Tho hardest word, to pronounce in

does simplified spelling help, -either;
the word must be spelled with let

th|ng called"^Ohe's duty." Of course
there is s,.stnse_ in which ery.ags
la an age Of transition, but then again
there is a sense in which certain
points in hictory are pivotal?cross
words of dcBtjny. Such an epoch .if.
ohr own, such ah era Is the present,
such a time Is now. Behold all things
have become new?from the. new
theology of Reginald Campbell to the
new woman of Ellen Key. Today we
have a now psychology taught by G.
Stanley Hall,- the new philosophy ot
William James,?tho new metaphysics
of Henri Bergson, the new national
ism of Roosevelt and the new freedom
Of Wood row Wll?on. And besides
there is the* new efficiency of Taylor,
Emerson and Brendels, the new,.in
dustrialism of Georges Sorrel, tho
new militancy of Mrs. Pankhurst, the
new penology, the,pew chemistry, the
new physics, the new art movement
and, at last, the new morality, or
What X will c?l). tho new Justice,
"Social Environment and Moral
Progress," has lately come from the
press and it Is a scathing criticism of
present day society, written by g
trenchant pen. The contention of his
book is that, while there may be in
finite variation, modification, move
ment' and change, there Is no real
progress from a\o to age. If I may
preErume to reply to so illustrious a
thinker I should say that all depends
on, vf hat .are' your c rite: a of. progress
and what Is your measuring rod. I
know of no . better test ing tube than
our-definition'of duty Tho smooth
ness and accuracy of our translation
of abstract duty Into concret life?
this will help us to estimate rightly
the times in which we live.
Never* .perhaps, baa tho world been
so ill at ease as today; never so de
termined to find a Way, or make one,
out of the woods. This, as I see-it.
Is the deep significance, the true in
wardness of the present onrest e^neng
all the nations of the world and all
the classes of society. Our conscience
hurts us. But some ope .will ask, has
society a conscience? Indeed It has,
and just now it 1b working overtime,
double shift. _ The still small voice
thunders llke'the sound of many wat
ers. Right, and wrong at. last are so
cial vaines,. Morality has been defined
by David 8 trau sa as man's relation to
man, while' religion consists of man's
relation to the universe. , If, then,
morality, :' righteousness, right and
wrong 1b.'a s?c'sl s^at^p.apd. if con
science is the appraised and collec
tion at the port to see that none of
its succeed in smuggling through life,
cheating-bur way. then what more nat
ural than that we should develop a
social conscience?which Is precisely
what-we have done. Beware of delus
ions about duty. Dont be so foolish
as to,try to eaeapo duty. . Don't post
pone?for Bufilclcnt for each day' Is
the duty thereof. And finally the
plain path that grows brighter and
brighter unto the perfect rd?y, the
straight'and narrow way, Is the street
called duty. aud; leads direct to the
gates of the- city of happiness. There
rtro those ^who, wearied with what Ar
sc.ld Bennett has SO ap?y called "do
mestic dalllnesa" and relentless rou
tine, would delude and deceive them
selves as to the reality of life by deny
ing duty. Truly the wUh Is father to
Uio thoughL As well deny gravitation

ona and motions of the planets.
V.'Of: course If you were alone in the
world?single, cell?you might man
ago somehow to squeeze through life
without duties. But you aro not alono,
and it ,t? alWaya saner and braver to
fceet thte- facts. It is the last limit of
tolly ; to deny duty and . passionately
aver thai you will 4lve your own life

The month of November gets Its
name from the Latin word for Nino,
"Uovem," being originally the ninth
. It is known as the month of "leaf
fall/' the wind month,1 or 'sacrifice
month or slaughter month because of
the usual custom of supplying the
winter's supply of meats during this
month. ? This month has long been the
month for the annual Thanksgiving
BorviccH, but the first National
Thanksgiving for peace was celebrat
ed on the 2iM of November, 136S.

Did You Mean It ?
Not long ago you heard a Piano so
harsh and metallic in tone that you
wondered how it came to be in so nice
a home.. You .vowed ! you would
never own such a piano. DID YOU
Were you in earnest when you heard
at another home a Piano so beautiful,
so sympathetic and melodious that it
fairly touched your heart and you said,
1 want such a Piano. ONE MAY
HAVE COST AS ' MUCH AS THE
OTHER; One was sold as a "just as
good." The other sold itself because
It was a MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.
Every Piano in our stock from
Wess?r down, has character and indi
vidually, a Piano of class by right of
birth and breeding. That is something
unique, something to be seen nowhere
else in Anderson,
And it means that a person having
only $200 or $225 to spend on a
Piano, can come with the certainty of
getting thej very best instrument, p jssi
ble to'make for that* amount of money.
There are standard low priced Pianos
just as there are standard high priced
instruments. THE STANDARD
PIANOS ARE HERE; THE WORLD'S
BEST FOR EACH PARTICULAR
We C?ti Do lt
We buy our pianos DIRECT from the FACTORY paying
SPOT CASH for them which makes a GREAT BIG differ*
ence in the COST to US. In this manner we are enabled to
name YOU ^prices .which were NEVER named here before
for the SAME GRADE of instruments.
Our pianos are Guaranteed for TEN YEARS by ourselves |
and the Manufacturers,* too.
We Sell F or Cash or on
Let this be your invitation to come and see. It will be a
delight to you and a pleasure to us
