by R. en. It was a pair
of hanes, bought by him of C.
N. Reid in 1868. They were
fashioned by Mr. Reid, of this
county, who is still living, and
they have been in continuous
use ever since by Mr. Bowen,
,and are yet in a good state of
preseryation and repair, and are
good for several years more of
service. Forty years qf service
have they seen, while forty
months would be a good long

Mrs. K. L. Cureton, who is an
expert and an adept in the. culi
nary art, contributed a beauti
ful cake to the county fair. It
is useless to go into a detailed
description of this cake, for eve
ryone who has ever seen one of
her cakes knows what it is; be
sides, the cake was on exhibition
at a public and conspicuous place
in Pickens and was seen by a
great many and admired by all.
It was raffled off after the fair,
and something like $50.00 was
realized, which went to help de
fray expenses of the fair. Two
or three other such raffles would
have footed the bills of the fair
without the aid of a subscription.
During the county fair, our
fair correspondent from Mariet
ta, R. F. D. 2, "Maybolle," paid
this office a most appreciated
call. She is a charming young
lady and is as pretty as she is
vivacious. It is a speck of green
in the oasis, a bright spot that
illuminates and dirives dull care
to a back seat when our corres
pondents drop in on us, espe
cially when these visions of
I loveliness comeW before us. Our
regret is that these stand-bys,
- these material aids to this paper
do riot visit the office of toner and
write more regularly. They
are all always welcome. It is
about time we were seeing oi

H. Snider, Easley's popular
and enterprising jewelry dealer
And excellent watch tinker, has
a change of ad. He quotes a
world of truth when he says:
"There's'a Beauty in Good Jew
elry." This is so, and we all
know it and try to make our
selves more becoming by wear
ing good and beautiful jewelry.
There is no lady so becoming but
what her beauty is augmented
and set off by the wearing of
natty pins, jeweled collar or ring
or'other ornament. Mr. Snider
realizes this and has bought his
stock to meet these demands. If
in need of anything in his line
give him a call and rest assured
that whatever "Harvey"~ tells
you about his-goods is the truth,
the whole truth, and nothing but
the truth. So purchase of him,
knowing that You are getting
good goods and at as low a price
as they can be sold for. No use
to patronize mail order houses
when you can get better goods
for less money from him.
Beans! Who said 'beans?
Bright Gilstrap, who lives on
Mrs. Harriet Bowie's place in
Eastatoe township, was in Pick
ens the other day with a load of
green beans. Mr. GilAtrap has
been selling beans all summer,
peddling most of them out at
Easley. In conversation with
him we learned that he had
raised 71 bushels-56 bushels of
the string bean and 15 bushelf
of the soup bean-on lan(
planted in corn and just whal
he could plow in a half day.
This gave him two crops for the
same amount of work. You
can figure out this proposition
any way you want to, but, any
way you figure it, it beats a
cotton crop to death. Had Mr.
Gilstrap put these bean's and
corn up in cans he would have
gotten fully ten times as much~
for the product as he did. The
time is not far distant when the
people of this county will raise
more produce, cattle and grain
for profit than they do now, and
make cotton more of a surplus
crop, and pay attention to the~
raising and canning of fruits
and vegetables. When this
happy day arrives everybody
will be in a prosperous condi
tion. _____ __

State of South Carolina,
Pickens County.
Fall term of Court of General
To the Honorable Presiding
Judge, J. W. DeVore:
The grand. jury desire t make
this our final report perthining
to the affairs of the county:
We have passsd on all the
bills handed us by the solicitor,
and make such returns as in
our judgment the testimony
We have-visited the poomjarm
and county jail by comn tee,
and find these institutions well
kept and the inmates properly
cared for.
By committee from our body
the county officers' books have
been examined. We find them
neatly kept, but the committee
did not go into the auditing of
these books, not deeming them
selves experts, and qualified to
thoroughly au'dit these books
as the case now demands.
There is an apparent deficit in
the county treasurer's office, as
shown by the comptroller-gen
eral's report made in 1907. This
deficit appears to have come
down from a former adminis
tration. ,
In view of this fact and for
the purpose of arriving at the
precise condition of all the offices,
and that future grand juribs
may have some authentic and
reliable audit to start from.
We beg to recommend that a
competent and authorized com
pany of auditors be employed
to thoroughly audit all the
offices of the county; and that
our delegation to the legislature
provide for the payment of this
audit by special act, not to ex
ceed the sum of $1,000, for fur
nishing a complete audit of all
the offices in the county for the
past six years.
We recommend that the office
of state dispensary constable for
-Pickens county be abolished for
the present, as we feel that that
duty should and now can be.
performed by the duly consti
tuted officers of the county,
such as the sheriff and his dep
uties, the magistrates and their
constables, and we urge upon
such officers strenuous efforts in
enforcing the dispensary law.
We present G. G. Craft for
vagrancy and carrying conceal
ed weapons, and give as wit
nesses B. D. Johnston, E. C.
Sanders,' W. T. Mulkey and
John Grant..
We present Tyler Castle for
vagrancy, and give as witnesses
John H. Reeves, T. C. Oliver .
and A. P. Alexander.
Thanking your honor and
court officers for courtesies, etc.,
and having no further business,
we nowv bog leave to be dis
charged ,from further attend
ance at this term of the court.
Respectfully submitted.
T D. HARIs, Foreman.
