RURAL SCHOOL LIBRARIES.
So Far Only Four Schools In Newberry
County Have Raised Necessary Amount
to Secure Libraries.
()nv four schools in Newberrv
county have so far raised the neces
sary amount of Slo to tak<e advan
tage of the liberal terms of the Act
.passed b the recent legislature to
encourage the establishment of ru
ral school libraries. The Act has
been printed and referred to a num
ber of times and its terms are very
Superintendent of Education E.
S. Verts is verv anxious that
twelve schools in .ewberry should
take advantage ofthe Act at a very
early date. It will be remembered
that only twelve schools in each
county may secure libraries in any
one year. Superintendent Werts
has addressed the following letter
to the various teachers of the
schools in the county which are un
der the General School Act:
"I desire to call to your atten
tion the Act passed by the last
legislature to encourage the estab
Fshment of libraries in the rural
school districts of the various coun
ties of the state. The law provides
that when the patrons or friends of
a school. with the consent of the
board of trustees., have raised the
amount of Sto for the establishment
of a library, that school shall he
entitled to $io of the county funds
belonging to the district in which
it is located and to an additional $io
to be appropriated by the state. The
law also provides that only twelve
schools in each county may re
ceive the benefits. of the measure in
any one year.
%.I desire to urge upon the teach
ers of Newberry county the impor
tance of twelve schools in Newber
ry county taking advantage of this
law at as early date as possible. In
many of the counties of the state
twelve schools have already raised
the $10 required of them, and
should not lag behind in a matter
of such far'reaching importance
as providing suitable reading mat
ter for the children of the public
schools when libraries' may be se
cured under such advantageous
"I very much hope to have appli

in this county during the next few

A Sudden Departure.
Solomon. the tailor, left New
berry on Wednesday morning and
the manner of his leaVetaking was
not as he had planned. Solomon
went to the depot to catch the early
train Wednesday morning going
towards Columbia. He bought a,l
ticket to Columbia. Before the
train pulled in, however. he wasl
taken into custody by two members!
of the police force on the charge
of cursing W-Vill Ruff. ' Solomon!
was released oi $io bond after be
ing taken to council chamber anZd
then went back to the depot. It
sems. however. that he had other
than the law with which to make
seitlement. It appears from alli
that can be gathered that he had
talked too much. too much. to state
the matter plainly. When he learn
ed that he would be taken to ac
count by parties against whom he!
had made damaging statements he
didn't wait for the train. The
thought of waiting for the train
doesn't seem to have entered his'
mind even in the remotest way.
What he did with his ticket is noAj
known. In fact, it is not known
what he did with himself, but it
is supposed that he went to Pro.
