Cntered at the Post Office at Pickens a
Stibscription, $1.00 a Year.
THURSDAY. MAIL. 20, 1902.
John P. Altgeld, once Governor
of the state of Illinois, and a pub
lic man prominent in Democratic
politics, is dead.

WIAT has become of the move
ment for a cotton mill at Pickens.
We need one and can got it with a
little concerted action.
THE enterprising people of Pick

town a little by planning and carry
ing to a successful issue a "JPourth
of July" celebration.
A r the beginning of this year,
don't buy too hastily or too much.
Conservative buying and more
than usual diligence will bring
their good results next November.

the remote sections of. the county,

about lanuting time every year, tc
