J. c. G A R Ll NOTOX A- co.,
Last week will long bo remem
bered hy the Editor of TIIKADVEK.
TIBER. For moro than a your wo
have boen in tho newspaper busi
ness, and during that time we have
often indulged the fancy that we
had picked up a few points <>n the
mechanical "got up'' of ti newspa
per. This delusion, however, has
boon entirely dispelled hy our ex
perience on the ever memorable
S H'Ond wee!; in October. On Tues
day morning, the day of publica
tion, we entered tho composing
room and fourni nearly nil the
material in "pie'' nnd about half the
JDiatter for the next issue DU the
"hook. After employing all thc ex
tra force in town available, we
shucked our coat and mounted the
tripod. At nightfnl all composit
ors struck, and although the paper
was fur from being ready for press,
the Editor found himself alone
with the pressman, whose dusky
countenance shed hut little light
upon the scene. Dozing away in
one corner of the room this individ
ual, dreamed perhaps of the vicis
situdes of journalism. Occupying
the position, of editor, compositor
and devil, acting ns foreman, proof
rtader, and every other position in
a printing office down to mailing
clorkj and after tugging away nil
night, daylight caught US in the
solitude of the'Anv.KKTi.SKR office
still nt work. Hut ?is the MID rose'
the cntirejodition was ready Tor the
mails, und we hud seen something
of the dark, as well as the bright
side of the life of the newspaper
Editor Laurens Advertiser.-T
noticed in your last paper an edit
orial, In which you say:
"The idea prevails tosnmccxtcnt,
that learning disqualifies a boy for
manual labor, and young men ure
taught thal they must either choose
work or study, never for a moment
thinking that these two could be
I am glad to seo you advocate n
manual labor school. That is what
we need and that is what Mr. Till
man is after.
The above extract from Tur, AD
VERTISER does not refer to manual
labor schools. Indeed wo hud no
such institution In mind win n
the article was written, The iden
intended ?s, that some men seem
to think that tho exercise of mus
ele, to an educated man is degra
ding. There are those who think
that because a hoy ls so fortunate
ns to receivo an education, bo must
choose .soine of the w niles of Ufo
where only the brain is exercised.
This ls a mistake. The demand
to day for educated men on the
farms, in tho shops, behind the
countersand'in all such avocation1,
is urgent. The reason why many
farmers no not succeed better ls
because they ?lo not educate them
selves in their profession. When
a mun louves college he hus only
prepared tho foundation upon
which bis education should rest,
and simply because he follows a
plow, ls no reason why nil mental
improvement should censo. No
man is so much engaged In manual
labor, but cnn find many spare
moment s In whieltfostore away val
nable information. So far from
u.sy to "\
being a hlndernnce, study will give
a zest to his labors.
We arc and have always been in
favor of un Agricultural College,
but not such a school us, according
to our understanding, Mr. Tillman
desires. The reasons for preferring
an Agricultural Colh go, modeled |
on the University plan, to a manual I
labor school,arc numerous. lu tho
tlrst place, young men attend Col
lege at a time when every moment !
is valuable and should bo utilized I
in training the mind; not only so, ?
but while :tt College their time
should bo sn employed ns to gain
the greatest anion:it of training,
from a pecuniary consideration.
We see no reason why :i boy
should bo <e!it to -. hool to 'earn
such things as he cnn bc taught bet
terat home, fnmaunal labor schools?
a boy spends half hist Imo In plow
hoeing, etc,, nil of which is perfect-1
ly familiarto him. There is no need
togo to College, pay tuition and
board to loam thesi things. Teach
your boys to work before they go
to school and send thom to schcol
to . learn how l>e?t t<> apply
their labor. All thal is necessary
caa bo learned from un exporinn ni -
al farm, such as they now hove Eu
Columbia lu connection with tho
University, and if this Agricultural
I annex is not doing what it should
j for the country is it boc.msc the
boys will not j-r<> there to take
I the agricultural course.
