association of South Carolina.
"I think that one of the greates
needs of our country schools today is
the improvement of the school build
ings and the school grounds, for I be
lieve that a large and a very import

I could arouse the patrons as well a:
the trustees to the importance of thi:
work, they would be surprised witi
how little eftort they could make thei;
school buildings and grounds attrac
tive and comfortable. It is sad, how
ever, that this is greatly neglected ii
a great many of our rural schools. I
does seem to me that the mothers o
the children would take a little mor
interest in this work, and if the
would form an improvement associa
tion in their district, and co-operato
with the teacher and encourage her
they could accomplish great result
with very little effort. With this it
view, I have invited the trustees an(
patrons to meet me at the schools oi

good attendance as I would like. A
several of the schools a number o:
the patrons and most of the trustee,
have been present.

Dispatches to The Herald and News
from Columbia state that Col. George
Johnstone suffered an attack of apop

afternoon, and that he was taken to
Knowlton's infirmary. At 2 o'clock on
Thursday afternoon a dispatch from

"Paid in Full."
Eugene Walter's great play of mod
ern New York, "Paid in Full," holds an
extraordinary place in dramatic criti
cism. It stands alone as the only play
that has been universally praised by
dramatic critics in every city where
it has been seen. This fact establishes
its exceptional power and worth, and
is apart from the evidence furnished
by the three milion -persons who have
seen it, far more than ever have wit
nessed any other play in a like time.
Such unvarying tribute from drama
tic critics as has been given to "Paid
in Full" is unprecedented. Many plays
have been generally commended,
though against all of these a critic's
pen now and then has dissented from
popuIar opinion. Not so with "Paid
in Full." In New York, Chicago, Bos
ton, Philadelphia and all leading ci
ties of this country, and equalIy in the
smaller ones, wherever "Paid in
FuIl" has been played it has swept
all dramatic writers to highest enthu
This famous play will be at the
opera house on Tuesday night, Febru
ary 13, when it will be presented with
a noted New York cast. The engage
ment is the most attractive theatrical
announcement of the season.
