University of South Caroliua,
Columbia, S. C., Mar. ' 9.--This
week's letter is written with the ut
most sadness, because the campus has
been made lonely by the removal of
one of our most dear comrades, Roy A.
MUtchell, of ountville. He was dear
not only to the Laurens county boys,
but to the whole student body. This
was shown by the way In which his
remains were honored.'
Our conrade was Roy A. Mitchell, of
Mountville. le was a 'member of the
Sophomore class and stood high - in
it, both in scholarship and in a moral
way. He died in the university initrm
ary last Friday at 2:15 p. in., from a
stubborn case of pneumonia.
Meetings of the student body, the
sophomore class and the Laurens
County Club were held Friday even
ing at which resolutions showing the
high esteem for young Mitchell were
drawn up. The committee appointed
to draw up the resolutions for the
student body was composed of A. G.
Hart, chairman, M. A. Wright and
Frank J. Rodgers. The resolutions
were unanimously adopted by the sev
eral bodies and each body sent beau
tiful floral tributes. On Saturday
morning when the remains were con
veyed to the union station to be sent
to Mountvil,le, almost the entire stu
dent body of five hundred, marched
with bared heads in front of the
Roy was a bright young man and
always wore a smiling face. le was
a bright star taken from our midst.
May God bless and comfort his be
loved ones in their great bereavement,
is our humble prayer.
The following were the resolutions
drawn up by the conimittee:
"Howlg beneath the weight of the
severe shock and deep sorrow which
has come to us this day, in the death
of our friend and fellow student, Roy
Quay Mitchell, and recognizing fue
loss to us of a friend andi partner in
our life; and whereas,

of a gezntleman and companion among
us; and whereas,
"In his course here he had given
large promise of usefulness to his
State and fqllow man, keeping before

have all heard the old Dutch
proverb quoted before, but we
cannot quote it too often: "No grass,
no stock; no stock, no manure; no
manure, no crops." Holland is almost
entirely' a grass and stock country,
and lands are worth on an average
$500 per acre. These people have
found that they can make more out
of land from grass and live stock than
they can by cultivating it.
Unnumbered acres of hill land in
the cotton belt are making less than
one-third bale of cotton per acre, and
at the same time making poverty for
those tilling them. The cost of com
mercial fertilizer applied annually is
appalling. The razor-back terraces,
covered with weeds, grass and briars,
and the circles and short rows pre

per cent., because of the abundance
of money. Then we will have the

to teach longer terms, to improve our

and put telephones and libraries in
