A LETTER FROM THE DECEASED
W. C. HOLCOMBE'S MOTHER.
Mr. Editor: I wish to write a few
lines to your paper concerning the
eeurt that is just over in Pickens
county. It se'ems strange to me that.
.truthful, honest people haven't any
voice in court as you claim the court
is founded on the Bible. The part
that has hurt me so is to think the
men who dressed my poor boy had
no voice in the clothes they took oft
of him, and his coat had to be han
dled in the court house, and tried to
'be slandered before the people be
cause it was soiled. I do not believe
he had spoken to the 'man who mur
dered him, for he was a kind, honest
hearted boy towards everybody he
met, atnd as faithful to his duty at
home as any boy any parents ever
reared. The good people of Easley
proved this by their kindness toward
uis all, and I thank them for their
kind hand towards us. 1 just want
the people who stood in the court
house to know that although my poor
- boy is not here to take his part, his
old mother is.
As to the sentence the boy recein
ed, I have notliing to do with that,
for 1 know that he and all the rest
will have to stand before a Judge
where there will be no jurors nor
lawy qa, and the , sentence will be
sealed by a righteous Judge
What is man today for each other?
God made man after His own image,
and for His own gloiry, and to glorify
Him, but where are a great number
of them It seems to me that they
have got the mark of the beast on
their foreheads and in their hands.
Just think .of the murder In our own
country. I do not think any of the
laws are founded on the Bible, be
cause God's law' I know is a right
eous law. I would to God our peo
ple would follow it. I surely am
sorry to see our country in the con
dition it is in, I would say in time
of peace, but where is peace?
Although my poor boy was taken
in an instant, I feel like he has gone
to rest where all is peace and joy,
and I hope to meet and greet him
some sweet day.
Mrs. M. B. Holcombe.

The home was beautifully deco

LIBERTY, S. C.
Among the ' many discoveries
brought to our 4tterition .by our' en
trance into the World War, we find
that South Carolina was shown to us I
as she really was. True to her pre- I
vious record, her sons were as brave
as any and they were sent willingly,
but we were amazed when the New
York Times told the world the truth
about them: for 49.5 per cent could
neither read nor write ! Practically I
half of the South Carolina men went
to serve the state who had deprived
them of educational advantages!
New York with its thousands of for
eigners, had a percentage of only
16.6. Our educational rating is be
low Hawaii and Porto Rico. There I
is only one other state in the Union
who have more citizens who can
neither read nor write. No other
state in the Union has a more honor
able history, but history does not re
lieve the present conditions or lessen
our shame. I
In 1916 twenty-three per cent of I

in our own county to do.
The summer drive against illit
eracy will be more thoroughly organ
ized than ever before and the de
'rease in our county per cent. of il
:iteracy will be greater.
The county will be divided into
sections and the county organizer
will work from centers. The course
of study in the adult schools will in
clude reading, writing, spelling and
arithmetic. If advisable such class
es as civics and current events may
be added. The time and place will
be d ?cided by the pupils and teacher.
The minimum monthly term will be
twelve lessons on tw ?lve separate
days; the maximum monthly term It
twenty lessons on twenty separate
days. It is surprising how eagerly!
and how rapidly adults master the
course given! It. is a fact realized L
by these experienced in such work I
that ordinarily an adult will cover the
work of a regular school grade in one
lay by school.
