From the Far West,
Mr. Otis Cook, of Edmonton,
Alberta, Canada, was in Pick
ens county last week visiting
his friends, Mr. Avery Looper,
and the family of -Mr. 0. P.
Fields. Mr. Looper has been in
the West for some time but
came home about three months
ago on account of the serious ill
ness of his mother. Mr. Cook,
originally from Toccoa, Ga.,
met up with four Pickens coun
ty boys-M. A. Looper, Waddy
Fields, E. F. Hendricks and
Wade Williams-in Aberdeen,
Washington, and they being
from the same section of the
country soon became warm
friends. He recently left Aber
deen to try his fortune further
north and settled in the province
of Alberta, C nada, where he is
connected with the Hudson Bay
Co. Before leaving his Pickens
county friends he and Fields
made a bargain that the first
one who came home was to
go to see the other's people. Mr.
Cook was the first to come home
and he kept his part of the bar
gain. He brought good news
from the Pickens boys, and said
that each of them was prosper
ing. Mr. Fields is engaged in
the real estate business out
there. While in town they
spent a portion of the day with
Mr. Looper's friend, Mr. A. M.
House Burned.
A six room house, located jast
in front of Will Rosamond's
blacksmith shop and owned by
T. D. Harris, was completely
destroyed by fire about five
o'clock Sunday morning. The
house was occupied by Lyda
Edwards, a negress, and several
boarders. Practi::ally nothing
was saved from the flames, one
negro man awaking just in
time to save himself and lost all
his clothing. It ' not known
how it originated. Some think
it was incendiary from the fact
that there had been no fire in
the house since noon Saturday.
Lyda Edwards stated th'at there
were no matches in the house
as she had to go out and borrow
one to light her lamp with Sat
urday night. Mr. Harris carried
no insurance on the house. He
was also unfortunate enough to
lose a house in Anderson county
last year upon which he carried
no insurance.
Entertainment Monday Night.
