Whiskey For Sate.
We heard that several parties
have ordered, and have got, a
lot of whiskey, which they ex
pect to dispose of at the fair
next week. This may be idle
nimor, and we hope it is, but if
it be true, we hope) the said par
ties will take a second thought
and desist from their plans. At
the fair will be no place for any
one under the influence of whis
Wey and the officers of the law
are determined to be extra vigi
lant to see that there is none
sold, and even drank in and
around town during that time,
if they can prevent it. With
main street packed and jammed
ith women and children and
the streets closed to trafc, one
man under the influence of a
kecoctio of the cheap poison
aould create a nnic and igit
,e te means of several liles lost.
We ho the good deple of the
iufiey yill exert their inhuence
ma stbe crowd at the fair.
t yrg have any whisiy to sell
Mr dink, wait until the far is
ever to do it. As we remarked
in the outset, this report may
b,e only an idle rumor, nd i
hope it is, but a stitch in time
saves nge, and aord to th
Vine is suticiept.
t Importanec of Observing e Rvloi
Lai4 dowo for Exhibitors.
We prit tq-0ay a series of
Tples 1pid down to govern exhibi
tors, which are pecessary in or
de to enable the various corn
niitteemen having charge of ex
bibhits to properly collect and di
rect the same so that none may
be overlooked. The crowdei
condition of the streets during
Fair week, and the fact thal
Main Street will be closed against
travel during the active opera
tions of the Fair make it neces
sary for the convenience of all
parties and for the safety of the
general public that some rules
be made and enforced. So dc
not blame the Fair management
for any miscarriage of your own
exhibits, but take these rules in
to consideration, and observe
them by sending your exhibits
in due time and aid the various
committees by looking personal
ly after your exhibits.
Post Master Morris Attends Meeting.
The Sixth Annual Convene
tion of the National Association
of Postmasters of the second and
third classes, was held at Gainse
ville, Ga., on September 8, 9, 10,
1909, and Postmaster A. M.
Z~hwMorris of Pickens, S. C. attended
same. Postmaster Morris stated
that the convention was a suc
cess in every respect, and al
though there was considerable
business transacted at the said
meeting, there was plenty of
time remaining for pleasure and
he enjoyed every moment of the
Postmasters from all parts of
the c'ountry were present, some
of which had never seen cotton
growing, therefore meetings of
this kind not only improve
postal facilities but affords op
portunities for the Northern
people to become better ac
quainted with the Southern
people and the progress they
have made since the war and
are making in the present time.
Let us hope that Postmaster
Morris will be able to convince
the majority of the members
that Pickens is the most suit
able place for next ednvention.
Governor and Mrs. Joseph M.
Brown gave a reception to the
Postmasters at the Executive
Mansion Saturday -evening, ami

kouty give some pulAic expres

1 "nd,-WFereas, it-is desired
an appreciation out of respect
to many who did not hold m'm
bership in any Camp of Con fed
erate veterans in the County,
though it seemed eminently
meet and proper that they
should be remembered, and de
siring so to remember all old sol
diers who were entitled to r cog
inition as Confederate veterans,
the meeting of June 3rd, 1909,
saw fit, after full discussion. tc
appoint the undersigned a com
mittee to draft suitable resolu
tions as hereinabove indicated:
BE IT Resolved: That thE
old soldiers of Pickens County,
through the undersigned com
mittee duly appointed, hereby
speak the feelings of regret and
of loss which the Confederate
veterans of Pickens County
sustain in the death of all our
comrades who have passed away
since the organization of any
Camp in Pickens County. In a
general way, we cannot deal
w ith each indivIdual life and
hold it up to the present rener
ation more than to say that the
courage exemplified by these
soldiers has had no equal in the
history of this country. The
Southern army contained ni
truer representatives of Amei i,
can aoldiery and citizenshir
than those who went from th'E
section of South Carolina tc
serve the cause for which they
fought for principle. In passing
we realize that such tribute aE
this must be written of all tru(
soldiers, and we think it approp

to give some measure of express
sion of our gratitude to God fo
his mercies unto us in giving u
the examples of their live san(

crowds at Six Mile, but owing
to'the mud and the inclemency
of the weather the audience was
fairly good. At 10 a. m. the
Supt. of the school, Mr. C. R.

24th division of Psalms after

Brother D. E. Garrett.

1there were other able speakers
present. The first speaker, Rev.
W. M. Wa ker, was then intro
duced and made a good lecture
on Sunday school work. Every
body who knows Bro. Walker,
knows he is one of the ablest
promulgators of the Gospel, in
the county, for the Lord seems
to bless his work and crown his
efforts with success wherever he
holds a meeting. He closed a
weeks meeting at Glenwood Cot
ton Mill a few days ago and the
result was 25 accessions to the
The next speaker was Bro. J.
C. Garrett who also made an
instructive and edifying talk on
Sunday school work. Mr.
Garrett made his speech pretty
well along the same line that he
did at the Cateechee Sunday
school plenic. He showed the
importance of work to develop
the physical frame as well as
the mental training. Mr. Gar
