THURSDAY, SEPT.14, 1911.
While nothing has been said
concerning the Pickens County
Fair, the committee has been
hard at work making arrange
ments to give the people of the
county the best time they have
ever had at a public gathering.
Plans have been somewhat
changed this year, and those in
charge are endeavoring to fur
nish as many free shows and
general all-'round amusement
as possible, converting the fair
into a sort of general rejoicing
and merry-making-a sort of
gala week, so to speak.
Of course, there will be shows
for which a small admission
will be charged, and every one
should bring a little change
along with which to see the
wonderful exhilbition of Wild
West lassooing and riding of
bucking horses and the like
which will be on hand.
The shows for which adiis
sion will be charged will be np
to-date, clean and first-class in
every respect, and will be vell
Worth t h sinal cost if adiis
Aniong the fre attractions
will be the daily balloon ascen
sion and daring parachute leap
Races will be held taily-trot
ting and running- and a 1)irse
will be awarded to the winner
of each race.
There will also be a number
of minor attractions, but the
main feature will be the daily
exhibition of high- 4 walking
by Jack Taylor, wvho is unques
tionably one of the boldest and
most daring high-wire perform
ers in the United States, He
will perform upon single wire
running from the two tallest
buildings in Pickens, in the pres
ence of all.
Let everybody conme to the
fair. It is free foi: all, and you
are all invited. It is your fair,
and gotten up for the benefit of
the people of Pickens connty,
and every man, woman and
child in the county should feel
that they have a right to be
there, and be there they should.
We hope that no man in the
county will be so selfish as to
leave his wife and1 children at
home wvith this opportunity of
witnessing this wvonderful event
within their reach. If he will
only take the trouble to bring
them to Pickens on one or more
days of the Fair.
Everybody wvho comes will go
home well satisfied after three
days of perfect enjoyment.
Remember the dates-October
3, 4 and 5-Tuesday, Wednes
day andl Tr1lsday.
There will be several br'ass
bands on hand to furnish music'
throughout the three days.

"Judge Bob Peebles has for
somle time exemplified that no

fact that a court has no right to

the further fact that it is not

T the time of this study Daniel
had been long in service, wise
and faithful in his adminis

;rusted to him. He had seen the
Babylonian Dynasty perish. In its

Prayed Three Times Daily
Daniel lieaird of the decree ht:t alter
ed not his clustom of pralying t rlite
times dily before a wIndow of I.ls
house whih looked out toward .eruia,
lem. Morning. noon anid night he re
membered his God and his vows of
faithfulnes to Him and called to
mind the gracious promises respect
ing the Holy Land, that it would yet
be the center of the whole earth anid
of God's holy people; that eventually,
through these, Divine blessings would
be extended to every nation, people
and tongue.
Unquestionably the best men and
women in the world are those who
pray, and pray regularly, who bow the
knee, as did Daniel. Unquestionably?
it is impossible to live a consecrated
life in neglect of prayer. What would
Daniel have been without his prtaying
time! How would his loyalty to prin
ciple have maintained itself in the
midst of corruption had it not been for
his communion with his Maker? To
the Christian this privilege is still
further enhanced by a realization that
"We have an Advocate with the Fa
tiher, Jesus Christ, the Righteous."
