There ls another consideration that
enters into tlu? case -the long haul and
the short haul. We would recom
mend to the people of Anderson that
they get good roads and shorten tho
haul. Otherwise Georgia will draw
cotton from tills side of the river on
account of their good roads.
J. J. Fretwelli who has heen over

Francis H. Weston, United States
district attorney, has begun well by !
naming Senator H. W. Crouch of Sa-1

a splendid man and a good lawyer.

men In Senators Weston and Crouch.
Willie this paper did not particular- ;
ly favor Senator Weston as an appil- ?
cant, y??t we .*tsh to express the belief !
that as district attorney he will make j
a splendid record. He ls a capable |
Inwycr and a man of vigor and force.
His first move shows that he will sur
round himself with good men.
What ar,, you going to do about
your boy? Surround him with temp
tations in order to accustom him to
them? Or will you : keep him in ig
norance of the vice of th3 world?

Oh. the anguish of the parents of
wayward sons. It Js pitiful. And!
yet the sons might not have fallen

And is there any environment stron

munity of churches and of church his

that ls needed. The church ls dear to

Kar be it from UK to advise that
ibis is ?he time to BUggeftt such a cam-l
jiaiKU tu raise the iunds. That is a|
maller of which friends of the in-ti
ttil ion must weigh carefully. Hut we!
do say this, if the directors decided
to pul on lids campaign, the people I
of the city should respond and there
should h(> a buildiug which would
cost at least 175.000 and perhaps I
$100.000 for we would he buildiug
for the future. We admit the deter-]
niination of t lie* board of directors and:
whatever they ci I! upon thc city to
do. we believe wll meet with a ready!
response. We have heard that'one dis
tinguished man of Anderson, himself
once a country boy who hud to fa e
the temptations of the city, and nus
never permitted himself to step aside'
from the part of right living, la]
thinking of starting the fund with a|
subscription of $10.000. If he does so,;
the remainder will be easy to get. We
have put up a lot of money for our
girls, now let us do something for
the boys. Let us put up a Y. M. C.
A. building, if wo are called upon to
do so. And then let us reward that
splendid Christian gentleman who has
given of his time, of Iiis strnegth, of
lila sulary to keep in operation tho in
stitution for thc Christian education
of the boys of Anderson. Let us not
forget Dr. Frazer in any undertaking
that we may put forward, for we be
llevo that a boy's school will be a
great asset for the coninunitv
The matter to be settled immediate
ly, however, is whether or not to put
on a campaign for .the: building of a
handsome home for the boys of the Y.
M. C. A. of this city. If this momen

our boys, the little fellows that are
coming on. Surround them with all
possible protection for the battle that
is to come.
