As a citizen of Pickens who is
interested in the welfare of the
town, I suggest the formation
y of an association, call it what
you will, for the improvement
s of the physical condition of our
+ community. Upon entering the
town, a stranger will at once be
r struck by the natural beauty of
r the place. Not so surely, how
ever, will one be struck by the
r artificial beauty. By artificial
- beauty is meant the beauty of
x clean streets, green lawns, well
kept public places, such as
churches, school houses and
grounds, court house and sur
e roundings; such as blooming
e flowers, etc.
y True there are a number of
s beautiful, well kept homes that
adorn our town, but these are
what they are because of the:
fact that their owners love the
beautiful, and that which is di
rectly under their control is
made beautiful by them. There
are also quite a number of ill
kept places, for instance, uninm
proved lots adorned with Hiles
of rubbish, b oken fences, drifts
_of leaves, growing weeds, and
like a merchant's sale poster,

Hookworm Cam
paign in County.
0 n e week's examination
shows the percentage of infec
tion with hookworms in Pickens
county to be high, which is as
follows: Central, 33 per cent
have it; Pickens, 46 per cent;
Liberty, 40 per cent; Easley,
43 2-3 per cent. The above is
based on few examinations at
each place, not over fifty at any
one place this week. The work
will be a great deal larger, how
ever, and a more acurate per
centage can be given.
Every one should take ad
vantage of this opportunity, es
pecially if they have any of the
following symptoms: Pale skin,
Iry hair, lack of muscular de
yelopment, retarded growth,
headache, indigestion, palpita
tion of the heart, heart burn,
and a history of ground itch.
All school children should be
be examined, for it is a known
fact that 50 per cent of the chi
dren in the South between the
ages of six and eighteen years
Df age have it. 25,000 cases
were treated in South Carolina
in 1912.
A!physician from the State
Board of Health can be found
in Central every Tuesday; Pick
ens, in the Court House, every
Wednesday; Pumpkintown, ev
ery Thursday; Liberty, every
Friday and in Easley, over Par
rish Bro's store, for five more
Examination and treatment
free to all.
Be sure and be examined as
this disease is serious and needs
to be stamped out as early as
possible. Ask t our physician
about it and be examined.
