Tin: SIN OF LYING.
Ir? conversation with a gentleman
yesterday the remark was made that
there are many sins being committed
In Anderson, but that in his opinion
there are none of them comparable
to the Bin of lying, and especially i
does this seem true in Anderson at
this time, according to the gentleman.
Ile stated that one hardly knowe
what to believe about anything one
hears, thnt there are so many per
Bons whose motives aro 'r-pugned,
and who are accused of making mis
statements, that lt is indeed an alarm
ing condition which confronts the
people pf Anderson. Not only is this
true in reference to ordinary con
versation on tlie street, In which, per
haps, unintentionally facts aro exag
gerated, but lt extends to business
matters. In driving bargains, often
the principals indulgo In misrepre
senting the merits of their wares, in
order to make a Bale or a trade.
But perhaps the most objectionable
kind of untruth 1B that which has to
do with the character of our fellow
man. A whispered v. ord has ruined
the reputation of many a woman, and
man, for that matter, and has caus
ed deepest sorrow. How careful, then,
ought we to be when Btatlng an oc
currence ns a fact.
Doubtless our readers are familiar
with.tho fable of the ancient ruler
who directed his servant to prepare a
dinner for his guests of the best
things in the world. Tho dinner con
sisted of tongue. Tlie next day the
order was changed to the "worst
thing in the world," and again ton
gue was served. Calling for an ex
planation, the servant said that he
had. Indeed, dono as his master had
required. For what iB there in the
world of more comfort, and can do
more good when properly used than
the tongue; And, also, what is there
that can causo more anguish and suf
fering than the tongue when used to
pilli down the good,, or to ruin the
reputation of tho Just
Shakespeare believed in speaking
the' truth and the following quota
tion shows what he thought of the
person who would speak Ul of his
"Who steals my purse, steals trash,
But who filches from me my good
Roba me of that which not enriches
. j; him,
But leaves me poor indeed.'.'
As a thought.for this Holy day, let
us pauso long enough to look Gils
matter of mi 3 represen tatton square
ly in tho face, and when convinced of ,
the Bin of falsely speaking, 1st us re
solve that henceforth we shall speak 1
only the truth,

TOLLS COMINO IN'
From August 1 to November I, ac
cording to ligures made public la
Washington, tho tolls collected from
men liant vessels passing through the
Panama ('anal umountcd to a little I
over $735,000. No one, of course, un
derstands this record to be anything
like normal. It is certain that, with
the revival of business that is tuking
place in this country as well as in
other countries not at war, the
amount of tolls collected at the canal
will increase very largely and 'very
rapidly, because the amount of freight
that will be curried over this route
This item of nearly three-quarters
of a million dollars in three months
goes directly into thc treasury of the
United StatcB, thanks to the act of
Congrus? recently passed by the
Democrats under the lead of Presi
dent Wilson, repealing the lolls ex
emption law of 1912 which owed its
existence to Republican votes. Had
this tolls exemption repeal act not
been, passed by far thc greater p,>? fon
of thia sum would have gone into
the coffers of the shipping Interests
Most of tho tonnage upon which tolls
were paid during the period mention
ed was' carried in the coastwise trade
and would.^undcr the free provision
of the Republican, law, have paid no
tolls for the privilege of passing
through the canal, built at the ex
pense of all thc people.
The American people built the ca
na) with their own money. Thoy have
a right to charge toils for the use
of that canal. To allow ship owners
to use it free would be purely and
simply to give to them the benefit
of taxes paid by ail the people. It
would be as clear a case of graft as
if the shipping interests had donat
ed the thousands of dollars repre
sented, by a direct appropriation of
One of the significant things about
the situation is that, in spite of all
tho wild warnings of the. Hearat-la
den newspapers of last spring ns to
what dire consequences would follow,
the repeal of the tolls exemption,
there is nothing but satisfaction in
the country over tho-operation of the
tolls law-except among those who
have millions invested in ships which
have to pay the people for the use of
the people's, .canal.
CLUBS AND TIGERS.
Of course we. wish every possible
success for the movement that has
been ; launched In Columbia to - sup
press the blind tigers,' but we think
it Will not amount to mitch.' It ls evi
dent that the city administration Is
not very deiermhittl on thc subject,
and so far lt appears that only a
very small part'of the public is at all
Interested. ' ' '
The trouble is that there are so
many social clubs in Columbia, com
posed of wealthy and influential peo
ple, that the police will not dare try
to molest them, and. the blind tigers
will never be supressed so long as
these high-class social daubs are al
lowed to exist
That ls the plain truth, and most
people realise lt. The dividing line be
tween a social club and a blind tiger
ls not easily discernable to many peo
ple. The social club is a convenience
for those who are ablo to belong tc
lt, and many a poor man cannot un
derstand why he should not be allow
ed to by' whiskey from a blind tiger
lt a rich man ls to be allowed to gel
lt at his social club. The answer la, ol
Course, that the blind tiger ia oper
ated for a profit while the social club
Is not, but the answer is not very sat
isfactory when ono consldeis that the
sole object of the man who belongs tc
the club and the man who patronizer
the tiger is to get .liquor.
At .any rate .-.the distinction Mtweeti
clubs and tigers will never be satis
fying .to the average run of people
and there will be tigers Just as long
as there are clubs. If the officers per
mit tho clubs to exist the people will

A PRAYING SOLDIER 4
IA dispatch relative to the arrival a
Ascot of the body of Field Marsha
Lord Roberts, who died rather sud
ienly at the headquarters of the Brit
Ish forces in France last Saturday
contains these words: "The body wa
placed in tho small room in his rest
dence in which the great soldier wat
wont to conduct family prayers."
It ls good to kn g w that this gr ea
British soldier waa? a praying mac
Somehow lt raises him in the estima
lion ot tho ope perhaps who is not a
familiar with the brilliant recon
which he made and the deluge ot hon
ora which were his during bis lom
career, it ls pleasing to know the
among the master minds directing th
titanic carnival of murder now rag
lng In tb? .European slaughter bona
there waa at least one who was give
to bending the knee before Him wh
holde the millions ot earth tn th? ho!
law ot His hand, , .
.In reading ot thia prayerful Britts
soldier one calls to mind tho sublih
ity ot character of "Stonewall" Jae!
son, who, it has been Bald, read his
Bible and prayed every night during
tho fierce struggle between the sec
tions. And one calls to mind the sweet
ind gentle countenance of Lee, itself
an index of the Godly soul reposing
within. The greatest murders of men
in the world's history may not have
been religious. We know that Attila,
thc Scourge of God, was not, Napo
leon, Caesar, Hannibal, Alexander and
the others- not mentioning them in
the order of their day- may have
ben, but we aro inclined to think not.
V/hy is it that Leb and Jackson are
the idols of their people, and why is
the name of Lord . Roberts revered
throughout the kingdom on whose
possessions the sun never sets? Does
one think of Attila, Hannibal, Napo
leon, -or any of those as "idols" of the
people? Somehow, in our own mind,
wc don't think of the two types of sol?
dlers in the same way. Is it not the
fact that Len, Jackson and Lord Rob
erts were more than mere soldiers,
but were enlisted under the bander
of the Great King as well, that we
think not of them as mere destroyers
of human life but great men, good
and kind and true?

' (Smut la one of tho factors that ls
helping bring about thia change.
The smut problem ls a serious one;
The winter wheat thlB year, through
large areas, 'will, average 15 to 25 per
cent of stinking smut. And this in
spite of the ract that tho majority of
the farmers treat their seed with cop
per sulphate or formaldehyde by the
most approved methods. Whoo this ls
not done, aa much as.76 per cent of
Gie crop may be taken.
(Evidently the smut remains virile
in the soil from year to year and in
fects the clean seed-after planting.'
Besides the great reduction In yield
caused by GU s stinking smut it low
ers the'market value of the.rest of
the crop: many carloads every, year
being discounted entirely and thrown
out for feed on account ot the smut
Nor ls this all. The smut when dry
cou tains 77 per cent of volatile, com
busUble -material. .This makes lt a
dangerous factor In threshing. ,Tho

There are two possible solutions to

to breed a smut-resistant wheat; the
other is to brcaw up the big wheat
