A SWIMMING POOL
What could he more delightful and
more refreshing these hot Rummer
afternoons titan a few minutes spent
in swimming? With the thermom
eter climbing to 100 degrees and
above, mortui man can dream or im
agine of nothing moro enticing. He
does not have to be a young lad
either; there is a natural Inclination
in tho boy's mind to go swimming and
In tho older man there ls fond recol
lections of ??he "ole swimmin' hole,"
down on th^ creek somewhere, the
access to which has been closed by
tho growth of tho city* r
Coming down to the plain truth of
tho matter, Anderson needs a swim
ming pool and needs one badly. The
young people of the city need it. The
cause of providing proper amusement
and recreation demands lt. Ko ex
ercise ls boiler than swimming and
nothing can give more pleasure on ?
hot day than a dip in the water. Just
lo seo a b\mch of youngsters, enjoy
ing themselves in the water and
splashing about ls almost enough to
tempt ono spending money to build a
pout it xe had tho funds.
Unfortunately Anderson ls so locat
ed .that there is no stream of tho
propor depth for swimming located
In Its vicinity. HeVever, there aro a
efw places near tho city where pools
might be constructed with a com
pnrative small expenditure- of money.
- The?e is general sentiment at the
present lu favor of building a swim
ming pool somewhere in the city, and
someone ought, to take up the matter
and have lt put into execution. Just
where lt should bo located, and the
boRt meanB to Bemire lt, will have
to bo worked out.
There IB no getting around the ques
tion that one is needed and that lt
ought to be built.
PL.UE TO TEACH THRIFT .
Tho' schoolhouse IB a good place
to teach thrift, but the homo is still
a belter place. .It is better, both for
the ?reason that lt 1? the, parent's
rather than the teacher'j duty, and
for the further one that the parent's
counsel IB apt fd bo the moro impres
sive on the mind of tito child. And
there: ls ttlll another reason'ih that
thrift is one of the moralities of
lower order, and- the home is the
sanctuary best suited for Inculcating
. Tho :suggestion that ' "thrift be
taught in the schools" la* sound, chief
ly for the implication that'ii is m
tho youthful mind tho idea munt be
planted if it is to take deep root.
Thrift, like the vice which ls its op
po site, is much a matter of habit.

By mixture of cert lin proportions
of kerosense and gasoline about three
ot the former to ono of the latter, it
