and, unassisted, secured the position
he now hohl? as a "self-made man."
lie kept along with his classes In the
district school by studying evenings,
while working at manual labor during
school hours, and earned by daily la
bor his meager supply cf feed and
clothing while at the Academy In Wil

upon the law and academic courses
together at Yale College, the latter

time und reduce his expenses. Dut

LECTURE ON EUROPEAN
WAR DELIVERED BY PROF.
?. L. HUGHES
Served Upon Conclusion of Lec
ture by Domestic Science
The regular monthly meeting yes
terday of the .Anderson County School
Teachers' Association, at West Market
street school, was one of the nrost en
joyable and beneficial that this organ-,
lzation has ever held.
The address of the occasion, "The
Geography of the European , War,"
was interestingly discussed by Pror.
E. .L. Hughes, superintendent of the
city schools of Greenville and one of
the best known educators in this sec
tion of the country.
Prof. Hughes' lecture was a discus
sion of causes of the European war.
in the course of which he gave his
opinion as to where the responsibil
ity for the?titanlc carnival of murder
lies. Prof. Hughes took tho position
that Russia was at tho bottom of the
cause of trouble. Having been hemmed

at a period when the time was ripe
for dealing a crushing blow to her
enemies, aided, of coitran, by France
Prof. Hughes' lecture was listened to
with tho closest attention throughout.
There were points explained In his
lecture which had puzzled teachers
no little, and it was indeed a privilege
to have someone like Prof. Hughes de
liver a lecture' on this all-absorblug
Tho association was delighted to
have with them Mrs. Ligon, who sang
two solos, one before the lecture and
tbe other after. Delightful refresh
ments were served those present by
