I'd rather be a booster than a knock
er any day,
I'd rather tinge with hope than doubt
* Ute words I have to say,
I'd rather miss my guess
On another man's success
Than to view his bitter struggle and
prophesy his fall.
I would rather Bay "he's coming'
Than "hes going" when I'm sum
Up tho labors of my brothers, 1
would rather boost 'them all.
1 would rather speak the kind thingB
than the mean things any day,
I'd rather swing a baton than a ham
mer, let me say.
I would rather* sing my rhyme
In a sort of two-step time
Than to let it drag its dirges in a
gloomy, heavy style. .
I would rather say "God clean
And ' with words of cheer impress
Than to preach about your follies all
I would rather be a booster than a
knocker any day,
I'd rather pi also than criticise in
what I have to nay.
I'd rather not be wiso,
At the cost of others' sighs,
I would rather see th-- good things
than the ovil thee men do;
. I would far be wrong
When 1 boost a man along
Than to be perfect in my Judgment,
but make everybody blue.

The Gaffney Ledger says that Old
Booze received another Jolt the other
day when Ute bill poster advertising
association of the United States and
Canada placed a ban on advertising
whiskey and other spirituous liquors.
The Ledger also says that the Gaffney
bili postera association haa always
declined to post whiskey advertising.
Newberry might well follow the ex
ample of the National Posters asso
ciation and tho Gaffney association.
For many months it haB been very
noticeable that the most conspicuous
poster advertising in this town has
been whiskey ads. We do not mean**
to offend by giving advice to the city
council; but wo believe lt haa como
to tho time when such advertising
upon the bill boards of the etty ought
to bo strictly forbidden.-Newerry

LET I'S BUL? ?001) HOADS ANYWAY
Doubtless the result of the election yesterday will occasion but little sur
prise, and certainly there ls no one who believed that the result waa going
to be any different. We regret that the voters could not see the wisdom of
the bond issue way of building roads, and hope that the great amount of in
terest started will finally work out a method by which some permanent roads
will be built. The people of the county are united in that they want good
roads, and their only difference ls as to method. C od roads must come, and
ire trust that there will bc no let-up till Anderson county has the best road
system in thc State.
The people cf the county are correct in that they want to see what kind of
road Is best suited for this Piedmont section. Had the bond issue carried The
Intelligencer would not have advocated a blind expenditure of this great fdnd
on any kind of road, but we would have urged, as The Greenville News ls do
ing, that the commission go slow, and experiment with several typea of road
construction to find out what would best suit the conditions and the climate
of this section. Now. however, that the Issue of bonds has been voted down,
we would urge our county supervisor and county commissioners to them
selves begin and build one or more miles of permanent road-bed to ascertain
the type best suited to this county, and the approximate cost per mlle. They
have tfci'j authority, aud it can be safely asserted that the interest aroused
over the subject in this county will not down till some permanent road work
Yes, Anderson county must have better roads than any other section of the
State. We can hsvc, and we are able to build any kind of road we want.
ONE OF THE STATE'S BIGGEST MEN
The Intelligencer is of the opinion that if there ls one man who can claim
to bc doing more for South Carolina than any man lc the State, but who is
too modest to make any such claim, that man ls Dr. W. W. Long, of Clem
son College, who is in charge of the farm demonstration work In this State.
While others are bickering over this or that method, Mr. Long is quietly
working out what Ute State needs. He has been emphasizing the necessity
tor securing proper methods of shipping, and preparing grains for shipment,
realising that the South must turn attention more than ever to raising grain
lt we are to continue to lead the country agriculturally. While he contends
thst this is the natural cotton producing section of the country, he feels that
we must grow more grain and hay and such, becoming exporters rather than
With this lu view he has enlisted the agency of Ute government and is now
engaged in making a tour of some of the grain growing counties with an' ex
pert, Dr. Duvel, to teach those unaccustomed to shipping grain, Just tho best
methods for this. These gentlemen will be lu Anderson Thursday, and will
discuss th'.o very important matter with those interested.
SOME IMPORTANT AND INTERESTING PEBSONS
The Intelligencer believes in pinning bouquets on those who live, rather
than to wait and place a wreath on the top of tbe mound which contains all
that ls left bf mortality after life. We believe, also in commending those
agencies which tend to promote better life and better living. Those persons
whose lives are given up to teaching and Instructing the young, and prepar
ing them for more usef;:'. and more industrious careers when they attain to
the estate of manhood sr ot womanhood, need and deserve all the praise they
ever get, and more.
Anderson county ld fortunate In ltaving some of those at work in a large
way la thia county, and their labors will live after they are gone. What wo
man In this county is doing more than Miss Maggie Carlington in v jr service
for the schools of the county? A suggestion here and there, p< . w ?% which
will in a quiet way revolutionise the methods of teaching in a a t like the
pebble d. opped into a pool will send a ripple to the shore, however far away.
Another worker of the same family, a sister. Miss Janie Garlington. only re
cently come to thia county, is laying the foundation for a most important
work. Her duties aa demonstrator In charge ot the girls canning club work
In the county, take her into many homes, and she is placing instruction and
emphasis upon the1 practical side ot making a home. Her girls are fond of
her, and that she ls busy will be known when lt ls known that 176 girls have
joined her clubs. Besides this ?he has organised a number of "Home-Keepers
Clubs," and here she ls striving to have Introduced labor saving, and time
saving methods ot keeping homes.
Others, mere men, who come into contact with the public, and who are do
ing a fine work for Anderson county, and whose duties are being performed
with intelligence and fidelity, are County Superintendent of Education, J. B.
Felton, and Farm Demonstrator Garrison. We must not forget to mention
that other worker with young men, who has been with the Y. M. C. A., Fred
M. Burnett. He is a wheel horse, and this team* ot men have a field before
'hera as yet undeveloped aa it should be In Anderson cor. n ty, tlx G 'crop to
be grown tn this field is manhood, the plants being boys and young mien. The
Boy's Corn Club for Felton and Garrison, and the Boy Scouts for Burnett
We want to see them with as large a following as Mia? Janie Carlington
has. Men, get busy and ?how the plucky canning club demonstrator that she
will have to hustle to keep ahead of you and your boy?.
With these great possibilities tn life and the future, so many men are
bending all their energies to make money, to make money, to make money,
getting a Potent repetition in this statement.- How much they could broaden
out it they would get out and mingle with their fellows a blt and break down
some of the prejudice existing between those living in different classes or
strata of society. Think thia over, men, and see what you-should do.
THE GREATEST RESULT OF THE WAR
The statement by David Lloyd-George, chancellor o? the exchequer, thal
"We are fighting Germany, Austria and drink, and so far as I can sec. UH
greatest of these three deadly Cssa is drink," is perhaps the stronger: state
ment yet mads against drink In. the realm ot temperance preachment. This
statement, be it remembered, was not made ny a minister of-tho Gospel, or a
temp?rance leader, whom, we would expect to make such a statment, but li
waa made by a cold-blooded business man, whose business ls to look after
the finances of a great nation at war. <,'
Continuing this financier said: "Tbave a growing conviction tfc?t nothing
but root and branch methods would be of the slightest avail In dealing with
thc evil. I believe that It ls the general feeling that if we are to settle Ger
man militarism wo Pt st of all must settle with drink." There is, therefore
strong possibility that out of this conviction, there will grow another prohi
bition nation. Russia set Uta pace and Uta people of all the world are aston
ished at the far -each,?g and beneficial results following this ?weeping order
banishing the Russian's beloved vodka. *
The United States la watching with greatest Interest the battle against In
toxicating beverages in the mother countries, and it seems tart one of the re
sults sure to follow is universal prohibition. And.1 If this result does follow
the war. terrible aa lt is, and destructive of lite and property, who will say
that lt were not better? May lt not be one of tho mysterious workings of
Providence to bring about a rasait which man is slow to undertake, or which
maa falls to accomplish?
Well, Soptus, say it and get lt out of your ayatexo. We viii stand a rea
sonable amona' of chaffing, and deserve lt, perhaps.
Thc Intelligencer expect.- some ot Its readers tb say now: "I told you BO,"
because the bond issue was defeated so overwhelmingly.
Newberry ia talking about organlsinj a chamber ot commerce, or at least
