OLD FOGY WKITKS.
Ware Shoals, H. F. D. 2.
Editor The Advertiser:
Will you please allow me a little
space to make a few suggestions. 1
am an old farmer living up he e and
have been raised up in old fogy ways
Ilk'; a great many old people. The
times and people arc not now like
they were fifty years ago when some
of us iwere boys. 1 will say that if
some of Us had had the opportuni
ties then that boys have now, we
might not have been so fogy now.
l have just read the Columbia speech
of .Mr. McCravy, of Easley, and I think
he's on the right line in regard to ed
ucation. People ought to br Interest
ed enough in their children to send
them to school without compulsion,
but. as above stated, a great many
are unlearned themselves, nave been
raised up In an old fogy way, an.'
don't realize the Importance of educa
ting their children. If they could
have their eyes opened and be made to
Bee the importance of an education at
this age, as it is more important right
now than ever before a compulsory
education law would not be neces
sary. But it' they won't wake up and
porsistently refuse to send their chil
dren to school, 1 think Mr. McCravy's
bill is right in ha/ing some sort of
compulsory law to force people to
send their children to school. Some
claim that it's taking their personal
ILberties from them. A man that is
so selfishly working tor that almighty
dollar, so much so that he can't spare
his children for school, should have
no liberties. In this respect, this old
fogy was raised where there was but
two of us boys aud our father, like
most of men, needed his boys to work.
Schools at that time were only one
in a hill and "fur" between, but'
Father was detcnmdned that we should
have some learning and he sent one
this year and the other next, walking
four or five miles. Hoys these days,
where they have to walk two miles,
complain that the school is too far.
This old fogy believes In fewer
schools and better schools, if it does
necessitate some to walk some little
distance. It will give the pupils plen
ty of exercise. If course every man
can't have a school at bis door.
I notice the idea for blending two or
more schools together Is getting to be
very common. You see, by having it
this way, there is a chance to get thej
very best of teachers. Right here, I
would like to make a suggestion. Here)
is Poplar Springs Hroworton and Mt.
Rethel. All lie so that they could bej
blended together very nicely and we
could have a fine high school. The pa
trons of each school should think about
this matter and let's see if we can't
get this in Shape so we will be up with
the times. The light of education is
shining brilliantly in other communi
ties and why can't we get into the
One other suggestion and 1 am
through. While we 'Work for the high
school, let's get interested in a rail
road. There is a trolley lint spoken
of from Basley to Anderson. One al
ready runs from Anderson to Helton.
Why can't some of the enthusiastic
enterprising railroad men take bold
and run it from Helton across this
county to Laurens, from there to Clin
ton, from there, by the way of Cross
Anchor, to Spartanburg. This enter
prise would open up a good country
and be of great service to us. This is
one of the best counties In the state,
if he had railroad facilities. You
railroad men think of this suggestion
from an old fogy.
