A Cltisen Speaks Out Por Pickens.
I note that very little has ever
been said about our town, its nat
ural advantages, climate and uni
limited resources of' the town and
mrronnding country.
First. Few people have ever
thought that Pickens is, for a fact,
mes of the best places for selling
goods in this whole up--country
his fact is evidenced, for instance,
,y the enterprising firm of Heath.
Bruce-Morrow Co. They were far a
ighted men who came from a die
ance here and located one of the
argest department stores in the
tate, carrying in stock at least
$30,000, and why? Because of the
tide territory surrounding, and a
noductive soil, which will be and
s now being rapidly settled up by
brifty farmers and business men.
rh merchants of Pickene are do,
ng at least 100 per cent more busil
less nlow than they were five years
Seconld. Piekens county IS teemis
.ng with miner'als of all deserip
ions and hardwoods of all kinds
~re in abundance everywhere.I
say what can hiindor the town of
Plckens frorkx being a thrifty, thriv
ing city, situated right in the heart
af all the natural advantages.
Third. There is no locality in
the whole of our loved Piedmont
section that has such a wonderf ul
olimate, and there is no reason why
our town should niot be one of the
first Summer resorts of the up
country, equalling if not superior
to Asheville, N. 0.
Citizens of Pickens and our
rounding country I Let us be tip
and about, and all pull together
for the building up of our town
and country.i I notice that a Real
Estate Agency has been estabhsuh
ed here, let everyone who has prop
erty to sell place it in the hands of
these gentlemen, placing a mnoder
ate price upon it, and we will cer,
