Makes Some Calculatfor
To Superm
Pickens, S. C., 23d Nov. 1907.
E F. Looper, Supervisor.
Dear Sir; Knowing you to be
progressive man, ith the welfare o
your county' at heart, an advocate c
good roads, and alwitys ready to tak
advantage of any move, or schetn
for the betterment of the public high
ways, I wish to call your attention t
the following proposition which
would be pleased to havo you ple
before the Honorable Board of Conn
ty Coutnissijnera for their earnes
Pickens county is ill need of bette
roads, and more and better bridges
and whilo we would compliient tlh<
gentlemen conposmg the preseni
board on the great improvewnent, it
the roads for the past year, there it
no dodging the fact that there is stil
room for more improvement and ther
some more.
While listening to the "chicket
cranks" discussing the prospects fo
the coming poultry show and thi
profits from the (foul) business, gen
erally,my thinking hatchery got bus;
and incubated an idea.
Now, Mr. Looper, don't look 01
this as a pipe dream, the creaking o
the unoiled wheels in the middle of I
crank, but give it your earnes
thought. and consideration for yoi
can take my word for it, it is a grea
scheme, and with your cooperation I
can turn an honest penny and Pick
ens county will becomo the banne
county in th6 South.
It is a great scheme, Mr. Looper
In the language of the late lamente
Col. Sellers, "there is millic n in it.
Now for my proposition, which i
so simple, and so very, very, practica
ble. By the way, Mr. Looper, ther
is no strings on this proposition ani
no chance for graft. Tbe Picken
Bank shall be custodian of fund
providing they will increase the siZ
of their vaults, and put sealingwa
on the doors, and let Hovey Neale
sit on the lid.
Now for my proposition: Picken
county needs good rcads. She ha
got a Srstlass place to "pt 'em" and
I propose to build a monument t<
mnyself..as it were, as the great road
builder of the twentieth century.
Here is my proposition; under th<
supervisionu of the Supervisor I wil
expend $1,000,000 for the bettermen
of the roads and bridges in Pickeni
County- $200,000 per year for tiv<
years, beginning January 1st, 1912
on the following conditions.
The Board of County Commission
era are to give me two cocks and ter
hens (any old common everyday
barnyard breed will do), all the nec
essary houses, lands, feed, &c., foi
the raising and maintenance of th4
flock and increase, for the term o
fiv years, and all ineubators, brood
er's, houses, iquds, etc , after the fiv4
years re-vert to the county.
N ow, Mr. Supervisor, sharpen you
pencil and get busv. Figures won
lie. The female fiiute is sotnewha
deceptive; as I have been told, by
figures wont lie. Any good hous
wife who ever had a flock of *'bit
dies" picking in the slopbucket o
the buck door step, will bear me wil
ness that the following estimate o
- "Hent Culture" is about the stuf
Any good old hen when she settle
*down to business will lay on an evel
age 151) eggs per year. Of these 7
per cont will prove fertile, 25 pE
,eent of which will be cockerals, 33
per cent counted out for losses la
disease, hawvkR, visitations of t1h
Southern darkey and ether midnigi
We will sell onehalf the eggs at 1~
cets a d1or; 50 per cent of the coe'
ere~s end 25 per cent of the pulle
at 25 cents each, and here hi ho~v ti
old thing works, fractions to go
lbe rats,
