LET NEWSPAPERS BOAST.
Tho Intelligencer believes that a
newspaper making its living In a
community and being supported bj
the people und thc businesses Of a
community, should at all times and
under all circumstances be a booster
for the upbuilding of the community.
To do this a newspaper must put for
ward the best side of all enterprises,
especially those industrial and finan
cial, on which the life of the com
munity depends for growth and de
velopment. Advertising the shortcom
ings or failures of business concerns,
mid making general assertions that to
invest In them means sure loss, and
ls so common as to become a "habit"
in any community will not do the
.paper any good, nor will ic redound
to the credit of the community. The
newspapers ot Anderson should at all
times be boosters and bide their ham
ALCOHOLISM AND LIVE
In this day when the study of the
effects of alcohol on the physical and
mental stamina of man is being pur
sued with t?o .much interest and so ac
curately, the opinion ot life insurance
companies is especially valuable, and
are worth while looking into. The
old Une life Insurance companies
Iisve demonstrated with accuracy the
effects drinking even ? moderate
amount bf*Intoxicating liquor has
upon the life of a man, and today a
man who wishes to secure life insur
ance tn many ot the most reliable
life insurance companies must be a
very moderato drinker, or* a total ab
stainer. There ls no guess work on'
the part of these companies as to the
results sure to follow drink, and they
speak willi authority on. the subject
In a re?oit chart prepared by one ot
these com?anles, and the attending
comment it is shown that the actual
per cent of mortality, taking 100 as
normal, ls increased to as much as
208 por cent. The figures shown are
startling and we give herewith' the,
statement fololwlng the explanation
of this table:
The deaths from cirrhosis of the
Uiver amongst those who do.not attend
bar was foo** times the normal, aa
against six times the normal amongst
those who do attend. In both classes
tho deaths from diabetes were three
times the standard; from cerebral
hemorrhage and apoplexy nearly
twice the standard; organic diseases
ot The heart nearly twice the stand
' ard : bright's disease ' nearly three
timos the Standard; pneumonia nearly
twice the standard. Tu? re has there
ore been a very . high, percentage of
degenerativa diseases amongst pro
prietors, superintendents and man
agers, of hotels where there ls a bar.
The tendency of all these companies
is t" refuse to insure the man who
drinks at all, ec it viii not be sur
prising If all standard and old line
companies should soon announce that
ac y person Who wishes to carry life
'insurance with them must be total
abstainers. What a strong argument
his would make for entire temp?r
ance! But, what more ls needed for
a rational m&n than to note the re
sults ci this Impartial and busntsss
llke investigation. If this does not
appeal to one's reason, what will?
Let 'he reader? ot .The Intelligencer
ponder these things, ead resolve that
there shall be no reason for taming
down their applications because ol
the: use of Intoxicants..
Ono strong Rte insurance company
in annotihcmg Its standard* confer
lg drinkers of whiskey ad spirituous
liquors, hss the following to say:
"Mortality statistics show that the
experience of the companies in the
case of applicants accepted for in
surance who had drunk to excess in
tile past, even ff reformation had
lasted for us long us ten years, has
been decidedly unfavorable, and that
the experience was also unfavorable
in the case of men who were steady
free users of alcohol, even If they had
not drunk to excess. Hearing in mind
the fact that the companies have al
way.?, been careful in accepting such
casts, it is evident that even greater
care must be exercised in the future."
Even though there shall not be total
prohibition for years to come, In the
fuco of such investigations as above
it will not bo long till almost total
temperance win prevail. It should
prevail and if the passage of prohibi
tion laws will aid in dethroning King
Alcohol, there should be no hesitancy
In passing them. The story of Jack
London is one of great interest, and
when he nays that there is not much
chance to escape under the present
laws in many places, ho does not
greatly exaggerate. Young men
should have all the safeguards thrown
around them in growing to manhood,
and if, as has been demonstrated, the
passage of prohibition laws ls a help,
even though they do not entirely
eradicate the evil, they should be
given this protection.
THE SOUTH'S RESOURCES!
One of the great evangels for thc
growth and upbuilding of the South
is the Manufacturers Record. This
great newspaper always finds a silver
lining to the cloud ii there ls one to
bo found. In tho current issue there
ls a strong editorial contrasting the
present conditions with those existing
fifty years ago in the South. The
spirit of, tho South was then undaunt
ed, and the people of this section have
bullded greater and better Hhan they
"Under all the burdens and losses,
and in spite of the drawbacks, the
confidence of men la these States
poralsted and waxed greater. It was
grounded in knowledge of possessions
necessary to progress and prosperity
and beyond the power of man to de
The editor has unbounded faith in
the natural resources ot the South,
and he Bays that the facts of today
had to be as a natural consequence.
The picture drawn of the period fol
lowing the war is not overdrawn and
we have but to contemplate lt to see
how little cause we have for losing
faith and crying hard times. He
"In April, 1865, the prospect for
these eleven State was most appal
ling, with quite 250,000 of the flower
of their population killed or per
manently disabled In a for year's war,
billions nt real and personal property
greatly deteriorated or absolutely de
stroyed, fluid capital at a minimum,
cities in ashes, mills and factories and
railroad lines in ruins, the very
ground In some sections reduced to
Infertility and the laboring forces de
moralised. Stout hearts who knew
the natural resources of these States
were prompt to encourage their fel
lows to begin the task o? rehabilita
tion. But presently they were con
fronted by conditions far worse than
war. In many respects: that for ten
years and more hampered every
movement for the recovery from the
wreck. The material losses ot that
period were added to the share of the
States In the national burdens con
sequent upon the war, and other
drawback, even more serious, but not
measurable statistically, was the
drain' upon energies represented lu
the mtgratton ot natives of these
States to other parta of Ute country."
And following this ia a story of
achievement which would make the
wonders of tho Arabian Knights seem
tame. Tho concluding paragraph-of
thia editorial is:
"What two generations ot men in
theso eleven Southern States have
achieved in Atty years, starting from
ruins, is an inspiration to courage
and energy for the younger men not
only of the South, but . ot the whole

THE COLORLESS EDITORIAL
Some days since we had something
to say about the editorial pages bf
Newspapers ta which we referred not
only to the Important of editorials
In a newspaper, but spokt of ?he out
spoken editorial page aa th* ideal
one. We have been thinking about
P. ?Ince thea, and hove decided that
about the worst editorial page. In a
certain sense, ls the colorless one.
By this we mean editorials that keep
jest as far from taking a decided
stand cn any question aa it 1? possi
ble to take. A gentleman was tell
ing as recently of aa editor, who by
the way, ts cot tn tL"ji state who re
quested that aa editorial be written
for- tn? paper of which' he was the
head, and ia giving instructions aa to
the* kind ot editorial he wished, he
ssld that lt must come Just as near
taking ut, side as lt waa possible for
it*s*tt*? .?written tn other words, his
sheet was . strictly neutral one. Now
we should like to know what a news-1
paper taking this position is wort '
to any body or to anything?
O course, the vici?os editorial
page is the worst, but such a paper
while lt may la.it. for a while, ls
bound, in the couree of time, to have
an end, bnt the colorless editorial
paper may go on for years and nev?r
take any position. While pecpl? may
have a contempt !or lt, they will tol
erate lt as a weakling which is neith
er fit to live nor die. We do not
think that people,, as a rule, appre
ciate the man who has no decided
views, or If he bas -them is without
the moral courage to xpress him
self, nor have they any more appre
ciation for the newspaper that runs
along this line. Somotlmes people
imagine that this' ls the way to get
business, but it ls a mistake. The
thoroughgoing business man Is not
built that way and he is never In
clined to do business with a fellow
who is a weakling.
The thing to do is to be something
and suy something. These are the
kind of people that the world needs
today, i whether they be on the tri
pod, in the pulpit or In the pew. The
colorless editorial page never- stirs
anybody or anything. It is a life
less, useless thing which people pass
by without consideration.-Greenwood

THE HELL ~ UND THAIN-A
Tom Gray lay down on the bar room j
Having drunk BO much he could drink j
And fell asleep with a troubled bral':,
To dream that he rode on the hell
The engine with blood was red and
And brilliantly lit by a brimstone
An imp, for fuel, was shoveling bones, !
Aa the furnace roared with a thousand |
The boiler was filled with laser beer, |
And the devil himself waa the engi
The passengers made such a motley
Church member, Atheist, Gentile and
Kich men in broadcloth and beggars
Handsome young ladies and withered
Yellow and black men, red and white,
Chained together, a horrible sight.
Faster and faster the engine flew,
Wilder and wilder the country grew.
Louder and louder the thunder crash
Brighter and brighter the lightning
Hotter and hotter the air became,
Till ' e clothes were burned from
each quivering frame.
And in the distance they heard such a
"Ha, ha!" cracked the devil, "we're!
And oh, how the passengers shrieked
And begged the devil to stop the train.
But he capered about, and danced with1
And laughed and joked at their agony.
"My faithful friends, yoi* have done
And the devil can never a pay day,
You have bullied the weak and robbed
And the hungry brother have turned
from your door.
You have gathered up gold where the ]
And given free want to your hellish
You've drank, and rioted and mur
dered and lied,
And mocked at God in your hellborn
You've paid full fare so Til carry you |
For it is only right that you get your
due, , "
For every laborer is worth his hire,
So I'll land you safe in my lake of
Where my fiery Imps will torment you
And all in vain you will sigh for a

Then Tom awoke with* $jf awful ?ry
His clothes soaked wet and hla hair
And he prayed as he never prayed be
To be saved from hell'' and the devil's j
And his crying and praying were not
For he never more rode on the hell
? FORMULA3 a
D FOR DESTROYING FLIES . a
The following formula la a good j
one for destroying fly larvae.
The Department of Agriculture has
recently lasued a Bulletin, No. 118,
entitled "Fxperiments in the Destruc
tion ot Fly Larvae In Horse Manure."
The bulletin says in part:
"By far the most effective, economi
cal and practical of the substances
ls borax in the comtnereiil form in
which lt la available throughout the
"Borax increases the water-solua
ble nitrogen, ammonia and alkalinity
of manure, and, apparently, does trot
permanently injure the bacterial
The directions in the Balletin are J
as follows: '
"Apply 0.82 pound borax to every |
10 cubic feet (C lus.) of manure im
mediately on ita removal from the
barn. Apply borax particularly
around the outer edges ot the pile , ot
with a flour sifter or any fine sieve,
and sprinkle two or three gallons of
water over the borax-treated manure.
''The reason for applying the bo
rax to the fresh manure immediately
after Its removal from the atable la
that the flies lay their eggs on the
fresh manure, and borax, when it
cornea in contact with the eggs, pre
vents their hatching. As the mag
gots congregate at Ute oater edges ot
the pile, most of the borax should
be applied there, lite treatment
should be repeated with each addition
of fresh manare.
"In addition to the application of
borax to horse manure, it may be ap
plied tn the same proportion to other
manures, aa well as to refuse end
garbage. Borax, may also be applied
to floors and crevices in barna, su
bies, markets, etc., aa well aa tba
