It would seem to be the plain duty
of the legislature to support Clemson
college by a direct appropriation in
the same manner as the other insti
tutions of the State are supported.
The position of The Herald and News
seems to us to be the correct anI wise
onp--A. R. Presbyterian.
For the good of Clemson and for
the interests of the State, the support
of Clemson must eventually be by di
THE PROSPERITY SCHOOL.
There is no greater agency for the
development and growth of any com
munity than a first class school. In
order to have such a school, it is nec
essary to raise money in order to pay
the teachers and other expenses of
the school. There should be sufficient
funds to secure the best talent. Un
fortunatiely, in many instances, our
people have not considered as careful
ly as they should the fitness and capa
eity of the teacher to whose training
they commend their children.
The era of lack of proper interest,
however, we believe, is- rapidly pass
ing in this section, and it as a good
omen that more attention is being
given, particularly, to the high schools
and rural schools Qf the Stare, and
more care is being takp.n i4 the selec
tion of those who are to nave chgrge
of the children.
The devolpment of the senool at
Prosperity has been marked during'
the past several years. We can re
call wheTi there was only a two room

'later another~ building was erected in
the town of wod which was- sumf

&nd in order to keep pace with the
deveopment of the times, it is neces- I
sary to have more fu'tds so that suf

Mi. Looking to that end, an election
has been ordered for next Tuesday to
vote an additional two-mill tax on
the district for school purposes. Thius
election shiould be carried without a
dissenting vote. There is no doubt
.that the additional tax will be voted
by a decided majority, but it would
be very gratifying to the friends of
the school, and they should include
every citizen in the district, if the
vote was unanimous.
The past year, which came to a
close this week with a most initerest
ing program, has been very success
ful. Prof. Geo. D. Broil and his as
. sistants have done good work, and
the trustees, if possible, should re
-tain their services for another ses
sion. The teachers, such as now con
stitute the faculty of the Prosperity
school, are in demand, and if the dis
trict can not pay adequate salaries,
they can not expect to retain such
teachers. It is important, in fact, the
most important, question before the
people of the community.

"My little brother hasn't any yet,"

the earnest adviser.

tant of James D. Nance camp of Unit-'
ed Confederate Veterans, therefore, he
it resolved by said camp,
"1. That in the death of Osborne
Lamar Schumpert this camp deplores
the loss of a most efficient officer and
a most valued associate.
"2. That by that death the people of
Newberry and of the State of South
Carolina have been deprived of a cit
izen patriotic, brave, true and useful,
both in war and in peace.
"3.That the m.m'bers of this camp
will ever honor and cherish his mem
"4. And it is further resolved, that

A NEGRO'S HEROIC DEVOTION.
Badge Presented by Veterans to Ned
Gilliam, Who Recovered Master's
Body Under Heavy Fire.
A striking and unique feature of
Memorial day here on Wednesday af
ternoon was the presentation to an
old negro, Ned Gilliam, of a badgel
for the heroism which he displayed in
recovering the body of his master
from the field of battle, and bringing
it home for burial. The badge was
presented by the James D. Nance
camp, United Confederate Veterans,
the presentation being made by Vet
eran W. G. Peterson, who introduced
the resolution in the camp for recog
nition of the negro's act:
On the 13th day of December, 1862,
the Federal army, commanded by Gen.
A. E. Burnside, attacked the Confed
erate army, commanded by Gen. R. E.
Lee, -at Fredericksburg, Va. Gen.,]
Kershaw's brigade was stationed on
Lee's hill, to the right of the telegraph"I
road, some dis-tance farther from'
Fredericksburg than. Mayree's
Heights. As the Federals were con
centrating their attack on Mayree's
Heights, General Kershaw was order
ed to move his brigade by flank, left
in front, down the telegraph road to-f I
wards Mayree's Heights. This move
ment was made in full view of the
Federal artillery on the Stafford hills,!
across the Rappahannock river. Theli
Federals concentrated their whole fire
on Kershaw's brigade. This was one!
f the hottest artillery fires the bri- Ij
5ade was Mecir unde'. While going
down this road Lieutenant James ,
Spencer Piester, a member of Coin-<
pany C, 3d S. C. regiment, was strucki
by a shell from the Federal cannon <
and his leg cut off, and w'as left in
:he road. . .
Ned Gilliam, colored, a servant of
Lieutenant Piester, was up on the [t
1i1.1 above, out of danger. Ned was t
nformed that his master was shot and i
tilled down the road. He immediately'
started down the road, and amid the 1
;hriek of the shells ;and the groans
>f the wounded and dying, he reached 3
113 mnaster, put him on hi biek, ahd
3arried him back out of danget of the
s'hells. Here Ned dha~ a grave, and, c
w'rapping his da~st's body in three~
blanket, he buried 'him as best he
mould, a.nd then, as so-on as he could,
te came home.
As soon as he was able to make the'I
atecessary arrangements. Nea e-w: 1
back to Virginia, .got a coffin at Rich
mnond, went to the temporary grave of
his master, secured the body, and
brought it home3, and Spencer Piester2
was buried in his native St.ate, att
Cannon's Creek, in this county.
Ned has always been true to the
cause of the Confederacy, and always
attends the State reunions.
For this fidelity to his master, and
his bravery shown that bloody De
cember day, the James D. Nance camp,
No. 336, United Confederate Veterans,
of Newberry, presented .the badge to
