Sevoral weeks ago the local reporter of
the JOURNAL paid a. visit to Easley and
made a few remarks concerning the prog
ress of that place and took ocoasIoom .to
say something of her merchants. Not
wislilng to show partiality for Easley any
more than any other town or sectton of
our county, we took a trip to Liberty
last Saturday,'to see what we could see
and learn wi at we could learn in regard
to her progress and prosperity.
Liberty is a hustler in every sense of
the word. There Is not a drono in the
place. We were astonished at the n
inense stride she has made since we wore
last there, some three years ago. New
houses may be soon in every direction.
