South Carolina has bcrne her bur
dens cheerfully. She has withstood
the numerous and diverse actions of
Blease. With no less than Christian
fortitude has she endured this ses
sion of the legislature, but the straw
that broke the camel's back has now
been placed upon her. Billy Banks
has gone to writing poetry.-Gaffney
We agree with DeCamp that this
is the last straw unless when an edi
tor is going into poetry, he is fixing
himself for "stratagem, spoils," etc.,
with apologies to Mr. Shakespeare.
The Newberry Herald and News
hears that Col. L. M. Green had been
slated for Col. Ebbie Watson's job,
the filling of which the legislature is
trying to take away from the govser
nor. One great difference between
the two colonels, we believe, is that
Col. Ebbie made his reputation as a
traveller while Col. Green made his
by staying at home.-News and Cour
The Herald and News did not say
that it heard that Col. L. M. Green had
been slated for the job. The Herald
and News said that "they say" Col.
Green was slated for the job and this
information came from some Colum
bia news bureau. The Herald and
News did not hear in Columbia that
Col. Green was slated for any job.
"There seems to be lively times in
Columbia," ventures the Newberry
Herald and News, thereby incurring
grave risk of establishing a reputation
for rashness.-News and Courier.
1 >.t .was probably running a cbnsid
erale risk to makeL any comment ou
tlie action of certain members of the
gener.al assembly and we hasted to
s'ay that we had restnae to no par
t1iulik jtn6h er r'epresentative. We
ziot fee that our frie^nd, the Yorkville
Enquirer, has come up for a few re
marks under the head of "question of
personal privilege." Of course the
Enquirer would not be permitted to
raise the question of personal privi
lege in the same forum. This present
legislature seems to have the faculty
of putting things in or expunging
from its journal any matter that its
faency sees fit, and this regardless of
whether a fair and square deal is giv
en or not.
.If the road drags belonging to
Cherokee are put into active service
and kept busy for a few days just as
soon as possible after this spell of
weather is ov'er it will not be long
until our roads are in as good condi
tion as ever, but if we had permanent
roads, dragging would not even be
necessary. It's a waste of money to
construct anything but permanent
All of which is ve.-y true, but even,
the permanent roads made of almost
any material in this co.untry need the
use of the split log drag. This is pe
culiarly true of sand-cla v roads, and'
they are really the best '"oads, con
sidering the cost,efor this section of
the country. Even the roads of Rich
land county, which have been ->raised
ver; highly, and justly so, have suf
fered very much during this winter
for lack of the use of th~e 'split log
drag. We know from expe cience in
traveling over them, and kno-v also
that if the split log drag had been
used on these roads they migh-. not
have b.een in the condition in which
A PUZZLING PROBLEII.
The Greenwood Journal gets after
the Orangeburg Times and Democrat
very sharply for wanting the re-estab
lishment of the dispensary in that
county. The Times and Democrat
says that blind tigers are run all over
the county, and the Journal thinks
that this position of the Times and
Democrat is a surrender of the law
less element and asks: "Why does not
this staunch defender of the enforce
mnent of law demand that the lawi
against the illegal sale of whiskey be
good people of tha: county surre:nr ]
to the 1awless element?"
The Times and Democrat might <
very truly ask the Journal why it does
,not demand and secure the enforce- I
ment of the law against the illegal
sale of whiskey in Greenwood county.
This position of the Journal re
minds us of an incident that actually
happened at Abbeville during the time
when the dispensary w?s in Abbeville,
and Greenwood was prohibition. It .
is said that a traveling man, who
reached Abbeville after sundown, was t
anxious to secure some whiskey, and E
he called the porter and told him of t
his troubles. Whereupon the porter l
replied that it would be impossible to
secure any whiskey in Abbeville un-I
til next morning as they had a dis
pensary in that county, and it was ec
closed. "But," said the porter, "if you C
will get me a horse and buggy, I will t
run down to Greenwood and get you
all the whiskey you need." i
We are told that at one of the very
county of Grenewood, a vryeaoishrdlu
small money order offices in the coun
ty of Greenwood, a very large amount
of money orders is sent off each 1
month, all of them going to whiskey
It is a very puzzling problem to
know what is the best to be done. We
were talking to a gentleman on the i
train only a few evenings ago. He
had just returned from Nashville. It
is now a prohibition city. He said
that during the days of the legal sale
of whiskey, the bar rooms were segre-t
gated in one section of the city, but 1
now they may be found in every sec
tion of the city and that they have
all of the paraphernalia and fixtures
and allurements of the old bar rooms. t
We would not be surprised to see a
many of the counties re-establish the
bUR HOEd PN EDUCATION,
The hope of our State lies in the e
development of its schools. And there 1:
is, in the contemplation of the possi- t
bilities of the greater and broader de- b
velopment of these schools, inspira
tion for a life's worLh. Every agencye
at the command of the State might
well be concentrated in an effort to
build up the schools of South Caro
lina. The result of such concerted1
action would work a revolution int
conditions in a wonderfully short.
while and bring about changes most q
to 'be desired in the State.
South Carolina is illiterate, and
she has a fearful crime record. Thesed
things are an ever present reproach t
and the only means of overcoming
them lies in the better education of
the children who are to be the future
men and women of the common
wealth. South Carolina has done her
part along the lines of higher educa
tion, but as a State it has neglected b
the public school system-the only
hope of the poor man's child. 2ut e
the best instruction in the reach ofC
these children, and, if a form of cam- 8
pulsory education is not to be had,
bend every effort toward creating a r
sentiment in the tSate that will carry I
the white children into school.
We believe the time is at hand for t
a great revival of interest in this di- I
rection and it is our opinion that 1
Spartanburg is the place for this '
movement to be launched. There 0
might be held in this city ,early in
the coming summer, an educational y
conference of Sta.e-wide conception, v
to be attended by teache'rs and educa- t
ors from all parts of South Carolina. S
A program couM 1:e arranged that i
would bring here to speak upon the
question of education men and wo
men of broad experience and national S
The very best is none too good for t:
South Carolina, and if the cause of j
which we~ speak is worthy, and we allp
know it is, why should it not be ~
championed in a way that would pro
claifn its importance and inspire zeal I~
among those w~ho: would enlist in the A
cause ?-Spartanburg Herald.
The abovie is from the Spartanburg
Herald of December. We have been
thinking of getting up a revival meet
ing in the interest of the schools of Tf
Newberry county, and had suggestedn
to some of the citizens of Newberry
the idea of having a meeting about theC
first of May and make an effort to
have the trustees and patrons of thel ti
rural schools to attend and see if we
could not hav'e a real old time revival a
meeting in the interest of the countryb
schools. It would not be a had ideaa
to have four or five such meetings in b
)r-sent men and women who are ia
niliar with the real conditions of the
ountry school to discuss it and to
uggest ways and means for its bet
The dreamer is alright in his place
nd in all forward movements and re- j
ivals of the kind we have in mind,
te is necessary to blaze the way, but
vhat we need now, as we see it, is
tot so much supervision as to arouse
nterest in the people whose children
.re directly concerned. As we see
he situation, the great need at pres
nt to improve the rural schools, is
o wake up the people who are direct
y concerned and whose chldren,
rom the very nature of the case, can
.ave no other educational advantage.
Ve are satisfied that in a great many
ases, at least, the parents of these
hildren do not realize the gravity of,
he situation or the importance of
oing something to better the schools
a the country.
We believe that four or five meet-.
rigs of the kind here indicated in the
ifferent sections of the State would
elp very materially in arousing tl is
We hope before long to hav'e some
lans formulated for such a meeting
o be held in Newberry, primarily for
he benefit of the rural schools in this
ounty, and we hope to make it of
tate wide interest. There is need
or an awakening.
Sometime last fall there was a re
ival of education in one of the moun
in counties of Tennessee, and they
rovided a night school for thr"2e
undred grown persons, so that the
rown people might attend school at
ight and the children in the day
ime. It was such a success, that in
very short time, the night school
ad an enrolment of three thousand,
nd they went to school up to the age
f seventy-five, and everybody in the
ounty could soon read and write. Of
ouse, t~here is not so much illiteracy I
i this county and in this State, but
de children in the country have not
ad their rights in this respect prop
rly looked after.
