Lecture Before Newberry College By
John Belton O'Neall Holloway
J. B. O'Neall Holloway, an alumnus
Df Newberry college of the class of
75, made an addressbef ore the students
n Holland Hall auditorium on Thurs
ay of last week. His subject was
'College Reminiscences" and being
>ne of the older alumni his address
as interesting. He vividly contrast
:d the meagre appointments, an entire
.ack of anything like reasorable com
orts in the old college 'building at
Walhalla and the splendid, up-to-date
mid beautiful buildings that now adorn
:he college campus in Newberry. His
:haracterizations of many of his fel
ow students and especially his class
nates ever full of good humor were
ieartily enjoyed by the student body.
Fhe speaker paid a splendid tribute to
Dr. Smeltzer who was president oi
:he college during his attendance-to
:he ndble sacrifices, ;heroic devotion
mid loyalty to ,the college. He feel
-g!Y declared that every act of Dr.
;meltzcr, every fibre -of his being, ev
ry pulsa:ion of his heart, every turn
: 1his hand, was for the good of New
)erry. He held -the interests of New
)erry college dear to 'his heart and
nade sacrifices for the college that
iow seem almost incredible to corn
)rehend. He likewise paid a feeling
ribute :o Prof. D. Arrington.
Mr. H,lloway interspersed his re
aarks with apt illustrations from the
ives of former students showing what
ccess they had made. "Is success
vcrth the aim," asked the speaker,
nd answered the question by declar
ng that success is desired, s'ould be
lesired, but success is a low stand
rd-it leaves out the moral element
>f character-it takes no account of
he methods by which success is at
ained, and cites the example of Dives
nd Lazarus. The former estimated
v the world's standard was a grand
uccess; the latter a stupendous fail
re. Bu-t is it really so? Measured
y the world's standard some of he
.otblest men, whose lives have enrich
d 'humanity and blessed the world
re are failures. Measured by the
ame standard some ignoble men, who
ived w'holly selfish lives have attain
d the highest success. There is
omething t worthier than success-it
faithfulness to duty in every posi
ion in life, high or low, wvhere a kind
'rovidence -has placed one to serve.
here is something better than sue
ess, or fame or pomp an'd vanities oi
h.is world-a noble life consecrated
o roble ends and spent in humble
Man-making declared the speaker
s the most tremendous work -ohat
an engage the efforts of anyone.
The address was enjoyed as cvi
enced by the many acts of approval
rom the student body.

Good Cotton Pickers.
Some while ago the Anderson Mail
published a notice of what a family
did in that county in .the cotton field.
It was very good for the children.
They are the grandchildren of a Con
The folowing is what the Mail had
to say of this family of cotton pickers:
Mr. P. V. Tims of Garvin town
ship is a Confederate veteran. He is
62 years 61d and is enjoying the -best
of 'health. He has 33 grandchildren
an seven great-grandchildren.
The o,her day, jus.t to show what
he could do, he went out into the
cotton field and picked 263 pounds o.f
cotton between sunrise and sunset,
and even th,en did not hurt ;himself.
His grandson, J. B. Tims, aged four
and a half years, picked 49.pounds of
cotton in one half a day. Another
grandchild. Leila Tims, aged 13, pick
ed 267 pounds of cotton in a day, and
s'till ano:her grandchild, Geneva Tims,
aged ii. pioked 232 pounds in a day.
This is the story told by Mr. 'Tims'
son, J. P. Tims, who is the father of
the children w1ho made such a good
record. He says 'he can furnish
abundant corro'borative evidence, if
any is needed.
The ~best cotton picking that we
have everh4'eard of was done last week
on Mr. P. N. Boozer's place in No. 7
Bessie Sanders, a colored .woman,
started after <the sun 'had been up
about a haLf hour and quit before it
set about a hal-f hour and during tha.t
time she gathered 303 pounds. Her
sister, Mary 'Sanders, picked during
the same time 480 pounds.
It was fine cotton having open at
th'e time a:bout i,ooo pounds 'to the
This' is good cotton picking.
At The Theatre.
The Donnelly and Harfield min
strels will hold (he 'boards at t'he opera
house on Saturday night.
The' Norfolk (Va.) 'Times speaks of
the performance in tthat city thus:
The performance 'given last night
left nothing to be desired. The sing
ers were all good, the comedians
clever, and ,the jokes and monologues
all new and up-to-date.
Among the specially good musical
numbers was iMr. Johnson's solo,
"When the Fields are Wlhiite With
Daisies," and Mr. Stanley's song
"Bunker Hill." "TIhe Military Coons,"
by Brown and IIvers wvas a decidedly
good number and -they were forced to
respond to numerous enchores and
the quar'tet.te composed of Messrs.
Johnson, Stanley, Losee and Decker
who sang "Wh en 'the Winds O'er the
Sea Blows a Gale." was one of the
rettiest nunmbers on the program.
.In the olio There were a number of
decided novelties, 'foremost among
them being the Tuscano Brothers in
their remai1kable roman battle ax jug
gling act and the Toledo troupe of
acrobats and contortionists in their
It would be 'to leave out one of the
most enjoyable features of the whole
performance were Tommy Donnelly
and Harry Skunk's comedy skit in
which they introduce a num(ber of de
cidedly clever parodies and one of .the
cleverest double monologues that 'has
been heard here for a long time, omit

siasm 'that this popular couple was
greeted by the audience who did not
fail to bestow upon them a kindly
recognition. for their very clever 'work

MR. WALLACE TO MR. JONES.
Takes an Entirely Opposite View of
the Situation-He Says it was an
ece," not a Prohibiticn
To the Editor of the News and Cou
rier: Mr. A. C. Jones, in an article in
your paper -roday, referring to my be
ing present at a recent conference in
"Mr. Wallace was there to continue
his fight against me. In justice to
myself and my friends, especially
throughout the state, it is due them
that I should say 'that up to a few
years ago Mr. Wallace professed to
be a good friend of mine, and I re
garded him as suclh, until I was warn
ed by another friend that I was mis
taken. I could not 'believe it true
until I traced his treachery to his
door and told him to his face of it,
and he sat without opening his mouth,
and let me ad-d 'that from this day on
I want our paths to be as far apart
as the east is from the west.'
'I wish to say, in the first place, that
my presence at -that conference was
without the slightest reference to Mr.
Jones, as a candidate for governor or
otherwise, and that I -have never had
any fight against him of any sort
whatever. fore than that. he~ has
never told me to my face of any
treachery. He told me six years ago
that he wished our paths thereafter to
be as far apart as the east from the
wvest: and I have scrupulously observ
ed his .wish in that regard.
As to the rest of Mr. Jones' le*ter
I need say nothing, except that -he is '
very wide of the mark in the object.
and purposes of 'the conference. I
presume all attended it as I did, to
onsult about the anti-dispensary

"Several gentlemen interested in
the fight against the dispensary are to c
meet here next Monday night, Octo
ber 2. to have a free and candid dis
cussion of thes ituation. This is deem
ed well, because the time is approach
ing when it :s possible for our crowd
to make mistakes in tactics. It is de
sired that you be here at that confer
'Then follow the names of four gen- c
blemen, who, with "a few others," -were 4
expected. It -was not a conference to t
nominate a state ticket or a United
States senator, and was not limited to
prohibitionists. For my part I have
never 'belonged to any prohibition or~
ganization--though I 'have alwaysa
voted against the 'sale of liquor when
ever the question has been presented
n any form. This was an anti-dispen
sary conference-not called by Mr.
Brunson's friends,.or his enemies eith

Jones had. .
