UCATION FARED WELL AT
HANDS OF LEGISLATURE
AMONG THE CITIES
Will Urge Early Action Toward
Putting Into Effect Compulsory
Elections ir? Charleston and
Columbia Next Summer
"Thu educational Interests of tho
Stated fared well at tho hand* of thc
legislature," ?aid J. ES. Swearingen,
State superintendent of education,
yesterday, in commenting upon tho
work of the general assembly.
"Two Statewide mensure? of over
shadowing Importance to the schoolB
were enneted-compulsory education
and liberal appropriations. Though the
compuh'ory attendance law is not all
that was desired, lt marks the bc
xlnnlnR of a thoroughly progreFsive
policy. The school district is properly
made the unit for the operation of
this law. Hs adoption In any district
ia left absolutely to the wishes of the
people. This local provision will al
low any community a chance to test
the law for Itself.
"Compulsory attendance may be In
troduced In throe ways:
"1. Upon the petition of a majority
of .tho qualified electors residing In
"2. Upon a petition of one-fourth of
the qualified electors residing In a
district, nBking for an election on the
subject, at which election u majority
vote for compulsory attendance is se
"3. In (owns and cities of 1,500 or
more population, upon a petition of a
majority of the school trustees, ask
ing for an election, at which election
a majority vote for compulsory at
teudance must be secured.
Charleston and Columbia.
"It is confidently expected that a
large number of school districts will
petition themselves under tb ? law un
der the first option. An ennui num
ber of districts will ask for an elec
tion and vote themselves under thc
law by the second option. About 50
towns and cities Bhould be able to take
advantsge of the third option. The
board of trustees In each ot these niu
nlelpr.lttios will be urged by the State (
department of education tn hold an t
election or request compulsory nt- j
tendance in their district''. I should
like to see Charleston and Ciiolmbia
voto upon Cuts question for thdr L
schools on th? second Tuesday of next j ?
June. It is almost certain that both
cities will undertake a prompt cam
paign for compulsory attendance, lt ?
ls certain that some of thc smaller [
cities will begin this campaign with- t

ls.from 8 to 14 years. Tho term in
country schools ls four months. In
town schools attendance is required
for the entire session.
'.Adequate appropriation! for pub- .
He school activities were provided. 1 :
Special attention to country schools
Is noteworthy. The appropriation fer
rural schools employing two teachers
or three teachers was raised from
$60,000 to 1.80,000. The fund for spe
cially needy rural schools was raised
from $45.000 to $C0,000. Doth these
appropriations will be used to supply
at least one teacher for evory 50 ohli
u<en anc' to run each white school
at least ?Ix months, where trustees,
patrons end teachers will cooperate
with the county superintendent and
the State superintendent.
"The building fund of 320,0000 was
retained. This will help t*> provide at
leaat 80 new school houses during tho
Mill School Supervisor.
"One of the most significant Im
provements ls the authorization of a
State supervisor of mill schools. He
will he the sp?cial representatives ot
the Stato department of education in
mill villages and manufacturing cec
"ters. Ho will reach one-fifth of the
white people of tho state and will
have a wonderful opportunity for con
structive service. NO richer or broad- i
er field of public school effort could
be opened in the State
"With liberal appropriations, aggre
gating nearly $300.000 tor the year,
the continued development of public
schools is assured. The colleges farea
equally as well. Wralhrop got her

Cotton and Corn
We are recommending our 8-2 J-1, which
is 8 per cent, phosphoric acid, 2? per cent,
ammonia, and one per cent. Potash, for cot
ton and corn. We employ a chemist at the
Fertilizer Mill all the time to analyze every
thing before it goes out, to see that all our
goods are at least as good as they should be
before they are shipped out, and our 8-2J-1
analyzes 9.25, 2.72, 1.45. So you see you
are getting a better goods than we claim it to
be and a better goods than you pay for. But
that is the way we do business. Mr. Long,
the farm demonstrator for the State, says
the farmers of this section can make at least
one good crop without applying any more
potash. But it sometimes happens when you
install a pump in a well, it is necessary to
pour a little water down it to get it to pump
water, and we have an idea that a little pot
ash in your fertilizer will make that in your
soil a little more quickly available. And then
you have the satisfaction o? knowing that
you have some potash under your crops be
cause you have put some there, and safet}'
first is the plan.
So we are earnestly recommending our
8-2 J-1 for-y our co \ and corn this year.
You are really getting 9.25-2.72-1.45, but
that is your good fortune. The most of you
have been fertilizing heavily for some years
and we are satisfied this goods will give your
crops a good "send off." It is a choice
