''hursday, September, 4, 1902.
With cotton open in the fields,
fodder ripe on the stalk and elec
tions galore, the farmor has little
timo for play.
p . .
Pickons county counts amor.9
lor voters a big element of th(
most intelligent citizenship of the
state. It takes only a glance at
the tabulated result of the stat('
election to demonstrate this fully.
The fight is on in earnost botWe(' m
John Gary Evans and A. C. Lati
mer, 'I'his is raco on whieh boast
ful political calculators linmd it dif
ficult to settlo any positive opiniolS
thiS far before the oloction. Things
are crystallizing, howeve, and by
noxt Saturday the result may be
known with comparative certainty.
local pride always plays a con
spicious part in elections. This is
creditablo to any conmunlity when
the man put forwrd for llice
measures u) to the requisitos of
oflice, and there never was a timoj
more opportune for tho assertion of
the priviltge of hel1ping good nu1
to places of usefu1lnoss and trust.
Pickons showed up so w-ll in the
last election that politicians are
seeing the weight of our vote as a
factor in state politiCs. Pickens
County practically cast the deci
ding vote in the late race for state
Superintendent of Education, and
she may decide other results in the
second primary. This approxt
mate full vote is gratifying for
many reasoin, not the least among
which is the prestige and linpor
tance it adds to the county.
Some of the newspalpers of the
state would have us lOlieve that
the oloction of 0 B. Martin to the
office of State ;iSuporintendent of
Education will prove a public ca
A.ll the publbc school so~nse is
njot bottled up in Mr. MoMahan,
and Mr. Martin is as young and ac
twve and patriotic as Mr. McMahan
and perhaps quite as well informed
on alj matters appertainhing to the
omice, No doubt the business of
.t office will be carried on with
as good efTect as under Mr .
lahan, and we do beliue Mr.
M..ahan has worked retorm in
school matters of South Carolina.
When the Southern Railway
completes the scheme of double
tracking its line from Atlanta te
Charlotte, this county will have
added to her attractions the die,
tinction of having within her limiti
a p)art of' the truuk line of one 01
the greatest systems of railways ii
the world. Every improvemen
in augurated by this railroad moan
some advantage to Pickens county
and every element of growvth in thi
county means positive benefits t
the people. The legitimate ad
vancement of any enterprise mn:
a corresponding advantage to th~
people touched by it, and wh'len th
progress is represented by rail
roadIs, the benefits to ho dorive
ought to prove of lasting quality.
W. Jasper Talbert is essentially
politician-one of the smothiest at
ticles in that line that eor ''cam
down the turnpike." Hey ward is i
the midst of his list p)olitical figh~
with a lead that ought to flatter an
candidate for any oflico with suc]
an array of worthy comipeti tors
Some predict the result in Hey
ward's favor with assurance, othe:
good guessers shake their heads ir
doubt. This much to our mind
briefly stated, is certain;i Talberi
is hoping and mooving for suoccui
with deep schemes, well laid. I:
th. event of him election and e.
election two years hence, as Gov,
ernor, he will offer as the most for.
taidable candidate possible to im,
Itnagine in South Oarolina politioi
against 13. B. Tillman for the Uni,
ted States S3enate four years hence
With the State organised, himnsel
then Goveinor, he would have thi
leverage on any other candidate
The second primary election talli
## the ninth day of September,
Picketus county polled a handeotut

ship. The handsome vote polled I
in the first election evidences that i
Piokens county is growing and I
moreover that her people are tak- i
ing a lively interest in the affaire <
of local government. The succoss- I
ful candidates are grateful for the
confidence of their follow citizens
and the defeated candidatos have r
accepted the decree of the poople r
with grace undaunted an(f aro inl,

ConcerlIned, yt there has been it
enough of spirit, ilijectel into it to w
make it inost interesting. It is a w
crodit to Pirkonls county people ft
that after the heat of the political d

courage and the charity to bury ti
their )olitical differeoncos and join o
with on)e accord in helping the ad- h

JII the second primnary let every h
voter make it part of his ditty to y
comllo to the polil iad exercise his
high privilegos according to the
right conceptiOns of his duty as a n
citizen. li
Every vote counts one and reg
isters the free will and opinion of ti
the voter and gives the expression a
of his sovereignty in all matters of 0
government, It is the part of wis- i
dom to come to the polls on elec- s
tion day and exercise this privi- 1:
lege and meet this duty. Pickens n
county did not poll her full vote
on August twenty-sixth but on p
September ninth the opportunity t
will be given, in the real test of s
the public mind, to show what the 1
majority of the voters want. Let
every voter, duly qualified, come i
to the polls on that day and do his
The oflioo of Superintendent of
Education is open to the field.
Some excellent gentlemen have of
fered for the place, any one of
which would carry out the duties
of the offico thoroughly and with
fidelity. Trhe late Mr. Bright has
left a record in the administration
of the affairs of that offico that any
of them would do well to hope or
strive to emulate. ThIe unexpired
term will be filled by Mr. B. Frank
Freeman, nominally, while it is
understood that the perquisites of
the office will fall to the Missee
Bright who will continue to do the
routine work of the office until the
beginning of the next term. In
the soleotion of a genitlem.an to .fill

"Placing my men near the window,"
ho said, "so they can work in view of
the public. I don't know of anything
that catches the attention of the passer
by more quickly than the sight of a
demonstrator sitting close to the win
dow running a machine for dear life.
"Manufacturers of all kinds of goods
bave adopted this plan. Walstinakers
put their most skilled workers on exhi
bition to show how the finest garmenta
are cut and sewed. Cigar inanufactur
ers take the public into their confidence
[ad let them see the process of rolling
as performed by the cleverest hands.
Men who deal in mechanical contriv
rinces have found that it pays to have
at least one machine set up near a win
hlow so the crowd outside may observe
the intricacy of its parts and the rapid
ity of its action. Jewelers have station
ed their most expert lapidaries within
view of the street that possible custom
era may see how precious stones are
cut and polished and set.
"It isn't everybody who can work in
public. It takes a person with good
strong nerves and concentration of
thought to do dilfieult work in a show
window. I have men in my emuploy
who are excellent workers, but they
