A MUIRSON COLLEGE'
(fur raith In Anderson College ls
stronger toduy thun ever. This ls an
Institution with a destiny. The weak
ness of one human will under so
much outside pressure assures us that
the mission of this college ls bet
ter understood in some quarters than
we had thought, and that the devel
opinent of this institution must 1> ? a
matter of concern to some.
The bushels or letters that have
poured in since .lt was announced that
the General Education board of the
United Slates was trying to get Prof
Hand back into the field work have
been so overwhelming in their ap
peals that Anderson Co Ile gc has' re
leased him from, the contract made
upon ttie tertns suggested by Mr.

the people ot thia state or they would

institution. The ttleld ".nd the future
of this college ls gre* cr than the
work In wbieh Mr, Hand ls engaged,
for it is organised and can take care
Tbe,nflpPle..fcn?e seen only one side
ot this , ?satten Thai elate at large
bas been led, no doubt, to look upon
Anderson College as a mer* collegl
atc Institution. Dui in all solemnity
we say io the people of the ?t?te that
Anderson College is coming, and
This coll?ge, founded by pluck)
people, is looking fur ahead. Tile day
will rome when South Carolina will
know Anderson fol loge in a better
and closer way. and the people of the
whole state will bc proud of the men

of tin' men, who ns trustees have

A ?Ui MAN
Some folks know thc real reason
of thu Bouw. li is Indeed unusual for
a snow storm on March 21, which is
the occasion of the vernal equinox,
the time fixed In the almanacs for the
beginning of spring. Bul the real
cause of thc disturbance is to pre
vent K. M Burnett, secretary of the
V. M. c. A from being sligted.
This winier Mr. Burnett has
brought to And? ?. a number of big
men and speakers of power, and it
seems that every time he has had bad
weather to test the endur.'. !?.>. and tin
gril ami to ?how the c irno-.tness of
n e peoph?. Ti e y have ?circ 'through
every lime. This will he no except
tion today. The court house will bc
filled to overflowing this afternoon
with a crowd of men eager to hear
tho great speaker who conies from
Hie mountains of Western North Ca
roi Ina, one greater than Vance in a
way, though he ls not Zeb Vance
Come out. men. and hear Jeter C.
Pritchard, thc boy who was so poor
that he never knew what are any

WO UK Ft) KTHEM
We wish to he understood fully in
our attitude toward the reunion. We
have been accused of what ls tanta
mount to boorishness-in referring to
certain invited guests with a degree
of lack of consideration. We would
not deny the sons of veterans of the
state any of tile hospitality which is
(heirs by the right of having accepted
the Invitation to Anderson. But wt?f
insist that the Sons of Veterans, tluf<
organization, should show some ex
cuse for existence.
The camp here in Anderson which
is to meet Monday morning is one ol
few that has ever done, anything tot\
thc old soldiers. There Ls a great and
splendid work for the sons of veterans
to do. Ijei them realize it' and get to
lt. There ls hlBtory tb be Written,
history to be preserved,
i And when the reunion comes here,
let's have srr^?thlng for the sons and
daughters to do. Let? each old soldier
in tho parade-and mukc it a short
march-have cn thc one side a glori
ous young woman of the south to
tell him that in the yearB to come his
devotion to the Btarry.cross wll not
he forgot; and or the otb sr side lot
li im leun upon the supporting arm of
one of the sons of veterans who will
give a pledge that so long as the sun
warms this southland of ours love for
tile Confederate soldier will never lan
guish in thc hearts of thu youth.
STAND BY THE SCHOOLS
.This week lias tn store a big oc
casion for Anderson-the meeting of j
the schools of the county. Superin
tendent Sw?aringen has recently paid
some very high compliments to the
schools of this couut;, und the schools

the people of thc city of Anderson will
take a great deal of in trest in this]
gathering tills week and will give by j
tbe'r personal atendance every en
couragment to the groat work that ls j
being carried on.
