I iONTVALE SCHOOL
In the blue and azure hillsof Pickens,
situated on a shapely knoll near the
Sassafras Gap road, about Six miles
north of the countk seat, stands a hand
some green schoolhouse. Montvale dis
trict, in which this school is located, has
the unique distinction of being the only
district in the county having the compul
sory school attendance law. This law is
not perfect, but it helps. Montvale is also
the youngest district in the county,
being No. 56. Over a year ago arieight
mill special school tax was voted, and
as a result the state has offered the
school an extra month this year, mak
ing a seven-month term instead of six,
as it has had heretofore. The accept
ance or refusal of this offer is left with
the trustees of the district.
Christmas the teachers, pupils and
friends of the school held a box supper
and the proceeds, about $50, has been
expended in equipping the school build
ing with hyloplate blackboards, crayon,
window shades, dictisnary, flag, etc.
Nearly a hundred pupils have been
enrolled this session and the attendance
has been excellent. Two teachers are
employed by the school.
Next Sunday (the fourth) Dr. David
Ramsay, pastor of the Pickens Baptist
church, will speak at the schoolhouse at
3.30 o'clock in the afternoon, provide(i
