Winnsboro's Shame and South Car
Miss Mcl Dowell, whose death is men
tioned elsewhere in these columns left
to her only near relative a Mrs. Sloan,
a sister, who now lives in this place
alone and almost destitute. Mrs. Sloan
is a widow lady without children ot
near kin, old and very feeble, and ii
altogether a worthy subject of a liber
21l and christain charity. Particularly
does she merit the benevolence or as
sistance of the good people of Winsbo
vo, when It is remembered that she lost
her six and only boys in the Confeder
ate army during the late war. She las
given so much for the country. Will
the country give nothing in return?
Winsboro' News and Herald.
The above paragraph tells the whole
story of Confederate ingratitude to her
tioldiers,while it kindly throws the veil
over our excessive love for the negro,
which is expressed by the lavish expen
diitures which we nake for the educa
tion of his children. Winsboro has
couftributed per-hips, thousands of do)
Jars for negro education, while that
community neglects a poor old woman
who didl more for her country than did
the most famous Spartan mother.
Winnsboro boasts of her schools and
is proud of the enormous tax which she
levies for educational purposes, but she
lets an old woman, the mnother of six
Confederate soldiers, suffer for the~
common necessities of life. But no
matter for that, the "esteemed'' negro
must be educated. We must levy an
enormous tax'on the little liroperty of
Confederate soldiers to educate ne
gr~oes, and then dlistin~guished Southern
gentlemen must volunteer to go to
Washington, hat in hand, and beg fot
