To tho Public School Teachers and Pupils
of Oconeo County.
Tho Youth's Companion, through its
editor, Mr. J. L\ Upham, hus oft'orod to
tho public schools of Oconeo county four
beautiful engravings and a handsome
national Hag as a prize to tho school
which, during tho coming year, will add
tho greatest number of improvements,
consisting of tree planting, Mower beds,
painting, or anything that p?rtalas to
tho beauty or tho comfort of school
grounds and buildings. This contest
will bo decided on "Arbor Day" of next
Tho Youth's Companion has an "Arbor
Day" roll of . honor on which aro in
scribed tho names of the teacher and
pupils who carry out tho work. For
sonio years the Youth's Companion has
been engaged in bettering the condition
of country schools in tho North. Last
April tho editors of this paper formed a
combination with the Seaboard Railroad
and have been working in the South
sinco that time. What is given to the
schools lu tho territory touched by the
Seaboard is now obtained for Oconeo
county, lt is hoped that the teachers
and pupils will take up this work which
has for its motive the training of heart,
brain and hand, without which no educa
tion bl this day and generation it com
In a talk with Mr. Upham, wbilo in
.Jacksonville, Fla., last week, ho said:
"Tho Improvement of the country school
is one that is ever before the Youth's
Companion. Nothing is moro depressing
than to drive in the country disti iets and
see a spot barren of all beauty ; a school
building drear? and comfortless, dilapi
dated by neglect. A little care on the
part of teachers and pupils could easily
change this. Tims we formed tho plan
of o nor big theso prizes, hoping thereby
to arouse the desire on the part of the
school children to stand at the head in
this work whose illlbtoiico is far reaching
and carries with it its ow n lesson."
1 trust that the schools in our county
will take up this work. All teachers in
the county who fool interested on the
subject and who desire further informa
tion are requested to write me at an
early date and I will take pleasure in
giving further information.
The Legislature of our State has inau
gurated au "Arboi Day." Let this day,
which is now near at hand, be the com
mencement of this good work, which
shall mark an era in the school life of

Mrs. Coleman, of Seneca, S. C., was

?lusively to women that it comes a little
awkward for me to say 'Ladies and
Gontlomon.' The t wo subjects on which
my remarks will be based aro tho travel

this gigantic philanthropy is largely duo
to tlie women of the Seaboard. Tho
women of this generation are essaying to
now avenues of usefulness, and are
dubbed the new woman. 1 heartily dis
like the term, and would change it to tho
'progressive woman.' " Mrs. Coleman
then devotod her remarks to tho work
that is being done by tho woman of to
day, as compared with tho work of her
sister of an earlier generation.
