Some Things You Know and Some
You Don't Know About Our
Towns, County & People
-Court adjourned sine die
last Friday. J udge Aldrich was
well pleased with our town and
county and spoke most favorab
ly of the criminal record.
-Rev. N. G. Balenger filled his
appointment at the Methodist
church in Pickens last Sunday
and preached an excellent ser
mon. Next Sunday the service
will be a comniunion service and
church conference. All mem
bers are urged to attend.
-Mr. Livingston, one of the
linemen of the Southern Bell
Telephone Co., fel :oi a Ikle
this (Thursday) morning, while
at work and was killed, Mr.
Livingston was one of the line
men who put in the new line in
Pickens and the people of this
city will learn of his death with
genuine sorrow. He was splic
ing a cable in Greenville at the
time he was killed.
-Mr. J. F. Stokes, of Honea
Path, S. C., was in Pickens the
latter part of last week on a
business trip. He came up to try
and get up a trade with R. L.
Davis. Mr. Stokes has a nice
bottling plant and a splendid
business at Honea Path and need
a partner to help him push it Mr.
Davis will close a deal with him
if he can dispose of his plant here
at a reasonable profit.
-Oh, my: What a pity that
people will suffer with their
back and kidneys when relief can
obtained. All doubt and worry
is r ved and p relieved by
m's Backache
can obtain relief
, ne use of them, why not do
so? Those who have not tried
can learn of their efficacy by
asking fritnds and neighbors.
The Pickens Drug Co. Pickens,
S. C. are sole distrbutors and
sell ' -em a positive guarantee.
-Our columns are somewhat
congested with advertisements,
4ogal advertising. We ask the
adulgence of our readlers for
:arcity of reading matter. We
-ill improve and enlarge the pa
er as soon as we can collect
enough money from our sub
scribers to pay for new press and
the necessary equipment. The
sooner you pay for your parer
the sooner we can make the
contemplated change and neces
sary improvements.
-On last Wednesd av and
Thursday, Miss Bessie Partridge
had her millinery opening at
her parlors over Folger, Thorn
ley & Co's. store and the ladies
for miles around were in atten
dance, all commenting, admir
ing and trying on the latest pro
-ductions and creations of the
milliner's art. This is Miss Part
'dge's second season in Pickens
a'rd her quick judgment, excel
lent taste and ability to please
her customers has won for her
many patrons. Her goods and
styles are late models, being
that which is now being shown
in the style centres and the lady
that buys her head gear from
Miss Patridge can rest assured
of being a well-dressed woman.
-Some of our farmer friends
have been kicking to us about
other markets paying better
prices than this one. We are
sorry such conditions have aris
en, but are powerless to help and
the R. R. Commission cannot
handle such cases. If the Pick
ens buyers are paying less for
cotton than Seneca, Central,
Norris or Cateechee, there is a
reason for it and they should
explain. If they are paying all
they can, or all the mills will
allow, then the mills ought to
them give a chance to meet com
petition. We believe the two
buyers at Pickens pay all that
the mills they buy for wvill al
low to bepaid. Such reports
and such practices will hurt
Pickens as acotton market, and
should be looked intoiand reme
died. This should be the best
market in the up-country.
-On October 6th and 7th the
H.-B.-M. Co. will have their
millinery Opening. They have
changed their miillnery parlors'
and they are now upstairs over
>wee Bank. This depa rt
s presidled over by Mss
a most charming lady,1
me?nt Misses Gussie Cureton
.adLillian Bolt, two valuable
.assistants who will take great
pleasure in wvaitng on the trade.
'The H. -B. -M. Co. have dec
orated their store and will have
on display at this time a full line.
of ladies accessories, shoes, dIress
goods, etc. They have issued
invitations to their customers to
be present at the ooening and

London. Mfiss Bacon is a design

-Last Friday night Mrs. J. A.
Peek entertained the Epworth
League. Aftert a short business
session the meeting was turned
into a social gathering. Youth
and beauty yied with each other
in sparkling wit; memory's cas
ketwas pried open and the games
of long ago were indnlged in, the
conundrums of childhood's h our
again assailed us. The time
passed all too quickly for the
young folks, who, while "spin
ing the plate" were called to the
dining hall where refreshmehts
were served, the punch bowl be
ing presided over by Mrs. T. J.
Mauldin, most gracefully. The
witchery of the midnight hour,
when ghosts walk and hobgob
lins cause the loving couple to
fear to speak above a whisper,
drew near and the evening's
pleasure and ejoyment ternina
ted with the praises of all pres
ent being sounded that Mrs,
Peek is a most charming hostess.
By a rising vote the thanks of
the Epworth League were ten
dered Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Peek
for a most enjoyable evening.
These social meetings of the
League are great things and we
hope the members. will see to it
that they occur often.

$we don't zell cheaper away from home than we do at *
