The old theory used to he that
buzzards were scavengers, and should
be protected. Recent investigations
have prone to prove that the buzzard is
a source of danger; that he spreads
disease, and, therefore should he destroyed.
The recent legislature
clianpred the law forhiddinjr the killing
of buzzards, and it is now lepral
to kill them. The fact is, every buzzard
should he killed. It has been
demonstrated that hop: cholera has
been transmitted tlirouprh the buzzard
more than in any other way.
Here's where ole b'rer buzzard meets
his finish. He must pro and pro because
lie is a nuisance.
Jas. L. Carbery, secretary of the
Chamber of Commerce, has already
launched a campaign for war prardens.
This is a great move, and will result
in great benefit to the people of
Union county. The good feature
about this practical movement is that
Mr. Carbery is qualified to give exact
and valuable instructions in this matter
of gardening. He is an expert in
this line, and his knowledge is extensive
and his advice is sure and
safe. If you have a piece of ground
that you will not yourself cultivate
this season, will you not get in communication
with Mr. Carbery and allow
him to take it into his movement
If you expect to garden yourself and
are in need of expert advice, you will
find Mr. Carbery willing to render
you any service in his power.
We feel no small degree of satisfaction

Senator Tillman !|
Will Run Again !
Will Not Make Campaign, But Will j
Address Voters of State S
Senator Tillman is going to offer
for re-election to the United States
senate anil he does not intend to
make the campaign throughout
South Carolina this summer, according
to a party of Andersonians j
who were in Washington a few days
atro on business, and who dropped
in the senator's office to speak to
him before tbey left the capital. <
The first matter mentioned by
the senator to his Anderson visitors
was the exchanpe of letters between
Former Senator John L. McLaurin
and certain members of the
Anderson county legislative delepation.
Senator I McLaurin's last
letter had just appeared in the
South Carolina newspapers.
Asked if he was poinp to make
reply to Senator McLaurin's references
to him in his first letter Senator
Tillman leaned back in his
desk chair, and said that he was not
poinp to make reply; that he was
poinp to treat Senator McTJaurin
"with silent contempt, which he deserves."
Senator Tillman declared that he
is poinp to offer for re-election and
added that because of his lonp experience
and especially under conditions
existinp at present, he believes
he is better fitted to serve
the people of South Carolina in the
senate than any other. Tie said that
he intends to address the voters of
the state throuph the newspapers,
and that he intends to stay on the
job in Washinpton where he is needed
all the time.
Senator Tillman is chairman of
the naval committee of the senate
and he is one of the busiest men in
Washinpton today. When the Andersonians
called on him he had a
preat mass of correspondence before
him on his desk, and a number
of clerks and stenopraphefrs
were hard at work keeDinc un with
The senator appeared to be in
pood health, so the Andersonians
say, although it could be seen that
ithe sternuous session of congress
and his heavy work in his office had
fatigued him to some extent.
In addition to keeping up w\th
his work in Washington Senator
Tillman is keeping in close touch
with political conditions in South 1
Carolina. He is informed on all
political moves made recently, and
seems to be enjoying most of
"The people can reelect me or <
not. T am going to give them an
opportunity of expresing themselves
at the pools, and if the people
of South Carolina don't want
me as their representative here,
then I will be content to remain at
home^ My persoal wish Ss to
stay at home anyhow; T don't want
to offer for re-election." said the
senator in summing up his position
with regards to the coming cam- (
