Goods Roars Sentiment.
The most significant demonstration
the Zrova h of the sentiment for goo
roads was found in the enthusiasti
meeting hid here on Tuesday of th
Good Roads .\ssociation. Most of th
counties were well represented, an
there was manifested a height of et
thusiasm and a fertility of suggestio
never before experienced.
It was the sentiment of the speaker
that good roads are more that man
other things on which large sums ar
exoended. and that both the State an
the counties sbould make large appro
priations to this work of road improve
ment. And there is to be no halt at
simple expression. Legislators will b
labored with and plainly advised tha
failure to provide the means for road
building will be regarded as failure of
Iublic duty and will be treated accord
inglv. Great pressure is to be brough
to bear on the General Assembly now i:
session, to induce it to enact such law
as shall insure good roads throughou
the whole State.
It has taken years of persistent worl
by a few to bring public opinion to thi
degree of insistence, but the result c
their labors has been achieved, and thi
faster building of good highways is not
an absolute certainty. Time and agair
it has been demonstrated that what th(
oeople realy want they can alvays get
and good roads may be classed amona
the things that the people are deter
mined to have. A member of the Spar
tanburg delegation voiced this deter
mination when he said they wante<
$500.000 for gUd roads, and if the:
couldn't get it this year they would
keep on pressing the matter until the:
did get the required amount.

Improved Methoils of Examining Teachers.
>f The followtug- paper, read by Prof
I E,. J. Brown. of Clarendon county, va:
e received with marked approbation b3
e ithe Association of County Superintend
Sents of Fducaticn at the meeting recent
1, lv held in Columbia:
"What improvements should be made
;'in the method! of conducting Teacher's
The question presupposes the fact
that there are exsting defets in the
present, methods. aud further that ways
atnd means can be found to improve
upon them.
I desire to point out a few things
which. accordin:, to my opinion. would
be of great benefit. and a decided im
Iprovement over the present methods.
In tne first place, I would advocate most
strenuously, that at least two days time
be given for the examination. Let there
'be a greater number of questions on each
subject. expecially of the leading sub
jects, English. Mathematics, History
!and Geogrraphy. Let these questions
oe carefully prepared, and with a view
of giving every applicant for a teacher's
certiicate ample opportunity of britg
ing out and showing his or her scholar
ship, and general fitness for the teach
er's profession. The list of questions
as furnished periodically for these ex
aminations do not, as a rule. teua to test
the real ability of the candidate, and as
the list must be hurriedly taken, the
time is entirely too short to afford much
thought work. hence the more difficult
parts of the examination are slighted.
and sometimes omitted entirely.
I would also recommend that an allot
ment of time be given each subject, and
the amount of time and ,thought requir
ed to prepare a creditable paper be
based upon what an average candidate'
should be capable of.
Let the county superintendents, as far
as practicable. give out only one subject
at a time, all taking the same subject at
the same time, and at the end of the al
lotted period, let all papers be collect
ed, seeing that each Daper is properly
folded, and contains the name and ad
dress of each candidate, or his Droper
number in case that method should be,
thought preferable. This plan can be
readily carried out, if the superintend
ent will arrange to have a clock in view
of the candidates. Let the various sub
jects be detached along the perforated
lines and placed in envelopes and prop
erly labeled, which will greatly facili
tate the distribution of the cluestions,
thus giving the candidate the benefit of
a full period of time. This plan is far
better than the handing out to each
candidate a full sheet of questions, leav
ing him to go to work on any subject
he desires, and to spend as much time
or as little time as he feels disposed to.
The result frequently is that few ever
band in a complete set of answers.
Each teacher would spend his or her
time on the subjects of his or her choice,
leaving other subjects untouched, or at
best unfinished. This method gives I
rise to various kinds of apologies, or ex- I
cuses for poor and incomplete papers.
Comparatively few win first grade
certificates based strictly upon the mer
its of their papers, if the percentenge as I
outlined on the examination questions
be strictly followed. In fact, under the t
system of a one day's examination, it is
hard for the average candidate to win a t
second girade certificate if the percent
age plan be strictly adhered to. This
has forced upon County Boards the al
most absolute necessity of issuing certi
ficates where none where honesty won.
Or in many instances of issuing permits t
good until the next examination, simply
to be able to get teachers', the defects 1
being traceable to a large degree to the C
lack of suficient time to stand the ex
Another great trouble in conducting
examinations is the lack of the proper
facilities for bandling the candidates.
The examinations are generally con- I
ducted in the court bouses, and as a rule 1
bave very poor accommodations for the c
work. As one of the greatest and most a
important improvemenits, I would sug- f
gest that all teacher's certificates be is- t
sued by the State Board of Education. a
In my judgment, this could be affected I
by pursuing the following plan: Let the I
S'tate board of Education appoint an ex- s
amining board of specialists for the C
work. This board could be composed of a
qgoalifled county superintendents, mem
bers of county boards whose qualifica- t
tions warrant, and from leading school
superintendents aod teacher3 of recog
nized ability. In other words,
let the examining board be com
posed of the best talent to be
bad. On the dates appointed for I
the examinations, let the county super
inrtendents conduct them, collect the
papers by subjects, and tie them into I
neat packages, seeing that every paper ?
contains the name or number of the ap
plicant, the name of the county, or in l
brief, let any form of identitication be I
sufficient. Let all papers be forwarded ~
to the State Superintendent at the close
of the examination, in a similar manner
po the method employed in conducting
competitive examinations for Winthrop ~
and' Clemson collegss. Let the State'
Superintendent get together all papers
by subjects, and send to each examiner
as many papers as are deemed necessary
or expedient, parcelling them out to the I
specialists on the various subjects. These 1
experts having only one subject to deal
with could do the work more expedit
jously, and better than can be done by
the -arious County Boards. the mem-.
bert; of which frequently not practical
teachers, and probably never have bem..
and who must necessarily do their work
in an imperfect or careless manner.
Let these special examiners be paid a
reasonable sum for siuch services. The
Stt Stuperintendent as he receives the s
reports, tabulates them by counties, and '
upon his recommendations, together
with a report of grades made, the State y
Board can then issue State certificates
to those who are entitled to them, which
certificates could, and would be a pass
port for the holders thereof all over the
State. The advantages of such a plan
can hardly be overestimated. The hold
er of a State certificate would have many C
advantages that the present plan can
not afford. It would give them high ~
standing in the profession, and woufld I
entirely eliminate the trouble of having ~
their certificates endorsed in the various
counties they might thereafter teach in.
Others again who fail to make the
necessary pass marks, and whose grades I
are sufficiently high to warrant some
consideration, might, under recommen
'datipos by the County Board of thier
respectlye counties, be given a permit
or licernsg W tegeh nntil the niext exam
This plan might be subject to furthat
latitude in some deserving cases. The
idea is to stimulate teachers to the effort I
to hold a state certificate and should be
so arranged as not to cut down the force(
too quickly. I am aware that certain
schools having certain conditions sur-1
rounding them m~ust be provided for,
but that is no reason why an effort]
should net be made to build up or en
courage the organization of a large force
of better teachers.
Fyrthermore, I would recommend that1
should a pian as outlined be adopted,
thati notfce be given to every teacher in
the state holding a certificated granted
to any County Bo6ard in the past upon
an examination, that the same would be
.cancelled after dane year.. This would
giv a c year's time for special prepara
pior, gi would enable that cligss of
jeachers vwho have been having their
certificates renewed from year to year,
and sodorsed in a half dozen or more
counties until there is no further room
on which to register approval, time to
review their studies and fit and prepare
themselves for the general examina
I am extrerrely anxious to see some
method put into practice that will elim
inate a lot of the- defects we have fallen
into. I know from certain circumstanc
es and observations that some County
Boards are more lenient than others
1that it is a courtesy generally practic
ed~ for Coiynty Superintendents to ap
- prove the papers givren by other coun
ties. - The pla~n has prnvailed for years,
and there are scores of teachers hold
ing first grade certificates who are in
competent, and who have in some way
secured one. who persizt year in and
year out, in having it renewed until il
is literally worn out.
I am anxious to see the teaching pro.
fession keep bright and up-to-date it
i its work. and I must confess that the
present plan, while its imports are all
right, has become defective from the
way it has been worked, and to get out
of the old ruts some material change in
the existing methods is absolutely need
Let the State Superintendent have a
printed list, alphabetically arranged, of
all who obtain state certificates sent out
to each County Superintendent, giving
post office address. and any other data
deemed vroper. This list being in his
possession, could be frequently consu!t
ed with a view of securing competent
teachers. Further, he could consult it
and register those who should be em
ployed by his trustees. -and who would
not-need to go through with the usual
cumbersome plan of having certificates
Another advantage of this plan is that
trustees could have access to such print
ed lists, and could the better engage
their teachers, thus saving to the teach
ers large fees paid to information bu
reaus. All graduates of recognized col
leges who are teaching, or wuo propose
to teach, could qualify by -presenting
his diploma or other credentials either
to the Sta;e Board or through the Cou n
ty Superintendents. There would be a
complete roster of. eligible teachers,
whether qualifving through the exam
ination or by diplomas.
Let all certificates issued by the Board
be for a period of five years, subject to
renewal provided the holder has been
engaged in teaching throughout the
term. None will deny that we need a
more uniform standard than that now in
use. It has been altogether too easy in
the past to get certificates, especially
first grade ones, and those who, when
once they get them. persist in renewals,
and all effort at further scholarship
ceases in many cases. What ,I as well
as every other county superintendent
who is ambitious for progress desires,
is teaching force-to be well up on these
;ubjects and zealous-not merely school
keepers, but real teachers. With a low
tandard of scholarship we cannot hope
for great progress. We must elevate
,he standard of proficiency, and higher
gages will follow.
The plan outlined herein, or some
nodified form of it, would stimulate -
rreater interest and ambition on the
)art of hundreds of teachers, while the
lirones would either bestir themselves
;o attain to greater scholarship or be
!ome ashamed and drop out.
This plan would relieve the County
3oards of much responsibility, and
ould obviate the liability of being
harged with favoritism. Frequently
,andidates for teachers' certificates be
ng well and favorably known, relying
pon their general qualifications, do
iot make the necessary preparations,
rusting and believing that they will in
ome way be passed. I would recom
nend that these examinations be held
n June, immediately after the close of
he schools and colleges, thus giving
Mple time to examine the papers, issue
he certificates and give the- teachers
,n opportunity of securing positions be
ore September. Whether or not any 1
f the plans as outlined be adopted, I I
ni certainly in favor of a more thorough
xamination of not less than two days,
he certificates to be issued by the State
3oard, and the examinations to be held 1
a June. By reflection the advantages 1
f each idea is seen and appreciated.

of the Methodist ministers in South Car
olina. We noted recently that the pres
' idina elder of the Marion district. Rev.
E. 0. Watson. is now being paid a sal
ary of 82,500 a year. and be gets a fur
nished house free of rent. Many of the
charoes in the State are now paying
from $1.400 to $1.800 a year. with a par
sonage furnished. So it begins to look
like preaching is not such a bad job
after all, although few men seem to be
'going into the ministry these days. We
are glad to see this tendency to pay
preachers higher salaries. They are
worth every cent they get and more.

A Religious Author's Statement.
For several years I was afflicted with
kidney trouble and last winter I was
suddenly with a severe pain in my kid
neys and was confined to bed eight days
unable to get un without assistance. My
urine contained a thick white sediment
and I passed same frequently day and
night. I commenced taking Foley's
Kidney Remedy, and the pain gradually
abated and finally ceased and my urine
became normal. I cheerfully recom
mend Foley's Kidney Remedy. W. E.

Taft and the South.
President-elect Taft is making fine
headway in the affections of the people
of the-South. His utterances on his pol
icy of filling ffilces in the South have
excited much comment. Mr. Taft does
not. we take it, hope or intend to at
tempt to buy his way with federal pat
ronage. He simply wants the people of
this section to feel that it is as much' a
part of the national government as any
other section and that it is entitled to
the same careful consideration in the
appointment of officers as any other
section. In other words, the federal
offices in the South are not to be filled
with any sort of a man who happens to
be a Republican. We shall cling to our
political faith as strongly as ever, but
this will not prevent our admiring Mr.
Taft as the sensible, big-hearted presi
dent of the whole country.-Greenwood
