Co. Treasurer s Term of Office
lhe following act was passed
at the last session of the legisla
ture. and explains itself:
"SECTION 1. Be it enacted by
the general assembly of the
State of South Carolina, That
the official term of office of coun
ty treasurers shall begin July 1
after each general election: Pro
vided, That the present county
treasurers' term of office be con
tinued until July 1, 1913.
'SECTIoN 2. That all Acts and
parts of Acts inconsistent with
this Act are hereby repealed."
Under this act whoever is
noninated in the primary elec
tion this year for county treas
urer in any county of the State

The Boy Scouts.
Not many people know any
thing about the Boy Scout or
ganization. Some have possibly
concluded that it is an excuse
for boys to idle away their time,
form bad habits and become un
ruly and mischevious. ' But
quite the contrary. If the boys
observe and carry out the rules
and principles of the order it is
one of the best things they can
be in.
Here is the oath or obligation
each boy takes when he joins:
1. To do my duty to my God
and my country, and to obey
the scout law.
2. To help other people at all
3. To keep myself physically
strong, mentally awake, and
morally straight.
Under the rules of the scout
law a boy is trained to be truth
ful, trustworthy, loyal, helpful,
friendly, courteous, kind, obedi
ent, cheerful, thrifty, brave,
clean and devout. They are
forbidden to smoke, chew, curse,
use bad or obscene language,
engage in questip.nable pass
times, iglleness, 'foolish sports,
and such like. It will be a
splendid training for any boy to
be a member of the scouts and
parents are encouraged to allow
heir bo i s to join. It is a prob
1m with many parents in Pick
~ns now on the closing of the
chool as to what the boys will
o until school opelis again.
The boy scouts will be helpful
o them and also help the par
mt" solve this problem.
There is an organization~ here
haded by Mr. Hagood Bruce
s Scout Master, A better se
ection of a leader could not
ave been made I Pickens.
fr. Bruce is a young man of
ober habits, moral life and a
