TO BE BUILT
(-iris of Lutherans in South Carolina
to Hare an Opportunity of Educa
tion as well as Boys.
Columbia, S. C, Dec. 30.?The Luth
eran synods of South Carolina and
Tennessee will establish a college for
girls in South Carolina, This was the
decision reached yesterday, when a
eqtumittee appointed in November, met
in Columbia to discuss the matter. The
committee is composed of: Dr. E. J.
Btherldge, chairman, Leosville; C. M.
HSQrd, Lexington; J. A. Cromer, Lex
ington: C. P. Dootcr, Leesvllle; S. P.
Koon, Prosperity. The committee will
meet, in Columbia again on February
1. to open bids from cities desiring the
College and at that time it will be dell
Initely announced, where the institu
tion will bo located.
The Lutheran church is one of the
few which has not a denominational
school for girls in this State, and the
establishment of the new college will
fill a long felt want. At a joint con
ference of the South Carolina and
Tennessee synods, held in November,
it was decided to appoint the com
mittee, which met here yesterday,
with a view to looking Into the ad-1
i isabillty of establishing a college for
girls and to make a decision.
Tlio location will be decided at a
meeting held here on February 1,
Bids will be received from all towns
in this State desiring to be consid
ered, and the one offering the best
altottnd inducements will he accepted.
,\1 toady several South Carolina cities
: eve their eye on the new institution
oi learning and will wage active cam
paigns to land the location. Coluin
! la, Newborry, Spartanburg, Bates
burg and Loxington will certainly
make a great try, and no doubt other
cities will hid.
About $75,000 will be the amount
1 > ponded for buildings to begin with,
and possibly more. It Is the Idea
of the committee to push the plan
and to he ready for work next Sep
tember. That the idea, to start them,
v. :? il materialize, seems entirely proba
ble from the interest being shown
aid the contributions being made.
Dr. E. J. Etheridge, chairman of
the committee, said yesterday that the
school would compare with any in
th" state. He felt much encouraged
wl'h the interest being shown.
The Lutheran seminary is located
In Columbia as is the Lutheran Pub
lication Board's office. The Luther
an Church Visitor is published here.
The Columbia would therefore be u
very advantageous place for the loca
tion of tho new school.?The State.

Lisbon, Jan. 1.?The old year of 1911
has passed, and the new year has been
registered. We must say that we have
been wondei fully blessed, and we now
ask In the name of our lieu' en'y Fa
ther that we mty be bles.ied even as
much in 1912. While we write we
stop to think of the dear ones who
were with us on the above date, who
have passed to the great beyond and

the sun of another Christinas eve, bo

We hear some talk of the general
assembly being asked to do away with
the rural police. Now. we want to say
right here, that the rural police are
doing more good than any other ofll
cers in the state, from the fact that
they have more territory to work In.
We would like to know why these of
ficers should be done away with. They
certainly don't cost the county any
thing, in the wind up from what 1
can gather. We admit, when our
hands go to church with whiskey,
bunding it around and with a gun In
his hip pocket, ready to use it on all
occasions, and he docs use it. we have
to pay the bill as we need him on the
farm. With all of that we have a
great deal less of disorderly conduct
at these places of meeting since WO
got the rural police.

all over this county If those who have
