The county school fair was a great.

Clemson College has issued a bhulIle
t.in on South ('aro!ina's futare peach
crop. The present "peach" cr'op is
what worries us.
The young debaters on the negative
side of the debate "Rersolved that
Laurens county shottd have medical
inspection of Iher. schools," held in the
school huilding Friiay afternoon, did
not winl hill pot tp a live discusslot
under adverse c!rcum istances. Their
principal trot ble was the lack of any
real subistance to "a rgufy" on.
The superintendent of educationl
and the rural school sutpervisor have
issued a long note of thanks taking in
all Who had any connection with mak
ing the fair a success. They are quite
right in doing this. We think that
they themselves are due a vote of
thanks of some kind for their work
and inl hlsif o' Ilhe people of the city
and County so we hereby ti an k thou.
The fair was Iinarily dun e to their
efferts nnd they should receive credit
for its successi anl lenefits.
