A WORK FOll THE SOUTH WELL DONE. The Life of John C. Calhoun by Gus? tnvus M. Pinckney? Of Interest nnd Value. Even to tho averago South Carolin ian, tho suggestion of reading a life of Johu C. Calhoun would seem a heavy undertaking. One thinks of Calhoun with awe, as of an intellectual wizard who wrote and .-poke, in weighty syl logisms. The average mind recoila at tho notion oi "syllogism." In these days the averago reader craves "sto rk 8." Tho habit of reading books of travel, essays, history aud biography is rare unions young people who havo good school advantages as well as among thoso whoso learn'ng Is limited to tho "three r's." Tho Life of John C. Calhoun, which Me. Gustavus M. Pinckney of Charles ton has written and which has just come from tho pross of tho Walker, Evans & Cogswell Co., Charleston, Is not only a valuable work but It ought to bo popular. It Is not a largo vol umo?250 pages In bold, clear typo. One can read it carefully in three or four nights. Mr. Pinckney writes from the point of view of an enthusiastic admirer and disciple of Mr. Calhoun. No detailed history of the statesman's life is at tempted. Tho endeavor has been to cull from tho massos of American his torical literature in which Mr. Calhoun IIg 11 res and from his own writings so much as will lllustrato his motives, his methods of reasoning and the results. Thoso results speak for themselves in a few oonciso conclusions cn political questions which have nob been paral leled for strength, lucidity and elemen tal permanence by any other Ameri can statesman. Mr. Pinckney has made clear that Mr. Calhoun discerned, analyzed and classified practically all tho important questions of a political naturo likoly to bo discussed in con nection with the American Constitu tion. Mr. Calhoun'a vision was scarcely liml'ed by time or circumstances and Mr l'inckney's selections from his utter ances show them not less applicable to the politics of today than to the politics of tho days of Clay and Webs'or. In truth, herein lies tho value of the book. It is as though Mr. Calhoun were not dead but rather had gone on a long jour ney during which his teachings had been p.utially forgotten. Mr. l'ineknoy has brought him back to South Carolin ian?, directed their attention to a fow of hifjcloar, penetrating, truth revoal ing id error dispelling doctrines in such Jianner that the reader in this twentieth century fee's himself brought near to the great prophet ol tho constitution, Is under his voice and hold by the charm of his serene, puic ai d exalted personalty. Thero is not a dull page in the book. Tho (j notations arc not too long. The style Is compact, forceful and at times eloquent. The book is es pecially refreshing beeauso it Is bold. It contains neither the apology nor concealinont with which some South ern writers about Calhoun have en deavored to sneak before Northern au .diences. White the work Is essentially politi cal, we wish lo impress that it will ap peal to any and to all Intelligent read ers . Out of tho pages always come9 the personality of Mr. Calhoun and one beholds tho hero as weil as tho states man?a mind and character fo perfect in conduct and utterance as to make the beau ideal of intellectual knight hood and chain the attention not less than tho doughty figures of Walter Scott's tales. "We hear much In these days of tho n:ce*slty for Southern History and .A-werlc'an history written by Southern ?men. The life of Calhoun is at the ibottom of whatever Southern history Js worth preserving. No man unfa miliar with Calhoun and his <.work knows why Southern men fought for the Confederacy. There Is no nearer way to an understanding of the South's attitude in the union today than through Mr. Calhoun's doctrines. In brief form, full of 'nterest, Mr. Pinck ney has given all these. If our people roally wish history written by South erners and telling tho story straight and fair, they must be willing to en jcourago it by nt least buying the jbo^fes. The placing of a book, espec ially m, book not "a trifle light as air" ,1s always a doubtful venture from a (financial point of view. The publica tion of this Life of Calhoun will ha an indication whethor or not the insistent clamor of tho last few years for South ern histories has had an earnoat desire behind it While not written for use as a text book, this Ufa 0/ Calhoun is admirably adap'ed for parallel reading in the schools and colleges of this South. .Our Now Discovery is sold by W.

Dials, August, US.?Tho weather has been extremely warm for tho last few days which makes It vory uncom fortable for tho "big" meeting which has boen in progress for tho last few weeks. Nevertheless, the young men seem lo enjoy themselves very muoh in carrying their best girls out to church. But then, dear renders, what Is more onoouraging to an old "bache lor" than to see a large congregation of nice young people? Some preach ers seem to think it is not nice for boys and girls to sit together durfng services, but I ntn sure if the ministers would encourage instead ( f relinking them for sitting together in church there would* be fewer young men ssunding outside, smoking their cigar ettes and tulking during preaching. There is nothing that will so cultivate and clevato a hoy to nobler deeds and thoughts in til's life than li associate with the pure nnd noble girls of this day and generation.
