'Pickens Physician in France
American people everywhere are in
tensely interested in the series of ar
ticles ~which have recently appenred in
0 the Saturday Evening Post by George
Pattullo. lie gives us such a clear
picture of the khaki-clad soldier in
France. Hie mingles among them and
gives real experiences. In the Post of
April 20th he gives "Dirty Work At
Crogsroads." In this he pays a tribute
to the mule drivers of the ammunition
and- supply wagons. He tells of the
mountain boy from T1ennessee with his
slow tongue but big heart; of his grief
when htis pal was carried to Hospital
No. 13 to be operated on. He also tellsj
us of his visit to the front; of what he
heard and saw there. In enumerating
, the disagreeable things which one en
-counters on the front lines he men
W tions "mumps." It was from this dis
ease that he was suffering when he was
a patient of Dr. C. W. Smith, a Pickens
-physician, who is now with Hospital
Red Cross Fund Committee
* 'The estimates committee of Pickens
County Red Cross Chapter, consisting
of thirteen business men of the county,
met in the court house on the night of
May 16 and made an estimate of what
each person under the jurisdiction of
Pickens county chapter would be asked
to give. A committee of two will wait
on each person between May 20 and 27
and the estimates committee respect
fully asks each person to give the
amount aked, or more, as the men who
9 come to see you cannot take less.
Red Cross Proclamation
President Wilson appeals to the
American people on behalf of the Rec
Cross whose second War Fund Cam
paign to raise a hundred million dollar
begins on May 20 and continues through
May 27. His proclamation establishing
Red Cross Week follows:
"Inasmuch as the War Fund of 191'i
so generously contributed to the Red
Cross for the administratian of relief
at home and abroad has been practi
cally exhausted by appropriations for
the welfare of aur military and naval
forces and those dependent on them,
and for the yet more urgent necessities
of our allies, both military and civilian,
who have long borne the brunt of the
war; and inasmuch as the year of our
own participation in the war has
brought an unprecedented demand upon
the patriotism and liberality of our
people and has made evident the neces
sity of concentrating the work of relief
in one main organization which can re
spond effectively and universally to the
needs of humanity under stress of war;
and inasmuch as during this war the
closer and closer co-operation of the
Red Cross with our own army and
navy, with the governments of our
allies and with foraign relief organiza
tions has resulted in the discovery of
new opportunities for helpfulness under
conditions which translate opportunity
into duty; and inasmuch as the Red
Cross War Council and the Red Cross
Commissioners in Europe have faith
fully and economically administered the
people's trust; now, therefore, by vir
tue of my authority as president of the
United States and president of the Red
Cross, I, Woodrow Wilson, do hereby
proclaim the week beginning May 20,
1918, 'Red Cross Week,' during which
the people of the United States will be
called upon again to give generously to
the continuation of the important work
of relieving distress, restoring the
waste of war and assisting in maintain
ing the morals of our own troops and
the troops and people of our allies by
this manifestation of effort and sacri
fice on the part of those who, though
not privileged to bear arms, are of one
spirit, purpose and determination with
our warriors; in witness whereof I have
hereunto set my hand and caused the
seal of the United States to be affixed.

seventh day of May, Anno Domini One
Thousand Nihe Hundred arid Eighteen,

States of America One Hundred and

Dots Along Little Eastatoe
As I have been silent for a long time
I decided to let the many readers know
that there is still such a place in exist
ence yet, with a few inhabitants.
We first want to go back and recall
an incident that actually did happen.
We all know that there were some
eighty-odd boys called from this county
to go to the army about the 22nd of
last September. They were first sent
to Camp Jackson, then to Camp Sevier,
Greenville. The thing we want to say
is this: About one month after they
reached Greenville, Daniel Winchester,
a Confederate soldier, visited the camp
and there he met his own son, Ben T.
Winchester, and grandson, Homer E.
Winchester, on the camp in the service
of their country. We feel quite sure
that few men who have been in war
themselves ever live to see their own
son and grandson preparing for the
battlefield together. This seems to me
most remarkable. We hope how soon
the Germans will see their mistake and
surrender, and oifer peace terms suit
able to the whole world. May the good
Lord bring about peace soon!
Miss Blessie Seawright, of Anderson
county, taught a very successful term
of school at Antioch last winter. It
closed some time ago with a splendid
entertainment. The scholars showed
that they had a fine teacher and in
structor and that they took advantage
of the same. Professors 1". V. Clayton
and George E. Welborn were both
present and made inspiring and appro
priate speeches. The trustees of the
school secured the services of Miss
Seawright for the coming summer
term, and we congratulate them on so
" Miss May (ilstrap taught a two
months term at Shady Grove last win
ter, and as soon as it was out there
was an opening at Peters' Creek school,
which she accepted. That school was
out on the 3rd of May and she decided
to quit teaching and go to housekeep
ing, and on Sunday afternoon, May 12,
Miss Gilst rap and Mr. Chester Dacu:

Mrs. Mary Gilstrap is still very low

Dr. H. E. Russell
Prominent Easley Physician, Be.
loved By All, Passes Away.
Dr. H. E. Russell, onesof the most
prominent physicians of this county and
of the Piedmont section, died suddenly
in Easley about 6 o'clock Thursday
afternoon while making a proressional
call. He was apparently in good health
and spirits when he entered the home of
a patient and was about to take a seat
when he dropped forward and died al
most instantly. Dr. Russel was the
fourth practicing physician to die there
within the last four years.
Dr. Russell was about 48 years of
age, was a native of Easley and had
spent all his life there. le had been
practicing medicing here about 18 r
years. lie graduated from a New
York medical college, lie was a mem
ber the Presbyterian church and for
year was a deacon. 1)r. Russell was
patriotic and ever ready to lend a hand
for the upbuilding of the city, and was
noted for his friendly disposition,
kind sympathy and gracious manner;
and was universally popular and his
death will cause deep sorrow in this
city and county. He was a member of
several secret orders. At the time of
his death he was local surgeon for the
Fifteen years ago he married Miss
Sallie Lou Starke, who survives him,
as do three children, Essie, Julia Starke
and Earle, Jr.; his aged mother, Mrs.
Alice Bruce, who resided with him; one
sister, Mrs. A. T. Folger, of Detroit,
now on a visit at his home, and an
uncle, John A. Russell, of Greenville.
The funeral service was held Friday at
i; o'clock andi were canducted by the
Rev. Dr. E. P. Davis, of Greenville.
"Give Us A Chance"
It is now a fact thai We have the
I $250,000 bond noney for good road
building already available turd a road
commission which has started to build
ing good roads. I can imagine the dif
ferent sections putting in claims for
roads which they wish to have built and
no doubt this takes up a great deal of
t time of the commission, There are a:
- great many things to l' considered
s since these roads are to he built, and as
1 live in the upper section of our county
I will partly give my views as to what
l I think we are entitled to.
Now, the Southern Railroad, which
runs thru the lower section of our coun
ty and pays an enormous part of these
bonds and taxes of our county, should
be considered. The people who live
along this line think they are entitled
to all this money, but as I understand it
the whole county voted the bonds to
build this railaoad and are therefore en
titled to revenues from the road which
should be dlstributed in each section of
'fake schools, for instance: Under
our present law the districts along the
railroad can vote two or three mills levy
andl get more money with their other
taxes than they need, wvhereas it takes
ab~out eight mills iin other sections and
it is all paid by the people in the dis
tricts, when they are really entitled to
a part of this railroad tax money, This
is making it very hard for people who
are not 'so fortunate as to be situated
along this fine railroad which runs thru
the lower section of our county.
In the first pla5ce, Pickens court house
is our county seat and I think should be
thle starting Ipoint. for the building of
these roadls. iLet the commission decide
which roads should he built first', but I
think the wyork should be0 started from
the courthouse. This would be sure to
suit all sections of the county, as -there
are times when it is necessary for all to
visit the county seat.
Now, as to the up~per sectionis of the
county. We have timbers of all kinds
and can raise vegetables as well as
corn and other crps The towns need
all this and we need to raise it for them,
but wve have got. to have roads before.
we can dleliver it. The railroads would
be glad to haul our timber and crops
and would like for their taxes to be
tspent in develop)ing our section of the
county, and I think this is the proper
time to give us5 a little help. I am
- uite sure towns along the railroad
-would 1)e benefit ted by our timbers and
Now, $250,000 will not top soil all the
roads inI Pickenis county, and what will
k th)e upcountry do0 if the money is all
used up in the lower section of the
3 county'? Naturally dIhey can out vote
a us and wvhen they get good aoads sym
s pathy only would give us a chance.
My views are to he liberal with the
S upounItry and we wvill repay you with
y (our timbhers and produ0ce. So ''give 13s
