10 DISCUSS SCHOOL
* On Monday afternoon of this week
quite a number of the citizens of the
Euharlee community met in the audi
torium of the Bartow Rural High
advanced higher than for years past.
Now we have just happened to the
extraordinary good luck of buying for
s[>ol cash a whole lot of those goods
at something nearly like the old prices
from the third largest wholesale house
<n the United States that always puts
on a January spot cash sale at prices
rtduced 10 to 35 tier cent. Those goods
will come in some where between 10th
and 15th of January. So you just be
ready for them when they come, for
we will sell them just like we bought
or way below any dealer in Carters
ville. But in the meantime we have
plenty of other goods at prices that
will enable you to make all your
quarters do the work of 35c or 40c, for
we will continue to sell 0 spools Coats
thread for 25c, 6 spools Coats silk fin
i ill crochet cotton for 25c ana Coats
and O. N. T. mercerized crochet cot
ton in all sizes at 10c a ball and 6
bars Octagon or Ivory soap for 25c,
7 packs Star Naptha Washing powders
for 25c, Malaca plated table spoons at
20c and .Malaca plated tea spoons at
10c a set and the $1.25 plated krrives
and forks at Ssc a set and some larger
$1.75 crochet quilts at $1.35 and
plenty of sea island bleachings, Canton
flannels, outings, cheviots, suitings,
percales, ginghams, calicoes, poplins,
galateas, madras, oil cloths, and many
other things at lower prices than any
body offers or wishes to sell you. We
have received a few of SI.OO outing
gowns to go at 75c each, and some 75c
black satteen petticoats at 50c, and
$1.50 black lingerie effect petticoats
at SI.OO each. And while corsets have
advanced 25 per cent in price we were
fortunate enough to get in on ground
floor, and buy a very large lot of the
Jackson C. C. corsets at the old price
and will still for a long time sell them
at old popular price of 50c and SI.OO
each, and you find them far superior
to the average 50c and dollar corsets
before the advance, and which will
now sell for 65c and $1.25. If you want
your moeny to do good service come
and get the benefits of these reduced
prices at HARDAWAY’S.—(advt.)
THR BARTOW TRIBUNE, JANUARY 4, 1917..
school at the call of. Mr. Henry Milam,
who now' has charge of the school.
The purpose of this meeting was to
| place before the .people of the com
munity some plans for its weliare and
for the advancement and development
of the school both for the good the
community and for the entire county.
This was a real community meet
ing. The ones present had the spirit
and Mr. Milam, who is always awake
to progress, put a great deal of en
thusiasm into the pnes present. He
used the blackboard in bringing his
.message to his people. On one side of
this board was this question ’‘What
vil! you do with the year 1917?”
Under this was this quotation, "A ship
without a rudder drifts, a man without
a purpose is like a ship without a rud
der.” On the other side of this board
the "Ten Tests of Progress” given be
'ow was written. They were discussed
very fully and applied to the local
community, fn many of these tests
the Euharlee scores well. On the oth
ers they are working.
Ten Tests of Progress.
1. Proper church and Sunday school
2. A three-teacher school —with in
struction in agriculture and domestic
science and a school library patronized
by both old arid young.
3. A community hall or auditorium
in connection with the school in which
the community can have community
4. A local farmers’ organization.
5. A club of fa:m women.
6. A community league, meeting
quarterly for the discussion of all com
7. A community fa upheld each fail.
S. Young people organizations—in
cluding literary, social and industrial
9. A credit union or mutual savings
and loan association tax.
The matter of getting the State Col
lege of Agriculture to give us a school
for farmers and farmers’ wives was
discussed. All those present
themselves as being very anxious for
this school. They realized the value of
such an opportunity individually, to
the community and to the county. The
courses most sought after are Farm
Management, Seed Selection, Stock
Raising and Fertilizers.
Arrangements will be made for this
course by Mr. M£lam when he with
several farmers from over the county
attend the Short Course at Athens for
a few' days next week.
Miss Burton, the County Home Dem
onstration Agent, called the woman of
the community together at this same
meeting. Though the w'eather was very
bad. quite a number of the women
were present and entered heartily into
the spirit of the meeting.
For a number of years the State Col
lege has been conducting schools for
the farmers. Now we think it is time
j to begin with a school for the women.
The ladies present were very much in
terested in this and Miss Burton wii
J try to make arrangements for a school
j for the women at the same time of the
i one for the men. Courses will be
| given in cooking, balanced meals,
irouitrv, dairying and hotde manage
These* courses will be open not only
Lo the farmers and farmers' wives of
the Euharlee community but the peo
ple of the entire county are urged to
take advantage of this opportunity. It
is simply one of the services the Bar
tow Rural High school is
render to the county.
Co-operative buying and selling was
fully discussed and some definite steps
will be taken about this in the near
future. The people of the community
were very much interested in this
phase of the work. Many of them will
be compelled to buy feed stuffs on ac
count of the floods last summer.
The people of the community were
so well pleased with the idea of com
ing together in this manner and dis
cussing ways and means for communi
ty development that it was decided
to make this meeting a permanent af
fair, meeting at least quarterly. The
social life will be stressed, as well as
the .financial side, in these meetings.
This was a meeting of a very pro
gressive kind and The Tribune hopes
this may be a starter for such meet
ings in other communities. If we
could have such meetings as this in
the various communities and then
have a big county meeting it would be
We want to urge the people of the
county to get behind the management
oi the county high school. This institu
tion seems to be putting forth every
effort possible to serve the county in
every possible way. It Is a great un
dertaking, it is a great movement. We
must support it.
