No Unse Against Furman I4older
Dr. W. F. Flowers, a veterinary sur
geon of Easley, was arrested in that
town Monday night, May 15, and his
Overland car was confiscated by the
town when the policemen found four
gallons of whiskey in it.- He was tried
by the town authorities and fined $100,
$25 of which was suspended during good
behavior. The automobile will be sold
in Easley to the highest bidder.
Furman Holder of Pickens was driv
ing the car at the time of the arrest
and has come in for a great deal of un
deserved notoriety on account of it, and
he wants some correction made about
it. It 'Was published broadcast that he
was arrested, locked up and would be
tried in two courts on account of it,'
when as a matter of fact he was never
locked up and has not and will not be
tried in connection with this unfortun
ate affair. At Doctor Flowers' trial
the doctor swore that Mr. Holder was
dri ving the car for him because he <Dr.
Flowers) was intoxicated and unable to
drive, and that Mr. Holder did noteven
know the whiskey was in the car.
Monday Dr. Flowers made a trip above
Pidkens to see some sick horses and on
his way back to Easley he stopped at
J. D. Holder's to see a hqrse which he
Lhad 'been treating for -Mr. Holder. See
ing the doctor's condition 'and fearing
that he would be unable to get safely
home by himself Mr. Holder telephoned
his son Furman to come over and drive
the doctor to his home in Easley. This
Furman agreed to do and when they
got to Easley the policemen' made the

Harvey Alonzo Richey
Harvey Richey is no more. After an
energetic life of duties well performed
in this world his spirit is enjoying that
contentment promised the faithful.
Harvey Alonzo Richey died at his
home in Pickens Friday morning at1.80
o'clock, aged 68 years. His health had
been failing for about a year and he
continually grew weaker. His death
was not unexpected.
The death of Mr. Richey caused sad
ness over the entire community. He
was probably the best known man and
knew intimately more people than any
other man in Pickens county, and all who
knew him were his friends. It will be
a long time before the people of Pick
ens become accustomed to his absence.
Mr Richey was born November 15,
1848, in the upper part of Anderson
county. When he- first left. home he
went to Gaineville, Ga., where he en
gaged in the mercantile business, and
there married Miss Belle Williams in
1869. , He later returned to Easley and
was employed in the store of Tom W.
Russell. He with A. G. Wyatt and W.
J. Roark .later acquired this business.
In 1884 he was elected sheriff of Pick
ens county and moved to Pickens. His
record as sheriff was splendid and he
served two terms, being succeeded by
J. H. G. McDaniel. In 1896 he bought
the assigned stock of goods of Suther
land & Griffin and again entered the
mercantile business and continued in
business at the same stand until the
time of his death. He ws successful
in his business ventures and accumulat
ed much property. In early life he join
ed the Fairview Protestant Methodist
church and remained a member of that
church until his death. He was con
verted under the preaching of the fam
ous Caleb Smith, He was married by
the celebrated Preacher Burdine.
Mr. Richey was a man oui of the or
dinary. He was a man of excellent
habits, fine character, extremely honest
in 411 dealings, and of sturdy constitu
tion, and he continued to be active in
his accustomed pursuits till long past
the age when men ordinarily drop out
of the ranks of the workers. He bore
adversity bravely and enjoyed prosper
ity quietly. He had filled th.e various
positions of life, as son, husband, fath
er, brother, friend and public officer,
and filled them well. Who can do more?
Mr. Richey is survived by his wife
and eight children, as follows: Mrs.
Flora Lathem Arnett, of North Carolina;
Mrs. Dora Thompson, Mrs. Nora La
Boon, Mrs. Olga Goodwin and J. T.
Richey, of Pickens; Mrs. Cora Martin,
of Anderson; Mrs. Ola McKagan, of
Greenville, and Mrs. Sadie Williams, of
San Antonio,, Texas. His eldest son,
Homer, preceded his father to the grave
many years. A brother and sister also
survive-W. C. ('Squire) Richey of
Easley route 3, and Mrs. Sarah Wyatt
of Easley route 5. Besides these are
many other relatives in this section.
The funeral services were conducted
Saturday afternoon by his pastor, Rev.
Mr. Lamar, assisted by Rev. L. E.
Wiggins and Rev. John C. Bailey. A
large concourse of sorrow ing friends
were present to pay the last sad rites.
The body wvas laid to rest in the Pickens
cemetery. The active pall -bearers were
his grandsons, Willie, Homner and Toomer
Thompson, Harry LaBoon Richard Mar
tin and Aif W. Tfanner.
Would that we could express our feel
ings over the departure of this friend,
but our pen is far too feeble. To the
bereaveq ones wve extendl sincere sym
pathy and point to them the wvay he al
ways bore his sorrows.
"Tired! ah, yes! so tired, dear,
I shall soundly sleep tonight,
With never adiream-andj never a fear,
To wake in the morning light."

member of Cross Roads church 60 years
and had been married 58 years.
-She was a remarkable woman'in many..
ways, and it is said that she was never
kn~wn to speak an ill word of anybody
nor speak a harsh word. She wA6 an
every-day christian. The beautifyhig.
influence of a pure religion were spread
over a life and character as spotess'
and charming as was ever possessed by
any of the noble women'who have died
during the ages that have passed. As
such a life was a blessing arid benedje-,
tion to all within the sphere of its influ
ence, so is the death of sucha one E
public misfortune, as well a:s irreparable
loss to the home circle made desolate
by her departure. It is difficult to pay 5'
a tribute to the memory of so noble a
woman-one whose every-day life was
embellished by the most charming and
lovable attributes of her sex. A per
feet lady at all times under all circum
stances, she seemed born to inspire the
love and respect of all who were so
fortunate as to be acquainted with her.

er, she leaves the following children:
Mrs. Sallie Fendley, of Greenville coun
ty; Mrs. Josie Tompkins, of Texas; J.
Marion Looper, Mrs. Nannie Kenne

of friends and relatives.

"Smooth the locks of silver hair,
On our mother's brow with tenderest
Gather the robe in final fold
Around the form so still and cold;
Lay on her bosom, pure as snow,
The fairest,sweetest flowers that grow,
Kiss her and leave her our hearts de
Her pain fs over, she sleeps tonight."
Deep is the gloom among those who
knew this good woman, who has left a
place which cannot be filled. After a
long, busy and useful life she died as she
had lived-honored, loved and trusted.
She reared her own monument while
she lived in the hearts of all who knew
