WALHALLA, 8. ?. I
WBDNKNDAWi APRII. 19 t*H?9.
As the work progresses in layiug tho
'new hexagon block sidewalk on Main
street, the great improvement as to ap
pearance and tho marked convenionco to
the publio are more and moro apparent.
It is a beginning whioh we hope will not
?nd soon, and as rapidly as possible tho
work should bo oxtoudod to parts not
now inoludcd in the contract already
i wai ded. Tho addition to tho value of
property fiontcd bj this handsome pav
ing is more than thc cost of tho work,
and, besides, it shows progress on the
part of tho local authorities as well as
the property owners.
Tho spirit, whioh prompts this and
other improvements cannot bo too
warmly oooimeuded, ano we xeei timt it
is only tho bogiuniug, and that larger
ami hotter things arc yot to como. Let
each citizeu endeavor to soe how much
in tho way of improvement ho can mako,
not just how little eau bc gotten along
with. This is the iii st time an effort has
been mado in tho matter of the town
authorities working in connectiou with
the property owuer. and it has been pro
ductivo of good results. When tho two
work separately for improvomonts each
is hindered by a lack of unity, but when
their forces aro joined the work moves
smoothly and much more is accom
plished. Lot tho work continuo steadily,
and let every citizen and every official
-work without interruption for the im
provement and up-building of Walhalla.
SOMETHING WRONG IN ANDERSON.
Under tho caption, "Beautifying Court
Square," the Anderson Mail hands up to
US those three "pointed" paragraphs:

"A doctor in Moxico deolaros that the

In a speech in Danville, Arkansas, last
week, to a largo gathoring of farmers
and business mon, advocating a r?duc
tion of cotton acreage, Governor Jeffer
son Davis combated the idea that the
organization of farmers with a view to
securing botter prices for cotton was in
violatiou of the now anti-trust law of
Arkansas. If it were held otherwise
by the courts, the Governor declared, he
would pardon all far mors prosecuted and

I week gavo the following advioe to farm
ers: "l'en vi ne hay at $15 a ton-tho low
est (.rico for which it oan now bo pur

hay is greater than the supply and car

Board May Close the Seminary.
Columbia, April 15.-It is likely that
tho board of directors of tbe Columbia
Theological Seminary, at a meeting to be
held lu a few dayB, will order the closing
of tho institution, at least temporarily,
until a thorough canvass of the four
stat cs controlling it eau bo niado to Bee
if the attendance problem can be solved.
This canvass will bo made through the
coming summer and continued, if there
are hopeful sigus. There are less than a
dozon students left ofter the year's crop
of graduates got out, and the attondanoe
question, which has boon steadily grow
ing more serious, has reached a criais.
Many bitter controversies, involving the
inst it nt ion, bave boen waged in tho past
quarter of a century, and .tho result is
that the institution is gotting little or no
patronage from othor States and practi
cally nono from its one State. The acri
monious, though unsuccessful fight made
last summer to remove tho seminary to
Atlanta, reoponed old wounds, and has
addod to the goneral distress.
