Friday, July 28, 1916.
The campaign meeting on Tuesday;
"was held at Utopia. The rains con-!

and Bush "river and Beaverdam creek
"were out of the banks and running
around the ends of the bridges and
the water was several feet deep at
some places in the roads, but nothing
c?n deter a candidate from going to a
political meeting. iWe often thought
that if they were just as energetic ana
dirtermined in looking after their owe
business as they are when they start
out after a little office they wou'. 1
- i
Iptobablv accomplish more. That :v
. *
some of us would.
But we started to write about fht
roads and the -creeks and the high water.
The road from Newberry to the.
Delad Fall is one that has had a top
dressing of gravel and fcere is anotne*
practical demonstration of the value
I of such work. This road even in the
face of the heavy and the constant
rains of the past several weeks is in
fine condition most of the way to
Dead Fall. And some places that before
this application were always
muddy and almost past traveling over
. are now in fine shape. Of course in
some places there are mud holes and
holes in the good portions of the
road that with. little work now would
. .be made good. x
But at the crossings of Bush river
ernd Beaverdam the approaches nevl
to be filled so as to make them pass \
able even in the midst of Jaigh water.
And the work could be done at ver>
lytle fost. The material is right there
and needs to be taken from the roafi

on the hills just away from-the river
and the creek.
This is one of the roads that Supervisor
Sample 'built on the cooperative
\ i
\ plan. The people along the way sent
J S their teams and drivers and hauled
the top dressing and made a good
N road out of what has heretofore been
a "very bad road in tne rainy season.
The meetimg was held in the beautiful
grove in front of the residence of
Mr. W. I. Herbert tand is one of the
most ideal places for a barfcecue or a
gathering of any kind. Tlie fine old
oaks and the cooling shade with no
>> , undergrowth make it an ideal picnic
place and then there is always served
od campaign occasions a fine barbecue.
There were not as many people present
as usual owing tc the high water
and the muddy roads. There are generally
a great many from the town
but, there were present this year
something like a hundred beside the
candidates and the speaking1 took
place as usual though it did not begin
until the afternoon.

In (Newberry county we would lika
to hear from the candidates on th<3
question of road improvement, and th<:
further important question of putting
the county on a cash basis. And further,
how they expect an apvropria

income of $32,000.00. These are live
questions and sensible ones. We think

Annual Report
Newberry (
Newbury, 3. C., July 25, 1916.
To the Citizens of Newberry:
In submitting our report for the
scholastic year 1915-1916 we -cannot J
go into details, but hurriedly refer to;
a few of the facts and conditions that
warrant us in saying that it was in 1
many respects the best year in the
-ihistOry cr the public school system
of 'Newberry.
The scholarship and discipline in all
the schools was excellent during the
past year. WA' marked harmony pre j
vailed among teachers, patrons and j
pupils. All of our teachers, we Nellie
ves worked faithfully and diligently.
| Itfuch interest was manifested in the
(practical phases, of education such -as j
domestic science, bookkeeping, gardening,
Audubon Society work, ore-'
tory and athletics, which things have
aided in building up a fine school
spirit. Our representative won nrsi
prize in oratory twice among the
high schools of the State.
There were forty-two members of
the graduating class this year?by far
the largest class in the history of
the school ami one of the larkest
classes in the history of the State.
The majority of these boys and girls

school on a basis of thirteen and a
half units, with the remark that It is
an -unusually high rating for a three
year high school course; some of the
four year high schools being entered
;at not more than fourteen units.
It should "be a matter of community
pride that all the members of the j
class of 1915 except one attended col- j
lege last session.

debtedness. The income from private '
sr.iir^ps this vear was $3,026.87 as j
against $1,763.88 the previous year.
With another good year in prospect
with the additional one mill tax voted i
last year we hope to he clear on debt 1
and have a balance to our credit at
the end of the next fiscal year. I
Last year two teachers were added |
the Hoge school, the Hoge patrons ,
themselves paying the salary of one
of them. The total private income,
from the Hoge school last year was <
$400.12 as compared -with $86 from j
the same source the previous year. I
The patrons and friends of Speers
Street and Boundary Street schools
raised considerable sums for the use
of the schools, whiui amounts are not ;
included in our fiscal report. They
amount to about $300 all told. The
fact that so much is being done in a
private way in the interest of education
and the schools in' our city is i. j
wholesome sign of a fine spirit among
the pepole in favor of the public
schools and a higher idealism in the
training 01 the young, and we feel
that we should not neglect the opportunity
of expressing our appreciation
3 J
for every service renuereu iulcuucvi .
to add to the efficiency of the "work in
the schools. f
The West End night school was a
means not only of offering an opportunity
to a great many who were
eager to learn, hut was also a mean^
of bringing additional revenue to the
school district. The income from the
night school enrollment was $86.10.
The 'Sitate donated $50 to the district
on account of the night schools. The
expense of conducting- me ui&jlic
schools was cnly $-18. It is a fact thar
a great many people learned to read
and to write through the efforts of
the evening school.
We are sad to chronicle in this report
of the untimely death of one of
our efficient primary teachers and
beloved friend, Mrs. J. E. Norwood,
