Col. C. L. Cureton of Pickens at
tended the big celebration in Charlotte
Saturday and as a member of Governor
Manning's staff occupied a seat on the
reviewing stand with President Wilson.
After shaking hands and talking with
the president Col. Cureton admires him
more than ever. He says the president
asked him all about his friends in Pick

in Pickens was for him except two, and
they would be for him when they quit
taking T. W.'s Jeffersonian.

Messrs. John A. Horton and Jesse
Kay. of Belton. were in Pickens a short
time Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Horton
is a candidate for congress an has just
returned from a visit to every county
in this district. He says his candidacy
is being received most encourag'ngly
by the people everywhere, and tat he
is being assured of support in every
section of the district and his chances
of election look brighter than ever be
fore. Those who keep posted on poli
tics consider him the l eadi ng candidate
in the race. He is the first candidate
to announce his platform and it ap

Mr. Irvin Miller is out with a vigor
OUS protest against the pouring out of
whiskey in front of the county jail and
we believe his protest is just. When
whiskey is poured out at this spot it
runs down the side of the road just past
Mr. Miller's house and he says it places
temptation in the way of those near by.
Besides this his chickens have learned
a trick or two a nd when whiskey is
poured out they make straight for the
ditch and begin to get gay right away.
Mr. Miller says the last time whiskey
was poured out every chicken he had
became intoxicated and one died from
the want of a drink the next morning.
He wants to train his chickens up in
the way they should go, but is unable
to do so as long as the county authori
ties persist in their present habits. He
shioulId get out an injunction.
