He Says They Can't Throw Saw-dust in
One of the gentlemen who was
accused of throwing up a pile of saw
dust as high as the jail in scarching for
a suppcsod murdered negro near Mit
ford says that some folks think I hey
can throw saw-dust in his eyes; but
that he wants to see the community

the faith that is in him, that the wife

Messrs. L~ les, Ketchin and Lem

to them as they stood, especiaily so far
as Fairfield county was concerned, yet
they thought it was premature to say
anything about the representation of
the two faction: in the convention.
Mr. E. B. Ragsdale was opposed to
making any agreement to divide dele
gates to the constitutional convention,
because lie thought it amounted to a
conspiracy or bargain between the
whites and would invalidate the con
Etitution and on his motion this part
was stricken out.
On motion of Mr. Lemmon nomi
nations were made from the floor, and
the following delegation was selected:

INSTRUCTIONS TO TEACHERS.
I desire to call the attl ention of pub
lic school teachers and ichool officials
>f gradcd and ungraded schools in
aifiel county to the fact that the
State Board of Education has adopted
a regu!ar course of study to be pur
waed in all schools in the State in
hich the teachers receiva all or any
part of their salary from the public
chool fanls; and that the pupils are I
o itic..ive instruc:ion in these branches
re; of charge. The course of sudy
dop'ed by the State Board September
, S903, embraces the following: Read
i'g alid literature, spelling, wiiting
ud ailihmetic (thorough course),
eograhy, history, penmanship and
usic, algebra-through equations of
he sec.md degree-civil goveinment,
ygiene and ethics.
Complaint has bcen made that li
on has-been charged to and collected
rom pupils who have not near fin
shed the course of public instruction,
.nd for want of money sotne children
ave been compelled to stop school -
u other words, the doors of public
nstrtction have been closed and their
.egal rights denied them. Upon in
estigaion of tbe matter I find the
atter true. Now according to Judge
ownsends decision, which has been
ustained by the Supreme Court, such
eacers or pr'ncipals forfeit their
lnim to pub'ic school funds. I desire
say, therefore, to all teachers for
heir protec.ion and in their behalf
hat they must conform their rules and
egulations to ti-ose of the State Board
f Education, by which they are gov
red; and to all pupils who ha're had
cease their at:endance at school for
ur such cause to return at once, and
njoy their legal rights and privileges,
