SPOT LIGHTS AND CUT-OUTS?
Tho following clipping has been
sent to The Courier with the request
that we publish same:
.Cut-outs and spot lights are ta
boo under tho law of the last Legis
lature, and rural policemen in An
derson are going to enforce the law.
Word has already come down to the
rural policemen to watch the cut
outs and spot, lights as much as the
speed bends, and to make cases
against persons who use a cut-out at
any time, and to arrest and make
cases against those persons who vio
late the spot light law.
"While cut-outs are positively for
bidden, spot lights may be used un
der tho condition that the light be
extinguished hy the person using
samo when within 200 yards of au
approaching vehicle."
Commenting upon the . clipping,
the sonder, who is doubtless, along
with hundreds of others, a sufferer
from those nuisances, says:
"li scorns that our otlicers are not
paying any attention lo these laws,
and yet they are laws that should be
enforced, both on account of health
and safety."
The Courier has often mentioned
obnoxious practices on the part of
aulomohilists, a fow of which are:
Failure lo use horn to warn others
of approach when desiring lo pass.
Ku il uro lo observe warning when
given, sticking to tho middle of tho
road, forcing the ono wishing to
p.?ss io "run around" or stay behind
;niii lake tli" dust. This ls one of
tho comlnon practices of tho ordinary
?Toad hog."
Operating ears al night without
t. il lights, i Not Infrequently there
are cars thal arc run almost contin
uously without even trout lights.)
Ka il uro t" ..?rn lights when In tho
act of approaching :imother car go
ing opposite direction.
Approaching intersecting roads or
streeis ai considerable speed without
giving warning,
Cutting nu' short distances tin Ibo
towns i by crossing aben; ibo mid
dle ol a block instead of going all
i lie way to tho intersection when go
ing oin of one into another street.
All of these are abominable prac
tices, and some of thom infractions
Of spec i lie laws.
And yoi il is almost an impossi
bility tor ibo o 111 co rs to correct these
evils, lt Will take the heany co-op
eration of tho public to make it pos
sible, l'util wo find the general pub
lic willing to report infractions of
the automobile laws we will have to
content ourselves with taking our

On Thursday. .Inly 13th, Dr. Ern
est Cooper, superintendent of tito
South Carolina Tuberculosis Asso
ciation, will ho In Walhalla and will
hold a free clinic ?it the Court House
from :i a. m. to ll p. m. This is a
wonderful opportunity, and one that
should li?- taken advantage of by
every man, woman and child in Coo
nee county within reach of Walhalla.
You may not have tuberculosis;
ii you have not, you will lia ve hem,
done, no harm Hy having the exami
nation, ir you have the disease, even
hi its incipiency, then yon should
know ii. for your own sake and for
tho sake of those with whom you
come in daily contact.
Br. Cooper has held these free
clinics with great success and splen
did attendance in Newberry, Green
ville, Anderson and many other
counties of our Slate.
Tuberculosis is curable. Rest and
fiesb air and proper food will cure
yon. If you will help yourself yon
<:.n he bellied. Medicino cannot help
y< n. hut righi living can.
Tho Metropolitan Lifo Insurance
Company prints and distributes a
little sheol on which it tells you what
is meant hy rest, fresh air and good
food, wv quoto:
"lungs and wrong living aro tho
friend- of tuberculosis Its chief
en. mu s your beal friends -are:
"liest By which is meant proper
recreation. SUftlclOUl .-!<.;.;., ??? frosh
air, relaxation.

By which is meant
food, Har TOO

Tuberculosis cannot develop if you
have these three things. Why not
have them? The death lau- from
ibis dread disease each year, lp the
United Stillos and Canada, is ap
palling. Why die? Most ot these peo
ple could have lived had they known
they had consumption, and had they
followed these simple rules.
In our bodies lurk the germs of
tuberculosis, waiting for a chance to
develop. Dou't .let them have a
chance. But if they have developed,
take the necessary moans to kill
them-and you can do this if you
will only, follow tho slmplo rules
rest, fresh air, good food.
Dr. Cooper will also hold a freo
c!iu\c at Seneca, in tho Chamber of
Commerce Hall, on Friday, July l l,
from 9 a. itt. to 6. p. m.
lin this work Dr. Cooper is ably
assisted by Miss Elsie Gudger, who
has been in Walhalla for tho past
two weeks, going out into the coun
try and talking to ihe people ot the
rural communities in the interest of
this wonderful work which the State
is doing, and urging them to take
advantage of the opportunity of this
ft co examination.
North Carolina has adopted tor
her slogan In her fight on tubercu
losis, "Every person In North Caro
lina who has tuberculosis has a right
to know it, and to be properly treat
ed for it."
Let us in South Carolina see to lt
that if we have tuberculosis we will
cure lt. If we have not,.Jet us pre
vent it by proper precautions.
Let the people of Oconee county
take advantage of these two oppor
tunities offered. Remember the two
dates and places-Thursday, July 13,
at Walhalla Court House; Friday,
July 14th, at Seneca Chamber ot
Commerce. Both clinics will bo be
tween the hours of 9 a. m. and 6 p.
in, And the examinations and ad
vice will be absolutely free.
NOTED WOMAN TO, S PEA Q.
On the first page of last week's
Courier we announced that Mrs. An
nie Caines Williams, State chairman
of the League of Women Voters,
would speak at the American Legion
Hall at 5 o'clock last Wednesday af
ternoon. We regret that the date
was given us incorrectly, for the an
nouncement should have been for
this afternoon, the 28th, at 5 o'clock.
We regret to learn that the attend
ance last Wednesday was very small,
and we hope that this afternoon will
find the hall filled with women ready
to listen, with Intelligence and un
derstanding,' to what Mrs. Williams
has to say on the importance of the
ballot for women.
'Have you enrolled for the primary
yet? Perhaps you have not regis
tered. The books are still open. In
quire as to dates of registration and
secure your registration certificates,
then enroll your name on the club
book in the precinct In which you
reside. Don't delay. The time is get
ting .shon In which you can discharge!
this new duty that has been imposed]
upon yon with the granting of tho
voting franchise. Do it now-and
help Som h Carolina to have a clean-,
er. purer, saner government.
Perhaps you do not approve of'
"voles for women," but the women j
o:" South Carolina have the vote, ;
and ii is your dui y to see that tho
good women, the Intelligent, women.'
tho women with tho best interests of
their Slate and counties at heart,
cast their voles, lt is nd"t a dilllcult
matter to register; it is easy to vote.
t;o and listen to Mrs. Williams this
afternoon nt the Legion Hall, and
you will realize better than we can
tell you the importance of casting an
intellegent vote.
Perhaps you consider suffrage for j
women an evil. In that case, tho
evil, as you .see it. is here, and it
must be dealt with and not ignored, j
Wi- are in receipt of a letter from
Mrs. Williams, in which she asks us
to urge upon the women of Oconee j
the importance of registering and j
voting-to realize their responsible
ity, and that voting ls not a matter
of preference, but a bounden duty.
Wake up, women of Oconee! Put
your naroo on the registration and
precinct hooks and show your pref
erence in the coming election. Take
for your slogan and battle cry, "A
sane government and clean politics."

Miss Ethel Counts will meet tho la
dies of this vicinity at 3.30 on Tues
day afternoon at tho homo of dtobert
McDonald, for tho purpose of per
fecting the organization of a poultry
club, which has been under consid
eration for several weeks. Now that
tho boll weevil seems destined to cut
off, to a marked extent, tho cotton
industry, plans must be made to
meet tho ever-increasing demands
for money by substitution of the va
rious other lines of occupation which
might be remunerative if co-operat
ive measures are adhered to. We
hope this meeting will be well at
tended. Miss Counts will be accom
panied by Miss Gudges, of Columbia,
who will have something worth while
to say.
Tho guests In the home of Mr. and
Mrs. M. E. Marett the past week
were Mr. and Mrs. Swift Marett, of
?Seneca, and Mr. and Mrs. Ben EMI
I son and son Robert, of Greenville.
The many friends of Frank Mar
I ett sympathize with him in the re
sult of quite an unfortunate acci
dent which occurred on Wednesday
morning. While he was driving the
highway truck, tho cap of which, be
ing considerably worn, as the ma
chine ran over a stump, the cap came
off, severely scalding him from the
shoulder to the ankle on one side.
Mr. Marett received immediate med
ical attention and ls very much im
proved, and we hope will'soon bo
[entirely recovered.
Another accident of last week was
the demolishing of the two rear
\ wheels of E. A. Stone's buggy on
Thursday by a car being driven by
Miss Annie Strutton, of Walhalla.
Tho wheels were a complete wreck,
and Mr. Stone received an ugly
bruise below one knee.

Nellie Newton, of Pendleton.
Miss Emma Dendy returned to Au
gusta Wednesday after a few days*
visit to her sisters, Mesdames D. A.
Perritt and Jasper Doyle, the latter
accompanying her as far as Ander
son.
There are many who will learn
with regret of the impaired state of
Mrs. J. H. Alley's health. Mrs. Alley
has been in the Baptist Hospital in
Columbia for several weeks and has
underogne ono or two operations,
it is feared that still a more serious
operation will bo necessary to her re
covery. We hopo for early and en
couraging news of her condition.
Mrs. W. H. Hughs left last Mon
day, the Ht th, for Pendleton, where
she will visit among relatives and

surprised to learn that he. has quito
'receritly taken unto Himself "an

Ibo congratulations and best wishes
