better try another tree for your " 'pos

Dear Sir : ? - A Convention composed of
delegates from the Southern States and
Cities was held in Chicago in Febiuary
to consider the advisability of holding
an Exposition of Southern resources and
products in that City this year, and to
doviBo ways and means for covering the
cost of such an exposition. The Con
vention resolved without a dissenting
voice that the Exposition should be held.
The City of Chicago pledged itself to
undertake the whole expense of organiz
ing and maintaining the Exposition.
The several Southern States under
took, on their part, to provide tho ex
hibits, and to pay the expense of collect
ing, arranging and organizing their ex
Whan the delegates from South Caro
lina met in Chicago, it was deemed
advisable that if the Legislature failed
to make an appropriation to place before
the world the products and resources of
our various cotton and other industries
at the Exposition in Chicago, a trial
should be made to raise the necessary
funds from other sources. The Legisla
ture you are aware, did nothing for the
end in view, and it now becomes my
duty, by the authority of the Governor
of the State, to invite you to attend a
Convention to bo held at Spartanburg,
on Wednesday evening, April 15th, 1806,
for tne purpose of providing a plan by
which an Exhibit of the industries of the
State shall be made at Chicago. It is
hardly necessary for me to place before
you the imperative reasons why we of
this State onould make the best exhibit.
The great development of our Cotton
Factories, the natural advantages wo
have of climate, water power, and cotton
raised around the Mills must invite the
attention of capital, thereby making our
State not only foremost in agriculture,
but also in Cotton fabric industries.
In no other way can our farmers he
more judiciously helped than bv giving
tbem a market, we might say, near to
each and every farm, thereby linking
together agriculture, manufactures and
I request, therefore, that the Mayore
and Intendants of the Cities and Towns
in the State attend the Convention at
Spartanburg, and appoint three dele
gates from each of the Cities and Towns
to represent .their several municipalities
in this Convention, for tbe purpose of
insuring an Exhibit by South Carolina
at Chicago.
I request that each of the Cotton manu
facturing enterprises in the State ap
point representatives to attend the
Convention in Spartanburg.
I also request that each of the Rail
road companies doing business in the
State will appoint a representative to
attend the Convention.
I shall be obliged if you will inform
me at your earliest convenience the
names of the delegates you have ap
pointed in response to this address.
Farmers have their work very
well in hand. The corn is begin

Miss Perrin Farrow gave, in a
very interesting manner, her meth
od ot teaching history, and judging
from the close attention given her
by the teachers, her teaching
mutt be interesting to her pupils.
She further demonstrated that she
was thoroughly posted.
Prof. McElroy gave a most inter
esting address on teaohing as a
profession, and the imposition per
petrated upon the profession by the
makeshifts. It would have been
profitable to the school system if
all the school officers of the county
could have been present and heard
the address.
The next meeting of the Associa
tion will be held on Saturday, April
i8th, at 11 a. m., at Laurens, in the
Courthouse. The following is the
programme: t
Dr. J. R. Smith will address the
Association on a subject of his own
Dr. J. J. Boozer on the impor
tance of of teaching Physiology
and Hygiene in the sohools, fol
lowed by Miss Mary Osborn.
Prof. H. Z. Nabors on the ad
vantages of a Summer School for
teachers, followed by Miss Bailie
Miss Clatie McDaniel on "Why
should school trustees visit and
take part in the deliberations of the
Teachers' Association," followed
by Trustee James C. Hill.
It is hoped all the teachers and
trustees of the county will attend
the next meeting of the Associa
It will be decided at the next
meeting of the Association whether
or not we will have a Summer
Tobacco and Etiquette,
We, as teachers, should do all
in our power to get our pupils to
drop the filthy habit of using to
bacco, but never force it, because
we have heard the silver heads of
our land say that it was a matter of
impossibility to make a boy, with
the habit firmly established, hon
estly drop it. He will tell untruths
about it, and even steal tobacco
when he wouldn't anything else;
and above all things let us teach
them to honor, love and practice
truth and honesty, for they are the
most important things in the char
acter of a true citizen. We should
put the lad upon his honor and al
low him to come on to school.?
Teach him to use it with all polite
ness possible. Do not allow him
to use in the presence of the chil
dren who has not taken up the
habit. Do all in the power of a
teacher to prevent further introduc
tion of tobacco into the school.
If we find the lad is not keeping
the command concerning its use
then bring in the punishment.
Knowing, as we do, education to
be the means in the future of our
being able to keep our heads above
the water, we should do all in our
power to bring into school every
child between six and twenty-one
years of age, which would be a
matter of impossibility if the boys
of the teens were compelled to do
away with tobacco. They would
not enter school etiquette. I think
etiquette drills should be given
weekly in the schools from the fact
that so little is being done in that
line in so many homes of our pupils;
so many of the children are ignor
ant of the most common rules of
etiquette. I hope the teachers will
consider the matter, and some kind
teacher or some friend of education
will prepare an article containing a
drill of etiquette suitable to our
schools and present it through our
column, or that the committe of
the library will order a volume on
etiquette, which will be unani
mously adopted and practiced by
the teachers.

What others Say.
Tho manifestoes of Tillman and
Irby respectively have created a
quoer situation in Laurens county.
The Laurensvill6 Herald, owned
by Postmaster Crews, has been
edited for years by his son, W. T.
Crews. Young Crews has lately
shown a decided preference for
Tillman over Irby, and an approval
so marked of tho former's political
programme that his father, the
postmaster?who not long ago had
to step in and unsay what his son
had Ma id In endorsement of Tilt
man's senatorial attack on Cleve
land?has been prompted to re-as
sume the editorship of The Herald.
Hesignali7.es his return to active
journalism by denouncing Tin
man's counsel as "perniciously
bad" and by warmly commneding
Irby's stand. Unless Tillman re
cedes from his position, Postmaster
Crows says, "he shall be reluctantly
compelled to part company with
him." In tho meantime it is an
nounced that Crews, tho son, who
is not a postmaster, is about to start
a paper called the "Free Silver
Democrat," backed by Senator
Irby's enemies, and the natural in
ference is drawn that it will sup
port Tillman and fight Irby. Lau
rens county this year, with Tillman
against Irby and Crews flls against
Crews pere, will be a mighty juicy
sort of county to live In.?The State.
