We wish to shake hands with our

who comments upon it recent letter'
from un Anderson county teacher. It
was our Intention Id comment niton'
the letter from the teacher at the time!
that it appeared, but we did not haw
the opportunity. Our correspondent
from Barnes has expressed our Idea
The people, pay taxes lo maintain the
! teachers" colleges at the University
and at Winthrop -although as a mat
ter of fact vc would prefer some of
the teachers from .ijie denominational
coll?ge?, for the teacher Ik horn and
not mad". 1 The people support the
eachern after they l?avc the colleges, j
j Are these teachers lo Ik; mere aulom-j
atoms to sit In class room and receive
written lessons and to pile up the
purchase of copybooks and "litera
ture" and other,jopnsehitles? We em
ploy that word because these hooks
when properly used are no doubt very
helpful, but In l\(o room of a teacher j
I that is a mere incumbent, it is u waste
or money to buy copy books for chil
dren merely to scribble upon.
The derivation pf the word "to
' . ...IM '
teach" means that the person to whom
this great responsibility Is confided
must Indeed impart instruction. Teach
ing is not. to be <Jon<: at home, ulthough
We rogret to say that most of it is
dono-there these days, and th:re is
some of tho shoddiest, cheapest work
dono In .the schools that ever passed,
under the nume of teaching.
. "An Anderson County Teacher" sure
ly must have been Jesting about the
excellence of the school books. The
aritlum-t ics used In school these days
seem planned for no other purpose
than the wrecking of home life' and
the utter destruction of the minds of
children. Let us buck to the days bf
the good old arithmetics with rules
and reasons. Let us back to the days
or compulsory teaching, when the par
ent did not have to (to all or the work
and then have some misfit of a teacher
I spoil It all.- When - it .comes to tho
school methods of these days we are
We .believe in compulsory attend

We believe that the person who asks
for and receives a job as teacher has
a high responsibility and ' should
at all times measure up to it. The
standards for teachers should be
raised and the pay raised accordingly.
We believe that books : should not be
changed, with such,frequency. Schools
are to impart principles not to instruct

A WOOD ( OKHIRATION
We have been struck with the fact
that corporations may be good or bod
according to environment For in
stance in one section the Southern
Hail way company migiw be consider
ed a monopoly and working against
the Interests of the people. In an-!
other section i?- might be a protector
of the people by entering a territory
that had been pre-emptied by some
Just ho with the Seaboard. This
road was projected by John Skelton
Williams with the idea in view of de
veloping the south and of-competing
with other lines of railway. Just see
what It ban done for the south!
What would Columbia be today if
it had not been for the coming of that
great line of the people. The' Sea
board not only spent upwards of ?a
million dollars to get into the city of
Columbia, but caused the Southern to
build a new line to make Florida con
nections. The help that Columbia re
ceived from the Seaboard can never
since that time the. Seaboard h?s
built to Hartsvllle, Darlington, Flor
ence, Suinter Hem tlsvllle. Marlon Mid
Georgetown, all old settlements -hat
had been practically "bottled up" by
the Coast Line. The Seaboard also
built new lines into virgin territory ^
It has been the one road projector
and builder'in South Carolina in the
last ton years. The C. C. & t>. has
built a line to Spartanburg, but has
not branched out?and it is supposed
to be a double first couMn of the.
Seaboard. Therefore when we hear
of W. F. Stevenson being referred to
as "Seaboard Bill" we take it that the
is being complimented for his con
nection with .a great' friend of the
people of his section of the state.

Take? issue With Teacher on .Certain
Editor Tho Intelligencer:
In your issue of the 14tit inst., an
article appeared addressed to the pa
rents of Anderson, but signed, "An
derson county teacher." if this writer
is a county teacher, why address the
parents of Anderson? We would iove
to think that the teacher was mis
quoted in that ofen letter.
Tho letter In part says: "Tho school
books, of today are prepared with ut
most care, anil the explanations given
have proved adequate to the average
mind and that lack of application on
the current lesson or the lack of brain
are tho two possible reasons for the,
child not understanding the lessons;
assigned. Solomon is tho wisest par
ent that we have any account of and
we are taught that he had a thousand'
wives, but one soff; and that he was a
fool. Tho parents and children today
are many generations from' Solomon,,

j fact and let up on the. parents with

I worst possible injury for the parent
to do the work, for the boy." And yet,
[how often the boys are sent home
(with instructions from "teacher' to
let your mother or your papa help
you, or learn you your lesson, not
! withstanding the fact that the county
'and state has employed "teacher,, and
the pay Is sure, to instruct the child
ren without much brain, and if it is
all the same wi 1 the teacher, Just re
