MANDAMAS ASKED FROM THE
Motion Made Yesterday by John
Gary Evans, Throu Charles
Columbia, June 5.-Hon. John d7r
Evans, through Chas. E. Commander,
Esq., appeared before the state su
preme court today asking for an or
der of mandamas to compel the state
board of control to pay the beer dis
pensers of the state salaries instead
of commission. This action was in
line with the fight against the beer
dispensaries of the state. which has
been in progress for some time past,
and which has been the subject of al
most endless newspaper discussion.
The motion was placed on the same
ground on which the fight has been
based all along.
On account of the crowded condi
tion of the docket the matter was
postponed until the November tern*
of the supreme court.
Counsel who brought the motion
also stated that they desired to push
all the requirements of tihe state
The Same One.

rich farmer parishioner rode the ani

The old gentleman studied the horse
carefully and observed that he seemed
very aged and infirm.
"Well, father," said his son, "1
don't think you ought to complain of
bim, even if he is old and feeble.
It is a good deal better animal than
our Saviour rode into Jerusalem
nineteen hundred years ago."
"I don't know, John," replied his
father: "I think it's the same animal."

give some idea, however, of the prin
ciples laid down, not only for the ed
tication of our youth, but as applicable
to all the great questions in which
our people are interested:
Mr. Smith spoke of the import
ance and significance of such an oc
casion in any community, an occa
sion of triumph to painstaking teacher
and faithful student; an occasion
fraught with responsibility for every
child, who shall soon learn that life
is a preparation-that life is a mere
span between two eternities-who
shall learn that he is a laborer, a
helper, and said that he had come to
offer encouragement and that if he
ight make one suggestion that shall
prove of benefit to the educational
success of our school, the education
11 success of the children in it, he
will always be profoundly grateful
for the opportunity of speaking that
word of encouragement and help.
The law of progress is written in
ill nature. The stately oak, today
;tanding in its strength, defying the
;torms that sweep over it, was once a
ragile sprig. Each succeeding sea
on has contributed to its develop
nent and it has grown stronger year

nore pass away, the hand that once
was so feeble becomes mighty and

mpire: the tongue that then could be
ieard only in childish prattle becomes
:apable of swaying the multitude by
ts eloquence. When this principle
)f continuous progress is applied to
he moral and intellectual nature,
:here we have the definition of edu
:ation in i:s highest sense.
The speaker then announced his
heme, some of the fatal tendencies of
he times in education and some of
he problems to be solved. with the
neans of their solution. He said that
