THE SWILTON SCHOOL.
County Board bismisses A Petition For Its
Removal to Mt. Tabor, Heard
Mr. C. A. Epting appeared before
the county Board of Education Satur
dy, presenting a petition signed by
about twelve or fifteen persons asking
that Swilton school, in the lower part
of the county, be removed to the old
site at Mt. Tabor Church. The reason
for the request, as set forth in the
=, petition, was the desire to vote a
special tax for the support of the school
which it was impossible to do under
present conditions. The petition was
dismissed, and the school remains at its
present site, near the residence of the
Rev. J. A. Sligh.
" This matter which has been in the
circuit court several times, and in
which the Supreme Court of the State
has been called upon to render a de
cision. The matter of the contentior
is the site upon which the school is
located, some of the patrons preferring
that it be'located at the old site at Mt.
> Tabor Church, and others preferring
the present site near the residence of
the Rev.' J. A. Sligh.
As the matter now stands, and under
the decision of the County Board ren
dered on Saturday, the school will not
be moved. There was a full meeting
of the Board.

has taken an active interest in the
meetings of the county teachers' asso

mended, and by his ability and his
good work Prof. Jones has placed him
