It was-but he is not.
ejnow scarcely anything about th
- Oolenyi valley, but things we have hear
about it have created a most favorabit
,pkesilon on our mind.
The 'popl of Oolenoy had a goo,
school building and in some way or othe
- Jt was destroyed -by fire. The citizen
4 ship of the valley did not sit down an
lament their condition, but with tha
g spirit that always means success thei
- arose with determination so that thei
children, whom God had given them t
train for the very best citizenship, shouh
o not be neglected; and before the ashe
,I of the old school building were hardl
0 cool the building of a new and bettei
house began just q few feet from whero
the other stood.
The people of Oolenoy believe that t<
give their children a chance to develoi
their God-given powers is worth mor
than land and money. - It will take mor<
than the burning of a school building te
keep such a community down.
The Oolenoy valley is one of the mos
beautiful sections of our county, with it
broad valleys, towering mountains an<
clear, crystal streams. And during sum
mer the most delightful breezes sweel
over the mountrins and valleys. Th
bottom land is very fertile and produce
We have a dream that only a shor
while from now a beautiful up-to-dat<
church house will adorn the hill over
looking the valley, a pastor will settl<
nearby, and large congregations wil
come together every Sabbath to heal
the word of God proclaimed by the mar
of God called to preach the gospel.
Prosperous farmers, educated citizens,
i progressive church and a happy com
munity with one of the very bestschool
in the state, and Oolenoy valley wil
blossom like the rose.
Till- l)eol)ie of Transylvania county,
N. C., who have been greatly interestet
in a good automobile road across th<
moun tains below them, should have theil
road officials to get in touch with oui
road officials and build a good road fron
Birevard to Pickens. The Picken
county officials are now working or
plans for the building of a good road t<
the North Carolina line and the Nortl
Carolinians would probably like to ex
tend it into their state. Such a roa
would not only be a great ponvenienc<
to our own people, but would cause i
great amount of tourist travel to com(
thru Pickens, and if summer tourist
ever get acquainted with Picken
they will insist upon spending a part o
their summers here. Besides, it woul
put us in closer touch with Wester
North Carolina, which would be well fc
t all. We are glad, indeed, that or
n su)ervisor and commissioners have di
h cided to build this road.

My auto, 'tis of tgee
Short cut to poverty
Of thee I chant;
I blew a pile of dough
On you two years ago;
Now you refuse to go,
f Or simply can't.
Thy motor has the grip,
n Thy spark plug has the pip,
ir And woe is thine;
I, too, have dreadful chills
And many other ills
Trying to pay my bills
Since thou wert mine.

In charging the. grand jury of Spar
tanburg county', .Judge Tr. J. Mauldin of
ePickens took occasion to declare that
the road qluestion conmes within the
scope of the grand jury's duties He
made the statement that more money is
wasted under the present system of
road-working than in any other dlepart
ment of county affair's, but explained
that he (lid not censure the road officials
but did criticize the people for permit
ting such a road system to remain in
force. The judge hopes to see the time
come when every county in the state
- wvill get value received for every dollar
- spent on road improvement.
