at Wliihnire, ( happt'lls .ind
The closing exercise of the
Whitmire school were held on Friday
and Monday evenings past with the
sermon to the school on Sunday evening.
The Friday evening exercises
were for the common school or pri
mary grades. The sermon Sunday
evening was delivered by Rev. J. H.
Harms, of Newberry college. On Monday
evening a v-ery interesting play
was presented by the members of the
high school, and following this was
the annual address deliveicrl by Hon.;
Mendel L. Smith, of Cai.ifc.i.
In the high school three :.ri::es !
were given, one for attendance, one
for neatness, and one for deport:n:nt.1
The attendance prize was won by Sam
Gary, the neatness by Malel McCar- :
ley and the deportment by Julius j
Aughtry. A goia meaai was aiso 01fered
by the county superintendent of
education, E. H. Aull, for the best composition
by a member of the high
NEW SCHOOL BUI I
school department written on a subject
assigned by the teachers of the
school. The subject assigned for this
y?ar was "Th-e Need of a Compulsory
Attendance School Law in South Carolina."
Seven pupils of the high
school entered the contest. The essays
were passed \upon by Professors
W. K. Tate and W. H. Hand. In
reaching the decision they concluded
that two of the essays wero of equal
mprit. and. therefore. could not decide |
between the two, and referred them
back to the teachers to decide. It was
concluded that it would be better to
give two medals, and. therefore, Mr.
Aull announced that he would give a t
medal to each. It was found that the)
two essays that were considered ofj
equal merit by the judges were written
by two young ladies, Misses Xena
Duncan and Reba Xance.
The Whitmire school has grown almost
miraculously during the past
:? ar and the interest 011 :b<: part-of'
the community in the school has kept <
pace with the growtn 01 tne sciiooj. i
The. enrolment has grown from about I

ing force from three to six teachers.
It was decided by the trustees at a
meeting on Monday night to -employ
seven teachers for the next year. Fortunately
for the school, all the present
teachers have decided to remain,
and have been elected by the trustees.
Profssor S. .1. Wall, as superintendent,
and Miss Katherin? Chappell as assistant
in the high school, have done I
good work. The teachers In the common
school department, Mrs. S. A.
.Jeter, and Misses Donnan, Smitn, ana j
Fridy, have also done good work.
The school is?now amongst the best j
in the State. The plans and specifica-,
tions for the enlargement of the
school have been made and adopted
and the contract will be let in the
next few days.

the building which was used during
the past year for school purposes,
though it was not the property of the
district. In fact, the Silvers!reet district
did not own a buillding until the
present one was erected.
This building was constructed so
that an addition of four rooms might
De made without destroying the plan
and symmetry of tNj building. It is
only one-hail of the original design.
It contains two large recitation rooms,
a large auditorium, cloak rooms for
each recitation room, a superintendent's
office, and library room. The
two recitation rooms will be sufficient
for school purposes for the next year
or two. The purpose in putting up a
building of this kind and at this time
was to give the community an auditorium
in vvhich th-e various organizations
of the community might hold meetings,
and where also the exercises
connected with tiie school might be
The cost of th-s- building with the
tellers and well was $4018, and the
district owns about four acres of land
which cost $400.00. Everyrnirg has
ben paid for and a balance carried forward
for the maintenance 'of the school
for the next year. Teachers' desks of
the most modern type and pupils
desks and seats have been purchased
and will be put in as soon as they
are received from the factory.
The new building at Pomaria which
is a duplicate of the Silverstreet
building, will be ready for dedication
about the first of June.
Th? pontract for the building at
Chappells has been awarded to W.
B. King, of CLiappells, and P. F. Baxter,
of Xewbery, at a total cost of
$5825. This building will be a dupli

except that the halls have been made
smaller and som? of the rooms are not
quite as large. The building will have
six recitation rooms, two halls
through the building down stairs,
three stirways, a large auditorium,
and finished in front with colonial columns.
The Jalapa school district voted a

votes against it.
