Mayor Blease and Alderman Can-,

he city of Newberry $15,000, for
he use of the ci,ty council, at 5 1-2

ibly the cheapest money the city ILas
ver borrowed from any of the local
anks. Generally the local banks
harge the city 8 per cent. and never
ess than 7 per cent., in fact when
-he loans for the city were made
tway from Newberry the rate as low

Miss Pearson, Teacher Mount Bethel
School Arousing Interest in
Improving the School.
The Mount Bethal school in No. 2
Township is being taught this ses
sion by Miss Essie Pearson. In ad
dition 'to her duty as teacher in the
school room, she is engaged in ,the
important work of endeavoring to
arouse interest in educational gener
ally, and in the Mount Bethel school
primarily, among the patrons and
trustees of the school. Through her
efforts a school improvement associa
tion has been formed, and the trus
tees and citizens of the district are
showing much interest in the work.
Only a few days ago an entertain
ment was giveni at the home of Mr.
Cromer to raise money enough to im
prove the school, and at* the same
time it aroused an interest in educa
tion, and Orought the patr6ns and
On, Friday afternoon of this week
the pupils of the Mount Bethel school
will entertain the patrons and the
members of the school improvement
association at the sehool house.
Miss Pearson is working to put
her school in the contest for one of'
the prizes awarded by the rural
school asso'tiationt of the State. Miss
Pearson deaerves and is receiving the
eneonragement of the patrons of the
sehool. The pity is more of onr
-coun-try teachers do not take more
interest in improving the grou-nds,
ard providing more comfortable fur
niture for the children. In. nearly
every case where a willing teacher
will take the- lead, and show an in

school, it is very easy to secure the
cooperation of the trustees and pa
trons. Too many of our teaehers
