THE MEETING TO-DAY.
Mayor Goggans, in accordance with
the instructions of the council, has issued
a call fora meeting of the citizens of the
town of Newberry to be held in the
Opera House this. Thursday, afternoon
to consider the question of hghting the
town by electricity. This is an impor
tant matter and if adopted means an
increase in the expenses of the town.
There should then be a full meeting.
The Herald and News has for several
years advocated this scheme. Our
town is poorly lighted. No one will
question that. And a part of the time
the moon is depended upon to furnish
the light and no allowance is made for
cloudy nights. With this sort of light
furnished by about 75 kerosene lamps
the cost to the town is about $1,000 a
r. Now the question is would it
not becheaper to add another $1,000 to
this and have better lights and have
them every night in the year. It may
cost less than $2,000 a year for elec
tricity, and we are inclined to think
that it would.
Those who have experience in this
matter say that for our town with its
narrow streets and its many shade
ees that the incandescent light will
be better than the are light, and that
for our town it would take about 80 of
these incandescent lights. One com
pany has offered to furnish them at $2:
a year apiece, making for the 80 lights
$2,000 a year. We are inclined to think
that it will take about 100 of these lights
which on this basis will cost $2,500 a
year. But these figures are only'ap
proximate. The details will have tc
be arranged afterwards. Certainly the
cost will not be greater than indicated
above and probably less.
We are inclined to think that ar.
rangements can be made to secure thesE
lights at a much less cost.
We ought to have in connection
with this' electric plant a system o:
water works, and by combining the
two the cost might be reduced.

THE MODERN SYSTEM OF EDUCA
An Examination of its Theory and Practice.
[Written for the Herald and News.1
With his education tinged with the
folk-lore of the tribe, the prehistoric
boy at last reaches manhood and is
armed with a real bow and arrow. He
is now admitted to the ranks of fight
ing men. Nor is this picture of the
earliest education an entirely imagina
tive one, for it is almost exactly the
training of a Mosaic youth of the
day according to the narrative of the
distinguished young explorer of Central
Africa, Mr. Joseph Thompson of the
Royal Geolographical Society of Great
The first truths learned by the indi
vidual and the race being physical
truths, it would scarcely be unreason
able to expect to find in every good
cause of instruction a due appreciation
of the value of the natural sciences.
Professor Huxley has indeed said that
the first experiment a man makes is a
physical experiment, explaining his
remark by comparing the principles of
the suction pump to the first act of the
new born babe. And throughout his
entire life, man spends by far the great
est portion of his time, either conscious
ly or unconsciously, in contemplating
and dealing with physical laws. As
has already been seen, savage tribes
meet this fact squarely and this train
ing-sueh as it is-is confined to such
knowledge as will be immediately re
quired by the young. The education
of the infant, in every stage of human
progress, for a time at least, proceeds in
a somewhat similar manner. For rea
sons at first glance inexplicable, how
ever, as soon as the child really begins
to think, to observe, to experiment, to
inquire-in a word, to have his curi
osity aroused and his interests excited
both in regard to himself and the world
about him, his education undergoes a
complete transformation. The off
spring of civilized parents scarcely
learns the lessons taught young sav
ages before in many cases-physical
laws are almost entirely ignored.
Truths, for example, which, it taught
during infancy would be of vital in
portance to the health, happiness and
usefulness of the child, are too often
lost sight of; and the education of the
pupil in life's school frequently pro
ceeds in a manner both unnatural and
irrational. Passing over the very earli
est period of childhood, the most im
pressive time of life, when the babe is
often entrusted to those wholy unfit
for their charge, we see the boy or the
girl "starting to school" and not infre
quently introduced to a systed of train
ing which, if wilfully contrived to ex
tinguish every latent spark of genius,
could not succeed better. Almost every
body has experienced this wonderful
difference between the knowledge
.gained before and after entering a
school and that he is often unwillingly
set to learn after crossi:g the threshold
of a school-house. Right here, then,
we stumble upon one of the great
problems of modern education. Why
this difference between the knowledge
taught by the world and that taught
by the school? To this question there
are, of course, many answers. One
answer may possibly be found in th.
lack of interest in the subject by those
most directly affected by it. Another
answer may be found in the ignorant
hostility sometimes encountered by all
systems of education. The answer
more nearly!approaching the.truth may
however, be found in the .fact that
we are still pursuing plans of instruc
tion adopted centuries ago by people
radically differently situated from our
own. Assuming, however, that in our
-notion, at least, there is no occasion for
discussing the first two answers, let us
briefly examine the third.
Anything like the history of educa
-tion would, of course, be the history of
the human race. It would be neces
sary, for example, to trace the slow
steps by which man emerged out of
barbarism. We should be obliged to
know how the race acquired its knowl
edge of language, written and spoken;
of law, of government, oif science, of
art, of everything that embellishes life,
and makes it possible. But we may,
tto some extent, catch gleams of the
dawn of our civilization in "the cradle
of human culture"-the Nile-land
While it is interesting to know that
the home of the Pharaoh's was early
the home of civilization, a knowledge
iof Egyptian education would be of im
portance to us mainly for the reason
that Greece borrowed so much of the
culture from the Nile. But although
historians agree that Egypt was ever
renowned as the school of wisdom; that
the gigantic statues and columns of the
land have long been the monuments of
Iher inventive and artistic genius; that
her colossal sphinxes and mysterious
pyramids have for centuries been a
riddle to the world; that her people
were the first to establish libraries;
calling them "the remedy for the dis
Ieases of the soul"; that "the kingdom
bestowed its noblest labors and finest
arts on the improvement of mankind"
and that her wonderful inventors "were
scarcely ignorant of anything which
-could contribute to accomplish the
mind, or procure ease and happiness,"
yet we are in a great measure ignorant
of what was taught in her schools and
the methods of that institution. The
-arts, the sciences, the civil professions
must have flourished there. Tradition
has it, moreover, that eminent Greeks
like Homer, Pythagoras, Plato, Solon
and -Lycurgus journeyed thither in
search of truth; and Moses himself is
said to have been "learned in all the
,wisdom of the Egyptians."I
It seems, however, that knowledge
-among the Egyptians was monopolized
-by the priests and rulers. Writing, for
expmple, was a mysterious secret
known only perhaps to the hierarchy,
its very name signitiying a sacred mys
tery. 'Weber moreover is the authority
for the statement that "the curse of
the caste-system lay upon every exter
nal manifestation of life, whilst super'
stition and religious oppression gave a
-gloomy coloring to existence, and dis
turbed every cheerful and pleasurable
feeling. The statue of Harpocrates,
with his finger upon his lips, stood at
the entrance to the temples and put the
seal of silence upon the masses. With
a despotic government, there was no
such thing as personal freedom. Lack
ing free development and creative in
dustry, Egyptian genius is said to have
been directed only towards useful pro
jects. Egypt did this much for us,
however-and that is a very great deal

He did not get to make his trip t
Spartanburg to-day to make arraug
nients for the sale of the experiwentd
station at that point as he hid inteudec
as there were no railroad connection:
but came directly here from Fendletol
He will spend Monday in his ofiic
working olf some of the accumulatiot
of busines and in the afternoon will g
to Darlington, there to arrange for ti
sale of the experimental station. i
expects to reach Spartanburg by tli
end of the week. The following men
bers of the board attended the mre
ing: Secretary of State Tindal, D. I
Norris, J. E. Bradley, President Strod
and Superintendent Dugger, of th
experimental station. The board wa
entertained by President Strode at th
old Calhoun mansion, in which h
lives. The board held a lengthy mee
ing, and here is a summary of resull
as given by Mr. Tindal.
They discussed at length the be:
management of the farm at t leniso
for the present year, and Super:nter
dent Dugger of the farm was instructe
as to what lands to plant during th
year. They will be planted in cor
oats and forage. It was decided 1

tain lands exclusively for the use <
the station. He was instructed to e
tablish a garden for the use of the Co
lege in addition to one for the use of t1:
convicts. The board directed the pr<
paration of land for the experiments
LAND FOB EXPERIMENTS.
Land was ordered to be prepare
especially for the requirements of e2
periments on established scientif
principles. It was also decided to la
the foundation for a College herd<
cattle and the board will purcha!
twelve head of thoroughbred cattle at
thirty head of grade cows and "sprini
ers." It was decided to devote all tl
washed lands on the place to the pa
turing of this herd. The general mnanaga
ment of the farm will be directe
with a view to the support of all ti
animals used in the construction of Lt
building. The draining of soil will al:
be conducted with a view to developi
deficiencies so as to prepare fori
most economical improvement whe
the College is started. The whole obje<
of the meeting was to settle on a plan
running the station and farm. The pla
detailed above .will also include tl
idea of ascertaining the value of certa.

The Public Schools of Newberry County.
During the scholastic year 1889-90,
there were eighty-nine public schools
in operation in Newberry County.
s School district No. 9 had the largest
t number-sixteen, and Nos. 12, 13 and
d 14 the smallest-two each. There were
s 107 teachers in the public schools, and
s of this number thirty-nine were males
n and sixty-eight females. The average
monthly wages paid to males was
$19.64, to females $2 .30. This differ
ence arose from the fact that a great
many of the colored teachers held low
t grade certificates.
g During the year the reports showed
a total enrollment of .5,405 pupils, and
0 of this number 1,9'1 were white and
3,472 colored. There was an average
attendance of 3,238, or about 59 9-10
per cent. of the total enrollment.
The average attendance should have
been larger. Eighty per'cent would
0 have been a good showing. Parents
- should endeavor to have their children
() attend school more regularly, and
s teachers should urge its necessity. We
must remember, however, that the
great majority of the schools are in the
D country, and children attending these
schools often have a long distance to
J walk, and cannot be at school every
0 day, especially when the weather is
But it is useless to go into a lengthy
0 report of the schools of last year. It is
0 sufficient to say that the schools of last
.t year ai-e doing fairly well, when every
e thing is taken into consideration. The
great need of the schools is more money.
There was only enough last year to
run the free schools about three and
one-third mopths. This is not long
enough, as every one must admit. The
schools should run at least six months,
and not until they run this tong or
longer will the common schools ac
complIsh the purpose fur which they
y were established.
e The School Book Question.
Two yeas ago (Sept. 25, 1888,) the
L County Board of Examiners, in ac
d cordance with a resolution passed by
the State Board. met and adopted a
list of text books to be used in the
schools of Newberry County. Before
this, each teacher selecting such books
as suited him best. Of course this made
school books expensive, as our teacher
would often choose books different
from those used by his predecessor.
Since the adoption of books by the
s County Board, there has been a change
and now in nearly all the schools of
e the county the same series of books are
in use. It has taken some work to
1e make the ebange and has given teach
ers trouble, but the results are entirely
These books cannot be changed for
five years from the time they were
e adopted, and perhaps when the time
has expired thesame books will be se
e lcted for five years more.
e Webster's Elementary Speller has
been in use for more than half a cen
tury, but it has served its time and
must go. Two years ago this book was
st in a great many of our schools, but now
a it-is not often that we find it. Swin
ton's books have taken its place. Al
d though the "Elementary" may be dis
e carded now, and doubtless rightly, yet
we must say that it has done more to
advance correct spelling and proper
pronunciation than any other book
ever used li the schools of our county.
We doubt very much whether there
will ever be another school book pub

SACRIFICING THEIR SKIN S.
The Noble Devotion of One Hundred and
Thirty-two Knights of Honor in Chicago.
CHICAGO, January 1.-One of the
most unique surgical operations on
record was performed in this city to
day, and one hundred and thirty-two
Knights Templar gave the world a
notable example of fraternal love and
self sacrifice, made in order that a sick
brother might be restored to health.
These Knights each suffered a loss of
a piece of cuticle which was transferred
to Sir Knight John Dickerson.
A cancer which had attacked Dick
erson's thigh was removed some time
ago, but so deep and wide an incision
had to be made in the flesh that nature
was unequal to the task of healing over
the gaping wound. The experiment
was tried of engrafting the skin of some
of the lower animals, but it failed.
The surgeon in charge announced to
Dickerson's anxious brethren that if
human skin could be obtained it would
in all probability save the patient's
life and ensure his complete recovery.
The question was where to obtain suffi
cient skin to cover 144 square inches of
surface. The matter was broached in
the Commandery and to a man the
Knights offered to submit themselves
to the necessary operation.
