WINTHEOP's ANNUAL REPORT.
A part of the annual report of the 1
trustees of Winthrop College has been
published in the Rock Hill Herald
ai~d ie of great interest. The report
is no:w being printed by the State 1
printer. According to this report the
total number of pupils admitted this
session is 463 and five states are rep-.
resenead in the student body. Fair
field County is well represented at
Winthrop, as there are sixteen young
ladies from this county attending the
college It is found that sixty pere
cent of the number enrolled could not
ave attended any college this session
if Winthrop hsd not brought educa
tonA within their reach. Last summer I
the number o'f applicants for admis-a
sion to, the college reached five hun
dred, but only two hund red and sixty-i
two ccould be accommodated in the
dormizory. Li connection with the I
college is a large~ farm and dairy and
recently a large orchard has been set ~
out and the board expects to can s
fruit and vegetables for the use of the C
college and thus save the college a ~
large amo~unt of money.

JA MES Q. D AVIS,
SUGGESTIONS. TO THE GKWERAL
To the Editor of The News ond Herald:
We have had one of the quietest
Christmates I have ever seen, less
drinking and no fussing. It is said:
"It is an ill wind that blowe no good."
A part of tLis vuiet time can be attri
buted to the hard times financially. If
we cannot have plenty, let us have
peace with what we have. The finan
cial condition of the county is alarm
ing; if ever times were harder it cer
tainly was before my recolteetion.
When the financial crisis came, wise
business men of all pursuits cut down
their expenses and called a halt. It is
said that wise men shut the house
when they see the storm coming. Has
the State of South Carolina ever found
out that there are hard times, has she
done one thing in these 3 ears to lesEen
the public experse, whereby the taxes
might be reduced? Does she know
that the people are trying to pay the
most extravagant tax that has been
levied since reconstruction, all things
considered? Have they ever thought
how long the agricultural people could
stand, this? Do they not know that
many property owners cannot pay the
pretrnt tax unless they can borrow the
mot ey in some way? Why has the
once prospesous people come down so
'apt! Why have they to-day been
r din in old buggies and wcaring old
clotht ? Is it not on account of hard
timu? If it is right and necessary for
the subjects of South Carolina to be
economical, is it not just and i ight and
necessary that the Stste should call a
Our representative body will soon
convene. They are fine, well posted
people, especially from this county; no
>ne kiows better thin they that the I
taxes are too high and that they are
taken fro 2 a peop!e often that have to
buy bread on time with money often
>rrowed on that wonderful thing,
hbe poor man's friend-the lien. This
aw has done more to keep a large
lass of white people pocr and needy
an any law ever placed on the stat
ites. It his done more to ruin the
abor of the country aid make tramps
ut of once good laboring t'egroes
bau all other laws co)mbined. Some
will ask how can the taxes be reduce]?
imply by reducing the county and
itate expenses. Knock out a lot of
urplus offices; let one in some cases
lo the work of two. Reduco this a
ormous County Board, and let three t
non do the work of fifteen in the C
.ame time. Let the County Super
visor get in the saddle ond close the
)fice, and let him see that every day's.
bor that the county is entitled to as
>blic highway duty is properly put
u at time when it will best serve the
~ount V; let him see the creeks and
ranches and gullies that the people j
ant bridged over; let out the con- 'i
imef, and stop paying to lhave ~
ians and especiallthinkow th
ug about the hard times. Their sal- t
hry is the same now when one dollar i
tas twice as much purchasing power
B it had ten years ago. Politicians
uly pay debts of gratitude; tickle me
nd I wili tickle you or your brother -
Fim. If you pick a little fellow and
nd him to the Legislature, the first -
ing you know he has a Governor's !
tee in his ear. Big head kills horses,
ut it is not so fatal in men.
