Anderson voted pretty strongly
against bonds for the building ot
roads. Well, wo know of no better
Investment' the county could have
made than money pat lb permanent

people that the roads will bo built af

DIL JNO. F. VINES, PASTOR,
One may not always agree with a
Strong mau, but even if the convic
tions expressed hy a man who is
strong and hus real convictions are
i.jt in keeping with what one thinks,
one cannot hut feel Upen respect for
him. und the manliness he exempli
fies when he has the temerity to ex
press convicltcbs counter to those
generally held by the people of the
community. The world needs strong
men to do Its thinking und to lead
those who are and always will bc
followers. Not every man! with strong
convictions and broad Ulcus occupies
a position which enables him to bb
heard, or to impress uopn his com
munity the Unportanco of his progres
sive principles. In Anderson there is
a strong man who has strong con
victions and who has thc temerity to
express them. Ile lias made many
friends by so doing, and a few en
emies, but the enemies a man makes
many times is an indication of the
work he is accomplishing.
Dr. Jno. P. Vines is pastor -of the
largest church In Anderson, which is
tho same as saying it is the largest
In tho State, having the largest mem
bership of any one church In. South
Carolina. He is a strong preacher,
and '. a good pastor, beloved by his
con|. .gation. Coming to Anderson
almost a decado ago from the State
of Tendance, a graduate bf Carson
Newman Coilego, anti of the Baptist
Theological Seminary', and a hard
worker, he has made an Impress upon
this community. AS president ot An
derson College, he demonstrated his
ability to organize, and since that
time ho has been instrumental in
-furthering the cause of education in
every way possible. A strong think
er and a fighter, Dr. Vines, withal has
the tenderness of a woman, and the
large audiences which hear his ser
mons Sunday after Sunday, attest to
the force ot his preaching.
ANDERSON AND NEW SCHOOL
Supt. J. E. Swearingen has pre
pared an article for The Intelligencer
on tho new compulsory attendance
law in this State, and makes some
comments upon conditions in Ander
son County. Some of the figures he
uses will be especially interesting.
All but eleven school districts have
voted a special levy tax. Eight of the
high schools have State aid; thirty
two rural graded schools' receive
State, ah and there arc sixteen dis
tricts receiving term extension aid.
Supt. Swearingen states that there
are perhaps ninety per cent of the
children of school age in attendance
upon the schools of tito county, and
he argues that the remaining ten
per cent should be put into the
schools. He says: "Careless and dis
interested parents should no langer
be permitted to keep their boys and
girls out of school, and thus den.- to
them advantages of a public school
Supt. Swearingen then goes on to
show how the new compulsory school
attendance law may bo Introduced In
to this county. He nays that ail peti
tions should bc circulated during thc
month of April. In order that the
election required may be held in June
at the specified time, i The term of
compulsory attendance is fixed by law
at four* months, which term is not at
all burdensome." In towna the term
is the period of compulsion.
Mr. Swearingen hast the following
to say: "For years Anderson County
has ranked among the.foremost lead
ers of progressive education In South
Carolina. I earnestly hope that this
record may be maintained In Hie mat
ter of compulsory attendance."
ADVANTAGE, OF GARDEN.
In this, morning's Intelligencer
there appears one of a series or ar
ticles prepared by the department ol
agriculture on the advantages of a
vegetable garden. These article!, art
prepared by exports and sre full ol
good suggestions as to how' to make
the garden a profitable adjunct ol
every home. In addition to this de
tailed Information will be given as to
how to plant and cultivate all the
vegetables. Wo trust that our read
ers will follow this series of articles,
and that every home In Anderson
County at least may haven line vege
table garden. Much ' money can bc
saved, and much more wholesome and
healthful vegetables can be raised
than lt bought from the market. Then
the exercise will be most beneficial

Redpath Chautauqua People Say
Plan Cannot Now
A communication has been receiv
ed at the chamber of commerce from
the Redpath Chautauqua Bureau in
reply to n letter which the chamber
of commerco address to the bureau
some days ago asking if it would bo
possible for Shakespearo's "Merchant
of Venice" to bo produced during
ehautauqna week here instead of
"The Servant In th: House." as there
had boen a number of requests made
for the change.
The communication from the chau
tauqua bureau states that it will bc
impossible to change the play, and
tells why in the following words:
"Your letter of the 28th inst., to
hand. We are extremely sorry if
'The Servant in the House," does
not meet the wishes of a number of
your people. We selected this play
after most careful consideration and
the desire for "Tho Servant in the
House" was so universal that we
have not provided a substitute.
"Surely, thero must be some mis
apprehension in regard to "The Ser
' vant in the House." The play is, in
reality, a great human document,
dealing with those things which touch
the common heart of mankind. It ls
^absolutely clean and pure and no per
son nttendlng such a play can fail to
foel the influence of its high moral
purpose. "Tho Servant in the House"
has the endorsement of the Drama
League of America, an organization
made? up principally of women whose
purpose is the elevation of the drama.
When the play was in Chicago it
hod the unqualified endorsements of
the ministers and churches and was
the theme of many sermons.
"When I sent-out the talent rating
blanks to twenty different individuals
in one hundred and twenty towns on
tho chautauqua circuit, we usked in
tho lotter accompaning the blanks
this question: "Would you consider
'The Servant In the House' a good
play , for next your's chautauqua ?"
Over ninety-eight per cent ot the
answers were favorable.
"Tho bureau has gone to a great
expense bo perfect this production,
buying the rights to produce. "The
Servant in the House" la the lyceum
aud the chautauqua. Mr. Chas. Rann
Kennedy, tho author ot the play, se
lectee' the leading actors and came
from Now York to Chicago to put
the'finishing touches on thc play.
' Accept when this drama was first
produced in New York with the ori
ginal cast, I do not believe "The Ser
vant In the House" has ever been pro
duced under such favorable circum
stances. I sincerely trust that it will
bo acceptable to your audiences, for
wo have mcde every effort tn build
ing our program to make lt. "De
Luxe" from start to finish."

Remarks Made By Presidei
Cadets in Chapel. Mon
The board of trustees, the faculty,
the president and all the friends at
Clemson may well be proud- of thc
fine impression made upon the hn
pitablc city of Anderson by your de
portment during the encampment of
last week. Wherever 1 wen:, I heard
your praises. The mayor of the titty,
the secretary of the chamber of com
merce, business men, newspaper edi
tors', and even the chief of police,
vied with each other in compliment
ing your bearing and ceportment.
Epeclally emphatic and particularly
gratifying was thc testimony from
the ladles of Anderson. -
I cannot but feel that tho peo
ple of Anderson wore ns proud of
you ut if Clemson Co'lego were local
ed tn Anderson county, and certainly
they r cerned delighted to havo you
as illili- truests.
I predicted that no where in th?
State would wc find a warmer wel
come than in- Anderson, and I un:
sure you are ready now to confirm
thia statement. Never have I seen
warmer hearted hospitality than was
shown you by every one In tho city,
and to the ladles in particular should
we bc grateful for many courtesies.
Their spirit was shown in an incident
related to rae by Chaplain Mills, to
the effect that a cadet walking to
wards thc camp was overtaken by
a lady in an automobile. Although
a stranger to- him. the lady gave him
a seat in the automobile, and Insisted
on his going to dinner with her,
which Invitation he hod the good
sense to accept. .
To the newspapers of Anderson W .
are indebted for much favorable pub
licity, not only 1n the local columns,
but . through their disc '.ches to thu
dally papers of tho State.
To the chamber of commerce, and
particularly to its indefatigable sec
retary, do we owe a special debt* be
c?>'se through their efforts was lt
u.ado possible to have the enc?nuE^
ment without necessary coat to tho
college cr to the cadets.
And BO the encampment with' Ita
duties, its pleasures and Its danjtyra.
la a thing of the pa?*, W* have ,*>n,?ii
to be thankful for-for the sutn>
weather, for good health, for th? tine
impression made by the corp* ur?"MI
the people of Anderson-an impres
sion not marred by a single disagree
able incident-for the gener?os hts*
pltality onjoyed. for the valuable
military instruction received, and for
a safe return. Thia week has been ?a
"dary anxious one (or me.
Your health and pleasure have been
rory much on my heart, but "All's
well that ends well." Por vour safe
and healthful return I ana. duly
thankful, and for your flod con luci
and tho honor you have brought upon
the nomo of Clemson Colkvre. I nni
profoundly grateful. The entire en
campment is sn honorable page In
the history of .the college, and i trust

questing au election cannot bo delay

the trustees of districts containing
fifteen lin ml red Inhabitants phoubi
be sent in lo the county board, of ed
ucation before June Int in order that
due notice of the proposed elc-llon
may be given to the /olera.
Teachers and trustee in perhaps
a Bcore of districts in Andersen coun
ty have enrolled practically every
child in their territory. Some of these
teacher? and trustees assert that
compulsory attendance is not needed
lc their schools beeanH? it will net
bring in an udditional pupil.
Every such district is earnestly
urged to assist the cause of public
education by putting the compulsory
attendance law in operation at once.
Their cooperation will prove the
practicability of the statute.
Tho compulsory term for the
country schools will bo four months,
tho compulsory term for- all town
schools will last through tho entire
The local school improvement as
sociations ' in the various district cai;
render valuable service by taking up
this ciuestion. The women of each
association are vitally interested in
the education of their children. If
the school improvement workers
would make a concerted effort in
this connection during the next two
nionth:i, they would render an in
valuable service to the public schools.
Some districts may vote agaiust
compulsory' atienda -e ju n as a few
backward districts" nave consistently
refused to vote a local school tax.
Such district? are in the greatest
need of better school3. They are al
so In the greatest need of more mon
ey. Our failure to secure a local tax
In such neighborhoods i? deeply re
gretted, but our educational teasers
have not given up the fight because
of this failure. A similar course with
respect to compulsory attendance
will net be altogether successful in
these backward districts, but it
should certainly succeed In thc more j
progressle communities where local |
.utercst in education has already
compelled the voting of a local school
For years Anderson county hail
ranked among the foremost leaders
of progressive education in South
Ca; olina. I earnestly hope that this
record may be maintained hythe mat
