* IMMEDIATE SETTLEMENT. *
Rev. C. F. Rankiu huts received the
following letter from Dr. D. J. Brlmm,
of the Presbyterian College at Clin
Clinton, S. C. July 24, 1912.
Dear Bro. Rankln:
1 have just gotten home and read
the Advertiser, giving an account of
the Chicora controversy, coniirents,
etc. I think your people have not on
ly the moral but the legal right to
carry the matter to the Presbyteries.
The board has made an egregious
blunder about Chicora and I am afraid
the Institution Is going to suffer se
riously because of it. Just what the
final outcome will be, if the matter
is taken before the Presbyteries is, of
course. Impossible to foresee but you
ought not to lose this chance to estab
lish another strong Presbyterian col
lege. The people of Laurens have
done splendidly. They deserve to have
a good college and no matter what the
outcome of the fight they can have
1 don't see much chance for rapid
growth for Chicora now and two
smaller colleges will he better than
one big one anyway. Our Baptist
odists have two strong ones besides
one or two co-educational; the Meth
odists have two strong ones besites
some co-educational; the A. R. P.'s
have two for girls. Unless Chicora
is enlarged and improved it cannot
accommodate half our girls and Clif
ford is not strong enough to count.
We ought to get hold of it and make
it a strong preparatory school for
girls, where physical culture would
be stressed. The longer the contro
versy over Chicora continues the more
detrimental it will be to it, whether
it stays at Greenville or is removed
to Laurens and so I believe further
agitation is. to be deprecated.
We need a school for girls of a
somewhat, different type front Chicora,
In which the industrial and profession
al features are emphasized more. That
is the only way In which the overflow
from Winthrop can be taken care of.
Our church schools have got to get
in more of the "practical" so-called,
because the age demands It. The very
principle on which *rc justify church
schools requires it. And so I sug
gest that you do not allow the thing
to grow cold but move forward and
establish at Laurens a college for
women, In which with a first-class
academic curriculum there will be
thorough training in all branches of
Pedagogy, and in all the Industrial
lines that are so much stressed at
I am persuaded that Clinton and the
other towns In the county will add
handsomely to what Laurens has so
handsomely started. Don't let the
enthusiasm evaporate. With $2r>,000
contributed from all the rest of Lau
rens county, you would have a school
as strong as Chicora will be after It
gets $50,00? from the campaign now
We need, and badly need, a Female
College df high grade In which the
vocational features are emphasized,
duly. We lost the Presbyterian Col
lege for Women in Columbia which
was established almost entirely with
Presbyterian contributions. I have
had a talk with Rev. Mr. Jones here
and he seems to hold about the same
views that 1 do. Though he was dis
posed to buck against you in the re
moval of Chicora to Laurens, he says
we would all back up the new college
at Laurens, or words to that effect.
lCxcuse me for saying so much In
such "sizzling" weather but the tiling
is profoundly important, as I see It.
There is danger of serious injury to
education In our Synod and there Is
also the possibility of a splendid for
ward movement, if the situation be
rightly handled. I believe that with
your tact and wisdom and influence
you can pull it through.
D. J. Brlmm.

In loving remembrance of little Arle,
the son of Mr. and Mrs. Belton Coop
Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe on his gentle breast,
There by his love o'ershaded,
Sweet his little soul shall rest.
And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes and there shall be no
more death, neither sorrow nor cry

when the day of life has fled and In
heaven with joy to greet thee, where
no farewell tears are shed.

Madden, Aug. 13.?As these lines are
being penned, the Live Stock show at
Madden is a very much alive affair.
The vehicles have been coming since
early dawn. The "wise ones" say
there'll be 2,000 people here. The ad
vance guard arrived last night and
the demonstrators and lecturers had
a splendid and attentive audience.
Profs. Jackson and Burgess of Clem
son and Editor Hunnlcutt, of "The
Southern Cultivator" entertained the
people in a pleasant and profitable
manner. The first two Ulsutrated their
lectures with lantern slides, which
were quite instructive and much en
joyed by the audience.
The meeting at Now Prospect which
was conducted for nearly two weeks
by tue Rev. Juo. ?. Pitts, of Blackville
closed last Thursday night. It wus
an especially good meeting, marked
by deep spirituality and we believe
lasting good was accomplished.
A touching feature of the closing
night was the invitation extended by
Mr. Jno. R. Pinley, one of the oldest
members of the church, for Dr. Pitts
to come back the Fourth Saturday in
July, 1913, Cod willing, and preach
again. This the church made unani
mous. Then they all, irrespective of
sex or uge, told Bro. Pitts an affec

A very serious accident was very
uarrowly averted last week when
Mr. and Mrs. Bee Culbertson were in
a run-away scrape. On their way
from church the mule which they were
driving rnn over a child's small play
wagon just in front of Mr. J. D. Cul
bertson's store and ran away. For
tunately neither Mr. or Mrs. Culbert
.son >ior the little boys were thrown
out though the buggy was wrecked
before the mule was stopped.
I Owing to the meeting and also to the
sickness of one of the cast, the Dicey

Mr. P. H. Wofford though now a
Westerner, still takes a keen Interest
In his native state and Is of the opin
ion that South Carolina In justice to
her self should repudiate Please.
Mrs. Wofford a native of Spartn
burg, cast her first vote In California
and is of the opinion that if woman
suffrage prevailed here there would
have not prevailed the disgraceful
scene in Spartanburg when Mayor
Grace of Charleston was bombarded
with rotten eggs. This Is certain:
If women in South Carolina could

Still, anyhow, It will be that way.

Mr. Tom M. Shaw brought an un

city the other day. Although the stalk
was very tall, being six feet nnd nine
inches high, the longest limb on it
was hardly six inches In length. It
looked more like a young sapling than
a stalk of cotton. It had just about
thirty squares on It, some healthy and
some which would hardly have matur
ed. Although Mr. Shaw states that
all of his cotton is of good growth,
the fruit Is lacking. However, this
was not a sample, being the only one

be not encouraged, be pulled it up and
