Upon bis return from Charlotte,
where be went on official business Mr,
H. A. Orr, manager of thc local hold
ings of the Southern Public Utilities
company, announced certain improve
ments that he had to bc made by the
company in local properties.
The reservoir in the northwestern
portion ol the city, which ls used for
the storing of water for Are purposes
and for emergencies that might cur
tail the regular supply of drinking
water, is to have a cement bottom and
sides. The reservior ls fed from the
titler plant on Cox's creek, and the
cementing pf the basin will preclude
any contamination of the water after
it has been'placed in this reservior.
The improvements will cost approxi
A similar sum will be spent by the
Southern Public Utlltics company in
constructing an additional filter plant,
which will bo placed alongside the
present plant. It will havo the same
capacity aa the present plant, that is
650,000 gallons per day. Mr. Orr stated
that the pejple of Anderson consume
about 650.000 gallons of water per day
now and that the capacity of Ute pres.
ont plant, which 1B G50.000 gallons,
doea not give enough margin be
tween aupply and demand. The new
plant will be const meted of concrete.
Mr. Orr announced also that the
Equinox Mill had conrtacted with his
company for the Installation of addi
tional transformer equipment, on ac
count of the nature of goods now be
ing manufactured calling for more
power than it it was thought would
be needed at first. The horsepower
will be increased from 260 to 500 by
the change. The transformer now In
use at the Equinox ia also used by the

new ene for the Equinox is installed

Franklin waa a great ri?arter and a
great student of science and especial
ly of electricity. He formed the
theory that lightning and the electri

some kind of a key attached to a
string and went out tn the storm to

Newspapers In the Schools.
" There is Borne discussion in Boston
of the question of adding newspaper
reading to the public school curricu
lum. In three notable articles pub
lished hy the Boston Globe the writers
all express the belief that newspapers
should be read/ in the achocls.
Prof.. D..L. Sharp of Boston Uni
versity, thinks (hat. newspapers can
not bo kept:'.a,way"from live children
and ought to be. Much of the read
ing that is done, be says, is vicious,
much of it merely wasted'time, and
little of lt ia orderly, thoughtful or
?truly informing, "but it !e.m.pro. wb-Qlo
some than lack of intereaff or <cn 'xr
ance.". . r,
William T. Miller, a teacher In .tho
BoBton schools, has no doubt as to thc
educational value of the newspapers.
He suggests that a beneficial plan for
their use In the schools would be to act
.the pupils to clipping items and pic
tures on definite topics. In this way
the work could be correlated with
many subjects of the curriculum. "By
assigning a topic, such as the progress
of a bit of legislation, an ordinary
class wi'.l bring In largo numbers of
pertinent clippings. The reading of
these furnishes excellent oral practico
and at the same time supplies infor
mation on the topic assigned."
Nathaniel C. Fowler, Jr.. says he
would desire every boy and girl be
yond th?> primer age to read daily a
good <>evfSpaper, under the direction
of parent \r teacher, or both. Mr.
Fowler weald make newspaper read
ing "a pari of the curriculum of ev
ery school above the lower grades."
The Intelligent, reading of the news
paper, he adds, ls absolutely essen
tial to education. .
Newspaper reading undoubtedly to
educative. As a factor for public en
lightment it is second only to the
schools. Tho newspaper, of course, ls
not perfect,'and there are many dif
ferent kinda ot newspapers, some of
them hardly to be recommended tor
reading In school or elteivbero. But
most papers strive for acr/ura?y. None
of thom IS perfect, but many, bf them
are making progresa . It is doubtless
possible t? make use of theffi fe/ ad
vantage in school work, but whether
they are put in the curriculum or not
tho wideawake school children will
read them and will profit thereby.
