gone U Unpunished. But murder
will out and it is known now
w to killed Goebel.
In a disuatch to the press from
Helena, Ark. dated 15th inst.
we clip the following:
James Gilbert, formerly of
Breathitt County,Ky., who said
he had been a member ot the
Hargis feud faction, was fatally
wounded in a revolver duel
with a bartender here today,
but before he died he declared
he was the man wh> fircd the
shot that killed Governor Wil
liam Goebe: at Frankfort in
January, 1900,
Realizing that the end had
come, Gilbertsmiled faintly and
after making an attempt to joke
about the dying in his boots, de
clared that he fired the shot that
caused the death of G vernor
Goebel. Whether he would have
given details of his alleged kill
ing of Goebel can never be
known, for Gilbert died within
an hour after making the state
ment. which he repe ted over
and over again, with the asser
tion that he "could never get
over it."
Here is proof of the sayinv
that murder will out. -Very
few. if any, who have stained
their hands in their fellow man's
blood and endeavored to hide it
will go to their graves with the
secret in their bosoms. When
men face the last foe-death
ther want to make right the
past, There are many'
have ihe same bitter experience
and like Gilbert the thing will
haunt thenm to their gr-aves and
will som: e day say "I can never
get over it.''
The Liberty Cotton Mill.
The stockholders of this mill
held a rueeting at Liberty last
Friday at which meeting it was
decided to sell the property at
public sale on April 15th next.
This mill was closed down early
last summer and has not been
operated since. It is said that
the mill has never paid a p~rofit
but on the contrary has been
operated year after year at a
lOSS. The reason for this is not
known, some attribute it ft
the insufficiency of the plant,
some to the grade of goods man
ufactured, and others to the
heavy operating expenses. Cer*
tain it is that it has not been
profitable and many, if not all,
the original stockholders lost
What the future of the mill
wvill be has not been given out,
if dletermnined. It it is probable,
however, that after the sale the
company wvillI be reo;rganfized or
a new company formed and
it wvill be opera ted.
A Forme~r Pickens Man Writes.
Please allow me space in your
paper to let the people of my na
tive home land know that I am
still up in The Land of the Sky.
I can do about as much wvork
as I ever could. Can still sing~
tenor for the Sunday school and
church services, and have not
missed a Sunday all this snowy
weather. So that is good for a
62 years young. I am still tight
ing the world, the flesh and the
devil, and its a hard fight over
here with a devided people in
many- ways.
There are many who do not
like to be rebuked for using to
bacco and str-ong drink and cof
fee. but we are looking for a
day when total abstinence will
Prevail, and a great r-eformation
will take plac-e and when men
will votLe as they pray.
Mr'. FEditor, I aml proud1 to

miond to be used as 'heef cattle.
Some time ago Mr. Lathem built
a large modern barn on his farm
for the purpose of raising beef
cattle for the various markets.
This is his first shipment and it
is one to be proud of. They are
beautiful and meet the demands
of the purchasers but will sur
pass those of other markets.
The above was taken from
the Anderson Daily Mail and
was written by its correspondent
at Easley. Mr. J. T. Lathem is
well known in this county. He
is a leader in enterprises for the
best interest and development
of the county. A public spirited
man and one whose good judge
ment and examples might be
followed by many others with
As has often been remarked
in these colunis this is a corn,
cattle and hog county, and it is
surprising to us that more of
our prominent farmers are not
engaged in stock raising. We
have made no inquiry but
believe upon investigation
it will be found tkat themanure
from the cattle will pay for theii
feed. This can be applied to
the land and in just a few years
will more than double in pro
ductiveness. 0
Death of W. S. Blaokstone.
Mr. WV. Silas Blackstone diedi
at his home near Holly Springs
chuirch on the -17th inst. and his:
remains were interred in the
cemetery of this church the af
ternoon of the same day, He1
was about 65 years old and had
been in bad health for so~me
,months. He was widely kn~owr
in the county, hav'ng for aln:
time lived at Pickens and served
as deputy sheriff under the late
Sheriff Joab Mauldin and also
as a court balif. For the~ last
ten years or more he has been
in charge of the store of Mr. W.
R. Price at Holly Springs. In
every 1elation of life he was
true and faithful and made
friends of all with whom he
came in contact. He had ro
Rev. 0. L. DuRant Dead.
There are many people in
Pickens county who will regret
to receive this news, He was
known a'nd called here "Judge
Durant" and numbered his
friends by his acquaintan~ces.
He died at Lake City on the
night of January 31st at the
home of one of his sons. He
had retired from active work in
the ministry on account of his
health some years ago, land for
the past year rapidly declined.
He was (i8 years old and is sur
vived by his wife arnd nine chil
dren, four boys and five girls. .
Judge Durant first came to
this County about 1870 or 1872
as pastor of the Easley and
Pickens and others churches,
which then constituted his cir
cuit. After serving this field
awhile he was elected probate
judge of this county and
served one term. Later he was
twice elected to the office of
county school commissioner
and after retiring from this of
fice became assistant county
treasurer dmine the terms of
Capt. John Hi. Howen and Mr.
J. Tyler Hill. He also served a
number of years as clerk for the
county commissioners.
In all these public trusts as
well as in his ministerial duties
he performed his tasks with fi
delity to the people and in the
fear of God.
He was a man of sterling
qualities: simple and unassum
ing in his manners, yet earnest,
faithful and true to every duty.
Truly a good man has gone to
his reward.
The county board has extend
ed the payment of the commu
tation road tax for 1912 to' March
15- As the law now stands.
school trustees are not exempt.
The board desires that all may
make an effort to pay this tax
before the extendled time is out.
