I The first meeting of the teachers

held at Lowndesville, on Saturday,
January the 17th. The Institutes are
conducted by the Teachers Associa

already about forty members of the

the teachers of the county will be en
rolled before the year is out.
Active preparations are on foot for
the greatest school fair ever held,
not only in Abbeville county, but in
South Carolina. The degree of success
that this will meet with depends up
on the completeness of the coopera
tion received from the teachers and
friends of education in this county.
The program for the meeting at

Abbeville School Fair.
The schools of Abbeville are going
to have a school fair in the spring.
The Teachers' * Association is now
working, .toward that end. Every
school in the county is asked to co
operate in making this the greatest
thing for the schools of this county
that has ever been held in the county.
Why can Abbeville not do this? Other
na!ri or if
uuuuiics mc uuiug iv.
Every school may start to planning
to that end. This Fair will last two
days. It will include all class room
contests in reading, spelling, arith
metic, drawing, etc. There will be
all the atheletic events on the track
'.hat was held last year. There will
be exhibits from all the schools;
these exhibits will consist of fancy
work made by the children, cookery,
articles from the manual training
work; exhibits of canning, of pre
serves, of pickles, and all such
Tliis Fair will be for the country
schools; of course the city schools of
the county will be in. But why should
the country schools worry about
that? Are not the individuals in the
country just as good as the individ
uals in the city? Yes, has it not been
proven that the most brilliant men of
all the cities have come from the iso

THE COTTON MARKET
The Spot Situation Will Hare Con
siderable Bearing This week.?Last
Keport Gave the Hulls Consider
able Advantage.?Entire Trade
Wants a Better Line on Spinnable
Supply. 400,000 Bales Since Keport.
New Orleans, Jan. 12.?The cotton
market this week probably will pay a
great deal of attention to the spot
situation and developments in it may
have a strong influence on the course
of prices in the futures department.
The entire trade wants a better line
on the supply of spinnable grades, in
regard to which there is much bullish
gossip going the rounds.
The claims of the bulls in this di
rection are that of the receipts com
ing in only a small precentage is of a
quality to tempt buyers and that the
premiums on the good grades are
hnnriri to widen out. Of the entire
stocks of unsold cotton in this ooun
try, comprising just about 2,000,000
bales at all ports and the 30 interior
points it is said that a surprising per
centage is of very low grade stuff
which can not be spun to advantage.
Under the circumstances the bulls
consider that it is only a question of
a short time before the owner of
good grades will find himself in a
very strong position and the spot de
partment will have a tendency to lead
futures in advancing movements in
The great decrease in ginning
shown by the last report from the
census bureau gave the bulls an in
portant advantage which undoubted
ly will be apparent this week in
forecasts of the amount of cotton gin
ned during the present period.
The last ginning reort showed a lit
tle over 400,000 bales turned out be
tween December and January.
As reports now stand there are few
people who look for more tahn 200,
000 bales before January 15. Some
bulls expect even a smaller amount.
This next ginning report will be look
ed forward to with the greatest in
terest. Trade conditions the world
over will ?be gi\jen much attention.
Bulls believe that the year 1914 will
bring about a decided improvement in
them while the bears look for contin
ue/3 quiet. Either way they are an im
portant factor in cotton.

10. P. HAWTHORN.
IDENTIFIED WITH DDE WEST FOR
nearly Eighty years.
Suw Many Changes in the Town
and Witnessed the Great
Growth ot its Colleges.
' Dr. 0. P. Hawthorn, of Dae West, was in
town last Monday. He came by rail and
stopped with his handsome daughter ilre.
0. A. Ellis, of Hodges.
( Dr. Hawthorn's history dates back to
the earliest days of the City of Colleges,
when that beautiful little town of today
was DeWitt's Corner, and then for awhile
it was Due West Corner. But it was not
long until tho "Corner" was dropped, and
the town was simply Duo |Ve9t, with a
prejudice against railroads. Away back
in the "forties" the peoplo then, as now,
were patriotic and subscalbed to the build
ing of the railroad, provided It didn't
come nearer the town than Donalds.
Away back in the fifties the people then,
as now, only a little more so, were the
strictest of the Psalm-singlng A. R. P.'s.
They preached infant damnation for one
set at least, and communicants had to se
cure "tokens" In advance of going to the
sacred table. The newspaper fought Ahe
Masonic fraternity as b6on companion of
his Satanic Majesty. The Catholic Church
was approaching with a force more dread
ful than an army with banners. The Tel
escope or Miscellany newspaper when not
lighting Catholics and Masons, preached
then, as now, holiness and purity of liv
ing, with an incidental effort at all times
to strengthen and to build up the Seceder
Church; sending the blessed tidings of the
Kedeemer to bless all mankind.
In the "fifties" the. Woman's College
sprang Into existence, holding in its right
hand the great light, Female Education, to
magnify and glorify proud old Erskine
that had stood for years as a beacon light
on the mountain. The prejudice informer
years against railroads could not endure
fKlnoln/v It/vltf r\t fonoatj onH ir*fnlH.

gence in this advanced age. The people,
or their descendants, who were so muQh
against railroads and were so zealous for
the spread of the true religion, now joined
together and on their own aefcount built
a railroad whose tracks run up to the very
shadow of Erskine. The railroad made
Due West anew. It is now a busy mart as
well as an educational centre.
It Is a changed town now, as Dr. Haw
thorn will testify. Tb" peoplo are today
as crazy on the subject of foreign missions
as they wore in olden times against rail
roads. But as aH the people today cannot
be fooled ail the time, any more than a
former generation could shut oft the light
that brings progress, a brighter day is
dawning for<the best colleges and the best
town on earth.
The good old town of DeWitt's Corner,
Due West ;Corner, and later of Due West
is sun progressing, ine community is
rural and the students are far removed
from Tthe temptations that be^et boys at
colleges In bigger towns. That good old
town when Dr. Hawthorne and his
handsome daughter at Hodges lived there,
was eleven miles northeast of Abbeville.
In order to get further from the sin and
iniquity of city life, good old Erskine has
been moved to something like a hundred
miles from Columbia and forty miles from
Greenville. Having moved clear out of
reach of Abbeville and having moved to
such respectful distances from Columbia
and Gi-eenville, students in the classic city
are safe in the lines of purity and holiness
But a great religious error is entering
the A. R. P. pulpit. Some of their preach
ers have been itinerating. In their jour
nc-yings they have departed from the faith
of their fathers, and no longer, sing
Psalms. In Dr. Hawthorn's youth, nei
ther ho nor his brothers ever dreamed
that the Seceder church would go back on
the Psaita-singing worsnip. Strange as it
may seem, sorno of the A. B. P. preachers
have quit singing Psalms. They now sing
Psolms, and in doing so no doubt feel as if
they were walking in the paths which their
Dr. Hawthorn, In his love for the church
and in his loyalty to Due "West never
thought his people would quit singing
