THE SCHIRMER CASE.
The board of visitors of the South
Carolina Military Academy have a
way of adjusting difficulties that is
simply wonderful. Such a genius for
compromise was never exhibited be
rore by any body of men. hIardly
anything short of inspiration could
have effected a settlement of the mat
ter brought before them. that is so
beautifully adapted to please nobody.
A numher of Cadets charged Cadet
Schirmier. a sergeant of the corps,
with being ""guilty of conduct unbe
coming a gentleman." The board af
ter a laborious inquiry into the
charge. adopted a resolution that in
effect entirely exonerates Cadet

facts and circumstances developed,while
the board has acquitted Cadet Schirmer
in the Court of Inquiry, of the charge

facts and circunst:aIces had not exhibi

him to discharge the duties of an officer
ut-efually to the Academy. Cadet Schir
ner's appointment as a sergeant, of the
torns is therefore hereby revoked.
This to soothe the other cadets.
The facts and circumstances, so far
as published, show nothing that could
have any relation to Cadet Schirmer's

THE FARMERS' CONVENTION.
We have watched with consideta

Bennettsville meeting. We don't
pretend to know muuch about agricul
ture, but this we do know, that
some farmers are in the same condi

. every meeti::g of this kind will teach
many something which they did not

There is nothing like atn inter
change of ideas, to quicken interest
and activity in any business.
There should be in every county of
the State a Farmer-s' Association, just
as there should be a Teachers' Asso

lBar A ssociation.
The meeting seemLs to h.wve been a
pleasant one, and we have no doubt
that it will result in profit to the
farming interest of the State.
