What Others Say
Tile Tennessee Affair.
Tho Dring on the Tennessee, or a
launch of the Tennessee, at Smyrna,
hy the Turks, is on ugly incident but
one not likely to cause serious em
barrassment to tho United States.
While signs rre abundant that Tur
key scarcely bas an orderly and re
sponsible government, it is to be ex
pected that the Sultan will offer the
necessary reparation for the outrage.
That the Turkish government delib
erately would seek war with the
United States, or that Germany, a
power with which Turkey is allied, to
all practical purposes, in the present
war, would condone so crazy a policy
is not to he thcjght of.
The United States would have noth
j lng to gain lnl dignity by employing
precipitately severe measures against
a country struggling under what is
little better than mob rule, so a paci
fic and early settlement of the Ten
nessee affair may bo looked for.

A Sensible President.
It was a good thing that tho White
House is occupied by a president
who had enough self respect not to
let a buck negro from Boston insult
him, without calling him down. One
thing easily leads to another. Mr.
Roosevelt, when president, forgetting
the Southern blood that is in his
veins and wishing to cater to the ne
gro voter, had Booker Wnshine^on to
dine with him in the White House.
This Incident, no doubt, emboldened,
the Boston darkey to take liberties
with President Wilson. The pres!
dent, while observing all the pro
prieties of the occasion, administered
such a rebuke to the colored gentle
man that a like offense will never
take place again In the White House

Alphonse and Gaston act with Book

Did you ever steal a fox?

Yesterday afternoon James T. Rob
I crts, probably the most famous -fox
hunter . in the whole, shining world,
blustered into Magistrate Broadwell's

that he had been swindled out of 85

companied by* two members Of the
carnival company now exhibiting in
Anderson. One was j a ."down east

and between them they began tb ex
plain to: the . magistrate that a man
named "Rock" (that was hie only
name, so far aa they, knew) had sto

demanded that Mr. Roberts return the
fox and he,was willing to do this but

And there's where the trouble be
gan.- Tho magistrate searched through
eyery law book on his shelf: He found
that it was a misdemeanor to steal
chickens, eggs, butter, geese, hogs,
horses, mules, cows .and almost every
known -kind of animal and product
but nowhere in his books could ho
find any mention of it being a crime
to steal a fox. He searched- under
every heading in the book, but noth
ing doing. No reference was made to
foxes. Thereupon the magistrate de
manded that some more complete
name bo furnished him for the want
ed man than '*Roeky." The magis
trate opined that this was no sort of
name to use on a warrant .and he .
wanted to know more. The affair fin-*
ally came to an end when the .magia- .
trate issued a warrant for "John,
