Col. "Billy" Banks.
Who was it said that '"The
world is better for his having lived
in jt?" Well there is one sure
thing. Anderson is better for Col.
"Billy" Banks having lived Jiere,
and (here is great regret that he
could not have lived here forever,
He made Anderson his town in
every sense of the wofd, and did
everything possible for the ad
vancement of his adopted cit? He
has left a lasting monument in the
brilliant lights bearing the worlds,
"Anderson is. My. Town," whicti
was erected by his enterprise, and
is the first thing seen on entering
the city, the sentiment all loyal
Andersonians are proud to an
nounce to. the world. We hop*
?ai Coi. Banks may bewith u;
again at some future day. The so
ciety of Anderson is also sus
taining a great loss in the removal
of the Banks family to Columbia;
We ate glad that they have Uvec
with us, and sorry that they, are
to leave' us. Wherever they maj
go fhev will have the eood wisher
and love of the Anderson people

(International Newa Service.)
Antwerp, Belgium. An Engllst
woman. Miss Lor iso Mack, a well
known writer of Jetton, has wrlttei
a vivid description ot this ancient soa
port in wartime, which the Germant

the haven of thousands of refugees
Belgians, British and Am orleans. Th?
capital of Belgium was transferred
here from Brussels, and German Zep
peltns brought the city into promi

at night Miss Mack writes:
"81owly, painfully, through the blas
lng summer day, our long, brown train
goes creeping towards Anvers. An
vers! The name has grown In'o ai
emblem of hbpe In these sad v ays
when the Belgians are fleeing for theil

flights to the Ineffable peace and se

"Ah, but when a soldier comet

would gladly give our seat or oui
standing room up to a 'Soldat,' and
when our^wonnded soldiers from Ma

We squeeze ourselves to nothing.

S coming to Antwerp. Soldiers are ?1
errwbcTV, armed to Ute hilt, end stan
and implacable. It fe a terrible affair
to set into Antwerp. You watt and
wait and wait, and at last you cot
to a soldier. You show your passport
and he reads lt slowly, oh, so slowly,
while two soldiers stand on each side
ot yon, their bayonets horribly near.
What are you coming to Antwerp fort
Where are you going? Where do you
come from? Explain your presence.
And explain you must, or never will
you get In to that inner line of bayo*
nets that yet awaits you.
"Out of the station at last, safe
through it all, famished, worn out, but
happy at having really arrived at one's
goal. Into the restaurant a crowd of
priests come hurrying, their long,
black robes flapping heavily, and soon
they are begging for my Dally Mall,
that I bought at Ostend. They hang
over the pictures of the British troops
! arriving !n Ostend, and presently,
looking up, I discover a curious sight
One by one all that restaurant-wait
ers, customers, managers and all
hsve crept towards the priests' table
and are craning their heads to catch
a glimpse of what mean more to them
than anything else - pictures - for
they never have pictures in their pa
pers, nover any pictures at all, and as
many ot them cannot read, these pho
tographs are life to them.
Ready fer the Siege.
"Antwerp ls crowded. Her streets
are full wherever you'go. Walled tn
all around with magnificent fortifica
tions, oho stands ready for siege. Sol
diers and gendarmes are everywhere.
At every third step you oro called on
to halt at the point of a bayonet.
"How beautiful Antwerp ls. She has
a glorious beauty all her own. In
the golden, blazing sunlight thousands
of banners are floating In the wind,
enormous banners, hanging out of
those great, white houses that stand
in the magnificent avenuos lined with
acacias, hanging out of all the shops
and bouses along the Chaussee de Ma*
lines, hanging even from the cathe
dral-banners, banners, they ere ev
erywhere. Hour after hour ono drives
about and there are bannen alway
gold, red and black, floating every
where. That black gives a curiously
majestic If somber look to th? city
I confess I don't quite like It, and If
I were a Belgian I would raise heaven
and earth to have the black taken out
of cy national flag.

Into the streets again. It ls eight
o'clock. The city has drawn down all

burn in the streets. No lights show
In the houses. All the cafes and res
taurants are in darkness. Through tho
darkness, filled always with a shiver

stifling August heat. And over all ls
? silence. In silence the guardB stand

t where faint lights are dim behind the

darkness, so poignant and significant,
grow too much for one's nerves, and
the streets empty, and wa will go

hausted by our emotion to care much

"Early next norning, while the dew
