* OLD TIME SCHOOL.
One of our congressmen in his
speech before tho house was lauding
the noble Daniel Webster; He ex
claimed the grandest piece of work
of his life, was the making of the
Webster spelling hock. A member,
sitting near, whispered to him, "You
are wrong, it was Noah Webster that
made the hook.
He replied, "It was no such a thing.
Noah made the Ark." In my school
days many boys and. girls got their
education out of the old blue back
spelling book. When you mastered
this book, you were a fair reader and
speller. We had no graded school
houses, only log wall buildings, with
a wide fire place, a few window shut
ters for light, no glass ash.
The seats were pine slab benches,
with no backs to them. The little
tots, when sitting on the benches,
would have their feet swinging above
the floor. The teacher sat on a high
chair, where he could look over the
room. By his side was a lot of keen
switches, which he freely used on his
pupils. In cold weather you had to
get permission to go up to the flre to
warm. If you went out, you had to
ask for leave of absence. Some of
the teachers had a board at the door,
marked one side "out", on the other
side "in". Every one In passing was
required to turn the board. On enter
ing the school In the morning, you
had to make your bow to the teacher,

had mending pens! The teach had
red, blue and black ink to make nil
fancy copies. The boys would get
Ink balls o ffthe oak trees, other?
would get chlnquopln or maple bark

The big boys were allowed to ciphei
things which they are striving to ac
complish and they need help, finan
cial help. They expect the musically
Inollned people of the city to help In
this undertaking, not only by attend
ing the concert themselves but by
urging their friends) and acqualnt
ences t oattend.
The concert will bo given in the
opera house, beginning promptly ut
8:30 o'clock. Tho prices of admission
will be very reasonable. Inside the
railing downstairs, whore seats will
be reserved, tho price will be $1.00.
Behind the railing will be 75 cents
and the gallery will be 50 cents. A
partition is In the gallery separating
Particular pains have been taken by
the ladies in charge of the concert to
have the ticket sale conducted so that
none may be disappointed In secur
ing tickets. They have had reserved
and general admission tickets print
ed to be sold on the streets. Those
purchasing these reserved seat tickets
can carry them to the Palmetto Drug
store on the 19th and have them ex- '
changed for numbered reserved seats
or coupons. Mp'.I orders received up
until that date will also be taken care
of on the same day. Purchasers of
reserved seat tickets on the streets
nre expected to have them exchanged
for the coupons on that day. Then,
on the next day or thereafter the gen
oral sale of reserved seats will take
place, when anyone can buy tickets |
and coupons at. the drug store. Of
course, anyone buying tickets on the
streets can have them redeemed at
the drug store even after the 19th,
though it will be best to secure the
coupons in exchange for the tickets
on the 19th so as to bo sure of secur
ing a seat. This plan was hit upon
by the ladies to ensure everyone se
curing a reserved seat who purchased
a ticket before the 10th. This also
gives the early purchaser the advan
tage of the purchaser who delays, be
cause the holders of the street sale
tickets have the first chance at the
reserved seats. As the number of
reserved seats is limited, it will be
safest to buy at the first opportunity.
