He is report ed to have died from membran eous croup, being ill just a short time. In this sad hour, as they grieve over the loss of this dear little boy, these fond parents may rest assured thattheirmany friends enter with them into their sorrows as deeply as they can. It is but another little one added to heaven's great roll, for it was the Master who said "Suf fer little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the kingdom of heaven." The Independent extends sym pathy to the parents in this sad hour. t- : ', ' , Attendance officer W. R. Nick-J les is making a personel survey of the schools of the county to enable him to administer the at tendance law in a sane aim yrao tical manner. He informs us that he is directing his efforts now towards getting into school the children who have, for var ious reasons, never been to school He is going to make a drive then for the regular attendance of all. The first week's report of teach ers show a splendid enrollment, and the teachers assure him that the attendance law is going to be observed. Mr. Nickles will visit every school in the county. The Schools. Reports coming in from the various schools indicate the larg est enrollment ever had for the first aeek This shows that ev ery body is co-operating in the observanse of the attendance law. The teachers are hereby again reminded of their duty in securing, first the enrollment of the pupils, and second, their reg ular attendance. No day should pass without the teacher calling attention to the importance of regular attendance. The children will bear the message home. It is being illustrated every day that children want to go to school; and that they like to go. The thing that has stood in their way so long is the indifference of their parenls, and in some case the absolute unwillingness of the parents. A parent asked me recently to excuse his 16 year old boy from attending and I asked him on what ground, and he said he needed the boy's work. And I asked him if he wasn't done gathering and he replied that he was, but he had a lot of hauling to do and needed the boy for that this winter. I suggested to him that this would be the last school we could compel him to send, and I thought I would be doing the boy a great service if I could get him in school. The parent agreed to start him next day. The pathetic part of all this story is that this 16 year old boy is in the 4th grade. Excuses are diminishing and the schools are going to be full this.winter. I regret that we are not able to meet the demands for seats. The money available for this year has already been appropria ted. We hope to furnish seating to their needed capacity every house in the county next year. The teachers' meeting will be held Saturday, November 26 at Selmer. Every teacher in the county is expected to attend; and bring a written report covering the first month's work, and gen eral school conditions in the com munity. The program will ap pear next week. - Terry Abernathy, Co. Sup't Paint C1othM.Wlre." Give the new wire clothesline two coats of white enamel.
