a special levy of eight mills for
this district. The vote Satur
day was 16 for and 3 against.
The patrons of this district have
also petitioned for compulsory
e(ducation, being the first district 1
in the county to do this. Who t
will be the next?
Wade H. Chastain, one of the
public spirited citizens of the
county, has offered, free of rent
for ten years, ten acres acres of
land just behind the Montvale
school house for the use of the
school in teaching practical agri
culture and for experimental
purposes. This is most generous
in Mr. Chastain and will doubt
less be the cause of much real
and lasting good. We under
stand that the trustees will ac- t
Tept his offer and will get a
graduate of Clemson college as
teacher, so that he may teach
agriculture besides the regular
studies. Montvale is one of the
leading rural schools of the coun
ty and is making rapid strides
Ioward being the very best.
