ing the Teacher's Institute to be
held in Laurens beginning on the
14th of August.
First, to School Officials: As con
scientious officials endeavoring to
carry out the laws of the state re
garding its schools, It is your duty
to use every effort to see that the
provision made for the improve
ment of teachers In the public
schools, should not be rendered in
effective. The best day's work a
school trustee can do just now is to
see that the teachers in his district
come to the Institute, and that he
Second, to Teachers: You cannot
afford at the present stage of edu
cational advancement to lose any
opportunity to gain information
about subjects, methods or manage
ment. Every additional Idea you
can gain of the>o things develops
your strength, saves it, and makes
it more effective. In proportion as
you gain in knowledge and effec
tiveness, y our work becomes easier,
plensantor, better paying and you
yourself will be more in demand.
To Ministers: You are interested
in education of the right sort; show
It by attending the institute, tell us

To the People: All are vitally
interested in the success of the
public schools; you will learn
much, be much interested, be bet

battle against ignorance and

tute. Besides your presence will
stimulate and encourage the teach
ers. This is a public work, done
by a public institution, and the
public will be welcome at all ses
Finally, to tho citizens of Lau
rens: You have an opportunity to
show that the imagined 111 feeling
between town and country is not
true on your part. Open your
homes to the teachers of the coun

them free of cost if you can, at

Death of I<\ A. Connor.
The Hon. Francis Ambrose Con
nor died at his home at Cokesbury,
in Abbeville County, on last Satur
day, July 22, after a brief illness.
The Abbeville Press and Banner
publishes the following concerning
"Mr. Connor wiis born near
Cokesbury, then Mount Ariel, in
the year 1S18. He was a son of Dr.
Francis Connor, who was a loading
physician and one of the most
prominent and public-Spirited citi
zens of that section. Mr. Connor
received his academic training at
Tabernacle Academy and Mount
Ariel, and completed his education
at Bandolph-Macon College, Vir
gin, where ho graduated with first
honors of his class about tho year
1838. Shortly after his graduation
he married Miss Frances Hodges,
a daughter of Gen. G. W. Hodges
and one of tho most beautiful wo
men of her day. Twelve children
wore born to them. His third wife,
formerly Mrs. Evans, of Charles
ton, also survives him,
"In the early forties Mr, Connor
was elected professor of Latin and
Greek .in the Oolcosburry Confer
ence School, when that institution
was at the very zenith of its pros
perity, and held tho position for a
number of years, Ho was after*
wards elected president of the Ma
sonic Female College, and remain
ed at the head of that flourishing
seminary until it was forced to sus
pend by the war. Hundreds of his
old pupils will bear willing testi
mony to his distinguished ability
as an educator. Those who know
him well in that capacity say that
as a teacher he was never excelled
and rarely equalled in this county.
"Boforo tho war Mr, Connor was
engaged in planting and farming
on a large scale. After the war he
continued his planting for some
years, but latterly has been engag
ed in business pursuits, and has
been very successful. For some
years boforo the Columbia and
Greenville Bailroad was sold at
foreclosure sale ho was one of its
directors, He was elected to tho
House of Representatives of the
State Legislature in 1876, and was
a member of the famous "Wallace
House." In this body ho served
with conspicuous ability and was
prominently spoken of for Speaker
whon Judge Wallaco resigned to
accept a seat on the Bench, but de
clined to become a candidate. For
many years he was a /..?ominont

The Sunday School convention
was called to order last Wednesday

address and was responded to by
Mr. 0. L. Flke.
W. T. Austin was elected Presi

the iuterest of the Sunday Schools
were carefully looked after and the
work found to bo progressing in a
most satisfactory manner.
One of the most interesting fea
tures of the convention was an ad
address on Thursday morning by
Miss Mary L. Yeargin, and again
in the afternoon a recitation by
Miss Yeargin entitled The Creeds
of the Bells, was listened to with
greatest interest. The Convention
was atteuded by large crowds, and
the greatest harmony prevailed.
While Mr. Jonn Hollingsworth
and family were attending Con
vention, his house was broken into
and about $35 stolen therefrom. A
negro boy by the name of Sam

until all business is disposed of so
that the delegates may leave in
It is pretty well settled that W.
D. Evans will be president. An
old scandal about Norris has been
revived with disastrous effect on
the Pendleton statesman's presi
dential aspiration. It is under
stood that he is Tillman's candi
date but somo of his opponents
worked the scandal on him and he
is out of it. Evans' friends say he
will be elected without opposition.
Walhalla,?It was decided to
limit the voting power in the an
nual conventions to tho delegates.
Hortoforo tho officers have exer
cised tho privilege. Donaldson's
friends claim that he has sufficient
votes to re-elect him, but he de
clines to allow his namo to bo used,
saying that ho can not be president
of the alliance while it remains in
such a hostile attitude toward Pres
ident Cleveland. The resolutions
seem to take tho alliance right into
tho third party at one leap. They
were offered by Jos. L, Keitt, an

The reports indicate that there
has been less drunk ness than before
the dispensaries were established
and apparently less money spent
But suppose thoro were no dls
pcusaries and no bars ? Would not
tho decreaso in drunkness be yet
greator and tho expenditure for li
quor even smaller?
We see no reason to change our
former opinion. If the dispensaries
are successful as moral agencies
they will be failures financially.
If they are successful financially
they will bo failures morally. They
can not sell largo quantities of li
quor and diminish drunkeness.
They can not largely decrease the
sale ot liquor and be profitable.
We think the practical fact will be
that when the new law has been in
operation a while and the law-less
classes "learn tho topes" there will
be about as much whlskoy sold and
used as ever. There is nothing now
but lack of money to prevent any
man who wants liquor and belongs
to the prohibited classes from In
ducing a friend or anybody else
who has the required qualifications
to buy for him from the dispensary.

THE PEACE BELLS OF BROOKLINE.
Our hearts wore waiting, bleeding, waiting,
With trembling, longing, hopo and fear,
Our very breaths in silence bating.
Ami wbiio wo prayed, "God's hand be staid;
Let war bo over, peace appear!"
Through all tho air, with cadence flue,
Came pealing bells from fair Hrooklino:
"Peace is signed at Appoinatt'A'I
Peace is signed at AppomattOXl"
From splro to spire tho tidings spring
As sunbeams flash o'er peaks of snow,
While strong men weep or pray or sing,
And oach man's mood to all seems good,
For in thai happy, golden glow
To God all grateful hearts Incline,
While shouts tho bells of fair Prooklino:
"Peace is signed at Appornattoxl
Peaco is signed at Appomnttoxt"
'T?'fts ohlldron rang that glorious peal
In lightsome glco that war was o'er.
As men and women now they feel
How blest were they tbat happy day
To ring tho bells which tidings boro

And still they'll thrill In life's dcolmu.

Cal. ('augliman Makes a Speech.
There was a picnio at Traveler's
Rest y eater day and CoLCal.Caugh
mao, of Lexington, was present by
invitation and made a speech. B.
F. Perry, of this city, was present
but did not speak* About 300
people attended and the day was
much enjoyed. Colonel Caughman
made one of his rattling speedup.
He was a good deal interrupted by
one or two Tilltnan men but took
care of himself and made matters
very hot for his opponents. From
the exchange of words a row which
at one time looked serious was de
veloped between two men in the
orowd, but it was quelled after
some remarkably hard language
had been given and received. The
Caughman speech was generally re
garded as effective. The meeting
indicated that the Tillman senti
ment is yet strong in the Traveler's
Rest country, but there havo boon
some changes and the men who
have changed seem io be as bitter
against the governor as they for
merely were against his foes.?
