Iiifitor Otungcbunj Times:.
During the past week the Insti
tute has been steadily at work, and
has now completed the third week of
its session. Though so near the close
of the session, the number is daily
augmented by new arrivals, so that
at present there are in attendance
.1 hi teachers representing all parts of
Our beloved Principal and his as
sistants have been earnestly at work,
endeavoring to implant in the minds
of the teachers (be best, methods of|
teaching, and.to arouse in their hearts
such an enthusiasm for their pro
fession as will bear abundant fruit in
better methods a nil better teachers
all over our .State do ring the ensue
i hg year.
Last Friday evening was the occa
sion of a most agreeable lawn party
given to the teachers in 'Tu; extensive
grounds of the Baptist Church. It
was largely attended both by teach
ers and Citizens, there being several
hundred persons on the grounds, and
has conduced much to bringing the
two together, and extending the
social features of the Institute.
During the past week the Institute
waT honored by a visit from one. who.
iii \ he words of ohr worthy Principal
'is the ablest of pliilosoph'eal think
ers on education in the world." Dr.
Harris of St. Louis. During his stay
he delivered to the Institute during
its daily sessions, two lectures on
"Moral and Intellectual Education,"
ami a public lecture in the Opera
House. J hough by no means an
o 'ator, so eh ar and forcible are bis
a-guments, and so valuable his
t ioughts, the result of years of
.bought ami experience, that he can
u >t fail to interest and benefit his
audiences, as was evinced on the oc
The Institute was also addressed
during the week by Dr. Purmnti of
the University, "that Nestor in Kdh
Cation in South Carolina" who gave
to the teachers much valuable infor
mation derived iVoin his experience
both as a pupil and as a teacher.
Themost interesting feature of the
Institute at present is the course "I
lectures on the Knglish Language by
Dr. .Joyncs. So interesting and in
structive are his lectures that each
day the room is crowded by teachei>
and visitors, no one being willing to
lose his valuable, instruction. To
one umicquanlcd with the Language,
his manner of dealing iyith inflec
tions, case-endings, plural bums,
comparatives and superlatives would
seem rash aud inconsistent with the
rules of Grammar; but to one who
has kept pace with the advances in
that direction, it seems not only reit
sotiable but the truly correct way.
The interest manifested by the
teachers and their appreciation of the
Utforts made for their improvement
may lie seen in the amount of extra
work undertaken. Jn addition to
the regular morning session, large
afternoon classes have been formed
in calisthenics by .Mrs. Judsou,
Drawing, by Prof. Kieniaiiu, and
writing under Prof. Perry,?the
teachers being willing to sacrillee
their hours of recreation in order to
gain instruction which they may im
part to the children under their
We are now on the threshold of th
last week of the session, which it i
hoped will prove the most intorestin
aud instructive, ?bat the enthusiasm
may increase toward tue close of tin
course, and that each and every one
in attendance may return to his work

It has been quaintly said thai noth
ing succeeds like success, as if if were
not impossible to succeed wit bout it.
Shakspearesays "there is a tide in
the affairs of men, which, taken at
the Hood, leads on to fortune." There
is a time for all things, and an op
portunity in all men's lives which, il
improved, moulds ami fashions our
future destiny, but if lost, it is lost
forever, and never comes again. How
few people understand or appreciate
the critical moment, the crisis, the
turning point in life, when a word, a
thought, an act, will change, the cur
rent and direction of business life,
and makes or breaks wit bout an ef
fort. From that point it is straight
sailing, either to success or failure.

Will you ill low me a small space
in your valuable paper lorIbe follow:
Crops in tins Keel ion are not as
good as they were last year. Our
farmers seem to lie in low spirits, but
we are blest, now with showers, and
all vegetable matter begins to smib'
and why not us? Is it because we
are afraid that we cannot meet our
indebtedness this Fall,or, is it on
account of so much cotton planted,
and such small fields of corn? I
tiliiil< the latter is the cause; for how
can a man expect to have bread and
meat, unless be raises it? Can he ex
pect to pros pel by raising cotton at
10 cents a pound, when bacon is
worth as much per pound as cotton,
and corn from one dollar to oho and a
quarter per bushel ? This sec' ion has
bought more corn and hay this year
than it did the year after Sherman's
raid, and every year will gradually
grow .worse by this plan of planting
cotton. Count up the cost ami see if
corn, wheat, oats and rice do not cost
less than cotton.
We had a very interesting series
of meetings in our neighborhood, one

Friend McSwceney of tlie Hamp

er of the visit of the Committee to
Orangaburg list veek:
"On Friday morning we visited
Mr. George Cornel son's store and
warehouse, where we were taken in
charge by Mr. Brunsou (who iu the
absence of Mr. Cornclson is superin
tending the business) and sliown
through the entire establishment.
The building constituting the store is
of brick,; three stories high, and 50
by 100 feet?Mr. Cornclson being a
merchant, doing a business of over
$200,000 per annum, as well as a
manufacturer. We found here every
thing that a farmer requires from his
merchant, including furniture.
After a rest and refreshment, w?
were taken to the factory and there
turned over to Superintendent Piercd
a Rhode Island man, who thoroughly
understands cotton milling in all its
details, fronethe engine room to the
press, where the'yurns are put into
compact bales for shipment to New
York, Boston and Philadelphia.
To say that we were pleased don't
do half justice to our feelings, and we
came away fully convinced that the
"world do move'' notwithstanding we
had left home a little muddled as to
whether it was the sun or the world
that did the moving at the Court

burg in 1871, ten years since, and
found what we considered as slow A.

of it, with only a few stores, no hotel,

A greater change we never witness
ed. The place now does more busi
ness than Columbia our State capital
with eighteen or twenty new build
ings going up, most of them brick
stores, two and three stories in height
and all due to a few enterprising men
of the town and county, who with Mr.
