J. P. MORGAN CO.

P. Morgan Says the Action Was Taken Because of the Apparent Change In Public Sentiment. ----------o---------- (By The Associated Press.)

New York, Jan. 2—J. P. Morgan Company today announced that they had [several?] their connection with some of the country's greatest corporations with which they have long been connected. This step, it was announced, was taken voluntarily in response to an apparent [chance?] in public sentiment on account of some of the problems and criticisms relating to so called interlocking directorates.

Among the companies from which they have retired are the New York Central and New Haven railroads.

J. P. Morgan made a statement saying the necessity of attending many board meetings had been a serious burden and the company has long desired withdrawing from many directorates of companies. He said the apparent change in public sentiment seems to warrant the company's action in resigning from some directorates.

He declared it possible the Morgan company might actually be in better position to serve properties and security holders if not directors.

He expects from time to time to withdraw from other boards upon which the company doesn't feel under obligation to remain. ----------o---------- News in Washington. (By The Associated Press.)

Washington, Jan. 2—Administration officials have known for some time that there was a movement to separate the Morgan company from some of its larger directorates and to get in line with the peoples wishes and the spirit of the times, as set forth by President Wilson. The news highly gratified cabinet circles. In the president's [announce?] it wasn't known whether he knew of the prospective movement. ----------o---------- Wilson Gets News. (By The Associated Press.)

Gulf Port, Miss., Jan. 2—President Wilson had just completed a game of gold here when an associated press dispatch announcing the withdrawal of the Morgan company from many important directorates was read to him. He listened attentively and said "that's interesting." Nothing else was said. It is known the president has long been working on his message dealing with the trusts, and interlocking directorates. He expects congress to enact legislation this session. ------------------------o------------------------- COMMISSION GOVERNMENT IN LETHERBRIDGE, ATLA. ----------o---------- Special to the Daily Piedmont.

Marin, Texas, Jan. 2—General Ortega's constitutionalists, six thousand strong, approached close to Ojinaga early this morning. Apparently the federals can't hold out much longer and avoid a precipitate retreat across the Texas border.

The last word from Major Mcnamee, commmanding the border patrol at Presidio, was that the federal desertions had slackened. The federals had received some back pay, he said and this had discouraged further desertions. Major McNamee has the situation in hand in preparing for the expected flight across the Rio Grande.

The danger of federals drawing the rebel fire closer to the boarder in the case of flight was considered but Ortega has promised that the fire will be directed away from this river.

Villa has sent more ammunition from Chihuahua to replish the rebel supply at Ojinaga. The federal garrison can't renew its supplies.

The federal wounded have been removed to Mission church at Presidio by the Red Cross. The federal commander has asked permission to remove the wounded to Ciudad [Porfirio?] Diaz, Mexico, opposite Eagle Pass. The request was refused by Major McNamee. ------------------------o------------------------- LAURENS DIVIDEND AMOUNT TO $28,396. ----------o---------- Past Year Has Been One of Great Prosperity in Laurens County—Encouraging Progress Has Been Made. ----------o---------- Laurens, [S.

The Laurens Trust company, 4 per cent on $47,400; $1,896.

The Laurens cotton mills, 3 per cent on $350,000; 10,500.

In many respects the year just closed has been one of great prosperity in the county of Laurens. The cotton crop has yielded something like three-quarters of a million dollars more than was realized for the crop of 1912; the corn and forage crops have sown a large acerage in grain and other cover crops than ever before. In the building line of improvements and, taking the county and the towns as a whole, the progress that has marked the old year is most encouraging. ------------------------o------------------------- CANADIAN STEEL TRUST PAYS QUARTERLY DIVIDENDS. ----------o---------- Montreal, Jan. 2—The regular quarterly dividend at the rate of four per cent was distributed by the Dominion Steel corporation today.

How Many of You Readers Actuallyn Think For Yourselves? By J. R. HAMILTON

Former Advertising [M? blotted] Wanamaker's Philadelphia (Copyrighted)

HOW MANY of you are able ABSOLUTELELY to cast off all OUTSIDE INFLUENCES and bring your own mind fully to bear on any subject at hand?

Take, for example, the question of buying an automobile—which is not so remote a possibility for the most of us as it used to be.

What influences would the most of us naturally obey in buying a car?

First of all, of course, comes the influence of our friend's car. If we like our friend we like his car And the chances are, we'll buy the same make. It's a case of "love me, love my dog."

And that's the poorest kind of thinking in the world. For my dog may be a far better or worse dog than I am. And your friend's car may be an awful aggregation of junk. Or it may be the best on the market. But remember, you are buying the car and not the friend.

Next will come the influence of "general impression." And that is almost as bad. General Public impressions are what have held the world back a thousand years. They are the rear-guard of progress, always. They are always being outstripped by the newer, better thing and they know it.

And last, comes the influence of 'popularity.' And this is another bugaboo. Popularity has no more to do with quality in a machine than hair oil has to do with a soft complexion.

Now advertisers today are rapidly learning all these things to their joy and to their sorrow. And today you will find a different kind of automobile advertising and a different type of automobile tire and automobile accessory advertising than you used to see.

And all this different kind of advertising is based upoon the assumption that you are going to think for yourself.

In other words, the "hot air" has gone out of automobile advertising. And these advertisers no long even trust to the influence of your friends nor to the popularity of their name.

They are giving us FACTS in the advertising today. They are telling us how their cars are made and giving us genuine reasons why we should buy them.

And the result is that you can no more buy the right automobile now without reading and weighing and thinking over the advertising, than you could pass an examination in quadratic equations without studying algebra.

If you are going to buy a new car, you have go to bring your CONSCIOUS ATTENTION to the study of that car's advertising and form your decision from the best judgment you can bring to bear; or you will regret it every time you take the wheel.

NEW LICENSE LAW IN ANDERSON IS CAUSE CHANGES ----------o---------- CERTAIN LINES BUSINESS DICONTINUED FIRST OF NEW YEAR ----------o---------- MANY LUNCH STANDS OF CITY OUT OF BUSINESS ----------o---------- Licenses For Lunch Stands, Carnivals, Peddlers, Medicine Dealers, Etc., is Prohibitive—Every Carnival That Comes to the City in the Future Will Have to Pay a License of $500—Country People are Allowed to Sell Farm Produce in City. ----------o---------- Special to The Daily Piedmont

Anderson, Jan. 2—Many lunch stands in the city are not doing business today. The cause is the new license bill which prohibits them doing business, except under a very high license. A license of [$500?] a year has been imposed on lunch stands, and there are very few willing to pay this license and continue his business. Two or three, however, are paying the license by the day and are going to continue to do so until the council meets.

Not only lunch stands, but many other forms of business died with the old year. Among these were the peddlers of medicine and and all sorts of merchandise except country produce. The country people are allowed to sell farm produce in the city, but peddlers and [??] of all kinds are not allowed to impose their stock upon the people. If the housewife will notify the city authorities when interrupted by a peddler, it will be appreciated, and cases will be brought.

Carnivals are not excluded from the city, but will come here under a license of $500. Carnivals do not encourage the business that are unprofitable to the community, as viewed by the council, and because of this position the license fee to be increased; in fact, made prohibitory.

Ridding the city of those businesses which have been regarded as undesirable has been brought about by means of increase in the amounts of license fees formerly charged that make them prohibitory, but, of course, if there came along the representative of one of these who believes he can make good, even in spite of the increase, he can pay over the amount as provided and take a shot at it.

Council's action in making the changes as referred to has met with general approval on the part of the people of the city. The business affected had come to be nuisances in a manner, at least, and the change now made, calling a halt, is generally appreciated. --------------------o-------------------- WIFE GOES IN HAT BOX AND GET SUM OF $75 ----------o---------- New York, Jan. 2—A hat box is not a safe place to put money, in the opinion of Ralph Thompson, former coxswain of the Yale cew.

COLONEL HUMPHREYS WILL NOT SUE GALLOWAY SYSTEM ----------o---------- Editor Daily Piedmont:

I have been reading a good deal about first one and then another prosecuting railroads about freight rates or charges, etc., and I consulted Junias Martin, he's our magistrate about suing the Galloway system for alimony as the judge says that's all I can get.

It's this way my friend Alf Mo, the best rabbit ketcher from Hogskin sent me a rabbit. He shipped it over the Galloway system and I had to pay 10 cents freight, which is the cost of a rabbit, beside this rabbit had [one?] leg broke in transit, Junius says if I sue the road they'll git a writ of mandamus and I told Junius that ther wasn't but one man on that road big enough ter try that

Special to The Daily Piedmont

New York, Jan. 2—The new year always ushers in a flood of novelties for the well dressed woman. First in the advance guard of the new things comes the silks, muslins, etc., which are to be developed into spring and summer costumes a few months hence. Closely upon these follow the new design in frocks and waists, which are not to be so very different from the modes that have reigned for the past few months. If all that is whispered is true.

It is certain that there are not to be very decided changes. Women, of fashion are exceedingly fond of the narrow skirts and draped effects an as long as they are pleased the makers of fashion will not rush into violent changes. Then too, although frocks are simpler in outline in many instances and requires less material, the fabrics are more elegant so that it costs as much to dress as ever. This is pleasing of course, to the manufacturers who have complained bitterly of the effect the new styles have had upon their business.

Thus far the checked taffetas, like the checked woolens, are being demanded in colors, rather than in the black and white. Green and white is a delightful spring combination, but it is not more popular than yeallow and black, or green and blue, or again, pearl and green. The checked goods are invariably combined with plain material; in costumes, one forms the skirt and the other the tunic and blouse.

Though one naturally thinks of velvet as a winter material, it is expected to be worn quite as extensively this spring as during the win-

[column 5, first article]

ter; the plain and fancy velvets share the interest. for spring velvet will be combined very often with tulle or net.

Another novelty of the present season is the smart little waiscoat, cut like a man's evening vest, of pale tan suede. These waistcoats are fastened with jewelled buttons and they are immensely chic when worn in conjunction with long mousquetaire gloves of exactly the same shade of tan.

Tulle blouse in the various tan shades are also very much worn with tailored suite of navy serge. The revival of pale tan, shades is probably the result of the present rage for fitch or putois. This fur has completely captivated the Parisienne's fancy and in its natural color it is used as a trimming of all sorts and conditions of garments. Dyed putois is not really fashionable this winter. The furriers insist that they [ran tint?] it is the "true sable color," but this statement must be taken with more than a grain of salt. An expert can always detect dyed pitch at the first glance, and really this fur is charming in its natural state.

For velvet and silk beaver [toques?] the the two new shades are grape black and dahlia black. These two lovely tints are not really black at all, but they are so dark and rich looking that they seem black in a strong light. Another new color is Etruscan green. This is a very peculiar shade. It is dull green which looks as though it has been dipped in alloy water. It is dull but at the same time metallic and the Parisian milliners are using it freely in minor velvet and brocade for the crowns of for bordered toques.

London, Jan. 2—A voluntary committee of prominent Londoners has been investigating conditions in the city for the purpose of improving the living system of people in the poorer districts, and it is reported that as a result of this inquiry a big campagin will soon be started for the purpose of raising a fund to relieve some of the suffering now existing in the slums. There is an unusual number of unemployed this season, and as this is the time of year when work is easiest to find, grave fears are felt for many of the sufferers while business takes a further falling off in a few months hence. Several prominent society women are working in conjunction with the men investigators, and in many instances have given [special?] relief to the worst cases discovered. ----------o---------- The English friends of Queen Victoria are much alarmed over the report that King Alfonso has developed tuberculosis. It will be remembered that Alfonso's father died of the same disease at the age of 28. The present king was born a few months afterward and it is believed that he inherited tuberculosis from his father.

The root of afliction, it is said, lies at the top of the nose and a grave operation is considered absolutely necessary, although King Alfonso never looked better than he does at present. ----------o---------- There is a scheme on foot to utilize for profit of the community the things that London pays contractors to take away. It is proposed to remove all waste to land which is at present unproductive. In 1910 the amount of waste collected and disposed of by the various Borough counsels of London amounted to over 950,635 tons. At the present day it is probably not far short of a million tons. Vast sums of public money are spent to get rid of it. The amount is estimated at some $700,000 a year. ----------o---------- In Berlin the new law for the insurance of domestic servants has

[column 5, second article]

has been brought to a head by some rather amusing events in the suburb of Wienersdorf, where elections for representatives on the district insurance board recently took place. Prof. [Liedig?], a former councillor of state, who was proposed by the [p?] toral committee, was not elected. On the other hand, his housemaid was elected. This absurd anti-climax has been too much for Berlin householders and they want the law repealed. ----------o---------- The minds of the entire theatrical and operatic world of Germany are centered on the productions of "Parsifal" this month. More than forty opera houses owned by the state of municipalities in Germany, with ten in Austria, not to mention Madrid, London and other cities, have begun rebuilding for the production next week, as the copyright on the faous opera has expired. The performance at the Deutsche Opera at Charlottenburg tonight will be the first performance in Germany outside of Bayreuth. The house is already sold out for the first four performances. ----------o---------- In Paris, futurist musicians, jealous of the laurels won by the futurist [artilerist?], have formed an orchestra with which they intend to give a futurist concert in the theatre des Cahmps Elysees soon. Their orchestra is composed as follows:

Six buzzers, six whistlers, two mashers, four bursters, one screecher, one thunderer, two gurglers, ten snotters. The program for the first concert will include two suites reproducing the sounds of crashes between automobiles and aeroplanes. --------------------o-------------------- RAISE FOR 3,800 MEN.

Another effort is made to oust Chief of Police Beavers of Atlanta, Ga., if dispatches sent out from that city are correct. The reason this time is the same as that which prompted other efforts to remove him, he has been too firm in the enforcement of the law. The reason is the same as that which has prompted fights on chiefs of police in other towns and cities all over the county.

The enemies of strict law enforcement never sleep. You can beat them down in one place and they will arise a few weeks later in another. You can crush them down in one form and a few weeks later they will arise in another form. They are always on the alert.

Chief Beavers of Atlanta has made a national reputation by his enforcement of the laws. He has driven [out?] Atlanta's segregated district and has improved other conditions very greatly. Aided by the Men and Religion Forward Movement committee he has done much towards eliminating vice from Atlanta.

The vice crusade in Atlanta was started through the publication in the papers of that city of "bulletins" by the Men and Religion Forward Movement committee depicting conditions as they were in Atlanta. The people were aroused by these publications and demanding a general cleaning out of the city. They found Chief Beavers the man to do the job.

Those people who do not [now?] believe in a closed town and who never have believed in it have thrown every obstacle in the paths of those who have sought to improve conditions. Effort after effort has been made to remove Chief Beavers but all have met with failure.

The latest effort is being made by so-called prominent men of the city who claim that the continued agitation has hurt the city. Colonel F. J. Parson, who, according to the enemies of the vice crusade, is well known for his religious work, was the first to give voice to an opinion that the "bulletins" ought to be continued. Then Mr. Forrest Adair, a real estate dealer, rushed into the limelight with a lengthy interview endorsing Mr. Parson's stand. Other alleged prominent businessmen have taken the same stand.

But where do the preachers stand? And where do men like J. K. Orr, the shoe man who is known everywhere as a man of great principle, Wilmer L. Moore, president of the Chamber of Commerce, S. J. Eagan and others stand? They stand with the advocates of the crusade against vice of course. They declare that the crusade has done much to cleanse Atlanta and that it should be continued. The old gag that it is [harming?] the town doesn't [catch?] them.

The suggestion that the crusade against vice has hurt Atlanta appears to us to be about the most nonsensical one that could have been offered by the enemies of the crusade. How has it hurt the town? Do you think a good citizen would refuse to move to Atlanta because there is a crusade against vice going on there? It seems to us that that is the place he would want to go to. Do you think a good citizen would move from Atlanta because of the crusade against vice? It doesn't seem to us that he would. The people who profit by vice may be kept away and may be made to move away by the crusade but their going away or refusal to move there would be a blessing for the town instead of a hindrance.

Here is hope that Chief Beaver will win out in this fight as he has won out in his other fights. We are surprised that men like Adair and Parson should be in any way what every connected with a movement to restrain the fight on vice. --------------------o-------------------- THE LIGHT BILL.

The electric light company in Nashville, Tenn., has an ad in a Nashville paper that proved very interesting to us. It was headed "The Ups and Downs Of A Light Bill." A table was then presented showing the effect of the seasons on your electric bill. The ad says that from 6 a. m. to 10 p. m. may be considered the "active period" of each day. There are [480?] hours of "activity" during a 30-day month and 196 hours of "activity" during a holiday month.

The ad then gives the number of dark hours in the "restive period" of each month. The number of dark hours in the active period of between 6 a. m. and 10 p. m. in the month of January is [169?]. The number of dark hours in February is 137; the number in March 133; April 106; May 90; June 68; July 52; August 94; September 119; October [cut off]

hours during the active period (6 a. m. to 10 p. m.) and should be lightest during the month of June which has only 60 dark hours during the active period. In June it is daylight until about 8 p. m., while in December it gets dark a little after 4 o'clock and in January a little after 5. Another reason why electric light bills are heavier in winter is that very often families sit out on the porches in the summer until bed time without a single light burning. This is, of course, impossible in the winter. --------------------o-------------------- CONSIDER THE SOUTH.

The last issue of the Southern Field, the magazine issued by the land and industrial department of the Southern railway, was an especially interesting one to us. It contained a single article on "Farm Life of Today in the Piedmont Section of South Carolina," which was really a write-up of the Greenville county. This article was illustrated by the pictures of the magnificent [? illegible] homes of Messrs. John D. Harris, W. M. Stephens, Thomas Charles, J. A. Darby and F. D. Hunter. The article gave a number of interesting facts about the growth and progress of Greenville county.

The issue also contained a splendid editorial headed "Consider The South" which follows:

"The South is the world's great cotton field.

"It is a great corn producing region.

"It has the climate, the lands and the forage crops for great live stock and dairy industries.

"It is the nation's early vegetable garden.

"It is one of the country's best orchard districts.

"It has a great variety of forest trees and over one-third of the standing timber in the country.

"It has soils adapted to all kinds of farm products.

"It has rich mineral deposits of a wide variety.

"It has incomperable climate and its healthfulness cannot be disputed.

"It has the most attractive winter, summer and all the year-round resort cities and sections on coast and in the mountains, where the climatic, scenic and other advantages and attractions are combined.

"It has a great line of deep sea coast and many splendid harbors and shipping ports.

"It is developing the most prosperous and successful manufacturing centers, making a wide line of articles for home and outside consumption.

"Its water powers, developed and undeveloped, comprise a very large portion of the available water power of the United States.

"Its cities and towns have been [modernized?] and among them are great centers of industry, commerce and education, and all are growing rapidly.

"Its railroads give it splendid transportation facilities locally and to all parts of the country. Its steamer lines go to all Atlantic coast ports and to nearly all the [? illegible] nations of Europe and South America.

" The South is the front yard of the nation when it comes to our relations with Latin America and the use of the Panama canal." --------------------o-------------------- THE REAL EVIL.

The governor of the state in giving his reasons for pardoning Joe Bates, the Spartanburg man who murdered a woman and who was sentenced to be electrocuted for his crime, states that the petition for pardon was signed by a large number of Spartanburg people and he names some of them. We are frank to say that the names that were signed to the petition entitled it to careful consideration if not a favorable answer.

We cannot feel, however, that the average man signs a petition for pardon without first giving consideration to the case or certainly without making a very careful study of it. The petition was probably brought to him by a friend and he takes the friend's word for it that the case is a worthy one.

Our people should be more careful about signing petitions for pardons. --------------------o-------------------- THE MEANEST MAN.

THE SEISMOGRAPH By GEORGE FITCH, Author of "At Good Old Siwash". Copyrighted by George Mathew Adams

THE seismograph is an ingenious instrument by which an earthquake is enabled to register like a travelling man, whenever it is on the road.

This instrument is very complicated, and is so intelligent that the slightest shudder of the earth's surface is recorded. If a powder mill has exploded or a heavy [? illegible] has fallen violently during the night the owner of the seismograph would know it in the morning by looking at the record. It is said that when exPresident Taft attempted to reduce the tariff, seismographs recorded the result all over the world.

Sometimes an earthquake will travel for thousands of miles without disturbing the lightest sleepers. But the seismograph is on the job and in the morning, after the papers have announced its findings, thousands of citizens remember that during the night the bric-a-brac on the mantel tinkled loudly and the bed swayed like a ship in a heavy sea.

The seismograph is very valuable to scientists, but it would be more valuable to humanity if it could announce the presence of an earthquake before instead of after said quake was performed. The seismograph gives a man warning after a brick house has fallen on him and when he doesn't need it. It is as dilatory as an election result. Many

A Greenwood county man now living North who is at home for the holidays has been telling this on South Carolinians away from home. It is: That recently in the smoking compartment of a pullman of a train somewhere East, a party of four men were whiling away the time. Presently one of the party remarked that he was from Ohio, the greatest state in the Union. Man on his right at once took it up and said that while it was a great state in size and some other things it was a pigmy with what New York, his state, was in resources, etc., etc. Third man admitted claims of both as to many things but said his native state, Virginia, was the greatest of them all and set out to prove it. Meanwhile fourth man began reading. Not joining in, the other three began to ask him where he was from and received no answer. As he had been cheerful, jovial and companionable before they began to kid him a little and insisted in knowing where he was from. Finally, he reached his hand in his pocked and pulled out a pistol and said, "I am from South Carolina, and I'll shoot the first man who laughs." ----------o---------- Protecting Property Anderson Mail.

ALLEGED FALSE PROSECUTION AND SUES FOR $5,000 ----------o---------- J. Toy Biggers, Who Was Arrested Sunday on a Warrant Sworn Out by Joseph Hamoui Charging Him With the Theft of a check, Has Now Instituted Criminal and Civil Action Against Hamoui's Alleging Wilful and Malicious Prosecution. ----------o---------- Alleging that he was humiliated and insulted by wilful and malicious prosecution, J. Toy Biggers has instituted civil and criminal action against Joseph Hamoui, who upon information and belief accused Biggers of the theft of a check and had him arrested in Greenville last Sunday. This action was taken by Toy Biggers through counsel, after he had demanded a preliminary hearing and Hamoui had withdrawn the warrant. Biggers, by his duly appointed guardian ad litem, J. H. Biggers, has now entered suit against Hamoui for $5,000 damages.

Attorneys Townes, Earle and Price have been retained by plaintiff. Biggers.

In complaining of defendent Hamoui, Biggers alleges that on December 29th, 1913, the defendent did institute a wilful and malicious prosecution against plaintiff, and on said day, which was Sunday, defendant went before Magistrate Stradley and made the following affidavit in order to procure a waraant for plaintiff's arrest:

"Personally comes before me the defendant and makes oath in this state and county and in the township of Greenville on the 29th's day of December, 1913, Toy Biggers did take, steal and carry away a letter containing a bank draft or bill of exchange of the value of five hundred dollars or more by registered letter, all of which is contrary to the form of the statutes made and provided and against the peace and dignity of the state, and that George [Al?] and deponent are witness for the state.

(Signed) Joseph Hamoui.

Sworn to before me this 29th day of December, 1913. Samuel Stradley, (L. S.) Magistrate"

Biggers alleges that in pursuance of said warrant, he was arrested Sunday about 12 o'clock, noon, and was first placed in the city station house, where he was locked in a cell, and subjected to humiliation of being pressed for a confession by the police authorities; that later he was taken in charge by Sheriff Hendrix [Ree?] and about 2:30 p. m. was locked in the county jail, where he was [blurry] to remain that night, being unable to get bail on Sunday. That about noon on Monday he was released on bail in the sum of $200. That thereafter he demanded a preliminary hearing, and the defendent well knowing that he did have the slightest foundation for said prosecution and knowing that he could not sustain the charges, withdrew the warrant.

Hamoui is a Syrian and resides in Statesville, N. C. Biggers is a Greenville boy, and formerly worked in the ticket office of the Southern Railway depot on West Washington street. --------------------o-------------------- LOVE SICK SOLDIERS WANT TAR HEEL WIVES ----------o---------- Write Mayor of Greensboro, N. C., to Help Them Find Helpmates — Newspaper Advertises for Them. ----------o---------- Greensboro, N. C., Jan. 2—Rehearsing a [t]ragic story of shattered dreams and of love unrequited and at the same time declaring that their object is matrimony and urging the girls old maids and widows of Greensboro to sit up and take notice, William Guthrie, Harry Dory and Luther Lewis, three soldiers of the United States army stationed at Los Cascades in the Panama Canal Zone sent a joint letter to Mayor Thomas J. Murphy of this city, which he has just received, urging him to aid them in their quest for wives.

The letter which was written by Guthrie and signed by all three of the troopers, states that by tossing up coins they hit upon Greensboro and being the city in which to secure wives, and the letter to the mayor here followed. The three men, it appears, joined the army several years ago with the idea of acquiring wealth and fame within a few years and then returning to claim the girls of their choice as wives. After spending several years in the army, the letter states, they returned home only to find their respective sweethearts married. Disconcerted at the ruthless way in which love's young dream had been shattered, they took an oath that they would return to the army and die bachelors, according to the letter.

From the letter sent to Mayor Murphy, however, it appears that the troopers have changed their minds again and have determined to forsake the bachelor life and enjoy the doubtful blessing of married life.

A local newspaper is carrying an advertisement under the caption "Wives Wanted," but so far as can be learned no one has answered it as yet. Each of the soldiers belong to different regiments, but all of them are stationed at Los Cascedas, Panama Canal Zone. About two weeks time is required to receive a letter from that place.

As soon as some agreement can be reached as to what the verdict was, it is possible that an appeal may be made to the circuit court, or the case may be settled without an appeal.

proceeding year. The total production was 186,353,388.18 gallons.

Last year was the busiest year for the United States internal revenue tax. The total receipts of the bureau of internal revenue amounted to $344,424,453.86, an increase of $22,808,559.16 over the preceding year, and more than $18,000,000 in excess of estimated revenue.

High-water mark, up to that time, was reached in the total collections for the year 1901, when the added war tax brought the total from income tax impost up to $306,871,669. 42. The revenues fell off thirty-five million dollars the next year, and forty millions additional the following year, but since steadily advanceing until a new record was made in 1911, with a collection of $322,626, 889.73. A falling off of a million in collections was shown in 1912, followed by the phenomenal year of 1913, just closed.

Increase in General.

In almost every article of occupation taxed by the federal government under internal revenue laws there was an increase during the past year. All kinds of spirituous liquors showed an increased in revenues of $7,487, 864.77. The increase was nearly as large, $8,195,276.16 in tobaccos, of all [sorts of?] fermented liquors brought in $2,908,219.09 in excess of the record of the year previous. Oleomargarine showed a comparatively small increase of revenue, amounting to $131,280.12. Mixed flour and adulterated butter made little better showing than usual, and filled cheese and renovated butter did not do as well.

The corporation tax, bringing in $35,006,299.84, made a showing of $6,423,040.06 better than the fiscal year 1912. Penalties imposed for violations of laws were cut more than half, only $461,090.38 being collected.

The rest of collection was reduced from $17.14 per thousand dollars, or 1.71 per cent for 1912, to $15.94, or 1.50 per cent, for the fiscal year 1913.

And the increasing ratio of tax collection has not ceased. While the ration does not measure up to the increase in 1913 over the collections for the preceding year, yet already in the first four months of the present year the collections show an increase of nearly $4,000,000, or exactly $3,812,999.91. This is regarded by government experts as a positive indication of the present prosperous condition of the country.

Index of Prosperity.

Internal revenue collections, it is asserted, are the surest index of national and local financial conditions. There is no better weather vane of prosperity or depression, it is said.

Annually even monthly collections increase and decrease with the financial condition of the country. The tax is upon luxuries, and shows more instantly than any other medium the state of the popular pocketbook. --------------------o-------------------- SELLS INTEREST.

Nelle A. Kingsbury and Roscoe E. Munson, presenting their peculiar comedy creation "The Devil In Possession," made a decided hit in their initial performance at the Majestic theatre yesterday. The construction of the play is unusually novel and met with great favor last evening owing to the new treatment of theme. "Miss Kingsbury, the author of the piece has given herself ample opportunity to prove her sterling worth as a commedienne of some versatle weight. Her delineation of character types in this tabloid version is filled with smart [entre?] and amusing lines of thought.

Before witnessing the above episode, the audience is put in a joyful mood by Salvatore, who renders a number of beautiful selections on his harp. His auditors were so enthusiastic in their applause, that he was called to play an extra, which included a number of popular airs of the day.

Friday and Saturday the program remains unchanged, except for motion pictures, which are changed daily. ----------o---------- OFFICER 666."

That splendid melodromatic farce, "Officer 666," a play that has absorbed the attention and attracted crowded houses to the Gaiety Theatre in New York, and the Grand Opera House, Chicago, for the past year, will be presented for the first time in the city at the Grand next Monday, January 5th.

The story of "Officer 666" is all about a gentlemanly burglar who is a student of art as well. His particular hobby is old paintings. When the play opens he is found to be negotiating one of his famous coups and has chosen as his base of operations the home of Travers Gladwin, a rich New Yorker absent on a tour of the world. Returning unexpectedly, the young millionaire discovers that the picture expert has been masquerading as the owner of his home in upper Fifth Avenue, and is about to make his "getaway" with a particularly valuable lot of art objects as a part of his impediments. It is around these incidents that Augustin MacHugh has woven his play, which is said to be filled with dramatic surprises and clean fun that is particularly appealing to [cut off]

"Officer 666" is an original play and its success is all the more gratifying because of the fact that it is purely American from start to finish. ----------o---------- EDISON TALKING PICTURES. January 7th and 8th.

The Edison Talking Pictures will be publicly viewed and heard for the first time here at the Grand, January 7th and 8th, opening with matinee.

The chief astonishment of the Edison Talking Pictures is caused by the exact coincidence between the motion of the lips and those in the pictures and the spoken word, as it issues from the phonograph mechanism. Whatever may be the final service of the Kinetophone, the salient fact that its coming emphasizes, is that at last we have a scientific synchronization of sight and sound. The pictures and reproduction of records, are absolutely perfect in union. Mr. Edison's latest invention is truly wonderful. ----------o---------- "WITHIN THE LAW" January 12th

The American Play Co., producer of "Within the Law" announces that a production of Bayard Veiller's sensational drama will be made in all civilized countries of the world. The play seems to have the 'punch' necessary to make it a world-wide success and the story lends itself to adaptation. "Within the Law" will be seen in this city on January 12th. ----------o---------- "AT THE BIJOU".

"The Express Car Mystery," is the title of a two-reel motion picture produced by the [Kalem?] company which will be shown on the screen at the Bijou theatre Saturday afternoon and night. As the title indicates, the story is a very strong dramatic production and is full of thrills and experiences. Another strong dramatic photo-play to be presented on the screen at the Bijou Saturday is "The Doctor's Secret," which is portrayed by some of the leading players of the Vitagraph company. "The Schoolman's Shooting Match," is the title of another picture to be shown at the Bijou tomorrow. The Bijou orchestra will play to the accompaniment of the pictures. ----------o---------- AT THE CASINO.

As usual, four reels of clear absorbing and interesting pictures will be shown at the Casino on Saturday. Special music will be rendered on the Bartola, the $2,000 musical instrument which was recently installed in the theatre. --------------------o-------------------- A SLIGHT FALL OF SNOW TODAY ----------o---------- Greenville and vicinity experienced the first real snow of the present winter today about 2:30 o'clock,, when an appreciable quantity of the downyflakes fell in the business section of the city and a larger quantity in some of the outlying districts.

It has been "looking like snow" to every weather prophet for several days past, and the Greenville citizen has gotten out of bed several times expecting to see the ground white. However, the snow did not fall, and there was only a very little bit of it today. However, hope springs eternal in the heart of the expectant kiddies.

At an early hour this morning, the temperature was 32 degrees, or exactly the freezing point. The tem[cut off]

ASK LEGISLATURE TAKE ACTION ON OVERHEAD BRIDGE ----------o---------- Asking that the railroads involved be required to pay the entire cost of the erection of an overhead bridge on Buncombe street, at the [Pea-?] mills crossing, the board of county commissioners of Greenville will petition the county legislature delegation to recommend the passage of a special act to this effect, at the coming session of the general assembly. This was the statement of Commissioner G. O. [Brantloff,?] who said that the commissioners had decided to take this action at the suggestion of the county attorney, Mr. Oscar Hodges.

The commissioners express opposition to the proposition that Greenville county should pay a portion of the cost of the bridge. However, they are in favor of assisting the railroads in securing such rights-ofway as would be necessary for the construction of the bridge. --------------------o-------------------- ARRESTED FOR LARCENY
