THE BOND ISSUE.
The proposed issue of one hundred
thousand dollars worth of bonds for
the building and equipping of a new
school building in Winnsboro has
fallen through. Under the law the
Board of Trustees were forbidden to
sell for les: .han par, and only nine
ty-two was bid. Bonds of all kinds
paying a higher rate of interest than
the board in this instance was legally
able to offer-6 per cent.-are being
everywhere offered, and they, of
course, fix the price.
The Board of Trustees alone cannot
proceed further at this time. The
law is plain, and they are bound by
its terms. But what of the people
of Winnsboro? How much do they
wish a new building ? Are they will
ing for th'eir children to continue to
use the worn out structure they now
occupy ? And the equipment that
went out of date years and years
ago? It is not too much to say that
the present building at Mt. Zion is
a menace to the health of every child
that goes to school. Nothing about
it is right. The heating is ridicu
lously inadequate; the water supply
and toilet facilities are absurd; the
lighting violates every principle
evolved by science during the last
twenty years; the equipment, desks,
etc., were obsolete long before the
fathers and mothers of the pupils of
today ceased to be graded school pu
pils; and the building itself is liter
ally falling to pieces. How many of
the patrons' of Mt. Zion realize the
conditions under which their children
attend school, and why the ignorance
of those who do not know? The
school building is a public institu..
tion for the benefit of all the chiL
dren who attend it. Is it not the d]u.
ty of the parents of the children to I
know the conditions? Do the people
of Winnsboro perform that dluty ?
If they do not, they ought to. Unless

Well, what are the people of
Winnsboro going to do about it ?
They can, if they want one bad
enough, have a proper building. Do
they- want it? A matter of eight
thousand dollars stands in the way.
Hard times? We are still buying
automobiles. We are still indulging
in a thousand luxuries. Winnsboro
could raise the eight thousand dol
lars which would enable the Board
to get par for the bonds--or, for
that matter. Winnsboro could buy
the issue outright at par. It is not a
question of can, ;t is purely a ques
tion of will. "Watchman, what of the
night?" Will the people of Winnsboro
give their boys more auto
mobiles and their girls more silk
stockings and dresses, Or will they
provide a suitable school building,
and see that it is properly and ade-1
quately equipped ? The bond issue
has not, properly speaking, failed,
and if the people will "screw their
courage to the sticking point" it]
will not fail. The children belong to
the people, the future belongs to the
children. Hence, the people shape
the future through the children.
What shape will the future, a price-..

of the potter shake ?
Shall we have a new building? The
people can answer this question eith
