Every man in Anderson is able to
nive something lo the college. I.< t's

of love for this splendid institution.
We should nil feel like giving some

Recently we called attention of thc
people of Anderson that Only 1T>0 dogs
In Anderson have any legal right to
life, because they are the only ones
on which taxes have been paid. All
other dogs in the City should be
killed, if their owners do not think
rtnough ojr dhvm to. pay the taxes on
theuv The lav.- says in part':
"Section 62. Evory owner or keeper
nt a dog shapp pay an annual tax of
$1 for each dog kept in the city 'of
Anderson, which tux shall be paid at
the same time and placo that other
taxes are paid each year; and a re
turn thereof shall be made at the
same time and place that other prop
erty ls returned for taxation. The
owner or keeper shall promptly re
port and pay the tax on any dog
brunght into'the olty after the time
for making returns or paying the tax."
The hands 'of the city government
should he upheld by every good citi
zen. The law pr?vidos:
"Seellon CG. Tho city council shall
have the right to prohibit dogs from
running at large on tho public
streets whenevor the public welfare

CONSIDER "THE KNOCKER
One of our exchanges said recently:
"Newspaper men have a hard time.
If wc say nico things in our paper,
we seldom hear from them, but if we
make a mistake, or it some one fails
to seo what they think we ought to
see, the paper is criticised." j
That's too sadly true. Its an old
saw "that the doctor burles his mis
takes, but tho newspaper man can't,
hide bis." Did it ever occur to you,
how few mistakes creep into tho news
papers. "In yesterday's issue of The
Dally Intelligencer, there were nearly
200 separate articles and items. IB
there a merchant in Anderson who
can can go oft day after day, wrap
ping up 200 separate articles without
making some mistakes?
Newspaper workers are a proud
race of people. They love their work.
They ure jealous of its good repute.
And whenever you hear a sore head
or a failure, or a cheap job hunter,
knocking newspaper, don't believe
what he says. He might be the big
gest and meanest liar In creation. The
best .way 1B to read the newspaper rind
see %br.-y?>ur?el?...what it is. Thelman
who can't usc newspapers for \ his
selfish ends abuses them.
THE SILK .MILLS.
With the possible exception of
China, for which no complete statistics
aro available, the United States ls
now the largest Bilk manufacturing
country in tho world. This position
has been taken from and maintalaed
against France since 1905.
Thc development of the silk manu
facturing, industry of thc United
States during tho last few years ls one
of the'most interesting features of tho
.country's progress. The phenomenal
growth is shown by tho fact that,
sjnea the civil war the increase in the
gross value 'of ouch products is meas
ured by tho difference between slight
ly less tbun $4,000,000 and nearly
While cotton is thc native staple of
this country yet It may be surprising
to Bomo to know, the cotton manufac
turing industry is only six times as
large as the Bilk manufactures. Now

Some of our waste bills back on tho
river that may not produce even Ber
muda grass might bc given over to
producing mulberries and Bilk worme.
The original Huguenot settlers of
this section produced Bilk here easily.
Some of the Symptoms of Approach
Many people are sufficiently familiar
with weather lore to know some of th?
signs that herald rata, says Tid Bits.
The repeated performance of its-toilet
by thc domestic cat,, the - apparent
nearness .of distant objects, unusual
activity on the part of the snails in the
garden-sucji- Indications are familiar
to most people.
But there are other signs more easi
ly to bo noted "by home-keeping town
dwellers. Here are a few, as cata
logued by a weather prophet.

AN ?l!TO OX TWO WHEELS
Thc (?yrdscopc ls Apulied to Motor
(From the Literary Digest.)
An automobile, standard size, run
ning on two tandem wheels like a bi
cycle, and kept in balance by a gyro
scope, has.bsen invented by a Russian
named Scliilowsky and is described by
H.. Forbin In La Nature. Mr. Forbin
note? that neither the much-heralded
gyroscope railway of Louis Brennan
nor the improvements made on lt by
Schorl, the Berlin editor, have been
put into use ss commercially practica
ble. He haB hopes for this new modi
fication, and gives in detail his reasons
for them. Schilpwsky's monorail dif
fers little In apeparance from its pred
ecessors, his changes in the mecbain
ism not being ordinarily visible.' In
addition, however, he has built, on tho
same principle, the motor car noted
above, which would appear to be a
new departure. Says Mr. Forbin:
The characteristic principles of thia
vehicle areas follows:
1. The-gacollne motor of the par al
so operates the gyroscope, whose
weight ls only one-tenth of that of the
2. Tho energy consumed by the
gyroscope ls 1 1-4 horsepower.
3. The disk turns at the rj^g 1,
200 revolutions a minute. jT w .> *x
4. The gyroscope takes up little
room and requires no manual control.
5. By using flanged wheels instead
of pneumatic tires, the vehicle can be
used eu one of the rails of a railroad
Such a vehicle presents great ad
1. Absolute suppression of lateral
.shocks - on thc worst roads, accom
panied by a notable dlmunltlon of fa
tigue for the. passengers- and' of Wear
for tho car and its parts. The dura
bility of thc motor is Increased, and
lighter materials may be used In the
construction of the car.
2. The tractive effort is diminished
consequently there is nn economy of
energy and of fuel. With capacity for
an equal load, a less powerful motor
may ba 'used. .
3. The bicycle, automobile runs eas
ily over tho narrowest roads.".
4. Tho gyroscopic . stabilization al
lows the vehicle to take horizontal
curves at high speed.
We have seen the bicycle automobile
run In the -environs of. London over
good and hud roads alike, carrying
six passengers, including the inventor
and his c. lu fleur; and we admired the
(ease-the animal) intelligence-with
which thc heavy machine.regained.its
balance, without 'tt?? ' intervention of
Its driver, whenever a curve or an In-:
equality of the road disturbed Its
cquillbrim. _ :- j : \ ; . ' ;
A COLONY OF SPIDERS.
Colonel Roosevelt ITpou Busy Insect
Provers of South America, j
At our camping place we saw an
extraordinary colony, of spiders, It
was among some dwarf trees, standing
a few yards apart from one another
by tho water. When wo reached.the
camping place, early in tho afternoon
-tho pack train did not get in until
nearly sunset, just ahead of the rain
no spiders wore out They were un
der tho leaves of the trees. Their
- abs were ten ant less and indeed for
ute most part were broken down. Bot
at dusk they came out from their hid
ing place?, two or three hundred ot
them In all, and at once began to re
pair the old and spin new webs. Each
spun its own circular web, and Sat
tn the middle; and each web was con
nected., on several sides with other
webs whllot those nearest the -trees
.were hung td^thettjftj b?.spun 'TOMS
so to Bp e ak, . ? Tho'result waa a, kt nd
of sheet of web consisting of g?bre?
of wheels in each ot which the ownei
abd proprietor sat^ and there ,W?f*j
half d' dozen' such Bh^^?ch ?fton?M
lng fbetween two. trw^^Th^webal
could hardly be'seen and the effect
waa of ?coros of big, formidable-look
ing spiders poised in midair, equidis
tant from one another between each
pair .of tress. When darkness and
rain fell thor were:still opt, fixing their
webs and pouncing on tho occasional
insects that blundered Into" the webs.
I have no question that they an? noc
turnal; they certainly hide in the
daytime, and it seems impossible teat
they can come but daly for a few min
utes at dusk. .'
