X. H1. AUil,l,~ ADlTOR,
There are many reasons why the 1i1)
introduced in the house last week pro
viding an appropriation of $25,000 for
an exhibit from this State at the Lou
isiana Purchase Exposition should not
In the first instance a creditable ex
hibit cannot be made for $25,000, and
any exhibit which would not truly rep
resent the State, displaying her great
resources to the best advantage, would
be worse than no exhibit at all. If
South Carolina is to have a place in
the picture that. will do her justice, she
must expend a larger sum than $?5,000.
In the present condition of the State's
finances, however, we believe that any
appropriation for this purpose would be
a mistake. We can find much better
uses for our money just now. There is
no doubt thatt. expositions are of great
benetit and that those we have had
have done the sections in which they
were held and the country at large un
told good. But taking the State's
financial condition into consideration, it
is quite too soon after our own exposi
tion held in Charlestol to appropriate
money for a South Carolina exhibit at the
ILouisiana IPurlChase Exposition.
The Ceneral Assembly did a large
amount of work last week, and some
v'ery important legislation was pushed
forward. ''he present Senate is prov
ing itself the most aggressive we have
had in some years, and if it contin'tes
along the same lines which it has beer
pursting, tintil the entd of the session,
and the ilouse will fall in line, Soutl
('aro':na will find herself in much better
condition to meet the demands of thI
present age and generation.
We are glad to see that among th
teastlres passed by the Senate is ont
providing for the at tedtiance of all thn
child"en u1pon1 the common schools f,r ai
certain length of time each year ant
one prohibiting the labor of children it
the mills. Neither nt'asre is as str ong
as it miight have been, but perhaps it i:
better not to attempt to do too much a
the start. The Compulsot y Educatior
Bill requires that every child in tht
Stazt e, bet ween thle ages of' eight ant
t welve years. attend school for at leas
eight consetutive weeks during cal
year. 'Tle Child I.abor Bill is the on.
introduced early in the session by Mr
Marshall. Its main prii ons are tha
at'ter May 1. 190,. no chili under i
years of age shall be eimployel in an
factory; aft.ov Mw \ . no chil
undrt' the age of 11. and after May I
1905, nt child undler 12years age. Pro
vision is made for children of widowet
mothers or disablled fathers or those en
ti'ely depentldent upolt their own worl
for suippol t .
IBoth Bills are goed as far as they go
I i labor in the mills will be injut ions tt
children tinder twelve years of ag,
afterm May I, 1905,. htowever, we can'
see why it will not be inijuiriouis toi chiil
dlrent under twe'lve ytears of age afte
Mlay I, 1903. And if it is injurious wi
cainSt sietn reatsoni why it shiouild con
tinue ttr twvo years. Ctertainly it wil
nott requtirte two y'ears in order that th<
mills andt the operatives may becomi

As we have said, howvever, both meas

T. J. W. Writes Interestingly on Unlos
Academy Subjects.
Representative John F. Banks spent
last Sunday at his home, returning to
the capital city on Monday.
Young Muster Sidney Slawson of
Newberry College spent last Saturduv

There was communion at Bachman

Local news seems to be veiy scarce
at this tirr . But it's not surprising.
Always after a storm there's a calm.
The killing of Gonzales was a lament
able incident. We sympathize with
both sides. G( l's word says, Thou
shalt not kill; and it also says, Thou
shalt not bear false witness.
I have just told you that local news
was scarce. So to fill up space 1 will
have to jump upon something, then, if
it will be of any interest to you. I will
give you some of my experience in
writing for the newspapers. For a
little more than sixteen years I have
occasionally had my hand on the public
pen. During this time I have written
columns upon columns. The first letter
I1 wrot , for publication nltt have been
veL y, very weak indeed, for it. went
plunging right square into the wa4te
basket. ''his made me feel vet , small,
but nevertheless I picked up courage to
try it again. So the second time I
tuned up my mind in a little different
shape and sent out another small arti
cle which popped out like a rose in half
bloom. This gave mne more courage
and it was not I .ng before I was trying
my hand agan. But very sooni miy
brother caime to me and said, if I were
youn 1 would quit w riting for the news
papers: the people are talking about
your letters, and some of them are pok
ing fun at what you say. This was a
stunner, and made te feel almost
ashamed of myn weak efforts. But I
began to realize the fact that every
thing had to have a beginning, and
whent a man becomles a public servant,
just at that time he becomes a target
for the mouth of the critic and sIan
derer. So another determination struck
:\my mind to u rite on. and many long
t'ours of hard study did l spend, while
the rest of my family were in their
pea'eful beds of slumber. trying t 1 pre
pare something suitable for the read
ing public. But notwithstanding all
the criticisms I continued, knowing the
only way to achieve anything wa' it
persistence, and it was not long beforc
I met a man of an intelligent mind who
declared his surprise to know that 1

man for his kind words from the hot
tom of my heart. but felt just as I fee
now in tihe face of such stiuilhating
words: while they always have my
highest appreciation, yet I feel the)
are not deserving. My dear reader,
the object of my effol ,s along this lint
has not been to gainl notoriety, popu
larity ot to be cotnted smtt, nor any
thing of this kind, because I knew that
nothing of this kind makes a man what
he ought to be. Sometimes I think

.have always tried to let them cotme
ftomi an honest conviction of my own
way of thinking, and I am not above
critiucisnm by any means, for very often
honest criticism is the life of its; a
.great thought once utttered cani never

through the mindls of men. In conclu

their kind wvords will always be chter

instrumental in creating one single
