NOW DOWN, BUT UP.
Dr. Scherer's Step To Greater Use
fulness And More Far Reach
'ditor Herald and News: Speak
ing of the approaching inaugration
-o Dr. J. A. B. Scherer as president
of Newberry college. The Herala
and News of Friday last truly says:
"The press throughout the state has
been vinanimous in praise of Dr.
Scherer and in recommending his t
ness for the position he will occupy.
Well known as a preacher, as ZI
orator, as an earnest and sincere
worker. as a successful author ana
as a noble gentleman. it may be saia
that Newberry college is truly to be
congratulated on the prospect of hav
ing such : man at its head. In prais,,
oIf him who will step down on this
ocasion from the positi: n he has so
adorned for ten years it is f,lt no
words are adeq(tate.
Pardon me iol calling atten:i,n t.:
the phrase. which might be misut.
(erstood. I speak of it. in no spirit
of criticism. for I fully agree with the
thought evidently in the mind of the
writer that the highest and most im
portant position that any man can
occupy is that of a minister of the
gospel.. For any man to abandou
such a position for any other would
he a -step do-vn", but in this case
the step is on!y into another fiela
of Christian work and influence. For
Dr. Scherer it is a "*step down". at
the call of duty and of the church,
from a larger to a smaller salary;
from the pastorate of a congenial and
appreciative people to a position in
which he will sometimes seem to
stand alone: from the personal 'ad
vantages of residence in a city. to
the st:pposed disadvantages of resi
dene in a smaller community. But
in view of the facts that the most im
portant work of the church today ib
the work of christain education, that
upon rothing does the very life of
tlv.. chuIrch depend mo(re than upon
the maintainance of her colleges.
that the most important work of the
litheran church in the farther.south
is the better support and better equip
mnet -4 Newberry college. that he
come,"to the work at a time when the
c!!cge, by what it has already ac
comp1;-hed of good to the church
and -ate. merits the very best efforts
thit tan be put forth in its behalf,
his step is a "step upward" to hard
er w:srk. but to grater usefulness and
more -r reaching influench.

THE HIGHEST AUTH(
THE BEST HOUSEKEEI
CANNON AND FAIRBANKS.
Two Men Most Prominently Men
Washington. May 16.-There is a
vast difference in the personalities of
"Uncle Joe" Cannon and Senator
Fairbanks, the two men so much talk
ed for the republican vice presidential
nomination. It was supposed here
all along that Senator Fairbanks
would have the place without opposi
tion, but some one sprang the name
of Speaker Cannon at a time when
enthusiasm was ripe for him, andi
there is deep fear in the heart of the
Illinois man himself that he will be
kidnapped and forced into the post-i
tion against his hearty remonstrances,
His fear is so deep that qe arid his
friends out in Illinois are plotting like
the most vertiable conspiritors for
any other patient political steed who
will stand steady long enough to re
ceive the load on his back. Cannon
is running away from the prospects
worse than' frightened humans from
a yellow fever outbreak, and Fair
banks is saying nothing. assuming a
most dignified stand and waiting de
velopments. He is said to want the
nomination but he does not let his
views in that direction be known. He
takes the position that he will not
enter into a scramble for the place or
seek it any way. If he is nominated
with the opinion that there will be
a fight. he -will withdraw.
There is still a strong desire to
push the nomination on the Illinois
man. This comes about from the per
sonal popularity of Cannon. and the
fact 'that members of congress all
over the country would be glad to
see his political fortunes prosper. It
is anything with them to push along
the high regard for "Uncle Joe." and
advertise him thoroughly. Mr. Can
non is a really good fellow. and at
the same time perfectly practical
and sensible. He has made one oi
the great speakers of the house. be
loved by republicans and democrats.
Reed was a brainier man anj ruled
the house by the, sheer force of his
ability. He had none of Cannon's
good fellow spirit about him. He
was distant, sarcastic. lacking in' jo
vial qualities and reveling in ironclad
barbs which he hurled without dis
crinination at his weaker brethren.
Cannon ruled the house by. both
ability ad cordiality. 'If you shoula
;ee his face without getting a
glimpse of his intelligence and merry
eyes you might think he was a gooa

who out of sheer high esteem' or
hemselves and contempt for every

-oesn't look the same in "Uncle Joe."
Then he wears a little dinky felt hat,
black and soft, and it never .sets
straight on his head. The angle of
his cigar, the sauciness of the position
of his hat, the twinkle in a merry eye
all bespeak the fact that he enjoys
life and never suffers from dyspepsia
or gloomy thoughts. He gesticulates
with his left hand, the forefinger stif
ly extended and all the others closed,
nd he says something when he talks.
Fairbanks is tall. angular, clumsy
who out of sheer high esteem of
looking, cold, dignified. brainy, a
reat lawyer, and much forced suav
ity. That represents the contrasts
etween the two nien. Somebody
ere has declared that if Fairbanks
s nominated Mr. Hearst will imme

:ould not awaken enthusiasm from
nagnetic reasons or from any other,
ut he could say things so full of

eople. Although lacking in magne
