OSBORNE LAMAR SCHUMPERT.
Born Newberry, S. C., July 26, 1S45
Died December 10, 1910.
On this anniversary of the passing
to his crowning of one, of whom one
of the most precious memories of my,
life is the thought that he was my
friend, I would, were it possible, bearl
to beautiful Rosemont, where he
sleeps, a garland of flow-ers to lay
upon his grave. Since this can not
be, my heart turns to the dear South
land, and those whom he loved so well,
and is prompted to pay this humble
tribute to his memory.
Osborne L. Schumiert was most re
spected and esteemed by those who
knew him best. With his life and
haracter no "distance lent enchant
ment," but intimacy-the clear view
disclosed the qualities and the charms
that distance hid.
From the first hour of our acquain
tance till the last admiration, first
iwak-ened, blossomed into esteem, and
the beautiful 'bloom of highest esteem
ripened in the fruitage of sincere af
fection. Our personal relations were
lose and intimate, and it is a joy of
ny lie to know thaL I had some de
ree of his confidence. In the hos
pitality of his home, we read together.
We talked of books and men. We
alked of the past and of the present
mid of the future. I learned to know
iim as a man and as my friend.
Added to his large and comprehen
ive knowledge of men and affairs, he
possessed a mind remarkably well bal
Lnced, calm and just in its jildgments.
Ie was a 'man of attractive and win
iing qualities, and attached his friends
:o him as with bands of iron. He was
ilways true to them with a loyalty
:hat knew no thought of desertion orlI
)etrayal, and they trusted him without
luestion, without hesitation and with
)ut doubt.' His rugged honesty, his
%ntire candor, his,freedom from hypo
risy, cant or pretence, his unfaltering
ourage and a child-like trust were
inderlying traits. of a noble charac
er. He was sincere, generous-heart
d, broad-minded and level headed.
As I think of him, I am reminded of
he tender words of the Quaker poet,
He has done the work of a true man,
Crown hi-m, honor hi'm, love him;
Veep over him tears of woman,
Stoop manliest brows above him.
No duty could o'ertake him,
No need his will outrun;
)r ever lips could ask him
His hands the work had done."
A devoted husband and father, he
oved his home, "where loved wife in1
eace and pleasure reigned; where *
:hildren dwelt, happy and gladdenedI
,y a father's presence and a parent's
vie; -where nature smiled and happi
The tear-filled eyes and hearts so
ull, now mute in anguish round the
earthtone of that Southern home,
tre far more eloquent than choicest
ords of friend, however true, to testi
y his worth.
.......... cause of sorrow
4ust not be measured by his worth,1
t hath no end."
But best of all, he was a Christian
:entleman, who served his God hum
ly, with no display or hollow show,
mt with a. contrition inspired by "a'
Leavenly spirit of all grace vouchsaf-I1
d to man through the sacrifice of the
ion of God, which stands ready to
nter the hearts of all men who serve11
iod with a willing mind and perf.e'ct
We speak what we do feel,
fot what we ought to say."
Good an gels guard thee,
;leep, sleep in peace,
Lnd wake in joy."

A MATTER OF PRESURPTION. Co
wberry Observer. Co
)ur esteemed local cotemporar.,, The:
rald and News, appears to regard it F0
presumptuous that the Observer 1
)uld "presume" that the ne-wly-ap- I
nted county superintendent of edu- I
ion will resign his position as a I
mber of the asylum commission be
e, assuming the duties of superin
dent. After his chasing his oppon
over the county in the campaign
ee years ago with a great big vol
.e of the Revised Statutes and mak- t
his fight for the senate chiefly on _2
two-office issue, and after his hav
said so much on the subject-in his
vspaper at various times, the Ob
ver felt justified in its presumption.
Vhat the Observer's "legal" opinion
y be on the subject is .immaterial
,e; but it is true that it agreed with --
iator Johnstone and Senator Till- FR
n and Rev. C. D. Mann and Jno. G. .1
hards, Jr., and many other men of -
re or less intelligence, that holding FO
position of trustee of Clemson col- I
did not disqualify one from hold
an office. Col. Aull, as .candidate F0
office and as newspaper editor, in
ted that it did; so it was a perfect- i
fair inference that he held similar j1
s in regard to holding a position
the asylum .commission and 4s 31
ty superintendent of education.
i, therefore, without being guilty I
ndue "presumption," we still pre- s
e that the colonel will resign from1
asylum board before entering up- _
the duties of school superintendent.I
