TO OUR PATRONS.
After January 1st this paper will
be au all homo print, sevon-oolumu
quarto, with plenty of news, and
space for all of our correspondents,
We hope they will help us to make
the papor interesting, and that our
readers will appreciate our efforts
enough to stand by us and will pay
Among tlio now features wo will
put on, will be a corking good serial
story which will please both
young and old, and interesting
from beginning to end. The title
is ''Abner Daniel," und the plot is
laid in North Georgia, and depicts
"cracker" life toa"T." It is a
storj in which wit anil wisdovn play
an important part, and the quaint
philosophic sayings of "Uncle Abner
Daniel'' will bring a snnie, for
he never sees the worst side?"with
him the darkest cloud lias si silver
Through the thread of this romance
runs a good love stojy. You
should read it. Watch for the
opening chapters, and you will net
rest until you get the next.

The other day a little girl?she
couldn't have boen more than three
or four years old?walked along the
sidewalk in front of this newspaper
office. She was alone, having walked
ahead of hor mother, who had stopped
to chat with an acquantance.
Sho was a beautiful child, with
rosy cheoks and laughing eyes, and
as she looked in at the window the
editor, out of the goodness of his
heart ana ins lovo 01 cnuuren, tnrew n
kiss. The litlle lady smiled, even
coyly, and looked as if nhio might like
to throwTss if she dared. As 'bo
" .^ftlJteAalong, slowly, she kept looking
back and smiling, and the editor
threw more kisses. Finally, as sho
was about to pass boyoud the range
of vision from the window; the little
girl threw the editor one kiss and
then ran away laughing.
Tho editor went back to his work.
A minute or two later lie chanced to
look up, and the littlo girl had come
back and was peeping in at tho window,
v%ith mischief scintillating in
every glance, waiting for another
kiss. It was given with a will. Tho
little girl laughed, and then ran away
again and did not come back any
It was a desperate llirtation, although
the editor and the little girl
had never soen each other before ko
far as the editor knows.
As the editor finally went hack to
his work, lighter in heart than before,
he moralized to himself after this
fashion: The children of today are
bat the parents of the men and women
of tomorrow. How earlv in life do
wo display the characteristics of our
after years. That littlo girl will in
the day? to come break the hearts of
men, juut for the very love of it, and
will then finally make Rome man supremely
happy. JSo mote it be.

An Atlanta man has petitioned the

Libraries in Pickens County.
1 am sum the people of Pic ken 8
county nre interested in education
n.ul every educational movement; and
as Pickens county is my bumo, 1 fee!
interested in any movement that will!
be for the betterment of its people, j
But there is one thing that I wish to|
call attention to, in which Pickens is
aomowhat behind. This is in regard
to libraries for public schools.
At the last session the Legislature
passed au "Act to Encourage tho Es-j
tablishment nf Libraries in tho Pub-j
lie School* of tho Rural Districts."]
This act '-vas to go into effect aa soon
as tho State Board met and adopted
regulations, rides, and a list of books
Soon aflor the adjournment of the
General Assembly, the Skate Board
met and adopted a list of 200 ! ooka
from which the selections should bo
made. This list and the State's up
propritfttiiHi ttuuu ui'uumo iiYHimmr,
and by tbe first of April the schools
began to order librarian. From April j
to December, nino months, nearlyI
100 libraries have been established io
the schools of South Carolina. Under
the provisions of the act, ouch
library cost at least $!i0, and ?stiraat i
ing an average price for the books, it
means that, about ?12,000 have boon ;
invested in 80,000 good books, wl.ich
have boon pieced in tlio coach o/
thousands, of boys and girls whose!
reading matter was very limited and
poorly adapted to thoir needs. More
libraries will bo established before
tho close of tho your.
The act provides for 12 libraries in
each county. Some counties have ul-,
ready their full quota, and have
raised their private subscription anticipating
next year's appropriation
by tho General Assembly.
I notice that .six of these libraries
httvo been established in Pickens
countj. It is allowed six more li
braries under tho act, provided they
l'u f-Htabliehed before ahe iirstof January.
It seems that Pickens county
should be iu the lend and have her
full quota by that time. We have a
number of splendid rural schools in
Pif'.kariH nnnnt.v whinli nr? in nnml of
libraries. Tlio amount necessary for
such, that is the part to bo luiueit by
private subscription, could bo mined
in (i short while, uod this would out
good reading material in thc<<6 schools
which is very much needed. It is
very evident that a workman can uot
do good work without good sharp,
tools It is tho same with our school |
children; they can not do good work
without sharpening their intellect'
with good reading, and one of I ho
ways to do this in to ^ivo them
Homo good book a to real.
1 would like Jo Miugo.st a way in
which these libraries might he raised:
As it. in only a short tmio until the
Christmas holidays, some program
might bo arranged for and invito the :
patrons in and take up a colletition, i

tho ten dollars could he i uisod in >1
comparatively Abort timo. Then the
County Superintendent would add
the $10 from the school funds to that
district, and them the $10 from the i
ttfato could bo easily )iad, I hope
it.at Pickens county will be in thn
