HIGH SCHOOL APPROPRIATIONS.
I.an tens County Interested in Problem
Confronting Education Hoard.
Columbia. Dec. 5.?Tbe State board
of education has been called to meet
In the ways and means committee
room at the state house, Friday, Dec.
16. At this meeting high school ap
propriations will be made for the
scholastic year 1910 11 All high
school principals and superintendents
should communicate at once with the
state high school Inspector if in any
state aided high school all the require
ments of the law and the regulations
have not already been complied with.
The hoard will have to face a diffi
cult problem in handling the high
schools of Anderson. Laurens and Or
angeburg counties The law limits the
appropriation which any county may
be granted to "> per cent of the $?',0.in0
allowed by the general assembly, In
these counties several comn unities,
which have enrolled the require.', num
ber of high school pupils, have em
ployed the necessary teachers and have
provided adequate buildings can not
be accepted as state high schools be
cause the fund at the disposal of the
board for their county is already ex
The present text-book contract ex
pires Aug. 31, 1911, hence the board
will probably take some steps looking
toward the next adoption. The law
requires text-books to be prescribed
everv live years and the establishment
of more than 125 high schools since
1907 will probably make it necessary
that high school texts be included
in the next text-book contract. At 'ho
last eieetine of ihe board .t : solution
was passed direct inc. an Inquiry into
the num'er of Bohools already using
books of their own selection and not

The successor to the present superin

who received the nomination in the

Fragrance of Hay.
The agreeable odor of freshly cut hay
Is imparted to It by certain plants of
the family of the labiates, such as the
salad burnct, woodruff, sweet trefoil,
etc., but In particular by the so called
spring grnss or vernal grass (Anthox
j nutinn odoratum). This latter is a very
precocious gramlna that nourishes as
early as the end of April or the be
! ginning of May. It grows in low and
thick luftfl and thrives chictly in fresh
and shaded ground.
Now. should you ask us whence this
odor of the spring grass which to hay
Imparts Its fragrance, It is due to the
aromatic principle called con mar In by
the chemists. This substauce is also
extracted from the above mentioned
plants in which it appears in appre
ciable quantities and used In the man
ufacture of perfumes as well as In
medicines in the form of sedative and
carminative pastes and sirups agalnet
brouchitls, whooping cough, etc.
The peculiar properties of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy have been thor
oughly tested during epidemics of In
fluenza, and when it was taken in
time we have not heard of a single
case of pneumonia. Sold by l.aurens
AUTOMOBILES FOR POWER.
Pleasure Cars May Bo Utilized For
Automobiles nre coming Into nse on
the farm as n means of plensura) for the
farmer and bis family. There is noth
ing more natural than a desire to util
ize the splendid power plant contained
In a car for other purposes than pro
pelling It over the roads. An ingenious
farmer has solved the problem In a
manner apparently satisfactory to him
self. The farmer devised an arrange
ment win rcby the act of putting the
car In its shod places It in position and
so associates the wheels with the ma
chinery of ihu datrj that the engine
when started will do the heavy work
of running the separator.
The accompanying sketch shows this
device so plainly that It Is not neces
sary to describe it other than to call
attention to the two rollers, one of
which has Its shaft extended outside
tho box to carry a pulley, from which
the belt runs to an overhead shaft. It
Is easily apparent that the revolution
of the wheels of the car will cause a
reverse motion of the rolls, which Is
transmitted by means of the pulley and
belt to the shaft and thence to the ma
chinery. In this way the wear on the

tires is rendered uniform. The grip on
the rolls that these tires exercise is
A peculiarity of this arrangement is
that the car shows a tendency to skid
from side to side. This, however, is
easily overcome by moans of props ot
Lumpers, which .are put In place so as
to limit the sidewlsc motion of the car
within the shed, the mere pressure of
the hand serving to move the car easi
ly when the wheels are revolving on
In very warm weather or on long,
heavy pulls it is sometimes necessary
to connect the circulating system with
the water supply In order to prevent
heating of the cylinders.
For sawing wood, cutting feed or
any work of an intermittent nature it
Is necessary for some one to control
the engine on account of there being
no governor. As a matter of fact,
oue farmer has a small boy at the
throttle most of the time, as the sep
arator Is sometimes thrown off with
I out warning.
