secretary bat resigned in 1908. Last
year he returned to Washington and
/ took his present position with his
father's committe.-The State.
The iriai. 'a correspondent sent il ..
following dispatch after interview
inj? Senator Tillman at his' Wash
. ington home:
"Senator Tillman when seep to
night and informed of the proposed
suit against him and his son for the
possession of his grandchildren was
not surprised. Ile did not seem tc
be disturbed about it. The twc
little girls, Douschka and Sarai
Stark, were playing about hui
- when the reporters visited him. H
talked freely about th? case, taking
care to send the two children ont of
the room to play.
"Concerning the cause and cir
cumstances of the affair he said t
"My son and his wife have been
twice separated and are now'living
apart. She ' is in South Carolina.
They disagreed last February- but
later were reconciled and at ray sug
gestion went West intending to re
main. A few weeks'agovffiey again
disagreed. Mrs. Tillman left her
apartments here in Washington and
after three days he took these
little girls to my wife, who was
then in Washington.. They went
with her to our home in South Car
"Finding that hiB wife showea
no inclination to return to him, my
son deeded the children to .ne. Un
der the laws of South Carolina this
may be done by a father for the
good of his children, or by the wife
in case the father is not living. That
is why they are now with me. .
"They are two of the* brightest
little girls I have ever seen, and my
sole interest in the matter if. to have
them properly cared for and guard
ed. Mrs'. B. R. Tillman, Jr., has
been told by eminent counsel that
she cannot recover tne children."
Senator and Mrs. Tillman, his
two daughters and the two grand
children live in an apartment in the
Belfour. When the young people
had their separation for tho second
time last'December, Mrs. Tillman,
wife of the senator, was at the Nor
mandie. Young B. R. Tillman took
the children there and th,?y were
taken to Trenton, being brought
here again since."

"if I could only get to the farm
ers of York county," said a well
known magistrate in The 'Enquirer
office on Wednesday , "I would like
to urge every one of them to start
out this year'with the intention of
having all contracts they make with
laborers or other people, in writing.
"While it is a fae* thai the land
lord has a statutoiy lien for rent and
supplies, the statute does not at temp
to define the numerous little details
that may enter into such a contract
and it is better to have all this spec
"It is a good idea also to have
paper contracts as between employ
ing farmers and laborers. Such a
contract properly drawn with full
specifications very often serves to
settle disputes and disagreements
that might otherwise prove more or
less troublesome. It is cheaper to
have them than it is to pay the costs
of litigation that often develops out
of their absence.

:i: my way by the friends of Mr.
. m ison on tho bo?r? of truans.
Prof; Zuirtin was elected assistant
professor of methematics before T
became president of the college.
"In 1006 I recommended to the
board the election of: the station staff.
My l?st contained a gentleman who
???vived 15 years' t.uiningin
..?ideal experiments and was fa
. Ii.tr with difficult i Btation re
. -arches. A nephew of a member
?f the board was nominated by Mr.
impson and waa elected in a fevr
(minutes afterwards!..' This nephew
j was but recently graduated from
?Clemson and was;Vfrithout experi
j ence concerning station experiments.
He was a bright young man, "but
! could not in any particular compare
vith the gentleman whom I'had
lominated, in aga,Experience and
ducat i on al advantages.
"In my effort?1 to control my
stenographer, who is; a niece, of a.
?rustee, 11? as ? greatly emharrapsed_
|>y the board stepping in and siding
.vith her in her insubordination. I
found her in the office whenTac
c?pted thc presidency:.in 1903. She!
has been given leave- bf absence
tntil the new president shall be
..1 et-ted, and the inference is .that
she will be returned foto the presi
dent's office with a "salary increased
from $650 to $900.. .Because pf this
action of the board last September
1 have been unable to secure a com
petent assistas^ who; will consent to
take the position with the uncer
tainty hanging over itv I have ap
pointed eight young rajen since last
September, but all have declined
after looking into the situation. I
have called the attention of the
board to this unfortunate condition,
but they have declined to reconsider
their determination 1 to have the
niece returned to -the president's
office after I retire." ?

Again at Head of School Im
It gives us very great; pleasure to
announce, that Mrs. ni ?ry T. Nance
Spaniel has again accepted the presi
?n cy of the School Improvement
Association, and consequently will
resume her work among thc rural
schools of the state. The improved
condition of the public 'schools in
the counties visited by ber, stand as
a lasting monument to this Christian -'
educator. ..'-! .'.
She did some excellent work in.
portions of Edgefield county a.year
ago, and we hope the day ia not far
distant when she can find time io
visit all of the schools in tin county
The following -endorsement"pf
Mrs.. Daniel's work by. "A Kural,
Teacher" was published in a recent
issue of The State: ' 'i "
"rhe people that sat in darkness
saw a great light." Into the lives
bf our *bold peasantry; our conn-,
try's pi ide" has-shone ; a great edu
cational light, one thatJbas reflected
and will continue to reflect great
credit upon the bearer? Mrs/ Mary
T. Nance Daniel. Nothing ia more
convincing, as to what Mrs., Daniel
has done, than to see the living, evi
dence of what she has dope in the
rural districts of our a t?te ?as I have
seen it and have heard i| ?rom son a
of those that she has been the means
of elevating to a much h'igber plane.
She has taught them ??t they must
educate the head, hand? and heart,
which they have gone >$boat doing
since her message to them. But,
friends of mankind, ?there is an ap
palling fact facing us, and it is thia:
there are many districts in our
State in which Mrs. Daniel has nev
er been and for a time it seemed as
though she would never reach them,
but, thank heaven for the blessing
of having her again at the helm of
this very important part of our ed
ucational work, and now I appeal to
those that are in a position .to do so
to extend their hearty cooperation
to Mrs. Daniel in order that ehe"
may be able to do her vary best
