Interesting and Instructive Meeting.
Addresses by Profs. Stuckey and
The nee:ing of the county teach
ers association on Saturday was a
very interesting and instructive one
to those engaged in the profession as
well as to those interested in the ed
ucation of the county and State and
this should include all our people.
Prof. Stuckey spoke of the necess
ity and importance in our education
al system of having the link between
the high school and the college made
so that there would be no break or
broken link between the high school
and college, so that, when the'pupil
had finished the high school he could
step right into the college. The
western and northern and eastern
states had already recognized the
importance of this and had so ar
ranged the high school. Southern
states were now taking the matter up
and Georgia and Texas had already
taken action and he hoped South
Carolina would do so sooi.
Prof. D. W. Daniel of Columbia
college spoke of the dignity of teach
ing and That every teacher should be
pr-,d of his profession and dignifv it.
He -believed that next to the miini
try it was the grandest calling among

Mr. Seabrook's Sermon.
\\'e regret that the crowded condi

allow us to give even a meagre out
lne of Mr. Seabrook's sermon of yes-I
terday morning, on the subject "The
Temperance Question and the Indi
v'idual." HeI too k for his text.t Cor

while the world standeth lest I
make my- brother- to offend.'

tiew i8. 7-14. lhe begged his conlgre
gation remember tihe words (of the
Scripture th rough out the discouir5e
and remember that they wtere the
chief p)art of the sermon. His address
w~as an intenisely personal one, and
was listened to most attentively by
tle large congregation, that w~as
plainly deeply impressed by his log
ical argument and the deep feeling
with which lhe applied the truth to the
individual. His main argument was
that back of all temperance problems
is tie personlal question, There wotuld
be no liquor traffic if there were no
drinkers; liquor is sold to be drunk.
The liquor traffic is not supported
by the drunkards but by the occas
ional drinkers. No boy is ever made
a drunkard by the example of the in
temperate man. It is the example of
the occasional drinker, the moderate
drinker, that leads boys to contract
the habit that leads so many' to
drunkards graves. In the course of
his remarks he took occasion to coin
lemn drinking clubs as more baleful
in their influence, and more insidious
in their evil work than is the dispenl
sar or even the old saloon system.
adI urged all wvho love their fellowmenl
to refuse membership in and to use
all the influence of their lives against
such organizations. His concluding
wvorls were "I (d0 not stand here as
