What Sha We Do?
The perplexing question with
ewspaper fraternity of the
Sta how to deal with public
officials 'and public questions.
The editors should be privileged
to publish the official acts of
public men, and to call attention
to their mistakes and to point
ou errors; if any, as well as to
commend their gooa deeds, with

tiewspapers and editors should
be classed "dirty" "untruth
ful," and "bmalicious."~ And
yet these are the tactics which
have been employed in this
-- - - ,+ate in one or two notable in
stances. And the strange part
of it is it seems to be popular
with a large element of the peo
ple. It has come to the point
where the winning card in poli
tics is to abuse the newspapers.
The fellow who can use th'e
most adjectives and inectivein

against t1/ newspapers is the

Presbyterian Campaign.
The Presbyterians of South
Carolina are engaged in a cam
paign for the purpose of raising
$200,000 for their educational in
titutions, viz., the Presbyterian
College of South Carolina, at
Clinton; Chicora College at
Greenville and the Theological
eminary of Columbia. A joint
committee on endowment has
been appointed to manage the
campaign. This cornmitte con
sists of nine, three representa- f
tives from each of the schools,
the president being one of the
three. The personel of the com
mittee is as follows: Rev. E.
E. Gillespie of Yorkville, chair
man: Rev. H. A. Knox, of
Mayesville, recording secretary;
Mr. John McSween, Timmons
ville, treasurer; Rev. B. P. Ried,
Reidville, Mr. Wm. P. Anderson
of Westminister, President D,
M. Douglas of Clinton, Presi
dent S. C. Byrd, of Chicora and
President Thornton Whaling
of the Seminary. The financial
secretary of the committee is
Rev. A. C. Bridgeman, who has
headquarters in Columbia. The
plan adopted to raise this amount
is what is known as the short
term simultaneous campaign,
that has been used so success
ful by the Young Men's Chris
tian Association all over this
country. The campaign is con
ducted_ by Presbyteries. As
there are seven Presbyteries of
the Presbyterian church in
South Carolina, there will be
seven campaigns, one to be held ~
in Enoree Presbytery. Enoree
Presbytery comprises the Pres
bterian churches of Greenville,
Laurens, Spartanburg, Union
and Cherokee (wvest of Broad ~
river) countiEs. This Presby-. ~
tery now has 58 churches with
a total membership, according i
to last reports of 5,413. These
chur'ches will be asked to raise a
sum of $55,000 and each church ~
will have a definite part of this C
amount apportioned to it, which k
it is expected to raise in a can
vass to last eight days and to be
condcted hv picked men of the
particular church.
Here's hoping that each
church in Enoree Pre sbyteryv
will do its part cheerfully, ener- 1
geticaly, promptly enthusiasti- -
ally and successfully. 1

eans that corn does its best in
warm climate. Of course, a
)eral amount of moisture and
rich soil, well fiilled with or
mic matter or humus, are
so needed. In short, there are 01
out four important factors
hich go to make up suitable
>nditions for the growing of
aximum corn crops: C
1. Warm weather, iricluding P
moderately high temperature F
oth day and night. d
2, A comparatively long S
3ason of warm weather, or a C
)ng growing period.
3. Abundant moisture main
%ined without too great varia- s
ons. An excess tef-,moistre 8
nd drouth are equally antagon a
tic to large corn yields.
4. A deep, loose, fertile soil,
vell filled with decaying organic 3
aatter or humus.
It will be seen that three of P
hese four essentials of a corn
ountry are naturally ours. The
ourth alone is lacking, but by
o means impossible of
ttainment. The expeiiences

The Governor's Message.
The first general message by
'ov. Blease to a South Carolina
~nislature was sent in and read
iboth houses the first day of
1 session. It was not an un
sually long document, nor was
a very brilliant one. As a
ate paper it was dissapointing,
>r many subjects of great im
>rtance to the people and tax
wers was not touched upon at
. It had the style of political
'gument rather than a lucid
atement of~ affairs and condi
ms affecting the public wel
re. It leaves the impression
at the governor is using h~is
ecutive functions to make a
litical speech. The first rec
amendation he makes is to

airier. To do so would not -
