To our Many Sympathizing Friends:
Libe Nbobe of old, Gainesville,
Georgia's Queen City, sits weeping,
for her children. Clouds of sorrow,
scenes of desolation, hearts biurdened
with gripf, are everywhere abont us.
As though sorrowful for the destruc

seem to weep with rs, Scarcely a
ray of sunshmne has pierced the leaden
skies since that fatteful Monday,,June

drenolhed wvth 'ftpare from ths skies."
Out of the plouds of gloom and satd

however, a voice has conme, bidding us
be0 of good cheer. G.~eorgia's great
heart has responded nobly to oir call
for aid and from pity an hafmlet

The K. of P. Ball Game.
A full amount of the interesting
proceedings of Wednesday last will
be found elsewhere in our columns.
But the account of the day would
be incomplete without at least a run.
ning account of the baseball game
between cines made up from K. of
F's. from Pickens and Easley lodgos.
An immene crowd witnessed the
game, which was intensely interest
It was a friendly contest from be
ginning to end, and if there were
any "scraps" we never h6ard of them.
It may be that there was a strong
depire for a "kicking machine" by
the Easley team at the conclusion of
the game --a sort of automatic self
kicker after the model of a "Schnapps"
The Kasley team caine up on the
2:40 train, arrayed in their uniforms,
and were a formidable looking team
to go up against, and they had every
appearance of being the "eat 'ei up"
kind. In fact it has been hinted that
the Pickens "sluggers" became a lit
tle shaky in the knees at, first sight
of the Easley team.

In this inning, Magisftat@ John F.

were scored in this inning, and the

thing like a blue streak in the t::ail of
WVe cannot go into detail of every
inning. Callaham, Davis, Johnson
an-1 Gontry starred for Easley; Ash
more, Bivins, Harris, Folger and
Alexander for Pickens. Bivins rolled
up the biggest score of any individual
player on the field, having four'
rounds to his credit. It is said that
Folger, who is usually very indiff'er
emnt about a game of baseball at any
time, positively "suffered enjoyment"
oni this occasion.
Competent jud .;es say the game
was won by Ashimore's swift pitohing,
and lost to Easloy by Callahamn's
wveak pitching. It is psitively as
sorted by eye-witnesses that many of
the balls pitched by Calibham actu
ally had whiskers brfore they reached
the batter, and thus retarded the
speed of what might otherwise have
been a swift ball.
Soore-10 to 4, in favor of Pickens.
To say the least of it, the game
was intensely inter'estintg, and the
young men of Easloy and Pickens
were thoughtful in arranging the
game for the entertainment of the
large crowd of poople in town oni
Pickens is awaiting a challenge
from the Easley teamn for a second
game of a series to be played during
the summier. It is rumored that
Easley will be thoughtful enough
next game to provide themselves with
solid hats, nine hamper baskets .of
varying sizes, and an equal number
of tar buckets.
Old1 sotlers' Day.
When the bright summer suinshine
of last W~ednesday (a perfect summer
day) b~roke oveor the hills and a little
later thIe people began to come from
every quarter to do tribute to the
grandest soldiery that ever marched
against enemy, the people of Pickens
realized that the biggest day of the
year was upon themt.
Andl ivell (1id these people respond
to every call made upon them to give
substantial expression to their ininate
hospitality, for thbey had been arouised
to the immense proportions of the
day and they left nothing undone to
make the day a success
But it is to the ladies of the Daugh
hers of the Confederacy that is due
the grand success of this memorial
(ay. They worked and stinted not,
and the dlay closed a revelation to
every thinking naan in Pickenls.
The crowd was so large, so much
greater than was expected, that there
was some unavoidable dlelay in start.
tng the program, but at about 10
o'clock the procession formed at the
depot headed by the Liberty Band
and followed by the school children
and the assembled veterans and a
large crowd of spectators,. and pro.
coeded to the coutrt house whbere the
veterans wore comnforta~bly seated, and
ajs mvany others as could crowd in
Uarring a slight delay, tlle exercih
ses commenced das fixed by program.
Reov. J. E. Foster opened thedy'
program with a touchinig and im.
prespiye prayer asking God's mercy
upon the veterans and invoking God's
aid In t'iat greater cause that will
never be lost to the soldiers enlisted
under the leadership of Christ-the
Captain of our Salvation. He prayed
for the success of the day and moyedl
the peop~le by lijs egrneat L IUpal fow

C0l. J. A. Hoyt, of Greenville, wvas
the honored guest of the Veterans

that intrepid leader In war and .re
oilled - his lasting. sorvices through
the days of reeonstrooidon and te the
representative of hi4 people in the
highest council of the. nUtlon.
Col. Hoyt's speech was a ohasth
and eloqoent one, and it reached 'th(
heart of every old veteran and mA&d
the younger people approlato anid
understand how and why, in som(
measure, their fathers fought so well,
and their mothers endured, without
complaining, the hardships of war.
General M. L. %onhatn, of A.nder.
son, was the representative on thi
occasion of the Daiehters of the Con
federacy. It is impossible to do jup
tice to his eloquent address whi. I
came, as he took occasion to say him
self, hom 'the very fulnemi of hli
heart. Gentral Bonham is a mos
earnest and impressive speaker, ani
warming up to the full appreciatio
of his theme, he spoke words of truth
picturing the works of the soldiers o
the Southern army saying that theil
achievements will live because they
fought for living principles
they were men of our own countri
and not the hired minions of a gov
ernment with unlimited resourcei
backed by the nations of the world
General Bonham's address will bt
remembered by all who had the pleas
ure of hearing it.
It is a matter to be regretted tha
the other speakers on the progran
were not present. We do not koev
the'auses of their absence but knov
that it was a disappointment tha
they were not here-a disappoint
ment shared especially by the Daugh
ters who planned and carried these
exercises through an an addition t<
the plans of the veterans themselves
Two features of the exercises, no
printed in the program were the ad
dress of welcome by Mr. W. T. Me
Fall, Intendant of Pickens, attende<
by the waving of white flags by twi
little girls, indicating that the towt
had surrendered to the veterans ami
the visitors, and the reading of somi
original verses by a lady of Pickens
entitled "The Old - Canteen," whiel
were most, appropriate to the occa
