There is not a pound of meat for sal( in this town. The merchants are all out and are unable to get it shipped ov. er the railroad. Those who depend or them for a supply are in a grumbling mood. Elihu Griffin's mill on Rice's Crees was washed away by the freshet. C. L. Hollingsworth, Esq., informt us that his crop on Twelve Mile river ii totally ruined. His neighbors are no better off.

We find the following announcement I of: John J. Lewis for clerk of court W. G. Field for probate judge, J. Rile; Ferguson for sheriff, J. S. Carlisle an M. IS. Hendricks for school commis sioner. We also find an account of "the mos1 destructive freshet that within the memory of the oldest inhabitants ha ever visited this section. Rain fell fron' Sunday until . the following Saturda3 night, causing almost a total destrue tion of the crop and washing away al the bridges in the county except one oi two." A Suggestion A custom that I believe we ought tc change is that of opening the casket al the church and allowing a great throng of people, many or them from mere curiosity or because it is a custom, tc come up and gaze at the features of our beloved dead. And especially the custom of holding up little children te look into the colln. It always exciteF children and makes them nervous. A casket should not be opened at the church unless it he in the case ofta near' relative wvho could not p~ossibly get to the home before the burial, If anyone should desire especially to see the (lead let them go to the home and look be fore the funeral procession starts to the church or the cenmetery. I wvould rather remember my friends as they look while living. Children become so excited or stirredl by idle curiosity that frequently I have to get them to move away so I can get to the grave to pro nounce the benediction. Let the people think about it and if the suggestion is wvorth anything all right, if not pas it on. In this case I am trying to carry out the golden rule. I am trying to do by you like I would have you (d0 by me. Respectfully, D). W. II10Tvr. Park Ready For Play The members of the W. C. TI.

The campaign opened In Spartanburg Tuesday of this week. The speaking will take place on the court house lawn, as has been the custom heretofore. The speakingwill probably begin about 10 o'clock. The candidates will arrange the order 'of speaking among themselves, so it is impossible to tell who will "start the ball rolling and who will stop it." The greatest interest centers in the race for governor. Five candidates have filed their pledge for this office and will be here Thursday: R. I. Man ning, R. A. Cooper, Cole Blease, J M. DesChamps and John T. Duncan. There are two candidates for state treasurer and five for railroad commissioner, Cansler, of Tirzah, being one of the number. All others are without oppo sition. The candidates for governor were all given a patient hearing in Spartanburg Tuesday. All were generously applaud -d and there was no excitement. W. C. Mann's Platform Fellow Citizens of Pickens County: I ask for your support not on the de merits of my opponents, but on the fol lowing grounds: 1. The state or county should allow each thief so much per day until he has reimbursed the property taken or de stroyed by him; then he should serve his given sentence with the state or county. 2. 1 stand for an increased pension for old soldiers. 3. Seeing that the present game law is in reality merely a statute, I stand for the repealing of said law, or to so amend it that it will serve its purpose. (My amendment will be explained on. the stump.) r 4. 1 stand for the amending of the Jim Crow law, making it unlawful for any white person'or persons'to teach in any colored school, as it is toda'y MaqV - ful for, any negro to teach in a white school. 5. 1 stand for the adoption of the "County system" school law in this state. 6. 1 stand for better roads on a more economical maintenance plan; the estab lishment of a state highway commis sioner's office, the duties of said com missioner being similar to those of the state superintendent of education. There are numerous other needs that I might mention, but space forbids my doing so. I have attended the legislature for the last three years while in college at Co lumbia and have studied closely the needs of the people, and despite my brevity in years (this, of course, I am not responsible for, but am remedying every day), I hope, if elected toa man's position, to give you a man's service. I assure you that your vote will not be as seed cast by the wayside and that it wvill be applreciated. (adv) WV. CLARENCE MANN.
