the Mexican people and soldiers In

in the present situation. There Is no
question ns to what the outcome
would be If the Carranza government
were unable to check resentment and
control the populace and the armed
forces, even though the government
promised to cooperate with the Unit

ut Washington would be compelled to
contend not only with the difficulties
created by the pursuit of Villa bandits
but also with armed opposition on all

There ls reason to believe that Gen.

om YOUNG M KN.
A contemporary recently made thu
statement that a city ls made by Itu
young men and that thc city it repre
sented could boafit of having a finer
lot ot representative citizens among
the younger' set than uny other com
munity of like Elze in the country.
The writer of that article knows very
little of Anderson.
No: that an Insurance agent, any
moro than a man of any other profes
sion, ls more wlde-awnko, progressive,
or a better hustler than the othsr fel
low, but the on-the-jpb spirit eviden
ced by this class of young men, note
worthy here, ls worthy of more than
It developed recently that a family
of ordinary. means, consisting of some
three or four children, the father and
mother and a dependant relative, de
cided to locate in Anderson. By
chanco or otherwise the head of the
family met one of Anderson's most
alert and pleaslng-ot-nia.aacr life In
surance agents, and before many days
had passed the acquaintance grew In
to friendship. The stranger in town
told the agent ho had carried moro
than oho insurance policy at different
times during. euvly married life, but
failing to make emis meet as he
should and receiving but little en
couragement from the agent who had
collected his premiums when they fell
duo, he had dropped ? hiB insurance
Insofar as Insurance ls concerned he
had stricken the word from his vocab
ulary, and to this progressive young
And ors on la ii just referred to is. due
the fact that he has again Injured his
life, given .his family . needed protec
tion, and from the contagious smile of
success, advancement and general bus
iness tl!;e demeanor of the young I
aurnnce agent, his life has contracted
a new Impetus to do things and reach
the goal in the business world he has
always aspired to and heretofore been
denied because of the lack of proper
environment of tho do-thing* spirit.
The work this clty'B young mcu
.hayo done.in tho way of advancing
tito movement for the Atlanta-Ander
son railway Is one noteworthy incident
and possibly duo greater commenda
tion than anything'of recent date. It
fitly illu? tm tes their progressiveness.
