A newspaper ia always printed in a
rush. There is always something in it
thai should be left out, and something
left out that should be put in. It is
sometimes too quick to act, but with its
faults t>nd shortcomings, there is more
education in a bright newspaper than
there is in any novel. You will find the
brightest-' boy on practical, sensible,
every-day questions is the boy who
reads the newspapers.
Some of you who think you are well

your friends and see how many can
spell every word correctly. The sen

j The plant of the Abbovillo Electric
j Light and Power Company wan totally
I destroyed by lire last Thursday morn
j ing at about six o'clock. The company
operated the city water works in con
nection with its electric plant and in
the same building, nil of which was to
tally destroyed. The city has been
without light for some time and is now
without water. The company lost
electrical machin?e, engine and other
property of the estimated value of
$3.000 to t4,000. The city's losses are
estimated at $1,000. There was no in
surance. Our young friend and former
townsman, C. G. S ay re. was manager
of the electric plant, and largely inter
ested in it, and his friends here deeply
sympathize with him in his misfortune.
In renewing his subscription to The
Intelligencer our old friend and form

which put so many of the factory em

to hoar of so many tloods, when in this

big success. Give my kindest regards

One day last week our venerable
friend, Mr. John Ilendiix, of the Fair
Play section, came down to visit his
grand-daughter, Mrs. J. W. Bailey, at

night there he started next morning
for Pelzer to visit some more grand

I At a special meeting of the City
I Council last Friday a petition, signed
I by a majority of the freeholders of the
I city, was presented asking that an
I election be ordered on the question of
I issuing bonds for the purpose of estab
! lishing a sewerage system in Auder
I son. The Council granted the request
I of the petitioners and fixed Friday,
I February 7th, for the date of the elec
I tion. It is estimated that the cost of
I Putting in the Bewerage will be about
I $40,000. At present the proposed sys
I tern is the general topic of conversa
! tion among the citizens of Anderson,
I and considerable opposition is being
I developed against it. Some of this op
I position, wo oelieve, is caused by a few
I exaggerated reports in circulation as
I to the cost, etc., and a general misun
I derstanding as to the facts and details
I in connection with the system. The
I authorities should, before the day of
I election, acquaint the people with all
I the information possible in reference
I to the question.
It is our sad duty this week to chron
! icle the death of another one of Ander
I son County's oldest and most upright
I citizens, Kelsie C. McCoy, who died at
I hi? home in Broadway Township last
I Wednesday afternoon. He ha? been
I in feeble health for about six months,
I but was able to be up and walk about
I his farm until a few hours preceding
I his death, when he was stricken down
I with paralysis, which ushered him into
I eternity. Mr. McCoy lacked a few
I days of being 80 years of age. and was
I born, reared and always resided on the
I same fcrm where he died. The house
I which his parents first erected on the
I plantation more than one hundred
I years a<?o is still standing. When
I South Carolina called for volunteers
I in the civil war he was among the first
I to respond, and enrolled as a private
I in Co. L, 2nd Regiment. He served
I faithfully throughout the war, and his
I old comrades say that a braver man
I could not be found in the whole army.
I U j was severely wounded at Second
I Manassas. He was strictly upright in
I all his dealings with his fellowman, a
I kipd neighbor and a most generous,
I clever-hearted man in every respect.
