"LOOK TO YOUR INTEREST."
Let every tirue sol of Pickens
Cou nty, as the time approaches
for holding the Congressional Coi
vention, keep before his mind the
niameic of Col. R. E. 'owen. It is
true that none can vote Save the
six delegates that are to be pres

nothin g InisF. however, in look i'g
with great intecest to the probable
nomination of Pickens' noble son.

candid(1ate foir the Presidlener of
these UnIited Sta:tebs, heo is abi ouit
to win. Desper'ate (efforts have
been mI'ade to (cut shiort his nomi)1
nation, bu11t it seem s th at all s uch
will fail to pr'evenit it. His influt
en'ice, availabil ity' and wonderfulI
p)owersN of head and heart, recoim
mendl( him to the high position, in
which ouur people wish to lace
him. The wonderful ~Johni Kelly,
who would have his way in the
matter has thus far' signally failed.
Well for him too. It is high time
that ourt people were crushinug to

of letting one man with his clam

be the niation'i&coice.
