The Twilight Witch.
The twilight witch comes with her]
And strews them through th? blue;
Then breathes below the summer b?ral
A breath ot meadow rue;
She tralla her veli across the sklos
And mutters to tho trees,
And in the wood, with firefly eyos
? - She make's the mysteries
Tho twilight witch, with elf and fay, |
* Is coming down the slumber way,
?V Sleep, my dearie, sleep.
The twilight witch, with '.crescent
Stoops on tlie wooded hill,
Shu answers to the owlet's tuno,
, And to tho whippoorwill.
She leans above the reedy pool
And makes tho drowsy frog.
And with the toadstool, dim and cool, |
1 Mum gray the old dead'log.
twilight witch comes stealing |
To take,you off to slumber town,
Sleep, my dearie, sleep.
Tho twilight witch, With windlike |
lias entered in the room;
She steals around your trundle-bed
! And whispers in the gloom.
She says: "I brought my Bteed along, |
My flory steed of flume,
To boar you, like a brent of ?um,
Into the' land of dreams.
1 ara tho witch who takes your hand
And leads you off to fairyland.
Tho far-off land of sleep."
A BIG DAY FOR ANDERSON.
One of the biggest days Anderson
bas seen in a- long while was tito |
county field, day held yesterday
big not oniy for .the city but for thel
county, and for the cause of education
In tho county. Anything which brings
together 10,000 people in one day la j
'big thing, and worthy the support]
and cooperation of everyone interest
ed In building up and improving, lt
la a bigger thing when lt has to db
with tho plastic minds of the children
-the future men and women of the
county ninS State. Tho tendency has
been to minimize the worth of Ute In
stitutions of the country having to do
with tho education of the boys and
gilla, but that tendency has been re
versed und the people ot today are|
rtulyytfj to their support, and are get
ting enthusiastic over Ute possibilities
cf training fer citizenship. Men and
women oro getting together and are
planning- for lugger and better things
?or the educational growth ot the
country. The natone!' government is
i^Jending all assistance possible to help
K to train and help thom
; .selves. Hundreds or men are engaged
OH exports to -educate and assist the
? solving problems which are
^^HHj^M* progress. We the
bone il; Am?w?tyt \ Utes* tendencies, and
the outgrowth of these awakened
1 ia seen In such gatherings as
waltha* of. yesterday.
In such a mass of men, women and
chit?ren, one in likely to fe?1 th**:
their Individuality ls lost, but In this
we aro. mistaken anti yesterday ono
stood out prominent In Ute
?icoesa o? the day-Miss Maggie Gar
county rulral school super
visor. Rho lt was who planned it and
eh*-'lt was who worked out th? detalla
----js,:>t'. i.e. program as waa so succeaa
; nut. The Intelligencer
l v In giving honor fo whom
I? due, and standing out Inst
Mlnently foMovrftwr the se
Oieir unselfish and unstinted work in
Jetting their schools ready for jhc
day, andi in preparing the exhibits.
Lastly, the pupils of the county are
due praise for the willingness with
which they entered into all the plans
of their- tascher? and the program a?
mapped out for the day. It was a fact
worthy of comment that so msny en
tered Into all the exercises and con
tests, and that they did their parts so |
creditably reflects credit upon their
touchers, and those who trained them
for their parts.
WHY KOT AN ORGANIZATION.
The IntelMrtacer notes with pleas
ure the great Interest shown in
athletics by those who were partici
pants yesterday In the Held day ex- ?
orclses. A strong mind tn a strong|
body ls the goal to which teaching j
should aim. The schools of the coun
ty havq some And material for build
ing up a fine athletic association, and
Thc Intelligencer would suggest the]
organization of a county athletic as
sociation, membership to be held by
tho sdheels. A series of competitive
meeta should be held at different
times and places, under the arrange
ment and-management of the officers
selected for that purpose '*y the or
ganisation.. For. Instance the athletic
exercices Yesterday were not carried
out with the dispatch they should !
bard boen: given. Tba grounds were
not arranged as well aa were needed,
and thc crowds did not keep their
dlstance'so as tO allow ox the best ex
hibitions of skill. Suth details as
these could W4$t be handled by the
officials of an organization, and prepa
rations made ahead of the time for the
meets to take caro of these details.
We trust the teachers will take this j
matter np at an early meeting und j
arrange for an organization.
YALUE OP PASTURE.
The South, with ita ,long summer
seasons, tts deep fertile soil, and its
abundant rainfall, is by nature as
well adapted for pasturage as any
land that the sun shines on.
But we have practically no pas
tures. Ther?"are~tbree reasons why
we have no pastures. The first rea
son ls cotton. The second reason is
cotton. And the third reason is cot
Wo can. If we want to, have pas
tures the whole year round. The
clovers,: th? vetches, rape, rye, oats,
barley and other things will furnteh
an abundant winter vegetation.
But the cheapest', the easiest to
have, and the moat profitable* of nil
ls the summer pasture.. And lt a man
wants a summer pasture, be rni ? have
it by stirring himself just a blt dur
ing either of the months of April or
The land ought a> be well broken
and nicely pulverized. Then laid off
in checks about two to three feet
apart. One or two r-prigu of burmuda
grass stuck down ir <>ach cheok. And
then In . some wet spell in June or
July throw about seventy five or one
hundred pounds of nitrate of soda per
acre on tt and you've got lt.
Any piece of land treated that way
will bo ready to give, back some very
good grasing tn August7 and Septem
ber. If lt is ferule land, lt will give
a considerable amount of ?"-"lng Ute
very first year.
Old burmuda soda should be broken !
up ovrry two or three yean? and
treatod with a Might dressing V
nitrate of soda By breaking them up I
yon get two beneficial results. One j
j ts that the burmuda wil itself do much
better. Tho land gets hard and stiff
and Ute grass In retarded in its
growth, but by breaking breaking the
soil, tho grass is sent on its way
rejoicin*.. Then also by breaking up
the laud tn carly spring, you get the
benefit ot other ^grasses. Crab grass
will not grow scarcely at all on hard
uncultivated land, but ls luxuriant on
land that Is culUvated. And crab
grass is a very sweet and nutrlcious
food for either hogs or catUe. So by
breaking St up, you reap the benefit
of two good grasses instead of ono.
Tho point is that men should be j
willing to give some attention and)
work to tho cultlv&Uon of their pas
tures as such H they expect them to
be reiAuneraUve. And Englishman
once said that he believed that he
??..td have ?? ?w? H y*4tu? as'any
ho^eise, if h i could" live two hun
dred and fifty years, so that he could!
fficienl to fix it to his
y&ut many ot cur good'
nth are not willing
day* and a half to the
ed burmuda' grass is worth two ot
One acre;.of good burmuda grass
Will make more money while grazing
beef cattle than it will in cotton. The
beef Itself will dp all the gathering
for you and then carry lt to market
for you besides. .
CLEA N-CP WEEK.
The clean-up campaign for Ander
son will begin April 19, but this is not
too soon to begin to plan for thc
campaign. ' Anderson has won some
distinction in the past for her en
deavors ulong this line, and for muny
years the ladles through their splen
did orguuizaLlou, the Civic League,
has made progress it: cleuniug up the
city, and inculcating the spirit of
cleanliness. As fur back a? April 0,
1907, the records of this organization
show that the city council was asked
to aid them in making a clea up
campaign. This hus been kept up
The plan to devote one week each
yeer to cleaning up and tidying up
the city is commendable, and we trust
the response this year as In the past
Will be Mich as to bring favorable
comment for the thorough and sani
tary manner in which the cleuning is
done. Every organization and every
individual In the city should respond
most heartily to this determination
to make the city a clean and whole
some city. The effect of cleanliness
ls felt In the individual, and if the city
1? made thoroughly clean, the
thoughts and aspirations of the in
dividual will also be clean and uplift
ing, "Cleanliness is akin to Godli
ness" we are told, and with the
knowledge that disease ls so often
transmitted through germs and In
jurious insects, the effect of allowing
them to breed in places of filth can
not bo overestimated.
?Vlean Up and Paint Up," ls a good
slogan for every citizen from now till
Apr.; 24th at least.
The following Btory has a moral:
vin a tenement district lived a fam
ily surrounded by filth and dirt. The
whole atmosphere of the little room
1 which they called "home" was one of
hopeless depression and squalor. To
prove the power ot suggestion, a good
woman placed on the table a minia
ture statue of the Venus of Milo.
Against this grimy back-ground of
'shone out in 'all her whiteness and
purity, elevating and brightening her
strange surroundings. The good wo
man called a week later and found
that the place had been cleaned up,
the dirt had been washed away and
a pathetic but sincere attempt af dec
oration had been made-the subtle in
fluence was effective.
It the homes In a neighborhood be
come weather-beaten and shabby,
values In the whole neighborhood
deteriorate. But If some house-own
era paints and brightens up his home,
it radiates Ita attractiveness In every
direction and soon the whole neigh
borhood ls made bright and attractive.

Glee Club, which were onjoyed and
Tba* portion of the exercises claim
ing most attention, was the declama
tion contest, which was engaged in by
15 girls and 12 boys, representing as
many schools. Judging from the
ease ami ability displayed by the
speakers there will be no dearth ot
orators in Anderson county for many
years to come, lt was no easy mat
ter for the Judges to decide upon the
winners, but the two medals, one for
the girl3 and one- for the boys, were
won by little .Miss Ruth Parker who
recited James Whitcomb r-?ley'i
poem "Little Orphan Annie," In a
most captivating manner. "Indepen

various class rooms bf the college.
It was Impossible to secure the names

One of tba most interesting features
of the entire program was the ex

There was one booth set aside for
exhibits from those schools which did
not have enough work for display to
warrant a separate booth being set
aside for them. A large number ot
schools were* represented in this
A detailed mention of thc exhibits
would fill columns of newspaper
space, but general mention should be
made of the most outstanding fea
tures of this feature of the program.
On,, of the most interesting displays
was thc exhibit from Pendleton
school, this being a display almost
wholly in domestic arts. Some of thc
needlework was the prettiest that has
ever been shown In this section of th0
The llonea Path school had a splen
did display of maps. The Hammond
school had one of tho most varied dis
plays of all, a particularly striking
feature being the colored drawings of
flowers fro mllfe. The outstanding
feature of the Old Varennes Behool
exhibit waB the manual training work
and the needlework. The McLees
school had a large and varied exhibit.
The Piedmont school had a splendid
exhibit, the most prominent feature
of the display being the work in the
the business course training, lt would
be impossible to name all the splendid
features of the exhibits. There were
approximately 700 bide ribbons
The Athletic Contests.
Exercises of a literary nature over,
dinner was served on the large cam
pus of the college. Dinner was spread
by schools and by families. It was one
of thoa edinuers such as only the good
housewives of tho country know how
On the campus, under a spacious
awning, was rigged up a model kitch
en, this being the work of Miss Janie
C. Garlirigton, who has charge of
community club work as well as the
canning and tomato club_work in the
cou?- 7 The model kitchen attracted
dieu tion from hundreds of house
wives all o*4er the county and doubt
less many of them gained helpful;
pointe*s as a result of the display.
After dinner the athletic contests
were held. The results of the various
events are given in the box at the
head of this column. Fred M. Burnett,
who was in charge of the athletics,
stated that there were' some splendid
athletes among those participating In
the contests. Tho Contests attracted
wide attention and a large percentage
of the visitors remained ?it the col
lege until after this feature of the
program had been concluded.
