Books for Pupils of Edgefield
Schools. At the meeting of the State Board of Educatoin in May a list of books and course of study for the public schools to be used from July 1, 1922 to July li 1927 was adopted. Recent ly the State Superintendent of Edu cation sent out this list to the Super intendents and teachers of the pub lic schools. The books on the list be low have been selected for use in the Edgefield High school from the list sent out by the State Superintendent. No pupil should purchase books be fore the opening of school, as no grade will use all of the books listed at any one time and unnecessary ex pense can be eliminated by waiting to buy a book until told to do so by the teacher in charge. All old books used during the past five years can be exchanged for books on the new list at an exchange price agreed upon by the State Board of Education and the publishers. As far as possible the books already in the hands of the pupils will be completed before new books are purchased: First Grade The Winston Primer and First Reader. Practical Writing, Manual 1.

Timmerman iddressed the following letter to the Dax Coommission a few days ago, e'ting forth conditions that exist in his county and it is to be hoped that t lower assessment can be secured: Edgefield, S. C., June 22nd, 1922. 5tate Tax Commission, Columbia, S. C. )ear Sirs: The financial condition of the tax ?ayers of our county, due to boll veevil destruction of past year, is uch that there remains 25 per cent if the 1921 taxes unpaid; and the ; ?resent outlook being much worse, I ; eel justified in appealing to your lonorable Board to reduce, if possi- j ile, the assessment of real estate of 1 his county for the year 1922. The ; otton crop last year yielded only ; bout 30 per cent, and this year the ; .rospect, due to delayed season and i he abundance of the boll weevil, * lill reduce the per centage of the , otton crop below the 1921 mark to i . considerable extent. Not only have , r.any of our farmers planted little ! otton, and some none, this year, but ; he continuous rain has prevented ? hem from finishing their corn plani ng even to this date. Being inform :d that other counties in the dis ressed districts of our state are ask ng for similar relief I am filing this ?etition with your Borad trusting hat you will give the matter merited :onsideration and grant the desired elief. Yours very truly, J. R. TIMMERMAN, . Auditor Edgefield County. J. L.

JJkJJJ^ Generously good in Quantity North Carolina and its State Taxes. The following remarks are from a speech delivered by Congressman Pou, of North Carolina, at the Dem acratic state convention at Raleigh recently. What North Caroilna is do ing, South Carolina could do, if she would : "The state of North Carolina does not now levy a single cent of tax on the property of the state for any state purposes whatsoever. The state is collecting its entire revenues from taxes on inheritance, incomes, fran chises, insurance policies, and licens es. From its funds collected from these sources it pays the entire cost of the state educational work, in cluding state colleges and the special work conducted by the superintend ent of public instruction, and appro priates the entire equalized funds, of something over $700,000, which is given to the weaker counties in the state to equalize their schools. Ev ery other department of the state government, including all of the spe cial work done throughout the state, is p?fd from the state funds which are collected from the special sources of state taxes and not from any tax on the property of the people in the state."-Easley Progress.
