Yrankltnvllla Graded School Ha Good
Attendance Should be Larger.
The t ranklinville Graded school
is in the beat and most flourising con
ditoa that it has been in for some
time. Prot". D. M. Weatherly, Mrs.
T). M. Weatherly and Miss Margaret
McAlister are working haid, trying
to build up one of the best schools
in the county. They are doing good
work and much credit is due them
for the condition of the school, but
tVy can only do their part. It is
with the people of this or any other
district to theirs. We have a large
and commodious build' ng, good
teachers and pay our special school
tax for its support and while the at
tendance is much larger than it has
been for some time, yet there are
families who do not send their chil
dren to school, some of them can be
found on the streets and other places
in idleness, buch parents are raising
their children up in lignorance to be
drawers of water and hewers of wood,
so to speak. It is unfair to the
children; they are precious Jewels
which God has given them to care
for and protect and it is their duty
to use every oppoitnity with in their
reach to educate and develop their
minds so that they may make good
and useful citizens and bo prepared
to fight the great battles of life; to
be au honor to the State and a bless
ing to the community 111 which th.-y
live. It seems to us that if people are
willing to build school houses, and
pay tax to run schools they should
take advantage of the golden op
portunity that is before them to send
their children to school.
