leorty years ago schools were car
ried on in every coinmuiii ty with only
on1e teacher to every fifty or sixty pu
pils. In our school d isrtiet we had twvo
schools, G rape Vine and liherty which
were located about three miles apart.
These were joined together twenty
years ago making Lanford school, and
a larger building was erected after
they were brougbt together and locat
ed In the grove near the laptist church
Six years ago another four room
building, costing over $2,500 dollars,
was erected In a more de.Airable lo
cation. Since, we have made many
improvements to our building and
grounds. We have three teachers. We
have two large libraries full of good
books. We have maps, charts and
globes and nice pictures Onl the walls.

Age 12 years.
Ekom school is situated 10 miles
west of Laurens, near Reedy river.
Since its establishinent in 18193 we
have had nine teachers, three of whom
taught one term cach. For the past
five years Mr. L. D. Eledge has been
our teacher. For several years we
have had a comfortable two-room
building, and an enrollment of 60, but
could afford only one teacher. Last
fall we applied for state aid and have
employed two teachers for the pres
ent session. Miss Myrtle Culbertson is
principal, with Miss Winona Chancy
assistant. Wxc have grades from the
first through tile nlinth except the
sixth. Last fall two of our girls en
tered IUnwood College and we have
two boys a4 Wofford College. We hope
in a few years to see established at
this place a high school, in which our
girls 111d boys canl better prepar
themselves fer college.

TPho State Tax Commission of the

the following communication relaotive
to the enforcement of the Income Tax
"The time for making returns under
the income tax law of this state ex
pired on the 201h of February last, and
a viery large number of persons liable
to the payment of the tax omuittCd to
make such returns within the tine
".Tie neglect to make the returns
inl time hay have beon cauLlsed in part
by nil erroneou-- impression that the
returns and payment of the income tax,
to the Federal Government relieved
these tax-payers from paying the in
come tax imposed b-- t. laws of this
"The fallur0 to make returens with
in time have been so general and wide
spread that we think further oppor
tuulty should be allowed such per
sons to iake thes0 returns before the

In order, thierefore, to save such 'per
sons who will now come forward and
make the proper returns, I, Carlton

power conferred 11on the Comptroller
