His death, although not unex

friends. Everybody loved Mel
vin Holder, Ho was a man of
high ideals and had great respect
for everything that tended to
the upbuilding of mankind. He
was kind hearted and sympa
thetic. If he could prove a bles
sing to any one it was niever too
cold or inconvenient for him to
go. He was of a very cheerful
disposition, always looking on
the bright side of life.
He joined the church in early
youth and has in every way
shown a Christly spirit. He was
a great believer in prayer, and
Swhen asked by his lovedi ones if
there was anything they could
do for him, he would only ask
* them to pray for his recovery.

Out For Congress
Victor B, Cheshire, for seven
years owner and editor of the
Anderson In telligencer, has sold
his palper to a syndicate of An
derson business men, and has
retired, for the present at least,
from the newspaper field. Mi'.
Cheshire will enter politics, and
his energies for the time being
will be (levoted to the presenta
tion of his claims for the suf
fr'ages of the voters of the third
congressional district. ~ '.
Mr. Cheshire is one of the
hardest fighters and one of the
most untiring workers in the
dlistrict, andl will doubtless make
himself felt in no small degree
in political circles. The Courier,
and the paper from which he
has withdrawn have for somie
years taken ' onnosite sides in
matters of State politics, and
while we have seldom agree d t'
with his position, we have bee~n (
forced to admire the fairness
and frankness which clharacter
ized the war which he waged
for what he felt was for the
best. We are sure thnit he felt
as lie fought, though we by no
means agreed with the mieasur'es
for which lie fought, nor the
men whose causes lie espoused.
However we may~ differ from
another in opinions, honesty of
purpose is one of the miost de
sirable traits, and one we are al
ways glad to recognize.
D)uring Mr. Cheshire's years
of service in~ connection wvit~h
The1 Intelligenicer he has made
an enviable record as a news- t
paper man, as the circulation
and patronage of Tlhe Intelli
gencer wvill bear' witness. He
will doubtless enter 1the political
arena with characteistic energy
and determination. --- Walhialla
