mile south of the site of old Fort

of the Keowee river, is one of the
eldest cemeteries in Pickens county.
which is known as the Craig and
Alexander grave yard.
Many members of these two old
prominent Fickens county families
are here buried as is witnessed by
the fact that more tlhan a hundred
graves are visible. A large number
of these graves are unmarked. Prob
ably the first marked grave is that
of Johnnie Craig who was a revoL.i
tionary soldier and was buried one
hundred and ten years age. Accord
to his request the following epitaph
was inscribed on his tomostone:
"Free Trade, States Rights, Liberty

to be the grave of John'Gresham who

owned a considerable amoutc of land.
It is thought he was a relative of
Col. Joseph Gresham who lived a
long while at Old Pickens.
Several Confederate soldiers are
buried here, among them are W. M.
S Craig, John Craig, A. R. Craig, L.
C. Craig and E. B. Alexander.

Craig was elected sheriff of Pickens
District while serving in the Confed
erate army in Virginia, and a few
days after has election, was wounded
in battle and died a few clays after
reaching home. He Was never
sworn into office as sheriff.
This old historic graveyard has in
the past been sadly neglected,. but
recently the Craigs and Alexander's,
as well as others who have relatives
buried there, have done a great (ea!
of improvement, and theit' purpose
is to beautify it still more. T. A.

CORN CLUB SHOW A SUCCESS
Lewis 'Black, Bristow Banks, Zif lie
The boys corn club show, an an
nual affair, which was held at the
court house last Saturday was the
biggest success in the history of the
show. From the standpoint of num
bers in attendance, both boys and
their parents, it surpassed all prev

winner of second prize, and Zeffie

most interesting talk.
Immediately after the speaking the
74 boys present were taken to the
Pickens Inn and given a sumptuous
dinner. After dinner loaust beer was
served them in the good old fashion
way. In the afternoon the moving
p'cture show was thrown open to
them and the picture "School Days"
was thouroughly enjoyed.
During the day 20 new members
were taken in making the total en
rollment for the next year 250. This
is the largest enrollment ever reach
ed, and the work for next year bids
fair to surpass that of this year.Much
credit fqr..this is due to -the interest
that the boys parents are taking in
the work, as well as to the untiring
effort: of county agent T. A. Bowen.
Next week the campaign for new
members will be renewed and every
schocl will be visited.

has been caring for a fine bunch of
motherless children who could not
get 'into our other Orphanages For
four years the waiting list has been
growing at the rate of 90 per cent.
The Home, says the Superintendent,
has been able to take about one child
out of every ten who ask admittance
into it, until now we have nearly s'x
