A FIRST CU
Anderson U rged to 1
Edite Andereon Intelligencer :
Permit ',oe who has ) recently enjoyed
the delightful social life of your
channing City, one who was formerly
a school girl from a sister State at the,
Johnson University, then in tue zen
ithof its excellence, usefulness and
intellectual influence, spaoe in your
columns for some reflections on the
past and present, suggested by old
memories and new conditions.
Anderson, with its elegant resi
dences, where lavish, entertainment
aDd warm hospitality reign, where the
big-hearted people seem never weary
of doing graceful acts of kindness, is
a most attractive town, with very
mach tc commend it. Yet, notwith
standing its lovely social life and sur
prising industrial and . commercial
vigor, tbera seemed something lack
Every one will agree that among
the first, foremost and most urgent
considerations of civilized communi
ties should be the founding of educa
tional facilities. All recognize this to
be a prime necessity of good citizen
ship, to afford proper training for her
future lawmakers, mothers, counsel
lors, business men, and others in every
walk of life. Fine institutions of
learning for both sexes are admitted
the world over to be the most impor
tant factors in the true growth and
development of a country. They
stimulate mental effort and brain
power, not only in the students, but
ia the masses surrounding. They
quicken the spirit of a place and pre
vent a settling down into dullness, or
mere mechanical mts and moneymak
ing. They attract visitors, give an
impetus to trade, and induoe an inflow
of residents for the purpose of educat
ing their children, and for higher so
cial advantages. They give a high
tone to society, arouse a spirit of im
provement and of beautifying both
public and private grounds. In a
word, their beneficial effects are felt
in a thousand ways.
Now, the bright, young City of
Anderson, with her great achieve
ments on many lines, is one of which
the State may well be proud. It is
progressive in business methods,
prosperous, promising and thorpughly
wide awake as regards her numerous
valuable industries and many ' large
and flourishing enterprises. But it
muBt be said, that, proportionately,
her educational field is limited. . Her
youths and maidens who aro hnotoning
forward to take the places of their
elders iu the arena of life, are not,
provided in their native City with the
opportunity for advanced culture and
broad mental expansion, for that
' character building" nhich ia the re?
suit of faithful study under wise in
structors in well equipped institutions
of "higher learning."
True, you have a splendid grtded
school, under the '?h'to management of
avery competent and efficient princi
pal, with superior co-workers, whieh
is accounted one of the finest and fore
most of its class. But tho limitations
of the sy & te m do not admit of ? high
standard. More ver many parents are
averse to sending their children, es
pecially lime girls, to a publio sohool.
To meet such exigency is the province
af the "private sohool." But when
your publio and private schools have
?ken their pupils through all their
rrades of instruction, what then ?
Those of the wealthier o?ase m'ay be
*aiaway to colleges and boarding
ichools, whieh entails much expense
nd long abscnoe from parental care ;
rhile others leas fortunate financially,
oust leave sohool altogether. These,
mless exceptionally endowed with
Dental force, are likely to remain
'narrow" and common place to the
nd of their days. Is it not ? pity to
eave them stranded just as they have
watered the rudiments and gotten
eady for loftier flights? During my
?cent visit to Anderson it was learn
d that the University buildingo, long
losed and idle, were for sale, and it
Incurred to me that this being true, it
hould prove a strong incentive to the
[ore thoughtful and provident of your
itizens, to seoure thia valuable pro
I ?rty ?nd convert it into a Female
jMlege of the best y JG and scope,
obiased by creed, untrammeled by
on-essential mles, with an adequate
oard of trustees, competen ?eaohere,
?lied in modern methods, and right
?anagement, patronage would not on
come from Anderson and its envir
oments, but would be largely drawn
m beyond her borders. No one oan
eny that such movement would be of
tnense gain to your City.
This handsome and substantial aca
demic building has a glorious history,
d many stirring associations cluster
t?nd it and its founders, who labor
*itb 8uoh zeal and noble enthu
**m to establish the Johnson Uni
t8?ty. They and the grand corps
instructors they installed have
Establish, a College for
passed away, bat their memory is
fadeless, and the good work they- in
augurated for the education of tho
daughters of Anderson should be re
newed and continued.
What tone and lustre those men and
women of that day-those devoted j
professors, those blithe and bright
young ladies from far and nea*-, and
the "University" idea itself gave to
the town ! What intellectual vigor
was awakened, what lofty ambitions
were inspired! Nothing in its pre
vious history had ever done so much
to elevate the status of the place and
people as was aocomplished by this
Whoever thinks of Spartanburg
that Con n? e College does not in
stantly project itself in bold relief, as
the most prominent and important
feature of that thriving and progres
sive City ? Gan not Anderson equip
a school so thoroughly and win merit
and fame on a similar basis ?
The Civil War made havoc of many
schools, and Johnson University did
not escape the general disruption.
Teachers and students were necessari
ly disbanded, but the solid structures
of masonry stood the shook, and dur
ing the last years of the oDnfliot had
the honorable distinction of serving
as the Confederate States Treasury.
Is not such historio association a mat
ter of patriotic pride, and dear to our
Daughters of the Confederacy, for
mer pupils of the "University", will
you not rally to the rescue-the re
habilitation of yonr Alma Mater-and
lend the weight of your influence to
ward the reopening of it as a muoh
needed College or "Finishing School"
for young ladies ?
When peace was restored after the
struggle for Southern Rights, the
building was occupied by the late
Professor Ligon, one of the most
thorough and highly esteemed educa
tors that ever taught in the State.
Here he kept for many years a large
and flourishing "mixed" school. The
subject of co-education was rife in
the minds of the people at that time,
and Professor Ligon fully tested the
merits of the plan. But failing health
caused him to retire from his life
work of teaching, and the Patriok
Military Institute was opened in the
same buildings by the late Col. John
B. Patrick, under whose able manage
ment for o number of years- a very
popular and flourishing military school
Was oonducted, whioh waa the pride of
the town,' and whioh was discontinued
only w^n this learned, and wise edu
cator was "gathered to his fathers."
Since bis death sesriy two years ago,
the venerated University buildings
have been*closed, andi the youths of
the Qily have in consequence Buffered
a deplorable loss.
Dees it not behoove ihe citizens of
fair and beautiful Anderson, town
and County, parents of growing fami
lies, the future welfare of whose
daughters must be provided for, to
take advantage of the golden oppor
tunity offered to seoure this hand
some site and historie edifice for the
establishment of an up-to-date, non
sectarian school, where their daugh:
tera may reoeive a liberal education
without being obliged to go from home
to obtain it ? Is there any sound or
tenable reason why Anderson, with
her ability and flattering reputation
for prosperity'and progress, to bo be
hind her neighboring towns in the
matter.of possessing advanced institu
! tiona of mental culture ? Certainly
there exists no laok of means, if all
would take the matter to heart, and
harmoniously work together for the
general weal. XXX.

Facto About Cuba.
From a recent bulletin issued by
the United States geological survey,
entitled, "A Gazetteer of Cuba,"
compiled by Henry Gannett, geogra
pher, the following suggestive faota
regarding the island are taken.
With an acreage of 44,000 square
miles and a population of 1,572,797,
only 3 per sent, of the area of the ie-.
land and only 10 per oent. of the area
in farms was under cultivation. The
most highly cultivated portions of the
island were in Matanzas and Habana
provinces, which lie adjoining in its
western part, while in Puerto Prin
cipe, the large central province, culti
vation was comparatively slight and
the land was used mostly for cattle
ranches. The crops, in the order of
areas cultivated were first, sugar cane,
occupying somewhat less than half of
the cultivated area; next, sweet pota
toes, occupying ll per cent; of the
area; tobacco, 9 percent, and banana?
a triflv less than 9 per cent. Tobacco
and sugar were grown in all the prov
inces. In 1899 there were in Cuba
207 sugar mills, with a daily produc
tion of G1,'_J7 bags.
Light is thrown on the depopulat
ing effect cT war in Cuba by the com
parison of tho census of 1899 with
that of 1877. In the latter year it
was 1,631,687, or 59,000 more than 12
years Inter, in 1899. Allowing for the
probable inorease in the population
between 1887 and 1895, the year io
which the insurrection broke out, the
loss of life as indioated by the two
censuses, may be estimated at nearly
200,000, a IOSB to be attributed to the
war and the accompanying reconcen

Lord Kames, a once famous Scot
tish judge, on his way southward to
Perth from the northorn cirouit, had
to spend the night at Dunkeld. Nest
morning ho made for the ferry across
the Tay, but, missing the road, asked
a passer-by to show him the way.
"With all my heart," said the
stranger. "I see your lordship does
not know me. My name is John Gow.
I had the honor to be tried before
your lordship for sheep stealing."
"Now, I recollect you, John," re
plied the judge. "And how is your
wife? She, too, had the honor to ap
pear before me for receiving the sheep,
knowing them to have been stolen."
"Ah, we were very lucky to get off
for want of evidence, but I am still in
the butchering business."
"Then quoth Lord Kames as he
came in sight of the ferry, "we may
have the honor of meeting again."
