In a ,one-sided game of base
ball Pickens beat Easley here
yesterday, 14 to 1. The E asley
boys, though aided by a Liberty
and a Brushy Creek player,
were c 1 e a r 1 y outclassed, the
locals playing rings around them
from start to iinish. The entire
Pickens team played good ball,
both at the bat and in the field,
Grandy's work in the )ox being
especially good, and but for a
wild toss to third he would have
scored a shut out. The Easley
team evidently had an off-day.
Southpaw Cephas Sitton from
Brushy Creek pitched his first
.game 'of the season, and found
great difficulty in getting them
over the plate. This Is the same
Sitton who pitched professional
ball in Virginia last year and
who was offered a try out with
the Greenville club of the Caro
lina league this year. Dr. Will
J. Bolt umpired a most satisfac
tory game. A large crowd saw
the game, several coming up
from Easley and Liberty. iBat
tories: Pickens, Grandy and
Freeman; Easley, Sitton and
We had the above account of
the game in type, when our reg
tilar sport writer, whom we
thought was out of town, sent
in the following:
The Pickens and Easley teams
)hiyed a very exciting game of
ball at the Pickens baseball park
on Wednesday, June 24, and the
many brilliant plays were wit
nessed by a large and orderly
Gieen McLe3key, the chubby
shortstop, demonstrated h I s
mean disposition when he madte
-a daring steal from first to sec
ond while the ball was in the
hand of pitcher Sitton. The
large audience applauded Mc,
which was just and proper at
the time, but when the audienoe
recovered thenielves they sav
that they had done a wrong, for
it is against the law of this
state, but Mc was so bold and
fearless in scheme that the good
Jaw-abiding citizens gave bond
for his appearance at the next
Umpire Dr. Bolt, better known
as slim Will, umpired the game
andl was congratulated for his
fairness; he seemed to please
everybody present, and whie
no relord was kept, there is a
rumor to the effect that he made'
ten errors out of twelve chanices.
Pitcher Grandy played a very
nice game and his wonderful
control was responsible for the
measly, score on the part of the
E1asley team. It was not an easy
matter to secure the services of
pitcher Roy, for he wvas supposed
to have been in a large city for
some reason unknown to Sheriff
Jennings and the name of the
place .is unknown to the writer.
Dicic Freeman can not be
praised, to highly for his great
work behind the bat,'and while
Dick is a-mere youngster in age,
he nevertheless possesses a veter
an's brain. Hagood Brt. cc and
Jnho. Carey constituted a part of
the stone w411l inield, and several
times the Easley loya rem arked
that these youngsters had takc
ing ways-they semed to take
iverything that came t heir way.
Frank McFall the grne ful se.
ond baseman played his part
with the grace of a big leaguer
and there is a rumor to the effect
that Manager Beard, has sold..
"big one"' to Chicago for $1.85:
The out-fielders deserve much
credit for their patience, for It
was a clear case of wait.
The Pickens boys got 14 hits
of pitcher Sitton while the Eas
ley boys were only able to find
Roy for one hit. The score being
14 to 1 In favor Pickens, and the"
boys reqponsible for the unkind'
treatment are a follows:

To Loafing and Idle Preachers.
Any community that is "pes
tered" with loafers and idlen
should be in constant fear. Th<
criniinals of the-country are thi
idlers and loaters. Such fellowi
should be set to work or mad<
bo move on. A strict eye shouk
be kept on every fellow that hai
ao job. They are dangeroun
itizens; they are ready to comn
nit any kind of crime; a vigilani
aoniiittee in every town an<
county could. do incalculabli
servfce if they*ould look afte
that class of humanity. Bu
we have a idt of foafing preach
ers who get license to preach an,
ordination so that they ca1
make a living easy. The easies
job in existence under the. smn
Is to be a negro preacher. . Thes,
Eellows fool silly women and niei

Biblical knowledge; they simpi3
uiltivate their voices; tkey know

mnough. And their ign6ran
learers are deceived by thi
'sounding brass and tinklinc

they can get a few sily wonei

they are satisfied. You will fimn
that this class of preachers is th,
loafing class; they never stud:
anything; they hang around il
barber shops, restaurants, depoti
and the streets and other public
places. They go from house t<
house to "spend the night,'

pass on. A true minister of th<
gospel is a busy man; he has n<
time to gab; he has an imiportan
message to deliver to men-th<
message of salvation. He tarrie
much on his knees and in hi
