WEDNESDAY, NOV. 26, 1002.
To-morrow will be Thanksgiving
Day. It should not be a day lightly
to be esteemed and lightly observed.
"Whatever of prosperity and happiness
has been enjoyed was made possible
only through thc goodness of God, and
it is the duty of ??ll to number
their mercies, thc delights and joys of
each of which they have tasted and
out of glad hearts give thanks. It
should \>p. a day of genuine, heartfelt
gratitude, expressed in deeds which
point conclusively to sincerity. If
there be any whose lives arc darkcucd
by misfortunes and sorrows to the ex
tent that they are inclined to give
thanks in a manner altogether per
functory and with but little or no
gratitude, it may be suggested io >
them that if, in the face of their sor
rows, they will take the pains to re
call the mercies they have enjoyed
through the past year and through
life, bo their circumstances what they
may, they will find much, very much,
to be thankful for; and if after count
ing their mercies to the point wbcre
they force their appreciation upon tho
heart, they will bestow upon some
worthy object some act of kindness at
the expense of self-denial, their hearts
will be made lighter and lives brighter,
and this Thanksgiving Day may mark
a new era for them in matters both
spiritual and temporal. The expres
sion of gratitude is a duty; simply to
feel grateful is not enough. Some
thing should be done. If nothing can
be given to relieve the wants of tho
unfortunate ones, kind words, en
couraging words, comforting words
can be spoken, and they becomo the
evidences of gratitude. On this
Thanksgiving Day thc mind should be
concentrated upon those things which
lead the soul into communion with its
Creator. To this end thc people
should assemble themselves in their
respective Churches and bow together
in humble, grateful reverence. In
every denomination there are orphan
ages to support, and to contribute to
these furnishes an opportunity to give
evidence of our sincere gratefulness.

It seems that there is too much
prosperity in the country. The rail
roads cannot handle the freight de
livered. There is a general complaint
coming up from every section of the
In perusing the weeklies received
from every section of thc State we find
but few foreclosures of mortgages and
the land that has beon sold brought
fairly good prices. This indicates
that those who owe money are cither
liquidating their mortgages or arrang
ing their obligations satisfactorily with
creditors. In spite of high taxes,
short crops and prices the people, gen
eralis, are, as the saying goes, making
both ends meet, consequently they are
happy and hopeful.
The estimate of the wheat crop made
by tho national department of agricul
ture is 027,000,000 bushels as against
748,000,000 last year. That is the low
est estimate mado. The other ex
treme is represented by a Chisago ex
pert who puts the crop of ]'JU2 at 7GU
million bushels against 752 millions in
1901. There has recently been an ad
vance of ten cents on wheat on the
Pacific coast. This is duo to reduced
ocean freight rates and an unusual de
mand from Australia and Siberia.
As the time approaches when the
vote of the negro delegate w?!l cousl
in the Republican national conven
tion, Theodore Roosevelt, candidato
for the uomination of his party for
president becomes more and more
patronizing toward the Southern
blacks. He recently removed Julian
H. Bingham, oolleotor of internal
revenue for Alabama, because he
helped exoludo the negroes from thc
Republican party in that State, and
has appointed a uegro in his plaoe.
It is also reported that he will appoint
a negro to fill tho i teition of collector
of customs in Cbart&tbo.
An old Confederate Soldier in Distress.
Col. Joh? M. Jordan, A. G. nnd chioi

V., hoe been forwarded a letter from
MisB Mary Dell Stuart, ol Hot Springs,
Yavapal County, Arizona, which calle
attention to an old Confederate soldier
who has been living near there, who
was ranking a bare existence in "pack
ing" for the mining camps, and WAH
brought to Hot Springs for treatment.
The physician in charge says he will
never be able to do anything for his
own support, ns ho is in a dreadfully
crippled state, the bones having to be
taken from his leg, the result of a
wound received at Fort Sumter. His
name is Felix Gomez Montenegro, a
member of Nattery II, Fourth South
Carolina Heavy Artillery, Capt. Henry
Farley. His left leg was shattered ut
Sumter and he was in a hospital three
months. After his return to tho bat
tery he was again wounded, in '0:j, in
the hip and shoulder, when he was
sent on a transport to New Orleans.
He is without friends to help him in
any way and cannot work for himself.
j/iss Stuart sent an appeal for aid to
a cousin in Staunton, Va., audit was
forwarded through the proper channel
until it has reached headquarters of
the South Carolina division. These
facts are published in order that the
Confederate organizations in South
Carolina may have an opportunity to

"During the post four years tho en

The enrollment at the close of tho first

ing this year was GO per cent. Upon
this basis tho enrollment during this
year will be 1703 inateadjof 1,512 the pre
vious year. We are very much crowd
ed, but hope to meet the situation by
using temporary quarters. We have
purchased a beautiful lot upon which
we shall erect in the spring of 1903 a
brick house similar to our central
building. This will give us 000 more
seats for white pupils. Cur negro pop
ulation is not large and the building
erected for them last year will serve
for several years. The curriculum of
our schools has not been changed since
the reorganization of tho schools in
1H!J8, except in the broadening of some
of tho courses in the high school, the
courses in Greek and French are now
two years instead of one as at first.
We intend placing laboratories for
physics and chemistry in onr schools
as soon as mom for them can be spared.
Our High School has an enrollment of
150 pupils, and the conree is four years."

No sane man could expect a solid leather Shoe for the price of a worthless
paper sole Shoe ; he could not expect a Flour to bake up like DEAN'S

should be gulled into buying such stuff, if they T oukl only stop to think.
