Sir: Y" letter bearing date May 1,
1913, received whereof has heretofore
been acknowledged, has been given

close you copy of letter addressed by

Letter to Captains.
State of South Carolina, Executive
Chamber, Columbia, May 5.1913.?
Dear Sir: Under date of May I,
1913, I received a letter form the lion
W. \V. More, the Adjutant General
of South Carolina, copy of which let
ter is herewith enclosed to you, In
which he recommended that your com
pany be mustered out of service, for
the reason stated in the letter.
I hesitate io comply with the recom
mendation of the Adjutant General in
this matter, because I feel that It
would be an injustice in some In
stances, and not advisable In others
at this time. I, therefore take this
means of calling to your attention the
necessity for renewed activity on the
part of yourself an dtho members of
your company. It would be a serious
reflection upon you and your men to
be mustered out of the service. The
? South'a great chieftain, Gen Robert
I E. Lee, said that duty is the BUblimest
word in the English language, and
it has often been said by military ge
niuses that the ilrst duty of a soldier
is to obey orders. This report If the
Adjutant General is to the effect that
your company h;-.s not so done, und it
would he a serious reflection upon
you to muster you oat for this reason,
for it would be a stigma placed upon
you as so'uliers to Bay thai you have
not performed your duty and have not
come up to the requirements.
And 1 feel that to musler yon out of
the service would not only bo a reflec
tion upon you but to muster out as
many as the Adjutant General recom
mends would cause us the loss of
higher officers. We have only three
colonels. Their terms of ofllCO in
militia have been long ami they have
done valuable and efficient service,
and it would certainly be a hardship
upon them to say, "One of you must
go; choose for yourselves which one
It shall be"?not for and neglect 01
duty on their part but because of the
neglect of duty those under them.
And 1 cannot thus reflect upon one
of our colonels until I have bogged
you gentlemen to do your part. You
uiu volunteer soldiers and none should
expect of you that devotion to ser
vice and regular attendance which Is
given by paid men but we. do expect
you to come up to the requirements
laid down for you In the future. I
think a great deal of consideration
should be shown to our volunteer
troops and tlu\t our lvogislature should
give them a greater encouragement
and do more for them. 1 have so
stated and have hoped that the leg
islature would so do. 1 am free to
confess that the Legislature has not
done as much for you as it should
have done. We need good first-class
military organizations at every county
seat in our State, where a company
could always he ready to go forward
at a moment's warning to protect the j
property and lives of our citizens
and particularly to protect our wo-|
manhood, from the assaults of those
who would dostroy and tear down.
In addition to this, we should have
a first-class militia, to ho ready at
all times in case of the United States
I having a war with any other nation
so that we would he prepared to go
forward and do our pari In upholding
our National Government and carry
ing out her policies and defending
her honor. There are other reasons
why we should have a strong militia,
which 1 need not take your time to
rehash, for yon know them all.
In decling to comply with the Adju
tant. General's recommendation, I
realize, as you do, that I am not car
rying out strlckly the letter of the
law, but 1 am taking this course be
cause of my friendship and love for
the hoys who are upholding the vol
unteer militia of this State, and,
, while I am tree to say that I am doing
my full duty, i plead in extenuation
of this fact that I stod upon the floor
j of the Senate and fought this Dielt
law as bard and as bitterly as any
man ever fought any I i\v. ! believed
then that we are making a fearful
mistake in placing these rigid regu
lations upon our volunteer hoys, and
I believe now Hint It would have been
better if this bill had been defeated,
and 1 feel that, by the action which
is now being taken by the Adjutant
General and che action which lias
been taken by him for the last few
years ? asking tha< the companies be
mustered out, Court-martials being
and other actions which speaks loud
er than words?that my position oi?
the floor of the Senate has been fully
sustained, and that we would have
been in better condition had we re
mained as wo were. However, that is
past, and we must now meet the con
ditions Whielt no exist, and I heg of
you to show to the world that I wa.s
justified |ii decling Gen Moore's recom
mendation by getting your men togetti
er, reading this letter to them, doing
all that Is necessary to come up to
the requirements. And let us all get
together and Join hands for a stronger
and better militia.

? hy V. L. and c. L, Weathers. ?
There is a little- community in
Greenville county, that boars the cap
tion of "Hillside". This same com
munity has beon boosted by three
UOWBpapor correspondents, with all
the energy they p0S! <ssed, through
the columns of forr of South Caro
lina's periodicals. This community,
like other wide-awake sections, finally
awoke from Its continued slumbering
and fnlry-dreaining, ami now. these
noble people (along with the liars) arc
reaping the harvest of an Independent
prosperity from the seed of patience
and hard-work sown in the soils of
heart and grain years ago. Fifteen
years ago this section was a wilder
ness, a typical "Dark Corner". Only
a very small per cent, of the land
was cleared; school (auch as It was?
was taught in a- log cabin, which Is
still standing. These people had no
such thing as a church. This method
of living was soon denounced by the
rising generation as they stepped Into
the shoes of the older ones. So they
rolled up their sleeves, pushed back
their hats, and set to work with a
longln' to build a house of worship;
one of education, and to conjure the
obstaelrs that were strewn over their
pathway. They looked into the fu
ture and beheld the realization of their
fondest dreams, and now after a do.
cade and a half has passed their pre
letlou nas proven true. Today this
community is thickly settled by good
citizens 'mostly) of a high moral
character. These Hillside folks now
have, a nice school house, a good
Church, and Just a-plenty to back them
up in :.ll their undertakings. Hill
side has been bu'lt up to where its
future Hor.s and daughters can truth
fully boast of its high ideals and stu
pendous progress that It has made in
the past. It matters not how much
more chnnces of success that the sec
tion along the railway has over the
it matters not how much quicker the
tail way communities think that they
can reap tue harvest of true success,
all we have t< say is "It's just up to
them to do it" that's all.
These people have begun to realize
thai there's more chances to surmount
the pinnacle of success If they use
their brains. So they have set to work
and are using their brains studying
the various methods of farming. The
Hillside people are a church-going
people. Christianity and a high moral
Character are the supreme laws among
them. Their first duty is to God and
their country. Their second duly to
themselves. All along the way their
hearts have whispered hope, thus
bringing their fnlry dream to one of
reality. ISvon when this remarkable
progress overspread thorn they forgo!
not Him! For, all along, looming up
before them, were the words: "Watch
ye, stand last in the faith; quit ye
like men; be strong." They are push
ing forward to a higher plane of
Christianity. When a community is
