THE SECRET.
She had nio wealth of flowing tress.es;
She had no wondrou, store of tit: .
Ier hair and pilrse, the bard coifesses, ri
Were rathr thin.
She ha<1 no gonl-ensuaritng glanos, a
Aid Ii her che6k wis ne'er a dinple; t
She stirred io poet's errant fancies,
And looked half simple. a:
Bitt yet she won the hearts of all men,
And had more offers in a week
From good and bad, from short and le
tall men.
Than Famxe cani Speak.
You wionder, then, whit was her dower i
Well, I will try to tell you briefly; so
It was her taffy-giving power,
Foremost and chiefly.

Unreasonable Opposition.
sl
In announcing himself as a can- 1E4
didate for the Legislature, in New- tl
herry County Dr. S. Pope uses the
following language: W
"I am1 opposed to an appropria- u1
tion to the State University unless a
the standard is raised so as to
make it an institution giving a I
higher education than can lbe giv- a
en br our colleges, so that young f<
men graduating at sectarian and rs,
other colleges can then, if they de
sire, take a post-graduitate course 71
there. As it now is, it is a com pe- tI
ting and destroyinug agent to tile! N
different colleges in the State.'' I
This oposition is as ureason
nble as it is unjust, and we trust h)
will meet the sIame rebuke ii New- h
herry that it has 111(t ill Abbeville! I]
aid other counties. The Doctor )
is more cautious than somie who
have gone down triig to opposew
the sustaining of this gr1nd ld i
linstitution, and unkes :1 provti1.A)
t"iless the standard is raised." Ith
imust be remembered th a t t he ( (I
lege 1ha recently )ee re-establish
I and that the present corps of. T
professors commenced, as it were, <
:a new institution. It woul havet
been inpracticlable to connenice it
with the very high stainard of a.
te bellumI days or to itave required; t
the age and preparation of, other h1
o(1 '. i t .ittions but t hie standard M,
is gradually bein;; raisedl, and1( if h
the su iport of the ( S tatte, inl a year a.
orV two, it will againi become the
pride of all goodi people :iud thle
envy of all Jealous4 rivals.
