Northern writers and politicians
have for some time past filled much
space in print in attacking ohild labor
in tho South. As a social problem,
the South will in timo settle it satis
factorily. But tho feature of thia sud
den moral upheavel up North has net
oomc from any sympathy entertained
for the white children of the South,
but from the fact that the Southern
cotton mill industry is injuring the
profit making of the Northern mill in
dustry. It is simply a question of ox
goring and not humanity: that is the
cause of this excessive interest in the
children of the South.

Dr. Tom Humphreys, of Lincoln j
County, Georgia, wab on a short visit j
to relatives in this city a few days ago.
Ho lett here Monday to visit his broth
er, Samuels. Humphreys, at Donalds,
and will go from there to his home.
Dr. Humphreys ?H a brother to the late
C?en. W. VV. Humphreys anda native
of this county. He left hereabout
forty yenrs ago. His visit recalls n
period in tho history of Anderson
County when those who aro now the
elders in our city and county were
school boys. Near Evergreen, in Sa
vannah Township, .n 10-?7, Kev. Wil
liam Harris taught school. Among
the pupils were Dr. Tom Humphreys,
Samuel Humphreys. Jr., Kev. Julius
Karie, Dr. James Earle, Elias Earle,
John Cunningham, Samuel dunning
ham, Thomas Cunningham, William
and Henry Anderson and Frank Ver
non, of Spartanburg, P. K., Frank and
John Jnmes Norris and a number of
others. That eminent Presbyterian
divine, Rev. David Humphreys, near
whose home the school was located,
accommodated some of the students
with board, and tho influence of his
saintly life carried some of them into
tho ministry and aided in beautifying
the lives of others. Time has swept
away most of these students at the
Harris school, but Homo remain, and j
this will doubtless cause them to recall
tho days when aspirations and hopes in
this lifo were brightest.
