TEE MT. ZIOX SCHOOL LIBK1KT.
Mr. Editor: A few weeks ago your
paper contained a short notiae about
the library of the school. We have
thottght it would prove interesting to
your readers to know more about the
reading: that is being done by the
pupils.
In the first place, we think the thanks
of the whole community?especially
of all the school children?are due to
the twenty-five generous citizens of
the town who subscribed one dollar
each to raise a fand of twenty-five
dollar* *o as to secure that amount by
appropriation from the Mt. Zion Society.
Ia this nay funds were raised
last summer to add to the valuable
collection of books already on hand,
consisting of camplete s^ts of Dickens,
Thackeray, Scott and Warner's Works
?library of best literature together
with many older books handed down
from the old library.
In expending the money thus raised,
the committee thought it wise to purchase
such beek3 sis would readily
appeal to the children, and thus create
an interest in the library. The books
selecttd, therefore, very largely represented
.the most popular of children's
classics at the present time. And I
might say here that in no one respect
are there to be seen greater changes in
fho children of one generation as com
pare with those of another than in the
matter of their reading. So if a list
of the books were here given many of
the most popular books of the previous
generations would be omitted.
As to whether this action were wise
or not, results speak louder than words.
So far, duriag the present scholastic
year, the number of volumes raad by
the children of the school approximates
one thousand volumes. At no
time have the number of books?new
books, we mean?been equal io the
demands for them. Many times the
requests for books have been at least
donbie the supply cf those that were
at the time in the library. The number
of books taken out each week has been
about thirty-five, ani the promptness
with which they have been renewed
orretmraed from time to time Has
baen one of the aaost pleasing features
in connection with the children's
readiag. The aare of the boots also
deserves praiseworthy notice,.for tip
to this time'not a single book has been
lost, ior do the books show nearly so
mnch abuse as one might naturally
expect frost such canstaat and continued
use. No record haa been kept
of the number of the books taken out
that were reod. But we have the very
best evidenee for concluding
ss^c^-^iastesces aJ>oo&.*aslaken out
aad not read are very fewiaaeed.
On the other hand, we ka?w that in
many instances a book taken oat
by one hag been read by variaus members
of the family before being re.
'OT<\ o?io en?a TOO Tennis hn
.IUIUCUi II c at? guiv mv fi
making a perfectly #onservative estimate
were we to say that the number
of books read is fully equal to the
number takes out.
It might also be of interest to mentioa
a tew b?oks that hare proven
most popular. In the very forefront
- is to be.'placed Two Little Confed rates,
and along with it Nights with
Uncle Rtmus. The Alcott and Henty
books, Littie Lord Faantleroy, Hars
Brinker, Erie, and Childrei of the
Cold have also proven very pepnlar.
And it is a pleasure to note tbat Eobiesen
Crusoe and Tom Browa's School
Days still find a warm place with the
read ehild.
There is also another series which,
though not popular at first, has constantly
grown in favor till now the
books in it are read almost as frequently
ae any in the library. We
refer to the Abbott biographical" books,
of which the library has the lives of
Darius, Alexander, Cyrus, Hannibal,
Josephine aid Elizabeth. This is one
instance to show that there has been
an improvement in the taste for reading
that i? both instructive and entertaining.
Jrom the abore report it can readily
be seen that there is an i caper alive
duty upon the commuaity to make
further provision for the readiag of
the children. While the interest of
the pupils has not decreased ia the
SilgOtQSE, T8t It IK ukuubkibj; >ai oivi*
difficult to supply their refnesls for
books, io that many of them have
already read a greater portion of what
are now in the library. Especially is
this tree of the children of the upper
and lower grades, who even now hare
but few books especially suited to
them ai compared witb those well
adapted to the children of the intermediate
grades. To supply this need
funds mast be raited, and (hi* should
be done at an early day. We are sure
that the Mt. Zion Seciety will again
duplicate a gift of twenty-fire dollars
from public-spirited citizens. This,
however, gives ODly fifty dellars,
i though at least one hundred dollars is
' yearly needed to make tke library.
equal to its increased demands. Sup;
posing, therefore, that the fifty dollars
can be raised in the same war as last
"year, it seems to as that the additional
fifty could be raised by entertainments
from time to time, and we Might add
hero that it i? proposed by members 01
the committee to eiieavor to arrange
for raising this amount is the summer
k when ?ur college boys and girls are at
\iT~~- home.
This last mentioned tact ia regard
' v to vacadon suggests that there is a
further imperative duty upon the
community to make provision not only
for the reading: of the children at
sehool, but also tor those who are here
only during the summer' months.
Nothing could be of more value in
I keeping the^e in touch with their coll8ge\work
than a suitable list of books
and periodicals from which selections ;
coaliVbemade. It would *eem. there- '
fore, to us that the time is now ripe
for the\committee to invest at least a j
small portion of its funds in some of
the poplar magazines for a short1]
period daring the summer months.
Not only would a reading room thas
established prove of interest and profit
in a literary way, bat it woald afford
ample opportunity for bringing the
young people of tbs town into a more
constant association?a feature that is
werth every dollar that might be expended
to secure it.
Possibly there i? no better way of
seeing what progress we ourselves are
making than by comparing our efforts
with those about us. Let us therefore
see what is "Wimsboro doing as compared
with her sister town* to provide
for the better reading of her roung
and old people too. Marion, Union,
Darlington, Chester, Pelzer, Piedmont
and several other towns have within
the last three yerrs oeen proviaea wun
public libraries. ABd iD the matter
of school libraries Darlington ha3
forged ahead of every towrr in the
State in providing 3,000 volumes for
the white school aed about 5CO for the
ne^ro school. Nor has this b?ea done
at one time, bat by constant purchases
from year to year. Chester, Bock
Hill, Bamberg, Georgetown, Anderson,
and naaibers of other towns,
both large aed smaller than this town
that has an tdncational record to be
highly proud of, have far outstretched
it in the popularizing of learning
through what Carlyls calls the university
of the future?a collection of
boots.
The leBgtk of which we hare 'drawn
out th;sintended short note is only dne
to our intense interest in the reading
of others?an interest that has been
above all others with us from the time
we were tea years old when a most
valuable book was placed in oar bauds
by an interested friend with the request
to read it.

Last Saturday afternoon the members
of Curry society gave on the
lawn of Mr. ;Witherspoon's residence
an "Easter egg hunt." Ten cents gave
one the privilege of hunting, and mnch
fun was realized in "trying to find the
most eggs." The prize for finding
the ' largest number was awarded to
Miss Reaves, one of our students, who
.found altoj*etherv5thirty-8even beautifully
dyed eggs. Refreshments in the
'form of ice cream, cake, and 6herbert
were served, and many "spare dimes"
were brought forth. Quite a nice
little sum was made and no one will
deny that a great deal of fma was enjoyed.
Easter Sunday Ike girls came out
in their spring uniforms; there was an

There were special Easter services in
the Episcopal Church and they were

plaited and the attention is now
turned to cotton. Some commenced

yet. From indication* eeed will be

in trying to bite another mole
that it hs.8 been werking with for
several years. When in the plow it
also made after Willie Canthen, who
waa in the field. I also saw it try to

All farm work has been retarded
for several d&^hjL^fce-lEcreaset!. taiifall.
Farmers were progressing very
nicely with their work till the recent
rains. which will retard them greatly, .
that is, as to early planting; but the
rain is very beneficial, and where
lands were broken and ready for
bedding, will aid them even m?re than
it would if the crops had been planted
before, as they will be surer of good
stands of cotton and other seeds (hat
are planted ?n fresh plowed lands
after good seasons, enabling them also fl
to destroy a large amount -of grass j
seeds. Gardens, though backward;
are progressing very well.

The eause they hare espoused is a
noble one worthy of applause, though,

meet the entire approval of all.
