Married at the residence of i
Mr. Larkin Hughes of Pickens ,
County Sunday evening Aug. c
29th by Rev. T. C. Morris of p
Pelzer, Mr. W.A. Lesley of the e
same place to Miss Susie Mc- I
Whorter of Laurens County. c
-Mrs. James L. Lewis, and t
children, of Sapulpa, Indian c
Territory, is visiting the family c
of her farther-in-law,Rev. John r
T. Lewis, and other relatives in p
the county. She will be pleas- f
antly remembered by many of V
our readers, as the daughter In
of the late Wi. Ferguson, a V
former citizen ofthe county, who e
resided near Pickens. She, as.e
Miss Effie Ferguson, was well e
known to many in the county, t:
having been a student of the si
Piedmont Institute. About 20 t'
years ago, she went to Kansas, u
as the bride of Mr. Jas. L. Lewis h
who has prospered in that coun- h
try. They now reside in the bh
Territory, where fortune has T
-smiled on him. She will prob- a:
ably spend some time in and d<
around Pickens, visiting rela- f<
tives. Mr. Lewis will probably ol
come out to visit home-folks and t<
go back with her. Her many
friends are truly glad to see her.
-Last Sunday the quiet of G
the town was rudely broken by de
the cry of fire and consternation o'
reigned supreme. Soon every- hi
body in town saw the direction $1
of the smoke and ran to see ci
what could be done in the way tih
of helping R. A. Bowen to save t
his property, which was on fire. oi
The family had finished dinner sc
and were sitting on the front
porch, oblivious of danger until iti
a neighbor run in breathless and fc
gave the alarm. The blaze had
started from the stove in the
kitchen, a spark falling on the
roof and igniting the roof. The th
bucket brigade formed and did cc
what they could, while willing bc
hands gathered the household ris
goods and carried them out to a th
place of safety.- Most all of the s
articles in the parlor and two sti
bed rooms were saved. From on
the first it was seen that the 19
dwelling was doomed and the
populace turned their attention Ai
to saving the outbuildings and
the neighboring dwellings.3
The day being a calm, still one,
with no breeze stirring, prevent-3
ed what might otherwise have
been a mighty conflagation in
Pickens. There was no insurance
on either the dwelling or the
furniture and the loss falls heav
ily on Mr. Bowen. His friends
deeply sympathise with him -
in his loss and have set to work
and by their kindly offices andW
offers of assistance and help, 1
he is now very well housed in -
.the Parsons house on the corner S.
of Johnson and Garvin street- EG
He will rebuild at once. This "
fire has set the people of the
vn to thinking and if we can
re signs aright our loca'
fire imsulance agents will do
good busiliess and our town -
see to it that Pickens, in th'
ure will have an adequate
of fighting a fire

-We give a great deal of our
pace this week to the premium

iade on his place. The prize
rill go to those having the great
