THE CLOSING OF A SUCCESSFUL YEAR
A FINE ADDRESS.
The Institute hall was filled to
its utmost capacity Monday
evening for the graduating exer
cises. Rev. R. L. Grier opened
with a fervant prayer, after
which Mr. Louis Appelt intro
duced the speaker, Hon. E. H.
Aull, the President of the South
Carolina Press Association, who
delivered a well prepared ad
dress wnich was received with
much pleasure by the large
audience. Mr. Aull took for his
subject. "Universal Education,"
and throughout his entire dis
course he was given the most
wrapt attention. It might be
well to state here that Mr. Aull
has always taken a deep interest
in the cause of education, having
been a school- teacher himself,
and whenever and wherever the.
occasion offered he has mani
fested a desire to improve our
school system. When a member
of the Legislatureit was he who
conceived the idea of libraries
for the common schools, and it
was he who introduced the bill,
and passed to success the presedt
law, making it possible for every
public school to be equipped
with a library with the aid of
the State.
We publish his address with
great pleasure, because there is
in it much food for thought.
UNIVERSAL EDUCATION.
-"The-question for the nation
is not how much labor it em
ploys, but how much life it pro
duces. There is no wealth but
life-life including all its powers
of love, of joy and of admiration.
That country is richest which
nourishes the greatest number
of noble and happy human be
ings; that man is richest who
having perfected the functions
of his .owh life to the utmost,
has also the widest helpful in
fluence, both personal and by
- means of his posessions over the
lives of others." This sentiment
was uttered by a political econo
- .mist of great prominence more
than a half century ago. It is
as true today as it was then.
How much life do we produce?
~'Not simply animal life, but that
life which 'has aspirations and
ambitions, that life which is of
the soul and looks into the fu
ture and has feelinig and lives;
that-is influenced by greats mo
tives and that thinks noble
thoughts. Greatness of charac
ter must come from greatness of
motive..
-It is a recognized fact by every
~State in this union and by every
civilized nation upon the face of
the earth that the wealth of the
State or the nation and happi
ness of its people depend upon
universal education and enlight
merit.
With one voice all history
proclaims that the power and
capacity of man as a wealth pro
ducer is in proportion to his
education and training.
When the Pilgrim fathers
landed at Plymouth ISock, the
first thing they did was to build
~church and prepare to worship
God according to the dictates of
their consciences. Along side
i~he church they builded a school
house and made preparation for
the education and training of
their children. This has been
the policy of Massachusetts even
to the present day, and as a re
suit, -the illiteracy among the
people is less than one per cent
while with us it is over eighteen
per cent of the native white pop
ulation. And yet we have not
been ammindful of this important
-factor in our growth and devol
ment as a State, for back in the
colonial dags we find Judge
Pringle in charging the jury
urging good seminaries of learn
* ing, "which are greatly encour
aged and attended with much
-success in some of our northern
- colonies, the want of which here
lays this colony under many dis
advantages and inconveniences."
He hoped that our legislature
would think it necessary and for
the welfare of the colony to erect
public schools for the poor peo
/ple, the want of which he
thought "hid been in great
measure responsible for ,the
riots, disturbances and commo
tions that had happened in many
places." And all along through
the early history of the States
schools were provided for the
podr. By the constitutions of
1868 and 1895 we provided -pub
lie schools for all the children of
the State.- In the beginning of
the 19th, century we builded the
South Carolina college, and fol
lowing this were the denomina
tional colleges, the Citadel,
-Clemson and Winthrop, and it
would seem that we had done
what we could for the education
of our people, and yet there is
much more to be done.
We are realizing now as never
before that it is as necessary to
have the trained integllect in other
than what is known. as the learn
ed pressins, and in fact,
many of the best trained men
ire being drawn into the ser:ice
af our corporations and large
commercial enterprises because
the compensation is so much
greater. The tendency is, I
fear, too much towards the
amassing of great wealth as the
ideal to be accomplished. It is
developing rather the modern
Pagan than that citizenship
which is the highest type of civ
ilization-the modern Pagan
whose only aim is greed of gold.
President Shearman of Cor
nell, some while ago when asked
what he considered the greatest
danger of the f0th century, re
plied: "I fear most the exalta
tion, worship and pursuit of
money as the foremost good of
life. The salt that may save us
from this blight is to be found
in our schools and churches in
every union for a righteous cause
and mnost of all in the ideals and
aspirations of the noble soul who
will not suffer human 'society to
degenerate into a mere brutish
struggle of life and the sur
vival of the fittest."
"Of all that walk the world today,I hold
That man the lowest of the pagan breed
Whose body is a soulless house of greed,
Whose heart is but a hardened mould,
Who worships but an idol wrought of
gold
An idol fashioned out of human need
Who concentrates his life to this one
creed,
"Get riches though men's very blood
be sold."
The starving poor-what reeks he of
their woes?
And what to him the bitter cry of pain
Of all that bleed beneath oppression's
rod?
No lily speaks to him.no climbing rose:
He harkens only to the voice of gain
And grips in clammy palms his yellow
God."
In a recent article, Gov.Mickey,
of Nebraska, says: "There are
many moral issues confronting
the American people today, but
in my opinion the greatest of
these is greed of gold. This is
really the fountain head of most,
if not all of the great moral is
sues, and the cause for their ex
istence can usually be traced to
the great desire for personal ag
grandizement or accumulation of
wealth.
"The desire to make money is
not in itself an issue, for we have
Scriptural admonition to be dili
gent and not slothful in business,
but it becomes a moral issue
when the desire is prompted by
an evil motive, or the means em
ployed to acquire it are question
able or unlawful.
"The fact that a vast number
of our people are filled with an
abnormal greed for riches and
have an all-consuming desire to
make money regardless of prin
ciple, is evidence enough that
this question is decidedly a mor
al one- Wealth is being hoard
ed up, not for the good that it
can do humanity, but for the
power that it represents-power
to be used for selfish ends, for
poltical preferment, and oft
times for purposes inimical to
good government.
"It is greed for gold that makes
the president of a bank risk his
dpositors' savings on the Board
of Trade; it is greed for gold
that causes the loaning~ of large
amounts of trust funds upon
worthless securities; and it is
greed for gold that prompts the
officers of an insurance company
to use their reserve fun'ds for
personal gain."
To appropriate and paraphrase
the words of another.
Nations and States and coun
tries are made by men and not
by written constitutions or 'pa
per ballots; or, if you please, by
the, wealth which they have piled
up. We are not free be
cause we have a constitution
or the ballot, or be ca us e
we have accumulated large
wealth. We are free because
our fathers, who crossed seas
and subdued and cleared the wil
derness and defied kings and po
tentates were freemen. It was
in their veins, their very blood
pulsated with it. It was the
training and tutelage of gener
ation on generation beyond the
waters; the evolutionof centuries
of struggle and sacrifice.
This has sometimes been call
ed the young man's age. It is
an age for the man or woman
who can do things and do them
well. The price demanded is
that you must excel in your par
ticilar line and the question of
age will not be raised.
Pierpont Morgan is seventy,
and it is said that he achieved
his greatest financial victories
after he was 50. Senator Pettus,
of Alabama, is eighty-five; Sen
ator Morgan, of Alabama is
eighty-two; Allison, of Iowa, is
seventy-seven;-Proctor, of Ver
mont, is seventy-five; Frye, of
Mae,seventy-four; Cullon.of Il
linois, is seventy-seven. So you
see these leaders of thd senate
and of finance are young and
vigorous and strong at ages be
yond the allotted years of men.
This is the golden age of the
world when men and women
count who can do things. It is
strenuous and commercial to a
degree, but you fetch the price
you are worth today, tomorrow
and every day you can make
good. Your every act will be
brought under "the fierce light
that beats upon a throne," anid
you will be judged by your own
merits.
No country and no age has
ever been wanting for a hero.
Mankind owes its progress to
this fact and it owes its hope for
the future to the fact that it will
never lack its heroes when the
times demand them.
The educational needs of this
state are first, more money for
the schools,and then there could
be better pay for the teachers
and longer terms for the chil
dren.
Second, our system of educa
tio is not properly articulatede.
It needs to have the gap filled
between the common and giad
ed schools and the college. Thp
high school is a necessity in our
educational system. So that the
college may do away with the
preparatory or fitting school.
Not only is this true, but we do
need to support our common
school more liberally. And then
we need a law to compel the at
tendance of the children upon
the schools. \#e need to remem
ber that the child has rights
which even the parent must re
spect. The state owes it to the
future citizens of the 'common
wealth to see to it. that the
schools are provided and that
the children are required to at
tend. South Carolina has done
more than is really her duty in
the support of higher institu
tions. As a matter of fact my
opinion is when the State has
furnished the three primals,
reading, riting and rithmatic it
has discharged its duty. And
yet in the matter of education
the ordinary mode of construc
seems to be reversed and in or
der to lay our educational struc
ture on broad and substantial
foundation we must build the
capstone first. No country has
ever had a strong and healthy
system of public schools which
did not build and nourish a sys
tem of higher institutions of
learning. The good common
school is not possible where
there is not liberal support of
the university
But the need of our State to
dayris better common schools and
high schools. Not more of them
we have plenty such as they are.
We need rather to consolidate.
We now pay from all sources
about $300,000.000 forthe higher
education of some 1,500 white
boys and girls besides what it
HON. E. H. A.ULL.
cost them. Our State Constitu
tion says the State MAY sup
port the colleges, but it SHALL
support liberally a system of
public schools.
In 1900 in South Carolina there
were 127,396 native white voters
of whom 15,711 could not read
or write. 12.3 per cent. In 1880
the white population ten years
of age and over was 265,356, of
whom 59,415 were illiterate, 22.4
per cent.
In 1900 the white population
ten years of age and over was
399,540, of whom 54.375 were il
literate, 13.6 per cent. It will
be seen that the illiteracy in ten
years has been decreased 8.8 per
cent. Daring the same period
the negro had decreased in illit
eracy from 78.5 per cent to .52.8
per cent, or a total of 25.7 per
cent. These figures teach their
own lesson.
Next to Virginia we had' de
Icreased our illiteracy less than
any other southern state. The
average length of our country
schools is 109 days and the aver
age yearly salary of. our teach
ers, $136.25, in 1903 and 1904. I
saw it stated some where that in
the city of Washington they paid
the dog catcher $1,500.00 a year,
while the average pay of the
graded school teacher is .only
$500.00 a year. The average pay
to the public school teacher in
this State including all of them,
$195.00 per year. Your carpen
ter, your farm laborer, your mill
superintendent, your convict
guard, your every kind of labor
er almost receives more money
than your public school teachers.
Why, I heard a gentleman say
not long ago that he knew a man
who re~ceived $1,500.00 a year
for training pointer dogs. And
yet there is no great demand for
increased pay to the workmen
and workwomen who are charg
ed with the training and educa
tion of immortal souls and the
future citizens and mothers of
the State. Can you expect them
to become skilled? Can we ex
pect them to devote thieir life to
this work at such pay? What we
need is to consolidate our schools
and pay our teachers more mon
ey and demand the very best
talent. My plea is for universa]
education and for more senti
ment and less comnmercialisin.
Every child is entitled to the
very best we can give it, and
that training that begets high
and pure and noble motives.
Philips Brooks has truly said
"that the poorest, most helpless
infant is not accident merely,
but a plan of God. Destined to
do a definite work in the uni
verse. It is a part of the divine
plan of creation and as such, de
serves to be trained for the
work." This, it seems to me, is
the fundamental argument for
uniersal education-that every
ebifil has a right to a chance in
life because God made him and
made him to do something. It is
a duty which each parent and
each guardian owes to the child
under his care. It is the duty
which each citizen of the com
munity as a good citizen owes to
the community to give his per
sonal efforts to the cause of pub
lic education and if he fails in
the performance of'-his duty as
a parent or a guardian or citizen
of th e ommnunity hea is .o'nilty of
a social and parental breach of
trust.
Thoinas Jefferson said in speak
iig as an advocate of universal
education, 'the object is to bring
into action that mass of talent
that lies buried in poverty in
every country for want of the
means of developing and thus
giving activity to a mass of mind
which in proportion to our pop
ulation shall be the double or
treble of what it is in most.coun
tries." Thd information of the
people at large can only make
them the safe as they are the
sole depository of our political
and religious freedom.- A re
public is possible. says Napo
leon. only to a people of high in
telligence and high character.
My plea is a plea for training.
It is training that we need. The
acquiring of ideas that can be
used when the occasion requires
it. and the ability to use them.
The athlete goes into training
and lifts heavy weights not that
he may be able to run a pile
driver or lift a derrick, but that
his muscles may be strength
ened and he may be able to win
the race and lift heavier weights
anywhere and everywhere when
ever the occasion requires it.
"We wish to make sensible,
industrious and thrifty men and
women able to meet all the emer
gencies of life, to deal justly and
rightly with social and industrial
questions. To this end we need
cool, keen intellect and tender
consciences and a habit of
thinking."
In education we need to sup
press the bad and the evil ten
dencies and to bring out, train
and develop the best that is in
us. That life is richest that
is in us. The life is richest that
gives out the most and is the
most helpful to other lives.
The highest ideal to'which the
State or the nation can reach
must be attained by the individ
ual citizen. Then it follows that
we must educate and develop and
train and lift up the citizen, and
in proportion we lift up and ele
vate and magnify the State. The
power and strength of our gov
ernment does not vest in kings
and potentates, but in the virtue
and moral sentiment of the peo
ple who are the sovereigns.
My plea to you then is, I re
peat. for universal education, for
as we lift up and elevate the peo
ple we strengthen the govern
ient.
The wealth of the State is not
in the products of the soil, its
manufacturing enterprises and
industrial growth and develop
ment, but in the intellectual and
moral strength of its citizens.
It is then the duty of the State
to fit the individual citizen to
understand and apply the prin
ciples that ought to control a
free people and to exercise his
right as a sovereign.
About eighty per cent of our
people dwell in the rural dis
tricts. But for the-young and
vigorous. pure blood, which
comes from the country to the
town our large cities and towns
would deteroriate and decay.
The history of -all civilization
plainly teaches that the greatest
calamity which could befall a
nation is the deterioration or the
destruction of its bold peasantry.
The tendency for the last few
years to leave the country for
the town and city is not a good
omen for the stability of our- in
stitutions., The chief cause for
this unrest in the country-- is to
be found'in the lack of those
things in the country which go
to make like pleasant and hap
py. The school, the church,
good roads, the social inter
course. I want the slogan of this
generation to be: "Back to the
farm young man." Remember
that science as applied to the
farm, the garden and the forest
has as splendid a dignity as as
tromony; that it may work just
as many marvels and claim as
high an order of talent. If I had
some. magic gifts to bestow, it
would be to impress upon the
youth of our land this truth."
In the forty years since the
greatest war of ancient and
modern times, we have had a
revolution greater than any rev
olution of blood. The old South
had a civilization peculiarly her
own and one the like of the equal
of which the world has' never
seen. It produced the highest
type of the true and patriotic
citizen and he lived on his plan
tation in ease and luxury and
had time and inclination to de
vote to the study of literature
and the science of government.
Times have changed and we have
met the changed conditions like
men, and with a fortitude and
bravery worthy of our ancestors.
There is a great future for the
South, and for South Carolina.
We must not forget the tradi
tions of the past. -We must not
become too strenuous and too
Icommercial -that we have not the
time to contemplate and study
and reverence the deeds of hero
ism and valor of our ancestors,
for by this, and this alone, can
we keep alive that love of liber
ity and freedom which are neces
sary to make the triue patriot
afid without patriotism, which is
but another name for love of
home, we can never produce the
true citizen which makes the
great State. Lord Burke uttered
a great truth when he said:
"They will never look forward
to their posterity who never
look backward to their ances
tors."
Let us do what we can for the
universal education of our boys
and girls. Many a bright flower
of intellect may waste its sweet
ness on the desert air because
it has had no opportunity to
bless mankind. Many a gem of
purest ray serene may lie in the
depths of the ocean because we
have negltdto earc.h for it
and give it the opporthity tc
which it is entitled.
When we havE done our duty
to the bright boys and girls of
this Southland, we have done
our part towards advancing the
future glory of our cornmon
wealth. Let us do our duty not
only in these things, but in de
fending the honor of our State
and in keeping her escutcheon
clean, and this we must begin
in the school room and in thE
common schools of our State.
Remember it is our country
yours and mine-and we should
all be jealous of her honor and
her integrity.

THE SCHOOLS SHOUL.D BE FINANCED.
There should not be any neces
sity for our people to dividt
themselves up into special schoo
districts in order for their chi]
dan to have the advantage of
primary education, but we inns
face conditions as they exis
and not content ourselves wit]
what should not be. The fac
that those in control of our gov
emnent misappropriate ,th<
funds promised for school pur
poses, and the schools do -no
get their just share of the publis
funds is a great cause for on:
people to ponder, and ask them
selves, how can the condition b<
remedied? There is no gain

schools is either not. Ogiven t<
those schools, or it is -unjustl3

the people must burden them

or suffer their-children to grov

We said there should not b<
any necessity for special schoo

not be any necessity for an3
special taxes for school pur

can be demonstrated easily by

Summerton News. MI
Special to The Manning Times: 4
The events of the past few days have
been of much interest to our town.
The closing exercises of the graded
school commenced Wednesday evening.
The building was filled to overflowing.
Rev. R. A. Sublett introduced that
distinguished educator, Dr. E. M.
Poteat, of Fui-man University, who
delivered a most learned faddress, not
withstanding his entire remarks were
directed to the childeen. It was a
most earnest and impressive talk, and
I think the boys and girls will profit YZ
greatly by the discourse. {t
The distinguished visitor and others
were the guests of Col. 0. C. Scar- p1
borough at his hospitable home, and I
but voice the sentiment of all our peo
ple when I say that we were all de- 12
lighted with Doctor Poteat's visit.
On Thursday Summerton and Port
er's cadets. of Charleston, crossed bats. S]
Well, the Charleston children were
light-wei-hts, and of course got most
woefully licked. The game reminded Iil
me of a prize-fighter in a slugging
match with an inmate of an infirmarv.
While this game was going on Mr. T. fl
L. McLeod, of Manning, accompanied el
by a young lady, had a very narrow
escape ofserious injury. His handsome Ul
pair of black horses became frightened
by stepping on a weak board on a ditch
bridge, ran and broke loose from the ff
buggy. Mrs. Barden very heroically
attempted to stop the animals to save
some children, and she was herself _(
thrown down, and only by a miracle
was unhurt. The, excitement for a
while was intense, but we are thank
ful to say but little' damage was done.
The game went on and resulted in a
score of 18 to 2, in favor of Summerton. 15
Friday Summerton went to Manning
and put the blocks.to the professionals.
Score, 8 to 9, and the second nine, re
mained at home and whipped the
hound out of the Porter boys; turned
them -out into outer darkness and gave
them a score of 7 to 0 to carry "bok to
Cha'aston."
We are now beginning to think Man
ning is convinced that Summerton has
