I saw this great war when it
started- and I offered my services
to the state for four years to try
to do what I could to make laws
that would be a compromise be
tween two great factions, but I
got my tail mashed and have
since set back and looked at the
great war go on. The animos
Ity is still growing and brohibi
tion is by no means here.
If a man wants to make a
grain crop and manufacture it
in a way that will profit hin in
the state and nation, I am in
favor of him doing so.
The argument thht good men
have been carried to premature
graves or have been led astray
by whiskey is a mistake. Such
men were not good men and the
world will always be better with
out them. r
I know if we could stamp out t
the evil in this world it would be E

whiskey and pay the govern- i

The whisktey tax pays the inter

I am in favor of cutting whis
key out of the Southern states,
if it, could be done, and let the
North pay the enormous debt
they made while fighting us; but
I am opposed to any kind of pro
hibition any state can have with
out the aid of national laws.
I believe the lawmakers should
make laws forall the people that
would not make anyone think
his rights were imposed upon,
especially in a time when we are
being threatened w i th war
abroad. We may want these
very men whom war is waged
against to fight for our property

From An Oolenoy Citizen
Editor Pickens Sentinel:
Crops are generally clean, and
corn looks very wvell, but small
grain isn't good1,
Well, I want to call the atten
tion of our road1 officers and also
the enterprising citizens to the
fact that we need a good road
f rom Price's store, or some other
point near, to North Carolina,as
we have comp~aratively no road
a t all.
Gr'eenyille, with some aid from
North Carolina, has a good road
to Hendersonville, while Wal
halla and Seneca have a splen
dlid road1 to Lake Toxaway,N.O.
Now, wvhere are we Pickens
county folk? Awvay back in the
background; but what say the
towns of Pickens and Easley to
the road1 mentioned above? It is
only nine miles from Price's
store to the North Carolina line,
and, I think, a considerable part
of the Sassafras T. P. road could
be used to a goodi advantiage.
There is also a very good road
from Price's store to Pickens, so
with a very small amount of
work it could be made a splen
dlid road. Another good reason
is that Price's store is on a high
ridge betwveen the Twelve Mile
andl Little Eastatoe rivers and
extends northwest and forms the
dliv ide between Big Eastatoe and
the Oolenoy, which skirts the
south side of the Blue Ridge for
some fifteen miles, makin it
