VAPO-MENTHA SALVE, which not only prevents but relieves Croup, 
Pneumonia, Coughs, Colds and Affections of the air passages. 

Seep it Handy. 

BEAME'S VAPO-MEHTEA SALVE is rubbed on the' wriest, and is 
absorbed through the pores of the skin, breaking up the congestion, al- 
laying inflammation, and at the. samo time the body heat releases the 
medicated intisentic sapors that ave breathed internally, opening the 
air passages of the lead and bronchial tubes. 

REAP TSTBAT PBOT, C. C. TJTKXfJHT SAYS: 

! "It' gives me pleasure to: sts-.te that we have used Dr. Brame's Croup 
?>.Kd .Pneumonia Salve -in o<ir hqine for several years ar>d have found by 
actual test that it is a preparation of decided merit. We could not keep 
house without this remedy at hand." 

"We have found that it is not only a most excellent remedy in the 
treatment of colds and catarrhal affections, but it acts as a prophylactic 
as well. It is so meritorious in every way that if once used, it is used 
always." 

(Signed) C. C. WRIGHT, County Supt. Public Schools, 

Hunting Creek, N. C, July 14, 1915.

TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION: 

Gentlemen: I herewith respectfully submit to yon my 
annual report of the Public Schools of Wilkes County for the 
scholastic year ending June 30, 1917. 

_ I desire to congratulate yon upon the success of the work 
during the past year. In some respects it has been the most 
notable in the history of the work in the county. I wish to 
call your attention to the table showing the progress of public 
education in our county since the year 1900. It is indeed a 
wonderful story and one of which we are justly proud. 

With best wishes for the continued success of the work in 
our county, I am. 

Most sincerely yours, 

C. C. WRIGHT, 

County Supt. of Schools. 
Hunting Cheek, N. C, June 30, 1917. 



TO THE PEOPLE OF WILKES COUNTY : 

Feeling that it is a duty we owe to the public to give an 
account of the progress of public education in the county each 
•year, and believeing that the patrons of the public schools, 
the school officers and the friends of education will be pleased 
to receive this information, and that a better knowledge of 
what our schools are doing will tend to create more interest 
in them we gladly present to you this our fourteenth annual 
report trusting that the work done and the results achieved 
merit ami may receive your approval. 

Very truly yours, 

C. C. WRIGHT 

County Supt. of Schools. 
Hunting Creek, N. C, June 30, 1917. 



How the Schools of the Southwest Are Saving' Money and Se- 
curing School Libraries. 



A few years ago a teacher out in Texas wanted a school library. His 
patrons were poor and his board of trustees did not see the need of a 
library. So it looked like he wasn't going' to get it. 

It occurred to this teacher that there were hundreds of books in his 
■community that were entirely discarded, though in other communities 
they were used. Why couldn't these discarded books be exchanged for 
books that would be useful to the community? They could be. 

The idea of this teacher developed into an institution called the 
Southern Book Exchange, located at Austin, Texas. This firm gathers 
discarded books from communities throughout the southern and western 
states, paying twenty per cent, of the new price of the books if cash is 
desired or thirty per cent, if other books are desired in exchange. The 
used books are re-sold at greatly reduced prices. 

Thus, in Texas, the basis has been established For supplying the 
.schools with used books at low prices and taking up the discarded books 
in exchange. 

The teachers of Texas so heartily approve the work of the Southern 
Book Exchange tha# the firm is spreading its business into all the states 
of the South and West. If you are interested in securing «. school library, 
reference works or school and College text-books at low prices, or if you 
have discarded books to sell, you should write to the Southern Book 
Exchange, Austin, Texas, -asking: for their catalogs and that you be placed 
on their regular mailing list.

Feeling that the subject of spelling was being neglected in 
some of our schools, and realizing its importance and hoping to 
.arouse a greater degree of interest in this matter our Board 
of Education has decided to give an award of honor to each 
pupil in the public schools of the county who was perfect in 
spelling for the entire term. This experiment has already 
demonstrated it worth and is to become a permanent feature 
of the educational work of the county. The following is a list 
of those who received these awards of honor.

TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION. 



The meetings of the Teachers* Association have been well 
attended during the past year. Practically all of the teachers 
of the county are members of this body and take an active 
part in the work. These meetings have played no little part 
in the progress which our county has made along educational 
lines in the past decade. The have enabled the teachers to 
meet and to know each other. They have given them higher 
ideals, greater inspiration, and more love for the work in 
which they are engaged. The colored teachers have an asso- 
ciation which meets regularly and has done great good for 
the schools of that race.

RURAL LIBRARIES. 



We now have one hundred and fifty-eight libraries in the 
county, one in every school both white and colored, and two 
hundred and seven supplements have been placed in these. 
It is a source of much gratification to see how extensively these 
books are being read by both parents and pupils. I desire 
to take this opportunity to extend my sincere and heartfelt 
thanks to the friends of education who have so greatly aided 
us in this library work. Without this aid many of our libraries 
which have gone into th schools of the county would not have 
been established. Wilkes County, by the way, has more ori- 
ginal and more supplementary libraries than any other county 
in the State. 

In addition to these we have placed six second original 
libraries as allowed by the General Assembly of 1915. We 
have all the libraries both original and supplementary to which 
our county is entitled under the law and have on hand a 
number of applications waiting for the State aid to become 
available in December 1918. This, I take it. is one of the most 
unmistakable signs of progress along the lines of educational 
development, and one of the strongest indications that our 
poeple are becoming vitally interested in the success and 
welfare of their children, and are becoming rapidly alive to 
the vast importance of placing the world's best literature in 
their hands. Te child who has access to a well-selected library 
has a decided advantage over one less favorably situated. 
This thing of libraries for the public schools is vastly more 
important than many of us with more books than we can read 
realize. Probably we do not stop to think that there are 
heundreds of pupils who hunger and thrist after good read- 
ing who, idle away the long winter evenings longing for 
something to read but without the opportunity to satisfy that 
longing. It is for these children tha books are necessary, 
books o feed their starving minds, books to incite them to 
intellectual growth, books to make them thinking men and 
women . 



CERTIFICATES OF MERITS. 



The award of certificates of merit to all who were per- 
fect in attendance during the past year played no little part 
in the increased enrollment and attendance here. There were 
seven hundred and eighty-six children to receive these certi- 

(30) 



fieates of merit, and they came to get them at the County 
Commencement from one end of the county to the other. This 
is but one instance of many that might be cited to show the 
ever-increasing interest on the part of our people in all things 
that pertain to the education of their children. It shows un- 
mistakably that they are determined to give their children 
a better chance in the race of life than was alloted to them. 
This feature of the work will »e continued in the schools dur- 
ing the coming year. 



THE COUNTY COMMENCEMENT. 



In casting about for ways and means to further improve 
the schools of the county our Board decided this year to hold 
the County Commencement in sections. Accordingly the vari- 
ous townships were arranged in four divisions, and a com- 
mencement held in each as follows: At Mount Pleasant on 
April 7th, at Wilkesboro on April 14th, at Ronda on May 5th, 
and at N. Wilkesboro on May 12th. Without an exception 
these were well attended and each was a success beyond the 
most sanguine expectations of its promoters. Contests in 
reciting and spelling were held and medals were awarded to 
the winners. On these days teachers, sehoolcommittecmen and 
those interested in public education gathered from ad parts of 
the county and witnessed the graduating exercises of the class 
of 1917, one hundred and forty-seven strong, from the com- 
mon schools. Each graduate was presented with a diploma 
certifying that the holder had completed the common school 
course. These were indeed gala days for the people of Wilkes 
and were in keeping with the educational development of the 
past few years. To my mind this is the most forfward move- 
ment of our people along educational lines yet undertaken. 
The County Commencement will be a permanent feature in 
the educational work of our county and no doubt will be in- 
strumental in inspiring many of our boys and girls to remain 
in school who would otherwise drop cut in the lower grades. 
No doubt a number of these will go through the County High 
School thus securing the diploma given on completion of the 
eleventh grade, while seme of these will go on to college and 
complete theid education. Who can tell what possibilities ara 
wrapped up in the County Commencement? 

(31) 



THE READING CIRCLE. 



in 



This circle embraces practically every active teacher _ 
the county. We have one hundred and twenty-three teachers 
in the comity who have completed the four years' course and 
who have been given diplomas from the State Department of 
Education. Many others have completed one, two or three 
years in this course and have received their certificates of 
merit. 

This is the largest Reading Circle in the State we are told. 
This is indeed encouraging and it shows conclusively that our 
teachers arc determined to keep abreast with the times and 
have realized that in order to keep pace with th progress along 
educational lines they must identify themselves with every 
effort for professional improvement. 



THE WORK OF THE YEAR. 

The year just closing has been the most successful one' in 
the history of the work here. 

The enrollment and attendance have really been pheno- 
menal when we consider the percentage enrolled and in at- 
tendance in the county as a whole. In the increase in the val- 
uation of school propery, in the number of painted school- 
houses and in many activities the progress has been truly 
gratifying. 

During the year we have increased the number of our 
supplementary libraries. We increased the number of houses 
with bells, a number of buildings have been erected while 
others have been repaired- 

Our county high schools at Wilkesboro and Ronda have 
done good work this year. These schools give free tuition 
to all public school teachers and to those above the seventh 
grade. The school at Ronda has a course of study covering 
two years while tin 1 school at Wilkesboro covers a period of 
four, preparing the student to enter college. 

A well-equipped dormitory is in operation in AVilkesboro 
where good board is furnished at $12.00 per month. At Ronda 
good board may be obtained in private families at reasonable 
rates while cottages are rented to those who wish to board 
themselves. 

By means of circular letters, correspondence, the local 
press, the telephone, through visits and personal interviews I 
have endeavored to keep in close touch with the work this year. 

(32) 



Awards of honor were again presented to those who had 
been perfect in spelling, and one hundred paid ninety-six chil- 
dren were present at the County Commencement to receive 
these. This was nineteen per cent increase over the number 
of a year ago. 

An interesting feature of the Commencement exercises 
was the awards of gold medals to five children who had at- 
tended school every day for seven years. 

A colored commencement was held at Wilkesboro on April 
28th and was largely attended by the colored people from all 
sections of the county. Twelve diplomas of graduation were 
issued, eighty-five certificates of merit were given for perfect 
attendance, thirty awards of honor were presented for per- 
fect spelling during the term. 

Another feature of the educational work was the certi- 
ficate plan in the school libraries. To every pupil m the public 
schools of the county who had read not less than fifty books 
from the library during the year was awarded a library certi- 
ficate. Twenty-six certificates were given this year. This will 
also become a permanent feature of the educational work in 
the county. 

Hundreds of debates, spelling matches, entertainments and 
parents' meetings have been held during the year. School 
fairs were held in some districts. The State Board of Agri- 
culture at its semi-annual meeting in June of last year, and 
also at its meeting in December, made an appropriation for 
the purpose of encouraging the holding of these fairs. 

In conclusion I wish to express my grateful appreciation 
of the assistance and cordial co-operation of the members of 
the Board of Education, the clergy, the bar, the press, the 
school committee, the teachers and friends of education all 
over the county who have given to me and to the car.se of 
education their most loyal support. 

With thankfulness to God for His blessing upon the edu- 
cational work of the year now closing, and relying upon Him 
for Divine guidance may Ave rededieate ourselves to the great 
task which lies out yonder in the future before us. May the 
friends of popular education be aroused to a sense of their 
duties, their responsibilities, and their opportunities. Let no 
one be content until proper educational facilities are provided 
for all, a comfortable building properly equipped and above 
all a teacher trained for the work, one whose personality can 
touch, inspire and direct the boys and girls of the State; 
teachers whose lives are in every way an inspiration to their 
pupils and which will point them to higher, puxer and nobler 
things. (33)

1 believe in boys and girls, the men and women of a great 
to-morrow: that whatsoever the boy soweth the man shall 
reap- I believe in- the curse of ignorance, in the efficacy of 
schools, in the dignity of teaching, and the joy of serving 
another. I believe in wisdom as revealed in human lives as 
well as in pages ofa printed book ; in ability to work with the 
hands as Well as to think with the head; in everything that 
makes life large and lovely. I believe in beauty in the school 
room, in the home, in daily life and out-of-doors: 1 believe in 
laughter, in love, in all ideals and distant hopes that lure us on. 
I believe that every hour of every day we receive a just 
reward for all we are and do. 1 believe in the present and its 
opportunities, in the future and its promises, and in the divine 
joy of living.— EDWIN OSGOOD GROVER.

The Pencil Sharpener (shown hcrc> 
is the best on the market. It does not 
waste the pencil or break the lead 
and makes a sharp, perfect point on 
both hard and soft pencils. It saves 
time and schoolroom confusion. 

The Plan: Many of youi; pupils 
are buying 5 cent pencils for their 
own use and you can easily have 
them buy these pencils of you for a. 
week or so, instead of buying them 
elsewhere. Pupils will also sell 
several of the pencils for you, to 
their relatives and friends. In fact 
it is easy to dispose of the 3 dozen 
in less than a week even in a small 
school. 

Please use coupon below. 

If you do not care to avail yourself 
of this opportunity please hand to 
some other teacher. Thanks.

What 15c Will Bring You From The Nation's Capital 

for The little matter of 15c in stamps or coin will bring you the Path- 
finder for 13 weeks on trial. The Pathfinder is an illustrated weekly, 
published at the Nation's center, for the Nation; a paper that prints 
all the news of the world and tells the truth and only the truth; 
now in its 23d year. This paper fills the bill without emptying the 
purse : it costs but $1 a year. If you want to keep pusiea on what is 
going on in the world, at the least expense of time or money, this is 
your means. If you want a paper in your home which is sincere 
reliable, entertaining, wholesome, the Pathfinder is yours. If you 
would appreciate a paper which puts everything clearly, fairly .briefly- 
here it is at last. Send only 15c to show that you might like such a 
paper, and we will send it on probation 13 weeks. *Tiie 15c does not 
repay us, but we are glad to invest in New Friends. Address

Above All Else We Aim To Secure Yeur Confidents 

No store can be great unless it has the confidence of its customers. 

The advertising of any store cannot become effective unless people 
have confidence in the printed word of the firm. 

And that is why we make every effort, from day to aay T to see that 
the ads of our store policy, and an actual statement of the merchandise- 
involved. 

Simply because there has been a practice in past years of taking; 
advertisements with the proverbial "grain of salt" is no reason why 
that practice should be indulged in today. 

So please take every statement that this store makes at its - full face- 
value. And in that way you and we will benefit to a geat degree. 

Our new lines are ready and the styles very attractive.

It's The World Book You Waai A $2,500,008 Prize Never Claimed 



It organizes, classifies and pictures the 
world's knowledge. 

It includes within itself the merits and pur- 
poses of the whole world of educational works. 

It supplies a world of information, depicts 
a world of progress. 

It meets the needs and demands of the 
educational world in a degree no other work 
has ever attempted. 



A special prize of £100 was offered to each of 25,000 
school people, or a grand total of 52, 500,000, to invite 
comparison between THE WORLD BOOK and other 
works. The prize was offered to any person who could suc- 
cessfully answer 90% of 150 practical question-, of everyday 
interest without the aiJ of THE WORLD BOOK, but using 
in its stead any TEN works of reference. 

No one successfully claimed it. Among the works most 
largely used in the attempts were: Encyclopaedia Britan- 
nica, International Encyclopaedia, Book of Knowledge, 
Webster's International Dictionary, History of Ready Refer- 
ence, Wonder World. List of these questions, together 
with answers, will be gladly sent on request.

The Journal of Education," Boston, A. E.Winship, 
editor, says of THE WORLD BOOK: 

"This is certainly a remarkable set of books. They ar.» entirely unlike 
anv encyclopedia? that have gone before. 

"This is the first jet of books of the kind th3t we have felt in the least 
inclined to recommend, but these are wholly valuable. 

"There is on every price evidence of the work of master? in the art 
and science of book-making. There is everywhere a revelation of the 
fact, of the skill of the literary expert, of 




devotion to education."

Talk about economy—you spend hundreds and perhaps thou- 
sands of dollars for a home, and in a great many cases it re- 
presents the savings of a lifetime, and yet, rather than spend 
a few dollars in protecting yourself with a fire insurance policy, 
you take the risk of having the total investment wiped out in a 
few hours by a fire. Why not protect yourself and ease your 
mind with a policy in one of the strongest and best companies 
doing business in the United States? We represent them. 

We also write life insurance and would be glad to protect 
your wife or loved ones with a policy in a good sound life in- 
surance company. If you . think you cannot afford to insure 
your life, have you thought how your family can afford to do 
without you. If you haven't thought of these things, can you 
call yourself a business man and neglect these important duties 
longer . 

The management of our office has spent years in the in- 
surance business and we are confident we can give you the best 
service at the lowest cost. -.; 

WE INSURE ANYTHING INSURABLE.
