Presbyterian College of Soutth Carolina There are0 thirty-five students from Laurens county in tile Presbyterian College of Southl Carolina. As a rule, those who completed thme graded school at home anld entered the regular F~reshi man class are dloinig well in their work. 'Some of them are among tile b'est students in college, making high marks and entering actively Into the life and spIrit of the institution. But many of those -w1 o did not complete the gtraded school hefore entering and have either Sub-Fresh man or irregu lar work are not doing so well, which goes to prove that a student should take his regular preparatory work in a good graded school and complete the course before entering college. Plhe college appreciates very much the liberal -patronage it receives from Laurens county. It is an institution our people may well feel proud of. The beautiful new science hall and library Is almost completed. In it there are 7,000 square feet devoted to scilence. The laboratories are well equipped and a new gas-plant has been installed in connection with them. There is 4,000 square feet for library purposes, which will give ample space for reading and study rooms In connection with the It brary. 'The gymnasium is complete and is in use by the students. It has a clear floor space 40 by 70 feet, 25 feet in tile ceiling. Tile floor is of hardwood laid oil concrete, with the sleepers"im bedded in tar and sand. 'In contection with the main gyninasium there is ai other room -for games, and a - physical director's ofilce, besides shower baths, toilets and dressing rooms. Next year promises to' be the most successful year in tile history of the college, and tile president lo)e5 to welcoine this fall a still larger num ber of Laurens county boys. D. M. Douglas.

B. L. Parkinson at the helm. Under his di rection and management the school has moved forward quietly and stead ily. October 18. was the first event of importance in the school year, this be ing the (late of the County Fair. Our pulils, by grades, took prominent parts in the pageant, Uncle Sam's birthday, and the awarding of the prizas found the tenth grade, which represented Uncle Sam and his attendants, with a blue ribbon and the first grade with a red ribbon. Following close upon the fair, came the Teachers' Institute, from the fourth to the seventh of November, during which time the teachers from all over the county had the opportunity of ex alulning our building, observing our teachers at work, and of attending splendid lectures .by Messrs. Hand, Swearingen and Harms. Among the helpful things that have marked our chapel exercises this year, Is the flag salute that we have all learned; the German songs by the tenth grade; celebrations by the pupils throughout the school, of the birthdays of Lee, Jackson, Lincoln and Wash ington; appropriate Thanksgiving ex ercises, ending with a collection of $61.90 for the Belgians' Relief Fund, and lectures by the ministers of the town and other noted lecturers. In November the Timrod Literary so ciety was organized and in addition to tile fortnightly meetings, we are preparing a public program to be giv en by especially chosen members of the society. In athletics we have been actively engaged in organizing tennis clubs, baseball teams, both being branches of a well-organized Athletic Association. In the near future we expect to have a tennis tournament and a series of ball games. Thus far we have had only a few en tertainients, chief of which was the concert given by the Metropolitan1 Conl cert Company on the evening of Feb ruary 2011th, and "flow the Vote was \%", by the tenth grade. We are looking forward however with inter est to the presenltation of two Latin play.,;, "A Ioman Wd (Ii figs" by the teth grad :111d "A Itoman S'lhoo! ," by the eighth grade. In conclusion a few' words muil1st he sai ol in regard. to the orgaiization and Illpplies of our1 school. A fine set of maps have been pclwhased; twenty new books have been added to the 1i brary; tihe library has been eatalogued and we have is ou r librarIan, M.\fiss Emly .lvei.
