welcomed visitors have come.

were directed. At "Central no ll-elp ;
was asked, but a story was told. Mr.
Swearingen talked over with the peon1<*.
thp rmestion -of orvenine Little
_ -- ^
Mountain school to people outside trie 1
district. The patrons decided to allow |
pupils to come to the school without
paying tuition. At Utopia a reading j
lesson was heard the library exam- j
ined and a story told. The ^aaies of i
the School Improvement association!
' !
i discussed school entertainment with !
i ;
: the supervising teacher. The teacher i
not being well, all readings were i
(taught and ten she was sent to visit j
an excellent teacher nearby, while the
supervising teacher took the work.
At the teachers' meeting Miss Sease
made an excellent talk and the work
of all committees was nearly completed.
February 15-20.?The material for
the printed suggestions for fair and
field day exhibits was arranged. Field's
'TTTre Corn Lady," which. would make
every one want to be "just a country 1
school teacher," was read. At Garmany,
the supervising teacher took
the work while the primary teacher
was sent to dewberry to observe the
first grade teacher, who was most '
kind. This tead'ier had not been permitted
to observe during teachers' institute.
At Mt. Bethel two reading lessons
and a physiology lesson were
taught, eight minutes each, which is
more time tban this teacher usually
has to give. At Rutherford the superj
vising teacher -did all that was asked
j by telling a story at morning exercises,
! hearing the primer lesson and looking
over the classification of pupils. St.
Phillips was looked upon. Hunter-DeWalt
night school was taught. On a
visit to Mt. 'Pilgrim a story was told
and tbe Washington program enjoyed. I
As always, the mail was answered.
February 22-27.?Te teachers of
Oakland, where the visitor with pleasure
heard all the children read, and
Mollohon Mill school, where a geography
lesson was taught and a story
told, allowed the supervising tead.er
to come in, although those schools are
not yet a part of the public school system.
The financial standing of each
school in the county was estimated by j
:.vjr. wrown ana 1 luriusuea u..e re- j
marks. A letter to teachers and sev- j
enth grade examination questions were j
prepared. Several reading lessons {
taught at Hartford. Arriving at St.!
Phillips before the principal, the girls j
; and I swept that house. The super- j
i vising teacher remained for opening j
! exercises and then visited Fork sd'ool, I
w':ere several children are in classes
by themselves, which warrants putting
them up or back. The lumber
committee of the St. Phillips school
reported the promise of material. At
tJ'e good meeting of the dinner committee
for fair and field day, Mrs: L
.W. Floyd, chairman, tf~e supervising
teacher attended. Supplementary readers
i or Mt. Pilgrim and Monticello!
1 were ordered.
j Heretofore, in my monthly reports,
' I have told my impressions of schools;
so in this report I have given some of
the things that I do besides observe
j and suggest. You notice tliat greatest

"John Caldwell iCalhoun."
Jofcn Caldwell Calhoun was born in
a two-story frame (house in the Calhoun
settlement, in Abbeville district.
March 18, 1752. His father was Patrick
Calhoun, and his mother was Martha
i Caldwell. John grew up tall and slim,
witji bright eyes and tangled to air.
As a boy, he worked in the cornfield
by the side of his ifather. When John
was 12 years of age, he entered Moses
Waddel's school. Fourteen weeks were
given to study. Then ft is" eyes grew
weak and his books were closed.
John's father died when he was 14
years aid, and he went home to take
care cf his mother. S e saw t) at he
was pale and thin, and she ^ent him
to the woods to hunt and fish. When
he was IS i: e again entered school.
In two -years, ne was ready to enter
the junior class at Yale college. His
mind was bright and strong, and he
had learned to use his tongue. The
purity and honesty of his c'/aracter
made l.im the chief leader of-lie whole
body of students.
After he had finished the course o:
study at Yale, i' e spent three rears in
the study of law. He first practiced
in the little town of Abbeville.
Some years be ore this time Calhoun
saw the bright eyes of his little cousin.
Floride Calhoun, and could never forget
them. On January 11, 1811. there
was a great gathering of tne members
of the Calhoun family in the beautiful
hfvmp amen? the rice nlantations on
ti e lower Santee river. John and Floride
there began their long, happy life
'Calhoun was secretary of war from
1S17 to 1825, in President Monroe's
cabinet. Then the United States Military
academy at West Point was reorganized
by him and starred upon
the way to success.
Calhoun served for two terms as
vice president 01 ue unuea states.
He resigned the "vice presidency and
was sent to the senate of the United
States, in which body, in February,
1833, he made a great speech on the
Force bill. He loved the federal union
and wanted to preserve it, but justice
or tf:-e Soutn he also wished to secure.
When public duties did not keep him
in Washington, Calhoun spent his time
at Fort Mill, a simple home which me
built upon a beautiful liilltop, where
Clemson college is now located.
Conversation was the art in which
John C. CaL':oun surpassed all other
a? Anfn f t YY>,r\ Pv nof n rn Vi fi
IHT^U vl llio wt* ii nine. j ncnuxe ** was
affectionate. Generosity was
stamped upon his frank, i.on-est countenance.
lT>he kindness of a great hear*,
marked his manner. He was always a
manly, accomplished gentleman, Lovable
is the word that describes this
great Carolinian
To St. Phillip's churchyard, on the
26-tl.? of April, 1850, a great company
of Calhoun's countrymen followed his
body. A spreading magnolia tree and
a splendid sarcophagus keep continual
watch over ti-e resting place of John
Caldwell Calhoun, 'South Carolina's
greatest man. Eva Bolt, 6th Grade.

Dear Miss Goggans:?I am very
sorry to state that I can not get a
la-dy to take charge of the work in

my effort to secure one. I consider
ti':e work as one of the best to build

Miss Sadie Goggins, Xewberrv S. C.
Dear Miss Goggans:
It gives me pleasure to say that the
School Improvement association is
doing; a good work in Greenwood
county. Evidences of the fact is seen
as I mafce my annual visits ever different
sections of $ie county. Communities
that wer^.wice dull and lifeless
in school interest are now awako
<uid are doing their duty along all
Bd.ool lines. Coronaca, in particular,
has been greatly benefited by tie aid
of the association. This town was not
long since the deadest town and community
in school work in the county,
but they have taken on new life and
are now thoroughly alive in the interest
of tJ:-e children of the community.
They now have a nice school building
after one of the Clemson plans. They
have a school improvement associa
tion in this district which will continue
to show scoool improvement in tl.e
future. I could name other communities
that have been greatly benefited
by the School Improvement association.
Suffice it to say that te School
Improvement association is bearing
fruit in this county and is bound to
spread as a contagious disease.
Yours very respectfully,
Jno. F. Wideman.
