The first arch is belief of the

learning he was an atheist, at h
with more learning he stood firm
in'the Christian faith. The fe
great stones upon which thia ar
stand are: 1. God is. 2. Christ
3. The Bible is God's word. .4. j
dividuala and nations that belie
are making greatest progress.
You need not expect to undt
stand everything. Let the Al ra i ?rh
know some things that you don
The second aroh is decision, ?
submission. Train your will to sa
mit to God's will. "An act then
state." The story was told of
young man in a grocery store who
associations were adverse to tl
Christian life, but he made a bra
and said *I will."

Statement From Mr. G.
w?ims Concerning Educa tir
Editor The Advertiser: I no
on your front page of this weel
article from Andrew Simians
very good negro) referring to
matter of educating the negro c
dren. It appears that Andrew thi
the negro children are intiMed
more money, and more educati
The facts are that the negroes
the south get their full prorata
school tax fund, and in hundr
and thousands of cases far mc
And in addition they are ba
ficiaries to the funds donated to
gro schools by some of our not
era philanthropists who have rai
money than brains. Andrew 1
.surely forgotten that the whites ?
blacks started on their finani
journey on well nigh equal footir
m 1866, and if the negroes are i
now able to educate their childi
tile cause is in no wise chargeai
to the white people. The negn
were turned loose in this bro
land with equal chances to wc
and accumulate property of th<
of any other race, and there is ni
at this date no excuse or logic
reason for the negroes of this cot
[try; to beg the white people to ec
cate their children. And if Andn
wer? a student o? the races he cou
?readily understand that educatii
pf the negroes in a general w;
.serve? only to develop the woi
elemeuts within them. While ed
cat|?n of the white race d
yelops the nobh-st and best e
mentis. And therefore all the mom
and all the efforts on the part
the whites to educate the blacl
has resulted in cultivation with
the negro a spirit of relentless ei
vip i ty against the common law at
jibe white man, and such edncathi
irj^berefore the most infernal nu
?eiVce ever perpetrated nr en COP ra
ed rn any country. The loarnt
Booker Washington undertook t
show that education would soh
Ice negro problem, where as a ma
ter of tact the learned Booker
about as dark a horse as ever tro
ted down the pike..
Take the statistics of the negro rac
before and since his freedom, an
note the tremendous increase i
their crime since freedom. Whi
has brought about degradation an
beastly tendency? Nothing is plaii
er than that il is due to his edui-a
ti on which begets within him a
idea that his education should kee
him from work, and in his ??llene*
he becomes an open criminal. Ou
prisons are teeming with educate
negro criminals, and the m ?re yoi
educate the negro the more prc
found is his tendency to commi
crime. There are of course som
exceptions. The negroes who ar
?talf white are sometimes easier o
control, and are more obedient ti
law, these tmitj are due to the whit
man ingredients in their coinposi
The foregoing ?efers to what i
sometimes called "'Book Larnin'"
I believe every negro should havi
training in iield, shop, or other vo
cations of labor, wherein he car
an honest living, and in a way arie
m inner whi h the All-wise banc
made him. And so far as the ne
gr s support, or render aid to om
state or federal government,
the fact* a-e that it costs more t<
prosecute and mai nui ii 11 ? * * negro
criminals than their taxes in ihat
direciion amount to And now,
where is there anv seine or reason
in the act of tax ng the white peo
ple of this county tu educate a mee
the children of which .rn* taught
by their parents lo disobey and
hate the white p ODle. We see this
every day and everywhere among
us. No sensible man will neny it.
If this countrv was owned and con
trolled by the negro race in less
than fifty years caruihalism would
be the order, justas it is in tbe land
of darkest Africa.
And now, in the face of all the
monev spent for the negro educa
tion, all the training, encourage
ment and good examples set before
the negro race hy the whites, there
is a decided and growing tendency
on their pirt, to become more and
.more degraded and beastly. There
is not a white man's home in the
whole country safe from their fiend
ish and hellish crime. Hemp
around their necks swinging from
telegraph poles offers no restraint.
Tis no warning to the lusty devils.
What the negroes really need is not
so much book or theoretical edaca
tion as it is the need of good and
wholesome duty, suited to his
muscle, and means whereby he can
be compeled to perform that duty.
Give bira food, raiment and shel
ter, that he may be happy around
his hearth-stone in bis humble
home. He must ever be restrained
from attaining positions he is not
designed to fill and reaping the
harvest he refused to sow. Tbe
negroes haye built no railroads nor
'steam boats, they have opened no
j mines, t hey own and operate no banks
[or manufacturing ph nts, they have
built no churches or schools or oth
er publie institutions with their
own money. The white people have
; always contributed the maj >r part
to their institutions and main tai li
And now, as the relative condi
tions stand to-dav what does the
Whites owe the Blacks?
Nothing, nothing, nothing.

Red Cross Seal Commission of
Columbia, S. C , Nov. 10.-The
work of the Red Cross Seal Com
mission is prospering. A report
from the central ofiSee in Columbia
states that fifty agents in all parts
of the State have signified Un
willingness to assist in distributing
tho Christmas Seals in their coin
rnunities. This is the result of only
one month's work, and the commit
tee feels much encouraged at the
sympathetic co-operation shown on
all aides. During November it in
expected that over fifty more agent
will be secured, thus guaranteeing
that in practically every important
town and city in South Carolina
the tight against Tuberculosis will
be waged. Everywhere people are
awakening to the fact that Tu bereu
loais ia a preventable disease, and
can hence be stamped out by wise I
and energetic preventative measures,
it ia a useless sacrifice to allow up
wards of 2000 people to die every
year when this great drain upon the
S ale's resouicea and citizenship
could be almost entirely stopped.
Early plana for au energetic sell
ing and publicity campaign have
already been mids in Chat leaton,
Columbia, Spartanburg, and Or
angeburg. Large supplies of Christ
mas Seals and advertising matter
have been shipped to these cities.
The office in Columbia is now en
gaged in sending material to the
oihtr towna where agenta have been
secured, both Georgia and Nonli
Carolina are putting on a state wide
aale nf the Seals, and it ia hoped
that South Carolina wiil make a
favorable showing iu thia matter
with her sister s: atea.

VISITED COUNTY FAIR.
County Demonstration Agent
P. N. Lott Writes Interest

The Edgefield county fair is over
and it is now a thing of the past,
yet there are certain features of this
gala occasion that will remain fresh
in the minds of some for quite a
It bas been the privilege of the
writer to mix with representative
people fi oin every county in the
state and from other states and ?re
fail to find a superior people from
any quarter. I am a citizen'of South
Carolina and proud of the fact that
I am. I was born in Edgefield ?oun- ,
ty and have no apologies for it, in
fact the older I get and che longer
I live the prouder I am that I am
a South Carolinian and that my
citizenship is cast among the people
of Edgefield county. However with
all my ecstany I am somewhat
crest-fallen over the lack of interest
of some of our people when it comes
to contributing lo the success of an
enterprise as important as a public
exhibition of the progress of the i
county. The quality of the exhibits
were of high type equal to the best
and better than many we have seen
at county and state fairs bot the
quantity-ah me! How we regret
that we have so few like Sir Isaao J
Newton L. Broadwater, president^
Jas. R. Can tel ou, Mr. and Mrs.
Andrew C. Tonce, Mr. and Mrs.
Cornelius A. Long, Mr. and Mrs.
John R. Tompkins, Dr. R. A.
Marsh, Rev. R. G. Sh an non h o use
and a few others that had exhibits
whose names we were not. ab e to
obtain. If we could have had .a-hajf_ .
do?en^?xl?rbits ' such as Mr.' Broad--'?;r
water s,riot better, for we thint the
proprietor of Sunny Side farm and
bis faithful partner had a very
creditable exhibit, the fair would
have been complete. We regret this
lack of interest and hope another
year that more interest will be tak
en. We h we the people and we
have the stuff. Let us get busy and
show up what we have, not that we
expect to make mouey out of it but
is a manifestation of our pride as
citizens of one of the best counties
in the 6t.ue.
The floral parade was grand.
Several of the floats showed the ar
tist hand and made pictures upon
?ur mind that will linger. The Ad
vertiser's ship was symbolic of safe
iransportaiion of the welfare and
moral uplift of "tier people for near
Iv a hundred years. Several other
floats were very pretty but as we
did not understand their significance
we are not competent to comment.
Our visit to the lair waB an occa
-ion fraught with ranch pleasure.
We met relatives, friends and ac
quaintances that make you love the
earth and the inhabitants thereof.
Wc acknowledge the many courte
sies shown us by those in charge of
different departments, especially
the dining hall. Dr. Jeffries and
Mrs. B. E. Nicholson looked after
us with much tenderness. In closing
we will put you Sir Isaac Newton
Broadwater, on notice that we will
expect yon to take charge of our
slate exhibit next year, D. V.
