OI R NEW STATION.
Anderson should feel proud of her
new passenger station. The opening
this morning of the new station for
the Blue Ridge road tills a long felt
UOOd for thia city. Here is a railroad
which has faith in Anderson and its
future-a faith SQ strong that lt ls
willing to put up a station for tho use
of its passengers which will compare
most favorably with any station In a
city much larger than Anderson. Tho
old station was built ahead of thc
town a few years ago, and Anderson
outgrew lt. Now with a confidence In
tho future growth of thc city, the rail
road lins built for tho next genera
tion and thc next. It will bc a long
lime before the new station will be
too small, and if lt ever gets "out of
date," wo shall bc surprised.
What we would like to see now is
:i station lor tho C. St W. C. in keep
ing with this, and we believe that we
shall soon seo it. In fnct it ls already
started, and it will not be long till
Anderson will havu two fine now pas
senger stutions. Ono will remain to
be built, and if our faith ls not mis
placed it will not bo long till the
Piedmont and Northern will establish
terminal facilities and a passenger
stat?o?v, equal to any in the city. An
derson ia now the center of a splendid
railroad development, and the remark
has been made dozens of tintes recent
ly: ''Tho Blue Ridge would not have
put all tho money she has in fine now
equipment am! in this handsome pas
senger station, if shu had not intend
ed to build on through to Knoxville,
or extend her lines." We trust this
will bc true. i
SOME NEW MONEY.
. Would r/ot the investment in labor
in Anderson County of three quarters
of a million of new and outside money
be worth a great deal to the county
th!* year? How many day's work for
idle roon und teams would this rep
resent? How many farmers would bc
able to help out their income by do
ing some work to earn a part ot this
money? Would lt not be worth while
to have this much new monoy in the
county this year which everyone con
cedes will be' a hard year? If this is
true, then think well boforo casting
your vote against thc proposed bond
Issue for Anderson County. The cjty
Ot Anderson will today vote for good
Aire?is and the people of the county
Mould have just as good roads as the
r?ipie ot the etty. Both amounts. If
: ??ted, will mean almost a million
Jill lars ot new money to bo spent In
jwndorson County to help out the cot
ton crops and the grain crops of the
county. Are you In favor u? this or
not? Your vote on the 30th inst., will
tell. Mesnwhile do your own thinking
and vote as n true voter should, from
reason nnd not from prejudice.

hope will be au annual event for this
city. With the opening of the lim
new theatre building here, there opem

tin- musically inclined people of thc
city will soon perfect un Organization

we sec no reason why lt should be bid

an annual event which will iurnisn

ence Recd, is tito attraction at the
Paramount theatre Tuesday. Tho
press notice says:
The popular American star, Flor
ence Reed, makes ber firm appearance
in motion pictures in the Famous
Players Film Co's vivid and realistic
film production of Henry Arthur
Jones' celebrated drama. "The Danc
ing Girl," the Paramount feature at
Paramount theatre Today. Miss Reed's
splendid emotional work in such great
current dramas as "The Typhoon"
and "Tho Yellow Ticket" stamp her
as well adapted to the role of thc
paradoxical and beautiful Drusilla,
, Quaker lind dancing girl, demure lit
tle village maiden, and notorious belle
of London Bohemia.
Living quietly in a little Quaker
settlement on the Isle ot Endellino,
with her sober father and timid little
sister. Faith, Drusilla takes service in
the household of one of the nobility,
where she comes under the notice of
the profligate Duke ot Guiseberry.
Finding that the girl ls graceful as
weil as beautiful, the Duko offers to
pay for her dancing lessons, and make
of her a professional dancer. After
a struggle between her love of life
and pleasure and her Qauker scruples,
brasilia succumbs to temptation, and
eventually becomes, without the
knowledge of her stern old father, a
notorious dancer and the favorite of
the Duke. Wishing' again to see her
home, ind the father she still loves,
Drusilla again assumes the guise of
a Quaker, and returns to the little
village, where she is received in lov
ing ignorance of what she has be
come. Here John Christison, one ot
the Quakers, falls ta love with her,
and heedless of his breaking heart
and of her sister's who loves hun.
Drusilla gakiy flirts with. John, and
'leads him to believe she ls not Ind ti
rent to him. The Duke visits the
island, and John overhears an inter
view between Drusilla and her pro
tector, which shows him her true char
acter. John confronts her with her
duplicity, burr though she is startled,
she throws herself on his mercy, and
he promises not to betray her to her
family. She returns to London and
takes up her old life, but at the,
height ot her glory comes a teriflc
blow, that drives the crushed little
dancer shivering before it, SB a bro
ken-winged butterfly flutters in the
havoc of a storm. How she seeks
death to forget her ruined life, and
Ands love and a new happiness in
stead, is vividly un folded in the real
