fact that we have a State Normal School

teachers of the State and through them to

An idea of the advan'ages which would
follow from these county normal schools
can be gathered from thle foregoing para ~
of the advantages that would r esult to theit
teachers of our own county: 1t is a faict
that not only Pickens County, but necarly
every county in the State are deficient in
good school teachers. They are deficient in
many respects. Many of' them are young
men and young ladies who are just assum
ing the responsibilities and duties of
teaching. They are at a loss how to select.

In our opinion such an organization would
result in equally as much 'goed to Pickens

anxious about.. The Railroad will open up
