ject and the workinz of such a sy
tern in other states. we wrote letters
to all of the 1-overnors in the Inited m11a
States, requesting a copy of laws To,
pertaining to rural police in their
states. To our surprise we learned
t.hat there is no system of rural po-i
lice in any state in the union. In sta
Geor,-ia a member of the legislature '
had a hill providing for a patrol sys
temI, which was the nearest to a system Eli
of rural police of any state so far as
tile infornmation we obtained in reply p
to our letters. WVe are glad to see
the grand jury of R.iehland recon- the
mendins, somethin,g of tile kind, andpri
we hope to get our bill in such shape
ut, the next session that we may le rr
able to get some legilation along
this line. CaI
There is a system of rural mount- bri
ed police in the county of Charleston, C
und we are informed by Sheriff Mar- -Ri(
tin that iU works remarkably well in tf
that. county. ma
Our idea was to have the rural po- 1
lice in every county and so organiz- tle
ed that in the event the assistunee of uri
a police from one counity should be de
needed for another, it could be ob- tre
Iained promlptly and. without delay. a
There is no doubt in our mind that
such a system is needed, and while fol
we could not have a suffleient iumnber
to cover the county thoroughly, yet
the very fact that there was a (
mounted police in each county antd th
no one knowing .jst what part of do
the county t lie police would be at
ani1y ole tnime, would act as a re
straint -to tile violation of law. Suehl
a Kystm could111( take the place of' the-t
const ables speci ally appo~ inted( to
look a fteor thle en forcenmnt of thle
Jaw against the illicit sale oif whuis
'key, and while -they could lie espee
ially charged with this dluty, they
cou-ld also have greneral supervision
of the cnforcemnent of all laws, and
as our bill provides that they shall
be under the direction of the sheriff.
we believe t'hey could be used to very
great advantare for the protection of
those of our citizens who live in thme
rur'al cornmunities. a
*There will be :.' state -utr.mer ol

'better for the teachers to take th.e
time and moniey it would take for thie S2
purpose and spend a week at the

Edgefield, who is a graduate of Win- t
1Wrop. Filom i(I le -many ,words of C
commliendation I heard she seems to t
have given geneal satisfaction. We V
hope she may he induced to continue
her work in this place. Our rural
schools need just such teachers. The
pitv is supcient remunnation is not al
ways available for first class teach- C
ers. If only our country folks could
fully realize that a first class, high
gade teacher is worthy of a good
salary, a poor teacher is dear at any
price. Botiter teachers, better pay;
and conversely better pay will se
cre hetter teachers. Time..consum

I was glad to note the. incre4sed

way to overcome t.he labor shortage.
