ago, and diedl ,uly 1, 12i, patriotic to
the last. He' was, asevery school boy
knows, the author of the lDeelaration of
Independence, but many of thi'm do not
know that he was twice presidlent of
the United States, vice-prleside(nt and
secretary of state, governor of Virginia
and father o f the University of Virginia.
lHe was a politician, amateur scientist,
linguist, fiddler, mathematician, the
inventor of the plow, now in use in all
the civilized wvorldl, was the father of
the idea wvhich resulted in the invention
of the reaper. lHe gave his idleas to the
son of Cyrus McCormick, a blacksmith,
and out of those ideas came the Mc
Cormick reaper, one of the greatest
helps to agriculture ever known. But
above all lhe was the great'Democratic
statesman who believed sincerely in the
people and their right to rule them
selves. "Jefferson Day'' dinners wvill

his honor by all loyal Democrats, and
by some wvho are not so loyal.

Booker is "off his nut," but lie is ver)
much mistaken' if he thinks Picken
county doesn't have a field day for its
children. Pickens was one of the pio
neer counties in this work and doesn't
arrange it as most of the other counties,
because there is too much on the pro
gram each year to crowd into one day.
Instead there is one night for the girls'
declamation contest, one night for the
boys' orato-iical contest and one day for
the field events. The girls' contest was
held at Central last Friday night, the
boys' contest will be held fat Easley
next Friday night and the field clay ex
ercises will be held at Easley Saturday
of this week.
It will not be amiss to call Editor
3ooker's attention here to the fact that
the champion team of last year's Pick

a few weeks later and literally 'clean

schools, winning first place over teams
from every section of the state. Oh,
