NRWHV, S. C., Soptombor 11.--Agnin
your scribe comes before you to ask that
you allow him spaco in your most worthy
paper to toll your many readers some
thing about what is going on in and
about our oi derly mill village, situated
on Kittie river, near its cou il nonce with
tho beautiful and limpid Keowce, nest

Courtenay, formerly of Charleston, S. C.
So it follows that tho Courtenay Manu
facturing Company, with its liberal and
broad-minded president, could not fail
to look after thc educational interests of
the placo. Therefore tho mill school at
Newry reopened for its niuo months'
term last week in tho commodious new
school house, built by tho Courtenay
Manufacturing Company, and supplied
with substantial hardwood furniture.
Tho upper story, for tho largor children,
has blackboards attached to all tho walls
in the room so that scholars have plenty
of spneo for their exorcises. In this
room is a grand panel, seven foot long
and two and one-half feet wide, a gift to
tho school, displaying beautiful life
sized engraved portraits of throe dis
tinguished Americans-George Washing
ton, Ii. K. Lee and Wade Hampton-who
imperilled their lives for tho sacred
cause of civil liberty and tho right of
self-government. Other national por
traits aro to ho added from time to time,
so that tho rising generation may learn
tho true history of their country.
Tho lower room is for tho smaller chil
dren. The blackboards are set in low,
movable frames so that the juveniles can
roach them readily. The kindergarten
methods aro to he adopted, and in every
way tho children will bo advanced.
Miss Loda liowcn, of Piokons. is prin
cipal, and Miss Leona G rico, of Pendle

of tho expenses. Tho publie school
