PICKENS, S. C.,:
T hurlsday, Septemnber, 18, 190:;.
The movement in behalf of r
bottor organization of Confederatc
Veterans is a commendable onc

A glance at election roturns will
show that upper South Carolina
will share coiislllcuoulSY in the di
vision of state ollicos tho next two
Let the peOplo com to togother
and throw no obstacles in tho way
of any officer elected at, the late
elections but try to make their ad -
ministrations truly successful.
Notwithstanding the unfavor
able weather, t he ivoplo have plen
tiful crops of hay, anld whtilo the
sun shines they are using every
hour judiciously trying to save it.
The conclusion of the whole
matter, canedidate-c inclu1(1(1, is
that if we had the camplign and
elections to go over, just for the
purpose of changing the result, %Ne
wouldn't do it.
" a ?
One of the facts emphasized byv
the late elections is that Pickens
county did play a most conspiciolls
part in closely contested state elec
tions, and there was more closeness
in the late stato elections than the
record has over shiow before.
" " "
When one comes to think of it,
the issues in the late eloetions fig
ured in a way that left the final
ducisions, in most instances, to the
influonces of local bearing, Occa
sionally the people vote on broad
linom, sometimes local questions
outweigh state issues.

While the cotton crop will not
materialize as it p)romised one
month ago, there will ba enough
gathered1 and sold at a fair price
to work a wonderful change ini (th(
candition and feelings of the far
mners and merchants of Pickeni
Now that the election is over, al
except that to be held on the 23rd
inst for County Supt. of Educa
tion, let us do our duty in thia
race and settle down to business il
gatheoring and marketing thenabur
dant crops that bless us this yea1
pay our debts and get ready to em
joy Christmas in an orderly way,
The people of Centrai are moe
.ing right ahead in a concerted e
fort to build a cotton mill at the
town, and the p)rospects are tha
they will scure the prizo and bc

T1he only thing remaining to 1.

she is capable of growing is
build within her borders a cotte
mill of good proportions. Th
(d0.1, the elements of growth wi
manifest themselves, and all tL
country surrounding will respon
to the touch of this industriu
awakening right in our mids!
And it is coming.
With a good school right at ou
doors, organized on the grade<
principle and under the direc
supervision of able teachers ani
trustees who are working for thi
best results, it might seem out 0
place t. urge co-operation en thl
part of parents, since they are ap
preciative of the benefits of educa
tion and the opportunities at hand
but this matter of education is the
vital question and one that ought
to receive rnore oonsideration *VeI
than it does,
Zf we are to judge by preuen
prospectsi the town of Pioken, wil
do a big business this fall in buy
ing Cotton and selling goods. Pioli
ens merchants are 1prepared for
big trade with bargains .that aj
peal to everybody1 and their good
are placed at your doors cheapE
than you can buy themn in Green
Ville of elsewhere, and their good

We have no hult-way met~ohant

The one thing needful, if wo
may be allowed to suggest it, is
that a more adequate road law be
enactel iu South Carolina. A
kind of Conventlion of tho county
dolegations to tho logislature Im
advance of the regular session
might work to advan tage in lri ng
ing t1he different countios of the
stato together on tonmo sottledl;pl)an
for general bottermtont along this
line. At any rate, the country nuo(ds
relief and the counity Sufper'visors
and Corn in issioners can't keep thu
roads in shapo without the neces
sary meanls at their comn1IandU111.
* * *
If tho olservor wants to get
some idea of the real in1portane
of Pickens, let hill consider the vt;1
u1me of business done by I'iekon'
u--rChal,ts and ho0 l will find Somen
things that will actually astollisl
him. Pickons is now tie distribIu
ting point and the market for i
large and growing and prs1)ero1"
soction of country, and every year
adds to the products of this see ion
at a surprising rate ,"all ot whicl
are marketed at. 'ickens since *rail
road facilities havi 111de it pcossi
bWle for Pickons mn(erclhtalts to c~tm
pete withl other railroad markets,
and in many instanices pay ho,tter
prics for the )roducts tmarkekd
on her streets.
So in solling and buying, it is
w(ell for houm peop le to rtOmmeOtilj(r
the advantages Pickens mcrchan ts
havo in low run ts and taxes 1and(l
generai colveninllces, a(1 in tl
foot of nearness to your own doors,
for thoso5 very mat ters enlter into
the calculations of lerchants whenl
they fix the prices on goods.
The great majority of people art.
lisposed to meet their obligations,
and the only reason that many of
them fail inl t.his is be ctuse they
orr in their calculations and col
tract for more than they c uld pay
should hnsiness proslpects matermil
ize as they expected. But unexpec ,
ed failures overtake thom, crops
fall short of apparently reasonable
oxpects tions and they art left short
with nothing to charge the short
the short comings against more
than a p)ersisten)t t.rallvaganlve
through the working season whichI
they fully recognlize and1( freely ad
mit at th'o 01nd of the year. But
be this as it may, there is never
a time too late to mend, and nowy
that the country seemsl blessedl
wvith one of the bost Crops grownm
in the past eight years, the pr'os
petls are that by the time these

the practice of more genuine oeonl

intellectual powers more than
we realize. It consumes the
vitality faster than nature can
replenish it, and we cannot tell
just what moment a temporary
