ho to train about a, week; could do all these were
ho to try. He doesn't though-I wonder why?
know him like a printed book, as well as though I
were bia cook. I know ho thinks that ho could run
tho universe and call lt fun; lt he could only let a

still he sits around and watti, and on hia merits

The Intelligencer was delighted to welcome the
several hundred citizens who came over last night
to the little "house-war .ling" we had. It was a
genuine pleasure to see the interest those present
felt in the workings of our newspaper plant, and to
feel that their interest was sincere. "Why, I had
no idea that you had such a plant right here in An
derson," was the remark heard on all sides, 'and
I am glad of the opportunity of seeing it." The In
telligencer IB glad of the privilege of showing visi
tors through at any time, and to a person who is
not familiar with the Intricate typesetting ma
chines and the big newspaper press it is educa
tional. Of course with the great crowd who came
in last night it was not possible to explain the
workings of the plant in detail as we shall be pleas
ed to do at any time. So we extend au invitation to
those who were here last n'j ht, and to any others
to "drop In" and see us any evening, and we shall
take pleasure in explsining any part of the machin
ery not thoroughly understood. There are many
persons in Anderson wiro have not seen a news
paper plant in operation and we shall always be
pleased to have such-call and see how a modern
morning daily newspaper is printed.
Those who were here last night and saw the As
sociated Press operator recording the recent hap
penings of the world, to be later put In type and
printed as tho news of the world to be read before
breakfast, will appreciate tho work necessary to be
done, and a nev, i.pap.T will have for such person a
new meaning in the future.
The Intelligencer is the people's newspaper, and
we are always glad to have visitors leel at home
and they are always welcome. Come again and
ANDERSON AND "THE ANDERSON.**
Anderson is to be cougratulated on the opening
of her splendid new theatre., There IB not a finer
one in tho State, and not ono which will give more
pleasure to the people ot any city than The Ander
son will to Anderson. The capacity for play and
enjoyment ls one of the faculties given man by an
all-wise creator, and furnishing proper and l?git
imit? forms of amusement is one of the functions of
a well organized society. The time was when lt
was thought an evil for people to be amused, and
tho Quaker idea of long face and devoutness with
out having the monotony broken with beatbful en
joyment, waa deemed proper and religious. This
Idea has been wonderfully changed, and today In
many churches there are forms of amusement
which a few years ago would not have been tolerat
ed anywhere by the members of the church.' The
Idea today is to give people the right kind of en
joyment inside the church if possible and outside
if necessary. .
As a mean? for amusement, and as an educa
tor few agencies are .more valuable than the
theatre, coupled with the right kind ot motion pic
tures. Of course this means that there muBt be
shown the right kind of plays, the proper comedies,
tragedies and operas. "Holding the mirror up to
nature" In its many forms is quite proper, and high
ly educational. That Manager Bleich, backed by a
healthy public sentiment, will do Otis no one
dnnbts. If he does not he will not long conduct
a popular house. But. knowing ulm as we do we
have no hesitancy In assuring Ute public thai the
attractions at The Anderson will be the beet ob
It was gratifying to have present on the opening
night the very great audience, who were fully in
sympathy with the progressive spirit of the new
theatre building, and to feel that tho public ls back
of the progressive spirit which actuated Chairman
Fowler and the other members of the building com
mittee as well as the liberal supporters who made .
it possible. *
The invocation delivered by Dr. Kinard, president
of Anderson College, wss so good and expressed so
appropriately the thought which should have been
uppermost in the minds ot tho people who saw the
new. theatre in Its true spirit, that wo give lt in
full. The words of the prayer were ss follows:
"O Lord, our Father, tho Fsther ot all men in
every age and clime, the Father of us all, when we
work and when we play, when W6 weep and when
we laugh, look down, upon ns and bless us.
"In thy great mercy thou hast created us with a
capacity tor suffering and a capacity for enjoyment,
and we can worship thee in both.
"We pray thee to help us to remember thee not
only in sorrow, but also in our gladness.
"We thank thee for the roany ways in which thou
hast enabled us to learn the troth, and for all the
moans by which our souls are stirred to sympathy,
lo pity and to noble deeds.
"To night we thank thee especially for the men
ind women, who through their art, upon tbs stage,
save shown us life 'ss it really la, and have awaken
ed in ?us noble aspirations that we might not other
arise have felt. ,
"And now, our Father, the people of this city ,
bave builded them a playhouse, in which they may
gather for the pleasure'that it gives them. We
pray thee to meet with us as we gather bare from
;tlnct with which thou hast so graciously blessed
"We pray thee* to bless this house; let no evil
?bing come nigh it. Make it a power for good, and
not a power for evil in the Ute of this city.
"Instruct and guide those who shall control lt.
o the end that thy name shall be glorified end this > \
people blessed . Amen." ?k
ANDERSON TO THE FRONT.
Our neighbors, tn Anderson are going to vote on 1
& hundred thousand dollar bond Issue tor street
paving. After the experience With mud this winter
lt is Inconceivable that there will be ev?n slight
apposition to the issuing of these bonds. Anderson
ls s splendid city and baa achieved greatness with
out th? aid of good streets. Psvsd streets will put

SHOULD HAVE HCjl'AKE DEAL.
Tbe Intelligencer feeli that every citizen should
have the same privilege and advantages, as nearly
as possible. If the people of the towns and cities
for instance have good streets, and paving, we see
no reason why the people of the country should
not have good roads. , It is Just as essential that
the people of the country districts of Anderson
County have good roads aa for the people of the I
city of Anderson to have good streets. In other j
words we feel that lt is as important for the farmer
living ten miles from the county seat to have
macadam road to drive to town on, and to haul his
produce to market as for the citizen of Anderson to
ride to his office or store on a paved street. We
feel that the farmer's wife should have a good road
to drive to see her neighbor or to go to church,
school or social event. The congregated people of j
a town or city usually have these advantages, and
we see no reason why they should not be extended
to tho people of the) country districts as well. We
believe In a square deal, and we do not think the
rural Inhabitant has a square deal when he is
secluded and shut off from his fellowman by bad
roads for half the year. Hence we are in favor of
the bond issue for good roads in Anderson County.
We favor it for the above reasons and for the ad
ditional reason that the farmer's boy and girl
should grow KO feeling that he or she has not been
discrimina'?d against in the battle of life.
Better pjhools, better churches, and more social
life are a few of the advantages to be derived from
good ronda, and they are eo essential if the farmer
boy and girl are not to begin life with a handicap.
So we feel that reasoning farmers will support the
bond Issue and gladly do so. Yes, Anderson Coun
ty will have good roads if any other county in the

ARMY BOARD ASKS FOR

and Power Than Other
CRy Associated Prou t
WASHINGTON. Feb. 18.-Guns of
greater range and power than any
that could be arrayed against them
were asked for American coast de
fenses in an army hoard report sub
mitted by Secretary Garrison abd
made public today by the house ap
propriations committee. The board
advised that the old type 12-inch
guns and mortars "are not equal In
range and, power to major calibre
Mr. Garrison recommended the im
mediate Improvement of some of the
coast defenses so that the range ot
the old 12-inch guns could be Increas
ed to 20.000 >ards and the board sug
gested that wherever lt was necessary
to construct new works the larger
guns should be 16-inch weapons.
The board's report said in part:
"After full consideration of the
question presented by the secretary of
war the board Ands:
"That the old type 12-inch guns
and mortars are not equal in range
and power to ???jvr calibre guns
"That by minor changes in the car
riage of the old type 12-lnch gun and
by the provision of a certain propor
tion of lighter projectiles, an effective
range'of about 20,000 yards can be
given these guns s that these changeB
should be made;
"That the great majority o four 14
inch guns, with jjertaln slight changes
which have already been ordered and
by the supply of a portion of the pro
jectiles of lighter weight axe suitable
in power and range to meet any that
may now be brought against them.
"That a policy should be adopted
of providing, through annual appro
priations, for such modernising of for
tifications aa will result io keeping
pace' with the improvement in arma
"That in the- cuse of those work?
where modernising Involves ve?y ex
tensire changes ia emplacements, gun
carriages, etc:, it will be policy to
construct new works abd provide hew
armaments adequate for the demands
of the situation.
"That the old works should be
held, when practicable and desirable,
a? a secondary line of defense.
"That the mortars to be Installed
in future should be ot not les** than
12-lnch calibre, wita a range of at
least 21,000 yards.
"That this weapon should he the
numerically preponderant type In our
coast defenses. It must not, however,

Secretary Garrison's statement to
the committee reviewed the program
for construction of coast defense',,
which he said would require $40,000,
"The project as revised to date," he
said, "calls for 1,301 guns and mortars
of calibres from three-inch to 16-inch
inclusive. Of thia number 1,184 or 91

of which, except 16, Are new mounted
