While the University of Virginia has almost universally) been credited with being thflporlglnator of the honor sys tem, the bulletin shows that priority '.s also claimed by William and Mary College, Virginia. Thia institution Is declared to have had a form ot the honor system in 1779. and to have In troduced lt through its graduates into ffce University of Birg!ula. The honor or establishing the system has also been claimed for the University of south Carolina Among the Institutions of Ute country that have the honor system In one or all departments are: Princeton University, Princeton, N. J.; Cornell University, Ithaca. N. Y. ; Barnard College, .New York City; Washington and Leo University. Lamington, Ba.; Smith College.

Bryn Mawr, Pa.; Mount Hol yoke College South Hadley, Mass.; and Rose Polytechnic Institute, Terrel Haute, R&JJHM?TO'' "Thor* aro Institutions whera ! peculiar eonditions militate against the adoption of the honor system," declares'.Dr. Balwin, compiler of the bflW9. T'neoiogical seminaries and iain military schools are cited In this connection. St. Jrsoph's Senn? navy, St. Joseph, Mo., reports that "The naturally good character lng for the priesthood does not cmife th? honor system" On the other hand, la moat military instltu " breech ot honor le considered -ons. an offense as to have defi nite penalties already provided," and no honor system IK considered neces Miry. Some Institutions (rankly oppose tlie honor system. Among theso are Drown University, Providence, lt. I.; Ohio University, Allions, Ohio; Yasser College, Poughkeepsie, N. Y.; Bow iloln College, Howdoiu, Me.; ?'lark College, Worchenter, Muss.; Goucher College.. Haltimon?, Md.; und Trinity College, Durham, N. C. Tho president of Clark Colleg?. declares that "to) task a student to sign a pledge that he has nc tieated In an examination IK like uskirig a reputable man to hand up a sign in his store that he does not uso short weights." A few. institutions ure cited us hav ing tried the system uud declared lt a failure. Among these ure Franklin and Marshull ollege, Lancaster, Pa.; the State University of Iowa, Iowa, City; und William Jewell College, Liberty, Mo. The bulletin gives as types of con BtltiiMot.8 for tho conduct of the honor system those of Princeton and Cornel Universities. EVEN IN CHARLESTON. Judging from the news that comes from Charleston, the indications are that the quiet, determined way that the governor has taken hold of th" enforcement of law there ls going to bring things to pass. The blind ti gers were raided without notice a few days ago and several of them ure reported as saying that they were going out ?if business. While wa-have very little confi ance |n promises made by people of this character, we have all confidence th the fine effect that will result from the strict enforcement of the lawj When law breakers learn that there is a determination* upon the part of the officers, In whOBe hands is plac ed law enforcement, they are not go ing to,take the risk of defying them. This is all that is needed. Charles ton has had her why h long time, but even Charleston may be made to come to time. There aro any num ber of good people In that city who have no sympathy whatever with the way things have been going on there, and they will give all the sympathy and encouragement that may bo i necessary to those who are in earn ! est about a change In conditions. We do not believe that there will be any ?need for radical measures. Tho pol icy pursued by Gov. Manning is the best and will prove effectual. If lt does not there will bo time enough to resort to something different. I What must Impress every one is 'the quiet, dignified way In which the governor has mach? known his wishes as to law enforcement, not only in Charleston, but everywhere. There ls something about such a course that commands' the respect 'mit only nf good people, but even the lawless admire it, and are more readily in duced to submit. No one likes ' the bully and the blusterer who fills the earth with fulminations to to what he will or will not do. We imagine that even a blind tiger likes n man like the governor, and that there is In him a kind of admiration that makes him feel like not resisting him In his efforts to have what is right done.-Greenwood Journal. A MARKET DAY, NEED OF SOUTHERN TOWNS (Atlanta Constitution.) By Charles A Whittle, Georgia State College of Agriculture. Editor' Constitution. Once a week a "Market Day" for every small town In the South! The '.'Market Day" will do more than anything else to start farm pro ducts moving to .consuming centers. To move diversified farm products from where they are grown and where there ts no market is the big problem of agriculture In the South, right now. The pres?r.e. commercial machinery does not move it and will not move lt. Why? Our present commercial ma chinery ls the Kouth is not. adjusted to taking care of small quantities ol various farm crops. Farmers nra nut going to venture to grow large quantities ot other crops than cotton. Thcreiore, they will have small quan tities to offer. The f-mall quantities of various crops must be assembled to mage a big shipment, to attract buyers, to create competition and get the best the market will offer. There must be central places where farmers can bring their crops, meet buyers and barter. To get the farmers together at one place with what they have to offer for sale,' there shouh* be a "Mark*: Day." Not only ' should the farmers assemble their products In one place and on s market day but the country merchant should bring, tho produce he has taken In exchange for goods sud there sell to the best advantage. The . larger the quantity of farm produce assembled on a market day, tho more buyers there will be. ' Large Osiers of Georgia or other States will be only too glad to send buyers where there ls enough produce to buy to make lt worth while, enough buy ers, In fact, to create competition. Gelting Together. Not only produce, but live stock, will rtnd buyers on a market day. It will be considered a fine opportunity for a buyer .to have the live stock come together ?4e meet him -rathe* than he should go out to meet it In tact, the "Merket Day" should be the one opportunity'for farmers and their wives to assemble at tho most convenient town and meet buyers who sra going to send what they buy to a consumer somewhere. What would European farmers do without a "harket DayT" lt ls the arrangement above al others for the economical handling ul' the small of ferings ot the farm class. Who will designate tb? "Market DayT" Who ran better do lt than the local chamber of, commerce? Whose inter ests will it servo better than the funner, if not iii . busineiH men who ena)pose a chamber of commerce? The mure farm products are auld at tlie market place on market day, the trade the town will pick up. Not only is it of interest to thc business men of a town to get as much funn produce assembled, but it is to their interest to encourage buy ers to come. It may be the part of wisdom to have a circuit for buyerB and succes sion of market days for the various towns. This would admit of one buy er visiting several .marketa, thus sav ing expense. Does this not offer u field of useful ness for the Georgia Stute Chamber of Commerce? The Hort of Neighbor Who Will Make Farm Life What lt Should lie. As a matt. r of fact, the up to date farmer's social and business life ure so interwoven that they can't be sep arated. In any thoroughly wake-up farming neighborhood the sort of comradeship, enthusiasm, and gener ous rivalry that a white man wants can only be found In a white neigh bor-and there must be enough of those white neighbors to Rive this comradeship and friendly rivalry in abundant measure. It's not enough to have the distant, limited and non-social relations we can have with negroes. I want a neighbor who will go with me to my farmers' meeting and get inspiration with me and talk with mc about the things wo heard discussed. I want a neighbor who can light a lightwood torch o' nights and come over with his wife or boy or girl and sit with me and mine while we plan for better things. I want a neighbor whose boy will ho In the corn club with my boy and will go to the meetings with my boy and will go to the meetings with him and spur up my boy to do his best. I want a neighbor whose wife will go to thc meeting of the United Farm Women with my wife and come over and help entertain when my wife has the United Farm Women meeting with her. I want a neignbor whosng Irl will be with my girls in canning club work, und who can be my girl's roommate when she goes off to college. I wont a neighbor who will support the school end church and Sunday school of my race end help keep them strong. I want a , neighbor who shares all the asplra I tiona of my race and can cooperate I with mo as a citlzon and voter in i bringing better things to nass. I want a neighbor who can join mc ns a full equal in starting a?v sor', of co operative enterprise. I want a neighbor who will join me In a rural credit society. I want a neighbor with whom I can sit down and laugh and talk at my fireside os .ve talk over plans for marketing our crops or doing our work. I want a neigh bor for whom my boy can work whenever he needs help, and not mind earning an honest dollar by working for him In his fields. I want a neigh bor who can go with me. comrade like, to the State farmers' meeting, or join mc In somo requests I have to make of the county commissioners, or comfort mo as a brother when death or sorrow comes to my home| I want a neighbor whose Un.*, sturdy Bons and daughters I can watch growing up and see In their beautiful friendship with my own boys and girls a promise of yet closer ties be tween my neighbor and me-a prom ise of new home-nests when he and I have passed away. These are the things that any nor mal, healthy minded white farmer s\?lilts to find in aa many neighbors ns possible; and therefore the whiter the neighborhood the better the chance to develop either a highly or ganized and profitable type of farm ing or richer rural social life. In the face of such facts we leave for our readers to say whether lt is truth or a slander when Dr. W. D. Weather ford declares tn his nrticle opposing land segregation that the testimony ot Southern white fnrmers with whom he has talked and corresponded is that-- \" - "they do not at all object to their negro neighbors, and lo not a few cases have I had them, say that they even i referred the negro neighbors." -The Progressive Farmer.

STATEMENT From President of Hammond! School Improvement Asso ciation in Reference to Matter. In a communication appearing be low Mr?. Fat W. Major, president of the Hammond School Improvement Association, discusses in a. very force ful and clear-cut manner the question of the value to the rural schools" bf a supervisor, and makes a plea for the Continuation of this work. The asso ciation of which she ls the head offers to contribute $25 to the maintenance of the office for* Anderson county, and suggests that other school im provement associations of the county come forward with such subscriptions as they can and make up a fund to pay the expenses of a supervisor with out the county board of education being called upon for any assistance. There are 8t> school imprqvemunl associations in the county. The cost of the supervisor's work ls about $7.ri0 or $800, thus showing that the. indi vidual associations would not be Very heavily taxed to make contributions sufficient to keep up the work. The communication from Mrs. Major Is as follows: Every rural community needs auch a forum as tho country school should provide, but lt doesn't. The school im provement association is only begin ning too, and, we all know the most difficult thing ls the beginning. Much benefit has already been reaped from this organized work in the rural dis trict. It has meant intelligent co operation and encouraged a social spirit, a big help in solving the coun try life's biggest problem. The coun try schools need the rural school Im provement association, th? school as sociation needs a rural school super visor. 1 No one who studies the educational system of America and for one mo ment be content with the conditions of the rural schorls of Anderson county today. New school buildings in tlie county are what they should be in comfort, in beauty, In refine ment and in sanitation. Doea not the country child born, to the ' iritage | (of fresh air, sunshine and strength) r.f all nature, deserve that his days In thc school room be spent under an favorable environment as the town gives to Us child? . Ie-there-any ree1-' son why he should?not enjoy during his hours of school work, fresh air, proper temperature an<l a Bense of genuine comfort? Is there such a atmosphere prexud- ] lng our rural schools? fiefc we.need' tho work ot a supervisor. We* need her to direct the work of. organized effort foi the health of school child ren, and to help In giving them thc education that will fit them for morr efficient living. Certainly moro will be required of the boys and giris In training now, if they are to be the leaders in the next generation. A readjustment of rural Behool educa tion so that it may fit these boys ant girls for more efficient living in a question of vital importance.. This reconstruction is a delicate and diffi cult task, all the more need then, ot someone to do lt. This Is the problem yet unsolved. We are face to face with the big question, of how this is to be done and who ls to do lt, since we have no school supervisor. We would like to know what part of their solution of this problem be longs to school boards, what part to teachers, and what part'to Behool su pervisors. Now should thia work hp separat ed? If the Behool improvement associa tion will come forwumrd and support J this work by keeping the suaervlsprs'l office open, this problem willie ipartlyT solved. Perhaps, she could give us} mere time and some ot the work she has been doing would be up to some- i body else. Since we baxie reached the point of realising the needs of a rural su pervisor, our object ls to keep thc work going. In order to achieve re sults, we need something mere than ] realization and enthusiasm, we need system and directness ot effort. There are some eighty school im provement associations id Anderson county. If each association' will come j forward and pledge ten dollars ($10) the supervisors work can be kept go ing during this crisis. The associa tions could do no better work, sud we feel sure a fund'will be provided If Anderson county ls to island for progressiveness along Educational lines.
