Too Many Little Half-Supported
Schools.-Sooner or later our people
are going to have more comfortable
and commodious school houses. Be
fore the people pat their money into
permanent improvements, would it
not be. wise to reduce the number ot'
schools in a great many places? A
good four-room house costs less than
four one-room, huoses of equal com
fort and convenience. Sixty pupils
in one building can be better taught
and mpre easily taught than fifteen
pupils each in four: buildings. A
four-teacher school wi H flourish
where four one-teacher schools would
struggle to keep alive.
In more than half the counties in
the State are to be found dozens of
?ohools with 10 and 12 pupils each.
Not many weeks ago I visted a ruial
school with an enrollment of ll pu
pils; three * miles off was another
school with 13 pupils, and in another
direction was a third school with 14
pupils. The three teachers were paid
$35 each; each school house was cheap
and ill equipped- In some districts
six miles square are to be found 8S
many as three white schools, each
with a small number of pupils scar
-tered from first reader to -high school
grades. A good many of the incor
porated villages hav? school districts
oo-extensive with the incorporate lim
its. An accurate school district map
"df the ' State would look very much
like a crazy quilt.
What is the remedy? ? Take the
three schools cited above. Build a
comfortable two-room house at a cen
tral point, and give the entire 33
pupils to two teachers. Each pupil
would then have his recitatiqn time
doubled, for there would be in the
consolidated school more grades, or
classes, than there were in the most
advanced of the three little schools. I
am at once reminded that some of
these children would have too far to
walk. (It is marvelous how much
trouble' a father who walked four
miles to school and . brags about,
makes over his child's walking oae
mile.) I grant that the consolidation
puts the school too far for some tu
walk. What then? Take part of the
money to transport these to the
school. Prof. W. K. Tate of the
Meminger Normal school, says, "It
is better and cheaper to transport the
distant children to the good school
than to bring a poor school to the
distanct children. '.* Yes, one good
school is immeasurably ?better than
three inferior schools.
The transportation of distant pu
pils is no new fad. Several years
ago the Eastover district in Rich
land county.threw five schools into
Sne. The district runs four wagon
ttes, made ?orjU^e purpose, to haul
the distant jsi&dren. Another in
stance: Three"1 ravining districts in
Fairfield count}*, with a combined en
rollment of 60 pupils, have consoli
dated their schools at Bethel, have
erected a $2,600 school house and are
transporting all-the children who live
too far to walk. This consolidation
gives the school enough pupils to es
tablish a rural high school, with $300
of State aid.
? State Superintendents McMahan
and Martain have zealously advocat
ed the consolidation of small schools.
Such a policy would encourage the
building of better roads, while the
transportation itself would protect
the children in bad weather,, and
would protect the small children and
the girls from insults or violence at
the hands of tramps: or thugs en the
lonely country roads.
Neighborhood Jealousies and Quar
rels.-These twin evils have done
-more to prevent and to destroy the
efficiency of the common schools than
any other two agencies in the land. It
is difficult enough to maintain a good
school - where everybody works in
harmony, and it is well nigh impossi
ble where strife and division are. To
listen to-the petty contention, the
sharp bickerings and the tales of dis
cord in some communities makes one
marvel that a school can exist in such
a place. The petitions and the ap
peals which come before the various
school boards are enough to make one
turn pessimist. The worst of it all is
that most of these contentions and
bickerings are childish and groundless
and that they are usually begun and
kept alive by men who have at heart
but little interest in. ?nv school. Li
settling most of these disputes, Sol
omon's judgmen between the two wo
men claiming the child would be
It is to these jealousies and quarre's
that we owe two, three and even four
little starving schools where but one
ought-to be. To them we owe the
little district unable to support a
school. Every influential local cele
brity wished to have a school house
at his front door or in his backyard.
To these jealousies we owe most of
the defeated local tax elections.
Nearly all the local disputes over the
teacher have their origin in neigh
borhood jealousies, and the baneful
habit of constant change of teachers
has its roots embedded here.
A certain district school is support
ed by ten families. All is well, but
the school house stands on the south
side of a little creek which about
once a year reaches a depth of four
feet. A and B suddenly conclude
that this innocent stream is a men
ace to the lives of their children, and
oetition for a new district. The next
session finds a little 20 by 20 foot
hull of a school house on the north
side of that creek, and a little life
less school on each side of it. Or,
Cs bad boy is punished by the teach
er; straightway ? raises the flag of
secession, and proceeds to have his
own little d-e-e-:strice cut off. Or,
one of the local economists gets tired
of paying a teacher $40 a "month,
since his daughter would teach for
$30; the trustees will not yield to
the economist; then the economist
canvasses the district in thc interest
of a new set of trustees, vrith the
economist as chairman. Or, J} and
E are rival physicians already at
odds; D says that Smith's boy has
a contagious disease, and must be
stopped from the school; E declares
that the disease is only infectious,
and that it would be silly to stop
Smith's boy; the quarrel rages, the
partisans array themselves, and down
goes the local school tax proposed
by the only really- interested patron
of the school. Or, X begins to dis
cuss a new school house; Y says that
the old one is good enough, an<j that
X is trying to lead the district; no
new house is built, and the old one
gradually rots down. Or, Miss
Brown, the teacher, hoards with the
Smiths; the Joneses feel neglected,
and begin to whisper it about that
the teacher cannot solve Sallie Jones'
problems or parse Sallie's sentences;
the Smiths retaliate by asserting that
the teacher is able to teach the whole
Jones family: result-the anti-Smith
faction's children are taught next
session by Miss Sallie Jones herself.
Once more, Mr. Brown, with much
religious devotion to his correll
creed, demands thats the new teach
er shall be an X-ist; Perkins Y-ism
at onee begins to ferment while
Stubbs declares that Z-ianism has
been outraged, since there has not
been a X-ian teacher in thc school
in five years. When thc new teach
er comes, is he to teach X-ist doc
trine, Y-ist doctrine, Z-ian doctrine,
or should he be a simple God-fearing
man whose daily life will be a re
buke to these clamorous Pharisees?

BANKERS OPPOSE IT
Object to Both Guaranty and
Postal Savings Banks
MEETING OF MANY FINANCIERS
By an Overwhelming Majority the
Trust Company Section of the
American Bankers' Association
Pass Resolution, Introduced by Col.
F. H. Fries, of Winston-Salera,
Against the Guarantee of Bank De
Denver, Col., Special.-The" trust
jompany section of the American
Bankers' Association went on record
in opposition to the bank deposit
guarantee proposition, making the
third subsidiary association of the
American bankers to declare itself
thus. A motion to vote on postal
savings banks was defeated. All the
speeches made were against the pos
tal savings bank plan.
The resolution against the guaran
tee of bank deposits was offered by
Co!. F. H. Fries, of Winston-Saler?,
N". C., who acted for the legislative
?ommittee. This introduction of the
resolution precipitated a debate, led
by Breckenridge Jones, of St. Louis,
in the negative, as to whether the sec
tion had a constitutional right to con
sider any p. ^position not of exclusive
interest to trust companies. The res
olution was carried 74 to 5.
In the election of officers A. Jack
son, of Philadelphia, was chosen
president. Col. F. H. Fries was elect
ed one of the new members of the
?xecutive committee. ' w
Among a dozen called on for re
marks was Carl Williams, of New
Fork, formerly president of the trust
company section. He said that 20
per cent, of the banking power of the
United States was in New York and
that it was unanimously against the
guarantee of bank deposits.
Col. F. H. Fries, president of the
Wachovia Loan and Trust Company,
of Winston-Salem, N. C., spoke be
fore the trust company section of the
American Bankers' Association on
;<Radicalism and Conservatism in Fi
nancial Measures and Legislation."
He devoted a considerable part of
his address to the proposition of a
postal savings bank and the present
much-discussed principle of guaran
ty of bank deposits. He said in part:
"Grave dangers are looming upon
our horizon, evidences of an ap
proaching storm that may be quite
beyond our control. The gravity of
these dangers lies in the fact thal an
unenlightened public is largely in
fluenced, if not controlled, by active
and energetic politicians, who them
selves are either deceived or who
are seeking their own advantage re
?ardlss of the consequence.
"The gravest ?anger lies in the
present tendency to put the govern
ment in the banking business for the
supposed good of the people. For the
want of a better name we designate
it 'radicalism', meaning thereby the i
embodiment of the radical ideas con- '
eerning financial matters that have ?
been advanced by politicians and

Take a look at the wheat field that

sheen of the sea, billowing from sky
line to sky-line like an ocean of gold,
where the wind touches the rippling
?.ave crests with, the tread of invisi
ble feet. In California, in Oregon,
in Washington, in Dakota, in the Ca

day on horseback through the wheat
fields without a break in the flow ot'
yellow heavy-headed grain. No fence
lines. No meadow lands. No shads
trees. No knobs and knolls and hills
und hollows of grass or black earth
through. From dawn till dark, from
sunrise in a burst of fiery splendor
over the prairie horizon to sundown
when the crimson thing hangs like a
huge shield of blood in the haze of
a heat twilight-you may ride with
naught to break the view between you
and the horizon but wheat-wheat.
it is like the gold fields. It goes to
your head. You grow dizzy looking
at it. You rub your eyes. Is it a
mirage? Billowing yellow waves
seem to bc breasting the very sky.
Y"ou look up. The sky is there all
right with the black mote of a mead
ow lark sailing the azure sea. He
drops liquid notes of sheer mellow
music down on your head, does that
meadow lark and that gives you back
vour perspective, your sense of amaz
ing reality. You are literally, ab
solutely, really, in the midst of a
sea of living gold. It is yon "nd not
Mie lark that is the mote. You begin
to feel as if your special mote might
be a beam that would get lost in in
finity if you staid there long; and
?o you ride on-and on-and some
more on-and by and bye come out of
the league-long, fenceless fields with
an odor in your nostrils that isn't
