SUPPORT TUE ELKS
- At The Anderson this > evening a
''Couiaty Fair" will be held under
auspices of the local lodge of Elks.
Local talen, under expert tutelage
vf or several days, has been fashioned
into .'something that is' of close kin to
professionalism, and wc daresay those
. .Who attend the' performance this
eveht^v will, be genuinely surprised
at .tho excel lenee "of tho performance.
The Elka Is one ot tie ^drthlflat bf

Js /particularly fortunate tn having .a
<j Jpdfe .of ynilis" composed of the
flower of Hie young manhood of tho

for the purpose of raising funds for
legitimate purposes, and wc bespeak
for them thc most liberal patronage

able of giving.
DONATIONS HUI D.M A.MI'MK>T
Thc commhlee of the ('bamber of
Commerce which lian in charge the
matter of raising funds for defraying
the expenses of thu Clemson College
cadet encampment will bo on the
streets within ti few days collecting
subscriptions already promised and
soliciting donations from those who
have net already promised' aid.
At a brief meeting of thc committee
yesterday the request was made that
notice be given subscribers lo this
lund that they would be expected lo
turn in their subscriptions in ad
vance, that is. prior to the encamp
ment. Tho reasons for this are cn
tlrely plausible. First, the Clemson
authorities are without funds of their
own for au encampment and as cer
tain expense ls necessary before the
cadets can leave Hie college, il is nec
essary thal tiley have the money In
hand bf oro they leave for Hie encamp
A second reason for wanting th.'
imbM-rlplions in advance, is thal it ia
a whole lot easier to pay for a thin.?
of this kind in advance than it is to
make collections of subscriptions af
ter lt ls over. The committee ls just
a blt se I ll M h. but commendably so, In
thu matter, desiring to collect the
subscrlptons beforehand and have

HOCTI! CA HOM NA LOSEN
Tlie announcement that Walter U.
Sullivan has retired from the manage
ment of the Columbia Record lo take
up the management of the Charlotte
Observer, which he and W. li. John
son of thc Knoxville Sentinel have
purchased, means the loss to South
Carolina newspaperdom of one of the
valuable assets of the profession.
The change represents an even great
er loss to Columbia, where he labored
unceasingly and successfully for the
advancement of the city's Interests in
lt is generally known that Mr. Sul
livan fathered in Columbln the ordur
of "Hood Fellows," who each Chr*=i
mas taite baskets to the poor. He was
instrumental, ir not altogether re
sponsible lor, in bringing in Columbia
a half-dozen large granite shedr..
whose lluished product in the form of
ornamental und monumental stone
linds itu way to every Btate in the
Union. He was personally respon
sible for the locating in Columbia of
a huge plant for ;be manufacture of
veneering, an enterprise representing
an investment of perhaps $100,000. It
ls understood that other wood-work
ing enterprises, are \o follow the os
tahlhhment of the veneering plant.
Newspaper publishers of the char
acter of Mr. Sulivan are a real and
a very valuable asset to a city, and
it ?3 ott.-n lite case that their worth
ls not truly appreciated until after
they are gone. But wo daresay Mr.
Sullivan waa appreciated in Columbia,
and we aro confident that in thc thriv
ing North Carolina city to which he
huB gone he will find much to do that
will win for himself the esteem and
tho support ho so rich'-y desorvca.
TIIK MOTION CICTCIrK MENACE
Headers of tho daily newspapers,
partlculraly HIOBC published In South
Carolina, have noticed of Jute that in
n R?mber cf cities of i?;?s statu con
siderable attention has been given to
tho mutter of censoring of motion
pictures. In some cities boards of
censors havo been appointed for the
purpose of Inspecting pictures of
questionable nature and recommend
ing t', tho proper authorities that
their exhibition Ve prohibited if it
was thought necessary. While no
definite action along this line has
taken piuco in other cities, yet tho
voice of protest has boen raised re
peatedly by first one and then the
other of pttbllc spirited citizens. (We
believe "public spirited" is the prop
er cbaracteriistoin of such people
for lt takes a man with a lot of pub
lic spirit to utter publicly a word of
protest against stich things. The man

Some days ago the well known edu
cator ot (the state--Prof. \V. H. Hand
-uttered a word ot protest against a
number or indecent pictures which.he
had chanced, to 'view during his
rounds ot the stale. Hia article of
protest printed tn ono or tho leading
papera bf i the state attracted Interest
all over . South Carolina and elicited
comment from almost every quarter.
There appeared yesterday in a well
known, newspaper ut thc state un
other protest against a questionable
picture, which we reproduce for What

There ls a project now on foot to
simplify the whole Chinese language.
Tho plan is to have a board of lin
guists go through the whole mass ot
dialects and vocabularies, taking out
for ordlnury usc about 5.000 words.
The characters used In writing these
words are to bc made s imp fer, and
the writing and pronunciation of them
is to bo standardized. Then those
standardized words and characters
would be the same In every province,
and by using them In thia way In the
schools, In one generation lt would be
possible for all China to intercom
municate. At present tho man from
Canton cannot understand either the
written or spoken language of the
man from Pekin. There will also be
an offort to usc less florid language
in evory-day expression. To encour
age thia the simplification board would
turn some of the classics into slm
plier characters which can be made
without shading by ordinary pens.

"Why ls it you reporters ask so
many seemingly foolish questions."
asked a business man of the city yes
"It is because we' try to get things
right," replied the reporter.
Every day tho reporter of a news
paper asks many seemingly* foolish
questions which the ordinary man
would never think of, and as a result
many are of the opinion that the
newsgathecer just has the habit, and
can't get out of it. However, 'this is
not thc case. It is better to ask ten
foolish questions than it is to make
ono fool mistake, which when appear
ing in a newspaper, is never pardon
able. A man's name may bo Brown,
just uimple .B-r-o-w-n, but how does
Hie newspaper man know it? This
man Brown may spell his name with
an E on the end of it This same man
may be proud of that E, and if it doe ;
not'appear on his name when publish
ed in the newspaper he may remark
that the newspapers never get any
thing right. That is just one instance
of the reporter's reason for asking BO
many foolish questions. AH stated
above, it ls boiler to ask ten foolish
questions than it is, to make ono fool
mistake, so when the reporter seems
to be nn ignoramus, just remember
that he wants to get things right.

When nature distributed out the

and distinct as a bugle call. Ho's

exquisitely modulated aro notes cf
that song, that it is oftea mistaken for
that of his cousin, the mock'ng bird,
many of Ms notes are almost identical
with those of that famous singer,
though he lacks the mocker's power
of imitation. His usual call, is a loud
clear Hlcklng sound, very much like
the smacking of lips. Through a third

when he has norning on his mind* ne

as lise files. Much of his time ls

is found, and mrhen darting from
