(This paper written by R. M. Ken Kennedy,

Indeed the subject has been even so
little discussed that, if not now time timely,

There is no official source in the

I believe, are unsatisfactory.
From the 1909 report, the last is issued,

three libraries in South Carolina
classified as "free" namely the
state library, the "Nellie Scott" at
Clinton and the Carnegie library at
Benedict college, Columbia. The

Since that report there have been
established three others which, more
than any of these, may be considered
free, the only ones in the state, so

At the Wrong End
We lag, with ta very few of the
most unprogressive commonwealths
of the South and far West, at the fag
end of the great free library move
ment in America, which William
Jennings Bryan, in a recent speech.
has characterized as "the most im
portant development of modern
times." Massachusetts boasts a pub public

states, even in the South, are striv

Our want of library facilities is
not due to a lack of wealth now
among our people, nor to a lack of
culture in our educated classes, but
it is because there has been no or
ganized movement to arouse a prop
er and intelligent interest.
I shall treat at thisHime more par
ticularly of the relation of the public
library to the public school.
I am aware of the rapid develop
ment of common and high schoo
libraries in South Carolina of recent
years thanks to the enlightened
policy of our department of educa
tion so that, today, practically ev

: little state-aided collection of books
I know, too, that some of our colle
es have excellent libraries,' more or
less available, but for reference
work only, to the fortunate citizens
of the communities in which they
are located. That at the university,
for instance, Is largely used as a ref-
;DF 11 ME A VOTER
Mr. W. T. Gary, Chairman of the County Democratic
Sent a Copy of the Following Letter to Every
Voter in Marion County
The recently enacted Bryan Primary Law requires that only
those persons who have registered this year (1914)' may participate in
the Democratic Primary Election to be held next June. The registration
books are now open in the office of the Supervisor of Registration at
the Court House from 9 A. M. to 12 M. and from 2 P. M. to 5 P. M.
daily and until 10 P. M. each Friday.
The books will close on the 28th of this month. All j
Democrats are urged to register at once, as the books will close within
a few days.

been registered for years, you will not be entitled to participate in
the approaching primary unless you re-register for said primary

and students of the various semi seminaries
naries seminaries in Columbia.
But, in the very nature of things,
these libraries school and college,
are limited in their spheres of use usefulness,
fulness, usefulness, and entirely fail to meet the
crying educational needs of the vast
masses beyond their pale, both of
those whose schooling has been neg
lected or curtailed and of those
whose real education has but begun
when the doors of "alma mater"
close behind theni.
Not Enough for Them
Indeed, in the case of our public
school libraries, under present con
ditions, I am afraid that the wants
of those within the pale are, as a
general rule, far from satisfied The
reasons are obvious. I shall call at attention
tention attention to but a few the lack of
really attractive literature and of
works of reference; the lack of time
and training on the part of the
teacher to properly direct the read reading;
ing; reading; the absence of modern library
methods in classification, catalogu cataloguing,
ing, cataloguing, keeping records and devices
that invite to the use of books; the
fact that the library is rarely a room
of its own (if so, an unheated one),
that it is never open out of school
hours, and that the books, often
poorly selected, are doled out in a
haphazard way, by a tired teacher,
at the close generally of an exhaust exhausting
ing exhausting day. Add to this, that the pupil
or student never has had the same
sense of pleasure In the more or less
required reading of the schools as
when he is allowed to "browse" and
pick and choose at will. As .Mr. Bost Bost-wick
wick Bost-wick says ("The American Public
Library"): "The two institutions:
(school and public library) should
cooperate in the freest manner.f Such
mutual aid is, of course, founded on
the fact that the educational work of
both is carried on by means of
books. That of the school is formal,
compulsory and limited; that of the
library is informal, voluntary and
practically unlimited. It is greatly
to the advantage of the scholar, and
of those informal processes of train training
ing training that are going on constantly dur during
ing during life, whether he wills it or not,
that he should form the habit of con consulting
sulting consulting and using books outside of
the school. When books are thought
of merely as school implements,
their use is naturally abandoned j
when school days are over."
Again he calls attention to an another
other another important point: "Habitual use
of a well selected library before and
during school education will reveal
aptitudes in various directions and
will encourage the student, especial especially
ly especially if he has good advisers, to control
the amount and direction of his for formal
mal formal education with vastly more
surety than otherwise."
Now the modern public library is
undertaking to do for the schools
just those things which, in the na-
ture of things, they cannot do for
Their Two Ideals
Both stand for the same practical
ideals a more rational use and en enjoyment
joyment enjoyment of life and a higher order of
citizenship. The library is the ad adjunct
junct adjunct and complement of the school.
It offers freely the tools (books)
which the school should have shown
how to use. Right reading is. un
doubtedly the surest way to right
thinking and right living. Some one
(Charles Dudley Warner, I believe)
has said that it is positively a crime
to teach a child to read and then not
direct his reading. The library grati gratifies
fies gratifies the reading habit which the
school endeavors to inspire. It has
been called by one "the great silent
school of learning," by another "tne

It has been my good fortune to
spend several weeks, during two
summer vacations, studying the
workings of the Washington county

flourishing little mountain city of

It is a pioneer and a model of its

of late in the best periodicals. One
writer has said that it is "the most

An Early Effort
To begin with, it was founiei in
1901, when county libraries were
merely being diseussei theoretically.
Its originators were: a German Re Reform

merchant. Without a pattern, and,

Msry L. Titcomb, of Massachusetts,
and to her wonderful executive abil ability,

interest of her board of trustees, is

1. It is ablolutely free to every
resident of the county.
2.. It supplies books, mounted
pictures, etc., to every school in the
county, including each grade of the
several city schools. At the time I
was there, an arrangement had prac practically
tically practically been completed by which all
the schools were to turn In their sep separate

and depend entirely upon it for their
book supplies, including profesional
literature for teachers.
3. It sends ibooks, on application
to any person in the county, by post
or express, prepaid, the borrower
paying only for the return.

Doing Honor to the Memory of
Washington, Feb. 13. While
freezing winds swept across the Po Potomac
tomac Potomac from the Virginia hills, a
bareheaded ex-Confederate officer
yesterday opened the simple exercise
that marked the breaking of ground
for the construction of the marble
memorial the nation is about to
erect to Abraham Lincoln. This the
105th anniversary of Lincoln's birth
was chosen, for the breaking of the
ground from which the $2,000,000
structure will rise as rapidly as the
contractors can jmsh the -work.
Blackburn Eulogizes Lincoln
Only a small group gathered to
witness the significant event, Jo Joseph
seph Joseph C. S. Blackburn, former sena senator
tor senator from Kentucky, was the first to
sink a spade into the ground, and!
then with uncovered head he spoke
in high praise of the memory of the
president against whom he fought a
half century ago. t
"This memorial will show that
Lincoln is now regarded as the
greatest of all Americans," said
Senator Blackburn, "and that he is
so held by the South as -well as the
North. To-day -we let the country
know that this great work has been
begun and will be carried on steadily
until dts completion."
In the Senate yesterday it was a
Southerner who made the motion to
adjourn out of respect to the memo memory
ry memory of Lincoln. The motion was
made without prearrangement 'by
Senator Overman, of North CaroWna,
following the reading of the former
president's Gettysburg address by
Senator Bradley. .''

DIXIE AND PLEASANT HOLT
The 'Star prints elsewhere a letter,
from its friend, Charlie Jones,
which, contrary to its usual custom,
it has blue penciled quite liberally.
The reason for this is two-fold.
The first is that some of Mr. Jones'
remarks might give Mr. Holt founda foundation
tion foundation for a libel suit. Mr. Holt is a
good-natured man, ibut we don't
know when the las straw is going
to be laid on his load.
The second is that some of the
matter eliminated is campaign thun-,
der for Mr. Stockton, who the Star
isn't supporting for senator.
The Star denounced Mr. Holt for
his actions, proven and alleged,
about as severely as political custom
would warrant. When Mr. Holt
sent in a very polite and plausible
explanation, it was only justice to
him and Senator Fletcher to print it.
Some very direct evidence the Star
ha3 bears out Mr. Holt's statement
that his secretary sent letters to ne negroes
groes negroes by mistake and that he isn't
connected with Senator Fletcher's
campaign. We don't think that Mr.
Holt or any other man has any bus business
iness business writing his personal or politi political
cal political letters on public stationery. We
presume 'Mr. Holt has a right to vote
for Senator Fletcher, and to try to
influence others to vote 'for .him,
tho, as we have aforesaid, we are
Klad to have him say he isn't official officially
ly officially connected with the senator's
campaign. If he had been manag managing
ing managing Senator Fletcher's campaign, the
Star would have known it, positively
and officially, by this time. As it is,
the Star has reason to believe he has
none but his personal and private
interest in it.
The Star has been very nice to Mr.
Stockton in this campaign and will
continue to 'be so. It isn't going to
print anything that will do him in injustice,
justice, injustice, not if it knows it, and there therefore

Jones and his other friends that ar arguments

overlooked until too late. Dixie's

that a responsible party is ready to
give $14,000 for the lot if the city

The city, of course, cannot put up
the needed buildings at once. It
may foe some years before it can do
so. By that time, however, th.e lot,

Editor Star: I was very much re rejoiced
joiced rejoiced to see that you published Mr.
Holt's "explanation," whereby he is
"hoist by his own petard."
Mr. Holt in his letter to the Star
says: "I am not connected with Mr.
Fletcher's campaign in any sense."
" Then pray whose campaign is Mr.
Holt connected with? He tells the
Star that he is sending out hundreds
of letters urging registration at
once and this registration is purely
for the coming primary in June.
I challenge him to explain why he
is spending so much money in send sending
ing sending out "circular letters" urging
people to "register at once," because
the only necessity for immediate reg registration
istration registration is the coming primary. If
Mr. Holt is building up a republican
machine let him frankly say so.

Free Delivery System
Last and prime distinction
books are delivered, without cost, by
the library's now famous "library
wagon, "not only to all the schools,
deposit stations and branches in the
county, but for several years past,
from house to house, and the two two-horse
horse two-horse vehicle has lately been ex
changed for a much quicker "library
automobile." This delivery wagon,
built especially to hold several cases
of books for the stations as well as
more tnan :iuu volumes n sneives,
goes on its lb successive routes two
days of each week, weather permit permitting,
ting, permitting, covering every two months, the
entire county, even to the "most dis
tant outposts." This too, remember,
over an area or about ouu square
miles and serving a rural population
of more than 50,0 00, in addition to
the 2,000 citizens of Hagerstown.
As Miss Titcomb says in one of her
interesting reports: "Xo better
method has been devised of reach reaching
ing reaching the dweller in the back country.
We all know that we might wait
long before a busy farmer would
drive fie 10 or 15 miles for a covet coveted

wagon at once estaDusnes a numan

that inquiries as to the operation of
this book wagon have come from as
far away as Japan.)
The Washington county library
has about L'u.oo volumes, with a per periodical
iodical periodical list of over SO, with a large
collection of reference works not
loaned, its circulation in lyio was
Its income is derived partly from
interest on small endowment, more
largely by annual appropriations
from both city and county. Andrew
Carnegie has recently given $25,000
to aid with its extension work.
The Working Personnel
Its force consists of the librarian,
a children s librarian, a cataloguer
and school librarian, a desXittend-
ant and the driver of the
wagon, with a salary list
$4,500. With the excepti
unique auto-delivery, the
the Hagerstown institution is rpracti
cally similar to that of othdk modern
puuiio nuraries. w
It was the first, I believeffto adopt
the county as the. library unit an
idea that is steadily growing in fa-
vor. it is now state-wide "la uali-
fornia, and has been adopted locally
in Indiana, Kentucky, iMinesotaV Ne Nebraska,
braska, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina,
Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee and Wis Wisconsin
consin Wisconsin (Bureau of Educational re report
port report 1912). In most of these states
the law provides for rural extension
work by the state, county or town township,
ship, township, and, in some cases, the city li
brary at the county sat serves as
the county. library, after the Hagers Hagerstown
town Hagerstown model.
It may be now an idle dream, but
let us have a vision of such a cen cen-tral
tral cen-tral library in every county seat in
South Carolina, the capstone of the
county's public school system and
like it supported by a special tax.
Belonging to the people, it is freely
used 'by them. Here the workers in
all the arts and professions come to
quicken and deepen their knowledge
and thereby increase their earning
capacity. Here the citizen of what whatever
ever whatever creed or condition comes to post
himself on the social and political
questions of the day. Here the
young man finds, dn good books and
attractive environment, a safeguard
against the low resort and the litera literature
ture literature that poisons. Here the weary
come for recreation, for reading that
not only met, but anticipated; and
why not let's dream too of the auto-
delivery that goes from farm-house
to farm-house and just makes one
read whether one wants to or not.
And along with it all, unconsciously,
the moral tone of the entire county
is being raised to a higher level.
It would cost a mill or two of
extra taxation, but is it not worth
it? In nearly every state of the
Union, the public library, is now
looked upon as an essential part of
the system of public education and
the people tax themeslves to support
their libraries as they do to support
In one spot at least in South Car Car-oilna,

would be well if the general assem-;y
bly would pass an act enabling any
school district In the state to follow
this lead. If the experiment of the
"merging" should eventually prove
unsatisfactory, the people would
have become accustomed to the tax tax-supported
supported tax-supported library and would never
give it up.
In our cities and ambitious towns
there is hope that the public library
will come to be regarded as a paying
business investment, just as much so
as their parks paved streets, play
grounds, water works and 'public

HESE were busy days for the
Cortlandts. They entertained
constantly, and the occasions
when they dined without
from one to a dozen guests became so
exceptional as to elicit remark around
the hotel. Most of their efforts were
devoted to certain Panamanians of the
influential class, and in company with
one or more of these Cortlandt made
frequent trips to the various quarters
of the republic, sometimes absenting
himself for days at a time.
During these intervals his wife as assumed

power on the part of the woman was a
revelation. She knew the effect she
produced and made the most of it.
Old Anibal Alfarez was perhaps the
last fully to appreciate her. He did,
however, learn in time that, while he
could successfully match his craft
against that of the husband, the wife
read him unerringly. The result was
that he broke with them openly.
When news of this reached the mem members
bers members of the canal commission they
were alarmed, and Colonel Jolson felt
it necessary to make known their
views upon the situation. Accordingly,
a few nights later the Cortlandts dined
at his handsome residence on the
heights above Culebra. After their re return

was vested the supreme authority over
his nation's interests, acknowledged
that his acquaintance with diplomacy

"But could he win? It would be a
calamity if he had American backing
and failed. It would mean disaster."
"Cortlandt has been working careful carefully,
ly, carefully, and he has been in all the seven
provinces. He admits that it might be
done, and she is certain. Of course it
will mean a fight Alfarez won't give
up easily but if Garavei should bo the
next president it would be a fine thing
for both countries."
Over at Panama the Cortlandts were
looking for a house to lease. Affairs
had reached a point where it seemed
advisable to give up their quarters at
the Tivoli and enter into closer con contact
tact contact with the life of the Spanish city.
Meanwhile they gave a ceremonious
little dinner, the one and only guest
being Andres Garavei, the banker.
Of all the charming peoples of Cen Central
tral Central America there are perhaps none
more polished and well bred than the
upper class Panamanians. Of this

The meal progressed with only the
customary small talk to enliven it, but
as soon as the three had adjourned to
the Cortlandt suit the host of the even evening
ing evening proceeded to approach the subject
in his mind as directly as the circum circumstances
stances circumstances permitted. Through a series of
natural transitions the conversation
was brought around to politics, And
Garavei was adroitly sounded. But he
displayed little interest. When at last
he consented to show his awareness of
the suggestion so constantly held out
he spoke with deliberate intention.
"General Alfarez Is my respected
friend," he said, with a quietness that
intensified his meaning, "and I rejoice
that he will be the next president of

from the speaker.

declaration was almost like that of a

her smiling at him.

am at sea. I am not a politician, you
know. I shall have no voice in our politic.-.
"Of course we know that. Senor
