Eutored April 23, 1903 at FickensS. 0., as second class matter, under act of Congress of March 8, 1879.
VOL, xxxl HCKi, SOUTH CAROLINA, THURSDAY MAY, 20 1908
In the Running.
J. C. Jennings, who is an
nounced for Sheriff, is offering
for re-election. , Every man,
woman and child in the county
knows "Cal," and he has many
friends who will work hard to
keep him in office.
J. M. Janieson, the present
magistrate of Easley township,
is a candidate for Sheriff. He
has served. the People of his
bailiwick faithfully for several
years and made a good official,
and his friends pledge that he
will discharge the duties of the
Sheriff's office unswervingly and
without fear or favor.
R. R. Roark offers to be sacri
ficed on the altars of his county.
He wants the office of Sheriff,
and wants it bad, as you will
see by a card published else
where in this paper. Bob makes
a plain statement of facts and
says lie is fitted for the place
and wants the salary. Every
body in the county knows him,
or of hin; his record is before
them, and he asks for their suf
frage on his merits.
C. L. Cureton, and who does
n't know Charlie, asks the voters
of the county to consider his ap
plication for, and fitness to, the
-office of Sheriff. He makes no
promises-to us, at least-of
what he will or wont do; he says
duty first and friends next. As
an officer of the State for the
past ten years he has proven his
grit and worth, and has never
been known to shirk or shun a
duty. His record is before the
people of the county, people who
know him, people with whom
he was raised, and he is making
the race on his true manhood
.and merits and will appreciate
the support you give him.
Sam B. Craig announces his
candidacy for the office of Coni
ty Auditor. Everybody knows
lie is a pleasant spoken and affa
ble gentleman, one who is comn
petent to fill the office, and
should he be elected will be a
faithful servant of the people.
Proctor A. Bonham, of Green
ville, announces for Solicitor.
We do not know Mr. Bonlian,
but he is a son of Gen. M. L.
Bonhani, and is fully competent
and capable to discharge the
duties of the office to which he
M. C. Long, who aspires to be
Solicitor, is a young man of good
common sense and judgment;
one who is thoroumgly familiar
with every detail of the office,
being a good lawyer and having
been court stenographer of this
circuit for some time. His
friends predict his election and
say he will b~e a terror 'to the
law breakers. What his enemies
say is immaterial.
A. Jeff Welborn offers for the
place of County Commissioner,
and having served in that ca
pacity ~before, is thoroughly
familiar with the office and his
friends say he was one of the
best ever In there and if he is
elected will discharge the duties
to the best of his ability.
E. F. Looper offers for re-elec
tion as County Supen~ Isor. Being
so well known over the county
and having .filled the office ac
ceptably for several terms, he
. eeds no hntrodugloyi to the
voters at our hands. His friends
say he is the best ever in that
position, that he has given the I
best roads the county has over
had and that he should be kept.
there as long as he will serve.
"Seek and yeshall find; knock ]
and it shall be opened unto you." 2
This is a biblical injunction to
which Frank'E. Cox is pinning I
much faith these days. He is (
now-seeking enough votes in the J
county to enable him to knock I
at the door of the office of Clerk
of Court and have it opened unto
him. In common parlance, he t
is a "runner"-a candidato-f )r
Clerk of Court. Frank has a
good record and stands well In
the county and should he be
ele.cted will make a good officer. t

On Saturday night the ledger
closes with a clash, the iron door

Homeward, ho! The door that
has been ajar all the week gently
closes behind him, the world is ,
all shut out. Shut out? Shut 3
in, rather. At home are his trea- I
sures after all, and not in the I
vault and not in the book-save r
the record in the old family
Bible-and not in the bank.
Maybe you are a bachelor,
frosty and forty. Then, poor '(
fellow, Saturday night is noth
ing to you, just as you are noth
ing to anybody. Get a wife,
blue-eyed or black-eyed, but
above all, true-eyed. Get a little
home-no matter how little-a

n Th3 Layman's Movement In Plokens
I do not know of anything bet
s ter that I could write of than to
give a brief account of what Is
being done in our Association.
The executive committee of
the Association met and arrang
ed a program for a series of Lay-"
men's missionary meetings to be
held with each church on a reg
ular preachiing day, the pastor co
1 operating. We have gotten up
a neat card, which we ask each
lay member to sign, pledging
e himself to pray, work for and
give to missions during the pres
A ent year a certain sum. We dis
s tribute these cards before the ser
vice is held; then by the use of
maps and statistics we show
what is needed and explain the
Layman's Movement, earnestly
insisting that each man do some
thing. After this we take a col
lection, requesting that all the
cards be returned. The signed
ones are turned over to the pas
tor of the church, You would
be surprised how much the Lord
0 is blessing this work and when
the matter of missions Is laid
" squarely on a man's heart, he is
bound to respond. You may
Lt look for the Pickens Association
s to do more than her part this
year. Yours for Christ,

a Hatching Ostrich Eggs.
Ostrich eggs are being hatch
ed in an incubator in this citr.
A novel egg-hatching is being
a- carried on at the store of Cren
d shaw -Bros., iii upper Franklin
street. Thirteerr fine ostrich
eggs froni the recently establish
ed Tampa ostrich farm have re
cently been placed in an incu
bator, and they will hatch off
some time early in May.
d It takes an average heat of 107
degrees and 45 days of constant
y exposure to such heat to develop
the germ in an ostrich egg and
hatch a young ostrich; The eggs
are worth $20 each, and it is a
conservative estimate that the
young bird will be worth more
than twice that money after it
has passed the first month of its
Some idea of the size of the
.eggs may be gathered from the
k fact that the Mandy Lee incuba
tor, which is being used for the
yhatch, wouldl hold 140 average
hen eggs. Fourteen of the
ostrich eggs would fill it corn
k pletely. An empty ostrich egg
holds just one quart of liquid.
