tMy Country 'Tie of Thee, Sweet Land
Letter to Gen. Pershing
Ge;n. . ohn J. I'ersshin,
Somewhere in France.
Dl) nI I.';sti :- I see by (he ppers
that you have got old aide de camp in
the army and it gives me both pain and
anti pain to acluir e knowledge of this
news informations. lie will make you a
mity good man but it shorely greeves
me most greatly to lern that the olh
man has gone to putting on airs amd
changed the spelling way of his name
Over nere when he was printing pub
lishing and & issuing the Gafiney Led.
ger and Grit & Steel and being pronmo
tor of publicity and bill poster &c in
(Gaf'ney Cherokee county S. C. he spell
ed his name plain Ed 11. DeCamp and
it were by that name that he made
many friends much fame and money for
himself and acquiredi a ford & it shure
ly nearly brings the salty tears of sor
ror to my heart that after all thape
., . more or less religious life he
ehuld want to change the spelling way
of a onered name for I am afeard he
don't want his old friends any more.
guess you are <iite well known acquain
ted with the produce of his printing
presses in the shape of the Ledge
which is published(3) time a week a
2.00$ a year per ann un in advance &
he was sued for several thousand dol
lars($) by a Bleasite onet and also hi:
Grit & Steel paper which tells about al
kinds of chickens both male and femal(
and circulates all over the world ani
Mexico and is the favorite family jurna
of Mr. Villy a prominent Mexican citi
zen who I guess you have heard o
as he use to be in the generaling busi
ness the same as you yourself Thi
mentioning of Mr. Villy also makes m
mention that aide de camp (Ed H
DeCamp is his unadulterated name
mI;,.Gesembles and looks like Vill
ibout the face .and nushtash accordin
to them that are friends of both tho a
I am only a friend of the party of tli
first part of my own personal knowin
and information to the best of mv abi
ity I culd not positively say for shur
but it is my opinion that they both do
I forgot to tell you at the beginnin
-of this letter that you wuld be sur
prisedl to hear fronm nme as me and *yo
have never been formerly introduce
but in times like this when bleedin
* ~ Belgium is being tromnied upon by th
hobnail boots of the brutish Hun an
* christianity is being bitterly assaile
by the unspeakablo Tlurks and the sul
tan in his harumr and democracy an
baseball hangs in the balance I say wi
shuld not let such little things bother ui
and it is on Ed D~eCamps acet that
take my feeble pen in hand to drop yor
these few lines I shure am greeven
that he has changed hris spelling nam<
amnd I hope lie has changed his wayr
You will find him a nice man in ever)
particular if lhe thought he culd fool m<
by spelling his name just aide de camr
he is mistaking arid he ort to have mad<
a bigger change if lie wanted to foo:
such fellows as know as much as whal
1 do tho of course there is not nmany of
that kind at the present writing But
the important part I want to give you
intelligence about was his looking like
Villy and what a big scheme you and
me could work out by letting the Ger
man Hluns see him amnd make out like
he was Villy over there in your army
and fighting we shiuro culd lix up a good
trick on this Persh old boy but dont
forget he is not V'illy shuro enough but
Ed DeCamp (disguised as aide de camp)
aind the only part that puzzles me is
hwwe culd get him to fight but as
this letter is getting too much in longi
tude I will have to leave that part out
and let you know about it when I am
not so busy. I wishit he hiadnit changed
his name tho for it would a been not sc
complicated to fix up our trick, but I
dont think it will have much affect on
the election which will transpire next
.Aug when Cole Blease and Nat Dial
will contend for the senatorial toga in
the grand and glorious old Palmetto
state (which Is g, C.) Gussa you heard
that Ben Tillmian was buried last month
and Is dead, yes old Bien Is gone and I
trust he isin a better place than Wash.
mngton, Candidates is not coming oui
fast in Pickens co & nobiody is taking
much interest in politics but them whra
s running which is not many but cours
its no use to write you the ne~ws who
you can see it all in The Sentinel,
road that you had -lots of Sentinelsi
your army Persh old1 boy and right the
I knew you were all right Okeh for thi
" se '4 .t0' (or you t'ri :he 3 lv i s
miii.y t O) I'Lrsh atid w setn it is foJ
yod' who can be against you? But a:
the longer I write the more lengther
this letter gets and as I must soon quil
I will close for this time and we will fib
up that trick about making out like Ec
Do Camp is Villy and scare the dickens
outen them devilish Huns and bring
this here war to a speedy and victorious
close. This leaves me well considering
the prohibition sentiment in these parts
and I hope it finds you the same.
Yours for victory,
Cicero Scipio Pluto Smith.
P. S. also N. B.-Being as how I tak
en a great intrust in you it mite be just
as well to mention that if you have the
above mentioned and aforesaid party
over to your tent to play a little social
game of poker it wouldn't hurt none to
keep 'our eye peeled. C. S. P. S.
, . With Pickens
From a Liberty Boy
Editor Pickens Sentinel: !'lease al
low mei spaeO in your paper for a few
lines as I am a Pieaens county boy.
Hlave just returned from a twenty-four
hour visit to New York city and it sure
is some town. But oh! you Coney
Island! There is anything there which
is to be seen. God must be merciful to
let such things go on. It's nothing to
see men and women walking around
hugged up and kissing and sitting in
saloons and drinking, and most of the
women didn't have on clothes enough
to wad a shot gun. Had much rather
be back in dear old Liberty, for that is
where I left my dear little wife nA
kin.! " -'
.u parents. But we must wir
this war regardless of home. I hope
some day to return to (lear old Picken:
county, but had rather die in defense o0
my country than be a slacker at home
Guess we will be going over soon and
want to get one glimpse at the Kaiser
for I have a good rifle, believe me.
Will close with best regards to al
the Pickens county people and editor o
this good paper.
With a long good-bye and luck to yoi
all. Pierce F. McCall,
Camp Miller, 323d Inf., Co. C, Long
Island, N. Y.

Gary liott must have married a most
amiab e woman, else she would never
stand for a paragraph like this one, ta

woman who make$h a good pudding in
silence is better than she who maketh a
tart reply. "
From The Pickens Septinel it is noted
that the family of Editor Hiott is visit

count for his pulling off such stuff as
this: " 'Merely a matter of form,' re

r Registration Falls Off
d Not as many voters registered it
g Pickens county this year as in 1916
. According to the club rolls turned ove
it to the county chairman 2665 voters ar(
a registered. This does not include the
g precincts of Easley Mill, Norris, Loop
er's Gin, Liberty, Central, Calhou:
s and Pleasant Grove, the club rolls o
which have not yet been received b
the county chairman. At the sam
rn boxes which report the above enrolJ
n ment this year 27641 votes wvere casti
to the people of the Palmetto
State. Fbr these result.,
aside from the millions of
dollar, loaned to the govern
muent, the June campaign was
Sully worth the effort. The
people now realize that when
they do without nongeseen
tlal articles and lend the
money thus eaved to the
government, they are reteas

ed in prosecuting the war.
"The great popular success
of the camipaign is due to
several causes: to the win-*
