Home of our contemporaries who have been kind enough to mention the recent change in the manago mnt of Anderson college have con gratulated uh upon getting the serv ices of n man like Mr. W. II. Hand for its head. Wo agree with these gntlemen. It is indeed fortunate cir cumstance that Anderson college has secured his services. He is a man who lias u State-wide reputation, and it is a reputation of which to be proud, a reputation for bigness, broadness and progressiveness. Hut we wish to Hay, as being im personally interested in the collego that Mr. Hand ts making no mistake He 1b taking his chances, in a way. Hut Anderson college is one of tin best equipped institutions In the State, although it is now, and prac tically unknown away from here, and we feel that Mr. Hand will not only add to the organization that element which will bring to it success in the highest degree, hut he will also add to his own stature, inieiicctuaiiy ami professionally. He will find the in stitution well prepared for his com ing. Dr. Vines has been a capable and unselfish head of the institution, and the details of the management have been handled in a most skillful way by the vice-president. Prof. C. M. Palthfull, whom the entire board of trustera regard as a treasure. CHILD BADLY BCRNED Little Lad May Die At. Result of Injuries William 'Martin, the little two-year old ?on of Mr, und -Sirs. L. L.

Sketch of Spring - Chick Springs haa been kuown sine" the days when the Indians were masters of this coiVtryf the white settlers learned of it through the In dians, who were wont to encamp about the watering place, and prob ably the Indian* learned of it from the animals, for formerly It was a famous place for deer and other game. The spring was once known ns Lick Spring. loiter it was called j Healing STpriiig. by the early settlers, and finally was named Chick Springs after the property was purchased by a Dr. Chick .who built the first hotel there In IRlB; The?nrw hotel will start on the site of the original hotel. W orkJhv with All Expedition. fWork Is now being pushed op the new hotel and on the grounds with all reasonable expedition. The con tractors, Jamison and Norrls. of Greenvlle. have agreed to have the new plant ready foiousc by the early part of June. How Will This Do for a Quar ter of a Century ?
