DURING THE DAY
Negro Boy and White Boy Run
Over in Different Parts of
Town by Autos
(From Sunday's DIaly.)
So far as wus known around town
last night only two accidents occured
In Anderson yesterday. A negro boy
was run over by an automobile near
the Orr mills yesterday, the machine
passing entirely over the boy's body,
but fortunately he was not much In
jured. The man driving the machine
picked the boy up quickly and brought
him to town where medical attention
was given and it was discovered that
he was not badly hurt.
A youngster riding a bicycle was
run over on the public square yester
day afternoon by an automobile but
he was struck a glancing blow by the
machine and he suffered but little
damage. HIb bicycle was considerab
ly torn up but the man driving tho
car gave him $5 and doubtless the boy
was glad that the accident occurred.
With theeo two exceptions the 'police
department had beard of no further

"STRAIN INU AT A ON AT
SWALLOWING A CAMKK"
Chemical analysis of coffee, tea and
Coca-Cola as perved in the home, at
restaurants and at soda fountains,
shows that coffee and tea contain ap
proximately twice a? much caffeine
as does Coca-Cola. In other words,
two glas ses of Coca-Cola are approx
imately equivalent to one cup of cof
fee or tea so far as the amount of
caffeine is concerned.
The only other material difference
in chemical composition is that both
tea and coffee contain tannic acid, a
rubstance found quite generally in
plants, whereas Coca-Cola does not.
Onna-?ola r.my therefore lie describ
ed ar an "Improved Cnffelne-contaln
lng beverage" In which the tannic
acid has been left out. the enffeino re
duced in quantity and a delightful
combination of fruit flavors added.
To UBe tea or coffee and eschew Coca

Editor The Intelligencer.
America, from its tlrst settlement,
lias lieen advertised t<> the world as
the "home of the free, and the land
of the brave." "It pay* to advertise"
and this advertisement has-been the
cause of bringing to tills new country
hundreds of thousands of liberty lov
ing men and women -who by their
intelligence nnd labor have help
ed to form an empire of freemen?
and whose descendants have proven
most loyal and patriotic citizens.
Hut of late year- there have been
many dissension? among our people?
and trivial at first, but ranstuntly
growing?which have finally assumed
a character that bodes no good for n
liberty loving republic.

will lore rieuse thousands of votes
in the coming election. Not atislied
with new club lists, the voter is re
quired to sign his full name und give
a complet.' account of himself from
the day he was born. It is claimed
thut the new rule Is as fair to one side
as to the other. Nobody beieves this.
The banker nnd the merchant (as a
rule antl-Illeas ?), read the dally pa

Not so with the farmer, laborer nnd
mill operative. Many an* not readers
of papers and would not have the time
to rend if they were subscribers. Aa
a rule, the secretaries of the clubs
over the state are anti-Hlea-e and I
am told that when a Hlease man calls
to sign the club book nnd signs only
his initials that some secretarie'

the voter that he mu-t sign bis full

secretaries keep,'their club books bid

with such excuses: "Ob. I left the
book at home. I'll bring it up to mor
row." And tomorrow never comes
unless the Blease voter flatly de
mands his rights.
I beard one Blease voter nay that
It was necessary for him to threaten
to do bodily 'harm to a certain secre

this method la continued, will result

To show the indifference voters are
displaying In the matter of enrolling
their names on'club books, T. was in
Pelzer on the 4th and was told that al
though that preplpct voted several
hundred?more tt?an any. other one
point- out side-the city of Anderson,
only about 60 voters,had enrolled their
names. They have only a few days?
until the 2">th of t^is month?In which
to do so. This is,,only a fair sample
of conditions existing all over the
state and thousands of good citizens
will sleep over their rights and not
get to vote on Augu-t 25th.
When one viewouthp absolute apathy
?the colossal -nul consummate indif
ference which the. overage voter ex
hibits in the selection of public oflic
ials it is distressingly astounding.
The rural voter ; Is a busy-man?
work? six days in, a week?goes to
church on Sunday, hears a sermon on
temperance?returns home, feeds the
stock, and gees to bed. He has no j
time to study politics and many leave !
that to the professional politician.
While he is plowing hlB land, or har
vesting his crop the political slate

to fill each office?trading one for an
other, but always retaining some one
lrienuty to his own plans and schemes.
Every public official is elected by
the people, otherwise ho would not
hold the office. -The trouble is, the
average man sits down and permits
the politicians to select the candidates
and makes no protest until It la too
late lo put in tha man of his choice.
It does no good to kick then. Just as
long as this prevails, the people are
at the mercy of political schemers and
slate-makers?nnd men will be elect

Worth cutting, it, Is not wise for the
average man to commit himself to
vote for any certain candidate until
lie "looks over" the men and weighs
the merits of each one carefully. They
permit themselves to become pledged
to support either Major Teetotaler, a
prohibitionist, or Colonel Twoquarts,
an anti-prohibitionist (as the voter
happens to prefer), when in fact
neither the major or the colonel hold
the rlightest claim to the. office. Their
sole qualification consist? in the fact
that the major has-discontinued the
use of whiskey because It makes him
sick?and It makes.; the colonel sick

the senate, we want to see a success
ful fight made on those negroes hold
ing federal positions In the different
government buildings as well as a law
enacted that will bar a negro from
being an officer in-the regular army.
Dont many people , down .this way
know, that there are many negro lieu
tenant F and captains In-the regular
army and that when they pass a white
private, it is necessary for the white
man to salute the nesro officer, which
Is nothing more or less than raising
bis hat to a negro man. When a white
private fails to.salute his negro su
perior officer, he ? arrested and re
primanded. We have heard much
