Mr. H. J. D. Anthony, of
Hill City, Tenn.. after taking in
the re-union at Macon, Ga.,
came on to this county to visit
relatives and friends. Mr.
Anthony left here 26 years ago,
and for the past 21 years has
been connected with the City
Milling Company, one of the
largest flour plants extant. He
looks like time has dealt kindly
with him and appears to be well
satisfied in his adopted home.
He lost his wife a year ago, and
some time before that, buried
his only child, a son, and now
has no family.
Rev. G. F. Kirby preached an
excellent sermon at the Meth od-i
ist church last Sunday. The|
line of thought was home life
and home influences, the pro
per and correct living and rear
ing children, 1t was dlirected
especially to parents. and it is
regretted that more of the fath
ers and moth~ers of the town and
community did not hear it.

parents hold over their children
is lamentable indeed, and the

and when asked for the news of
his section. replied that he did
not know any, as he had just re
turned from the re-union at
Macon. While there he visited
a former citizen of this county,
Mr. J. Abe Stewart, whom he
reports to be doing well.
Several persons from this
county attended the old soldiers
re-union at Macon and various
opinions were expressed about
the country. Some thought it
fine and others said it looked so
forsaken and poor that a crow
would have to take his rations
with hin in some sections. We
have heard of none, however,
taking the Georgia fever. Pick
ens should be good enough for
any man.
The large congregation which
greeted Rev. J. C. Bailey at the
Presbyterian church last Sun
afternoon was richly rewarded
by hearing one of the best ser
mons delivered in Pickens in
quite awhile, from the text,
"Where art Thou." Rev. Mr. <
Bailey is a man of gifts, a fluent I
sr.eaker and splendid preacher,
and the Presbyterian congrega
tion should feel happy in secur- t
ing the services of such a man. f

The Liberty Cotton Mills,
As was stated last week this t
mill was sold to Mr J. M. Geer,
the president of the Easley Cot
ton Mill. Reliable information
received since the sale is that
the price paid was $80.000. a
which is about $100,000 less
than the original cost. . t
Mr. Geer, it is understood
here, bought this property for i
the owners of the Easley Cotton
mill, and it will be operated by a
the same management.
Mr. J. P. Carey went to An
derson last week to prepare the
title and assist in making the
transfer of the property. It is
said the mill will resume oper- t
ation at an early day and that
at least $25,000) will be spent at
once in new machinery etc.
The prospects are that steps will 3
be taken to enlarge and increase t
the output of the mill.
The peoiple of Liberty are very
much gratified that Mr. Geer
has purchased this plant as he
is regarded as one of the best
mill men in the South and his
name is synonomous with suc.
cess. - -
Judge Jones to Speak.
The Daughters of the Confed- (
eracy have secured a promise
from Judge Ira B. Jones, can
didate for governor, to deliver I
the annual address at the old E
soldiers reunion at this place on I
the 3rd day of June. Judge t
Jones, besides being a gentle- 2
man and scholar, is a speaker of c
rare gifts. and all who attend t
the reunion here this year will
be assured of a great feast from
the lips of this brilliant man.
The Daughters will hold a
meeting this week at which
time final arrangements and a
program will be made for
the occasion. It is expected
that the largest crowd which ~
ever attended an old soldier's
reunion at Pickens will be here ~
June :3rd. if the weather is good,
and it is earnestly hoped th.t
the day may be fair and bright.
The local chapter U. D. C.
will spare no pains to make this
one of the most pleasant of all
the reunions. The Pick-ens
Silver Cornet Band will furnish
the music.

All the people of this locality 1
are puzzling their brains over
what has become of our super
visor. He very evidently has
not traveled over our public
roads in this vicinity recently I
and I inay safely add, previous-]

came, the roads were already in I
a most deplorable condition, and
since, it would be hard to im
agine the state they are in new,
certainly not passable. And
yet we thought we were endow
ed with superior wisdom in elect
ing a supervisor that would en
deavor to attend occasionaly to
the absolute needs essential for<
safe travt 1, if indifferent to
cater to our wants. "For man

The Confederate Reunion.
Baltimore Sun.
Not many more Confederate
reunions will be held. "The
ivil war was fought by boys,"
one historian tells us, but it was
half a century ago when the
youngsters marched away to
war, and even the 16-year-old
soldiers are nearing threescore
years and ten. They were as
hardy a set as ever shouldered a
gun, but Time conquers the
bravest, and most of them have
fallen before the last enemy.
Tears came to the eyes as we
watch the "thin gray line" at
Macon-tears in which pride is
mingled with regret, tears for
the dead, cheers for the living.
They will not be with us many
years, these men who survived
war and reconstruction. They
have been heroes of peace as
well as war. After following
Lee and Jackson, Longstreet,
Stuart and Johnston for four
years, they went back to what
was left of their homes. From
the ashes of the Con federacy
