Typical Privat School in Winona/Mississippi USA 1911 May (Colored by me)!

The only school near the Cotton Mills, Winona, Miss. A private school taught by Miss. McIntosh, who for several years off and on has conducted it, charging each pupil only one dollar a month. With only ten pupils now the job is not very lucrative. She said it was discouraging, but that many seemed to appreciate it. "What we need is compulsory education and a free school out here, which we may get before long." Children range from six to ten years. One of the ten year old boys said, "Only two more years and I'll be in the mill." Little girls added, "Four years more and I'll be there." They all seemed to feel they would get into the mill as soon as possible.

Amanda Seyfried - W Magazine April 2014

Amanda Seyfried lays seductively on a chair in just her floral bikini and a pair of boots for this new photo from her W Magazine spread.
The 28-year-old A Million Ways to Die in the West actress chatted with the mag about young love and dating co-stars.
“I met my first boyfriend on a soap opera,” Amanda said. “We kissed for the first time on the show. It was like a fairy tale. When you’re young, it’s hard not to get together with your costar. It’s not always the greatest idea, but the experience of making a television show or a movie is so intimate and romantic. And I love acting like I’m in love! Sex scenes are great. A lot of my costars have been sexy guys my age who are really respectful and cool. So, why not? I’m not going to pretend it’s not fun.”
