Do your part to help this town
grow, as it is not going to grow
-by sitting around talking about
it. The work is what counts.
Time may be money, but
some how some of your friends
appreciate the money you spend
with them more than the time.
Some want the Tariff taken
out of politics. This is not the
only quality in which it resem
bles Prohibition. It prohibits
"Where there is unity there is
strength." Remember this
at all times and stand together,
as we will never advance our
city by pulling against one an
We are not politicians. We
want no office, and have no axe
to grind, We have the welfare
of the people of this town and
the surrounding country at heart
and if we cannot help to forward
the interestof both we are ready
to quit. But impiovements can
be made and our people made
to prosper, if we only stand to
Everybody is talking good
roads all over the country. How
about this county? The mer
chants, the farmers, and the
leading news papers say we
must have good roads. The peo
pie have realized the necessity
for good roads and their value.
Be up and doing. Talk for good
roads, work for good roads and
the automobile route.
When an observant person
notes a need and suggests it, it
does not argue that he is trying
to run the town, and only those
who possess the disposition to
"run things" will attach such
an extreme construction to his
interest If you know of any
thing that would be helpful to
the town, don't hesitate to sug
gest it, we'll gladly print it for
you. ________ _
Patience is a virtue that needs
to be more generally cultivated.
As a people the citizens 'of this
town are a restless set, impa
tient of delay and of opposition
and chafe under trial and adver
sity. The world was not made
in a day and neither can towns
be built un in a day, a week, or
a year. But she is growing ev
ery day, and will continue to
grow with push add energy be
hind her.
Who said Blacksburg wasn't
on a boom? Our people have be
gun to realize the fact that she
has got the best future ahead of
her of any place in the up coun
try. One thing, our natural ad
vantages give us the lead. Our
climate is the best, our farming
lands the finest, and our rail
road facilities are the best in the
county. Any one can get in and
out of our city at very near any
time, night or day.
"Some men enjoy work as
work, but there are still more
who enjoy standing by to see
them do it," remarks an ex
change. Our people here, or a
majority, have gotten over such
as this, and each one wants to
do -his or her part. This is one
thing that has put new life in
our little city, as our citizens|
have realized the fact that it
takes work, push an energy to
make a town grow.
Take life likea man. Take
it as though it was-as it is-an
:arnest, vita], essential affair.
Take it just as though you were
born to the task of performing a
merry part in jt-as though the
world had waited your coming.
Take it as though it w'ere a
grand opportunity to achieve, to
carry forward great and good
schemes, to hold and1 to cheer a
sufferin, wearv-, it may be a
broken hearted brother.-C'has.
The Rev. Anna Shaw was dis- I
,ussing playfully her contention
-raised at Mrs. Clarence Mack
xy's house-that man, not wo
man, was too emotional to vote,
says the Rochester Herald.
"Why," said the learned lady,
take all these extraordinary jury
stories. They show the most
intense emotionalism. And yet
they have nothing to do with
women. For instance, there's
the story of the tin can murder.
The jury remained out thirty
four hours. Then it filed back
into the court room, very stale
and ill-humored. 'Gentlemen,
what is your verdict?' said the
judge. 'Wall,' said the fore
man, 'eleven on us is for hangin,'
Jedge, Yer Honor: but the 12th
man sticks out for acquittal, and
there ain't no arguin' with him.
He's a low down, no' count
rooster, anyways, and so we've
decided to make our verdict un
animous by hangin' 'em both.'"
As He Sees It.
The newspaper man often
hears suggest- is. Frequently
tie is asked to call attention to
this or jump on that; occasion
illy he is threatened if he shall
lo thus and so, and once in a
great while he is commended
for something he has written.
But, philosophically, he pursues
the even tenor of his way,
knowing that he cannot please
all the people some of the time,
using the judgement with which
he is endowed,and influenced less
by hope of pecuniary gain,
words of praise or threats of loss
or violence than by the desire
and intention to do the right as
he sees it-to act fairlv.-Ex
County Dispensary Graft.
7kfew days ago this writer
was told an interesting incident
in connection with the manage
ment of the county dispensary
of one of the counties that re
tain this system. The gentle
man who related the story re
quested that his name be not
used, if the story was published
and for that reason neither
name nor place will be mention
ed. The story is a true one and
every statenient can be verified,
the writer was assured, there
fore it is too good to keep.
The facts are as follows, ac
cording to the relator, who said
that the story was told to him
by a member of the dispensary
board of county.
A month or two ago the dis
pensary board placed an order
with a certain liquor house for
a quantity of whisky, the proof
and quality of which were
guaranteed to be the same as
sample submitted with bid.
When the liquor arrived the
board, for reason not stated.
suspected that it did not conme
up to sample, so it was submitted
to reputable chemist to be tested.
The chemist reported that the
whisky was not as good as the
sample and it was under proof.
The liquor house was communi
cated with and the report of the
chemist laid before them. They
came down at once, like Davy
Crockett's coon, without forci
ble measures. They left it to
the county board to name the
terms of settlement. The board
decided to pay for the whisky
on the basis of the chemist's
report and sent a check for the
amount deemed fair and just.
The liquor men promptly sent
a receipted bill and a credit
memorandumi and a letter of
thanks-and in addition there
was inclosed in the same letter,
but without a word of explana
tion, a fifty dollar bill. It is
said that the bill was returned
to the liquor house by the next
mail. The relator of the storyv
also saidl that he had heard that
the dispensary board of another
county had had practically the
same experience with the same
liquor house. Neither story r
fers to Sumter coenty, nothing
of the kind having occuredi
The story shows that the li
a~uor houses are still inclined to

Fair Meeting.
Another meeting of the Pick
ens County Fair Association wO
held in the court house Friday
afternoon at 4 o'clock.
The attendance was good and
every one present showed a deep
interest in the success of the Fair
next fall.
All the committees have been
appointed and they are urgently
requested t) get together as soon
as possible and get their work in
It is the purpose of the associ
ation to interest every man, wo
man and child in Pickens county
in the Fair to make it a greater
success than the one last year
for it means a great deal to the
farming, stock and business in
terests of the county.
Let every one go to work now
to have some thing in the Fair,
talk for it, work for it and coniia
to it. and it will be a big success.

The Telephone Girl.
The telephone girl sits still ir
her chair and listens to voices
from everywhere. She hears al
the gossip, she hears all the news
she knows who is happy and wh<
has the blues; she knows all ou:
joys, sorrows, she knows every
girl who is chasing the boys; she
knows of our troubles, she knows
of our strife, she knows every
man who talks mean to his wife:
she knows every time we are out
with "the boys;" she hears the
excuses each fellow employs:
she knows every woman whc
has a dark past, she knows every~
man who is inclined to be "fast;'
in fact, there's a secret beneath
each saucy girl of that quiet, de
iure-looking telephone girl. If
the telephone girl told all that
she knows it would turn half
our friends into bitterest foes;
she could sow a small wind thai
would soon be a gale, engulf us
in trouble and land us in jail; she
could let go a story which, gain.
ing in force, would cause half
our wives to sue for divorce: she.
could get all of the churches mix
ed up in a fight and turn all our
days into sorrowing night; in
fact, she could keep the whole
town in a stew if she'd tell a
tenth part of the things that she
knew. Oh, brother, doesn't it
make your head whirl when vou
think what we owe to the tele
phone girl?
A Beautiful Story of Love.
Many curious stories were told
in Messina after its disaster, ac
cording to Robert Hicheds, who
has written for the Century
Magazine of his exneriences and
observations, "After the Earth
quake.' One of the strangest
of the stories he heard he tells
as follows:
"A woman after the shock
was buried alone in her room.
The door was blocked byV fallen
masonry. There was no means
of ingress or egress, and the rest
of the house had fallen in ruins.
She was uninjuHredl but she was
imprisoned. In this room she
remained for eight days. It
was a bedroom and contained
no food. During the eight days
she gave birth to twins. When

Gentlemen-Answering your favor
of the 7th will sty that after pr.P nping

of fertilizer to the acre bfore pltating.
At the second plowing I applied four

blooms appeared I apilied seveity
pounds of nitrate of sxda to th.- acce.
I did this on sixty acres of land whech
I planted in cotton and on the six

eight balts of cotton, averaging 511
pounds to the bale. And then, when
I thought I hadi g:.t tiered tle crop after
Christna;. I ;-iied enough cotton to
make 712 pouudIs of iint cotin sa i will
be seen that altogether I mdle more

D~ear Sir: I have your letter ef June
4th, and in reply will say that my ex
per ience in side dressing corn last year
is as follows: In onue fill of about 15
acres which I planted in corn I side
:iressed 10 acres and left fit e acres not
side-dresed. O~a the 10 acres which I
3ide-dressed I made 35 bushels to the
Icre. On the five acres not side dressed
the yield was not over 1I bushels to the
icre. It cost me about 0 to side dress
the 10 acres; about $3 per atcre. It indg
areased the yield at leami 25 bushels of
aorn per acre. I inte i nloside dress
ing thei wh-l( 13 acres but rain came on 4
Indl continued so long until the corn
was too far advanced before I could get
to it to side dress it. It will pay any
>ne handsomely to side dress corn.
Yours truly,
You will see what side dressing has
lona for Wade Drake and Jim Steven
