The Advertiser prints today a num-;

of Laurcns county We would have
been glad to print more of them if we
could have secured the photocraphs.!
There are many other school build

prettier than m.?ny shown today, but
we were not abie to secure photos :n
time to have cuts made of them.

The Advertiser wishes to thank all
those who have contributed in making
this special educational number a sue-;
cess. The contributions and special
articles in this paper are appreciated
by The Advertiser as well as its read
ers. Outside of their contributions,
to the columns of the paper itself. Mr.
Pitts and Miss Gray have rendered
us great service and to them we wish
publicly to express our thanks.

The Advertiser regrets that it R
forced this week to leave out ? uuna
her of the letters of its valued cor
respondents. Nearly every one of
them were set up in type when we
went to pre*?, but there was no Way
to pet then: in the paper without add
ing another section to the paper. A*
this would have required almost an
entire day. we did not feel willing
to delay the paper that much so the
letters had to be left out. We hope
that the letters from the schools w:!'.
take the places of the regular ecus

9j -ak::.z >f Ike advancement along
educational line* a'.', ovt the state. Dr.
Sr.y?--r ; .-.; 1 :-. very pretty compliment
to the Laurena school system in his
lecture Friday evening. Dr. Snyder is
always careful of his words, so we
suppose he meant what he said. His
words wer* something to this effect:
"The well organize! school system,
the scope of the work being done, the
beautiful and well kept building and
the c^-op^ra'ian among the teachers is
an example of what will be done by
the schools of South Carolina in the
future." Not this: -what Is being done
In Laurens now will be done in other
parts of the state in the fu'ure. Lau.
rens Is striking out and taking the
leadership in educational matters.
? ? ?
Now. why would Clinton and Foun
tain Inn and Woodruff et al want to
carve off piecea of laurens county to
make new and smaller counties when
euch progress Is being made in educa
tion in the county as it is. Would
either of these proposed new coun
ties be able to support such a school
system as is now supported in Lau
rens county? Would they be able to
j>ay a competent superintendent or
have a rural school supervisor at all?
One of the areumenta used during one
of the campaigns for a new county,
seat recently was that taxes coul?. be
Teduced by paying county officers less
and that a superintendent of educa
tion could be gotten for $200 a year.
Maybe so. but what kind The people
of l*aurens county do not care to have
a $2m0 per year superintendent of ed
ucation trifling with their children.
? ? ?
We suggest to The Fountain Ina
Tribune that It continue in its next
Issue the discussion of that phase of
the new county matter which deals
with the subject of the three mill
school tax and what would happen to
the school children of the present
?upper portion of Laurens county In
case that section should choose to go
Into a new county with Fountain Ian
as the county seat. Please do not
leave the subject hanging high In the
air on the pretense of lack of space,
but give it more space next week and
i at>> wer the questions that you have
I ask.-d. In the nieautlme. however, do
not compare conditions in the lower
part of Green>ille county with those
in the upper part of Laurens county,
for in case a n<?w county were formed
the results upon the schools would be
just opposite instead of the same,
in case the Tribune is correct as to

The report of the rural school sup
ervisor shows that of 136 teachers in ?
the rural schools of the county this
year. 72 hold their present position
for the first time- Prof. T?te declares
as to the excellent school system in
Switzerland that its success largely
lien in the stability of the system. The
school teacher often remains in one.
place for a life term and becomes
one of the people themselves. He
keeps in touch with the life ot the
people and knows the children well
?lough to deal Intelligently with each
Of them as they come to him. He is ;
able to appreciate their weaknesses
and to cultivate their strong points,
dealing with them sympathetically and j
finally rounding them out as good
citizens able to make the best of the i
particular ability wbirt is theirs. The
schools of this state should be con-'
ducted In this manner as much as
possible. The one term teacher should
be madt? a thing of the past and each
school should endeavor to keep in its
esaploy as h'-ng as it can that teach
itr Who has done faithful service. This
can be accomplished largely by lib.
era'.ity in the payment o' salaries.
The teacher's salary should be regu
lated according to length of serv ice in
the particular school, thus providing
a stimulus for longer service

Laurens county should consider
herself fortunate and we are sure
that a large portion of it does, in bav- (
ing at the head of her educational ;
affairs two such capable people and'

incessant work on their own part and |
by their ability to enthuse others in ;
the work they are doing, they have j
succeeding in weaving together a j
school system in this county that is '
accomplishing great things now and
which eives promise of even more in
the future. -j
Peculiarly endowed with the gift
of Imparting to others the enthus
