It should be borne in mind
that the present apparent: cessa
tion in the activity of the beetle
is deceptive, in that its presence
at this time of the year is dot so
clearly indicated by the fading
of the needles. This is dtue to
fact that the needles fade more
slowly in winter than in sum

bear this in mind and would do
well to keep a careful watch for
the fading of trees from now
until the middle of May, and in

Anderson Man Killed

from injuries received last Fri

was en route from Coal Fields,
Va., to Anderson to spend the
Young Simpson arrived .in
Anderson Saturday with the
right side of his face and head
badly bruised. The injuries af
fected his mind and he could
not give an intelligent account
of his trouble. From his discon
nected talks, it seems that he was
changing trains at Irving when
some one struck him on the
head with a blunt instrument.
He says that when he regained
consciousness he was in the of
fie of an Irving physician
where he had been taken. He
was placed aboard the train and
came to Anderson. An autopsy
was held today, and it was dis
covered that Simpson's ekull
had been fractured by the lick
and that an abscess had formed
beneath the skull.
The coroner held an inquest
and the verdict was that the de
ceased came to his death at the
hands of unknown parties. It
is presumed that efforts'kvill be
made to locate the guilty party.
