A PUBLIC DUTY- TO PERFORM
Every cltlsen of any community any
where has a public duty' to perform.
And if this statement does not cover
everyone, wo cannot find language to
ault. So, Mr. Citlacn, Miss Citizen or
Mrs. Citizen, If you have been of tho
opinion that someone ciao can do
your public work for you, you have
another think coming. It you feel
that because you have little interest
in a clean-up cai ^algn, for instance,
that you should take no part then you
aro mlstr'ten. If you have a talent
tor doing thia, and not for Something
oise, then you should do it by all
means. It may be a little thing you
have an aptitude for doing, but by all
moana you should feel an interest In
public affaira, and strive to uti those
public spirited cltlsena who seem to
have shouldered tho en Uro bm; .en.

ONE WAY TO DO THINGS.
Anderson College shows a game
spirit. Several years ago the people
of that city decided to build a college
and subscribed $100,000 and a beau
tiful site. The college was turned
over to the State Baptist convention,
but every dollar of the money wa?
given by Anderson people.
The college was organized and put
upon a high plane by J. K. Breedin,
now editor ot the Manning Time?.
When Mr. Brecdln retired, the trus
! tees decided to take their time and
get for the head of tho institution the
best man available. Dr. Jas. P. Kin
ard, who had liad an executive aa veil
as professional connection with Win
throp for years, waa chosen. It waa
a great day for Anderson col leg -, for
Dr. Kinard is so well equipped, so

Now comes the announcement that
the tvusteea have secured the service?
of Fred M. Burnett as treasurer. This
shows that they do mean business.
Mr. Burnett ls a young mountain boy,
educated at Pu mian, successful in
mill w?lf?rer work ' under Thos. F.
Parker, and waa invited to Anderson
to put on a campaign for a $100,000

The following editorial will be of
much Interest In Anderson Just now:
A public meeting has been called
for Wednesday night at the chamber
of commerce which should be attend
ed by all those who have been sum
moned. This meeting ls expected to

has been somewhat slow in Cincinnati.
But lt has Como at last, and the pros
pect's are moat reassuring for suc

I been started, and to neglect which
; would be disgraceful, is apV?rently
the most systematic and comprehen
sive of any so far launched. .
Pr- chief value is that it aims at
permanent reform and continued ef
fort. The trouble with many past
movements of the kihd has been that
they were a flash in the pas, and were
gotten up to wash the face of the city
but once. The* town was then al
lowed to slip back into the mere or
less bedraggled condltoin.
Now, however, lt is proposed to
form an organisation on business
lines, having sixty branches In as
roany districts. Each of these dis
trict? ls to conduct a clean up cam
paign not once, but continuously.. The
chairmen of these districts organisa
tions will oonstlwte a general osecu
tlve committee. They are expected to
furnish the plans, the enthusiasm and
the prod to the sub organisations.
The' larger,body ls to become a part

ly does not want to bc behind other
cities in this regard. With our hills

It Hind Sight Better
Than Front Sight?
Read This Article, And Then An
swer This Old Time Worn
At llrat thought ono would Kay that
lt waa; but when tho matter ia given
a moment's thought, one will won
der what good will result from learn
ing thc truth about a matt *r after lt
ia too late to rectify any mistake
that baa been made.
Of course, wc all. know that it is
much easier to say: - " I told you so",
after an event than to be able to fortell
what will take place under certain
conditions. B-u-t what does it profit
one, to know about a certain thing
after lt ls too late to remedy a mis
take already mado? That's thc point.
In tills connection, it might well be
said that "front night" In the mat
ter of painting one's own home, or
a tenant's house ls a far better bus
iness policy that leaving lt without
paint, and then later when thc cle
ments have eaten into thc woodwork
terribly, be compelled to pay a re
pair bill ten times thc amount of
what it would have ..oat to paint lt
in thc flr^t place.
It ia a well known and generally ac
cepted fact that paint protects build
ings from tho ravages of wind, sun,
rain, frost, snow and Icc much bet
ter than any one agency. And at a
very, very small cost. This being
true, it strikes the thinking person
as a remarkably strange thing that
so many persons neglect this matter
of protection of property from the
damage which the weather is con
tinually doing to their property, and
yet they would think that you were
absolutely crazy, If you should sug
gest that they did not carry protec
tion aagiuBt Ure, in the shape of Are
insurance. Why is this? Wo know
that all prAperty in this southern clim
ate, where the sun's hot rays are
beating on it for seven or eight months
out of every year ls continually de
preciating in value; and yet there
arc so many, many property owners
who neglect this very necessary mat
ter of paint protection, to say noth
ing about the looks, of thc houses.
One ..should not, udder any clrcum
astancep, think of paint as an expense
but rather aa an Investment; for that
is what it IB , and a mighty good one,
too. Property ls valuable If it were
not, you would not carry fire insur
ance. Weather insurance is far more
necessary than fire insurance. There
is only one defense against weather,
and that is paint.--Of course, ono
should use good judgment In the selec
tion of the paiiit; because if it is in
ferior in quality, there is very little
protection afforded. We sell a paint
that has stood the test of more than
fifty years experience. Our custom
ers are those who have used Patton's
"Sun Proof paints. Its ingredients
are thoao which experience has prov
ed to be the mostjjsjolent in protect
ing property against* fife ravages of
the elements. Patton's "Sun Proof'.'
paint spreads smoothly and evenly.
It places a bulwark, between your
buildings and tho weather- that affords
you the greatest protection possible.
Not only does Oils well 'and favor
ably known Patton's "Sun Proof"
paint afford the maximum amount ot
protection possible for a given amount
of money, but a house paint? d with
this paint will present the mest pleas
ing appearance possible. We carry
every color that's made. We can give
you any and every combination that
your taste should dictate. We will
furnish .an estimate.- for any job at

your part, whatever; and we know
