BOLD THE HOSPITAL.
There is every reason to feel encouraged
by the amount raised on
Thursday in subscriptions to the capital
stock of the Newberry county hospital.
With the good amount subscribed
as a starter, it is within the ability j
of the people to build the hospital, and
we believe they are going to do so.
This is a movement which ought to
appeal strongly to every man, woman
and child in Newberry. It is a movement
which ought not to have turned
towards it a cold shoulder by any one,
and it is a movement which ought to
be substantially helped by all those
who are able to help. Of course tnere
are many in the community who are
not financially able to subscribe anything,,
and these should not be expected
to help with money. But even these
ought to lend to the movement their
There are those in the community
who are able, and they should help.
Even from a selfish viewpoint, it is to
their interest to do so. Affliction is
not choice in the place where it lays
its hand. Often there is no warning.
It would be an ideal condition if the
hospital when built should never be
needed for use, but the pity is there is
too much need for it. One can not
look a moment into the futuri and
he who is able to help in a movement
of this kind, and refuses and thereby
lessens the chances of success, can
not know what opportunity for eter*!/>!

There is another point from which
the proposition should be viewed, j
Those who have made a success in
business in the community are indebted
to the community. However great
one's ability or however vital his energy,
he could not have succeeded
without th? touch of contact and the
support of his fellow-men. And, in
addition, a hospital will help the whole
community, and thereby increase the
business importance of the community.
But there is a broader and a more
noble view. To relieve distress, as
far as human power can do so; to alleviate
suffering, to the extent of
one's ability; to be an instrument of
" ? ? J "U ^TT'AVOn omol 1 t/\

one's fellow-m^n; to do what one can
in a work second in importance to
none in the eyes of the Great Physician,
is no small matter. And, on the
other hand, when one has the ability
to do these things, and refuses when
the opportunity presents itself, it is
no small matter.
Money and service given in a cause
of this kind are not money and service
lost. It is an investment which will

ages and through eternity.
Ringing with the power breathed into

"And whosoever shall give to drink
unto one of these little ones a cup of
cold water only in the name of a disciple,
verily I say unto you, he shall
in no wise lose his reward."
A contemporary printed the picture
of a cashier of a bank. The man's
face was not shown at all,, only the
back of his coat being visible. Gee,
he must be a good looking man.?Anderson
He is, both coming and going, or
from any view.
The Watchman and Southron, and
any other papers under the same impression,
are mistaken in supposing
that the story we carried about the
Felder letters came out of the report
now on file with Gov. Blease. If the

that a report was made to the 1912

other day. The matter was gleaned
from an official report already printed
in book form. That the other papers
Jet us get ahead of them is their mis
fortune and not our fault. We know
why some papers would not have
printed those letters even had they
seen them.?Anderson Intelligencer.
The Anderson Intelligencer has been
printing and the Watchman and South
ron has been talking about ancient
history. The Herald and News published
all these letters, affidavits and
testimony from the report of the dispensary
commission, and the finding
of the commission on this and other
matters, in its issues of January 30
and February 2. When we saw all
this matter featured in the Intelligencer.
we wondered if the Intelligencer
had been asleep or was establishing
a department of ancient history. And
when other newspapers got to discussing
it as something new our wonder
THE TEACHEB AND THE STATE.
In a strong and thoughtful editorial,
the News and Courier calls attention
to the small salaries paid our teachers
and the comparative neglect of secondary
For many years The Herald and
News has been urging that a people's
first duty is to the common schools,
where the masses receive, or should
receive, the rudiments of an education.
If a State is to have an intelligent citizenship,
Aere must be adequate common
We are not opposing our higher institutions*
of learning. We would not
bave one of them that has been built
torn down. We would have some of
them, supported by the State, conducted
more economically, in view of the
fact that the common schools, the

comparatively and relatively, a mere
pittance, and are forced to struggle
along as best they may on the support
which they receive.
We need improved common schools,
j we need higher salaries for the com|
mon school teachers, securing the best
teachers possible, and we need compulsory
education. The teacher in the
r?r?mmnn schools of the present is ex
erting an influence which will be felt
largely and directly upon the citizenship
of the future. The wonder is that
with the salaries that are paid, we
are able to secure as good teachers as
i We desire to reproduce in these columns,
with our hearty endorsement,
the editorial in the News and Courier
above referred to: '
"If it happens that our form of government
proves a failure, and Mr.
Roosevelt says that it has already so
proved, it is probable that the historian
of the future will find a cause
for it in the lamentably small salaries
paid to teachers and in the comparative
neglect of secondary schools. The
essential thing in a Republican form
of government is the intelligence and
education of the citizens. Government
merely reflects the State of mind
of the people. If they can be fooled
and readily deceived it is but a matter
of time before the demagogues are in
anH thp transition from dema
gogue to dictator is the matter of a
"One has but to consider the names
of the great men of the nation to draw
i up an indictment of our schooling system.
A very large proportion of our
best lawyers, our best statesmen, our
best professional men of all classes,
*were at one time teachers, and they
would have continued to be teachers
had the future held any promise of
financial reward or even of real honor.
But one by one the brainiest men have
been forced into other fields of endeavor.
The policy is fatuous but it continues.
In every State of the Union
are seer struggling teachers earning
wages far below those given the bricklayer.
Particularly true is this in the
i secondary schools, the very heart of
I our educational system.
"One reason for this is that philanthropists
continue to endow colleges
but few seem to give any attention to
the secondary schools. When a man
has a good secondary education he can
complete his own equipment The
average high school student of today
has received almost as much training
as the average college student of a
century ago. Yet the number of endowed
secondary schools ?an be counted
on the fingers. Not only are they
not endowed, but in most cases they
I are not adequately supported by the
! State. We have been making our educational
"Those who wonder at the marvellous
development of the Western
States might do well to consider that
they are many times more liberal in
j educational matters than are the oldier
commonwealths. Illinois has just

May 25, to enjoy Miss Carrie Buford's
school picnic. The picnic grounds are
situated in a large grove of giant oaks,
and this is in many respects an ideal
place for a picnic. Miss Buford, at
all times full of life and happiness,
did all she could to have the day pass
pleasantly and one could readily see
that every one present enjoyed themselves
to the fullest extent The dinner
was boundtiful and nicely prepared;
bearing testimony to the number of
well-filled pantries and good cooks in
the "Shack" community.

Misses Ida Smith and Lula Johnson
and Messrs. Tom Johnson and E.
