The Intelligencer regrets tho action
of the Irusteo* , t the county In adopt
ing u r?solution to abolisli thc office
of rural county supervisor, a position
which is hoing held BO acceptably by
Miss Maggie Carlington.
Thia action was taken at a meet
ing of which less than half of thc
trustees of tho county were present
and only a small number of those
present voted, so it doca not meat)
that there Is any well defined opposi
tion to the rt' M? ion of this Impor
tant other. Wc trust, at least, that
tho county board of education will
require a more general vote on thli
matter before accepting thc vote yes
terday as final.
Anderson County is n large county
and has a very large enrollment ol
pupils. Thc work to be done ii too
great for one person, aud Supt. Kel
ton statcb that it is essential that 'hi
hav}o assistance iu looking after thc
schools of thc county.
We understand that tho county
hoard of education .4109 a county I
board fund of $3,000, und that about
$750 of the Halary and oxpeness of thc
rural tchoo] supervisor has been paid
out of this fund. Tho Peabody fund
which baa heretofore been avallalle
has contributed $250 and lt seems
that tho failure ot this fund induced
tile vote yesterday.. So for $250 thc
trustees would deprive Anderson
County of one of the principal edu
rational officers. Surely there is
something other than this to have
caused tho vote.
We aro Informed that there are 67
school districts Jn the county, and
about 85 schools, with an enrollment
or over 8,000 pupllB. Th0 portion ol
$250 lo bo paid by each school, ot
pupil if you please, ls . too nil to
po rm lt this.
Tho Intelligencer does not bclttrv*
the trustees ot the county will allow
tltis voce to stand, and we confidently
cvpoct the noxt meeting-to reverse
tj-.e action ot yesterday's meeting.

MOSQUITO CAUSE OF MALARIA.

Interest to the people of the South
