PICKENS, S. C.:
THURSDAY, MARCH 4, 1909 e
Pnipkiutown Telephone Co, n
An innovation in the tele
phone line of the county is the
lines now known as the Farmers
lines, which the Bell people are
inaugurating. Several farmers
in a community get together tj
and build a line and get their T
connection at some exchange, (
thus enjoying the same privi
leges that the city subscribers n(
Mr. Webster, of the Bell Tel
ephone Co., has been in Pickens
county for several weeks and o
has worked up considerable in
terest in these lines and last ti,
Friday he organized the Pamp- I,
kintown Telephone Co., with sti
Matthew Hendricks as president. C'
The line will run from Amos th
Sutherland's store to Pickens, '.
by way of Griffin church, and st
has a dozen subscribers but the f
probability is that quite a fe
number of citizens along this ti
route will connect with them
as the line is being put up. The dc
promoters feel sanguine that at
least 30 subscribers will be con
nected up by the time the line is
completed into Pickens.
Mr. Webster is now working
in the western part of the coun- se
ty and it is very probable that a
line from Six Mile to Pickens
will be in operation by summer, H
as well as some other lines that b
are now under consideration. 15
A Farmers line has bee . -
cently established. fro Easley
out into the Geor ' s Creek sec
tion of the coi y. Senator C. 5
H r is on this line and
. shc company a very
strong testimonial, which is as
"As a matter of fact, it is diffi
cult to understand how we ever
did without telephone service,
when its value and convenience e
is considered, and the cost so
low in comparison.
"I hope to see the time when
every farmer will have a tele- E
phone in his home. Its uses are
so varied that there is scarcely ,
a farmer who could not use tel
ephone service to an advantage. t
The mere presence of a tele- i
phone -a the house gives one a i
feeling of safety when away y
from home, and the knowledge
that an emergency may be C
promptly met is more than a
worth the cost of the service." d
We are particularly enthusi- S
astic over this Farmers line de
velopment and when the people y
realize the benefits and import- ,
_ance of these lines they will
have the county well covered
with lines connecting with the
various exchanges in this coun
ty. _ _ _ _ _ _

The Doctor's First Question
"How are your bowels?" This is generally the first ques
tion the doctor asks. He knows what a sluggish liver
means. He knows what a long list of distressing com
plaints result from constipation. He knows that headaches,
bilious attacks, indigestion, impure blood, and general
debility are often promptly relieved by a good liver pill.
We wish you would talk with your own doctor about
this subject. Ask him at the same time if he approves
of Ayer's Pills. Do as he says. I. C.Ayer Co.,Lowell,Mass.
