Oconeo County Jail.
Practically tho same unsatisfac
tory conditions are found at Oconee
county jail this year as they wero
last year. This jail is far from what
lt should bo. Tho Sheriff (W. M. Al
exander) says ho has asked for re
pairs and equipment, but is not given
any assistance, and he doesn't know
what to do. However that may ho, he
does not. use advantageously or pro
tect that equipment which he has;
the jail runs Itself on tho Inside;
there is no "boss." Tho whites and
blacks aro allowed to run together
contrary to law; a kangaroo court
exists, which is against tho law; most
of tho bedding was found to be in a
filthy condition nnd giving off bad
odors; and two prisoners, one white
and ono negro, with venereal dis
eases wen? living with tho other pris
oners when n vacant, room was avail
able for their isolation. A number
of pr ison (>rs had no hunks or cols
and had to sleep on tho floor.
Aboul nf tien of these prisoners

gang or penitentiary. When they de
part, a good opportunity will present
Itself for the sheriff to . clean up"
tho Jail If ho will.
Tho food is fair, hut should be hei

COMMENTS ON THE SCHOOIJ DAY.
? 1 * i
Supt. Hand Makes Comparisons Ho>
tween Oity and Rural Seliools.
(Columbia Slate.)
Superintendent W. H. Hand, of tbo
Columbia city schools, in a. discus-!
sion of "The Longer School Day,"
lias tho following to say:
Ono, Aesop, tolls us of a cortain ,
fox that gravoly advised all of his
friends in convention to have their I
tails cut off because of tho alleged in-?
convettienco and danger which said
tails entailed upon their possessors.
Somewhat likewise city folk and oity
teachers aro givon to commiserating
and patronizing the rural schools.
Now the rural schools need a great
deal of attention and improvement,
but there aro rural schools and rural
schools. Many of thom have good
school houses, good teachers and rea
sonably long terms. In rural schools
of this class aro to be found somo of
the best prepared pupils in the land.
They know much from studying
books and they know much from tho
Studying of things around them, and
ono of the agencies which have con
tributed to their advancement has
been thoir school day of scnsiblo
length-not from sun to sun, but
from $.30 in the morning to 3.30 Itt
tho afternoon. In these schools tho
supervision of tho children's study
has not been ideal, but there were
sot apart regular periods for study
under tho oyo and direction of the
teacher. The children of these schools
Carry their lunches and oat them,
though not warm, at a sensible hour
in the day. Then, during the longer
recess periods, the teachers are tho
companions of the children to a de
gree rarely reached by the city teach
ers with city children.
Does Its Work Deliberately.
After all, is it not possible for our
highly organized city schools to i~arn
something from the better rural
schools? Tho rural school opens Its
daily session early, runs through Its
schedule deliberately, intersperses
recitations with study and relaxation,
provides a time for a needed lunch,
does Its school work chlofly at school
and ls through. In contrast, the city
school opens its daily session late,
runs through Its dally schedule like
an express train, almost every minute
of the teacher's time is assigned to
recitations, the teacher and her pu
pils meet only In the classroom, the
school closes early and-the children
go home to be taught by their moth
ers, because the teacher has had lit
tle or no timo to give assistance
where it wns needed and when it was
needed. The close of the school day
finds the teacher moro or less fa
tigued, she carries home with her an
armful of written exorcises, many of
which should never have been writ
ten; sho is hungry and oppressed.
Ravenously or languidly she eats af
ter her fast, then she sits down to
read and correct that armful of ex
ercises. It ls such moments thai she
fpeis thst her work herd and thal
j abo ls underpaid.
{ HOW ii lt VVltb her pupils? Ai tllO
close ot the school day they snatch
\ ap a few books, nish home as hungry
i young bears ?i gulp down their
lund, rush out to play or to the mov
ies or for a Joy ride, stay out until
darr or later, rush in to eat again,
sit down in the noise and confusion
of tho family fireside to go through
tho form of studying for a period,
then fall asleep with lessons un
learned. Day after day this routine
is gone through in tho name of edu
cation and being educated. What a
ludicrous performance! Any busi
ness enterprise or industrial plant
that would undertake to run on such
a schedule would bo in the hands of
a receiver ia short order, and Its
managers would be objects of ridi
culo.
In tho Industrial world wo h.'ivo
left behind us the twelve-hour work
day and ten-hour day, and many of
us are trying lo reduce tho eight
hour work day. All this is in the
world of machinery in which ono ma
chine does tho work of ten men, L'O
men, BO men. in tho Intellectual
world things aro a little different.
There is yet no patent process where
by a group of children may be edu
cated by al tending school a few hours
a day. five days a week, .''>(> weeks in
the year for six or seven years-tho
time at which the majority of Amer
ican children leave school, lt takes
time for the human mind lo grow and
for human charactor to be developed.
There is yet no royal road to learn
ing.
Advantages of Long School Day.
The advantages of a longer school
day with a lunch period at school
would be:
Tho teachers without neglecting
tho recitations would have more time
lo teach tho children and to direct
the children In how to study.
The teacher would be able to re
lieve herself and her pupils of-some
of the drudgery of written exercises.
Hundreds of those exercises are call
ed for simply boca uso the teacher has
no other way to reach all her pupils
in tho course of the short school day.
The children would have the ad
vantage of being drilled in their
study, and of getting tho prophr as
sistance and instructions when lt is
needed. Children need to bo taught
how to study.
The parents would bo relieved at

(The Wonderful
Tree
By Christopher G. Hazard
(?. lU22,>Wcatoru NeWBpapor Union.)
TT STOOD lu the corner bf o rather
.*? needy room. It was festooned with
strings of popcorn und cables of cran
berries. Wisps of tissue paper and
tinsel ornaments wero out upon the
branches, and small candles stood
ready to Illuminate the occasion. There
wero many Invisible things upon the
tree, too. The Imaginations of the
children had been as busy as tholr
dreams. Family resources may bo
limited, but there aro no bounds In tho
realms of Santa Claus and hope. In
the magical Christmas timo thc clouds
of poverty are all as gilded and beau
tiful as any sunset can furnish. Any
thing may happen then. Cinderella is
as hopeful as her more favored sis
ters: not an urchin but has an expect
ant eye. So tho Tanner Christmas tree
was as beautiful us a picture and as
full of presents ns a picture could ho.
But, however pictured by fancy and
made of good wishes, the presents wero
all invisible, No one could see what
was In the heads of the dreamers and
tho hearts of tho anxious but needy
providers. For weeks tho mill had
been closed, and now the family pock
etbook was about empty. Father Tan
ner looked at the tree, could not see
a gift on lt, and shook his head. Moth
er Tanner was Inclined to make the
best of lt.
Yes, the tree was one of the family.
It had been the tree of last year's
Christmas and the tree of the year be
fore that. It was a tree that kept Its
evergreen habit and (hat did not seem
to grow old. It was like a living tree,
made to bring forth Its fruit every
year. It had been so good to them that
they had named lt Bounty. And now
lt stood there In the (lark, all dressed
up, but with nothing but blossoms,
without any fruit. It could see the
hurrying children running to their
morning disappointment. It could
hear their cries of surprise and
Chagrin, Silly Sam, more needy of
amusement than the others,, would look
In vain for his expected go-enrt ; Suo
would miss the two dress patterns for
her big doll, her new hat and high
chair for her little doll; Hill Tanner
woilld not get hi? skates; Dick would
still need ? sled, it was anything hut
a j.ann y live.
lint li w ' wonderful tree, rt had
>i power ol milking Itself felt all over

ta Claus hy a kind of wireless message
that went through walls and every
thing, lt reached ns far as tho folks
who were having a Christinas evo
party two blocks away and marie them
think of Mr. Folsom's nilli boss and
Mrs. Folsom's laundry woman. They
had been wishing for some new fun
for their party that day and now lt
came Into their heads to go over and
be Santa for the Tanners. So the tree
drew a very silent but very busy com
pany to the Tunnel's' back door.
As the children bad left directions
for Santa on the table It was easy to
find out what the tree was expected to
do, so, presently, It did lt. There was
more, too, than orders for the wanted
things; thofroerrymnkcrs had brought
with them enough to satisfy any rea
sonable tree ; there were picture books,
picture puzzles, gomes, a scissors
grinder that could make the sparks
fly, a train of cars that could go, a doll
that couid say "mama," and candy
enough to go round. For Father and
Mother Tanner there was a pocketbook I
With gold In lt, and a note of good
cheer that was better than tho gold. |
So the'wonderful tree spent the rest i
of the night In trembling Joy. It could
not sleep for thinking of the friendly
love that had provided such a happy
morning to come. And when the first
of tho morning light brought nil the
Tanners downstairs tho tree fairly
Shook with pleasure, amid the wonder
and the glee of that Christmas day.
As for tho servants of Santa Claus,
they had never had such a merry
Christmas before. Their hearts were
so warm that they did not mind tho ;
frost. Thoy sang over the pleasure of
giving pleasure and relief. They said
they knew that Santa Claus lind to live
up .North so that he could cool off after
his warm Interest In the happiness of |
others. They addressed bim In verses |
that must have mudo him Jollier than ?
ever, calling him :
THE MAGIC MAN
Thorn IH a man who lives up north
AU <iad in robes ?and fur?,
And every year ho sallies forth
AH lovo his going spurs.
Ho mitigates tho winter's cold
That otherwise would freeze,
And keeps himself from growing old
Hy tending Christmas trees.
Tho children for his coining walt,
So do the old folks loo;
Unhappiness goes ont tho gat?
When Santa comes to you.
And their own presents never seemed
BO. Iorgo omi good before.

Favors Fifty Million Dollar ?sWO ot
Bonds for State Highways^
._ 4
Tho Charleston News and Courier's
report of tho State Good Roads Con
ference contained tho following sum
mary of li. D. Jennings' statemont of
Iiis views on the proposition:
L. p. Jennings, of Sumter, thought
that it would not ho wise to start with
a bond issue of less than fifty million
dollars, and that tho Statp plan
should bo such that every county
seat in South Carolina would bo con
nected with a hard surfaced system
of roads. He thought that lhere
should bo a careful survey of the en
tire State, showing just where tho
roads are to bo built, the material
from which they are to he construct
ed, and tba*, oac'i county bo paid for
work already done by lt in tho Slate
system, based on the price of tho
work at tho flotation of tho bond
issue. /
Mr. Jennings said that a hard-sur
faced system of roads would save the
peoplo untold millions of dollars In
each year, and tho issue could soon
be paid for. Me said that the auto
mobiles of tho State consume $)7.
000,000 worth of gasoline each year;
that approximately $5" 000,0.,"
paid every two years for now
and that the wear and teat
each year aggregates *10
Estimating that the gu soli
sumption would be reduced o
and that tho lifo of a cur 1
increased from two years
years, and that its wear and teni"
would ho decreased two-thirds hy n
system of bard-surfacod ro. ds, Mr,
Jennings claimed that approximnloiy
? 10,000,000 annually would bc ??veo
to tho IrtO,OOO automobile owners ii
Die Slate, estimating brich car td b?
worth an average o? ? t ,oot> and tho
repair hill on il to ho $100 annually^
Assuming, however, that hard-sur
faced roads connected only tho coun
ty seats, ho said, and that tho auto
mobile owner traveled on them only
one-third of his mileage, then the
saving would bo at least $10,000,000
a year-enough to tako np tho $50,
000,000 bond issue in six years, and
pay the interest.
