The county superintendent of eduj

ing statement in regard to school
"The election in the McCollough
school district on th-e question of vot1
ing a two mill tax resulted 19 in favor !
of th? tax and 1 against.
"In the St. Lukes school district,
| the election was held on Saturdav on
the question of voting a four mill tax j
sn a? to establish q rural graded
j school, and I am informed that the
itax was lost by one vot-e, there b ing
! 19 votes in favor of the tax and 20
against. Two voters who would have j
voted for the tax found when they got
to the polls that they did not have
their registration certificates. I had j
hoped very much that the people of j
the St. Luke^ district had seen the '
light and would vote the four mill
tax, and I rgret very much their j
failure to do so, especially on account;
of the great number of bright little j
girls and boys in the district who nesd
better school facilities. I do not be- ,
lieve there is a district in South Carj
olina that has a bette- opportunity for
: building up a rural graded school and
very soon a country high school than
St. Lukes has. The past year the enrollment
was a little over a hundred
and the public fund is not sufficient to

| two teachers. By voting th-e four mill !
i tax, receiving $300 aid from the State,
i the district could have had at least
j seven months with three teachers. The j
| tctal tax to each taxpayer would have '
been very little comparatively. This j
is one of the first districts that I vis- ;
ited more than a year ago with the;
view of endeavoring to indue0 the peo- j
pie to levy a tax so as to establish j
a rural, graded school because the ma- !
terial is there and the opportunity
of building up a model rural graded
school and soon a first class country
+ high school. This is the second election
that has been held during the
present school year, and I am gratified
to see that the sentiment is growing
in favor of improving school facilities.
"I hope that the effort which .has
l hopn nnt forth to induce the people
! * 7 " |
to do something will be continued and
that another election will be held
very soon, and I am satisfied that the
result will be favorable.
"There is now only one other elec'
tion t <f be held during this school !
j year in the Pomaria school district, j
where it is proposed to vote a four j
mill tax and establish a rural graded
j school. This election will be held on
Friday of this week, and I am satis- j
tied will result favorably.

titled to $200 for maintenance from
the State provided they erect suitable
buildings and proper equipment which
will comply with the requirements of
the State law.
The county board at its meeting
held last week passed a resolution
expressing the policy of the board to
be to erect buildings in -these districts
in the order named and to pay lor
same out of the proceeds of the onehalf
mill tax. Of course, this tax will
not be available until it is collected
during the next fiscal year, but ar
rangements may be made to put the
buildings up and pay for them when
the taxes are collected. This will have
to be done in order that the schools
may get this State aid. The idea of
the board in adopting this policy is to
encourage the establishment in rural
districts of rural graded schools. The
appropriation is made on two conditions;
one, that the trustees will submit
plans and specifications to the
board to be approved by the board befor
any money is expended, and second,
that the people of the community
will litf in every way within their j
power in the construction of the'building.
"A two mill ta?c was also voted in
St Pauls .district and I secured $100
from the State under the term extension
act for that district.'
