?IN SCHOOLROOM WALLS."
Attention is again called to the ar
ticle, "In Schoolroom Walls," which
will appear in Sunday's issue, of tho
Intelligencer. Dealing as it does with
education and the history ot the
sohools In Anderson, lt will be ex
tremely Interesting to every true An
dersonlan.
Anderson vouity is now one of the
leading countle/, in the state tn the
. advancement rU education, containing
? ninety-odd schools, with a total enroll
ment of something over, 11,000 pupils.
It leads in the number of rural school
Improvement associations and has
therefore been designated as tho ban
ner county in this work.
How waa all thia brought about?
It hon taken time of course and in vhe
early days the boy or girl that received
'? an education had to work much harder
. than those of today, when a school Is
, within easy? reach of everyone In the
county.
Anyone who reads the article writ
f ten by Mrs. Louise Ayer Vandlver will
hr.vo a clearer conception of the ear
lier school dsjrs and why today An
derson is one of the foremost vduca
\ tlonal cities in South Carolina.
Tho article will appear In tomor
row's issue of this paper.

We wonder what a stranger would
have tb-/Jght had ha happened to pass
through Anderson yesterday morning
.just about ll o'clock, when the morn
ing aervlce at the McLendon tent wea
over. There was absolutely "nothing
doing" In the business section of the
city between the hours of 10 and ll
o'clock, but on von e who looked up
towards tbs postofflce when the serv
ices were over could have seen that

would have been impossible for any
man to create the interest or deep
concern which be has done in that
length of time. Every man and wo
man in Anderson uppears to be deeply
Interested In thc services and the larg
est attendance on record was that of
last night. There Is no telling what
will happen In Anderson before these
meetings are over.
MR, IHEBTA.
Closer contact with Victoriano Hu
?rta, late of Spain and more remotely
af Mexico, has served to remove cer
tain uri?&*"oruble impressions of that
gentleman. As a New York business j
man and a I^ong Island commuter, he
iloesn^t seem by any means the cold
blooded assassin that most Americans
have pictured him. And if ho ever
tried to drink up all the brandy In
Mexico City, he has shown no dispo
sition to tackle a similar job in New
York.
At his Forest Hills home, surround
ed by his family and retainers, Gen.
Huerta hasn't yet stood anybody up
against the garago to be shot. He
hasn't assassinated any of the neigh
bors, or robbed any hon roosts. His
activity is limited, for the moBt part, to
running the lawn mower and digging
in the garden. His favorite recreation
is scanning the stars through a tele
scope. This terror of Mexico and late
enoray o? tho United States love? the
?tara, and is an astronomer of no mean
ability.
Gen. Huerta bas an office among the
big buildings of lower Manhattan. He
ls a civil engineer .and is said to be a
good one. He took the engineering |
courso l? the Mexican military college,
and was graduated with honor in five
years matead of the usual eight. His
military map of Mexico ls said to bc j
the best in existence.
It's usually like that-when you
come to know a bad man he isn't so
bad after all. Anyhow, if Gen. Huerta
was as monstrously wicked a Mexican
as we pictured him, he's been, so far,
n very decent American.
SCIENTIFIC MENUS.
A restaurant established for the uoe
of New York department ot health em
ployes exhibits certain Innovations in
Une with the most modern dietary
theories. Every article on the bill of
fare has Its food values carefully fig
ured out and indicated on the menu
card.
A patron who wants roast beef, for
example, finds by glancing at the card
that a twenty-cent portion will weigh
four ounces and that by taking it into
his system he will absorb 27 grams of
protein-the one Indlsponsabe food
element-and a total of 460 calories,
or heat-and-energy units.
A club luncheon ls set forth in this
fashion:
Cream of asparagus soup, 5 cents- I
one-half pint, 230 calories, 7 grams j
protein.
Salade a la sante, 8 cents-370 cal
ories, 2 grams protein.
Glass of milk, 4 cents-7 ounces, 160
calories. 7 grama protein.
Apple pie (one-sixth) with cheese
(one cu. Inch), 6 cents-39o calories,
8 grams protein.
Whole wheat bread (2 slices) with
butter (one-half ounce)-120 calories,
5.5 grams protein.
Total. 22 cents-1,410 calories, 33.5
grams protein.
Aong with these specifications, the
menu cards contains explanations of
tho scientific dietary system, so that if
any customer doesn't get hui money's
worth of calories and things lt's his
own fault.
If this system ever becomes the rule,
.nero will probably be a big change
In patrons' orders, especially In the
fashionable restaurants. It's likely
Uiat the ordinary cittiens when he
finds that tb* more fancy and expens
ive a dish ls, the less nourishment
there ls In lt, will declare for the
simple Ute.
And yet, yon never, can tell. It may
be a long time before the public ls
content simply to buy food, rather
than trimmings, elaborate service and
music. * ?

One of the best dressed men t'.ie
Observer man has seen lately was
Supt. T. J. Digby of the Oakland
mills. He bloomed out saturday in
what might have been taken for a
Palm Beach suit-except that it look
ed too good for that-and with cloth
shoes. Being complimented on his fine
appearance, he explained that the suit
Including the shoes and birt and
necktie, was nade In his own mill;
that is the cloth was. A Philadelphia
tailor built the suit and an Atlanta
concern the shoes. Mr. Digby himself
gave the suit the creamy flannelly ap
pearance by dyeing it, getting just the
right tint. Mr. Digby has another suit
made from Oakland mill goode-a

Roller Mill fer Chester.
Wo understand that Mr. D. H.
Shannon is interested in the estab
lishment of a roller mill In Chester,
and we ht>pe that business men of
the community will assure him of
their Interest and support, as seven
or eight times as much wheat has
been produced in the county this year
as any ofher year In quite a while,
and the farmers will become dis
couraged if there is no convenient
mill for the grinding of their crop.
This is a matter that is of vita! in
terest and concern to Chester, and
we hope that the business interests
will endeavor to persuade Mr. Shan
non to take the step.-The Reporter.

Tho farmers of Sumter count/ who
gave heed to the advice so generally
given last fall to plant more small
grain, have now harvested ilieir crop?
of wheat, oats and rye and many of
them have on hand a surplus over and
above what will l>e needed for farm
use this year. The problem now is
to find a market for this grain. The
homo grown oats is heavier and bet
ter quality than the feed oats sold on
the local market by grain dealers and
should command nt least an equal
price. Tho local feed dealers buy a
good many car loads of western oats
and If they want to encourage crop
diversification they can do so by ob
taining their supply of oats from
Sumter county farmers.-Sumter

LESSON
(By E. O. SELLERS, Acting Director ot
Bunday Behool Course cf Moody Bible
Institute, Chicago.)
LESSON FOR JUNE 27
REVIEW, SECOND QUARTER.
READING LESSON-Paalm 78:05-71
GOLDEN TKXT-I myself will be the
shepherd of my sheep.-KzeVIel Zi:U.
Tho upproxiraato time covered by
the?e lessons ls from 1091 or 1078 B.
C. to 1035 or 1023 B. C., somewhere
between 50 and 60 years. The moat
prominent character ls David.. He is
related to every lesson, except the
first, elthf s an actor or an author.
Thia fact gives us a center about
which to revolve our review. By mak
ing assignments a week in advance a
chapter summary of David's life can
be presented as follows: Chapter I,
Saul's disobedience, and ita relation to
David. II, The secluded shepherd boy
and Samuel. Ill, The boy and the
giant. IV. The musician and the king.
V, The boy and his friend. VJ, Tho
young man in exile. VII, The young
man as King. VIII, The. king and the
ark. IX, The king's great sin. The re
malning lessons will make excellent
reading matter to be interspersed with
the presentation of the various chap
ters and we may cali the whole pro
gram "From Obscurity to Power."
An excellent suggestion ts made in
"Peloubet's Selected Notes," of mak
ing a large chart ruled vertically into
five columns and horlzcitally into
twelve spaces, one tor each lesson.
Label the vertical columns respective
ly, place, characters, intervening
events, key verse, and principal teach
ing. Then bave each ot the sixty dif
ferent spaces assigned to classes or to
individuals who will each In turn, be
ginning at the upper left hand corner
with lesson one, fill In the different
spaces in order until the whole chart
is covered. If a blackboard ls used
these facts can be written within the
different squares,'otherwise care must
be taken to have the facts written up
on previously prepared pieces of card
board, or paper, each io correspond to
the dimensions of the various squares
on the large chart. As In the case of
the "chapter revisw." previous sug
gested. Lessons U?+ XI and XII, being
from the Psalms, may be read and no
further attention be given to them so
far as the chart is. concerned. For the
younger classes a good story teller
can give a running story of the lessons
which will prove highly interesting.
To drill the school or the separate
classes on some of the outstanding
facts of the booka of First and Second
Sa mufti and tho Psalms will prove a
profitable expenditure of time. For
illuBtru>y/rt: Who are the heroes of
First Samuel? Of Second Samuel?
What chief events in the life of David
aro recorded in First Samuel? In Sec
ond Samuel? Where ia the record ot
Da*id ssdColiath?
' f K running commentary ls desired
thvj following suggestions may help:
Lesson I. Saul L? set aside, hence
the^need of David, "a man after God's
own heart."
Lesson II. Samuel's choice set aside
and David the youngest son ls select
ed to be king.
Lesson III. The wonderful shepherd
paalm which ls a "testimony" of David
tho shepherd king. (Have the school
recite it in concert.)
Lesson IV. A venture of faith. Je
hovah's watchful caro over David, and
the downfall of u mighty foe.
.Lesson V. Saul's vain attempt to
slay David. The development ot
hatred, the protecting care over those
iffho "put their trust in Jehovah."
Lesson VI. The love of David and
Jonathan, an Illustration of the sur
rendered life and a type of the love
for ns of one who has said, "Hence
forth I coll you not servants but
friends."
Lesson V?I. David's generosity to
bia persistent persecutor. David did
not do to Saul what Saut tried to do
to David. Though selected to become
the king, David recognised in Saul one
of God's chosen men and patiently
bided his time till God should remove
this recreant, disobedient servant and
place him in the position of power.
Lesson VOX David exalted to ba
king, first over Judah and later over
the entire nation. Also the record of
his shrewd manner of making friends
with all of the tribes ot Israel.
Lesson IX. David established Jeru
salem to be both' tho civic and . relig
ious center of the nation. His Joy in
worship and In God's service points
forwari to our "chief shepherd."
Lesi on X. David waa after all only
human. In the midst of hla Idle lux
ury he succumbed to the allurement
of temptation and committed an awful
sin, an act that involved many others
and made the. sam total one fearful to
behold. How are the mighty fallen!
The higher they are tho harder the
tait
i Let thia part of tba review consist
of reading the psalms with but little,
preferably ho, comment.
If what has gone before has been
prayerfully and vividly presented,
comment on these two lessons la need
less.

ID1 it ?cal considerations. It was nev
.r seriously contended by anybody
hat tlie Nebraskan ?ad any special
ltnesa for the place. Mr. Lansing,
>n the other bond, bop been chosen
o succeed Mr. Bryan, on no other
iccount than that of .th? quallfica
lons which he possesses for the dis
gorge of its duties. It would be diffi
cult to cite another instance where
in appointment of anything like
>qual Importance has been made with
such complete disregard of politics.
It ls the war, of course, which he/.
produced this significant change of at
titude. "When Mr. Bryan was made
secretary of state the world was at
peace, with the exception of Mexico,
ind it did not seem probable that
my special diplomatic knowlege or
'il;ill would be needed In the post to
which he was called. Today this
knowledge and skill are absolutely
essential; and it in because Mr. Lan
sing is believed to possess bath in high
that his nomination will give satis
faction to the people of the United
States of all parties. A few months
ago he was unknown to Ino nation.
Now be ls chosen" to occupy what is for
the time being Its most important of
fice with the exception only of the
presidency itself. It is a remarkable
example of the opportunity seeking
the man.
Hr, Lansing will have the chance
to do his country great service. His
task is fraught wjth many difflcul
trcu mid hazards, but lt is one which
should bring to the front tho very
best that ls in any man. The whole
fabric of International relationships
is being rewoven and the secretary
of state bf the United States bas the
opportunity to prove himself a mas
ter spinner. All that the public
knows of Mr. Lansing has ?tended to
croate a thoroughly favorable impres
sion'of him. There will be the most
general agreement that the"-appoint
ment is in all the circumstances the
best which President Wilson could
have made; and if the good will of the
American people can accomplish such
a result, Mr. Lansing Is assured of a
highly successful career In the great
office whose requirements and possi
bilities were never so large as now.
Charleston Family Row.
(Columbia Record.)
There is to be a munclpal election
In Charleston some time before this
year is out, and tho campaign warms
up. Munclpal campaigns in Charles
ton usually last titree or four years.
; Maj. Tr ls ti am T. Hyde, who oppos
ed John P. Grace before, is the only
announced candidate against Mayor
Grace, wbo seeks reelection, i
The Hyde people controlled the De
mocratic party convention and made
the rules for the campaign. The con
vention by a strict partisan vote de
feated the Grace move for, public
meetings In each ward.
subsequently Mayor Grace sent a
long challenge to Mayor Hyde to meet
him on the stump. This fte major
declined, signing his *3tter "very re
spectfully" whether be mesnt lt that
way or not. Mayor Grace made an-'
other effort to get Major Hydo to meet
him on the stump. Again the major
courteously declined.
. Mayor Grace, who ls a regular
slinging nettle when he gets Into ac
tion, then wrote a letter full of taunts,
et cetera, in which he accused Major
