sod next fall a hog show. His idea
was to hold the hog show In con
nection with tho proposed county
fair. In tho event a county fair is
not held, ho suggested the holding of
a hog -show alone. Mr. Spearman's
idea is to offer a capital prize of $100
for th?> opo exhibiting tho finest pair
of Berkshire hogs and a series of
smaller prizes for those winning oth
er than tho first honor.
Local parties, it was* stated, have
already guaranteed the $100 for tho
capital prize, and it 1b proposed to
use tho S37.60 fund which Mr. Spear
man has made up for the other prizes,
Tho capital prizo has been guaran
teed in order that those desiring to
enter the contest may select their
stock now and prepare for tho con
It was stated that there has been
a wonderful increase in tho number '
of blooded hogs that are being raised
in Anderson county now. Mr. Spear
man himself has sold blooded stock
to some 30 or 40 farmers in his sec
tion of tho county who are now reg
ular producers of lino hogs. ,lt was
also slated that the hog farm of It.
M. Aull at ''Pendleton is responsible
for a large number of farmers of that

COUNTY SCHOOLS FUST
BUT HALF-DOZEN OF 86 IN
THE COUNTY ARE NOW
SOME VALUE OF $75
Williford School Latest to Place
Order for Forty Dollar Out
Of the 86 rural schools in Anderson ?
county not more than a half dozon aro .
without excellent libraries, according j
to statistics furnished The Intelligen- |
cer by ,14188 Magglo M. Garlington,
county supervisor of rural chools. The
last institution to avail itself'of the
advantages of a library is the Willi
ford school, which has just placed un '
order for an outlay of books costing
|30 and a bookcaBO costing $10, the
entire outfit being selected by Miss
Qarlington at tho request -of the of
ficials- of the Bchool.
At the ? rune time that Miss Qarling
ton placed the ordert for tho now li
bary for the Williford school she or
dered $15 worth of new books for
the High Point school and an equal
amount of new books for the Parker's
Creok schopl. ] These books aro ex
pected to arrive hero within tho next
few days.' i
As generally [known, there is an ex
cellent plan . whereby rural BChools
can acquire Small libraries. If the pat
rons of any echool Will raise $10 for
library purposes tho trustees will do
nate $10, tho -county .board of educa
tion a like amount and tho State board
of education $10. With tho $50 thus
raised, three fourths of .the amount,
or $30. 1b invested in books and tho
balance In a bookcase.
When a school already possessing
a library wishes to add to tho number
of bonks on hand a similar plan is fol
lowed. If tho patrons of the school
will subscribe $6 for this purpose the
trustees will donato a similar Bum and
tho State board of education $5. Un
der tho rules, however, no money will
ho appropriated for additional books
for a library In the same year that
one Is established.
Income of the rural schools of tho
county there aro libraries valued as
high as $75. Tho fact that not .more
than:a half dozen of tho sn rural
schools aro without libraries speaks
exceedingly well for; tha progressive
ness of Anderson qounty.' ; In tho
schools where, there 'aro libraries l ef
fective .systems are j used In letting
tho books1 out-.to the pupils. Small
cards aro .kept by the librarian on
which tho number of tho bgok taken
rSUt, Is ' fisfered' and the name iof'thc
person taking It. In the rack of each
book is pasted a small label on which
tho number of tho book, th?'number
of ' the. district, the dam? "of ; tho dis
trict and the name pf tho county In
which the library is, entered. On the
label is -printed the' following rules
govern nig the use ot books:
Do not keep a book more than two
' Each day over two woeks^ will cost
Damages to bocks must bo paid for.
* Lost books must he paid for In full.
Keep your hands clean.
Do not turn down leaves.
