his many friends.

Mrs. I. M. Mauldin, of this
city, spent Monday in Green

We direct especial attention
to the advertisement of Mr. T.
D. Harris, who has received one
of the finest lots of clothing ever
brought to Pickens. These are
none of your shoddy "hand
'em-down" goods, but every
garment is custom-made from
one of the leading tailoring es
tablishments in America.
Monday night Oliver, the lit

Ily scalled by his brother
and painfully, though
not seriously injured. It

with his coat, which hit a pot of
boiling hot soup on the ktove,
overturning the same on Oliver.
Necessary remedies were imme

Mr. Larry Gantt says he last
fall bought one of the Tongue
les Disc Harrows, this week ad
vertised by the Pickens Hard
ware Co.. and he considers it one
of the most valuable tools a, far
mer can own. Mr. Gantt ran
this harrow over about half a
rough and cloddy piece of swamp
land he had broken up with a
two-horse plow, and it was
thoroughly pulverized. When
the corn matured, the harrowed
land produced more than twice
as much corn per acre as the
section of the same field not so
treated. This tongueless harrow
does not fret or rub your stock,
and it can be used in corners and
and other spots that the old-style
harrow cannot reach. Mr. Gantt
is satisfied that his Tongueless
Disc Harrow paid for itself sev
eral times over the first year.
Every two-horse farmer should
own one, as also a Middle- Bus
Rev. N. G. Ballinger filled his
appointment at the Pickens
Methodist church last Sunday
morning, and preached an ex
cellent sermon. The member
ship of the church feel most
kindly toward Mr. Ballinger,
and it is their good hope and
desire that he will put no blocks
--.in the way of conference send
'ing him back to this charge for
another year. Rev. Ballinger
has done a great work since he
has been on the Pick~ens circuit
and has endeared hiniself to all
the people, not only of his own,
but of other denominations, who
wish for and would be delighted
to see him returned. It is a pity
that the Methodists of Pickens
cannot see .their way clear to
make this a station and extend
to him an indefiniie call to sup
ply it. We hope those who
instrumnental in his

aim returned. He is

We are now having delight

farmers are availing themsolves
of it to finish gathering crops.
All the gins are running to their
utmost capacity. In a short
drive out into the country we

prepare to fence up your place
and to use wire for that pur
pose. The "Pittsburg Perfect,'
sold by J. A. Peek, 'of Pickens,
cannot be beat. It is the only
perfect fence made. He has it
in all the sizes and varieties.
Read his ad. every week, for it
is always new. This week he
offers two styles of ranges at
remarkably low prices. They
are standard make of ranges, in
fact are the Iyest goods made.
He has thrown profit to the
winds and wvill sell 12 'of these

J. D. Moore Says Everybody is Not
Some people talk about hard timea.
Well, they are, but I think we are thei
cause. I have been a farmer for 80 U
years. but never joined any club. I told
the Alliance 18 years ago they would
make bad matters worse. They went
on, and in my estimation brought cot.
ton down from 9 to 5 cents per pound.
That played out, and cotton went to
12 1-2 and 15 cpats. Now the Farmers'
Union comes, and coiton is down to 9c
again. Holding cotton is not the thing
it is cracked up to be. Let some sell; if Jo
some want to hold, that's all right.
That lets the cotton on the market by
degrees. But when all club together y
and say all hoL together, that won't do.
It has to come to markct some time,
and if you hold another year. then there
would be two cr(ops together. That
would make it still cheaper. Sell cot
ton as you get it, out of the patch is my
mottn. We can't have things o~ir way T
nohow, and better for us to do bad thah
worse So I will close by s-tying

would like to have some.
