STATE SCHOOL BOARD.
At M? Hl nie Held In Columbia Matters
Columbia, March 27.?After a ses
sion of two days, which ended last
night the state hoard of education at
its annual spring meeting considered
many matters of state-wide interest.
The first session was held on Friday
The llrst thing considered was the
adoption of regulations for the dis
bursement of the $60,000 appropriated
for school extension. The Harris act of
1910 made several important changes
in the policy established by the act of
1909. Henceforth, no private subscrip
tion can be used as a basis of state
aid. The district is made the unit for
distributing the appropriation for the
current year, and only those districts
levying a special school iax of not less
thin two mills are entitled to apply.
Districts whose apportionment of the
regular three mills constitutional tax,
poll tax, dog tax, and dispensary prof
Its will continue the session one hun
dred days, cannot share In the ap
propiation, , i, /.. < scnooi districts ?? ^
not entitled to participate in this
fund, because all state aided high
schools are under contract to continue
the session eight months, and these
high school districts already receive
much more from the high school ap
propriation than they could be grant
ed under the extension act.
State Aid to School Buildings.
The recent legislature also appro
priated $20,000 to encournge the erec
tion of adequate school buildings.
Three schools submitted blue prints
which were approved, and each of
these districts will receive $300 from
the secretary of the board. The law
requires, that all plans be approved
both by the county board of education
and by the state board of education,
and where such approval is secured
the district can receive 2."> per cent, of
the cost from the county and 2."i por
e -nt. from the state. In case of con
solidation, an additional bonus of $100.
*.">o from the county and $f>0 from the
state, may be allowed.
Two vacancies in the office of coun
ty superintendent of education, were
tilled at this meeting. Superintendent
Sample, of Saluda, having recently
died, and Superintendent Lane, of Ma
rion, having resigned. The Saluda
vacancy was Idled by the election of
Rev. .1. A. Carson, now acting county
superintendent of education by the
temporary appointment of the Saluda
Prof. W. C. Rogers was elected to
fill the vacancy In Marlon county.
Count)' Summer Schools.
The board apportioned the income
from the permanent school fund
among the forty-three counties, and
suggested that this money be used by
the county superintendents and coun
ty boards of education to Bupport
county or district summer schools.
This fund yields nearly $3,000 annual
ly, hut since no distribution of inter
est was made during 1900, the amount
now available is $5,851.00, giving each
county approximately $135 for summer
My little boy, who Is four years old,
has suffered a lot witli croup. On sev
eral occasions wo thought he was gone.
After trying all the old time remedies
and most of the new, I came home one
night at midnight, and my wife said.
"The boy has the crop again?suppose
yen get a bottle of Hyomei." "More
junk," I said, "but. we will circulate
our money so they all will get some."
I hastened to an all night drug store,

was breathing easier. In fifteen min
utes he was sound asleep. It broke the
croup so quickly It scared me.
