The year 1915-'tG has been charac
terized by steady improvement. Mlod
ern buildings, designed by Clemson
College, have been erected at Long
View, .lt. Olive, Hurtington, -unters
ville (Bethany), and school district,
Jacks No. 4. Oakville has added one
room. Plans are now being perfected
for buildings at Bethlehem, Reedy
Grove, where a consolidation was
brought about last summer and at
Wadsworth-Youngs, a school just re
cently consolidated. Other schools ex
pecting to build during the summer are
Mt. Bethel, Ebenezer, Fleming, Ekom,
Ora, Clinton and Ilarmony.
Taxes or bonds have been voted at
Green Pond, Princeton, Bethlehem,
Reedy Grove, Laurens, Wadsworth,
Youngs, Mt. Olive, Warrior Creek, Rid
dies Old Field, Oakville and an elec
tion has been called at Goldville.
Elections for increasing tax failed at
Whiloh and at Mt. Pleasant.
Over $2,000 has been spent in better
eqiuipment-desks, maps, books, etc.
The State Department of Education
sends out a score card for rating coun
try schools. 'T'his card is so arranged
that the building counts sixteen points,
the lightilug six; the equipment thirty
one, grounds twelve, community ac
tivity ten, the teacher twelve. The
schools scoring between 90 and 100
are rated as A; 75 to 90, 11; 60 to 75,
C; 15 to 60, 1); and below 45, 1. The
number of months the school runs is
placed before the letter and the num
her of teachers after the letter. Thus
5112 means a school of it rating with
an eight. The schools of the county
are now classified as follows: twenty

Mr. 0. T1. Weathers and daughtnes,
Y OU want a motor car that will
serve you consistently. You
want to know that four car can
be relied upon day in and day out.
You want high mileage per gallon of
gasoline and freedom from repairs
and readjustments. And you want
these things, not occasionally, but
continuously-day after day.
On these qualities the Maxwell has
made good. It has proved its wokth.
Whei the Maxwell stock touring car
set the World's Motor Non-Stop
Mileage Record a short time ago it
travelled for 44 consecutive days and
nights and its performance was con
It went about 500 miles each and
every day. It went within a small
fraction of 22 miles to every gallon
of gasoline. It went the whole' dis
tance of 22,000 miles-probably fur- .
ther than you would travel in two
years-without any repairs or read
justments. Every one of eight tires
(two sets) went just about 9,800
miles and the others finished in good
shape. For consistency and relia
bility this record far excels anything
we ever heard of.
You can get a Maxwell, an exact
duplicate of the record breaking
stock car, on the partial payment
plan we have perfected. All you
have to do is to make the initial
payment, then take the car and
pay the balance as you ride. The
unusual value of the Maxwell, to
gether with our easy payment plan
of purchase, is bound to dispose of
our allotment of cars very quickly.
Better make your reservation now,
delivery later if you prefer.
