TDK BELTON PAIR
Tho Intelligencer desiree to take
thin opportunity to congratulate the
publie spirited citizens of Hi lton on
the splendid fair held there yesterday.
Too much cannot be said in praise of
the put riot ht and unselfish way in
which these citizens responded to the
call for some of their time and of
their means to make possible the hold '
lug of a fair each year. Not many
communities in South Carolina, espe
cially this year, would have given of
their time and money as liberally UH
-was don? by the people of Helton to
give a one-day's fair. Hut this is the
Anderson county spirit, ns shown In
this section of the county. The splen
did new school buildings and church
es dotting the county from one side to
the other, is further evidence that thin
Ono cannot but think what arc the
possibilities of a fair spirit such as
was evidenced at Helton yesterday.
Give these exhibitors a fair grounds
and buildings in which to hold their
fair, with accomodatlons for their
poultry, liv?? stock and farm products,
and there is no telling what can be
accomplished. The intelligencer would
like to see this fair spirit used and
held as it ls in enthusiasm und loy
alty to tho community. We realize that
it will bo hard to do thlB without a
permanent grounds and buildings,
and lt the good people will
pardon the presumption on the part
of The IuttMigencer, we would suggest
the organization of a fair association
with sufficient capital stock to acquire
grounds, erect buildings and equip
them for holding a fair worthy the
splendid support of' the people mak
ing this and former fairs such a BUC
oesB. Perhaps there ls someone who
will grant lease for long time on 12
to ,15 acres of land In or near town.
A capital stock of 15,000 wilt then be
ample for erecting commodious build
ings and stock pens for housing the
exhibits. Then let there be an entrnce
fee sufficient to pay at least the expen
ses of holding the fair.
While we are making suggestions as
to thia matter, we would not over
look that one relative to a great Pied
mont fair for Anderson and adjoining
counties. The location of this should
be at the county seat, but there need
ho no conflict in these two fairs. Let
the Belton fair continue to be hetd
jvery year as now, but earlier than
the Piedmont fair, so that the exhibits
may be brought on to the Piedmont
fair as la being done thia year in
.tending the exhibits to the State Fair.
H. ]*. GE EB
There was a note of sadness at Bet
on yesterday ca account of the fact
that Mr. H. M. Geer was not out
mingling with his friends and enjoy
ing tho splendid success of the fair,
which institution 1B very near and
lear to him. He has been one o', the
leading spirits in tho organization and
maintenance of this fair and has al
ways been one of Its foremost con
tributors and supporters. Though he
was lying on his bed, stricken by a
aevere malady and unable to sit up, lt
was reported that he yearned to bo
.\t the fair, and it was said that he
announced to his nurse that ho was
;otng to get up and go to tho fair
anyway. Out of respect for him, the
band did not play when marching
past the hotel, and the crowds that
thronged theistrcets wero a blt moro
quiet lt seemed than in other parts o?
.he city. Thousands of persons looked
ip sympathetically at the place, whero
ie la walting for the' restoration of
health, aud if the prayers of a people
jan restore him, his recovery will
he rapid and sure.
EDITOR WAS TOO BUST.
The absence of an editorial on the
cotton situation, and on the war in Eu
rope, may ie noticed in this issue of
The Intelligencer, but the truth of the
matter ia that we heve been too much
Interested In thc Helton fair to note
there is such a thing as an extra ses
sion of the legislature or a war in
Europe. And there seemed to be about
.en thousand people In Belton yester
day of the same opinion. Anyway the
people of Anderson county are Just a
hit too busy lo continue to bother with
'hese foreigu questions much longer,
now that the "new" has woru off. The
only discussion of thia matter we
heard yesterday was when going to
Belton on the train a young farmer
remarked that In his opinion the far
mers were In a blamed eight better
condition, or would be alx months
from now than many small merchante
and business men would be. He said
tbey were not going to starve, and In
six months they would have another
crop ready for tho market, and that
!s his section th? farmers were plant
ing more email grain than ever before.
We thought: "Young roan, you are a
philosopher of th? right kind. May
your tribe Increase." How can you
defeat such optimism as this? And
what ts the use to editorialize such
"European .golf courses on account
of the war,' are being planted to po
"A game approximating galf might

SECOND DAY OF GREEN

Mr. Gibbony spoke on tho subject,

great impression upon tho audience.
Following the conclusion of this

welcome was delivered on the part

A few preliminary remarkB wore
made by the president of the auxil
iary and the opening announcements
were made, following which the ques
tion of how an adult auxiliary class
?should bc conducted was taken up
and discussed at length. This proved
to be quite a feature of the morning
service as did the discussion yester
day alternoon along the same line,
relating to the manner in which to
conduct the class for children.
Following tho conclusion oj.' the
morning service yesterday, members
of the auxiliary were entertained at
1:30 o'clock at a delightful luncheon,
tendered them at the home of Mrs. R.
C. Webb. This was a very pleasant
Jeature of the occasion.
The afternoon session was full of
interesting discussions and every
member present gained some help
ful and valuable knowledge from the
suggestions and Ideas advanced by
One of the decided features of the
.lay for thc Women's Auxiliary was
the annual sermon, preached to that
body last night by Rev. Charles W.
3oyd. rector of the Church of Our
Saviour, of Rock Hill. Mr. Boyd, is
one of tho best known ministers in
the State and ho has a wide reputa
tion as an able speaker. He is a pul
dt orator of real ability and his et
on last night was pronounced a
?ii ist er piece. Mr. Boyd. dealt at
length on the work being dono by the
members of the auxiliary and he
complimented tho earnest, workers on
what they are accomplishing.
Tho sermon last night wus attend
ed by a large number of visitors, as
veli as Episcopal ians, and Dr. Boj***

after the war that the people had
gone wild on the subject of planting
cotton. Thereupon he determined
that he would raise what his neigh- j

wheat, oats and peas, and raised pigs,

had something to . sell which his
