Enbered at the Post Once at Pickens as
PICKENS, S. C.,:
Thursday, September, 4, 1902.
With cotton open in the fieldE
foddor ripe on the stalk and olec
tions galore, the farmer has littli
timo for play.
Pickons county counts aImor
hor voters a big element of t.h
most intelligent citizenship of til
stato, It takes only a glance a
the tabulated result of ti' sttt
election to demonstrate ths ftl ly.

The fight is on in earnest >otwe(el
John Gary Evans and A. C. Lat -
mer, This is raco on which boast
ful political calculators find it lifi
ficult to settle aIy positiVoopilllons
this far before the election. '1hings
are crystallizing, however, and by
next Saturday the rosult may be
known with coniparative certainty.

I'vea1 prido alwayy plays a1 con
tlicioust part ill elections. This is
creditable to any colmlunlity when
the natn put forward for uIlice
measures up to the r'cquisitos of
oflice, and there never was a tino
more opportulne for the asertiou of
the priviloge of helping good nin
to places of usofulnoss and trust.

Pickons showed ill so well iii the
last election that politicians are
esoing the weight of our vote as a
factor inl state politics. Pickens
county practically cast the deci
ding vote in the late race for state
Superintendent of Education, and
she may decide other results in the
second primary. This approxt
mate full vote is gratifying for
many reasons, not the least among
which is the prestige and im1por
tance it adds to the county.
Some of the newspapors of the
state would have us believe that
the oloction of 0 B. Marttm to the
office of State iSuperintendent of
Education will prove a public ca
All the publi school sense is
not bottled up) in Mr. McMahanm,
and Mr, Martin is as young and ac
tivo and patriotic as Mr. McMahan
and perhaps quite as well informed
on alt matters appertaining to thei
oi\ce, No doubt the businese of
.t office will be carried on with
as good e ffect as under M r.
Iaihan, and wo do believe Mr
..lahani has worked reform ir
school matters of South Carolina.

When the Southern Rail wa'
completes the scheme of double
tracking its line from1 Atlanta t<
Charlotte, this county will hav
added to her attractions the die
tinction of having within her limit
a part of' the truuk line of one C
the greatest systems of railwaysi
t,he world. Every improvemer
inaugurated by this railroad moat
some advantage to Pickens count:
and every element of growth in ti
county means positive benefitsi
the people. The legitimate a<
vancement of any enterprise meal
a corresponding advantage to tl
people touched by it, and when tl
progress is represented by rai
roads, the benefits to be deori v
ought to prove of lastingqualit y.
Wt. Jasper Talbert is essentially
politician-one of the smothost a
ticles in that line that over "'can
down the turnpike." Heyward is i
the midst of his fist p)olitical figl
with a lead that ought to flatter at
candidate for any oflico with suc
an array of worthy competitori
Some predict the result in Hey
ward', favor with assurance, othe
good guessers shake their heads i:
doubt, This much to our mint
briefly stated, is certain; Talber
is hopling and mcoving for suogeu
with deep sohem, well laid, Il
the event of his election and re
eleotion two years hoenoo as Gov

WORKING IN PUBLIC.

)unad Uood Itcnauneration.
A Broadway shoe manufacturer was
asked what method of advertising ho
found most profitable.
"I'lacing my men near the window,"
he said, "so they can work in view of
the public. I don't know of anything
that catches the attention of the passer
by more quickly than the sight of a
demonstrator sitting close to the win
dow running a machine for dear life.
"Manufacturers of all kinds of goods
have adopted this plan. Watetmakers
put their most skilled workers on exhi
bition to show how the finest garmenta
are cut and sowed. Cigar manufactur
ers take the public Into their confidence
and let them see the process of rolling
as performed by the cleverest hands.
Men who deal in mechanical contriv
ances have found that it pays to have
at least one machine set up near a win
dow so the crowd outside may observe
the intricacy of its parts and the rapid
ity of its action. Jewelers have station
ed their most expert lapidaries within
view of the street that postsible custom
ers may see how precious stones are
cut an(d polished and set.
"It isn't everybody who can work in
public. It takes a person with good
strong nerves and concentration of
thought to do difiicult work in a show
window. I have men in my euploy
who are excellent workers, but they
get flustered when subjected to unusu
al surveillance and ruin everything
they put their hands to. I have tried
some of them as window operators, but
they can't get used to it.
"A nmu who ean run a machine at
full tilt or paint a picture or fry pan
cakes or iron a shirt in the full gaze of
the public eye and not lose his head is
an artist and worth several dollars
more a week to his employer than the
more modest individual. And ho gets it
too."--New York Sun.
