PICKENS WILL HAVE FAIR
A meeting of the Pickens Co.
Fair Association was held in
the court'house Wednesday af*
ternoon at 4 o'clock to deter
mine whether or not they would
have another fair this fall.
It was unanimously decided
to have a fair.
The following officers were
elected to serve for the ensuing
year: T. J. Mauldin, Pres.: R.
T. Hallum, V.-Pr,.-.; W. J.
Bolt, Sec.; J. N. Hallum, Treas.
J. F. Harris, Gen'l. Mgr.
The meeting was very enthu
siastic and all the indictations

The Georgia Railroad has run
into an open switch. There
seems to be a stubborn strike
and the proverbial Billy-goat

neither will lie down and let the
other walk over.
The management want negro
firemen on the locomotives and
the other help do not want them.

Demonstrations of violence by
excited crowds have been made
in Augusta, Thomson and Ath

work by urudent men on both
sides can avert a far reaching
calamity. Statute law connects
the railroads in the United
States. Community of interest
connects the labor unions.
The little family jars at Clem
son College serve to keep its
name in the papers, and gives
to editors and correspondents all
the excuse they need for saying
anything they think. The Co
lumbia State asks " Why Clem
son?' The Anderson Daily Mail
uses a column to give many po
tent reasons on the "why."
Others want the State to take
full charge and not be in part

trustees. These trustees as has
been often shown never have
been dictatorial or partisan.

No more power or expense is

As was announced in this pa
per last week, Mr. DeForest
Williams died in the Hospital at I
Aberdeon, Washington, on the
14th inst. and his brother, Wade
had his body embalmed and
started home with his remains
on the 15th. They reacht1 dNor
ris on No. 41 on the night of the
20th inst. His remains were
carried immediately to his mo
ther's, Mrs. A. B. Willians, of
Norris, where they remained
until the next day (Friday)
about 1 p. m. and were then
carried to the Baptist Church at
Norris and his funeral preached
by Rev. W. M. Walker after
which all that was mortal of him
was carried to Mt. Zion cemetery
at Central and laid to rest beside
his father, the late A. B. 'Wil
liams, who proceeded him to
that world beyond about eight
The deceased was a single
man, about. 30 years old. He
left home about ten years ago
and went to Indianna where he
remained for two years When
his father died he came home
and stayed a few days after
which he and his brother Wade
left and went to Aberdeen,
Wash., where they have re
mained ever since. DeForest
was on the police force when he
took sick and had been for
some time. His employers say
he made a faithful and fearless I
officer, always ready and wil
ling to discharge any duties
that might be envolved upon
He was sick 48 days. He was
first taken with the grip and
was confined in the hospital sev
eral days after which he got bet
ter and went on duty again. He
was then stricken down with
paralysis from which he never
did recover. The deceased nev
er had united with any church
but just before his death Father
Griffin of the Catholic hospital
where he was confined baptised
him. He told his brother Wade
just before he died that he had
Ibeen baptized and that every
thing was all 0. K. with him.
De Forest was a young man
who always stoodl ready and
willing to do his part in any
thing. His brother J. W. Wil
liams tells us that even in a
trade or any kind of a trans
action with his brothers or
strangers he would do more than
was his part rather than to have
hard feeling. He always stood
ready to lend a helping hand in
any kind of a benevolent pur
pose or cause.
He belonged to bo0th the Odd
Fellows and the Red Men. The
Odd Fellows of Cateechee at
tended the burrying and carried
out the rules of the order.
The deceased leaves a mother,
one living sister, Mrs. Turner
Arno!d of Central, and four
brothers, namely, W. J., J. W.
Wade and Barney Williams of
Cateechee besides a host of other
relatives and friends to mourn

EAGLES IN THE COUNTRY.
M. M. Rogers. of Liberty Killed Big
One last Friday. Milt Childs
of Traveller's Rest Killed
Mr. Milt Childs, of Traveler's
Rest, shot and killed a large
eagle Saturday at Traveler's
Rest. which measured 7 feet 4
inches from the tip of one wing
to the tip of the other. The
eagle was perched upon a limb
of a tree watching some young
pigs feeding in a pen. Mr.
Childs securing his trusty old
gun. got within shooting <1i3
tance, and with a clever shot
brought the bIig bird down. The
left wing of the eagle was brok
en. It gave a spirited battle be
fore Mr. Childs finally managed
to kill it. Mr. Childs says there
is another one near his place
even larger than the one he kil
led on Saturdar.-G reenvill e
On last Friday morning, the
21st instant. Mr. M. M Rogers,
of the Libert y side heard a ter
rible eawing out in his pasture
from a lot of crows and lookinge
out he saw what he first thought
might be a large hawk or owl in
a tree, but, after getting his gun.
and going up nearer discovered
that it was an eagle. He shot
at it, breaking its wing, and on
approaching it, it put up a bold
front; he shot it again and this
time succeeded in killing it.
The eagle measured six feet
and eight inches from tip to tip
of wings. That evening he ha(d
it on exhibition in Pickens and
it created quite a lot of interest.
Mr. Rogers gave the carcass to
Mr. Wade C. O'Dell, of Liberty
who will have it stuffed and
keep it. It was quite a large
and vicious looking bird.
