LAYING OF THE
CORNER STONE
With Masonic Ceremonies and
in the Presence of a Large
Gathering.
Last Thursday as our press
was whirling out the paper, peo
ple began to arrive in town to
witness the impressive ceremo
nies in laying the corner stone
of the handsome new Methodist
church now being built. At 10
o'clock a large crowd had assem
l led at the new church and the
ceremonies at once entered upon.
The Grand Master of the State,
Mr. Jas. R. Johnston, could not
attend and he issued a dispensa
tion authorizing the Keowee
Lodge of this place to lay the
stone. Mr. R. T. Hallum was
master of ceremonies for the
fraternity and he was assisted
by a numbei of the members of
this lo3ge and also from the
Easley lodge.
Rest. G. F. Kirby, the pastor
of,-he church., made a brief
tatement and some announce
* ments in connection with the
ew church and led in prayer.
Rev. W. M. Duncan, the pre
g elder of this district deliv
a most eloquent and admir
le address on the value and
s ifi ' ertak
inl on the part of people in any
c3mmunity. He especially em
phasised the importance and
value of churches to the world.
It was a most excellent :.ddress
and we very much regret that
space will not permit the publi
ation of it..ieV would
inot even attempt to publish an
outline of it f
vioence to e beautiful chain

ch important and future

GRACE
M. E. CHURCH, SOUTH.
1911.
Thinking the people, and es
pecially the Methodist peopler
would be most interested in
knowing something of the past
of this land mark, of its begin
ning, struggles, progress and
prosperity, the most of the arti
cle is devoted to a brief history
of the church.
Everybody rejoices with these
noble people in the advance step
.hey have taken and extend best
'gishes for the early accomplish
inent of this most worthy task.
A sHORT HIsTORY OF THE CHURCH
PREPARED AND READ BY
HON'. T, J. MAULDIN.
The history of this church and
of Methodism in this community
is inseperably a part of the his
tory of the community, and the
wonderful development of this'
section, as its growth is traced
from -the primitive forest to a
cultured citizenship with envi
ronment conducive to peace and
contentment and with new pos
sibilities ceaselessly pressing for
their proper attention, speaks a
tribute to the pioneer Methodists
~f this section, and to the unflag
~ig zeal of their followers, as
'o words can tell.
Be it said to the everlasting
praise of the early settlers of this
country that it it is not recorded
that they ever offered opposition
to the preaching of the gospel
by any preacher-they were not
of that class which separation
from the centers of education
and Christian influences could
drag into forgetfulness of the
true God-they bore the seeds of
-the living gospel in their hearts
and measured their conduct by
the laws of love and honor, and
when the preacher came into
their midst he found a response
to his message and appeals in
behalf of the gospel of life, lim
ited only by the abilities of those
people and the necessarily re
strained views of the require
ments laid upon them for relig
ious purposes.
While our people in this sec
tion lived in somewhat crude
circumstances, they were people
of the broadest charTy, given to
hospitality, loving honor and
proving faithful to their high
4ea~ing as citizens and sovereigns
amongst a free people. They
wrpeople of honor, and had a
i~~tpclaim the priceless herit
a.nbe aestry; and
well did they live up to the high
charge and responsibility of pre
serving unto themselves and
posterity a true strain of unawed
and unbought white citizenship.
In peace and in war this sec
tion has contributed her full
share of men and ideas to the
preparation of the whole people
for the reception and enjoyment
of privileges with which God
has favored the section, and the
written history and that yet to
be written will save unto the
men and women of this commu
nity a place and a distinction
that will be unchallenged by
time and unfading in its glory.
Through years of ceaseless
strivings, the little band of
Methodist people, organized
something over forty years ago,
have come to this good day with
hearts re-baptised with hope,
with membership somewhat in
creased, though faithful saints,
worn out in the service of God,
have heard the call and gone to
their true reward. How glori
ous would have been their joy
could they have seen the frui
tion of their hopes upon earth,
and heard the benediction of a
grateful people on them, as our
hearts' best blessings pour forth
in gratitude to-day for the in
spiration and faith they saved
unto us by their example and
their professions that never dis
appointed.
When we cast back, upon
those years which have served
in the making of religious sen
timent in the community -
remember that the little, wooden
church which gives place to this
larger edifice iwas always open
for every Chrisiaig denomina
tion that desired to use it; that
fro ?sm t plpit have fallen
words of comfoft, wisdom and
of living peace from Baptist and
Presbyterian ministers, able and
elevating in their discourses, as
well as from, some of the lead
ing preachers of the Methodist
denomination- that its pulpit
stood always open for every
preacher of the Living Christ
I dare say there is not an indi
vidual in all this village that
does not feel a pang of sorrow
to see the little wooden structure
forever disappear. But It must
yield to a building that will
adequately speak the enthusi
asm and religious zeal and the
hopes of the Methodist denomi
tion here. That little wooden
church :was the first church
built within the limits of our
municipality.
By the South Carolina Consti
tution of -1868, the territory then
comprising Pickens district was
divided into the present counties
of Pickens and Oconee, and cer
tain commissioners were desig
nated to buy land and locate a
county-seat to be known as
Pickens, In that year, 1868,.
the town of Pickens was sur
veyed, and this locality was
chosen by thoughtful Method
ists as an appropriate place for
a church building; the place was
secured and, immediately there
after, definite Eplans were inau
gurated which speedily matured
into the erection of the little
building soon to give place to
this larger and more -modern
structure.
In the year 1870, Rev. G. T.
Harmon was assigned to preach
in this county, the charge hay
Ing been supplied for a while by
Rev. Fletcher Smith and Wmn.
Bowman; and during that year
the firat Methodist church estab
lished in Pickens was dedicated
by the then pre Ading elder, Rev.
A. B. Stephens, a man of great
ability and fine address. Rev.
G. T. Harmon was succeeded by
Rev. 0. L. DuRant, as pastor of
the circuit of which Pickens
church was part, serving till
1874, when R. W. Barber was
assigned to this circuit as pastor.
Rev. R. W. Barber was suc
ceeed by Rev. J. Q. Stockman,
who served a part of the year
1875, in conjunction with Rev.
W. H. Ariail, specially assigned
to the work. Rev. A. W. Walker
served thie charge acceptably.
Rev. S. P. H. Elwel, a preacher
of strength and effectiveness4
served the charge from 1880:to
1884, assisted on the -t'hen
large circuit by the gifted/'J. W.
Daniel, then a young inister.
Rev. W. H. Englar also
preached under assign nent at
this church for a season.
Rev. S. P. H. Elwell was suc
ceeded by "Rev W. H Kirton,
who was followed by v.J. C.
Dnvs Davse in fno ed by
Rev. J. F. Anderson, who was
succeeded by Rev. A.W.Walker,
who, as his second term of ser
vice on the same charge, served
for one year. Then followed
Rev. B. 0. Berry, who served i
one year, he being followed by
Rev. 0. L. DuRant, who re
mained one year as his second
assingment, and was followed
by Rev. G. R. Shaffer, whose t
ervice lasted two years, he being
succeeded by Rev. W. M.Hardin
for two years, Rev. J. S. Porter
for two years.
These were followed by Rev.
R. R. Dagnall, Rev. 0. M.
Abney, Rev. J. F. Bryant. Rev.
D. D. Jor and Rev. N. G. Bal
lenger. Ten followed the gifted c
and lamented Rev. J. C. Yongue,
whose Christian zeal and beau
tiful character were just begin
ning to unfold to this people,
when God called him to his re
ward almost from the very
pulpit.
His unexpired year was filled I
most acceptably by Rev. J. Paul
Patton. b
The annual conference of 1910
which met.in Charleston, S.-C.,
appreciating the importance of
this promising field, the oppor
tunity for great good to be ac
complished here through the a
Methodist church being pressed 0
upon the attention of that great
organization through the efforts
of our present presiding elde, a
Rev. W. M. Duncanandiirtthe
Providence of G-aT and. to the
pleasure ofuis people, irrespec- e
e.@@!Uaominations, our pres
ent able pastor, Rev. George F.
a
Kirby, was sent toinister unto a
s. To him and to our present t
presiding elder, aid to their
faithful predecessors, we. owe a
debt of gratitude.
Mr. Duncan sought to prepare
this people to realize their needs
and the opportunities and possi-. e
bilities of our church -other ti
preachers had sought to promote
the spirit of just denominational
pride-the time was ripe. and n
when the day for action arrived
Mr. Kirby, with energy and sac
a
rifice, and, working in that spirit
of devotion which characterizes a
the true minister of Christ, -
sought and received the encour
agement and the needed support n
by which the building and equip
ment of this beautiful "House F
of God" will be accomplished.f
In its building there are Aio
laggards. Every member of h
this church has helped in some
way toward insuring its speedly ~
completion and dedication to the.
service of God. And the grati- ~
tude of this church's member
ship goes out to many who have
contributed freely of their sub- c
stance, though not members of F
the Methodist church, to make
this work a success.
This attempt at history would
not be complete without refer-t
ence to those presiding elders
whose zeal for Christ and ad- a
ministrative a~bility have helped
us on through the years of our
growth. A. B. Stephens, S. B.
Jones, J. Walter Dickson, J~ . O.
Wilson, T. J. Clyde, J. B. Will
so R. A. Child, E. P. Taylor f
and our present able and conse
crated presiding elder, Rev. WV.t
M.Duncan,form a galaxy of men
whose superiors could hardly be
chosen from the South Carolina h
Conference for able and faithful
service. They labored amongst ~
us, studied our needs and, in a
spirit of love and with faith un- a
ceasing, strove to help pastors
and people to higher ideals and
better achievements. We are a
people peculiarly blessed, and ing
this hour of happy accomplish- tl
ments, we join hands with ALL
rlE PEOPLE, of whatever creed,a
and lift our hearts to God in the
prayer of faith that the united
agencies of the church of God
may move forward to the vic
tory everlasting.

Vhat Piekens Needs and Her
Many Advantages - Let's
Pull for Our Town.
This paper is looking out for
ie material advancement of
'ickens and Pickens county.
Ve are not concerned about pol
;ics just now. It is time
nough to discuss such things.
'he thin-s wNe should be most
iterested in just now is the
etterment of the town and
ounty. And to this end we
ereby call unon our business
ien to lay aside political opin
)ns and party differences and
t us come together as one man
or the best interes s materially
Dr the town.
Pickens needs iore people in
, and we must have them.
'he last census gave us some
iing over 800, and we must
egin now to at least double this
umber before anol her census
; taken. How are we going
do it?
Pickens needs waterworks.
'he insurance rates on property
re enormous, and the reduction
a this item alone with water
-orks would go a long way to-. I
ard installing a plant. How
re we going to do it?
Pickens needs a laundry. i
[oney is going out of this town
verv week for laundrymg I
rhich could be'"rt and spent
niong us. Shere is reason
rhy we ould not have I1ftp-ip
)-dat laundry, but how are 1
-eoing to get it?
Pickens needs more business (
ien and business houses. This I
)wn is the best situated of any
the county for business, as is
videnced by the fact of how I
iose whc are here are prosper- <
ig. There have been fewer
lures here among the busi- I
ess men than in any other 1
>wn in the county, We have <
larger territory to draw from 1
)r trade than any other town,
nd being the county-seat
rould be in the lead in everyi
aterprise. Already we have
iercantile houses here whichi
ill compare with -ny in theI
edmont section. PAnything
com a pin to an automobile or
eamn engine can be( bought
ere, and at prices equal to if
ot lower than many of our 1
eighboring towns and cities. 1
But there is no reason why we:
rould not have more of them. 1
[ai street should be lined fromi
ne end to the other with first
ass, up-to-date business houses.
ut how are we going to get
iem? 4
Pickens should not let the
olly line which it is proposed
>build from Abbeville to Eas-1
y stop) at Fasley. We need it
nd should have it and our busi
ess men should see that its
arminus is here, What are we
ing to do about it?1
Now is the time to talk about
ese things. If we wait they4
la be beyond our grasp.
We should have a board of 1
~ade or some such organization
f the business men of the town 1
advertise the advantages we
ave to offer those who are I
eking a better field. Will not 1
me one or more of our business
1n take the initiative and call1
public mass meeting to con
der the ways and means by
rhich we can do more for our
aterial advancement? We will
ladly publish anything along
is line and urge our people to
What say you, fellow towns- 1
en, shall we advance or shall<

Yes. that railroad you have
been talking about is coming,
and when it comes it will be
from Greenville to Knoxville.
The Eastatoe Gap is the best
crossing in the State. It has
been surveyed from Holly
Springs church in this county
to Rosman, N. C., and shows
the best grades anywhere on
the mountains. The distance
is 18 miles, then from Rosman
to Webster, N. C:, 'about 50
iniles. One branch of the Ten
aessee heads near Webster and
runs within a few miles of Ma
ryville, Tenn., with a road al
ready built from there to Knox
ville, a distance of * about 60
niles. Then from Holly Springs
>hurch to Marietta about 18 j
miles down the Oolenoy and j
3aluda valleys through as fer- i
Ale land as any to be found in
he State, with timber in abun- i
lance on each side. This is a
iatural gateway, not a ripple e
>n either stream, This is the a
nost direct and most practica- r
)le route to Knoxville, and will
>e the shortest route to the coal a
ields of Tennessee, and will t
ross the mountains through the a
inest body of timber that can t
>e found. It will pass through E
t section of country unsurpassed r
or scenery, mountain resorts, r
vater power and many other re- 0
ources; a section which badly 1
eods developing. This road
vould cross the one at Rosman
eading from Brevard to Lake e
oxoway, and one at Sylva near a
Webster from Asheville to Mur- b
)hy. This route will be.as near a
o Asheville as the present one a
tud more than fifty miles near
Ir to Eroxville. Taking the
ine from Greenville toiiietta
nd from Maryville to Knoxville t
vhich has already been built, 0
here would not be but little overs
me hundred miles to be built. i
Che people along the Saluda and .
)olenoy would welcome the
-oad but they are resting very 4,
,asy about it, knowing that so
nany inducements in locatiod
nd advantages are in this roume. p
here are wire pullers all thro' i
he mountains trying to getsuvs s
reyors to go by every little town c
s why this road has -not been
>uilt; but thie crossin~ of' the c
Blue Ridge is the tradble. The
farietta road hasfunm up to the i
oc~taf the mountains and i
topped?it ever goes fur- -e
~her it will be fi'onm Marietta up
he Oolenoy to Eastatoe Gap.t
t is only a matter of time, and
hat not far distant, ,when a
'oad will go through that gap. e
A. road has been built from i
Tnoxville to Sevierville, about g
5 miles, and I understand the
>bject is to come by Brevard to
farietta. It could come by t
Waynesville and Rosman thro' i
he Eastatoe Gap and to Green- e
ile and be as near as by Bre- e
yard with such a survey as they 3
vould have to make to cross the
nountains, This survey would c
robably not be as good from r
evierville to Rosman as the
ther from Maryville to Rosman [
mad might be longer, but would
>e far better than by Brevard on
rcount of crossing the moun
ains.

Wr. Looper Explains the Death
of Waddy Porter.
Ed. The Sentinel:-I wish to
make some corrections through
rour paper in regard to the acci
lent which caused the death of
Ir. Wad. Porter.
It was stated in your paper
hat Mr. Porter and I in com
any with two boys had started
out hunting.
I wish to say. that Mr. J. R.
Ieorge and I started out to hunt.
Vlr. Porter had gone to Easley,
ut came home later and hunted
is up. He and two boys came to
is one mile from home. We
vere not expecting Mr. Portter,
out were glad to see him, be
ause he was always cheerful
,nd enjoying life. We had
tunted together about two
tours; all five..of us were walk
ng along enfoying the sport.
Mr. Porter and I were walk
rig along the bank of a ditch,
-ery near each other. A rabbit
uddenly made its appearance, 1
nd then turned square to our
ight. I
Mr. Porter was on the left
nd nearest the ditch. Each of
s turned to fire at the rabbit,
nd Mr, Porter, starting b jump
he ditch, struck the muzzle of
iy gun, and at the same time
iy finger being on the ham
ier, It started back. The bar I
n the end of the gun knocked
iy thumb off, which caused the I
un to fire.
I was born and raised in Pick
ns county, as many know. I <
m nearly 51 years old, and
ave handled a gun 35 years, I
nd never before have I had any i
ccident with a fire-arm. .
It has been reeported since i
dis accident happened that I t
ave shot anywhere from four 1
six Men. It anyo
f o - e man that I have put a 1
hit into let him bring the man i
1. I have always been careful i
h my gun. I have seen men
ot and have been shot myself, I
ut have never put a shot in
nv man before.
I would like for Mr. "They I
ay". to bring up these men I
ave shot or keep his mouth a
but. The truth about this ac-'
ident is bad enough. You have
ot the truth, and that is all I
an bear.
In re -ard P 1orter 1 want,
m say that h
est Chris11an-hearted men
ver had any dealings with It
as been reported that Mr. Por
er -and I had a difficulty a short
time before. This is not so.
Ve were good friends, and so
ontinued until we parted in
his life. If this world was
liled with men like tNir. Porter
'They Say" would be no more,
In conclusion, I wish to say
a th~ose that tell this and that,
e sure your sin will find you

Ben Tiilman's Fight.
In all the minor Dolitical bat
tles that are going on through
out the cpuntry, as a prelude to
the major strugale in 1812, the
outcome of none will be more
i nteresting to Washington than
the result of the fight for re
election being made by Senator
Ben Tillman in South Carolina.
Although he has suffered two
strokes of paralysis, Senator
Tillman's spirit has not been
nrushed. He is the same. "Pitch
Eork Ben" that Washington has
grown to love since those early
lays when, rugged and bluff, he
irst cane to the capital to hurl
aimself . into controversy with
"rover Cleveland.
Beneath the unpolished man
aer of Tillman, Washington
;oon found the kindly heart of
i real man. The courage, the
iomely humor, the striking in
lividuality of this typical South
3rner all made their impress
ipon official and unofficial
Washington. People who vis
ted the capital wanted to see
'illman because he had become
t part of the nationaldrama.
The illness of Senator Tillman
rrieved all his friends. His ab
ence at the last session left a
roid that no other -man could
iuite fill. - His announcement
hat he would not return to the
