URRMAH FOR LIl FRItTY!
The fobiowiig is a clipping from
lihe "Pickens Sentinel,'' of 26th
inst., regarding a subscription to
our1 ne11w R-ailroad:
We heard a prominent citizen of
LAberty townslip say recently that
that township ought to vote a sub
Scription to the Carolina, Cunl)er
land Gap and Chicago Railroad,
because the township line runs
within three-quarters ot a mile of
'asley Station, and Liberty
township would be as much bene
fitted by the building of the road as
Easley township would.- The road,
in fact, runs through Lilbcrty
township three or four miles
between Easley Station and Pick
ens Court House, and near the line
all the way from the Anderson line
to Eaeley Ststion. What d you
SaV Liberty ? Let us hear from
you.
Let us l:ear from you too Liber
ty. Can't Ehasley, Liberty, and
Pickins all unite in their effoi ts to
carry out this gran(I scheme?
When that mass meeting is called,
let each township be well repre
sented. Get all the citizens stirred
up with regard to this matter, and
let all go forward, in one grand
body, in an honest effort to devel
op the great material interests of
our county. Read what Cen. Ha
good la4 to say about the road, in
his interview with a reporter, to be
found on the 1st page.
OUR PICKENS LATTER.
PWiciN~s C. 1IL, Jani. 30, 1884.
I.,:An MEssENGR : It affords
your Pickens readers much pleas
nire to look up[on1 your neCw and
largely folded (ress this week.
You must have caught the idea of'
vinlarginig yourself from the girls,
who they say can wrap a whole b)olt.
o f cloth arinoun id seventy-five pounds
of sw eetnss. With your eyes and(
ears doubled and your ton~gue twice
as long as before, we think we can
safely say you will be dIoubly wel
come to all your readers and will
hafve to double the size ofyour p)ock
.ts. Success to you in your new
A long court has just closed and
lawyers and officers are glad to
welcome sweet rest. Only one
criminal case wams tried after those
reportedl in your last issue, the
State against Elias Reese for high
and1( aggravated assault and batte
ry. Hie was found guilty and sen
tenced' to 2 mhonthis in jail. On the
hial side of the court quite a numfl
her of caaes were' diairdsed nr'
Court adjourned Tuesday mat 12
o'clock.
Pickens is still looking up. Mr.
A. 11. McDani'el has opened a
stock of goods at the old Kirksey
stand, and starts off .well. le
will soon erect a fine dwelling
house in town, and will pitch his
tent finalI3 in l'ickens.
M r. C. W. Lay occupies the Mc
Fall dwelling now, and brings 3
young la(lies to adorn our society
and help out the College.
Miss Lizzie Boggs, of Liberty,
is speakinig of opening a Millinery
store here soon. We will gladly
welcome her. There are girls
enough iere to wear any quantity
of bonnets and hats, &c.
'lhe Thornley House hore off
the palm for good dinners during
court week. A turkey every day
an1(l Sweet-toothlied (lesert is eniouyh
to wI g(l den opinions for any
hotel.
Dr. W. J. Uramlette, formerly of'
Greenville has moved here to prac
tieeI his professiol, anld we Wish
him success.
lIon. J. E. Boggs, wife and boy
are off to see friends and relatives
in Williamston for the next few
(lays.
If Pickens continues to improve
as rapidly all the year as it starts
out, she will not know herself by
the end of 1884. The teachers of
the Pie(lmont College are doing
more to huild up the townt than
anything else. Tlhe cry of new
comers i5s, "we heard of your cli
mate and N our school andl we pitch
our tenits amiiong you to uichool our
childhren. " Let them continue to
come. A warm hearted social
community and capitad educational
advantages are standlinig i nvita
tions. Mrs Riley. an accomplish
ed musician has charge of the mu
sical dlepartmnent, and Miss Mary
Riley is teaching the youth ful ideas
how to shoot. Th'le college is more
flourish nng than ever before. The
roll numbers 137, .52 of whom are
classical students. A class is be
ing prepared to enter the Junior
class of the South Carolina College
this Fall. Other studlents are yet
to come andl last year's small crop
is not telling much against the in
terest mnanifestedl in education.
This is right, let corn and cotton
dry up, but the fertile mind should
never be neglected. T1his town is
one of the very best places in the
State to build up a fine college
and1 all indications point to one of
the best educational centrei of the
State. Our school is something
for the town and whole county to
justly boast of and point to with
clie' fhipger' of pride. Its present
success now' points to a still rnore
prosperous future. C.
