COLONEL F. N. K. BAILEY, Superintendent
A MILITARY INSTITUTION
with the experience and prestige of
The Institute has splendid new
brick buildings with modern equip
ment-equal, if not superior, to any
boys' school in the South-includ
ing steam heat, improved electric
lights, ample toilet facilities and
shower baths and hot and cold run
ning water in every room. The lo
cation is beautiful, being an elevated
tract of ten acres just inside the
city limits and overlooking the city
and surrounding country. The
campus and drill grounds are ex
ceptionally fine and well adapted to
the uses of the school.
The arrangement of the buildings,
the courses of study, and the plan
of the work are the outgrowth of
3ears of successful experience of
The constant aim has been the
health, comfort, training, and in
struction of boys and young men.
The school produces manly men
physically, mentally, morally, and
spiritually. "We believe that the

civilization is an educated Chris
The personnel of the Faculty de
termines the quality of a school.
There must be strong, manly, Chris

and successful experience in man
aging and teaching boys. We be

Faculty of Bailey Military Institute
which is composed of ten compe
We make a careful study of
every cadet's health, disposition,
character, tendencies, and then ap
ply the methods that will develop
him along the most desirable lines.
The development of the student is
followed throughout his course in
the Institute. He is trained and
taught as a son in an environment
that is conducive to the most desir
able results, and free from distract
ing and neutralizing influences.
The Superintendent, his family,
two other members of the Faculty
and their families, and five unmar

The school is selected, the cadets
being limited to the number that
may receive individually the care of
the Faculty aud officers.
Education has been defined as:
"A debt due from parent to child."
Of course you intend to pay this
debt. The only point that is worry
ing you is the medium to be used.
Let us advise you here, for wc have
loved and taught and trained many
boys. You want your boy to grow
into a strong, manly man, a man
trained to overcome obstacles, and
to make the most of the talents en
trusted to him. We know this to
be your wish; and we have devel
oped a system of training that, un
der normal conditions, guarantees
the fulfilment of your desire. This
system has as its foundation the
military system in use at West
Point. On this foundation has been
erected, by means of many years'
experience with Southern boys, a
system which makes for success in
the after life of your boy.
Discipline is the cornerstone of
the structure. There are, we know,
varying ideas of "discipline." The
word as we ust it means simply
THE HABIT OF OBEDIENCE
to constituted authority- Not mere
ly obedience but the cheerful and
unquestioning HABIT of obedience.
This discipline when backed by the
military spirit which permeates our
every department accomplishes al
most miracles. And over and above
all, we assure you that you will not
have to DRIVE your boy. A few
month with us will make him want
The Military Dep't
The military feature is invaluable
in the training of boys. It teaches
readiness, promptness, obedience,
self-control. It induces erectness
of body, correct carriage, neatness,
self-respect. This is its object, and
The Military Department of the
school is conducted as nearly as
possible after the methods in use at
West Point, without partaking of
their more rigid and unsympathetic
features. There are dailv drills,
frequent inspections, parades, and
all duties and ceremonies that go to
make up the routine work of a mili
tary post. .
During the whole of the year the
quarters of the cadets are under
special and frequent inspection
each day, and there is weekly a full
dress inspection, at which time both
the (planers of the cadets and the
cadets themselves are carefully in
spected by the Commandant, Maj.
W. D. Workman. At the frequent
formations each day the clothing,
shoes, et?.*., of the cadets are in
spected, so that it is next to impos
sible for a cadet to present other
than c neat personal appearance.'
The Institute is recognized by
United States Government and is
supplied by the- War Department
with full Military Equipment simi
lar to that issued to the best Military
Colleges and Schools of the South.
Special recognition by the War De
partment is shown by the detail of
an "Active Officer" of the Regular
Army, Lieutenant Geo. C. Bowen,
20tb Infantry U. S. A.
No better location for a school
boy could be found than the city
ol Greenwood. The city is noted
for its healthfulness. It is remark
ably free from contaminating influ
ences. It has never licensed the
sale of intoxicants, and the laws
arc enforced. It has many large
ch arches and able preachers. It
has eminent physicians and special
ists. It has unsurpassed railroad
connections. The people are noted
for the^r high moral, social and
spiritual tone, and they possess en
terprise and enthusiasm for high
ideals that are contagions.
The expenses are moderate.
We invite your consideration of
th?; merits of the school.
The enrollment during the session
just closed was 192 cadets, the
largest in the history of the institu
tion Fifty-one others who were
late in forwarding their applications
were unable to be entered, and were
compelled to go elsewhere.
If you contemplate patronizing
the Bailey Military Institute, it is
important that application b^ made
at as early a date as practicable.
The twenty-fourth session will be

Revival at Trenton.
I have never seen Trenton so
stirred for a better life. Many
church members have been revived
and three joined the Methodist
church by profession: W. VV. Mil

and one by certificate, J. A. Clarke.
Rev. T. G. Herbert was a great
blessing to the community.
J. R. Walker.
The Adams building, to which an
addition has just been made is a de
cided ornament to the public square.
It is a great pity that the idea of
making the commercial buildings
artistic and attractive did not take
hold of Edgefield several decades
ago. Had that been the case, instead
of the plain red brick buildings, the
public square would now be sur
rounded by ornamental structures.
There is something worse than war
notwithstanding Sherman's defini

three carbuncles at one time. That

fort, but doubtless some readers of
The Advertiser will think it ?3 a
fine thing when an editor reaches a
state in which he can't lie. Owing
to our painful indisposition we
trust thal the readers will overlook
the shortcomings of this issue. Stop
worrying abc ut the European war
and seven cents cotton and thank
the Lord that it is as well with you
as it is.
As a preparition for war or
peace, life or death, time or eterni
ty, let us all lay aside one hour, at
teast, in each day and take ourselves,
our family and our country apon
our hearts, meet at the Methodist
church and hear some gospel
preaching by brother Herbert. Of
coni>e if we cannot go because it is
not "my church" then don't go, be
cause such a soul is too small io
save. Let us all get calm, forget
our troubles and get together. This
is a fine time to get our young peo
ple serious and the old ones soft. If
yon fall in line now you will enjoy*
these services. E. C. ii. ?
