J. K. Manley, who lives on
D. L, Barker's place in this sec

,that he claims to be 24 years
old. According to this the hen
was hatched sometime in the
year 1888. This hen was pre
sented to Mrs. Manley's father,
who was W. D. Hopkins, by
Pratt Bryant, a prominent citi
zen of Seneca. Mr. Bryant
ordered this hen at that time
for the purpose of raising chick
ens to fight other chickens. At
that day and time people were
interested in meeting at public
places and betting on chickens
and fighting them. This hen is
a full bred game and is very
small and seems to be hearty
and healthy. Mr. Manley says
she never was sick in her life.
She still lays and now has a
nice gang frying size. Mr.
Bryant gave this hen to W. D.
Hopkins in the year 1890 to
raise chickens on the shares and
Mr. Hopkins gave it'to his sec

from Mr. Bryant, of Seneca, to]

Our Legislative Letter
Editor Sentinel: The General
Assembly has not worked much
this week. Three days it did not
convene. One of those days,
Friday, it went to Winthron
college, arriving there about 9
a- m- We were met by the stu
dents with the heartiest greet
ing. Pickens members ;vere
taken charge of by students
from Pickens county. They
pointed out to us some of the
objects of interest. It is impos
sible to see all the interesting
objects at Winthrop in the space
of a few hours. As to the stu
dents they are a happy, health
ful, intellectual and beautiful
1ln1ring body of yong girls.
Pickens county should be very
proud of her young ladies at
the college. Miss Algood very
gracefully presided at the din
ner table. Being a rainy da)
all the exercises took place un
der shelter, which caused at
times quite a jam. The writer
has to acknowledge himself un
der many and lasting obliga
tions to Miss Major. He would
- t times get lost in the sea of
beauty. In yain did I look for
a representation of ladies from
any other county that were
more beautiful than ours.
Winthrop is doing .a grand
work. Would that all of our
girls could be educated up to
the standard of this institution.
The Legislators were entertain
ed by music both instrumental
and vocal, and speeches. After
partaking of a sandwich and
coffee we left for Columbia.

Death of Mrs.
G. W. Griffin
On January 21st, 1913, the
spirit of Mrs. Fannie A., wife ]
of Mr. George W. Griffin, took i
its flight from the sorrows and <
sufferings of earth to the joys
of Heaven.
Mrs. Griffin was a daughter j
>f the late Clark Young and t
was born near George's Creek (
:hurch in Pickens county, Aug- (
ist 3, 1855. She joined the t
:hurch at Cross Roads and was I
)aptized by Rev. Thomas Loop- 1,
tr about 30 years ago. She was I
narried to G. W. Griffin Dee- I
,mber 31, 1874. Mrs. Griffin v
eaves an only daughter, Mrs. t
'. T. Hughes, of Greenville. t
)he was the last member of a s
arge family. It was a rather i:
ingular co-incidence that four- v
>rothers-in-law were present at c
he burial; viz., Messrs. Alva t
lcWhorter, M. B. Richardson, t
]arle Smith and G. W. Griffin. ii
Mrs. Griffin was a good wo- 11
aan and for seyeral years had c
een in feeble health. ii
After the burial her daughter y

rriffin had written on Sunday, i
uring the year 1911, while her m
usband was at church. In the cl

Pickens Man In
vents Hay Saver
John F. Harris, of Pickens,
:as invented a device that
>romises to revolutionize the
-uring and saving of hay. He
-alls it the Dixie Daisy Hay
tack Ventilator and has ap
)lied for a patent on it. - It is a
ripod, and the means or basis
f ventilation is an open
hamber or flue in the cen
er of the haystack between the
ngs of the tripod which becomes
irger as the process of curing
rogresses and the hay shrinks.
t has a natural tendency down
ard from a spike above down
o and against a spike below,
hereby Producing an air pas
age below each spike, connect
3g the open air on the outside
rith the air chamber in the
enter of the haystack permit
.ng the gases to pass out from
ie center or the air to pass into
at thirty-two points of venti
ttion, which renders the pro
3ss of heating and combustion
npossible. No matter how
,et when stacked it never
ioulds and never rots.
This is the first device ever
ivented for saving of hay and
,e look for Mr. Harris to be
me famous for this invention.
