebel against
any Omnibus ticket. It would
open too broad a field for getting
in ring candidates. Such sharp
political methods will work on

IRBY IN A FIGHT.
The Ex-Senator Tackled " by a
Constable, who Dr^ws a Pistol.
Laurens, S. C., July 22.-Before
court convened this morning, Will
CraAvford, a dispensary constable,
went into the clerk of court's office
where Col. J. L. M. Irby was
sitting and and charged Col. Irby
wi. i having treated him in an
ungentlemanly fashion in his
speech defending a white man
named Brown, tried for dispensary
violation yesterday. Crawford
had been a witness in the case and
Colonel Irby had employed lan
guage uncomplimentary to some of
the constables. Irby told Crawford
that he had a right to criticise him
officially, and to go on off that he.
wanted no difficulty with him.
After some words the two men
hitched but were separated, neither
having suffered substantial injury.
A nephew of Col. Irby assisted in
separating the combatants, and it
?estated that the constable, in the
belief that this young man was
taking a hand drew a pistol but
made no attempt to use it.

Tu the Editor of the Augusta Her
ald-Sir: One of tho candidates
i for Stale Superintendent ?of Edu
cation iu South Carolina is John
J. McMahaD, of Columbia. Mr.
McMahan is a young man, perhaps
not 35 years old, but he has had a
.^reat deal of experience. He is a j
graduate of the South Carolina
college, has held the position of
assistant professor of English in
that iustitutiou for a number of
years, was.a prominent member of
the constitutional convention, is
an able and conscientious lawyer,
a brave, fairminded, intelligent
man, o? whom all South Caroli
nians may well fee] proud.
In ihe constitutional conven
tion, Mr. McMahan advocated a
forestry commission, whose duty
it would have been to plant trees
along the highways and to prevent
the state from being denuded of
its forests. His course was indi
cative of great scientific research
for it is a well known fact that
nea.*/al] scientists believe that,
as the leaves of the trees liberate
azone and in that way purify the
atmosphere, the earth would prob
ably become uninhabitable if the
forests should be totally de
Mr. McMahan's advocacy of a
marriage commission subjected
him to some criticism, but in that
be was in line with the leading
scientists aud humanitarians of
the age. - Such a law would pre
vent the maniage of persons whose
blood is tainted with scrofula or
syphillis or any other disease that
would injuriously affect their off
spring. Some of the hading
countries of the civilized world
have established a marriage com
mission, and so beneficial are its
n.'sults that its abolition would
not be for a moment considered.
If only persons of puro blood were
allowed to marry, the race would
be healthier, stronger, and more
of us would possess sana mens ?D
As a lawyer Mr. McMahan has
never neglected on opportunity te
befriend tho poor and distressed.
About a year ago, au operative in
the L-cotton mill, on account
of some disagreement, decided to
quit his employment. Having
decided to remove, he placed his.
scant furniture and houseoold
goods in the depot for shipment.
The mill people not only refused
to pay him what wages were due,
but also seized his furniture m the
depot and held it on the belief that
'.their former employe was guilty
'of a breach of contract. I do not
doubt that they belioved in the
honesty of their intention, and it
i is not desired to cast any reflection
upon'them. It was simply an
! error of judgment. The man was
poor and friendless. No lawyer in
lin town would tako his case}
especially a3 he had no money with
which to pay hie fee. He then
went to Columbia and consulted
John J. McMahan. This brainy
and big-hearted young lawyer
[Unhesitatingly accepted his case,
although the fee was contingent
and the expense of bringing suit
considerable. In accepting the
case, he did not ask, is it popular ?
The question uppermost in his
I mind was, is it right? And having
decided , that question in the
I affirmative, he set to work, and, by
his learning and eloquence, he
secured a verdict in favor of his
client, who was a warde i con*

Cotton Seen i/ulls and Meal.
The director of the Texas Ex
periment Station is credited with
the following :
I "I believe there are two agencies
at work causing the death of live
stock when fod cotton seed and its
products continuously. The first
of these is the active poisonous
principle, and the second cause is
found in the excessive . fattening
laud concentrated composition of
the feeds used. The composition
of cotton seed hulls and meal
indicates clearly that these two
food stuffs do not contain all of
the elements necessary to keep
up the complex animal system.
They are too heating and too
fattening in their constituents,
and their tendency is to induce a
fevered condition of the digestive
organs and weaken the entire
constitution. This weakened
condition, combined with active
poisonous priuc'ples, which have
been inactive until now, causes
"A long acquaintance with cot
ton seed meal as a cow food, fed
when no hulls were used, proves to
me that the cotton seed meal,' if
long continued, will derange the
digestive system of milk cows and
show a general tendency to abor
tion in the herd. This has been
the experience of some other dairy
men of the South who have fed
large quantities of cotton seed
meal in connection with a hay41
