GRADED SCHOOL COLUMN
Conducted and Edited by Pupils of the Laurens
Through the kindness of the broad
minded editors of The Laurens Adver
tiser, our school lias been assigned a
column in their valuable paper in
-which to record the happenings of our
school life during the remaining
months of this session. We try to
abide by the old rule "Tell no tales
out of school" but as we feel that the
public is interested in the progress
that our school is making and the
acts and doings 06 the student body,
wo accept the offer with thanks.
During the time we will publish
the Honor Roll and some of the com
positions, poems, etc. of our "master
minds" and if they fall below your
standard of good reading do not blame
the editors of this paper but over
look the short comings of the original
work of our pupils.
As to the news there is always
something happening among the four
hundred and more school pupils and
we hope to make this department in
Asking your Indulgence and appre
ciation of our efforts we beg to make
our bow to the public .

Washington's birthday was observ
ed in the school auditorium by an ap
propriate program rendered by the
After the usual devotional exercis
es that inspiring song, "My Dream
of the IT, S. A." was beautifully ren
dered by the whole student body, af
ter which Richard Dunlap, president
of the tenth made gave "The Birthday
of the Father of Our Country."
In response to an Invitation from
the llrst and second grades, quite a
number of the patrons of the school
assembled in the auditorium to wit
ness a program given by the pupils
? >f these grades under the splendid
supervision of Misses Meng and
Ilrown. The applause the little "tots"
received as they rendered their re
spective parts, showed that their ef
forts were appreciated. Favorable
Comments \\?re heard on every side
and doubtless each parent was proud
of the SUC0088 of their children and
congratulated themselves on having
them placed In the care and training
of such competent teachers.
After an Intermission of fifteen
minutes the student body assembled
in the chap 1 lo wltnoss a play. "The
Heir of Mount Vern in," given by the
pupils of tlie grades taught* by Miss
es Davis ami Cromor. This play
was the most appreciated feature of
the day, being given in the old colo
nial costumes and customs. The pu
pils did well and few would have
thought this their first appearance on
the stage. The following made up
the caste of characters:
Madam Washington, Miss Annie Burns
George Washington, Walter Rut
1>ord Fairfax, Frank Reld.
Mary Bland (George's swoetheart),
Hnclo Benins, Llewelyn Sexton.
Hilly (George's body guard). Warren

As most of you know, I am many
years old. During the year Is'.s, I
was made in Troy, X. v.. and was
shipped out bright and new.
I enme lo th|s town and was plac
ed upon the top of the Laurcnsvllle
Female college, which was bull I In
the Bnmc year that I was made. Many
?were the bright young faces that
' ?ame within those college walls for
the first lime at my summons. My
tone was never .sweeter than at the
commencements of the sweet girl
graduates, l saw your "mothers as
they came there and went, many nro
the fair women all over the South
land, that 1 welcomed to that college.
That building was a college until
1X92, when it was sold to the board of
trustees for a graded school. Instead
of young women. 1 then greeted young
boys and girls. Many were tho
pranks that I witnessed, which were
devised by those young people. Of
ten on new year's night. I rang out
tJie old year and welcomed the new.
On one New Year s night some mls
ehievions boys broke Into the build
ing, ellmbod the latter to where I was.
and hit me with a hammer. To this
day I wear those scars, and they re
mind many boys of thnt night.
Finally the building became too
old, and not at all convenient for so
many pupils. This new and beauti
ful building was made, and I was
transferred to It. Instead of being
put on the top of the bullding, I was
pnt on one side of the steps. Here
1 felt very tpieor at first, because of
having been taken from my lofty po
1 itlon and placed so near mother
earth; but since I have noticed so
many happy faces, as ihey smiled at
me, I realize that l am happier now
than I have ever been before. And
here i now welcome the son:*, and
daughters, and oven the grandsons
and granddaughters of the women that
I first welcomed.

The Ganges River which surpass
es all others in sanctity is the prin
cipal feature of India. In courts the
witnesses take their oaths upon the
water of the Ganges River.
The two banks which it divides here
are as unlike as Paradise and Hades.
The Hindus long to die on the north
ern shore for they go at once to heav
en. The. southern bank is a sandy
waste and it is believed that if any
one expires here be will be a donkey.
Tho priests issue a kind of policy
against death on this unlucky shore by
saying hat those who visit a shrine
some es away, once a year will be
free fr? ai transmigration.
Rroad stair-cases of stone extend
in one unbroken line along the river
hank. Thousands of Hindus stand
here praying, bathing, conversing, or
carrying the water away in jars.
Just after sunrise these stair-ways
are thronged with men, women and
children, thinking only of their bath
in the "Holy Ganges." They believe
that it will purify their souls and
wash away all taint of sin.
The Ganges River is very filthy.
Bushels of faded Powers are cast in
to the river and float In masses on
the surface. Anong these weeds are
the remains of human bodies, partial
ly cremated on the shore. Every
bather takes up in his hand soitte of
this fluid and drink it. Gallons of
this river water are carried away into
the country where ready purchasers
are found. Although the English
government provides a good supply
of purified water, the peo.de prefer
to use the water of the "Holy Ganges''
and come long distances fo li!l their
jars and take it home.
It has been necessary for wooden
piers to be built out Into the stream.
Although there are miles of stone
Steps on the shore for all comer.},
they do not at times afford sufficient
space for the pilgrims.
Longfellow was born in Fcbruarv
27, 1807. lie died in 1SS2. He liked to
write poems, lie started to school
When he was three years old and
when he was six years old he could
read and write. He spent his vaca
tion at his grandfathers. His grand
father told him about Indian stories.
!l? liked little birds. He did not like
to kill them. If he was living today
he would be 105 years old. He died
when he was 75 years old. At the
school where he. lived all the girls
and boys saved their pennies and
payed a man to make Longfellow a
chair. The last poem be wrote was
"My Arm Chair."
The Honor Roll this year consists
of names of pupils who have made not
less than 05 on Deportment, On on At
tendance and 00 on scholarship. To
fall on either one of the pupil's name
does not appear on the roll.
