England youth has some ndvantago
in tho way of both knowlodgo and
training. For this reason many
young mon from tho South go to
Now England to tako courses of
study in tho schools and courses of
training iti tho shops. Tho opportu
nity to acquire this knowlodgo and
training at homo cannot hut ho of
advantage to tho poople of tho South,
to tho manufacturing interests and
to tho Stato. Tho oxecution of tho
work for constructing a building for
this department and of equipping it
is in tho hands of tho executive com
mittee of thc Board of Trustees, of
winch Mr. 1). K. Norris is ohairman.
By authority of tho oxocutivo com
mittee, approved by tho board, tho
preparation of tho plans for tho on
tirc work was put in thc hands of
Mr. I). A. Tompkins.
It is expected that many of tho
machine manufacturers will present
samples of their machines to tho
school, and that when it is finished
thc value of tho property will bo
more than double tho expenditure in

Wc bclicvo with Col. A. K. Mc
Clure,of tlie l'hiladelphiaTimes, that
South Carolina is tho richest Stato
in thc Union in its possibilities. It
is not only tho richest in posibilitios,
hut it is also tho richest in achieve
ment. Its progress in cotton manu
factures is without parallel in tho
South. Its record in agricultural
development is phenomenal. And
yet tho extent and variety of its re
sources have hardly been touched.
We have succeeded in spite of our
selves, our lack of training, our ina
bility to make tho best uses of un
equalled natural advantages. We
have been preaching for years thc
importance of advanced agricultural
methods on thc farm and thc neces
sity of technical training in manufac
tures. Wc must havo both if wo
would hold our lead in theno two
great departments of industrial activ
ity. Clemson Col logo is supplying
thc State with educated farmers, and

The plans for tho school have
been entrusted to Mr. I). A.
Tompkins, of Charlotte, N. C., who
is weil li tied by training and expe
rience for tho wuilc. Wo publish ail
illustration of the Training School,
with an interesting and valuablo ac
count of tho lines upon which tho
School will bo conducted, and tho
work which it ia expected to accom
plish. In a no.-.'onal letter to tho
editor of Tho Nows and Courier, Mr.
Tompkins says :
"In my opinion it is ono of tho
most important educational advance
ments that can ho made in tho pres
ent growing condition of cotton
manufacture. I feel that wc all
ought to leave nothing undono to
qualify tho youth of our own section
for every position occupied in a cot
ton mill. There should bo no call
for any cotton mills to send to Now
lOiigland or to Old England, or any
where (ilse for young men qualified
to handle cotton mill machines, or to
keep tho operations of cotton manu
facture straight, in a mill. I go oven
further than this, and would Uko to
see Buch a system of textilo instruc
tion and training built up in tho
Southern States as would BO qualify
tho youth ol this section to ioad in
manufactures to a dogreo that they
would ho sought by tho cotton man
ufacturers of other sections on ac
count of their superior knowledge
and skill. It roally carno to pans in
Europo that tho Gormans, by a ays
tom of toxtilo schools, so qualifiod
many young mon In Germany, that
they were sought for in England for
their knowledge of ohomistry in dye
stuffs and oomplioated working of
many things iu oonncotion with
which England had mado no apooial
provision for the oduontion of hor
own youth. Tho tondonoy of Eng
lish manufaoturors to omploy Ger
man ohomiets and also Gormans in
ether departments, onuscd somo
alarm in England, As a consequence,
England has, within tho last ton
years, oxponded enormous sums of
money in tho establishment of spo
oial toxtilo schools.
"Tho city of Manchester, for in
stance, had three yours ago, whon I
was ovor thcro, spout over one-half
million dollars in tho establishment
and equipment of a toxtilo Behool.
Since then I have understood that
one-half mil'ion dollars moro has
boon cxpondod in its expansion. In
this country, wo must oithor go for
ward or fall bohind. Wo have
roached tho limit of what may bo
dono with picked-up knowlodgo and
with ignorant labor. Wo havo
roached tho point where tho rea!
competition betwixt tho South and
Now England mills bogims. Now
England is well aware of her neces
sities at this momont. By proper
education both together may bring
tho United StatcB to load tho world.
"An important toxtilo Behool haB
boon fouudod in Lowell, MOBS., and
tho State had mado tho necessary
provision to furnish ??25,000 cadi for
three other BCIIOOIB to bo located in
any cities which will givo an equal

touimcu \Yi\dvy: this provision, and it
is understood that nnothoi OT? will

Tho man selected to become prin
cipal of tho Lowoll school waB taken
out of Mr. Tompkins1 oflico in Char

and wo navo no doubt that ho will
bo able to teach tho Yankees a groat
many things about cotton manufac
turing that they have novor know,
before. Howovor this may bo, Mr
Tompkins ia right whon ho says
"We have reached tho limit of wha
