JUDGE O'NJEALL-AND THE NEW
BERBY COLLEGE STYLUS.
Not in a spirit of anger or of fault
finding, nor even in a spirit of crit
icism, except that criticism which is
kindly-meant and hopes to be of some
service, do we ask, for just one, mo
me'nt, the attention of the editors ol
the Newberry College Stylus. Some
time ago we saw in the Noviember is.
sue of this publication the dictum of
a "co-ed"-we suppose that means E
young lady student-to the effect tha1
she had "found that in place of thE
Southerners drawling their words, al
I had expected, they talk very softl3
and sweetly, but very indistinctly ani
incorrectly." If there be grammatica
or rhetorical errors in this short, kind
.ly-meant editorial, give the linotypt
operator credit for it-the linotypE
operator will not mind. Pardon this
little diversion; we started out. to asi
the editors of the Stylus that wher
they publish the name of O'Neall, the3
see-to it that it is not spelled "incor
rectly," as it was (in the December is
sue of the Stylus. Judge O'Neall was
one of the greatest jurists and one o1
the greatest men South Carolina has
given to the world. A first-class col

THIANES TO SANTA CLAUS.
Old Santa Claus has paid another
annual visit to the world, and has
again made thousands and thousands
of children happy.
Here's thanking him, and wishing
for him millions and millions of years
more of happy days.
We hope that the attacks of his
enemies made this year upon old
Santa, as they are made every year,
did not shake the faith of a single
child. In many -pulpits throughout
the land, and from other public ros
trums, his very existence was assail
ed. These attacks came from people
'who don't believe in Santa Claus,
because they have never seen him
and they are to be pitied. It takes a
love that can see through the sordid
denseness of a world-old materialism,
to see Santa Claus. It takes a heart
attune& a:h arm:zmy of the stars,
in ie neart, suCn as tne g"P" IUve
ol innocent children, to know that
Santa Claus has been, is and shall be
when those who try to put him out of
the world have long passed out of
Here's hoping that before another
Christmas the light will dawn upon
his enemies, and drive away the shad
ows of ignorance in which they are
now laboring. Probably very few of
them knew Mr. J. P. Caldwell, one of
the founders of the Charlotte Obser
ver, who only this year passed from
earth's labors. Probably if they had
known the kindly gentleman-big,
true, man that he was-a man. of big
brain and of large soul-and had talk
ed with him about Santa Claus, he
could have convinced them that in
doubting his existence, they were lab
oring in an error which was costing
them a great deal of happiness. Just
three years ago he paid a beautiful
tribute in the Charlotte Observer to
old Santa. He was then looking across
the waters% and he saw clearly, as
only those can see who. having kept
the faith, know that they are soon to
stand face to face with the King-not
the arbitrary ruler that even some pul
pits picture, but the King of Love, the
God-man, the Creator of a big uni
verse, the God of Eternity.
Listen to the words of Mr. CaldweU:
"So likewise, the man or woman
I who seeks to ibanish from the fairy
land of childhood the beautiful myth
of Santa Claus is an enemy to the hu
man race. The spirit that would shat

month, this bright ray of joy reflected
through the vista of the year, that

of their lives and leaves its sweet

chanted dreams, does not measure up
to the full breadth of Christian citiz
Beautiful words, bravrely spoken
like the big man Mr. Caldwell was.
The man who penned those words was
a benefactor, and we believe he now
has the reward which comes to those
who have bettered the world by hav

Here's a wreath of loving remem
