of the success of the experiment, a list
of questions was sent to each teacher.
The answers were as follows:

the school has meant a great dleal to
him. On the twelfth iight, at the clos

to continue the school every Saturday
night. They seemed to think that the
school was a great benefit to the com
imunity. Many expressed it as being
"Just the thing to stir up the enthusi

Misses Alinnie ilubanks, Edna Clay

Advantage lecelied Fromt Attending
Laurens ('ounty Teachers'
In brief, we hope to gIve a few prac
tical, not visionary, advantages de
ied from our Teachers' Association.
To our mind, the advantages may be
lvided into three main groups: in
spirational, educational and social.
The first, then, that of inspiration.
There is a psychological result in the
very meeting and mingling together
of bodies of men and women, enthused
with their work. No one can come
away from any meeting, he it educa
tional or religious, without having
new hopes and greater Ideals. When
ninety or a hundred teachers from
Laurens county meet together In a
body, and each is radiant with hope
and success, the very atmosphere of
the meeting is full of that spirit. One
cannot help but go away with a
stronger faith in his work. Tie teach
