A companion bill, introduced by Senator McLaurin, is pending in the senate. Senate-Thursday. Thursday's sessions of the senate were of a tentative nature. Nothing, so far as bills are concerned, was defi nitely decided upon.

Senator Sinkler substituted for hi: medical college bill the Barnwel house bill and this measure amendec is now on the calendar of the senat< with the status of a third reading bill The Charleston delegation bi: amended so as to include Richlant among other counties in regulating the division of dispensary profits tc give the schools a larger share wai passed and returned to the houst amended.

OF GREAT VALUE TO SOUTH Many Exhibits Showing The Progress of Rural Life Development-How it Will Help Farmers of South Car. olina-Exposition School. Columbia. - After affording the farmers of the state a three weeks' liberal education, the fifth National Corn Exposition closed its doors. From every viewpoint the exposi tion must be considered as a success. The attendance was most gratifying and the advertisement given South Carolina, by the fact that the biggest agricultural exposition in the country was held within her confines, can not be measured in terms of dollars and cents. But the most permanent good done the state was the awakening of the farmers of South Carolina to a real ization of what systematic and scien tific agricultural methods can accom plish, and the theories demonstrated as practicable at the.Xorn Exposition will doubtless be incorporated into the internal economy of thousands of this state who owe their living directly to the soil. For while nominally a "corn expo sition," everything appertaining to modern agriculture had a place in the building. South Carolina, too long a one-crop state, was given a chance to perceive what diversification of crops really means. The exhibits were of the highest or der, 24 states sending the choicest products of their fields for the in spection of the exposition visitors. The exhibit of the United States gov ernment of agriculture was the most e'borate ever sent out by the govern ment. The importance o e expostlion was realized by the leadin men o the nation, and its great aid in thering the cause of scientific agricul ture was recognized in the visit of 'James Wilson, secretary of the agri culture of the United States, and of the entire agricultural committee of - the national house of representatives. Industries allied to farming held important conferences in Columbia during the term of the exposition. The American Breeders' Association held its annual convention in LeConte College at the University, the Amer ican Berkshire congress convened at Columbia and the annual meeting of the South Carolina Live Stock Asso ciation was held in connection with the exposition. The show of the South Carolina Poultry Association was held here. The midwinter conference of the National Farmers' Union was attend ed by President C. E. Barrett and other officials from every state in the South. The National Corn Exposition prob ably marked the gr.eatest ~gathering of men and women in the United States who are working for the bet terment of agricultural conditions and the improvement of rural community life. Several hundred young boys and girls, members of the corn clubs and tomato clubs, who, had won prizes for proficiency in agriculture in 12 South ern States, were the guests of the ex positfon during the first week. These young prize winners attenled the ex positicn school of instruction and were taught lessoais that will be in valuable to them in their after life. ISouth Carolina New Enterpriscs. Columbia.-The secretary of s.tate has issued a commission to the Cen tr-al Drug Companay of Spartanburg ~wth a capital cf $12,000. The offi cers are Isaac Andrews, president; G. deFoix Wilson, vice president; R. E. Kibler, secretary and treasurer. A charter has been issued to the John sonville Hardware Company with a capital of $10,000. The officers are: S. B. Poston, president; C. C. Rich ardson, vice president; W. P. Gener Iette, secretary, and Arthur Rogers, treasurer. Compulsory Education Last Wednes<,ay was a red letter day in Columbia for Pick-. ens county. One of our repre sentatives in the legislature put thru a compulsory education Ibill-the first in the history of the state, and one that was thought to be impossible. But Mr. McCravey, with energy and ability, won for the state and Icounty a victory which will grow brighter as the years go bv. This is considered the most important piece of legislation in South Carolina in several years. and it is thought will pass the senate. A dispatch from Columbia says: "Representative IMcCrav ev is receiving many letters of c'-ngratulations.from all sections of the'state upon the passage of , his compulsory education meas ure, He made a hard and able Ro-ht for the masure."
