Among the most notable events which ocurred in Six Mile during Christmas time, and one whose interest reaches far beyond local limits, was the mar riage of Mr. D. Claud Man'n to Miss Mattie E.

Te have always wondered and thought eg*vould like to know just how for a han would go for a woman, especially ')if it was a fellow's "best girl.," We uat .about got convinced Wednesday Iiight, December 20, when Mr. Luther d. Perkins of Central faced the rain, ind and mud and drove five miles to eU and prove his actions and a sworn L davit issued by the judge of probate tt he .loved Miss Geneva Burton bet "pLan any other woman. After~ tak ito consideration that Mr. Perkins &iven seventeen miles to make heaffidavit arid five miles more to comn - ly with its contents, saying nothing Sbout the scare he got when .he asked Sir\Ihis girl." His Honor, J. Alonzo ~r'31'own, N. P., decided it would be - ighty inhuman to decide against him, ud it is now Mr. and Mrs. Luther Per e'In of Central. B. IWell, on the 29th of December. about 1 a. in., we were further convinced hman would go a long way and go lirij many experiences for his best girl, or Mr. Oscar Woodson of Greenwood ame orn Thursday, December 28, to Six ~le, got Miss Ollie B. Smith in a b'uggy rid started for the residence-of J. ionzo Brown, N. P., for the purpose 'fforsaking the unmarried state. When nshort distance from Miss Smith's V oime the spring df the buggy broke and KIit. occupants fall in the mud. The uodent wrought such a change in the &ile's apparel that the trip had to be n'~doned until the next day, Friday, ~it 1 a. mi., when the trip was re Iired and was quite a success, After bp iniarriage ceremony the happy couple 'trded No. 12 for Columbia, and from $i' e will go to Greenworod to make Jit hoie, where Mr. Woodeon has a lton. Many congrattdations. B. ing to do business with.. t'~etising i s li ke '. nkingat a girl in the ~k. .oiiikOW what ~~doiig, bht nobody new Uerk of Uourt Assumes His Duties O..'S. Stewart, who was elected as clerk, of court of Pickens county in the recent election, assumed the duties of that office Tuesday, January 2, 1917. The new clerk is the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Stewart. He was born In 1868 on the west side of the ebunty and was reared on the farm and received his education in the common schools. His first job off the farm was in a store and he remained with the same firm fif teen years, during which time he took a business course in a Greenville busi ness college and served as bookkeeper for several. years. Men whom he had been associated with in a business way were among his strongest supporters in. his campaign for the clerk's office, which fact speaks well for any man in public or private life. Mr. Stewart is proba bly the first Pickens county officer ever elected who is exactly the same age as the county, having been born the year Pickens and Oconee were divioed into two counties. He had an even start with the county and it is safe to say he will keep up with it. For many years Pickens county has enjoyed the reputation of having the best clerk of court in the state, and we feel sure that it will continue to enjoy this distinction with Mr. Stewart in the office. He will-be assiste4 in the office by that excellent gentleman, J. M. Stewart, who was for many years clerk, and by Mrs. Lena Cox. Mr. Stewart is the first of the recent ly elected county officers to go intooffice. Auditor Christopher's term will expire in February, while Treasurer Stewart and Superintendent Hallum hold over until July 1. Christmas Tree at the Pickens Mill Saturday night, December 23, -as a happy occasion for this community. We had both an entertainment and Christ mas tree all in one. The school children gave the entertainment and Santa Claus gave the tree. Two trees, in fact, and both well-laden with gifts for both old and young At six-thirty the chilqren came troop ing in. Joy, mingled winh serious re sponsibility, shone in each little face; for getting into one's costume in crowd ed dressing rooms, and being ready when one's time came, was no small undertaking for sixty-odd smallpeople. The aim of the evenings undertaking was to set forth the true meaning of the Christmas festivities. The children acted their parts vell. Each little person was 'on the job" when the time came. The band gave good music, the decorations were beau-, tiful, the committees did excellent work, aid the whole occasion was a big suc cess, due largely to the management of Mr. Jewell, the superintendent of the Sanday school. CORRESPONDENT. Some Local Items. Along Route 3 An unusually large crowd attended the Christmas tree exercises held at Mountain Grove church Monday after noon, December 25. The house was more than filled by people of this and adjoining communities, and the tree was ladened with many beautiful gifts. Mr. Robert M. -Welborn actedi the part of Santa Claus and the girls thought he was "cute," while Mr. Perry Gillespie played the role of Mrs. Santa Claus very gracefully. Rev.

I, for one, am not satisfied with our roads and bridges. I ddn't think this is the time to lay up money for the coun ty, and it seems to me the present su pervisor mpst have a big sum to the credit of the county, and if this is not true we certainly are going to the bad for the past three years. Oconee county has improved her roads wonderfully for the last four years, and with a lot less money than we have been using. Greenville county is buildingfine roads, but using a lot of money, which I think she will be proud of, and deserves a lot of credit for making the start. Pickens county has no outlet across the mountains and very poor roads all over the county. Shall we sit still and con tinue to go backward in road building? I think everyone should speak out and say so if you are satisfied. I for one have no choice in who is su pervisor, even though he refuses to listen at my troubles, and think this is a pretty good plan, but I am wanting to see some results from the other fellow's plan. Lbt us all come together and work for the upbuilding of our roads and county, and let 1917 be known as the most pros perous year in our history in the im provement of our county and roads. Respectfully, SUBSCRIBER ON RoUTE 3 CARD OF THANKS Cadm of thanka published for one-halr cent ai word.

Hutchinson, general man ager of the Company store at Catee chee, will leave the 16th inst. for Pelzer to accept a similar position. We are sincerely sorry to lose such a man as Mr. Hutchinson, for his place not only in the store will be hard to fill, but he will be missed in the community as a citizen and in the church as an earnest and untiring worker. He has been sec retary of the Cateechee Sunday school for sometime and is always present. Rumor has it that Mr. G. F. Norris is soon to move to Greenville. but we have been unable to learn whether the rumor is true or not, as Mr. and Mrs. Norris are on an extended visit to Batesburg and Orangeburg. We hope the rumor is not true. The many friends of Mr. J. F. Wil liams, our *efficient postmaster and the cotton weigher at Cateechee, will be sorry to learn that he got his ankle broken last Saturday by- two bales of cotton falling on him. We hope he will soon be out again. ' B. ns Sent I ,'s PAPER The Sentinel wis first and. more correct in pub lishing many other Aews articles of importance.
