Sit Holl School.
After bolng moved from place to
place in the neighborhood our school
was finally located at Shlloh about
the year 1S80.
Tho first building was a one-room
house 14 feet by 20 fo<n and was built
about one hundred yards from where
it now stands. Some years after this
a larger building was placed on the
church grounds. As tbe number of
pupils increased, the patrons bought
land on the east side of the road,
moved the old building, built another
room to it, and employed two teachers.
I^ater, we voted a special two mill
tax, built a third room, and employed
three teachers.
"When the High School Act was
passed, Shlloh, among the first, took
advantage of the appropriations, and
became Shlloh High School. For the
lack of pupils in the high school de
partment we W< re compelled to drop
the High School in 1912, after keeping
it for three, years. Last year we voted
another two mill in\ and took advan
tage of the Rural Graded School Act,
henco our school is known as the
Shiloh Graded School. This sesson
we have eighty-four pupil* enrolled,
ten grades, and a sovtn month's
school. Wo have raised twenty-three
dollars by means of a play and pur
chased maps, gle/bes and other equip
ments; also increased our library with
fifteen dollar's worth of now books.
There are fourteen pupils taking the
School Journal. The following boys

Kbenezer Shliool.
lObenezer school is one of the oldest
schools in the upper part of I.aurens
county. It gets Its name from the
A. It. P. church that was organized
here about seventy years ago by
Messrs David Stoddard, .lohn Mock
and others. For many years it was
only a log cabin. Among 'be first
teachers of that age were Rev, C. It.
Stewart. William Stoddard and Miss
Nan Henderson. Some years after
the war between the states, the pa
trons repaired the old church build
ing in which the school was then
taught. In 1904 this building was
burned and so a new- school house was
erected. Though small, it is a very
comfortable building, it is furnish
ed with maps, globe, library, etc.
Our school is now being taught by
Miss Rosalie Wheeler of Prosperity.
The number Of pupils enrolled is
thirty-eight. There are nine grades
and the school term Is six months,
(hie of our girls, Lulfl Mae Hender
son, is going to join the Tomato club
