his is a very genitrons offer on the
art of these progressive gentlemen
ad President Hurt will endeavor to
are the drag used. This drag. to
et the most efficient work from it,
iould be used on the roads after a
It would seem that the farmers who
ve aloii these roads would be will
ig to use. these drags for their own
enefit. as it would take but little
me. and that could be given whe
was too wet to work on the farms.
Some time ago Mr. Henry L. Parr
greed to use one of these drags on
ie road from his place to Newberry
the supervisor would furnish the
rag. Inquiry from the supervisor
rings the information that he. has
otified Mr. Parr that the drag was
t his disposal, in fact notified him on
aturday again that he could get this
rag, andgthis is a most excellent
me at which to use it. This road
as recently been worked by the chain
ang and the use of the drag on it
ow would make it a first-class road,
nd it is hoped that Mr. Parr will
arry out his part of the agreement
nd have this road dragged at once.
If a few of these drags can be put
ito service on the roads leading to
ewberry, it will give citizens from
11 sections of the county an oppor
inity to see the advantages of their
se and the inexpensiveness of them
nd no doubt other communities will
se the drags.

personal reasons for tendering her

Rev. !. LeVister. ho has been prin
cipal of the Hoge colered school for
the past two or three years, sent in:
his resignation, which was accepted.
He has made a very aceptable prin
cipal of the colored school.
The following letter from him gives
his reason for asking the board to
accept his resignation:
Newberry, S. C., August 2, 1910.
To the Board of Trustees for City
Schools, Mr. W. A. McSwain, Sec
retary, Newberry, S. C.
Gentlemen: Some months ago I re
signed the pastorate of the Bethlehem
Baptist church that I might give my
self wholly to the work in the Hoge
school. At that time I had no thought
of severing my relations from that
school within a short time. Since
that time, and very lately, another
field of service has opened up for me.
I have been appointed to the position
in the department of mathematics in
our State school, Orangeburg, S. C.
It seems the part of good judgment
for me to accept. I beg you to con
sider, therefore, this communication
as my resignation from the position
of principal of the Hoge school, with
which you have honored me for these
years, to enter th.e work in Orange
burg. . ji..
I wish to thank you greatly for. all
you hale been. to our school and to
me. That the school' has made sub
stantial progress is beyond honest
questioning. This progress does not
belong solely to the principal of the
school. It belongs to you aufi to the
superintendent. There was scarcely
one week to pass by that Prof.
Stuckey did not in person visit the.
school. You yours'elves have person
ally visited the school. You have seen!
its needs, and you have set about to
meet those needs In a nianner that
the colored people must appreciate.
You have improved the building, you
have Increased the salary of the
teachers, besides granting us an, ad
ditional teacher; you have added
something to the salary of the prin
cipal of the school each year. The
wise counsel of the superintendent
and your cooperation have made- the
school what it is. We justly thank you
fcr all you*~ have been to the school.
