E. H. Gilliland, of Piedmont,
was in Iickens last Saturday
shaking hands with old friends,
and, incidentally, settling for
his "old home paper," which he
says he could not do without.
Mr. Gilliland for a number of
years has lived near Piedmont,
but has recently moved to the
Dr. Richardson farm, near Slii
loh church, in Anderson county.
His address will still be Pied
mont, R. F. D. 1. Last year
he made 13 bales of cotton and
100 bushels of corn with one
horse. This is a pretty good
showing and lots of people could
set their pegs for this kind of
.showing in 1909.
IAway back yonder, fifty or
sixty years ago, there was a
preacher living in this county,
by the name of J. R. Hamlin.
He was born and raised near
Brevard, N. C., and married a
daughter of Rev. Jonathan
KIng, of the Six Mile section of
this county. In 1869 Rev. Ham
lin and family moved from this
county to Missouri and settled.
In the family was a son, who
was 11 years 01(d the day after
he started for his far-off home.
This boy grew to mau hood andl
made his mark in~ his adopted
state, and four years ago was
prevailed1 upon by his friends to
run for congress on the Demo
cratic ticket, which he did and
was elected, and is now serving
his second term. During the
holidays he was an escort with
the body of a Louisiana'senator
to the burial in New Orleans,
and on his way back he stopped
off for a few days' visit to the
scenes of his childhood. W. C.
Hamlin, now of Springfield,
Mo., and N. R. Kennemore, of
the Kings section of this county,
played together and went to
school together around the'old
SGates schoolhouse until they
were parted by the one going
'way to a new home, where he
has lived and prospere'd and is
Srespected and loved by all who
know him.' It was a joyous re
, union by these cronies of for
mer days. Mr. Hamlin's friends,
. and,friends of the family, will

A cutting scrape, which may
yet prove serious, anid even
fatal, occurred ini the Six Mile
section last Sunday between
John Roberts and Walter E.
Pinson. It seems that Pinson,
who had b)een to church at Six
Mile andl w~as on his way home
when he was hailed by Roberts,
who is a brother-in-law, to stop
and see a sick mule of his
(Roberts'). As they reached
the stable Roberts remarked to
Pinson, "You 'have been talk
ing about me." Pinson reflied,
"If I have I will own it." Rob
erts then made a rake at him
with a knife, cutting 'a long
gash in the back of Pinson' s
head and down behind the ear
and across the neck, narrowly
issing the jugular vein. Pin
son ran and Roberts pursued,
stabbing him several times in the
back, inflicting severe wounds.
Il'rom the best information that
c/an be gathered the attack was
tupcalled for. It is to be hoped
.ifaat no complications will arise
and the wounds will soon heal.
