MAY 6, 1015. THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. Ncvrx boforo has the flro depart ment of Anderson proved its worth so convincingly na lt did Tuesday. Twice they wcro summoned to tires, both of which threatened tho very heart of the business section of tho city. Twlcu they were found in readiness and twice thoy did work which tho citizens of Anderson shall not soon forget. At 5:30 o'clock In thc morning the Jonkins-.McGowan storerooms were bunrnod, and aa the w!nd was blow ing strongly nt tho timo these flames threatened to do considerable damage. Thc flro dopartmcnt was kept con stantly pouring water on this blaze for over five hours. After that came the cleaning of tho apparatus and get ting the hose tn place. Tho mon N?d already done a full day's work. When tho second lire broke out it 7 o'clock tn tho evening the firemen woro ready iz respond to Hie call with their hose on tho wngous, which In ftrfle fighting circles lu ?quivalent to thc wiso virgins who had their lamps trlmmod and r.llcd with oil. Tho cfnolency of Chief Jackson as a flro fighter was demonstrated by the way he managed hts men and placed hlB lines of hose whero they would do thc mont good, lt takes a man of ability to compete wtth such ' a fire ns that ot last night. Till. AXDEBNON S FI ?IT. "Well. I made it all myself, and I can do lt again," aro thc words which fell from the lips of T. Q. Anderson last night as ho gazed upon the smouldering ruins of the big plant which was raducod to a pile of glow Int embers in less than an hour. This makes tho third timo In thirty days tltst hts business has been at tacked by fire. When hlB .'actory was burned to the ground a month ago he ordered new machinery by wire, and the following morning set about ng. away the rubbish and pre paring to build anew. The new plant was finished and ice again the wheels of industry a*y again, and Tommie was as ppy as ever. A few days ago he Hither blase In hts place, but lt tod to IHtlc. He planted his i lt, so to speak, and went right head. d now he ia again burned out. ere the Hames had completed Work of destruction he wan heard lo nay, willi dogged determina linn. -I dill ll all mys? ir. and I < ni do ii again." That's tin- spirit that lias made bot! Andersons, T. Q. and HIM town. TH Kl'KL COOM LOSKKS. Thc Intelligencer had thotighl one? that it would extend some word ol sympathy to thc men who lost sc heavily in last night's Ure, but on second thought we will not. l'or they arc not the kimi of men who gc about th?' world looking lor sym pathy, and wc do not believe that they want it. They an- made ni a dif ferent kimi of stuff from that. J. IO.. Harton has liecii in business hore for thirty years or more. Ile came lore with practically nothing and .A hal he has now he has made it here, hy dint of hard work and attention to bUsnleSH While a loss like that which he suffered hist night may feel like a terrible blow to him just at this time, it is really of small moment. The loss or a few thousand dollars will not prove any serious obstacle In his path. Me's made differently. The ?ame ls true of T Q. Anderson. Such things as Urea don'! worry him They are just a little Inconvenient at tirst. (hal's all. The Piedmont <v.- Northern Railway lost heavily, hut they will come back. They have too much at stake not lo do so. Besides the pbwer behind this concern ls too deeply interested In the welfare of this town to let a small lire cut any figure in what lie ls try ing o do for the community. ('apt. John H. Anderson and the niue Ridge can Btand the loss they sustained. They got off lighter than any of the others, but it would have bern the same had they been the heaviest losers. Did you ever know of a lire In this town that affected a set of men a i little as last night's lire will arfect these citizens good and true? PRIVACY No thing in life is at once so or dinarily desirable and Impossible as privacy. Privacy is invaded when ono wishes to sleep. Jt may be by the child of the neighbor, that cries. The man in the flat overhead may wake at ."? in thc morning and in a loud tone demand custard pie left iver and still on icc in the refrls >rator. These things, however, are bul the .oarse expedients which ure taken hy those to whom privacy Ts' rfblhing; who have nover sensed their desecra tion by having experienced tim hoon ; who hnvo no notion of tba fact that there are people who, surrounded by a dense silence, make chums of them selves In their own company. A satisfactory Bolltude may !..? at tacked as a species of conceit, hut lt can not he violated without atrocity to the pcacctul dweller within that charmed circle of Belf-contentnient. In times long since happily gone by, how many lucubrations have beon de railed by lightning-rod agents? Can we yet yield a perfectly candid opin ion on thc state of our heart, liver and lights to th?! casual gentlemen with a ntenn cigar who cornea in looking like thc I/eader of tho House and turns out to he nothing helter than tho local representativo of the famous company that was built on Ibo sands and yet survives? Yet these people continue to af flict tho average man. Now and again we read a scandal based on sonic ac tion of Mrs. Wife in going through Mr. Husband's coat pockets. Can they never understand-that a man's pockets arc as sacred ns lils bathtub! A man with dlrtv fingers comos lu lo sell a set of Shakespere. Or. if you io not wish Shakespere. he will make it Browning, and all thc same to him. lt may he that what he wishes is Just i sample loan, as one good fellow to mother. In that case, one may estimate the price of bis riddance and be rid ot dm. cocking up lils feet and growling it the next intrusion; "You don't want to be bothering me *hon I'm 'Breading of the Now York rl'ald. see!"-Columbia Slate.

In our very irfrulous ?State in coriif tax law a pl vision that is es p/Ocially absurd fell the purport that "Costs of repairs M property are not to be deducted fron the rents or In come derived fron sich property." John Smith ls towner or a house that, before it can t* rented for $r>00 n year or $1 a ycsr.'eguires to have its roof made waPr tight and Its plumbing sanitary na cost of S200.

These repairs observe, ore merely In the way ol'upkeep," add ing nothing to the permirent value of the property. Th'> federal income "?x law or ? ourse contains no such absurdity. It do? s not provide an inmtive for the owner of a house to kllov it to re main vacant and fall to t eces. In this particular, lioTever, tho State law would long azo have been amended except thai legislatures have not expected the la? to be en forced and have left it DD the statute books in the kopje that ben aud there, from an exceptionally ?M^ientious or exceptionally wealthy min, a few extra dollars might be S'lwzed for the State treasury.

Using I'p the Cotton. There are some people who yet love to speculate on what night have been the condition of the South today with its tremendous croc of cotton had not so large a pVtrtien of it como into demand by reason o? the war. As a matter of course, thc good prices are the result of durand, and that only. Some of the conon experts of Xew Orleans are tryintto figure out a prospectivo demand tor the whole of a crop that at one plo looked Uko lt would furnish a dis tressing surplus. The correspondent of the Xew York Post at that plarc says that up to the end of March as shown by tho government's monthly figures, cotton consumed at heme from the 16.800,000 balo commercial crop of 1914 was about 200.000 batts below the same period last vcr. while exports wore about 2,000>fW) bales below it But In recent month', exports have increased 500,000 tx ooo,(inn hales a month over 1914. ani there has been a substantial increase in monthly home consumption. Thli has led to some private estimates In quarters where, six months ago. i 3,000,000 bale unsold surplus wai prettied from the crop-that con sumption for the entire season ma: reach 17,000.000 bales. This ls al most certainly much exaggerated Many good people interested In cot ton will not admit that the consump Hon will bc as large ns last season": 14,800,000 bales, owing to the stop page of mills in Kran ce and otho parts of Europe, because of the de moralization during the first fev months of thc season, and because o tho effects of thc war abroad sinc< then. Tho latest action taken by tb? British government waB made knowi bn Tuesday. That government pro dibits tho exportation of cotton fron tho United Kingdom to Europe, ex cept in case where cotton ls consign ed to Spain, Russia. France, and Por tupul. As a matter of fact, such ex ports are very small, ava.-aglng 15, OOO bales a week, therefore the en tiro matter was of no significance. Charlotte Observer. How Hair Tums White.
