We Should Smile.
The thing that goes the farthest to
ward making life worth while
That costs the least and does the
most, is Jue! a pleasant smile
The smile that bubbles from tbe heart
that loves its fellow men
Will drive away the cloud of gloom
and coax the sun again.
It's full4of vgprth and goodness, too.
with manly kindness blent;
It's worth a million dollars and it
doesn't cost a cent.
There la no room for sadness when
t we seo a cherry smile,
It always has the same good look
lt's never out. of style;
It' nerves us on to try again when
failure makes us blue
Such dimples- of encouragement are
good for me and you.
So smile away; folks understand
what by a smile is meant
It's worth a million dollars and lt
doesn't cost a, cent.

The road bond Issue, so far as
Col ambla and rural Richland are
concerned, ,1s pretty much a parallel
O M, Y TWO MORE PAYS.
Only two inor??^ day* remain after
tili? IK read, before tbc fate of the
road bond issue will be lu the banda
of the voters.. W> are told thut lt
Will be killed! and'rtrfybe'it will. The
people have tbe rlf-ht to kill it or to
make it ulive. Il would he a miracle
if it were to carry, with the Indiffer
ent altitude of its friends, und the
uciivlly of Hs enemies. Nothing bus
been done to create or mould senti
ment favorable to the bond issue by
its friends and little surprise should
be felt, therefore, if it is defeated by
a big majority. The Intelligencer
would like to see lt carry, and we be
lieve it will be a Iii? mistake to kill
it. and that to do so will be to set
buck the good roads work in the
county at least a decade.
.'"ut we are not so sure that the
bond Issue ia going to lie killed. We
have heard of many sections where
the good roads sentiment is strong,
and where there ure more persons
favoring than are opposed to the
measure. Likewise we have benni of
sections where the .sentiment ls as
strong against lt. Those who are to
vote for the measure are not doing as
much talking ns are those who will
oppose lt. and it ls thus hard to find
out the-real sentiment of the people.
Indifference will be the greatest
drawback", and many persons who are
interested in good roads will stay
away from the polls and will not
vote. The Intelligencer would urge
all voters to turn out and < it a
vote, either for or against the pro
posed bond iBsue. Otherwise "you
will not count in shaping the policy
of the county.
South Carolina is watching the re
sult of the election Tuesday, and it
will speak volumes when the news Is
flashed over the State that Anderson
County has carried or killed the bond
MUN. LEK'S AHUrMENT.
We wish the men of the county who
have the. privilege of voting next
Tuesday ns to whether or not the
cout.'.y shall have good roads, made
by wholesale i v ni eu us of a bond Is
sue, could get the viewpoint of Mrs.
Rebecca R. Leo, when she pleads for
tho bond Issue ns a woman, and as a
woman suggests a means for paying
for the bond issue. She Bhows how
vory easy it would bc to pay the nec
essary extra tax by allotting that
privilege to thc''old Heh bn the place.
An egg a day for a year would be 30
dosen, which at 20 cents a dozen
would pay the extra tax for a farmer
who returns for taxation property to
tho value of $2,000.. And this is a
high valuation for the property own
ers of thc county.
Another good point'by Mrs. Lee, is
that when the renter, tiring ot for
ever paying rent and never owning
MB home, buys some land on a credit,
and while enjoying it pays for it, even
though it takes a series of years. This
Is Just what the man who wants good
roads now, w?H be doing. He will be
enjoying them while paying for them.
Thia ls good business too, for there
aro many farmers who own their
own homes, who, if they had had to
walt till they got together all tho
money for buying their land and
building their homes, would never
have known the pleasure of owning a
home of their own. Many a county
afraid to vote the necessary money to
build a good road, will never have tho
pleasure of owning a'good road To'en
joy driving or hauling over.
This, la one time we. wish we had
woman's suffrage, for Mrs;T<ce says
the women are tho greatest suffer
ers from poor roads. They not only
are tho physic?! sufferers but they
are also mental sufferers by being
shut up nnd .having thus to lead lone
ly and unsocial lives. If the women
could vote, wo feel sure they would
put the old dominick hens in Ander
son County to Work paying the taxes
on the bond issue, and they would
have good roads tq haul the eggs to
town to sell.

COLLIER? AND KANSAS. -
Kansas . IH held up as a model for
prohlbithm, and Just now mindi
thought is being given to the results
as announced from this Stat?'. Col
liers fiuotes from a writer who is
giving Iiis experience as a travelling
man in the State of Kansas. It is
woriii thinking about, and will tend
to show the value of State-wide pro
hibition, und letter of nation-wide
prohibition. This is surely coming
und soon, or the sign? of the times
are wrong and meaningless.
The quotation ls:
There isn't much poverty In Kan
sas, and the, kfnd ot* misery that
the liquor States abound In is un
known from Newton to Hutchinson,
dlucusstng lt. "Since Kunsas went
dry," one said, "I make thes% little
towns and sell a lot of stuff. Couldn't
touch 'em before. And If towns
that size were In a wet State. I'd lose
my job for stopping off at 'em."
"Same willi me," the other sold, who
"represented" an adding-machlnc
house. "These dry State beef mighty
little when business is bad in other
parts of the country. I'll bet New
York'll go dry before long."
And Collier's comments:
All the wails of the booze angels
who howl about blind pig?, wood al
cohol, and allied topics can not alter
the main fucts. The saloon does not
get the money under prohibition. In
time the liquor habit ls broken, and
as tiiat happens booze ceases to be
an issue and people turn to better
ways o? living.
MKS. STONEWALL JACKSON'S
That the widow of Stonewall Jack- \
son has gone to join her husband
"across the river in the shade of the
trees" seems not so Impressive,
though death is always impressive to
ns who still live, as that here lu 1915
there still lived the woman whose '
young life was wedded to that of the 1
great ? ?nfederate commander. Yt/
a few dayc and she would have seen
i he fifty-second anniversary of that
day in May when the real victor of
Chancellorsville submitted patiently
to the soldier's fate and died a victim- ?
bf bullets-not fired by an enemy.
Thomas Jonathan Jackson married
Mary Morrison in July. 1857. For
three und a half years they were per
mitted the normal quiet domestic life,
while he was occupied af a teacher
at the Virginia Military institute. On
April 21, 1861, however. Jackson was
ordered to report at Richmond with
his corps ot cadets and soon he was
a division commander, causing con
sternation to the Invaders of Virginia
whenever ne moved with Iiis "foot
cavalry." , JHIs extraordinary career
was destined to last only two years,
and on May 10, 1863. one week after
being mortally wounded by tho fire
of his own pickets, be passed ff-u
amid the full tide of war. Thus nt
thirty-two Mary Morrison Jackson,
after leas than six years companion -
'ship with him us his loyal and well
[ beloved wife, found herself widowed
In the coBtlioat single sacrifice of life
suffered by the Confederacy.
Tbat month of May, 1863, seems
far away. In a distant past ot terrible
but fading memories. Yet the wife of
St on J wall Jackson was still with
her people till yesterday. Almost lt
seems startling. Death that demand
ed him untimely seemed reluctant t??
summon her till tho uttermost span
permitted to mortality had been
granted her. And now at last the
years that" -parted th fin are ended.
May the great soldier and she whom
he loved join hands once more In tho
country where there .ia no war.
