The Columbia Fair.
Our fast developing sister city de
served to bo complimented and eon
gratulatetl upon their grand "Carnival"
of last week So also the guests and
visitors from the coiltt'0 t<> the circum
ference of t he I i t tie St ate. Hut in the
midst of splendid triumph and brilliant
success! it i.-. wise t<> pause and reflect
and take note of calmness and modera
tion. They had In I tome In ye ancient
days:.' 'in in A lex, de si Min im's, to
restrain the expenses that attended
public festivals and entertainments and
limit the number of guests which gen
erally attended them,no* only In Home,
but in all the provinces of Italy, l'.y it,
not on'y those who received guests in
these fostlvo meotlngs, I it the guests
themselves woi'0 liable to bo lined.
Sometimes a cautionary word is well
And tho danger is enhanced. Says the
Spartanburg Herald of Nov. 2nd:
"Mr. .1. .1. Burnett) muster-elect, ro
turned from Co'unibia yesterday.
Mr. Burnett says that Columbia is
full of visitors, but be interest in the
occasion and the visitors does not to
any extent compare with the Spartan
burg street carnival.There are scarcely
any decorations on the stores and busi
ness houses. There was scarcely any
arrangement for amusement of strang
ors, according to Mr, Burnett's impres
sions. This is far different to the treat
ment visitors to the Spartanburg street
The stock show people who went from
hero to Columbia were loud and enthu
siastic in sounding Spartanburg's
praises in Columbia. They were de
lighted with thi- tremendous business
they did in this city and the courteous
treatment they received at the bauds of
the Spartanburg people."

A Laurens man reports that tho car
on which he code returning homo on
Thursday night was cleverly jolly and
convivial He attributed the conditions
to blind tigers i" Columbia and not to
the chemically pure. Hut still he says
thotrond is not overwhelmingly towards
the whtto ribbon platform, as far as ho
observed while on this holiday outing.
There was a grand ball on Thursday
night, where youth and beauty met to
chase the glowing hours with Hying
feet. The attandance was large, ac
cording to the printed lists, about one
hundred of the belles from all parts of
t he StatO,o'egant ly at tired and one hun
dred and fifty brave bio's in white kids,
French calf skin, while chokers and ra
zor tail coats. But the ads were Hot
all of our day. We observed the names
of many who reminded us of Webster's
Speech at Hunker Hill in 1S24 when the
old continentals were arranged before
him. "Venerable men, you have come
down to us from a former generation.
Heaven has bounteously lengthened out
your days to behold this joyous hour."
ft should be remembered that tin; great.
Greeks, old and young, attended the
Olympic games every four years and
contested for the laurel and the bay.
Laurens, we observe, was not repre
sented in this gay and happy throng.
Charleston was gloriously represented
by bor best men?having her best foot
foremost. Her militia, horse, foot and
dragoons carried oil the honors and her
heroes wen- crowned accordingly. A
lino impression was made and from the
mountains to the sea all hands are
pledged to make the Exposition of 1001
02 a triumphant winner. There is to be
no upper, no lower country any more in
tho hereafter in this State.

"The Strenuous Life."
The popular phrase was well in
vented to lit conditions at the closo of
the century. Consider if you please,
Santiago, Manila,South Africa and the
wild riot in China. Bryan and Teddy,
Colonels in the Spanish-American inci
dent, campaigning in New York, aro
fairly exemplars of the happy phrase .
Fortunately there is usually somebody
to hit the nail on the head with a
*^t>hraso for tho occasion.
Thecensusof n)00gives South Carolina

A Card from n Teacher.
List winter when "Dashing Derby"
made the charge, that "nine-tenths of the
(caohors of Laurens County didn't care a
cent whether tlteir pupils learned any
thing at all or not," we were very indig
nant, and justly so ; i'nr the charge was
extravagant beyond all reason. The very
extravagance of the charge killed the
force of other assertions that he made
which were probably true. Among oth
er things he said, was, that many parents
had complained that their children were
not learning. The fault was, chiefly,
must li'tcly with the children and the
parents. As I am writing this article lor
the beuelit of the trustees and teachers,
I will endeavor to show wherein there
was, at least, some ground for complaint
against them ; aud just here 1 would
state, that "Trustee," iu his article, con
demned himself in condemning the teach
ers. Trustees are appointed to secure
competent teachers, and to sec that they
do their duty ; so a teacher cannot utter
ly fail, without bringing home condensa
tion od the trustees, 'flic trustees should
ho careful to select for teachers those who
take a deep interest in educational al
f?irs. Those teachers who take no inter
est in school work, except during school
hours, give just grouud for suspecting
that they are teaching only for the money,
ami no oue should be more cognizant of
this fact than the trustees themselves.
There is a Teachers' Association in
Laurens County, and very few of the
teachers attend. There is no admission
nor incidental fee, and all trustees and
teachers are urged to become members.
The. trustees can greatly assist in the
work of the Association, by calling the
attention of tboir teachers to the time of
meeting, and aiding them in making ar
rangements to attend. -Many lady teach
ers board away from home and cannot
attend, unless some way is provided lor
them to come. Generally, sonic of the
patrons or trustees can make this provision
with little or no inconvenience to them
selves. 1 believe that there is not a
community in the county but that would
bo proud to know that their teacher is a
regular attendant u the teachers' meet
ings and lakes a prominent part in the
proceedings. People like a live, progres
sive tcaclur. Another way in winch
teachers can greatly assist in these meet
ings is by having it understood that, in
employing teachers, they will sock to se
cure the services of those who arc wide
awake and have a mind to work. If ev
en one trustee from every school district
would be present at. each meeting, what a
help it would be to them aud their
schools in getting the right kind of
teachers, and what an awakening there
would soon be among the teachers!
Trustees, I make an earnest appeal to you
to be present at our next meeting, and if
possible, induce your teachers to come.
The next meeting will be the 10th of
Now, my fellow-teachers, I turn to
you. Do you realize what a responsibility
you assumed in becoming a teacher ? Do
you comprehend the dignity of your pro
fession'.'' This is the most progressive
age the world has yet seen. Doctors,
lawyers, preachers, arc studying as never
before. Farmers, mechanics and men of
every class arc beginning to study. New
inventions, new ideas, new thoughts, arc
constantly brought forth. Some of the
new ideas are positively injurious, while
some are the noblest conceptions of man.
Are. the common schools to keep abreast
of iho times ? If the teacher is alive and
up to date, the best thought of men will
bo inculcated. We have taken upon our
selves to train boys and girls for right
living. How many boys and girls arc
made better by your training and influ
ence ? How many arc made worse ? How
many might have been made nobler still,
if you had properly prepared yourself in
every way for the work entrusted to
your charge ?
Let us, then, awake to a souse of our
duty. Let us roalizo the almost ovcr
powciing responsibility that rests upon
us. . Let it not be said of the teachers of
LauretiS County, that they arc satisfied
with any tiling but the very hist results.
Lot us show to the trustees and patrons
of our .-chools that WO are willing to make
sacrifices to better prepare ourselves lor
the work we are doing. I make this
tamest appeal in behalf of the children
whose whole lives will be influenced by
our teaching. May wo not expect at
least one hundred trustees and teachers
at our next meeting.

With local applications as they can

tarrh is a blood or constitutional dis

take Internal remedies. Hall's Ca

acts directly on the blood and mucous

quack medicine. It wus proscribed by
one of the best physicians in this coun
try, and is a regular prescription. It
is composed of the best tonics known,
combined with the best blood purillerp,
acting directly on the mucous sur
