THE C0LLEQE IN CLINTON.
No Presbyterian College of South
Carolina would now be at Clinton or
elsewhere had it not been for the en
terprise and the devoted and self-sacri
ficing efforts of Clinton people. No
where in South Carolina is there a bet
ter town for a Presbyterian College.
Nowhere, in our opinion, is there a town
as good for such an establishment?a
fact that the existence of the College
has proved. In the face of such diffi
culties what other community of Pres
byterians in South Carolina has had the
faith to build a college?
The proiH)sition to move the College
from Clinton seems to have no sound
reason behind it.
No other town will or can offer
enough to be a substantial inducement.
Suppose Bennettsville or Sumter should
offer $50,000?which is far more than
either is likely to offer?that would be,
relatively, of little weight. The inter
est on that sum is about $2,500 the
year. Such an income is a "drop in the
The only hope for the College lies in
cordial, zealous, self-sacrificing support
of the Presbyterians in South Carolina.
If they wish to have a college in South
Carolina they can have it in Clinton, in
Sumter or in Beaufort. They are a rich
denomination. While not so numerous,
as the Methodists or Baptists we sus
pect they are far wealthier in propor
tion; at least we think so. If they
determine to work for a college in the
State as do the Methodists for Wofford
or as the Seceders for Erskine the mat
ter of $50,000 will be of little concern.
They will rally around the College at
Clinton, a well organized little College
which has a good strong faculty and a
healthy college spirit and a creditable
if brief history and a staunch, virile,
sturdy community at its back and they
will give it facilities for a wider use
If Sumter should give $50,000 and
then the College should receive no more
support than it is now receiving, it
would be no larger and more influential
than it is.
Fifty thousand dollars will not estab
lish a College anywhere.
The people of South Carolina, most
of them, thought that the Clemson be
quest of about one hundred thousand
was munificent. A few thinking people
said it was nothing. Now the College
is receiving a hundred and fifty thou
sand dollars each year, and so far as
real College work counts, it is not yet
up to the ranks of Wofford, Erskine
and Furman. It is a fine school, a
valuable school and it fills a place that
no other school fills but it cannot give a
man the real College education that
Wofford or Erskine or Furman can
The real question is, Do the South
Carolina Presbyterians want a College?
Heretofore they have been divided
about it. Davidson has always been
half a South Carolina institution. It has
hundreds of alumni and friends in the
State. Many of these prefer io con
tinue supporting Davidson?a first class
institution, as everybody knows. Many
think the effort to establish a Presby
terian College in competition with Da
vidson, a few miles across the border
in North Carolina was a mistake. We
do not think so. We think the South
Carolina Presbyterians can build a good
College in South Carolina. We think
they have made a good start. We do
not think that it would be good busi
ness policy to move the College from
Clinton for a dollar less than $100,000.
Even then it would be of doubtful wis
The Presbyterians have a great op
portunity to establish a great institu.
tion in Clinton. In any other town it
would ^be necessary to first make the
That the College can succeed in Clin
ton has been demonstrated. It hr.s suc
ceeded practically without money. In
the face of such a fact, to move it
would require audacity on the part of
the College trustees.
The idea of voting the Dispensary
out of Edgeficld. To vote Edgefield
out of the the Dispensary would seem
the natural suggestion.
The movement to vote the dispensary
out of Anderson causea no surprise.

A lady was one day teaching a little

in which each word was accompanied
by an illustration. Polly glibly spelt
"o-x, ox," and "b-o-x, box," and the
teacher thought she was making
"right rapid progress," perhaps even
too rapid. She put her hand over the
picture, and then asked Polly, what
does "o-x" spell? "Ox," answered
Polly, nimbly. "How did you know it
spelled ox?" Polly was as honest as
