evils the world has ever known. Yet
now, because some people thins the
national prohibition act an unwise law
a restriction of personal liberty, a
restriction of the right to get dead
drunk, abuse the family, commit crime
etc., they are willing to violate it and
see it violated openly. These same

selling it. The buyer 'f liquor is

E'very lay there Imlay be seen11 on
L the streets of Pickens a man of small
stature and thin gray whiskers walk
inl-g. slowly with his stick. lie is|
ra seventy-seven years old, fought in the
se Confederate army and for two years|
en carried in his hip a minnie ball re
ceivel in battle. One of his hands
is also disfurgured by wounds re
ceivel in battle, and he was a prom
inent actor in the most perilous times
this state ever saw. A few years ago
he saw his wife. his life companion
of more than fifty years, laid in her
grave. Although the winds of seven
ci tyseven winters have beat about his
noble head and turned his hair to
frosty white, and he has been through
many great trials, his faith in God
m has sustained him all the while and
al; today he greets every one heartily
rt and with a cherry smile. lie is Rob
ert A. Bowen of Pickens.
Mr Bowen was born four miles east
_ of Pickons court house June 7, 1844,
a son of Mr. and Mrs. Reece Bowen.
- At the age of seventeen years he v4-|
ha unteered for .ervice in the Confeder
Mi ate any, serving under Capt. Ham
Pi iilton Boggs of Pickens county in Co.
E, 2nd Regiment, South (Crolina
Rifiles. le was in several of the
Irv bloodist battles of the war and his
_ comrades say that he was one of the
I bravest soldiers in the army. At the
, battle of Frazier's Farm it is said
[)t that after he was incapacitated by a
Im wound in the right hand he ran out
( in front of his company and waving
nu his bloody hand in the air cried,
"Boys, you see what they done for
me, come on and give it to 'em." It --
was also in this battle that he was
rshot in the hip with a minnie ball and
rendered unfit for further duty in
the arm y. The ball was take:i out
two1 yearas later in Charleston.
A ftler the war and1( during recon
~st ruct ion diays he was a leader among
the D emaocrats of Pickens county. In
fact. it nuay be said that R. A. IBowen,
U lajor 1). I-'. Bradley, Col. R. E. Bow
eni and1 Dr. W.. TP. Field were the
standard bearers of Democracy ini
iPickens county du'ring these troubu
bous days when it was not easy to be
a Democrat, lHe is particularly proud
of the fact that he has always been a
staunch Democrat and that the party
has been as true to him as he was to*
it. In conversation he often repeats
the statement that he wants to be
~~ lacedl on the Democratic party's "roll
V of honor.' Useless to say his name
owv is on it.
ier Mr. Boweni was a men'ber of the
l'IF Pickens county Red Shirts and he
Iar has seen negroes serve on juries and
---equilaz~ation boards in Pickens county.
I R. A. Boweni was the first clerk of
11nd court of Pickens county, ser'ving one
'- term of four years. lHe was the coun- 1
----~ty 's second school commissioner, )
- serving a two-year term. As school*
ecommissioner, he was promised a sal
--ary of $800 a year, but as there wvas
not enough money to Qo aroundl it
was apportioned and he receivedl $60i 4.
