W HEREAS, A great number of our citizens have
undertaken to create a sentiment in favor of
cleaning up our city and have taken definite
steps to bring to execution this most impor
tant work, and it seems to mean so much for the health
and beauty of our town, and is a matter in which every
citizen is interested:
I, G. R. Hendricks, Mayor of the City of Pickens,
S. C., do hereby appoint Tuesday April 22d, 1913, as a
day for all citizens to co-operate in the general joint ef
fort to put the city of Pickens in proper shape by clean
ing out all rubbish and trash and decaying and germ
producing matter from the premises, cleaning off all va
cant lots, removing debris a. d trash, and doing all that
lies in our power to enhance the beauty and establish the
cleanliness of our homes and places of business, as well
as the streets and public places, with special effort to the
elimination of all unsightly and unsanitary accumula
In this connection I deem it well to call the attention
of the public to the existence of Ordinances of the City
of Pickens which prohibit the owner or keeper of places
in the city from allowing rubbish, tin cans, trash and
decaying matter from accumulating about such premi
ses, and also which prohibit refuse from stores and build
ings, to be thrown or emptied upon any street or vacant
place unless the same shall be promptly removed, and
also to other Ordinances which enjoin upon the public
the observation of sanitary regulations and the mainte
nance of adequate arrangements for the prevention of
any accumulat ions which might work against the
health, convenience and h - of the town. Thesa Or
dinances will henceforth be entorced, and the Chief of
Police and his assistants are hereby directed to see that
they are promptly and reasonably enforced.
I earnestly urge upon all citizens to co-operate in
this movement, without which co-operation the sanitary
ends sought to be obtained and made permanent can
hardly be accomplished. Respectfully,
April. 15, 1913. Mayor City Pickens.
A Timely a
In response to the call of the public through the col
umns of The Sentinel, the Pickens Chapter, U. D. C., at
its last meeting decided to undertake some ciyic work.
Accordingly several committees were formed to arrange
plans for cleaning up and berutifying our naturally
Sbeautiful little yillage. The U.D.C. earnestly beg all the
Staking. Throughout South Carolina April 10 was set
/apart as "clean up" day. Almost every town in the
Sstate responded, and as a result a healthier, better con
4dition of things will exist during~ the coming months.
SThe town council will be asked to co-operate and a day
~set apart in which to "clean up," and although a little
4behind the other cities and towns, we may profit by the
Sreport of their work. Every one gets careless and from
an extremely small beginning the pile of trash becomes
Isufficient to be dangerous to health and a cause of fire.~
The Board of Health cannot be expected to search
/out every nook and cranny for violation of its regula-~
'tions. All citizens should respond to the call of the U.~
SD. C. and assist in making their efforts a succes.
