as may be deemed advisable tc
serve in sub-committee, and yet
every committeeman and every
person in Pickens County inter
ested in the welfare of the Coun
ty and in the success of the pro
posed Fair is urged to contributt
in any way he can towards
making the Fair a success. It
is the purpose to make the Faij
of 1909 an improvement on thai
of 1908, if possible, and this we
hope to do by profiting by the
experiences and mistakes last
year, eliminating such features
of the program of last year as
may now be seem advisable, and
adding to the program such fea
tures as may commend them
selves to the good judgement of
the several committees. We
want t~o make the stock and
farn products features of this
Fair a grand success. The mu
si and amusement features will
th givenl their full share of at
ention, and the ladies depart
ment will be even better than it
was last year, and in this the
Fair Association invites the co
ation and assistance that can
be given them. Let everybody
get his mule, horse, or any other
animal he may have, in shape
by that time. Get to work to
raise creditabe exhibits of farm
products, because prizes will be
offered that will be worth com
W. J. Bolt, T. J. Mauldin,
Celebrating His Birthday.
Please allow space in the S.-J
for me to tell your readers of an
other birth day dinner.
On the 25th this scribe and his
better half found their way to
the hospitable home of Joel R.
Griffin where we fonnd several
of his friends and neighbors and
father, Captain James A. Griffin
for whom the day was celebra
ted, it being his 70th birth day.
He had his good lady with him
and we felt good when we met
her for you know she is a daugh
ter of Rev. W. B. Singleton, de
ceased, who your scribe held in
very high esteem. Those people
are of the old Enon crowd with
whom we used to live in the
days of yore when we plowed
the big ox, but then that's not
telling of the dinner or the day
as I started to do.
Well, when we arrived we
found all enjoying themselves
and Capt. Griffin as spry as a
boy of 16 instead of the man of
70. We all gathered in the sit
ting rooms and cracked jokes,
etc., and finally were listening
to Capt. Griffin's harration of
"war tales" when.some one an
nounced that it was time to pre
pare for dinner. All seemed
very obedient to this command
as they responded without a
murmur. When all were ready
we were shown to the dining
room where they had all kinds
of good things to eat which we
would like to describe but we
are not familiar with the names
of all those delicacies, but I do
know that the dinner would
have been a credit to any home.
We noticed the progress that
Mr. Joel Griffin has made in the
last 10 years since he lived in
the little cottage. He nowv has
a beautiful home and is fixed
up well in every way and when
we took in the surroundings we
did not wonder at he and his
good lady giving a feast in
honor of his father, which the
captain stated was unexpected
to him but was appreciated.
We want to say just here that
Mr. and Mrs. Griffin have been
other-wise blessed as they have
some nice, bright children.
Miss Nina, the oldest one was
very prominent in making
things pleasant and handy in
the dining room and the scribe
naturally enough thought that
if he had life to go through
again now he would focus his
attentions somewhere near Joel
It seems silly to talk hard
times when prosperity is evident
in every home that strives for
Afterwards we all assembled
in the parlor where we had
some nice music and at half
past four we all took leave, and
the 70th Birth Day celebration
of Capt. Griffin was a thing of
the past. A Friend.
