TO BE HELD DURING MONTH
OF OCTOBER
WITH COUNTY FAIR
Proposition Is Being Considered
Ey Business Men and Will
Probably Be Worked Out
If none of thc pinna, now In thc
making, uro intcrfcrrcd with, every
man, woman or child boating of An
derson as a birthplace, will bo gh
chance to come uack noun; HOIU'J time
during tlie month of October. Since
thc plans wera -put on foot to hold a
county fair in Anderson this full
some cf the business men have sug
gested that it would also he a splendid
idea to hold a "homo-coming'' week
and then the logical suggestion ap
peared, that the county fair and home
comingweok bo huid at tho came time.
Thin Ia a splendid way to secure a
bigger attendance fur both eventa
than might otherwise to the case and
those in charge of tho fair plans aro
immensely pleased with tho Idea.
It wan said yesterday that there is
yet a little doubt about whether or
not a county fair will ho held this
year, but even if the fair cannot take
place, it is almost definitely settled
that there will be n home coming
week and people around town say
that this will bb oven more delightful
for a majority of the visitors than
will bb the fair. If thc two events are
hold together there will he more peo
ple in Anderson for lilli] event than at
any other time dur im; the winter.
it was said yesterday that commit
tee j Would at once be appointed and
pul to work on their respective duties
and it is believed that thc plan.} for
the weok will soon be In concrete
form and that the exact duty for thc
home coming can lie announced. ,
Meanwhile it IH Anderson people's
busings to begin writing all "ex
cltlzenri" tho piad tidings 'hat they
are expected back here, ff for only
a day, and to bugin now on making
their preparations, ia order that no
hitch can occur.

THRIFTY FARMERS
NEAR ANDERSON
Mr. and Mr?. W. L. Perry Making
Their Farm Near Town a
Garden Spot
Nothing ls prettier or gives a feeling
of greater satisfaction than looking
over a farm well tilled, and seeing
thc forcea of nature controlled In such
a manrer as to conserve thc fertility
of the soil and produce the maximum
crop on a given aroa. In this the far
mer ia king among men, and there ls
a feeling of Independence and sturdy
manhood developed as u consequence
that can be found nowhere else
Among tho well tilled farms located
near the city, and there arc many such
there ls none better than that of Mr.
and Mrs. \V. L. Perry, located two
miles cast of Anderson. Mrs. Perry
is included in this for she is just as
much intreseted in it as her husband
and "hoes her own row" sometimes
literally. They live on Mr. Sam Shel
ton's place and are farming "on
shares.'' Mr. Perry has rented laud
from four owners so us to make up a
good two horse farm.
He has planted this year 53 acres.
Of tilla 27 acres arc in cotton, 12 acres
in ::orn, 13 acres, in forage crops and
1 nero in sweet potatoes. An advo
cate of deep plowing and thorough
preparation of thc soil thc drought ',
which haB wrought such havoc In this
county has not injured Mr. Perry's
crop seemingly but little. One field of
corn will make easily GO bushels to
the acre, and ?3 pretty ard green to :
the bottom. Ills cotton is also much
above the average In his community.
One thing that impresses one on
looking over Mr. Perry's farm IB the
cleanliness and neatness of his prom
Ises, and the fact that every bit of
farm machinery of whatever sort ls
carefully put away ont of the weather.
Ile has two fine.mulJS and every con
venience around the pince.
This small farmer demonstrates on
his farm that he can make money on
rented land . Mr. Perry plowed one
mule himself and hired a negro for
five mouths to plow the other. Ile
arose ut 3:45 a. m., and worked from
daylight to dark. Mrs. Terry ls equal
ly as industrious and il "makes one's
mont li water" to soe the many good
things she has in her pantry, and the.
flocks of pretty "frying-sizo" chickens
running over tho poultry yard.
The prediction'of this newspaper
man ia that Mr. and Mrs. Perry will
soon be living in their own home and
that ero he becomes an old man ho
will bo among tho most prosperous
and independent farmers and business
men In Anderson county. Thrift, eco
nomy and thought will win their re
ward and these are all pharocteristics.

SECRETARIES 'SLOW
IN RETURNING ROLLS
?:-fte
ONLY.vEIpHTEEN WERE RE
CEILED YESTERDAY
OVER 30 OUT YET
First Day For Returning Rolls Has
Passed and Now Only Two Re
main For Secretaries
Acting in accordance with tho rules
of thc democratic convention for this
ptatc, tho secretaries of thc various
democratic clubs in Anderdon CL tm ty
arc now returning their chi)., rolfe ta
S. Uean Pearaian, county chairman.
Mr. Pcnrniari said last night at six
o'clock' that lie had received 18 of the
club, hooke, these being brought in hy
tho secretaries of the following clubs:
Anderson, Ward 2. :i and 4; Belton No.

White Plains.
All told there are 55 clubs in Ander
son county and since only 18 were re
turned yesterday thero will be 87' rolls
to come i- during to?ay and tomor
row. Th-- new rules prescribe that
all foils muBt he In tho hands of the
county chairman within three days
after the roll hooks clone and cs the
books'closed Tuesday thin will give
th/i tiecretWries through tomorrow
to get the hooks in.
A hurried examination oT the rolls
allow that in some cases Hie secretar
ies have been \cry negligent. Tiley
have kept the books in such shape
that it is well night impossible to
read thc sigtin turca, owing io the
smearing of ink over tho page? and
the blotting. In rome cases those who
signed tile rolls failed to pince their
riges opposite their names. This was i
either because they did not know how
tdd they were of Itecasc the secretar
ies failed ,to call the voters attention
to the column which requires jlni age.
In examllng these fbib: yesterday
Lhere was' only ono club roll willi a
signature consisting of initials only, j
This roll came from Pei/.cr and one
voter there fail? 1 to correct his sig
nature after it becuniu known that tho
sntlro signature was necessary. The
chairman said that hi did not know
what ti disposition would be made of
this single Instance, but that ho could
not see how the man could volo, when
the rulos havo been defined a; mean
ing that a man's full name must ap
noar? ?. i .i,. ? iii, ?. i . t. tj?
? '.B?lweon;; Friday* whon ' i'll-Oie rolls
will be in, lind'next Monday, the coun
ty chairman will mak.* a complete
copy of all the names and he will cer
tify tc each one of these copies, then
Lurning it over to the clerk o? court.
A meeting of the. county, executive

ilay, at which time the managers for
tho election will bo chosen, and at thia
meeting a datewillbe set for. the com
mittee to meet and fargo the rous,
In accordance with the rule3. The
new rules merely say that this is "the
committee's" duty and does not spec
ify whether it nhall IYJ the entire exec
utive committco or a sub-committee,
elected by that body! This will be an
important matter for the. executive
committee tb dispose of at Monday's
meeting.
Mr. Pearman said last night that ha
lld not have tho records of. thc votes
cast at tho 55 boxes last year, but'
Crom hl3 examination of the 28 club
rolls now in h.and ho believes that
a full voting strength will bo polled'
In tho coming election. He sayB that;
BO far as he can see hut few voters'
have.failed to enroll their names.- I

GIVE TESTIMONY
"Blue Law" Case Waa Heard Yes
terday, Which Resulted in Jury
Acquitting Defendant
When u jury yesterday tried Norman |
Bprrlss, charged with selling a soft
drink on Sunday while in the employ I
of the Piedmont Cttfe, a verdict of not j
guilty whs returncd'and the defendant i
was discharged. From this it would
appear that a jury-, will not convict
ii clerk for Sn alleged breach of the
"blue laws."
Wheti thc caso was called yesterday
counsel was on hand for the defendant
und the city attorney was present to
take caro of the city's end of the!
case. The most remarkable part of j
the entire trial was the presence of1
A. P. Spence, president of thc Ander-:
son Chero-Cola Company and (.'apt. H.
J. Ranier, manager of the Anderson
Coca-Cola plant, both of whom had
been summoned to give expert testi

These gentlemen testified that their
drinks contain a certain amount of
caffein, which makes the drink for an
habitual user as'mildly exhiluruting
as is coffee or tea. In all probability
their testimony influenced the jury to
a large extent In returning their ver

much interested in road building, in
Conference last night in the rooms of

impoituut river crossings by perma
nent bridges, built lu place of Inad?
quate bridgen and ferries, hy the state
by means of an annuul tax of $5 on
automobiles.
it ls proposed that eight bridges he
built, one n year. Mr. ?hand has pre
pared a map giving the location of tho
proponed bridgen and showing their
advautager. The tax of $5 proposed
by Commissioner Watson will bs $4
mme than the present county auto
mobile tax and will entitle the owner

the bridges and highway upkeep.
Location of Bridges.
?The location of tho proposed bridges
as shown on the map prepared hy Mr.

state road; across the Great Pea Dee
between Florence and Marion; across
the Little Pee Pen between Conway
and Geoigctown; across the Satitoc
between Georgetown and Charleston;
and acrosc the Edlsto between Char

are proposed between Union, Chester,
Lancaster' and Chesterfield,--between
'Dillon and Marlon, between Florence,'

Mr. Hha.-.d r.ay3 in a letter to the
board of directors of the chamber of
commerce:
"Cur Btatc is divided by its river
system .into HOCtions; highway com
munication between which is depend
ent upon use of bridges or ferrloa Lnd
often long causeways across wide
swamps. The Santee, Congarec, Wa
tcree and Broad rivera divido the state
int? two great sections of almost eq
ual area,comm;jncatlon between which
depends upon thc crossing of these
streams. The rivere aro broad and
dcop and wide swamps or bottoms
subject to overflow are often along
their banks, making construction of
highways across them difficult and ex
pensive, and generally beyond the
means of adjoining counties to con
struct; as a result there ic no crossing
of thc Santee by bridge and only one
Torry which is near Its lower end, a
di alance of SO miles In a straight Hue;
one ferry on thc Congaree on thc road
from Columbia to St. Matthews and a
brldso at Columbia; on thc Broad riv
er there is the bridge at Columbia and
no o Hier except ono near the state lino
on the road from Gaffney to York ville,
a distance of 75 mlle;- ; on the Watereo
and Catawba the bridge at Camden is
the only ono we have to the upper
part of Lancaster .county, a distance
of 35 miles. The.Saluda, tho two ?ldla
tos, Tiger, Enoreo and Pacolet are
fairly well supplied with bridges, duo
to thc fact that many narrow places
in the rlv?r vnlloy alford sites for eco
nomical brldgo construction. The
Edlsto, Santee, tho Little and Great
Pee Dec divide the coastal plain Into
five section;:. Tho two Pee Dens, thc
Catawba, Broad and Saluda'divide our
upper boundary country Into seven
sections. On the great Pee Deo Ibero
Is a bridge at Cheraw and three-ferries

AN APPRECIATION
OF MRS. DLECKLEYj
Editor The Intelligencer :
Just a word about the late Mrs.
Bleclcley. .
When II first nsBiinied ny ?Vitien In
Anderson I received un informal lnvl-1
tatton to dine with Mrs. Rleckley and
a few of ber friends: Nothing noel
bc said of the good humor of the party
or thc genuine enjoyment of all, for
tliOBc who enjoyed Mrs. Rleckloy's
hospitality know what a rare hostess
she was. Bet. tho thoughful cru.'tcy
or taking tho newcomer informally
and providing the opportunity for as
sociation under such auspices waa
characteristic of . Mrs. Rleckley. , Suo.
wpUid in\vt lashed at the suggestion
bf this being'a service, ?nd yet how
much good did she do in her quiet,
'unobstruBlvo way! \
As I rotuli Mve. Bieckley she waa
of tue helpful, hopeful, encouraging
sort. I never was In her company
but to be cheered; I never heard hor
speak to any oem except to Bay some
thing good, or to tum conversation by
a Mt of sparkling humor.
Thia 1B not a eulogy, nor a studied
effort. I feol that Anderson bas lom
In the death of Mrs. : Bieckley a fra
graui life, and many of us who knew
her more than casually have sustain
ed a heavy personal loss.
Of Mrs. Blcokley's unique genius
I would rather have more time for
discussion. How she could hold an
audience in her parlor transfixed!
Ono never beard enough. "Nary grit,"
"Dear Consummate Mama," and-many
other oxcoprts have been burned into
my mind ineradicably.
Better than the luminous mind,
though was the radiant spirit.
