Thus lt will be seen that the ma
chinery for absolutely honest elect
tiona hos been provided by the State
convention and by the General As
sembly. It remains for the voters to
cheerfully acquiesce in these rules
and thus insure ? that no crookedness
can be charged to the primary this
year. Honest men should be willing
to abide tho result of honest 'elect ion s ;
others should be made to do so.
Every Andersonian should feel
proud of the records made by the
schools of the city for the past ses
sion. If tho saying that one can Judge
a community by its churches and tts,
schools is true, Anderson snould have
a very commendable pride In the
Judgment that will go forth wherever
the standing of her schools and her
churches is known.
A total enrollment of her schools
of 3,588 during the past session is
climbing at a very gratifying pace.
Sundy there is not much need of com
pulsory education in this city. But
lest we be misunderstood, we wish
to state that if there is one boy or
girl who has the capacity for learn
ing, needlessly kept away from
school, the State should step in and
see that such boy or girl is given an
opportunity to prepare for an equal
hattie in lire.
With Bitch schools as the city has.
there is strong probability that the
future ('allumns will continue to come
from Anderson. We take off our bats
tn Superintendent McC-?nts. his .able
faculty and the board of trustees for
the splendid achievement.
POLITICAL POT WILL BOIL.
The political pot In Anderson coun
ty will poon be bubbling over, and the
present indications are that there will
be nome lively doings a little later.
Candidates will begin to come thick
and fast from now on, the issues de
fined and the lines closely drawn.
The expressed intention of all the,
candidate? is to conduct a clean and
high toned campaign free from any
mud ?llhglng. This . bi greatly bc,
desired and it ls hoped will be strictly
adhered to during the entire cam
paign. There are certain issues to
be discussed, and the people informed
on such matters aa they are not post
ed upon. So there ?will be plenty bf
topics for discussion other than per
sonal abuso or mud-slinging, and the
intelligencer hopes the candidate, or
the candidates, who begins to lower
thc high plane will receive such a lee
son from the audience that no furth
er att mpt will be made.

ehere are great amounts of wheat and

stock. The people are Independent
and prosperous. Last year it was de
cided to organize a Pennyroyal fair,
and the chamber of commerce got
busy and put up the necessary build

laid off. The fair was one of thc most
successful ever held in that state,
and paid the stockholders almost a
hundred per cent dividend. The peo
ple flocked Into Hopkinsvllle from ev

NA HRH OF THK ORIGINAL STATE H
lt will no doubt surprise moat of
us to realize, when our, attention is
culled to it, how little we know of the
origin of such familiar names as those
of the thirteen original colonies that
declared their independence of Great
Britain and fought the war of Am
erican liberty more than a century
and one third ago. The following
article contains some facts that will
doubtless prove new to many:
New Hampshire was named from
Hampshire, England, from which
country many of the early settlers
Massachusetts was so called from
the Indian word meaning Great Hills
Place, probably from the heights of
land near Boston.
Rhode Island was called Rhode Eye
landt by the Butch because of the red
cranberries which covered the largest
island in Narragansett Bay.
Connecticut was called Quoneckta
cut by the Indians, meaning Long Ui
ver, and the settlers applied it to the
colony, i -i \ *..?.'... ?. : j .y; l' ,i -\
New York,'fl Wt* called New Nether
lands by the Dutch, was changed in
honor of James, Duke of York, to
whom his brother. Charles II gave
large grants in the colony.
New Jersey was named for Sir Geo.
Carteret, Governor of the Island of
Jersey. It was originally called Nova
Caeserea, New Caesar.
Pennsylvania, meaning Penn's
woodland from the Latin.sylvania and
Wi i liam Penn.
Delaware was named from Lord de
la Warr, one of the early proprietors.
Maryland after Henrietta Marla, the
Queen of CharleB I of England, at the
request of the King to the proprie

virgin Queen ot England.

IMPORTANCE OF Itt RAL TELE
Allants May 30.-Special:-Rural
telephones are beginning to play Just
as Important if not more important
part than either rural free delivery
or parcels post. In putting the farmer
cn an economical equality with the
city business man.
The growth of rural telephones
on the lines ot the Southern Bell
throughout Georgia' and other south
ern states is as interesting as a ro
mance. A generation ago the average
farmer was isolated. Today he ia no
there isolated than' .his city neigh
It is directly as, the results ot these
facilities that, the average southern
farmer has developed Into a compe

own products, aa well as a producer
Tho day baa passed forayer when,
tho farmer ' laboriously loads hip
crops on wagons .and takes them to
the County seat and then either sella
them or not at prices which may or
may not be below normal. Today tho
farmer with a telephone uses, the
wires to two or three towns before
deciding where he will market bia
wares; and often makes the actual
salee over the wires before be even
starts to load his wagons.
