It is said that some oft the candi
dates for. of fice in Anderson county
are adverselycriticising- President
Wilson, Tilla'' appears > very foolish
in tho light of the fact that a vast
majority of the voters in Anderson
county, and Indeed every county ot
the state, aro loyd to Mr. Wilson .and
to the principles tor which he standB.
ie would seem that every, than tn the
