State Senator J, R. Earle of
Oconee couty, Superintendent
of Education PL. T. Hallum
The home speakers devoted
their time in exhorting better
schools for Pickens county,
tirgiig the necessity of school
raining for boys and girls in
this day and time. Mr. Maul
din incidently "took a shot" at
(lemson College, (leclaring that
that it was "run on the wrong
principle. while commending
Winthrop as "the greatest
school in the state."
Mr. Boney, in a talk of forty
minmutes, prsented the matter of
co,,-m1pulsory education, declaring
it the only method of securing
ahything like a satisfactory at
tendance at school. One point
made by Mr. Boney was that
the political revolution of the
90's led by ('apt. B. R. Tilmian,
gave power to the ballot of the
poorest. most ignorant. voter in
the State without also giving
him the proper qualifications for
using that ballot intelligently.

Children's Day at Mile Creek.
I Last Sunday Children's day
'was observed at Mile Creek
church and a very interesting
program was carried out.
The exercises began at 10
o'clock a. m. with a song and
prayer, after which the pastor,
Rev. J. E. Foster, made a wel
come address which made all
feel good and at home.
Then came a song, responsive
bible reading, essays and reci
tations by boys and girls.
A Yery interesting paper on
State missions and the life and
work of Dr. T. M. Bailey, the
veteran secretary of the Mission
Board was read. The rendering
of the program consumed all of
the morning hoar except an ad
dress by Mr. C. E. Robinson.
Mr. McDuffie Bolding had
charge of the music and it was

The occasion wa- State Mis

highly entertained and enjoyed
greatly the exercises. After the
dinner hour the people again
assembled in the house and un

the atmosphere the melodies of
praise rent the air.
Altogether it was ono of the
most delighful and happy oc
cosious at Mile Creek in many
days, and deserves the coimen
dation of its people. Much of
the success of the day is due to
the untiring efforts of Mrs.
