Fair at Easley
The Pickens County Agricul
tural and Mechanical Fair was
held in Easley on Thursday and
Friday of last week, and to say
that it was a very great success
puts it mildly. Had it not been
for the rain, on the last day
there is no telling how many
people would have attended.
As it was In spite of the incle
ment weather, the crowd was
very large, and everything pass
ed in splendid style. The hor
ses, cattle, hogs and chickens
were very fine. The agricul
tural display was first class, and
the fancy work by the women,
was perhaps unsurpassed by
any previous fair in the county.
The fair certainly ought to
stimulate our people to greater
efforts along all lines of indus
try. Why not begin now and
plan for a big fair next year?
Let it be the Piedmont fair and
let Pickens, ~Oconee, Anderson
and Greenville 'counties come
together; appoint a central place
to hold the fair and let all our
people take part. It certainly
would be a great thing for our
3ection of the state.
