The assembling in Columbia of
the state cotton association just at
this time is worthy of more than
passing note. It is not necessary
to recount the work of the South
ern Cotton association. WVe have
but to look at the reports of local
banks, the price of farm land
about us and the clear receipts to
find that all around us there is pros
perity and progress. It is not neces
sary for one to have slept the sleep
of old Rip Van Winkle to wake to
find that the cotton growing states
have a new face. a new hope. Tho
.we are often ignorant of a silent
growth when we are ever present,
yet present or absent the conditions
of the southland is apparent even
to the blind.
Let us not be confounded by
this sudde'n rise to prosperity. Let
us not be confused by an abnormal
price of a money crop to grasp
at bags of gold in 19o6. The end of
the rain bow is not yet.
The industrial growth of any na
tion is steady. What South Caroli
na wants to avoid is a back set. In
nations as in individuals the re
lapse is the dangerous attack. Let's
make our gold by cooperation, at
all times recognizing and following
economic laws. To follow a para
phrase of Longfellow might do.
The heights by great nations
reached and kept
Were- not attained by sudden
But they while other nations slept
Were toiling upward in the night.
All honor let us give to the or
ganization and to all farmers who
made the pledge and stuck to the
oath in 1905. Yet we are disposed
to give greater credit to the planter
who will repledge himself for this
year and in the face of the high
price of 1905, and the fact that the
world will need more cotton in 1906
be a man and stick to this obliga
tion. The farmer who will give his
pledge or even lead the association
to believe that he is in sympathy
and does not himself reduce his cot
ton acreage is not to be trusted:; be
ware of him. It is not so hard for
the small farmer to carry out the
suggestions of the associaiton as in
the past year. The same reduction
of 25 per cent in acreage is request
ed with exception of the man who
plants only ten acres in cotton; he
is not asked to plant less. In ad
dition to this, the South Carolina
association endorsed- the principles
of the Southern Cotton association
such as cooperation of producer
consumer, of the banker and the
farmer and the. diversification of
crops. The association also recom
mends tax of'ten cents per bale on
the crop of 1906, the collection of
which is to be left to each county.
The treasurer's report given in
this paper today is especially in
teresting. Although the life of
the association is dependent on co
operation the existence depends on
its financial support. In contribu
tions Marlboro leads other counties
contributing $621.55 to the good
cause. Darlington, O)rangeburg
and Spartanburg have given equal
lv wvell. There is only 105.92 to the
credlit of Newberry county. Al
though this is more than was given
by Lexington and Pickens still it
is not what Newberry can do and
will do. The sacrifice that officers
of the associaiton are making, the
great amount of time they~ are
spending on perfecting the orgam
zation dlemandIs that our fmnancial
and moral support be extended.

CHIEF JUSTICE POPE.
WVhen Mr. Y. J. Pope, of New

were disappointed. He w~as not on

competent to perform the duties of

There is little doubt Chief Jus

Newberry College Gymnasium.
The new gymnasium for New

about for so long a time. is about
to be a realization. Work has al
ready begun upon the erection of
the building. It will be a structure
of brick and wood, 40 x 85 feet,
with all apartments suitable for an
up-to-date gymnasium. It is loca
ted on the campus to the rear of
Smeltzer Hall. Work has already
begun, and will be pushed rapid

a cash basis.
The board also elected Mr. T. L.
B. Epps, keeper of the county home.
Mr. John .A. Suber is the present
keeper, and has held the position

general satisfaction. Mr. Epps is a
