ntered at Ploken .o.tolee as Second Class
Mil Matter
The supreme court of Connecticut
has decided that barbers in that
state need not shave colored men, as
the barber shop is not a place of
public accommodation, within the
meaning of the law, and its proprit -
tor may make such rules of conduct
for it he pleases. Good enough law,
to be sure, but how comes such a
question before the courts of Con.
nectiout4 Surely there is no race
prejudice there.
There was a time when jug-break
ing was very popular. Children were
furnished miniature jugs in which to
collect funds for Sunday school pur
poses, and jug-breaking was an
event; but in these days jug-breaking
in South Carolina is not as popular
-with some people. Marshal Neeley
made the first seizure, and Friduy
was the first jug breaking in Pickens
county under the Carey-Cothran law.
On the public square Sheriff Jen
nings in the presence of an interest
ed and thirsty crowd emptied one
gallon out of as dirty and filthy an
old jug as ever contained bug-juice
What that old jug contained before
it became a receptacle for booze is a
mystery, but certain it is the owner
of the stuff is safer with the coutents
of that jug soaking the sod than
poisoning his system. If the stuff
must be brought into the count.,
for "Decency's sake" let the shippers
be decent., and put the stuff in clea.
vessels. The Hight of it was enough
to make a horse leave his oats.
Piedmont Light and Power Co.
And among other good things
comes light. What a blessing and
comfort it will be to those who are
e>mpelled to be away from their
homes after the shades of night have
fallen. 'The belated traveler as he
homeward wecnds his way o'er the
atones and through the mud after
making a night with the boys, fronm
the inrerunost recesses of his sou
will sing praises to the originator8 of'
the Light and Power Co. It was a
primitive sight on Sunday njghts 01
prayer meeting nights to wvatch tl e
lights coming and going like fireflies,
as the worshippers with their lan
terns wero homeward bound. But
things have changed and Pickens is
coming in out of the darkness, thank
goodness. A number of the substar -
tial business men of the town with
an eye single to the improvement of
4 heir town, met one night and after
talking the matter' over organized the
Piedmont Light and Power Co., and
almost befove the people was awake
to the faict of any talk of lights, the
con tract was let for a lighting plant.
The comnpanuy is incorporated under
the laws of the Siate of South C ir
olina for the puLrpose of lighting I y
acetylene gas and furnishing wate r
