The agJi-wtics *re ? ?vv eUs-ifying

Dr. Cants, editor or :h*; M?nist, delivered
a lecture not Jong at the
Philosophical c ab of the University
of Chicsg >, and defined his vipws upon
theism. Dr. Ctra* attack* a<i?io*t:ci*ju
as follows:
"Agno3tic'^m as a bankrnpicy of
thought, is not only the weakest, b:it
also the most injurious, philosophy.
It is the philosophy of indolence,
which, otj account of its own insolvency,
declares that the most vital
question of man'* !ife, the qnestion of
?Kq ennl tha cnnl'a tr> { ho
body, the immortality of the soul, the
existence of God, the creation, and the
ultimate purpose of beinir, are bevond
, the reach of reason."
Such agnosticism as thn, Dr. rarus
asserts is illiberal and unscientifia:td
as dogmatic as the dogmas ot the
ordinary orthordox Puritan He,
therefore, defines agnosticism as of
different kinds? "the agnosticism of
moaesiy, wmcn is a Biispeusjv" ui
judgment so long as there are not
adequate grounds to be bad for forming
an opinion," aod (he agnosticism
represented by Herbert Spencer.
"His" (Spencer's), says Dr. Car as,
"is not a mere suspense of judgment,
4 bfat a most emphatic declaration that
the mystery of life is utterly incomprehensible,
that the substance of the
soul (whatever that may mean) can
not be known, that energy is inscrutable,"
etc. The agnosticism of Spencsi is
thft bind Dr. Cams refects.
Dr. Cams, a scientific agnostic, is
reaching out for a God knowledge.
In iha lectare he defines bis conception
of Deity as follows:
"God i?, further, not an indifferent
being to as. He has a personal and
private relation to all His creatures,
being nearer to every one ot them
than the beating of.their hearts and
the neural vibration of their brains.
He is in th?m, and vet different to
them, and infinitelv high above them.
He is their life, their Lome, whence
they stay, and the goal whither they
travel. God is not like as, bat we
like Him. He is the light of oar life.
He' is the mariner's compass which
guides us, and the anchor of hope on
which we re'.y. Ualess we fee! his
presence, we shall find no place iu the
restlessness of this world. Unless we
sanctify oar lives by the purport
which His existencs imparts to all
life, we^can find no comfort iu our
afflictions. Unless we recognize that
oar sou! is an actualization of His
eternal thoughts, we shall not learu to
fight the right way in the straggle for
existence. Unless we listen to the
stxil, small voice that teaches us our
duties, we shall not obtain that blissful
assurance which tli) childship of
God alone can afford." ?
This utterancj is .especially interestin*,
as the Literary Digest suggests,
because the author, at one time an
athei9t, ha1? advanced to his present

scientific agnosticism. After stating
that he his investigated "the question
?'? of what God mast be, if we understand
by God that something which
molds the world and shapes the fate of
man," he says in farther explanation
of the language already quoted, <kI
have, however, come to th* conclusion,
and am more and more convinced,
that the superpersoaalGou, the God of
science, ths eternal norm of truth and
righteousness, is God indeed; He aloue
is God. lie is what tbe pagans (including
the pagan Christians) have
bee it groping after^for ages."
Here is a man searching the science
of biology for God, Whom many
withoat anv knowledge of the
science have found through the faith of
s little child. Is it hoping for too
mach that both may find thi same
God knowledge through different researches?
An officer in the Philippines writes
to tbe Associated Press that "one hundred
thousand soldiers should be there
ready for business by the beginning of
the dry season in November." ,4A
continuous warfare caniot be carried
on in this enervating climate by the
same troops," says the offi#er, and this
will 6trike unst people a? hard common
sense. "Men from a northern
climate retain tneir native vigor ior
six or eight months after their arrival
here and then begin to saceumb to the
various ailments of tropical weather.
This is exemplified in the case of volunteers
and regulars who have been in
the Philippines since last summer.
The most of them are saturated with
malaria, many have rheumatism and
all are greatly debilitated."

system of packing cotton f jv tho mar

server will notice the great ioss b\

Considerable literature pro and coi
has been sent broadcast ihroughou

we are not kindly disposed toward:

The Democrat and Courier, Natchcz
Miss , has offered the following plat
to secure good prices for the presen
crop of cotton:
The time will soon arrive for thi
marketing of the next coiton crop anc

All of which is doubtless quite
sound, but it is a waste of time to 1.5
to indues farmers to move together it

? Announcement has already been
made by tbe State Superintendent of
! Education that during the summer
2 months a teachers' normal school would
5 be conducted in each county of the
j State. As has been announced, the
f sessions will continue for tour weeks,
; during which time much good work
may be done if the teachers all attend
? and apply themselves zealously. The
2 school will open in Mt. Zion College
j building in Winnsboro Thursday,
y Augu't 17th inst., at 9 o'clock a. m.
j For the information of teachers, the
following ponits aregiTen:
First. This will be strictly a summer
schooi, not a course of lectures.
Second. Onlv those who are teachers,
j or tiiose who intend to teach will be
t enroled.
Third. No visitors allowed to enter
3 either of the class-rooms without per1
mission from conductor.
Fourth. Each teacher is required to
study each branch and 9tand a written
examination on each at the end of four
Fifth. The noars wili be from 9 to
12 or 10 to 1, as may suit the convenience
of leacher and pcpii.
Sixth. No ?teacher will be admitted
after the school has been in session 7
Seventh. It is highly desirable that
a!! teachers be present the firs; day,
at the beginning of the first day's exercises.
Eigtb. Eich teacher is requested to
bring the text books moat generally
used in arithmetic, English, and geosrraohv.
, All teachers are urged to attend
5 promptly and constantly. Board has
r been procured for $2.25 per week, or
1 $9 per rnonth. Dr. H. S. Hartzog, of
. Clemson College, has ja3t assured us
f an able agricultural lecturer from that
) institution, Frof. Furman, for our
summer school. Hi3 lecture-: will be
