Well, we got our informatioi

Removal of Political Landmarks
On the removal of political
landmarks from Pickens county
during the past thirty years
there will be no attempt on my
part to give a full list, but only
those whom I remember well.
My first recollection of the
men of Pickens was of Mr. An
derson Lesley, who was then
treasurer of the county; Mr. Ri
ley Ferguson and Mr. Joab
Mauldin were sheriffs, Col. J.
J. Lewis was clerk of the court,
Mr. W. G. Field was probate
judge, Col. R. E. Bowen was
senotor; Dr. W.T. Field was also
senator; Major D.Frank Bradley
was school commissioner and
also s.nator. Later he was ap
pointed collector of internal rey
enue by President Cleveland.
Among the first members of the
house 1 remember from Pickens
county wvere Messrs. R.A. Childs,
Esley Bates, John H.BJo wen and
Julius E. Bogas. Revs. G. W.
Singleton and 0. L. Durant and
WA. W. F.' Bright were county
school commissioners. WV. H.
Bryant was auditor.
IWhen the constitutional con
vention was held in 1895 Dr. W.
T. Field and Dr. R. F. Smith
were members from this county.
In calling up the past and
thinking over the men who held
office in the days gone by wve
conclude that Pickens county
has been greatly honored in the
men who have represented us in
county and state politics.
Honored men who have served
your generation faithfully and
well, rest from thy labors; may
Sthy rest be sweet and thy awak
Many of our old officers were

Alcohol, its Victims and Assailants
Alcohol is a double, deadly,
irritant, narcotic poison, and is
found in large quantities in wine,
beer, whiskey and many patent
Statistics compiled by insur
ance companies show that 440
deaths out of every 1,000 deaths,
nearly one-half of the deaths
that occur, are due to alcohol.
Applied to this county, over
680,000 deaths per year in conti
niental United States, or over
725,000 per year in the United
States and its possessions. In
other words alcohol is killing
our people at the rate of nearly
2,000 men a day every day in
The Army War College at
Washington made an investiga
tion of the destructiveness of
war. The comparative figures
show the appallin'g fact alcohol
is killing off as many Americans
every year as all the wars of the
world have killed in 2,800 years.
Applied to the whole. white
race, we find that alcohol is
killing 3,500,000 white men
every year; five times as many
as have been killed in war in
2,300 years; so that stated mathe
matically, alcohol is ten thous
and times more destructive than
all the wars combined.-Hon.
Richmond Pr Hobson.
A commercial friend is hand-'
ing out the following, which is
"For the married man who can
not get along, without drinks:"
"Start a saloon in your own
house. Be the only customer
(vou'll have no license to pay).
Go to your wife and give her two
dollars to buy a gallon of whis
key, and remember there are
about sixty-nine drinks in a
gallon. Buy your drinks from
no one but your wife, and by
the time the first gallon is gone
she will have about eight dollars
to put into the bank and two
dollars to start business again.
Should you live ten years and
continue to buy booze from her,
and then die with snakes in
your boots, she will have money
enough to bury you decently,
educate your children, buy a
house and lot, marry a decent
man, and quit thinking about
you entirely.'"-Baptist Courier.
