With Trieks and Ways of
The State.
In Camp With the -South Carolina
Troops in the El Paso Patrol District,
Aug. 28.?The matter of releasing
the college students from the National
Guard is up for consideration in
all the organizations on the border
and at the State mobilization grounds. I
Only bona fide students are eligible1
to come unae this provision and
fhoir 9rp tn hft let out in tii.ie for the
opening of the colleges in September
Just how many of the South Carolinians
will come under this provision i
is not known and very little has beer ,
freard of it around the South O.iro-'
lina camp.
Col. iSprings estimates that about j
10 per cent, of the Second regiment
would be affected bv the college stu-1
dent order and certainly the percent-j
age of the First and of the cavalry j
engineer and? field hospital unStb
would not be any greater. Very fe "

The Second battalion of the Second
regiment, the Columbia battalion, under
Maj. T. E. Marchant, went on
dress p'-.rade on Tuesdav afternoon
j and made a fine showing. The Sec|
end battalion of the First regiment
i under Maj. T. B. Spratt held dress
parade Tuesday afternoon andi aci
quitted themselves equally as well. j
! Maj. T. E. Marchant of the Second
battalion of the Second regiment
| has had wooden blocks put in his tent
| for flooring and Capt. Joe Marshall of
the Brookland Light infantry declares
j that Maj. Marchant is having a little
! bit of Washington street, Columbia.
! which is paved wth wooden block, fo~ j
iiis tent floor. The Columbians are j
j watching to see if the blocks in tlie j
; maior's tent wiil swell every time j
is a rain and expand like Wash-j
: ington street blocks. Tliev* suggest:
i "
! that if this happens there might in
tinie be enough block to floor the tents
; of all the officers belonging to the
; Second battalion.
Capt. G. H. Mahon, Jr., adjutant of
the First regiment, is happy now because
<a wooden floor has been put in
headquarters tent, largely increasing j
the room and making the tent much!
more substantial.
Oapt. W. L. Gillespie of the Cheraw
company of the First regiment has returned
from a visit to the Elephant
i Butte dam about 75 miles from here
where the government is building a

country. Capt. Gillespie reports a
I fine trip and is loud in his praises of

appears to be to send out regiments j

How many of the scnoois of the
South are teaching the savings habit
through the instrumentality of tne |
savings bank in the school house? |
This practical 'departure in education j
is comon in the schools of the North
and West. In one of the New York j
city school banks the children deposited
the sum $3,929 from February to
June, over 1.500 youthful bankers be
ing the customers. Every school in
the country ought to operate a savings
bank. It is the easiest and most
effective way of instilling the spirit of
thrift into the mind of a child at a
time when it is most receptive of i
ideas.?Charlotte Observer.
