Tilt: DAILY PAPEB
Fifteen years ago it would have
been a fuct wortliy of comment to
have found a daily newspaper tn th?*
home )f a small farmer or a daily
laborer. Today conditions are re
versed. Hundreds, yes, thousands of
families take the daily paper even
though they are forced to pay for it
weekly, costing them anywhere from
10 to 15 cents. And this ls not to be
wondered at. Who would not pay
that amount for dally entertainment?
it goes without saying that 'this is
the cheapest pleasure, amusement and
enlightenment to be found on the
murket today. It is not only food for
serious thouKht, but the modern
daily carries lu addition to Its news
of important moment, many features
which prove a recreation and cause:
many u hearty laugh as they are perus
de over the breakfast table and re
ferred to during the day.
Thc weekly paper has lt? place.
There ls no gainsaying that. But
it is thc daily newspaper that tho
man of learning, the business man.
the ploughman and the daily iuborei
look to nowadays for news of their
town or city, und, In' fact, the entire
universe. To The Associated Press ls
due credit more titan any other nows
service for tho up-to-the-mluute news
reports that ure to bo found in the
lending dallies pf the North, South,
East, and West.v While there are oth
er services, good ones no doubt, still
the old'A. 1\ ls always foremost. Tho
intelligencer has used the A. P. re
ports slnco lt was first Introduced In
Anderson ns a dally. And the fact
that this service ls more dependable,
consummate in it's world-wide search
for news great and small, makes it
easily understood why wo have se
lected this news service of the many
others now available.
What we started out to aay con
cerned the dally paper, not the Asso
ciated Press. But as the eulogy of.
'the A. P. was a natural part of the
explanation of the pur,-,se and func
tions of the modern dally, the diver
sion como only natural. So back to
The vast pnd growing Importance
of tho daily paper, it's rapid develop
ment into an Institution of world
wide recognizance, was fittingly dem
onstrated by The Chronicle", Augus

gave a dedication, so to'speak, In
celebration of. the paper's oocupancy

cial, social, civic, or otherwise, hnB
over brought together such a large
assemblage on an occasion of that
The dally paper, the morning paper
especially, has developed - into an In

Col. Roosevelt hnB said so much
about what the people may expect If
he.is nominated, and elected' President
tin:: the Republican delegates, ami
the people who elect them, will do
well to pondor over his impression
to go abroad that he would pursuo a
policy rigidly adhering to American
rights and principles, and he would
make no allowance for what others
might think about his course. One
gathers irom his remarks that he
would not bo In harmony with the
vie WK of a great many citizens', tor he
speaks In a way to frighten those who
have v.ny pac?fl?\ 'tendencies . what
ever. Ho appeals to the chosen few
who'would bo willing to stand up for
an unwavering, determined' attitude
I:, rcapct to foreign affairs, no mat
ter what the con sen neus cs might I bo,
and there ls th? Impression that' lie
would make. short shift', of explana
tions and negotiations. J .,'
Col. Roosevelt's appeal to patriot
ism is one thing; hlr, appeal tb -the
people to make ot patriotism, an ar?
bttr?ryvaffulr "Intecapered with, reasons
or judgment la quite another ' thing.

Col. RobBt velt would have dealt with
Mexico In, such a way that interven
tion would be inevitable"^'- tte wd?ld

that, would have meant wari This
would hAve been Col. RosavelVa no
tion of the right Way ol measuring up
to American rlghti? and principles.
We have heard' a good deal Of; taikw

that theproplenui that!. -hUU; e?it$?
are in ta fair:way to1 solution and that
there baa b?en no sacrifico of Ameri
Among; those who have been spoken
of as Republican candidates Coi.
Roosevelt is the most impulsive, and
he ls the most lu favor of the malled
fist as u corollary of patriotism. If he
is nominated by force of clrcum
stances which Republicana may not
bc able to overcome, there will be no
little apprehension as to the possible
result of his election.
All Anderson bas enjoyed the visit
of the Clemson cadets .thia week and
their going nway this afternon will
bring to a close a period that the
younger set will long remember.
There ls a something-we shall not
attempt to describe lt-In the bearing,
or the deportment, the general appear
ance mayhap, of these gentlemanly
young men that endears them not on
ly to their contemporaries In ago, but
to all of un.
