from a sinking ship, but Jackson
stood immovable, as the Rock of
Gibraltar, and emerged from the con

Who remembers (except in a chron
ological way) the kinuly ok( gentle
men that defeated Clay in the mem
orable struggle of 1848? Where
stands Thurlow Weed the treacher
ous and envious engineer and conduc
tor, according to Oliver Dyer of the
under ground train which railroaded
Clay away from the White House?
Clay, who would rather be right than
president; who placed the public
welfare first, friends second and self
third, will live on through the ages as
a great statesman when his jeal
ous detractors have been, long for
gptten. We can not all be Jackson,
Fandolphs. and Martin Luthers, who
gured in great actions which write
emselves in lightnings across the
skies, but we can be heroes in the
smaller spheres where God has
placed us for wise and useful pur
poses. It is high time for the old
notion to be obliterated fron the
minds of students and the public, that
a college diploma, presupposes en
trance into one of the so-called learn
ed professions. A man should enter
that calling where he can do his best.
The addition of a textile depart
ment to Newberry college was a wise
and judicious step, towards the ac
complishment of this end. Twist the
matter as we will, the question of
making an honest and decent sup
port in life, like Banquo's ghost, will
not down. The tide of immigration
which has been flowing from, the
North to the West and Northwest,
will soon turn to the South, and the
men of the South must be prepared
to meet the demands of skilled labor,
or go to ffthe wall. A successful and
scientific farmer, mill superintend-!
ent, civil engineer or tradesman, is a
philanthropist, compared to the fail
ure in one of the learned professions.
The South has been chained to the
ground long enough. If she lies there
supinely, it will be her own fault.
For nearly a century she raised the
cotton of the world and sent practi
cally all of it, elsewhere for manu
facture. We began to take on .e
life as soon as this suicidal policy
checked. -But we should not stop
The, trouble is, there is too'
cotton on the brain. There is,
ting radically wrong when our
lumber and other material can

an we can .make them, at home.

great reflection upon this section,
at it can not build such a worth'ess,
machine and reap some of the bloat-;
ed profits which would have opened
the eyes of Aladin, in his palmiest:
days. I carry nio animosity against
the North. I have been there a num

mains, that for nearly 50 years the'
North has had ,the bull by the horns,
stripping him to the bone, while the:
South has been returning thanks for
the hide, hoofs and tallow, as her
share of the funeral meats. But we
can now see the dawn of a brighter
day. We believe that there is a great
future for the trained and educated
brain of the South, if properly put to'
One of the burdens which every
college carries, and which has work-;
ed untold harm, has been the indif
ference and incompetence of too
many of its graduates--particularly
those of the provincial districtp. So
marked :has been this feature that a
small territory has been synonymous
with inefficiency, and an invitation to
be kicked around at random. This
handicap should be all the greater
incentive to redoubled efforts and,
more substantial achievements. The
current which has been flowing from
the country to the town, and from the
town to the city, will never be turn-:
ed into its true and legitimate chan
nel, until strong men bring about~
better conditions. Successful farms,
superior schools, splendid churches-'
supplied by men of a good courage'
and able minds, will keep the pendu
lum in its normal position.
Caesar is reported to have said
that he would rather be a great man
in a village than a failure in a city.
Most men, surprisingly, take the re
verse side of the picture. The two
most noted surgeons of this country,
-men of international fame-are
now plying their trade, in a town of
Minnesota, barely the equal of your
littl r.ity, in wealth and population.
Lnder difcourging conditions and
great obstacles. they labored and
toiled, until now, they are riding the
crest of the surgical wave, and their
clinic is the Mecc;i towards which the
professional world is wending its
way, for the latest advances and im
provements. Sifted to its last anal
sis, success, after all, must come
mainly from within. Advantages and
opportunities are great auxiliaries,
but there is no royal road to learn
ing. We sometimes doubt the wis
dom of making an education too easy
and cheap to acquire. It weakens
self-confidence and dwarfs, the ener
gies-those sturdy essentials to bring
out the best in us. Thomas Carlyle
compares the work of this world to
"an immense hand-barrow with in
numerable handles of which there is
one for every man. But there are
some, so lazy they not only let go
their handle, but jump on the barrow
and increase the weight." A college
may have its princely endowment, its
vast army of students and its splen
did corps of instructors-all to be
desired and sought after-but there
must finally be an answer to the vital
questions: Who are your graduates?
What manner of men are they? What
percentage is falling by the wayside
in the race which is being run? How
many have the grit of Gideon's three
hundred-tried by a severer test than
the method of drinking water-who
are to storm and batter down the cita
del of the Midian hosts?
A man's alma mater is in the atti
tude of a mother who, through anx
ious months and years, spares no
pains to instil high ideals and studi
ous habits, that he may go out, pre
pared to do his duty and exemplify
her teaching. She expects him to be
loyal and true. She watches him as
he climbs the mountain slope, sym
pathizes with him in his struggles
and cheers him on to his greatest
efforts. Her success should be his
pride; her shortcomings, his concern
and consideration. Her strivin-s,
from year to year, for better facilities
and increased equipment, demand
better -and more efficient service
from those who enjoy them. During
the days. when faculty and students
were struggling together under dif
ficulties; when clouds hung heavily
over the brave old college and her
fght for existence and supremacy
was a death-grapple; many of ther
sons, like Moses of old, scaled the
sunny heights of Nebo. and gazed "up
on the uttermost country"-though
nlOt allowed to enter. The twentieth
century alumnus, vwith 'superiOr ad
vantages and '-v~ith a fuller wisdom,
must be the .Thshua to invade, hither
to, forbidden fields, and shed new
luster upon the grand old institution.
A coterie of great Roman ladies
were once discussing their diamonds,
their finery and their splendid orna
ments. Among them was the pure
and noble, mother of Tiberius and
Caius Gracchus, who was asked to
display her jewels. She pointed to
her two devoted sons and said:
"These are my jewels." Throughout
her glorious future, when Newberry
college is asked to display her tro
phies, may she be able to lay her gen
tle hands upon the heads of her loyal
sons and proudly exclaim: '"These
are my jewels."
