THE CLOSE OF
MISS COVINGTON TO RETIRE
Exercises by Children-Address
by Rev E O Watson a.nd
Tho closing exercises of Salem
school last Wednesday was a red
lotter day for that community.
Tho day was an idoal ono. Tho
children all went through their
parts with enthusiasm and without
a break or mistake. They showed
that they had been trained by a
master hand. Miss Mattie Coving
ton has dono a noble work for
that school and section during the
IMist year. There was indeed regret
expressed by all that she had de
cided not to teach next session.
She told tho trustees that if she
were going to teach at all, she
would remain Rt Salem. She in
tends to spend next year in study
and it is understood that she is
preparing for missionary work.
The trustees have been paying
Miss Covington $7f> a month this
year and she made about $10 ad
ditional from a music class. Thc
trustees are willing to pay her any
price she asked if she would teach
another session, but she told thom
that money would be no induce
ment. Below is the program,
which was curried out with bril
Scripture lesson, School.

Miss Covington said that whatevo '
success sho had attended in school
was due to thc support of patrons
and trusccs. She said that she had
never had a better set of trustees.
She then introduced a member of
the board, C I Sherill.
Mr Sherill said that Salem levied
a special bax two years ago and
has adopted tho policy of getting
the very best available teachers,
even if tho school term has has to
be shortened to do it.
This year they selected Miss
Covington who had attained the
highest success elsewhere. She has
not only trained the intellectual but
the moral and Christian life of the
children. It is regreted that she
cannot be retained longer.
Mr Sherrill then introduced the
speaker of the day, Presiding Kider
E O Watson.
Mr Watson said that it was an
unusual coincident that he had
been present at the opening and
the closing of this school. He had
never attended a commencement
that so filled his heart with joy.
Repaid a high tribute to Miss
Covington and her work.
He announced as his subject.
" It is the real human of life tc
make the most of our powers.1
Genius, ho said, is the capacity ol
hard work. Trained beasts can dc
things that untrained men cannot
lie had seen the horse, Jim Key,
make calculations quicker anc
more accurately than school chil
uWhat becomes of the smart
babies? " asked Mr. Watson and
then ho answered. "They have
boen murdered by mother and
father' and teacher, who rofuso to
allow their powers to bo properly
developed." Children should be
encouraged to develop their natu?
ral talents instead of doing some
thing they do not like.
There is no possibility of genius
beyond you-nothing in tho world
which you cannot do. "The al
mighty has given to all arms long
onough to reach tho stars, if they
will only stretch them out."
There is no greatness except tho
greatness of achievement. Every
thing worth while is wrought out
by strenuous effort. Christ is the
ono flawless ideal and there is no
immortality or great achievement
that may not be yours.
After Mr Watson's excollent ad
dress, Mr. Sherrill invited all to
repair to tho grove where dinner
would be served.
After a goodbye song by tho
children, Miss Covington an
nounced that a piece would bo
played while the audionco retired,
but, she on the piano, and Messrs
Aiken Heustess a? d Edwin Weath
erly on violins gave such sweet
music that the audience did not
move till it was all over.
And then came tho dinner, and
such a dinner can be propared only
by thc Salem people. Everybody
ate all they wanted, and there was
enough left for another crowd the
Tho trustees of the Salem school
'are C 1 Sherrill, Edwin Weatherly
and A T Odom. They are to be
congratulated upon getting Miss
Covington this year, and the suc
cess of the school.
