About a week aeo two men and two women registered at tbe Glenn Ethel as balling from Elberton, Georgia. Tbey were In the busl oes8 of enlarging pictures, and were doing a good amount of work. Ou Saturday night a warrant was served on the men and.one ot the women, charging them with abduction. One of tbe men pro' po ed to marry tbe giri, but we are Informed bat ministers of tbe crospel refused to per form tbe ceremony. Tbe two men and tbe woman charged with abduction were lodged in Jail. Tbe young woman was carried home by her brother. After his arrival in Elberton be telegraphed back to release tbe prisoners, and tbey are now free. We bave been a?ked to withhold tbe namei rxt iho noriici to thin offalr and bo we merelv mention the Incident without giving names The one thing that adds Interest to the whole -iffalr Is the probable absence of any wrong doing, and their connection, or relation, with some most excellent people, who are well Known. As to the prorlety of refusing marriage tc anybody. It Is believed that reoognized authority has declared that marriage Is hOQ' orab'e In all men. As far as we know there whb no special reason to urge marriage In this Instance, bul we do believe that In other Instances the ceremony should be performed, no mattei what the facts may be. From our standpoint h grave responsibility Is assumed when mar rlage Is denied to anybody. It may bo, In <ome Instances, the only door of hope to her who may suffer unwppafcable torture, because ?he is so deprived of the right to take the vows of holy wedlock. It seeo.s to us that all the license laws on ?ny Statutes are against the woman, and ll seems hard that In South Carolina she may ie denied the right of marriage ir she is pooi or friendless. The rich and powerful are lever deuled this right. EDUCATION AT'DUE WEST. Mr. Irwin B. Linton Talks of luMtilnlion* I/ot'h(c?l There. Washington Post. Mr. Irwin B.

In deed, tbe president of tbe female college, Id bis address to tbe graduating clans, seemed but to be giving voice to tbe work of bis Institution when be said: 'The home Is tbe bear) of tbe world. From It radiates the light, tbe Joy, tbe hope ot tbe world. And what makes home? Wile and mother. Those sweet words embody nine-tenths of the happiness of the world. Woman rules not by reason ol her sex. In non-Cbristian lands she In a slave. It Is Christian culture (bat makes woman a queen. The crown of woman Is character. There is no finer product beneath the sun than aoultured Christian woman.' " iliiNbiiiK lfydrnntN, Newberry Herald and News.

The Law Department of the South Carolina College. In addition to the regular lectures by , the professors of law of the South Car- , olina College, the trustees and faculty are pleased to be able to announce for the coming session a very attractive J, series of lectures to be contributed by some of the leading members of the k Bench and Bar of South Carolina. Among those who have consented to deliver one or more lectures to the law ; classes of the College are: Hon. Charles H. Simonton, U. S. Circuit Judge; Hon. . William H. Brawley, U. S. District > Judge; Hon. Y. J. Pope, Chief Justice 1 of South Carolina; Hon. C. A. Woods, 1 Associate Justice; Hon. Eugenei B. Gary, Associate Justice; Hon. Edward ' McCrady, Hon. J. C. Sheppard, Hon. i G. Duncan Bellinger, Hon. S. J. Simpson, Hon. J. P. Carey, and Hon. Andrew Crawford. ! The trustees and faculty feel that in erw'ii vine' thp assistance of these diS [ tinguished judges and lawyers they have accomplished something that will ' prove of the greatest benefit-to those [ taking the law course in the South Carolina College. The number of those eurolled in the law department during ' , the last two years has been the largest ' in the history of the college, and the hope is entertained that the prospect ' of these additional lectures may still [ further increase the growing number 1 of law students. > The great value of the training af> forded by schools of law has been too thoroughly demonstrated to render ! necessary any arguments in their sup- | ' port. The day of preparation for the < bar by solitary study in a lawyer's 1 office has practically passed. Everyone ( familiar with the working of a law J school must have been impressed with the increased interest and zeal that re- | suit from the mere association of young i men who have come together for the common purpose of studying law. The 1 daily discussions of questions of law, j not only with the professors, but also | Willi cavil uiuci, c ati cmuuoiuoui I for the law which possibly, in some in- 1 stances, could never have been acquired otherwise. i The advantage of attending a profes sionai school In the State in which a . 1 man is to practice his profession Is in . no case more obvious than in that of a lawyer. Besides the familiarity gained 1 with the decisions and statute law of , the State, the friendships that he forms at such a school <add yery materially to < his future usefulness as a citlz%p. The . career of lawyers as a class is more apt to be of a public nature* than that of ' those engaged in any other profession or business. Not only are all of the | judges of the State drawn from the bar, i but the occupants of the legislative and \ executive offices are also drawn very i largely from the same source. As so i many of the members of the legal profession are naturally destined to public | careers, it is of no little Importance that the young men who have decided < r to become lawyers should come into ' i close touch with other young men of their own State who have chosen the , same life-work. The most lasting friendships are not 1 [ infrequently formed during the part of a rrwn's llfp thnt is iisimllv rtevnfpil tr? 1 i preparation for the bar; and It Ls un- J i fortunate if this period should be spent , ' in a State other than that in which he i is to live. Several years spent at a profession school in another State some- ' . times find the student so completely out ' i of touch with the young men of his J own State that when he returns to | practice his profession he finds himself i laboring under a serious disadvantage, which In some' instances Is never over- 1 coine. A law school, however, should be ' patronized not alone by those intending \ to practice law. There is hardly a calling in life for which one would not be i better prepared by having taken a course in law. Almost everyone who j \ has made an earnest study of the law will agree with Burke that it is a < "science which does more to quicken and invigorate the understanding than all other kinds of human learning put 1 together." The hope is indulged, there- ! fore, that the attendance upon the law school of the South Carolina College may include some who have not determined to make law their profession. Columbia as the capital of the State presents many advantages for the law j student. #The sessions of ti?e Supreme Court of the State, of the State Circuit Courts, and of the Federal Court*, give him frequent opportunity to hear arguments by the leading lawyers of the State, and to witness the practical ad- J ministration of the principles of the law. In prosecuting his studies he wiU ttlDU 1ULLU Lllill IICL V lit jg <jMXTXH IU (TIC 1UW IVbrary of the Supreme Coert, aa well aa to the College library- wlU be of th? greatest value to him. .MaiIn Clone.
