AULL LIBRARY ACT.
302 School Libraries Established Un
der its Provisions.
According to the reports sent in
by the various county superintendents
of education to the state superinten
dent of education, 302 school libraries
have been established under the pro
visions of the Aull library act, passed
by the recent legislature. State Su
perintendent Martin thinks that this
is doing very well indeed, inasmuch
as the law has been in operation but
four months and many of the schools
closed soon after the money became
available. He says that this work will
receive renewed interest and effort
when the schools open again in the
It will be noticed that the counties
of Darlington, Edgefield, Fairfield,
Florence, Greenwood. Marlboro, Rich
land, Spartanburg and York have the
full twelve allowed under the provis
ions of the act. and several of the
others will soon reach the limit for
this year. Several county superin
tendents reported that they could
raise more than twelve. Superinten
dent Elmore, of Spartanburg, says
that he thinks that his county would
raise fifty by the close of the year if
the same conditions should apply to
all over twelve. For Richland twen
tv-three libraries have been establish
ed, the trustees having advanced the
money for the extra ones. A prom
inent citizen of Darlington county
donated enough money to help the
twelve most needy schools in that
county, and that will make twenty
four for Darlington.
The establishment of the small li
braries has given an impetus to the
r;ovment for improved school li
braries and better equipment. The
state superintendent hopes that the
library law will be continued with its
provisions enlarged and extended, and
he believes also that it will lead to
son-e legislation for better houses and

of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and

various medicines without obtaining
any permanent relief. Last summer
one of my children was taken with
cholera morbus, and I procured a
bottle of this remedy. Only two doses
were required to give her entire re
