Friend Jim:
In line with your oth

sections I have Ito births, doaths 01
inarriages to chronicle, neither do
I know "what fellow called on whose
girl last Sunday,'' and it would
hardly ho the proper thing to in

in their storo cloth es, and blushing
like school girls, visited inl this
section Buiiday, I have no news to
I am not out in the sticks for fun
or health, but for the purpose of
increasing my limited stock of "fil
thy lucre" and the same tuie add
ing to the appearance ot some of
tho improvements on "Big Easta
too", for this beautiful valley is
keeping pace with the balance of
the county and fast getting out of
the woods.
Farmers are somewhat behind
with their Work, but crops are "'bang
up' and growing at a tremendous
rate and the entire valley bears the
"ear marks" of prosperity.
Mr. Will Ellenburg has erected a
fine roomy house. This is why I
am out oil "Big Eastatoe", giving
the building its color, from found
ation to roof and from cellar to
garret. Standing on a hill the house
colmonds a magniificient view and
ii itself a land mark for many
miles around. As this is the first
houso on the big Eastatoe ever to
receive a coat of paint, I am some
what "stuck" on the honor
Now don't shake your head, and
look doubtful, for it a cold fact,
that the past Sunday I attended
''preaching." On the maxim, "bet
ter the day, better the deed," the
good people thought it their duty
to have the church painted and at
once set about raising the funds
and in an hour's time gave me the
* work and I suppose they now con
sider it my duty to give them an
'up-to-date' 'three coat job." As
some one has said, "show me the
churches and the school houses, and
I will read the character of the peo
ple," the outside world will have
a high opinmon of the people in the
country surrounding the Eastatoe
The people of this section are a
grateful class, but they are entitled
to a big kick against Uncle Sam 's
mail facilities. There are two mails
per week at thlis office, and as the
aha fthe incoming mail, a per.

ttrvlfifteen miles, is not much
* credit to our Uncle Sam's boasted
rapid transit. This section should
have at least a thrice a week mail.
but as it stands, a wonderful im
provement can be made without;
* trouble or expense. The mail from,
the county seat Is now carried to
Nine Times, an office four miles
the main line of travel, where it
remains over three days, while the
carrier goes on to Sunset daily. By
sending this mail on to the Sunset
office on the main line of travel to
the county seat, people could gath.
or up their mail at least once in a
soason. Newspapers are too old f< r
use ag'*rapping paper when they
arrive and we never know whena
Sunday comes, only by keeping tab
on a stick or watching a preacer
on his rounds. It is a shame

This section is very much inter
e~sted in the movements of the En
gineer corp Surveying a line across
"Filthy Lucre." 4
the mountains to Soneca, S. 0. p P
learn that they are at or near "Dev. a
ils Hole" about three miles from t<
this place, and have run a very sat. t
isfactory Jine to that point. The 0
building of this line means much 8'
for this section, and a4Lo to Pickens, ti
Easloy and the lower end of the 0e
county. Trade and traffic gener. W
ally drifts to, and follows the near. b
est railroad, and a large amount of si
trade from the Eastatoo, Laurel and t
Crow Creok sections will be diverted I n
from Pickenis and Eabley.
This dividing of trade was mo3t P
noticeable after building of the "
Transylvania road through the g
French Broad valley in North Caro- t4
liua. Before the building of that w
road almost the entire trade of that d
mnouintain section crossoa the moun. c
tains to Greenville, S. 0. In those it
days Greenville merchants were b
heavy users of space in the moun-. 9
tain newspapers. Today ynu could kc
not give space in a mountain paler
to a merchant in that city, the ,
trade having followed the line of 0
roa.1 to Asheville, liendersonville at
and other points. Naturally a
portion of this business will come
back over the mountains, on com
pletion ot this road, and it seems
that the road instead of being de.
trinmeutal to the business interests
could be made to work to the ad. 09
vantage of the towns of Pickens 0
and Easley by running a' trolley a
from Pickens to a point on the line, 'I
Trolley lines are civilizers and b
builders of the rural districts, giv- tI
iug the farmer quick transit to and
from town, with all the advantage
of churches and schools, while the
toiler in the towns goes in the b
country along the line of the trolley r(
to make his horne. And what lots n
of pretty places they could find
along the line between Pickens and '
the mountains.

chivalry, on which one nuvy a ways
count. But their defects. are grave.
Obstinacy and quarrels lead them of

Miss Nellie South, late of Manchester,
Eng., writes from 86 Prince Arthur St.,
Montreal, Can., as follows:
" Peruna has made a wonderful
change in my life. It has brought me
health and happiness.
"Since my soventeenth year I havo
had female complaint and irregularitics,
My general health suff ered, I had pains
in my back and lower limbs, my eyes
were dim, and I became moroso and un
"Mother sought chs advice of our
family physician, who proscribed for
me, but I grew no better.
"I then read of Peruna and procured
a bottle. That one bottle was worth
more than all the doctor's medicine J
had taken previously.
"I cannot express my gratitude. Po
runa has been a great blessing to mo."
Nellie South.
