DR. GRIER'S OPINION.
On the 10th of May the Nows
1;2(7 Cvioif,r sent a circular letter to
a number of prominent citizens of
Abbeville County for the purpose
t* ascertainig whAher the Press
e!II BAwr,,? was correct in saying
that a majority of the people of that
counNt are opposed to common
school education at the public ex
pense. Seventeen men answered
the letter. Of that number, three
are opposed to common school
education at the public expense;
four are in favor of the repeal of
t lie two mill school tax; seven are
opposed to national aid to educa
tion; and seven are opposed to tle
Dr. W. M. Grier. President cf
Erskine College. says: "As mat
ters are with us, I favor common
schlo, education at public expense.
I would regard the repeal of the
two mili s,- hool tax as a long step
hackwards. The higliest consile
rtations of* public interest and of
Christian duty would condemn such
I am in favor of National aid to ed
ucation if the distribution of the fund
is left wholly in the hands of the
State authorities and can therefore
be made without a complication of
State and Federal relations."
The Blair bill provides that the
MOney, .1ppropriated shall be di.-,
tributed by the State authorities,
and ;n our opinion the South would
be foolish not to accept it.
Dr. Grier is right. Ilis opinion
is worth something, and we are
glad lie has spoken.
Th~e national powwow of the
great Republican party which has
bcen savingr this country for twenty
years, will be held in Chicago next
Tuesday, for the purpose of
making a President. Vast and ex
pensive preparations have been
male for the accommodation of' the
elect, and Chiicago will present anl
animated scene on the :3rd. It ap.
pears now that one place on the
ticket wil lbe elven to Robt. Lin

It is h eoming a serious question

the subject o1 pub8lic education has
been made so) prominent and has
been rung in theC ears of the peop)le
so continually' that they have be

this is inring the cause of public
educatnin. If' it h e true that the
friends of' the public schools are' in
danger of breaking them down by

Many of the -pupils are scattered
ov-er the county. some gzone to (is

lv number too have been called from
time into eternity. IThe neighibor-~
hood has undergone great change
also. very few of the citizens
that owned land in that vicinityvthirty
years ago are there now. The old ones
have either moved away or died
out, and new ones have taken their
p llaces. There are a few of the old

"ny the Ol One."
The same difficulty presents it
self this week as on the last, there is
"nothing new under the Siu." no
startling event has occurred to af
ford a subject for writing, but as
we have entered the race we will
not back out; and will stand to the
rack fodder or no fodder. A word
or two as to the Masons we have
just thought will help to fill up this
first paragraph. Two weeks ago. a
poor widowed woman worked her
way to Newberry. She caine from
the Land of Flowers. but there was
nothing flowery about her. for she
looked what she was, poor an( nee
dy. She inquired for some good meth
odist lady, found one, was taken in,
and given a "bite and a sup." This
was Saturday; she rested until
Alonday, eating the Methodist lady's
food. and lodging at the Newberrv
Hotel. 31onday she called on a
few Masons, and gave evidence that
she was the widow of a Master Ma
son. At once this noble band went
to work an( gave her a purse of
monev suflicient to take her home.
We like chai ity."it covereth a multi
tude (if sins," and who knows but
that some of these masons have
sinned. We will not say that they
have, but as the Bible says "all
men have sinned." it is but natural
to suppose that they have. Masons
are proverbial for charitable acts
to those who have claims u,on them.
11ave you ever thought how good
it is to be courteous. It is like the
-oil which ran (own Aaron's beard.
It is a good thing. We recollect
reading an anecdote of two far
miers, who lived near neighbors.
We will call them Smith and Jones.
Well Smith's family, from the hired
girl up. were remarkable for their
pleasant manners; their kinl cour
tesy to eaeh other was the talk of the
country; every one had something
to say about Smith and his family.
-Jones' folks on the other hand were
totally unlike them. Each seemed
to have been raised on apple vine
gar. Nothing pleasant ever occur
red at Jones'. It was all acErbity,
continual bickering, harsh. unkind
words, and his business ever went
wrong. Jones could not understand
this, could not see where the great
dilf.rence existed. One day lie
asked his neighbor Smith to tell
him what the secret was, if any.
The other replied that it was ac
complished by the use of greas2.
i-G rease," neighbor Jones. said lie,
-is what does it." "Please explain,"
,Jones. --Well" said Smith. "I
grease my fImily every morning. by
kind words, cheerful smiles. and
praise, instead of fault finding. This
is the secret. -Every one begins the
day's work cheerfully, and the work
is dlone with willing a!ae-rity. This
is it, the wife, the children. the ser
vanits are all the better for kinid

see how heautifully it will work.
Jones did try it. and it is needless
to say, that from that day a change
for the better camne over the spirit
of his dream. kiind words are "like
applles of gioldl in pictures of silver.'
Why is it that kite living. muar
bles. tops and other yo)uhul pas
times have each their p)articullar
season? We have thought too, that
other things seem to be popu'ar at
certain seasons. At one time the
paesare rite with accounts of
fearf ul disasters at sea. one hiorrible
account is followed by another, and
how freqjuent is this occurrence; at
another time fires engross the mind:
perhaps there is a change, and then
the ind is staggered by the fre
quent murders which are commit
ted. At another time the dark un~
mentionable crime, of which we
have hand such large experience,
runs its day and time. A ny one of
these is quiickly followed by another
and another of' like chiaracter. till
thme heart revolts and sickens at the
recital. Pcrhaps the newspapers
may be to blamne, for let one ac
counut be' publishied. and it is taken
up, and set in motion, and every
)1pape iin the land strives to out do
the other in its accounts of similar
ocurrenices, and( the one seed
springs iup into foul flowering.
