Nm everybody knows it by any

it rrom sad experience.
About two years ago M. T. Hughs,
who lives near Walhalla, had a good
cow to die. and her dea!li was trace
able to the fact thal she had eaten
from the laurel bushes along a
branch In his pasture. The laurel

At any rate, it might he well for
those who have callie in pastures in
which laurel grows lo lake note or
these facts as discovered hv Mr
- .A. ti. Andrews, of thc
Blue Ridge Railway, spent a few
moments in Walhalla last week,
though lu- did not leave his private
ear after reaching town. His pres
ence, however, served to put a nu in
lier ot' people guessing as to what
brou g li I him hero and whether or
not his very casual visit had any
thin] lo do with tho possilde comple
tion DI the Hine Ridge.
The Courier is in no posilion to
snj .is to that, bill it is a well-known
lari that Col. A nd rev. s, who is not
president of the Hine Ridge, but
also vice president, of the Southern,
is n warm friend of the proposition
to complete the Hine Ridge on
through the mountains, and his visit
ran .ii least be taken as an ernest of
his interns! in "Capt. Anderson's Or
pl m 'at- tho Hine Ridge ls frcquent
1} .. mied. He had nothing to say
wit ii reference to his visit, however,
nod whatever our people may think
concerning this Hying trip is more
speculation. The nearest he came
to telling anybody anything was the
general statement thal he wanted to
see personals what is being done in
the was o' improvement work, and
io "take i look ovor thc line be
tween Walhalla and Helton."
lhere was :">t much from this \isil
to lake hop,- from, bul still then- is

take? shape on the Blue Ridge ex
tension project, howover, we may
rcs! assured of one thing, and that is
that Col. A. H Andrews will be at
the bottom Of lt. Had Mr. Andrews
bad his way. the Hine Kldi;e would
have long ago hoon finished through

State is to be congratulated upon his
return to this branch of the public
service, and Anderson has lost a
.splendid man from Hie head of their

ran doubtless do more good in his old

Col. C. ft. I). Hums, of Walhalla,
spout esveral days in Cit Ivens re
cently. While wo do not intend to
take much stock in political matters
during UK; approaching campaign,
we would modestly suggest that Col.
Hums would make the State of South
Carolina one of tim best Comptroller
(?ener?is she has ever had. If Wal
halla will excuse us, Dickens would
like to nominate Col. Hums for that
positlbl .- Pic kens Sentinel.
We ul'l excuso the Sentinel, to be
suie. A c ?I more than that, we thank
our friend for the nomination, which
we most heartily second. Mr. Hums
would doubtless make a most effi
cient servant of tho public, and it
would be Oconee's great pleasure to
have opportunity to cast a unani
mous ballot for him in the coming
election, lt is up to Mr. Burns to
"i brow his hat into tho ring." The
people of Oconce will do the rest.

silken blac k banner hearing in blood
re>d letters the inscription "Demoli
tion" 1.000 men and women anar
chists, the unemployed and members
of the Industrial Workers of the
World, marched up Fifth avenue for
miles to-day without waiting to ask
the city authorities for the permit
ret)ll i real by ordinance.
Clouds obscured the sun and made
the noted thoroughfare a canyon of
gloom as th?' "army," led by Alexan

re rained lt was not a symmetri
cal l:tie. but a boisterous, noisy crowd
that jostled fashionably clad women
and men from the' sidewalks.
There was no enforcing trafile
rules. Automobiles and trolley cars
that tried to pass through the ranks
we're- held up, chauffeurs and motor
men being intimidated. One woman
in an automobile who ge>t in the way
was spat upon by a woman lu the
parade. The marchers chanted hys
terically and shouted epithets at the

This demonstration, regarded as
one of tim most extraordinary in the'
city's history, was subsequent to a
mass meeting in the" streets near
I nion Square, where 'he throng had
been denied the right to gather. The
wealth of the nation was the product
of their toll, those gathered were
told by the- speakers, and they should
march forth Into Fifth avenue and
