I KARN! SPANISH
If American business men are neg
lecting their Latin-American oppor
tunities, the boys and girls of the
country are net. Prom every section
come reports of keen interest tn the
language, history, geography and eco
n?mica of Spanish countries.
The interest ts especially high
along the Atlantic and Pacific sea
boards, where sn|apwg connection
with Central and South America
makes Latin-American relation? seem
more actual and practical.
In language study in thc high schools
and colleges there ls a great falling
off in tho, German classes and a sur- '
prising demand for Spanish instruc
tion. The Spanish classes in the New
York high schools are overflowing,

The Ideal solution of Ute Dardanel

neutralize permanently tho whole
passage from tho Black Sea to the
Aegean. But perfect neutralization
seems impossible. It has been tried
under the Turkish rule, with the sup

proved tho attempt futile. It ls un
thinkable that that great waterway
should remain In the hands of the
Turks. Some big power, with a sense

Mr. W. Dean Simpson, formerly ot
the Hotel Barber shop, has rented
from Mr. Boo Xing the room in the
basement boneath tho lobby of the
Hotel Chlquola and will within the
noxt few daya open up a barber shop
which it is stated wilt be th? moat
up-to-date and best equipped of any
in thia city. Mr. Simpson has had
much experience In thia line and will
no doubt, make a success from the
start. . ,
Mr. King stated yesterday that he
had placed ordora for fixtures for the
now place that would eclipse thst of
any tonsorial parlor tn Anderson. As.
lt la. the basement is ideally located
for a barber shop. It ls finished In
white and has a tile floor. The en
trance may he gained by going in tho
doora leading to the lobby of tho
hotel, hut ta' reached before coming
to the second doors, and, therefore,
one may go down into the room with
out going Into the lobby of the hotel.
Mr. Xing states that large mirrors
will be placed nearly all round the
Bides of the room and thst in addition
to Other equipment In the place he
trill have a reading table, with maga
sinas and papers, and a writing desk
for the convenience of customers who
I are walting on work. He expects
to have the place ready tor Mr. Simp
sou within the next few days.
Much local interest is being mani
fested in the Clemson-Davldson foot
ball game which ls to be played on
the Clemson field Saturday. Thia dato
marks the opening of the new Higg's
athletic field and the Clemson author
ities want to make this a big event.
Both of the above named football
teams have been about oqually match
ed for the past few years, hast year
they played to a tie and in 1913 Clem
son beat Davidson 6 to 8. There are
several of tho Davidson alumni in
Anderson and also numbers of old
Clemson mon. Many from this elf y
will attend the game on Saturday if
:the weather ls favornble.
Messrs. A. ft. Kptlng and T. J. Mar
I tin stated ysetedray that th?y were
paving $34 per ton for cotton seed,
i the highest price paid in Anderson
' this season.
It is noted with pleasure that the
owners or managers of several storos
of tho city have recently adopted the
plan of burning lights in their show
windows until 10 o'clock at night.
There aro still quite a few of the
more important ones, however, who
still let their goods remain in tho
dark as well as some of the people
who would like to see what ls being
are coming and it is supposed that all
will soon have the show windows
displayed. The Christmas holidays

"We arc busy getting up the data
for our fall telephone directory," stat
ed Manager Beaty of the Southern
Bell Telephone company yesterday.
"This is always thc largest and the
hardest one of the year to get ready
since there are always a great many
changes at this time of the season."
Mr. J. M. McCowan has some beans
or peas that grew In Mr. J. F. Wat
son's corn field that are creating
much comment and are puzzling a
great many people to know just what
they are, and If beanB, what kind aro
they. Some, who have seen them,
geem to think that they are velvet
beans but the majority Bay that they
ravo no idea what they are.
. The beans grow In clusters of about
16 to 20, and tho pods are about one
and one-half to three inches in length.
Mr. Watson planted them in hie corn
and will cut tho vines for feed.
Manager Trowbridge stated yes
terday that ho had a two reel Charlie
Chaplin for the Anderson today. The
namo of the picture ls "The Woman,"
and Mr, Trowbridge Bays that this ls
a new one yhlch has never been
shown in this city.
Judging from the attendance at Thc
Palmetto this week, the Bhows put on
by the Crawford and Humphrey's Bon
Ton company is pleasing the vaude
ville goers of the city very much.
This company has ten people and are
put !ng on hlgh-c'ass bills. They are
featuring tho Bei Ton trio, the sing
ing ot which deserves comment, a
good looking chorua with a handsome
wardrobe, and a blackface comedian
which delivers the goods.

(St. Louis Post-Dispatch.)
If tho experiments of the Rocke
feller institute scientists on carr?tTr
cure are confirmed by time, it will be
a splendid triumph for modern medi
cine. These experiments tend to show
chat the leucocytes, or so-called white
blood cellH, have the power, whtn
enormously Increased In n'in.ber, of
making ono immune to canser. And
the Rockefeller institute men have
found a way to double the average
number of such cells of the system.
Of course, this may be followed by
some cons?quent ill. For ono can
hardly believe that a doubling of
these white lympa cells can bo
brought about without some after ef
fect. The white lymph cells have an
apparent individuality of their own.
They wander through the tissues,
seeking obelr prey, which is all those
germs that may be hurtful to the
budy. They are the guardians of thc
blood and cellular tissue. If the new
method cures cancer, lt will have
proved that this disease ls actually
caused by a germ-something denied

It has been noted often enough
that the Germans have gained abso
lutely nothing in a military, sense by
their Zeppelin raids on Englan:!.
Only a few days ago lt was pointed
out. In England t rat no soldier or
sailor has been killed in this way.
Now the record has been broken, for
among the many victims of tho re
cent raid on London was ono British
soldier. Probably ho was at home
. It can hardly be said that the kill
ing of one soldier in all these at
teints Justified tala kind of warfare.
The Germans have been wasting
their time and energy.
Now, it appears, if we are to ac
cept the reports from London, that
the latest raid will react against the
Germans. "We have broken all rec
ords for recruiting in Trafalgar
Square" was the announcement of a
British officer after the raid. This
wo take it, was London's answer.
