The Laurens Advertiser Presents an
Account Interesting to New
A little statement presented to the
patrons by Supt. B. L. Jones of the
Laurens city schools, entitled "Pic
tupe Fund Account," tells an inter
esting story of what can be accom
plished with a certain amount, (very
large) of intelligent effort and per
severance. This little statement tells
in a nutshell the story of how the
graded school building has been dec
orated and adorned with pictures and
sculpture more extensively and with
more taste than possibly any other
school in the State and possibly any
other school of the same size any
where. Mr. Jones has worked with un
abated perseverance whenever the op
portunity offered during the past year
and, as the statement shows, his work
has not been in vain. The balance
sheet shows that a total profit of
$701.59 was made from the lyceum
course, concerts, art exhibits and in
other Ways during the past year. To
be more exact, $1,226.08 was the gross
amount taken in, and $524.49 expend
ed. making the profit above stated.
Out of this fund Mr. Jones has sup
plied the school with $67.05 worth of
books, class room pictures worth over
$71, -has planted trees on the grounds
at an expense of nearly $17, has
bought pictures for the auditorium to
the amount of $281.13 and adorned
the walls of the auditorium with
friezes of great value and at a cost
of $208. While this estimation is a
money valuation only, the actual
value to the- school as specimens or
art and as a source of study can not
The school building ,as it now is.
should be a source of much pride to
the people of Laurens, for there are
few which can equal it. The credit is
due more to Mr. Jones than to any
one else. although the teachers and
pupils have given great assistance,
for he it is who does the actual work
in getting up and advertising the ly
ceum course and other attractions,
enthuses the teachers and scholars
with the desire to beautify the build
ing and exercises such taste and ori
ginality in the selections.
It might not be out of place to
state that Mit. Jones last year cleared
an amount of money equal almost to
half the salary which he received
from tihe city.
