The New Judges.
The Anderson Mail says:
The news of tho election of Hon.
George E. Prince to tho judgeship of
the tenth judicial circuit was received
with the keenest pleasure in Anderson.
On every side expressions of satisfaction
wero heard as soon as the news became
'?A group of representative men were
discussing the election yesterday after
noon. 'There is one thing about it,'said
the leading merchant. 'The Legislature
elected him on account of his personality
and well known ability and fitness and
not on account of any effort of his own
to be elected. There never was a sor
rier politician, asjthat term is generally
understood, than George Prince. He is
a rather slow hand to make friends to
begin with, and in the second place he
is entirely lacking in policy. He can't
trim his sails to suit the wind, or the
crowd, but he will go right along do
ing and saying what he thinks is right,
and he doesn't care one whit whether
anybody approves of his course or
In the gpxitig of 1892, or about that
tiv.ie, the writer heard Gco. E. Prince
deliver a forcible and eloquent speech
at a banquet given to the South Caro
lina Press Association. His audience
was composed of partisans of both pol
itical factions. Mr. Prince expressed,
boldly and strongly, the views for hold
ing which such men as the late William
H. Wallace, who had been speaker of
the "Walh?fe Hcuse" and a Confeder
ate Brigadier General, was a few
months later banished from the Bench,
notwithstanding his great ability and
Mr. Prince was in a minority in those
days but he had convictions and he was
Five or six years ago a friend who
lives in another State remarked to us
that certain young men, naming one
who was then a member of Congress,
had taken the wrong course for a suc
cessful career. He said that the agita
tion which had forced men of the Geo.
Prince type to the rear would pass
away and that the young Congress
man's political days were practically
ended. We did not believe it?much as
We desired it.
The young Congressman is now
about as dead a duck, politically, as
was ever dumped into a ditch. The
ditches around him are (died with pol
iticians of the same kind. A few men
wdio had individual worth and ability
who were followers and office-holders
under Capt. Tillman's leadership have
survived, but they are exceptions. The
people are calling to the front the
young men of 1890 and 1892 who re
fused to accept the dictation of a boss.
D. E. Finley was elected Senator
from York county in 1890 as a Tillman
ite. He declined to enter any factional
caucuses in the General Assembly, voted
against the Dispensary Bill and in fact
was a rebel, voting as he choose, some
times with and more often against
"Reform" measures. Congressman
Strait was a Tillmanite of the strictest
sect. Finley after a few years beat
Strait for Congress. Two years later
he beat Mr. Strait again, worse than
before. Mr. Finley was elected again
The people get excited sometimes
but they cool down and in the end they
support men who have opinions of their
We regret the defeat of Judge D. A.
Townsend, the man who happened to
be in the line of succession when Judge
Wallace was "bounced." Judge Town
send made a good Judge. Although his
election was a mere accident of parti
san excitement, although he ought not
to have been elected, he ought to have
been reelected. The people ^make a
grave [mistake when they turn out a
Judge who is not a Tdisgrace to the
bench. So we urged 12 years ago. So
we urge now. If we had been in the
House we should have voted for Judge
Townsend against Messrs. Hydrick and
Sanders who were never "Reformers."
We are not saying so now for the first
time. Rotation in office is ruinous to
the independence of the Judiciary. So
long as they conduct themselves with
propriety we hope that every Judge
now in ofiicc will be retained and with
out opposition from anybody.
It gives us pleasure to add testimony
to what the business men of Anderson
say of George E. Prince.
Mr. Memminger, elected to the new
Charleston Circuit is a^lawyer of ster
ling worth and fine ability.
The Farmers arc Learning.
The Southern farmers in the aggre
gate by holding their cotton since the
slump have shown more business intel
ligence than u]>on any occasion hereto
fore. They have already succeeded in
causing a friso of two or three dollars
the bale in the price. Had they rushed
their cotton to market the price would
doubtless have dropped to six cents be
The wise conduct of (ho farmers is
due primarily to the fact that they are
better able to hold their cotton this
year. In inestimable value will be a
demonstration to themselves that they
can co-operate effectively in business
There is no reason in the world why
cotton producers should place their
whole crop on tnc market at any one
time Cotton is not a perishablo pro
duct. Neither is coal. The producers
of coal hold their product aa long
as they wish. It is equally just to
hold cotton. The orango growers of
Florida and California aro al?o holders.
It is only ordinary business common
senso to hold cotton when tho price is
not satisfactory and as soon as the far
mers are educated in holding together
as the times demand the situation will
bo under their control.
The aim is not to form a "Trust." It
is not to elevate the price to an extor
tionate point. It is merely to prevent
the demoralization of tho market by
over-stocking it during a few weeks
If the New Orleans meeting shall
bring about the organization of rapid
communication between tho cotton pro
ducers and train them in the method of
turningjjtheir efforts at any given time
into a single channel it will mark a new
and better epoch in the industry.
We believo it to be tho duty of all
cotton producers in Laurens to stand
with their brethren throughout tho
South in this movement. Whether or
not it wins or loses in immediate and
direct results it cannot fail to raise the
Southern farmers to a highor plane of
independence as business men.
The Cotton Growers Association re
cognizes that holding cotton success
fully depends upon the possession of
warehouse facilities. The emphasis
which its lays upon ware-house building
is one of the best features of its work.
A system of warehouses is absolutely
necessary to cotton production on busi
ness principles. It provides the cheap
est possible insurance.
We have long had these ware-houses
in Laurens and they have undoubtedly
saved to Laurens'farmers many thou
sands of dollars.
The wise farmer who does not sell at
once after his cotton has been baled
will have his bales hauled to a bonded
The cotton in bales that is burned on
the farms each year and is not insured
is an enormous waste.
It is the wildest extravagance for a
farmer to hold uninsured cotton, that is
to carry his own insurance. Only those
farmers who have as much capital as
an insurance company can afford it.

BEFORE THE WAR.
A Description of tlio Old
Time *'District School."
"Turniug the Teacher Out" Remembered
Utiplcasantly?"Names of Pu
About tho year 1855 tho citizens of
Cross Hill built two brick academies,
one for boys and ono for girls. The
schools were about 1-4 of a mile apart
and in sight. The school for many
years before that, date was located
near the branch from the present build
ing, near the Presbyterian Church, and
had been to some extent a denomina
tional school. The Presbyterian preach
er for a number of years was the teach
er. Mr. James Carter, a public spirited
citizen", was tho contractor who built
the two academies. They were commo
dious buildings and furnished with good
seats and writing desks. I mean they
were good for those days. The building
erected for boys is p'>tirely gone now,
and tho other one .s been enlarged
and improved and .s now used as the
Cross Hill High School. It was an epoch
in the life of this deponent, when a boy
of about seven years, he donned his
satchel of books and with dinner in
hand, accompanied by an elder sis
ter, who attended the other school, he
left home for his first day at school. I
remember well the greeting I received.
When within a few rods of tho school
house I heard the cry, new scholar! new
scholar!! and I did not know whether
it meant a pleasant reception or the re
verse. I soon found I was among my
friends however, and was duly installed
a pupil under the tutilage of the late
Capt. S. P. Boozer. Mr. Boozer volun
teered after this and served in the War
between the States and lost a leg in one
of the battles. He died some years ago
at Greenwood, S. C. When Mr. Boozer
gave up the school the boys gave him a
gold headed cane. I remember contri
buting my dime for this purpose. At
that time the martial spirit was in the
air and two flags were waving in the
breeze at old Cross Hill?one for Seces
sion and the other for Co-operation.
The boys caught this spirit and with
their wooden guns would spend their
recess playing soldier. With quite a
number of the larger boys it soon be
came a reality, and they left us for the
war, some of them never to return. At
that time the Cross Hill school had
quite a reputation and a number of
young people boaixled in town and at
tended school. Among the boarding
pupils from a distance I remember Tom
Payne, Isaac Meek, Marion Proctor,
Fred Jeffries, Jno. Bullock, Robt. Bul
lock, Thomas Griffin, Sophie Jeffres,
Mattie Caine and others. In those days
it was not uncommon for pupils to walk
four miles to school. The Starnes boys
and their sister, Miss Alice, walked
from home. They lived near what is
called the Dry Fork plantation. When
Mr. Boozer taught the boys, Col. John
W. Ferguson taught the girls, assisted
by Miss Eliza Pelote. There are a num
ber of their pupils still near the old
rendezvous, but the large majority are
gone, some to otl>er homes and many
have crossed over the river. After Mr.
Boozer the school was taught by Mr.
Ballat, and then by Mr. T. J. Griffin.
Mr. Griffin had lost his left arm in bat
tle. Ii was during Mr. Griffin's admin
istration I had my first experience help
ing to turn out the teacher. The larger
boys arranged the plan, nailed up the
windows and barricaded the doors, and
when the teacher came demanded a va
cation. We soon found that our plans
would not work, and quite a number of
the boys backed down and relented.
After keeping the teacher out most of
the day we surrendered and opened the
doors. I would rather not say what
then happened. If you can see Mat
Lowe, Car Rudd or Theodore Starnes
they can tell about it. Senator F. P.
McGowan was on the ground, as one of
the smaller boys. He no doubt remem
bers about it. In those days we had to
speak one Friday and read compositions
the next. It was a great trial to mo to
get up and recite before the school, and
often a number of visitors would be
R. B. Lindsay was one of our best
orators among the larger boys, and I
always thought Belton Chappell could
beat the smaller boys. The girls us
ually threw him more flowers when he
finished. In those days the school
would last all day, with morning and
afternoon^ recess, and two hours at
noon. When not soldiering, our recess
would be taken up playing bull pen,
town ball, marbles and with the little
boys?knock over hats.
About once a year the schools would
unite and have a fishing party. We
would meet at the girl's school house
and all walk to Mudlick Creek to spend
the day. This was our chance to show
our gallantry by engaging the company
of some girl to walk with her and to
show her how to fish.
In this article I have said more about
our sports. When I write again I will
say something about our experiences
inside the school room, some of which
were pleasant to remember and some

Why Grnte Ilnri Cilre Out.
The principal cause which contrib
utes to the rapid burning out of the
grate bars in a boiler Is the actiou of
the furnace heat, which will In time de
stroy any set of grates, but the want
of n proper How of air through the
grates will cause overheating, whether
it occurs through too little air space in
the grates themsolvcB or by these
spaces becoming obstructed through
any cause, thus preventing the cooling
effect of the air on its passage to the
fire. Another roason is found in the
impurities of the coal and especially In
the chemical combinations of sulphur
and Iron, which impurities are found
In more or less quuntity in all coals.
The Practical Engineer says any coal
which forms an oaslly fusod clluker
will injuriously affect the grata*.

Mr. P. 13. Bailey,
Clinton, S. C.
Your letter of December 9th,
received. The long staple cotton
I bought from you for the Watts
Mills gave perfect satisfaction, by
mixing it with the Mississippi
long staple. I consider your cot
ton better than the Floradora,
both in length of staple and
strength. Yours very truly,
By Mr. Franks.
