i settlers found lu this territory, j
! au Indian tribe named Arkansas, .
j but the actual meaning of lb? J
! word IK not known. It probably \
j has some relation to the word ?
4 Kansas. There has been much t
\ confusion as to the correct pro- ?
nunclntlon of Arkansas, To re- T
move this as far as possible a **
resolution was passed hy tho t
slate senate In 1881 which sped- ?
tied that the true pronunciation ?
was "Ar-kan-suw." J
Originally Arkansas was a j
part of the Loulsiuna Purchase, t
Its Hist settlement was made by f
the French about 1086. Except j
for the few years during which I
by secret treaty lt was ceded to j
Spain, lt remained under French I
rule, until purchased by the Uni- J
ted States lu 1803, For nearly .
ten years after this, lt was a T
part of Louisiana territory. .With |
the admission of thc State of ?
Louisiana In 1812 this northern
section was formed into the Mis
souri territory. In 1811) there
was another partition and Ar
knnsus territory was creatod,
which included tho present slate
and what later was called Iudhin
Due io tho roports of an early
explorer named Pike, who visited
this region In 1800, the Incor
rect Iden was generally uccopted
that most of tho expanse of
plains east of the Rockies was
a vast desert. This ldeu per
sisted to such an extent that as
late as 1850 the western plains
were culled In tho school geog
1rn ph les "Tho Croat American
Desert." Adventurous settlers,
t especially from tho South, found
j conditions In Arkansas quite otb
J erwlse, however, and by 1838
j Arkansas was admitted as tho

An interesting littlo program was
givon In tho school building, tho oro
grani combining both prolit and
pleasure. Selections in reading were
given hy first und second grado pu

over the exercises. Miss Colonial!
had taught them several songs, loo.
which they sang for UH.
lt is wonderful how much progress

in so short a time. A first grade man
learned to read Bible stories, writo

Miss Coleman deserves much credit
for her earnest and patient edon iii
teaching this school.
After the program by the school
Mrs. S. L. Harriss entertained the au
dience with a r?citai ion, "Poor House
Nan."* Then we had a snort talk by
.1.11. Brown, commending the lay-by
schools, etc., both of which were
greatly enjoyed by all.
lee cream was servedby the com
munity, which proved a great fou
lure of the evening to the school and
audience as well.
Clemson invited these lay-by
schools from Anderson, Oconec and
Picketts to hold their commencement
exercises a: Hie college, so on Satur
day about half of tho pupils from the
South I nion school wont over and
listened to many of Cue pupils from
ot bei- schools. ! think they enjoyed
the day. for many of them bad nevev
been to Clemson before. Therefore
Hie herd of cows, Uno hogs, pretlj
buildings, the green campus, beauti
ful Howers were a sight for them.
Miss WU Lou Cray, of Columbia,
was present and endeavored, in a
happy, cheerful way, to make the day
a success. She seemed to be satisfied
with the reports of the different
schools which were represented.
Miss Coleman and sister stopped
over in Seneca with Mrs. Leslie ?trlb
ling for the week-end.
We were disappointed because our
Superintendent of Education did not
attend the commencement of the
adult schools at Clemson. Perhaps,
had he been lhere, Oconoe would
have had a better showing. We pre
sume, however, that lils official duties
prevented his attendance.
