It was truly a gala occasion for the
people of this community.
The exercises at the school were
held on and around the foundation of
the new building. Crowds of children

which served as a platform for the
speakers and masters of ceremonies,
and about there was assembled the
large audience of attentive and appre
Prof. H. A. C. Walker, orincipal of
the school, presided over the meeting
and introduced the speakers.
At 12 o'clock the exercises were be

Rev. Porter, pastor of the Presbyterian
church. Thereupon the Masons, who
performed the ceremony of placing the
stone, marched in upon the platform
and proceed with their usual and
beautiful ritual, used upon all ocoa
sions of this nature.
In these services Summerton Lodge,
A. F. M., was assisted by visiting Ma
sons from Sumter, Manning and For

Mood conducted the part of the service
performed by the Masons.

examination and rendered this verdict:
"I have tried and proved this stone by

well formed, true and trusty." After
the usual addinglof"the corn of nourish

Worshipful Master Mood addressed the
assemblage on the significance of the
DR. MOOD S REMARKS.
He said in part: "Friends and broth
ers: I beg to announce in the presence

ful Masons bound by solemn oath to
plan and erect beautiful buildings for

ad to serve faithfully the Great Archi

erse. It is our duty and wish, so far
s in us lies, to carry on the great work

our great example. His omnipotent

sent them bounding into space: and all
the beauty of star, moon and sun is His
andiwork. The Great Architect laid
the first corner stone, and upon it

owing this example and it is fitting on
this 10th of May, Memorial Day, when
our minds turn back to review the
glories of the past, to turn them to the
future also. Today we provide for
our children, the men and women of
the days to come."' Dr. Mood has a
eculirly pleasant and forceful man
ner of address, and his short but clear
cut speech m:ade profound impression.
This concluded the services by the
asons and Prof. Walker again as
ued direction of the program. It was
here that he announced with many re
grets the inability of Prof. W. H.
Eand to be present as was expected.
ADDRESS BY PROF. CLINKSCALES.
The Rev. J no. Kershaw, rector of
the Episcopal church, then introduced
the speaker of the morning, Prof. Jno.
G. Clink-scales, of the Wofford College
faculty. This eminent educator is
known throughout the State and en
joys an enviable reputation as a lec
turer on educational subjects. He pos
sesses a style altogether his own, a
covicting genuineness and seasonable
wit withal!. His hearers were attentive
in the extreme, despite the heat and
discomfiture of position. The theme of
his address was congratulations upon
the step taken thus far in the estab
lishment of a high school, which is the
crying need in the Southern education
After drawing a most vivid compari
son between the condition of our coun
try during President Washington's ad
ministration and the present time, the
speaker declared that the North had
forged far ahead of the South in all
lines of progress and especially in the
matter of money-making. "All the
money is in the North," declared he,
"and it is still going there. It is per
petual motion-this flow of the dollars
into Northern coffers."
Prof. Clink-scales then gave his opin
ion on the cause of these conditions.
He said: "The North is not ahead of
the South because of superior brain ca
pacity, nor because they were victors
in a great civil strife; it is because they
have spent more time and more money
in the education of their children than
the people of the South. No sooner
had the Pilgrim fathers landed on the
rocky and bleak coasts of Maine than
they began the erection and institution
of schools. That is the secret of their
superiority, -they 'put their money in
the brains of the youth and today we
see its results. As an example of
Northern thrift and advancement.I
would direct you to the patent office in
Washington, The State that has spent
the most money for education leads in
the number of patents granted. In
stead of putting our money into the
training of our children, we put it into
cotton mills: they invested in brain
stock. the cotton mills followed quick
ly andl their dividends have been great
"My friends'" declared the speaker
with emphasis, "the realization of the
value of a child is the secret of a comn
muty's success. Let cotton mills
alone; they are doubtful blessings un
less child value has been properly ap
preciated. Invest your capital in mind
culture and the cotton mills and other
industries will follow quickly enough.
The real value and everlasting glory of
any community consists not in its man
ufacturing enterpises, not in its broad
acres, nor in its commercial interests,
Ibut in the quality of its men and
women- This school building, which
today you are erecting, will be worth
more to your town, to the community
and even to the world than a dozer
cotton mills. Develop these boys and
girls, for some day they will go out
int the world to aeet their infiuncn
for either good or bad; to either eu
noble or to degrade."
Prof. Clinkscales urged the peOP1
to establish a high school, citing th'
glowing example of German's big

THE SCHOOL BUILDING.
10 may be appropriato to stato Jus
here that the building now In th
course of erection is the result-of grea
and noble effort by Prof. H. A. C
Walker, Messrs. Scarborough, Lan
ham and Rutledge, of the board o
trustees; and a number of fine spirited
enterprising citizens. The movemen1
was begun in March of last year, whei
the district was bonded for $12,000 an<
a special tax of 5 mills was levied. Thi
vote was taken and opposition to the
scheme numbered only one. Prof. Wal
ker deserves a great deal of credit foi
his part in the development of Sum
merton in 1897, upon graduation fron
Wofford, be organized the school at
this place. Previous to that, there was
not a brick store or building in th
town; now there are nearly thirty and
only one or two frame store houses. I
seems a clear examplification of Prof
Clinkscales theory, viz, "invest it
schools and other things follow." The
people here are proud of their town,
and well they might. be-it is destined
to be a city of importance, the home of
culture and refinement as well as ma
terial high standing.
The school building now in the
course of erection is to be a handsome
two-story edifice, costing approxima
tely $15,000. The material used in
building is the latest improved con
crete; this is being manufactured on
the premises and with the sand from
the excavation The building will be
heated by a modern furnace and fitted
up with other conveniences. There will
eight classrooms, superintendent's
office, lady teacher's room, boy's read
ing room, girl's reading room, and an
auditorium with modern opera chairs,
and large stage. This building, when
completed, will be one of the best and
handsomest of its kind to be found in
any of our small towns.
The teachers who will go into the
building to take charge at the opening
of the next session are:
H. A. C. Walker, principal; Miss
Inez Felder, Miss Lida Scarborough,
Miss Jane Felder, Miss Cora Collins.

Dr. Mood's Address.
We regret exceedingly our inability
to do justice to the "doings" at Sum
merton last Friday, sickness prevents,
but the account of another is published
elsewhere. We were, however, so im
pressed with the beauty of the remarks
made by Worshipful Master, Dr. W.
R. Mood, that we requested a synopsis,
which is as follows:
"Men and brethren, here assembled,
be it known unto you, that we be law
ful Masons, true and faithful to the
laws of our country, and bound by
solemn obligations to erect magnificent
uildings, to be serviceable to man
kind, and to fear God, the Great Archi
ect of the Universe.
We have among us, concealed from
the eyes of all men, valuable secrets,
which cannot be divulged and which
have never been found out; but these
secrets are lawful and honorable and
are not repugnant to the laws of God
r matn. They were intrusted in peace
nd honor to the Masons of ancient
times, and having been faithfully trans
mitted to us, it is our duty to convey
them unimpaired to the latest posteri
ty. Their beginning is extinguished
in the night of bygone ages, but if our
craft were not good and our calling
onorable, we should not have lasted
through so many thousands of years,
nor should we be honored with the pat
ronage of so many illustrious men in all
ges and in every clime, who have
eer shown themselves ready to pro
mote our interests and to protect us
from all adversaries.
We are assembled here today before
you all, to lay the foundation of a
building which we pray God may de
serve to prosper by becoming a place
of concourse for good men and women,
and by promoting intelligence, har
mony and brotherly love throughout
the world, till time shall be no more.
The origin of the custom of laying
the corner stone of a house is lost in the
labyrinth of time We know that it
was followed when man's ambition
projected the Pyramids of.Egypt; when
his growing intelligence. began tne
hanging gardens of Babylon, when his
soaring genius chiseled the master
pieces of Greek and Roman architec
ture, which have successfully chal
lenged the admiration and skill of
every succeeding age to surpass them;
but for the first authentic allusion tc
the laying of a corner stone, we must
point you to that Book, one of the
three great lights of Masonry, it
which is written: "Then the Lord
answered Job out of the whirlwind and
said, who is he that darkeneth counsel
by words without knowledge? Gird u.1
now thy loins like a man, for I wil.
demand of thee and answer thou me;
Where wast thou when I laid the
foundations of the earth? declare ij
thou hast understanding: whereupor
are the foundations thereof fastened.
or who laid the corner stone thereof,
when the morning stars sang together
and all the sons of God shouted for joy.'
We remember with feelings of awful
solemnity that these same stars, great
as Arcturns and Orion and the Pleides,
are still shining in their courses
clear and young as when first noted
by the shepherd on the plains of Glim
So today we have but feebly imita
ted the act of the Great Goemetriciar
and Architect of the Universi
under whose omnipotent touch crea.
tion rose in gradational grandeur ani
with sublimest method, until finishei
worlds rolled from their creator's fin
gers and began the run of their eter
Brethren and fellow countrymen: I1
seems to me peculiarly appropriate
that on this Memnorial day, while lov
ing hands all over this broad country
are decorating the graves of our deat
heroes, and while their living com
rades are being honored in every loya
and patriotic heart, that we, gathering
inspiration from the memory of theil
gallant deeds, and heroic selfsacrifice
turn our thoughts to the future, to the
welfare of our country in the bette>
education of our children, in, the up
lifting of mankind, that the citizens o
coming time may measure fuliy up, t~
the standard of their responsibihities
That we learn to
"Work for the good that is nighest
Nor dream of greatness afar,
For that glory is ever the highest,
That shines upon men as they are."
