PINE GROVE GRADED SCHOOL.
Closing Exercises --Congressman Norton and
Others Speak-Honor Roll.
Those who are constantiv croaking
about the amount of money expended
in education should have gone to Pine
Grove with us last Wednesday and
there. thev would have received such a
practical demonstration of what educa
tion has done and is doing. that the few
paltry cents they pay in taxes would
not be so grudgingly handed over.
The occasion was the closing exer
eises of the Pine Grove Graded School,
the pioneer graded school of the county,
twenty-five miles from the court house,
in a section heretofore regarded crude
and undcveloped. A few public-spirited
men awoke to the necessity of educat
ing the masses. and by incessant efforts
succeeded in having established a
Those who traveled through that
section ten yers ago and who travel it
now can appreciate and realize the
wonderful progress made by these peo
ple: how the crudeness of the past has
hcen softened into refinement. and how
uneouthness and indifference has been
changed into culture and progress.:
Everywhere you go in that section can
he diseovered the refining influences of
education, in the building of dwellings,.
churches and school-houses, manners.
customs and dress. About the only
thing we saw which was not changed
was the hospitality and warm-hearted
attention to strangers: this character
istic of Salem people is -bred in the
bone," and education. fashions and ci
toms will never change it.
The crops from Manning to Pine
Grove are somewhat backward with
few exceptions. Tobacco in spots -s
good. especially that. portion of Mrs. M.
R. Shannon's which can be seen from
the road. "'Squire" Fleming and W.
J. Turbeville have brag patches close
to the road. but there are others who
claim even better tobacco than those
we have mentioned. Cotton, corn, oats
and wheat are in fairly good condition.
We arrived at the hospitable home of.
our host. Mr. W. J. Turbeville, about
dark. and as we drove up there came
out to meet us a drove of candidates
who were so smiling and clever that it
was with difficulty that they persuaded
us to permit them to take out our
horse and carry our baggage into the
house. These fellows were so persist
ent in their attentions that it would not
have surprised us had we been asked to
allow them to polish onr shoes. they',
seemed so anxious to do something. but
when we saw they were doing every-,
body else the same way we came to the
conclusion their cleverness was only a
temporary affair. and that when the
primary was over they would resume
their old time --don't-give-a-durn-for
' Professor McLaurin and Miss Laven
der had a very elaborate program and
when we reached the school-house.in an
instant we saw that a good time was in
store for everybody, if the lowering
clouds which were hanging black and
heavy overhead would permit. The
piazza of the school-house was con
verted into a stage, the sides were
closed in with cloth and the front was
tastily draped: everywhere was deco
rated with flowers and green. "Wel
come' was a conspicuous sign on the
background. This was unnecessary, as
the actions of the people spoke more
fervently than did the pretty .letters of
--living green.' Three mottoes were
interwoven on the drapery in front,
"Patience. Self-Reliance and Perse
verance." The stage presented a
unique appearance, the audience sat in
the openf air. The children were beau
tifully dressed and the manner in which
they 'performed their parts was indeed
creditable not only to them but to their
teachers, who must have devoted much
patience and perseverance in training
themi. Dialogues, recitations, declama
tions and music was the program car
ried out and it would be doing an in
justice to tundertake to make special
inention of any one. for they all did
well. The evening was an enjoyable
one. with the exception of some inter
ruptions of short duration caused by a
passing shower. but the crowd of about:
500 put up with the slight annoyance.
At the close of the evening's exer
cises Professor McLaurin announced
the p)resence of Congressman James
Norton who had come from Washing
ton to be with them and would deliver
the address the next day. and Senator
Appelt who would also give them a talk.
Thursday about 10 o'clock the crowd
began gat'hering, candidates very con -
spicuous, shaking hands here and there
and on our way to the grounds we saw
a man with a baby in his arms, with a
candidate for sheriff begging him to let
him carry it: one of his opponents was
a short distance off with his eye on an
other baby in a ladv's arms. and mak
ing ready'to grab it if the other fellow
was given the baby to carry. As it
was, he got a chance to pick up a bun
dle the lady with the baby dropped.and
carried it until the lady wanted to take
the child away from the noise -:o put it
to sleep (that was her excuse), then he
gave up the bundle, lifted his hat and
walked off in an opposite direction,
wondering if anybody saw him with
After going through with another
program consisting of dialogues, music,
recitations. etc., Professor McLaurmn
announced that the school exercises
were at an end, and that the address
would be delivered in the church, a
beautiful edifice with a seating capacity
of about 500 and modern in its apposnt
ments. Congressman Norton. Senator
Appelt. County Superintendent Wells
and Rev. Whittaker were decorated
with the colors of the school-blue and
yellow, and escorted into the church by
handsome ushers who wore sashes of
blue and yellow. The exercises began
with a beautiful and appropriate prayer
by Rev. Whittaker, and then Professor
31eLaurin introduced Senator Appelt
as the first speaker.
Mr. Appelt. in consideration of the
fact that Mr. Norton had come a long
distance to address the school, made his
speech briefer than he otherwise would
have done. He. however, took occa
sion to allude in gratifying terms to the
progess the people of Salem were
making on educational and agricultural
lines and urged them to keep up the
good work so happily and profitably be
gun. He made about a ten minutes
speech and then in fitting language in
Itroduced Hon. James Norton. The ad
dress of Mr. Norton was not only well
delivered, but it was of a kind which is
bound to make a lasting impression.
M. Norton was at his best, and al
1though not what might be termed a
-flowery orator. he framed his sentences
Swell and sent them forth in such a man
ner that the yotungest school child un
derstood him and the older ones were
inrssed with his sound andl practical
ieas. There was nothing of the tink
ling-silver-bell style of orator~y about

Swe are not prepared to give this ad
Sdress in full, as it is worthy of a place

-Mr. Norton said, in part, after refer
Sring pleasantly to the complimentary
.introdution by Senator Appelt:

What of education? Does it consist of

Mr. Norton then dwelt upon educa
tion. showing the necessity of taking
into consider.ion the physical man,
the intellectual man and the moral man
-the hands, the head and the heart.
He drew from the life and characters of
Stonewall Jackson and Gen. Sherman
and Grant and Lee. He made the one

When Mr. Norton finished. Mr.
Whittaker presented a book to Miss
Sudie Turbeville. and Superintendent
Wells presented a book to Miss Clarisa
Whittaker. Both of these gentlemen
made good presentation speeches.
Professor McLaurin concluded the
exercises with a speech in which he
feelingly spoke of his association with
the people of that section, how he was
attached to: the children, and next to
his own home in Marlboro the Pine
Grove community was nearest his heart.
He did not know whether he would re
turn to Pine Grove, but if it was not his
good fortune to be with them again, his
heart would ever hold a warm place
for parents and pupils, and with con
siderable emotion he bade them an af
fectionate good-bye and closed by say
ing "God be with you 'til we meet
This concluded the feast of reason,and
then came the flow of soul and wit, for
beneath the trees there was spread a
dinner "fit for the gods." It was a
Salem dinner. Do you know what that
is? The peopkc of that section are noted
for their magnificent barbecues, their
toothsome chicken pies, their delight
ful manner of preparing-, baking and
cooking everything, and they had
everything the appetite craved and the
heart wished for on that table, and in
such quantities that it made us regret
we had not carried our entire family so
they could have gotten a solid meal for
on'e. We ought not tell tales out of
school, but the fact is, there was a little
candidate at that table who wvon our
admiration for the way he appreciated
a good thing, and the way he stuck to
it. We are no slouch, our own little
self around a dinner like that, but we
had finished our dinner and gone .off
and smoked a cigar, and to our surprise
we saw this little candidate still at the
table splitting his face open with a half
of a pie; fearing the fellow was absent
minded and had forgotten there was a
tomorrow, we took the liberty to whis
ner to him and remind him of the fact,
nd the ungrateful fellow bluffed us off
by saying to us. " Take care of today,
tomorrow will take care of itself."
When the fellow was finally through
and went to leave the grounds his wife
actually had to lift him into his buggy,
because he was afraid to strain bis sus
The occasion will long be remem
bered by those whose good fortune it
was to be there, and the writer feels
under many obligations to Professor
McLaurin and the board of trustees for
the courtesy extended him and the
warm and cdrdial attentions shown him.
We sincerely hope the Pine Grove
Graded School will continue on its pros
perous road, and that the institution
will be linked with the great institu

ALL THAT LOUD TALK
ABOUT THE CHEAPEST STORE.
Might be very confusing and misleading if people did not have a good test
to apply, and that is, judge a merchant not by what he says in his advertise
ments, but by what he does in value giving. That's just the basis upon which
we ask people to judge our store.
We like to have our advertisements read, for they are our store news, but
we don't ask people to take them as proof that we give the best values. That
proof awaits our customers at our store.
