the Pickens mill team yesterd ay
by the one-sided score of 8 to 1.
Beard and Grandy did the bat

Shepherd and Patterson formed
the mill battery.
Gaines & Gassoway Bros. say
that since the Maw bridge road
has been changed and put in
good fix, that a large part ofthe
people of the western part of the
county come to Central to trade,
and that the town it getting and
holding patronage that never
came there before. We are glad
they are doing well and hope
they will do better.
At a meeting of the trustees

candidates, and some of their

good nature and generosity with
the statement to "please an

and I'll hand to you in a day or
two," or "i'll mail you the
money when I get home," or
"please announce me for such
office and send bill and I will
send you check." Invariably
we have accommodated them
with the result that several of
these have failed, so far, to
carry out their part; the result is
we have several announcements
that are not paid for, and if the
remittances for same are not in

Fire At Easley.
Tuesday evening fire was (is
covered in the upstairs of the
Lathem building, now owned by
J. W. Ellison and J. 0. Pickens,
and occupied by Ellison and the
Easley Furniture Co. N. D.
Taylor, photographer, occupied
the upstairs and when he dis
covered the fire in an adjoining
room, which was filled with cof
fins, it was raging to such an
extent that it was impossible to
put it out. The bueket brigade
assembled and did what they
could and citizens lent willing
hands to try and carry out the
stocks of goods. On the build
inp s3,000 was carried which
was about half its worth; on El
lisoi's stock, value a bout$15,000,
was .6,500 of insurance: the
furniture stock, value between
$.,000 and $4,000, there was
$1,000 of insurance; N. 1). Tay
lor lost about $600 with no in
surance. The many friends of
these people sympathize with
them in this loss. It is very
probable that an adequate fire
protection will now be put in by

section to a successful termina

when the officiating minister,
L. E. M. Freeman, pronounced
Ed. Looper and Miss Fannie
Bowen man and wife.
It all happened at the home
of the bride's father, Martin
Bowen. Wie waited as the sun
wvent down. There, just about
the time when one of old went
forth to meditate (GenesIs 24:
63), the groom and a few of his
friends appeared-in buggies
not on camels. The vows
taken, the name changed, the
congratulations spoken, all fol
lowed a suggestion, which led
to the dining-rcom, where we
forgot the rest of the world in
the excess of good cheer. There
was no restrainst. That par
ticular kind of formality that
makes one sit up straight and
be good was dispensed with.
Even the groom relaxed some

find it to be a kind of trickery,

No well read doctor will speak
