When the terrapin kulta woolen socks And the hare ls outrun by the snail. When serpents waik upright like men And bugs travel like frogs. When grasshoppers feed on the hen And feathers are found on the frog. When tomcats swim In the air And elephants roout In trees. When insects in the summer are there And snuff never makes people Hneeze. When fish creep over dry land * And mules on bicycles ride. When foxes lay eggs lu the sand. And women In dress take no pride. Wheu dutchmen no longer drink beer And girls go to church on time. When billy goats butt from the rear ^ And treason is no longer a crime. . When humming birds bray Uko asses And limburger smells like cologne When ploughshares are made of glass j Abd hearts of workmen are stone. When Ideas grow in Jackasses' heads And wool on the hydraulic ram, Then Elkdom will be dead j And the country won't he worth a damn. TE lt M "TIL KIP MYSTERY. I'MMI by F wry Lodge but Hardly Any One Knows Definition. The term "tiler" is one used in al most every sec-rot society, and yet, ask any secret society mun its meaning and he usually will have to plead Igno rance. The dictionary gives the word an origin In the word "tile," the cov ering of a house, am. the derived meaning ls to cover, or keep secret. Thus it applies to the outer guard, who stands at the outpost of secrecy of a lodge. o o o o o o o o o o o o o ? EEKS' GREETING* " o o o o "Hello.

Mill, there are lil" pieces of construction work on foot in the city now. More than in Greenville, Spar laubutg and Creen wood combined. Tell it to the world for us. Bill, that Anderson is on no boom, but is just coming into her own. 'Hie Interurbau in the last three years! has spent several hundred thousands of dollars here for termi nals.-. Look 'em over. The Blue Ridge and the Southern are putting in a bridge and a pas senger station Just fernlnst The In telligencer office, at a cost of $100. 000. Will be the nobbiest station in the whole state. Passengers may em bark and come right out of the sta tion to the sidewalk on Main street. The Charleston and Western Caro lina has bought some $175,000 worth of real estate, bas cleared off a lot of I old shacks, is doing a lot of grading and filling and will lani' freight and passengers right in front of the city hall. Anderson county produces 80,000 bales of cotton annually, and the value of the finished product of the American milln is $3.000,000 in excess of the raw cotton. Did you know that Bills? And yet Anderson probably produces more small grain ?jan any other county In the state. CANNON .. ..-EIGHT - _ Anderson has a live chamber of | commerce, which ls working hand in hand with the farmers and is en couraging them, in improving their homes and their farms. It is believed that this interest shown tin the. farm ers has tended to double the amount] of grain and leguminous crops plant ed In the county this year. -O Yes. Bill, this of course, if for you you will find that the churches have the largest congregations In the state here you will timi the best publl schools in the state with $100.000 spent in new buildings in the last year; here you will find Anderson college, reared by the game peopl of the game little city, representing an investment of a quarter of a million dollars; here you will find the most substantial merchants in the state, one Urra here doing a business of nearly a million dollars a year, and another doing a careful, conservative and suc cessful business; here you will find thc most hospitable homes, the warm est men and the most lovely women in the country. -o 'Yes, Bills, this ot course ls fr you and not for home consumption, and we mean every word of it and If you stay here long enough, you will find it out. Anderson is My Town, and we want some good Elk during this con vention to set that to music. It rounds sweet enough to the ears of the homefolk.'. without any score, but we would like to Bing it for the whole world to hear. AP LD LANG SYNE.

The small acorn planted by the founders, has spread to a gigantic oak, with those noble characteristics, Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love am; Fidelity, shedding radiance of relief fr o ni the 1400 strong and sturdy branches that have spread forth from .he parent root forming a golden chain that encirc'. 3 thc United States from Maine to thc Gulf bf Mexico and from '.he Atlantic to the Pacific coast. The milk of human kindness ls the nourishing element that gives life to thu body, and light to those basking under-its benign influence, writing the Taults of the unfortunates who fall by the way in the sands, white their vir tues are inscribed on the'tablets of love and grateful memory; monuments that rear high their heads toward beaven, inscribed with indelible char iot ers that neither time nor tide can sfface and will live until time shall be no more. The order was Christened by Charles Vivian, the actor, and the name of tbe in ?mal (Elk) used because it ls fleet nf foot, strong of limb, timorous of toing wrong and never known to en gage in combat, except to defend its young and to protect the weak and defenceless. A clearer conception of I the objects of the order, the pen fails to record. Thc impression exists with I many-some through ignorance. oth-| ers through narrowness of mind-that ! the body ie composed principally of a frivolous fun-loving set of men. For the uninformed we desire to say that a more mistaken idea never pre vailed. The principles of the order are such that men of every faith, no matter how radically opposed to each other, can approach our altar and clasp hands over our book of faith. True, a decided social feature exists, but it is secondary in the minds of the members and is indulged in to make our mystic band one of true brother iiood, where only good feeling exists, and not for the worldly or outside idea merely to enjoy tbe benefit of as sociation among those that feel it in cumbent upon themselves to extend re lief as unfortunately exists with many instit ut ions that arrogate to them selves ail virtues and no faults, that do all that must be done consistent witb straight-laced ideas, and who are sought but seldom seek. In the strict sense of the term, our order is a secret one, secret, however, as to the internal workings of the body in the lodge room and thc chatty dla rpensed. hut in no othe respect; our door? arc wide open at all times with Brotherly Love, the animating inf lu ence, glaringly greeting the stranger. -??teoeooec; " 000000000000 OOO OOOOOOOOOOOOO o -u?

The order is distinctly American, and applicants for membership are limited to white male citizens of the United States, of sound mind and body of good character, who must believe in .the existence of a Su preme Being. Some ot the purposes of the. order are to promote the welfare and en hance the happiness of Its members, to quicken tho spirit of American pat riotism ; to cultivate good fellowship, ?nd Inculcate the principles of char ity, justice, brotherly love and fidel ity. Lodges ot the order are not permitte?* to be instituted tn cities of less thr* five thousand Inbabtltants, yet. In spite of this restriction and the careful discrimination that ls used tn passing upon tho eligibility of candi dates, Elkdom during tho past few years has been blessed with a most remarkable growth, both- In the num ber of lodges and the membership of the Individual lodges, and' there' are DOW some 1400 lodges'affiliated with the grand lodge, South Carolina hav Ingeleven. Prom the beginning the order bas sought to link its destiny with that of oar country, .and has made the flag of our nation the symbol of Its crowning virtue-Fidelity Due perhaps to the fact that there are no lodges of the order In the smaller towns, Elkdom In years gone by has been subjected to unmerited and unjust criticism by provincial and narrowmlnded carpers. Tbe wonder ful growth of the order attests the fact that ita cardinal principles are a finn foundation to build upon, utterly false Impressions have been swept away as the real objects of the order have be come better known and men of na tional and state affairs, ministers who grace the pulpits of churches'all over this broad land and citizens of sterling integrity mingle In ' ob's common brotherhood and are banded together doing good. To use the words of my friend, Hon. C. Porter Johnson: "The genius of Elkdom rests upon the Integrity, vir tue, fidelity and Intelligence of its members.
