A__ PICKENS, S. C., APRIL 1, 1915
c leanup Week
The citizens of Pickens are asked to
read the proclamation of His Excel
lency Gov. Richard I. Manning and fall
in line. The secretary of the state
board of health hgs called upon every
community to get its mind off of the
war and hard times by joining in a
lively campaign and celebrate cleanup
week April 5-11. The chairman of our
local board has closely followed and the
city council is ready to lend every effort
to clean up and make beautiful our
town. Practically every community in
the state is making preparations for
cleaning uO during that week. Will the
people of Pickens not be as zealous in
this good work as the people of other
The health of this community is at
stake and the protection against fire is
incalculable. Can not the business men
and county official be persuaded to take
some interest in this matter?
As a matter of economy in the county
government . would it not be well to
have some place to store the machinery
when hot in use, rather than leave it
exposed to the wind and rain? No pros
perous farmer would leave his tools in
Nature has done Much for Pickens,
and if man would lend his aid this could
be made one of the most beautiful spots
in the state.
Swat the fly.
The -owners of vacant lots are asked
to have them cleaned up next week.
Your premisea will be inspected by a
- committee of ladies after cleanup week.
Why hot move that piece of road ma
chinery which has been on Main street
for a year?
If fire were to break out in the rear
of the busiiess houses on Main street,
where there is an accumulation of trash
and some gasoline stored, the business
sedtion would go up in smoke.
. The, patrons of the Pickens graded
school would do well in a united effort
to renovate the auditorium. It is not
only in a most unsanitary condition, but
there is great danger of the plastering
falling. Why not have a cleanup day
and get this in good condition before
A Few Hints. on Fertilizer
Under the present financial conditions
now is the time for the farmyes to look
out for 'their own interests.
We can save a large per cent on our
fertilizer this year by paying cash, as I
have previously pointed out to you. The
followingd are some prices, delivered
anywhere on the Southern railroad and
at Pickens, in car lots. Sixteen per
cent acid will be 37 cents per ton more
delivered at Pickens, being shipped
from Greenville. All other goods same
price it both places:
10-2 acid, $13.50.
16 per cent acid, $10.75 on Southern;
$11.12 at Pickens.
8-3-3 meal, fish animal ammoniated,
S8--2.-1, field crops, $21.50.
9.20-2-2, standard mixture, $20.50.
These goods are all bagged and tagged
