7?. Mr ANS DAYrS, RDITot.
Graded High Sohools.
Mr. Blenj. R. Stuart has written anI
interesting article to the Abbeville
Press and 1Panner on schtools, tld we
have reprodtced it. In several points!
we heartily concur with Mr. Stuart,
especially RA to not tinkering too
much with the school law as it now
stands. Tho people are begimning to
Understand it, and it vould be wrong
to make too inally changes. We be
lieve that ele ntary i nstruction
should be forover ree.' Tle State is
poor hut, individuals are poorer, aid
the chihlt'cir must be educlIed h) the
Stato if the parelts are tuable to pay
for them. As to t lhe 11phu of Iaivint
high schools ill every county, we do
not conlsider it IIsible at present..
At soni filti.tre a thill%, Iere slol 1(e a
high School inl evcly County town,
with a eu IrienlI ml) above that pre

to become feeders of such anl inst if -
tion. As ive have previotusly n11111.1
tained, the school system wilWl not he
perfect until it ias f'rce colimtion
schools in every ieighborlhood,
free high schools in1 every. couniy
town, and, to cap ill, ia free university
such as Cali f'ornia enjoys.
We are utterly opposed to the plan
,of clirging any tuition fees in the
lower Irlrades. And even in higher
-schloOls we would protier the system
suggested by Mr. Stuart for Jowei
schools, and11 already inl vogue ill many
locailities, of having tile school 111)so
lutely free for soveral months and
absolutely a pay school for the rest of
the time. The State should deal in 110

certain branches are taught as at a

dlemiandedl. There is no0 hal f-an d--hlf1

have a pay school with a free school
as a feeder. U~p to ai certint poit

the pupil pays full chtarge for thte ex
