Juliuts E. Boggs
Died in Anderson
Julius Boggs, of Pickens, one
of the most prominent men of
the up-state, died at the Ander
son County Hospital Thurs
day night at twenty minutes
after seven o'clock. Mr. Boggs
had been there for treatment
since Sunday morning. Death
was due to kidney trouble.
Mr. Boggs was born February
14, 1854, in Pickens county,
where his forefathers came from
e Ireland. He was reared on the
r farm, and in early manhood en
gaged in the mercantile busi
ness. He then taught school for
several years, and at the age of
0 26 was admitted to the bar,
having read law under Capt. C.
L. Hollingsworth, at Pickens.
This was in the year 1880.
'S With the exception of a brief
period in 1882 when he practiced
e law at Marshall. Texas, Mr.
Boggs lived and followed his pro
fession in Pickens from 1881 un
g til 1913. In 1882 he was elected
solicitor of the .Eighth judicial
circuit, which position he held
for eight years, retiring to run
for congress. He was the first
president of the Pickens rail
road and at one time was editor
of the Pickens Sentinel and a
member of the State Press as
sociation. He was a member of
dthe Grand Lodge of Masons,
and also was a member of the
. Knights of Pythias.. On De
cember 24, 1882, he married
fl Miss Minnie Lee Bruce, of Pick
ens, who preceded him to the
graye. Mr. Boggs was an elder
of the Presbyterian ohurch.
Four children survive him.
They are Miss Helen Boggs, of
r- Pickens, and Messrs. LeRoy of
Cincinnati, Bruce of Los Ange
V les and Julius E. Boggs of Eas
ley. His two sis'ers are Mrs. T.
H, Smith, of Easley and Mrs.
if. I. Horton of Columbia.
The funeral was. held Friday
afternoon at five o'clock at Pick
ens. Tie body left Anderson
d Friday morning at 11:50 o'clock
over the P. & N. lines. ,
te Funeral services were held in
it the Pickens Presbyterian church
and conducted by Rev. Mr.
Y Dodge of Anderson, assisted
by Rev. J. C. Bailev and Rev.
e D- W. Hiott. The body was
laid to rest in the church ceme
tery by the side of the grave of
his wife. Many magnificent
lx and beautiful floral offerings
to were sent by friends.
t Few citizens in the Piedmont
r section were more popular than
|Mr. Boggs. During his service
ol as solicitor he had occasionl to
Svisit repeatedly the counties of
cGreenville, Anderson, -Pickens
e and Oconee, which comprised
his circuit. He was an orator
of unusual ability and when the
news got abroad that he was to
speak in a case of interest the
e court rooms were usually pack
~ed. His white hair and his face
were familiar sights in all the
court house cities of his circuit,
eas well as in other cities and
s communities. He was often
d called upon for addresses at
social gatherings, and in other
ways was in demand. Today
y when men talk of court house
e experiences. o r o f speeches
0 heard within the walls of the
0 temples of justice of the old
rEishth circuit, almost invari
f ably some one wilt recall the
V speeches which Mr. Boggs made
e in this or that case. One of his
e points of strength was his ora
tory andliis ability to pick out
the essentials of a case, present
r ing them in a manner such as
e was sure to impress the jurors.
t He often,. by forcible presenta
a tion of evidence, nerved the
1. jury to the duties imposed upon
n Mrs. Annie Jones Petty
t Mrs. Annie Jones Petty died
e at the home of her brother, Mr.
1H. M. Jones, near Easley, on
11 Sunday, the 20th instant, in the
- 49th year of her age. Mrs.
Petty was borgi and reared in
the St. Paul community. She
a went to California several years
ago where she was married to
y Mr: Stephen Petty, a wealthy
il ,entleman, and since her mar
t riage she has lived in Oakland,
California, and in New Zealand,
and spent some time in -Tieta
' for the benefit of her health.
2 She leayes a husband and one
s sister and seven brothers, Mrs.
.John A. Smith of Easley; Mr.
1 G. W. Jones, .Oakland,. Cali

tWest View cemetery in the
presence of weeping friends and
loved ones. - Easley Progress.

Everything is moving along
nicely in this burg and since the
stir and bustle of the electionE
are over we have all settled
down to gathering war cotton
and are anxiously hoping that
something may be done to give
us living prices for this crop and
then the next crop should be re
duced one half if it has to bE
done by legislation; this being
done we believe that we would
get a good price for our cotton
all the time.
Pump Is Safer Than Open Well
"'A few years ago we used to b
inclined to believe that a great
lot of our pollution of wells went
through the ground," Mr. War
ren H. Booker of the .N orth
Carolina Board of Health writes.
"Now, we are coming to change
our minds and we believe that a
great source of difficulty with
these open wells is on account
of people carrying filth on theii
boots and shoes and washing it
off on the well platform nearby
and then rinsing it back into the
well by means of waste water or
by means of actual contact with
the bucket or rope and human
hands and lips.
'Another means of polluting ouw
farm wells is by means of dust,
dirt, trash, insects, etc., getting
in at the open top. The health
offcers are coming to believe now
that by all odds the greater pro
tection to ordinary farm wells
is to close top up tight and in
stall pump and trough. This
protects the top of the well and
carries the waste water away Sc
that there is much less danger
than we formerly thought there
was by pollutlon reaching the
well after traveling through
from twenty five to one hundred
feet of soil. "-Progsessive Farrl

How to Become a Poet.
"The art of writing poetry is very
difficult at first, but it becomes easy
by practice," says an English writer.
~'The best way for a beginner Is to
take a line from another poem; then
he should construct a line to fit it;
then, having won his start, he should
strike out the first line (which1. of
course, does not belong to him)- and
go ahead. When the pqet has written
three verses of four lines each, lle
should run out and find a girl some
where, and read it to her."
