Bennottsvillo Wants Clinton College.
Since the action of the board
of trustees ol' the Presbyterian
College ol' South Carolina, in the
matter of the possible removal of
that institution from Clinton,
several towns of the state have
manifested a desire to secure it.
lt is a prize worth having-as
an up lifting agency in the pro
gress of any town, and as a pay
ing investment, worth every ef
fort made to get it. A strong
desire to secure it for Bennetts
ville was manifestad in tin on

location of such an institution in
the town a committee was ap
Jjointed, and subscriptions of
.110,000 raised along with a ten
der of ten acres of land in the
most desirable part of town.
Too much cannot be said in
praise of the move, but it will
not do to stop short of a sum
sutllcient to insure it. Other
towns want it too, and the best
oller gets the prize. If the re
moval of tlie college has been
definitely decided upon, then let
every expedient, be employed to
get it, nor let exertions cease till
all expedients fail to secure this
prize for Bennettsville.

Carefully examine into every
detail of your business.

to last and the young man who
will follow them is bound to suc

to, but success never comes easy.
