For more than a vear it has heen evident to persona informed that Dillon would have to put in a new power plant. Our present plant is like a worn out automobile?it needs newparts from the carburetor to the . tires. For several months we have collected an average of $2200 per month for lights and water. A new and modern plant can be installed I complete for $45,000. This will pro- j vide us with duplicate units 200 i horse power each or a peak load- of 400 horse power. This plant would probably be adequate for the town for the next fifteen years, provided we 1 maintain our present rate of growth, j It is estimated this plant can be op- j erated at a cost of $1000 per month : and our present income would enable i us to apply $1200 per month to pay on the original cost. In other; words the plant will pay for itself. within four years, provided we can- j "Ot sell more current and new motorB.' ler normal times the income from ^ (ci plant can be easily increased to , vjf of 0 per month. ** people think we are too poor , "to have a new plant. If we do not im- ! prove our public service equipment j Dillon is fully grown. It can be com-' * pared to a man at 75 years old. We . have passed through our best years to trade with our farmers. If we grow like towns in South Florida or like towns in New England, where no cotton has ever been raised, we need j new industries and an increased pop-' uiation.

J IVt OVUVVI pVBVU which was carried unanimously in . the Nichols school district broke all records, declared S. J. Wall, county superintendent of education, yesterday. The voting was 51 to 0 otv both issues and immediately after the election, a meeting was called to dis- i cuss plans for early building and operation on the new and enlarged scale. It is the hope of the people in the Nichols district that the school can bo finished in time for next session. The spirit exhibited at the election was of a most enthusiastic sort and the desire for better educational conditions in the district was most pro- 1 nounced. Never before in the history of the county, it is said, has such an election been carried without a single dissenting vote. During the past six years every , district in Marion county, with the exception of one, has voted bonds for 1 a modern school building and increased the levy for educational pur- ; poses. The single exception is accounted for by the fact that in this district already these steps had been taken. The levy previously in effect in I the Nichols school district was eight j mills. This was increased to 15 mills. o (hAIMEI) -TKL.K? PHONG INVENTION Man Who Clamed He Invented Tele phone Dies at Lanreni. | Laurens, Dec. 6?Thomas M.

MaJ. O. M. Page ia receiving the congratulations of his friends over the completion of a most difficult piece of engineering in the mountains near Stuart, Va. MaJ. Page was call-j ed to the work after six engineers' had failed to map out a road that was acceptable to the state and federal governments. The following from The Stuart (Va.) Enterprise will be of in- ! tcrest to Herald readers: It will probably be of interest to the Patrick County people to know something about the High way now under construction from the Corporate limits ofStuart eastward. The Engineer in charge of Project No. 65 representing the State of Va. is Major Otis M. Page, of S. C. Major \ Page is a Veteran of the World War, having commanded one of the largest I Engineer battallion ever authorisedj by the War Department. Major Page; has a long line of experience, is at member of the American Society of} Ciril Engineers. The assistant Engi-i neer is Mr. H. Hudley of W. Va. Mr. | Hundley is also a Veteran of the late j war and was a Lieutenant of Engl-, neers. Major Page states that the work: is being rapidly pushed to comple- j tion. That the east end of the road i will be Top Soil. That he is making a' Dtudy relative to the surface of the Stuart end and will be able to make I a definite announlement in a few days. All work done is inspected by the State Engineers and has to come upj the letter of State and Federal and Government specifications. All contractors are under the supervision of the Engineers. This contract is held by Burgess and Atkerson of Scottsville, Va. The Engineering problems met with were numerous and complex but the location finally decided upon is said to be ideal from an Engineering standpoint, high supporting ground, light grades and no sharp curveture the entire length. These are very important features in a mountainous country. TLe Engineer is to be congratulated on this work. o MORSE ON HIS WAY BACK. Sails for United States on Steamship Paris. Havre, Dee. 5?The steamship Paris, having aboard Charles W. Morse, whose presence is desired in the United States by the Department of Justice at Washington, sailed at 10:30 o'clock tonight for New York. Prior to the departure of the vessel Mr. Morse reiterated that he had \ received no reply from Attorney General Daugherty to his request to be permitted to remain in Europe until. January to undergo medical treat-, ment. At the American consulate today it was said no reply had been received J tonight for Mr. Morse. "Come to meet me here sometime; in January," were Mr. Morse's part-j ing words to the correspondent of the! Associated Press. "I surely will be1 back if I'm still alive." Mr. Morse slipped aboard the steamer so quietly that many of the ship's officers were unaware of his presence until he became dissatisfied ' with the stateroom, which he was asked to share with another passen-1 ger, and went to the purser and requested that he be given another I rooirt. The purser said his request would be granted as soon as all the passengers had embarked, if there was a vacant stateroom available. o HA LBEBY-S AMAH A.

MM EXCURSION DC THOUGHT The Value of Literature fn Developing the Emotions. 1 I R. N. Allen of Latta, Chester Reporter : It is a rery commonplace fact : that practically every man and wo- 1 man and every boy and girl Is In love i at sometime during their respective i lives. All have alike been created so < that they fall under the universal I sway of that all-compelling power < sooner or later. No one would at any 1 time like to make the rather unfor- i tunate admission that he or she had < never at any time during their lives i been in love, dome people would pre- ' tend to be rather reluctant to admit < that tViov hat) av?r had anrh a com- 1 monplace experience. Yet to deny I having had such an experience it to 1 really make a self-admission that they . had not h*d the qualities that make ! them attractive to some one. It would ' be tantamount to an admission that j they were hopelessly mediocre, irre- < vccably commonplace, and without 1 that power necessary to win the regard of some n le. To have loved and ( lost is a far more endurable fate than to have never loved or been loved at all. And yet while all human beings ' are Bubject to the thrall of love, ' there are few who ever make it 1 their interest to study the vast literature that has built up around this extremely fascinating subject. Let ' some one advertise a lecture under 1 the title "How To Be Happy Tho 1 Married" and the last seat will be 1 taken and the "Standing Room Only" sign will be hung out. People are ] willing to take the word of some ' itinerant lecturer or Borne peripate- ; tic reformer upon this subject, but they never open their minds to the j1 vast treasurers of literature which j' deal with this subject. It is quite j. true that many people read and en- j V-y the finest love poetry but the re-I ero<fble fart is that those are a *" r.j] minority. ^ if r-~?n v-Uhci't saying that the ( lives of the great lovers of history , are the most inspiring of all bioggraphies. Once a preacher let me inspect a volume of a set of books in hie library entitled "Love Affairs of ; Great Men," and it proved to- be one | of the most fascinating of all the', books on biography that I have ev-1 er seen. No boy or girl could read ' those fascinating accounts without1 ' ( Miring tha? after all Love was: something to be taken seriously, j Never shall 1 forget the accounts of the love affairs of that great polit- j cai wizard of France. Gambetta. To j have browsed over the volume was i a privilege that I shall be very slow! in forgetting. It would enhance our appreciation of Dante's great poem "The Inferno" J if we were aware of the fact that it j m u q iltonla m atiii m nri f fr* V* 4 o W Cfr lliauiv, IUUUUUICIII IU AAAO . heart Beatrice. The magnificent works of Goethe would unfold their hidden beauties to us more readi-: ly if we knew through his biography j of his numerous love affairs. The most interesting book that one could read is one entitled "Love Letters of Great Men and Women," for therein ! we would havt revealed to us the deepest sentiments of the human j heart. To have unfolded to us the profoundest depths of human emotion could not but purify our spirits, ennoble our minds, and create within us a deeper and firmer resolve to love worthily and still more worthily should that experience fall to us. Sometime ago it was my exquisite' pleasure to translate from the French that delightful little memior of Renan's entitled "My Sister Henrietta." There is something remarkable about the love that Rennn'a of at or hnra far him At timoa it seemed to me that she loved her brother more than his wife was ever capable of. At any rate, she shall go down in history along with Mary Lamb as one of those sisters who devotedly loved a brother. Could every sweetheart love sweetheart as Henrietta lover her brother, could every husband and wife approximate the wonderful love that this devoted sister bore for her brother, the divorce mills would cease forever to grind. ' A great German critic has said that Elizabeth Barrett and Roert Browning were the most perfect lovers in the history of the world. Their beautiful love lasted until death. When Elizabeth Harrell realized that she loved Robert Browning with all the depth of her being, she composed those wonderful Sonnets in The Portugese. For some time she'did not even let Browning see them but when he did see them he pronounced them pure poetry. Time and criticism have verified the verdict of the rapturous lover. To drink in these sonnets can not but purify the fountains of mortal love, they cannot but sweeten the springs of happiness. 8omehow we feed and grow off of 'other human souls, be they good or bad. Th4t Elizabeth Barrett bared her soul to Robert Browning ought to make every lover in the world a better and truer lover. Just such is the purpose of the great and 'growing literature of love and exalted passion?to purify our too earthly loves, to sweeten the oorrpdlng add of selfishness lest it consume our souls, to teach us to love less selfishly and more unselMl -L ' 1 m WV H . -Brj ' H J J K .

These hogs came! rrom several points in the county and were sold to a Charleston concern, i which made a better offer than could I be had in Richmond, taking into ac- J count the difference In the freight! rates and the probable shrinkage From shipping. This car was assembled through the combined efforts of President Shaffer, of the C. P. A., and County Agent Klnsey. It was composed of hogs from seven farmers, and the average weight was 171 pounds.
