Communities Can Have
There is a gtd dl being said
about the progress being made in
I'nion county, especially in the mat
ter hi education. This progress is
really gratifying o those who watch
and rare for such tiling, but it is
not near what it ought U be. Men
well qualified to eak on the sub
jivt tell u that it is needless to ex
ited the general public whool funds
of the State to be much increased in
a long time. And the amount now
received from the State will not give
to any progressive county like this
the school facilities that it needs.
The people of intelligent communi
ties ought not to be, and are not, sat
isfied w ith the work that can be done
for their children from the public
funds alone. There is a way that
everv such community can have its
school improved to an adequate de
gree without working any hardship
whatever on anvbmlv. That wav is
simply for the eople to levy a small
tax on themselves fr their school.
There are now eight such districts in
the county, bi-siiletsthe Monroe gra
ded schools, doing this and not a one
has regretted tlie step. I'nder the
public school law any district can
tax itself for any amount not exceed
ing thirty cents on the r'liHlaiii
ninety cents (in the h11 for this pur
pose. Such districts get the choice
of teachers, because they pay more.
And they have longer and better
terms than the ordinary schools.
The districts already organized in
the county all have two or more
teachers with one exception, and ac
cordingly the work done is much
more satisfactory. People of the
countv who are interested in giv ing
their children educational
cot too. There was a tremendous
lust in the past aeasoo as a result of
holding outlun in unprotected place.
Beside this, the warehouse system,
by which fanners may not only safe
ly store their cotton, but by reason
of which they may secure money on
it w hen the market is too low to sell,
will give them the big end of the
proposition. As a result of the or
ganization 'if the fanners cotton is
now bringing a good price in spite
of the fact that the last crop was the
largest ever grown in the history of
the world. But if they relax their
efforts now the present fine strategi
cal osition will be bard to gain
again. Though the price is now
above ten cents, the shortness of the
present crop and the large demand
of the trade for next year may make
the natural price very much higher
than this. If so the growers ought
to keep themselves in a position to
demand its full worth.
Long live etiket, especially the
European brand! With all his ver
satility Mr. Roosevelt had been
scratching his head a good deal over
the question of how to introduce the
Russian and Japanese envoys to each
other in such a way that neither
should suffer in their ideas of digni
ty. The question was whether he!1"" ' k b,,t lur '"J"""
should say, "Mr. Kuss, this is Mr.
Jap," or, "Mr. Jap, this is Mr. Kuss."
Happily the question was settled in
a way to put no obstacle in the wax
to the discussion of pcai-e terms.
The President is being justly con
gratulated on his diplomat')', and the
cnvovs are now readv to begin talk
ing at once. We should like to know

During the past week the fever

can be done. It is much cheaper for
all concerned than private schools.

the lienelit of the children. 1-et the
live communities of the county
whose parents want to give their
children the advantages they should
have and winch thev must have if
they are to go into the world with
equal chances, begin to talk of this
matter. Nothing is so emphatically
a neighborhood affair. The people
of the local tax districts have full
management of the funds and of
their schools. Anv district of the
county that desires to do so can, by
levying a small tax, have funds
enough to supplement the winter
school for four full months with gixid
teachers and then have two months
summer term besides.
"The threat of the private car com
panies to raise the rates on fruits and
berries from the South next season
probably means that this will be
done, for the truckers are absolutely
at the mercy of these concerns."
There's got to be a new declara
tion of independence in this coun
try, and we'd as well come along
with it. That a greedy and rascally
corporation of Chicago should be
able to say absolutely what the peo
ple of this great section shall receive
for their produce, if indeed they al
low it to be sold at all, is unlike
what should be in this country.
There are three scluxils of go-called
statesmanship in the United States
now. The dominant one L repre
sented by the leading principles of
the Republican party, which in sub
stance is, "Give the trusts and fren
zied financiers and all representa
tives of large capital whatever thev
want and let the people take what
ever the cormorants choose to give
The school which stands next to this
is the one of ponderous but ob
solete theory, represented by men of
Mr. Cleveland's kind. It can be
summed up in the idea of whatever
is right vested interests don't dis-
turb them they are as they should
be thousands of people live in ten
rmenta unfit for healthy dogs they
have always lived there that'i the
place for them. The last school is
the militant crowd, like Tom Watson.
They are for something better and
don't know exactly what it is, but
are not afraid to move for fear the
house will tumble down on then)
When the people have become suffi
ciently exasperated they are going to
take up with the latter crowd and
something will be doing. We dare
not think how king it will be before
this time arrives, for the longer it is
delayed the more lively will be the
bear the exeiise. This the city
is gladly willing to do, and the
experts of the government are now
taking charge. No doubt their more
efficient service will soon get the
scourge under control. Up until t In
present there have been ' cases
and 113 deaths.
The many sided Roosevelt is a

The proposition to build a cotton

undoubtedly the key to the situation
if Oie farmers mean to persevere in
their determination to have an im
portant say-so in the prioe of their
Ijy Sermon by Brother Roosevelt.
President Roosevelt preached a lav
sermon at Oyster Bay Sunday at the
invitation of the Christian Brother
hood. The remarks are gid enough
for a regular sermon and good
enough reading for any of us. In
part the President said:
Brother Bowman has spoken of
the fact that I have had a large ex
perience. 1 think that every one of
us who has a large experience grows
to realize more and more that the
essentials of experience are alike for
all of us. The things that move us
most, the things of the home, of the
lurch, the intimate relations that
knit a man to his familv, to his close
friends, that make him try to do his
duty by his neighbor, by his Cod,
are in their essentials just the same
for one man as for another, provided
the man is in good faith trying to do
Ins duty. I feel that the progress of
our country really depends upon the
sum of the efforts of the individuals
acting by themselves, but esiieciallv
upon the gum of the efforts of the
individuals acting in associations
like this for the betterment of them
selves and the communities in which
they dwell. There is never anv ditli-
culty about the forces of evil being
organized. Every time that we get
an organization like this, we are
doing our part to offset, and a little
more than offset, the forces of evil

find fault. Above all be not quick
to judge another man who, according
to his light, is striving to do his
duty as each of us here hopes he is
striving to do his. Let us ever re
member that not only we have divine
authority for the statement that by
our fruits we shall be known, but
that also it is the truth that mankind
will tend to judge us by our fruits.
