Theme* U* McLeod, said that the State House flag w:rohf be lowered to half mast today out of respect for the late secretary of state.  “Evan though Mr. Dove's death did not come so unexpectedly," the gov c rnor said, "it is with deep regret that I learn of bu passing. He was an efficient, painstaking officer, and alway* cooperated with the other offi cera in matters of state. He was always prompt in the performance of his duty and made every effort to lend assistance both to his state and to his fellow man."  Born in Fairfield.  The late secretary was born at Halcsllville, Fairfeld county, February 28, 1889, the son of Richmond Calvin and Nancy Elisabeth Dove, both of whom were of Srotch-Irish anceatry. He was the oldest of six children. He was graduated from Catawba college with an A. B. Degree in 1896, and received the degree of M. A. from the same institution 20 years later. He married Miss Carrie E. Rowe at Newton, N. C., June 26, 1896.  Mr. Dove was a well knokn figure in educational work in South Carolina before Im entered the political field. He taught his first schol in a piny woods district bf Kershaw county, and earned rn that way the greater part of the money a"v^gP»ieh he acquired hts higher continued to teach and attirail Behoot alternately, and as a teacher was connie :ed with country schools, colleges and city schools, being at times .super-ntendent of school at Reidville, Lex-ngton and Gfoenvill . He orgaiftzed the Association of City School Super-*>tender; s at the summer school of the South, Knoxville. Term., and was elected president of the association.  The work that probably afforded Mr. Dove more gratification than any tother of his life wa* the opportunity afforded him after he left the schoolroom to assist many worthy boys and girls in the mill section of Columbia 'to secure an education.  ! Mr. Dove finished his own college education long after he had attained manhood.  Assistant Secretary First. ll*- was a lifelong, active Democrat but never held a really political posi-  II en until he was appointed assistant i sec re tary of state in 1908 by Secretary R. M. MeCown. In 1916 he was elected to the office of secretary of state and after that time was rg-clacted for three other terms.
