The Chester Lantern claims that Chester was the first county to agitate the good roads movement to any great extent, and the Abbeville Press and Banner knows nothing about that but does know that "Abbeville has some as good roads as we expect to see before we shall be a resident of that city which is paved with golden bricks." We are glad to know that Chester has long been an advocate of good roads and we hope that her agita tion has accomplished much good. We are glad to know that Abbeville has roads very little inferior to those in that city which is paved with golden bricks. And we are glad to know that the editor of the Press and Banner is traveling such good roads on a straight course to that city, and we hope he won't be lonely when he gets there, so far as his brother editors are concerned. We congratulate Chester and Abbeville and Editor Wi'son. We only wish that every county in-the State could have been the first to start the agitation for good roads and that every county in the State could have got the good roads first. We have good roads in Newberry, too, but we don't bring them out in rainy weather. The patriotic observance through out the South of the anniversary of the birth of General ,Robert E. Lee speaks well for the future of the Southern people. No people have a prouder heritage, and it is their duty to cheriss it. and to teach their children to cherish it. The alumni of the South Caro lina college have determined to raise $5,ooo to aid young men in obtaining an education. Carolina is loyal to her alumni, her alumni are loyal to her, an&the institution, the alumni and the whole State are receiving the benefits. In his inaugural address delivered before the Mississippi general as sembly this week, Gov. James K. Vardaman, it is reported, "declared that education is the curse of the negro race and urged an amend ment to the State constitution that will place the distribution of the common school fund solely within the power of the legislature.'' Mis sissippi is unfortinate in having a governor who refuses to look be neath the surface in order to find the truth. The remedy is not to cut off education from the negro. but to see to it that he is given the right kind of educaticn. STATE IMPIIGRAT101N SOCGETY.
