A Nasse fe (kc Sand.
Alone I walked tho ocean strand;
A pearly shell waa in my hand;
I stopped and wrote upon the sand
My name-thc year-tho day.
As onward from tho spot I passed,
Ono lingering rolling high
One lingering look behind I cast;
A wave came rolling high and fast,
And wujhcd my linos away.
And so, methought, 't will shortly be
With every mark on earth from mo;
A wayo of dark oblivion's sea
Will swoop across the placo

Of time, and been, to be no more,
Of mo-my day-the name I bore.
To leave nor track nor trace.
And yet, with Him who counts the
And holds the waters In His hands,
I know a lasting record stands
Inscribed against my name.
Of all this mortal part has vrought.
Ot all this thinking soul has thought.
And from those fleeting moments
For glory or tor shame.

Tho city of Anderson recently voted
to Its full limit for paving bonds, and
the mernoo rs. of Ute y'avhijc commis
- sion have boen, going to nearby cities
lo inspect the paving there. Ander

''Thc Day," as tho Gorman* toasted
and drank, has come, or us they would
have said "Der Tug." Hy this wc
mean the day when the Clemson
cadets aro due to leave the city.
Coming a few days ago almost entire
strangers they leave with hundreds
of acquaintances and friends. Deport
ing themselves during their stay as
young gentlemen should, they have
created a feeling of respect and ad
miration for tho college which could
nut have been brought about by years
of occasional visits by a few of thc
cadets. Somehow we all feel that
Clemson College is "our" college In a
new meaning, and that we have the
greatest right to call lt so. Noting
the great and personal care Colonel
Cummins takes of each and all thc
cadets, parents who have been herc
during this encampment will feel
more at ease and rest assured that
everything possible . J being done for
(heir boy at this college.
Ono cannot but contemplate the
potential energy of this great body of
young men, and w'ondcr what the re
sult of their trained and progressive
minds would bc on South Carolina,
if they would all remain in their
native State and return service for
their training by the State. The
graduating class this year is com
posed of more than 100 young men.
If all these were to remain and give
their thought and energy to South
Carolina, the results would be felt
powerfully. Farms would begin to
grow better rapidly, schools would be
better taught in many cases, business
would tako on new life, and other pro
fessions and callings would receive
new blood and new impotus. Yes,
South Carolina needs you, young men,
with your trained minds. While, per
haps, j you may not be able to com
mand tho large salaries you feel you
need so quickly In this Stato as in
more populous and richer sections,
you would make it easier for your son
and your son's son to secure them at
home. While your father would bc
glad to know ' that you were doing
well in New York or In Panama, he
would enjoy you more if you were
Just "over the hill," or "across the
meadow" helping him with his im
mediate problems; and as for your
mothor-you know where she wants
you. The Intelligencer would have the
yountr ' men of the graduating class
think of these Ulinga when deciding
wt ero Iney will locate and what they
will do. They are weighty and worth
while mattera to think pt and to de
cide before choosing life's work.
But, we are delighted to know you
boys and to have had you with us.
Cdtne back every year, and when the
college life ls over and you want a
wife and a homo, remember "You Can
Do Better in Anderson."
APPRECIATES POST SCRIPT.
The editor of l^ie intelligencer ap
preciates very much the post script
ot Mr. Casey as appears in his com
munication in the Good Roads De
partment; of thia newspaper this
morning. It there is anything the
editor of this newspaper wishes at all
times to be it ls to be absolutely fair
In all matters. Wo would rather
give an advantago than to tako one,
and whenever we have taken a posi
tion our readers feel is not compatible
with their views, the columna ot The
Intelligencer shall be open to thom
for making reply or for argumenta

SEPTLS CORRESPONDENT AGAIN.
What pussies us in tho articles
from our Sepvus correspondent is why
be continues to write on tho question
ot the bond issue If, as he says,' he ls
so sure it will be so overwhelmingly
defeated on the 30th Inst. It must be
that somewhere he has a sneaking
notion that lt if not as unanimous as
he tries to think lt is, and Oust attar
all, there Is a chance for the bond la
ppa to carry. But, Septos ls a good
writer, and we 'are sure our readers
enjoy reading1 his effusions, and we
are glad he writes so often. We have
wondered, sud wo.have heard others
.peak ot the' same thing, what this
writer could accomplish by his facile
pen. lt he were not eternally "agin"

if he had come out and havo aided

might we hs ve accomplished I
The Intelligencer has done one
thing in thia good roads bond Issue
controversy, and that is to n_uke it
piala that'there are great advantages
in having good highways. When we
first started there' were thoa? who
r.cj?d forget to say when they wroti
on the question that they were in
favor of good roads, but now you
could not get a writer to say that the
roads of bis fMtier is good enough for
Iilni. To be against good roads is not
popular and it shows antiquity of
thought, so the matter must be fought
out now on tho methods to be used in
acrurlng them. One says the bond is
sue Is thc only way; another says it
ran he done by direct taxation. One
says it must be done by the SUto lu
a State-wide movement, another that
lt must bc by school districts or by
townships. We fear that many of
theae are just oppositions for the pur
popr of obscuring the real reason for
voting against tho effort we are mak
ing to secure 250 miles of real roads
in Anderson County. We fear that
prejudice and persona? preference
play a large part in this matter, and
will cast many votes against the bond
Issue, by men who would not for the
world have it known what was tho
real reason they arc opposing the
Our correspondent is correct to use
his pen and ballot to "fight any man
or Ret of men who try to make our
task harder." He should do this.
Whut we who favor the bond issue
wish to do is to mako their task ligh
ter, and bring to them some of thc
comforts and conveniences of mod
ern life as can be brought about by
good roads. The following is taken
from the report of the Joint Commit
tee on Federal Aid in the Construc
tion of Post Roads which has Just
been made to congress. We commend
thia tc our correspondent and to
others who think as he does:
"Hut lt ia not from the business
viewpoint alone that the good roads
problem should be considered.
Though the attainment of good roads
ls desirable for tho improvement of
conditions for hauling freight, we be
lieve far greater and ultimately much
more important benefits will be rea
lized in other respects.
"Bad roads make rural life un
pleasant, limit opportunities for so
cial Intercourse, and interfore with
maintenance of good rural schools.
The establishment of good roads will
do mor? than any other one thing to
aid the ''back-to-the-farm" movement.
"With city population increasing
three times as fast as rural popula
tion, and production of foodstuffs not
near keeping pace with increase in
population, there ls surely need to
make farm life more pleasant and
farm operation more profitable. The
problem is one of national impor
tance, for congestion ot population in
cities ls a national evil. Upon coun
try life we depend chiefly for the
strength and vigor of body, mind, and
moral character that make a nation
"In the effort to halt the drift of
men and women toward the city, no
public undertaking will aid more than
Improvement of highways, for good
roads destroy the isolation of country
life. Improve market opportunities,
and decrease the coBt of hauling farm
products to town."
