We don't believe it. Pickens county
has the' reputation of being the most
-iia-abiding county in the state and its
,fyrors and officers enforce the law when
- it is violated, but since it is getting 'to
where a man can't go out of his house
without violating some of the so-called
laws we suspect Pickens will be forced
to take its place along with other law
breaking counties, b ecause juries of
good and sensible men will not convict a
man for violating some of these petty
laws. Mark the prediction: this multi
tude of petty laws which the legislature
annually passes is going to make it so
that it will be a hard matter to convict
a white man of any crime whatsoever.
You don't have to "smak6 this a good

South Carolina had not been a mighty
good state the legislatnre would have
ruined it before this.
Miss Cecilia Milow, desetibed as a
Swedish educator and writer, says she
"believes in women as wives and moth
ers. To be a faithful wife and a good
mother is a far greater vocation than
to be a lawyer, a professor or a popu
lar club woman." Many of us believe
that, too; but what does Miss Cecilia
know about being a wife and mother,
being as how she is an old maid?
The late Thomas B. Reed, one-time
speaker of the national house of repre
sentatives, called by the opposition
"Czar Reed," had Colonel Roosevelt
sized up about right. Just before his
last illness he was the centre of a group
of politicians and they were discussing
politics and men. Finally, when they
got around to Roosevelt, Reed drawled:
"Y-a-s, I admire Roosevelt very much,
indeed; what I admire most about him
is his enthusiasm over his discovery of
the Ten Commandments."
The entire brotherhood of Twelve
Mile Riv'r, Pickens and Piedmont asso

state in sympathy for the bereaved
family of our dear Brother Walter E.
Wilkins. Sadly do we feel when we
think of him and know that no more
will we see his face beaming with smiles
nor hear his voice pleading with the
brethren for a greater missionary spirit
and praying to the God of missions for
istrength to do His work. May God's
e blessings rest upon the loved ones so
e sorely bereaved.

How a Georgian
,Lost 500 Dollars
A well-known business man of
Toccoa wvho, strange to say,was
not a subscriber to the Record,
paid this office a vist one day
last week and ordered the paper
sent to him regularly.
Not being a regular readei- of
the Record, this entleran had
failed to learn that a certain
tract of land was to be sold on
the 4th instant, and it was a
piece of property that he very
much desired to purchase.
"If 1 had been a subscriber to
the Record I would have known
about it and would have gone to
the sale," he said. "The prop
erty was worth $1,000, and as It
only brought five hundred, I
figure that I lost five hundred
dollars by not keeping myself in
formed as to what is going on.
I am going to be a subscriber to
my county paper regularly here
As ho handed over a dollar he
said he was not going to let any
more good things like that slip
by for the sake of saving the
Trice of a year's subscription to
his home paper, which he ought
to patronize anyhow. -Toccoa
