Dodds, the pastor in charge at Palmetto, filled his regular appointment the second Sunday. Mr. Stanley Simmons, of Ve rona, was a welcome visitor at the BaDtist Sunday school last Sunday. The superintendent, officers and teachers extend a welcome to all in reach, of what ever denomination. The Sunday school has not had to go into winter quarters for three or four years; the enrollment at times being over one hundred. The tax payers of Lee county have been called to meet at the court house March 24, at 3 p. m., to consider consolidating the schools. This is certainly a move in the right direction. Other counties in this and other states have proven the wisdom of consolidated schools and in that way have built up as good schools as our towns have. Noth ing so discourages desirable citi zens remaining in tne country as the condition of the one, and perchance two, teacher schools. Nothing so interferes with pro gressive people moving into the country. Lee county’s rural schools are better than could be expected considering the many disadvantages with which they have to contend. This is due to the faithful public school teach ers and county superintendent. If the tax payers would visit some of the schools and see the condition: poorly heated, lighted and ventilated, crowded and often unsanitary surroundings, then one, or perhaps two, teach ers attempting to do the work of four or six, they would decide it was poor economy to continue the primitive system. Few im provements could help a countv more than modern buildings, sufficient teaching force and good transportation to school. The good roads movement is now well under way; let’s give the children a chance while they re main under home influence and can be useful to the parents, thus saving much money to the communities that would prob ably be spent in sending the children from home to be edu cated.
