OF THE.FOOTHILLS Eim #
A NEWSPAPER WII A CONSCI ENCE
VOLUME 52-NUMBER 6 PICTENS, S. C. TIISDAY JUNEA 1922
Many faces among our beloved vet
erans will be missed this year. Let's
make the day all the brighter for
those who are still with us.
The ladies of Pickens county are
requested to meet in the court house,
Saturday afternoon, June 3, at 3 o'
clcek, when a matter of interest will
be presented to them. They wll be
detained only a few minutes, so let
every one be prevent.
The Pickens Chapter U. D. C.
takes this opportunity of expreessing
to its many friends its appreciation
of their ec-operation in the past, and
of asking for a continuation of their
interest and kindness. The chapter
will be most appreciative for any con
tributive to the picnic dinner on June
3, and extends a most cordial invita
tion to its friends to join them.
June 3rd has became the outstand
mg day in the year for the citi:ens
of Pickens, when they in mass, do
honor to the Confederate Soldiers.
Pickens county sent a noble band of
men to battles for "State's Rights,"
and the younger generation is inleed
fortunate in having so many of these
veterans in their midst whose worthy
cxn;le it is wcll to emulate.
Our honcred friend, Col. W. B.
Allgood, whcs health has been im
paired for two years, thinks that he
will be able to Come to town ne::t
Saturday and mingle with his com7
rade3 of other (lays. We hope to
sec him on that (lay.
Only a few more years aie left to
the veterans of the 00's, so let eveiy
body come June :, who can and honor
tie grandest ai my that ever shoul
dcrecl a gun.
An attractive feature of the days
eiiturtainment on June 3 will be an
exhibiiorn drill by a picked squad of
the Headquartcrs Company 118th Inf.
National Guards of Easley.
The Pickens U. D. C. requests that
all the people of the surrounding com.
munity who love the old soldiers, help
to make the 3rd of June the best and
greatest day Piekens has ever had,
anld if they can not each one bring a
full basket, let them contribute a
chicken, a cake, some pies or anything
else they choose toward the dinner.
Some of the ladies of the town are
very anxious that we have a "clean
up" day. This is a wise 'dea and
may mcan much toward the making
of good health for our place, so let
us all get together and by June 3rd,
have it all shinning, spick and span.
The U. D. C. requests everybody
who will contribute any relic for
keeping, to bring same to the court
house on June 3rd. A committee
will be there to receive it andl place
of it, sign your name and lend or give
any article that your people usedl in
the war of the 60's wvrite the history
of it, sin your name and lend or giv e
it to the U. D. C. It will be proe
servedl with care.

IN MEMORY OF JUDGE J. B.
..As June 3rd draws near our minds
are naturally turned to the thoughts
of the soldiers of the 00's.
Among these honored heroes, Judge
Newbery, who died a little more
than a year ago, fills a prominent
place in our memory. We have learn.
ed from his good wife, who still lives
among us, that he was born in Dar
lington county on June 21st, 1837,
and he moved to Andeson county in
1860 and married Miss 'l'irzah Bur
On July 1st, 18(11, he enlisted in
Co "K", 6th Soueth Carolina regi
ment where he s( rved until the 11th
of Mlarch I(2. T'l's rerimetreach
ed Maunassas on July 21st about the
time of the famous battle of 13u11
Run. He joined the Virginia Bat
talion as a private and after the
death of one of the Lieutenants, he
was promoted to fill his place. This
remetion came for exceptioaa! gal
lant services and he served in this
cenpacity until the close of the war.
His part in the war was that of city
gumd at the Confederate capital at
Richmond. About a year aftcr he
e'listcd he was taken sick with a
terrible abscess in lis head which
caused him to have to go to a los
pital. Ilis wife heard of this and
was determined to :o to him. On
arriving in Rielchmond she went to
the hoe :ita! and asklc for him, but
he had been trans fered to Danville,
Va., unbeknown to hospital authori
ties, so he was reported as dead to
histwifc. With sorro.ving heart Mrs.
Newbery returned to her home in
this state where she remained
mourning for her husband for mor e
than a month. One day on picking
up a Richmond paper he saw in it
an advertisement for a trunk signed
by his wife. He knew at once thrt
she had been in that city, and made
strenuous efforts to find her. She
Vefnt at once to Danville and together
they went back to Richmond, he to
his duties and she as a nurse in the
A.fter the war they setled in An
derson ecunty where he lived till
1872 wh . i he mi:ed to Pickens and
estab!'shed the first circular saw mill
operated in this county. In 1887 he
was elected to the office of Proba.e
Judge which he held until his death.
He always took a cep interest in
the welfore of the old soldiers and
their widows, and his memory will
ever be cherished by those whom he
loved and served so faithfully.
DEATII OF IRS. E IE MAUL
On the night of May 13, the angel
of death came to Lando Mauldins
and claimed his darling wife. She
was about 45 years of age. She had
been in bad health for about 2 years,
yet she bore her suffering with pat
ience. She leaves her husband and
five children to mourn their loss:
Gladys, Marie, T. S., J. B., and little
Ruby. But may they realize that
their sorrow is 11er great joy.
Before her death she told her
'loved ones that she was "going to
Heaven" and oh! wvhat a great con
solation that is.
She wvas before her marriage Miss
Bettie McClellan and her aged moth
er andl thrce brother's and one sister
She wvas a member of Camp Creek
Baptist church. She was buid on
Monday at Camp Creek. Funeral
service wvas conducted by Rev. P.urits
amlid, a large cr'owdl of sorrowing
relativcs and friends. T'he many
beautiful flowers showe'd the high
esteem in which she'was held. Bett'e
was alwvays so kind to the sick; she
was lovely and lively. Her loved
ones have the sympathy of the entire
community', but may they look to
.Jesus who alone- can help them, awl
each one be readly to meet heri in
the Great reunion in Heaven some
"sweet (lay after' while."
"Hier pain is gone she is at rest,
Hecr trials are forever past,
She now is in the city blest
And rapture thrills her soul at last.
At Heaven's gate her loving smile,
Her1 tender' voice and outstreched
Will greet us in a little while,
And1( welcome us to that dear' land."

thaniks to these wvho so kindly camne

thiis I: fe, and1( wh'ln calle-111, may they

THE UNIVERSAL TRACTOR
Fordson Often Does More
In a Day Than Six Horses
The Fordson substitutes motors for muscles.
The Fordson substitutes tractor wheels for the
legs of man and horse.
The Fordson takes the burden off flesh and
blood and puts it on steel.
It allows the farmer's energy to be devoted to
management, and not merely to operation. It
gives him time. It cuts his producing costs.
There's a big story of savings maide possible
by the Fordson. Let us tell you. Write,
phone or call.
