Mount Zion Graded School
R. Means Davis, Principal.
Mount Zion School will be opened
again on the 2d of September.
The Histrionic Club will give an
other entertainment on the 11th of
The Hampton. Rife Guard of
Ridgeway will drill for the fist time
in full uniform on Tuesday. A hop
will be given before long.
It is welcomed by all like a new
star in society. We mean Dr. Bull's
Blood Mixture. *
The State Democratic Executive
Committee has appointed Friday
the 13th day of September as
Hampton day in Winnsboro. The
Democrats must appear in full force
on that day.
'THE HAMPTON HERALD.-We should
at an earlier date have congratulat
ed the people of Rock Hill upon
the reappearance of the hampton
Herald. The herald is a live
paper, and is soundly Democratic.
We wish it prosperity.
MT. ZION SOcIETY.-A full meet
ing of this society was held on
Thursday, at which arrangements
were made to raise the necessary
amount to continue the graded
School. The subject of education
was fully discussed, and the pro
ceedings were full of interest.
The Yorkville Enquirer was mis
taken in supposing that the appoint
ment of an alternate to West Point
gives him an opportunity of com
peting again at that place for the
cadetship. The statement is au
thorized that only in case the regu,
lar appointee shall fail from any
cause to enter the academy at the
time appointed by law, the alter
nate will be entitled to apply for
the position. The Enquirer in its
last issue makes the correction.
DEATH OF Mus - T. W. WOODWARD.
-Mrs. T. W. Woodward died on
Wedneslay evening of congestion of
the brain, after two days' illness.
Mrs. Woodward was a native of
Orangeburg, and a sister of the late
Col. Olin M. Dantzler, but. she had
resHidadl since her marriage in Fair
floid. She was a pattern of Ch'ris
tian virtue, and by her gentleness,
amibility and quiet dignity en
deared herself to all who knew her.
Her remaidns wer3 interred in the
Methodist church--yard. The sym
pathy of the entire commuhity goes
forth to the bereaved family.
OURs lxONS ON THlE SCHOOL LAW.
MAessr8. Editors .- T here seems
to be some misapprehension in the
minds of a good many of our people
with reference to the duty or power
of the school comissioner in locating
schools in the different parts of the
county. It is a matter of consider..
able importance, especially as it may
influence a good many votes in the
approaching election ; and in order
to a proper understanding of it,
I hope that you or the
school commissioner will give full
and satisfactory replies to the fol
lowing inquiries :
1. Can the school commissioner
establish a school in any township
without the consent, or against the
wishes, of the school trustees in said
2. Have not the school trustees
the sole power to establish schools
in their respective townships ?
8. In a locality where a school
would be composed of children from
two or more townships, can such
school be established mn any other
way than by the concurrence of the
trustees in the different townships
4. Can the school commissioner
draw upon the school fund to pay a
teacher, except upon a pay-certlicate
first signed by the trustees of the
township in which the teacher's
school is locatedi
5. Are not the school funds dis
tributed in the different townships
in~ proportion to the number of
ch~ildren attending school in eacht9
A full reply to the above inquiries
will, I think, not only rmove a false
impression ' from the minds of a
good meany. but wil alia shaw the
proper remedy for evils comphtined
of. Not only the e~incation of our
children, but the futiue welfare of
county and State, in a great measure
depends upon the proper manage
ment of our public twhools. How
important that we have as school
commisn3siorer one who is thoroughly
conversant with both the thery
and management of such schools,
and who will work to promote their
efficiency and success. Let our
people think well over this matter
before casting their votes in the
primary election, and not allow
prejudice or personal preference to
influence them where so much is at
