mr. fi:atiikrstonf.\s candidacy.
The recent declination of the Hon.
Richard i. Manning of Sumter to enter
the race this year for the governorship
has been the occasion of very general
comment by the various newspapers
or the Stale. The chief significance of
Mr. Manning's withdrawal, as reflected
in many editorial expressions, and in
the opinion of numbers of public and
private citizens who are familiar with
the situation, H?h in the iact Ihut ii
practically assurres the election of Mr,
However, whatever bearing (he
changed political alignments may have
upon tin* race. Mr. Feat heist one is
prepared to wage a vigorous campaign,
both from the standpoint of a prohi
bitionist, and a business man of large
Commenting on the gubernatorial
race with reference to the situation as
brought about by Mr. Manning's deci
sion the Columbia Record says:
"From the present situation it ap
pears that Hie race for governor will
open up with M.r. Featkerstone appeal
ing most strongly to the prohibition
vote, by reason of his long advocacy
of thai policy, and to the conservative,
business element by reason of his
ability as a lawyer and business man."
And in this connection the following
extract from an editorial article ap
pearing in The Advertiser several
months ago relative to Mr. Feather
stone as a "business man" and bis con
sistent efforts in behalf of prohibition
"tie (Mr. Featberstone) is a success
ful and practical business man: is one
of the strongest lawyers in the State;
he has had experience in the direction
of large affairs: his reputation is un
spotted; he lias that best of balance
wheels, "a saving sense of humor."
and he has common sense. He is no
half-way man in anything and, regard
less or his \iows on the liquor traffic,
he would administer the affairs of the
commonwealth in a wise and successful
manner. We know of no man who has
less of the fanatic In his temperament,
and as governor his course would be
directed by the same broad-guaged
judgment that would make him the
successful head of a plantation, a bank
or a railroad
"And again. Mr. Featherstone has
clone twice as much for the cause of
prohibition as has any other living
man in South Carolina. When the pro
hibition campaign of ISftS was about
to collapse Mr. Featherstone seized Its
fallen banner and the race he made for
governor was one of the most re
markable in the recent history of the
State. The people discovered then thai
he was a man of power, and in spite
of the domination of th eState dis
pensary he lacked only about three
thousand votes of defeating the late
Cover nor 1011 erbe, who bad also the
second-term sentiment in bis favor. In
1000 Mr. Featherstone exerted himself
to the utmost to bring about the elec
tion of the late Col. .lames A. Hoyt,
and during bis whole career be has
been not only a consistent but a work

MEDICAL SCHOOL INSPECTION*
Tho popor of Dr. Edgar A. Ulnes of
Seneca which was rend beforo tho
State Medical association here last
week and which had for its theme
"Medical Inspection of Schools," prob- i
ably created more general interest.
than any other. It was an appeal for
legislative enactment and the asso
ciation, after endorsing the paper, re-,
ferred it to its committee on leglsla-?
Dr. Mines is a member of the State,
board of health, chairman of the hoard
of trustees of the Seneca schools, and
Withal a very accomplished gentleman.
He has made personal examination or
Inspection of the children in the Seneca
schools, and his paper included re
ports of these investigations. While
here i>r. nines took occasion to visit;
the city school, and upon the Invlta-1
tlon of Sunt. Jones made a little talk,
telling something about the work at i
Soneca. He complimented the Laurens;
school and its management upon the
adoption of a hygienic system, the
line school building, grounds and so
Dr. Hines points out that the physi
cal side of school life has been made
secondary to that of the mental and
moral, and then proceeds to show that
the conservation of tho children is the
most Important thing in this country.
"The school child is the greatest asset,
the mil ion has and as such wo can
turn our attention to no more potent
force for tin' nation's good. That the1
function of the physician." continues
Dr. Hines "nhould not cease With the
birth of the child Is conceded, that is
has done so in many instance's is con.
elusive, and that the oversight of the
child's environment and tho child it
self through school life has been neg
lected by the profession tit large is
undoubted. Childhood is where the
foundation should be laid broad and
firm or else the superstructure will
fall short of the development which
should follow. This is the most op
portune moment I believe in which to
launch a State-wide movement for the
hygiene of the school child."
His review of the work at Seneca,
beginning last September, is here
"The staff of examiners consisted of
two competent dentists, tin eye and
ear. nose and throat specialist, two
general practitioners and a secretary,
tho teachers rendering efficient aid at
times. There was 200 pupils and from
f*. to IS years?consisting of all pupils
from first and the tenth grades?with
the following results:
Teeth defects -Number of pupils.

to the idea that prevails, Fewer se

whites; more skin lesions. I did not
examine for adenoids. A fair propor

I also examined a representative
number of cotton mill children among
the whites. Ninety per cent, bad bad
teeth, not one used a tooth brush. The
other defects differed little from the
average school child."

THE GUBERNATORIAL RACE
Featherstone The Man.
The Journal has felt, for a long time,
that Mr. C. C. Feutherstone was tho
man for governor of South Carolina.
This, to aay nothing of hits record as
a consistent, staunch prohlUitlonlst
which as we see It, makes him only the
more desirable For this honorable and
Feeling this way we are glad to note
that Mr. Richard I. Manning has with
drawn from the race and we are quite
sure many others feel the same way.
In this connection wo wish to en
ter a protest against the part one or
two preachers?who are no doubt pro
hibitionists?are taking in trying to
get the support of prohibitionists for
Mr. Hyatt, of Columbia. Mr. Myatt.
at Is seems to us, is not in it, and to
bring him out will only serve to de
crease the majority for Featherstone.
Of course, there are people who
would like to see prohibitionists di
vided, but we should not do the thing
that our friends the enemy with us to
do. All together for Featherstone for
governor, and Chas. A. Smith for lleu
tenant governor and wo shall win with
hands down.?Greenwood Journal.
I,nuicns .Man Has the Lead.
The announcement that Hon. R. I.
Manning of Sumter will not be In the
nice for governor this year comes as
a surprise, and It Is the most im
portant piece of political news that we
have had in some time.
It has been generally thought that
Mr. Manning would be In the race.
He is everywhere recognized as one
of tho ablest and cleanest met) in the
State, and no man in the State is more
popular personally. lie would have
had a strong following in every section
If he had been iii the race. The an
nouncement of his decision will no
doubt he received with keen regret by
a great many people who had hoped
for the pleasure of supporting him.
Mr. Mannings action, we believe,
practically assures the election of Hon.
C. C. Featherstone of Haurens. There
will be other candidates in the He!4>
of course, but Mr. Featherstone has
such a long lead that we do not think
it can be overcome. At the same time
we assume that Mr. Featherstone f.nd
his friends will not take too much for
granted but will make a vigorous cam
paign from start to finish.?Anderson

QEO. L. PITTS.
For Probate Judge.
We are authorized to announce the
name of O. (J. Thompson as a candi
date for the office of Probate Judge,
subject to the rules of the Democratic
County Trustees' Association.
A few weeks ago over one hundred
of the trustees of the schools of Lau
rens County met in the court house
and perfected an organization to be
known as "The Trustee Association
of the Schools of Laurens County."
No organization should be brought in
to existance without a definite work ! |
in view. That work should have as i |
its goal the rendering of the greatest
assistance** to the greatest number I
of individuals in the community In
which it operates. The object of the
Trustee association of the Schools of
Laurens county is to furnish to every
child In the county the opportunity of
attaining a first class High school ed
ucation. Having received the High
school training, it will not be such a
difficult matter to go through college
If he so desires. Retter prepared teach
ers, longer term and more comforta
ble school houses tire some of the
more important things we need, very
trustee In Laurens county is a mem
ber of this association whether he
wants to be or not. We want to ac
quaint you Mr. Trustee with your du
ties to your teacher, patrons and
school in general.
This association should bring the
trustees of the county In closer touch
with each other. By so doing we
should be of great help to each other.
Let every trustee pledge himself to
make this association a great value
to all the schools In our territory.
Our next meeting was to he in June,
but Supt. Pitts suggested that as the
trustees were to be appointed In July,
it would be better to have It in July.
Due notice will be given of said meet
ing and we want every trustee In the
county to be present. Every school
should add to. build a new or renovate
their school building where It Is need
ed. Help can be obtained from State
and county to do this work. If a school
will raise $100.00 the State will give
S?O.OO and the county will give $50.00.
The maximum amount given by State
and county is $000.00 provided the
school district will raise an equal
amount. This is a most excellent
ehnnce to Improve that old delapidated
OUt-Of-dOte building of yours. So Mr.
Trustee see Supt. Pitts at once about
this mater. This is one of your many
duties. Do not put off electing your,
teachers for another year until I'.O days
before your school Is to open. Now is
the time, before your teachers leave,
tell them you want them, if you do (?).
If you do not, just keep your mouths
shut, unless they nsk you. Pay your
teacher a decent salary and you will
get a better teacher. Remember you
can't get a teacher now at the salary
you paid 20 years ago. Pay better
salaries and demand better services.
Let the trustees of Laurens county
awake to their opportunities and wo
will have better conditions along
school lines at a very early date.
