For fear the readers of The Sen.

thought the pgnehl pusher of said
village had better try to get his
thinking faculties in operation and
give a few scattering dots.
Ii days of yore the biennial issue
for the month of July and August
was politics but things have changed
and the lcading topic now is boll wee
vills. The sack and bucket brigade
. can be scen perambulating the cc:
ton fields daily. Some are picking up
. the l'unctured squares while others
- are not. One certain farmcr says

Comfle to the funcral. Be that as it
y may they are here and the report is
n they are doing a goed deal of dam

paper by Mrs. Frank McFall was read
at the recent joint meeting of the
Pickens D. A. R. and U. D. C.
Not only did our forefathers leave
a goodly heritage of. courage and
leadership, but the many thurches
which they organized stand as a nion
ument to their religion.
That they were a God-earing peo
ple, keeping the faith of their fath
ers, we know by the distances they
travelcd to church, usually on foot.
Major J. M. Stewart of Pickens,
who is now over eight., speaking of
his boyhood days, remembers a Bap
Cst Covention in North Carolina whln
th d(lagates from Pickens District
vwent in such crowds that they looked
like an army marching. To hear him
tell about it reminded us of "Onward
Christian Soldiers,'" and we wondered
how many of our people of today
e uld be pursuaded to go <.n a journey
like that.
IHe says that the year 18:2 was
mrkud by such a spreading of the.
as has never been known, in
the:.' 1arts, h( fore nor since. AndI
it was about this -time that many of
our1 country churches were organized.

In 1790 Hopewell or what we know

It is also Presbyterian.' The first

Tradition says it was burned, cttch

the present stone church was built,
by subscription from the iiembers.
