PICKENS HIGIH
WINS ORA TO1
CENTRAL HIGH SCHO
In the third annual Pickens
county oratorical contest held in
the Easley high school audi
torium last Saturday evening,
the handsome gold medal offer
ed to the winner of first place
was awarded to Mr. Colie Sea
born, the representative of the
Pickens high school. Second
place was awarded to Billy An
derson, of the Easley high
'school and third place was
awarded to Carl Morgan of the
Central high school. The judges
stated that between these three
there was only a fraction of a
point difference.
This association was organiz
ed three years ago and since
that time the medal given by
Mr. W. M. Hagood has gone to
Mr. Bill Folger. of Easley, now
r on the various teams at
l, the second year the
Vidal was won by Mr. 0. L.
'raie, of the Six Mile school.
The six speakers this time were
up to the usual standard and
did credit to both themselves
and the school which they rep
represented. The speakers
were:
J.A.Dillard, Six Mile-"Prog
r of Peace."
- ?-j I. Holland. Libert.y
"De'hbed of Benedict Arnold."
Call Morgan, Central-"Cata
line's Defiance."
Co 1 i e Seaborn, Pickens
"Give Me Liberty or Give Me
Death."
Pinckney Aiken, Dacusville
"The Confederate Soldier."
Billy Anderson, Easley-"The
Battle of Bannockburn."
During the evening several
songs were sung by a dozen or
more young ladies of the Easley
High school. These made a
tremendous hit as the words
were composed by one of the
teachers of the school and in
some way brought in the ya-.
R rious schools- of the association
and the names of the Easley
track team. They were very
catchy and original and brought
-aoud applause from the large
audience that was present.
Prof. W, S. Morrison. of
Clemson College, Messrs. J, C.
- Keys and H. T. Cox, both ofI
Greenville, were the judges for1
the occasion.

who would use insinuating lan

allows no familiarity. Let our
young men be men in the truest
sense of the word and not given
to liberty taking, let them feel
that they are to protect the op
posite sex, and be a safe-guard
against evil. Let them be men
in the truest and noblest sense
of the word, and never allow
their faces to wear a blush for
unmanly actions. Mothers, be
not ashamed to take your sons
aside and advise and reason
with them concerning the vital
points of honor, and morality.
Let them know that to take a
girl's good name from her, is
depriving her of her most sacred
right. It were better to thrust
a dagger through her heart, for
then her misery would be at an
end. What honorable young
man wishes to make a girl his
wife, that is lightly or immor
ally spoken of. Then think se
riously and prayeifully upon
the evils of the present day, and
let mothers, wives, sisters, and
fathers make it a matter of sol
emn and heart-felt prayer to
God to lead their childreb in the
paths of virtue, and to shield
them from thbe destroyer, that
Satan may be driven from our
midst. and our beloved city
1spared the blush of shame that

three policeman, who had con
cealed themselves in the store
in the anticipation of burglary,
with the result that the young
men were shot to death and one
of the policeman severely
wounded.
With five bullets in his body
and a wound through his heart,
young Smith ran up a flight of
stairs to the second floor, where.
the employes of the firm had
stationed themselves in waiting.
He was met at the top step by
one of the clerks who shout
ed to him not to shoot again,
and passing on by, tearing a
mask from his face with one
hand and gripping his pistol
with the other, he sank to the
floor and expired.
Martin ran to the rear of the
basement with a bullet hole
through his head and another
in his hand, and concealed him- f
self in a closet. A policeman
followed closely upon him and,
pulled him out, at the same i
time tearing a mask from the 1
lad's face.
Martin was placed in the po- 1
lice ambulance and rushed to.'
the city hospital, where he ex
pir'd two hours later.

house, in the presence of a
thousand or more citizens of all t
