WE NEED THEM
The people of Pickens and surround

efforts being made to get an exprese
ard telegraph office established at Pick
ens. There Is no doubt In the world
that these offices are needed here and
that as long so we are denied them we
s are being discriminated against. We
believe if the people take thoj proper
interest we can at least get the express
E office now, and perhaps both offices.
- We hope to have some good news along
this line before long. In the meantime,
- talk it up.
EVERYBODY appears to take it for
