3OVERNOR MANNING SAYS STATE a
HAS BEEN BLESSED DURING 13
DISPATCHES FROM COLUMBIA
Doings and Happenings That Mark
the Progress of South Carolina Peo
ple, Gathered Around the State 1
Gov. Manning issued a Thanksgiv- f
ing proclamation, as follows: I
"We live in a Christian country.
We believe in God, and our prayers
ascend to Him for those blessings that
affect us as individuals and as a pe- r
p)e. It is fitting and in conformity z
with custom, that during the harvest
season and near the close of the year,
our people should assemble in places
of wvorship and give expressIonl to
their feelings of gratitude to Almighty
God for the manifold blessings be
stowed upon us.
"It is a matter for profound grati
tude that we have not been entangled
in the dreadful war that now afflicts
so many of the great European coun- 1
tries; that our national honor has
been Jealously guarded and our in
terests protected. This war has.
brought to us new duties and respon
sibilities. They have been bravely
and unflinchingly net. The industrial
crisis brought on by this war, for
which we were in no way responsible,
has been overcome by courage, econ
omy and effort. That crisis is now
behind us, and our people are stronger
and better for the disciple and ex
perience and the lessons It brought
home to us.
"Our schools and institutions of
higher learning are full and never
before has the interest of our people
been greater and more alive to the
importance of that educational train
ing which will make our citizenship
higher, better and more ffcic"t.
"The harvest season l as brought
a return of confidence and prosperity.
We face the future with a firm as
surance that better industrial, con
mercial and educational conditions
will be ours; that the spirit of help, of
brotherhood and of unity, will abide
"These thoughts fill our hearts with
hope and with faith in the future of
our state and our country, and it is
emiiently proper that with grateful
hearts and with prayers for strength
and grace to help the needy and suf
fering in our communities, . to guide
the young, to 'lend our help, to
strengthen Christian character, to de
velop rugged and pure manhood and
womanhood, that we should set apart
a (lay for thanksgiving and prayer.
"Now, therefore, I, Richard I. Man
ning, govenor of South Car-olina, do
her-eby set ap~art and designate Thur-s
day the 25th of Novemibe-, A. D. one
thousand nine hundred and fifteen, as
a (lay of Thanksgiving and prayer for
all our- 1)001)1."

Governor Studies Message.
Gov. Manning has made no afficial
announcement as to tile matters to
be diseussed in his annulial message
to tile general asse'mly in 1916.
Thero are mnany important matters
which have developed dur-ing the
, first year of his administr-at ion. He
will use every effort to carry out his
program for constructive legislation,
which wvas begun at tihe iast session.
The governor will pr-obably have
tomething to say concernling a fight
)m the boll weevil, which is gradually

One of the most Interesting tables
n the annual report of tle state su
erintendent of education, to be sub.
iitted to the general assembly in Jan.
ary, will show the expenditure per a
upil in the various counties. Since
outh Carolina collects no state tax
)r schools, this comparison empha
Izes the weakness of the county as a
chool tax unit, and discloses wide dis- t
arities among the 44 counties.
In the amount spent per pupil,
arnwell leads with $39.06 for each
rhite child. Since this record was
eld by Barnwell for 1913-14, Super
itendent H. J. Crouch and his co- b
rorkers are helping to establish a
ew standard for the state. Char
ston ranks second with $30.96 and
Darlington third with $30.08.
In 24 counties the per capita ex
enditure per pupil was above the
tate average of $16.22. This is due
the heavy predominance of white
opulation In many sections. In only 1
Dur counties was the expenditure per
upil below $10-Pickens, Lexington,
