, The Cotton crop of Newberr
llCounty for 1882,, is estimated a
3* 80,000 bales, with a fair yield to th
*ep ; and yet our farmers say tha
: sia,profit-in cotton-at nb

one they pay too much for their whistle
that the cost of production is to
Ian great. C4ton is, and is desti ed t

ibis. are likely to be the future prices
onf, for while the price fluctuates, n
add reasonable person thinks that it wil

t only remedy left to the farmers, ii
view of these circumstances, is to dE
the crease the cost of production-t
in make the greatest possible yield a
la the least possible expense. We bE
Did lieve that this can be done, and w
,e feel that it will be done. The onl;

:ex Much can be gained by- sowin
ro more small grain. The favorabl
l effects of the splendid grain crop

a throughout the State; and whil
l. we cannot -as a rule, compete wit

Sthast by means of improveed ma
e linery, one man can do the work
formerly done by three or four men,
anid they are fast turning their backs
o oni old methods of reaping, thresh
ilug, ginning, and preparing the soil.
'lThe number of agricultural ma
rchlines bought in our County within
the last year, shows the favorable
Sli ght in which this matter in-viewed ;
I anrd it is hoped that our farmers
awil 1resort to the use of labor-saving
rmachinery wherever the nature of
I th e land will permit it.
SBut the weightiest- consideration
that demandake attention of the cot
on producer, is the importance of
raising his own farm supplies, and
of being less'- dependent upon
foreign markets. In simpler words,
we should learn to "live at home."
In former years, the prices of cot
ton and bacon stood near together;
and a pound of cotton was practi
cally a legal tender for a pound of
bacon. Now the price of bacon is
double that of cotton, while other
farm supplies are proportionately
dear; aud the tendency of the cotton
price is downward. As our people
cannot wisely resolve to eat no ba
con, they must resolve to raise their
own "hog and hominy."' This they
are not doing. in our State, last
year, there was a decrease in the
number of sheep and cattle
and a decrease of 11 per
in the number of stock
Farmers cannot afford to let
of cotton,, and the number
and cattle, go down together.
the man who pays high prices for
his labor and provisions, while he
is forced to accept low prices for
his produce, cannot expect to win,1
and hardly deserves to win, in the1
fight for paying profits.
In another matter many of our
producers are not altogether mindful
of their best interests. During
1882, 10 per cent. less commercial
fertilizers were bought in the State,
than in 1881; and 25 per cent, of
the crops of 188-2, were fertilized
with home-made. compost. This
is a favorable showing, but we have
not gone far enough. Cotton seed,
pea vines, stable and barnyard ma
nure, and home-made composts are C
the cheapest and best fertilizers in C
the world; and they are..within the E
reach of all. The farmer who a
finds fault with the price of cotton,
should make his own fertilizers and
improve his methods of cultivation, t
so as todecreaseteacreage while
the yield remains unchanged. The
man who. by proper ultivatin,..r
To say that the citizens of New
berry have not done their duty, is
not enough; or rather it is-too
much, for it is incorrect. They
erected the college here; they have
more than $15,000 invested in the
college building; and they have
not withheld their patronage, al
though in patronizing the college
they cut themselves off from any
benefit that may be- derived from
the public school fund. They have
done well; others, worse. These
colleges are hardy plants; they are
tenacious of life and it is almost im
possible" to kill them; but the
amount of their vital energy and
the degree of their prosperity must
depend -upon the church, and the
denominations may as well begin
to work in the light of this truth.
The Anderson Intelligencer says
-The railroad from here to Wal
halla does not make much better
time than can be made by horses;
in fact, at times they run so slow
that passengers can. get out and
walk for a hundred yards at a time, -
keeping up with the train all the
way. It has actually been done.
Things might be worse, brother
Intelligencer. It is said tiat a con- e
ductor on the Laurens road, several
years ago, had compassion on a
cripple who was walking by the as
sistance of crutches, and asked
him to ride; but the cripple, kindly I
thanking him, said that he preferred
to walk as he was in a hurry !

Our Public Sehools-Teaee$s'
We feel that our public sch' 1
system. is 'defective; least, in ts
workings; and we feel tev; 'he
success of the system must largily
depend upon the public schopl
teachers. The State, in order to
secure fitness in the school-rooan,
subjects the applicant to an exani
nation which is intended to test his
a qualifications as a teacher. ot
these examinations merely shlow
t that the successful applicant had a
ve memory; whathey, fai{ to
a show, is whether the"sccessfnl: p
plicaats in any sense, qualili to
> teach school. The first grad1ex
2 amination embraces some tqrty
r miscellaneous questions on hist4ry,
3 geography, arithmetic, granamar 4nd
spelling. The gentleman who,pe
> pared the list asked question alter
I question without seeming to kgow
a that he was not examining school
i boys, until he reached "arithmetic";
at that point, he rose to theim
> portance of the occasion and said :
t "Explain the op&ation of diviing
one fraction by another; as 'ou
a would to a pupil." Now, while we
y admit that this is the most intel
ligent question in the list, we do
y most positively deny that a bian
e knows every thing that is worth
s knowing about school teacling,
t merely because he can "explain the
e operation of dividing one fraction
a by another as he would to a pupil."
f Excepting the question just giyen,
e the examination contains not.one
h question relating to methods' of
r teaching; not one relating to sc ool
s government and school discipine;
a not one that appeals to any other
mental faculty than memory;, not
f one, in any way, relating to the busi
ness of teaching; and not one that
a would lead a person to suppose that
it was intended for teachers !
e Our teachers may be capable; and
we --do not mean to deny that hey
in the mouth of a duck . ese
examinations fail to p$ve that theya
a -e not in ouir schools, as teach4rs.
We know that it is useliss to
criticise what there is no hope of.
reforming; but it is not possible to
to have good sdhools, unless we have
good teachers,-and on this line, we
propose to make the fight for bet
ter schools.
Denaominational 4olIlegW.
"What must we do to be sa%d?"
is a question that has pe.rsi.ste&itly
forced itself upon our Denordiina
tional Colleges; and it s not;fnd I
an answer in the re-o 'ngothe
State UJnivei-sity and Citade4 ca-'
demy. The' question has addre(sed
itself to the wisdom of our phur(es; y
it now confrontl tf\e trusteesend I
directors of our* colleges, anj it
does not grow Ie.ss troublesome ps it
grows older.
No man in his right senses, yrill
deny the importance of %g >rk
done by these colleges, or 4ke
himself blind to the truth that e
satisfy a femnand which canni be
supplied by State institu4s.
The college-bred men of this n
eration wore with comparatily
few exceptions, trained in dent ni
national schools. During the troub
lous years in which we had no
State institutions, because we laad
no State government, our Dendni
national Colleges worked on, hored
an, and proved that the Church ''1l
iave inistitutions of learning, wit
aver course the government4y
Sfit to pursue. The instructors
these institutions are men wh$~se
moral worth adorna their learning
-men who have devoted tfleir
ives and talents to the trainin4of
;he young because they feel that
he young should be trained; and
hey deserve confidence and ae
~ess. But, to the question.
Primarily, a Denominational Cci
ege must look for support, to t
~hurch wvhose name it bears. Th~,
nstitutions have divided the sch$ol
>ublic, and each will demande
dd of its own sympathizers.
The history of one is the history
>f any other-so take Newb'
jollege as a representative Den
national College. It has dong a
'dod work, and it now offers splei
id advantages; but its effHcieueyds
rippled by a want of adequate s.
ort. It may receive a localp: -
ge of aleneral character, but
it it must look ,to the ehr
;s friends may say, and truly sg
mat it is not sectarian in the
pular sense; but the people
pon it as sectarian, speakof
starian, and treat it asat
Sthere that matter rens.
