Wednesday. The patrons, the child

day on Indian creek. The men caught a
a number of nice fish which were pre- d

The trustees of the school at Crom
ers have furnished the school wit
new desks, much to the delight of
teacher and pupils. Every effort
should be made to have the school
room comfortable, for "much study
is a weariness to the flesh." In the
quiet, peaceful country. with its pure c
air, surrounded by nature and away e
from temptation. is a good place for f
the youth to grow in body, mind, and
soul. Ours is a day of education.
People in the country should awaken
and send their children to school reg- t
ularly, for since education means ti
growth it is a slow process. Let's do
what we can for the children. They
must hold the reins of government
when we have passed the river. C

State Board to Grant Hearing to All t

Columbia, April 13.-The state ~
board of dispensary directors has de
cided to grant a hearing to all parties"
interested in the test case as to the '
legality of beer dispensaries. Some
months ago it was published that the t
legality of the board's action in grant- 2
ing beer permits would be tested in the
courts. Since then, however, it has t'
been decided to bring the matter upi
before the board first. The whole
question hinges on what constitutes
"premises." It is held by some that
a dispensary, simply having an ad
joining room for drinking purposes,
is a violation o the lak. This is taken
on the ground that the adjoining
room is on the premises.
The hearing will take place on April
