PICKENS--THE GEM THE OFFICIAL
OFIFOHPAPER OF PICKEN
VOL. 51, NUMBER 10 PICKENS, S. C., JUNE 30, 1921. S CRIPTI $1.50 PERYEAR
A "humdinger" is what Dunl
Botts would call the Pickens-Glen
wood baseball game played on the
Sickens mill diamond Saturday; ,Car
ter i atimer and other sure enough
sport writers would probably rife
to. it ,s a"rze-azeae"
"one o f those hectic affairs;" but al
that ot e could expect a sport writei
on a wleekly paper to say is that it
C. ME game. Well, it was al
of tie' e gs together. Pickens
won the gan. in the thirteenth in
ning by a\scpre of 14 to 13. It was
one of then mst interesting and ex
citing games ever played here, fur
;ishing all v rieties of plays fron1
the big leagu , brand to the Hogwal.
Pickens app rentlv had the game
won at the be inning of the ninth
inning, but Glenwood made three
runs n the niidith, tying the score.
Pickens could ,ot score in her half
of the ninth. (Mace hit a home run
for Glenwood ihl the tenth, but Pick
ens tied it up 'again in her half,
Then Glenwood looked like a win
ner by making twg runs in the elev
enth, but the lad.s 'on the Gem of
the Foothills pushed ,over two in their
t:' sf and they had to play some more.
Nr ither team could score in the
tuwelfth. Glenwood ,was blanked in
the thirteenth, and Pickens counted
the winning run in their half with
Casey Porter and Hagood Bruce
were probably the most scintillating
stars of a luminous constellation, tho
ethers shone with censiderable spar
k.e. Porter pounded the pellet to
th'e tune of two doubles and two
*sing'les and around first base he field
ed a million. Bruce got four clean
singgs, one of them bringing in the
.tying run in the eleventh inning.
With ;erfect support he would also
have b'W credited with a shut oui
game in nine frames. Glenwobd
made five runs in the first inning
after the side should have been re
tired. Between the first and ninti
innings Bruce allowed only two clear
hits and he fanned eleven batters
,during the game. Adams for Pick.
'ens got a triple and two singles and
scored the winning run in the thir
teenth. Hawkins baberuthed the
ball to deep center with one on ir
the sixth and Mace for Glenwood
also hit for the circuit in the tenth.
Pace made several nice plays in cen
4terfield. Hansell Bivens had an off
day in the field, but he redeemed
himself at the bat, crashing out a
triple in the tenth and scoring a tying
run a moment later. , His long fly t<
right in the thirteenth inning als<
enabled Adams to tag third and score
the winning run.
Hopkins who replaced Lawrence as
*pitcher for Glenwood in the sixth in
nling, pitched well and drove in hit
team's tying run in the ninth. H<
,also drove in one run and scored an
-other himself in the eleventh.
A large crowd witnessed the game

Claud Hester, of Pickens, who re

lowing letter to Henry Ford, wel
known automobile manufacturer:
Mr. Henry Ford,
It gives me great pleasure to hay
the honor and the occasion to writ
to you, you being the founder an
manufacturer of the world-wide imo
tor vehicle known everywhere a
Ford, Tin Lizzie, Flivver, Jitney an
so on, famous for rough riding, back
firing and high kicking. Of cours
I am not finding any fault with then
understand; for I have driven on
five or six years. The only troubl
is I must have got hold of one tha
was not thoroughly broke. I ha
kept it so long that I had all the con
fidence in the world in it, but to in
sorrow my Ford turned out like Ju
das' kiss. It wasn't satisfied at giv
ing me a rough ride at all times, be
sides the knocking, skipping, fixin,
blowouts, drying out coils and s
on, but the other day I started t
crank it up and it kinder back-fire
a little. Me being an old Ford drive
I just walked around and cut thi
spark entirely off and went back t
the crank only to have my arm di:
located and broke all at the sanm
)time, then it spit in my face an
) called me nigger. I took cold fet
) and run. I left this Ford still bacd
a firing and it may still be doing til
D same thing for all I know. I thougi
I would just write you so you coul
8 be on the lookout for it, as I gue:
it has gone back to the herd. It sui
is a good thing Fords are not lil<
1 mnilk cowvs, for if they were I al
0 afraid you would have a hard tiny
0 selling the ones that kick. Bi
0 after all I can't find much fault wil
2 them, as 15 cents worth of gas,
(ldime's worth of oil and a good hei
1 of water will constit'ute a day's ru

A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION.
On last Saturday, June 25, the
chlidren and grand chlidren, friends
I and neighbors of Mrs. Ann Keith met
at the home of her son, William C
Keith, to celebrate her seventy-sixti
. birthday. The crowd there and the
great baskets full of good things t<
eat showed the love and esteem ii
which she is held.
In the afternoon we had some goo<
singing. The day was spent very
pleasantly and we were sorry wher
the time came for us to part.
I want to thank all who were there
for their kindness and respect for
the family. Our hearts were made
sad by the absence of some of the
children and grand children. But I
hope and pray that in the great re
I union up yonder they all will be pres
ent, there to remain an unbroken
a family around the throne.
May this not be the last birthday
for this dear old lady.
God be witi you all till we meet
again is the prayer of one who wishes
