ably the n*o3t novel entertainment
ever given at a scboolhouse In An
derson county was that gWcn last
.Monday evening at* the Townvllle
school auditorium. The entertain
coaslsted largely in showing the kind
of class work done by the pupils of
the school. The children who took
part apneared pleased to be able to
play school for "their mamas and

lighted with their work. The pro

Next, a number of declamations by
the pupils of'the primary room; last,
arithmetic work at the blackboard
by pupils of the fir\i grade. A fea

Messrs. Dan Kay. George Spears,
