Soll your cotton at home, and
trade with home merchants. This
is good business.
The col strike is over and fuel
prices are coming down within the
range of an ordinary man's pocket.

Ootton keeps rolling into Pickens
because Pickens, even without a
cotton mill, pays prices that bring
it here. Our buyers are live mi
-they pay the top of the market.
Let every farmer and every bus
iness man lay the foundation
broad and dep for a truly success
ful year in 1903. Now is the time
to commence if we have not al
ready begun, and every day that
breaks with cheerful sunshine or
comes with rain should find us bus
ily making ready to take advan
tage of the good things to be of
fered to us in 1903.
Personally, it is none of our bus
iness, but speaking from the stand
point of one deeply interested in
the good of every citizen
citizen and in the public growth
and general prosperity, we want'to
say that we are delighted to hear
merchants speaking of good collec
tions and good business, to know
that old debts are being marked off
their books with the significant
word "settled", and that there is a
feeling of independence and liappi
ness, the result of plenty, promi
nent among the majority of our
people. Economy and hard work
did this. We want to see it re
peated next year.
Pickons county is sooi to have a
new jail complete and ready for
use. It appears to be a model
structure. planned and built af ter
a design which represents the re
sult of .long study and expor.ence
of experts who have made
this braneni of architecture a
specialty. Mr. Grandy, the con
tractor, is rushing the woric and
when it is finished It will be anot h1
er advertisement of his ability toi
execute and his thorough equip
ment for all classes of building.
This is a humane step on the part
of Pickens county, and the Super
visor and Commissioners may
congratulate themselves in that
they have at last sueceeded ini do
ing a thing which only the lack of
available funds prevented. thenm
from doing before. This jail ii
artistic in arrangement and safi
for its purposes.
We bever tire of singing thi
merited praises of Pickens county
There is not to be found. a bettei
field for the investor who seeks t<
place his money in manufacturing
enterprises, or for the man of hum
ble means who wants to build
home and enjoy the peace and thi
pardonable lordly mastery of hii
own vine and fig tree.
In manufacturing, this county'i

There is energy that it is beini
asserted in Pickens county, but
there is an infinitely greater
amount of it going to waste, while
opportunities are drifting by ci
going neglected through sheer in,
difference of the people. What
the people ought to do-what
many of them are trying to do i.
to get out of debt and on the cash
basil, no matter what the publio
debt may be, and set to work to
develop their own belongings when
unity, through a combination of
interests, will naturally bring into
existenoe larger enterprises and
broader public development,
The School law of South Caroli

courage a liberal patronage of the
public schools. If the people d
not take advantage of the system,
its plan is practically a failure,
and its good effects will be lost
in every community.
The provisions for special dis
trict taxation by which it is made
possible for bettor schools to be
operated with longer torms is a fea
ture of the law that appeals to the
broad-minded, and every omrn1
nity has it within its range of
possibilities to operate a school
for nine months in every
year, simply by voting and levying
a special tax, which will carry the
schocls longer and after bettor
methods, and prove cheaper, in
the long run, than the ordinary
subscription school, and bring in
initely better results.
The Trades Display, planued
and carried to success by the busi
ness people of Greenville and all
public spirited citizens interested
in the growth and proper advor
tisenent of their city, is a sugges
tionl to the business men of towns
and cities not so largo as Green
ville. .What a place-a place with
possibilities of urowth-needs is
thorough but true and legitimate
advertisement, and in this kintl of
a movenent, Pickens might inter
eat lorself, assured that all her
supporting country would take an
interest that would insure the pres
out success of the enterpriso with
effective and visible results in the
near futuro. The accomplish muents
we have wrought are mainly the
results of the very advantages to
which our people, after long delays
have finally set their thoughts and
hands to develop, and those re
sults are but suggestions of the
things that can ho done through
united eflort, and the exorcise of
confidence and patience and faith.
Every public enterprise not only
helps the individuals having uon
ey invested for the purpose of
making money; but it h0ps to
bring the people of a coninunty
into closer relations and to realize
their inter-dependence and the
good of organization. It atimu
ates to the planning of other en
terprises and engenders a spirit of
fowardness that augments the la
tent desires in every community to
see that the cormnuity Prospers,
and if there is not sufficient capi
tal at home to do the things the
people want, they will not be long,
under united effort, in impressmp
the fact of the fitness and readinesi
of their community for the devel
opment that would be welcomec
and aided by every citizen in it. Th

There is nothing more necessary to health
than sleep and rest. If these are denied.you,
if you rise in the morning more tired than
when you went to bed, there is an affection of
the nerves plainly present. If your heart is
weak, or there is an inherited tendency i:
that direction, your weakened nerves will
soon so affect ydur heart's action as to bring,
on serious, chronic trouble. Dr. Miles' Ner.
vine is a nerve tonic, which quietsthe nerves.
so that sleep may come, and it quickly re.
stores the weakened nerves to health and
strength. Dr. Miles' Heart Cure is a great
blood and heart tonic which regulates the ac.
tion of the heart, enriches the blood and im.
proves the circulation.
"Some time ago I was suffering severely
with heart trouble. At times my heart would
seemingly stop beating and at others it would
beat loudly. and very fast. Three to four
hours sleep each night in ten months was all

think everybody ought to know of the mar.
