DREADFUL, AccIDENT.-An aged col
ored wollian, lame Milly, met with
all accident at Mr. Creight's mill yes
terday afternoon, which resulted in
her death. She was assisting at the

caught in the Iband and she was c h

The Rev. J. N. Craig, of Lancaster
county, who preached at one tine at

Teachers will bear in mind that the
certificates issued in January last are
good only until November, and that all
persolls wishing to teach during the
next scholastic year must be examined

the 26th for the second and third gra(les.
It is to be hoped there will be no mnisun

To the County School Commission
ers of the State of South Carolina:
Enclosed yolu will fild the list of text
books adopted by the State Board of
Examiners for ulse ill the public
schools of this State, under the pro
Visionls of $5 of "All act to alter and(
amenld thle School Law of Southl Caro
1lina," app)lroved March 22, 1878. No
othier text books than those prescribed
inl this list can be lawfLully used in the
plublic schools of this State, except in
the City of Charleston. It is nlot ill
tenlded that all thle text books which
hlave been adopted shall be used in
every school, but ill arranging tile
coursos in thle different schoo01s, tile
teacheors mullst select from1 this list such
books as may be founld best adapted to
thle wants of thleir p)up1ils. The Legis
lature, at its last session, made nio ap
propriationl for the p)urchlase of text
books. In viewv of tile great advantage
of ulniformnity ill the text h)ooks, school
officers are earnlestly ulrged to impllress
upon01 paren1ts the necessity of prompt
comphlance with the law. Tile differ
enit pulblishing houses0, whlose books
hlave been1 adopted, wvill ofilrsuch te3rms
for inltroductionlof the books p)rescribecd
and for exchlange of those now inl use
as wvill put these books within the reach
of all the pupils attendingr tile public
schools. Very respectfiully,

WASHING AwAY THES COLOREn
GRAvEYARDl1.--The encroachlmen ts 01
tile large guilley in rear of the Methlod
ist church have long been watched
with apprehlensionl as tile friable nlatulre
of the soil causes it to be easily unde4r
milled anId to cave inl ill hunge blocks.
Thle gulley some time ago reachled the
borders of thle coloredgraveyard. After
tile last wet spell another landslide
occurred and the earthl in falling in
carriediwithl it six coffins with thieir con
tents. A visit to tihe place revealeda
number of hluman bones thlat 1had not
been covered up, while the debris of tie
coffins lay in conIfusionl where they hIad
fallen. Ill the p)erpenldiclar wvall of
earth bordering thle guiley?, and aubout
five feet fr'om thle top can be s0o1n a
number of coffins with the ends
wrenched oif, anid preseutinlg a ghastly
appearance. Tile townl counceil has
dug ditchles anId erected a trough te
carry off tile water, so that tile caving
will nlot conItlinue; but it is implossible
to fill the gullley up. Several years ago
the colored people purchased a plat o:
ground nlear tile freight depot, of whlich
they have mnade a cemetery, and they
have recently been endeavoring tor1aise
mfoneoy to mnove the remains from the(
thrieatenedloeality. Itis to be hmoped the)
will succeed. Among the graves thus
r'uthlessly violated bytile forces of
naturse is said to be tat of old Dick
Lewvis, who was wvell known through
thle peculiar manner In which his lower

110ard i>r use in) tle public sh(,1ools atre
Sanflorl's ut-ithine(ies. This series was
preired by P1roflessor Sanford, of
Georgia, and it, has been widely adopt
ed in teio South. It is based oil the
analytic syslem, and the analysis and
and rules are1 very clear. The arrange
mIleit Is Very good, anld it Is fully up to
the times. The HerieH has high tsiti
moilals. While iot so profound or so
diefllIt a Robinon's series, it is ad
mirable for all ordinary schools. San
ford's arithinetic is in plrtial use in the
Winmnsboro Graded School, and is quite
satisfactory. Speaking of these arith
metics, Prof. J. A. Gamewell, of Wof
ford College, writes:
Having used Sanford's Higher Ana
lytical Arithinetic for three years, I
take pleasure inI saying that
it has met the wants ofiny class so satis
factorily that 1 am uINVilliig to ex
change it for any similar work. The
analyses are easily titiderstood, making
ana, N"",bi , g
(Ile examles thit follow appear leS
difficult than, they are. The analysis
explaining the inrversion of the divisor
iII dividing one fraction by a fraction is
excellent. Percentitge is thoroughily
t rented. I have got fen from this arlithi
metic much valuatble informilion.
Wllithout h.esitationi, I reconnend it to
r 1E State Board of examiners' at its
- recent meeting adlopted the folio%% ing
text books for use in the pu blic Hohools of
8outh Carolina, outside of Charleston,
for the period of five years; Appleton't
ltuders, Reynolds' Readers, Davidson's
History of South Garolina, 11olmes' His
tory of the United "tates, A . inton's Pri
mary andCondensed Histories of theUnited
States, Swinton's Outlines of the World's
list ry, Swinton's Word Books, Web
ster's Dictionary, Robinson'.4 Arithmetics,
Saunford's Arithmetics, Cornell's Primiry
and Infermiediate Goographies, Maury's
Anilualof Geography, Westlake's Three
Thousand Words. A circular from the
State Superiutendent says; 'No other
text books than those presuribed in this
list can be lawfully used in the pub ic
schools of this State except in the city of
Charleston." Teachers and trustees are
therefore earnestly requested to make the
required change within the next ninety
days--within which timo very liberal
ratesaro offered. It Is of the greatest im-.
portance to socuro uniformity of text
books. Further particulars can be ob
tained from the Board,
