HIGH SCHOOL LAW IS DEFECTIVE
Superintendent Hand Writes of Present Status of the!
High Schools, Showing that the Towns and Cities of
over 2500 Inhabitants are Discriminated Ag?iinst.
Columbia, S. C, January 5th, li>12.
Editor The Advertiser:?As you doubtless know, the high school law of this
state prohibits the state board of education from giving any part of the
high school appropriation to a school located in a town of over 2,500 popu
lation. For three years 1 have tried to get this restriction removed, but so
far I have not been successful. I am sending you enclosed an extract from
my annual report which is now iu tbo press. Since your town is denied the
benefits of the high school appropriation, you will doubtless be Interested In
some of these figures. I hope so! and I trust that you will publish iu your
next Issue as much of this extract as you think proper, in order to get the
matter before your delegation to the general assembly. I ask this in behalf
cf your own high school.
Very truly yours,
YV. H. IIAND.
In bin annual report to the Legislature, Mr. \V. II. Hand. State .High
School Inspector, has this to say in regard to the high school appropria
tion, from which it will be gathered that the high schools of Laurens and
Clinton are barred:
I cannot refrain from calling attention once more to one of the defects of
the high school law?the unwise and harmful discrimination against a cer
tain class of schools. No more blatant demagognery was ever preached than
that which foBters the disruption of the ties of a homegoneous people, if
our state is ever to achieve that omlnenco which we profess to believe
is here, it must come through the united efforts of a united citizenship; It
will never come through jealousy and suspicion and selfishmenss. If we are
to develop a school system, that Bystem must be the fruitage of co-operation
and justice. The state is presumably engaged In building better schools for
all the children of the state wherever they may be. The Insignificant high
school appropriation could not support the high schools of the stiite; it
Is simply used as a stimulus. Vet, because of their population twenty-live
places In the state and 3,225 white children (37 per cent) cur not be reach
ed, notwithstandlnm the fact that these same places contribute $84,636.12 of
their school taxes to other communities. This discrimination might be de
fended were it true that to aid the larger places would be to rob the smaller
I places, or that to aid both would make the high school a| propriution exorbi
tant. Neither is true; in fact, a part of the appropriation every year has
been returned to the state treasury.

I IN MEMORIAM |
Four years ago today since Alma
died! How quickly the time h sped
and how well I remember that sad day
four years ago.
AH. day a cold aJnuary rain had
fallen in fitful gusts, and towards
night the wind moaned thro' tho p'nea
as If In sympathy with hearts bowed
with grief and woe, for the word had
gone from house to house, the sad
and awful truth "that Alma was dy
As the night shades deepened with
the patter of rain drops fulling, and
tho winds singing a requiem I wendod
my way to the Culrortson home
thinking I possibly could be of some
help?not Into the chamber where the
dear sufferer bad met the last enemy
and conquered, but into an upper
chamber where sat the dear parent
with the two little boys and the tiny
baby girl?that was left motherless,
so soon, where a dear sister with
cheerful face, though breaking heart,
cared for the wants of the children?
there where I thought my presence
would be of some help and comfort I
went, but I was the one comforted.
Never shall I forget the conversation
of that Christian father and mother
A little while before the end, when
the faithful watchers thought she had
closed her eyes on earthly scenes for
ever, she rallied and with a smile at
the dear old mother, she said; "Oh! I
have seen over the River, and it is
such a beautiful place," and to the
faithful sister she smilingly said:
"And the dear little children that ar?>
these. They are all dressed In white
and you ought to hear thorn recite. 1
have lots of friends up there and I saw
a great many people dresHed in white.
They said they would give me a nice
suit when I got back."
These were about her last wordp
and what a consolation It was to the
hearts of her parents. She had seen
a glimpse of that beautiful city and
then together they sang to quiet the
fretting of the little babe, the old, old
. Tis religion that can give
Greatest comfort while we live,
'Tis religion will supply
Sweetest comfort when we die."
Alma filled faithfully lier missions
in Ufo. She was an ohedient child, a
devoted sister, a faithful wife and a
Au u friend and neighbor, she has
never been excelled. She was almost
an invalid the last few years of her
life, yet her sufferings were uncom
plainingly borne. Those of us who
loved her, will never forget the smile
that greeted her friends. And now.
though four years have gone, since you
left us Alma, you arc not forgotten.
We think of you today, nH wo do of
so many loved ones, who lie sleeping
under the snow.
I.Ike Mary of old. In her youth,
she "Chose the better part" and when
the end came she went home;
Our loved ones are gathering yonder
Our ftrends, too, are passing away
And soon we shall Join their bright
And dwell In identity's Day;
They aro safe now In glory with Jesus,
Their trials, and battles are past;
They over-came sin and the tempter,
They've reached that Fair City al

YOU COULDN'T expecl a half fed child to grow
up big and strong, could you? Nor can a big
profit-making crop come from your soil, unless
the crop is properly fed.
Few soils known have enough plant foods to remain
fertile when cultivated. Exacting crops draw heavily
upon its fertility.
Ammonia, Phosphoric Acid and Potash are drawn
from the soil?some crops requiring a great deal of one
and less of another. Fertilizers must be mixed as
accurately as a doctor's prescription to supply the
elements that are lacking, that the crop takes out.
The fertilizers made by us are conscientiously made.
We could cheapen them, and analysis would not show
the difference. But we prefer to give you the utmost
in plant foods for the price you pay. For we consider
reputation our richest asset.
The bountiful yields of cotton?the mammoth yields
of corn?produced by them, are winning for them
