R. L. Boggs was in Pickens
on business last week.
The sad news of the death of
Miss Francis Powers, which oc
curred at her home at Old Pick
ens was received here with sor
row. She had been a patient
'sufferer for a few years. All
was done for her that could be
done. On the morning of April
21st she began to grow worse
and at 1 o'clock her precious
soul took its flight into the arms
of our Father who gave it. She
had been for somo time a con
sistent member of the Presbyte
rian church. She will be great
ly missed. Funeral services
were conducted by Rev. W. M
Mauldin at 2 p. m. the day fol
lowing, when her- body was
tenderly laid to rest in the fami
lV burying ground. To the
griefstricken relatives we ex
tend our deepest svmathy.
Since spring has come things
are taking on a business hum in
our parts. A strong stock comn
panv has just purchased a big
section of our territory near
this place, and will in the next
few weeks erect a large lake
and power plant, with summer
homes, hotels and residences.
This loccation is in the foothills
of the Nantahala mountains,
and when improved will out
riul in grandeur and beauty
the famous "Land of .the Sky
and the Sapphire Country."
Some of the people who have
summer homes in and near our
place have arrived and are pre
paring them for their summer
outings. . Many of the people
who make Highlands, N. C.,
their suinmering place are stop
ping over in Dillard, the same
being the nearest railroad point
to Highlands, and are becoming
interested in the oppoitunities
Not many years and we will
show one of the most beautiful
and progressive parts of the
country. The opportunities are
here, and the trend of the travel
is this way, so let her come.
I would be glad to welcome
-any of the good citizens of Old
SPickens to a business location
Iamong us.~ T1he counntry is
fresh, and the new railroad
through this part has opened a
-section that wvill bear the varied
fruits of industry.
The streams have been abun
dlantly stocked b)y the govern
ment wvith the famous California
-trout. andl if the editor will visit
us on his summer outing will
- show him some real fishing with
.satisfactory results, and will
add proof of all the fish storles he
-may ever have heard fronm the
mountain section. W. J. Hf.
