SOUTH CAROLINA COLLEGE.
Scholarships For Men Teachers.
Eighty-two scholarships for men
teachers! That is one of the fruits
of the educational statesmanship of
the last legislature. The legislature
at its first session in 1903 established
in the South Carolina college forty
one normal scholarships, and at its
next session doubled the number of
these scholarships, making two from
each county. This was to provide
a new class, but as not all of the hold
overs will return, there will doubtless
be as many as sixty new scholarships
awarded this summer, one in every
county and two to a county in many
instances. Any person interested
should wiite President Benjamin
Sloan or Prof. Patterson Wardlaw.
Columbia, S. C.
Each of these scholarships pays $40
in money toward living expenses, and
exempts the holder from a fee of Si8,
which is exacted of all other students,
and also exempts from the tuition fee
of $40. which, however, is remitted to
any student who makes proof of in
ability to pay it. It admits a man
entirely free and pays about half of
his board. This munificence of the
state is designed, primarily to provide
better teachers for the county
schools, but incidentally it aids poor
but worthy young men to ebtain a
college education and fit themselves
for higher things in life. In order
that the scholarships shall go to this
class of young men and not be gob
bled up by young fellows who could
get to college without the scholar
ships, the awards are not made solely
with reference to the marks on the
examination, and men nineteen years
of age and over are given the prefer
ence. This gives an opportunity to
the country young man, whose tech
nical preparation may be far less
than that of the fifteen-year-old grad
uate of a town graded school. but
whose maturity and earnestness are
a guaranty that when given an op
portunity to study in college he will
pull through and make a man of him
self. Preference is still further given
to young men who have taught
school. It is often the case that a
young man in the country, although
with poor preparation, attempts to
teach the neighborhood school. For
his own. sake and for the sake of the
schools he ought to be given a better
education before he becomes settled
in a life of inferior work. Hence the
spcial effort of the authorities of the
South Carolina college is to induce
young men teachers who are ill pre
pared for their work to stop now and
go to college while they can. The
scholarship men last year w ere o.f the
* average age of 22 1-3 years. and the
oldest was 33. It is hoped that such
young men, having already developed
some taste' for teaching. and going
to college with a definite pu:rpose, will
'adhere to teaching as their profes
sion. If the beneniciaries of these
scholarships were differently- selected.
a larger proportion of them woulid do
as college men so often do. turn their
-backs on the country forever and
become professional men in towns
and cities. But where they have pre
viously committed themselves to pub
lic school work, and then stop and
-go to college with the ideal of fit
ting themselves for better work in
that line, there is strong probability
that for the most part they will re
turn to country schoolteaching-a re
sult which will richly repay the state
for its liberal policy in providing for
their training as teachers.
Each year better salaries are being
paid in the country schools, and for
several years there have been in sev
eral counties country schools which
college-bred men of high reputation
are proud to teach. The simplicity.
freedom and beauty of country life.
and the growing advantages, with tel
ephones, mail deliveries, and li
.braries, have peculiar charms for the
scholar and the thinker. The present
indications are that within this dec
ade country schoolteaching in South
Carolina-so long held in disrepute
will be recognized as a choice pro
fession. Already six to nine hun
dred dollars a year, with little expense
of living, is not an infrequent salary.
Professor Wardlaw's men readily find
desirable places, and the demand for
such men increases each year.
The course of study is specially de
signed to improve the public schools.
Last year it included, besides the
usual subjects, special instruction in
pedagogics, physics, nature study, and
drawing, and the course for next year
has been enlarged and improved and
will include sight singing. The stu
dents had the benefit of observation
and practice under a critic teacher,
and next session will practice teach
ing in the Columbia public schools,
having the benefit of the supervision
and criticisms of Columbia's 'iest
The better to impress the school
spirit and arouse the young men to
a sense of the dignity and magnitude
of their profession, there will be a
series of lectures by leading school
superintendents and principals. Thus
this body of young teachers will com
bine theory and practice in their stud
ies, and every two or three weeks will
be stimulated by a special message
from some notable educator fresh
from daily contact with the practical
problems of the schoolroom.
It is thus that the college is seek
ing to extcute the wise plan of the
legislature for improving the common
schools of the state and raising the
standard of citizenship. Assembling
within her walls and at the seat of
state government annually eighty-two
young men teachers from the forty
one counties of the state, inspiring
and broadening them by contact with
students from all sections of the state
and all spheres of life, strengthening
their state pride and their unity of
spirit with the best traditions of the
state, the South Carolina college will
teach them how to study and how to
live, and how to teach, and will leave
upon them her mark as men and gen
J. Ogden Armour was talking to
a group of New York reporters about
the butchers' strike.
"When the butchers have trouble,"
said one of the reporters, "is it true
Mr. Armour. that the public pays?"
The meat millionaire laughed.
"Oh. not necessarily." he answered.
"Sometime, though." he went on, "the
public pays when the butcher gets in
trouble. For instance:
- "A butcher had cut off some meat
that had been paid for and was car
rying it in from the street to his pa
"No sooner did he enter the yard,
however, than a big, black dog pinned
him to the wall. There he stood, ter

"The dog sneaked off, and the wo

you at all?'
"'No.' he replied. 'I kept him off by
giving him your chops, and you just
arrived in time to save your steak."
DR. JAMES' IRON BLOOD AND
Dr. James' Iron Blood and Liver
Tonic is a true tonic and blood food
medicine. It increases the appetite,
strengthens the whole system. by
causing the most important organs
of the human body to perform their
proper functions. First, iron is a
n'ormal constituent of the blodd; pure
blood contains iron. If you are pale,
weak and nervous, you need a tonic
which contains iron in a form that
will be absorbed by the system and
enter the blood. Dr. James' Tron
Blood and Liver Tonic supplies the
proper amount. Now, the largest
most important organ of the human
body must be looked after-the liver.
A torpid liver means impure blood.
a bad complexion, and a dull eye and
brain: so you can see the great nie
cessity of an fetive, healthy liver.
The moment your liver fails to act
every organ suffers. Your stomach
and digestive organs become~ affect
ed. The gates of the citadel of life
are thrown wide open, and diseases
of every description attack the body.
Dr. James' Iron Blood and Liver
Tonic contains a laxative drug, which
acts on the liver, relieving billious
ness and cures chronic constipation.
We go still further, and we find when
a person is suffering from constipa
tion almost invariably their digestion
is poor, the food fails to nourish and
strengthen. Dr. James' Iron Blood
and Liver Tonic cures indigestion and
dyspepsia. It causes the food you
eat to assimilate, and the process of
digestion is again active. Nine-tenths
of our people suffer from indigestion
