Just at this time lt seems a propit
ious season for renewing the effort
to secure that portion of our slater
counties embraced In Clemson Col
lege, to be annexed to Anderson
County. Not that'we wish our sister
?ounth?s of Oronee sud Plckens any
harm, but wo would like mighty well
to bo able to any that Clemson Col
lege IB In Anderson County. We be:
ilove that ."Barkis ls wUlfn,' "' and we
would suggest that some agency take
this matter Up and proceed to work
Mjtl tb* proposition-as there ia no
other agency available we would refer
this matter lo Secretary Whaley for
early attention. Let ns have Clemson

CLEMSON CADETS WELCOME.
W< li ' I ie cadets, io Anderson.
Tin- Intelligencer b; delighted that
(he corps of cadets hun arrived, and
trusts they will lind Un ir stay In "The
Electric c ity" pleasant and profitable.
They will lind the latch Hiring oil the
outside in Anderson, and what they
want they will have. The presente of
these boya, gathered from every BOC
(ion of Hie State and from other
State?, will add greatly to the gaycty
? of the week, and BO mm h youth and
lifo will add much zest to tho Ander
son spirit. The people of Anderson
will bo young this week with tho
cadets. They will for tho time for
net that there ls a horrible war in
Kui ope. and feel secure with the pros
eare of the "boys in groy.'* like in
color to tho old "Boya in Groy" KO
famous in song and story.
Anderson has had other encamp*
mellis and she knows how to Rive the
boys a goad time. Tho Citadel cadets
encamped hero for two weeks In tho
early summer of 1897 and many of
them remember and speak with pleas
ure of tho >-ootl times they had on this
occasion.' This encampment was hold
at tho ?Ito of thc old Patrick Military
Institute on" South Main dr jet, and
one of tho features of this occasion
was tho March to Clemson College.
Every Citadel cadet on this encamp
ment remembers with delight the hos
pitality nf the people here at that
time. Since then other encampments
have been held, and wc would Uko to
have this coming of tho Clemson
cadets an annual affair.
The coming of the Clemson cadets
Is a most important matter to the city
of Anderson, and it may mean many
aggressive citizens for the city any
county If a favorable impression bo
formed of the city and county. A
young man seeing thc advantages
which this section offers over any
other part of South Carolina may
well decide to cast his lot with the
people o? the Electric City. As fu
ture business men and professional
men, wo would urge these young men
to investigate conditions here with a
view to making this their future home.
And for the very same reason wo
would impress upon every citizen of
Anderson the Importance of seeing to
it that there is no cause for complaint
on the part of a single cadet upon
his return to lils college. Let the '.et
ters from. Anderson spread afar the
hospitality of her good people, and bc
of sueii good cheer as to make the
cadets want to come back.
Welcome, Clemson Cadets to Ander
AOAI.V, THE THE ii TON IDEA.
It is unfortunate that there should
ever bo any difleronccK of opinion be
tween the city of Anderson and thc
county ot Anderson. We have puzzled
over the jealousies and feeling exist
ing between the people living Inside
the Incorporate lk.iits of the city and
tho rural inhabitants of tho county,
gnd wc confess frankly that wc see
no good reason for lt. Tho county
has made tho city of course, and every
other citixen has hay seed still in hit.
hair. Tho Intelligencer would bc de
lighted to have this feeling eliminated
id wo would Uko to do all wo can to
drive tho imaginary feeling away.
To this end there has been organiz
ed a kind of business organization
called tho Trenton Idea which wo
would like to sec worked tn. this coun
ty. It simply means that any man
may become a member of tho com
mercial or business organization at
tho county scat. . It refuses to recog
nize any imaginary boundary lino be
tween thc city and tho country; and
8aysa It makes no difference whether
or not a man waiko a block for his
maii or rides fivo m i i ea io Bei. ii. lu
places where this Trenton Idea has
been tried out it has worked wonders
In bringing the people together, and
showing the man in the city that thc
man in the country has not claws,
and vice versa. The motto of this or
ganization ls a might good one. It ls:
"Get- acuuainod with yohr neighbor
- you might like him." Why cannot
Anderson County be cemented
through such an organisation? Scat
