Thp r 'rst Baptist church building at
Easle' was completely destroyed by fire
Sunday morning. The fire is supposed

No Booze Can Be
Shipped to Pickens
So far as ge ting w hiskey by expriess
is concerned P'ickens is now dry~3, andI
has been for about two weeks. The
Southern Expre~ss Co. has no office in
Pickens and~ it refuses to turn over
whiskey to the Piekens Railroad Cio.
UpJ until about two weeks ago a fellow
could order his gallon shipped to Pickens
and it caime all right, but now he has
to have it shipped to some point where
there is a Southern Express of1ice and
go andl sign in~ person for it. After
April 25, when the new~ quart-a-month
law goes into effect, there will probably
be no "ordlered likker'' in Pick ens, a's
no person would hardly go to the troule
necessary to get a quart and theni go
eighteen mile.s to Easley after it. That
is, it is nine miles to Easley. I f o'ne
