PROP. J. E. CANNON RESIGNS.
WilIl Work for Pacific Mutual-Prof.
J. B. O'Neail Holloway to .Take
Charge of School.
Prof. J. E. Cannon, superintendent
of the school at Little Mountain, was
in the city on Saturday, and stated
that he had tendered his resignation
as superintendent of the school to
take effect on the first of March. Prof.
Cannon said that he did this with much:
reluctance, as he was very much in
terested in his work and that the
school was moving on pleasantly and
his work was giving satisfaction to
the patrons. He has tendered his res
ignation to accept 'the position of cash
ier. of the general agent of the Pacific
Mutual Life Insurance company,
which position carries with it a larger
salary a.nd offers prospects of ad
vancement. Prof. Cannon was with
this office for sometime a few years
ago, and retired from the position in
order to go into the school work at
Little Mountain. He will go with the
company on the first of March when
the office will be removed from New- I
brry to Anderson. We regret to lose
Prof. Cannon from the county and|
from the school life of the county, but
congratulate him on the promotion
which has come to him without his

This is one of the best schools in
the county and the people of the com
munity have made nch sacrifice inI
order to erect a modern and up-to
date .building, and have levied taxes
for its support, but do not mind going
into their pockets for maintenance.
Everybody in the community takes a
commendable pride in the educational
progress which is being made in thi
community and we are satisfied that
the school will continue .to prosper
under the managemtnt of Prof. Hol
loway who has had large experience
as a teacher.
