Was a 6 dfo to the to

A tle'was reaching to
seze tho .udket tie entire top of
the aw&y and fell in
young lady with
It. h waa-forty-fivo feet
in depth, with five feet of water.
At the time of the accident )r.
Cham4n was sitting out on his
8" reading. He "dw his
ughter start to the well with
a bucket, and when he heard
the noise caused by giving away
of the well-house knew that
somet had ha pened. One
when .he reathed the scene of
tl,e accident and glancing down
tito the depths saw his daugh
ter's perilloqs position. At'first
he did not know whether she
was killed or not by the fall. He
asked her if she was much hurt.
The answer came back that she
did not think she was. harmed
much. The rope, windlas and
bucket were left intact, and Mr.
Chapman next inquired if she
felt able to be dr iwn up, or must
some one go down for her. The
brave young lady told her father
to hurry up and carefully lower
nid bucket and she
unaided. This was
lanting her feet in
nd holding on to the
ttie was safely lan
ded on terra firma. She was
shivering with cold, having been
completely immersed in the icey
water, but with this exception
not the slightest harmed-the
water having broken the force
of the box on which she was
carried down. Had the well
been dry, she would have been
seriously injured if not killed.
After changing her clothes and
lying down a short time Miss
Mattie resumed her domestic du
ties, as if she had not so recently
taken that frightful parachute
leap into the well and an immer
sion in that chilling water. But
Miss Mattie Chapman is a fair
sample of our brave Southern
girls, and especially those who
live under the shadoy of the
Blue Ridge in this Piedmont re
gion, and which produces the
finest women on earth.

consultation in a case in this
county. Dr. Black has a host of
friends and admirers in Pickens

hand and tell him how glad they
S were to see him. Every one who
knows Dr. Black is his s*aunch
friend and admirer, and did he
consent to enter public life there
is no position within the gift of
his people but he could have.
The Doctor is a broad-minded,
brainy,clear-sighted man, genial
and public.-spirited, and makes a
a success of whatever he under
takes. He has promised, at an
early day,; to bring Mr. W. L.
Gassaway and pay a social visit
Sto Picken. These gentlemen wll
find our gates thrown wide open

A Model Suburban Home.
The writer a few days since,
spent a most 4lightful afternoon
with Mr. Welborn, who has re
cently buit a beautiful residence
on his farm In the suburbs of
Pickens, just beyond the cotton
mill. -It is an fdoal location, and
when the grounds are Improved
it will be one of. the prettiest
homes in-our Piedmont section.
Water is carried into the house
and lot from an ice-cold spring,
by gravitation. Mr. Welborn
telli us his father was the first
farmer to use guano in Pickens
county. It was put up in barrels
and hauled from Anderson on a
wagon. He put this fertilizer
on a ten-acre field, from which
he gathered nine bales of cotton,
and which was considered a re
imarkable yield in those days.
The Farmers' Union in Pickens
will erect a cotton warehouse
near the mill, and have taken
and option on the water from a
spring on Mr. Welborn's land,
from which water can be carried
into the building, affording pro
tection against fire..

means you can buy your dry goods for less money than you
did last year. My prices will be based on 8c cotton. No
