With the copious showers of
late and ' plenty of sunshine,
-verything of a green nature is
growing fast and looking well.
Well, the little place of Norris
is no longer to be a broad place
in the road, but hereafter is to
be styled a town. It has been
incorporated, with Enos Tate as!
intendent, and J. C. Garrett,
E. C. McWhorter, W. R. Johns-'
ton and Dock Newton as war-'
dens. L. P. Moser is the mar
shal, with W. Maddox as his
assistant. . They have been
making it hot for the trans
gressors. One coon caught a
freight train to steal a ride.
He was caught and fined $3;
released on the promise to
pay the fine in so ma ny
-days. When time was ip the
marshal went to collect the fine,
the coon refused to pay it, and
marshal went to arrest him,i
when coon showed fight, and
did fightlike a bulldog. After
sro long(. a time-- coon was landed
in guardhouse aid marshal left
with one shirtsleeve and a very
sore arm. Coon was given a
sentence of $103 or 36 days.
Up to time of this writing, coon
is still in guard house, with a
cheap pencil and a piece of . aste
board, figuring whether to take
-an appeal or take the dvs.

Hencry Rampey. of Cateochee,
was fooling with a dynamite
cap a few days ago, when it ex
ploded and took off his thumb
and a part of his forefinga,-r. As
3-Jenry could not work, he went
nut. walking to pas away the
-ime and to forget the pain of
his hand, when all at once a
rattesnake with 16 rattles and
a button asked him to fight or
r1n. Henry replied that he had
but one hand, but that he came
not of the stock to run. So the
light took place and Henry caime
out on top. Dr. Woodruff now
carries the scalp Henry raised
from his snakeship-16 rattles.

wvorship, b~ut the latest thing
*out along this lino is a patent
John James, of Central, has
gotten up. Any man of brains
and a small amouint of capital
can, of course, build one, but ve
have it f rom good authority that
John -will proscoute any one in]
terfering with his rights. It is
built out of forks, pine poles and
cotton bagging. For further

Well, as "Bonnie Blue Eyes"
knows so much obout the bo
quet that was given to the "Old
Bachelor," she nust have been
one of the girls that gathered
the tiowers. Ha! ha! If we
mistake not that is the first let
ter ever prepared by "Bonnie
Blue Eyes"for the press, and as
young as she is we feel under
obligation to commend her.
She is mighty sweet, anyway.
Come out, candidates, and lot
the votbrs know who you are and
what you want. Rumor has It
that Norris has one aspirant for
the legislature, who has it under
deep considerotion.' If he de
cides to run and is elected (and
we believo he will be), Pickens
county will be taken ca re of so
far as he is concerned. We hope
he will decide to run.
We hope the Democratic Ex
ecutive Committee will give the
Cateechee voters a chance to
hear the candidates some Sat
urdayay lafternoon. They,have
no chance otherwise.

As I haven't writeiu to you
Or some1 time, I will give you a
ew itemis from Pearidge.
Health good an(d crops look

We are, however, having too
nuch rain. It has been raining
oiwo weeks, and we have
ome grass; but if the stin will
;hine a few day.; we will soon
ix it.
They have the best crops on
J, M. Childress' place that were
.ver known for the time of
Riley Porter has tlie finest
piece of cotton on Pearidge.
W. H. Coleman is the proud
ast man on Pearidge. Last
l'hursday morning I heard him
whistling and singing as If
nothing ever bothered him, and
inquiring why he felt so good,
was Informed that there was a
new baby girl at his house.
I noticed in last week's paper
where one of your correspond
Bnts asked something about "Red
Rose." Roses came and roses
have gone, but something has
come I like better. Peaches and
apples are In, and I like them
a great deal better, I have some
for some for myself and some
for you, If you will only come
over. I think I will have some
watermelons, too, after a bit.
If you will come over In about
three weeks I will give you-one
weighing between 60 and 70
pounds. REn Rona.
No Such Good Luck, Gentlemen. C
There is a persistent rumor
being circulated in the town of
Pickens to the effect that the
editor of this paper was going
to move to Ninety-Six, S. C., to
run a paper, one person we have
heard of going so far as to as
sert that the family of the
editor was going on the ne
train and that the editor would
pack up his office and belong
ings and go as soon as he could
get away.
We do not like for people to
miake mistakes. or misrepte!
sent facts, knowingly, and If
these people who are so Infer
nally interested in the move
ments of the editor, or his fam
ily, will come to headquarters
for information we will treat
them with all the courtesy that
they are entitled to a'.d cheerful
ly answer Lny and all questions
pertaining to our movements and
go into the minutest .details of
our business with them, even as
to, so far as we can, map out
what we expect to d'o for the
nux ; ten years, if we are per
m.tted to live so long.
No ,use to makre a misstate
men or give a garbled report,
when you can get a correct one
just for the asking. Who will
be the first to make inquiry?
Pickens-R F D 2.
The people of this section are
still alive and active; fine crops
adorn the hills and valleys, and.
it seems that nature has pro
vided luxury in abundance.
Plenty of fruits of every kind,
and the watermelon problem
looks very favorable.
Several from about here took
advantage of the cheap rates
and made a very pleasant visit
to the grand old "City by the
Sea," during the last few days.
We invite all who have not
been to go, for there is plenty
to be seen on such a trip.
Cadets Claude Boroughs and
Calvin Garrett, of Clemson, are
spending their vacation at their
C. R. Abercrombie has a very
sick child.
It is about time for the sum
mer schools ,to begin, and we
wish that each one may put
forth their best efforts to have a
good school, not only this sum
mer, but all the time. If we
could have longer terms and
good teachers -in the prepara
tory schools, boys and girls
would not have such a hard
time when they entered a higher
school. We ought to -study
about these thin-gs more, and,
you know, when we have
learned "to think," we have
made a great start.
Best wishes to all.
A beauty cure that is engag

only fault is that it is ridicu
