WEDNESDAY, jWNE 19, 1889.
Wofford College had the best com
mencement this year, for a number of
years. There were sixteen graduates.
All the speeches were good. Wofford
is in a prosperous condition, and has
an excellent outlook.

or earthquake, or some other evil

South Carolina will undoubtedly
have a centennial about eighteen
months hence, probably Jan. 3, 1891,
which will be the centennial of the
first session of the legislature
in Columbia. Arrangements will be
made, and the Columbia centennial
will probably be the grandest in the
history of the State.

THE CENTENNIAL OF COLUMBIA.
A Suggestion to Celebrate the One Hun
dredth Anniversary of the Founding of
the State Capital.
As it is one hundred years this year since
the State records and government papers
were carried to Columbia, it would be ap
propriate, I think, to have a centennial
celebration in that city. This would be a
suitable year for such a celebration. It is
an off year in politics. It is also a year in
which some of our people are trying to re
vive an interest in our State history, and
then, as I stated above, it is one hundred
years since the State records were carried to
It was in March, 1786, that the Legisla
ture provided for the founding of Columbia.
At that time the land where it now stands
was owned by the distinguished Taylor fam
ily (one of whom was afterwards Governor
of the State.) The city was laid out in 1787,
and in January, 1790, the first Legislature
met there in a session that lasted half a
Such was the founding of Columbia.
Many are the historical memories connected
with the city. Theie, in May, 1791, Gen
eral .Washington was honored with a pub
lic dinner that was attended by a number
of ladies and gentlemen. It was there that
the Nullification Convention met in the No
vember of 1832. It was in the Baptist
church of that city and on December 18th,
1S60, that the famous Secession Convention
met; and it was in this same city that one
of the greatest acts of vandalism mentioned
in modern history took place in February,
1865. I refer to the burning of the city by
William Tecumseh Sherman.
Columbia is the home of the Hamptons-a
family that has been prominent in both the
political and military history of South Car
olina. It was there that the great orator,
William C. Preston, lived. It was there
that Horry, the Revolutionary patriot; James
H. Thornwell, the.great Presbyterian; Maxcy
Gregg. one of the knightliest of Carolina's
Confederate soldiers; Henry Timrod, the
American Tennyson, all lie buried. It is
in that city that Carolina's Governors reside
while filling this office. It was there that
Beverly Nash lived-he was the negro who
made Rutherford B. Hayes President of the
United States, and during the dark days of
Radicalism, Columbia was the home of Rob
ert B. Elliott, an unscrupulous but at the
same time one of the most brilliant negroes
that has ever lived in the United States.
It is in Columbia that the South Carolina
College stands. What a number of able men
have been connected with this institution as
instructors, and what a number of eminent
men can be numbered among its grad
At the unveiling of the Confederate mon
ument ten years ago last month one of Col
umbia's most eloquent and distinguished
citizens-the late 'en. John S. Preston-de
scribed in language simple and touching
how Columbia looked before it had been vis
itzd by the ravages of war:
"How beautiful the dear old town was,
with its quiet, deep shaded streets, its com
fortable, cheery looking houses, surrounded
by gardens bright with evergreens and gor
geo'is with flowers, redolent of nature's
sweetest incense. Its people happy, cheer
ful and busy in honest and prosperous toil.
We all knew each other and every one trust
ed his neighbor, and gentle charity waved
her wand and sceptre over us."
The city has recovered much of her old
time beauty. It is unquestionably the
prettiest place in South Carolina, and it is
pleasant to state that there is a steady growth
about the city which shows that it is not
going backward in the race of progress.
It is not my intention to give a sketch of
Columbia, my only aim is to impress on our
people that a centennial ought to be held in
the city. It is sincerely to be hoped that a
centennial worthy of the Palmetto State and
her beautiful capital city will be held there.
In speaking of the project, the Kews and
Mr. McDonald Furman's suggestion that
the onb hundredth anniversary of the es
tablishment of the State government at Col
umbia be celebrated will doubtless be re
ceived with favor by the people of the entire
State. This is a celebration ini which the
whole of South Carolna should take
and in which the publicsp

could be no better time than January next
to celebrate the centennial.of this historical
event. Charleston, we are sure, will be ready
to join with Columbia in an effort to make
the celebration in perfect keeping with the
ancient renown and classic dignity of South
Carolina; while every other city and town
in the State will contribute to the-success of
an enterprise which will illustrate the
growth and glory of our Commonwealth.
The centennial at Columbia ought to be
made much more than a public holiday. It
will afford an admirable opportunity for
'taking stock,' for comparing what we are
with what we were, for making an exhibi
tion of our material resources, of our pro
gress in the arts and sciences, in morals, in
literature and law. A centennial association
should be formed without delay at the State
Capital and the plans for the celebration
should be perfected with all possible dis
patch. The State Board of Agriculture
should be placed in charge of the indiistr-ial
features of the exposition, and the mer
chants, manufacturers and business men of

contribute to the success of the undertak

Altogether, it is a pitifal story that Mrs.
Chapin's friend tells about the condition of
the Soldier's Home at Hampton, Virginia,
where 2,700 Union veterans are supported
by the United States Government. Just
think of it-"eighty per cent. of the men
"drink to excess;" three of them have been
known to be fished out in one (lay from the
river into which they had tumbled while in
a tipsy condition, and they buy their whis
key at "a National saloo'n" licensed by the
Government and established at the Soldiers'
Home, so that the veterans can have their
liquor handy. But worse than this, on
pension days and pay days no passes are
issued to the veterans so that they can go
outside the gates; but the money is paid to
them and the National saloon gets its share
of the bounty given by a generous country
to its brave defenders. It is also worthy -of
note~that a National flag floats over the
About a month ago the Rev. J. P. Abbott,
of Medford, Massachusetts, preached a ser
mon on the liquor question, in the course
of which he said that "more men owed their
"disabilities to whiskey from the sutler's
"tent during the war than to shot and
"shell," and characterized a large propor
tion of the Grand Army of the Republic as
"whiskey-scarred and maimed veterans.'
The story that comes from the Soldiers'
Homie at Hampton appears to show that the
sutler's tent is accomplishing its work as
well in time of peace as it did in time of
war. -Setes and C'ourir.
Hammond on Ice Water.
Here are some of the charges the lively
Dr. William A Hammond brings against
the deadly ice pitcher: Its contents may
cause death if taken when the body is over
heated. A big drink of ice water is as bad
as a kick in the stomach. Anmeric-ans have
the poorest teeth of any people. -and ice
water is the cause of it. As to the stomach,
a whole chamber of horrors is created in its
insides by the ice water fiend. Ice water
causes confirmed dyspepsia. But that is
the least of its train of evils. It also pro
duces catarrh of the stomach. Nay, there
is reason to believe that it originaites cancer
of the stonjiach too. Americans are more
subject to that disease than other nations
are. Ice water lessens the heart's action.
It also impairs the sense of taste. And
once Dr. Hammond knew a fancy ice cold
soda fountain drink to be followed by a ter
rible ease of facial neuralgia.

The death of Dr. Andrew Simonds, which

be described as in any way a surprise to the

back that he was lying in a very critical
condition. But for all the warning of the
approaching end of Euffering, the death of
Dr. Simonds must strike the Charleston

veritable "paladin of finance."
Dr. Simonds was born in Abbeville coun

of his life is summed up in the history of
the First National Bank, of Charleston, the
affairs of which he has successfully conduct
ed for a quarter of a century, and the stock
of which to-day stands one hundred and
five per cent. above par, or at two hundred
and live dollars a share.

wealth, having amassed the bulk of it in the
