PICKENS, S. C.:
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1900.
GRAND JURY PRESE19TMENT.
We have passed on all bills handed
to us by the solicitor and made such
return thereon as our best judgment
A special committee of our body
has visited the poor farm and, from
their report we find that there are
now twelve white and four negro
paupers. They seem to be well fod
The crop at the poor farm is very
good. The supervisor is construct
ing a very nice residence on the farm
and now has lumber on hand for two
We recommend that the white and
negro paupers should be kept more
apart than they now are, and recom
mend that proper steps be taken to
carry out this recommendation, and
we further recommend that the
steward of the poor farm be required
to labor on the farm; Inasmuch as re
ports have reached us that some o:
the inmates he.ve'boen unmercifully
whipped, we recommend that the
steward be not allowed to whip th<
paupers unmercifully; and we espeoi
ally recommend that the proper au
thorities look carefully into this mat
ter, and determine if this is true, and
if so, that the same be discontinued
We call attention to a very bat
place in the Easley and Cox Bridg
road, near William McMahan's place
caused by a dam being placed besid
the road, which obstincts the natural
course of the water. This road hai
been almost impassable for severa
months. We recommend that stepE
be taken by the county board of corm
missioners to have this and all othe
places of a similar nature repaired a
We recommend that the solicito,
be Instructed to look into the matteri
whlqh were reported wrong in count3
affaits, which appear in the report ol
the special investigating committee
appointed by the Gjovernor, and sec
that proper steps are taken to recovei
all moneys unlawfully paid out.
At .the last session of Court we
called the attention of the supervisoi
and commissioners to the need of
sanitary house or closet for the ac
commiodation of tht Court and counta
officers, and as such building or ac
commodations have not been pro
vided and as no reasons have beer~
given why this has not been done, we
respectfully recommend that the
county board of commissioners be
instructed to proceed at once and
erect a good and substntial privy
convenient to the Court House.
Also we recommend that necessary
Improvement to the chimneys of the
Court flouse be made, so that they
will not smoke up the offices.
And, Inasmuch as witnesses are re
quired to wait In the Court Hlouse
corridor on the grand jury, and this
is often very uncomfortable, especially
in cold weather, we recommend that
the corridor be inclosed at once with
double glass dooro and that a sto'e
for heating purposes be placed in thc
Court House hall.
It having been reported to us thai
several parties who have been con
victed have not paid their fines anc
baye not served sentence, we recomn
mend that all such parties be forth
with apprehended and made to exe.
Ice itheir penalties.
We recommend that our expert, T
3 (uldini, be paid the sum of $0
~ i seirvices during this year.
1obeg to extend our thanks tc

'~e' f the Court for courtesies

Mrs. M. J. Chapman, of Liberty,
lins sold her entire stock of millinery
to Mrs. Rosa Callaway, of Atlanta,
Ga., who will continue the business
at the old stand of Mrs. Chapman,
in Liberty, S. C. Mrs. Calla way has
had considerable experience- in the
millinery business and is an expert
trimmer and has had charge of the
trimming department of some of the
largest dealers in the city of Atlanta.
Mrs. Chapman takes this method of
thanking her friends for their pat
ronage in the past, and in trausrer
ing the business to Mrs. Callaway
she fee's that she has placed thi
bniness in the hands of one who i6
better prepared to serve you than shc
has been. She therefore commende
Mrs. Callaway to all of her customers
and friends, and trust that they wil
give her the patronage so liberally
given me in the past.
Mrs. M. J. Chapman.
STARVING TO DEATH.

ozOoPER FAMILY REvNION.
On Saturday, September 22d, the
whole generation of Loopers of this
county, together with their. offspizigs
th tt are residents of other sections,
met at Cross Roada 6hurch for, a
family reunion. - ev. B. E. Grandy,
who was present, by sp6oial request,
conducted religious services.
It i Eald that the dinner was (h
finest, of the greatest variety and the
most that was ever on the ground.
After dinner photographs were made
of those present.
One of those preseht has written
up the event in a poetical vein which
is hereto appended.
Sept. mbe: 22d d.aw ;ied bright -:d olei
With a few cloud- for away,
And the people gathered from fa - anl
At C , Roads church that day.
Tae Looper family great and small,
Were to meet in a grand reenior;
Old and young, one and all,
Were invited to this commur.'on.
Descendan.ts of Joseph Looper, decep'sed,
Were cal'ed to meet once more
before their spirits were releaL-d
To cross to that ever green shore.
Bright and early the people began
To ro' in from distant places
Pleasant it was to meet aga'n
And see each other's faces.
Quite a crowd had soon au -ive1
And each the other was grc Aing,
Yet 80omec by sickness were deprived
Of this most happy meeting.
The crowd assembled in the house
To praise and worship God,
1 noble ause to espouse,
. And hear His blessed word.
The music renCered was very good,
The sermon preached was fine;
The people were in a happy mood
And the sermon on the right line.
Several made short talks
Of the lives of loved ones gone;
Of their vicissitndes and wa'ks
And things which they had done.
Thay then shook hands around
In fellowship and love,
And a!', I hope, are bound
For that bright home aboye.
When the ; )rvce1 were ended
We all to the table stroll-d:
Boxes, baskets and trunks descendcd
And out the dinner rolled.
And such a sumptuous feast
Mortal eyes seldom behold,
And all enjoyed it from greatest to leas
The half can never be told.
Over four hundred people were there
To enjoy this bountiful lunch;
Such an opportunity is rare
To see such a lively bunch.
But the day soon passed away
And they all had ceased to roam;
IHad done their do and said their say
And so they started home,
