But here are some further
Eacts which were not available
[ast week. The books in the of
ice of the superintendent of ed.
acation will show that in 1905,
he banner year for the dispen
ary, the total funds from all
ources for school purposes was
32,895.72. During the same
year there were 5,279 children in
he public schools of this county.
In 1914, with nb dispensary
Eund,the total amount for school
purposes was $61,838.91, almost
100 per cent increase, and there
were in the public schools of the
ounty this year 6,630 children.
But some will say that increased
taxes account for the large reve
aue, which, however, is not true.
The levy for state and county
purposes, including the leyy fox
school purposes, is practically the
same this year that it was in
905, except in some school dis
ricts which have perhaps made
xtra levies to lengthen their
chool terms or build modern
ouses. The true reason for the
ncrease in revenue is the steady
increase in wealth in the county.

world, and this county is in the
center of that spot and is begin
ning to blossom like the rose.
Nor is this all. In 1905 there
were only three graded schools
in the county; now we have 18.
In 1905 there were only two or
three good school buildings in
the county, Pickens, Easlev and
Liberty; now we have a good
building in almost every school
district. Since 1905 approximate
ly $40,000 to $50,000 has been
spent in new buildings and im
proving old ones. Some of the
districts having new buildings
since 1905 with the cost are here

Norris, new building.----------- 900
Besides these, many of the
other districts have improved
their buildings, and nearly all of
them have been equipped with
the latest improved patent desks,
charts, maps, etc. So it will be
seen that there is a good school
in the reach of every child in the
county and that this county is
progressing and developing in
school interests as fast as any
county in the state with no dis
pensary or liquor money. Sup
pose, for argument sake, that
taxes have increased some, is it
not infinitely better that the
people put their money. into the
county treasury to go from there
I into the heads of their children
in brain building than for it to
be put into a dispensary treasury
or a barkeeper's pocket, where
only a small part of it ever
reaches the schools, but where it
results in making drunkards,
criminals and paupers?

was the Thanksgiving reunion
held at the old home place of I.

which is now the residence of
Mr. John Roe. The occasion
was held in honor of Mrs. Roe,
his mother, who is now in hei
83rd year.. Her heart was made
glad on this occasion by the
presence of her children, grand
children and so many friends.
The crowd began to gathei
early and about 12 o'clock a
table fifty feet long and five feel
wide was placed in the hall ani
on which the good ladies present
began to spread good things eat

and the bell was rung, calling
them to this good feast. Wher
all were gathered, numbering
103 persons, Rev. B. C. Atkin.

After dinner a song service
was held and Rev. Mr. Atkinsor
made a short talk. Mr. James

what a reunion means. He
was followed by Rev. CharleE

love of children toward theii

there was enough left for anoth

some of the oldest citizens of

the greatest amount of good
things to eat here that they had

there being over 300 pounds of
