The Shared Burden.'
Methought to (?hare my burden with
The weight of it had grown so hard
No.longer dared I hold it all my own,
Lest lt should fell me In my deep
But when I greeted him to whom I
In full assurance of a welcome fair,
My, heart stoo} still, for written on
Methought I saw another's soul's
My own forgotten left mo strangely
She must be comforted, tkl-i sorry
one, not I,
Who never dreamed he ever knew
She always hold our courage up so
And as ?bo tears and trouble left his
face, ' ? '
Hy sorrow I no longer cared to sharo
Fur suddenly 1 ceased to feel Its
And half my burdon scorned to leavo
And from the depths of the tired
. Has come this blessing to make us
That half the burden foll away
When wc had given others cheer.
BIGHT MEN IN RIGHT PLACES*
It ls worthy of note thc great re
spect all cadets of Clemson College
have for President Riggs and Colonel
Cummins, the commandant. These of
ficers ot thc college are In close
toufeh with every detail ot the life of
thc cadets, and are on the friendliest
terras with all of the "boys.'' Solici
tous for tho wclfsre ot the boya en
trusted, to their caro, these gentle
men seem to have a close and confi
dential-relationship with the Individ
ual cadet which to an outsider seems
almost Impossible. It ls worthy or
note that not a cadet can be found
who will Bpeak Jn the least disre
spectfully of cither pf thea? gentle
men. "Wo always know Ujat Coi.
' Cummins ls square, and that he does
what he believes to be right. .*He ls
always just the same, and you can
count on his doing Justice." Is the way
one of thc cadets spoke ot the com
mandant. "President Riggs is a fine
mun and the man for the place," la
another remark made by a cadet and
ho said lt voiced the sentiment ot' the
entire corps o? cadets. Certain lt ls,
that these two gontlerucn are "on to
their Jobs" In every sense of the tenn,
and with a faculty composed of more
mon like these it is ho wonder that
this institution hakes the rank lt does
among the colleges of the country.
GENTLEMEN IN DEPARTMENT.

of the Clemson cadets hers this woek

TO BK. EXPECTED.
lt is perfectly uuturui for our
Oconee County citizen to oppose Clem
son College's being moved from Uiclr
counties and annexed to Anderson
County, lt is also equally natura! for
this county to go aflcr thc college,
and thus settle for all time the mooted
question as to which county Clemson
College ls in unyway. People from
thc low country ure always puzzled to
know Juut in what comity the Stute
agricultural college ix located and we
thought lt would simplify matters to
say it is in Anderson County. People
all over the State always know where
Anderson County is, and the demand
will be so great to belong lo Ander
son County utter this encampment ls
over, that wc would not be at ull sur
prised that thc cadets themselves pe
tition for thc annexation, including
the cadets from Pickeiis and Oconee
Counties. We doubt not that before
long even the Walhalla correspondent
himself will "annex" himself to An
derson, and take up his residence in
the Electric City. Anderson County
ls known far and wide as being the
best agricultural county In the State,
and we believe that President Higgs
will admit that it haB the odds on
Orangeburg County even, so there ls
ample reason that the State's agricul
tural college should he located in thc
State's best .agricultural county. Why
ono of tho best farmers In tho county
recently Raid that if lt were not for
the good farmers in Anderson County,
he feared that Clemson College would
bc a failure, for they taught the'col
lege more about farming thnn the col
lege taught them. Who ever heard of
such remark being made by an Oconee
Of course Oconeo County would
still have thc distinction of being thc
county In which Clemson College was
originally located, and that is honor'
enough. Let your neighbors share
some of this glory. Friend Moss, and
then when you come to Anderson to
live you can still have Clemson Col
lege In "your county." But thia is n
matter to he settled by thc citizens of
the portion Interested, and can only
be agitated by our Walhalla corres
pondent and by The Intelligencer.
This newspaper does not * ant Oconee
and Pickens Counties in their entirety,
though since the ?gallon a month"
law went Into effect, many o? our cit
izens might like to bc on the good side
of portions of these counties where
the bewitching moon shines and the
cooling breezes blow.

Beautiful Woodland Drama at
the Paramount Theatre
In the beautiful woodland drama of
'.Wildflower," by Mary Germaine, Mar
guerite Clark portrays tbe character
of the dainty and bewitching little
forest flower, whose real name ls Let
Letty Roberts, a pretty and un
sophisticated child of nature, dreams
and frolics her time- away on a little
farm on the edge of the woods, far
from the city. One day a stranger
comes, Arnold Boyd, a wealthy man
who has chosen the seclusion of the
forest SB a rest from wearisome so
ciety duties. He meets Letty, and ls
delighted with ker daintiness and
fragile bueaty, and at once makes
friends with the shy little creature of
the woods. He thinks of her only as
aa interesting child, -however, and
when visited by his scapegrace broth
er, Gerald, who is by his o- n confes
sion "a constant worship! ei at the
shrine of woman," Arnold vic vs with
alarm ead discomfort Geraiu's flirta
tious attitude toward little Letty. Ger
ald halls Arnold's nickname of "Wild
flower" as appropriate to Letty, and
begins an ardent courtship of thc
child-woman, whose innocence and ig
norance la ed her to mistake tho dross
for gold. After a tempestuous woo
ing. Letty is .swept off her feet by the
impetuous Gerald, and elopes with
him. Arnold learns of the elopement,
and immediately pursues the pair,
reaching them just after the wedding
ceremony has been concluded. After
a struggle with his brother, Arnold
knoaks Gerald down, and by means of
.train and auto spirits Letty away from
her newmade husband, despite her
desperate-efforts to escape, all ot
which he thwarts. Arnold takes Let
ty to the old Fifth avenue mansion
of the Boyds in New York, and intro
duces her there to the members of the
household as his wife, telling Letty
this course is necessary to protect her
reputation, but not fully explaining
wby. Bren Letty's: parents, who know
of the elopement, do not know which
of the Boyds she has married.
Overborne by Arnold's arguments
and masterful manner, Letty reluc
tantly consents to - remain in the
Boyd, home for a time, as Arnold's
"wife in name' only," till such time
as Gerald should como to claim her,
which shh is sure will be soon. The
situations which follow swiftly illus
trate in turn Letty's ignorance of the
world, her natural innocence, her un
familiarity w Uh tho customs and man
ners of society, her hot temper, and
finally, her generosity tnd sympathy.
The strange secret ?hst Arnold is
guarding from her is ? t last revealed,
and there is a -nighty t...adjustment of
relations. The elder brother,
who had at first otdy sought to save &
woman's reputation, and guard his j
own family honer, now comes to '
Ream only of love. There is a tremen
UB renunciation on Letty's part,-that
at fir-it almost crushes the .delicate
girl, but becomes leas terrible as she
r?alises the noble nature of the man
who has guarded hei. At the crisis
of the drama har own stren^.h and
character is the determining force;
the wild flower of the woods becomes
