iu one of the most successtul years in
the history of the school.
The Walker-McElmoyle Literary
Society was organized before Christ
mas, and has had several interesting
and highly satisfactory meetings.
This society was instituted some four
years ago, and though it has been
once or twice in a state of relapse, *
it seems now to be manifesting as
much life and activity as could be
desired. The pupils of the four high

The officers of the society are as
follows: John B. Martin, president;
Lawrence Boggs, vice president; Hat
tie Kay, secretary and treasurer, and 1
Lena Thompson, critic. The subject ,
under discussion at the last 'meeting
was, Resolved, That the education in
South Carolina should be compulsory. ,
Harry F.ankin and Pauline Jameson ,
upheld tho affirmative side, while Wal
ter Jameson and Helen Rankin sup
ported the negative. The debate went
to the negative.
Our boys have already begun base
ball practice. Not only that, but they
have won two games by a good ma
jority. With consistent practice they
should bo able to compete favorably
with any school team in the county.
Those who have made the best show

Willie Jameson, Walter GilleBple,
John Martin, Rufus Newton, Arthur
and Raymond Qlllespie, and Harry
The school improvement association
is in a thriving condition, and seems
to be fulfilling the purpose for which
it exists. With a largo, enthusiastic
membership there is no reason why it
should not be a very potent factor in
the upbuilding of our school and I
community. The association is cod- [
templating giving an entertainment
in the near future.

Shipments Daring February Larg

NEW ORLEANS, March 3. -For
eign exports of cotton during Febru
ary were 1,544,512 bales, a larger
amount limn w:ib exported In . any
month this <season or last season:
Exnorts thus fp.r this b?rjq? total 1
5,28^.789 bates ngah?r-t 8,8S3,(i00 dur
ing all of last season.
Tho outward movement of tho crop
during February surprised traders.
Some had estimated not over 1,250,
000 bales would.be shipped, while v
many traders thought exports would
be under the million mark, since
February usually Is a dull month and
this year shippers "wero more or iess :
hampered by developments. in Eu- .
Tho height of tho movement last
aeaBon was In November, when i;470,
000 bales Vvero exported. Many trad
era predict that tho',. height of th?
movement this season has not been'
reached, provided tho measures which
tho European .allies are putting into
force regarding shipping do not have
too unfavorable an effect.
