The Newberry Herald and News, tremendously
Dleased over the re-election
of Governor Blease, whose cause it has
championed for years is congratulating
everybody and everything that contributed
to that event. We want to say
that while The Herald and News has
been an outspoken champion of its
friend, the governor, at all times, it
has all the while conducted itself as a
clean, self-respecting newspaper, and
if it has done anything to lower itself
in the estimation of fair minded' people,
we are unable to recall the circumstance.
It has fought long, hard
and fair, and has continued to be a
newspaper all the while. And it gives
us pleasure to say that the Newberry
Observer, which fought on the other
side, is also entitled to equal credit for
the cleanness and fairness of its conduct,
in the most trying ordeal through
which any two rival South Carolina
newspapers have had to pass for years.
The Herald and News appreciates
the co-operation of the managers of
election in giving the results of the
first primary in Newberry county, and
asks their assistance again in th" sec
ocd primary on next Tuesday. Please
give us the results in State and county
races as early as possible after the
votes are counted. Tli3 phone nun>

seems to be inexhaustible.
Gov. Blease acted properly and wisely
in not dispatching the militia to
North Augusta upon the appeal made
to him. The sheriff could have found
deputies to assist him.?Anderson
Under conditions as we are able to
gather the facts, ordering out the
militia would have been productive of
much more harm than good.
The Herald and News publishes to
day a detailed description of the "capita!
to Piedmont" highway, the description
being prepared by the department
of agriculture. It will be observed
that in the distances there is a jump
from 36 miles at Prosperity to 60 at
Newberry. Unless Prosperity is put
down as on a direct route, and the
Newberry distance is taken on some
other route, this must he a mistake, as
it is only about seven miles from Newberry

; But the question is will Blease allow
| peace? He never has yet; in fact his |
political suceess has depended on ! '
keeping alive strife and bitterness, in !
arraying class against class and keeping
alive prejudice and factionalism.
If the Blease people want peace (and
certainly they should, as they are
victors) let them prove it .by their
words and actions. Above all, the
governor is the one to show whether
he desires it or not. If he will act so c
as to retain the respect of the people i

AVat^Iiman, What of the Future.
When statistics show that the aver-j
age school life of the North Carolina j
child is less than four years, it is time j
.that thinking people were beginning to j
sit up and take notice. The city super- j
* r * 1 !
| mtendent 01 a large cuy scuwu!
ly made his report in which he cited
the enrollment of boys from the primary
to the graduating class. An enrollment
of nearly three hundred was
reduced to nine in the finishing grade. ?
Fully seventy-five per cent, had drop- *
neH out before the sixth year. All kinds j
of explanation may be offered?the j j
commercializing of the age, etc. But' c
this does not suffice. The ease with j <
which a boy can secure a job in these j (
days may explain in part, but the root I 1
of the matter is deeper than that. The i \
public schools of this country have un- i
dertaken too much. They are proceed- 1
ing upon a false premise, and are there- j <
fore arriving at false conditions. The j ?
idea seems to be prevalent that the j J
public schools should prepare for col-j i
lege. The curriculum is arranged with j t
this inview. If there was five times the 1
amount of money at the command of s
j the different boards, such a course I
might find some defense, but until this <
becomes a fact, there is an imperative I
demand for modification of the present c
plans. Almost all citfes now have elev- i
en grades, requiring eleven years for ?
graduation. The last four grades are
small in comparison with the other.
They are the grades in which the most
expensive teachers are employed, the
salaries being nearly, if not fully, double
those paid for teachers in the under
grades. Thirty-five and forty dollars
are paid to the third, fourth and fifth
grade teacher while the eighth, ninth,
4 . ? ? f
tenth and eleventh grade teachers are \ k
drawing from seventy-five to one hun- 2
dred and seventy-five. The first named '
are trying to teach from forty-five to 1
sixty pupils while the upper rooms have \
an attendance of twenty to thirty. The 1
lower grade teacher has simply an op- c
portunity to hear lessons. Teaching is I
nro/?firo11v nitf nf th* niT^cttnn I ^
ory is the only faculty, to which appeal r
can be made. The pupil soon tires of ?
this humdrum, and stands ready at the v
age of ten to thirteen to throw up his
job and spend life in what promises *
mnrv fViincrc Wm or I- n r\ mm I e
v* v ^/iuvwviii ii v, aoa iiw i;iau
to take cur word for this. All we ask t
is that any one interested make an ex- ^
animation of the facts, study the sys- N
tem, consider the expenditure, and then ]
determine what is the duty of the State. 1
The report of the State superintendent c
?hows an average expenditure of one *
a*d 65-100 dollars for each child in the s
lower grades while for higher educa- ^
ticn the State of North Carolina is f
paying nearly two hundred for every j
pupil that attends its btate institutions
in addition to what the pupils themselves
have to pay.
The prime object of all government
is the greatest good to the greatest number.
It is therefore timely that the people
should consider. If the State would
reach the ideal in self government, this
great mass must receive the best possible
instruction in those things that
make for the highest citizenship. We
desire to be one to raise our voice in
their behalf. We plead for a better,
a more experienced teaching force for!
these lower grades. We plead for more
teachers and fewer pupils to the room.
Cut out your Greek, French, German, i
science, and ologies, and take the money
so used and devote it to the more prac- ~
tical things, that involve the daily life, 5
the earning of a livelihood. Cut out
the fads, and give us more arithmetic,
more grammar, better spelling. Instead 1
of the compulsory study of the dead
languages open up a business course
that will help to make bread winning a
less serious problem. Our schools have
been run long enough along the lines
of the politician. The crying demand is j
for statesmanship, men who will see!
things as they are, and frame their con- 1
j duct theceby. i he great masses are;
| waiting for some one to give them the
facts. Our schools are the hope of our '
State. It is the duty of every good man,' '
every thinking man, to study conditions.. We
have stated facts as they are. i 1

stands in the way. The future wel:are
of the State is calling for more

spending today can be more wisely ex)ended
