The many cultivated Charleston peo

Unitarian Parish Hall, will have at
least one delightful memory for a life
time; and those who did not hear him,

lecture, "Ah Old Man's Kranky Ka
leidoscope," i8a Btring of pearls?pearls
of thought, of pathos, of humor, of sen
timent, of religion, of fun. Col. Bacon,
to begin with, is a man of exquisite
personal grace and geniality. His man
ners are tho perfection of high breed
ing. As a pianist, he Is very accom
plished. His playing, although of the
most advanced modorn style, is, like
everything he says and does, exceed
ingly original. As a lecturer, Col. Ba
con is undoubtedly the coming man, If
indeed he is not already come. Col.
Bacon's lifo rocord is a very noblo ono.
He deserves the most exalted moasurc
Col. Bacon's delivery Is as quaint and
charming as the subject matter of his

Our evening contemporary, the Poet,
has made some important changes in
its working force. Mr. W. W. Ball,

resigned tho position; Mr. Pitz Hugh
McMastor, of Columbia, has been

elected a director of the Post. Mr.
Ball is a son of Col. B. W. Ball, of
Laurons, and has had considerable ex
perience In newspaper work, first as
editor and proprietor of tho Laurens
Advertiser, of which he Is still the
owner, and then as editor of tho Co

bright young man of good training and

Horo is what tho Atlanta Constitu

that city's prominent young citizens
adopted from among such our young

ties, tho prophecy of the Constitution
will be verified in John Garlington
winning his way:
Mr. John Young Garlington, tho
well known young attorney from South

business. Mr. Garlington Is ono of tho
most. piomi8ing young attornoys in the
city. Ho camo hore from Sowaneo
university hardly a yoar ago and in
that short timo has bocome widely and

A jolly farmer laughed at tho Ad
vertiser's editor for his advice to the
farmers on cotton acreage and how to
pitch a crop. He said It was a waste
of words; ho had a neighbor that would
plant cotton for tho seed. Ho said
further that ho was into tho pindar

at tho first big political love feast this
fall. lie said fnrthor that he was a friend
of Bon Tillman and was going to write
for a scrap of his coat tail and havo his

that less cotton will bo raised about

of tho farm bolls and horns, a great

We learn that all teachers who
expect to be employed in the pub
lic schools another year will be re
quired to have their certificates re
newed, and we think it best for all
concerned that every teacher in the
county who expects to be employed
to be required to come before the
examining board, and merit his
or her certificate. This is the only
protection to those of us who are
making teaching a profession. A
diploma from a college is not sufti
cicnt evidence that one is qualified
to teach the common school. Books
are different from what they were
several years ago, and one who has
not kept posted in the new series
of adopted books does not know
how by the new method of teach
ing and the new text books to
Too many are teaching to kill
time and get the pay, and we hardly
think it wise for the school officers
to allow incompetent persons to at
tempt to teach.
Any one who is qualified to teacli
in the common schools ought to be
competent to secure a teacher's
certificate by going before the ex
aming board and obtain permission
to teach by the only lawful way to
show competency. Why should
one who is sufficiently posted to
pass the examination object to be
ing examined? Surely, if he feels
his incompctency to appear before
the board how much more ought he
shudder to think of attempting to
instruct when he himself needs in
We have a competent board of
examiners, and we have thought it
would be wise for the board to re
quire every teacher to secure a per
mit to teach by obtaining the cer
tificate on examination, and when
this requirement is made trustees
ought not to employ a teacher who
refuses to go before the board.
By a little care on the part of the
board and the co-operation of the
district trustees the standard of the
schools and the grade of the teach
ers can very easily be raised, and
they need to be raised.
The 19th of April is examination
day, and every teacher who wishes
a certificate to teach ought to feel
it Iiis duty to obtain his certificate
on examination and not on his col
