The beginning of the growth that is j
substantial of any town is with the |
building of permanent streets.
Lexington, S. C., has organized a j
chamber of commerce and elected &
real live secretary. Does Newberry
see the point?
What about extending Harrington
street under 'lie railway into West j
Knd. Now is t;he time to act. Has j
Mayor "U'right investigated and is he !
ready to report action. Don't continue j
In the Grennville News of Sunday!
; morning, \V. P. Beard asks Prof, j
Clinkscales, candidate for governor, j
certain questions. The Greenville j
? News gives Mr. Beard's article a
prominent position, under a double
column head. We would like to inquire,
who is >Ir. W. P. Beard?
Sometime last year the citizens ol
Newberry vo:ed an amendment to
the charter changing the terms of the j
mayor and aldermen to two years.
To make this effective as we understand
it the legislature had to pass
an act amending the charter. Will
our senator and representatives kindly
inform us if they carried out the
wishes of their constituents in this
v matter or will an election have to be
held tib Is year again. The acts navei
not yet been printed and we do not re-!
call soeing any such act reported in
the newspapers as having been passed.
We ask only for information.
Certain of the alumni and former
, students of Newberry college issue a
call in this issue of The Herald and
News for a meeting of all alumni and
former students of Newberry college
in the court house on Wednesday
evening of this week to discuss matI
ters pertaining to the interests of the
college. Every one who can should
attend this meeting. As we understand
the call it is a get together sort
of meeting and the purpose is to cooperate
for the good of the college.
Any sort of get together meeting is
good for the community. Get together j
on anything, on something. The college
is a good subject with which to
make the start.

I had the pleasure of spending Friday
with Ue teachers in theiv annual
meeting at Spartanburg. It was a
fine meeting. The attendance was
good. The programme, was interest-j
ing and instructive. It has always j
seemed to me, however, that it is a!
mistake to have so many organiza- j
ticns in session a; the same time with
the association. It would be better,
for instance, to have the meeting of
the county superintendents at a separ- i
ate time when that was the only \
thing. These officers should be at the !
teachers meeting anyway. But this is !
asiJe and has nothing to do with the
comments that I started to make.
* * * ,
There were very few teachers from
Newberry present. Apart from the
city sohools the only teacher I remember
to have seen present was Prof, j
Wall of the Whitmire school. And j
j "* * X1? -O J.1 J
mere were omy iwo ur uiree ui uie
city teachers present. Every live and
up to date teacher who can possibly J
do so should attend these annual gatherings.
They are helpful just for the
recreation and contact of one person
with another engaged in the same
line of work, if you get nothing more
. out of them.

Preident Ga.sque and the other offi
cers of :he association are to be congratulated
on rhe excellent programme
arranged and the successful
carrying out of the same.

I had the pleasure of stopping a*
sa.ne hot--1 and rooming wi:h Dr.
j James P. Kinard, or rather since he
has left thf girls and g ne to teach Mi
j the boys at the Citadel, I presume tne ???
j proper title is Major James P. Kinl
ard. There were a bevy of Winthrop
! girls among the teachers, for at every
turn Maijr Ki.:a: d was hailed by some
one or dozen .uirl teachers who wanted JUL ^
to speak to him. I had told him be- j
fore that it was a foolish move for
him to leave \Vin:ihrop, and I think
this trip made him just a little home
sick for his old school. But this is

I wanted to .speak just a word or "it0*1
two about the address of Dr. P. P. ; '
Claxton, the U. S. commissioner ofj
education. He is a fine speaker and j
knows something of rural school con- j w e 7
ditions and the 2ieeds of the common : j
schools, and his speech should have O
been heard by every teacher in the ; 0~f 1
S;ate. He spoke of toe need for bet- '
ter teachers and in order to get them !
there should be better pay. The con-1
stant changing of teachers was also j
pointed out as an evil, and he argued j A
rbflt the teacher in the sraded school !
should be promoted with the children, j gjjj. al
and that in order :o teach properly it j comple
was''necessary to know the child, and j will be
to know something of the child's life i alu' rai]
outside of the school room, and this !
was impossible when teachers were j
fci n c y 0
constantly changing, and in the grad-;

In regard to rural schools he said !
that he 'had sent Prof. Tate to Switz- j
erland to study the system of that |
country, where it was acknowledged I
was one of the best systems of any
country, and after he came back Prof. w gr
Tate said it was very simple. They $3.50.

and he beomes a citizen of the com- ^
muniiy, and a part of the community
life, and a leader in all things that are MJO
for tfiie uplift of the community; he Miss*
comes to know the children and their Slipper
history, and 'their out of school life, $1.00, $
and can then really teach as teaching j
should be done. He thought that was
the solution in this country. The
school lot should have along with the Abou
school house a home for the teacher, . and m
' yard, a
and some twenty to forty acres of land, ya]
and the teacher elected for a long
period of years and let the school
land contribute to his support. When
that was done we would begin to build i
up the rural districts. ^
This me: my hearty approval be- j
cause it was along the line thai I had j
suggested to the schools of a certain ;
section of Xo. 0 township more than faanM
two years ago. It is the solution of ?^
rhp rural lifp nrohlem and ir. can be !
done without burden to any commun- j I
i:y in the way of taxes or expense.
He did not beleive in too much con- ' Mm
solidation, especially where it tfas I I
necessary to transport the children. ? ^
On this proposition he is also correct.
I took a different view once but found
that 1 was wrong and so stated. !

At the night session Congressman '
Lever delivered a very practical and |
able address on the high cost of j
ignorance and by an array of figures j . aft J
showed where is was necesary for us IV.
to call a halt and do something to
cut down this high cost by applying _!
intelligent methods and producing
more of the things we needed, and aless
cost, as it could be done. His address
was well received. I OIaaJJ
