I DR. CARLISLE.
A Story of the Life Work of a Sout
f If you were to go lo the town o
Spartanburg, S. and spend a
evening in the house of any man wh
lives there conversation would b
' sure to (urn-on Dr. Cralisle, and i
you .should happen to go tu the lioin
of any one who lias a direct persoiui
interest in Wol'ford college, which i
situated at one end of the to^n. Hi
chances are that most of the talk o
the evening would be about Dr. Oai
lisle. If you happen to be at the col
lege at a commencement, time, yo
1 would hear a reverent and affection
ale allusion to Dr. Carlisle in ever
public address, and you might so
every class that comes back to its rc
union go to liis house in a body to ex
pre^s their ailedinnate obligation t
And who is Dr. Cralisle? A inn
who went lit the college ;i teacher o
astroinonv ;nid moral science, in 18.V
when il was founded, and who ha
been there ever since, a p.irt of lli
time as teacher, a part of tlie time a
president, and again as teacher. II
si ill meets 11 is classes once or Iwie

Doubtless neither philosophers no
astronomers regard him as ;t grea
contributor to 1 heir departments o
learning. Yet it is doubt fill whet lie
there be an astronomer or philosophy
at any institution or in any commuti
ity in our land who has exerted s
strong an influence upon the youn
men who have come in contact wit
him. They do not say that lie taugli
them astronomy or philosophy, hn
they do all bear testimony to his gi\
ing tlieni in a greater measure ilia
any other man a right adjustment t
life and a moral uplift?a kind of ii
lluence that the oldest of his pupil:
wiio are now themselves far on i
motile life, remember with affe<
tiou that has grown since tliei
youth, and throughout the college1
influence men and women say: " \V
must send our sons to \V of ford co
lege because L)r. Carlisle is there."
He is now an old gentleman o
great dignity of character and o
speech, of wide if desultory reading
but not of the modern type of sclio
arship. lie is not an orator, and ye
until a few years ago, he had t-h
habit of delivering a public lectur
once a year, or oftener, in the towi
and anybody who did not go to hen
him lost standing in the communit
by his absence. These lectures wer
lay sermons, but everybody receii
ed them as a sort of halfinspired dc
liverances. He has never held a put
lie ollice, except that he was a men
ber of the Secession convention i
South Carolina, and is the only sui
viving member but one, and he
said to have called this adventure
p'cee of boyish foolishness. He wj
never a preacher, but always only
teacher, and what he taught best w.i
neither science nor literature?b?
The story is told of a man in To:
as who met a visitor from Spartat
burg. The first question lie aske
was: "Do you know Dr. Carlisle?
"Yes," said the other. "Are you g<
ing buck to Spartanburg?" "Yes.
"Well, I wish you would give D
( arlisle my most affectionate regard

U| OUR "JACQUERIE."
Some Facts About Our Vagrant Hobo j
Few people realize the size of the
, army ol tramps in normal times and
I still fewer how enort.*;ouslv this
I American ".jacquerie" has been re''jcruiled
during the current year,
'j There is a new and distinct re-enj
forceinen! which has bee j added
within this period, a sort of f* juniorM
army, a class of bov tramps. It is
sj easily conceivable that boy (ramp.c
[ may become the most dangerous a*
'they are certainly the saddest an<i
most deplorable clement of trampdom.
It appears from the reports of
1 ollicers of the Northern Pacific rail|
way that tramps have recently invaded
all classes of railroad rolling
stock, passenger ears as well as
I reighl car::, sometimes in such numbers
I ha I the train hands fear lo attempt

majority of cases of arrests of'I
u- tramps, (lie sentences are suspended j
on condition that the offenders will I
of disappear from the immediate nei?h- j
rv borhood where arrested.
ie, It is beginning lo draw on tines
public mind that this temporary (lisa
appearance from a given community
means the prompt reappearance in
?n the community next door. As James
J. Hill, who favors long sentences
a with hard labor for tramps, puts it in
a his forcible, clear-headed was,

Fences and barns arc stripped

built inside of freight cars, causing

out of materials stolen from

small shacks thus built and tenanted
will often terrorize the respectable,

BATTLE FOR THE INDIAN.

v-. n i-^ rapidly decimating the In?1
i : ii-. and two or more l ubercu la r
amps will be built on t!:< Xez IN-ive
reservation, where the sufferir^ red
can be treated by Ayciicx Physician
.lolin X. Ally, a recoynized authority.
The fiyhl is not local, a I
of Indian affairs
has directed Indian ayents to beyin a
ejunpiyn ayaiu.-d the yreaf white playne
in every tribe in the I'nilrd
States. 1 >octor A lie believes 7."j pet
cent of the Xez I'erces are affected
with tubercular trouble in some slaye.
1 he tribe is decreasing rapidly,
despite careful efforts on the part ol
the yovermnent employes, and the
battle which has received its impetus
from Washington, will be a scientific
attempt to remove the cause of tindisease.
Indian Ayent 0. 11. Lipps
expects to establish one camp in the
mountains, where the patients can
yet plenty of air and exercise. The
camp will be a model of scientific
improvements over old tuberenla'
camps. A second camp will be established
in the valley, where the sick
Indians can be treated in winter. Outdoor
life and primitive tent homes
are to be eneourayed. althouyh tindetails
have not been worked out.
Doctor Ally, who has been at Fort
Lapwai several years, has made
close study of the tubercular patients
and the causes which are responsible
for the spread of the playue.
He attributes the yeneral condition
to two causes: First, intermarriaqe.
and second, ignorance of laws
of ventilation and santitalion. TinIndians
are inbreeding so much that
they are already payiny the penalty
tor the violation ot' the law of human
i he Xe/. I'erces are clean, t licit
homes are neat, their kitchens and
bedrooms t'ree from dirt, but they
have no knowledye of the necessity
ot ventilation. In days of old they
lived a care-free, happy life moving
from place to place, sleepiny umlei
the stars or in a canvass teepee, seen
liny I resli air and oheyimj nature's
hvyienic laws without knowledye
of them. Now they live in fiamt
houses, which are poorlv liealtM
with stoves and often ventilated only
through cracks and crevices.
Those Indians who make annual
pilyrimayes to the Hitter Knots return
in the fall with health restored,
unless t lie patient has passed into s,
hopeless slaye of consumption. Thest
trips 111! o I lie mountains, where tin
Indian- live in a simple, peimitivt
way, are eneourayed. as tliev art
! ? ked upon as a benefit md to be obtained
in isolation camps. Almost
every Indian family has one membei
with the hectic flush and the couyl
that indicates the rapid ravayes o!
the disease. The Indian ayent wil
labor amony his people to show then
the necessity of treatment, and tin
cooperation of the patients themselves
will be sought.
