Old MonntTllle ScheoL
About eighteen yea-s ago. there be
ing no school for several mile*
around, some of the parents decided
to build a school house. This deci
sion once being made, they began to
worst U> carry it out. The place se
lected was about two miles south of
Cold Point The building was put up
about the year !5i>5. with Miss Lizzie
Hunter aa the first teacher. Messrs
Tom Cole. P B Richardson, and W.
Coleman being the first trustees No
name was ever given the school, but
as It *w off the road in some pines.
Mr. Coleman called it "The Ixmesome
Dove". This little school progressed
very weft, with about :5 pupils, for
two year*. At the end of this time it
was decided that It would be better
to mote the school where it would be
Bearer the center of the patrons, so
accordingly it was moved to IU pfwsr
e<at location, about two miles west
of Mountvllle. It was given the name
of Old Moun.vllle. because it is in
fhe section where the town of Mount
wllle use to be. Abou: this time Mr.
Cole resigned as trustee and Mr.
Frank Fuller was elected in his place.
This school progressed rapidly until
About seven years ago. when the pa
trots began to mcve out leaving the
school very small. The building has
only one room and up to a few years
ago had only rough benches to sit on,
but now we have very nice patent
desks V.'e h^d a box supper etc.. and
raised enough money to get a nice
library We have not done anything
towards improvement for the last
year or two as we have not had over
12 or 1C pupils and have been think
ing of combining this school with che
jne at Mountvllle. But this year so
many families have moved in that we
r.ow have cn roll 31 pupils and the
idea of changing the school has teen
i.--?-:ed and are now making plans to
bull i a new building. Last year all
the Children came to school what
time they could, but after they would
have to stop to help their parents,

the or:g::.:.. s .. 1 house was rc.led
away and the old church converted in.
to a school building, bast year the
residents of the community decided to
build a modern house and move It to
Rer.no. By this removal the p-esent
lot was forfeited, but a new four-acre
one given by Mr. J. F. Bell. A splen
did two.story, brick-veneer building
is now being constructed.

Palmetto *><hooL
The Palmetto school was establish
ed in 1911 from a part of the Mt. Gal
lagher school district. The pztrons of
the new school gave land, labor, and
money, and In the month of August.
1911. erected a handsome building, The
first session was taught by Mr. W. C.
Jones, ar.d the second by Miss S.
Francis Culbertson.
The school, though young, has made
rapid progress and shows every indi
cation of becoming a r.-.'dem rural
school within a very short time. The
present session has as enrollment of
forty-two pupils in the seven grades.
About half of these are subscribers
to the School Journal, and some of
the boys have become members of the
Corn club. An Improvement associa
tion has not yet leen organized, but
much interest has been shown and it
is to be hoped that such an organiza
tion with all its benefits may be had.
The establishment of a school library
has been considered Tor some time,
and similar interest is being shown
(along other lines of improvement.

ScufUetoa-n township three miles from
historic Musgrove Mill of Revolution

been located on land donated by Mr.
Byrd who has been a trustees for
twenty years. The present trustees

a credit to any community. Daring

Be Happy!
Happy the girt, or woman, who has never suffered from
any of the diseases of womanhood! Or, If she has been a
sufferer, happy is she if she has learned oi the wonderful
benefits of Cardui, the woman's tcnlcl
Cardui is a gentle, tonic remedy, for women's ailments.
It is a natural medicine?safe, harmless, purely vegetable.
It has been in successful use for more than 50 years. It
has cured thousands. It should do the same for you,
Cardu i WomanlTohk

Mrs. Mary Neely, of Denver, Tenn., savs, T think
there is no tonic on earth, as good as Cardut. I used it
with the very best results, I had backache and nearly
everything a woman could suffer with, until 1 took Cardui.
Now, I feel better than I have for two years. I shall
always recommend Cardui to other suffering women. I
can't praise it too highly. As a medicine for weak, tired,
worn-out women, Cardui is safe and reliable. Try it, today.

?Y THIS SYSTEM each individual is
