ANBEKSON, A CLEAN < ITV
Possibly ono fools that the matter of
a clean city ls being exaggerated Just
now as regards the city of Anderson.
It sn? h a thing a? exaggeration can
be possible when the results are so
fur reaching. There can be no doubt
in the minds of well informed persons
that the achievements of those who
have made a city that is ? lean in other
place is desiruble. What they have
done done und are doing. Anderson
< an do.
The reputation Anderson has over
tli<> State is that it ls a very desirable
city :n which to live. Its cjlmate and
he progreHsiveneBB of its people are
tiling? which make Anderson known
fur and wide. The citizens ;?ro gener
ally well hehuved and law abiding, and
because there IH Just now a great dca.
of comment on conditions here as re
gards the sale of liquor illegally, is
no sign that conditions here are any
worse than In other cities, even much
suiuller than Anderson. The echoes
we have heard from our crusade are
that other places are even worse than
thia city in regard to these matters.
In truth the very fact that Anderson
is having a crusade shows thc city
to be a leader among Others. Shortly
after the crusade Btartcd here a dele
gation of Columbia citizen waited on
the mayor of that city and requested
that steps be taken to rid our Capital
from the presence of this undesirable
element. We find that Greenville needs
a house cleaning along the same Unes,
and Greenwood could profit by a simi
lar experience, and a crusade is being
'onducted in Augusta to have a bet
ter obsorvance of the laws there. We
refrain from mentioning Charleston
in this connection, and the "City of
SucceBs" has not been heard from.
How desirable indeod would be the
knowledge that it wore impossible for
anyone to be subject to any influence
In this city other than the best. Only
u short while ago a college for gir'.s
was started herc. What an advertise
ment for that college would be the sim
pie statement that there is nothing
wrong in Anderson. Parents would
rather send their girls to such city.
Of course we know that conltions sur
rounding Anderson College are as
nearly ideal as lt is possible for them
lo be. but the farther off yonder In a
remote section of South Carolina does
not possess the information we have.
He perhaps has heard only of some
lark In Anderson, or his neighbor has
been here to a convention, and has
seen the effects of the liquor traffic,
thereby giving him his Impression of
"My Town." The effects of a morally
Btrong sentiment In the city on the
hon. -.-seeker has been referred to In
a previous editorial.
Thus -It will be sen that there is
ample ground for the work of the law
.torcera, and those who wouin seo in
Vndcrspn a city beautiful an-i a city

LET I'S REST.
Today is the Sabbath. The thoughts
of all Bhould be turned to other things

Therefore, we snail not tresspasB upon

good lt will do. So, let's go to church
today and forget them all.
THE SCHOOL PAGE.
The school page of The Intelligencer
will be Interesting? Tuesday. There will
be several new schools represented tn

have something from every school In

schools not having sent in anything
will do HO at once. If there is any
event to come off in the future In any
school notice should be given of this
fact in the school page.

AFTER THE TIGERS
If I? interesting nows that cumes
from Andersen to the effect that th?
city council has la-ken hold of the men
who arc in the blind tiger business
ir. that city, and it ls handing out
to them n<>od stuff tines with impris
onment. Thia is as it should be. Nu
place should allow blind tigers to de

We are ?lad to see thut The Daily
Intelligencer is hacking up the coun
cil not only by publishing the names
of the tigers, but in expressions of
endorsement, and of hearty approval.
Tills is no more than any honest news
paper should do, hut it is more than j
some of them have done in the past.

A PEACE PICNIC.
(By Elbert Hubbard.)
Just Buppose thsl three months ago
there had gone abroad over the world
an urgent r?-ouest for big business
ai! factories and stores, everywhere
to grant its helpers one day off with
full pay for a peace picnic.
What would have been the reply of
I'll tell you-it would have been
this: "Ono whole day off for a picnic,
and full pay? We can't afford it!"
The war has been going on In Eu
rope for ten weeks or more, with at
ileast twelve million men taken from
[the ranks of useful labor.
Tho cost, not counting loss of labor,
is thirty million dollars a day. \
And I hope wo dot lia ve. to prove
that every soldier has to be supported
by a laborer.
Going into battle isnt exactly going
to a picnic.
Picnics carry a decided benefit, es-,
peclally where a man takes his wife
and children, or IIIB sweetheart
But even the sophistic apologists
aro at their wits' end to explain the
good of thia war.
And no one yet has come forward
and claimed the credit of beginning lt.

The following will doubtless be of
interest Just now in the light of the I
?mpueuings in me ?JIU world:
"A little while ago I stood by the
grave of the old Napoleon-a niagnifi- i
cent tomb of gilt and gold, fit almost i
for a dead deity-and gazed upon the i
sar copi me u s of black Egyptian marble,
where rests at last"lhe ashes of .bat
restless man. I leaned over the balus
trade and thought about the career
of the greatest soldier of the modern
"I saw him walking upon tho banks
of the Seine, contemplating suicide.
I saw him at Toulon, 1 saw him put
ting down a mob In the streets ot
Paris; I saw him at tho head of the
army of Italy. I saw him crouslng the
bridge Of Lodi wi i.b. ibu iricuio.- in his j
hand. I saw him In Egypt In the |
shadow of the pyramids. I saw him .
conquer the Alps ana mingle the
agles of France with the eagles of the
crags. I saw him at Marengo, at Ulm
and Austerlltz. I saw him lu Russia,
where the infantry ot the snow and the
calvary of the wild blast scattered his
legions like winter's withered leaves.
I saw him at Lclpsis in defeat end
disaster, driven by a million bayonets
back upon Paris-clutched like a wild
beast-banished to Elba. I saw him
escape and retake an empire by :he
force of his genius. I saw li?m upon iho
frightful field at Waterton, where
chance and fate combined !?. wreck the
fortunes of their former king, and 1
saw him at St. Helena,, with ms hands
crossed behind him, gatlue out upon
tho sad and solemn sea.
"I thought of the orphans and wid
ows he had made, of the tears that
had been shed for bia glory and the
only woman who ever* loved him,
pushed from his heart by the cold
hand ot ambition. And I said I would
rather have been a French peasant
and worn wooden shoes. I would
rather havo lived in a hut with a vint

autumn sun. I would rather have oeen
that poor peasant with my loving
wife by ray side, knitting aa the day
died out in tho ?ky-with my children
