LIBERTY, S. C.-The Pickens
County F. E. and C. U. of A.
will hold an educational rally
at Pickens court house, Satur
day, August 22, open to the
world. Everybody invited to
attend, especially those interest
ed in agricultural pursuits, and
that includes the whole human
family. Among the prominent
speakers to: te with us on that
occasion is G. M. Davis of Geor
gia, who has been State lecturer
of Georgia, and who conducts
the Farmers Union department
in the Atlanta Constitution, and
whose work in the Union all
well informed union men are
more or less familiar with.
Rem nmber everybody is in
vited, nd that includes your
By order of C. T. Hutchins
and J. M. Garrett, County Ex
ecutive Committee. td
NEWBERRY, S. C., August 8
The Farmers Union is now hold
ing its educational rallies in the
state. Pres. B. Harris has a
corps of able workers visiting
the various counties in the inter
est of the Union.
G. M. Davis of Georkia spoke
here today to a large crowd of
interested farmers. The court
house was well filled from this
and nearby counties.
Mr. Davis has spoken at And
son and Greenwood before com
ing here. He has dates for Lau
rens, Spartanburg, Union, Gaff
ney and Greenville and will visit
these places in order named.
The Union is attracting con
sidera ble attention throughout
the state. New members are
joining daily. Newberry is one
of the best organized counties
in the state.
H-on. B. Harris and J. L. Kitt
andl others spoke.
The time for holding the coun
ty fair is rapidly drawing nigh,
therefore every citizen of the
county should take an active
part from now on, for the suc
cess of the same means a great
deal to Pickens county,
Meetings of various commit
tees have been held from tinxe
to time, and the reports and pro
grammes formulated were Dub
lished in detail in the papers
throughout the county, thereby
affording every one an opportu
nity to compete for the prizes
which will be awarded.
A duty is involved upon every
citizen of this county to make
this fair a success, regardless of
whether he, be a member of a
committee or not. The Individ
ual citizen is as deeply responsi
ble for success of same as is a
rnember or any committee; and
the Importance of this fair and
.Sco fs ? mult
the beneficial results which will
follow should be taken into con
sideratiop by those indirectly
interested in the matter. It is a
matter of impossibility to plice
every citizen of this county on
a committee, therefqre when a
programme of committees was
arranged those that were able
to devote the time and attention
which the same required were
selected, but this does not mean
that any person other than a
committeeman should not inter
est himself in this cause.
This fair is given for the ben
efit of Pickens county, and if
the same does not prove a suc
cess, an idea which has not been
entertained by anyone, the rural
districts and other - sections
would be just as responsible for
the failure, and subject to the
same criticism and comment, as
those living in towns, therefore
let every citizen of this county
utilize the little time remaining
in interesting those who may
manifest an inclination to be
derelict. The Pickens County
Fair is going to dccupy a con
spicuous place for Pickens coun
tv in the hk * ry of success. *
A Family Reunion.
On July 29, 1908, there was
a most pleasant day spent at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. S. A.
Roper, who live two miles south
of Pickens, it being a family re
The table was well loaded
with meats and sweets and all
kinds of good things to eat,
and was enjoyed by all. They
also had plenty of watermelons,
fruit, cider and lemomade.
Mr.. and Mrs. Roper have
raised eleven children; five sons
and two daughters' are. matried;
two girls, Misses May and Belle,
and two sons, Spencer and

part of the .afternoon to the
good music being rendered by
Messrs. Nelson- and Rampey, to
part, each child bidding their
father and mnother good night,
also their aunt, Mrs. Goenell,
