LAURENS, S. C, SEPTEMBER 18,1907.
If the Republican national conven
tion could nominal<? the Democratic as
well as the Republican candidates for
President, it would nominate Bryan in
the former capacity. Then it would
proceed to nominate Taft, Hughes,
Cannon, Root or even Cortelyou in the
certain belief that anybody can defeat
Bryan. Meantime the signs are plenti
ful that tho Democrats will do pre
cisely what the Republicans would have
' The proceedings against the Isle of
Palms "blind tiger" last week were
rather funny. The "blind tiger" had
clesed three days before the papers were
served. Tha injunction can have no
practical effect until next season. Why
the injunction was not obtained before
is difficult to conjecture.
Boys entering college at this season
should study hard from the start and
one of the subjects that should have
their attention is what they are going
to do with themselves when they grad
uate. Four years is none too long to
spend In college but a youth of sixteen
is old enough to know what kind of work
he likes. 'This does not mean that he
should decide at sixteen upon a profes
sion but that he sliould begin to ponder
about it. For example, a boy who is
fond of mathematics is more likely to
have an aptitude for civil engineering
than is another who likes literature.
Such a boy may choose branches of
study in college that will be of much
practical benefit when he begins to
study tor a profession. One who ex
pects to be a physician should devote
himself to chemistry in college and he
should give attention to botany and
zoology. One who wishes to be a law
yer should learn all the logic, history,
English literature and constitutional
law that he can.
The study of English literature affords
mind training quite as good as that
which the study of Greek affords. A
knowledge of it is a useful working
looI of a lawyer, editor or preacher but
Greek is worth tho time and labor re
quired to learn it to extremely few
Boys should understand that the
modern languages are coming to be of
more practical value every day. We
believe that a boy who masters Spanish
or German will on that account be able
to obtain a first rate position as com
mercial traveler in South America or in
Europe, Asia or Africa. The commerce
of this country is rapidly widening,
"drummers" will be sent to foreign
countries by American houses in a few
years just as they are sent to travel in
the States now.
College professors shovrid teach their
students to study themselves and the
professors should watch their tastes
and characteristics. The courses of
study shpuld be arranged so that the
student should obtain not merely a
good mental discipline but all the prac
tical information possible. The old
theory that a student should be taught
abstract mathematics, moral and men
tal philosophy, Latin and Greek and
then turned out to begin over and
pick up practical information afresh
has played out. Life is so short that
the four years in college should contri
bute to stocking a boy's mind with use
ful as well as ornamental information.

THE SENATORIAL RACE.
Mr. John C. Clinkscales, a professor
in Wofford College, is said to be a candi
date for the United States Senate. We
know nothing about him. He is de
scribed as a ready speaker, a lively and
nimble stump-speaker who can hold his
own with most people. He is a good
man,, of pure morals. That is going to
be his strong point. The people who
are opposed to whiskey and gambling
and "cussing around" and slandering
and abusing people are dominant in
South Carolina. These people, includ
ing many of tho former leaders of the
"Farmer's Movement," are sick of the
atylo of man that Ben Tillman is. Of
course all of us are willing for Tillman
to stay in the Senate. It is better to
have him out of the State than in the
State poisoning and firing the people's
minds and hearts against each other
and stiring passion that cause all man
ner of trouble. What a wonderfully
pleasant thing it has been that the
Chatauquas are willing to pay Ben
Tillman handsomely to speak! Not in
lrl years have we had such a comforta
ble summer as this one just past with
.jno Tillman bobbing up here and there
to denounce some good man or other as
a liar or thief or rascal. Wo hope that
- "Yankee money*' will continue to
tempt him to stay out of the neighbor
hood of his own constituents in the
summer time and that the supply of it
will never give out. Then let him atay
in the Senate. If he shows any symp
tom of getting tired, let them raise the
salary from $7,600. te $10,000., so that,
peradventure, ho will change his mind
and stay a while longer.
So far as this Mr. Clinkscales is con
cerned, he his nover dono anything or
said anything that we have heard
that stamps him as a man of the big
ness to represent this state in tho great
council of the world's greatest nation.
To wear worthily the honors of a sena
tor a man moat have intelligence, char
acter and catholicity of view lifting
him far above his fellows. One of the
six or eight strongest men in South
Carolina should be elected to the United
States to succeed Mr. Latimer but pro
bably not one of them could be elected.
Only one or two men of known power
as leaders of men are oven mentioned
in connection with the office. Mr.
Clink8cale8 may prove to be a man of
power but he has not yet proved it.
Probably he could rattle off glibly the
catalogue of things that he has
done and said but you could not point
to one single notable achievement in
his career. But you could point to Mr.
Latimer and say that he has had a
chance and that there is nothing to be
shown on the balance side of this ac
count except the getting of a few fed
eral court houses and other small ap
propriations together with tho estab
lishment of rural routes. To be sure,
he is said to have made a fortune for
himself and we have no objection, pre
suming of course that he made it legi
timately. It is a creditable thing to
make a fortune. Old General Pettus
and old General Morgan of Alabama to
whom the people of this Republic from
Oregon to Florida lifted their hat in
token of unconscious American respect
for brains and high character didn't
make money while in congress. Oppor
tunities didn't come their way. They
were singularly unlucky men or else
they were of mighty little account; if
to die poor is1;he test. Perhaps they
were slow workers, for they never found
time to devote to any -other interest
than that?not that of their Alabama
constituents?but that of their Ameri
can fellow citizens.
We would pick a man who would do
credit to South Carolina in the Senate.
He is able. He is an excellent speaker.
He ia thoroughly educated. He is clean
of tongue and hand. His life has been
given largely to that kind of work
which elevates his people especially
young men and for which the return in
money is little more thnn a first class
carpenter earns in a city. He is mod
est. One hears his name infrequently
for he does not vaunt himself but there
are written in the records of this state
utterances of his that worked mightily
for the cause of good good government
and high morality. Personally, we
know him scarcely at all but one does
not need to shake hands with a man
and slap him on the shoulder familiarly
if one knows how to know. Were he
to speak here in Laurens those hear
ing him would not have many opportu
nities to laugh for he has no qualifica
tions whatever for the vaudeville
stage. Many would go away disap
pointed because they had not heard the
voice of either a fool or a demigogue
but in the United States Senate this
gentleman, still in the prime of man
hood, would be pointed to as an Ameri
can thinker who could be trusted to
mark out the lines of a people's pro
gress. But we shall not name him.
What would be the use?.
MILLION BALES FOR SOUTH CAROLIN\
The Crop, it is Estimated, Will Yield to
the Farmers $68,500,000.
(from the state)
With over 1,000,000 bales of cotton
to be marketed in South Carolina this
year, at the existing prices, the income
from the baled cotton will fall little
short of $60,000,000. In addition to
this, if all the sec I is sold, an additional
$8,500,000 will be paid for that product
to the farmers of the Palmetto state.
This means much more for South
Carolina than most people think at first
glance. It means first of all, a pros
perity never before known to a hard
working, striving people. It means al
so the forging ahead of a state *now
leading in many other branches of in

world-wide recognition of the south's

you dry your face on a cotton towel;
you array yourself chiefly in cotton
clothing; the "silk" in which your wife
dresses is probably mercerized cotton;
at the breakfast table you do not get
away from King Cotton; cotton oil has
probably taken the place of lard in the
biscuit you eat and even these may be
made of cotton seed flour; the beef and
the mutton are probably fattened on
cotton seed meal and hulls; your "im

Texas cotton farm than from an Italian

is put up in a cotton bag and may be
adulterated with cotton seed hulls;

THE DEMAND FOK
Sup*. Martin and Prof. Hand Held Con
fereoce Concerning New
Columbia. Sept. 12.?(Special). State
Superintendent of Education Martin
and Prof. W. H. Hand, who is high
school inspector under the new law,
were in conference today concerning
the establishment of high schools under
the Act of 1907. Mr. Hand now has
a list of 43 high school districts which
have qualified under the law. having
held an election and voted a special
tax. These 43 high school districts in
clude 150 common school districts, as in
many cases, several school districts
combine to establish a high school.
There are six or seven other districts
which have partially complied with the
high school regulations and which will
doubtless be able to qualify by the time
the State Board meets on the 20 inst.,
to consider these applications. It would
be well for those districts which have
held elections and are planning to se
cure high schools to send in their ap
plications before that date.
Each of these high schools will re
ceive from $300 to $800., the average
being about $500. At this rate only
about one half of the appropriation of
$50,000 will bo utilized this year. The
amount received by each high school
under the act cannot exceed 50 per
cent, of the amount raised by the high
school districts, through a special tax
or otherwise, and the matter is regula
ted by a rule adopted by the State
Board, as follows: An approved two
year high school shall receive $000, an
approved three year high school $700,
and an approved four year high school
$800; provided that in each case the
above amounts shall not be more than
GO per cent, of the annual income of
such high schools; provided, also, that
schools which meet tho requirements
of the act and of the Board's regula
tions in regard to courses of study and
number of teachers, but do not have
annual incomes double either of the
above amounts, shall receive 50 per
cent, of this annual income available
for high school purposes; provided,
further, that for each additional fifty
high school students above the first
100 of enrollment a high school shall
receive $100 of additional aid and that
an approved high school having at least
$.'100 worth of equipment for teaching
industrial and commercial branches
shall receive an additional $100 a year,
provided of course that the total aid
does not exceed 50 per cent, of the an
nual income of any high school district.
The State Board has reserved the right
to apportion any unexpended balance
upon the basis of enrollment to the
schools which have not recoived as
much as 50 per cent, of their annual in
come for high school purposes.
The enrollment of 50 or more high
schools within one ye r in South Caro
lina, as now seems pi oable, will be a
very good start indeed towards secur
ing a high school system to fill the gap
between the common schools and the
colleges. This step forward is secured
at a very small cost to the State, com
paritively, and the success that has fol
lowed the enactment of the high school
law shows how easy it is with little
effort and organization to induce com
munities to improve their school condi
tions. While the State makes an ap
propriation for these high schools the
communities themselves really bear the
burden and in this way the principal of
self help is impressed upon the pupil.
Mr. Martin today sent to the county
superintendents of education the fol
lowing letter in regard to this matter:
To the County Superintendents.
Dear Sirs?Wo are very anxious to
get the high school applications into
the best possible shape prior to the
meeting of the State Board of Educa
tion on September 20th. There are
many places which have voted favor
ably but have not filed their applica
tions. The State Board can not take
action unless it gets the information
asked for in that blank. Some places
voted early as single districts and sent
in their applications in accordance with
such elections. Nearly all of these
have since voted as "an aggregation of
districts" and these complied with the
law, but in some cases the amended ap
plication has not been filed. Please use
your influence to get all of these papers
correctly filled and filed at once. The
State Board of Education will probably
make arrangements to receive applica
tions after the 20th instant, but it is
highly desirable that as many reports
as possible be sent in at once.
Inclosed you will find some blanks
which ask for information up to date.
Please see that one is filled out at once
for each high school district in your
