yield more, than $2,000-this added to
the amounts now allowed to the four
sclools in town would amount to more
thia'n threo thousand dollars and could
be divided as follows : The Female
Academy for girls only: Two teachers
at $35 a month each, total for nine

$900, aid one thousand dollars for the
principal of the three schools. This
would give its the best school advan
tages we have ever had in Newberry
and would cost each taxpayer very little.
Let us have an act passed, an election
on the question and try the graded
schools, if we don't like them we can re
pel tie act and dispense with theml,
but, If once established we believe they
they will be a fixture.
ON TO NPA ItTANI'It(a.
The Columbia, Newberry and Lau
rens railroad is moving onward, with
lhattering prospects of being built at an
early day. Lexington' las just voted
forty thousand dollars. This, with
amolint subscribed by No. 9 townsyi1) in
Newberry, will be almost, enoiglh to
grade the road from Broad river to Pros
peril V. We are looking to Colum bia for
several thousand more, and whatis Idone
there should be done at oice, or we will
look toward .ewiedlale or Johnstons
for ahll :1 1 eave Columbia to the left.
'l'he Orangeburg andl Iewiedale and the
1llackville and Alston Railroad are both
looking toward Lexington all New
berry for an outlet, and if Columbia Is
inditlerent, we shall advocate reaching
Charleston by one of these routes. At
the same' time we would prefer going to
Columbia If the people there show a dlis
posit ion to give tlie road sub-tantial aid I
by hic'easinhg their subscription to say
11Iteen thouisand dollars. The next step
will he to vote a subscription Ia No. I
lownshlip of Newberry. Then on
through No. -1, to the corner of Lauirens
an1d Iblion, and from thence to Glenn

eo111i11Ission1ers have olderedl anl Ilectionl
in No. .I township in the interest of the

by the people of this Iowlsllip, becau-e
it was thouglt. at the time to be the

1'hou art gone iti thy b$auty so rare,
Our sweet bud of praise so fair,
Yes, gone to the land of the blest
E'er sin had thy lily-heart stained,
E'er guilt had thy pure spirit pained,
Thou art safe in a haven of rest.
l'hou art gone from the gloom and the
[uto Heaven's own beautiful light,
Gone in thino innocent years
Ne'er to know anguish or pain,
Ne'er shall thy brown eyes again,
Be dimmed with the shadow of tears.
one to bright pastures of green,
Where clear living waters arc seen,
Swift-flowing thro' emerald sod
l'o the soft summner-land where the
Bloom 'mnid perennial b.*wers,
In the fair garden of God.
Would we from thy pure home above,
Recall thee, in our selfish love,
With yearning that eannot be stilled
Back to this grief-stricken earth,
Where trouble and sorrow have birth
And its days with sadness are filled?
No, darling! we yield thee to God,
And plant thy loved flowers on the sod,
That covers thy beautiful clay
We must weep-but not bitter tears,
We'll wait, while the swift-gliding years,
Bring the glad re-union day.

The first thing is to teach children
how to hold a pen. To do this, let
them place the pen over the ear.
Then take it down. ''hey will hold
It then Just right. The position
should be according to circumstances,
generally at desks, a half oblique
position seems best. In teaching
proper movement of the arm, con
sider the peculiarities of the arm and
hand. The fingers are made to do
small work. The muscles of the
arm are for large work ; part of the
fingers are adapted to clasp
and to hold. Use them for the
work to which they are adapted.
'he little finger is good to slide on,
it can slip over the paper. At first
children rest the hand on its side.
To correct this, use a cross-bar fas
tened to the hand, and let the fin
gers clasp a ball of some sort. 'Phis
will keep the hand and pen in the
right position. Then give an exer.
else in llaking long sweeping
straight lines. Then long sweeping
curved lines. You can illustrate
curves and straight lines and angles
by a string suspended from a nail
over your blackboard.
It is a poor policy to set children
to copying the same word a great
many times, they simply copy their
own mistakes. Give them some
thing that interests them, but one
thing at a time. You cannot learn
how to paint a picture by merely
copying it. You have to draw to
learn prospective by degress, I was

ment for a week, doing it eight hours
each day. Next week I was given
the task to make 0 by left movement
for a week. The result was that I
got the figure which enters into all
capitals and every part of them. The
lines run into each in every grace.
In making letters that are one
space high, first teach how to make
such words as minn, "'mum." Prop.
crly made, it will be the same upside
down. It nunst be made without
taking the pen from the paper. It
is injurious to teach letters in parts,
lifting the pen after formning a let.ter,
or a part of a letter, let t he space be
even. Practice a great deal on trial
papers. Shading should be rare.
Some writers do not shade at all,
better shade every third letter, better
not write in columns, but rather in
lines.--Dr. 11. W. fl((tr', in Iei.
