PICKENS, S. C.:
THURSDAY AUGUST 26.1909,
Premium List of Fair
There was a very enthusiastic
meeting of the committees and
chairmen of the Fair Association
held Tuesday in the court house,
and good reports were made.
Ways and means and whys
and wherefores were threshed
out and every phase was boiled
down to its last analysis and
from now on to the end of the
fair every chairman and every
committeeman knows exactly
where he is at and what he has
got to do and when he is expect
ed to do it.
The finance committee not
being up with their work, it was
deemed best to hold the prem
ium list out for a few days lon
ger, especially as some pers-ns
who have not contributed, have
asked for a few days time in
which to get together their do
nations. so this list will close the
morning of the 31st instant.
So far, the premiums offered,
are exceedingly handsome, nu
merous, and costly. They con
sist of money, wagons, agricul
tural implements, ranges, and
stoves , guano, etc.. etc. Over
10 tons of guano will be given
The best prize, $50.00 in gold,
will be given to the farmer for
the best agricultural displav
This includes ev I ng raised
on the f in and must be
brou in and arranged by the
oN ;ner. The display should em
brace everything raised on the
farm,-hay, grain, fruits, vege
tables, molasses, oats, rye,
wheat, corn, peas, beans,
sunflower, clover, hay, sugar
cane,-in fact anything raised
on the farm should be included
in the display; there are three
points governing this display,
two of which points are variety
and arrangement, the judges
supplying the third point with
"the best of its kind," and the
display having the greatest va
ri ety and the best of its kind
gets the $50.00 in gold.
In this individual agricultural
exhibit contest, the second prize
will be a fine nickle plated, 6
hole, asbestos lined range,
known as the Pickens Hard
ware Co's. special. This range
has high warming closet and
copper hot water tank and is
richly worth $32.00. In fact,
many of our people have paid
$65.00 for an inferior range.
Another prize to be given is a
No. 8 'Sunny South' Cook Stove.
This is as good a stove as there
is on the market and it retails
for $15.00. It also is given by
the Pickens Hardware Co.
-Another prize is that given by
the H. -B. -M. Co. It is a Hyde
Diverse Cultivator, avery handy
tool, and well worth $6.00.
We understand from the com
mittee having this list in charge
that there is a probability of sev
eral more prizes being offered for
We urge, nay, beg, our read
ers to compete for this prize.
As it stands now there will be
$125.00 in premiums given away
for this exhibit alone.
This is worth striving for and
we hope every farmer in the
county will be a competitor.
Remember, it does not bar you
from entering for any of the oth
er prizes offered for the best ag
Another special prize given
away is a Nissen 2-horse wagon
given by the H. -B. -M. Co.
There is a string to this prize,
in that all contestants must be
owners of a Nissen wagon.
The wagon will be given to tb
person hauling the great'
number of people to town on
first day. The rules are
kind of stock, mules, ho'
oxen can be used, but n
power, such a tractior
etc., will be permitte. The
people must be hauled in on a
Nissen wagon, and no person
must be taken on within the in
corporate limits of the town.
The loads must all be drawn to
the H.-B.-M. Co's store and
there counted. As many ami
nials can be used in drawinfl- t.4
load as the contestants care to
use. The H.-B.-M. Co. states
that anyone wishing to compete
in this contest, but not owning
a Nissen wagol can )>,Y one of
them, and if successful in win:
ing the prize the purchase price
will be refunded to then, if they
prefer it to another wagon.
The prenium list of the stock
co minittee is about complete !It
we do not plblish it this week,
deemllilg it best to give the en
tire list next issue.
The people of Pickens hav,
responded nobly to the app-ils
of the fair association for help
to pull off the fair. and it will be:
free to all. However, should
anyone in the county feel like
contributing to the financial
end of the fair, it will be thank
fully received. The comnitee
is shy about $200 yet on the Iee
essary amount needed: the band
will cost $165; the woman's de
partment will be given $50.00 to
offer up as prizes; the other
prizes amount to a good deal and
the other necessary expenses
have to be met.
The men who think it doesn't
cost anything to run a fair
should apply for the job.
Home Coming Week
How many people, who were
borned, raised, and originally
lived in Pickens County, or, we
might go farther back, and
make it in old Pickens District.
They all have descendants, who
are scattered to the four winds
of the earth, yet they have not,
lost all interest in the okd-,i-nty,
and a. hear of
ier growth and prosperity. Why
not, then, make a "Home Com
ing Week," and invite them all
to pay a visit here during the
fair? Let each and every citi
zen living in the county who
have relatives in other counties
in this, or other states, write
them to "come home" on that
date. Let us have a gathering
of all the people we can that
claim Pickens county as their
It will not cost much, you in
tend writing your relatives any
way, so just say to them, "meet
me at the Pickens County Fair;
it is Home Coming Week."
Everybody pull for the fair and
for home-coming week. Sept 19
