VOL " YIIL
Pickens ()
We stated in our last Issuei
that we would publish a com
vlete list of the prize-winners at
the recent fair, and since that
time we have made an earnest
endeavor to carry. out our prom
Ise, but regret to say that a de
tailed list of the premiums is
about as difficult to secure as
was currency during the recent
panic.
It is notour purpose, however,
to censure or criticise the re
sponsible parties, because we
can readily understand how an
accident of this kind could occur.
Everyone seemed carried away
with the fair, and no dox~t the
gentlemen who have this im
portant data in their possession
are celebrating over its success
ful results, and under the cir
cumstances we feel that it is
only just and proper that a ver
idict of unavoidable accident be
rendered in this case, with the
hope that we- will run across
these gentlemen at the next big
fair in the county of Pickens.
In jus ice, however, to the
statement made to our subscrib
er, we take pleasure in publish
Ing such report as we secured.
While it is not as complete as
we had expected, nevertheless
it is sufficient to show the en
thusiasm that prevailed during
this event, and we hope that
the competition 'throughout the
county will be ten times greater
at the-next fair.

The':Woman's Department of
dhe Pickens County Fair Asso
3Aation, under the supervision
f Mrs. T. J. Mauldin, chair
man, was a decided success.
LComplimnents galore were
showered on the exhibit room.
Some persons said it compared
most favorably with like exhib
ts at state fairs. There were
i great number of handsome
lisplays of handicraft, art and
lomestic work..
It was easily seen that the
men were gttracted to the coun
ber' presided over by 1frs. L. K.
DIureton, replete with a most
lavish assortment of canned
fruits, vegetables, preserves,
jellies, wines, and cordials,
which alone is evident proof
of the thrift and industry
of the Pic1Eens conty house
wives.

The women of the Fair Asso
ciation are greatly pleased wit]
having these old-thpe relics, an<
hope others may be sent nex
year.
The judges who awarded thi
premiums were Mrs. R. F
Smith, Easley; Miss Paulin<
Islar, Charleston, and Miss Ger
trude Austin, Greenville, a mos
capable trio, who acted fairl:
and impartially.
While there may have beei
errors committed by those iL
charge, It i& hoped that the:
will be spared criticism, on tlh
grounds that this was their fin
attempt at managing. any- d(
partment at a fair, and It is rea
sonable to suppose that man:
improvements may be made b:
another year.
Let the women of the count,
look forward to the fair in 1909
and plan work for it.

Intemperatneo Acto*s Uint.

Coleridge the appreciative comment
that to see him act was like reading

ruined his family and made it naede
sary for his son Charles to a qult
school and become an actor, a change
for which- young Kean had no liking.
