Soliloquy of a Horse
That newspaper man last
veek made me say, that at one
unday school I heard it said
here were about seventy-five
hildren deserted by their pa
'ents. I didn't say parents I
aid teachers. It is such a com
non thing for children to be
leserted-by parents at Sunday
chool that I neyer would 'have
hought of saying anything
bout that, but, as a horse sees
t, a teacher oight to be asham
d to run off to a Sunday picnic
.nd have their pupils with no
ne to teach them. If the
ea)her values the Sunday
chool so little, how can they
xpect the pupils to think high
. of it?
Well, after that horse kicked
'Uncle Phil" men folks were a
ttle watchful, and so were we
orses. We tried to find out
ow these people were worship
'ig the being theyT call God.
V6e sapeoplekgoing in and out
f the -dh'urc7:it si true, bit
iost of them did not go in.
omie of these Sunday school
machers did not go in. They
mnst have had a fine time. for
2ey shook hands and laughed,
nd the young women kissed
ich other, and the young men
-anted to; no, no, not kiss each
ther, but the young women.
[ow do Iknow? I heard Frank
11l Mary so as we went home.
Talk about shaking hands!
1ere were several men there
1at just went around hunting
p people to shake hands \with,
iey yested th6 babies and call
I them pretty where their
tothers and fathers could hear
iem. I think they called these
ten who shook hands so much,
mndidates. One man would
it people on the back and say
I'm running for nnt old office
gain. I want you to help me.'
.nd another would come along
ad skake hands with the same
allow and say, "I am counting
a you to help me keep my of
de another term," and -the
allow promised one to help him
et it, and the other to help him
eep it. And we horses wonder
I how he could do it. It sound
I strange to us. Some wanted
be clerk of someth4ling, some
anted.to be sheriff of some
here, but none wanted to be
>roner. We horses concluded
1ere wasn't enough in it.
Sonme fellows talked about
sing to the legislature, and one
ian was there who had already
zen. He gave them a "fine
>eech" in the church, they
tid, but we horses, mules and
mkies on the outside couldn't
ear anything.
A Sad Death.

Mrs. Hester .Austin Clayton

st Saturday 13th inst., of ty
Lioid fever. She was sick
>out haidekim every
iing that could be done was

and two children, the youngest
being about three months old.
At the time of her death she
was 21 years old.
Roads Need Work,
Mr. Editor: Can you tell me
whit went with the county
scrapes and all the fine ma
chinery we read about in The
Sentinel not long since? They
have not been seen on this side.
I sent my children to mill the
other day and a wheel dropped
in a hole, the axle dragged on
the ground and one stirrup was
broken off. The road by Mr.
George Ellis' got so bad we had t
to go.round by Mr. Pick Steph- f
ens' to get to town. Mr. Ellis s
took his hands and patched it up t
so people could pass. I think I
we will vote for George when he a
runs. He is a good farmer and e
knows what a time we poor old c
farmers have digging in the j
mud, and if we make anything i
to sell we have no way to get it 3
to town. 2
I heard a man say he suppos- a
ed the roads were so bad they
could not pull the machines over 7
them to work, and that he had t
not seen them in so long they 1
must have been carried to And- f
erson where the roads were '
smoother. e
Well. it is work time and the j
grass is four inches high. The s
crops are the sorriest, the roads c
the worst and the governor the c
finest I ever saw. Voter. e
Children's Day at Peters Creek. t
Last Sunday was children's
day at Peters Creek. The exer- a
cises began at ten o'clock and j
continued until in the afternoon a
The exercises consisted of songs, T
recitations and- declamations. n
Each one who took part acquit
ed:themseiveswvll and showed c
careful training.
Rev. W: E. Wilkins. secretary
of the La#man' s Missionary
Movement was present and er
delivered a splendid address. $3
A very large crowd was present 1
and a bountiful dinner wg ~
sers ed on the ground,
Prof. R. Mv. B3okting was pres- a
ent and delighted the people in
with splendid selections of g,
music. h
Altogether it was a very profi
table and enjoyable day.
Table Rock Land Company. ri
To show that Pickens is not ti
altogether asleep a charter has' ir
been granted by the Secretary a
of State to the Table Rock Land b
Company, with a capital of a
$10,000. G
The corporators are Mr. R. E. te
Bruce, of this place, and Hon. a
D. W. McLaurin, of Columbia, 19
These gentlemen boughtathe a
Table Rock Hotel property wo i
or three years ago and since "
then have bought other lands in y
connection .with it until now
they own between 1,000 and '
1,200 acres, Tie most of this is a
mountain land but is covered h
with fine timber, which in a h
few years will be very valuable G
on account of its scarcity. They i
have on the property just at the Ci
base of Table Rock, an almost el
new hotel, partly furnished, but ca
which is' now vacant. This is s]
an ideal place for the summer s<
and the only drawback to it is
the inaccessibility to railroads. "
Pickens is the nearest point, d
which is about ten miles. n
It would be a fine -thing for
these gentlemen, as well as for o
the Carolina Timber Congpany, ~
which owns sever91 thousand 3
acres of land in the mountains
of this county, to interest them- h
selves in the railroad now being s(
agitated by Mr. R. Mayes Cleye- E
tand, from Ande-son to Marietta T
carry the railroad from Pickens fi
to the Oolenoy thenoo to viarl- o:
etta. This would put them 1k
within two nmiles of a railroad
and would bhe the' thing all this s4
county needs.
