?Some farmers aro hard people to
please. Some of them are very rea
sonable on some subjects, in fact it
.night be said that the major'ty of the
f H miara ?f the country arc reasonable
minded folks but when it comee to a
question of rain or dry weather the
?ruler Ia a hard man to please. One
week ago the tanners all said that ir
the fair weather would continue for
another week they could catch up with
their work and hmo crops In tine
shape. Yesterday some of those who
were tn the city complained al/out the
dry weather and said that lt was aw
fully hard on crops and that rain just
must come at once or crops would ho
a failure. This sounds to tho weather
man very much Uko a real complaint.

Company to the Schools of the school
District since 10 February, 1014.
7. State that while tho Anderson
School District recognizes tho vali
dity of the new franchise and contract
with the public Utilities Company, it
disputes the right to muko chargea
=bovs referred io on tho giourn? that
the providions of the old franchise are
still effective In so far as they re
quire the Water Company to furnish
free water for these schools.
The intention of tbe company to cut
off the water was signified to tho
thutrmnn of the board, Mr. Rrock,
Saturday afternoon, aud the attorneys
of the board were notified by him.
They had had no consultation up to u
lato hour last night.
The Tangle Hlarted.
The tangle in these affairs growa
out of two facts, one that the Behool
district is not a part of the municipal
government of Anderson, and another
that the contract between the water
company and the city of Anderson was
auperccded by the new contract, which
was offered last fall and was finally
adopted carly In this year.
Under the old contract tho city was
to get water at |.r>0 per annum for
each hydrant and all public institu
tutlons were to re?oive water free.
I'taler the new contrct the city is to
pay $40 a year for each hydrant, or a
reduction of $1U per year per hydrant,
and these arc about 175 hydrants.
Provided that all water used by pub
lic institutions was to bc paid .for at
meter rates This would be a net
saving to the city of about $900 a year.
It ls claimed that de school dis
trict, being as much of j a separate
entity as the township, ia not In any
I way a party to the contract and should
I pay for Its water just as the town
ship or the county would pay. If the
I city government paid for the water,
the outlying territory, Including some
of the cotton mills, would have no
part In paying for the water usad in
to nv? of the schools, and the wards of
he city would really pay for the
water used in suburban schools,
where as the school district pays all
other bills, including salaries, repairs
The matter will probably be set
tled In some form or manner In a few
days, as Judge Prince ls now at home
and can be applied to at any time for
mandamus. Injunction or any other
kind of writ that may be sought.

route followed by European travelers
today. Here stands l'Hua, the prom
ontory fortress where more than one
of Mexico's short-lived rulers lan
guished and died of yellow fever, and
which was the last stronghold of
Spain. Boyond lt arise the white tow
ers and buildings of Vera Cruz, . a
dream city, as beheld from the gulf,
of interest and beauty, and to the west
are the broad castal deserts. Piled up

feature of the eastern ?lope of Mex

other country and climate, upon the

?of dense vegltation or jungle and La
? goon where there are snore.-,, woods
[and groves teeming with animal and
vegetable life, the road enters the
more temperate zone, the tierra tem
plada, extending upward toward the
great plateau. The limit of the cli
?matic zone is an elevation of 6.000
feet above'tho sea level. Rising then
up to and over the escarpments of the
Sierra Madre and the high plains, we
enter the tierra fr?a, or cold lands,
ranging from 0.000 to 8.000 feet above

summits of the Mexican Cordilleras,
with their culminating peaks, som? of
which penetrate the atmosphere above
the limit of perpetual snow*.

Kuri/. P. Smith ,is the son of Capt.

education at thc University of Michi

law school or that Institution, later
receiving a course at the University
of Indiana, ll? WHS graduated from i
that institution in 1?04 and in 1905 ne
began the practice of law in Ander

taking an active part frt eome of the
principal criminal trials heard in this
county and he has made a record for
I himself. H served six years iu the
lower house of the general assembly
?from Anderson county, giving up that
I position last year on account of his
law practice. Ho was chairman of
the committee an railroads.
While the people of Anderson con
sider Mr. Smith one Of the natives,
as a matter of fact ho is an Oconee

of the fact that he wasL born in Oco

duties of this important office. Mr.

irpare no efforts In discharging the
duties of the office as they should be.
"Hov ever," said the .new solicitor, "I
must first be sr.tisfiied that the defen

there ls reason to believe that the
prisoner at the bar 1B ?innocent' I
shall certainly favor giving him his
freedom. I shall prosecute the guilty
to the best of my ability but at no
Hmo will I countenance persecution.
If a man is gullly the ?act will pe dis
closed by trial and if he ia innocent
he will be speedily" freed,"
Since be was appointed Mr. Smith
has been using every minute in get

to dosen? of indictments. Owing to
the fact that there is- much new busi

Clemson College, April 30.-Prof. J.

which the farmer can double his av-'

this increased demand without increas

"Tho Increased c\.;?ind for co

cotton can be made to yield twice it:;
