THE NEED OF EDUCATION.
A month ago one strolling into the
l lobby of the county court house in
Ikltendorsonville, N. C, might have
^seen a list posted of two hundred
I or tln-ee hundred persons who had not
' paid their taxes. Their pigs, cows,
roxen and other chattels were adver
tised to be sold at auction, the average
tax due being a dollar or two, costs of
three or four dollars being added in
each case. Possibly the number of ad
feL vertisement was five hundred and most
|9^of them were of white people. The
country people in the mountains of
Western North Carolina are the poor
est people we have ever seen and we
have slept in their houses and eaten at
"Yet the North Carolina mountains
tgwhs are running oyer with" summer
tors who are willing" and able to
spend money. The North Carolina
mountains arc an excellent fruit grow
ing region. But you can't buy fruit
there. The peaches are few and sorry.
Except at Tryon, grapes are scarce.
Watermelons are late and of inferior
quality. Raspberries are scarce when
in season yet nowhere does this deli
cious fruit thrive better. Apples are
plentiful but of indifferent quality.
It is hard to get anything to cat in
Western North Carolina. Charleston
people early in the present season
paid high prices for chickens (35 cents
each for frying size) and sent them by
express to their family in North Caro
lina. These same chickens had been
shipped to Charleston from Tennessee
or North Georgia.
Not much to eat is to be found in
Western North Carolina. The beef as
a rule is not good. The mutton or
lamb is the best of the products and it
is none too common. Sometimes hotels
and towns are out of butter for a day
or two. We are not speaking of this
l^articular summer but from a familiar
Pky of more than 20 years with this
If the mountainers were enterprising
they would have plenty of money. They
are not lazy; they will walk 20 miles
to sell a dozen eggs. They arc exceed
ccctsomical. They are sober and
honest. Their trouble is that they
don't know how to get along. If they
could be taught how to make good but
ter; how to care for poultry and live
stock their pigs and yearlings would
not be advertised to be sold for taxes.
What the mountaineers need is cduca
cation. Four fifths of the poverty in
this country springs from ignorance.
There are golden opportunities in reach
of every nuyi but so many men are too
ignorant to extend a hand and grasp
The steamship lino between Charles
ton and Trieste will bo established; at
least' it is so stated. We hope that it
will be. One and a quarter million im
migrants are landing every year in the
United States. Of course some of them

or other and it is a good thing, we
think, that a few will come directly to
In the South there are not enough
white people to cultivate the land.
Therefore much of the land is cheap.
So long as it is cheap the more thrifty
negroes will buy farms.

v we like to see a negro prosper;
ce to encourage the negroes. At
le time we place above that the
of the whole country,
it for the South, politically,
socially and in every way that two
thirds or more of the population be
white. At present the negroes in South
Carolina have & .large majority of tho
population. South Carolina will not be
a good state for the grand-children of
the white readers of The Advertiskk
unless the white people become numer
ous enough to control tho State. That
is why we are eager that-white immi
grants, whither Germans, Greek, Irish,
English, Italians, Hungarians, or Rus
I sians, be brought to South Carolina.
We want them to come and build
homes. If they go into the cotton
mills the result will be the same; more
of our native white people will stay on
Of course some people rise up and
shout about the "off scouring of Eu
rope" coming here and warn us
against the criminal foreign element.
We have no patience with such talk.
We have known hundreds of foreigners
and an observation is that they average
about as high in the virtues as do white
We hear people talking about the
crimes of the Sicilians when the truth
is that more killings, shootings and
cuttings in proportion to population
occur in the South than in Italy. It is
not a pleasant thing to confess but it
is the truth that the coming to South
Carolina of white immigrants from any
part of Europo would mean a net gain
for law and order. Tho figures show
The presence of the negroes in im
menso numbers is the principal cause
of crimes of violence of the South. As
the Soutlf fills with whites, the negroes
will scatter. The more firmly is the
white man's control is fixed, the less
crime will be done.
"THE BETTER WAY."
A copy-book maxim used to say
"Virture is its own reward" but so
hackneyed became the truth that its
force is dulled. Sentiment moves men
but the frailties of humanity make us
trail wav behind often out of sight
of our ideals. It is pleasant to be com
mended for a good deed by close friends
but it is inspiring to be complimented
from un-cxpected quarters. Good peo
ple are a community's best asset and the
handful of citizens whose acts call forth
the following editorial in the September
issue of the Taylor-Trotwood Magazine
have done Laurens county good.
There happened in South Carolina a
few weeks ago a little incident which
perhaps as clearly as anything could
do, illustrates at least one side of life
in tho South. For years and years
there has been in the little village of
Clinton (pardon us, the thriving city
of Clinton,) a school (again we ask
forgiveness a college) which has been
the pride of the little coterie of earnest
workers and the des iir of all who
were interested in only the strong in
stitutions. In this one way it plugged
along, turning out graduates and D.
Ds., unmindful of poverty and ridicule,
and ever hoping for the good things
that were to come. Nino miles away
there was situated another town about
twice the size of Clinton, the county
scat of Clinton's county. If a Clinton
man bragged, the other town had only
tnC "ITgTfdj tjjem that they had no elcc
both grew their rivalry naturaliy ^ftY,
accentuated. The other day the col
lege took on new life. There was a
big fight about moving it to some
other place, and there were those who
laughed at the size of Clinton with its
kerosene oil lamps and its footpaths
for streets. Then Clinton got together
and found herself. She offered $20.000
and more to keep the college, and rang
bells to rejoice when her deputation
came back from the conference an
nouncing that she had won. With her
$20,000 as a basis, the college began to
grow, then her life long rival, the
Cush, who ever spoke enviously of her,
the Samaritans of nine miles away who
made fun of her for having no electric
lights, did the handsome thing and built
a dormitory of their own money to be
known by their name, and to stand for
ever on the campus of Clinton College
as a monument of the way one town
can help another to be great, even
though the other should be her rival.
Then the whole populace of the smaller
town got together, rang bells, sang
hymns, offered prayers, signed resolu
tions, saying that they, the citizens of
Clinton, assembled, etc.
This is a simple thing to do, and does
not read very much like a romance,
and yet it is. Furthermore, it is worth
more than a hundred romances?it is
what the Germans call a deed-prophecy.
It teaches a lesson to all of the thous
and bickering villages of this country
who woidd tear down the reputation
and standing of their neighbors. It
speaks to cities like Nashville and At
lanta and Memphis and asks them why
t).ny don't back up one another more,
aim reminds them that there are in
the r own limits institutions, publica
tions, enterprises, which although they
arc their very own, yet are not half
supported. What Laurens did for Clin
ton is what Nashville should do for her
magazines, what Atlanta should do for
her schools, and what Memphis should
do for a hundred of her enterprises. It
is worth while pointing out in this con
nection, that only those cities are great
which believe in themselves and their
neighbors, which do not esteem the
other man's position as the prize to be
grasped after, but which rather, recog
nizing true worth everywhere, strive
by united effort to make their own
magazines, their own colleges, their
own enterprise, the very best of all.
Where a city fails to do this thing, she
suffers; whero a state fails to do it,
she Buffers; where a people fail to do
it, they, and they first of all, suffer.
Little Laurens and little Clinton have
shown with their thousands what, big
Nashville and big Atlanta should do
with their hundreds of thousands

Points Well Taken.
The following from theYorkville En
quirer will interest many people in Lau
rcns county and expresses the senti
ment of a great many farmers.
One question The Advertiser wants
to ask is, Why is it thnt so many peo
ple have no respect for another's pro
perty rights? There is a law against
! trespass but nobody pays the least re
I gard to it. Those people who have
good pasture fences can not keep them
up by reason of tresspassers riding
them down. We need in this country
a healthy public sentiment that will re
spect the law and punish offenders.
Judging from the number of people
who have been in to speuk to the editor
about it, tho matter of turning out
cattle after the crops have been gath
ered is one of the livest subjects that
has been touched upon in the Enquirer
in quite a while.
"No good farmer wants cattle run
ning on his land at any time," said one
farmer to the reporter. "The place for
cattle," he continued, "is in the pas
ture, and if yoh have no pasture you
should not try to keep cattle."
Another farmer came along with this
"If there is no law making it a mis
demeanor for a farmer to turn his
stock out, there ought to be."
The farmer made the statement with
such a positiveness of conviction as to
arouse the reporter to argument, and
"Inasmuch as the law allows you to
take .up stock that tresspasses on your
land, and make the owner pay the ex
penses, I don't see why you want any
law to make it a misdemeanor for him
to turn his stock out. You don't care
so long as the stock docs not come on
your land, you have a remedy."
"But what if the stock is on my
neighbor's land, and no fence between,
have I got to sit down and guard my
place until they come on it, losing a
whole lot of time before I can do any
i "No, if you will go about your busi
I ness, and if the cattle damage you in
the meantime you will collect the dam
age off the owner."
"But I've got to take the cattle up
before I can collect damage, haven't
I?" asked the farmer, "and if the
stock do the damage and go away be
fore I get back, what then? Again
suppose it is hogs. It is no trouble to
take up cattle and pen them; hut bow
are you going to catch hogs? You are
not allowed to dog them?"
The reporter colud not answer the
"I like to be a good neighbor," said
another farmer. "I am willing to lend
my tools, my wagon and my stock un
der certain circumstances, and I am al
ways glad to do anything I can in case
of sickness; but when it comes to al
lowing my neighbor's cattle to run on
the fields 1 cultivnte I draw the line.
"Yes, I know what all this involves,"
he continued. "1 have paid the pen
alty more than once. I have incurred
hard feelings and got the reputation of
being mean; but 1 can't help it. I try
to respect everybody's right and I
want people to respect my right at
least in some things. My experience
is that to allow cattle to run on your
land especially in winter, is ruinous to
i^noNv,,.WtVetter;,o\W Yi'lft'r a 'iv'/uie?i
paid to learn that whenever an ani
mal's foot goes down in wet soil there
is going to be a clod, and thousands of
tracks make thousands of clods, and
thousands of clods reduce production to
"years ago when 1 first began farm
ing, I conceived the idea of using my
cotton and corn land for winter pas
ture. I figured that the manure would
add to its productiveness. The next
ciop was smaller than that of the year
before: I did not know what the trou
ble was. The next year's crop was so
much smaller as to suggest that the
land was not worth another trial.
From what others told me as tallying
with my own experience, I concluded
at last that pasturage was the trouble,
and so I just fenced the whole business
as a pasture and quit allowing stock
on cultivated lands. After two years
I plowed the pasture up and found it
better than ever. But no more cattle
on my cultivated lands, if you please.
I have taken up my neighbors cattle
time and again, but I have never
charged anybody for damage. But I
tell you honestly, rather than allow
cattle to run on my land even in winter
after the crops are off- and I mean my
neighbors' cattle, for I never allow my
own to do anything of the kind-I
would take them up and feed them at
my own expense all winter. This, of
course, is provided there not enough to
break me up.''

A Card From Mr. Dial.
I noticed in your paper a day or two
since a report of tho proceedings
of the meeting of * the minority
stockholders .of Ware Shoals
Mfg. Company, which was held
here the other day. For obvious rea
sons I will not discuss the affairs of
this compuny public-ally for the present.
I desire to state, however, that the re
porter failed to get several material
points in the case, still tin; resolution
expresses our grievances s. I expressly
stated I did not call the meeting for
the purpose of arousing sympathy,
or with a view of speaking
harshly of anyone, but only with the
following purpose in view, to wit: To
placo before the stockholders all the
facts and information I had so wo could
beat protect our interests.
I spoko with nicther mush in my
mouth or briars in my feet. I urn al
ways willing to bo judged by my home
I am writing a history of this enter
prise which will be put in paniphlot
form and, no doubt, at the proper time,
it will bo distributed.
