The School Buiding Question.
Editor of the Ne\^s:
If you witl^allow space in your
valuable paper for a few remarks
on the school building situation
just now demanding the eanrest at-
tention and cooperation of our cit-
izenship, let the be submitted for
the-consideration «f our people.
-It has long since been acknowl-
edged by all conversant with the
facts and by all interested in the
welfare of our public school, that
the building equipment is wholly
inadequate to care for the school.
This condition has existed for at
least six years, growing steadily
worse year by year. Our people
have admitted it, discussed it,
shrugged their shoulders, and pas-
sed on t build railroads, construct
and put in operation creameries
and vote bonds for a waterworks
system, All the time seemingly
with a fixed delusion that a mod-
ern, up-vto-date,1* commodious and
comfortable school building was
out of the question.
And yet the vbry first evidence
of a thriving, cultured, prosperous
community is it educational facil-
ities, and yet the worth of the na-
tion, of a state, or-a community is
not determined by its navy, its
commerce, its railroads, or bonds
but by its men, of culture, integ-
rity and ideal manhood.
Let us compare ourselves with
some ofour neighbors. Graham for

A disease that comes on gradually without the knowledge of the victim; its
symptoms are so trifling they are misunderstood; hence proper treatment is
too-often delayed beyond the possibility of recovery.

Used when the trouble is in the early stage it quickly checks the progress of the
disease, strengthens the failing kidneys, stimulates the torpid liver and drives out
the paralyzing uric acid poison through the bladder and bowels. To those who
suffer from kidney disease in the more advanced stage it is^f priceless value.

Abner Rhoades was the son of
William Rhoades and Sarah J.
Rhodes - a*td- vflas bora ia Henry-
county Tenn. March 22, 1832.
About 1857 he, with the family,
moved to Tarrant county, Texas,
where his father died, leaving the
wdowed mother with seven boys
and two grls.
About 1860 he,, with the family"
moved to Jack county where be
lived till his death. May 25, 1866,
he was married to Sarah E. Brura-
mett in this county, the daughter
of Wliborne Brummett and Sarah

He possessed great patience and
reasoning power. He worked for
the best interest of his family and
was truly sincere to them. He
The first one erected about 12
years ago, was then a better build-
ing for school purposes than our
battle scarred veterans of the ages.
The late building there is the pride
of the town. An elegant truseture
costing about $20,000, equipped
for school uses with modern equip-
ment. They should be proud of it.
It is a living monument to their
interest in the education of their
boys and girls, young men and
Our school building is not, and
has nevr been suitable for a school.
It is inconvenient, iliarranged,
hard to keep heqtcd and comforta-
ble, with many stairways, a verita-
ble deathtrap in case of fire, and I
am in formed by^sorae reliable
stone masons of inferior construc-
tion and actually dangerous. These
reasons alone should condemn it;
but there are more, It is not suffi-
cient for our hneeds *
The school is growing every year
and wil lcontinue to do so. A build-
ing that would do ia 1890, twenty
years ago, is manifestly is not the
bmlding for 1910 Of course the
old building has some sentiment
clinging around it. It has memo-
rial that are sacred, - and its old
walls call back to many of us days
that will never come back, dayr of
laughter and song, of faces of loved
ones gone hence, of friends who
boys and girls; from the elastic
step of young men and women, a
sentiment of love of pride and! «£<»
hope; ra sentiment of aspiration j
that they may come to fill our 4*4
places as men andwomen of earnest y
endeavor, of quiet culture, and ^ y
unfaltering courage, and it is in Ay
behalf of this living sentiment of j y
young life, so dear and so full of j
latent possibilities , these boys and
girls who bring happiness and love
into the home, and are the bright-
ness of its life,that I wiyte this ar-
gument and appeal for a school
structure ‘ of modern build and
equipment, and "for its construc-
tion—now «J. P. Simpson.
