The people of Pickens county
should feel proud of their record
as peaceful and law abiding
citizens. This county is gain
ing a wide reputation on that
account, and a reputation like
that is worth something.
_"' ng the last term of court
for r county all the
criminal c s were disposed of
in about a day and a half and
the civil cases took up about
two and a ifali days. This is a
good showing and one which
very few counties anywhere
can boast of, But this was two
sessions of court rolled into one,
making it a remarkable show
The court scheduled for Pick
ens county last June was pst
poned because there was not
enough business to justify court
being held here. Think of it,
two terms of court disposed of
in less than a week. There is
probably not another county
anywhere the size of Pickens
that can show so good a record.
If there is we would like to hear
of it. Not only this term, but
every term, the docket is light,
'especially the criminal docket.
Solicitor Bonham said he
thought the two main causes
f6r this was the interest the
people of this county take in
their schools, and that Pickens
county juries invariably render
ed just verdicts-verdicts accord
ing to-the evidence given. He
is no doubt right.

October was originally the
eighth month of the Romans,
but it brought watermelons and
pumpkins in at the same time,
and Niuma Pompis, who liked
both, pushed it along to tenth
place to keep from foundering

formed to dethrone him, but he

TAXING POOR MAN'S
COAT OFF HIS BACK
Concrete Illustration of What a Re
publican Tariff Really Means
Causes Workers to Think.
Concrete examples of how a pro
tective tariff operatis are causing the
working man, the "poor man." to do a
lot o! 'hunking nowadays. He is be
to understand whether it is
not .bout time to call a halt on the
puh!ican practice of taxing the coat
c'f his back and threatening him with
the lozs of his shirt and his socks if
h6 .es not submit.
All through the present tariff law.
passed by a Republican congress and
endorsed by a Republican President
as THE BEST TARIFF BILL EVER
PASSED, are to be found discrimina
tions, the higher duty on the cheaper
article, the lower on the shoulders
of those least able to bear it the great
er burden of the protective system.
Here are some illustrations:
The cheapest wool blankets bear a
duty of 165.42 per cent.; the dearest,
104.55 per cent.
Flannels, not more than 40 cents a
Pound, are taxed at 143.67 per cent.;
over 70 cents a pound, 76.37 per cent.
Wool plushes, cheapest, 141.75 per
cent.; dearest, 95.33 per cent.
Knit fabrics, cheapest, 141 per cent.;
dearest, 95.53 per cent.
Stockings, worth from $1 to $1.50
a dozen, 76.37 per cent.; from $2 to
$3, 59 per cent.
Hats and bonnets, worth not over
$5 a dozen, 62 per cent.; over $20 a
dozen, 35 per cent.
Carpets, highest priced, 50 per cent.;
that used for mats and rugs, 126.88 per
Women's gloves, unlined, 49 per
cent.; lined, 34 per cent.; longest
gloves, unlined, 42 per cent.; lined, 29
Men's gloves, worth less than $3 a
dozen, 66.28 per cent.; costliest gloves,
14.45 per cent.: leather, unlined, 44.58
per cent.; lined, 29.50 per cent.
Buckles, cheapest, 77.48 per cent.;
dearest, 26.3 per cent.
Uncut diamonds bear a 10 per cent
duty; imitation diamonds, 20 per cent.
The humble firecracker bears a
97.02 per cent. duty. while elaborate
fireworks bear but 70 per cent.
Matting, smaller and cheaper grades,
43 per cent.; costlier, 24 per cent.
Watch movements, seven jewels,
66.02 per cent.; 11 jewels, 40.41 per
cent.; 17 jewels, 34.45 per cent.
Underwear, cheapest, 56.90 per
cent.; dearest, 50 per cent.
Dress goods of wool, cheapest,
105.42 per cent.; dearest, 94.13 per
Velvets. cheapest, 105.22 per cent.;
dearest. 49.55 per cent.
Silk handkerchiefs, cheapest, 77.44
per cent.; dearest, 59 per cent.
Scissors. worth 50 cents a dozen,
52.21 per cent.; worth $1.75 a dozen,
46 per cent.
Table knives, fancy grades, 57.40
per cent.; bone handled. 69.43 per
Butcher knives, best grades, 62.10
per cent.; cheapest grades, 93.55 per
Files, smallest, 81.29 per cent.;
longest, 36.81 per cent.
Shot guns, worth from $5 to $10,
47.67 per cent.; worth over $10, 45.46
These are only a part of the dis
oriminations, gleaned from a swift
conning of some of the schedules. Re
duced to simplest terms, they mean
that the poor man is taxed higher than
the rich man.
OLD VANDERBILT RURAL HOME
Little Place, Called "The Stream," is
Leased by Millionaire's Wife
London.-Mrs. Alfred Vanderbilt,
formerly Mrs. McKim, has been mak
ing extensive alterations to the house
called'"The Stream," at Betchworth,
near Reigate, in Surrey, of which she
took a seven years' lease last fall, a
few months before her marriage to
Alfred Vanderbilt. She is much at
tached to the place, although neither
the house, which is a small one, nor
the grounds, are particularly attract
ive. In fact, many of the people at
Betchworth on learning that she had
plenty of money said in amazement,
"Whatever does she want to come to
a hole like this for?'' When she re
turned from her honeymoon almost
her first remark was, "Oh! How gla~d
I am to be back here again. Now I
can rest and keep quiet." Sinice her

stronger and she has bought the
house and grounds.
Since winter many improvements
have been made that were badly
needed, for the dwelling had been
empty for five years before she took
it. An additional plot of land has
been bought from the trustee of the
previous tenant, an outside broker
whose business fell upon evil days. A
garage has been built capable of hold
ing several cars.
Miss Ethel McCormick, who was
Mrs. Vanderbilt's companion at the
time of the marriage, still remains a
close friend and is constantly at
Betchworth. Some months ago, while
she wa~s being driven in a dog cart by
Mrs. Vanderbilt from Reigate the
horse bolted and upset both women
and the groom, who was with them,
out of the cart. The horse was a
young one from Vanderbilt's stables
at Hendon, and Manager Wilson has
since had instructions to see that
quieter horses are sent to Betchworth.
