After lingering in great pair
for 30 hours. S. Milton Taylor
the young Honea Path mar
who was shot by Furman Bag
well in the lodge hall of th(
Woodmen at Friendship churcl
near Honea Path, Friday night,
died at the Anderson hospita:
Monday morning at 6 o'clock.
His father and mother, Mr. and
Mrs. S. P. Taylor, and a brethei
and sister, were constantly at
the bedside of. their loved onE
and were with him when hE
breathed his last.
While Bagwell was being in

lodge, he became greatly excit
ed and when Taylor, who was
leading the degree team, fired
several shots with a revolver,
said to be loaded with "blanks,'
the candidate for initiation rush

secured a 32 Smith and Wesson
revolver from his coat pocket

are reported to have been fired,
one taking effect in the back of
the neck, two making slight
lesh wounds in the hip and the
fourth entering the center of
the abdomen, puncturing the
transverse colon twice, tearing
large holes in the walls of the
intestine.-Daily Mail.
Disease Among Cows.
Several cows in and around
Pickens have been and are now
sick with a peculiar malady.
They first begin to fail in milk,
they become droopy and ther

side lining of the lips and rool
beconmes sore and the tongue
turns almost black. The feel

with some difficulty.
Mr. D. B. Finney lost om

county have died from th<
The cause is said to be eating
the grass which had become
poisoned from the incessani
rains this spring.
A treatment used very suc
cessfully in sonme places is a
solution of 1 part of creoline t<

a mouth wash, and also batl

Bor-ic Acid used as a mouti:
wash is also good. After bath

Intensive Farming.

corn. The Boy's Corn Clud
contest is responsible in a great
measure for the con~lition

and work. It is perfectly clean
The rows appear to be ~3 t<
33 feet and the corn will averagt

Nearlv every stalk of the firs
acre planted has two large
well dev eloped ear-s, and it i:
estimated that it will make 12.

It is a sight worth seeing an

It would make an excellent
i hiding place for Sidna Allen or
Vaughan. The Sentinel man
walked out about the middle
of this first acre with another
I gentleman and then walked
istraight along one row 54 feet
from the other man and he
could not be seen. Then he
went across eight rows and was
out of sight.
We do not know any of the
methods employed in the pre
paration, fertilization or culti
vation of this field of corn, but
have been told it belongs to Mr.
Gilstrap's son, Ralph. who is in
the Boy's Club contest.
There are a good many people
who are slow to believe news
paper stories, and there are
some who, like Gov. Blease,
thinks they cannot tell the
truth at all, and doubtless there
will be some to doubt and dis
credit this "fish tale," but to all
such we say go see for yourself.
It is estimated that the five
acres will make at least 500
bushels and if we are not mis

It will pay anybody to go see
it. See what intensive farming
is. This is the kind that is need

as much on five?
Anderson and Marietta Railroad.
I have read what Hon. R.
Mays-Cleveland says in regard
to making a railroad from
Anderson by way of Pickens to
Marietta, in Greenville county.
It is a rich country, a pretty
country, a country well popu
lated and badly in need of rail
road transportition. It would
be a splendid investment for
the people along the route to
put in every dollar necessary to
build this road and turn it over
clear of debt to any company
that would agree to operate it
If the people along the route
most interested could be per.
suaded that this is true and ~
made to think and act together, '
the road would be in operation ~
inside of t welve months. I
There is just one thing more
timid than a million dollars- ~
and that is two million. Beside. ~
there are always on the market ~
stocks. and bonds that pay a
fixed and certain dividend semi
annually. capital prefers such to
ventures it knows not of. The
greatest benefit from a railroad 1
always goes to those it helps ~
and serves most. Many of this ~
kind lie back, do nothing and
say nothing, thinking the rail. 1
road will be built anyway. and
consider themselves wise when I
they add to all the other bene
fits they get from it, the amount ~
they ought to have subscribed
to it.
The value of any land or
water power is estimated ac
cording to the distance it is
from it to the nearest railroad. ~
-Every tract of land advertised ~
for sale is described by its dis
tance from the railroad.C
The Southern2 Power Conipany, ~
the A'nderson Light and Power E
Company, or the Pickens Rail- ~
road Company would agree to ~
operate it.
I am reliably informed that a
good and valid charter over the
proposed route has been grantedk
and is of force. I
So ali Mr. Cleveland and those
who want the road have to do
to get it, is to get together and
build it. This is the most prof- ~
itab~le im~ estment.' Anderson
and Marietta and all points be
tween, can make. If they will
lay the rail. the car wheels will
begin at once to sing the high
tenor of progdess ofi the plains
of Piercetown, up the valley of ~
Twelve mile, down th'e-Oolenoy
and among the beautiful foot i
hills east of the Saluda. t
If they wait for capital to I
come and buy the right of way,
the cross ties and the rails, thei
4late of probability is A. D. 1962, I
or A. L. 5962.

Opened Saturday
The first meetina of the
:ounty campaign opened at
Easley last Saturday. The
neeting was held in the school
iditorium and began at I
)'clock. The Sentinel man did
iot get in for the opening and
1ad to leave before the close.
There were about 200 voters
present to hear the candidates,
nd contrary to the expectations
>f some. it was a quiet, orderly
.neeting. Predictions had been
nade that each candidate, and
.specially those for the legisla
ure, would be called upon to
tate who they were for for gov
rnor. But no such effort was
nade by any one in the crowd,
and only -one candidate, Mr.
f. A. Hinton, ventured to ex
press himself along this line.
rhe reason for not forcing this

andidates for county commis

Mr. J. L. B gwell spoke*
~riefly. He said the roads were

in account of the heavy rains.
Mr. G. W. Brown said when

Mr. Elias Day, being at home
Lad nothing to 'say.
There was no issue between
e candidates for treasurer
,nd auditor. Each one, howev
, (presented his claims and
as given an attentive hearing.
Mr. S. B. Craigj~ was the flrst
peaker. Hie saidl four years
go he was a candid ite for aud
tor and thanked the people for
heir support. He referred to
s election as mayor of Pick
ns, saying he had been elected
iver one of the best men of the
own by 2 to 1. If elected to
he House, he would do his own
hinking and stand on his own
eet. Some. he said, had criti
ised him for entering the race
ecause his brother was county
upervisor and that it appeared
ike the Craigs wanted to run
he county.

)f the rural schools. He was in
avor of some changes at the
enitentiary, saying he did not
jelieve it right to put criminals
nn such miiserable cells. He was
pposed to puttit; whites and
blacks either in the penitentiary
- ainno together.
Mr. J. Ashniure Hinton wa
the next speaker. After he wa
introduced he advanced to th
front of the stage and said th&
before he entered upon hL
speech he would pause Ion;
enough to give any one wi
wished to an opportunity to as!
him any question. He stoo(
still for three or four second
and not a word was spoken b:
anyone. The purpose of this, i
seemed, was to lift the lid fron
the cauldron by having one o
more call out, "Are you fo
Jones or Blease?" Then he sai(
that if there were no question
he desired to state at the outse
that lie was a Blease man an<
expected to vote for him. Upoi
this announcement about one
third of the crowd cheered.
He then launched into hi:
speech. He opposed the railroa<
commissioners being paid by th<
railroads and would endeavor t<
have this changed by makim
the State pay them. He favor
ed appropriations for the publi<
schools. Ten years ago he fav
ored issuing bonds for building
roads and was still in favor of
it. He would offer a bill to al
low the county to issue such
bonds. He favored appropriat
ing half a million dollars and
giving every old soldier a pen
sion. He was opposed to rais
ing salaries.
Hon. E. P. McCravey-He
said he promised two years agc
to pass a marriage license law
and claimed to have had a part
in passing the one now on the
statute books. He denied the
report that he had favored a bill
to deprive anyone of his vote.
The law he supported affected
only the aliens !who came here
from foreign countries.
He reminded Mr. Hinton that
he had had an act passed which
gave the people of - this county
the right to vote bonds for road
improvement if they desired.
He voted to pension every old
oldier and voted to increase the
appropriation for this purpose to
