To the Farmers of the State.
At tho last meeting of tho Hoard of
Trustees of tho Clems.in Agricultural
College, I was requosted to notify the
farmers at large of the willingness of the
Board to co-operate with them in tho
work of holding Farmers' Institutes at
least one in each Congressional Dis
triet. Tho Trustees will send Professors
of the College, and whenever possible,
expert fanners, to talk upon such sub
jects as may ho of special interest to the
farmers in whose neighborhood tho In
.Hinte may ho held. To make such In
stitutes profitible, it will bo necessary
for farmers to attend and to join in dis
cussions that may from ti.-oe to timo
arise. Such nn Institute should ho an
agricultural school for the ordinary
farmer and should bo free from all rod
tapo or formality. To farmers interested
in tobacco raising, I Bhall endeavor to
get a successful tobacco grower to talk
on that subject. To thoso interested in
dairying and chocso making, I shall try
to secure for them Prof. Hart or some
other expert dairyman. In short where
farmers deeire an Institute I shall bo
pleased to co operate with them in leak
ing it moot as far ns possible their es
pecial needs. As wo shall be able to hold
not inoro than ono Institute in each Con
gressional District, I shall bo pleased to
havo letters from farmers suggesting the
proper timo and placo for holding the
same. It has been suggested that be
tween the middle of July and tho mid
dle of Septembor will be tho most suita
ble time. All correspondence in regard
to Bame. should be addressed to Presi

School and Nation.
These are times of great national
anxiety. Social disturbances and
disclosures of political corruption
have alarmed the p-ople. Worship
of the "mighty" dollar, of narrow,
sectional and party ties, and other
evidences of a wide-spread and
growing egotism which does not
hesitate to sacrifice the general wel
ware to the Moloch of selfish am
bitions and present desires are felt
to be indications of an approaching
crisis. Anxious minds are watch
ing with deep concern the gather
ing of clouds and Hashes of light
ning, and arc looking for signs of a
brighter and happier future. It is
natural that their hopes should cen-.
tor on the education of the youth of
the country. There they seek for
help. What a heavy responsibility
this places upon the schools ! They,
above all other institutions, are
considered the strongholds of the
nation and of society. Humanity
established them for the realization
ol its innermost wishes, and fosters
them as gardens in which it has
planted its noblest hopes. Are the
teachers aware of the trust confided
to their care? Many thousands of
them certainly arc. But arc they
also imbued with the spirit of the
ideals of mankind, and earnestly la
boring to make their efforts pro
ductive of the highest results.

The newspapers, with their fresh,

It is, alas! too true that much of
our oral instruction is directed to
the eyes and cars more often than
to the brains of our pupils. We
talk too much "over their heads '.
Don't put too much dependence in
your text books. The geographies,
almost without exception, contain
an enormous amount of matter that
is absolutely trash, and utterly use
less to the pupils who can master
it, and positively injutiouS to the
many who cannot.
Ever have in view the desire to
teach geography to your pupils as
you wish it had been taught to jou

they neglect local geography.?
Never mind about the pampas of

Harris Lithia Water.
The most remarkable Water on the Market to-day which is
Shown by its Analysis and Testimonials of the Most
Noted Physicians of the Country.
Read what a prominent merchant of Columbia, S. C, has to say foi
Harris Lithia Water.
"I had long been affected with kidney troubles. I had tried all the
mineral waters from Saratoga to Porter Springs. I had tried the
Western waters and all others that I could hear of, and I have no hesi
tancy in saying that none have benefited me even approximately as
much as the Harris Lithia Water. I was using the Buffalo Lithia Water
when 1 heard of this. I do not expect to use the Buffalo Water agair.
"When I went to Harris Lithia Springs, I had to be assisted out of
my chair. After remaining two weeks I could get about asTgood as
anybody. It acted on mo like a charm?quickly ami effectively", This
water is now being largely sold in Columbia, and I think every person
who has tried it will ngfCC with me in the belief that it is the mosf re
markable w ater in the country. From a simple interest in Suffering hu
manity. 1 would like very much to see it given a trial.

Mr. J. T. Han is:
We have been si lling the Harris Lithia Water for some time, and
find it a ready seller; those who have tried it are loud in its praise. The
doctors here regard it superior to cither the Buffalo or Londonderry
Waters. We predict for it a wonderful sale when the merits become
moro generally known.
Yours very truly, . RAYSCR & SMITH,

Mr. |. T. 1 Ian is.
I have been under tin- treatment of several physicians, and been to
different watering places during the last ten years for kidney disease. It
alfords me pleasure to say that I have received more benefit from the
use of 1 Ian is Lithia Water than all rcmcdic9 combined.
