A Joint snake.
Last Saturday some boys were at
tracted by a snake rolling itself like a
barrel-hoop along on the ground near
Mr. Alan Johnstone's residence in
N ewberry. The snake held its tail in
its mouth, making a circle about one
foot in diameter. The boys struck the
snake and it separated into about ten
pieces. The Herald and News was
shown several of the joints. They
were black and white checked on the
back and solid yellow beneath, and
plainly showed where they had been
connected t.tget her. The tall-piece re
sembled a sharp spike. The joint
snake has been generally considered a
a myth, but this specimen proves that
it does exist. The myth about it, how
ever, is that when slightly <'. figured
it cannot get back into the ring. Some
people superstitiously believed that
when separated in joints it could get
itself together again.
Until the blood is cleansed of i
purities, it is useless to attempt the cuwe

traceable to an acid in the blood, has
been eured, in numerous cases, by the

tretment being of no avail.

The Graded Schools.
The first s,essiou of the Newberry
(raded Schools began last October.
As there were no suitable buildings,
and only ordinary school furniture,
the work was somewhat retarded at
the beginning. But notwithstanding
the ditficulties to be met with, the
schools have had a very successful
year as was shown by the examina
tion at the close of the session.
The written and oral examinations
in all grades where a credit to both
teachers and pupils.
Prof. J. F. Brown and his corps of
earnest assistants should feel well sat
isged with what they have done.
Their work has certainly met the ap
proual of trustees and patrons.
There have been more pupils en
rolled during the past session than
were ever enrolled before in the schools
of Newberry in one year.
It is expected that the new school
building now under construction, will
be finisled before the next session
It was a long time before the people
of New berry could be made to feel the
importance of graded schools, but
when they did they went to work and
The School District.
At the annual meeting of school trus
tees held on 13th of June, it was decid
ed to ask the legislature at its next
meeting, to grant the County Beard of
Examiners the right to use public
money for the purpose of redistricting
such portions of the county as they
may think proper. The County Board
would be willing and are even anmious
to redistrict portions of the county, but
by a decision of the Attorney General
they have no right to usepublic money
for this purpose.
There are portions of the county in
which the people are asking for school
districts, but it is perhaps better to~wait
until the next session of the legislature
when there will doubtless be an act
passed, authorizing the proper authori
ties to redistrict every county in the
Superintendent of Education May
field has prepared a new form for
teachers' certificates of qualification.
Under the new rules a teacher must
make an average of 86 per cent before
she is entitled to a first grade certificate
of the highest - class. A grade of 80
per cent, however, will give a teacher
a first grade certificate but not so high
as the former. The first grade certifi
cates are divided into three clesses :
Class A, class B and class C. The
second and third grade certificates have
I think, however, that the super
intendent has made a mistake in his
new method of grading the examina
Under the new plan it is possible for
an applicant to make a first grade cer
tificate, when under the old plan be
would not have made even a third
I will now try to illustrate the truth
of the above statement.
In the future the applicant is to re
ceive credit for attending teachers' in
stitutes, and for experience in teach
ing. For every institute (not more
than ten) every institute she has at
tended, she is to receive a credit of. ten
points. It is possible for her to make
&nore hundred points in thIs way. For
every -r(not more than ten) that
she has taught, ~~i also to receive a
credit of ten points. ~ ible for
her to make one hundred points in -
way. She then goes into the examina
tion room with two hundred points to
begin with. Suppose that in the nine
branches examined in she makes an
average of 58 per cent. This would not
even give a third grade certificate. But
let us multiply the 58 per cent, by nine,
turnumber of branches, and we have
522 per cent, To this add 100 per cent.
for institute work, and 100 per cent.J
for expi'erience in teaching, and we have
722 per cent. Divide this by 9, and we,
have 80 2-9 per cent. This would give
a first grade certificate..
The above method is the one that we
are to use in grading papers, unless a
change be made. It is to be hoped
that the State Superinte~ndent will see
his error and correct it.
The County Board of Examiners
have concluded to wait until Septenm
ber to hold the Teachers' Institute.
They have waited to hear from the
State Superintendent, who is making
arrangements for institute work this
summer, and as they could not hoar in
time to hold it in July they concludedf
to postpone the matter. There will be, 2
however, enough teachers' meetings toe
atte'ad in July. Oin the 3d and 4th we
have a meeting at the Rutherford school
house, and the State Teachers' Aso
ciation will meet at Anderson on July
22--2.4. Besides these two meetings, the
Southern Teachers' Association will
meet near Chattanooga, Tenn., on the I
8th. A few of our teachers will attend
this meeting also.
Teachers, don't forget that the Asso- I
ciation meets at the Rutherford school
house on next Friday. Be sure to come.
All arrange-nents will be made for your
