1803, and has coasolossly boon doing
Ecbool work over since. His first work

Ho always takes an active part in our
County Teachers' Association, and Is
over ready to lend a helping hand in
any movement that wl'l tond to improve
the school conditions lu tho county. Ho
has had experience In Summer School
work both In Texas and this Stato. We
consider ourselves fortunate in getting
him to accept the npimintment.
Miss Josephine MeSwain is from a
family of teachers. She has thoroughly
prepared herself to teach, and is well
qualified to do most elllciont work. She
is a full graduato of Winthrop Normal
CoUo^e: also of tho Woman's College
at Baltimore, where sho spent three
years doing post graduate work. She
has been teaching most acceptably In
the High School Department in the City
Schools during tho past session. On
account of her scholarly attainments
her services have been sought by some
of tho loading school men of the State.
Tho following course of study will bo

Podagogy, by Mr. Jones.
English Grammar, Literature and
Composition, by Miss MeSwain.
Petermun's Civil Government, Buoh
lor's English Grammar, and Hutchison's
Physiology will bo used. The teachers,
howover, may bring othor text books
that thoj may have on these subjects, as
thoy will bo urged to inako, a thorough
study of each one of these branches.
In addition to the above course, If the
teachers so desire it, Mr. Jones will
givo a course in constructive Geogra
phy, making school apparatus: globes,
maps, charts, color outllts, etc., or he
will givo Prof. Win. C. A. Hanunel's
course in manual training, consisting of
paper folding and card-board cutting.
Only teachors, or those preparing to
teach, will bo enrolled. All those ex
pecting to attend are urged to be pres
ent on tho first day. Tho instructors
have a1 certain amount of woi'k to do,
and every day lost in the beginning will
dotract and interfere with tho work
dono. Tt will bo obligatory upon all
who onroll to attend tho entlro session
unless providentially hindered?-do a
full month's work and tako tho final ex
amination. Those desiring a good time
and getting through with as little work
as possible aro urged not to come. It
will bo taken for granted that all who
attend possess the true spirit of teach
ing and desire to lmprovo themselves
by such work as will enable tbom to or
ganize, conduct and teach a school more
Due credit will bo given those who
desire certificates or renowals upon at
tendance of this or some othor summer
Everything will bo dono to make tho
work both pleasant and profitable. The
County Hoard is now arranging a series
of lectures on some of the leading
school problems of tho day. There will
be a special Trustee Day, and we hope
to havo tho majority of tho trustees of
tho county to hoar addresses from some
prominent educator of the State. In
short, wo hope to start an Educational
Campaign Movoinont this summer, that
will finally result in improving the con
ditions of ovory school In tho county.
Tho oxponses for board for the month
will be from $10 to $15. Arrangements
havo been mado whereby soveral of the
rooms at tho college building can be
used by tho mon f reo of cost. By bring
ing their cots and taking their meals
elsowhoro their oxponso can bo reduced
to a minimum.
A recoption will be given to tho teach
ers and their frlonds Monday night in
the chapel of th*e college building, be

The class will study from outline, so
that any good text books may be used.
The following are recommended: Mar
tin's Human Body, Blairdell's Practi
cal Physiology, Steel's Fourteen Weeks
in Physiology. The members of the
olass are urged to bring such books that
they may have on the subject. Tho
Stato adopted text, Hutchison's, will be
made the basis of the work.
civil. government?mr. jones.
The purpose of our public school is to
furnish better citizens to the State.?
With this end In view Civil Govern
ment should be taught in evory school.
It will be the effort of the instructor to
show that the subject can bo made of
intense interest to pupils of the inter
mediate grades by correlating It with
geography, history and current events.
Elements of Civil Government by Peter
mau will be used as a guido in the work,
and again tho teachers arc requested to
bring other books on the subject, such
as Fisch, Macy, Wlllougbby, Lansing,
or any that they may have. If we con
lino ourselves to Poterman's our work
will not be satisfactory.
English grammar?miss McSwain.
Buehiers Grammar will be studied
as tho text-book, but other grammars
will bo used for reference. The course
will cover the entire book, special em
phasis being placed on the more impor
tant parts that the olass may get a
clearer grasp of tho principles of the
subject. To this end discussions and
quostions on doubtful points will be
givon. Methods of teaching grammar
and ideas for making the study more
interesting will be suggested. The
correlation of grammar with literature
and composition will not be overlooked,
for the three should be closely connect
ed in all grades,
Literature and Composition?Miss
Llteraturo? This course will Include
tho study of the following classics:
Hawthorne's Wonder Book, Coleridge's
Ancient Msrlnor, Eliot's Silas Marner,
Lowell's Vision of Sir Launfal and pos
sibly Shakespeare's Macbeth.
The object of the course will be to
muko the class familiar with the texts
and to give the teachers suggestions on
methods of teaching literature. Mem
bors of the class will bo called upon
for their methods and opinions. Time
in class will bo devoted to literary in
terpretation and criticism, and reading
aloud of selected portions for correct
onunciation, pronunciation and expres
Composition- Composition may be
closoly correlated with literature; for
a study of literature Is necessary for
tho formation of good style, and cer
tainly an understanding of the principles
of composition is needed for the appre
ciation of good literature) No better
topics for composition can bo found
than those taken from literature. We
hope to have much practice in the
study of tho sontenco, the paragraph,
and the whole composition.
manual training ? mr. jones.
''Education Manual Training, or
sloyd, has for Its object the develop
ment of the pupil in certain definite di
rections by means of systematic exor
cises. It has in view the cultivation of
habits of neatness, carefulness and ac
curacy, tho acquirement of self-reliance
and consciousness of power, and certain
self-respect togethor with a wholesome
regard for bodily labor, tho development
of tho powers of observation and atten
tion, the training of tho eye and tho
hand, and It harmonizes those objects
with tho child's growth mentally and
physically, and correlates them with
tho usual classroom studies."?W. C. A.

In loving remembrance of little Don
nan Judson Bryson, who was born May
18th, 1000, and died May 15th, 1003, at
the homo of his parents, Mr. and Mrs.
W. H. Bryson, at Clinton, 8. C. His ill
ness was of short duration, having
taken sick on Sunday, and died the fol
lowing Friday. All that loving friendc
could do was done to relieve the little
sufferer, but all in vain?the mandate
had gone forth, "Come up higher."?
We deeply sympathize with the bereav
od parents, for we too have "passed un
der the rod," the chastening rod of
God's love, for "whom th?> Lord loveth
ho chasteneth." Weep not sad parents
for dear little "Zach" (as he was famil
iarly known), he waits on the other
shore with his baby hands, beckoning
you on to the "Haven of Rest."
