THE 'ITOTAL STATE.
The New York Press, Republican, in
an editorial on the recent elections and
speculating as to the probable results
ia 1892, says that New York will be the
pivotal State, and that which ever
pirty carries it in the general election
In 1892. will carry the victory. Or
rather, from its stand point, New York
will be indispensable to the Democrats
while it will be possible for the Repub
licans to win without it.
By the new apportionment, if the
States which voted in the last election
vote for the same party in the next
election, the electoral vote will be as

On the saue basis the Republicans

But if the Democrats carry Indiana,

If the Democrats also carry Massachu

comrades joined in the recent ceremo

there still lurks in the hearts of a few
the desire, by the display of that flag,

A comrade wearing the badge or

another respect-at the recent examina

certifcates, one is of Newberry and one
of this comnmunity. While speaking
of teachers I might add that the one of
this community that received a first1
grade certificate, Mr. A. E. P. Beden
baugh. was recently unanimously
chosen as teacher of the Monticello
school, several miles east of St. Luke's
church, for the next scholastic year,
without him having made an applica

matter whatever until after nis election.
Notwithstanding the complimentary4
manner in which he was chosen, he de
clined, as wished to attend college. 1

Ifticial Figures I, :1ohe Incouse of the
State-Treasurer Bates Gives the
Amount of Royalty Paid to his
Office for the Past Year.
[Special to News and Courier.]
CoUMnMA, Nov. 7.-Inasmuch as
everal incorrect statements are going
he rounds of the press reportorially
ditorially, inferentially and otberwise,
s to the phosphate royalty for the last
iscal year, it is perhaps:an opportune
ine that a correct statement be furn
In the report of Phosphate Inspector

n full in The News and Courier, he
ut the royalty down at $179,166 36.
'hat is correct, but in commenting on
t the newspapers which have spoken
iave confounded the fiscal year with
he ordinary fiscal year, beginning
ovember 1. The report of Mr Jones
akes no account, therefore, of about
hree months in which royalty has been
)aid into the State treasury.
State Treasurer Bates alone knows
vhat has been paid into the treasury.
:e was asked this morning for the
Luount of phosphate royalty paid in
or the just passed fiscal year. He not
ly furnished the total, but the item

This showing makes the actual cash

eported by the phosphate inspector.
3esides this, there are amounts still
lue on the past fiscal year which will
nake about$600additional. The names
)f the companies are on the State Trea
iurer's list, but as a matter of courtesy
hey are not published.
The following letter is from a bright
yed boy of eight years, whom it was
ny happy privilege to teach about five
nonths, and whi.-h "little man" was
ny body guard to and from school:

little man.' FERD. ANDREWS."

The Session Before Up.
The public schools of our county are
soon to open again. Teachers have had
long vacation. Some of them have
ad six months rest, and these surely
ught to be ready, willing and even
Lxios to begin-their work once more.
In beginning this session each teacher
ught to feel, and ought to be better
repared than when she began a year

mprovement, then not only she, but

hose committed to theiricare. If there
ye nothing higher in the teachers'
nind than the pay she is to get, if she
s to feel no real, deep interest in the
rogress of the chileren, then she must
nd in a complete failure.
Our teachers have agreat work before
hem. They are to be the trainers of
he future citizens of our country, and
2ow careful and how much in earnest
hen ought they to be. There is a great
~esponsibility resting upon teaabers.
And although their reward may not be
so great in dollars and cents, yet they
wvill have their reward-the praises and
onors of a grateful people.
The teachers of Newberry County
nay well be proud of the reputation for
ernestnsss a'nd devotion to duty that
hey have in other parts of the State.
E'he Superintendent of Education has
ipoken'well of them, praise wvhich we
2ope they have justly merited.
