ID this county of last year's cotton
was sold on Saturday last to the
mill by a colored man who resides
near Johnston. It " weighed 490]

of cotton weighing less than 500

farmers, however, are not BO much

A Sylvan Retreat
It was the writer's pleasure a J

la. The home is almost enveloped
iu beautiful evergreens, shrubbery
and vines of many different, varie
ties. Aud the long piazza is a
veritable bower of lovely hothoui
plants-and other flowers in full
bloom. Despite the intense heat
and long drought the magic hand
of Mrs. David Strother, who is a
great lover of flowerB, bas made

by its hospitality.

The Law Department of the
aSouth Carolina College.
In addition to the regular lectures by
the professors of law of the South Car
olina College, the trustees and faculty
are pleased to be able to announce for
the coming session a very attractive
series of lectures to be contributed by
some of the leading members of the
Bench and Bar of South Carolina.
Among those who have consented to
deliver one or more lectures to the law
classes of the College are: Hon. Charlea
H. Simonton, U. S. Circuit Judge; Hon.
William H. Brawley, U. S. District
Judge; Hon. Y. J. Pope, Chief Justice
of South Carolina; Hon. C. A. Woods,
Associate Justice; Hon. Eugene B.
Gary, Associate Justice; Hon. Edward
McCrady. Hon. J. C. Sheppard, Hon.
G. Duncan Bellinger, Hon. S. J. Simp
son, Hon. J. P. Carey, and Hon. Andrew
The trustees ano faculty feel that in
securing the avsUtance of these dis
tinguished judges and lawyers they
have accomplished something that will
prove of the-greatest benefit to those
taking the "law course in the South
Carolina College. ; The number of those
enrolled in the law department during
the last two years-has been.the largest
in the history of the college, and the
hope is entertained that the prospect
of these additional lectures, may still
further increase the growing number
of law students. .
The great value of the training af
forded by schools of law has been too
thoroughly demonstrated to render
necessary any arguments in their sup
port. The day of preparation for the
bar by solitary study in a lawyer's
office has practically passed. Everyone
familiar with the working of a law
school must have been impressed with
the increased interest and zeal that re
sult from the mere association of young
men who have come together for the
common purpose of studying law. The
daily discussions of questions of law,
not only with the professors, but also
with each other, beget an enthusiasm
for the law which possibly, in some in
stances, could never have been acquired
The advantage of attending a profes
sional school in the State in which a
man is to practice his profession is in
no case more obvious than in that of a
lawyer. Besides the familiarity gained
with the decisions and statute iaw of
thc State, the fi iendships that he forms
at such a school add very materially to
his future usefulness as a citizen. The
career of lawyers as a class ls more apt
to be of a public nature than that of
those engaged in anv other profession
oe business. Not only are all of the
judges of the State drawn from the bar,
but the occupants of the legislative and
executive offices are also drawn very
largely from the same source. As so
many of the members of the legal pro
fession are naturally destined to public
careers, it is of no little importance
that the young men who have decided
to become lawyers should come into
close touch with other young men of
their own State who have chosen th?
' The most lasting friendships are not
infrequently formed during the part of
a man's life that is usually devoted to
preparation for the bar; and it is un
fortunate if this period should be spent
in a State other than that in which he
is to live. Several years spent at a pro
fession school in another State some
times find the student so completely cut
of toueh with the young men of his
own State that when Ue returns to
practice his profession he finds himself
laboring under a serious disadvantage,
which in some instances is never over
. A law school, however, should be
